At First Alliance Bank, our mission is to meet the desires of our customers by being competent and successful relationship managers. As financial services professionals entrusted with sensitive financial information, we respect the privacy of our customers and are committed to treating customer information responsibly.
We believe the confidentiality and protection of customer information, within our virtual branch or our traditional bank, is one of our fundamental responsibilities. And while information is critical to providing quality service, we recognize that one of our most important assets is our customers' trust. Thus, the safekeeping of information on visitors to our website, and current and former customers is a priority for First Alliance Bank.
Whether to study, socialize, play games or learn something new, it's likely your children are spending time online. And as a parent, chances are that you're spending time thinking about ways to make sure they make smart and safe choices when they do. Among the many choices they're faced with online is how to deal with their personal information.
We recognize that protecting children's identities and privacy online is critically important and that the responsibility to do so rests with both the online industry and with parents.
The Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) was passed to give parents increased control over what information is collected from their children online and how such information is used. The law applies to websites and services directed to, and which knowingly collect information from children under the age of 13. First Alliance Bank respects the privacy of children. We do not knowingly collect personal or contact information from children. First Alliance Bank is prohibited from conditioning a child's
participation in an activity on the child disclosing more personal information than is
reasonably necessary to participate.
Our website contains links to other internet sites that may be of interest to your children. Although our intent is to provide links to other quality sites, we cannot guarantee the safety and privacy of information provided to these linked sites. We are not responsible for the privacy, security, and use practices of nonaffiliated third parties to which our website may link. Parents should review the privacy policies of these sites closely before allowing children to provide any personally identifiable information. Also, please read the External Links Disclaimer section.
Although First Alliance Bank does not collect personal or contact information from
children, some websites do.
Please make sure your children know what information should be private, and what information might be appropriate for sharing. We encourage you to monitor your children's internet use and to take an active role in giving / denying consent to websites that want to collect personal information about your child. Please note that if your child voluntarily discloses his or her name, email address, or other personal information, he or she may receive unsolicited messages from other parties. On the other hand, sharing some personal information may allow them to participate in certain activities or to get emails about promotions and events they're interested in.
