In general, you can visit this Web site without telling WeCosign who you are or without revealing any information about yourself.

Such information might include your name, your physical contact information, including your address and phone number(s), your email address, and certain financial information, such as your credit card, debit card or checking account number(s).
If you do choose to provide us with personal information, you can be assured that such information is kept in secured databases located in the United States. We may use anything we know about you to help us serve you better. We may use it, and disclose it to our affiliates and others, for any purpose allowed by law.

• Confirm or correct what we know about you;
• Help us prevent fraud, terrorism, and other crimes by verifying what
we know about you; and
• Process data for WeCosign.
We may also collect information about your transactions and experiences, with WeCosign and others, such as your payment history, claims, and coverage changes. When we disclose information to others to perform business services for us they are required to take appropriate steps to protect this information. And, they may use the information only for the purposes of performing those business services.
