Thanks for your question. Please note that when you first opened your account, your bank by law provided you with the laws of privacy and how the bank uses or cannot use your information. Regardless, a banking relationship is not for a specific term like a car loan or a rental agreement. Instead, the bank always reserves the right to cancel your banking relationship. For example, if a customer bounced too many checks, the bank can cancel the account. Accordingly, Googling your name is XXXXX XXXXX invasion of privacy as the bank has the right to conduct due diligence and to make sure that they do not have a banking relationship with anyone that they do not feel meets their customer profile.
thanks for understanding. I always feel bad providing advice you may not want to hear.
Please be so kind as to rate my answer ok or better so that I am compensated for helping you. I wish you well.
