Protecting Your Privacy

Protecting the personal information we collect and maintain is as important to us as it is to you. Like any organization, we require a certain amount of personal information to conduct business and provide you with the products and services you want and need. At the same time, you have the right to know that your privacy is being respected and that your confidential information is collected, used and protected appropriately.

Privacy Statement

Canada is part of a global economy based on the creation, processing, and exchange of information. The technology underlying the information economy provides a number of benefits that improve the quality of the protection of privacy rights and the individual’s right to control the use and exchange of personal information.

The Swan Valley Credit Union is a member-owned and controlled financial institution and, as such, has an inherent responsibility to be open and accessible while, at the same time, demonstrating the greatest respect for protection of the member’s personal privacy. In adopting this Credit Union Code for the Protection of Personal Information, what has been accepted practice becomes a documented commitment to the member.

Protecting the personal information we collect and maintain is as important to us as it is to you. Like any organization, we require a certain amount of personal information to conduct business and provide you with the products and services you want and need. At the same time, you have the right to know that your privacy is being respected and that your confidential information is collected, used and protected appropriately.

The product or service we are providing you, requires your name, address and some identification. We only collect the information we need and only use it for the purpose explained to you.

You can withdraw your consent for promotional material at any time. If you wish to withdraw or partially withdraw your consent, please complete the attached form and submit to the SVCU. Please note that a reasonable time period may be required to process your Withdrawal of Consent.
