CollegeData Security Policy

At CollegeData, a service provided by 1st Financial Bank USA, we are committed to maintaining the security of your personal information. As part of this commitment, we take a number of steps to enhance the safety and confidentiality of information sent to or from CollegeData over the Internet.

For security purposes, our computer systems employ software programs to monitor network traffic, to identify unauthorized attempts to upload or change information, and to prevent denial of services attacks or other attacks intended to cause damage.

All communication of personally identifiable information to and from CollegeData is transmitted over HTTPS using Transport Layer Security (TLS). TLS creates a private conversation between two communicating applications, such as your computer and our corporate Internet server. When your data is transmitted over the Internet, it is encrypted, or scrambled, at the sending end and then decrypted at the receiving end, helping to ensure that the information remains confidential.

As further protection, we recommend that you use a browser that supports 128-bit encryption to gain access to your CollegeData account. We use 128-bit encryption because that is the highest level of encryption generally available today. Examples of browsers supporting 128-bit encryption include the latest versions of Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome and Safari.

No one can access your account without your User Name and Password. You generate your User Name at the time of sign up. You may change your Password as often as you like after successfully logging into CollegeData.

We also want you to know that we maintain physical, electronic and procedural safeguards that comply with federal standards to guard your nonpublic personal information. Our security procedures are aimed at preventing unauthorized access to such information and are reviewed and audited periodically for compliance with federal standards.

If you have any questions about our Security Policy please contact us by phone toll-free at 1-888-828-9640 or by mail:
