Privacy Policy

We take privacy seriously and have written the following to give a clear and concise overview of how we collect and use your information. Our overall goal in designing our process is to limit the amount of information we take and maximize the security of each channel we receive them through.

What information is being collected by us?

Personal Information

We collect information you provide to us such as your name, phone number, email, and other personally identifiable information strictly for the purposes of completing your loan transaction. We also use a restricted set of this information to easily contact you for the purposes of completing your transaction.

The email address you use for your account is also used to send transactional emails, updates and other automated messages.

Analytics and Tracking

We track users for the purposes of analytics and advertising through cookies on our website. This information is used to roughly geolocate the user to provide services specific to their area.

We also gather information on user access dates and times for the purposes of analyzing user behaviour and information security.

Document files you upload

During the course of your loan you will be required to upload documents to a secure server. These documents are made available to your team for a minimum period to complete the loan transaction.

How do we collect this information?

We collect analytics about your usage of our website through cookies, automatically and in the background. You provide the other information through your loan application which are used only for the purposes of your loan.

What will this information be used for and who will have access to it?

Your loan officer and assisting team members will have restricted access to your file for the purpose of submitting your loan application. They will also have less restricted access to your contact information for the purpose of easily reaching you.

How long will this information be stored?

Your information is transferred from the Website servers to long term storage for auditing purposes required by law after you complete your refinance.

Uploads

Your document uploads are hosted on the Website server and available through the web in a secure and restricted way for the duration of your transaction for access and information extraction. After all documents are uploaded they are transferred to a secure file storage not accessible through The Homiro's website.

After that your information can be deleted from online access but you will need to re-create your profile when coming back for another transaction in the future.

How will you inform me of changes?

The last date modified located at the end of this page will change every time this is updated.

Additional Privacy Notice for California Residents

This Privacy Notice for California Residents (this “Privacy Notice”) is for California residents only and supplements, and does not replace, the information contained in the Homiro.com Privacy Policy.

It applies to visitors, client’s, users, and others who reside in the State of California (“consumers” or “you”). This notice contains a description of our online and offline practices regarding the collection, use, disclosure, and sale of personal information and of the rights of California residents regarding their personal information.

While we believe that much of the personal information we collect is exempted under the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act exemption of the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 (“CCPA”), we are providing this notice to recognize certain rights of consumers under the CCPA. For example, this Privacy Notice does not apply with respect to information that we collect about California residents who apply for or obtain our financial products and services for personal, family, or household purposes. In limited circumstances, we may collect information that identifies, describes, or is reasonably capable of being associated with you that is not related to your use of our financial products and services.

Any terms defined in the CCPA have the same meaning when used in this Privacy Notice.

We cannot respond to your request or provide you with personal information if we cannot verify your identity or authority to make the request and confirm the personal information relates to you. Making a verifiable consumer request does not require you to create an account with us.

Our practices with regard to verifying a request will vary depending on the request and the information we have on the person making the request.

Response Timing and Format

We endeavor to respond to a verifiable consumer request within 45 days of its receipt. If we require more time (up to 90 days), we will inform you of the reason and extension period in writing. We will deliver our written response by mail or electronically (provided we can do so securely). Any disclosures we provide will only cover the 12-month period preceding the verifiable consumer request’s receipt. The response we provide will also explain the reasons we cannot comply with a request, if applicable.

We do not charge a fee to process or respond to your verifiable consumer request unless it is excessive, repetitive, or manifestly unfounded.

You have the right to not receive discriminatory treatment for the exercise of the privacy rights conferred by the CCPA.
