The type of information we collect:
We routinely collect and retain the information from your account applications, transaction history (for deposits, loans, debit cards, etc.) and from consumer reports. This information helps us:
- To establish and administer your accounts: (Example: We ask for personally identifying information to protect your accounts from fraud.)
- To satisfy certain regulatory requirements: (Example: When you open an account that pays interest, we are required by the Internal Revenue Service to obtain your social security number.)
- Better understand you so that we may provide you with additional or improved products and services: (Example: We require information concerning your credit history and your assets to determine if you qualify for loan approval.)
We do not share our current or previous customers' nonpublic personal information with affiliates or with nonaffiliated third parties except as permitted or required by law.
How is that information protected?
Access to your personally identifiable financial information is limited to employees with a specific business reason for utilizing this data.

Important Information about Procedures for Opening an Account.
To help the government fight the funding of terrorism and money laundering activities, Federal law requires all financial institutions to obtain, verify, and record information that identifies each person who opens an account.
What this means to you: When you open an account with Sewickley Savings Bank, we will ask for your name, address, date of birth and other information that will allow us to identify you. We will also ask to see your driver's license or other identifying documents.
While we will know many of you that come in to open an account, we will require these documents to open your account. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause; however, Federal law prohibits us from waiving these requirements.
