What does Cole Taylor 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.


The types of personal information we collect and share depend on the product or service you have with us. This information can include:
• Social Security number and income
• Account balances and payment history
• Credit history and credit scores

What we do

How does Cole Taylor Bank protect my personal information

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

How does Cole Taylor Bank collect my personal information?

We collect your personal information, for example, when you:
• Open an account or deposit money
• Pay your bills or apply for a loan

• Affiliates from using your information 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.

Your choices will apply to everyone on your account.
