DIAMOND BANK uses two types of cookies on our websites: session cookies and persistent cookies. Session cookies are used during a single website visit and are automatically deleted from your computer when you leave the site. Persistent cookies are used to track website activity over a longer period and remain on your computer until either you choose to delete them or they expire.
Session cookies perform several critical functions on DIAMOND BANK's websites. For example, they protect your security while you are using Diamond Online Banking by ensuring that nobody else can view your data while you are signed on. They are also used to ensure that you do not pay the same bill twice during a single banking session. Your web browser must allow session cookies in order for you to use Diamond Online Banking.
Persistent cookies are also used for a number of purposes on DIAMOND BANK's websites. They are used for your convenience to save your Diamond Online Banking personal preferences. For example, you must allow persistent cookies if you want your browser to remember your card number, your language preference and your default home page each time you sign on to Diamond Online Banking.
DIAMOND BANK also uses persistent cookies to collect analytical information about how visitors use our websites. For example, we may measure website usage, access to online services, and the level of interest in particular products. We use this information to improve our service and provide a better experience for visitors to our websites.
Another type of persistent cookie, known as a locally shared object, may be created by software applications running on your computer when viewing material such as Flash enabled videos on DIAMOND BANK websites.
