Is it safe to do a credit application on a dealership's website?

We live in a digital age.  Constantly submitting data across the Internet, often times without a care in the world.  But then comes the time to submit a credit application... be it on a dealership's website, for a credit card, or anything else.  The wheels come to a screeching halt.  Is it truly safe to be submitting this credit application?

When it comes to dealership websites, such as Summit Chrysler Dodge Jeep RAM, the answer is almost always YES.  Dealerships are actually financial institutions.  As such, we follow many of the same rules and regulations as banks do in terms of protecting guest information.  Our websites are a reflection of that, and thus do the same.

With Summit, when you submit a credit application it is sent via HTTPS (a secured protocol for Internet traffic).  It's encrypted so that nobody can take a peak.  At the dealership it's stored, temporarily, in a secured portal that only sales management has access to.  It's very much a need-to-know setup.  Summit Chrysler protects your privacy with the utmost care.

So if you're considering a new vehicle, and it comes down to submitting a credit application, you can rest assured you're in good care with Summit Chrysler Dodge Jeep RAM.
