In addition, once your business becomes a REI Loans customer, we may obtain additional personal information about you, either in connection with data processing, servicing or maintaining your loan, or if you decide to renew your loan or enter into other loans.
When you visit our Websites, we also collect non-personal information, such as the IP address of the device you use to connect to the Internet. In addition, we gather information such as what browser and which version of it you are using, the type of operating system you have, and which site you came from or advertisement you viewed or clicked on.

E. How do we protect your personal information?
We implement a variety of security measures to maintain the safety of your personal information. All credit card transactions are processed through a gateway provider and are not stored or processed on our servers.
Your personal information is contained behind secured networks and is only accessible by a limited number of persons who have special access rights to such encrypted systems, and are required to keep the information confidential. In addition, all website traffic and information you supply is encrypted via Secure Socket Layer (“SSL”) technology.
F. Do we use “cookies”?
These technologies are used in analyzing trends, administering the Websites, tracking users’ movements around the Websites and to gather demographic information about our user base as a whole. We may receive reports based on the use of these technologies by these companies on an individual as well as an aggregated basis.
You can choose to have your computer warn you each time a cookie is being sent, or you can choose to turn off all cookies. You do this through your browser settings. If you disable cookies, some features of our Websites may become disabled, and some aspects of the Websites may not function properly.
Deleting cookies does not delete Flash objects. You can learn more about Flash objects - including how to control and disable them - through the Adobe interface. If you choose to delete Flash objects from our Websites, then you may not be able to access and use all or part of the Websites or benefit from the information and services offered.
We also may use pixel tags – tiny graphic images also known as clear GIFs or web beacons – to tell us what parts of our Websites that you have visited, to measure the effectiveness of any searches you may do on our Websites, or to interact with analytical tools or other marketing tools that gather data and customer usage information.
G. Third party links.
We currently do not include or offer third party products or services on our Websites.
H. Website usage data.
Our Websites track usage data, including, for example, your IP address, your browser type and version, which pages you view, which page, if any, linked you to our site, and which link, if any, you follow off of our Websites. We use this data in the aggregate and on an individual level to better understand website activity to improve our site offerings, to reconstruct activity from a session or by a user, for troubleshooting and issue resolution purposes. We may also use this data to provide you a more personalized website experience, assistance with technical support questions, and to send you special offers, product and service updates, or other promotional materials that are relevant and tailored to your interests. If you do not want to receive these offers or promotions, simply indicate your contact preferences during the registration process, or within any future communications.
I. Do our Websites respond to “do not track” signals?
We do not respond to “do not track” signals or similar mechanisms – where a visitor to our Websites requests that we disable the collection of information about the visitor’s online activities, including navigation around our website and the service. We may also permit third parties to collect aggregate usage information on our website, and they may also not respond to “do not track” signals.
J. Do our Websites allow third party behavioral tracking?
K. Contacting us by telephone.
If you communicate with us by telephone, we may monitor or record the call. This is done for reasons such as maintaining the integrity of your account, providing effective and timely service, improving our products, and assessing the performance of our employees.
If you are a California resident, California law may provide you with additional rights regarding our use of your personal information. To learn more about your California privacy rights, please see our Privacy Notice Supplement for California Residents Only (“CA Supplement”) at the end of this Policy.
California’s “Shine the Light” law (Civil Code § 1798.83) and the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 (Civil Code § 1798.100, et. sec.) permits California residents to request certain information regarding our disclosure of certain personal information to third parties for their direct marketing purposes. To make such a request, please send an email to the email address at the end of the CA Supplement or write us at the mailing address at the end of this Policy.
Unless the law allows, we will not sell, share, transfer or otherwise disclose non-public personal information of California consumers to or with any non-affiliated third parties, without the prior consent of the California consumer to whom the non-public personal information relates. We may share information with your consent, or to service your accounts. We will also limit sharing within our corporate family to the extent required by California law.
