“Do Not Track” Requests
Some web browsers (including Safari, Internet Explorer, Firefox, and Chrome) incorporate a “Do Not Track” (DNT) or similar feature that signals to websites that a visitor does not want to have his/her online activity and behavior tracked. If an online service elects to respond to a particular DNT signal, the service may refrain from collecting certain personal information about the browser’s user. While our site responds to DNT requests, we utilize third party businesses that collect personally identifiable information about an individual consumer’s online activities over time and across different websites when a consumer uses this site that do not respond to DNT signals. Because of this, we do not fully respond to DNT requests.

• See what data we have about you, if any.
• Correct any data we have about you.

We take precautions to protect your information. When you submit sensitive information via the website, your information is protected both online and offline. Wherever we collect sensitive information (such as social security number), that information is encrypted and transmitted to us in a secure way. While we use encryption to protect sensitive information transmitted online, we also protect your information offline. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, customer service or loan origination activities) are granted access to personally identifiable information. The computers/servers in which we store personally identifiable information are kept in a secure environment. However, no electronic security system can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. We take your online privacy seriously and you can be assured that we will do everything in our power to ensure that any information provided by you will be kept confidential.
