Central Bank is Dedicated to Protecting Your Privacy

COPPA
In conforming with COPPA laws, Central Bank will not knowingly collect or use personal information from children under 13. We are not responsible for the data collection and use practices of nonaffiliated third parties to which our websites may link.

Patriot Act
To help the government fight the funding of terrorism and money laundering activities, U.S. Federal law requires financial institutions to obtain, verify and record information that identifies each person (individuals and businesses) who opens an account. What this means for you: When you open an account, we will ask for your name, address, date of birth and other information that will allow us to identify you. We may also ask for your driver’s license or other identifying documents.
