a. Session cookies:
We use session cookies to record the fact that you have successfully logged in to our online banking site. When you log in, you are sent a cookie that uniquely identifies your current session. When you request an action, such as to check your statement, the cookie is sent with the request allowing online banking to know who you are and verify that you are properly logged into the system. Without session cookies, we would have to demand your login information for every single online banking function you request. After you log out or remain inactive for a certain period of time, the cookie expires and becomes invalid and you must log in again before you can do anything else.
b. Persistent cookies:
In contrast to session cookies, persistent cookies are stored on your online device between browsing sessions until expiry or deletion. We use persistent cookies for a variety of purposes:
- Collecting website performance data:
We collect statistical information on how our users use our websites for statistical and evaluation purposes to help us improve the performance of our website.
- Memorized Debit Card for Coast Online and Coast Mobile Banking:
You can select to have a cookie securely store your Coast Capital Savings debit card number and nickname, so that when you log in to Coast Online or Coast Mobile Banking, you won’t need to enter your debit card every time to login.
