The directors, management, and staff of Bay View Funding are concerned about and respect the privacy of our customers'/consumers' non-public personal information. We understand that our customers furnish sensitive information to us in the course of daily business, and we are committed to treating such information responsibly. We know that our customers expect privacy and security for their personal and financial affairs.
Access to your non-public personal information is limited to those Bay View Funding employees who need to know the information to provide products and services to you. We maintain physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards that comply with federal information. We continually assess new technology for protecting information.
We collect non-public personal information about you to help serve your financial needs, provide customer service, offer new products or services, and fulfill legal and regulatory requirements. These types of non-public personal information may include:
Bay View Funding and its affiliates do not now, nor do they intend in the future, to disclose any non-public personal information to any non-affiliated third party, except as permitted or required by law or regulation. When processing customers' transactions, information is provided to unaffiliated third parties as necessary to effect, administer, or enforce a transaction requested or authorized by that customer, or in connection with servicing or processing a financial product or service that the customer has requested or authorized.
We may also disclose information we collect, as described above to companies that perform marketing services on our behalf or to other organizations with whom we have joint marketing agreements to offer financial products and services to you. When we disclose information to these types of third parties it will be under an agreement requiring them to protect your non-public personal information and prohibiting the use of the information beyond the performance of specified services on our behalf.
We do not share any non-public personal information about our former customers with anyone, except as permitted or required by law. If you terminate your relationship with us, we will adhere to the information policies and practices described in this policy, with regard to information we have collected on you.
We are permitted or required by law to share your non-public personal information with attorneys, accountants, auditors to enforce Bay View Funding's legal or contractual rights, credit bureaus and government entities in responding to subpoenas and other legal processes. We also share non-public personal information with whomever you request.
Bay View Funding may make a decision to sell a particular line of business (for example, mortgage servicing rights). Usually, an integral part of that business is its customer database. Bay View Funding reserves the right, in circumstances such as these, to transfer ownership of such customer database to the purchaser.
