Privacy Notice

What do we do with your personal information?


Financial companies choose how they share your personal information. Federal law gives consumers the right to limit some but not all sharing. Federal law also requires us to tell you how we collect, share and protect your personal information. Please read this notice carefully to understand what we do.

How do we protect my personal information?

To protect your information from unauthorized access and use, we use security measures that comply with federal law. Those measures include computer safeguards and secured files and buildings.


How do we collect my personal information?

We collect your personal information, for example, when you:

  • Open an account
  • Make a wire transfer

We also may collect your personal information from others, such as affiliates or other companies.


Why can't I limit all sharing?

Federal law gives you the right to limit only:

  • Sharing for affiliates' everyday business purposes—information about your creditworthiness
  • Sharing for affiliates to market to you
  • Sharing for non-affiliates to market to you

State laws and individual companies may give you additional rights to limit sharing. See below for more on your rights under state law.


What happens when I limit sharing for an account I hold jointly with someone else?

Your choices will apply to everyone on your account.


AFFILIATES—Companies related by common ownership or control. They can be financial or nonfinancial companies. Our affiliates include CIBC Bank USA and other companies with “CIBC” in their name.


NONAFFILIATES—Companies not related by common ownership or control. They can be financial and nonfinancial companies.

  • We do not share with non-affiliates so they can market to you.

JOINT MARKETING—A formal agreement between nonaffiliated financial companies that together market financial products or services to you.

  • We don't jointly market.


For California, Connecticut, and Vermont residents: We will limit sharing among our affiliates to the extent required by your state’s laws, unless you authorize us to make those disclosures.
