Privacy Notice

The Great Lakes Credit Union Web Site Privacy Statement.

This is the web site of the Great Lakes Credit Union. The Great Lakes Credit Union (GLCU) recognizes the importance of your privacy on the Internet. The following explains what types of information are collected when you visit this web site. GLCU does not collect personally-identifying information from its web site unless you decide to provide such information.

Visitors under the age of 18 must obtain permission from their parents or guardians before sending any personally-identifying information to GLCU. All information collected by GLCU is used for internal purposes and is not distributed to outside parties unless otherwise stated.

Like all webservers, the GLCU webservers automatically create log files for each visitor who accesses the site. The "access logs" allow GLCU to make the site more useful to you. The logs do not record your names, address, phone number, billing or financial information or any other personally-identifying information.

The access logs do contain some or all of the following items:

  • The Internet protocol Address (IP Address) of the machine accessing the web site.
  • The date of the visit.
  • The time of the visit.
  • The path taken through the site.
  • The browser software and platform used.
  • The files accessed.

Most Internet Service Providers (ISP) assign IP addresses dynamically. In such a situation, your IP address would be different each time you access the site. Your privacy is further enhanced when your ISP uses a "proxy" server which then assigns the same IP address to everyone accessing the Internet via that ISP.

GLCU does ask its visitors to provide certain personal information when they sign up for our E-mail Club or use our E-mail Comment Form. The information is gathered on a voluntary basis. By providing this information, a visitor may receive e-mail from GLCU on a limited basis.

GLCU reserves the right to change this policy without notice. Any changes to this policy will be posted as soon as reasonably possible, so please check this page periodically. Use of the GLCU web site constitutes consent to any policy then in effect.
