Our Commitment to Privacy

Your privacy is most important to us. We provide this notice explaining our online information practices and the choices you can make about the way your information is collected and used for your own personal protection. Our notice is available on our homepage and at every point where applicable information may be requested.

Our Commitment to Privacy

To prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and ensure the correct use of information, we have put in place to properly safeguard and secure the information we collect online by physical, electronic, or managerial procedures. The security of personal information is important to us. We follow accepted industry standards to protect such personal information which has been submitted to us, during transmission and after we receive it. However, no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure. There is no absolute guarantee. When you enter sensitive information on our order forms, we encrypt the transmission of that information using secure socket layer technology (SSL).

The Way We Use Information

By agreeing to this Privacy Policy or by use of this website, you authorize us to obtain other information about you from third-parties, such as your Social Security Number, where such information was incompletely or improperly filled out on the registration or application form. Such third-parties include, but are not limited to, consumer reporting agencies, consumer credit bureaus and other outside parties as permitted or required by applicable laws. Any and all information that we collect from you and from third-parties may be used to determine eligibility for product, service or other offer. If you choose to submit information, we may use it to determine your financial status. If you do not provide such information, we may also use other provided information for the purpose of verifying eligibility for a loan or other programs, offers or services. Upon qualification, your loan-specific financial information will be stored and utilized by an applicable lender pursuant to the terms of that lender’s Privacy Policy.

If you choose to provide personal information, it will possibly be used and/or shared with trusted third parties such as direct lenders and/or other financial service providers, credit bureaus, and for marketing products and services that you might find of interest. We reserve the right to share, rent, sell or otherwise disclose your information with third parties in accordance with applicable laws and as described herein. These third party businesses may include, but are not limited to: providers of direct marketing services and applications, including lookup and reference, data enhancement, suppression and validation; e-mail marketers; wireless services providers and telemarketers. Information collected by us may be added to our databases and used for future instant messaging, telemarketing, SMS text-messaging, e-mails or postal mailings regarding site updates, new products and services, upcoming events, and/or status of orders and/or loans placed online. By using this website, you agree that you may be contacted in any manner contemplated in this section even if your number is found on a do-not-call registry or similar registry. We may also employ other companies and individuals to perform certain functions on our behalf. Examples include sending direct and electronic mail, removing duplicate information from customer lists, analyzing data, and providing marketing analysis. These agents have access to our users’ personal information as needed to perform their functions for our sites, but may not be used for their own marketing purposes. In addition, we may also disclose your personal information as required by law, such as to comply with a subpoena, or similar legal process.

You agree that by submitting your information at the website, you agree to receive mobile marketing including, but not limited to, text-message based marketing (“SMS Messages”), from us and our third party advertisers and marketers. You further agree that based on your individual carrier and plan, you may incur charges associated with such SMS Messages and that you agree to be solely responsible for such charges. You represent that you are at least 18 years of age and the owner or authorized user of the wireless device on which messages will be received, and that you are authorized to approve the applicable charges. Should you hereafter choose to opt-out of receiving SMS Messages from the individual sender, you may opt-out by texting “STOP” or “OPT-OUT” as specifically set forth in the communication. Notwithstanding that your mobile telephone number may be listed on state and/or federal do-not-call registries, we retain the right to contact you via SMS Messages. In addition, by registering and/or using the website, you agree that such act constitutes an inquiry and/or application for purposes of the Amended Telemarketing Sales Rule (16 CFR 310 et seq.), as amended from time to time (the “Rule”). Notwithstanding that your telephone number may be listed at the Federal Trade Commission’s Do-Not-Call List, we retain the right to contact you via telemarketing in accordance with the Rule.

We may also use your personal, demographic and profile data to improve our website, for statistical analysis, for marketing and promotional purposes, and for editorial or feedback purposes. Information collected by us may be added to our databases and used for future e-mails, telemarketing or postal mailings regarding site updates, new products and services, upcoming events, and/or status of orders placed online. See “Your Opt-Out Rights” below.

Surveys or Contests

From time-to-time, we may provide you the opportunity to participate in surveys on our site. If you participate, we will request certain personally identifiable information from you. Participation in these surveys or contests is completely voluntary and you therefore have a choice whether or not to disclose this information. The requested information typically includes contact information (such as name, telephone number, email and shipping address), and demographic information (such as zip code). We use this information to improve and personalize our sites, and/or monitor traffic to our site.

