Please read this Privacy Statement carefully.
Section I explains Reliable's policy regarding information Reliable may collect or you might supply to us when you visit this Web site. Reliable's goal in Section I is to inform you about your obligations and the types of information we may collect during your general use or browsing of the Web site. In Section I, the terms "us" and "we" means Reliable.
The terms "you" or "your" means the person visiting this Web site.
SECTION I. GENERAL WEB SITE USE.
You can visit this Web site without giving us any nonpublic personal information about yourself. If you do provide nonpublic personal information, please refer to Section II below to learn how we and Reliable WA protect and handle that information.
This Privacy Statement only applies to Web pages at this URL address. They do not apply to any linked site. Reliable may make changes to this Privacy Statement without notice by posting changes on this Web site, at the sole discretion of Reliable.
B. INFORMATION COLLECTED ON THIS WEB SITE: Aggregate information, including, for example, your country or state of origin, your web browser or search engine, the pages you visit and the length of time of your visits on each page, the number of your visits, the total time spent during your visits, products or services purchased, your domain address or other information Reliable may deem useful with respect to the operability of the Web site, may be collected.
Reliable may also retain nonpublic personal information which you provide to us by e-mail or in information forms placed on this Web site in order to answer your questions or provide products to you (for example, from emails you may send, by filling out and sending information requested on the Web page entitled "Investment," or by filling out and sending in a loan application). If you send nonpublic personal information to this Web site, be sure you read and understand Section II below.
C. COOKIES: In order to provide better service or to address security hazards a cookie may be collected. A cookie is a small piece of information which a Web site stores on your Web browser on your PC and can later retrieve. Cookies may be used for a number of administrative purposes, including storing your preferences for certain kinds of information.
D. WEB SITE SECURITY: Reliable has set up technical security measures such as browser encryption, routers and firewalls to safeguard personal and financial information against unauthorized access. Our servers are located in the state of Oregon.
We use secure socket layer (SSL) encryption technology for browser contact. SSL is technology that is designed to protect information as it crosses the Internet. You can tell if you are visiting a secure area by looking at the padlock symbol at the bottom of your browser screen. If it is "locked," you have an SSL encrypted session. If the padlock symbol is "unlocked," or does not appear on your screen, then you are not
visiting an area of the Web site that utilizes SSL encryption technology.
Presently, emails to us and responses to your inquiries are NOT SSL encrypted.
Email messages will NOT
suffice as written or other legal notice to us or Reliable WA. Because email messages may not be reviewed immediately by Reliable or Reliable WA personnel, email communication should NOT
be used for matters requiring immediate attention.
This Web site may, from time to time, contain links to other Internet Web sites, banner ads or advertisements for the convenience of users in locating information and services that may be of interest. If you use those linked Web sites or advertisements, you may leave this Web site and go to Web sites that we do not control. If you decide to visit those Internet Web sites or advertisers, you do so at your own risk and it is your responsibility to read and comply with the privacy statements on those Web sites. Your right to privacy on linked Web sites is limited to whatever rights are provided to you by the owner of the linked Web site.
