Heritage Bank & Trust ("Heritage") uses several layers of technology to ensure the confidentiality of your transactions.
For your protection, Heritage’s Online Banking requires 128-bit browser encryption. This industry standard prevents the possible interception of your personal financial information over the Internet. Secure browsers employ Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology to communicate with servers. This technology encrypts - or scrambles - your account information so it's virtually impossible for anyone other than Heritage to read it.
Heritage’s Online Banking supports an Internet Explorer browser version 4.0 or higher. This browser version helps protect your personal financial information. Most browsers display an icon to indicate that data sent through the website is encrypted, two examples of which are the locked padlock icon and the key icon. These icons signify that Secure Socket Layer encryption (SSL) is used on the site.

No one at Heritage will ever ask for you r password. Protecting your personal password is important to the security of your account. Please never share your password with anyone.
Only our bank customers or administrators can send or receive transactions to or from Heritage’s computer. Our computer system does not directly connect to the Internet. It is isolated by a "firewall" of software and hardware products that limit the access from “outside” computers.
For your protection, we recommend that you do not e-mail account numbers, debit card numbers, passwords, or other critical financial information. We cannot guarantee the security of standard e-mail communication.
