Consumer Privacy Notice
At Planet Home Lending, LLC, (“Planet”), we recognize your right to confidentiality and value your trust very seriously. We strive to protect the privacy of our clients’ personal information and their customers’ data. By publishing this Privacy Statement (“Statement”), we want you to know that we apply our long-standing commitment to safeguarding privacy to all of our online services and activities. This Statement discloses the privacy practices for www.planethomelending.com (“Website”). The use of this Website or the Services (as defined below), including the submission of data, constitutes your acknowledgement that you have read and understood this Statement and agreed with its terms. We reserve the right to change this Statement upon notification to you. Use of this site following provision of such notice shall constitute your acceptance of the revised terms.
Information Collection and User Registration.
Any person accessing, browsing or otherwise using the Website, whether manually or through an automated mechanism is considered a “User”. Planet collects information from two types of Users: casual Users, who may access the main site and non-restricted pages of the Website, and registered Users, or “Clients”, who register with Planet and are thereby permitted to access the restricted pages of the Website.
In general, Users can visit the non-restricted pages of the Website without identifying themselves or revealing any personal information. Information tracking is limited to general Website traffic statistics and does not include personally identifiable information.
Use of Collected Information
Except as may otherwise be agreed in writing by Planet and any Client, whether in a contract for the provisions of Services (a “Services Agreement”) or otherwise, which agreement will govern only data submitted to or gathered by Planet with respect to such Client, Planet is the sole owner of the information collected on the Website. We will not sell, share, or rent this information to others in ways different from what is disclosed in this Privacy Statement.
Planet uses the information we collect to set up the Services for individuals. We may also use the information to contact clients and prospects to discuss further their interest in our Services and to provide information (such as announcements of promotions and events) about Planet or its partners.
If you send us personal correspondence, such as emails or letters, we may collect such information. We may use such information without restriction for marketing purposes, but we will not disclose any personally identifiable information in doing so without your prior consent. For example, if you send us a letter telling us how helpful the Services are to you, we may use the comment in our marketing materials, but we will not use your name when we do so unless you agree in advance.
Planet cooperates with law enforcement and other third parties to enforce laws and property rights. We reserve the right to disclose any personal information that is necessary, in our reasonable discretion, to aid in such enforcement and to report any illegal activity to law enforcement authorities. We also reserve the right to release personal information concerning a User who we believe is in violation of our Terms of Service or this Privacy Statement, even without a subpoena, warrant, or other court order.
In the event that another company acquires Planet or substantially all of its assets, as part of such transaction, information collected on this Website, including Registration Information, may be transferred to the acquiring company.
You may refuse to accept cookies. If a User rejects the cookie, that User may still use the Website, but as noted above, some portions of the Website may not function properly or may be restricted or unavailable.
The Website also uses IP addresses to analyze trends, administer the Website, track User’s movement, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. IP addresses are not linked to personally identifiable information.
Planet uses Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) encryption technology to keep your personal information as secure as possible. While we strive to protect your personal information, Planet cannot warrant or guarantee the security of any information you transmit.
While we use SSL encryption to protect sensitive information online, we also strive to protect user-information off-line. All of our Users’ information, not just the sensitive information mentioned above, is restricted in our offices. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job are granted access to the information. Furthermore, all employees are kept up-to-date on our security and privacy practices. Any time new policies are added, our employees are notified and/or reminded about the importance we place on privacy, and what they can do to ensure that our Clients’ and their customers’ information is protected. Finally, the servers on which we store our Clients’ data are kept in a secure environment, with around the clock security.
Correcting/Updating Personal Information
If a User’s personally identifiable information changes, such as phone number, we will endeavor to provide a way to correct, update or remove that User’s personal data provided to us. If you find personal information that you believe to be inaccurate, please call us at 1-866-882-8187 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Opting out
To learn how Planet shares nonpublic personal information and to opt-out of some types of information sharing, please read our Consumer Privacy Notice.
In some circumstances, we will retain certain information in our files for the purposes of resolving disputes, troubleshooting problems, enforcing the Terms of Service or other legal requirements. Further, due to technical constraints and the fact that we back up our systems, it is impractical to remove all such information from our systems. Therefore, you should not expect that all of your personally identifiable information will be completely removed from our databases in response to your requests.
