CUTX provides experiences on social media sites such as Facebook®, Twitter®, LinkedIn®, YouTube® and other media channels. These media channels enable online sharing and collaboration for persons who have registered to use those sites.

Please review the particular site’s Terms of use and Privacy Policies to better understand your rights and obligations regarding any content you have posted on a site. The financial services industry is highly regulated, and as a financial institution, CUTX must follow the rules and policies described in this Social Media Policy.

Never disclose any financial information on any of the CUTX social media channels, whether publicly available or through a direct message to CUTX on a social media site.

You always should use caution when posting, sharing or taking any action on these sites and on the Internet in general. Carefully review the privacy and security practices of all such third party websites and channels.

As a fan or follower CUTX presence on social media channels, you consent to receive news, company information and other dissemination of information by CUTX that we think our fans, followers, and viewers will find useful. If at any time you no longer wish to receive information via CUTX social media channel, you may utilize the individual platform’s privacy settings to un-follow and un-friend. CUTX participation on social media platforms or channels is not an effort to socialize information, ideas, and pictures. If you send us ideas or pictures, we own them, and you will not receive compensation. For additional information, please reference Section 2 (above), entitled Idea and Photograph Submission Policy and Standards.
