ONLINE PRIVACY & SECURITY
USA Patriot Act
To help the government fight the funding of terrorism and money-laundering activities, federal law requires all financial institutions to obtain, verify, and record information that identifies each person who opens an account.What this means for you: When you open an account, we will ask for your name, address, date of birth, and other information that will allow us to identify you. We may also ask to see your driver’s license or other identifying documents.
The Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act
(COPPA) was passed by Congress in October 1998, with a requirement that the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) issue and enforce rules concerning children’s online privacy. The primary goal of the Act and the Rule is to place parents in control over what information is collected from their children online. Public Service Credit Union does not knowingly collect, nor is our web site designed or directed to use personal information from children under the age of 13 without containing verifiable consent from their parents.
Third Party Websites
Public Service Credit Union hosts several links to third party vendors on their website in hopes of providing quick and easy access to information related to your financial needs. Please keep in mind the following statements when accessing third party vendors:
-The member is leaving the credit union’s website
-The member is linking to an alternate website not operated by the credit union
-The credit union is not responsible for the content of the alternate website
-The credit union does not represent either the third party or the member if the two enter into a transaction
-Privacy and security policies may differ from those practiced by the credit union

Scope and Overview
This policy outlines how Public Service Credit Union, its vendors, and/or the licensor of the Public Service Credit Union’s consumer verification software processes biometric data collected from you for identity verification and fraud prevention purposes.
Biometric Data Defined
As used in this policy, biometric data includes “biometric identifiers” and “biometric information”. “Biometric identifier” means a retina or iris scan, fingerprint, voiceprint, or scan of hand or face geometry. As the term is used in this policy, the selfie photograph you upload to the software for use in the biometric algorithm is considered a “biometric identifier.” “Biometric information” means any information, regardless of how it is captured, converted, stored, or shared, based on an individual’s biometric identifier used to identify an individual.
Disclosure and Authorization Policy
To the extent that Public Service Credit Union, its vendors, and/or the licensor of the Public Service Credit Union’s consumer verification software collect, capture, or otherwise obtain biometric data relating to a consumer, Public Service Credit Union must first:
Inform each consumer that Public Service Credit Union, its vendors, and/or the licensor of the Public Service Credit Union’s consumer verification software are collecting, capturing, or otherwise obtaining the employee’s biometric data, and that the Public Service Credit Union is providing such biometric data to its vendors and the licensor of the Public Service Credit Union’s consumer verification software;
Inform the consumer of the specific purpose and length of time for which the consumer’s biometric data is being collected, stored, and used; and
Receive consent by the consumer authorizing Public Service Credit Union, its vendors, and/or Public Service Credit Union’s consumer verification software to collect, store, and use the consumer’s biometric data for the specific purposes disclosed by the Public Service Credit Union, and for Public Service Credit Union to provide such biometric data to its vendors and the licensor of the Public Service Credit Union’s consumer verification software.
Public Service Credit Union, its vendors, and/or the licensor of the Public Service Credit Union’s consumer verification software will not sell, lease, trade, or otherwise profit from employees’ biometric data; provided, however, that the Public Service Credit Union’s vendors and the licensor of the Public Service Credit Union’s consumer verification software may be paid for products or services used by Public Service Credit Union that utilize such biometric data.
This policy is intended to comply with all federal, state, and local laws.
Purpose for the Collection of Biometric Data
Public Service Credit Union, its vendors, and/or the licensor of Public Service Credit Union’s consumer verification software collect, store, and use biometric data solely for identity verification and fraud prevention purposes.
Public Service Credit Union will not disclose or disseminate any biometric data to anyone other than its vendors and the licensor of the Public Service Credit Union’s consumer verification software providing products and services using biometric data without/unless:
First obtaining consumer consent to such disclosure or dissemination;
The disclosed data completes a financial transaction requested or authorized by the consumer;
Disclosure is required by law or ordinance; or
Disclosure is required pursuant to a valid warrant or subpoena issued by a court of competent jurisdiction.
Public Service Credit Union shall use a commercially reasonable standard of care to store, transmit and protect from disclosure any biometric data collected. Such storage, transmission, and protection from disclosure shall be performed in a manner that is the same as or more protective than the manner in which Public Service Credit Union stores, transmits and protects from disclosure other confidential and sensitive information, including personal information that can be used to uniquely identify an individual or an individual’s account or property, such as genetic markers, genetic testing information, account numbers, PINs, driver’s license numbers and social security numbers.
Public Service Credit Union shall retain consumer biometric data only until, and shall request that its vendors and the licensor of Public Service Credit Union’s consumer verification software permanently destroy such data when, the first of the following occurs:
The initial purpose for collecting or obtaining such biometric data has been satisfied, such as verification of consumer identity;
Request of consumer to destroy the biometric data; or
Within 30 days of consumer’s provisioning of biometric data.
If you have any questions about our use, storage, or security of your biometric data you can contact us at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
