Blue Star PRIVACY POLICY STATEMENT:

The credit union collects nonpublic personal information about you from the following sources:
  • Information we receive from you on applications or other forms;
  • Information about your transactions with us or others; and
  • Information we receive from a consumer-reporting agency.
We do not disclose any nonpublic information about you to anyone, except as permitted by law.
If you decide to terminate your membership, we will adhere to the privacy policies and practices as described in this notice.
The credit union restricts access to your personal and account information to those employees who need to know that information to provide services to you.
The credit union maintains physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards that comply with federal regulations to guard your nonpublic personal information.

We do not carry any personal information about members on our website or any computer hooked up to the Internet. When a member applies for a loan, we pull a credit report by sending a message to a special credit bureau phone number and retrieving just that information and nothing else. All our discarded paper transactions are shredded. We do not sell or share our database with anyone.

Credit Report Information from the Federal Trade Commission Website:
What is AnnualCreditReport.com?

"AnnualCreditReport.com is the ONLY authorized source for the free annual credit report that's yours by law. The Fair Credit Reporting Act guarantees you access to your credit report for free from each of the three nationwide credit reporting companies Experian, Equifax, and TransUnion every 12 months. The Federal Trade Commission has received complaints from consumers who thought they were ordering their free annual credit report, and yet couldn't get it without paying fees or buying other services. TV ads, email offers, or online search results may tout "free" credit reports, but there is only one authorized source for a truly free credit report."

You can also contact each Credit Bureau individually, BUT it will cost you.
