If you utilize our Services to obtain a financial product or service through us, we will use and share any information that we collect from or about you in accordance with our U.S. law, which offers you certain choices with respect to the use and sharing of your personal information. Information subject to our Privacy Notice is referred to as Non-Public Personal Information (“NPI”).

In addition to the information you provide to us directly, we may automatically collect information about your use of the Service, as described below.

- When you visit the Service, we may send one or more cookies — a small text file containing a string of alphanumeric characters — to your computer that uniquely identifies your browser or stores information or settings on your device. Cookies let us help you log in faster and enhance your navigation through the site. A cookie may also convey information to us about how you use the Service (e.g., the pages you view, the links you click and other actions you take on the Service), and allow us or our business partners to track your usage of the Service over time. A persistent cookie remains on your hard drive after you close your browser. Persistent cookies may be used by your browser on subsequent visits to the site. Persistent cookies can be removed by following your web browser’s directions. A session cookie is temporary and disappears after you close your browser. Our Service may use HTTP cookies, HTML5 cookies and other types of local storage (such as browser-based or plugin-based local storage).
- Clear gifs/web beacons.When you use the Service, we may employ clear gifs (also known as web beacons) which are used to anonymously track the online usage patterns of our Users. In addition, we may also use clear gifs in HTML-based emails sent to our users to track which emails are opened, which links are clicked by recipients, and whether our emails are forwarded. The information allows for more accurate reporting and improvement of the Service.
- Web analytics. We may use third-party Web analytics services on our Service, such as those of Google Analytics. These service providers use the technology described above to help us analyze how users use the Service. The information collected by the technology (including your IP address) will be disclosed to or collected directly by these service providers. To prevent Google Analytics from using information for analytics, a user may install the Google Analytics Opt-Out Browser Add-on by clicking here.
- Third-Party Ad Targeting. We sometimes use the above technologies for interest-based advertising, which may be based on your device or browser’s signals received across websites or applications, and over time. Please see the section titled “Tailored Advertising” to learn how you can opt out of these marketing methods and technologies.
We may use this information in a number of ways, including: (a) to remember information so that you will not have to re-enter it during your visit or the next time you visit the site; (b) to provide custom, personalized content and information; (c) to provide our Service and monitor its effectiveness, including on or through our affiliates and/or other third party service providers; (d) to monitor aggregate metrics such as total number of visitors, traffic, and demographic patterns; (e) to diagnose or fix technology problems; (f) to help you efficiently access your information after you sign in and; (g) to deliver advertising to you.
C. Information from Third-Party Sources
We may receive information about you from publicly and commercially available sources, as permitted by law, which we may combine with other information we receive from or about you. For example, when you request prequalified rates, we will ask your permission to conduct a soft credit inquiry. Likewise, if you apply for a loan product, either us or a Provider may conduct a hard credit inquiry.
2. Tailored Advertising
We may use third-party advertising technologies that allow for the delivery of relevant content and advertising on the Service, as well as on other websites you visit and other applications you use. Please refer to our U.S. Consumer Privacy Notice for more information on your rights to opt-out of the sharing of NPI with non-affiliated third-party advertisers and your rights with respect to the sharing of certain information for marketing purposes with affiliate and non-affiliated third parties. The ads may be based on various factors such as the content of the page you are visiting, information you enter, your searches, demographic data, user-generated content, and other information we collect from you. These ads may be based on your current activity or your activity over time and across other websites and online services and may be tailored to your interests.
Also, third-parties whose products or services are accessible or advertised via the Service may place cookies or other tracking technologies on your computer, mobile phone, or other device to collect information about your use of the Service as discussed above. We may also allow other third-parties (e.g., ad networks and ad servers such as Google Analytics, DoubleClick, Quora Pixels and others) to serve tailored ads to you on the Service, other sites, and in other applications, and to access their own cookies or other tracking technologies on your computer, mobile phone, or other device you use to access the Service.
Please note that an advertiser may ask Crediverso to show an ad to a certain audience of Users (e.g., based on demographics or other interests). In that situation, Crediverso determines the target audience and Crediverso serves the advertising to that audience and only provides anonymous aggregated data to the advertiser. If you respond to such an ad, the advertiser or ad server may conclude that you fit the description of the audience they are trying to reach.
Please note that to the extent advertising technology is integrated into the Service, you may still receive advertisements even if you opt out. In that case, the advertising will not be tailored to your interests. Also, we do not control any of the above opt-out links or whether any particular company chooses to participate in these opt-out programs. We are not responsible for any choices you make using these mechanisms or the continued availability or accuracy of these mechanisms.
