Security and Privacy
Our commitment to security & privacy
Your privacy is taken very seriously by us and we want you to know that we will not sell information about you to any third party company or Web site. If you email us or provide us with your email address, we will not give this information to anyone outside of the credit union. When you visit the "Active Web Site" portion of our Web site, a temporary "cookie" will be placed on your hard drive. For more information, see the 'About Cookies' section below.
Secure site information
Every member is responsible for protecting the secrecy of their PIN. You should never give this number to unauthorized persons. The credit union does not know your PIN and if you forget the number you will need to contact the credit union to have a new one issued.
The terminology "cookie" is used to describe a nugget of data that is stored on your hard drive as a file. Cookies make it easier, quicker, and more secure for you to log into and use the Active Web Site.
We use a temporary cookie to verify who you are while using the Active Web site. Your privacy is not compromised by these cookies. The cookie placed on your hard drive can only be used by your credit union's Active Web Site. Cookies cannot be executed as code or deliver viruses. In order to access our secure site, you must allow the temporary cookie. The temporary cookie is removed after you exit the secure site section.
Encryption is a term for scrambling meaningful text and numbers at one location and transmitting them across the Internet to another location. The encryption process uses complex algorithmic formulas to create a key that is used to translate the information back into use-able content. There are billions of potential keys and a different key is used for each Active Web Site session.
All confidential information sent to and requested by this site is encrypted. The credit union submits the account information using Secure Socket Layer (SSL) encrypted network transmissions.

It is important to us to help protect you from identity theft. There are many forms of identity theft and one common scam is known as "phishing". Phishing occurs when criminals attempt to defraud unsuspecting victims by creating forgeries of legitimate e-mails and websites. To shield your accounts from fraudulent activity, remember these best practices:
- Park View Federal Credit Union will never request that you update or give out personal information via e-mail
- Exercise caution when it comes to e-mail messages threatening that your account has been suspended, deactivated, or frozen, or warning of unauthorized access to your account
- Never give out your personal information to an unknown source - especially if you have not initiated the interaction
- Report any suspicious activity to the Federal Trade Commission
