At Washington County Bank, we clearly understand the importance of confidentiality and trust when it comes to handling private financial information. Accordingly, we are providing you this notice explaining our consumer privacy policy and informing you of how we intend to safeguard your personal information as our customer. You do not need to do anything as a result of this notice. We want you to understand what information we collect and how we use it. In order to provide our customers with a broad range of financial products and services as effectively and conveniently as possible, we use technology to manage and maintain customer information. This Privacy Policy Notice is a constant reminder to our customers that protecting the privacy of their personal information is always of utmost concern. The following policy serves as a standard for all Washington County Bank employees for collection, use, retention, and security of nonpublic personal information.

What Information We Collect

We may collect "nonpublic personal information" about you from the following sources:

- Information we receive from you on applications or other forms;
- Information about your transactions with us, our affiliates or others; and
- Information we receive from consumer reporting agencies.

What Information We Disclose

We are permitted by law to share information about our experiences or transactions with you (such as your account balance and your payment history with us) with companies related to us by common control or ownership ("affiliates"). Affiliates would include financial service providers such as banks and insurance agents, as well as other affiliated entities that provide services to us.

We also are permitted by law to disclose nonpublic personal information about you to unrelated third parties in certain circumstances. For example, we may disclose nonpublic personal information about you to such third parties to assist us in servicing your loan or account with us, to government entities in response to subpoenas, to consumer reporting agencies, or as authorized by you. In addition, we may disclose all of the information we collect as described above to companies that perform marketing services on our behalf or to other financial institutions with whom we have joint marketing agreements. These third parties are responsible for treating your personal information as confidential. Because of the limited ways we share information, there is no need for you to take any action, such as giving us an opt-out notice.

If, at any time, you close your account(s) or become an inactive customer, we will continue to adhere to the privacy policies and practices described in this notice.

Our Security Procedures

We also take steps to maintain appropriate security standards and procedures regarding unauthorized access to customer information. We restrict access to your personal and account information to those employees who need to know that information to provide products or services to you. We update and test our systems to improve the protection of customer information and to maintain its integrity. We maintain physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards that are governed by federal standards.
