You Have The Right To Choose
Under certain circumstances, federal laws give you the right to instruct financial companies not to share some of your information. This is referred to as "opting out" of information sharing. The laws also permit financial companies to share certain information about you without permitting you to opt out. Generally, this type of information sharing is necessary for normal business such as maintaining your accounts, complying with your requests and offering you additional products or services. Fortunately, ABCO Federal Credit Union affiliates only share information with third parties for normal business reasons. You may not be able to "opt out" of any of our information sharing activities.
Despite our limited sharing practices, non-affiliated third parties can still obtain information about you from consumer reporting agencies and other outside sources to market their own products and services.
If you wish to limit their ability to obtain and use your information with third parties in connection with pre-approvals for credit. You may also choose to send your request to be added to the OPT OUT list by mail. For the addresses of the credit reporting agencies, click here.