Nevada residents who wish to exercise their sale opt-out rights under Nevada Revised Statutes Chapter 603A may send an email to the email address at the end of this Policy or write us at the mailing address at the end of this Policy. Please note, however, that we currently do not sell data triggering that statute’s opt-out requirements.
Unless the law allows, we will not share non-public personal information we collect about Vermont consumers with any non-affiliated third parties, unless the law allows. For example, we may share information with your consent, to service your accounts, or under joint marketing agreements with other financial institutions with which we have joint marketing agreements. We will not share information about your creditworthiness within our corporate family except with your consent. We may share information about our transactions or experiences with you within our corporate family without your consent.
O. European Economic Area.
We do not market our products or services to individuals in the European Economic Area, and the Websites are not directed toward individuals located in the European Economic Area.
P. How you can help keep your personal information safe.
We have implemented appropriate technical and organizational measures to ensure a level of security of personal data appropriate to the risk.
There are many steps you can take to help keep your information safe. First, choose a complex, independent password for use on our Websites. You should not include anything related to your birthday, address, phone number, PIN number or any other easily guessable information in your password.
Second, exercise caution when using public computers or WiFi networks, such as at a coffee shop or library. To best protect your personal information and login information, do not use public computers or public WiFi to access your accounts. If you must do so, you should ensure that you log out of your account entirely.
In recent years, individuals, businesses and even governments have seen a rise in “phishing” attacks. Phishing occurs when someone attempts to obtain your password or other sensitive information. Scammers often do this by impersonating a trusted user or offering a compelling reason to open a malicious email attachment, click on a link or give over information. We will not ask for your sensitive information (such as a password), over email or other unsecure methods or through any site not under the reiloans.com
The safety and security of your information also depends on you. We urge you to be careful about giving out information in public areas of the Website like message boards. The information you share in public areas may be viewed by any user of the Websites.
Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we take reasonable measures to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee the security of your personal information transmitted to our Website. Any transmission of personal information is at your own risk. We are not responsible for circumvention of any privacy settings or security measures contained on the Websites.
We do not knowingly collect personal information from individuals under the age of 18. By using the Websites or by otherwise communicating with us, you represent and warrant to us that you are at least 18 years of age. Individuals under the age of 18 may not share any of their personal information with us.
R. Change of control.
Your personal information may be transferred in connection with a sale, merger, transfer, exchange or other disposition (whether of assets, stock or otherwise) of all or a portion of REI Loans’s businesses. Your personal information may also be transferred to a buyer or other successor in the event of a merger, divestiture, restructuring, reorganization, dissolution, or other sale or transfer of some or all of our assets, whether as a going concern or as part of bankruptcy, liquidation, or similar proceeding, in which personal information held by us about our Website users is among the assets transferred.
S. Information regarding international data transfers.
We are based in the United States and our computer servers are located in the United States. Accordingly, all personal data in our possession and control is collected and processed by us in the United States. Any party that provides personal data to us is thereby transferring such data to the United States, and is consenting to the transfer of their personal data to the United States. Please note that the United States may have data privacy and data protection laws that are less stringent than those of your home country. Individuals who access the Websites from outside the United States do so on their own initiative and are responsible for compliance with local laws, rules and regulations. In certain circumstances, courts, law enforcement agencies, regulatory agencies, or security authorities in other countries may be entitled to access your personal information.

- Categories of personal information that we “sold” or disclosed for a business purpose about you.

Once we receive and confirm such a verifiable consumer request, we will delete (and direct our service providers to delete) your personal information from our records, unless an exception applies.
Nevertheless, we may deny your deletion request if retaining the information is necessary for us or our service provider(s) to:
- Complete a transaction for which we collected the personal information, provide a good or service that you requested, take actions reasonably anticipated within the context of our ongoing business relationship with you, or otherwise perform our contract with you.
- Detect security incidents, protect against malicious, deceptive, fraudulent or illegal activity, or prosecute those responsible for such activities.
- Debug to identify and repair errors that impair existing intended functionality.
- Exercise free speech, ensure the right of another consumer to exercise their free speech rights, or exercise another right provided for by law.
