Security Notice


How does GoodTree Capital protect your personal information?


As a financial services company, GoodTree Capital understands that the information collected and shared with us by our borrowers and investors contains highly sensitive data with the potential to cause significant harm if it falls in the wrong hands. We take our role in safeguarding your information seriously.


We maintain a comprehensive security program based on industry standards and best practices. We take a defensive, in-depth approach to implementing rigorous technical safeguards to ensure your information is safe from unauthorized access or misuse. The safeguards include preventive, detective, and corrective controls.


Technical safeguards like perimeter security, industry standard encryption, two-factor authentication, and continuous monitoring ensure that your information is protected with layered and complementary controls. We review and adjust security safeguards periodically based on ongoing risk assessment. However, despite our substantial investment in protecting your personal information, ultimately no institution can guarantee its absolute security.

Methods of protecting your personal information

Encryption & website certificates

Industry standard encryption protects the information you share with us from the moment it leaves your computer until it reaches our systems. Look for the secure locked padlock on your browser, which means you are using a secure web connection. Consult your web browser documentation for more information.

Session time-outs

We employ session time-outs to protect your account. You will be logged out of the website automatically after a period of inactivity. This reduces the risk of others being able to access your account if you leave your computer unattended.


You should never share your password with anyone. Your password is not known to any GoodTree Capital employee or third party, and we will never ask for your password by phone or email. If you ever receive a communication claiming to be from GoodTree Capital that asks for your password, you should immediately report it by emailing

Identity theft protection

We have developed and implemented an identity theft prevention and response program that is designed to detect, prevent, and mitigate identity theft when borrowing or investing through the GoodTree Capital platform. We utilize authentication technology to verify the identities of our investors and borrowers, and have established processes, procedures, and training for GoodTree Capital employees to identify and respond appropriately to identity theft red flags. Under our agreements with investors, we are obligated to repurchase loans in cases of confirmed borrower identity theft. Additionally, we will work with law enforcement authorities as appropriate to track down and prosecute anyone who has committed identity theft on the GoodTree Capital platform.

Disclosure of Information

Service providers

We work with a number of service providers who support our operations, including but not limited to, credit bureaus, collection agencies, electronic payment service providers, customer support call centers, and other nonaffiliated third parties. We share information with these third parties only to the extent necessary for us to process the transactions you initiate or to perform other specific services, like collections or identity verification. Our service providers are legally required to keep your information private and secure and adhere to applicable state and federal laws and regulations.

Third-party websites and services

Additionally, we may provide you with links to third-party websites and services. Those websites and services will have different security and privacy practices, so you should review them when visiting a third-party website or using a third-party service. GoodTree Capital is ultimately not responsible for the information practices employed by sites or services linked to or from our website. In most cases, we provide those links as a way to obtain information on products and topics that may be useful to you.
