Privacy Policy

What we do

How does THE HARVARD STATE BANK protect my personal information?

To protect your information, we use security measures that comply with federal law. We do not know your PIN or online password and will not ask for it at anytime.

How does THE HARVARD STATE BANK collect my personal information?

We collect your personal information, for example, when you
  • apply for a loan or open an account
  • make deposits or withdrawals from your account or pay your bills
  • show your government-issued ID
We also collect your personal information from others, such as credit bureaus, affiliates, or other companies.

Why can't I limit all sharing?

Federal law gives you the right to limit only
  • sharing for affiliates' everyday business purposes – information about your creditworthiness
  • affiliates from using your information to market to you
  • sharing for nonaffiliates to market to you
State laws and individual companies may give you additional rights to limit sharing.

What happens when I limit sharing for an account I hold jointly with someone else?

Your choices will apply to everyone on your account – unless you tell us otherwise.
