Additional Privacy Information
Maintaining Personal Nonpublic Information Accuracy
At First Bank of Miami we have procedures in place to ensure customer account nonpublic information is complete, accurate, and processed in a timely manner. However, should you ever believe that our records contain inaccurate or incomplete information about you, please notify us. We will investigate your concerns and correct any inaccuracies.
Under the Fair Credit Reporting Act you have the right to notify us if you believe we have reported inaccurate information about your account to any Consumer Reporting Agency. Such notices should be sent in writing and include your complete name, current address, social security number, telephone number, account number, type of account, specific item of dispute and the reason why you believe the information reported is in error. Send your notice to: First Bank of Miami, Operations Department, 9851 North Kendall Drive, 3rd Floor, Miami, FL 33176.
Safeguarding Personal Nonpublic Information
At First Bank of Miami we have established physical and electronic security procedures that comply with federal standards to protect your nonpublic personal and confidential information from unauthorized access.
An example of these procedures is that customer nonpublic personal information is protected from being altered while in transmission to the Bank by encryption technology known as Secure Sockets Layer (SSL). SSL manipulates the data into a format unreadable to humans as it leaves the customer’s workstation. Furthermore, the data in transit is split up into packets that travel separately and are not reorganized until they filter through the Bank’s router. So if the encryption code should be solved by an unauthorized computer, the agent is likely to only be in possession of individual packets which would be out of context with the whole data.
Protecting Customer Information
We restrict access to information about you to those employees who need to know that information to provide products or services to you. All employees are educated in the need for confidentiality and customer privacy. Additionally, we maintain physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards to protect this information.
Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act
We do not knowingly solicit data from children, and we do not knowingly market to children. We recognize that protecting children identities and privacy online is important and that the responsibility to do so rest with both the online industry and with parents.
Information about Former Customers
We do not disclose information about former customers, except as permitted or required by law.
Our Primary Concern
At First Bank of Miami our primary concern is maintaining your confidence in our bank. We are committed to ensuring your nonpublic personal information is kept confidential. If you have any questions, please stop at our Operations Department or call us at (305) 459-5279
