Bank of Washington does not automatically collect personal information from visitors to its websites. Bank of Washington does use tools such as cookies or click stream auditing for our own uses, such as gathering web analytics. Cookies are small files containing information that a website uses to maintain preferences or state across visits. Bank of Washington does not store confidential or sensitive information in cookies. Cookies are a requirement for some applications, such as Online Banking, because they help protect the privacy of a customer's transactions by, for example, automatically terminating the online session if the customer forgets to log out. Click stream auditing includes information such as the visitor's IP address, access time, and pages viewed. This information is used to determine the effectiveness of our advertising.
