This Online Privacy Policy Notice (“Notice”) describes how CFCU Community Credit Union collects, uses and manages personal information about you when you interact with Us or Our third party service providers online through your computer, smartphone, tablet or other mobile devices, collectively referred to as “Device(s)”, and applies to CFCU Community Credit Union’s Webpages, branded social media sites, mobile applications, digital banking applications, online chat services, and digital advertising campaigns, collectively referred to as “Digital Property.”  The terms “CFCU,” “We,” “Our,” or “Us” refers to CFCU Community Credit Union and any affiliates.

In addition to the privacy practices described within this Notice, information collected by CFCU during application for, servicing or maintaining of your account(s) or services with Us is also governed by CFCU’s Privacy Policy. Please reference this document for additional details on Our privacy practices. Further, social media sites may have their own privacy policies that you should understand prior to using their services to interact with Us on those sites.

By using or interacting with Our Digital Property, you agree to the terms and conditions of this Notice and consent to the collection, use and sharing of your personal information subject to and consistent with applicable laws, regulations and other notices, disclosures, and agreements you may have received or entered into based on your relationship with Us.

Aggregated / De-identified Information

Collected personal information may be aggregated, anonymized, and/or de-identified (We remove any details that identify you personally). We may share this aggregated and/or de-identified information with third-party providers to help deliver products, services, and content that are better tailored to the users of Our Digital Property and for Our own business purposes where permissible under applicable laws and regulations.

Children’s Privacy

We recognize the importance of protecting privacy where children are involved. Our Digital Property is not marketed to individuals under the age of 13. We do not knowingly collect personal information from children under 13 without prior parental consent.

Geolocation Data

Geolocation data collected from and about you online, as described in this Notice, is used, and shared to provide location-based messages, offers, and interactions, which may be of interest to you.

Our Digital Property, including the CFCU More Application (“App”), may collect location data and provide location-based messages, offers, and interactions. This information may be collected in the background when the App is not in use. Messages and offers may utilize location-based data paired with other information collected as described in this Notice to tailor any such messages and offers. These may be provided via push notification on your Device or via message when you use the App. When using the App, you may accept or not accept push notifications directly through the App. You may also limit location permissions on your Device using your Device’s privacy and location controls.    

Information Security

CFCU restricts access to non-public personal information about its members to CFCU employees and approved third parties working on Our behalf who have a specific business purpose in utilizing member data. CFCU employees are trained in the importance of confidentiality and member privacy by maintaining physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards that comply with federal regulations and leading industry practices to safeguard members' non-public personal information.

While We implement stringent security measures to protect your information and information from unauthorized access and disclosure, no security system is infallible, and we cannot guarantee the absolute security of your information.

What Members and Consumers Can Do To Help Protect Their Privacy

While CFCU is committed to protecting the privacy of its members and consumers, you can help safeguard personal information by following these simple guidelines provided as examples:

  • Report lost or stolen card(s) immediately to CFCU.
  • Protect your card(s) at all times by carrying only the ones you intend to use. Store all other cards in a safe place.
  • Memorize your PIN and keep it confidential. Do not write it on the card or keep it in your wallet.
  • Never give your card information over the phone unless you initiate the call.
  • Regularly review your transaction history and report any unauthorized transactions immediately.
  • Treat all of your non-public personal information and financial information as confidential and proprietary.
  • Keep usernames and passwords confidential.
  • Do not use the same username and password for multiple online accounts; if you use the same username and password for multiple accounts and one of those accounts is breached, all your accounts could be at risk.

When interacting with CFCU on a digital platform that is not owned by CFCU, such as a social media site, never include sensitive personal or non-public information. Communications with CFCU about your application, membership, and accounts with Us should only take place in a secure CFCU channel or by phone or in person with a CFCU Representative. Social media sites are not an appropriate place to conduct or discuss your financial transactions.

Please review the privacy and security policies of any linked websites reached from CFCU Digital Property. CFCU does not guarantee and is not responsible for the privacy or security of these sites, including the accuracy, completeness, or reliability of their information.
