Completing Online Forms
When you complete a form online, such as an online mortgage application, PrimeLending has programs in place to protect it. The information you supply is encrypted and then decoded to begin processing when it arrives to PrimeLending. If you would like to feel more secure as you work with your confidential information online, you can look for a couple features in your web browser that will provide you assurance that your information is protected. First, you can look for a lock icon, typically found in a lower corner of your web window or at the end of the window where the web address appears. Also, within the web address, you can look for it to read https:// at the beginning of the URL. With it typically reading https://, the addition of the "s" means the site you are visiting is secure. With PrimeLending, you are covered!
When emailing your PrimeLending contacts, please keep in mind the security settings from which you are transmitting this information. While information we share via email within our organization is guarded and secure, messages emailed in from outside providers cannot be guaranteed. When communicating with your PrimeLending contacts, please be sure only to send confidential information (account numbers, social security numbers, etc…) from secure email services. If you are not sure of the security settings of your email, it is often safer to provide confidential information via the postal system, by calling or through visiting the office location.
