TERMS OF USE
PLEASE READ CAREFULLY BEFORE USING THIS SITE


Welcome to the LoanHounds.com Web site hosted by LoanHounds (referred to herein as "we," "us," or "our") and its affiliated entities. By using this site, you acknowledge your agreement to these terms of use ("Terms of Use") set forth below. Please read the Terms of Use and, if you do not agree to them, do not use this site.

SERVICE GUIDELINES
LoanHounds is a free national consumer oriented service that quickly and conveniently matches consumer borrowers with qualified lending professionals. LoanHounds is not a financial institution, mortgage banker, or broker. We do not sell mortgage products to our customers. We do not endorse or recommend any specific kind of mortgage product or company.

We gather consumer contact and loan information via an online application and use this information to match borrowers with lenders. Submission of our online application constitutes acceptance to these terms of service and by doing so the borrower waives all claims.

We use the information gathered through our online application to establish a borrower profile. This borrower profile is used to search our database of lenders to match the borrower with up to the four of the most appropriate lenders based on the borrower?s individual financial situation. Once borrower and lender profiles are matched, the borrower's information is instantly transmitted to the lending professionals who will attempt to contact the borrower within one business day.

PRIVACY POLICY
LoanHounds takes privacy very seriously and we will never compromise the privacy of our customers. In order to be an effective intermediary we do need to collect certain contact and financial information. We require the submission of certain information to ensure an effective match within our network of lending professionals. We require borrowers to provide us with their name, contact information, financial information and specifics regarding their property and existing loans.

We are committed to using state of-the-art technology in order to protect the borrower's personal and financial information. We use the most advanced encryption technology available to ensure the integrity and security of information entered into and transmitted to our servers. By using Verisign's Secure Socket Layer 128-bit encryption technology we ensure an extremely high degree of confidentiality and privacy.

We do not require borrowers to submit sensitive information such as driver's license, social security, credit card or bank account numbers. Borrowers may provide additional information to lending professionals at their discretion. Once the borrower provides additional information to a lender it is subject to those lenders' privacy policies. Borrowers should read those policies to understand how those firms handle your information.

LoanHounds does not distribute nor sell any sensitive personal information we gather about borrowers to any individuals or entities under any circumstances, unless we are authorized to do so. Information we do share is only within our network of partners and lending professionals. To the extent permitted by law, we may also share your personal information if we believe it is necessary to comply with the law, to enforce or apply our Terms of Use, or to protect the rights, property, or safety of LoanHounds, our employees, affiliates, and users. We reserve the right to share information with anyone outside of our network if we are mandated to do so by law or court order.

LoanHounds may share demographic data with our lenders and other third parties for market research and demographic purposes. This information is always anonymous and does not include personal identifying information.

LoanHounds may notify borrowers about a special offer from one of our promotional partners. We do not reveal the borrower's sensitive personal or financial information or any other identifying information to that promotional partner unless you request us to do so. You have the option to decline such offers and be removed from e-mail promotion lists at any time. To make this request, please email customerservice@loanhounds.com and type remove in the subjst line of the email.

We may use third-party advertising companies to serve ads on our behalf. These companies may employ cookies and action tags (also known as single pixel gifs or web beacons) to measure advertising effectiveness. Any information that these third parties collect via cookies and action tags is completely anonymous. If you would like more information about this practice and your choices, click here.

We do permit our list manager to contact you to promote third party services and/or products, however we will not share or sell your personal financial information to anyone under any circumstance.
