Your Role in Security

Choose a good Personal Identification Number! You should carefully select a PIN that is hard to guess and never use a word that can be found in the dictionary. Memorize your PIN! Even the best PIN is worthless if it's written on a note attached to your computer or an entry in your checkbook.

Do not share your Internet Banking PIN with anyone else. Your PIN is designed to protect the privacy of your banking information, but it will only work if you keep it to yourself. If you think your PIN has been compromised, change it immediately online and immediately contact the Bank. Call us at 843-815-7111 or send us a note using the tab labeled Contact Us near the top of our web page.

Change your Login ID and PIN as often as you wish. (We recommend changing your PIN at least once each month.)

Don't leave your computer unattended during a NetTeller session - click on "exit" to end your session.

Once you have finished conducting your banking on the Internet, always sign off before visiting other Internet sites.

If anyone else has access to your computer, clear your browser's cache in order to eliminate copies of Web pages that have been stored on your hard drive.

Avoid using Public Internet Access Terminals when conducting your Internet Banking.

Important Note: While we continue to do everything possible to ensure the security of our system, we are not responsible for any breach of security that is outside of our control.
