MPS joins with certain third parties to deliver online products and services.

If you agree to receive emails from MPS, we keep the information you give us and may use it to send you email messages regarding your account or for other customer service purposes.
CLIENT IDENTIFICATION NOTICE
Information Collection Procedures for Opening Accounts
To help the government fight the funding of terrorism and money laundering activities, Federal law requires all financial institutions to obtain, verify and record information that identifies each customer who opens an account. Therefore, all new and existing customers are subject to the identity verification requirements.
When you open an account, we will ask for your name, address and identification number, and, in the case of an individual, your date of birth. For business accounts, we may also obtain this information for individuals associated with the business. We may also request to see a valid driver’s license or other approved identifying documents. In all cases, MPS is committed to protecting your privacy and identity.
In compliance with the Privacy Shield Principles, MPS commits to resolve complaints about our collection or use of your personal information. EU individuals with inquiries or complaints regarding our Privacy Shield policy should first contact MPS at email@example.com.
