Virginia Beach Schools Federal Credit Union (VBSFCU) historically has respected our members’ rights to privacy.  We continue to support this policy in the online arena and feel it is our obligation to clearly state our privacy policy to all site visitors.

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).  This information is used to contact the requestor when necessary.  The unique identifiers and any financial information is 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 privacy of your personal data.  We use secure servers for all forms, applications, and your account information.  Employees with access to personal information are required by credit union bylaws to maintain the confidentiality of any information transmitted.

Our kids 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.  For assistance with protecting your children online, visit the FTC dedicated page:  http://www.consumer.ftc.gov/topics/kids-online-safety

The site does contain links to other sites.  VBSFCU does not assume any responsibility for the privacy policies or the content of such web sites.  No personal information is sold or transferred to these or other parties.  However, we may, from time to time, provide visitors with information on special loan or savings promotions.
