Restrictions on distribution of your personal information to third parties

Personal Information gathered from Home Loan forms of Foreclosure Help Forms:
Your information will be forwarded to loan brokers, lenders or foreclosure mitigation professionals who we have determined can likely consummate the requested action.  They will use the information to make the loan or work with your mortgage.  Their own privacy policy will dictate distribution of information once given to them.  If the initial lender, broker or mitigeation professional fails to take action we may forward the information to another who has an interest in the type of reponse requested by the borrower.  If a computer pre-screening determines a loan may not be available we will notify you by email or present you with a response page while you are online to advise you of options. Unless requested not to, we may (1)Follow up on a request to verify you received the service you applied for, (2)verify you were satisfied with the service you received from those who helped you, (3)contact you by phone or email to see if you would like to attempt to place the request again if the prior attempt did not achieve the result you desired and we feel another attempt would yield a different outcome. Other than information distribution as outlined here, no information obtained will be distributed to any third party for any reason except as outlined in this privacy statement.

Personal Information gathered from Financial, Budget or Debt Evaluation forms:
Other than information which may be disclosed to a debt negotiation professional or attorney, no information obtained will be distributed to any third party for any reason except as outlined in this privacy statement and or the terms and conditions of a particular site. Some programs allow a debtor's information to go to several debt professionals, one per industry, this only occurs when either the consumer directly makes such a request, or the computer program determines the consumer's best interest includes comparing more than one solution in order to make a more informed choice about how to solve a debt problem. In such a case the consumer's information shall still be limited to distribution only to a limited number of debt professionals offering debt solutions the program feels it is most important for the consumer to examine.

Personal Information gathered from user other than from forms filled out online or via the telephone:
We do not gather or harvest such information from your computer.

Public Information gathered from web pages of companies listed on our directories:
We may gather the public information available from public web pages on our directories and compile such information into lists which may be used by us or given or sold to third parties.  Any company which does not wish us to use their public information in this way may have such information deleted from our list by giving us notice as indicated below.  We reserve the right to delist any company making such a request from our directories.
