When you interact with Presidential Bank Mortgage web site, we strive to make that experience easy, meaningful, and secure. We accomplish this in the following ways:
Cookies and Personal Identification. Standing alone, cookies, GIFs and other Web tools, as well as data derived from them, do not identify you personally. They merely recognize your browser. Unless you choose to identify yourself to Presidential Mortgage Group through the Apply Online process, you remain anonymous to us. Cookies come in two flavors: persistent and session-based.
Only persistent cookies remain on your computer after you've closed your browser or turned off your computer. They include such information as a unique identifier for your browser that only Presidential Mortgage Group can read and use, and the fact that you are a customer or prior Web site visitor (whatever the case may be). We are especially careful about the security and confidentiality of the information we send through persistent cookies.
Session cookies exist only during an online session with Presidential Mortgage Group. They disappear from your computer when you close your browser software or turn off your computer. Session cookies allow you to conduct transactions or request your own personal or account information on our Web site. They contain encrypted or encoded information about your account(s), and/or identifying information that you have previously provided to us. This information allows Presidential Mortgage Group to process your online transactions and requests. Examples include a request to see your account balance or to place a trade order on your behalf. Without the session cookie information, we would not be able to complete your Web transactions securely. Session cookies help us make sure you are who you say you are after you have logged in.
Secure Server through Verisign
Web security and keeping customer information secure is important to Presidential Bank Mortgage. All customer account transactions are done through the Presidential Bank secure web server (https://secure2.presidential.com). On the bottom of the secure pages of the Presidential Bank Mortgage web site, we have placed the Versign secure site logo that links to Verisign telling a visitor that our site is on a secure server.
In order to better protect your personal information, Presidential Bank has adopted the policy of our customers using browsers capable of 128-bit encryption. This insures that the process of sending us your personal information over the internet is safe. The information is encrypted by your web browser using a "key" that will enable it to be legally decrypted only by us. Using a 128-bit cipher makes it exponentially more difficult to decrypt than the previously accepted standard of 40-bit encryption.
In order to check the level of encryption your current browser is using; on the browser window choose the "Help" menu, from the Help menu choose "About Internet Explorer" or "About Netscape", depending on your browser type. In the "About" page it should say "Cipher Strength: 128-bit" for Microsoft's Internet Explorer, or Netscape users will see "This version supports high-grade (128-bit) security...". If you are using any browser with a lower strength cipher than 128-bit encryption, you will NOT be able to view the online application for Presidential Bank Mortgage. You need to upgrade your browser version.
To upgrade your browser:
Select the product "Internet Explorer 6" (or the latest version available) and your operating system and follow the directions to download and install this browser.
