Our mission is to preserve and enhance privacy protections for all individuals whose personal information is handled by the NCUA, and to promote transparency of agency’s operations involving personal information.
NCUA Privacy is responsible for the development and maintenance of privacy policies, procedures, and guidance pertaining to the collection, access, use, dissemination, and storage of personally identifiable information throughout the NCUA.
A System of Records Notice (SORN) is a publication in the Federal Register that informs the public of the existence of a “system of records” the NCUA is keeping. SORNs describe the type of information collected, why it is being collected, what it may be used for, when it may be disclosed to third parties, how it will be safeguarded, and how and when it will be destroyed.
A Privacy Impact Assessment (PIA) is an analysis of how an information system (like a computer program, process, or project) uses personal information. PIAs help identify and limit privacy risks, and serve as additional notice to the public about the NCUA’s activities that may affect individuals’ personal information.
A Privacy Act statement is a notice that must be provided whenever an individual is asked to give personal information to the agency. It explains why the personal information is being requested and how the NCUA will use it.
A computer matching agreement is a contract involving a computerized comparison of records for the purpose of establishing or verifying eligibility for, or recouping payments for, a federal benefit program. Some computer matching agreements also relate to federal personnel management matters.
As required by the Privacy Act, the NCUA has published regulations implementing the privacy program and detailing the
Privacy Record Request process.
