We Protect Your Right to Privacy
IndustryAccess.comSM is committed to protecting your privacy as a user. As an application service provider and technology company, we understand better than most the need for you to maintain control over your personal data when using the Internet. We maintain your privacy through the enforcement of strict internal polices that exceed industry standards. This statement discloses the privacy practices for www.Industryaccess.com, and all affiliated web sites in the IndustryAccess.com Network.
Use of Data
All information collected through user registration and when we set up your company to participate in the network is used simply to permit you and/or your company to communicate with other participants in the network. We do not sell or distribute that information to any third party. Highly sensitive information that pertain to a loan application, and supporting documentation such as credit reports, appraisals, VODs and VOEs are securely transmitted to our servers, securely stored, and shared only by other network participants that are required to consummate the funding transaction. Any credit card payments conducted through the network are handled through third party vendors such as CyberCash, and as such information such as credit card numbers are not collected by us.
Use of Your Email Address
One of the biggest annoyances is SPAM e-mail. We dislike it too, and do not permit the participants of the IndustryAccess.com Network to SPAM e-mail each other to promote their own businesses. We do not sell, rent, or share any e-mail addresses with any other party. However, we, as a communications portal for the wholesale mortgage industry, do allow participants in the network to send e-mails to each other. Nevertheless, each participant's web site administrator can control which other participants have your e-mail address. The only times a broadcast e-mail will be sent are the following: (1) when a lender makes a rate change, the lender may send its brokers and own employees a rate change notification; (2) IndustryAccess.com might send e-mails to users regarding information pertaining to the use of the service.
Sharing of Information
We do not sell, rent, or share any user information that we collect from the registration process. By contract, third parties such as CyberCash must comply with their own privacy policies with regard to the renting, selling, or sharing of information. As partners of IndustryAccess.com, they must also offer IndustryAccess.com users the chance to opt out of information sharing. For advertising purposes, user information is statistically aggregated and reported to advertisers. However, we do not disclose to these entities any information that could be used to personally identify you, such as your name, email address, account, password, or transaction history.
IndustryAccess.com provides lenders with statistics and reporting pertaining to their own users' and their brokers' use of the lenders' resources on the network. For instance, lenders have information regarding if and when its brokers are viewing their rate sheets.
All information gathered on IndustryAccess.com web sites is stored and maintained in secure facilities that limit access to authorized personnel only. This personnel can only access the information through a series of access-control procedures. All IndustryAccess.com employees are briefed about the company's privacy and security policies on a regular basis. The IndustryAccess.com web sites are regularly tested for security breaches to ensure that all information collected is secure from unauthorized viewing.
