Mariner Finance Web Site Privacy Statement
1. Collection, Use and Disclosure of Personal Information. The Site does not collect personally identifiable information from you unless you voluntarily provide it. We will collect and store personal information you decide to provide to us for our records and you agree that we may use any of your personal information that you provide to us to communicate with you. Additionally, if you apply for a loan on the Site, we require that you complete an application and provide certain personally identifiable information. This information is necessary to both process your application and to contact you. All online applications are encrypted to maintain the security of your information.
The use of all personal information collected is governed by the policies described in the Privacy Notice. We reserve the right to disclose your personally identifiable information as required by law and when we believe that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights and/or to comply with a judicial proceeding, court order, or legal process served on the Site.
2. Collection, Use and Disclosure of Other Information. The Site may gather non-personal information about you depending on how your browser is configured. That information may include the Internet Protocol (IP) address(es) used to access the Site, the number of times you visit the Site, the time and length of the visit, the operating system and browser type used to access the Site, your screen resolution, and the particular web pages viewed right before arriving at, while navigating and immediately after leaving the Site, or similar details.
Non-personal information may be disclosed to third parties, but will not be logically associated with a user’s identity. In other words, the Site may disclose that a unique user accessed the Site a particular number of times and spent specific amounts of time on different pages, but we will not disclose the identity of that user (and most likely would have no way of identifying who that user was unless the user voluntarily identified him or herself to us).
4. Children. The Site is intended for the use of adults who are actual or potential purchasers of Mariner Finance products and services. It is not directed at children. Personal information from children (defined under the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act as those under 13 years of age) is not knowingly collected.
5. Security. To prevent unauthorized access to your personal data, maintain data accuracy, and ensure the correct use of information, Mariner Finance follows generally accepted industry standards to protect the personal information submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it. No method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure, however. Therefore, while we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.
