Privacy Policy

At the Estonian (Toronto) Credit Union Limited we have taken every precaution to preserve the confidentiality and privacy of your relationship with the Credit Union. Respect for preserving the confidentiality of the financial and personal information entrusted to us is an essential part of doing business with our members and will not be compromised.

We have adopted the Credit Union Code for the Protection of Personal Information. Please note that we do not share or release your personal information to third parties for the purpose of enabling them to promote their products.

Below is a summary of our 10 Privacy Principles of the Code for the Protection of Personal Information:

  1. Accountability  The Credit Union is responsible for personal information under its control and shall designate a Privacy Officer who is accountable for the Credit Union's compliance with the Principles of the Code.
  2. Identifying Purposes  The purposes for which personal information is collected shall be identified by the Credit Union at or before the time the information is collected.
  3. Consent  The knowledge and consent of the member are required for the collection, use and disclosure of personal information, except in specific circumstances as described within this Code.
  4. Limiting Collection  The collection of personal information shall be limited to that which is necessary for the purposes identified by the Credit Union. Information shall be collected by fair and lawful means.
  5.
