On all pages that collect personal information, we specifically indicate what information is required in order to provide you with the product or service you have requested.
Online application and enrollment forms
When you apply online for products or services, we may need to collect personal information in order to complete your request. The personal information we collect varies depending upon the product or service for which you apply. Examples of information we may collect includes the following:
- Date of Birth

- Social Security Number
Information we capture through an application or enrollment is securely transferred to the DuPage Credit Union. We also collect your personal information from credit bureaus, Chex Systems, affiliates, or other companies.
When you visit our site, we gather information including page request (URL request), time of your visit, your IP address, operating system, web browser software, and any cookies which were set during a previous visit to our site. The information is collected to improve your overall Credit Union experience. We also use the information to track site usage and compile statistics. This helps us improve the site so that you will find it more useful and informative and enable customized promotions you may be interested in. IP address information is not distributed to third parties.
We offer online financial management calculators to assist you in your personal financial analysis and planning efforts. The information necessary to perform the calculations includes personal financial information; however, this information does not include personal identifiers to link the information to your identity.

How we use your information
Information collected through this website may be used to:
- Improve the quality of your visits to our site and your overall experience
- Respond to your question or suggestions
- Fulfill your online application or enrollment requests
- Send promotional offers to selected groups of website visitors
We may also use the information we collect for analytic purposes, market research, or for marketing purposes, as allowed by law.
Who we share your information with
We limit the release of information and we do not sell members' information. We will share information only when necessary to administer products or services we provide, when we partner with affiliates to offer you a broader array of products and services. We may disclose your personal information as otherwise permitted or required by law.
Why can't I limit all sharing?
Federal law gives you the right to limit only:
- Sharing for affiliates’ everyday business purposes-information about your creditworthiness
- Affiliates from using your information to market to you
- Sharing for non-affiliated to market to you

Online behavioral advertising
Some of the ads you receive on webpages are customized based on predictions about your interests generated from your visits over time and across different websites. This type of ad customization sometimes called online behavioral advertising is enabled through your computer browser and browser cookies. Such online behavioral advertising helps support the free content, products, and services you get online.
The benefits of online behavioral advertising help support sites you visit so that you can enjoy free content ranging from news to sports to recipes. At the same time, it helps advertisers reach the right people for their product and services.
DuPage Credit Union uses online behavioral advertising as a remarketing tool. Opting out does not mean you will no longer receive online advertising. It does mean that the company or companies from which you opted out will no longer deliver ads tailored to your web preference and usage patterns.
