Churchill Email Policy
It’s important to Churchill Mortgage to provide various means of communicating with our customers this includes but isn’t limited to Email, text message, telephone, voicemail, online chat, instant message, blog comments, social media, fax machine, and regular mail. Because of this, we also think it’s equally important to provide you with terms and conditions for these methods of communication.
Email you receive from Churchill Mortgage is conditioned upon your agreement to the following terms:
Email is a way that we communicate to you but at times it can be brief and informal. Due to this, Emails may not accurately represent the entire matter in relation to getting a mortgage, or the mortgage process. In many instances, communications about a particular situation or loan example are exchanged through various channels like Email, telephone calls, voicemails, texts, faxes, letters, postcards, instant messages, social media responses and engagement, and in person. Sometimes multiple forms of communication may be exchanged through multiple channels at the same time. Accordingly, an Email, by itself, may not accurately reflect the complete communication or intent of Churchill Mortgage as it can be taken out of context. All official home loan matters should be subsequently confirmed in signed writings and documents. Also, the receipt of an Email from Churchill Mortgage may not put us on notice of any matters/issues contained within that particular, Email.
Unless there is explicit and specific language and disclosures to the contrary, Emails from Churchill Mortgage do not contain or constitute an electronic signature, even if the sender's name appears in the Email. Email communications are not intended to be construed against the Company as an interest rate lock, an unconditional loan commitment, an unconditional loan approval, unconditional qualification, or any unconditional offer or agreement to lend. Such documents and agreements are generally sent to clients in formal signed writings from the Company.
Emails (and all attachments) sent by Churchill Mortgage team members and representatives are confidential and should be reviewed to only the individual to whom they are addressed and intended. Any unauthorized use, disclosure, reproduction, or distribution is prohibited.

Notify the sender immediately by telephone or Email and delete the original. Treat these Emails marked as "confidential" and stay in compliance with privacy laws (including but not limited to the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act). Ensure confidential information is not disclosed or used by others. By accepting the confidential information provided by Churchill Mortgage, you agree to hold Churchill Mortgage harmless against any and all claims, losses, liabilities, or expenses that Churchill could incur as a result of the unauthorized use or disclosure of confidential information due to your acts or omissions.
Emails exchanged with or involving our legal and compliance teams may contain privileged information subject to the attorney/client privilege and/or the attorney/work product privilege. Such privileged information will not be waived if you receive an Email in error or if it was improperly forwarded to you. If you are not the intended recipient of privileged information, please notify the sender immediately by telephone or Email, and delete or destroy the original and any copies. Unauthorized use, disclosure, reproduction, or distribution of confidential or privileged information is prohibited.
