We may use your email address to send a confirmation and, if necessary, we might use the other information to contact you for help in processing.
In addition, when you provide contact details for transaction requests such as scheduling an appointment or requesting a proposal, we will use the contact information to keep you updated about future offers or promotions, unless you opt-out online or otherwise notify us.

- Share aggregated statistical data with our business partners or for public relations.For example, we may disclose that a specific percentage of our users are between the ages of 25 and 35.
As mentioned above, we may use your personally identifiable information in many other ways, including sending you promotional materials, and providing your information to third parties as directed by you. (By “promotional materials,” we mean communications that directly promote the use of Web sites, or the purchase of products or services.). However, you may “opt-out” of certain uses of your personal information.
Disclosure of Information to Third Parties
We may disclose a consumer’s personally identifiable information in order to effect or carry out any transaction that you have requested of us or as necessary to complete our contractual obligations with you. WE RESERVE THE RIGHT TO SELL, RENT OR TRANSFER YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION TO THIRD PARTIES FOR ANY PURPOSE IN OUR SOLE DISCRETION.
We do not sell or transfer of personal information to non-affiliated entities for their use unless you have directed us to do so. We may share your personally identifiable information with affiliated companies that are directly or indirectly controlled by, or under common control of We Lend USA. When directed by you, we may send personally identifiable information about you to non-affiliated companies that are not directly or indirectly controlled by, or under common control of, We Lend USA.
The personal information collected on this site and by third parties will be used to operate the site and to provide the services or products or carry out the transactions you have requested or authorized. We may change or broaden the use of your personal information at any time. We may use your personal information to provide promotional offers to individuals by means of email advertising, telephone marketing, direct mail marketing, banner advertising, and other possible uses.
We may use other third parties to provide certain clerical, processing, and shipping services or to assist in providing the services that you requested. As such, we may share your personally identifiable information with service providers as necessary to carry out these tasks. When you contract with us, we will share only as much information with our service providers as is necessary for the provision of their services. These third parties are prohibited from using your personally identifiable information for any other purpose other than carrying out their contract services.
We provide you the opportunity to ‘opt-out’ of having your personally identifiable information used for certain purposes, when we ask for this information. For example, if you purchase a product/service but do not wish to receive any additional marketing material from us, you can indicate your preference on our order form.

Securing the Transmission and Storage of Information
The security of your personal information is extremely important to us. We employ generally accepted industry standards to protect the personal information submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it.
Our site uses SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) security technology to encrypt information you provide to us through the site when entering sensitive information (such as credit card number and/or social security number) on our registration or order forms. This ensures that your information is encrypted as it travels over the Internet. SSL is an industry-standard protocol for encryption over the internet.
After information reaches We Lend USA, it is stored on a secure server that resides behind firewalls designed to block unauthorized access from outside of We Lend USA. You can help to maintain the security of your online transactions by not sharing your personal information or password with anyone. Remember, no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure. (Example: any information you provide us by email is not encrypted) Therefore, while we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.
If you have any questions about the security on our Web site, please feel free to e-mail us.
Supplementation of Information
In order to provide certain services to you, we may, on occasion, supplement the personal information you submitted to us with information from third-party sources.
As is true of most Web sites, we gather automatically certain information and store it in log files. This information includes internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp, and click stream data.
We use this information, which does not identify individual users, to analyze trends, to administer the site, to track users’ movements around the site and to gather demographic information about our user base as a whole. We do not link this automatically collected data to personally identifiable information.
We use session ID cookies. We use session cookies to make it easier for you to navigate our site. A session ID cookie expires when you close you browser. We can at your option set a persistent cookie to store your passwords, so you don’t have to enter it more than once. Persistent cookies also enable us to track and target the interests of our users to enhance the experience on our site.
If you reject cookies, you may still use our site, but your ability to use some areas of our site will be limited.
Clear Gifs (Web Beacons/Web Bugs)
We employ a software technology called clear gifs (a.k.a. Web Beacons/Web Bugs), that help us better manage content on our site by informing us what content is effective. Clear gifs are tiny graphics with a unique identifier, similar in function to cookies, and are used to track the online movements of Web users. In contrast to cookies, which are stored on a user’s computer hard drive, clear gifs are embedded invisibly on Web pages and are about the size of the period at the end of this sentence. We do not tie the information gathered by clear gifs to our customers’ personally identifiable information.
We use clear gifs in our HTML-based emails to let us know which emails have been opened by recipients. This allows us to gauge the effectiveness of certain communications and the effectiveness of our marketing campaigns. If you would like to opt-out of these emails, please see “Choice and Opt-out.”
Links to Other Sites
While we try to link only to sites that share our standards and respect for privacy, we are not responsible for the privacy practices of such other sites.
