Privacy Policy – We are dedicated to protecting your personal information and maintaining your trust in us.

Online Privacy Policy – While our privacy policies are the same whether you are online or not, we have extra measures in place to protect your privacy when you bank online with WSSC Federal Credit Union.

Website Privacy

As a general policy, we do not automatically collect personal information from our website users. We do collect and store information on the domain used to access our website, the Internet address of the website from which a user links to the Credit Union’s website and the date and time of the visit to our website. This information is used only to measure the number of visitors to our website and the route a user travels while within the Credit Union’s website to better serve users in improved design and site navigation.

Online Banking

Personal identification, such as your account number and password, is collected when a valid Credit Union member with active Credit Union account(s) enters the secure online banking area of the Credit Union’s website. This information enables the Credit Union to regulate access of this information to those who request such access and those entitled to perform transactions on these
account(s).

Cookies

Our website may use cookies (small pieces of information sent by our web server to a visitor’s web browser that reminds our site about the user the next time he or she visits). We do not store confidential or sensitive information in cookies. We use cookies only to enhance a member’s online banking session and ease navigation through our website.

For certain applications, such as online banking, cookies are required to help protect the privacy of a member’s transactions by, for example, automatically terminating the online session if the member forgets to log out. Cookies cannot be used to capture a user’s email address, obtain data from the user’s hard drive or gain confidential or sensitive information about the user. Additionally, cookies cannot be read by a website other than the one that set the cookie. Some websites, however, use cookies to obtain information from the user’s browser. The user has the option to set his or her browser to notify before accepting a cookie to control whether a cookie is accepted or rejected.

Online Forms

WSSC Federal Credit Union provides several online forms (for example, loan application or check order) to better serve the needs of members. Personal information provided via any Credit Union online form is used only to process the member’s request for service. These forms are transmitted via secured means. However, if the user is concerned about the security of transmitting this information via the Internet, the member is encouraged to contact the Credit Union directly at 301-206-8111 or 1-800-828-6439 ext 8111 to transmit the information another way.

Email Communication

We may use personal information you transmit to us to respond to inquiries for service or information, or improve the service the Credit Union provides. Since email communication may not be secure against interception by unauthorized individuals, users may want to seek alternatives to email when it is necessary to provide sensitive or personal information.

WSSC Federal Credit Union will not transmit sensitive or personal information that can compromise or violate a user’s privacy when communicating via email.
