When you visit the Credit Union Foundation website, you may provide us with two types of information: (1) personal information that you knowingly choose to disclose, which is collected on an individual basis and (2) general user information that does not contain personally identifiable information, which is collected on an aggregate basis as you browse the website. In some cases, if you choose not to provide us with the requested information, you may not be able to access all of our website’s contents and services.
Personally identifiable you choose to provide:
We may ask for certain personal information from you for the purpose of providing to you content and/or services that you request. You may provide us with details about yourself so that we can send you information about our products and services, and subscribe to our email newsletter. If you wish to purchase our products or services through this website, you may need to provide us with information so that we can complete that transaction, including your credit /debit card information. You may be asked to disclose personal information to us so that we can provide assistance and information to you. For example, we may collect personal information from you (such as an e-mail address, system information and problem descriptions) in order to provide online technical support and troubleshooting.
Non-personally identifiable information we collect:
Cookies/web server logs: as with other similar websites, our website uses standard technology called ‘cookies’ and web server logs to collect information about how our webs site is used. Cookies are a feature of web browser software that allows web servers to recognise the computer used to access a website. Cookies are small pieces of data that are stored by a user’s web browser on the user’s hard drive. Information gathered through cookies and web server logs may include the date and time of visits, the pages viewed, time spent at our website and the websites visited just before and just after our website. This information is collected on an aggregate basis. None of this information is associated with you as an individual. You can, of course, disable cookies on your computer by indicating this in the preference or options menus in your browser. Most browsers allow you to reject all cookies, whilst some browsers allow you to reject just third party cookies. For example, in Internet Explorer you can refuse all cookies by clicking “Tools”, “Internet Options”, “Privacy”, and selecting “Block all cookies” using the sliding selector. Blocking all cookies will, however, have a negative impact upon the usability of many websites, including this one.

Changes to our Policies
If you have any questions or comments, please contact us in writing or by telephone through one of the methods given in the ‘How to contact us’ section below. We are committed to working to resolve quickly and fairly, any complaints you may have about privacy.
Reasonable steps will be taken to maintain the security of the personally identifiable information that we collect. However, no system and no data transmission over the internet can be guaranteed to be completely secure. Accordingly we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you provide us and do so at your own risk.
We may provide access to your personally identifiable information when legally required to do so, to cooperate with police investigations or other legal proceedings, to limit our liability to protect our rights, or to protect the rights and safety of the public. In those instances, the information is provided only for that limited purpose.
