IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT PROCEDURES FOR OPENING A NEW ACCOUNT
To help the government fight the funding of terrorism and money laundering activities, Federal law requires all financial institutions to obtain, verify and record information that identifies each person who opens an account. What this means for you: When you open an account, we will ask for your name, address, date of birth, and other information that will allow us to identify you. We may also ask to see your driver license.
We understand that you trust us with your personal information. VAPR FCU uses established security standards and ethical business practices to insure your information is secure. In fact, we believe it's every employee's responsibility to safeguard your account information. We are constantly evaluating new advances in technology to keep your information secure.
VAPR FCU uses firewalls and routers to block unauthorized access to our networks and computer virus protection to detect and prevent computer viruses from entering the Credit Union's systems. We also use encryption technology such as Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) to keep your information safe.
VAPR FCU's website utilizes the Secure Sockets Layer protocol (SSL 3.0) and Microsoft's Private Communication technology protocol (PCT 1.0) with full support for 128-bit encryption methods, which are among the highest in the industry for transactions on the Internet. Our SSL technology is certified with a secure certificate from VeriSign, the leading "seal of approval" for online authentication services. This helps to provide online security that conforms to the highest standards available.
New technology has helped make our lives a little easier. It has also created new opportunities for fraud and identity theft. The good news is you can protect yourself against these crimes that could steal your money, your credit rating and even your identity. By gaining an understanding of these issues and working with reputable companies that respect your privacy and security, you can enjoy financial security and peace of mind.
