Who is collecting the information? 

When you are on a MBHSIAA site and are asked for personal information, you are sharing that information with MBHSIAA. MBHSIAA may also contract with third party companies to perform services for MBHSIAA on its website that require these companies to collect personal information (e.g. hosting a website promotion or survey). The MBHSIAA website may also contain various links to third-party websites. These sites may provide additional information, goods, services and/or promotions. These sites are owned and operated independently of MBHSIAA, and have their own separate privacy and data collection practices. Any information you provide to these Websites will be governed under the terms of their privacy policy, if any. MBHSIAA has no responsibility or liability whatsoever for the independent actions or policies of these independent sites, and is not responsible for the content or privacy practices of such sites.

How does MBHSIAA use the information that it collects? 

MBHSIAA’s primary goal in collecting personal information is to facilitate the performance of transactions and to enable us to contact you if a problem arises with your electronic transactions. Additionally, your personal information may be used to obtain a credit report if necessary, providing such information when performing a transaction as required. This information may also be used to provide you with a customized experience on our site, which includes interactive communications, and other services.

The MBHSIAA site may also contain optional surveys and questionnaires asking for information, as well as several opportunities for visitors to ask questions. We use the information you provide to help us design and build better products, to customize your banking experience, and to provide advice. Taking part in any of these segments is always optional.

We also use the information we collect to help target valuable marketing and advertising offers. This kind of advertising may be done with banner ads as well as promotional emails sent by MBHSIAA, or by third parties under contract with MBHSIAA. MBHSIAA may also match user information with third party data to help us better understand our customers. This means MBHSIAA may combine the personal information you provide us with information available from other sources, including offline sources, to market new products or services we think may be of interest to you.

Finally, MBHSIAA does research on our users’ demographics, interests, and behaviour based on the information provided to us when our users perform transactions, during a promotion, from surveys and from our server log files. We do this to better understand and serve our users. This research is compiled and analyzed on an aggregated basis so as to prevent identification of personal information relating to any one individual. MBHSIAA may share this aggregated data with our business partners.

We will limit the collection and use of personally identifiable information to what we require in order to serve you as our customer and to administer our business, and we will retain this information only for the time required to meet these objectives.

With whom does MBHSIAA share your personal information? 

MBHSIAA may from time to time disclose your personally identifiable information as follows:

  1. Where permitted or required by law;
  2. With your consent;
  3. In response to a court order, search warrant or other similar demand or request;
  4. To meet requests for information from regulators;
  5. To suppliers, agents and other organisations that perform services for you or for us or on your behalf;
  6. When we buy or sell all or part of our business or when considering such a transaction;
  7. To help us collect a debt or enforce an obligation owed to us by you.

Except in these circumstances, MBHSIAA never provides your personal information to third parties without your consent. You consent to MBHSIAA sharing the information that you provide with MBHSIAA subsidiaries and related companies.

MBHSIAA’s website may also utilize third party vendors to provide products and services directly to MBHSIAA customers. Such relationships are designated with a “Provided by Company” legend or logo, or other similarly worded designation. If you desire to purchase a product or service from such third party, your personal information will be collected by the third-party company, and shared with MBHSIAA. You may review the privacy practices of the third party either by clicking the link on the bottom of the page, or by clicking on the “Provided by Company” logo, which will take you to their website. Additionally, when you purchase or download software applications from MBHSIAA or a third-party, your personal information is shared with the software developer/licensor in order to register you as a licensed software user, and to permit them to provide you any required support. Although these software developers are encouraged to develop and follow appropriate privacy policies, MBHSIAA cannot be responsible for the privacy practices of such companies. If you are concerned about the privacy policy of a certain developer or software company, you may contact them directly or visit their individual websites.

MBHSIAA may share website usage information about visitors to our website, who have received a targeted promotional campaign, with a reputable third-party advertising company for the purpose of targeting future campaigns and upgrading visitor information used in reporting statistics. For this purpose, we and our third-party advertising company note some of the pages you visit on our website through the use of pixel tags (also called clear gifs). The information collected by our third-party advertising company through the use of these pixel tags is not personally identifiable.

MBHSIAA may also disclose personal information in special cases when we have reason to believe that disclosing this information is necessary to identify, contact or bring legal action against someone who may be violating this site’s Terms of Use or may be violating MBHSIAA’s or other’s rights or causing injury to or interference with MBHSIAA’s or other’s property. MBHSIAA may also disclose or access personal information when we believe in good faith that the law requires it.

MBHSIAA may also disclose aggregated user statistics in order to describe our website to prospective business partners, advertisers, and other third parties, and for other lawful purposes.

What kind of security measures are in place to prevent the loss, misuse or alteration of information supplied? 

When you use our internet Banking Service or provide personal information, your transactions are encrypted for security. Encryption scrambles the information in your transaction, including your Personal Identification Number, User I. D.  or Password  so this information can only be viewed by MBHSIAA.

MBHSIAA uses Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) encryption technology, the highest level of security on the Internet. The SSL protocol provides server authentication, data integrity, and privacy on the Web. This security measure helps ensure that no impostors, eavesdroppers, or vandals get your personal information. SSL not only encrypts your personal and financial information transmitted, including credit card information, but also verifies the identity of the server and that the original message arrives safely at its destination.

However, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your personal information, MBHSIAA cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us or from our website, and therefore you use our site at your own risk. Once we receive your transmission, we use our best effort to ensure its security on our systems.

When you give MBHSIAA personal information, that information may be sent electronically to servers outside of the country where you originally entered the information. In addition, that information may be used, stored and processed outside of the country where you entered that information. Whenever MBHSIAA handles personal information, regardless of where this occurs, it takes steps to ensure that your information is treated securely and in accordance with the relevant Terms of Use and this Privacy Policy.

How can you correct any inaccuracies in the information? 

MBHSIAA endeavours to make reasonable efforts to ensure that the information that we collect about you is current and accurate. However, you have a duty to ensure that you inform us of any changes which invalidate the information we may have collected about you in the past.

If you need to review, correct or change any personal information you have provided, or would like to remove your name from our mailing list, please e-mail us at  If you have established a “user profile” on a MBHSIAA website, you may change the information you provided at anytime by visiting that portion of the website and resubmitting your information.
