Who we are
Who is providing this notice? First Citizens BancShares, Inc. and affiliates, including our financial service providers, banking, insurance, and securities affiliates.
What we do
How does the First Citizens BancShares, Inc. group of companies 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. Only people who have a legitimate business reason to do so in connection with their job responsibilities are authorized to access customer information.
How does the First Citizens BancShares, Inc. group of companies collect my personal information? We collect your personal information, for example, when you
  • Apply for a loan
  • Use your credit or debit card
  • Make deposits or withdrawals from your account
  • Provide account information
  • Give us your income information
We also collect your personal information from others, such as credit bureaus, 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
  • 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. 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 — unless you tell us otherwise.
