Online Privacy Practices

Your Right To Privacy

Virginia Beach Schools Federal Credit Union (VBSFCU) respects our members’ rights to privacy.  In addition, we support this policy in the online arena and feel it is our obligation to clearly state our privacy policy to all site visitors.

The security of your personal information is a top priority for us.  We are committed to helping you keep your identity and information secure.

What information does VBSFCU Collect?

VBSFCU collects standard, non-identifying information about visits to our site such as time and date visited IP address and country of origin.

This information is used to compile standard statistics on-site use.

Our site uses a form for members to request information on products and services and an online loan application.  Both of these forms collect visitors contact information (such as e-mail address), unique identifiers (such as social security number) and some financial information (such as account numbers).

Furthermore, this information is used to contact the requestor when necessary.  The unique identifiers and any financial information are used to check a user’s qualifications, the same as if the visitor had come into one of our offices.

Any online information transmitted is sent via the strongest available encryption method to ensure the privacy of personal data.  We use secure servers for all forms, applications, and account information.

Employees with access to personal information are required by credit union bylaws to maintain the confidentiality of any information transmitted.

Do you collect information on kids pages?

Our kid’s pages do not collect any online information.  We do not try to entice children by the prospect of a special game, prize or other activity to persuade the child to divulge information.

Does VBSFCU’s website contain links to other websites?
