Facts about SESLOC and your personal information

Financial companies choose how they share your personal information. Federal law gives consumers the right to limit some but not all sharing. Federal law also requires us to tell you how we collect, share, and protect your personal information.

The types of personal information we collect and share depend on the product or service you have with us. This information can include:

  • Social Security number and income
  • Account balances and payment history
  • Credit history and credit score

When you are no longer our member, we continue to share your information as described in this notice.

All financial companies need to share customers'/members' personal information to run their everyday business.

Why can't I limit all sharing?

Federal law gives you the right to limit only
