AVH Mortgage does not collect any personal information from visitors to its web site without explicitly requesting the information. If a visitor is just browsing the AVH Mortgage web site, AVH Mortgage does not gather personal information about the visitor, except the consumer’s location.

Visitors may request to be prequalified for a loan on the AVH Mortgage web site. During the prequalification process, AVH Mortgage requests certain personal information, such as name, address, social security number, telephone numbers, e-mail address, and information regarding employment, income, expenses and assets.
AVH Mortgage uses information, provided by a visitor or a third party regarding the visitor, for the primary purpose of providing a loan. Applicants should be aware that when any real estate transaction is closed and the deed of trust is recorded, it becomes open to public inspection.
A credit report is required to complete a request for prequalification; therefore the visitor is given the opportunity to provide his or her consent for AVH Mortgage to obtain his or her credit report. AVH Mortgage uses a third party credit reporting company to obtain the credit reports of all persons named in the request. Credit report information will be safeguarded and is not accessible via the AVH Mortgage web site.

AVH Mortgage has active and in-depth security measures to protect visitors from the loss, alteration and mishandling of submitted information. Only authorized staff members and approved persons will have access to restricted information.
To ensure online mortgage information remains private and inaccessible to unauthorized parties, AVH Mortgage uses Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) server technology, which allows for the confirmation of the identity, certificate and public ID of AVH Mortgage servers.
Additionally, all browser information is encrypted as a numeric code. Only the AVH Mortgage servers and visitor browsers can decode the information. The SSL also detects whether the information has been altered to ensure the best online mortgage security.
Current versions of popular browsers that are SSL compatible include, but are not limited to, Internet Explorer, Chrome, Safari, Firefox and AOL. If the browser displays a latched lock, key or other security symbol, the secured connection is activated.
