Our Online Services use Google Analytics which is one of the most widespread and trusted analytics solutions on the web to help us understand how you use the site and ways that we can improve your experience. These cookies may track things such as how long you spend on the site and the pages that you visit so we can continue to produce engaging content. Our Online Services have implemented Remarketing with Google Analytics to advertise online. You may review further information about how Google Analytics collects and processes data and how to control the information sent to Google at "How Google uses information from sites or apps that use our services" at https://policies.google.com/technologies/partner-sites.
Third-party vendors, including Google, may show you ads on sites across the internet. Our Online Services and third-party vendors, including Google, use first-party cookies (such as the Google Analytics cookie) and third-party cookies (such as the DoubleClick cookie) together to inform, optimize, and serve ads based on someone's past visits to this website.

We use third-party tools that allow us to use tracking technologies (e.g., pixels) to show you advertising relevant to APGFCU on other websites that you visit on the Internet based on your past visits to or use of our Online Services. Some browsers have a “do not track” feature that lets you tell websites that you do not want to have your online activities tracked. We currently do not respond to “do not track” signals. If, however, your mobile device has settings that turn off tracking, those settings may disable our tracking technologies.
We may also use social media buttons and/or plugins on this site that allow you to connect with your Facebook and LinkedIn networks in various ways.
