In all cases, Farm Credit of Florida does not permit any suppliers or service providers to disclose or sell your information to third parties.
Federal or State law, or regulations, may require us to disclose confidential information in certain situations. Such situations include requests from law enforcement agencies or criminal or civil legal proceedings.

Security and Intrusion Detection
Data encryption – If you are using a security-enabled browser (such as Microsoft Internet Explorer version 2.1 or greater, or Netscape Navigator version 2.0 or greater), the information you provide us is encrypted, making it extremely difficult to read, even if it is wrongly intercepted. Our website uses industry-standard Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology to allow for the encryption of potentially sensitive information such as your name and address and critically sensitive information such as your social security number or account number.
For website security purposes and to ensure that this site remains available to all users, traffic on the site is monitored to identify unauthorized attempts to upload or change information, or cause disruptions or damage. Unauthorized attempts to upload or change information on this website are strictly prohibited and may be punishable under the law.
External Links – Weblinking
Farm Credit of Florida may provide links to independent websites maintained by various federal agencies or other organizations, solely as a benefit to our customers. These other sites may have their own policies, which Farm Credit of Florida does not control, and thus are not addressed by our policy. While we do our best to provide you with helpful, trustworthy resources, we do not endorse, approve or guarantee information, products, services or recommendations provided at any of the sites to which we have provided links.
Farm Credit of Florida is not responsible for the content or accuracy of any of these linked sites, nor are we responsible for any loss or damage resulting from the use of any linked websites. We are not liable for any failure of products or services advertised or provided on these linked sites. We offer these links on an “as is” basis.
Email and internet-related fraudulent schemes, such as “phishing,” are being perpetrated with increasing frequency, creativity and intensity. Phishing involves the use of seemingly legitimate e-mail messages and websites to deceive consumers into disclosing sensitive information, such as bank or loan account information, Social Security numbers, credit card numbers, passwords, and personal identification numbers (PINs). The perpetrator of the fraudulent e-mail message may use various means to convince the recipient that the message is legitimate and from a trusted source with which the recipient has an established business relationship. Techniques such as a false “from” address or the use of seemingly legitimate company logos, weblinks and graphics may be used to mislead e-mail recipients.
You should promptly report suspicious activity or email communications to the Federal Trade Commission (FTC). Send the actual email you received to firstname.lastname@example.org. If you believe you have been scammed, file your complaint at ftc.gov, and then visit the FTC’s Identity Theft website ftc.gov/idtheft to learn how to minimize your risk associated from identity theft.
If you receive a suspicious message that appears to be coming from Farm Credit of Florida, or discover a potentially phony Farm Credit of Florida website, please let us know by calling 561-965-9001, or by sending e-mail to info@FarmCreditFL.com so that we may take appropriate action.
