To that end, we employ and maintain extensive physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards to ensure your non-public personal information is protected as a client of Wallick & Volk, Inc.

This information may include:
We do not access information about your identity while you browse our website. Although we collect information about the date, time and area of our website that you visited, you remain anonymous to us. Personally identifying information about you is only collected if you decide to sign up for an account with us, and/or apply for a loan through us.
We use both session ID cookies and persistent cookies. We use session cookies to make it easier for you to navigate our site. A session ID cookie expires when you close your browser. A persistent cookie remains on your hard drive for an extended period of time. You can remove persistent cookies by following directions provided in your Internet browser’s “help” file. We use session cookies to tailor your experience on our site. Persistent cookies also enable us to track and target the interests of our users to enhance the experience on our site.
If you reject cookies, you may still use our site, but your ability to use some areas of our site will be limited.
Wallick & Volk, Inc., or one of its third party service providers, may employ a software technology called clear gifs (a.k.a. pixel tags), to collect or receive information from our website(s) or elsewhere on the internet. This information is used to provide measurement services and targeted ads that help us better manage the content on our site(s) and the effectiveness of advertising efforts. These are graphics with a unique identifier, similar in function to cookies, and are used to track the online movements of Web users. In contrast to cookies, which are stored on a user’s computer hard drive, clear gifs are embedded invisibly on Web pages and are about the size of a period. The information gathered by clear gifs is tied to our clients’ personally identifiable information.
Clear gifs may also be utilized in our HTML-based emails to let us know which have been opened by recipients. This allows us to gauge the effectiveness of certain communications and the effectiveness of our marketing campaigns.
Wallick & Volk, Inc., understands that you may choose to opt-out of online behavioral advertising served on our websites or on other sites that you visit.
Please be aware that even if you opt-out, you will still see ads online, and in some cases data may be collected about your browsing activity, but companies will not use this information to select the ads you see online.
If your personally identifiable information changes, or if you no longer desire our service, you may request us to correct, update, delete, or deactivate it by emailing our Client Support at email@example.com. We will respond to your request to access within 30 days. We will retain your information for as long as your account is active or as needed to provide you services.
