Website Privacy and Security Policy
As a member of America’s First Network Credit Union, you don’t have to worry about the security of your personal information. Just like you, we want all your personal information kept that way – personal and private.
When you give us information about yourself over our website, we use it to verify who you are, to keep your account with us secure, and to complete your transactions or business. Your personal information is private and we respect your privacy. The information you give us, stays with us. We never give your e-mail address to anyone and we won’t send you unsolicited e-mail. If we want to use your comments or correspondence, we’ll ask you first.
At America’s First Network Credit Union, your personal and account information is secure and private – always.
Internet Account Access Security
What kind of security is being used for Internet Account Access? America’s First Network Credit Union uses the latest technology to protect your account information from exposure to unauthorized persons. Below are some of the components of this security system:
- An account number and PIN are required to access the system.
- 128-bit encryption scrambles your transmissions when crossing the Internet.
- After entering a PIN incorrectly three times, access to an account is blocked.
- VeriSign, the recognized leader in Internet Security, allows you to see the security features of our Internet Account Access program before you use it.
You are responsible for protecting the secrecy of your PIN in accordance with the terms contained in your Membership Account Agreement. We recommend you not store secured pages in your cache or leave your computer unattended while you are logged into our FlexTeller Internet Account Access.
What is Encryption?
Encryption takes meaningful text and numbers and scrambles them into numerical nonsense before transmitting them across the Internet. Your account information becomes “all mixed up and nonsense” when encryption is in place. The encryption process occurs for information going in both directions – from your computer to the credit union and vice versa.
