Disclosures

A lot comes with your NorthCountry membership. Here are some of the details.

Your privacy is important to us, and we want to ensure you understand how your information is shared and used. Our purpose is to protect your identity and any information that may be collected about you. Please read through the resources below and contact us if you have any questions.

Data Sharing

Other financial websites and mobile apps (account aggregators, tax preparers, money management tools, etc.) may request access to the personal information and account data we normally safeguard for you within Online and Mobile Banking. If you grant them access, the privacy, security, and accuracy of your information will no longer be under our strict control. Please be cautious before disclosing your personal information or login credentials to third parties. If you ever need to revoke a third party's access to your banking information, we strongly recommend changing your password immediately. Contact us at 1-800-660-3258 if you need assistance.

How can you control your information?

We use cookies to provide you with the best possible experience while visiting our website. Cookies can be disabled or removed by accessing your web browser settings. However, due to a lack of standards across all browsers, sites may not respond to "do not track" browser settings. We do not monitor your online activities after you leave our website.

Google Marketing

We collect data through cookies to support a positive user experience and customize content for return visitors. Third-party vendors, such as Google, are used for advertising purposes and may use data to serve ads based on someone’s past visits to our website or use of our mobile app. Please review the types of cookies used by Google for more information. To opt out of Google’s use of cookies or device identifiers, visit Google’s Ad settings. You can also choose to enable the Google Analytics opt-out browser add-on.

We've also implemented Google Analytics Advertising Features. Advertising features include:

  • Remarketing with Google Analytics
  • Google Display Network Impression Reporting
  • Google Analytics Demographics and Interest Reporting
  • Integrated services that require Google Analytics to collect data for advertising purposes, including the collection of data via advertising cookies and identifiers.

NorthCountry Mobile App

Our app collects location data to enable push notifications, geofences, and beacons even when the app is closed or not in use and it is also used to support advertising.

How we use the information we collect

Monitoring your use of our website and mobile app provides us with important information about how we can make them function better for you, such as by making them easier to navigate, customizing your content, and adding new features to improve your experience. We also use contact information you provide to reach out to you with information you may find interesting, or information you may have requested from us.

To provide you with the best possible online experience, we sometimes partner with other organizations we trust. We refer to these organizations as "third-party vendors". Each of these vendors is required to provide us with proof they follow our stringent security protocols as a condition of our partnership. Although we perform due diligence of our vendors prior to signing agreements for their services, when you leave our website, we can not certify the privacy and security of the sites you are entering, and the content within the third-party site is solely the responsibility of the site's owner. If you have any concerns about continuing online with your request, please feel free to schedule an appointment to meet with us in person.
