Data Sharing

We will only disclose your personal data to third parties where required by law or to our employees, contractors, designated agents, or third-party service providers who require such information to assist us with providing banking products and services to you, including third-party service providers who provide services to us or on our behalf. Third-party service providers may include, but are not limited to, data storage or hosting providers. These third-party service providers may be located outside of California.

We require all our third-party service providers, by written contract, to implement appropriate security measures to protect your personal data consistent with our policies and any data security obligations applicable to us as your banking products and services provider. We do not permit our third-party service providers to process your personal data for their own purposes.

  • As part of our regular reporting activities to our affiliates, including PCB Bancorp.

  • To protect the rights and property of PCB Bank and its affiliates, including PCB Bancorp.
  • During emergency situations or where necessary to protect the safety of persons.
  • Where the personal data is publicly available.
  • If a business transfer or change in ownership occurs and the disclosure is necessary to complete the transaction. In these circumstances, we will limit data sharing to what is necessary, and we will anonymize the data where technically and reasonably feasible.
  • For additional purposes with your consent where such consent is required by law.

Data Security 

We have implemented appropriate physical, technical, and organizational security measures designed to secure your personal data against accidental loss and unauthorized access, use, alteration, or disclosure. In addition, we limit access to personal data to those employees, agents, contractors, and other third parties that have a legitimate business need for such access.

Data Retention 

Except as otherwise permitted or required by applicable law or regulation, we will only retain your personal data for as long as necessary to fulfill the purposes we collected it for, as required to satisfy any banking laws and regulations governed by various regulatory agencies, legal, accounting, or reporting obligations, or as necessary to resolve disputes. To determine the appropriate retention period for personal data, we consider our statutory obligations, the amount, nature, and sensitivity of the personal data, the potential risk of harm from unauthorized use or disclosure of your personal data, the purposes we process your personal data for, and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means. We specify the retention periods for your personal data in our data retention policy. 

 Under some circumstances we may anonymize your personal data so that it can no longer be associated with you. We reserve the right to use such anonymous and de-identified data for any legitimate business purpose without further notice to you or your consent. We will retain and securely destroy your personal data in accordance with our document retention policy and applicable laws and regulations based upon the nature of the products and services you obtained from us.

Rights to Know, Right to Correct and Right to Delete

It is important that the personal data we hold about you is accurate and current. Please keep us informed if your personal data changes. By law, you may have the right to request access to, correct, and delete the personal data that we hold about you, subject to all retention laws under the applicable banking laws and regulations governed by various banking regulatory agencies.  

 We may request specific information from you to confirm your identity in order to process your right to access, correct and delete your personal data.  Applicable law may allow or require us to refuse to provide you with access to some or all of the personal data that we hold about you, or we may have destroyed, deleted, or made your personal data anonymous in accordance with our record retention obligations and practices. If we cannot comply with your request, we will inform you of the reasons why, subject to any legal or regulatory restrictions.

Exercising Access, Data Portability, Correction and Deletion Rights 

To exercise the access, data portability, correction and deletion rights described above, please submit a verifiable consumer request to us by either: 

Only you, or someone legally authorized to act on your behalf, may make a verifiable consumer request related to your personal information. You may also make a verifiable consumer request on behalf of your minor child. To designate an authorized agent, please complete the Right to Know and Right to Delete Request form, or Right to Correct Form include the contact information in the space provided, and sign and date the form.  We cannot respond to your request if we cannot verify your identity or if we do not receive proper document supporting/evidencing authorization to make request on your behalf. 

 We will only use personal information provided in a verifiable consumer request to verify the requestor's identity or authority to make the request. You may only make a verifiable consumer request for access or data portability twice within a 12-month period. Making a verifiable consumer request does not require you to create an account with us. 

Right to Opt-Out 

We do not sell the personal information of consumers, and minors we actually know are less than 16 years of age. Therefore, it is not necessary to opt-out. 

Changes to This Consumer Privacy Notice

If we would like to use your previously collected personal data for different purposes than those we notified you about at the time of collection, we will provide you with notice and, where required by law, seek your consent, before using your personal data for a new or unrelated purpose.
