"Nonpublic personal information” is nonpublic information about you that we may obtain in connection with providing a loan and/or grant to you. This could include information such as account balances, payment history and overdraft history.
We restrict access to nonpublic personal information to those employees who need to know that information to provide your loan and/or grant, a non-affiliated third party who needs to know for us to process your loan and/or grant, or as required by law. Non-affiliated third parties may include attorneys, abstract companies, private mortgage insurance companies, appraisal companies, realtors, etc. A disclosure required by law would be a disclosure by us that is ordered by a court of competent jurisdiction as well as other disclosures required by applicable federal or state statutes or regulations.
