How We Protect Your Personal Information
We consider protecting the security of your personal information as very important. However, this site does not provide facilities to guarantee the secure transmission of information across the Internet. Whilst reasonable efforts are used to provide security, users should be aware that there are inherent risks in the transmission of information across the Internet. When you enter sensitive information such as a credit card number and/or social security number on our registration or order forms, we encrypt that information using secure socket layer technology (sometimes referred to as "SSL").
We follow 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. Therefore, while we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your personal information, we do not guarantee absolute security. We are not responsible for the unauthorized acts of others and we assume no liability for any disclosure of information due to errors in transmission, unauthorized third-party access (such as through hacking) or other acts of third parties, or acts or omissions beyond our reasonable control.

If your personal information changes or if you no longer want to subscribe to or use the Website, you may correct, update, terminate or deactivate your personal information and your account by contacting Proprietor via the contact information at the top of the Website. There is no fee for requesting access to your information; however, we may charge you the reasonable cost of processing your request.
Website and the services and products we offer and sell are intended for potential home buyers, those looking to refinance their home, and other typical clients of Proprietor. Therefore, it is unlikely that children under the age of 17 will use the Website or purchase the services or products we offer.

In addition, we will delete any information in our database that we know originates from a child under the age of 17.
If you are between the ages of 13 and 17, you, your parent, or your legal guardian may request that we deactivate any of your personal information in our database and/or opt-out from receiving communications from us. If you wish to do so, please contact us via the contact information on Website.
How Long We Retain Your Data

All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.
