Marin County Federal Credit Union Privacy Policies
Important Privacy Choices for California Consumers.
You have the right to restrict the sharing of personal and financial information with outside companies that we do business with. Nothing in this form prohibits the sharing of information necessary for us to follow the law, as permitted by law, or to give you the best service on your accounts with us. This includes sending you information about some other products or services.
Federal Privacy Disclosure
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
U.S. Patriot Act Disclosure
Effective October 1, 2003
In accordance with section 326 of the USA Patriot Act, Marin County Federal Credit Union is required by Federal law to obtain, verify, and record information that identifies each person who opens an account or is being added as a signatory to a new or existing account. In some cases, identification will be requested for those banking with us prior to the effective date of the customer identification requirements because original documentation was not obtained with the opening of the accounts.
What this means for you:
When you open an account or are going to be added as a signatory to an account, we will ask for you name, address, date of birth, and other information that will allow us to identify you. We may also ask to see your driver’s license or other identifying documents.
In all cases, protection of our member’s identity and confidentiality is the Credit Union’s pledge to you.

Warning: Marin County Federal Credit Union will never request you to send personal information via email or telephone text messages. If you encounter a suspicious email, website or text that states it is from Marin County Federal CU, do not respond to it. Please contact Marin County Federal CU to report the suspicious activity.

The "s" indicates "secured" and means the web page uses encryption.
