What information do we collect?

This Policy applies to all information or opinion about an identified individual or an individual who is reasonably identifiable (you), whether the information or opinion is true or not, and whether the information is recorded in a material form or not (Personal Information) that is collected online by us.

We collect Personal Information from you when you register on our site or fill out an application form.

When ordering or registering on our site, as appropriate, you may be asked to enter the following types of Personal information: your name, e-mail address, mailing address, phone number, gender, relationship and other family details, bank details and other financial information. When you are completing our automated application form, you will need to accept our separate privacy terms and conditions before you proceed.

You may, however, visit our site anonymously, or using a pseudonym, except to the extent required by law, or when it is deemed impractical for you to use our services and do so.

What do we use your information for?

We will only use your Personal Information when that information is ‘reasonably necessary’ to enable us to carry out our primary function of providing a loan service to you.

Any of the information we collect from you may be used in one of the following ways:

  • To personalise your experience (your information helps us to better respond to your individual needs)
  • To improve customer service (your information helps us to more effectively respond to your customer service requests and support needs)
  • To process transactions. When we process transactions on your behalf, your information, whether public or private, will not be sold, exchanged, transferred, or given to any other company for any reason whatsoever without your consent, other than for the express purpose of delivering the purchased product or service requested.
  • To send periodic emails. The email address you provide for order processing, may be used to send you information and updates pertaining to your order, in addition to receiving occasional company news, updates, related product or service information, etc. Note: If at any time you would like to unsubscribe from receiving future emails, we include detailed unsubscribe instructions at the bottom of each email.
  • To deal with complaints. If you lodge a complaint with us, we will use your Personal Information to assist us in dealing with, and responding to your complaint.

How do we protect your information?

We take reasonable steps to:

  • protect your Personal Information from misuse, interference and loss, and from unauthorised access, modification or disclosure;
  • ensure that our system is appropriately backed-up to prevent the loss of your Personal Information; and
  • destroy or de-identify your Personal Information when we no longer require it.

We implement a variety of security measures to maintain the safety of your personal information when you enter, submit, or access your personal information online. Some of these security measures include the following:

We offer the use of a secure server. All supplied sensitive/credit information is transmitted via Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology and then encrypted into our Payment gateway providers database, which is only to be accessed by those authorized with special access rights to such systems, who are required to keep the information confidential.

After a transaction, your private information (credit cards, social security numbers, financials, etc.) will not be stored on our servers.

Do we use cookies?

Yes. Cookies are small files that a site or its service provider transfers to your computer’s hard drive through your Web browser (if you allow it) that enables the site or service provider’s systems to recognize your browser and capture and remember certain information.

We use cookies to understand and save your preferences for future visits.

Do we disclose any information to outside parties?

We do not sell, trade, or otherwise transfer your Personal Information to outside parties. This does not include trusted third parties who assist us in operating our website, conducting our business, or servicing you, so long as those parties agree to keep this information confidential. We may also release your information when we believe release is appropriate to comply with the law, enforce our site policies, or protect ours or other’s rights, property, or safety. However, visitor information other than Personal Information may be provided to other parties for marketing, advertising, or other uses.
