Information Collection & Use
MY HOME PATHWAY may collect and store information about you when you register with MY HOME PATHWAY, when you use MY HOME PATHWAY’s Services, when you visit MY HOME PATHWAY pages or the pages of MY HOME PATHWAY properties (e.g. www.myhomepathway.com) or the pages of certain MY HOME PATHWAY partners, and when you enter promotions or sweepstakes conducted, endorsed, or advertised by MY HOME PATHWAY. MY HOME PATHWAY may combine the information we have about you with information obtained from business partners, other companies, and other users.
MY HOME PATHWAY uses information for the following general purposes: providing, maintaining, optimizing, and improving our services, developing new services, enhancing the user experience, customizing the advertising, offers and content you see, fulfilling your product and service requests, conducting research, managing your customer relationship with us, providing you customer support, contacting you, and providing reports for our internal and external clients and partners. We do not store your Personal Information in cookies or log files on your device, but identifiers in such cookies or log files may be tied to your Personal Information in our systems.
Upon registering with MY HOME PATHWAY, information such as your full name, email address, birth date, gender, or ZIP code may be requested. Certain products and services may ask you for additional information, such as your address, phone number, income, Social Security number, details about the financial products you use, driver’s license number or information about your assets. Some of the Personal Information we collect when you register, like your Social Security number, is required by the credit bureau to verify your identity so we can fulfill your request for a credit score and credit report. When requesting your credit report and score on your behalf, we do not do a hard inquiry; rather, we do a soft inquiry of your credit report. We may also collect Personal Information or other information directly from you through various other forms and places throughout the Services, including “Contact Us” forms, or when you otherwise interact with us to provide or enhance our Services. You are not anonymous to us when you register with MY HOME PATHWAY and sign in to our Services.
Updating Your Personal Information & Communication Preferences:
You can at any time correct or update the personal information that you provided and that we maintain on you by logging into MY HOME PATHWAY App on your device and going to the “Settings” page. You can also change your communication preferences on this page. MY HOME PATHWAY is not responsible for and cannot amend the information in your credit report, which is produced by one or more credit reporting agencies. If you believe that some of the information in your credit report is inaccurate, you must contact the applicable credit reporting agency directly. Information on how to contact the credit reporting agency may be contained in the settings section.
MY HOME PATHWAY collects information about your transactions with our company and some of our partners. This includes billing and payment information and information about your use of our products and service offerings. This information will only be shared with third parties who perform tasks required to complete purchase transactions (such as fulfilling orders and processing credit card payments).

MY HOME PATHWAY automatically collects and records certain information from the computer, mobile phone, or other device you use to access the Site, including your MY HOME PATHWAY cookie information, device type, IP address, browser type, browser language, the Web pages you request, location information, and the date and time of your request. Our third-party service providers may also collect such information. We receive data about you whenever you interact with the Site, such as when you look at or search for a topic, product, or other information contained on the site. When you post things like photos or videos on the Site, we may also receive additional related data (or metadata), such as the time, date, and place you took the photo or video.
Your reviews, comments, questions and answers, posts, followers, groups, businesses and professionals that you have done business with, topics and users you follow, profile information (including your name), and any other information that you post to the Site are meant for public consumption. We may display this content on the Site, collect and store it, and further distribute it to a wider audience through third party sites and services. Please also keep in mind that whenever you voluntarily make other personal information (e.g. your home address) available online for viewing by third parties by posting it on the Site, that information is public and can be seen, collected and used by others besides us. We cannot be responsible for any unauthorized third party use of such information.
We may collect and store information about your location if you enable your computer or mobile device to send us location information. MY HOME PATHWAY will not collect your specific location information without your consent. However, we may ask your consent to using location-enabled services on your Device so that we can collect, share and process information about your specific location to enhance our Services and provide better offers to you, using things like GPS or Wi-Fi access point information. You may be able to change the settings on your computer or mobile device to prevent it from providing us with such information. We may also use information like your IP address or other Device Identifiers for approximate location information, like your city or state. Contacts: When you invite your friends to join the Site by providing their contact information or allowing us to use your address book from your computer, mobile device, or other sites, we may use and store your friends contact information long enough to process your requests.
When you send email or other communications to MY HOME PATHWAY, we may retain those communications in order to process your inquiries, respond to your requests and improve our services. As part of our credit educational or other services, you may also receive SMS text messages, push alerts on your phone, and emails when there is a new action or related item from our platform alert. These alert messages will also be logged.
Some of our Services may be provided through an application on your mobile, tablet computer, or similar device (Mobile Application). Our Mobile Application may collect the same types of information described above, including Personal Information or other information that you provide (e.g. name, age, gender, address), or Usage Information that is automatically collected and stored. We may also collect and use technical data and related information, including but not limited to, preferred language, phone number or other unique Device Identifiers assigned to your mobile device, technical information about your mobile device, system and application software, and peripherals, that is gathered periodically to facilitate the provision of software updates, product support and other services to you (if any) related to such Mobile Applications.

