In addition to the information we collect from cookies, we also obtain information which you provide to us online - for example, when you use our tools and calculators or when you submit an application or otherwise communicate with us. In some cases, we retain both the cookie information and/or the information you provide to us online - for example, to complete a transaction you requested or to keep historical records of your past transactions.
