Gouverneur Savings web site site consists of informational and transactional sections. The transactional section consists of all areas associated with Gouverneur Savings iBanking. The iBanking area includes sections accessed from the websites' "iBanking" links. The following discloses our information gathering and dissemination practices for each of these sections.

You can visit this site and find out about our products and services or other information without giving us any information about yourself.

We do not collect identifying information about visitors to our site. All visitors remain anonymous.

We use standard software to collect non-identifying information about our visitors, such as:

  1. The type of Browser being used
  2. The date and time our site was accessed
  3. The IP address - This address is a unique string of numbers that identifies a computer on the Internet. These numbers are usually shown in groups separated by periods, like this: All resources on the Internet must have an IP address--or else they're not on the Internet at all.

We use this information to create summary statistics and to determine the level of interest in information available on our site.

E-mail is our preferred method of communication and we value the privilege to use it. Visitors may elect to provide us with name, email address and phone number information via E-mail, [online registration forms]. This information is used internally, as appropriate, to handle the sender's request. It is not disseminated or sold to other organizations. Internet email is not a secure facility and should not be used to communicate with Gouverneur Savings about your accounts.

In the transactional section, a single cookie is used for the transactional session information only.  A unique session number appended with a number associated with the customer's FI, is stored in a "session cookie" as part of the log on process.  No customer or transaction data is ever placed in the cookie.

These per-session or temporary cookies are stored only for the current browsing session and are deleted from the user's computer when their browser is closed.

We maintain physical, electronic and procedural safeguards that comply with federal standards to guard your nonpublic personal information.
