Email Marketing/Commercial Email Practices
Effective June 2010
Email marketing (emails whose primary purpose is commercial) will be handled in accordance with the federal CAN-SPAM rule. A “Manage Your Subscription” link will be provided at the bottom of every message you receive. You can choose to stop receiving email messages from Sound Credit Union at any time by clicking the “Manage Your Subscription” link. Please note that this opt-out only applies to promotional/commercial emails and will not affect any email communications you receive regarding important account information, product and service updates, or legally or regulatory required information by email. We also reserve the right to include some promotional information, as permitted by law, in the emails notifying you of the periodic statements and other disclosures or member transactional information that you have received electronically.
In order to keep you abreast of our latest service offerings, we may at times share your information with our affiliates and third-party service providers; however we will never sell or share your personal information to independent, third-party marketers.
Phishing is a type of scam that uses electronic communication in an attempt to collect sensitive information including credit card numbers, Social Security numbers, and online user ID and passwords.
Sound Credit Union will never send an email requiring members to provide personal financial information via the web, email, or pop-up windows. Any unsolicited requests for account information you receive through emails, websites, or pop-up windows should be considered fraudulent and reported immediately.
