Online Privacy Policy

VA Home Loan MN.com is brought to you by Refined Lending.

 

Refined Lending recognizes the importance of protecting the confidentiality and security of information that you may choose to provide to us online. We have adopted this Online Privacy Policy to tell you how we collect, store, and use that information.


Why We Need Information About You

We need to know information about you for us to provide you with the mortgage loan products and services you have requested through Refined Lending’s website.  If applying online, that information may include your address, phone number, date of birth, social security number, income, employment, and other personal and financial information necessary to meet Refined Lending’s and/ or investor requirements.


How We Obtain Information About You

Most of the information we need to know we collect from you. We also may need to obtain information about you and the proposed transaction from other sources such as consumer reporting agencies, your employer, your bank, and others to make sure that the information is complete and correct. Additionally, when you browse or visit our website, we may store certain information on your computer.  This information or “cookies” facilitates website navigation, tailor the website to your individual preferences, and save you time when you return to the Refined Lending website. For example, if a program on the website requires a user ID and/or password, you may have the option of requesting that we save your user ID so you won’t have to enter it the next time you visit the website.  A cookie accomplishes this.  Cookies and other technologies provide Refined Lending with the capability to monitor the use of our website so we can continually improve the design and functionality to better serve you. Cookies do not contain or capture unencrypted personally identifiable information.


How We May Use or Share Your Information

We use the online information you provide or we collect to process your request for services, products, or information; to facilitate your online activities, and to improve our customer service.  We may share some of the information we collect about you to third parties, like companies performing services on our behalf, companies providing services or products pursuant to your request, or otherwise as permitted by law. If Refined Lending shares your information with a company contracted to provide services on our behalf, they are required to protect customer information and only use the information for the purpose of providing the requested services.  We do not sell your information.  We may also release your information to others when we believe, in good faith, that such release is reasonably necessary to (i) comply with law, (ii) protect the rights, property, or safety of Envoy or its employees, or (iii) help prevent fraud, money laundering, terrorism, or other crimes.


How We Protect Your Information

Refined Lending restricts access to the information obtained from our website to our employees and contractors.  We maintain physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards to protect your non-public personal information. Online applications are maintained on a secure server. While we strive to protect your personal information, we do not ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us in a non-secure environment, such as within or attached to an e-mail.


Linking to Other Sites

We may provide links to the websites of other companies. If you choose to link to these websites, we are not responsible for the privacy or security of these websites, including the accuracy, completeness, reliability or suitability of their information. We recommend you carefully review the privacy policies of any website requesting your information.
