What does Greater Iowa Credit Union do with your personal information?


Financial companies choose how they share your personal information. Federal law gives consumers the right to limit some but not all sharing.

How does Greater Iowa Credit Union protect my personal information?

To protect your personal information from unauthorized access and use, we use security measures that comply with federal law.

How does Greater Iowa Credit Union collect my personal information? 

We collect your personal information, for example, when you

  • open an account or apply for a loan
  • use your credit or debit card or make a wire transfer
  • make deposits or withdrawals from your accounts.

We also collect your personal information from others, such as credit bureaus, affiliates, 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 nonaffiliates to market to you

State laws and individual companies may give you additional rights to limit sharing. 

What happens when I limit sharing for an account I hold jointly with someone else? 

Your choices will apply to everyone on your account.
