At GTE Financial, keeping the information you entrust to us private is our highest priority, which is why we employ the most sophisticated security measures available to safeguard your account and personal data from unapproved or fraudulent access.
Part of this process is to require multiple layers of authentication by members using our online services. These steps take a little extra time, but they provide critical protection against access to your data by unwanted parties.
Online Banking Security
GTE Financial uses an integrated security system to protect your data from exposure to unauthorized persons. Some of the components of this security system include:
- A username and password (PIC) are required to access the system.
- MyKey authentication system to strengthen login safeguards by adding steps to verify your identity.
- Encryption scrambles your transmissions when crossing the Internet.
- The Online Banking servers are behind firewalls.
- After entering a password incorrectly three times, access to an account is blocked and your identity must be authenticated before access is restored.
Members are responsible for protecting the secrecy of their username and password in accordance with the terms contained in your new account disclosure. GTE Financial recommends that you not store secured pages in your cache or leave your computer unattended
while you are logged in to Online Banking.
Bill Payment Protection
Bill Pay offers a Payment Guarantee. If we fail to process a payment in accordance with your scheduled Pay Date,
we will make it right.
GTE Financial recognizes that our members expect the highest level of security, privacy and confidentiality when it comes to their personal information. We are committed to maintaining that level. It is our policy that all personal information
our members supply to us will be considered confidential.
We have not, do not, and will not disclose any member’s personal information to any outside organization for their use. We have not, do not, and will not sell our member’s information to any outside organization. We do share information
about our members with reputable credit bureaus, with other financial institutions while conducting bona fide corporate business, and with businesses we have chosen to partner with in order to offer a broader array of products and services.
