What we do with your information
Financial companies choose how they share your personal information. Federal law gives consumers the right to limit some but not all sharing. The types of personal information we collect and share depend on the product or service you have with us. This information can include your social security number, income, account balances, payment history, credit history, and credit scores.
All financial companies need to share customers' personal information to run their everyday business. In the section below, we list the reasons SWBC Mortgage Corporation chooses to share and whether you can limit this sharing.
You CAN NOT limit the information we share for:
- Our everyday business purposes—such as to process your transactions, maintain your account(s), respond to court orders and legal investigations, or report to credit bureaus.

Why can't I limit all sharing?
