Once collected, Vision Credit Union will store and process your personal information in secure locations.
Personal information will only be retained by Vision Credit Union for the length of time required to fulfill the purpose or complete the transaction for which it was collected, or as may be required by law. Beyond that point, personal information in the possession or control of Vision Credit Union will be anonymized or securely destroyed.
Vision Credit Union maintains reasonable physical, technical, and administrative security measures to minimize the risk of unauthorized loss, theft, copying, misuse, access, disclosure, alteration, or destruction of your personal information.
Vision Credit Union also restricts access to your personal Information to only those persons who have a legitimate business need or legal requirement to view it in connection with the Services. You, as a personal information owner, may also authorize any persons you may choose to have access to your personal information.
Although Vision Credit Union does utilize security measures appropriate to the level of risk, no method of data transfer or storage on the internet is 100% secure and security risks cannot be eliminated entirely. As such, Vision Credit Union cannot guarantee perfect security, integrity, or confidentiality of personal information.
In the event of a data breach or security incident involving the Services, Vision Credit Union will take all reasonable steps to comply with the breach reporting obligations that may be applicable to it under Alberta privacy laws. Vision Credit Union may also seek to notify you in such event. If notification is appropriate or required, Vision Credit Union may notify you by email, messaging to your device, or other reasonable means.
Disclosure of Personal Information
Vision Credit Union does not provide personal information to unaffiliated third parties for their use in marketing directly to you. We may use unaffiliated companies, or trusted third party service providers, to help maintain and operate our Services for reasons related to our business operations and to better serve you, and those companies may receive your personal information for that purpose. When Vision Credit Union shares personal information with third-party services that support our delivery of the Services, we require that they use your personal information only for the purposes we’ve authorized, and that they protect your personal information to at least the same standards used by Vision Credit Union.
Vision Credit Union may also disclose personal information about you in connection with legal requirements, such as in response to an authorized subpoena, governmental request or investigation, or as otherwise permitted by applicable law (including, without limitation, to prevent fraud or abuse, or to protect Vision Credit Union’s legal rights, property, or the safety of Vision Credit Union, its employees, users or others).
Finally, as Vision Credit Union’s business develops, it may sell or buy corporate assets, and in such transactions personal information may be one of the transferred business assets. If Vision Credit Union, its internet businesses, or substantially all of its shares or assets, is acquired or an acquisition is contemplated, personal information may be one of the assets assessed or transferred in connection with that transaction.
