Protecting Children's Privacy Online

The Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) was passed by Congress in October 1998, with a requirement that the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) issue and enforce rules concerning children's online privacy. The primary goal of the Act and the Rule is to place parents in control over what information is collected from their children online. Arbor Financial Credit Union does not knowingly collect, nor is our web site designed or directed to use personal information from children under the age of 13 without containing verifiable consent from their parents.

Email Encryption Services

To ensure the confidentiality of private information that our company sends you via email and comply with all privacy and regulation standards, we are implementing a new email encryption service through Zix Corporation, the leader in email encryption services.

ZixCorp's easy-to-use email protection makes it seamless for you to receive, read and reply to all encrypted email communication we send you. If you are a ZixCorp customer, you do not need to do anything. Email is securely sent between our organizations and delivered directly to your Inbox. If you are not currently a ZixCorp customer, you receive confidential email through the Secure Message Center.

The protection of confidential communication is important to us and we want to ensure your information stays private. This site helps you understand our encrypted email initiatives.
