Western AgCredit Privacy Policy

At Western AgCredit, we are committed to maintaining the privacy and security of our customers’ sensitive data including personal information and confidential financial information. This privacy policy outlines the ways in which personal data is managed at Western AgCredit to ensure privacy.

Data Collection
We may collect personal information (i.e., your name, address, phone number, email address, etc.) and additional information volunteered by you during the loan inquiry process to enable us to offer you the best products and services. We do not sell or trade your personal information to marketing companies or information brokers. Additionally, your email address is collected when you submit any email to us. If the content of your email communication is very sensitive, or includes personal information such as your bank account, charge card, or Social Security number, you should send it via encrypted email or upload it through our secure web portal (” or by postal mail/delivery service.

As our customer, the privacy and security of the personal information you entrust with us is vital to maintaining a relationship of trust and continuing to serve your ongoing credit needs. Therefore, we will only disclose customer information to others in very limited situations, such as:

  • Third-party service providers who assist us with providing and marketing our products and services, such as data hosting services, analytics services, advertising partners, and online banking service providers.
  • Constant Contact® (or similar provider) to send email marketing and text message communications. For more information about how we may use your information through Constant Contact® see Constant Contact’s Customer Data Notice available at
  • Any affiliates, including other Farm Credit institution(s), or joint venture partners that we have or may have in the future.
  • When necessary to comply with applicable laws and regulations, to respond to a subpoena, search warrant or other lawful request for information we receive, or to otherwise protect our rights or the rights of third parties, or to protect the safety of any person or entity.
  • With your consent or as otherwise disclosed at the time of data collection or sharing.
  • As a credit reference for customers with other lenders (subject to your authorization) or to provide information to a credit bureau or other credit reporting agency.
  • Farm Credit Administration (FCA) examiners to facilitate the review of loan files during regular examinations of our association.
  • When one of our employees applies to become a licensed real estate appraiser, we may give copies of real estate appraisal reports to the State agency that licenses appraisers as required. We will first remove as much personal information from the appraisal report as possible.

We may authorize our advertising partners to use technologies on our website to automatically collect certain information from your device and may share information about you collected from your device with our advertising partners. These partners may also collect information from other websites or applications over time, including information that could be used by us or our advertising partners to direct more relevant targeted ads.

We do not collect any personal information about you when you visit our website unless you provide that information. For example, you may choose to provide information through a web form, during registration, while setting up an account, or when you contact us for customer support. Our website may use technologies such as cookies, web beacons, pixels, and other similar technologies to automatically collect certain information from your device such as Internet provider, browser information, the pages you visit, and the date and time you access our website. This information may be used to enhance your user experience and enable certain features. No information that would identify you personally is collected unless it is provided by you. Your web browser may allow you to block or disable cookies; however, parts of our website may not function properly if you do so.

We may also work with third parties that collect data about your use of our website. We use Google Analytics and other third-party services to improve the performance of the website and for analytical and marketing purposes.

Our privacy policy only pertains to activities within our website. Other sites, including those to which we have provided links, may have their own policies which we do not control and thus are not addressed by our policy. We continue to monitor, review, and update the privacy measures and technology that we have in place to protect your information.

SMS (Text)/Email Communications
We value your privacy and the information you consent to share in relation to our SMS and email marketing service. We use this information to send you email and text notifications and marketing offers. Opt-in data and consent for text messaging and email will not be shared with any third parties except for our messaging partner, Constant Contact (or similar provider), for the purpose of enabling and operating our text and email messaging programs.

By consenting to receive Western AgCredit’s SMS marketing and notifications, you agree to receive recurring text notifications, text marketing offers, and transactional texts, including requests for reviews from us, even if your mobile number is registered on any state or federal do-not-call list. Message frequency varies.

If you wish to stop receiving text messages from us, reply STOP, QUIT, CANCEL, OPT-OUT, or UNSUBSCRIBE to any text message sent from us or by contacting us using the information listed below.

Standard SMS text messages and emails are inherently insecure due to their ability to be intercepted, so we advise that no private information be shared through these methods unless it is through an encrypted email. To the extent permitted by applicable law, you agree that we will not be liable for failed, delayed, or misdirected delivery of any information sent through the service, any errors in such information, and/or any action you may or may not take in reliance on the information or service. We do not charge for the service, but you are responsible for all charges and fees associated with text messaging imposed by your wireless provider. Message and data rates may apply.

Social Media
If you interact with us on our social media platforms, the platform(s) may be able to collect information about you and your interaction with us. If you interact with social media objects on our services (for example, by clicking on a Facebook “like” button), both the platform and your connections on the platform may be able to view that activity. To control this sharing of information, please review the privacy statement of the relevant social media platform you are using.

Privacy Policy Changes
We may update this privacy policy at any time and without notice. Please review it frequently.
