Code of Conduct

Authentication

In keeping with our tradition of confidentiality, methods of customer authentication, such as an authorization code, are used whenever necessary in the ordinary course of business to obtain information of a confidential nature.

Accountability

It is the policy of Bullseye to treat all information regarding its customers and employees in strictest confidence. Failure to maintain the confidentiality of this information will result in corrective action, up to and including immediate dismissal.

Procedures to Restrict Flow of Information

Because Bullseye is a multi-service financial institution, banking and securities laws, as well as good business practices, require that Bullseye have procedures (“firewalls”) to prevent material nonpublic information obtained while engaging in one of Bullseye’s diverse business activities from being utilized improperly by others within or outside of Bullseye.
