Triangle Credit Union is owned by its members and run by a board of directors you elect. You can be confident that financial privacy is a top priority of your credit union. We are required by law to explain how we collect, use and safeguard your personal financial information. This notice describes how we protect the privacy of your personal information, and gives you an opportunity to let us know if you do not want certain information about you disclosed to other businesses.
We are committed to providing you with competitive products and services to meet your financial needs, which necessitates that we share information about you to complete your transactions and to provide you with certain financial opportunities. In order to do so we may share information about you with our affiliated third party financial service provider, Triangle Member Services Group, LLC., which provides access to financial planning, investment, and insurance services.
We may also disclose information about you under other circumstances as permitted or required by law. These disclosures typically include information to follow your instructions as you authorize, to conduct the operations of the credit union, or to protect the security of our financial records. We may also enter into agreements with other companies that provide either services to us or additional financial products for you to consider. Under these arrangements, we may disclose the necessary information, only the information needed to market and effect the particular product or service, to companies that perform marketing or other services on our behalf. In no instance does Triangle Credit Union provide any information that will allow companies marketing their financial services to access your account without your express consent.
To protect our members' privacy, we only work with companies that agree to maintain strong confidentiality protections and limit the use of information we provide. We do not permit these companies to sell to other third parties the information we provide. Triangle Credit Union does not sell membership lists or your nonpublic personal information. If you have any questions, please contact a member service representative at 603-889-2470.

If you prefer that we not disclose information about you to certain businesses, you may "opt out" of these disclosures; that is, you may direct us not to make those disclosures. This "opt out" will not apply to information sharing that is permitted by law, such as with collection companies and credit bureaus, or to information sharing with companies that perform marketing services on our behalf.
Unless we hear from you, we reserve the right to disclose the following information about you to non-affiliated businesses engaged in marketing services on our behalf or other products and services that we believe would be beneficial to our members.
However, if you wish to opt out of disclosures to parties that are not affiliated with the credit union, you must:
Call the following telephone number: (603) 889-2470
Complete the opt out form contained within Triangle’s Privacy Notice and mail it to Triangle Credit Union, 33 Franklin St, Nashua NH 03064-2639 or fax it back to (603) 883-7120.
Note to non-member joint account holders: Anyone of you may exercise the right to opt out, even if you are not actually a member of the credit union. Triangle Credit Union will treat an opt out request from any one party to an account as if all of you directed us to not make disclosures to nonaffiliated third parties to which the opt out right applies.
How Triangle Credit Union Protects Your Information
We restrict access to information about you to those employees who need to know that information to provide products and services to you. We maintain physical, electronic and procedural safeguards that comply with federal regulations to guard your personal financial information.
We want to bring to your attention that there may be instances where you erroneously believe the credit union has released personal information about you. For example, information about a secured loan you have from our credit union may be publicly available in local government records, and a business has compiled this information in order to market you a product that this credit union does not endorse.
As a member of our credit union, we remind you that you have a responsibility to safeguard your financial information by protecting your identification access numbers and reviewing your periodic account statements. If you have any concerns about the accuracy or security of the personal information you have entrusted to Triangle Credit Union, please contact the Chairman of our Supervisory Committee:
Triangle Credit Union Supervisory Committee
Nashua, NH 03061-0717
What You Can Do To Help Protect Your Privacy
Triangle Credit Union is committed to protecting the privacy of its members. Members can help by following these simple guidelines:
Protect your account numbers, card numbers, PIN's(personal identification numbers) and passwords. Never keep your PIN with your debit card, ATM card, or credit card which can provide free access to your accounts if your card is lost or stolen.
Use caution when disclosing your account numbers, social security numbers, etc. to other persons. If someone calls you, explains the call is on behalf of the credit union and asks for your account number, you should beware. Official credit union staff will have access to your information and will not need to ask for it.
Keep your information with us current. It is important that we have current information on how to reach you. If we detect potentially fraudulent or unauthorized activity or use of an account, we will attempt to contact you immediately. If your address or phone number changes, please let us know.
If you have questions concerning this notice, please do not hesitate to contact us at (603) 889-2470. We are here to serve you, our valued member.
