We may also share this information with other companies that are not in our family of companies. This information may be shared with financial service providers (such as mortgage bankers, securities broker-dealers, and insurance companies), and with non-financial companies that perform services on our behalf, including marketing.
If you prefer that we not disclose nonpublic personal information about you to companies other than our family of companies, you may "opt out" of those disclosures; that is, you may direct us not to make those disclosures (other than those permitted by law). Each owner of a joint account may "opt out" separately; by "opting out", you instruct us not to share the information associated with your name on any and all accounts with us.
If you wish to "opt out" of disclosures to these other companies, call us toll free at 1-800-541-3891.
You may not "opt out" of certain sharing of nonpublic personal information to third parties. This includes information shared as required by law, for example, to government entities in response to subpoenas.

Confidentiality and Security
We restrict access to nonpublic personal information about you to those employees who need to know that information to provide products or services to you. We maintain physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards that comply with federal regulations to guard your nonpublic personal information. Since we believe that keeping your trust is very important, we will continue to adhere to the policies and practices described in this Notice even if you should have inactive or closed accounts with us.
