What Does Holyoke Credit Union Do With Your Personal Information?

Financial companies choose how they share your personal information. Federal law gives consumers the right to limit some, but not all, sharing. Federal law also requires us to tell you how we collect, share, and protect your personal information. Please read this notice carefully to understand what we do.

The type of personal information we collect and share depends on the product or service you have with us. This information can include:

All financial companies need to share personal information to run their everyday business. In the section below, we list the reasons financial companies can share personal information; the reasons Holyoke Credit Union chooses to share; and whether you can limit this sharing.

Reasons we can share your personal information:

How does Holyoke Credit Union protect my personal information?

To protect your personal information from unauthorized access and use, we use security measures that comply with federal law. These measures include computer safeguards and secured files and buildings.

- Open an account or make deposits or withdrawals

- Apply for a loan or give us your income information

We also collect your personal information from others, such as credit bureaus, affiliates, or other companies.

Why can't I limit all sharing?

Federal law gives you the right to limit only:

- sharing for affiliates’ everyday business purposes – information about your creditworthiness

- affiliates from using your information to market to you

- sharing for non-affiliates to market to you

State laws and individual companies may give you additional rights to limit sharing.
