- Web-Related Information Collection
Cookies are small data files sent by a web server to a web browser, and stored by the browser. The text file is then sent back to the server each time the browser requests a page from the server. Cookies enable the web server to load webpages according to a user’s preferences for that particular site. They are also used to gather statistical data, such as which pages are visited, what is downloaded, the ISP’s domain name and country of origin, as well as your “click stream” activity (meaning, the paths taken by visitors to our site as they navigate from page to page) and transactional attributes in accordance with information you voluntarily submit in the course of using our site. This anonymous data is aggregated for analysis to ensure proper functioning of our site as well as to evaluate the effectiveness of our marketing efforts.
Most importantly, cookies help us protect your account’s security. Session ID cookies follow your activities on our site so that we can ensure that no one is making changes to your profile or applying for loans, and expire when you close your browser. We use persistent cookies that remain on your hard drive for an extended period of time so that we can recognize you when you return to our website. It may be possible to disable some cookies through your device or browser settings, but doing so may affect your ability to use our website. The method for disabling cookies may vary by device and browser, but can usually be found in preferences or security settings. All of the information transmitted by cookies is encrypted and no personal information is stored.
