Digital Privacy Statement
Androscoggin Bank may collect and store information about your visit to our website. To collect this information, our web server may write a “cookie”. “Cookies” are used for many purposes: to enhance customer convenience (for example, to store passwords and log on IDs so the customer does not have to enter this information every time) and to track customer activity on the website for informational purposes. We collect anonymous aggregated site-visitation statistics to measure the effectiveness of our advertisements and web site. We also utilize cookies for advertising purposes.
The type of information we may collect using cookies includes:
• The traffic on our web site and average time spent on each page.
• The number of first time visitors and return customers to our website.
• The type of Internet browsers, such as Internet Explorer or Firefox that our visitors use.
• The IP Address (A numeric address given to computers connected to the Internet).
Visitors may elect to provide us with personal information via email or form submission. This information is used internally, as appropriate, to handle the sender’s request. It is not disseminated or sold to other organizations. Note, however, that email is not a secure method of transmission.
Interest-Based Online Advertising
This section of our Privacy Statement provides details about interest-based online advertising (also called “targeted advertising”, “re-marketing”, or “behavioral advertising”) and your choices with respect to this type of advertising.
We use third-party audience data such as age, gender and interests to better understand the behavior of our customers and work with companies that collect information about your online activities to provide advertising targeted to suit your interests and preferences. For example, you may see certain ads on this website or other websites because we contract with Google and other similar companies to target our ads based on information we or they have collected, including information that was collected through automated means. These companies also use automated technologies to collect information when you click on our ads, which helps track and manage the effectiveness of our marketing efforts.
You may opt out of the automated collection of information by third-party ad networks for the purpose of delivering advertisements tailored to your interests. Because those opt-out and preference control pages are specific to the individual browser used to visit it, and because that page is not operated by Androscoggin Bank, we are unable to perform the opt-outs on your behalf.
