Privacy Policy

Protecting the privacy and security of your personal information is a top priority for TCI, Inc. This Privacy Policy Notice will help you understand how we safeguard and use information, and applies to all applicants, customers or former customers who obtain financial services from us for personal, family or household purposes. It also identifies the sources from which we collect non-public personal information about you, details the measures we take to secure that information, and describes the information about you that we may share with our affiliates and with nonaffiliated third parties. This Privacy Policy Notice also addresses information sharing with credit reporting agencies. This Privacy Policy Notice explains how you can exercise your privacy rights by electing to opt-out of certain information sharing practices that we would otherwise apply to your non-public personal information.

We may use a software "cookie" when accessing our Online Banking product. No "cookie" will contain any information that would enable anyone to contact you via telephone, email or U.S. Mail. (A "cookie" is a small piece of information which a website stores in the web browser of your PC and can later retrieve. A "cookie" cannot be read by a website other than the one that set the "cookie." You can set your web browser to inform you when "cookies" are set to prevent "cookies" from being set.)

We may also disclose non-public personal information about you to non-affiliated third parties as permitted by law. We may disclose all of the information we collect, as described above, to companies that perform marketing services on our behalf, or to other financial institutions with whom we have joint marketing agreements. We do not knowingly solicit data from children, and we do not knowingly market to children. We recognize that protecting children's identities and privacy online is important and that the responsibility to do so rests with both the online industry and with parents.

Security Procedures

We have safeguards to keep your non-public personal information confidential and secure. We restrict access to non-public personal information about you to those employees who need to know that information to provide products or services to you. We maintain physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards that comply with federal standards to guard your non-public personal information.

We also deploy the following technologies to protect you:

We use Secure Socket Layer (SSL) 128-bit encryption to encode and decode any information that is sent over the Internet between your computer and our server. Anyone “listening in” on the data transmission would hear only unintelligible gibberish.
Our server is located behind a firewall/router to prevent unauthorized people from being able to retrieve any applicant data stored there.