- Comply with the California Electronic Communications Privacy Act (Cal. Penal Code § 1546 et. seq.).
- Enable internal uses that are reasonably aligned with consumer expectations based on your relationship with us.
- Comply with a legal obligation.
- Make other internal and lawful uses of that information that are compatible with the context in which it has been provided to us.
C. Submitting Your Requests to Know and Requests to Delete
To submit a request to know or a request to delete to us, you must submit a “verifiable consumer request” (as defined below) to us by writing us at the mailing address below, calling us at the toll-free number below, or sending an email to the email address below.
REI Loans, LLC
205 E. 42nd St.
New York, NY 10017
Under the CCPA, a “verifiable consumer request” means a request that is made by a consumer, by a consumer on behalf of the consumer’s minor child, or by a natural person or a person registered with the Secretary of State, authorized by the consumer to act on the consumer’s behalf, and that we can reasonably verify, to be the consumer about whom we have collected personal information.
The verifiable consumer request must:
- Provide sufficient information that allows us to reasonably verify you are the person about whom we collected personal information or an authorized representative. Specifically, you must provide the following information with your request:
- Your full legal name;
- Your date of birth;
- Your email address that we have in our records; and
- The last four digits of your Social Security Number.
- Describe your request with sufficient detail that allows us to properly understand, evaluate and respond to it.
Only you, or someone legally authorized to act on your behalf, may make a verifiable consumer request related to your personal information. You may make a verifiable consumer request on behalf of your minor child. We cannot respond to your request or provide you with personal information if we cannot verify your identity or authority to make the request and confirm the personal information relates to you. To verify your identity or authority to make the request, we may match data points you provide with your request, with data points that we maintain.
If you choose to use an authorized agent to submit a request to know or a request to delete to us, we will require that you (i) provide us with a copy of the written permission you gave the authorized agent to submit the request to us; and (ii) verify your own identity directly with us. We may deny a request from an agent that does not submit proof that such agent has been authorized by you to act on your behalf.
If you submit a request in a manner that is not one of the designated methods of submission described above, or if your request is deficient in some manner unrelated to the verification process, we will either: (i) treat the request as if it had been submitted in accordance with our designated manner, or (ii) provide you with specific directions on how to submit the request or remedy any deficiencies with the request, if applicable.
Making a verifiable consumer request does not require you to create an account with us. We will only use personal information provided in a verifiable consumer request to verify the requestor’s identity or authority to make the request.
D. Response Timing and Format
Upon receiving a verifiable consumer request, we will confirm receipt of it within 10 days and provide information about whether and how we will process the request.
We will deliver our written response either by mail or electronically. We will endeavor to respond to a verifiable consumer request within forty-five days of its receipt. If we require more time (up to 45 additional days), we will inform you of the reason and extension period in writing.
Any information we deliver in response to your request may be delivered by mail or electronically. If it is provided electronically, we will take reasonable steps to provide that the information will be portable and, to the extent technically feasible, in a readily useable format that would allow you to transmit the information to another entity without hindrance.
Any disclosures we provide will only cover the 12-month period preceding the date we received the verifiable consumer request.
We do not charge a fee to process or respond to your verifiable consumer request unless the verifiable consumer request is excessive, repetitive or manifestly unfounded. If we determine that the verifiable consumer request warrants a fee, we will tell you why we made that decision and provide you with a cost estimate before completing your request.
We will not discriminate against you for exercising any of your CCPA rights. Unless permitted by the CCPA, we will not:
- Deny you goods or services.
- Charge you different prices or rates for goods or services, including through granting discounts or other benefits, or imposing penalties.
- Provide you a different level or quality of goods or services.
- Suggest that you may receive a different price or rate for goods or services or a different level or quality of goods or services.
VII. Changes to This Supplement
We reserve the right to amend this Supplement at our discretion and at any time. When we make changes to this Supplement, we will post the updated notice on our websites and update the Supplement’s effective date. Your continued use of our products and services and your continued use of our websites after the posting of changes constitutes your acceptance of such changes.
