Important information about procedures for opening a new loan:

To help the government fight the funding of terrorism and money laundering activities, federal law requires all financial institutions to obtain, verify, and record information that identifies each person who opens an account with us for our Services. When you apply for a loan, we will ask for your name, address, date of birth, and other information that will allow us to identify you. We may also ask for a copy of your driver's license or other identifying documents, and we may use this information to verify your identity or other information you provide.

Collection and use of bank account information:

If we extend credit and provide our Services to you, we will consider the bank account information provided by you as eligible for us to process payments. In addition, as part of our information collection process, we may detect additional bank accounts under the ownership of you. We will consider these additional accounts to be part of the loan application process.

Credit reporting disclosure:

We may make inquiries concerning your credit history and standing to third parties such as credit reporting agencies, and may report information concerning your performance including, but not limited to, missed payments, or other defaults, to credit reporting agencies. Missed payments or other defaults on your loan may be reflected in your credit report.

Accuracy of your account information:

In keeping with reasonable industry standards, we have procedures to ensure that your financial information is accurate, current, and complete. If you believe our records contain inaccurate or incomplete information about you, please notify us. We will investigate your concerns and correct any information we determine to be inaccurate.

Contact and marketing preferences:

Spotloan may contact you by several methods, including but not limited to, electronic mail to any email address you provide, regular U.S. Postal mail to any address we have on file, calling you at any number you provide to us with an auto-dialer or pre-recorded message, and text messaging or via other mobile communications method, if you have provided your mobile telephone number to us. We may use one or all of these methods to contact you about your loan or application for our Services, inform you of promotions, savings, and/or services we believe may interest you, remind you of upcoming payments, and to communicate with you regarding collections and other loan-related issues.

It is your responsibility to keep your contract information up to date with Spotloan. If we are unable to reach you using the contact information we have, we may reach out to third-parties to obtain updated contact information for you. You authorize Spotloan and its authorized representatives to call you using a predictive dialer or other automated telephone dialing device during reasonable hours at any of the phone numbers you provide to us by pre-recorded message or live representative. However, you are not required to provide this authorization as a condition of entering into your loan.
