WHAT WE DO

HOW DOES KPCU 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. We also restrict access to nonpublic personal information about you to those employees and volunteers who need to know the information to provide products or services to you.

HOW DOES KPCU COLLECT MY PERSONAL INFORMATION?

We collect your personal information, for example, when you:

  • Use your credit or debit card or pay your bills
  • Make deposits to or withdrawals from your accounts

We also collect your personal information from others, including credit bureaus or other companies.

WHY CAN’T I LIMIT ALL SHARING?

Federal law only gives you the right to limit information sharing as follows:

  • Sharing for affiliates’ everyday business purposes – information about your creditworthiness
  • Affiliates from using your information to market to you
  • Sharing for nonaffiliates to market to you

However, we do not have any affiliates with whom we share any information. State laws and individual companies may give you additional rights to limit sharing.
