Scope and Overview: This policy outlines how Tongass Federal Credit Union, its vendors, and/or the licensor of the Tongass Federal Credit Union’s consumer verification software processes biometric data collected from you for identity verification and fraud prevention purposes.
Biometric Data Defined: As used in this policy, biometric data includes “biometric identifiers” and “biometric information”. “Biometric identifier” means a retina or iris scan, fingerprint, voiceprint, or scan of hand or face geometry. As the term is used in this policy, the selfie photograph you upload to the software for use in the biometric algorithm is considered a "biometric identifier." “Biometric information” means any information, regardless of how it is captured, converted, stored, or shared, based on an individual’s biometric identifier used to identify an individual.
Disclosure and Authorization Policy: To the extent that Tongass Federal Credit Union, its vendors, and/or the licensor of the Tongass Federal Credit Union’s consumer verification software collect, capture, or otherwise obtain biometric data relating to a consumer, Tongass Federal Credit Union must first:
