Privacy Policy

Virginia Educators Credit Union respects our members' rights to privacy. Therefore, we feel that it's our obligation support and clearly state this privacy policy to all site visitors.

VECU collects standard non-identifying information about visits to our site such as time and date visited, IP address, and country of origin. This information is used to compile standard statistics on site use.

Our site uses a form for members to request information on products and services, and an online loan application. Both of these forms collect visitors contact information (such as e-mail address), unique identifiers (such as social security number) and some financial information (such as account numbers). This information is used to contact the requestor when necessary. The unique identifiers and any financial information are used to check a user's qualifications, the same as if the visitor had come into one of our offices.

Any online information transmitted is sent via a 128 bit encryption to ensure privacy of your personal data. We use secure servers for all forms, applications, and your account information. Employees with access to personal information are required by credit union bylaws to maintain the confidentiality of any information transmitted.

Our Education Corner pages do not collect any online information. We do not try to entice members by the prospect of a special game, prize or other activity to persuade the member to divulge information.

This site does contain links to other sites. VECU does not assume any responsibility for the privacy policies or the content of such web sites. No personal information is sold or transferred to these or other parties. However, we may, from time to time, provide visitors with information on special loan or savings promotions.

If you have any questions about this policy statement, practices of this site, or about any dealings with this site, please contact us using our secure online form or U.S. Mail: Webmaster, Virginia Educators Credit Union, 12626 Nettles Dr., Newport News, VA 23606
