We employ software programs to monitor and log all network traffic on our servers. We do this for site management and to identify attempts to upload, change or otherwise access our servers without authorization.
BIT also uses information collected on this site to help compile broad statistical trends that help us improve navigation and content. We use this non-personal information for internal statistical purposes and product evaluation only; it is not shared with unaffiliated third parties.

When you send us personally identifying information in an email or by filling out a form on our website, we use this information to fulfill or respond to your request. We may store these requests for future responses to you.
We do not sell or distribute personal information, including e-mail addresses collected via our eStatement application, to any third party. We will never utilize data obtained from individual account holders without the permission of both our client and the individual consumer. BIT will not reveal specific information about consumer accounts or other personally identifiable data to unaffiliated third parties for their independent use except when disclosure is required by law (e.g. subpoena, investigation of fraud, etc).
The management of BIT limits employee access to information to those with a business reason for knowing such information. We educate our employees on the importance of maintaining account holder confidentiality and we enforce our privacy policies with appropriate disciplinary procedures.
Security Procedures to Protect Information
With the support of VeriSign, BIT operates secure data networks protected by industry standard firewalls, encryption, and password protection. When institutions connect with our secure server, we employ Secure Socket Layer (SSL) protection, which encrypts or scrambles your data so that no one else can read it. The use of SSL does require version 4.0 or higher of Netscape or Microsoft Explorer browsers or the latest version of AOL.
