Homefund Corporation PRIVACY POLICY
At homefund.com, we are committed to respecting and protecting your privacy and security. Homefund.com, owned and operated by Homefund Corporation, has taken extensive measures to protect the security of your personal information and to protect your data from misuse and unauthorized access or disclosure. Homefund Corporation exercises care in providing secure transmission of your information from your computer to our servers. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your information, Homefund Corporation cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us, and you do so at your own risk. Once we receive your transmission, Homefund Corporation uses industry standard efforts to safeguard the confidentiality of your information, such as Firewalls, Secure Socket Layers as well as unique User Name and Password protections. We also restrict internal access of stored data to select employees that have been informed of our privacy policies. However, "perfect security" does not exist on the Internet and we urge you to contact our Privacy Officer if you have concerns involving the security or privacy of your information.
