Facts: What does Randolph-Brooks Federal Credit Union (RBFCU) 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. 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 products or services you have with us. This information can include:
- Social Security number and income
- Account balances and payment history
- Credit history and credit scores
All financial companies need to share members’ personal information to run their everyday business. In the section below, we list the reasons financial companies can share their members’ personal information; the reasons RBFCU chooses to share; and whether you can limit this sharing.
To limit our sharing
- Call (toll-free) 1-800-580-3300 and speak to a Member Service Representative.
- Visit a branch location and speak to a Member Service Representative.
If you are a new member, we can begin sharing your information 30 days from the date we sent this notice. When you are no longer our member, we continue to share your information as described in this notice.
However, you can contact us at any time to limit our sharing.
* Members cannot opt-out of receiving letters or other credit union communications that carry regulatory notices.

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