Right to Access to Specific Information

California residents have the right to request that we disclose certain information about our collection and use of your personal information. Once we receive and confirm your verifiable consumer request, we will disclose to you:

  •  The categories of personal information we collected about you.
  •  The categories of sources for the personal information we collected about you.
  • Our business purpose for collecting or selling that personal information.
  • The categories of third parties to whom we disclosed, sold or shared that personal information (if applicable).
  • The specific pieces of personal information we collected about you.
  • The categories of personal information that we disclosed, sold or shared about you (if applicable).

Right to Correct Personal Information

You have the right to request that we correct any inaccurate personal information, taking into account the nature of the personal information and the purposes of the processing of the personal information. Upon receiving a verifiable request to correct inaccurate personal information, we shall use commercially reasonable efforts to correct the inaccurate personal information as directed by you.

Right to Deletion

You have the right to request that we delete any of your personal information that we collected from you and retained, subject to certain exceptions. Once we receive and confirm your verifiable request, we will delete (and direct our service providers to delete) your personal information from our records, unless an exception applies. We will also ensure that all deletion requests are passed along to applicable third parties, contractors, and services providers, unless an exception applies.

Please note, however, that we may deny your deletion or correction request if retaining the information is necessary for us or our service providers to:

(i) maintain the personal information pursuant to federal, state, or local law or regulation;

(ii) complete the transaction for which the personal information was collected;

(iii) any requests to delete any information created by Mariner concerning an applicant or employee; and

(iv) any requests to correct internal Mariner employment reviews, processes, or similar information.

Right to Limit Use and Disclosure of Sensitive Personal Information

You have the right, at any time, to direct us to limit the use and disclosure of sensitive personal information. Upon receiving a verifiable request to limit the use and disclosure of sensitive personal information, we shall use commercially reasonable efforts as directed by you.

Right to Opt-Out of Sales and Sharing

You have the right, at any time, to direct us not to sell or share your personal information to a third party. Mariner does not currently sell or share personal information covered by this privacy policy. However, you may exercise your right to opt out of sales in the event that Mariner subsequently decides to sell personal information that is subject to the CCPA. If Mariner elects in the future to sell personal information and if we at any time receive direction from you not to sell your personal information, we will not sell your personal information that is subject to the CCPA, as amended, if any, unless you subsequently provide express authorization for such sales.

Exercising Your Rights

To exercise your access and, correction, deletion, and limitation of use and disclosure rights described above, please submit a verifiable request to us by either:

  • Calling us at 877-310-2373, select option 3. Available Monday through Friday, 8:30 am EST to 5:00 pm EST, excluding observed holidays.
  • Filling out an online request at any time by clicking HERE.

To exercise your right to opt-out of the sale or sharing of your personal information to a third party, please call us at 877-310-2373, select option 3 or click the following link: Do Not Sell or Share my Personal Information and/or Limit the Use of My Sensitive Personal Information.

If you are submitting a request on behalf of a California resident, please submit the request through one of the designated methods discussed above. Please attach a written authorization signed by the California resident authorizing you to make the request on their behalf.

You may only make a verifiable request for access or data portability twice within a 12-month period. The verifiable request must:

  • Provide sufficient information that allows us to reasonably verify you are the person about whom we collected personal information or an authorized representative.
  • Describe your request with sufficient detail that allows us to properly understand, evaluate, and respond to it.

We cannot respond to your request or provide you with personal information if we cannot verify your identity or authority to make the request and confirm the personal information relates to you. Making a verifiable request does not require you to create an account with us. We will only use personal information provided in a verifiable request to verify the requestor’s identity or authority to make the request.

Response Timing and Format

We endeavor to respond to a verifiable request within forty-five (45) calendar days of its receipt. If we require more time (up to ninety (90) days), we will inform you of the reason and extension period in writing. If you have an account with us, we will deliver our written response to that account. If you do not have an account with us, we will deliver our written response by mail or electronically, at your option. Any disclosures we provide will only cover the 12-month period preceding the verifiable request’s receipt. The response we provide will also explain the reasons we cannot comply with a request, if applicable. For data access requests, we will select a format technically feasible to provide your personal information that is readily useable and should allow you to transmit the information from one entity to another entity without hindrance.

We do not charge a fee to process or respond to your verifiable request unless it is manifestly unfounded or excessive, for example, because of a repetitive nature. If we determine that the request warrants a fee, we will tell you why we made that decision and provide you with a cost estimate before completing your request.


We will not discriminate against you for exercising any of your CCPA rights.

Length of Time Personal Information is Retained

We will not retain your personal information or sensitive personal information for longer than is reasonably necessary for the disclosed collection or use purpose. Our retention of personal information also is subject to state and federal legal requirements.

We are committed to ensuring this notice is accessible to individuals with disabilities.  If you wish to access this notice in an alternative format, please contact us at

We offer personal loans from $1,000 to $25,000, with minimum and maximum amounts dependent on an applicant’s state of residence and the underwriting of the loan. Loans between $1,500 and $15,000 may be funded online. Loans greater than $15,000 or less than $1,500 are funded through our branch network. Specific interest rates and fees are determined as permitted under applicable state law and depend upon loan amount, term, and the applicant’s ability to meet our credit criteria, including, but not limited to, credit history, income, debt payment obligations, and other factors such as availability of collateral. Not all rates and loan amounts are available in all states. Not all applicants will qualify for the lowest rates or larger loan amounts, which may require a first lien on a motor vehicle not more than ten years old titled in the applicant’s name with valid insurance.

To help the government fight the funding of terrorism and money laundering activities, Federal law requires all financial institutions to obtain, verify, and record information that identifies each person who opens an account. As a result, under our customer identification program, we must ask for your name, street address, mailing address, date of birth, and other information that will allow us to identify you. We may also ask to see your driver’s license or other identifying documents.

*The process uses a “soft” credit inquiry to determine whether a loan offer is available, which does not impact your credit score. If you continue with the application process online and accept a loan offer, or are referred to a branch and continue your application there, we will pull your credit report and credit score again using a “hard” credit inquiry. This “hard” credit inquiry may impact your credit score.

**15 Day Satisfaction Guarantee: If, for any reason, you are dissatisfied with your loan and repay it in full within 15 days we will waive all finance charges with no penalties. Your repayment amount must be in the form of cash or certified funds.

California Residents: Loans made or arranged pursuant to a California Financing Law license.
