We limit the amount and type of customer information we collect and retain to that which is required to establish and manage customer accounts, understand customer needs, provide customer services, offer new products and services, and comply with legal and regulatory requirements.

We limit employee access to customer information to those employees with a legitimate business need for the information. We have policies, procedures, employee orientation, and communication programs designed for the protection of customer information. It is the responsibility of each FirstMayfield employee to comply with our Customer Information Privacy Principles policies and procedures. Failure to comply subjects our employees to disciplinary action.

We have implemented internal controls and procedures designed to keep and report customer information as accurately and completely as possible. We respond promptly when a customer tells us his or her information is not accurate. To ensure the accuracy, timeliness, and thoroughness of information, we use only reputable sources of data to cross-reference against application information. Information that you submit during the application process is not subject to modification.

FirstMayfield Protects Information on Our Web-sites:
We protect the privacy of customer information sent to and from our web-sites. We back our Privacy Principles with some of the best security technology available. We use SSL (Secure Socket Layer) Technology to ensure that your application information cannot be accessed during transmission to our servers. We also use SSL authentication technology to confirm the identity of both the computer ending and the computer receiving your application information. This safeguard keeps unauthorized people and companies from accessing your information. We also use technical security measures to prevent unauthorized access to data stored on our secure servers.
Restrictions on the Disclosure of Account Information:
State and federal agencies require us to provide certain information regarding the number of financing applications submitted to us. This information, when disclosed, is in aggregate form and does not contain any of your personally identifiable information. State and federal examiners may periodically audit consumer files. These audits ensure that we are complying with the regulations in place to protect consumers.
