SEFCU is firmly committed to maintaining the privacy of our members and the confidentiality of their personal and financial information. We recognize your right to privacy and, in turn, accept the responsibility to keep the information you provide to us confidential.
As an extension of our long-standing commitment to keeping the information you share with us secure, we pledge that all such information will be confidentially maintained to the best of our abilities. At no time will SEFCU furnish names, addresses, e-mail addresses, or any other private information about our members for the benefit of a third party.
Please see SEFCU's Privacy Notice found at www.sefcu.com/Privacy-Notice.
SEFCU does not share or sell any member information to any non-affiliated third party other than those with whom we contract for assisting us in conducting credit union and subsidiary business and as may be required or permitted by law, therefore members may not opt-out of that type of information sharing. Members may have limited opt-out rights related to marketing from SEFCU's affiliates. Please see below.
Opt-Out Option from Affiliate Marketing
SEFCU is providing this notice. Federal law gives you the right to limit some but not all marketing from our affiliates. Federal law also requires us to give you this notice to tell you about your choice to limit marketing from our affiliates.
You may limit our affiliates, the SEFCU group of companies, such as our insurance and mortgage banking affiliates, from marketing their products or services to you based on your personal information that we collect and share with them. This information may include your income, your account history with us, and your credit score.
Your choice to limit marketing offers from our affiliates will apply until such time as you inform us that you do wish to receive these marketing offers.
To limit marketing offers, contact our Member Solutions Center at 1-800-727-3328 or inform a branch representative the next time you visit any of our branches.
WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT WEB PRIVACY — SEFCU treats all information you provide to us in electronic form with the same confidentiality as that provided in person, whether you use our bank-by phone, ATM network, or Internet banking services.
Cookies – Cookies are randomly assigned numbers that attach to your computer to help us recognize your browser and track your session within our site. While you can configure your computer to keep it from accepting these cookies, we suggest that you keep this function enabled so that we can better customize the information you receive from us. If you choose to register on www.sefcu.com to take advantage of any optional services via our website, such as stock tracking or other services, cookies may be used to help us identify items of interest to you and allow us to notify you of special events, products, and services that match your interests.
Cookies and SEFCU OnLine – When you enter your User ID information, your Internet banking session is tracked by the use of “cookies” until you exit SEFCU OnLine. All cookies related to your OnLine transaction are returned to the server and do not stay resident on your PC. That means that once you end your connection to SEFCU OnLine, the cookies are removed from your PC.
Cookies and SEFCU OnLine - Enhanced Security Login – When you add extra security to your computer by enabling the Enhanced Security Login, a secure cookie, which is separate and distinct from the cookies described above, will be placed on your computer. This cookie is only used by SEFCU to recognize you as an authorized user; it does not contain any personal information.
Security and Electronic Access – Because we know that you value the confidentiality of your personal and financial information, SEFCU and its service providers use security software that encrypts the information you send us. When you use SEFCU OnLine, only information relative to logging in will be requested. In order to conduct business via SEFCU OnLine, you must access your accounts with a password (also known as your Personal Identification Number or PIN). Since this number is a critical security component, it is essential that you protect your password from unauthorized use. It is also advisable to log off of SEFCU OnLine as soon as you complete your transactions to avoid any other person from accessing your account. Should you forget to log off of our SEFCU OnLine service, our system is designed to automatically end your session as an added protection for you. Loan applications you complete on sefcu.com are encrypted to protect your privacy.
When contacting SEFCU via e-mail, it is important to note that only the secure e-mail available via SEFCU OnLine is encrypted. To protect your privacy, it is advisable not to include any confidential information sent via standard e-mail channels (such as contact with us via email@example.com).
