Providing exceptional customer service includes keeping our consumer customers information secure and using it only as our customers would want us to.

Keeping your financial information secure is one of our most important responsibilities. We value your trust and handle your information with care. We restrict access to nonpublic personal information about you to those employees who need to know that information to provide products or services to you. We maintain physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards that comply with federal standards to guard your nonpublic personal information. Each Idaho Banking Company employee is required to follow our company’s “Code of Conduct”, which states that all customer information is considered private and privileged and is to be used solely for the purpose of providing you with the finest service available.


Our privacy policy is available in our branches and on our web site. It is also given to each consumer customer who opens an account with us and to all consumer customers at least once annually.


When you apply online for accounts or services, or enroll in Online Banking via our web page at, you provide personal information that is necessary for us to process your application. To ensure that your application remains confidential, the information is sent to us in a "secure session" established with Secure Socket Layer (SSL). This technology encrypts or scrambles your account information so it’s virtually impossible for anyone other than Idaho Banking Company to read it.

When you bank online with us, we, along with the outside companies we work with to bring these services to you, have access to your information. Information is retained on our system or the system of the appropriate outside company, depending on what is required in order to serve you. We use state-of-the-art internet technology, supported by the outside companies we work with, to make your online banking secure and to protect your personal information. We require a user ID and personal passcode to access your accounts. If you do not provide this information, we cannot establish an online banking service for you. You can help protect the security of your banking information by not sharing your ID or passcode with anyone, by changing your passcode regularly, and remembering to sign off when finished. 


When sending us e-mail please be careful about the information you send because e-mail to us and any other public web site can sometimes be intercepted.

Since our response back to you is not secure, we will not include confidential account information in the response unless you have given us permission to do so. You can always contact us by phone, U.S. mail or by visiting your nearest branch.

Deter Identity Thieves By Safeguarding Your Information

  • Carefully monitor the balances and statements of all your financial records.
  • Shred financial documents and paperwork with personal information before you discard them.
  • Protect your Social Security number. Don’t carry your card with you or write the number on a check. Give it out only if absolutely necessary to trusted sources.
  • Don’t give out personal information on the phone, through the mail, or over the Internet unless you know who you are dealing with.
  • Never click on links sent in unsolicited emails; instead, type in a web address you know.
  • Don’t use an obvious password like your birth date, your mother’s maiden name, or the last four digits of your Social Security number.
  • Keep your personal information in a secure place at home, especially if you have roommates, employ outside help, or are having work done in your house.
  • Review your credit report regularly. By law, you are entitled to annually receive a free copy of your credit report from each credit bureau. To order your free annual reports, call 1-877-322-8228 or visit
