Blog Policy

Specific blog policy guidelines are below. Please read them carefully before posting.

1. Blogger Identification Encouraged

Given that all too often Internet anonymity has been used to spread false or misleading information, we encourage, but do not require, all bloggers to identify themselves. This allows readers to consider the source of the written content and draw their own conclusions.

However, we will allow anonymous postings from bloggers if they feel revealing their true names may or would result in some retaliation, other form of unfair treatment, or undue embarrassment.

All bloggers agree that any misrepresentation may lead to terminating their right to blog here and lead to deletion of their work.

The posting must be the work of the writer alone unless the writer provides attribution for any other content. Such added content may not violate any copyright or intellectual property rights.

The blogger permits anyone to copy, distribute, display and perform their content without compensation on the condition that users credit the author each time they do so.

2. Conduct

We reserve the right to remove any content that is illegal, obscene, defamatory, threatening, infringing of intellectual property rights, invasive of privacy or otherwise injurious or objectionable.

Each blogger agrees he/she will not knowingly and with intent to defraud provide material and misleading false information. You agree you will indemnify and hold the New York Credit Union Association harmless for any and all claims resulting from content you supply.

You acknowledge that we do not pre-screen posted content, but we have the right to remove in its sole discretion any content that it considers to violate these Terms.

3. Sole Content Responsibility of Blogger

Each blogger understands all content posted to our site is the sole responsibility of the individual who originally posted the content. All opinions expressed by site users are the writers’ alone and do not necessarily reflect the views of the New York Credit Union Association.

You agree that the New York Credit Union Association will not be liable, under any circumstances and in any way, for any errors or omissions, loss or damage of any kind incurred as a result of use of any content posted on this site. You agree that you must evaluate and bear all risks associated with the use of any content, including any reliance on the accuracy, completeness, or usefulness of such content.

4. Age Requirement

Bloggers must be 18 years of age or older to participate.

5. Modification of These Terms of Use

The New York Credit Union Association reserves the right to change, at any time, at our sole discretion, the Terms under which these Services are offered. You are responsible for regularly reviewing these Terms. Your continued participation in the blog constitutes your agreement to all such Terms.

    I am interested in knowing the regulations CU ‘s in NY have regarding the sale of for closures. I was interested in a place, called the cu, signed up for the notices, etc. the place was sold, and I had no opportunity to bid on it. Can they just sell it to who they want? Thank you for any info you can give me.
