Consumer Privacy Notice

Privacy at Northern Trust - Keeping Your Finances a Private Matter

What does Northern Trust do with your personal information?
Financial companies choose how they share your personal information. Federal law gives consumers the right to limit some but not all sharing. Federal law also requires us to tell you how we collect, share and protect your personal information. Please read this notice carefully to understand what we do.

The types of personal information we collect and share depend on the product or service you have with us. This information can include:

  • Social Security number and income

What we do?
How does Northern Trust protect my personal information?
To protect your personal information from unauthorized access and use, we use security measures that comply with federal law. These measures include computer safeguards and secured files and buildings.

How does Northern Trust collect my personal information?
We collect your personal information, for example, when you

  • Open an account or deposit money
  • Make deposits or withdrawals from your account or apply for a loan
  • Give us your contact information

We also collect your personal information from others, such as credit bureaus, affiliates or other companies.

Why can't I limit all sharing?
Federal law gives you the right to limit only

  • Sharing for affiliates’ everyday business purposes — information about your credit worthiness
  • Affiliates from using your information to market to you
  • Sharing for nonaffiliates to market to you

State laws and individual companies may give you additional rights to limit sharing.

What happens when I limit sharing for an account I hold jointly with someone else?
Your choices will apply only to you — unless you tell us otherwise.
