We also collect your personal information from others, including credit bureaus or other companies.

How does Fortera Federal Credit Union collect and utilize data with mobile banking applications for marketing purposes?

Our marketing tools collect the following information when using our mobile banking application in order to provide appropriate marketing campaign information:

  • Location data is collected to provide location-based messages and interactions.
  • A random User ID is generated upon initial app access and used later during each marketing tool interaction. The User ID is used for identifying the user and for sending campaign information. This User ID is unique for each device and changes every time the application is re-installed.
  • Product Interaction is a marketing tool used to track user application entry, exit and pages viewed within the application.
  • Our marketing tools will collect your first name for product personalization purposes.

Background location data may be collected while the app is closed or not in use.

Why can’t I limit all sharing?

Federal law only gives you the right to limit:

  • sharing for affiliates’ everyday business purposes—information about your creditworthiness
  • affiliates from using your information to market to you
  • sharing for non-affiliates to market to you

State laws and individual companies may give you additional rights to limit sharing.

What happens when I limit sharing for an account I hold jointly with someone else?

Your choices will apply to everyone on the account you have with us.
