Why? Financial companies choose how they share your personal information.  Federal law gives consumers the right to limit some but not all sharing.  Federal law also requires us to tell you how we collect, share, and protect your personal information.  Please read this notice carefully to understand what we do.

What? The types of personal information we collect and share depend on the product or service you have with us.  This information can include:

  • Social Security number and income;
  • Account balances and transaction history;
  • Employment information and credit history.

When you are no longer our customer, we continue to share your information as described in this notice.


All financial companies need to share customers’ personal information to run their everyday business. In the section below, we list the reasons financial companies can share their customers’ personal information; the reasons SouthState chooses to share; and whether you can limit this sharing.

Why can’t I limit all sharing? Federal law gives you the right to limit only

  • Sharing for affiliates’ everyday business purposes – information about your creditworthiness;
  • Affiliates from using your information to market to you;
  • Sharing for nonaffiliates to market to you.

State laws and individual companies may give you additional rights to limit sharing.

  • Our affiliates include a bank (SouthState Bank, N.A.), a factoring company (Corporate Billing, Inc.), a registered investment advisor (South State Advisory, Inc.) and a broker-dealer (Duncan Williams, Inc.)

Nonaffiliates Companies not related by common ownership or control.  They can be financial and nonfinancial companies.

  • SouthState does not share with nonaffiliates so they can market to you.

Joint marketing A formal agreement between nonaffiliated financial companies that together market financial products or services to you.

  • Our joint marketing partners may include other financial service companies.

Other Important Information: In addition to federal law, you may be protected by specific state or local regulations concerning information sharing and marketing.
