At Huron Valley State Bank, we’re concerned about security on the Internet. That’s why we have carefully chosen the online hosts that we use. All of our links to your account or personal information require Secure Socket Layer technology (SSL). This technology secretly encodes information that is being sent over the Internet between your computer and the host’s database. It encrypts this information, preventing a third party from viewing and intercepting your personal information. This method is commonly used in Internet applications that require security and privacy for any sensitive data.
The following are safe guards we have put in place to enhance your online banking experience:
- Passwords: Before you can access our online banking site, you are required to enter your User ID and password. Without the proper login, you cannot see or use any web pages with the product. Every password must consist of four to eight alpha and numeric characters.
- Secure Connection: When you visit the secured web site, it automatically sends you its certificate and your browser displays a lock (or key) icon on the status bar.
- Data Encryption: When you access your account information or any sensitive data, a 128-bit encryption system is automatically activated to protect the transmission of information from unauthorized sources.
Even with these security systems in place, we ask that you share in the responsibility of keeping your financial information secure by taking the following precautions:
- Make sure you are using a browser with the highest level of security available.
- Remember to always click “Exit” or “Log Off” when leaving your online account information.
- Never share your password with anyone. Memorize your password and do not write it down.
- Be alert for potential fraudulent transactions, check your account activity frequently and notify us immediately of any suspicious transactions.
Regardless of these efforts, the open nature of the Internet makes it impossible to guarantee absolute confidentiality in all circumstances.
