How We Protect Your Personal Information
SKNANB maintains safeguards for the purpose of securing your personal data including data encryption and firewalls to maintain the security of the information we receive via our website.
The security of your data is important to us, but remember that no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage is 100% secure. While we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your Personal Data, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.
Guarding Your Personal Information/Steps that you can take
While security and privacy risks cannot be eliminated, they can be minimized. SKNANB recommends that you take the following precautions:
Proper Use of Passwords
- Do not under any circumstances share your passwords with anyone, including family members.
- Never give your password to a third party such as a payment service provider as this places your financial information at risk.
- Don’t use passwords that are obvious like your name, names of family members, your address, date or birth or any other information that might be found in your purse or wallet.
- Try to avoid passwords that are real words. Choose passwords that are difficult for others to guess. Such passwords may contain a combination of letters, numbers or symbols.
- Avoid using the same password for several accounts or services. Try to use unique passwords for different web sites and purposes.
- Change your passwords frequently.
- If you suspect that someone knows your password, change it immediately. In the meantime, ensure that your information has not been compromised.
Using a Firewall
Your computer may become vulnerable to hackers if it is not properly protected while connected to the Internet. All cable modems, digital subscriber lines (DSL) and dial-up users may be susceptible to Internet hackers.
A personal firewall will help protect your computer while it is connected to the Internet. A firewall creates a barrier between your computer and the rest of the Internet. A firewall can be a hardware device, a software application or a combination of the two. Firewalls can help prevent hacker attacks and block certain types of data from entering your computer or private network. They can also be set up to alert you if anyone tries to access your system.
Be sure to download and install security updates regularly. Alternatively, you may configure your operating system to check for new updates automatically.
Be Wary of Internet Fraud
The most common of these are email fraud, identity theft, phishing and pharming.
Exercise caution with e-mails that ask for personal information. Never provide your personal passwords, personal identification numbers (PIN), account numbers or log in information for Online Internet Banking. Please note that SKNANB will never send you an e-mail asking you to provide these personal details.
Most importantly, if you think that you are a target of e-mail fraud, do not reply to the e-mail — delete it immediately without opening it.
Transfer of Data
Your information, including Personal Data, may be transferred to — and maintained on — computers located outside of your state, province, country or other governmental jurisdiction where the data protection laws may differ than those from your jurisdiction.
If you are located outside Saint Kitts and Nevis and choose to provide information to us, please note that we transfer the data, including Personal Data, to Saint Kitts and Nevis and process it there.
We have implemented measures designed to safeguard the personal information in our custody and control against theft, loss and unauthorized access, use, and disclosure.
We restrict access to personal information to employees and authorized service providers who require access to fulfil their job requirements.
We may keep and use information about you in our records for as long as it is needed for the purposes described above, or to otherwise meet our legal obligations, even if you are no longer a customer.
