First Financial Holdings and its affiliates have extensive procedures in place to ensure the protection of customer data. Electronically stored information is housed in a secured area with limited, password protected access. Also, as part of the Company's disaster preparedness plan, electronic data are regularly backed up and housed in a highly secure, off-site facility. Other media (paper, microfilm, etc.) are housed in a secure area with limited access. We always strive to meet or exceed regulations on data security and customer privacy.
Access to customer information is highly restricted. It is limited to authorized employees of First Financial and service providers assisting our business operations. These individuals and firms are thoroughly screened and required to meet First Financial's guidelines for data security. Periodically, we may be required to provide certain information in response to government or law enforcement agencies. Beyond these exceptions, information is not shared with third-parties outside of the First Financial family of affiliates.
