Privacy Policy

Updated: May 31, 2018

 

Thank you for your trust in IFEB.  We are a values-based company and we strive to live those values every day.   We know one of the reasons you have chosen IFEB is because you want to do business with a bank which shares your same values.  Protecting your privacy is living these values.

One of the most important responsibilities we have is to protect your personal privacy and financial data.  We take this very seriously.  We do not sell or rent your personal information to anyone, for any reason.  Your privacy is not for sale.

We gather customer information for two reasons.  First, it is the law. Under the Bank Secrecy Act we are required to “Know your Customer”; also known as “KYC”.  Governments around the world want to ensure the banking system is not used for illegal purposes.  These include activities such as money-laundering, funding terrorist activities, or buying of illegal merchandise such a Tomahawk Missile.  We fully understand these requirements and comply fully with law.  We do not want IFEB accounts to be used for this reason.

Second, we want our communication with you to be timely and relevant.  In today’s digital and social-media driven world, individuals publicly share information about themselves.  In return for sharing this information, individuals expect something in return.  For IFEB, this means helping you navigate life making good financial decisions.

 

Privacy and Permission

IFEB understands the concerns about privacy and the frustration many consumers have about how their private personal information is being taken unknowingly. If we need access to your personal private information we will ask for your permission first.  It should be your decision, not something taken from you.

 

Overview
