Waldo Financial Privacy Policy

Protecting your privacy is important to Waldo Financial Service Center and our employees. We want you to understand what information we collect and how we use it. In order to provide our customers with short term loans as effectively and conveniently as possible, we use technology to manage and maintain customer information. The following policy serves as a standard for all Waldo Financial Service Center employees for collection, use, retention, and security of nonpublic personal information related to our short term programs.

What information we collect:

We may collect "nonpublic personal information" about you from the following sources: Information we receive from you on applications or other loan forms, such as your name, address, social security number, assets and income; Information about your loan transactions with us, such as your payment history and loan balances; and Information we receive from third parties, such as consumer reporting agencies and other lenders, regarding your creditworthiness and credit history. "Nonpublic personal information" is nonpublic information about you that we obtain in connection with providing a short-term loan to you. For example, as noted above, nonpublic personal information includes your name, social security number, payment history, etc.

What information we disclose:

We are permitted by law to disclose nonpublic personal information about you to third parties in certain circumstances. For example, we may disclose nonpublic personal information about your short-term loans to consumer reporting agencies and to government entities in response to subpoenas. Such disclosures are made as necessary to effect, administer and enforce the loan you request or authorize. Otherwise, we do not disclose nonpublic financial information about our customers or former customers to anyone, except as permitted by law.

If you become an inactive customer, we will continue to adhere to the privacy policies and practices described in this notice.

Our security procedures:

We also take steps to safeguard customer information. We restrict access to nonpublic personal information about you to those of our and our servicer’s employees who need to know that information to provide short-term loans to you. We maintain physical, electronic and procedural safeguards that comply with federal standards to guard your nonpublic personal information.
