On-line Privacy Statement
Children’s Privacy Act:
The online financial services offered through the Credit Union’s Website are not designated for or directed toward children under age 13. We do not knowingly solicit or collect data from children, and we do no knowingly market to children online without express parental consent or notification. If we receive online information from anyone that we know to be a child, we will only use the information to respond directly to a child’s request.
We recognize that protecting children’s identities and online privacy is important and that responsibility rest with us and with the parents. If any member believes their child has provided personally identifiable information to us, they must contact us so that we can allow them the opportunity to review and delete such information.
Our goal at Gulf Coast Educators Federal Credit Union is to provide its members with the convenience of Internet delivery channels and to maintain the privacy of their confidential information. GCEFCU’s Internet Account Access and Bill Payer Service uses industry standard security features as outlined below to assure the confidentiality of this information
- GCEFCU’s Internet Account Access uses secure communication. Internet Account Access will only allow browsers that support Secure Socket Layers (SSL). SSL ensures that electronic data communicated between your browser and GCEFCU sites cannot be read by third parties even if the data is intercepted. GCEFCU requires that you use a browser with 128 bit encryption.
- Internet Account Access also requires that you enter a Personal Identification Number (PIN) to verify your identity. In addition to the PIN verification, Internet Account Access will verify additional identifying information prior to processing your request.
- GCEFCU’s Internet Account Access has a timer that will end your session if you do not interact with the site for a predefined period of time.
- GCEFCU’s Internet Account Access uses a state of the art firewall to secure information of member data stored in our systems from penetration by unauthorized parties. The firewall serves as a control point to stop invasive data from entering our systems and assuring that only authorized data leaves our systems.
