Brainerd BN Credit Union (Credit Union) recognizes its responsibility to protect the privacy of our members’ nonpublic personal information. The Credit Union is committed to making available financial products and services that will enable the member to meet their financial needs and goals while at the same time protecting the members’ non-public personal information. Protecting personal information and using it in a manner consistent with the member’s expectations is a high priority for everyone associated with the Credit Union.
The Board of Directors is ultimately responsible for the Credit Union’s adherence to all applicable laws and regulations governing collection, use, or disclosure of nonpublic information obtained from members in the ordinary course of business. The Board designates executive management to direct the activities required to implement and maintain compliance with this policy.
The member also has a responsibility to safeguard their financial information.
- The Credit Union will collect only the personal information that is necessary to conduct its business. That means just what is necessary to provide competitive financial products and services and no more. We collect this information about members from applications and other forms, information about member transactions with us, our affiliates or others, and information we receive from consumer reporting agencies.
- The member will always have access to their information. They will always have the opportunity to review their information and make necessary changes to ensure that the Credit Union’s records are complete and accurate.
- The Credit Union will only share information when it is absolutely necessary. The Credit Union will only share information to administer the products and services they provide, when required to do so by the government, or when they partner with other businesses to offer a broader array of products and services.
- The Credit Union will partner only with businesses that follow strict confidentiality requirements. The businesses selected will offer products designed to enhance the member’s economic well-being. Under no circumstances will the Credit Union authorize these firms to charge the member’s account without their express consent, and the Credit Union will not sell member information to telemarketing firms.
CONFIDENTIALITY AND SECURITY SAFEGUARDS
The Credit Union will protect the member’s personal information. The Credit Union will maintain strong security controls to ensure that member information in files and computers is protected. The Credit Union limits employee access to confidential member information to those employees with a business reason for knowing such information. Where appropriate, the Credit Union 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.
