To help the government fight the funding of terrorism and money laundering activities, Federal Law requires all financial institutions to obtain, verify and record information that identifies each individual who opens an account. We also do this to help us to identify others listed in the application. What this means for you: we will ask for information to help us and others identify persons described in the application, including dates of birth, etc. We may also ask to see other identifying documents. We may use all information now and later to help verify account users and to perform and enforce account transactions and terms, except as prohibited by law. Our Privacy Policy also applies but does not supersede this notice. For information on how we protect your privacy, please read our Privacy Policy.
