  1. How Your Personally Identifiable Information is Used and Shared

We ask you for PII when you interact with the Website. We value your privacy and have taken the necessary precautions to be in compliance with relevant legislation, including, without limitation, the California Online Privacy Protection Act.

Broadly speaking, the information collected by and through your access to and use of this Website will be used to assist you with your inquiry, to fulfill your request and for solicitation purposes with respect to third party products, services, offers or promotions. Such collected information may also be used for other purposes for which you have given your consent, to prevent fraud, or as may otherwise be permitted by applicable law. To those ends, you expressly authorize Company to share such collected information as set forth herein.

We use the PII collected from you to facilitate your request for access to the third party providers of the products and/or services you are interested in. This may include passing your PII on to a third party lender with whom we have a contract to provide such products and/or services.

Company may share your PII with third parties who help us in the delivery the services you have requested and to companies/individuals we employ to perform technical functions on our behalf. These companies and individuals may not share that information with any other third party or use that data for any other purpose. We may also use your PII to resolve disputes, troubleshoot technical problems, enforce our agreements with you and to enable Company and/or third parties to personalize your Internet experience. We may also share the information we collect from you with consumer reporting and related agencies.

We may disclose any/all information if legally required to do so, or at our discretion pursuant to a request from a governmental entity, or if we believe in good faith that such action is necessary to: (a) conform to legal requirements or comply with legal process; (b) protect our rights or property or our affiliated companies; (c) prevent a crime or protect national security; or (d) protect the personal safety of users or the public.

We may also disclose and transfer any/all information to a third party who acquires any or all of our business, whether such acquisition is by way of merger, consolidation or purchase of all or a substantial portion of our assets. In addition, in the event we become the subject of an insolvency proceeding, whether voluntary or involuntary, we or our liquidator, administrator, receiver or administrative receiver may sell, license or otherwise dispose of such information in a transaction approved by the court. You may be notified of the sale of all or a substantial portion of our business to a third party by email or through a prominent notice posted on the Website. In each of these situations, the recipients of your data may potentially be located in any country in the world.

First and Third Party Marketing

Company expressly reserves the right to sell or transfer your PII to independent third parties, including, without limitation, third party lenders, advertisers in Company’s network, independent companies or organizations with whom we have a marketing relationship, information re-sellers and third party marketers, some of who may sell information to advertisers and retailers that may present you offers for goods or services (collectively, “Third Party Marketers”). Your information may also be sold by and amongst Third Party Marketers. The foregoing may involve the use of technology information. Separate lists may be maintained for different purposes. If you wish to end your inclusion in a particular list, you need only to follow the instructions at the end of each communication to unsubscribe from the particular list.

Company and/or Third Party Marketers may target advertising to you using direct mail, email, telemarketing calls (including SMS text messages), and/or targeted online banner advertising,. Company and/or Third-Party Marketers may match your PII to make and improve profiles of you, to track your online browsing habits over time and across different websites on the Internet, to show you targeted advertising for products and/or services, and/or to determine which areas of the Internet are most frequently visited.

Although our contractual arrangement may limit how such third parties can use your PII, we do not control the privacy practices of these third parties. Be aware that the Third Party Marketers may retain or use your PII whether or not you use their products and/or services and you should contact these third parties directly concerning their privacy and information sharing practices which may differ from ours. If you have any questions or wish to remove your information from a third party’s database, you will need to contact that third party, directly.

By visiting and/or supplying your PII at this Website, you also agree to allow us to provide aggregated anonymous data about you to third parties so that they can understand the kinds of visitors to the Website and in order to offer you products and services. This includes demographic information and behavioral information.

  1. Company and Third-Party Cookies, Web Beacons, Pixel Tags, Log Files and Online Behavioral Technologies

The Website and email messages may contain first-party (Company-related) and Third Party Marketer (e.g., advertisers and advertisements) cookies, web beacons, pixel tags, browser analysis tools and web server logs that enable Company and/or Third Party Marketers to track your online behavior, collect information regarding your operating system and browser type, record what webpage or email you viewed, track the IP address of the device you use to interact with the applicable online service, record when you open or click on a particular online advertisement link or webpage, and additionally for other information gathering purposes such as the language your system uses and the country and time zone of your device.

A cookie is a small file uniquely assigned to you by a webpage server when you visit a webpage or click on a link and can assist in associating your information to a unique profile. Cookies are stored in web server logs and also in web cookies kept on your computer, which are then transmitted back to us and/or Third Party Marketers by your computer. They store information about your account, preferences, your use of the Website and your online browsing habits. They allow us and/or Third Party Marketers to recognize you when you return, and track and target your interests in order to provide a customized experience. They also assist with the provision of a customized browsing experience and with the detection of certain kinds of fraud.

Some cookies are temporary, whereas others may be configured to last longer. “Session” cookies are temporary cookies used for various reasons, such as to manage page views. Your browser usually erases session cookies once you exit your browser. “Persistent” cookies are more permanent cookies that are stored on your computer even beyond when you exit your browser. Your browser preferences can be modified to accept or reject all cookies, or request a notification when a cookie is set.

Pixel tags and web beacons are tiny graphic images placed on website pages or in emails that allow Company and/or Third-Party Marketers to determine whether you have performed specific actions. When you access these pages or open email messages, the pixel tags and web beacons generate a notice of that action. These tools permit the measurement of responses to communications and improve related promotions. You may read more about web beacons at www.webopedia.com/TERM/W/Web_beacon.html.

Log files include IP addresses, browser type, Internet service provider, referring/exit pages, platform type, date/time stamp, and number of clicks to analyze trends, administer a website, track user’s movement in the aggregate, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use.

As set forth herein, Company and/or Third Party Marketers collect many different types of information from cookies and other technologies, including, without limitation, what website you were visiting before you came to the Website, the website you visit after you leave the Website, and other activities or yours over time and across third-party websites and online services.

The use of cookies by third parties on the Website and in email messages is subject to the privacy policies of those Third Party Marketers and is not covered by this Privacy Policy.

  1. Managing Your Privacy

We believe that you benefit from a more personalized experience when we know more about you and what you like. However, you can limit the information you provide to us and thereby limit the communications that we and/or Third Party Marketers send to you.

To prevent first and third party online tracking from cookies, web beacons and other technologies on a webpage, or within an email message, for example, banner advertisements, do not visit the Website, utilize a changing IP address and do not click on or interact with any advertisements or links.

  1. Security of Your Personally Identifiable Information

To prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy and ensure the correct use of information we gather online, Company stores your PII in a database on secure systems. We have put in place appropriate physical, electronic and managerial security procedures to protect against the loss, misuse and alteration of the information under our control.

Access to this information is strictly limited, and not accessible to the public. All of our visitors’ PII is restricted in our offices. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job are granted access to PII. Our employees are dedicated to ensuring the security and privacy of all user information, to the extent reasonably possible. Employees who do not adhere to our firm policies are subject to disciplinary action.

But notwithstanding such measures, Company cannot guarantee that its security measures will prevent Company computers from being illegally accessed, and the data on them stolen or altered, and Company assumes no responsibility for such actions. You may request that your information be modified or deleted as detailed below.

In compliance with applicable federal and state laws, we shall notify you and any applicable regulatory agencies in the event that we learn of an information security breach with respect to your PII. Third Party Marketers are contractually obligated to also protect your PII.
