Information Policies

We place a high value upon the trust that you place in us when applying for a loan. We promise not to abuse that trust by inappropriately using the information you provide to us. We request this information in order to provide you with the most comprehensive and accurate data possible. 

 

Contact Information and Personal Details

In addition to information used exclusively to submit your loan application, we ask for certain details, such as email addresses and personal details including whether you are a first-time mortgage buyer and whether you rent or own. We use this information to customize and personalize our site to meet your needs. 

 

When you visit the Site, we automatically collect certain information about your device, including information about your web browser, IP address, time zone, and some of the cookies that are installed on your device. Additionally, as you browse the Site, we collect information about the individual web pages that you view, what websites or search terms referred you to the Site, and information about how you interact with the Site. We refer to this automatically-collected information as “Device Information.”

 

We collect Device Information using the following technologies:

 

    - “Cookies” are data files that are placed on your device or computer and often include an anonymous unique identifier. For more information about cookies, and how to disable cookies, visit http://www.allaboutcookies.org.

    - “Log files” track actions occurring on the Site, and collect data including your IP address, browser type, Internet service provider, referring/exit pages, and date/time stamps.

    - “Web beacons,” “tags,” and “pixels” are electronic files used to record information about how you browse the Site.

 

SHARING YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION

 

We share your Personal Information with third parties to help us use your Personal Information, as described above. We use Google Analytics, for example, to help us understand how our customers use the Site--you can read more about how Google uses your Personal Information here:  https://www.google.com/intl/en/policies/privacy/. You can also opt-out of Google Analytics here: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout.

 

Finally, we may also share your Personal Information 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.

 

BEHAVIOURAL ADVERTISING

As described above, we use your Personal Information to provide you with targeted advertisements or marketing communications we believe may be of interest to you.  For more information about how targeted advertising works, you can visit the Network Advertising Initiative’s (“NAI”) educational page at http://www.networkadvertising.org/understanding-online-advertising/how-does-it-work.

 

You can opt out of targeted advertising by:

    FACEBOOK - https://www.facebook.com/settings/?tab=ads

    GOOGLE - https://www.google.com/settings/ads/anonymous

 

Additionally, you can opt out of some of these services by visiting the Digital Advertising Alliance’s opt-out portal at:  http://optout.aboutads.info/.

 

DO NOT TRACK

Please note that we do not alter our Site’s data collection and use practices when we see a Do Not Track signal from your browser.

 

DATA RETENTION

When you place an order through the Site, we will maintain your Order Information for our records unless and until you ask us to delete this information.

 

Service Profiles

At the same time, there are many commonalities among our customers. We will occasionally compile statistics and other metrics across our customer base, but none of this information will contain personally sensitive information. For example, we may decide to build a new section on our site exclusively for current renters if our customer profile shows that 75% of our typical users are currently renting. In any case, none of your personal information is associated with these metrics.

We may share this generic service profile information with our partners, affiliates, and potential investors in order to describe our client base to better serve you. Having access to this data means that we can make better decisions about how we run our business, and will help us determine what will best serve you, our valued customers.

 

Security

Our privacy policies are unimportant if we cannot maintain the security of our systems. All of our sensitive information forms are submitted and stored securely using tried and proven industry standard protocols.

While no security system is 100% airtight (you should be wary of anyone making that claim) we have taken every reasonable, prudent, and effective step to maintain the security of our systems.

 

Data Communications Security

Information you send us must pass through your own computer, your own Internet Service Provider, our Internet Provider, and eventually to us. As soon as the personal information that you have put into your browser leaves your computer, it is encrypted using "SSL" (Secure Sockets Layer) technology. Any network between you and us, including your ISP and our ISP, will only see garbled encrypted data if they were to "eavesdrop" on our connection. 

 

Once we receive your encrypted information, our system decrypts your data, and places it into a password-protected database on a secured network that is again accessed through another password-protected system, located behind a firewall. This triple protection is the digital equivalent of our "Fort Knox" that protects your sensitive data. The only other way to get at this information is to use our Web site and the administration password that you supply during the account creation process. This is why you should keep this password in a safe place, and why we only send your password to your e-mail address. However, as soon as we send your password in e-mail, you should immediately log in and change your password to prevent someone on the Internet from obtaining your password, and hence, access to your private information.

 

HOW DO WE USE YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION?

 

We use the Personal Information to:

Communicate with you;

When in line with the preferences you have shared with us, provide you with information or advertising relating to our services.

We use the Device Information that we collect to help us screen for potential risk and fraud (in particular, your IP address), and more generally to improve and optimize our Site (for example, by generating analytics about how our customers browse and interact with the Site, and to assess the success of our marketing and advertising campaigns).

 

OTHER INFORMATION WE MAY COLLECT

This data will be used for the following purposes:

The following explanation is provided for why this data is collected:

Our Web Server collects this information to provide metrics regarding site usage and load levels.

 

How we use Cookies

Cookies are a technology which can be used to provide you with tailored information from a Web site. A cookie is an element of data that a Web site can send to your browser, which may then store it on your system. You can set your browser to notify you when you receive a cookie, giving you the chance to decide whether to accept it.

 

It is our goal to provide the most intuitive and hassle-free experience at our site. As a result, we use a technology called a "cookie." The way a cookie functions is that our site, after authenticating who you are by having you verify your e-mail address and password, passes a unique cookie to your computer. Once your computer obtains this cookie, it will present this cookie back to us. Our site checks to see if the cookie that you are presenting to us matches what we initially gave you. If it does, then we allow you access to our site without having to re-enter your username. This cookie only exists while the browser is running. It is always a good idea to quit the browser (or restart the computer) if you share your computer with others.

We also use cookies to help keep track of the representative you are working with (if any). This cookie contains no private information, and will remain on your computer even if you quit the browser.

 

Our site makes use of cookies. Cookies are used for the following purposes:

- Site administration

- Completing the user's current activity

- User analysis

- Individual-based decision-making

The Good Cookie.

Like any technology, the use of it determines its value. Cookies are a convenient way to avoid having to type in your login every time you visit the site. What the above scenario allows is the ability of our Web site's "cyber bouncer" to be able to say, "I've seen you before, you can come in." This is a convenience that many of our clients use and appreciate.

The Bad Cookie.

However, there are cases when you may not want to use a cookie. For example, if multiple people use your computer, it is possible for someone to sit down after you have gotten up, visit your history or bookmarks, visit our site, and have access to your sensitive data on our Web site. This is because our "cyber bouncer" is only sophisticated enough to know that your computer has been trusted. There is no way for us to determine that you are still at your computer. The best thing you can do is quit the browser when you are finished; the cookie will be removed.

This privacy statement applies solely to information collected by our websites.

We send all new users a welcoming email to verify password and username. Established members will occasionally receive information on products, services, special deals, and a newsletter. Out of respect for the privacy of our users we present the option to not receive these types of communications. Please see our choice and opt-out below.
