California Consumer Privacy Act Disclosure

Revision Date: January 1, 2023


This California Consumer Privacy Act Disclosure explains how Regions Bank (and other companies with the Regions name) (“Company,” “we,” or “us”) collect, use, disclose, sell, share, and retain personal information relating to California residents covered by the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018, as amended by the California Privacy Rights Act (“CCPA”). This notice is provided pursuant to the CCPA.


Under the CCPA, ‘Personal Information’ is information that identifies, relates to, or could reasonably be linked directly or indirectly with a particular California resident. The CCPA, however, does not apply to certain information, such as information subject to the Gramm-Leach- Bliley Act (“GLBA”) in addition to other types of information as set forth in the CCPA.

The specific Personal Information that we collect, use, and disclose relating to a California resident covered by the CCPA will vary based on our relationship or interaction with that individual. For example, this Disclosure does not apply with respect to information that we collect about California residents who apply for or obtain our financial products and services for personal, family, or household purposes. For more information about how we collect, disclose, and secure information relating to these customers, please refer to our Privacy Pledge.

Please also refer to our Online Privacy Notice.  In the event of a conflict between the terms of this Disclosure and the terms of the Online Privacy Notice, the terms of this Disclosure will govern and control as to California residents.

Keeping Personal Information secure is one of our most important priorities. Consistent with our obligations under applicable laws and regulations, we maintain physical, technical, electronic, procedural and organizational safeguards and security measures that are designed to protect personal data against accidental, unlawful, or unauthorized destruction, loss, alteration, disclosure, or access, whether it is processed by us or elsewhere.

We will acknowledge receipt of your request within 10 business days and advise you how long we expect it will take to respond if we are able to verify your identity. We will verify your identity by matching the information you provide us with information in our systems. If you have a password-protected account with us, we may verify your identity through our existing authentication practices for your account and we will also require you to re-authenticate yourself before we disclose your personal information. Requests for specific pieces of Personal Information will require additional information to verify your identity. We will delete any new personal information we collect to verify your identity as soon as practical after processing your request unless otherwise required by law.

If you submit a request on behalf of another person, we may require proof of authorization and verification of identity directly from the person for whom you are submitting a request.

In some instances, we may not be able to honor your request. For example, we will not honor your request if we cannot verify your identity or if we cannot verify that you have the authority to make a request on behalf of another individual. Additionally, we will not honor your request where an exception applies, such as where the disclosure of Personal Information would adversely affect the rights and freedoms of another consumer or where the Personal Information that we maintain about you is not subject to the CCPA’s access, correction, or deletion rights.

We will advise you in our response if we are not able to honor your request and the reasons why. We will not provide social security numbers, driver’s license numbers or government issued identification numbers, financial account numbers, health insurance or medical identification numbers, account passwords or security questions and answers, or any specific pieces of information.
