Website Services

It is important that you are aware that we are not a seller of any products or services to users of this Website and Company is not a lender or provider of any financial, insurance or other services. Our Website serves merely as a marketing and matching platform between users and our network of partners (the “Partners”) that offer or market products and services, which may include, depending upon which of our websites you visit, payday loans, auto loans, educational loans, mortgage products, insurance products, home contractor services, or other products and services (the “Offerings”). In order to receive information about the Offerings or to apply for the Offerings, you will be requested to submit Personally-Identifying Information via our online application forms (“Your Application Information”). Depending upon the type of Offering you are applying for, Your Application Information may include any of the following, in addition to other information: your name, address, telephone number (work, home, mobile or other), email address, date of birth, driver’s license number, citizenship status, income, social security number, bank account information, employment information, home ownership information and active military information.

By submitting Your Application Information via the Website, (i) you acknowledge and expressly authorize us to transfer Your Application Information directly to our Partners and (ii) you expressly request us and each of the Partners with which Your Application Information is shared to contact you (directly or through third party marketing agents) by any means (including, without limitation, email, telephone (via home and mobile numbers, whether utilizing an autodialer or pre-recorded messaging or other automated features), facsimile, SMS, direct mail, and website redirect). Your agreement to be contacted by the means stated is not a condition for your purchase of any product or service. If your browser is redirected to a Partner’s website, or you are otherwise contacted in any manner by a Partner, then all subsequent interactions with the Partners, are subject to each such Partner’s privacy policy, terms of use, and other policies and/or terms provided by that Partner. You acknowledge and agree that we and the Partners may verify Your Application Information against national databases that track similar consumer transactions, perform credit checks with credit reporting bureaus/consumer credit bureaus, and verify your social security number and other information contained in Your Application Information. Any and all information that is collected from third-parties may be used to determine if you are eligible for an Offering. By submitting Your Application Information, you agree to allow us and Partners to review, verify, and research Your Application Information in such manner. You understand that Partners may retain Your Application Information, whether or not you are qualified for an Offering with them, in accordance with such Partners’ privacy policies. Your use of this Website is an agreement that you may be contacted in any manner outlined in this Agreement, even if your number is found on a do-not-call registry or similar registry.

Users of the Website are under no obligation to provide Company with Personally-Identifying Information of any kind, with the caveat that a user’s refusal to do so may prevent the user from using certain Website features.

You authorize us to use your information to obtain other information about you (for example, your social security number) from third parties when Your Application Information is incompletely or improperly filled out on our registration form. 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. If you choose to provide information, such as your social security number, we may use that information to determine your financial status. If you do not provide such information, we may also use other information that you provided for the purpose of verifying your eligibility for a loan or for any other programs, offer, or services.

In certain circumstances, Company acts as a limited agent for the actual third party lender or seller of the products and/or services available at or through the Website. In these circumstances: (a) you will be redirected to the applicable third party lender’s or seller’s website after you have completed entering your information; (b) we will collect and send your Personally-Identifying Information to the respective third party lender or seller in connection with completing your application or purchase from the third party lenders or seller, as applicable; and (c) your application or purchase will subject you to the third party lender’s or seller’s privacy policy, as applicable.

Marketing Communications. Unless users opt-out from receiving Company marketing materials upon registration, Company will email users about products and services that Company believes may be of interest to them and Company also will provide users’ email information to third parties, so that those third parties may directly contact users about additional products and services.

GATHERING, USE AND DISCLOSURE OF NON-PERSONALLY-IDENTIFYING INFORMATION
Users of the Website Generally

“Non-Personally-Identifying Information” is information that, without the aid of additional information, cannot be directly associated with a specific person. Like most website operators, Company gathers from users of the Website Non-Personally-Identifying Information of the sort that Web browsers, depending on their settings, may make available. That information includes the user’s Internet Protocol (IP) address, operating system and browser type, and the locations of the Web pages the user views right before arriving at, while navigating and immediately after leaving the Website. Company analyzes Non-Personally-Identifying Information gathered from users of the Website to help Company better understand how the Website is being used. By identifying patterns and trends in usage, Company is able to better design the Website to improve users’ experiences, both in terms of content and ease of use. From time to time, Company may also release the Non-Personally-Identifying Information gathered from Website users in the aggregate, such as by publishing a report on trends in the usage of the Website.

We may also periodically obtain both Personally-Identifying Information and Non-Personally-Identifying Information about you from other Company-affiliated businesses, business partners, contractors and other third parties and add it to our account information or other information we have collected. Examples of information that we may receive include: updated address information, purchase history, and additional demographic information.
Web Cookies

A “Web Cookie” is a string of information that a website stores on a user’s computer, and that the user’s browser provides to the website each time the user submits a query to the site. Company uses Web Cookies to track the pages that users visit during each Website session, both to help Company improve users’ experiences and to help Company understand how the Website is being used. As with other Non-Personally-Identifying Information gathered from users of the Website, Company analyzes and discloses in aggregated form information gathered using Web Cookies, so as to help Company, its partners and others better understand how the Website is being used. Company does not attempt to link information gathered using Web Cookies to Personally-Identifying Information. COMPANY USERS WHO DO NOT WISH TO HAVE WEB COOKIES PLACED ON THEIR COMPUTERS SHOULD SET THEIR BROWSERS TO REFUSE WEB COOKIES BEFORE ACCESSING THE WEBSITE, WITH THE UNDERSTANDING THAT CERTAIN FEATURES OF THE WEBSITE MAY NOT FUNCTION PROPERLY WITHOUT THE AID OF WEB COOKIES. WEBSITE USERS WHO REFUSE WEB COOKIES ASSUME ALL RESPONSIBILITY FOR ANY RESULTING LOSS OF FUNCTIONALITY.
Third Party Providers

