This week we launched a pop-banner on informing users of the site to our practices regarding cookies and how we use cookies; a common practices for websites and something you’ve likely experienced visiting different websites.

We also updated our Privacy Statement page to include detailed information including:

  • What are cookies?
  • How and why we use cookies
  • How you can manage your cookie preferences

Cookies is a term for a packet of data that a computer receives, then sends back without changing or altering it. As an example, when you visit a website, the website sends the cookies to your computer and then your computer stores it back in a file located inside your web browser - this can aid in remembering the page you visited or storing and remembering a username.

BFSFCU primarily uses cookies to optimize the user experience. BFSFCU does not collect, share, or sell personal data through cookies. BFSFCU does not use cookies for marketing purposes.

Though not a requirement, we are presenting this information as a best practice and for transparency with users of the site. We encourage you to review the information on our Privacy Statement page and feel free to reach out with any questions at 202-212-6400.
