PNC's Commitment to You
This Policy applies to customer relationships established in the United States. Some PNC affiliates are licensed to do business in foreign jurisdictions. The web sites of those affiliates have separate privacy policies which apply to their customers based upon the laws of the jurisdiction in which the affiliates are established.
The third party companies we use for online tracking have a network of advertising companies and may share anonymous information about your visits to pnc.com and other Web sites with us, and may use it in order to provide ads about goods and services of interest to you and which would be relevant to you, based on your browsing on PNC.com. From time to time, we may also share anonymous information with such third party companies in an aggregate form, for purposes of analysis and improvement of our Web site. If you would like more information about the use of third-party cookies and tags, or the process of opting out of such cookies or tags, please go to www.networkadvertising.org.
Online Tracking and Advertising
PNC uses third-party advertising networks to distribute our advertisements on other websites and mobile applications where we have paid to advertise. These advertisements may use tracking technologies to capture certain information, such as IP address, usage information, or your responsiveness to our advertisements. However, the technologies used do not capture information that identifies you individually. PNC does participate in third party ad network self-regulatory programs for online behavioral advertising.
Pursuant to these programs, PNC honors Do Not Track opt-out preferences that you make to third party advertising networks that we hire to perform online advertising on our behalf.
Two examples are the: Digital Advertising Alliance's (DAA) Self-Regulatory Program for Online Behavioral Advertising and DoubleClick. Click on either or both of these links to stop online advertising from PNC by either of these ad programs. You can also help limit the amount of online advertising you receive by visiting www.networkadvertising.org to opt-out of advertising from Network Advertising Initiative member companies.
We do not deliver online advertising to customers that have opted out from the receipt of commercial email from PNC when an online advertising campaign utilizes customer email addresses in connection with a hashing process that anonymously matches our ads to our customers who have a presence on select websites.
PNC does not provide a Do Not Track opt-out mechanism to prevent online advertising to you. Instead, we utilize the established industry mechanisms discussed above.
PNC does not respond to a do-not-track signal from your browser. See www.networkadvertising.org for information on how to opt out from third party cookies or tags. As noted above, when you use PNC's web sites, third parties used by PNC may collect certain information which does not identify you individually on the PNC web sites or on other sites where PNC advertises. Please review the Privacy Policies of all web sites you visit to ascertain the type of information collected on those sites. The type of personal information that PNC collects online about you is identified above under heading Personal Information and Data, subsection: We Collect Personal Information About You When.
Visit the Federal Trade Commission to learn more about how to limit tracking and online advertising through controlling cookies and other tracking technology that is attached to your browser.
The California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) is a right afforded to only residents of the State of California.
California defines residency as (1) every individual who is in the State for other than a temporary or transitory purpose, and (2) every individual who is domiciled in the State who is outside the State for a temporary or transitory purpose. All other individuals are nonresidents. Examples of domicile include paying taxable income, maintaining a permanent home, paying resident tuition, voting in a California election, or any other benefit not ordinarily extended to nonresidents.
Note that as part of servicing consumer requests and customer accounts, PNC may collect certain categories of information as noted in the “California Consumer Privacy Act Privacy Notice”; however, not all categories of information are likely to be collected from or about each individual consumer. The specific categories of information collected are dependent on the PNC service(s) provided.
Due to other Federal and State laws, PNC may not be able to fulfill deletion of personal information because such information is needed to provide your product or service and/or meet legal requirements.
As a resident of the state of California, per the California Consumer Privacy Act, you have the right to request a correction of your inaccurate personal information.
PNC offers multiple ways to correct inaccurate personal information:
- As a PNC customer, you have the capability to immediately correct inaccurate information by logging into your Online Banking account at PNC.com
- By calling 1-888-PNC-BANK
- By visiting a local branch
- As a current PNC employee, you have the capability to immediately report a change in your personal information by going to Your Profile on the Your Snapshot tab in Pathfinder. If you are a former employee, contact the HR Service Center at 1-877-968-7762, option 1.
- Or, open a Data Subject Access Request (DSAR) case to request a correction of your inaccurate personal information which could take up to 45 days to complete (or 90 days if an extension is required). Please note that by opening the DSAR case we will need to intake credentials to validate you as a requestor. Once the validation process is complete, PNC will be notifying you within 10 days on the status of the case. PNC might also need to reach out for additional supporting documentation to make the correction/update. If this is the preferred option, please click the link below.
For anything unrelated to personal information correction requests, including general servicing questions or concerns, check out our self-service resources, or give us a call:
- Customer Service Center, 1-888-PNC-BANK.
If you prefer to exercise your rights for California Consumer Privacy Act by phone, you can call 1-888-PNC-BANK.
The International Customer Privacy Notice is applicable to non-US customers and prospects only. Additional privacy rights may be applicable based on your local jurisdiction.