Electronic Disclosure

By submitting your information via the Internet, you agree to receive certain notifications, disclosures and/or documents electronically. This Consent to Electronic Disclosures applies to the information you are providing on this Site and any other communications we or any third party lender may provide to you. By submitting your information you agree to receive all such notifications, disclosures and/or documents from us or any third party lender in electronic form or online in accordance with this document. You may withdraw your consent prior to submitting your information by exiting the website or by closing your browser. However, you will not be able to submit your information if you withdraw your consent prior to submission. Following submission, you may be able to withdraw your consent to future electronic disclosures from a third party lender by contacting the lender directly, but due to rules regarding the timing of delivery of disclosures that need to be made to you, you acknowledge that an opt-out notice may not be received and acted upon by such third party lender prior to such disclosures being delivered to you electronically. We do not process opt-out communications for third party lenders, and each third party lender establishes its own rules regarding opting out of future electronic communications and disclosures.

All notifications, disclosures and/or documents that we or any third party lender provide to you in electronic format will be provided either (i) via e-mail; (ii) by access to a secure customer service website which will be provided to you in an e-mail notice sent to you when the documents are available; (iii) by posting on this Site or the lender’s site; (iv) by SMS text messaging to your mobile device; or (v) by posting on a website designated for that purpose. All notifications, disclosures and/or documents provided in electronic or paper format from us or any third party lender to you will be considered “in writing,” and you should print a copy for your records. You may obtain any notifications, disclosures and/or documents in paper form without charge from us by printing them yourself from our website or the appropriate third party lender’s website when available. To access, view and retain the notifications, disclosures, and/or documents available to you in electronic form, you must have Internet access, sufficient electronic storage capacity, an e-mail account with Internet service provider e-mail software.

You agree and intend the federal Electronic Signatures in Global and National Commerce Act to apply to (i) your consent to receive notifications, disclosures and/or documents in electronic form; (ii) the information you provide, and (iii) any of our or third party lenders’ ability to conduct business with you by electronic means.

By completing and submitting your information, you (i) agree to provide us with an accurate and complete e-mail address and other required information requested on this Site; (ii) confirm your consent to receive notifications, disclosures and/or documents from us and any third party lender in electronic format; (iii) affirmatively demonstrate your ability to access the notifications, disclosures and/or documents in electronic form; (iv) confirm that you have provided a current e-mail address at which electronic notifications, documents and/or disclosures can be sent to you; (v) acknowledge that you have read and reviewed the terms contained in this Electronic Disclosure section; and (vi) agree to the terms contained in this Electronic Disclosure section.

We and any third party lender, reserve the right, in our sole discretion, to discontinue electronic provision of notifications and/or documents. You will be provided with notice of any such termination or change as required by law.

To facilitate electronic commerce, to reduce the expense of records storage, and to obtain the benefits of faster access to records, you acknowledge and agree that all records may be stored electronically; and that neither we nor any third party lender will retain and have no obligation to retain any original or electronic documents for any period of time beyond the regulatory requirements. This applies to all notifications, disclosures and/or documentation. You further acknowledge and understand that all original and electronic notification, disclosures and/or documentation will be routinely destroyed, but not before the period of time designated by regulatory requirements. Records may be stored electronically via imaging, scanning, filming or other technology used for the storage of documentation via internal processes or third-party processors that we or any third party lender approve for these services. You agree that such storage shall be secure, and further agree that such records shall for all purposes be recognized and admissible in evidence or otherwise to prove the agreements, rights and obligations of the parties pursuant to any such records. We will retain your information for as long as needed to provide you services. If you wish to request that we no longer use your information to provide you services please contact us at [email protected]. We will retain and use your information as necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements.

The information and services provided by us or our affiliates, sponsors, and advertisers are not intended to be viewed by persons under 18 years old.

Use of Tracking Technologies

Our websites and mobile sites use cookies to enhance and personalize your online experience and to enable our websites or mobile sites to recognize you as a previous visitor. A cookie is a small amount of data, which often includes an anonymous unique identifier that is sent to your browser from a website’s computer and stored on your computer’s hard drive. You can adjust the settings on your browser to erase or block such technologies from your computer if you want to, but if you do so, you will not be able to use or access the moneymutual.com Web Services.

Each website can send its own cookie to your browser if your browser’s preferences allow it, but (to protect your privacy) your browser only permits a website to access the cookies it has already sent to you, not the cookies sent to you by other sites. Many sites do this in order to track online traffic flows. Cookies record information about your online preferences and may be tied to your personally identifiable information such as your email address. Users have the opportunity to set their computers to accept all cookies, to notify them when a cookie is issued, or not to receive cookies at any time. Each browser is different. Check the “Help” menu of your browser to learn how to change the cookie preferences.

As most websites practice, we also gather certain information automatically and store the data in log files. This information includes internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp, and clickstream data.

We use this non-identifying information to analyze trends, administer the site, track users’ movements around the site and gather demographic information about our users. We do not link automatically-collected data to personal identifiable information.
