Information Collected Through Your Transactions and Our Website
Many financial companies need to share customers’ personal information to run their everyday business. RoundPoint Mortgage collects information from Website visitors and obtains information from third parties (including from service providers) in the course of providing mortgage and loan services (“Services”), which may add to the data obtained through the Website. The information collected includes:
Personal and Loan-related Information
You may provide us information, which may include personal information and information relating to or necessary for the initiation, processing, or completion of certain financial transactions, including the origination of loans. For our servicing customers, this information is also obtained through your loan originator or prior servicer.
We may also create transactional records of each of the transactions or other events on your account, including those occurring through our Website. This transactional information is generally collected (i) to enable our Services, including loan document creation, origination, management, and distribution, (ii) to enable the services provided by third parties (including determinations regarding qualification for loans or the interest rates to be applied to loans), and (iii) to enable RoundPoint Mortgage to comply with various legal obligations.

Like most online services, our Website collects standard technical, non-personal information when you use it, including internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser types, internet service providers (ISPs), the pages and content you view or interact with on our Website, the information you search for, and the dates and times that you visit our Website.
Cookies and Other Technologies
Our Website collects certain information through the use of “cookies” and other tracking technologies. Cookies are small files that your browser places on your computer.

Third Party Usage
RoundPoint’s third party business partners may collect information about your online activities over time and across different internet websites or online services when you access RoundPoint’s website or online services.
Federal Law requires RoundPoint to tell you how we collect, share, and protect your personal information. We and service providers working on our behalf use information collected through your transactions and on our Website in a variety of ways, including the following:
To Provide our Services
We use the information that we collect (i) to complete your mortgage transactions, such as to apply your payments; (ii) to operate, maintain, enhance, and provide our Website and our Services; (iii) to provide other services and information that you request; and (iv) to provide customer support to you and other parties.

Federal law gives consumers the right to limit some, but not all, sharing. Alaska, Connecticut, North Dakota, and Vermont laws state that RoundPoint cannot share residents’ personal information without their permission. In all states, RoundPoint may share, transfer, or disclose your information for its business transaction purposes, such as sharing your information with a third party in order to process your payment. RoundPoint may also provide certain information to others when the law requires it if (a) we believe that disclosure is reasonably necessary to comply with any applicable law, regulation, legal process or governmental request; (b) to enforce our agreements, policies and terms of service; (c) to protect the security or integrity of our Website or Services; (d) to protect the property, rights, and safety of RoundPoint Mortgage, our users, or the public from harm or illegal activities; (e) to respond to an emergency which we believe in the good faith requires us to disclose information to assist in preventing the death or serious bodily injury of any person; or (f) to investigate and defend ourselves against any third-party claims or allegations.
