Information We Collect:

There are several areas on our website where you may be asked to enter both personal and non-personal information. Our website uses these input forms for clients and potential clients to request information about our products and services. We may also collect information in order to notify you about products, services, and other opportunities we think will be of interest to you. To make a request, individuals may be required to provide their contact information and personal information such as your name, address, phone number e-mail address, income and other financial or non-financial related information depending upon your expressed need ("Personal Information").

Any information that you send to us may be collected and maintained in a file specific to you.

We also may collect demographic information. Demographic information is all other information such as gender, zip code, or any information that is not tied to your Personal Information. In addition, we might receive information about you from other sources (such as service providers) for tracking purposes. We may add the information we receive about you to your existing account. Like other websites, we also automatically receive and record certain types of information every time you visit us. We use "cookies" and other information to enhance your experience and present you with personalized offers. Likewise, we sometimes use third-party advertising companies to serve and track advertisements appearing on our website. These companies may employ cookies and action tags to measure advertising effectiveness. Any information that these third parties collect via cookies and action tags is completely anonymous. ZipSearch LLC also employs software technology referred to as clear .gifs or "Web Bugs" which allow ZipSearch LLC to determine which pieces of content on our site are most effective from a marketing standpoint. Clear .gifs work like cookies - they are graphics with a unique identifier which allow ZipSearch LLC to track the online movement of visitors to our site. No personally identifiable information is tied to a clear gif. Clear gifs are also used in connection with our HTML-based emails to allow us to know when an email has been opened. If you do not wish to receive such email communications, please refer to the Opt Out policy below.

How We Use Your Information:

The following paragraphs describe how we currently use Individual Information, but we may change or broaden its use at any time. As noted below, we may update this policy from time to time. We may use Individual Information to provide promotional offers to individuals by means of email advertising, telephone marketing, direct mail marketing, online banner advertising, and package stuffers, among other possible uses.

Services and Products Requests - If you submit a request for a loan product or other services offered by ZipSearch LLC or any of its affiliated websites, ZipSearch LLC will share the Personal Information contained in your input request form with our Clients strictly to process and fulfill your request.

Although ZipSearch LLC uses industry standard efforts to safeguard the confidentiality of your personal identifiable information, such as firewalls and Secure Socket Layers, "perfect security" does not exist on the Internet.

Links to Other Sites:

Please note that this website contains links and banner advertising that may direct you to other websites. In addition, you may have arrived at this website via a link or banner ad on a third party website. This Privacy Policy applies to all information that you provide to ZipSearch LLC only. ZipSearch LLC is not responsible for the privacy practices of or the content contained in other websites. When you use a link or a banner ad to go from this site to another website or vice versa, or are otherwise directed or redirected to another website, this Privacy Policy no longer applies.

Anti-Spam Policy:

You will not receive email communications and advertisements from ZipSearch LLC or ZipSearch LLC's Clients unless you submit your email address to ZipSearch LLC or to a Client. In order to receive email communication from ZipSearch LLC and/or a Client, you must provide your email address. Providing your email address to either ZipSearch LLC and/or any of its Clients represents your affirmative consent to receive such communications. Additionally, you may also receive emails that advertise ZipSearch LLC services from third party publishers. We have strict policies for dealing with any third party email services to ensure that advertisements for ZipSearch LLC are not sent out through a "Spam" mailing and to ensure that our offers are sent only to those individuals who have given us their email addresses. If you want to stop receiving emails from ZipSearch LLC, a Client or a third party publisher, you should follow the opt-out instructions below or included in the Client or third party email so that you will not be included in any future mailings.

Opt Out:

ZipSearch uses Individual Information to provide promotional offers by email to individuals. We may maintain separate email lists for different purposes. If email recipients wish to end their email subscription from a particular list, they need to follow the instructions at the end of each email message to unsubscribe from the particular list. To unsubscribe from all our email lists, a person must send an email: contact@zipsearch.com. Our unsubscribe process impacts only the future delivery of electronic mailings disseminated by ZipSearch on its own behalf. You may still receive electronic mailings sent on behalf of Third Parties and your personal information may still be shared with Third Parties for use in offline marketing and data appends, including email appends.

You should also note that unsubscribing from our electronic mailings will not automatically unsubscribe the subscriber s information from any Third Party associates and licensees of the data. Since Third Party associates and licensee partners maintain separate databases from us, and you will need to unsubscribe from each source individually, if desired. This allows you the freedom to pick and choose which subscriptions to maintain and which to discontinue.

To exercise your right to opt out of having your Personal Information used for any purpose other than the service that you have specifically inquired about or requested, or if you would like to direct us not to make certain disclosures, please e-mail us or write to us with a detailed description of your request at the following address:

PO Box 9272
Rancho Santa Fe, California 92057
contact@zipsearch.com

You may continue to receive email communications from us up to ten business days from the time we receive your unsubscribe request. Please note that ZipSearch LLC can only control its own mailing list and policies. Third party advertisers that maintain their own mailing lists may send communications that advertise our services, and you may need to contact these parties directly in order to stop receiving their email communications. If you do not opt out, your Personal Information may be used as described in this Privacy Policy.

Sale or Transfer to Third Parties.

ZipSearch MAY SELL OR TRANSFER INDIVIDUAL INFORMATION TO THIRD PARTIES FOR ANY PURPOSE IN ITS SOLE DISCRETION.
