What does Western Cooperative Credit Union do with your Personal Information?


Financial companies choose how they share your personal information. Federal and state law gives consumers the right to limit some but not all sharing. Federal and state 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 services you have with us. This information can include:

How does WCCU 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 computer safeguards and secured files and buildings.

WCCU regularly tests and assesses its information security measures, systematically trains employees, and adopts upgrades and enhancements as necessary to protect your information. We limit access to information to those employees for whom access is appropriate.

How does WCCU collect my personal information? We collect your personal information, for example,
  • When you open an account or deposit money
  • When you pay your bills or apply for a loan
  • When you use your debit card
We also collect your personal information from others, such as credit bureaus or other companies.
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 non-affiliates to market to you
North Dakota State law and individual companies may give you additional rights to limit sharing. (See more below on your rights under state law.)
What happens when I limit sharing for an account I hold jointly with someone else? Your choices will apply to everyone on your account.
