This Privacy Policy also serves as our Privacy notice. This Privacy Policy contains important information about your choices in relation to certain information sharing and marketing offers within Republic Bank.

Recognition of a Customer's Expectation of Privacy

You regard your personal information as yours, and so do we. Because we do not sell or share your information with third parties not associated with services or activities of Republic Bank (except as allowed by law), there is no need for you to tell us not to share your personal information with non-affiliated third parties.

  • Information we receive from you on applications or other forms
  • Information about your transactions with us, our affiliates or others and
  • Information we receive from a consumer reporting agency

Security Standards

We maintain physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards to protect the integrity and confidentiality of your information. Republic Bank also limits access to your nonpublic personal information to those employees who need to know that information in order to provide products and services to you. All our employees are trained to understand and comply with these information principles.

Maintenance of Accurate Information

Republic Bank has implemented internal controls and procedures designed to maintain accurate records concerning your personal information. Should you ever believe that our records contain inaccurate, incomplete, or non-current information about you, please notify us. We will respond to requests to correct the information in a timely manner.

Looking Out for Children
