BulletSecurity Policy

Resource Mortgages uses extensive and sophisticated secure technology to protect your data and transmissions between you, Resource Mortgages, banks, lenders and loan brokers participating in this Web site (we refer to all of these as "Lenders"), and real estate professionals participating in this web site (the "real estate professionals"). Here are the highlights:
Transmission between browsers and our web server is implemented using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology. This technology requires an SSL-capable browser such as MS Internet Explorer 3.0 (or later) or Netscape Navigator 2.0 (or later). Transmissions between Resource Mortgages and participating Lenders or Resource Mortgages and real estate professionals are encrypted using public key cryptography algorithms with a minimum key size of 128 bits. Our database is physically separated from our web server and is protected by a physical firewall. Although Resource Mortgages has taken these reasonable and appropriate measures to ensure that your personal information is delivered and disclosed only in accordance with your instructions, Resource Mortgages cannot and does not guarantee that the personal information you provide will not be intercepted by others and decrypted.

BulletLoan Origination Services

All of the information you have provided in your loan request is true and complete. You authorize Resource Mortgages to check your credit history, and to provide your information, including your credit history, to up to five Lenders; provided, however, that if one of the Lenders is unable to make an offer, Resource Mortgages may submit your information to additional Lenders until such time as you have received five loan offers (up to a maximum of 9 total Lenders). If you complete the first page of the loan request form (by hitting the "Continue" button on "Page 1: Tell Us About Your Loan") but leave portions of the form incomplete, Resource Mortgages will transmit your loan request form to up to 5 of its lenders who can help you complete your loan request and possibly extend you loan offers. By completing the first page of the loan request form, you authorize Resource Mortgages to transmit your loan request form to up to 5 lenders. No credit check will be performed on behalf of Resource Mortgages if you have not fully completed your loan request. In addition, if you qualify for the CarLoan.com, Car.com or Auto Second Chance Program, Resource Mortgages will share your information with one of the partners in that program. These partners should also be considered Lenders. You further authorize the Lenders along with any additional Lenders or investors necessary to complete your loan transaction, to check your credit history and to return their decision to you via the Resource Mortgages system. At the present time, Fair Isaac and Co.(the company that provides "FICO" credit scores) reports that, for mortgage, home equity or auto loans, it consolidates all credit inquiries that occur within a 14-day period into one inquiry for scoring purposes. You understand that Lenders may keep this form, whether or not you are qualified for a loan with them. Resource Mortgages is not a lender and does not make loans or credit decisions in connection with loans. Resource Mortgages does not endorse or recommend the products of any particular Lender on any of its websites. Resource Mortgages is not an agent of either you, the User, or any participating Lender. Resource Mortgages's services are administrative and consultative only. You should rely on your own judgment in deciding which available loan product best suits your needs and financial means. The Lender is solely responsible for its services to you, and you agree that Resource Mortgages shall not be liable for any damages or costs of any type arising out of or in any way connected with your use of such services.

Loans may only be made to residents of, or secured by real property located in, states where participating Lenders are licensed or authorized to make such loans, as indicated herein under the section titled "Lenders." Lenders are not attempting to make loans outside of their authorized states or country by participating in and offering their products on this Web site. Resource Mortgages and/or participating Lenders expressly reserve the right to discontinue, suspend or terminate the offering of any loan product in any specific state through this Web site. Resource Mortgages does not guarantee acceptance into any particular loan program or specific loan terms or conditions with any participating Lender; loan approval standards are established and maintained solely by individual Lenders. Likewise, Resource Mortgages does not guarantee that the loan terms or rates offered and made available by participating Lenders through this Web site are the best terms or lowest rates available in the market. Unless expressly stated in writing, nothing contained herein shall constitute an offer or promise for a loan commitment or interest rate lock-in agreement. Resource Mortgages does not charge you, the User, a fee to use our service. Resource Mortgages is paid a fee by participating Lenders for the goods, facilities and services provided.

