Recognition of a Customerís Expectation of Privacy
At Justin State Bank, we believe the confidentiality and protection of customer information is one of our fundamental responsibilities.

Thus, safekeeping of customer information is a priority for Justin State Bank.
Use, Collection, and Retention of Customer Information
Information about consumers is accumulated from a variety of sources. Some information is provided to Justin State Bank directly by customers themselves. Other data is developed by Justin State Bank as a function of providing a product or service to a customer. Still other information is obtained from outside sources. We will limit the use and collection of information about our customers to that which is necessary to administer our business, provide superior service and offer opportunities that we think will be of interest to customers. This means that we will use information to help us identify and mitigate potential risks or loss to Justin State Bank. We will use information to help identify additional products or services which we believe customers might want to know about. We will use this information only in accordance with the principles set out in this Policy.

Limitations on Employee Access to Information
At Justin State Bank, employee access to personally identifiable customer information is limited to those with a business reason to know such information.
