INTRODUCTION

Sidney Federal Credit Union is committed to protecting the privacy of its members and other users of its services. Your privacy is our priority. We are committed to providing the highest level of member service, and as such have adopted the following privacy policy, outlining the practices we will use to protect confidential information about our members.

We maintain partnership relationships with companies whose products are designed to help us provide service to meet the financial needs of our members. At times we will provide information to these partners in order to facilitate communication of useful information regarding products or services they provide. Correspondence our members receive from these partners originates with them, and they are provided only the information necessary to help them allow our members access to their products and services. We also comply with state and federal laws relating to the treatment of customer information.

It is our policy to strictly enforce standards to prevent any abuse of confidential information by limiting employee access to information, and by educating our employees with regard to member confidentially.

GENERAL PRIVACY POLICY

  • We respect your privacy. We will not share your individual customer information with third parties for any promotional purpose. We further stand behind the following privacy policy:
  • Our credit union will collect only the personal information that is necessary to conduct our business. That means just what is necessary to provide competitive financial products and services - no more.
  • Our credit union will protect your personal information. Our credit union will maintain strong security controls to ensure that member information in our files and computers is protected. When appropriate, we will use security coding techniques to protect against unauthorized access to personal records, ensure accuracy and integrity of communications and transactions, and protect member confidentiality.
  • You will always have access to your information. As a member of our credit union, you will, as always, have the opportunity to review your information and make necessary changes to ensure that our records are complete and accurate.
  • Our credit union will only share information when absolutely necessary. We will only share information to administer the products and services we provide, when required to do so by the government, or when we partner with other businesses to offer a broader array of products and services.
  • Our credit union will partner only with businesses that follow strict confidentiality requirements. The businesses we select will offer products designed to enhance our members’ economic well-being. Under no circumstances will we authorize these firms to charge your account without your express consent, and we will not sell member information to telemarketing firms.
  • We do not disclose any nonpublic personal information about our members and former members to anyone, except as permitted by law.
