Homewise Financial Corporation collects personally identifiable information, such as your e-mail address, name, home or work address or telephone number. HF also collects anonymous demographic information, which is not unique to you, such as your ZIP code, age, gender, preferences, interests and favorites.
There is also information about your computer hardware and software that is automatically collected by Homewise Financial Corporation. This information can include: your IP address, browser type, domain names, access times and referring website addresses. This information is used by HF for the operation of the service, to maintain quality of the service, and to provide general statistics regarding use of the Mortgage Solutions Financial website. This policy covers both online and offline activities, including information that we collect through our website, marketing events, applications you submit online and in person (among other methods).
Please keep in mind that if you directly disclose personally identifiable information or personally sensitive data through any Homewise Financial Corporation public message boards, this information may be collected and used by others. This includes any information that is part of your profile on a third- party social network (such as Facebook) and that you allow the third-party social network to share with us. Note: HF does not read any of your private online communications, such as a direct message sent to your loan officer.
Homewise Financial Corporation encourages you to review the privacy policies of websites you choose to link to from ours so that you can understand how those websites collect, use and share your information. HF is not responsible for the privacy policies or other content on websites outside of the Homewise Financial Corporation family of websites.
In all cases, we strive to limit the amount of information we collect and store to that which is necessary to provide you the relevant services.
