Security Procedures to Protect Information

We safeguard information according to established security standards and procedures to help prevent unauthorized access to confidential information about you. Our technology is periodically updated and tested to continue to provide you with the highest level of protection of your privacy and to assure the integrity of your information.

Online banking transactions transmitted between you and our online banking vendor also use a 128-bit secure server by VeriSign encrypted with Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) protocol and a router loaded with a firewall to regulate the inflow and outflow of server traffic. Using this high level of technology, your online banking transactions are secure.

Maintenance of Accurate Information

We have implemented procedures to help assure that our customer’s financial information is accurate, current and complete in accordance with commercially reasonable standards. While some procedures are required by federal or state law, we also have procedures for responding to requests to correct inaccurate information in a timely manner and update information promptly. Customers should notify us immediately by calling 913-239-8100 if they receive what they believe to be inaccurate information regarding their Cornerstone Bank account.
