About Internet Cookies
Cookies are small text files exchanged between a web server and a browser each time a browser accesses that server. Cookies are used for authenticating, tracking, and maintaining specific information about users. Most online banking sites, including ours, require browsers to accept cookies. We use this piece of information as a security measure—to authenticate the computer used to access our online banking platform
About Our Security
Union Bank, or any other financial institution, will never request sensitive financial or personal information via email or telephone.
Union Bank protects your information whether it's online or via traditional banking methods. In order to protect your personal information and privacy, we use industry proven security methods and technology on our website and with our NetTeller™, PowerPay™ and Express Telebanking™ services.
Email & Security—
Email sent over the Internet is generally not secure. Because email is not secure, we will never send or request any confidential account information via email, and you should never send us your account information via email.
When you are on a secure page, communication between your computer's browser and our web server is protected by Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology. SSL provides data encryption, server authentication, and message integrity for an Internet connection. Only our servers have the code that can read the secure messages transmitted on our site. The Secure Socket Layer (SSL) protocol uses an advanced combination of public-key and symmetric-key encryption. Symmetric-key encryption is much faster than public-key encryption; however, public-key encryption provides better authentication techniques. An SSL session always begins with an exchange of messages called the SSL handshake. The handshake allows the server to authenticate itself to the client by using public-key techniques, and then allows the client and the server to cooperate in the creation of symmetric keys used for rapid encryption, decryption, and tamper detection during the session that follows.
There are two ways you can verify that your browser has accessed a secure web page:
- A "closed padlock" icon is displayed, typically located in the lower right hand corner of your browser window, indicating that the page you are viewing is secure.
- The web address in your URL window will begin with "https://". The "s" indicates that the page is secure and that the page lives on a secure server.
Union Bank's NetTeller online banking security is addressed at three levels:
- Information sent to and from the customer's PC and the online banking server
- The secure storage of customer records
- The prevention of unauthorized users from compromising the NetTeller site
Communication between the customer's browser and the online banking server uses the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology described above. To ensure that our customers get the most out of SSL technology, NetTeller requires the use of a web browser that supports 128–bit encryption. If your web browser does not support 128–bit encryption technology, you will need to upgrade to the latest version of your preferred browser.
Union Bank's customer information database is housed on a secure server and protected by sophisticated, multiple-spoofing, multiple firewall technology. Just as authenticated requests are the only electronic messages capable of communicating with the NetTeller server, the NetTeller server is the only device capable of sending recognized requests to Union Bank's customer database.
An online security analyzer constantly monitors system login attempts and recognizes failures that could be indicating any unauthorized attempts to log into an account. If such attempts occur, immediate steps are employed to prevent the account from being accessed.
