7. Online Security
Our Credit Union is constantly concerned about our member’s critical information and privacy. With this in mind, we have the following security services installed on our Internet server:

  • Each server is behind a Firewall. This UNIX based hardware product blocks critical ports and IP addresses on servers from external attack and access.
  • Each server runs proprietary software that constantly monitors the servers for unauthorized use and attempts to "hack" into information. Administrators are contact when forced attacks are committed, and countermeasures can be applied to stop these instances.
  • All administrative activity requires user login and authentication. All administrative updates are logged into files that can be reviewed later.
  • All servers come with a Global Verisign Certificate (RSA) for digitally encrypted communications between the Web server and your member. Information passed in applications cannot be decrypted by third parties attempting to "pick" information being passed across the Internet backbone.
  • All servers run the latest version of Apache Web Server, considered the strongest and most secure Web server software on the market.

8. How to Protect Your Personally Identifiable Information
You have a role in helping us by safeguarding your information from others. You have several options when deciding how you can best protect your personally identifiable information. One option is simply not to volunteer it. The Federal Trade Commission's websites (www.ftc.gov, www.ftc.gov/idtheft, and www.onguardonline.gov) offer useful information about how to protect your personally identifiable information.

9. Suspicious E-Mail
We will never e-mail you to request personal account information over the Internet or by any other means. Help protect yourself against online fraud - if you suspect that an unsolicited e-mail is fraudulent, please contact us.
