Our Commitment to Privacy
Americana Mortgage Group takes your privacy very seriously. We take every precaution to protect our users' sensitive information, both online and off line.
We collect only the customer information necessary to serve you.
Americana Mortgage Group does not collect personally identifiable information without your knowledge. Such information is collected only when you knowingly and voluntarily submit it to us, and used only for the purposes for which it was submitted.
Your name, phone number, address, social security number, email address, employer's name and address, income, assets, liabilities, and answers to questions of both personal and financial matters required on our online application form, is the same information that you would supply us if you were applying for a loan by filling out a paper loan application.
When you engage in certain activities on our site-for example, entering our "Win One Month's Mortgage Payment" monthly drawing, enrolling in the "Name Your Rate" email alert feature, and/or "Tell A Friend"--Americana Mortgage Group may ask you to provide certain information by filling out and submitting an online form. This information is collected in order to support your participation in the activities you select.
Americana Mortgage Group may also use information provided by you to give you information and special offers on other services that we may provide that we think would be useful to your needs. However, at any time, you may choose to not receive such information or offers from Americana Mortgage Group by contacting us via the methods listed below.
We maintain safeguards to ensure information security.
To prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy and ensure the correct use of information, Americana Mortgage Group has put into place appropriate physical, electronic and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect online and in our possession. Access is limited to those employees integral to the transaction process and who are required to respect the confidentiality of all customer information.
We limit how and with whom we share your information.
We do not sell, share or rent lists of our customers to unauthorized parties, nor do we disclose customer information to marketing companies.
We share customer information only with:
a. Trusted third parties necessary to qualify, process, close and service your mortgage.
b. State Banking Departments. As a licensed mortgage broker, Americana Mortgage Group is required to submit to audits by the State Banking Departments we are licensed with. These internal, on-site audits involve the review of random customer files by a Banking Department official for the sole purpose of ensuring our compliance with state regulations put in place specifically to protect consumers.
Additionally, we may contact your employer and companies that hold your assets to verify information you provide us. We do not provide them with any information they don't already have.
Computer Tracking and Cookies
Our web site is not setup to track, collect or distribute personal information not entered by visitors. Our site logs do generate certain kinds of non-identifying site usage data, such as the number of hits and visits to our site. This information is used for internal purposes by technical support staff to provide better services to the public and may also be provided to others, but again, the statistics contain no personal information and cannot be used to gather such information.
A cookie is a small amount of data that is sent to your browser from a Web server and stored on your computer's hard drive.
