We Respect Our Customers

The North Side Bank & Trust Company is dedicated to providing excellent personal service and care to our customers. In our commitment to deliver such superior service, we recognize and respect our customers privacy by protecting our customers personal and financial information. North Side Bank pledges to you that your trust is our top priority and we will maintain your privacy to the highest level in compliance with the following:

“We”, “our”, and “us” means The North Side Bank & Trust Company. When we use the words “you” and “your” we refer to any consumer or customer who has a continuing relationship with us such as:

  • Deposit account
  • Loan account
  • Individual retirement account
  • Trust account
  • Bank transactions

Nonpublic personal information is the nonpublic portion of personally identifiable information about you that we collect in association with financial services or products that you have with our bank.

A nonaffiliated third party is any firm that is not an affiliate of our bank.


We collect, retain and utilize only necessary information about you for lawful business purposes. Your information is obtained either directly from you or from other sources necessary during the course of our business relationship. We collect information from the following sources:

  • Information we receive from you on applications or other forms
  • Information about your transactions with us
  • Information about your transactions with nonaffiliated third parties
  • Information from a consumer reporting agency


Your relationship with us is important; therefore, we will not disclose your nonpublic personal information to nonaffiliated third parties except for the following:

  • The information is provided to help complete a customer initiated transaction
  • The customer requests or permits it
  • The information is required by or allowed by law
  • In accordance with the Fair Credit Reporting Act, we share information with reputable information reporting agencies
  • The information is necessary to the companies that provide support services for us such as imprinting checks or providing marketing assistance
  • On occasion, we sell a particular line of business or function (for example, mortgage servicing rights). Classically, a core part of that business is its customer database. The North Side Bank & Trust Company reserves the right, in such conditions, to transfer ownership of the related customer database to the purchaser.

We ensure the privacy of your information disclosed to our service providers by contractual agreements or privacy statements limiting them to using the information only for services provided to us.

*Note: Nonaffiliated third parties may have access to information related to our customer’s that has been obtained independently of us (through credit bureaus or public records for example). Mailings and solicitations based on this information are not within our control.


We continually make every effort to maintain complete and accurate information about you and your accounts. We have strict procedures in place to ensure that your information is current and correct in accordance with reasonable commercial standards. If you find any mistakes regarding your information, please call customer service at the number provided in the “Contact Us” section of this disclosure.


We are committed to the security of your financial and personal information. We value your trust and take every precaution necessary to keep your information secure by way of the following:

  • All bank employees are aware of their responsibility to respect and protect your confidential information. Customer information is accessible only to employees who require it to provide products, services or support.
  • We ensure all bank employees are bound by our code of conduct governing the use of customer information and that they are subject to disciplinary action if they fail to do so.
  • We uphold physical, electronic and procedural safeguards to protect customer information.
  • Our operations and data processing are in a secure environment that guards customer information from being accessed by outside sources.


If you have any questions regarding the confidentiality of your customer information, please speak with a customer service representative by visiting any one of our branches or by calling 1-513-542-7800. You may also e-mail us by logging on to our website at: www.northsidebankandtrust.com


Any time you enter a transaction or provide personal information (such as an account number or password) in our customer information areas, we encrypt it using Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology. SSL protects information as it crosses the Internet. You can tell if you are visiting a secure area within a Web site by looking at the symbol on the bottom of your browser screen. If you are using Netscape Navigator or Internet Explorer, you will see either a lock or a key. When the symbol appears unbroken or the padlock is in the locked position, your session connection is taking place via a secure server.

  • Cookies. When you interact with our Bank E-Z Internet Banking sites, we strive to make that experience simple and convenient. When you come to our Bank E-Z site, our Internet server sends a cookie to your computer. A cookie is simply an electronically transmitted file that holds small pieces of information. When you navigate through Bank E-Z, your browser "requests" pages for you to view, and that request will include the information stored in the cookie we previously sent to your computer. This process is like an electronic "handshake" between our system and your computer; the information exchanged allows us to recognize your browser.
  • Cookies, as well as data taken from them, do not identify you personally. They merely recognize your browser. Unless you choose to identify yourself to us, either by responding to a promotional offer, opening an account, or registering for an online service, you remain anonymous to us.
  • "Session Cookies": Session cookies exist only during an online session with North Side Bank. Session cookies allow you to conduct transactions or requests through Bank E-Z. An example is a request to see your account balance. Without the session cookie information, we would not be able to complete your Bank E-Z transactions securely. Session cookies help us make sure you are who you say you are after you have logged in. We do not sell this or any other information about you to other Web sites, merchants or financial institutions.
  • Bank E-Z Message System and Contact-Us from our Web Page. These means of communication are an important channel between you and us. We encrypt all information shared between these channels.
