YOUR RIGHT TO FINANCIAL PRIVACY

The types of personal information we collect and share depend on the products and services you have with us. This information can include Social Security number; transaction or loss history, account balances, credit history, payment history, credit card and other debt.
When you are no longer a member, we continue to share your information as described in this notice.
Federal law gives you 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. This notice explains what we do.
To protect your personal information from unauthorized access and use, we use security measures that comply with federal law. These measures include computer safeguards and secured files and buildings.

We also collect your personal information from others, such as credit bureaus.
