At the First National Bank of Ottawa, your privacy is very important to us. As a customer, you by necessity, provide us with certain personal information about yourself.  The personal data you give us is used to administer your accounts in a professional and efficient manner, to provide you with excellent service, and to develop and offer financial services designed to meet your needs.  We do not sell your personal information to anyone, for any purpose.

What do we mean when we say ‘personal information’? In the process of providing financial products and services to you, your family or household, we collect certain personal information about you, including:

  • Information that you provide us on applications and other forms, such as your name, address, date of birth, telephone and Social Security Numbers, assets, debts, account balances and income.

  • Information from credit reporting agencies regarding your credit history or creditworthiness.

  • Information about you that we acquire from other third parties to assist us in evaluating your application for The First National Bank of Ottawa products and services; for example, employment status that we obtain to determine your eligibility for a loan.

  • Information about your transactions with The First National Bank of Ottawa; for example, your account balances, payment history and transaction details.

While information is the cornerstone of our ability to provide superior service, our most important asset is our customers’ trust.  Keeping customer information secure and using it only as our customer would want us to is a top priority.  We do not share your personal information with third parties not affiliated with The First National Bank of Ottawa except under the following circumstances:

  • We disclose personal information as necessary to facilitate transactions; for example, to collect a check, or to investigate possible errors in transactions.

  • We share personal information with companies that perform services for us; for example, check printing, data processing, electronic fund transfer services and mailing of your account statements.

  • To keep you informed about products and services, we may also, as legally permitted, disclose certain personal information (such as name and address) to companies that assist us in marketing, including other financial service providers with whom we have joint marketing agreements, such as insurance companies and securities broker-dealers."

  • We also disclose personal information as required or permitted by law; for example, in response to a subpoena or garnishment or to a credit bureau.

Transaction and experience information, such as your account balance, payment history and transaction details may be shared among us and our affiliates as allowed by the Fair Credit Reporting Act. 

We do not share information about former customers, except as may be permitted or required by law. 

All of your personal customer information is deemed to be confidential in nature.  We maintain procedural, electronic and physical safeguards to protect your privacy that comply with federal standards.  Our employees may access your information only when there is an appropriate reason to do so, such as to administer or offer our products and service.  Employees who violate these standards will be subject to disciplinary measures.
