Security Statement

We have developed this information as a service to you. We care about you and the safety of your personal information. Follow the guidance below to keep yourself and your identity safe.

YOUR SECURITY IS IMPORTANT TO US. Please be aware that our organization and banking structure encompasses many states, as such the internet banking websites we use may redirect you to additional http://www.aaa.com URL domain names.

ONLINE SAFEGUARDS

User ID and Password - Our system is designed to limit online account access to those possessing the User ID and Password associated with your account(s).

Encryption - We have encryption technology in place (currently 128 bit SSL) that allows for the protection of data in transit between your computer and ours. The closed lock icon will usually indicate whether a communication session is encrypted.

Firewalls - Our computer systems include "firewalls" that we monitor and that are designed to protect against unauthorized access to our systems.

Timeout - Our system is designed to log you off automatically after several minutes of inactivity.

Account Number - Generally, we only display the last four digits of your account numbers online (to prevent people looking over your shoulder from seeing the full number).

Cookies - We use a cookie (a small file transferred to your computer's hard drive) to maintain authentication between our application server and your browser. When registered users terminate their connection to our site, this cookie is deleted. If your browser does not accept cookies, we are unable to maintain authentication between your browser and our application. We also use a persistent cookie to personalize the display of information for you. If your computer does not accept cookies, you may be unable to access information from us online.

Things You Should Do To Protect Yourself Online:

User ID and Password - Please follow some simple rules to protect yourself:

  • Never disclose your User ID or Password to anyone else
  • Memorize your User ID or Password, don't write them down
  • Change your password frequently
  • Don't use birth dates, names, or other easily guessed letters or numbers
  • Don't be taken in:

    we will never send you an email asking for your user id or password

Log Out - When you are done online, log out (look for the log out link). We suggest you do this before you shut your computer off and before you surf to any other websites.

Email - Don't use email to send us sensitive information (such as Social Security numbers, account numbers, etc.).

"Phishing," Spoofs, Hoaxes and other Deceptive Emails- Be careful when responding to emails that look like they are from us, a regulator or an auditor. Many thieves or hackers will send you an email that will ask you to click on a link that takes you to a website (or pop-up window) where you will be asked to "confirm," "verify," "update" or otherwise provide sensitive information (such as your account number, password, PIN, or Social Security number). Sometimes these emails will falsely say that your account will be shut down if you don't act quickly. Don't be intimidated by these threats. These links, websites and pop-up windows may look like ours, but will really just take you to the thief. Clicking on one of these links can expose your computer to viruses and spyware, even if you don't supply the sensitive information they want.

We will never send you an email that asks you to verify an account number, password, PIN or Social Security number.

If you receive such a request, it is probably fraudulent. If you have any doubts about whether an email from us is authentic, don't reply to it, open any attachment or use the link in the email. To contact the bank please find the applicable telephone number on the Contact Us page.

Your security is important to us.

Please be aware that our organization and banking structure encompasses many states, as such the internet banking websites we use may redirect you to additional http://www.aaa.com URL domain names.

Spam - Don't open attachments in emails if you don't know who the sender is. Attachments can contain viruses and spyware. Delete unwanted email.

Links to other Websites - If you click a link to another website, that website may collect, use and disclose information about you in ways that are different from what we do. You should review that website's policies. We are not responsible for what the operators of other websites do with your information.

Security for your own Computer - Protect your own computer by:

  • Keeping your operating system and browser up to date
  • Installing a personal firewall
  • Installing anti-virus software and keep it up to date
  • Scanning your computer for spyware on a regular basis
  • Not downloading programs or files from unknown sources
  • Installing a pop-up blocker from a trustworthy source
  • Disconnecting from the internet when you are not online

Additional Things You Should Do To Protect Yourself And Your Identity:

Your Account Number - Don't share your account number with anyone. Don't give your account number to someone over the phone, especially if you did not call them. Beware that some people may try to trick you by saying that they need your account number in order to award you a prize. Store new and canceled checks, account statements and other sensitive information in a safe place.

Don't Share your Cards - Don't share your ATM, debit or credit cards with anyone.

Review your Accounts - Review your online account information frequently and your statements promptly. Balance your checkbook every month. If you don't receive a statement, let us know right away.

Review your Credit Reports - Obtain and review a copy of your credit report periodically. This is one way to find out about identity theft.

Your Mailbox - Check your mailbox every day, don't leave your mail for long periods of time for thieves to steal. Consider dropping your outgoing mail in a US Postal Service mailbox instead of your home mailbox. Use Online BillPay and sign up for e-Statements.

Your Telephone- Don't give sensitive information to unknown callers. Hang up and call the company you yourself, using a phone number that you located in the phone book or your own records.

We will never make an unsolicited telephone call requesting sensitive information from you.

Your Garbage - Shred materials containing sensitive information before you recycle or discard them.

Identity Documents - Don't carry your Social Security card, birth certificate or passport in your wallet or purse.

Social Security Number - Don't print your Social Security number or driver's license on your checks.

If You Are A Victim Of Identity Theft, Follow These Three Steps:

  1. Contact the fraud departments of each of the three major credit bureaus (Equifax, Experian, and TransUnion) and report that your identity has been stolen. Ask that a "fraud alert" be placed on your file and that no new credit be granted without your approval.
  2. For any accounts that have been fraudulently accessed or opened, contact the security departments of the appropriate creditors or financial institutions to close these accounts. To contact the bank, please find the applicable telephone number on the Contact Us page.
  3. File a report with your local police or the police where the identity theft took place. Get a copy of the report in case the bank or credit card company needs proof of the crime at a later date.
