Michigan Business Connection Privacy Statement

Information We Collect

We collect nonpublic personal information from many sources, including but not limited to: business applications, personal information from applicants and other applications for products and services, from those who do business with us or with our partner lenders, and from consumer reporting agencies. We will collect only the personal information that is necessary to conduct our business with you.

Information We Disclose

We do not disclose or sell information to businesses or third parties desiring access to our applicant information without an agreement in place. We may disclose information we collect about you under circumstances as permitted or required by law. These disclosures typically include information to process transactions on your behalf, conduct the operations of our CUSO; follow your instructions as you authorize, or protect the security of our financial records.

We are committed to providing you with competitive products and services to meet your financial needs. This necessitates that we share information about you with our affiliates and partners in order to complete your transactions and to provide you with certain financial opportunities. We have also entered into agreements with other companies that provide either service to us or additional financial products for you to consider. Under these agreements, we may disclose information we collect to companies that perform marketing or other services on our behalf or to other financial institutions with which we have joint marketing or service agreements. To protect your privacy, we require these companies to agree to maintain strong confidentiality protections and we prohibit their use of this information other than to carry out the purposes for which it is disclosed.

If you terminate your relationship with MBC or a member credit union, we will not share information we have collected about you, except as permitted or required by law.

Steps We Take To Protect Your Information

We restrict access to nonpublic personal information about you to those employees who have a specific business purpose in utilizing your data. Our employees and members of the Board of Managers shall maintain confidentiality and applicant privacy. We maintain physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards that comply with federal regulations and industry practices to safeguard your nonpublic personal information.
