What information is collected from me?
The kinds of information we collect from you will vary, depending on how you use our website. It’s possible to browse our site without submitting any personally identifiable information (“personal information”) at all, but if you choose to take advantage of some of our products and services, you may be asked to provide information such as your name, e-mail address, phone number, and address.
In addition to the information you choose to submit, our systems are designed to gather certain anonymous data to help us better understand how our sites are being used and how we can improve them. This automatically gathered data includes your computer’s IP or “Internet Protocol” address, statistics about how visitors navigate through our sites, and information provided through the use of “cookies” (which are described in more detail below).
How is my information used?

For services provided by Center Street lending, the information you submit is used to provide the service you’ve requested. We may also share this information with subcontractors, but only to the extent necessary to fulfill your request.

For other services, we may, with your permission, contact you by phone to request additional information to help you find useful services.

We may then forward your name, contact information, and other responses to our sign-up form to the selected professional(s), who may then contact you using that information. Any information that you provide may also be used by us in accordance with the uses set out in the Registration section, above.
