Online Privacy Policy Statement

Fairfield County Bank recognizes your need for privacy and security as you visit our website. Described below are our policies to protect your online privacy.

We Do Not Use Cookies On Our Website
Many financial institutions use "cookies" to collect information about those who visit their sites. The Bank does not use cookies on its website (except as described below). That means you can visit our site without identifying yourself or giving us any information about yourself. We will not obtain any information that identifies you personally unless you choose to provide such information to us.

Use of Cookies On Our Secure Online Banking Site and Online Loan Center.
Please be advised that the Bank uses cookies on our secured "Connect24 Online Banking" site and our Online Loan Center. A cookie is a piece of data "handed" to your browser. The Bank uses cookies inside the secure environment to keep track of your session data. It basically tells our system that you've already logged in as a valid user. Without the cookie data, you would have to login every time you wanted to move to another page. When you hit the Exit button to leave the secured site, the cookie data is flushed from your system.

Secured Socket Layer
The Bank has designed this website for use with web browsers that use Secured Socket Layer (SSL) technology. Secured Socket Layer is an encryption method that protects the information transmitted between our website and your computer. The Bank requires that your browser be configured for 128 bit encryption. If your browser is not configured for 128 bit encryption, you can obtain further information about 128 bit encryption from the manufacturer of your browser.

Electronic Mail
Our website contains a form that you can complete and send to the Bank over the Internet. This form requests information about you (such as your address and telephone number). This form is encrypted when it is sent over the Internet which helps protect this information from being intercepted as it is transmitted over the Internet. This is a more secure way of sending us information than sending us general public e-mail. Therefore, we suggest that you always use our e-mail form whenever you wish to send us e-mail. Whenever you communicate with us via Internet e-mail, we will retain the content of the form, the e-mail address and our response. This allows us to maintain an audit trail of our contact and to provide you with the product, service or information you may have requested.

Firewalls and Routers
We use firewalls and routers to create a "doorway" between the Internet and our internal computer network. This doorway restricts access to our internal computer network. Data transmissions that are sent through our firewall and routers to our internal computer network are subject to verification by the firewalls and routers. We are able, thus, to control the data transmissions that gain access to our internal computer network.

Changes to Our Privacy Policy
We may at times change this online privacy policy statement. We might, for example, change our online privacy policy to conform with changes that have been made to state or federal law. Or we might change our online privacy policy so that it conforms with changes made to our website.

Reliance on Online Privacy Policy Statement
By displaying this privacy policy statement, we are not modifying any existing written agreements that we have with customers. This privacy policy statement should not be construed as a contract of any kind.
