Privacy Policy

Great Erie Federal Credit Union Privacy Policy Statement

An important note to our members: It is the practice of the Great Erie Federal Credit Union to vigorously protect our member's confidential information. Our credit union is committed to making available financial products and services that will enable you to meet your financial needs and reach your financial goals. Protecting personal information and using it in a manner consistent with your expectations is a high priority for everyone associated with our credit union.

As a member of our credit union, you also have a responsibility to safeguard your financial information. To ensure that you can rely upon the quality of products and services we make available, our credit union stands 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.

Where 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 as will 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.

Maintaining the privacy of your information is how we do business unlike many financial institutions; your credit union exists to serve you, our member/owner through providing high-quality financial services for your benefit, not other third parties. This simple fact drives our philosophy on how we handle your financial information. Other than the third party relationships outlined above - and being subject to federal and state laws governing release of information through court actions - you can rest assured that your credit union is on your side in protecting the privacy of your financial and personal information.

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 circumstance will we authorize these firms to charge your account without your express consent, and we will not sell member information to telemarketing firms. Our credit union will offer you a choice in how your information is used.

You, as a member of Great Erie Federal Credit Union, may elect to keep your information from being shared with our business partners. If you notify us in writing or by calling (716) 662-1311 during normal business hours, that you do not want your information shared, we will take all reasonable steps to make sure that your requests are followed. At least once a year, we will remind all of our members of their right to choose.
