Submitting information to us is voluntary. However, if you would like to receive information on a loan-related product from one of our network of third-party loan providers (“Loan Providers”), you must submit the required information, even if you do not actually enter into a formal application with any Loan Provider.
Use of Data Collected
We use the information we collect to enhance your experience at our Website and to help us to offer content we determine may be of interest to you. We may also use your personal, demographic, and profile data to improve our Website, conduct statistical analysis, and for marketing, promotional, editorial, or feedback purposes.

Disclosure of Data to Third Parties
By using this Website, you agree that you may be contacted in any manner contemplated in this section even if your number is found on a do-not-call registry or similar registry. If you choose to provide personal information, it will be used for and/or shared with trusted third parties such as Loan Providers and/or other financial service providers, credit bureaus, and for marketing products and services that you might find of interest.
All of the lenders we work with can offer free rate quotes with no impact to your credit whatsoever. We have some Loan Providers that are able to issue pre-approval quotes without performing any credit check, and other Loan Providers that can issue pre-approvals and approvals via a soft credit check (no impact to your FICO credit score or rating). We have some Loan Providers, that once matched with, may need to collect additional information from you including your SSN, for the purpose of doing a soft credit inquiry to determine whether or not to extend potential offers to you. There is no impact on your credit score or rating when a lender performs a soft credit inquiry.
Once pre-approved by a Loan Provider, we matched you with, we will hand you off to that lender for the purpose of you becoming their client, and helping you finalize your loan with them. During the process of finalizing your financing, some Loan Providers may need to perform a hard credit inquiry. Those Loan Providers will ask for your permission prior to doing so. For more information on the difference between hard and soft credit inquiries and how they may affect your credit score, please visit: http//www.experian.com/blogs/news/2012/09/17/credit-score-myths/.
By submitting an application, you authorize us to verify all information that you have provided and acknowledge that this information may be used to verify certain past and/or current credit or payment history information from a third-party source(s). We may utilize Check Loan Verification or other similar consumer-reporting agency for these purposes. We may disclose all or some of the nonpublic personal information about you that we collect to financial service providers that perform services on our behalf, such as the servicer of your personal loan, and to financial institutions with which we have joint marketing arrangements. Such disclosures are made as necessary to effect, administer and enforce the loan you request or authorize and any loan you may request or authorize with other financial institutions with regard to the processing, funding, servicing, repayment, and collection of your loan.

Imperial Valley Auto Loans may employ “cookies” to help customize your access to the Website. A cookie is a piece of data stored on your hard drive containing information about you. Cookies have many benefits to enhance your experience at our Website.

Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. Even in the case where a user rejects a cookie, they may still use our Website. The only drawback to this is that the user will be limited in what he/she can access in some areas on our Website, much like visitor-level access.

We encourage our users to be aware when they leave our site and to read the privacy statements of each and every website that collects personally identifiable information.

It will be clear at the point of collection who is collecting such information and whose privacy statement governs. For example, without limiting the foregoing, we co-brand with insurance brokers, credit reporting agencies and automotive companies.
Warning: It is a scam if a lender looks to charge you money up-front or asks you to put money on any type of pre-paid debit card (like a GreenDot or Vanilla Visa) as insurance for a loan in order to achieve your financing. This is called an advance fee loan scam. None of our Loan Providers will require you to provide them with any amount of money in any way or form prior to receiving your loan. But many other sites on the Internet work with these fraudsters. Don’t become a victim. Click here to learn more about advance fee loan scams and how to spot to them.
