Information Practice Statement
As a general policy, Franklin Mint Federal Credit Union does not automatically collect personal information from users of its web site. Franklin Mint Federal Credit Union does collect and store information on the domain a user uses to access its web site, the Internet address of the web site from which a user links to the credit union’s web site, and the date and time of the visitor’s visit to the credit union’s web site. This information is used to measure the number of visitors to its web site and track the route a user travels while within the credit union’s web site to better service users through improved design and site navigation.
Personal identification (e.g.: member number, PIN/Password) is collected when a valid credit union member, with active credit union account(s), has registered to enter the secure online banking area of the credit union’s web site. This information enables the credit union to regulate access of this information to those who request such access and those entitled to perform transactions on the account(s).
The Franklin Mint Federal Credit Union web site requires the use of “cookies,” which are small pieces of information a web site stores on a visitor’s web browser. For example, cookies are required to help protect the privacy of a member’s transactions by automatically terminating online sessions if the member forgets to log out. Cookies cannot be used to capture a user’s email address, obtain data from the user’s hard drive, or gain confidential or sensitive information about the user. Additionally, a cookie cannot be read by any web site other than the one that set the cookie.
Franklin Mint Federal Credit Union provides online forms and applications to better serve the needs of its members. Personal information provided by a user via any of the credit union’s online forms is used by the Franklin Mint Federal Credit Union only to process the member’s request for service.
Personal information transmitted to Franklin Mint Federal Credit Union may be used by credit union staff to respond to inquiries for service or information or to improve the service the credit union provides. Since email messages may not be secure against interception by unauthorized individuals, users may want to seek alternatives to email when it is necessary to provide sensitive or personal information. Likewise, the credit union will not transmit sensitive or personal information that can compromise or violate a user’s privacy when communicating via email.
Third Party Web Site Statement
We provide links to other World Wide Web sites and resources. We do not control these sites and resources and are not responsible for their availability, content, or delivery of services. We encourage you to be aware of all privacy and security practices before giving information about yourself.
ADA Website Accessibility
Franklin Mint Federal Credit Union is committed to providing a website that is as accessible as possible to our membership as in our branches. This new version of our web site (launched in March 2018) was built from scratch by our third-party web site vendor who uses the latest in ADA standards. Franklin Mint Federal Credit Union strives to make every page accessible to users but cannot guarantee that every page fully meets Level A and Level AA guidelines. While there is no definitive test nor certification of conformance to Level A or Level AA of the WCAG, we have used a variety of methods for assessing accessibility including following recommendations by various experts in the credit union industry (CUInsight, NCUA, NAFCU, etc.).
With the new design, we have made our best effort to make sure our site adheres to WCAG standards. We understand the plugin we use to review our site and the Chrome Auditing Tools (for Web Developers) are valuable tools in the process but are not infallible. There are many tools out there to test, audit and review web sites for ADA compliance, but none are all-encompassing. Therefore, we will continue to monitor and test our site on an ongoing basis. If you find a section of the site that you feel does not conform to Level A or Level AA of the WCAG, please us know using a method below, in order for us to assess and fix the issue.
Please note that some pages have partial conformance due to the use of 3rd party vendors. As such, Franklin Mint Federal Credit Union does not claim full site-wide conformance, instead a partial conformance, as defined by WCAG Level AA 2.0. We cannot ensure conformance of third-party plug-ins and widgets.

Privacy on the Internet
FMFCU uses firewalls that are designed to protect your accounts from unauthorized access from outside the credit union. FMFCU uses a cryptographic (digital certificate) key to secure account information sent between our server and your browser. Whenever you use FMFCU Online Banking our server responds to your transmission by sending this key that is authenticated by your browser. This communication key encrypts the data sent by you and FMFCU decrypts it when we receive it. Online banking will also “timeout” after a specified period of inactivity. This prevents persons from continuing your home banking session in case you have left your PC unattended. You may set the timeout period in the User Options screen of online banking.
It is also important to verify that only authorized persons log into home banking. This is achieved by verifying your password. When you submit your password, it is compared with the password we have stored in our secure data base. We allow you to enter your password incorrectly a certain amount of times. If you enter your password incorrectly after these tries, your online banking account will be locked until you call us to reinitialize the account. We monitor and record “bad-login” attempts to detect any suspicious activity. You play a crucial role in preventing others from logging on to your account. Never use passwords that are easy to guess. Examples of bad passwords are: Birth dates, first names, pet names, addresses, phone numbers, etc. Never reveal your password to another person. You should periodically change your password in the User Option screen of online banking, including the blending of upper and lower case lettering.
Our Web Site contains links to other external sites. FMFCU is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of such Web Sites.

