Valley's Privacy Policy 

 

Valley National Bank (“Valley,” “we,” “us,” and “our”) respects your privacy. This policy (the “Privacy Policy”) describes how we gather information from you when you visit this Valley National Bank online interface (i.e. desktop website, mobile website, or mobile application) and any of Valley’s affiliate or subsidiary online interfaces that link to this Privacy Policy (each individually, a “Site,” and, collectively, “Sites”).  This policy also describes how we may use and share that information. Please read the Privacy Policy carefully to understand our practices in connection with your information. If you do not agree with our practices, you may choose not to use our Sites. By visiting our Sites, you are accepting the practices described in this Privacy Policy. This Privacy Policy may occasionally change; your continued use of any Site(s) after we make changes will be deemed to be your acceptance of, and agreement to, those changes, so please be sure to check this Privacy Policy periodically for updates.

       

Valley’s Consumer Privacy Notice, will also apply to our practices in connection with information that we collect on this Site.
This Privacy Policy may not apply to other sites and/or applications that Valley may provide; you should refer to their respective terms, conditions, and policies in order to understand their online privacy practices.


   
   
  • Information we may collect and how we collect it

    In certain circumstances, your use of various parts of our Sites may necessitate that you provide us certain personal data. Personal Data is information that identifies you or can be used to identify or contact you (“Personal Data”). Examples of Personal Data may include, but are not limited to, your name, address, email address, and telephone number. We may request Personal Data from you when you register on our Sites and/or in connection with other online products we may make available on our Sites from time to time. In such cases, we will collect Personal Data from you only if you voluntarily submit such information to us. We will not sell or share your Personal Data unless you give us permission to do so or as otherwise contemplated in this Privacy Policy.

       

    You are not obligated to provide us with Personal Data in order to visit our Sites. However, if you choose not to share certain requested information, you may not be able to access or use certain parts of our Sites or use one or more of our online products.

       

    We use “cookies” to collect certain non-personal information to enhance your experience when you visit our Sites.  Cookies are small pieces of data that a website stores on a user’s device so that their device will “remember” certain information in connection with their visit.  Cookies also help provide the Sites additional functionality and help us more accurately analyze Site usage.  As you interact with our Sites, we may use cookies or other similar tools to automatically collect certain information like details about your use of the Sites, traffic data, location data, and information about your computer and internet connection, such as your IP address.

       

    Some pages of our Sites may also contain small snippets of code called “pixels” (also known as web beacons or clear gifs) that allow us to collect certain data for analytics purposes, such as recording user counts, level of engagement, and other such metrics.

        

    Additionally, certain types of information are collected by most web browsers and/or through your device, including, but not limited to, the type of your device, internet browser, and operating system. We may use these types of information for purposes of, for example, detecting and preventing fraud and enhancing functionality and security.
    This Privacy Policy does not apply to information that is collected by: (a) us offline or via other means not specifically described in this Privacy Policy, or (b) any third party.

       
  • How we may use your information

    Valley uses the Personal Data you provide in a manner consistent with this Privacy Policy.  If you provide Personal Data for a particular reason, we may use the Personal Data in connection with such reason. For instance, we will use the Personal Data you provide to register on a Site(s) in order to provide access to certain parts of such Site(s).  Valley also uses your Personal Data and other information collected from the Sites to help us improve the Sites and our products and services, including, without limitation, to respond to your inquiries and requests, or to allow you to take advantage of certain of our Sites’ functionalities and or features within our Sites by granting us access to information from your device such as geolocation when you make applicable requests (ex. when you are searching for an ATM nearby using your mobile device). 

       

    Valley may store personally non-identifiable information itself or it may be included in databases owned and/or maintained by Valley’s service providers.  Sites may use such information in connection with other information to track, for example, the number of visitors to our Sites and to certain pages of our Sites, and the domain names of our visitors' Internet service providers. 

         
  • Online advertising

    We may work with certain third party service providers to display ads for us on other locations on the Internet.  As part of these services, such service providers may use certain of your information to serve you customized advertisements for Valley that are geared towards your interests or preferences, which is commonly known as “Online Behavioral Advertising,” or “Interest-Based Advertising.”  We may also work with such service providers to analyze the performance of these efforts.  We limit the collection and use of such information for the particular purposes set forth here.  Please visit the Network Advertising Initiative’s page at http://www.networkadvertising.org/choices/ for more information on, and in certain instances how to opt out of, this type of third party service provider advertising. 
        

  • How we may share your information

    Valley is not in the business of selling your information.  There are, however, certain circumstances in which we may share your Personal Data with certain third parties without notice to you including those set forth below:
     

    To our Affiliates and Subsidiaries: Like many companies, Valley may share your information, including your Personal Data, with its related entities for internal business purposes.
     

    If Required by Law or an Emergency Situation: Valley may disclose your Personal Data if required to do so by law or if we believe that such action is necessary in certain urgent circumstances.
     

    Consultants and Other Such Third Parties: Like many companies, Valley sometimes hires other companies to perform certain services in connection with Valley’s business.  Examples include mailing information, maintaining databases and processing payments.  When we employ another company to perform a function of this nature, we only provide them with the information that they need to perform their specific function.
     

    Advertisers.  In addition to any other advertising practices described in this Privacy Policy, Valley may aggregate your Personal Data with Personal Data of others and disclose such information to advertisers and other third parties for marketing and promotional purposes.  In these situations, Valley will not disclose to these entities any personally identifiable information.
     

    Business Reasons: Like many companies, Valley might divest or purchase businesses and/or assets.  In the event of such a corporate event, Personal Data might be transferred.
       

  • No collection from children under the age of 13

    Valley does not knowingly collect personal data from children below the age of 13 through the Sites.  If you are under 13 years old, please do not give us any Personal Data.  We encourage parents and legal guardians to monitor their children's Internet usage and to help enforce this Privacy Policy by instructing their children to not provide Personal Data on the Sites without their permission.  If you have reason to believe that a child below the age of 13 has provided Personal Data to Valley on any Site(s), please contact us promptly, and we will endeavor to remove that information.
      

  • Links to other websites

    This Privacy Policy applies only to relevant Sites and not to any third party sites or any other Valley sites as may be described herein.  If you have questions or concerns regarding those other sites, we suggest that you contact those sites directly for information on their policies.
       

  • Data security

    We have put reasonable security measures in place that are intended to protect against the loss or misuse of Personal Data that we have collected through the Sites.  However, like most businesses, we are unable to provide a guarantee that the security measures we take cannot be circumvented or breached.
       

  • Changes to this privacy policy

    This Privacy Policy is effective as of the date stated at the top of this policy.  We may change this Privacy Policy from time to time, and will post any such changes on our Sites.  Please be aware that, to the extent permitted by applicable law, our use of information is governed by the Privacy Policy in effect at the time we use the information.  Please refer back to this Privacy Policy periodically to ensure you are cognizant of the most updated and recent version.
