INTERNET SECURITY INFORMATION
SITE SECURITY INFORMATION
Republic Bank & Trust Company understands that security and confidentiality are very important to our online customers.
In this notice, the words “we”, “our” and “us” refer to Republic Bank & Trust Company. That is why we work hard to protect
you and your business account information during your online sessions. We are committed to improving your online
security and helping protect you against fraud and identity theft while performing online internet banking transactions
with us. Your initial level of security and protection is your personally selected User ID and Password to access your
account. This initial security check verifies who you are, allowing you access to your account information while helping to
prevent unauthorized access.
The next level of security is the establishment of a secure session using Secure Socket Layer technology (SSL). SSL is the
leading security protocol for data transfer on the Internet. SSL technology scrambles your account information as it moves
between your PC’s browser and our computer systems, helping to ensure that your information remains secure and
confidential while you review account information and conduct business transactions with us online.

Protect yourself and your information against fraudulent Web sites by always checking the URL/Address every time you log in. The Republic Bank & Trust Company URL that should appear in your browser contains “www.thebuildcard.com”.
After you have finished your secured online session, you should always use the Log Out link to end your session. The Log Out link appears on every page in the upper right hand corner. After you log out, no further transactions can be conducted without re-entering your User ID and password.

establish your secure session.

Never provide your account number, PIN or password to anyone who calls or contacts you unsolicited. And while we may
initiate a contact requesting personal information or security verification, it is good practice to request a callback number
to verify that the call is authentic and not someone attempting a fraudulent act.
If you receive suspicious calls or e-mails claiming to come from us, immediately contact our Customer Service Department
at 1-800-634-9558 and ask for the Security Department.