We use third-party advertising companies to serve ads when you visit the Website. These companies may use information (not including any Personally-Identifying Information) about your visits to this and other websites that are contained in Web Cookies in order to provide advertisements about goods and services of interest to you. Using a tool created by the Network Advertising Initiative, you can opt out of several third party ad servers’ and networks’ Web Cookies simultaneously. If you would like more information about this practice and to know your choices about not having this information used by these companies, please follow the following link: https://networkadvertising.org/managing/opt_out.asp. Please contact us if you would like to know the identity of the third-party advertising companies we are currently using to serve ads.
Web Beacons

A “Web Beacon” is an object that is embedded in a web page that is usually invisible to the user and allows website operators to check whether a user has viewed a particular web page or an email. Company may use Web Beacons on the Website and in emails to count users who have visited particular pages, viewed emails, and to deliver co-branded services. Web Beacons are not used to access users’ Personally-Identifying Information; they are a technique Company may use to compile aggregated statistics about Website usage. Web Beacons collect only a limited set of information including a Web Cookie number, time and date of a page or email view, and a description of the page or email on which the Web Beacon resides. You may not decline Web Beacons, however, they can be rendered ineffective by declining all Web Cookies or modifying your browser setting to notify you each time a Web Cookie is tendered and permit you to accept or decline Web Cookies on an individual basis.
Aggregated and Non-Personally-Identifying Information

We may share aggregated and Non-Personally Identifying Information we collect under any of the above circumstances. We may also share it with third parties and our affiliate companies to develop and deliver targeted advertising on our Website and on websites of third parties. We may combine Non-Personally Identifying Information we collect with additional Non-Personally Identifying Information collected from other sources. We also may share aggregated information with third parties, including advisors, advertisers and investors, for the purpose of conducting general business analysis. For example, we may tell our advertisers the number of visitors to our Website and the most popular features or services accessed. This information does not contain any Personally-Identifying Information and may be used to develop website content and services that we hope you and other users will find of interest and to target content and advertising.
CONTESTS, GIVEAWAYS AND SURVEYS

From time to time, Company may offer Website users the opportunity to participate in contests, giveaways and other promotions. Any information submitted in connection with such activities will be treated in accordance with this Privacy Policy. From time to time, Company may also ask Website users to participate in surveys designed to help Company improve the Website. Any Personally-Identifying Information provided to Company in connection with any survey will be used only in relation to that survey, and will be disclosed to third parties not bound by this Privacy Policy only in non-personally-identifying, aggregated form.
COLLECTION AND USE OF INFORMATION BY THIRD PARTIES GENERALLY

Company contractually prohibits its contractors, affiliates, vendors and suppliers from disclosing Personally-Identifying Information received from Company, other than in accordance with this Privacy Policy. Third parties are under no obligation to comply with this Privacy Policy, however, with respect to Personally-Identifying Information that users provide directly to those third parties or that those third parties collect for themselves. Company neither owns nor controls the third-party websites and applications accessible through the Website. Thus, this Privacy Policy does not apply to information provided to or gathered by the third parties that operate them. Before visiting a third-party, or using a third party application, whether by means of a link on the Website, directly through the Website, or otherwise, and before providing any Personally-Identifying Information to any such third party, users should inform themselves of the privacy policies and practices (if any) of the third party responsible for that website or application, and should take those steps necessary to, in those users’ discretion, protect their privacy.
SECURITY

We take security of your Personally-Identifying Information seriously and use reasonable electronic, personnel, and physical measures to protect it from loss, theft, alteration, or misuse. However, please be advised that even the best security measures cannot fully eliminate all risks.
PRIVACY POLICY CHANGES

Company may, in its sole discretion, change this Privacy Policy from time to time. Any and all changes to Company’s Privacy Policy will be reflected on this page and the date new versions are posted will be stated at the top of this Privacy Policy. Users should regularly check this page for any changes to its Privacy Policy. Company will always post new versions of the Privacy Policy on the Website. However, Company may, as determined in its discretion, decide to notify users of changes made to this Privacy Policy via email or otherwise. Accordingly, it is important that users always maintain and update their contact information.
CALIFORNIA PRIVACY RIGHTS

California Civil Code Section 1798.83, also known as the “Shine The Light” law, permits our users who are California residents to request and obtain from us once a year, free of charge, information about the personal information (if any) we disclosed to third parties for direct marketing purposes in the preceding calendar year. If applicable, this information would include a list of the categories of personal information that was shared and the names and addresses of all third parties with which we shared information in the immediately preceding calendar year. If you are a California resident and would like to make such a request, please submit your request in writing to our privacy officer as listed below.

By submitting your information you agree to receive all such notifications, disclosures and/or documents from us or any third party in electronic form or online in accordance with this document.

However, you will not be able to submit your information if you withdraw your consent by exiting the Website or closing your browser. Following the submission of your information, you may be able to withdraw your consent to future electronic disclosures from a third party by contacting the third party 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 prior to such disclosures being delivered to you electronically. We do not process opt-out communications for third parties, and each third party establishes its own rules regarding opting out of future electronic communications and disclosures.

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 an 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) our and/or any third party’s ability to conduct business with you by electronic means.

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. We will retain and use your information as necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements.
DO NOT TRACK POLICY

Some browsers have incorporated “Do Not Track” features. Most of these features, when turned on, send a signal or preference to the website or online service that a user visits, indicating that the user does not wish to be tracked. Because there is not yet a common understanding of how to interpret Do Not Track signals, this Website does not currently respond to Do Not Track signals. Our business partners and advertising networks that serve interest-based advertisements on our Website have limited access to a small amount of information about your profile and your device, which is necessary to serve you advertisements that are tailored to your apparent interests, and it is possible that they may reuse this small amount of information on other websites or services.
