We consider the information we have about you to be confidential, including the fact that you are a client (unless you tell us otherwise). Your information will be handled in the manner described in this notice. We restrict access to information about you to those employees, officers, directors, investors, agents, attorneys, consultants and third parties who need to know such information, which may include assignees or successors to our loans and rating agencies and other financial institutions. We maintain physical, electronic and procedural safeguards that comply with federal standards to maintain the confidentiality of your information.

- Information from a consumer reporting agency (for example, your credit history or other facts relating to creditworthiness) or from other parties or sources such as public databases.
Third Parties to Whom We Disclose Information
We do not sell information about our current or former clients. We share or disclose information we collect about our current or former clients with third parties only as permitted by law. Some examples of legally permitted sharing or disclosures to third parties include:
