Cascade Bank ("Cascade Bank") operates Cascadebank.com and may operate other websites. It is Cascade Bank's policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.
Like most website operators, Cascade Bank collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Cascade Bank's purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Cascade Bank's visitors use its website. From time to time, Cascade Bank may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
Cascade Bank also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on Cascadebank.com blogs/sites. Cascade Bank only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that commenter IP addresses and email addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog/site where the comment was left.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to Cascade Bank's websites choose to interact with Cascade Bank in ways that require Cascade Bank to gather personally-identifying information.

For example, we ask visitors who sign up at Cascadebank.com to provide a username and email address. Those who engage in transactions with Cascade Bank are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, Cascade Bank collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor's interaction with Cascade Bank. Cascade Bank does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.

Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using Cascade Bank's websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Cascade Bank will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, Cascade Bank discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Cascade Bank believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Cascade Bank, third parties or the public at large.
