Online Privacy Policy

First Source Federal Credit Union recognizes that a key concern of our Members is the use of their information once it has been collected and the original transaction completed. Our Credit Union's Privacy Notice is located here.

We do not knowingly market to or solicit information from children under 13 without parental consent.

Our Credit Union uses the information only to the extent necessary to carry out our daily business activities and to provide services and other opportunities of interest to our Members.

We are committed to providing you with competitive products and services to meet your financial needs, which necessitates that we share information about you to complete your transactions and to provide you with certain financial opportunities. In order to do so, we have entered into agreements with other companies that provide either services or additional financial products to us for you to consider.

Under these arrangements, we may disclose all of the information we collect, as described below, to companies that perform marketing and other services on our behalf or to other financial institutions with whom we have a joint marketing agreement. To protect our Members' privacy, we will partner only with companies that follow strict confidentiality requirements and limit the use of information we provide. We do not permit these companies to sell to other third parties the information we provide to them.

We highly value the privacy of your financial and personal information. If you have any questions, please contact us at (315) 735-8571 or 1-800-735-8571.

Looking Out for Children

We do not knowingly market to or solicit information from children under 13 without parental consent. We recognize that protecting children's identities and privacy online is important, and that the responsibility to do so rests with both the online industry and with parents. While First Source works to protect your personal information, you also have responsibility.

  • Internet safety for children. The Internet is a public network. Children's access to the Internet can allow them to visit inappropriate websites and be exposed to unwanted risks. COPPA, the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act, protects children under the age of 13 from the online collection of personal information. Learn more about COPPA on the Federal Trade Commission's website. Parents can be proactive by installing filtering software that gives them more control over their family's Internet experience.

We recommend that minors ask their parents for permission before sending any information about themselves to anyone over the Internet.

Transmission of online applications is encrypted using PGP Encryption software. First Source FCU may use feedback from visitors that is received via email from our site to respond to inquiries, comments, or suggestions.
