Protect Yourself from Fraudulent Web Sites

Personal information shared over the Internet may be used to commit fraud.  One common method is for thieves to create a web site using a name that is similar to that of a reputable business. The intent is to lure you into clicking onto the copycat web site and giving your personal information, including your account number and password.  Always check that you have typed the correct web site address before entering personal information onto a site.

Applicable Law

Your use of Hawaii Schools Federal Credit Union’s websites is governed by Hawaii state and applicable federal law.

 

Our Privacy Policy for Children

The credit union recognizes that protecting the identity and privacy of children online is important and that responsibility rests with both the credit union and with parents.

Hawaii Schools Federal Credit Union does not knowingly solicit or collect data from children as individuals or as a unique group explicitly, and we do not knowingly market our products exclusively to children as a separate group from the adults for whom the majority of our products and services are intended.

In certain instances, children may be eligible for giveaways or promotions available from the credit union.  In these cases, information may be requested of a child to constitute eligibility, but will be limited to name and birth year – not a full birth date.  Submissions for those giveaways or promotions will constitute automatic entry and is exempt from the Child Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998 rules which require parental consent before information is accepted for consideration by the credit union.  Parents will, however, be allowed to inquire about a child’s suspected submission of this limited data and may request that such data be removed from consideration by the credit union.

If a parent or guardian suspects that his or her child has provided personally-identifiable information to Hawaii Schools FCU, please contact us so that we can allow you the opportunity to review and/or delete the information.  Please contact our Business Development department by calling toll-free (866) 521-0302 or by sending e-mail to info@hawaiischoolsfcu.org.