Limitation of Services Non-Participation
The Franklin Mint Federal Credit Union (“Credit Union”) is committed to adhering to all federal and state regulatory laws and applicable consumer protection laws, including NCUA Rules and Regulations and Bylaws, and maintaining a culture of compliance while serving its consumer and business members on a fair and nondiscriminatory basis. This policy establishes limitations and restrictions of services for consumer and business members, joint owners or joint borrowers (collectively referred to herein as “members”) who are not in good standing with Credit Union. This policy protects our Board of Directors, Committee Members, employees, members, volunteers and vendors (collectively “Credit Union Related Parties”) from abusive members or other persons. In addition, as a not-for-profit financial cooperative owned by the membership, it is also noted that a financial loss caused by a member is ultimately borne by the entire membership.
Credit Union will not tolerate members or other persons who are abusive whether it be over the phone, in-person or through electronic media. Our intent is not to restrict anyone’s rights and freedoms, but rather to address certain unacceptable conduct to assure the rights and protections of Credit Union Related Parties. The Board of Directors and Executive Management believes that all members and employees should be able to conduct business without fear of harassment and/or fear of disruptive or abusive conduct as a result of membership or employment with Credit Union.
At no time should the limitation of services or expulsion of a member be based on race, color, religion, national origin, sex, sexual orientation or age.
Abusive Conduct. Includes, but is not limited to, any of the following:

FMFCU Discretionary Overdraft Privilege Policy
(Rev. March 2016)
It is the policy of Franklin Mint Federal Credit Union (FMFCU) to comply with all applicable laws and regulations and to conduct business in accordance with applicable safety and soundness standards.
The Account Agreement and Disclosure provided to you at the time you opened your membership with us controls the duties, obligations and rights of the Depositor, the Authorized Signatories and FMFCU with regard to your checking account(s). The Account Agreement (and all amendments thereto) and its terms shall control any possible conflict, if any, between any provision of this Discretionary Overdraft Privilege Policy and the Account Agreement and Disclosure. An additional copy of the Account Agreement and Disclosure is available to you on request at any branch office or by calling our Member Service Center at 610-325-5100 or (800) 220-3193.
FMFCU will have the discretion to pay overdrafts within the overdraft privilege limits, but payment by FMFCU is a discretionary courtesy and not a right of the member or an obligation of FMFCU. This privilege for checking will generally not exceed a maximum of $700 overdraft (negative) balance. This privilege for business accounts will generally not exceed a maximum of $500 overdraft (negative) balance. Of course, any and all fees and charges, including without limitation the non-sufficient funds fees (as set forth in our fee schedules and account agreement and disclosure), will be included as part of this maximum amount. The total of the discretionary overdraft privilege (negative) balance, including any and all fees and charges, including all non-sufficient funds/overdraft fees is due and payable upon demand, and Depositor and each Authorized Signatory will continue to be liable, jointly and severally, for all such amounts, as described in the Account Agreement and Disclosure with a maximum repayment period of 30 days.
Pursuant to FMFCU’s commitment to always provide you with the best level of service, now and in the future, if you are 21 years of age and your active checking account (primarily used for personal and household purposes) has been open for at least sixty (60) days, or if your active business account has been open for at least sixty (60) days, and thereafter you maintain your account in good standing, which includes at least:
- Bringing your account balance to a positive balance within every thirty (30) day period for a minimum period of 24 hours; positive status is required during business days, excluding weekends and holidays
- A valid mailing address on file;
- Not being in default on any loan or other obligation to FMFCUand
- Not being subject to any legal or administrative order or levy
Overdraft privilege is not a line of credit. However, if you inadvertently overdraw your account, we will have the discretion to pay the overdraft (ACH, Check or bill-pay transactions), subject to the limit of your overdraft privilege and the amount of the overdraft (NSF) fee. In order to have ODP provided to your Debit Card/POS, FMFCU is required to have an OPT IN request on record. FMFCU is not obligated to pay any item presented for payment if your account does not contain sufficient available funds. Any discretionary payment by FMFCU of an overdraft item, (such as a check, ACH, Debit Purchase or Bill Pay transaction) does not obligate FMFCU to pay any other overdraft items, or to provide prior notice of its decision to refuse to pay such items.
Again, while FMFCU will have the discretion to pay overdrafts on accounts in good standing (as described above), any such payment is a discretionary courtesy, and not a right of the member or an obligation of FMFCU and FMFCU in its sole and absolute discretion, can cease paying overdrafts at any time without prior notice of reason or cause.