Data Protection and Security:
MY HOME PATHWAY takes precautions to secure your personal information. If and when we ask you to provide your personal information, we do so through a connection that uses Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) protocol. This protocol provides security for your information by encrypting it as it travels from your computer to our computer. For security purposes, we then move all of the personal information that we collect or obtain about you to a secure environment on our proprietary network that has controls in place to limit access to and secure the data maintained within it.
Disclosure & Sharing of Information
Under data protection law, we can only use your personal information if we have a proper reason for doing so, e.g.,:
To comply with our legal and regulatory obligations;
For the performance of our contract with you or to take steps at your request before entering into a contract;
For our legitimate interests or those of a third party; or
Where you have given consent.
A legitimate interest is when we have a business or commercial reason to use your information, so long as this is not overridden by your own rights and interests.
We may share information that you have provided during use of our Services to match you with products or services from our partners, or under the following circumstances:
When MY HOME PATHWAY shares information about you with third-party partners, some of those third parties may also perform a soft inquiry or promotional inquiry on your credit file based on the information MY HOME PATHWAY shares with them. These inquiries will not affect your credit. However, if you apply for a line of credit or a loan directly with one or more of our third-party lender partners, those lenders may make a hard credit inquiry of your credit file before approving your application.
Under confidentiality agreements, we provide information to trusted partners working with or on behalf of MY HOME PATHWAY. These companies may use your information to help us communicate offers from our company and our partner companies to you. These companies, however, have no independent right to share this information.
We may use third party service providers or vendors to support or perform certain aspects of the Services on our or your behalf, such as hosting the Services, designing or operating the Services’ features, tracking the Services’ analytics, providing data used, directly or indirectly, in connection with the Services, marketing the Services, enabling MY HOME PATHWAY to contact you with offers or performing other administrative services.

MY HOME PATHWAY may through its Services send you email, text messages or mobile device push notifications from time to time. These communications may contain sensitive credit information, such as your credit score, creditor names, personalized savings offers, or other information about your credit.

Confidentiality & Security
MY HOME PATHWAY takes your privacy and security very seriously, and we follow generally accepted industry standards to protect against unauthorized access to or unauthorized alteration, disclosure or destruction of data, both during transmission and once we receive it. In particular, we:
We limit access to personal information about you to employees, contractors, and agents who we believe reasonably need to come into contact with that information to provide products or services to you or in order to do their jobs.
We limit access to Social Security numbers to help protect against their loss or misuse and do not disclose Social Security numbers to third parties except where such disclosure is required or permitted by law.
We regularly back up the information we collect online to protect against loss.
We have physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards to protect personal information about you. Some of the safeguards that we use include: SSL encryption, firewalls and password protections.
However, no data transmission over the Internet, mobile device or information storage technology can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. Therefore, while we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.
