Online Privacy

When you use Internet banking to apply for one of our products or services, or sign up for an online service, such as bill payment, we will request information, such as your e-mail address or your account number. This information allows you to perform certain tasks (e.g., correspond with us or review your accounts) and it allows us to provide the information you requested. In these cases, we collect only the information necessary to interact with you. We also gather data to track Web site usage, such as number of hits, pages visited, and the length of user sessions, in order to evaluate the usefulness of our sites. This information is not specific to your personally identifiable financial information. A notice will be placed on our home page in the event of any changes to our online privacy policy.

The accuracy of the information Security First Bank maintains is very important. If you believe we have information about you that is incorrect, outdated, or incomplete, or if the information you think is wrong appears on a statement or notice from us, you should call us at (559) 225-1700. We will look into the matter and correct our records as appropriate.


A cookie is an element of data that a Web site can send to your browser, which may then be stored on your system. A cookie does not retrieve any data from your hard drive, carry computer viruses, or capture your e-mail address. Cookies help Web sites to keep track of user preferences and to recognize return visitors. So, when you return to a Web site you've visited before, your browser gives this data back to the server.

We use cookies to make your online experience with us a more focused one based on the products and services you have with us. We also use cookies for various purposes, such as maintaining continuity during an online session, gathering data about the use of our site, or monitoring our online promotions. This information helps us inform you about additional products, services, or promotions that may be of interest to you.

You can set your browser to reject cookies. However, if you choose to reject cookies, you may not be able to bank online with us. If your browser rejects cookies, you may not be able to sign on to your favorite sites or use the features you like most within those sites.
