Collection of Your Information
We may collect and store various information about you including, for example, information that you provide to us, information that we automatically collect through your use of the Service, and information from publicly available sources or third parties, as further detailed below. We will use and share any information that we collect from or about you in accordance with this policy, which offers you certain choices with respect to the use and sharing of your personal information.
Information you provide us directly
The information we collect from you will vary depending on the product or service requested. We may ask for information such as your first and last name, birth date, telephone number, email address, outstanding loan balances, social security number or part thereof, income, employment history and other details related to your financial situation. All of the information that we collect from you directly via the Service is identified in the forms or other places where you respond to questions, or where you indicate preferences, either online or through our customer service representatives.
We may also retain any messages you send through the Service, including customer service correspondence (via telephone, chat, text, email or otherwise). Calls to us may be recorded or monitored for quality assurance, customer service and training purposes.
Information That Is Collected Automatically
In addition to the information you provide to us directly, we may automatically collect information about your use of the Service, as described below.
Log file information. When you use our Service, our servers may automatically record certain log file information. These server logs may include information such as your web request, Internet Protocol ("IP") address, browser type, browser language, operating system, platform type, device attributes, referring pages and URLs, number of clicks, how you interact with links, pages viewed and the order of those pages, the data and time you used the Service, errors you encountered, files you download, and other information.
Location information. When you use the Service, we may automatically collect general location information (e.g., IP address, city/state and or zip code associated with an IP address) from your computer or mobile device. Please note that if you disable such features, you may not be able to access or receive some or all of the features made available via the Service.
Web analytics. We use third-party Web analytics services on our Service, such as Google Analytics. These service providers help us analyze how users use the Services. The information collected by the technology will be disclosed to or collected directly by these service providers. To prevent Google Analytics from using information for analytics, a user may install the Google Analytics Opt-Out Browser Add-on.
We may use information that is collected automatically in a number of ways, including: (a) to remember information so that you will not have to re-enter it; (b) to provide custom, personalized content; (c) to provide our Service; (d) to monitor aggregate metrics such as total number of visitors, traffic, and demographic patterns; (e) to diagnose and fix problems; and (f) to deliver advertising to you.
Information from Third-Party Sources
We may receive information about you from publicly and commercially available sources, as permitted by law, which we may combine with other information we receive from or about you. For example, when you give us permission to conduct a soft credit inquiry we will obtain your credit report from a third party. Likewise, when you apply for a loan, either we or another broker or lender may conduct a hard credit inquiry. Similarly, we may use your address to retrieve public records, estimate the value of your home or your taxes, and make processes more convenient and streamlined.
Do Not Track Signals
Some Internet browsers may be configured to send "Do Not Track" signals to the online services that you visit. We currently do not respond to "Do Not Track" or similar signals.

We or Providers may call, text or email you, which may include newsletters, marketing or advertising about products or services provided by us or Providers, or certain Service-related information (e.g., account verification, changes/updates to features of the Service, technical and security notices, etc.).
- To provide personalized services, including content, ads, products or services, either through Company, Providers or a third party marketing partner.
- To conduct surveys and offer sweepstakes, drawings, and similar promotions.
- To locate or try to locate the same unique users across multiple browsers or devices, or work with providers that do this, in order to better tailor advertising, content, and features, and provide you with a seamless experience.

- For certain operational purposes, for example, to perform audits and quality control.
- To protect, enforce, or defend the legal rights, privacy, safety, security, or property of Company, its affiliates, employees or agents, or other users and to comply with applicable law.

Providers. We may share your information with brokers, lenders, agents, installers and other providers of products or services ("Providers") in connection with providing the Services to you, such that they may provide you with information about offers (prequalified or not) and information related to the products and services they offer. For example, if you express interest in a mortgage, we may share your name, address, email, phone number and other information with one or more lenders or brokers so that they may contact you about that mortgage.

Other parties when required by law or as necessary to protect our users and services. Company may share your information where required to do so by law or subpoena or if we reasonably believe that such action is necessary to (a) comply with the law and the reasonable requests of law enforcement; and/or (b) exercise or protect the rights, property, security, or safety of Company, our users or others.

How We Store and Protect Your Information
Company takes technical and organizational measures to protect your data against accidental, unauthorized or unlawful destruction, loss, alteration or disclosure. These measures vary depending on the sensitivity of the information we have collected from you. However, no method of transmission of data or of electronic storage is absolutely secure. Therefore, while we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security. Also, we are not responsible for the measures taken (or not taken) by any third party.
To protect your privacy and security, we may require a unique password to verify your identity before granting access to your account. You are responsible for maintaining the secrecy of your passwords and account information, and for controlling access to your communications devices and software, at all times.

Other Opt-Outs. As required by law from time to time, we may offer you certain other choices with respect to the use and sharing of your personal information, including the right to opt-out when applicable.
How Long We Keep Your Information
Following termination or deactivation of your account, Company may retain your profile information for an additional period of time for backup, archival, or audit purposes. In certain circumstances, we are required by government regulations to store various information. In order to comply with those requirements, we may be unable to delete your information from our database until the legally required retention period expires.
