5. Online Tracking and Advertising

We collect information about Your activity on the Services using tracking technologies. Information collected through tracking technologies is used for many purposes including, for example, to analyze traffic on the Services and on websites or mobile applications of third parties. Examples of the tracking technologies are:

Cookies. Cookies are pieces of information that are stored directly on the device that You are using. They allow Us to collect information such as the type of browser You are using, the amount of time You spend using the Services, the websites or applications You visit and the preferences You have set up for Your accounts. We use this information for business purposes such as to personalize Your experience, enhance security, facilitate navigation, display material more efficiently, recognize the device that You are using to access the Services and understand how the Services are used. The Services do not use cookies that capture unencrypted personal information about You.

You can choose to have Your device refuse to accept any cookies, and the majority of devices and browsers offer additional privacy settings for cookies. You do this through Your browser settings. Devices and browsers differ, and you will need to check Your device settings or Your browser help menu to learn the correct way to modify Your cookies. If You turn cookies off, You will not have access to many features of the Services that make Your experience more efficient and some of the Services will not function properly. Please note that You will need to manage Your cookie settings for each device and browser that You use.

Pixel tags, web beacons, clear GIFs and other similar technologies. These are typically small software codes that are embedded in images on the LoanGlide website, the LoanGlide mobile applications or certain e-mail communications. They may involve the transmission of information directly to Us, to another party on Our behalf or to another party in accordance with its privacy policy. We may use these technologies to bring together information We collect about You. 

Location tracking on mobile devices. Certain applications on mobile devices may transmit information to Us about Your location. We may use that information to improve the products and services We provide to You as well as improving Our services generally in Your area.

Other technologies. We may use other technologies, such as the capture of screenshots while You are using the Services, to understand how You navigate and use the Services. This information helps Us to better understand how the Services are used and to improve them.

We may associate this tracking data with any personal information You provide, in which case We will treat it as personal information.

 

6. Other Information Collected Automatically 

Browser or Device Information: Certain information is collected by most browsers or automatically through Your device, such as Your Media Access Control (MAC) address, computer type (Windows or Macintosh), screen resolution, operating system name and version, device manufacturer and model, language, and Internet browser type and version. We use this information to ensure that the Services function properly.

Services Information: When You access and use the Services, We and Our third party service providers may track and collect usage data, such as the date and time Your device accesses Our servers and what information and files have been downloaded to Your device.

IP Address: Your IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to Your computer by Your Internet Service Provider. An IP address may be identified and logged automatically in Our server log files whenever a user accesses the Services, along with the time of the visit and the page(s) visited. Collecting IP addresses is standard practice and is done automatically by many websites, applications and other services. We use IP addresses for purposes such as calculating usage levels, helping diagnose server problems and administering the Services.

 

7. Linked Websites and Mobile Applications

The Services may contain links to third-party websites or mobile applications not controlled by LoanGlide. We encourage You to be aware when You leave the Services and to read the privacy policies and terms of use of any such websites that may collect Your personal information, as they will likely differ from those of LoanGlide. In addition, You may access the Services through a link from a service provider, and LoanGlide does not guarantee and is not responsible for the privacy or security policy of these websites and mobile applications.

 

8. Children’s Privacy

The Services are intended for use by businesses and individuals 18 years or age or older. Accordingly, LoanGlide does not knowingly solicit personal information from or market to children under the age of thirteen (13). If a parent or guardian becomes aware that his or her child has provided Us with information without their consent, he or she should promptly contact Us and We will delete such information from Our files. For additional information regarding the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA), please visit the Federal Trade Commission website.

 

9. Retention Period

We will retain Your personal and commercial information for the period necessary to fulfill the purposes outlined in this Policy, unless a longer retention period is required by law.

 

10. Cross-Border Transfer

 The Services are controlled and operated by Us from the United States, and are not intended to subject Us to the laws or jurisdiction of any other country or territory. We may store and process Your personal information in any country where We have facilities or in which We engage service providers, and, by using the Services, You consent to the transfer of information to countries that may have different data protection rules than those of the United States.

 

11. State Privacy Laws

In addition to the federal laws concerning the collection and use of personal information that are applicable to financial institutions, some states have privacy laws and regulations that supplement these federal laws and provide additional rights to citizens of those states. For information regarding those state laws and the procedures that LoanGlide has in place to comply with those laws, please go to the State Privacy Laws page and our Disclosures page.

 

12. Changes to the Online Privacy Policy

From time to time, We may make changes to this Policy in order to accommodate changes to the Services, new technologies, industry practices, regulatory requirements or for other purposes. We encourage You to review the Policy periodically to ensure that You understand how We collect, use and share information through the Services. If We do make changes to the Policy, We will also update the “Effective Date” posted at the top of the Policy.

Any changes to the Policy will become effective when the revised Policy is posted on the Services. By continuing to use the Services following such changes, You are agreeing to accept the terms of the revised Policy.
