Facts: What Do We Do with Your Personal Information?
Companies choose how they share your personal information. Federal law gives consumers the right to limit some but not all sharing. Federal law also requires us to tell you how we collect, share, and protect your personal information. Please read this notice carefully to understand what we do.
The types of personal information we collect and share depend on the product or service you have with us. This information can include, but is not limited to:
- Information you enter on our website, such as:
- Social Security number
- Credit history
- Employment and income information
- Banking account information
- Contact information

- Credit history and account balances
- Log files such as:
- internet protocol (IP) addresses
- browser type
- Internet Service Provider (ISP)
- date/time stamp
- referring/exit pages
- number of clicks
Companies need to share customers’ personal information to run their everyday business. In the section below, we list the reasons companies can share their customers’ personal information; the reasons we choose to share; and whether you can limit this sharing.

What We Do
How do we protect your personal information?
To protect your personal information from unauthorized access and use, we use security measures that comply with federal law. These measures include computer safeguards and secured files and buildings.
How do we collect your personal information?
We collect your personal information, for example, when you:
- Create an account
- Request a loan
- Subscribe to our newsletter
- Provide information on our form

We may also obtain information about you from third parties, including credit reports, information about your home, and demographic information.
Why can’t you limit all sharing?
Federal law gives you the right to limit only:

- Affiliates from using your information to market to you
- Sharing for non affiliates to market to you
State laws and individual companies may give you additional rights to limit sharing.
