What You Can Do to Help Protect Your Privacy

Fulton Teachers' Credit Union is committed to protecting the privacy of its members. Members can help by following these simple guidelines:

  • Protect your account numbers, card numbers, PIN (personal identification numbers) and passwords. Never keep your PIN with your debit or credit card which can provide free access to your accounts if your card is lost or stolen.
  • Use caution when disclosing your account numbers, social security numbers, etc. to other persons.
  • Keep your information with us current. It is important that we have current information no how to reach you. If we detect potentially fraudulent or unauthorized activity or use of an account, we will attempt to contact you immediately. If your address or phone number changes, please let us know.

What We Do To Protect the Confidentiality and Integrity of Non-Public Personal Information

We restrict employee access to personal information to a "need to know" basis. Only employees who legitimately require your personal data to complete a business transaction ever see it. We strictly enforce procedures that prevent unauthorized access to your data. We require all organizations to which we provide data as permitted by law, to have similar privacy safeguards to further ensure your confidentiality.

If you ever have questions or concerns about the integrity of your account information, please contact us.
