We do our best to remind you that you are opting-in to specific types of data gathering and use when you are interacting with our site. This includes when we collect identifiable information,non-identifiable information, sensitive information, cookie and usage information.
Information We Collect AboutYou
We use this section to explain our data collection practices to you. We only collect information from you that allowsus to make the site run smoothly and provide you with our services.
Personally identifiable information isinformation that can identify you as a person — simple, right? Well personallyidentifiable information can also be a combination of information that revealswho you are. For example, if I know your birthday is onJuly 4, 1976, I can’t necessarily figure out who you are. However, if I knowyour birthday, where you went to college, whether you’re married or not, andmaybe your zip code, then I probably know enough to figure out who you are if Ireally wanted to. So personally identifiable information can be eithersomething very specific about you, like your full name, or it can be a combinationof general details that let me narrow down the possibilities until I figure outthat it can only be you.
WhatWe purposefully seek the following personallyidentifiable information from you in a variety of circumstances: full name,home address, email address, date of birth, and phone number .
WhenWe may seek personally identifiableinformation from you in a variety of ways, including: registration, contactforms, emailing or calling customer service, from our processors.
WhyWe may use personally identifiable informationin the following ways: underwriting and collections.
We may use your information for marketing purposes. However, we allow our usersto opt out of marketing if that is their preference.
We store any personally identifiableinformation that we’ve collected for as long as the account is maintained.
Non-identifiable personal information isinformation that’s technically about you, but cannot be linked directly to youwithout being combined with personal information. For example, if I know thatyou use Google Chrome when you visit my site, I will never be able to figureout who you are without combining it with personally identifiable information —even if I know what search terms you typed in, what kind of computer you areusing, and how long you use the site for every time you visit, I will not beable to figure out that the user is you without personally identifiableinformation.
WhatWe purposefully seek the followingnon-identifiable personal information from you in a variety of circumstances:browser type, operating system, session length, page views, length of pageviews, referral links, search terms, general location data, general demographicdata, purchase information, mobile network information, browser settings, crashreports, and IP address.
WhenWe may request non-identifiable personalinformation from you in a variety of ways, including: automatically through thesession and from other third parties.
WhyWe may use non-identifiable personalinformation in the following ways: advertising metrics, targeting and usage. We don’t store any non-identifiable personalinformation that we’ve collected, but our 3rd party tools store itindefinitely.
Sensitive information is the type ofinformation that you might not necessarily want people to know, or at least,you would want to control who knows the information and how they come acrossit. An example of sensitive information could be your credit score or yoursocial security number. As you can imagine, sensitive information should onlybe requested by a company if they really need the information to provide youwith services.
We collect some sensitive information from youfor various reasons and at various times, including credit card or bank accountnumbers, credit information, and driver's license, passport, or other state IDnumbers. When we collect sensitive information, it's so we can use it forunderwriting and collections. We store sensitive information for seven yearsafter account maturity.
About Automated Collection
Automated technologies help us make ourwebsite run more smoothly. Through the use of automated means, we are able tosee which of our pages are most popular, how users find our website, whatcauses errors in the website, and a lot of other details which help us make thewebsite the best it can be.

Our automated technologies are supported by the use of other technologies,including Facebook Pixel, Google Analytics, Skydive, and HubSpot.
Please note that disabling and deletingcookies might make this website (and others) work improperly.
Flash cookies are functionally similar toregular cookies, but they are not subject to the same controls as regularcookies are. While you can follow the directions in the “Cookies” section toblock most cookies, flash cookies require a different type of opt out.

Web Beacons are tiny files that load when auser completes an action like visiting a particular webpage, or opening anemail. Because the tiny file is loaded from a server, and the server can seethat your computer is trying to open the page or email, the server can deducethat you have visited the page or viewed the email.
“Do Not Track”
“Do Not Track” signals are a brand-new featurethat some web browsers allow their users to send. The idea behind the “Do NotTrack” signals is that all of the websites of various companies will come to anagreement about standardizing a way to not track people who visit theirwebsites. That way, people who turn on “Do Not Track” will always know whatparts of their privacy are protected without having to read every single privacypolicy.
There is not yet an industry consensus on howto handle “Do Not Track” signals, so our website is not yet set up to handlethem. In the future, this section will discuss how the “Do Not Track” signalsare honored.
