When you visit our website, our webhosting servers collect some technical information about you (e.g. web browser type, IP address) and also track which pages you visit on our site. We use these logs mainly for the purpose of troubleshooting, and they are frequently purged.
Unless you are logged in to our website with a username and password, it is not possible for us to identify you from the information stored in these logs.
If you submit a form to us for a credit application, investment request, contact form or any other form, chances are you will be giving us additional identifying information about yourself. If your browser supports it, the data being transmitted is protected by 256 bit encryption.
Depending on the form, the information you send will either be deleted, or stored on Asset Finance's servers. If the data is stored on our servers, you can access it and/or correct it upon request.
Some forms (particularly single page forms such as contact forms) make use a service provided by Mollom.com. Mollom is a web service that tries to determine the quality of messages posted to a website, and particularly tries to determine whether these messages are to be considered as unsolicited messages (also called "spam").
Form submissions: Loan & Credit Application
As part of some forms (such as the credit application form) you must agree to a Privacy Waiver. A key part of the privacy waiver is giving us permission to carry out the checks we need to do out as part of our loan approval policy.
You should read the privacy waiver carefully, as these checks invovle us giving information and obtaining information from third parties such as credit rating agencies. You must accept the privacy waiver in order to submit your application, because without it we are unable to process and approve it.
