Community Bank recognizes the importance of the privacy, security, and accessibility for our customers and other users of our website. We are committed to protecting your privacy and providing the needed security and means of accessibility as it is described in this notice.
“Community Bank” includes Community Bancshares of Mississippi, Inc. and its subsidiaries.
If you are enrolled in Community Bank Online Banking:
- Your use of the Online Banking Services is governed by certain agreements related to such Services and related addendums (collectively, the “Online Banking Agreements”), and
Community Bank reserves the right to modify or terminate the Services and the website or to terminate or suspend your access to the Services and website, in whole or in part, at any time.
The collection, storage, and sharing of customer information is an important part of delivering useful banking products and services to consumers. To serve you, as a consumer, efficiently and conveniently, we have to make use of modern technology and customer information. But we know that you are concerned about privacy and our use of the information you give us. We are committed to an ongoing review of our procedures and policies in the interest of protecting your privacy.
We understand that you expect us to maintain proper safeguards to protect confidential information you provide to us. The privacy of your information is protected not only by state and federal laws but by our commitment to the protection of your financial information. We have established policies and procedures to help prevent misuse of that information. This statement has been prepared to explain to you what types of information we collect, how we use that information and the circumstances under which we may share all or part of the information. Under no circumstances do we provide deposit or loan account personal information to third parties for the purpose of independent telemarketing or direct mail marketing of any non-financial products or services of those companies. We disclose information permitted or required by a variety of federal and state laws, as required to consummate your transaction, and as directed by you. Our strict policies to protect your information apply equally to current (active) accounts as well as inactive (closed) accounts, both loans and deposits.
Online Security and Protection
All personal and account information that passes between your computer and Community Bank Internet Banking is encrypted. This means that while your information is in transit it is scrambled so that only Community Bank computer equipment can reassemble it to its original text format. When Community Bank sends personal account information to you, it is also encrypted so that only your computer can decipher it and reconstruct the data transmitted.
There are also internal procedures in place within the Community Bank’s Online Banking system that include a system of filtering routers and firewalls. Filtering routers verify the source and destination of each transaction while firewalls shield the bank’s customer service network from outside sources. These two systems then protect the bank’s internal accounts from illegal outside access while keeping the structure of the bank’s internal networks invisible to outside observers.
Community Bank is continuously evaluating its security systems to ensure that the bank provides the latest and most secure levels of privacy and security that are appropriate for our bank customers.

One important way that we are doing this is through our ADA Compliant websites. Our website is designed to communicate effectively with individuals with a wide range of disabilities. Our goal is to provide all customers with equal opportunities to benefit from the goods and services on our websites.
Our ongoing efforts towards meeting both Level One and Level Two requirements, as set forth in the World Wide Web Consortium’s recommendations for web content accessibility guidelines, will be a continued focus. The website, therefore, complies with the Americans with Disabilities Act in that it is navigable and viewable by non-graphical, text-only browsers. It is our goal to continue to improve our websites’ accessibility features with monthly monitoring procedures in place.
We recognize users may have other disability-related needs that we are unable to support online. If you have difficulties using our website or other digital products, have questions, or want to provide feedback, please contact our Accessibility Coordinator at: email@example.com.
