The beginning of the year is a time of resolutions and renewal. Even if you're not the kind of person who hits the gym with renewed vigor come January, getting those post-holiday credit card statements can get your heart racing. That's why the beginning of the year is a great time to check in on your financial standing, make sure you weren't the victim of holiday fraud and ensure that your credit is in good shape.
There's no time like the present to get a copy of your credit report and go over it with a fine-toothed comb. It'll help you keep on top of your finances, let you know if you should refinance your debt at a lower interest rate and give you an idea of how to use your upcoming tax refund (if you're getting one) this year.
Why? Financial companies choose how they share your 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 information. Please read this notice carefully to understand what we do.
What? The types of personal information that we collect and share depend on the product or service that you have with us. This information can include: (1) name and address; (2) Social Security number and income; (3) types of accounts that you have with us; (4) account balances and payment history; and (5) credit history.
How? All credit unions need to share members' personal information to run their everyday business - to process transactions, maintain accounts, and report to credit bureaus. Below, we list the reasons that Market USA chooses to share and whether or not you can limit this sharing.
HOW TO LIMIT INFORMATION SHARING
You can contact us at any time to limit our sharing. To opt out of ALL marketing, please contact us as follows:
How does Market USA 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 Market USA collect my information? We collect information about you from the following sources: (1) information that we receive from you on applications or other forms; (2) information about your transactions with us; (3) information about your transactions with nonaffiliated third parties; and (4) information from a consumer reporting agency.
Why can't I opt-out of all sharing? Federal Law gives you the right to limit sharing only for: (1) sharing with affiliates for everyday business practices; (2) sharing with affiliates that market to you; and (3) sharing with non-affiliates to market to you. Market USA allows you to opt out of all marketing by following the instructions outlined above.
What happens when I opt-out of sharing for an account I hold jointly with someone else? Your choices will apply to everyone on the account.
Affiliate: Financial or non-financial companies related by common ownership or control.
Non-affiliates: Financial or non-financial companies not related by common ownership or control.
Joint Marketing: A formal agreement between nonaffiliated financial companies that together market financial products and services to you.