BulletIndemnity

As a condition of use of this Web site and/or Resource Mortgages's services, you agree to indemnify Resource Mortgages and its suppliers, participating Lenders, or real estate professionals from and against any and all liabilities, expenses (including attorneys' fees) and damages arising out of claims resulting from your use of this Web site, including without limitation any claims alleging facts that if true would constitute a breach by you of this Agreement. LINKS TO THIRD PARTIES

This Web site may contain links to Web sites maintained by third parties. Such links are provided for your convenience and reference only. Resource Mortgages does not operate or control in any respect any information, software, products or services available on such Web sites. Resource Mortgages's inclusion of a link to a Web site does not imply any endorsement of the services or the site, its contents, or its sponsoring organization. ERRORS AND DELAYS Resource Mortgages is not responsible for any errors or delays in responding to a qualification form or referral form caused by an incorrect e-mail address provided by you or other technical problems beyond our reasonable control. DISPUTE RESOLUTION

Any claim or controversy arising out of or relating to the use of this Web site, to the goods or services provided by Resource Mortgages, or to any acts or omissions for which you may contend Resource Mortgages is liable, including but not limited to any claim or controversy as to arbitrability ("Dispute"), shall be finally, and exclusively, settled by arbitration. The arbitration shall be held before one arbitrator under the commercial arbitration rules of the American Arbitration Association ("AAA") in force at that time. The arbitration shall be venued in Oakland County, Michigan except for Maine consumers for whom the location shall be a place reasonably convenient to the consumer. The arbitrator shall be selected pursuant to the AAA rules. Should no AAA rule regarding the selection of an arbitrator be in effect, the consumer shall select an arbitrator from a panel of arbitrators acceptable to Resource Mortgages. In any arbitration, Resource Mortgages will pay the filing fee, plus the costs associated with the first day of arbitration, with the remaining costs of arbitration paid by the non-prevailing party, provided, however, that in Maine any cost to the consumer shall be limited to the cost of filing a court case. To begin the arbitration process, a party must make a written demand therefor.

Any judgment upon the award rendered by the arbitrators may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction in Oakland County, Michigan. The arbitrators shall not have the power to award damages in connection with any Dispute in excess of actual compensatory damages and shall not multiply actual damages or award consequential, punitive or exemplary damages, and each party irrevocably waives any claim thereto, except in Maine where state law will control all rights and remedies in the arbitration. The agreement to arbitrate shall not be construed as an agreement to the joinder or consolidation of an arbitration under this agreement with an arbitration of disputes or claims of any non-party, regardless of the nature of the issues or disputes involved.

THIS AGREEMENT PROVIDES THAT ALL DISPUTES BETWEEN YOU AND Resource Mortgages WILL BE RESOLVED BY BINDING ARBITRATION. YOU THUS GIVE UP YOUR RIGHT TO GO TO COURT TO ASSERT OR DEFEND YOUR RIGHTS. YOU ALSO GIVE UP YOUR RIGHT TO PARTICIPATE IN OR BRING CLASS ACTIONS. YOUR RIGHTS WILL BE DETERMINED BY NEUTRAL ARBITRATORS AND NOT A JUDGE OR JURY.

You are entitled to a fair hearing, but the arbitration procedures are simpler and more limited than rules applicable in court. Arbitrator decisions are enforceable as any court order and are subject to very limited review by a court. By using Resource Mortgages's goods and services you consent to these restrictions.

Should a Dispute arise and should the arbitration provisions herein become inapplicable or unenforceable, or in any instance of any lawsuit between you and Resource Mortgages, the parties agree that jurisdiction over and venue of any suit shall be exclusively in the state and federal courts sitting in Oakland County, Michigan. If either party employs attorneys to enforce any right in connection with any Dispute or lawsuit the prevailing party shall be entitled to recover reasonable attorneys' fees.

BulletOther Terms

This Agreement constitutes the entire agreement between you and Resource Mortgages and it supersedes all prior or contemporaneous communications, promises and proposals, whether oral, written or electronic, between you and Resource Mortgages with respect to this Web site and information, software, products and services associated with it. This Agreement shall be subject to and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of Michigan, excluding its conflict of laws principles. If any part of this Agreement is determined to be invalid or unenforceable pursuant to applicable law including, but not limited to, the warranty disclaimers and liability limitations set forth above, then the invalid or unenforceable provision will be deemed superseded by a valid enforceable provision that most closely matches the intent of the original provision, and the remainder of the Agreement shall continue in effect. A printed version of this Agreement and of any notice given in electronic form shall be admissible in judicial or administrative proceedings based upon or relating to this Agreement to the same extent and subject to the same conditions as other business documents and records originally generated and maintained in printed form. All rights not expressly granted herein are reserved.
