The Policy applies to the treatment of information that is provided by you or collected through any of our online interfaces, including Mobile Banking and Online Banking. It also explains how we collect, use, and share information based on users’ interactions with online advertisements, both on the Services and on online interfaces owned by third parties. Please read this notice carefully to understand how we handle user privacy.
We will use and share any information that we collect from or about our customers in accordance with the Stockman Bank Privacy Notice.
Information We may Collect
In connection with your use of Mobile Banking, Stockman Bank of Montana and its affiliates and service providers, may receive names, domain names, addresses, passwords, telephone and device numbers, the content of messages, data files and other data and information provided by you or from other sources in connection with Mobile Banking or the Software (collectively “User Information”). We also collect location data to enable a marketing message delivery software, even when the App is closed, not in use or in the background.
How We Collect Your Information
We collect personal information from you or about you when you provide this information to us directly. For example, we may obtain personal information when you enroll in Mobile or Online Banking, apply for an account online, contact customer support or otherwise interact with us. We may also receive information about you from other online and offline sources, such as public databases, social media platforms and other third parties.
In addition, we may collect information about your activity on the Services automatically using tracking technologies, such as cookies, and pixel tags.
- There are two types of cookies: temporary and permanent. Temporary cookies are used and tracked by the browser to pass information and are deleted once the browser is shut down. Permanent cookies are stored on your system and can be accessed again for multiple visits. Permanent cookies usually have an expiration date and will be automatically deleted from your system at that time.
- Internet Banking uses temporary cookies and may use permanent cookies, but never passes private information through cookies. Internet Banking also uses a different kind of temporary cookie known as a session cookie, a non-persistent cookie, or a pre-expired cookie. This cookie is used as part of the stringent security measures in Internet Banking to make sure that each page in Internet Banking is not cached or saved on your system. This means that each page must be retrieved from the Web server. This cookie is deleted when a user logs or times out of Internet Banking or if the browser window is closed and ensures that another user on the same computer cannot access the previous user's Internet Banking session or information.
- If you use Enhanced Security, Internet Banking may place a secure permanent cookie on your computer. This secure cookie is unique, and when used in combination with your login information, creates a unique way to identify you to the system. For every login attempt after you add extra security to a computer, this secure cookie is validated along with the login identification you normally enter. This secure cookie is only used to validate your identity and does not contain any personal information.
- Certain applications on mobile devices may transmit information to us about your location. An example includes your physical location when you search for a nearby ATM using your mobile device. We may use that information to improve the products and services we provide to you as well as improving our services generally in your area.
Information collected through tracking technologies is used for many purposes including:
- Useful features to simplify your experience when you use or return to the Services
- Deliver relevant content based on your preferences, usage patterns and location
