When you request other information from us through our various on-line forms, we need to know your name, e-mail address, mailing address and telephone numbers so we can be sure to get in touch with you when and how you ask us to. For instance, when you apply for an online mortgage loan with Augusta, we need to know your name, social security number, e-mail address, mailing address, income, debt and asset information. This information is necessary to process your mortgage application and to obtain your credit report. We will not obtain your credit report without your authorization, but we cannot approve you for a mortgage loan without it. We can, however, pre-qualify you for a mortgage loan without your credit report.
How we protect your financial information
Our secure socket layer software (SSL) encrypts all information you input before it is sent to us. Even though you may not see a padlock in the bottom of your browser window, rest assured that all the information you enter is encrypted before being sent to our order center. The information we receive from you also is protected against unauthorized access once we receive it. We limit access to your information to employees who have a business reason for accessing it. We also educate our employees about the importance of your privacy through our educational programs and company policies.
