Privacy Policy



Financial companies choose how they share your personal information. Federal law gives consumers the right to limit some but not all sharing. Federal law also requires us to tell you how we collect, share, and protect your personal information. Please read this notice carefully to understand what we do.


The types of personal information we collect and share depend on the product or service you have with us. This information can include:

  • Name and address, Social Security numbers, Account number(s) and transactions, advances and account history.
  • Information to process transactions on your behalf, conduct the operations of the credit union, and to provide you with certain financial services and opportunities.


All financial companies need to share certain personal information to run their everyday business. In the section below, we list the reasons financial companies (including CES Credit Union) can share their members’ personal information; the reasons CES Credit Union chooses to share; and whether you can limit this sharing.

Employees and Confidentiality

CES Credit Union, Inc. restricts access to nonpublic personal information about you to only those employees who have a specific business purpose for using it. Our employees are trained on the importance of maintaining confidentiality and member privacy. We maintain electronic and physical safeguards that comply with federal regulations and leading industry practices to safeguard your nonpublic personal information.

What Members Can Do to Help?

CES Credit Union is committed to protecting the privacy of its members. Members can help by following these simple guidelines:

  • Protect your account numbers, plastic card numbers, PINs (personal identification numbers), or passwords. Never keep your PIN with your card, which can provide free access to your accounts if your card is lost or stolen. Choose your PIN carefully, and avoid using a PIN related to your address, DOB, telephone number or SSN.
  • Use caution when disclosing your account numbers, social security numbers, etc. to other persons. If someone calls or texts you explaining the call is on behalf of the Credit Union and asks for your account number, you should beware. Official Credit Union staff will have access to your information and will not need to ask for it.
  • Keep your information with us current. If your address or phone number changes, please let us know. It is important that we have current information on how to reach you quickly. If we detect potentially fraudulent or unauthorized activity or use of an account, we will attempt to contact you immediately (but we will not be asking for your card or account information).
  • If you will be traveling for an extended period, or traveling out- of-state or out-of-country, please let us know. This may help explain unusual or out-of-the-ordinary transactions on your account or card with us.
  • Occasionally, our fraud detection service may call you regarding a specific transaction where your card was used. You may be asked to confirm a merchant/vendor and transaction dollar amount (ie “ABC Airlines for $488.66”) to determine if the transaction is a valid one. But again, you will not be asked to give specific account or card information.
  • Let us know if you have questions. Please remember to not give any personal information to anyone you question has a legitimate reason to obtain that information. Call us on our published number if you are unsure.

We do not knowingly solicit or collect data from children and we do not knowingly market any service or product to children online.
