Help you to find a loan product or service. If you submit a request for a loan product or service offered  through this website, we will share the personal information contained in your request form, such as your full name, physical address, telephone number, property location and self-assessed value, and social security number, with lenders strictly to process and fulfill your request, to third party service providers, to companies that perform marketing services on our behalf, to other financial institutions with whom we have joint marketing agreements, and to others you direct us to share your information with.

Confidentiality and Security. The security of your personal information is very important to Great Northern Mortgage Corp. and we take a number of steps to safeguard it. For example: 

• We limit access to personal information to those employees or agents who assist us    in providing requested products and services to you. Employees are required to    comply with our strict policies and procedures regarding the handling of your    personal information. Employees who violate these policies are subject to our    normal disciplinary process.
• We maintain electronic, physical, and procedural safeguards that comply with    federal regulations to protect your nonpublic personal information.
• We use industry standard data encryption technologies when transferring and    receiving consumer data on the GetLowRate.com website.
• We devote considerable resources to the maintenance of secure Internet    communications to help ensure that your transactions with us are conducted in a    safe environment.

We want to protect the privacy of the personal information that you provide.  To do so, the on-line ordering of your Personal Credit Report or other products and services will require the use of a secure browser such as Netscape Navigator 6.0 or higher or Microsoft Internet Explorer 5.0 or higher. Your Internet browser must support SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) with 128-bit encryption.  This program encrypts the data you provide before transmission, and then we decrypt the data upon receipt.

Is Credit Card Information Secure?
We care about the safety and security of your transaction. We use certified encryption and the https security protocol to communicate with your browser software. This method is the industry standard security protocol, which makes it extremely difficult for anyone else to intercept the credit card information you send to us. Companies we work with to process credit card transactions also use high grade encryption and security protocols.

Dispute resolution
ANY CLAIM OR CONTROVERSY ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING TO THE USE OF GETLOWRATE.COM SERVICES, TO THE GOODS OR SERVICES PROVIDED BY GETLOWRATE.COM, OR TO ANY ACTS OR OMISSIONS FOR WHICH YOU MAY CONTEND GETLOWRATE.COM IS LIABLE, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO ANY CLAIM OR CONTROVERSY AS TO ARBITRABILITY (“DISPUTE”), SHALL BE FINALLY, AND EXCLUSIVELY, SETTLED BY AN ARBITRATION VENUE IN QUEENS COUNTY, NEW YORK. 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 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 toGetLowRate.com. In any arbitration, GetLowRate.com 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. To begin the arbitration process, a party must make a written demand therefore. Any judgment upon the award rendered by the arbitrators may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction in Queens County, New York. 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.

THIS AGREEMENT PROVIDES THAT ALL DISPUTES BETWEEN YOU AND GETLOWRATE.COM 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 GetLowRate.com 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 andGetLowRate.com, the parties agree that jurisdiction over and venue of any suit shall be exclusively in the state and federal courts sitting in Queens County, New York. 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.

This Agreement constitutes the entire agreement between you and GetLowRate.com and it supersedes all prior or contemporaneous communications, promises and proposals, whether oral, written or electronic, between you and GetLowRate.com with respect to the web site and information, products and services associated with it. This Agreement shall be subject to and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of New York, 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. In the event of a merger of Great Northern Mortgage, Corp. with another entity, all clients' information will become the property of the company Great Northern Mortgage, Corp. will be merging with. In the event of bankruptcy, if Great Northern Mortgage, Corp. will cease to exist, all clients' information will be destroyed. All rights not expressly granted herein are reserved.
