What We Do
How does Credit Union of Atlanta 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 data encryption, computer safeguards and secured files and buildings. We take technical and organizational measures to secure, administer and store your personal information to protect against loss, misuse and unauthorized access.

  • open an account or apply for a loan
  • use your credit or debit card or make a wire transfer

Why can't I limit all sharing?

Federal law gives you the right to limit only:

  • sharing for affiliates’ everyday business purposes—information about your creditworthiness
  • affiliates from using your information to market to you
  • sharing for nonaffiliates to market to you

State laws and individual companies may give you additional rights to limit sharing.
