United Advantage NW FCU Policy:
In keeping with its mission as a not for profit financial institution, the credit union only shares information with the ultimate goal of bringing you greater convenience and more choices. United Advantage NW FCU will not sell information for indiscriminate use for profit.
Personal financial information such as your account balance or loan information will never be shared except: (1) when necessary to complete a transaction, (2) when a third party is verifying the existence or condition of your account in accordance with applicable laws, (3) when such disclosure is in compliance with the law, government agencies or court orders, (4) when you give us your written permission, or (5) to protect secured assets or the assets of the credit union. Information shared with affiliates will be limited to contact information such as your name and address; information obtained from outside sources (such as a credit bureau) will never be released by the credit union. The credit union strives to assure that all affiliates maintain privacy standards comparable to our own; therefore, before sharing any information with an affiliate, the credit union will first obtain a written confidentiality statement from the affiliate.
The credit union will not intentionally release any account information on accounts owned by minor members.
The credit union will not release confidential member information to agents of the state or federal government, except as required by law or under appropriate legal writ.
United Advantage NW FCU is committed to providing you with financial products and services to reach your financial goals. We are equally committed to protecting our members privacy.
Information we collect and disclose about you:
In order to conduct the business of the credit union, we may disclose non-public information about you as permitted or required by law. These disclosures typically include information to process transactions on your behalf, conduct the operations of the credit union, and follow your instructions as you authorize or protect the security of our financial records. If you terminate your membership with UANW FCU we will not share the information we have collected about you, except where permitted or required by law.
We may disclose all the information we collect, as described previously to companies that perform marketing services on our behalf or to other institutions with whom we have joint marketing agreements. To protect your privacy, we only work with companies that agree to maintain strong confidentiality protections and limit the use of information we provide.
We do not permit these firms to sell the information we provide to other third parties. Under no circumstances will UANW FCU provide or sell ANY information to nonaffiliated third parties who would then have unrestricted use of your account information.

We restrict access to non-public personal information about you to those employees who have a specific business purpose in utilizing your data. Our employees are trained in the importance of maintaining confidentiality and member privacy.
We maintain physical , electronic and procedural safeguards that comply with Federal regulations and leading industry practices to safeguard your non-public personal information.
