The Iowa Credit Union Foundation (ICUF) created this statement to communicate our firm commitment to privacy. We take the proper measures to ensure that your shopping experience with us is safe, secure and enjoyable. This statement details our current information gathering and sharing practices for the ICUF website.
Information We Collect and How We Use It
When you make a donation, we will need to collect your name, e-mail address, mailing address, credit card number and credit card expiration date. This information allows us to process your order and contact you if necessary. Information you provide to us for the purposes of making donations is protected in conformance with industry standards.
Information about your activity on the site is automatically collected when you sign in. We use this information to enhance and personalize your donation. We monitor our site-traffic patterns and site usage to better understand our members and donors and improve the layout and design of our site. We use the information to notify you of any site changes, new features and services and to keep you informed of any promotions or events offered by ICUF and its affiliates.
We may provide your information as required by law or legal process; to protect and defend the rights of ICUF, the IowaCreditUnionFoundation.org site or its users; incident to a corporate sale, merger, reorganization, dissolution or similar event; and under circumstances we believe reasonably necessary to protect the personal safety of users of ICUF, this site or the public.
Links to External Sites
Our site may contain links to other sites on the Internet that are not under our control. IowaCreditUnionFoundation.org is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of such websites.
A cookie is a small piece of information that many websites use to help make donating online easier. The information is stored on your computer's hard drive. It lets you donate to our site and return several days later without having to re-enter the information. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies. Browsers usually provide the option to disable this feature.
Our site has security measures in place to protect the loss, misuse and alteration of the information under our control. All information is stored on a secure server that is not accessible through the Internet.
We strive to maintain the reliability, accuracy, completeness and currency of personal data in our databases and to protect the privacy and security of our databases. Although we cannot guarantee against any loss, misuse, unauthorized disclosure, alteration or destruction of data, we try to prevent such unfortunate occurrences.
Choosing a Personal Password
When you create an account, you need to select a personal password that you will remember. It must be at least six (6) characters. To maximize your level of protection, you should choose a combination of both letters and numbers.
Secure and Standard Account Sign In
Some older browser versions and some firewalls don't permit communication through secure servers. In that case, you'll be unable to securely connect to our server. You may choose to connect to the secure server via our standard servers, but your password will not be encrypted. If you have already securely saved billing information to your account, you can still donate securely using your saved information. If you submit new information via standard servers, it will not be encrypted.
Safe Donating Policy
Because your credit card security is a high priority, we have taken numerous steps to ensure that your payment information is processed confidentially, accurately and securely. IowaCreditUnionFoundation.org uses Secure Sockets Layer (SSL), an encryption technology that protects your credit card information. SSL encrypts all ordering information (name, address, credit card number) so no one can read it as it travels over the Internet.
At IowaCreditUnionFoundation.org, the safety of children is very important to us. We are committed to protecting the online privacy of children. We will not knowingly or intentionally collect personal information about children under the age of 13 without prior parental consent. If you are under 13 and would like to make a donation on IowaCreditUnionFoundation.org or provide personal information about yourself and your family, please ask a parent or guardian for assistance.
IowaCreditUnionFoundation.org cannot prohibit minors from visiting this site. ICUF must rely on parents, guardians and those responsible for supervising children under the age of 13 to decide if donating is appropriate for such children to make.
Each time you make a donation to IowaCreditUnionFoundation.org or provide information about yourself or your family, you are representing to IowaCreditUnionFoundation.org that you are 13 years or older.
