We encourage you to carefully read the privacy statement of any Web site you visit.

Information Collected

When you submit a vehicle financing application, we will need to obtain personally identifiable information from you or about you. Such personally identifiable information may include your name, home address, residence information, employment information, e-mail address, telephone number, social security number, financial information, bankruptcy history, credit references, etc. Consumers who submit an application expressly authorize us and third party partners to contact them in connection with each application and/or request regardless of whether or not such consumer is listed on a "Do Not Call" list.

We may also combine information you provide us with information about you that is available to us internally or from other sources. The more we know about you, the better we are able to serve you.

We may also aggregate your personal information with others' information and prepare reports on site usage. Those reports are aggregated and include no personally identifying information. Finally, we may use your personal information to send you email or postal communications regarding products or services offered by us or by third parties with whom we have relationships in which we think you may be interested. You may at any time choose not to receive promotional emails from us by contacting us at support@usmotorloans.com.
