All such third parties are prohibited from using your personal information except to provide these services to 1st National, and they are required to maintain the confidentiality of your information.
1st National may keep track of the websites and pages our users visit within 1st National, in order to determine what 1st National services are the most popular. This data is used to deliver customized content and advertising within 1st National to customers whose behavior indicates that they are interested in a particular subject area.
1st National will disclose your personal information, without notice, only if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to: (a) conform to the edicts of the law or comply with legal process, such as a subpoena served on 1st National or the site; (b) protect and defend the rights or property of 1st National; (c) act under exigent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of 1st National, or the public; (d) investigate fraud and (e) any third party with your permission
If 1st National is involved in a merger, acquisition, or sale of all or a portion of its assets, you will be notified via email and/or a prominent notice on our website of any change in ownership or uses of your personal information, as well as any choices you may have regarding your personal information.
The 1st National website may use “cookies” to help you personalize your online experience. A cookie is a text file that is placed on your hard disk by a web page server. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you, and can only be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you.
One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. The purpose of a cookie is to tell the Web server that you have returned to a specific page. For example, if you personalize 1st National pages, or register with 1st National site or services, a cookie helps 1st National to recall your specific information on subsequent visits. This simplifies the process of recording your personal information, such as billing addresses, shipping addresses, and so on. When you return to the same 1st National website, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use the 1st National features that you customized.
You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most Web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. If you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to fully experience the interactive features of the 1st National services or websites you visit.

With your consent we may post your testimonial along with your name. If you want your testimonial removed please contact us.
We will retain your information for as long as your account is active or as needed to provide you services. We will retain and use your information as necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements.
