RecentRates, sometimes referred to as “RVNU LLC”, “RecentRates.com,” or “we,” is dedicated to taking security measures to protect your privacy online. The following outlines the steps we’ve taken to ensure that RecentRates.com is a secure website, and also provides you with details on how we treat, share, and manage the personal information you may submit to us.
Collection and Use of Information
RecentRates will collect and utilize personal information about you to respond to your request for products and services offered through its website. This information could be used to notify you about products, services, and other opportunities we think would be of interest to you. Even though personal information we collected from you may be publicly available (via government records or available via widely distributed media), we will treat all personal information submitted by you as non-public. The information we collect on this website includes but is not limited to 1) full name, 2) email address, 3) physical address, 4) telephone number, 5) personal financial details, and when appropriate, 6) your social security number. Such information submitted by you will be in connection with your inquiry about financial products or services such as mortgage loans, personal loans, credit cards, or other financial products.
RecentRates may also collect demographic information, which is information such as gender, zip code, or any information that is not tied to your personal information. In addition, we might receive information about you from other sources for tracking purposes. Like other websites, we also automatically receive and record certain types of information every time you visit us. We use “cookies” and the other information to enhance your experience and present you with personalized offers. Likewise, we sometimes use third-party advertising companies to serve and track advertisements appearing on our website. These companies may employ cookies and action tags to measure advertising effectiveness. Any information that these third parties collect via cookies and action tags is completely anonymous.
The security of your personal information is important to us. When you enter sensitive information (such as credit card number and/or social security number) on our financial inquiry forms, we encrypt that information using secure socket layer technology (SSL).

RecentRates.com is not acting as a lender or a broker ("Service Provider"). The information provided by you to RecentRates.com is not an application for a mortgage loan nor is it used to pre-qualify you with any lender. Leading Service Providers, who participate in our matching engine, may have loan products available matching the criteria you submit via our forms.
