Secure Technology


Billion Automotive uses Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) encryption technology to protect your personal information provided on credit applications and where credit card information is required. SSL encrypts or codes this information as it travels over the Internet, and is then decoded by Billion Automotive and its business partners who facilitate your transactions on this website. We do not read personal communications. We do not give out your telephone number, credit card information or screen names unless authorized to do so;
as required by law; to facilitate your transactions on this website (such as purchases of parts or accessories) for which you have submitted such information; or as otherwise described in this Policy and permitted by applicable law.

Security and Applying for Financing


When applying for motor vehicle financing (whether a loan or a lease) on the Billion Automotive website, your credit application is sent directly to the dealership that you have chosen. The credit application is securely collected and transmitted using SSL technology that encrypts your personal information as it travels over the Internet.


Privacy and Applying for Financing


At Billion Automotive, we take your privacy very seriously. We know that information about you and your finances are sensitive. As we point out in the Consent Statement you must read before submitting a credit application, your credit application is submitted to the Billion Automotive dealership closest to the zip code you enter on the application.

We may ask you for your contact information, such as name, address, phone, and email address; your financial information, such as monthly income, amount of debt, monthly rent or housing payment; and sensitive information such as date of birth and social security number.


By submitting your credit application, you are giving consent to the applicable Billion Automotive dealership to investigate your credit and employment history. A credit report may be obtained in connection with your application for a renewal or extension of credit for which application was made. Upon request, you will be told if a credit report(s) was/were obtained, and given the name and address of the credit reporting agency(ies) providing the report(s). Your credit information may be shared with third party lending institutions that have a
business relationship with the applicable dealership for the purpose of providing motor vehicle financing.


Once you have completed and submitted the credit application, you will be presented with a "Thank You" page, which discloses the address and phone number of the applicable dealership. It is suggested that you print this page by pressing the print button on your browser. In the event that you have any questions or concerns regarding your credit application, please contact the dealership and ask for the Internet Sales Manager.
