What does the Eastern Michigan University 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.

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

  • Social Security number and income
  • Account balances and payment history
  • Credit history and credit score

All financial companies need to share members’ personal information to run their everyday business.

How does EMUCU 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.

How does EMUCU collect my personal information?

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

  • Open an account
  • Pay your bills or apply for a loan
  • Use your credit or debit card

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’ every day business purposes – information about your credit worthiness
  • 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.

What happens when I limit my sharing for an account I hold jointly with someone else?

Your choices will apply to everyone on your account.

Affiliates: Companies related by common ownership or control. They can be financial and non-financial companies. EMUCU has no affiliates.

Non-affiliates: Companies not related by common ownership or control. They can be financial or non-financial companies. EMUCU does not share with non-affiliates so they can market to you.

Joint Marketing: A formal agreement between non-affiliated financial companies that together market financial products or services to you. Our joint marketing partners include categories of companies such as financial service providers and insurance companies.
