California Residents:

The California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) provides California residents with rights to receive certain disclosures regarding the collection, use and sharing of “Personal Information” as well as rights to know/access, delete and limit sharing of “Personal Information”. As a financial services organization, much of the information we collect is exempt from the CCPA because it is covered by federal or state privacy laws, such as the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act.

The CCPA defines Personal Information to mean “information that identifies, relates to, describes, is reasonably capable of being associated with or could reasonably be linked, directly or indirectly, with a particular consumer or household.  We do not sell your Personal Information; however, as described in this policy, we do disclose information about you to third parties who provide you with financial products and services.

To the extent that we collect Personal Information that is subject to the CCPA, you have the right to request access to Personal Information we have collected about you in the preceding 12 months, the purposes for which we collected it and the categories of third parties with whom we shared it.  Additionally, you have the right to request in certain circumstances that we delete any Personal Information that we have collected directly from you; however, there may be certain exceptions as defined in the CCPA that prevent or limit our ability to comply with your request.

To submit a request to exercise your right to access or delete your Personal Information under the CCPA, please call us at 1-888-812-5043 or submit a written request to us at:
