We respect your privacy and take your financial privacy very seriously. We attempt to minimize the information we collect to that which is required by law and necessary to the financing process. During the course of processing your application, we accumulate non-public personal financial information from you and from other sources about your income, assets, and your credit history in order to allow us to make an informed decision about granting you credit. We restrict access to your non-public personal information to only those employees who need to know that information to provide products and services to you. We maintain physical, electronic, and procedural safe guards that comply with federal regulations to guard your non-public personal information.
Information Collected by Lender
When you submit a loan application to us, you should know that as part of processing your application and/or servicing your loan, we collect personal and financial information about you from the following sources:
• Information we receive from you, in the form of applications or other related forms;
• Information about your transactions with us and our affiliates or others;
• Information we receive from consumer reporting agencies. This additional information is needed as part of the mortgage process.
We recognize the sensitivity of the above information and, as such, will not share personal and financial information with affiliates (an “affiliate” is a company that Lender owns or controls, or that is commonly owned or controlled by Lender’s parent holding company), non-affiliates or third parties, except as permitted by you, or as necessary to complete the mortgage lending process. Our affiliates may include financial service providers, such as title insurance agencies.
We may share personal and financial information about you (as described above) with either affiliates or non-affiliates as otherwise permitted by law. Such instances could include (but are not limited to) reports filed with certain government agencies or documents produced in response to a court order or subpoena.
