Frequently Asked Questions

General Policy Infomration

What is a Privacy Notice?

The U.S. Consumer Privacy Notice is one way we tell you how we collect and use information about you. Federal law requires all financial institutions, including us, to notify our customers, once a year, of their privacy practices and, depending on those practices, to let customers limit some of the ways the institution shares that information. This is called "opting out" of information sharing.

Why do you have 2 privacy policies on

You can access 2 different privacy policies on, which we refer to as our Online Privacy Policy and the U.S. Consumer Privacy Notice. Each of these policies serves a different purpose. Our Online Privacy Policy describes how we can collect, use, share and protect information about people who interact with us through our online websites, mobile applications or social media interfaces. In other words, you don't have to be a VCR customer for our Online Privacy Policy to apply to you. You simply have to be using one of what we call our "online services." In most instances, you'll know you're using one of our online services if you can see our Online Privacy Policy in the footer (the bottom) of the page or in the app's drop-down menu.

The U.S. Consumer Privacy Notice, on the other hand, applies to Veteran Crowd Rewards customers.  Federal law requires that we provide our customers with a copy of the U.S. Consumer Privacy Notice when they open an account with us, and then once a year for as long as they continue that relationship with us. The U.S. Consumer Privacy Notice explains how we get information about our customers as well as the steps we take to protect customer information in our care. It also describes how we can share your personal information with others and how you can limit that sharing. In particular, you can tell us not to share your information with our affiliates or with unaffiliated third parties for their marketing purposes.

How do you protect my information?

We take our responsibility to protect your confidential information seriously. We've set up physical, electronic and procedural safeguards that meet PCI DSS standards for keeping your information safe from unauthorized access or use. For example, our policies and procedures are designed to help ensure that our employees see your information only when they need it to do their work. And they must enter a password to use our computer systems, and then retype the password if they haven't used their computer for a certain amount of time. In addition, our employees must use a security card to get into our buildings, and we have security cameras installed in sensitive areas. We protect your information with 128-bit encryption when you access your account and perform transactions on online.

What kinds of information sharing do partnership programs require?

We and our partners often need to share information to set up the program and figure out your benefits. For example, to make an offer a group, our partner might give us names and addresses of people who already do business with it.

What if I don't want you to share my information?

You have the right to tell us not to share some of your personal information in some circumstances. The U.S. Consumer Privacy Notice describes the ways in which you can limit how we share your personal information. You may contact us via email at We can help you make choices about how we share your personal information. Please keep in mind, however, that you can't limit all of our sharing of your information. We might need to share your personal information to help us do things like service your accounts with us, respond to court orders and prevent fraud. Financial privacy laws give us the right to share information in these, and other, situations whether or not you opt out of our information sharing.  

What do you mean you may share my information with affiliates and "others"? And who are the “others” you'll share my information with?

Federal law allows us to share your personal information with our affiliates and unaffiliated third parties unless you tell us not to share by opting out. The affiliates include any of the financial companies listed at the end of the U.S. Consumer Privacy Notice. It can also save you time and money. Where the law permits, and as long as we honor the opt-out choices you've made, we can also share your personal information with third parties that aren't affiliated with VCR. These “others” include retailers and merchants that offer products and services you may be interested in. You can tell us not to share with them. Nonetheless, as the U.S. Consumer Privacy Notice explains, you can't limit all of our sharing. Even if you opt out, we can disclose your personal information in order to, for example, process your transactions, comply with legal requests or report to credit-reporting agencies.

What does it mean to "opt out"?

When you "opt out" as explained in the U.S. Consumer Privacy Notice, you instruct us not to share certain information about you in certain ways. For example, the U.S. Consumer Privacy Notice lets you tell us not to share your consumer report information with our affiliates.

What choices do I have for opting out of information sharing?

Please look at the U.S. Consumer Privacy Notice for a detailed explanation of your choices about the information you share. This Privacy Notice also tells you how you can change your choices.

If I told you my privacy preferences last year, do I need to tell you again this year?

No. The privacy preferences you tell us don't expire. If you opted out of certain kinds of information sharing, we won't share that information unless you tell us you've changed your mind. You'll need to tell us your opt-out preferences again, though, if you change your name or make other significant changes to your identification information.

How do I benefit from Veteran Crowd Rewards's information sharing with service providers and companies outside of your affiliates?

You may get more offers for products and services that might interest you if we can share information with outside companies that work for us, including those that help us market our products and with whom we have joint marketing agreements. You may also get discounted pricing on those products and services.

Does the U.S. Consumer Privacy Notice apply when I'm doing business online?

Yes, if you're our customer, the U.S. Consumer Privacy Notice governs all of our interactions with your personal information. For that reason, our websites include links to the U.S. Consumer Privacy Notice, which explains how we protect your information when you bank with us. You'll also be subject to our Online Privacy Policy.

If you aren't our customer, the U.S. Consumer Privacy Notice doesn't apply to you. You're still subject to our Online Privacy Policy, however. This policy explains how we may collect, share, use and protect information from anyone who visits a Veteran Crowd Reward’s online service.

We also have Web-linking standards that govern how and when we let you know when you've chosen a link that will take you to a third-party site (one not owned or operated by VCR). Neither our Online Privacy Policy nor the U.S. Consumer Privacy Notice (nor our website terms) will apply after you leave our site. You should read the privacy policy, terms of use and security practices of the linked third-party website before giving any information on that website and to see how they apply to you.

What is a "cookie"?

A cookie is a tiny text file that a website you visit creates and then stores in your Web browser. The cookie can contain a variety of information about you, from a unique ID to the preferences you've set for that website. We use cookies when you register the first time, when you sign in with your user name and password, and when you tell us information about yourself such as your address.

We also use cookies on sites where we advertise. We set cookies so that we recognize you as a customer and can give you the best online experience possible. Read our Online Privacy Policy to find out more about how we use cookies to collect information about you.

How do I opt out of promotional emails you send me?

Our email offers include instructions for telling us you don't want to get any more of our promotional emails. These instructions are usually at the bottom of the email offer.

If you get emails from an outside company on our behalf, you'll need to either follow the instructions in that email to stop the offers or contact that company directly. Before you give any company your personal information, we encourage you to read the privacy and security policies, as well as the terms and conditions, of the websites you visit to see how they apply to you.
