West Island Trust Privacy Disclosure

 

At West Island Trust, we recognize that our customers and other visitors are concerned about privacy. We want you to be confident that we make every effort to safeguard the security and confidentiality of your nonpublic personal information.

 

Financial Companies Choose How They Share Your Personal Information. Federal law gives consumers the right to limit some but not all information sharing.  Federal law also requires us to tell you how we collect, share, and protect your personal information.  Please read this notice carefully to understand what we do.  This Privacy Notice is being provided on behalf of West Island Trust. It describes the general policy of West Island Trust regarding the personal information of customers and former customers.

How Information Is Collected.  All financial companies need to share customers’ personal information to run their everyday business.  In the section below, we list the reasons financial companies can share their customers’ personal information; the reasons West Island Trust chooses to share; and whether you can limit this sharing. We collect your personal information, for example, when you: make a payment, make a wire transfer, give us your contact information; pay us by check; pay your account by wire transfer; and, provide employment information.  We also collect your personal information from others, such as consumer reporting agencies (credit bureaus).


Confidentiality and Security of Collected Information.  West Island Trust restricts access to collected information about you to individuals who need to know such collected information in order to perform services in connection with your account.  To protect your personal information from unauthorized access and use, we use security measures that comply with federal law.  West Island Trust maintains physical safeguards (like restricted access), electronic safeguards (like encryption and password protection), and procedural safeguards (such as authentication procedures) to protect collected information about you.  These measures include computer safeguards and secured files and buildings.  We also restrict access to trained and supervised employees and third parties who agree to follow our policies and procedures.

Why Can’t I Limit All Sharing?  Federal law gives you the right to limit only: sharing for affiliates’ everyday business purposes – information about your credit worthiness; affiliates from using your information to market to you; and, sharing for non-affiliates to market to you.  West Island Trust does not share your personal information in ways that would allow you to limit such sharing.
