Creditor reporting account as “Joint” rather than as “Cosigner”

Dear Experian,

How should a loan I cosigned for my daughter be listed on my report? The creditor listed it as “Joint” but the credit union told me they put me in their system as the primary borrower, which is wrong. My daughter is the primary borrower.
