How we help protect children
Rio Grande Credit Union does not knowingly solicit or collect personal data from children under the age of 13, nor does the credit union knowingly market to children. The only financial service Rio Grande Credit Union offers to children under the age of 13 is a savings program that includes their parent or guardian, along with financial education intended to support the child's financial literacy. Rio Grande Credit Union recognizes that protecting children's identities and privacy is important and that responsibility, ultimately, rests with the parents or guardians.
