Protecting your privacy is important to Mathis Brothers and our employees. We want you to understand what information we collect and how we use it. In order to provide our customers with a broad range of financial products and services as effectively and conveniently as possible, we use current technology to manage and maintain customer information. The following policy serves as a standard for all employees for collection, use, retention and security of nonpublic personal information.
What Information We Collect
We collect "nonpublic personal information" about you from the following sources:
- Information we receive from you on applications or other forms;
- Information about your transactions with us or others; and
- Information we receive from third parties such as credit bureaus.
What Information We Disclose
We are permitted under law to disclose nonpublic personal information about you to other third parties in certain circumstances. For example, we may disclose nonpublic personal information about you to third parties to assist us in servicing your loan or account with us, to government entities in response to subpoenas and to credit bureaus. We do not disclose any nonpublic personal information about our customers or former customers to anyone, except as permitted by law. We may also share your information with service providers or suppliers that help with our business operations. Examples are shipping vendors, billing and refund vendors, credit card processors, and companies that help us improve our product and service offerings and our Site. We require these service providers and suppliers to keep the information secure. We also prohibit them from using your information for any purposes other than those requested by us. We may also share your information within our family of corporate subsidiaries and affiliates to accomplish these and our subsidiaries' and affiliates' purposes. We may share aggregate and statistical data that does not identify you personally. This sharing of information may be done for research and marketing purposes or for other lawful purposes. In the unlikely event that Mathis Brothers or substantially all of its assets are acquired by an unrelated third party, your personal information may be one of the transferred assets. If you decide to close your account(s) or become an inactive customer, we will continue to adhere to the privacy policies and practices described in this notice.
Our Security Procedures
We also take steps to safeguard customer information. We restrict access to nonpublic personal information about you to those employees who need to know that information in order to provide products or services to you. We maintain physical, electronic and procedural safeguards that comply with federal and state regulations to guard your nonpublic personal information.
We want to communicate with you in ways you want to hear from us including, but not limited to, newsletters, special offers and new product announcements. We use the following standards for marketing communications: (i) we use an opt-in standard for phone messages; (ii) we use an opt-in standard for sharing information with third parties for marketing purposes; and (iii) we use an opt-out standard for all other communications including, but not limited to, emails. For purposes of this privacy notice, "opt-in" means we will only conduct the activity with your express consent. "Opt-out" means we will conduct the activity unless you tell us not to. Please be aware that even if you opt-out of receiving marketing communications from us, we may still contact you for transactional purposes.
