Do-Not-Call, Junk Fax, and E-Mail Solicitations Policy

The board of directors of Jonestown Bank & Trust Co. (“Bank”) declares that it is the policy of the Bank to comply with both the letter and the spirit of federal and state law and regulation which govern the Bank’s activities with respect to telephone, facsimile, or e-mail solicitations for business and promotion of Bank products and services. The Bank will honor requests from any recipients of advertisements made through any of these methods to opt-out of future solicitations.   

1. Telephone Calls – The Bank will honor the national Do-Not-Call registry when contacting individuals that do not have an established relationship with the Bank. The Bank may contact existing Bank customers, including customers that have had a business relationship with the Bank in the last 18 months. However, the Bank will honor any customer’s request not to receive calls from us. These requests will be documented on the customer’s CIF record in the core computer software system and retained for a minimum of five (5) years.
2. Unsolicited Fax Messages – Generally, the Bank does not use facsimile messages as a method of marketing bank products or services with two exceptions, which are notifying: (a) area realtors of current mortgage rates and (b) area dealerships of current dealer loan rates. Prior to adding any realtor to our list the Mortgage Department will obtain a signed authorization from the realtor. The Dealer Department will limit recipients of facsimile messages to those dealerships that serve as an agent of the Bank. Any other use of facsimile machines to send unsolicited advertisements will be carried out in compliance with the Junk Fax Prevention Act.
3. Commercial E-mail Messages – The Bank may use e-mail as a method of marketing bank products or services. However, e-mail messages are more commonly used for specific customer requests for account information and notifications, such as service disruptions on internet banking, which are not covered by these regulations. Any use of e-mail messages to send unsolicited advertisements will be carried out in compliance with the Controlling the Assault of Non-Solicited Pornography and Marketing (CAN-SPAM) Act.

Senior management will ensure that all employees engaged in marketing are trained on this policy and applicable procedures and will require employees to follow them at all times.
