Keeping your personal information safe is our priority. View our policies to find out how we collect, use, share, and protect information about you.
What does Altra do with your personal information?
Financial companies choose how they share your personal 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 personal information. Please read this notice carefully to understand what we do.
The types of personal information we collect and share depend on the product or service you have with us. This information can include: Social Security number and account balances, credit history and credit scores, and income and payment history. When you are no longer our member, we continue to share your information as described in this notice.
All financial companies need to share members’ personal information to run their everyday business. In the section below, we list the reasons financial companies can share their members’ personal information; the reasons Altra Federal Credit Union chooses to share; and whether you can limit this sharing.
