M&T will never sell or otherwise disclose your email address to third parties. We will only use your address to communicate with you regarding the servicing of your accounts, scheduling an appointment or to make you aware of products and services that may be of interest to you.​

​When you send M&T an email, we may retain your message and our respons​​e for quality assurance purposes. It is important to remember that regular (non-encrypted) email is not secure. Please do not send us per​sonal or account information via email. If you need to communicate sensitive information of this nature to us, please contact the appropriate Customer Service line for your account type.

We collect info​​rmation from you when you fill out an online application for a new product or service (loans, etc.).

All online applications are encrypted to maintain the security of your information.

To better serve you and to provide a more effective website, we use “cookies” as part of our interaction with your web browser. Cookies are small text files that a website’s server places on your computer. The cookies provide a means for websites that you visit to track browsing activities conducted with your computer. This includes information such as pages and content viewed, the time and duration of visits, search queries entered into search engines, and whether a computer user clicked on an advertisement. Cookies make the personalization of your web experiences possible and can also be used to retain data related to a particular browser such as items in online shopping carts.

We use cookies to determine if you have previously visited our website, the location of where you are visiting our website from, to log the pages you use on our site, and for a number of administrative purposes (for example, to store your preferences for certain kinds of information). We may use information collected through your use of our website, combined with information that we obtain from third parties, to determine who you are or your email address. All of this information helps us in our efforts to continually improve our website and to deliver and experience personalized to your specific needs and location.

There are other devices for tracking online activity, including web beacons. A web beacon is a small string of software code that represents a graphic image on a website or in email. Web beacons can be used for many purposes – including website traffic reporting, unique visitor counts, advertising/auditing/reporting, and personalization of a website.

​How We Respond to “Do Not Track” Signals

Some browsers incorporate a Do Not Track feature that signals to websites you visit that you do not want to have your online activity tracked. Tracking is not the same as using or collecting information in connection with a single website. For these purposes, tracking refers to collecting personal identifiable information from consumers who use or visit a website or online service as they move across different websites over time.

The M&T website is not yet set up to interpret or respond to Do Not Track signals communicated by your browser. Even so, as described more fully throughout this Internet Privacy Policy, we limit our use and collection of your personal information.

Additionally, you may choose not to accept cookies. Most browsers offer privacy settings for cookies. You will need to manage the cookie settings for each browser you use. However, please be aware that not accepting cookies could result in some inconvenience when using our website. For example, we may not be able to remember your User ID if you have asked us to do so when you log into an M&T online application.

​​​Working with Other Companies

From time to time, M&T may establish a relationship with other companies and vendors on the Internet to provide you with additional value and new products we may not offer ourselves. When permitted or required by law, we may share information with additional third parties for purposes including response to legal process. In these circumstances, we will treat information you provide us in the same manner described in our Privacy Policy. M&T offers access to other sites either through the use of hyperlinks or through “co-branded” sites in which both M&T and the other company share the same URL, domain name or pages within a domain name on the Internet. In some cases, the other site will also collect information from you. This information may include, but is not limited to, name, address, Social Security number, account numbers and date of birth. Please review the privacy policies of these third parties prior to providing any information to them when you link to their website to determine the extent to which third parties may disclose your information.

​Keeping Your Information Current

It is important for us to have your most current and up-to-date contact i​nformation. If you have had any changes to your contact information, please call or write us at the proper telephone number or address located within the Help Center. You may also call or write us at the telephone number or mailing address located on your account statements or other records as indicated.

​Back to Top >

​Security on the Web

We protect information you provide us online in several ways. We use encryption standards and SSL (Secure Socket Layer) technology to help ensure that information passes to M&T without being intercepted by third parties. User IDs and passcodes are used to help safeguard access to your information through the web. As always, we strongly encourage you to assist us in that effort by not sharing your M&T Online Banking U​​ser ID and passcode with anyone.

​Back to Top >

​Consolidation (Aggregation) Websites 

Please use caution when using consolidation sites. Consolidation sites are Internet sites that offer the ability to access all of your personal information on one website. In some cases, you may be encouraged to provide a consolidation site with your personal financial information, such as your U​​ser ID and bank PIN for M&T Online Banking. NEVER PROVIDE THIS INFORMATION TO A SITE THAT YOU DO NOT RECOGNIZE AND FULLY TRUST. All transactions initiated by a consolidation site using access information you provide are considered to be authorized by you, whether or not you were aware of the specific transaction.

​Changes to Our Internet Privacy Policy

This Policy should be reviewed periodically as it is subject to change from time to time. When a change has been made, we will post the revised policy on this page with a new "Last Updated" date at the top of the page. All changes will become effective when posted unless indicated otherwise.
