- Information We CollectWe collect information required to verify your identity, to determine whether or not you qualify for one of our loan products, and to process your account including deducting automatic payments. We collect information that includes your bank statements, credit card statements, your average bank balance, personal and business credit history, tax ID number, social security number, bank account information and payment behavior. We also obtain your credit score from the three credit bureaus. Once you are a customer, we may reach out to you for information again if you decide to renew your loan.

Your information is held securely by Berkman Funding and our trusted partners. We may share your basic information (Name, Company Name, Phone, Email Address and Requested Loan Amount) with one of our business partners.
- Security of InformationBerkman Funding takes the security of your information very seriously. Berkman Funding protects your information using bank-level data security: 128 bit-encryption and a Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) protocol.
If you allow Berkman Funding to see your banking information online rather than in paper form, it is on a read-only basis. We do not have access to change, edit, or modify bank account information in any way.
