Mobile app solutions
Verity Credit Union's mobile apps, including Digital Banking and the Verity credit card app, may periodically collect, transmit, and use geolocation information for enabling features such as, but not limited to, card use and alerts to prevent fraudulent activates, but only if the end user expressly authorizes collection of such information. Geolocation information can be monitored on a continuous basis in the background only while the feature(s) are being used or not at all, depending on the end user’s selection. The end user can change his/her/their location permissions at any time in their device settings.
When you use the Verity Credit Union mobile application to perform Zelle payments and similar funds transfers, you may authorize the credit union and its service provider to access your contact list names, email addresses and phone numbers on the mobile app and your mobile device to facilitate your transactions. We will always ask for your permission before accessing your contact data for these transactions.
