The Bank of Elk River understands the special duty that financial institutions have to safeguard our customer's sensitive information. This information may be required to be obtained by law or sought by the institution for proper business purposes, and such personal information is also vital to our ability to provide our customers with quality service.

Once you have provided personal identifying information, it will only be used for purposes of managing the website or for such other purposes as described at the point of data collection.

Our institution recognizes the reasonable expectation of privacy for all of our customers and the importance of protecting that privacy. The American Bankers Association, Consumer Bankers Association, and The Bankers Roundtable have developed joint industry privacy principles which are itemized below. The Bank of Elk River subscribes to these principles as one method to protect customer privacy.

The Bank of Elk River recognizes and respects the privacy expectations of our customers.

2. Use, Collection and Retention of Customer Information
It is the policy and practice of the bank to collect, retain and use information about consumers and customers only where the bank believes the gathering of such information would be useful and allowed by law to administer the bank's business and/or provide products, services, or opportunities to its customers.

3. Maintenance of Accurate Information

Federal law allows us to disclose the information we collect, as described above, to companies that perform marketing services on our behalf or to other financial institutions with which we have joint marketing agreements.
