FACTS WHAT DOES MECU DO WITH YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION?
Why? Financial companies choose how they share your personal information. Federal law gives consumers the right to limit some but not all sharing.

What we do
How does MECU 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, secured files and buildings, procedural safeguards and safe record storage. We will continue to review and modify our security controls in the future to deal with changes in products, services and technology.

How does MECU collect my personal information? We collect your personal information, for example, when you
  • open an account
  • apply for a loan
  • use your credit or debit card
  • 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:
  • 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.
