Privacy Policy At Home Federal Bank, protecting the privacy and confidentiality of your personal information is important to all our employees. We value your business and the trust you put in Home Federal Bank.

Identity theft occurs when someone uses your personal information such as your name, Social Security Number, credit card number or other identifying information, without your permission to commit fraud or other crimes.

Identity Theft Kit Home Federal Bank values the relationships we have built with you and your family and hope that you never become the victim of identity theft. But, because identity theft is such a fast growing crime, we want you to be aware of the basic precautions you can take to protect yourself. We have created the Identity Theft Kit to help you understand identity theft but also to minimize the risk.

Phishing is a high-tech scam that uses spam or pop-up messages to deceive you into disclosing your credit card numbers, bank account information, Social Security Number, passwords or other sensitive information.

DID YOU KNOW?

A great way to keep tabs on your identity and find out if someone is opening accounts or credit cards in your name, is by checking your credit report. A recent amendment to the federal Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) requires each of the nationwide consumer reporting companies to provide you with a free copy of your credit report, at your request, once every 12 months, from www.annualcreditreport.com. The Federal Trade Commission (FTC), the nation's consumer protection agency, has prepared a brochure, Your Access to Free Credit Reports, explaining your rights and how to order a free annual credit report.

TIP: Since you get one free report from each of the 3 bureaus per year, do not request them all at once. Spread them out, so you then get three free "snapshots" of your credit per year - all the better to prevent identity theft!
