This notice explains how the Credit Union collects and shares your non-public personal information and further describes your rights to limit what information we may share about you.
This privacy notice replaces any previous privacy notices from us. We reserve the right to revise our privacy notice as our business needs and practices change or as the law requires. If we revise our policies, we will provide our active members with copies of our new policies at that time.
