Loans Canada’s Role in Providing the Services versus Role of Financing Organizations
It is important to understand our role in providing the Services.
We are a technology platform that is designed to connect people who want information on and to compare various types of financial products and services such as personal loans, auto loans, and mortgages (“financial arrangements”) from third-party financial institutions and organizations that offer financing arrangements. We are not the entity that provides financing arrangements.
When the Services generates information about loans or other financial products or services including approval criteria and interest rates related thereto (collectively, the “Third-Party Services“), we are an information organizer and aggregator. We do not directly generate any of the information about Third-Party Services you see on the Website or obtain from the Services, and instead, this information is provided to us by third parties (generally financial institutions). This information may be inaccurate or incomplete through no fault of ours (for example, because the financial institution has changed its interest rate but has not yet told us about the change). When this happens, your ability to use the Services may be compromised through no fault of ours, and we cannot accept any responsibility for any problems or damages which might occur in relation with such Third-Party Services.
The Website and the Services are not a substitute for actual legal, investment or professional advice from a licensed competent individual in their field of expertise. The information and services offered on this Website is provided with the understanding that Loans Canada is not engaged in rendering legal or other professional services or advice. Your use of the Website is subject to the additional disclaimers and caveats that may appear throughout the Website.
If you decide to conclude or obtain a Third-Party Service through the Website, you will be dealing with third-party financial institutions. Your conclusion of a financing arrangement is not governed by these Terms and will be the subject of a separate contract with the third party who is offering the financing arrangement. To be clear, these Terms do not govern any Third-Party Services, which are the subject of distinct contracts with the concerned third-party financial institution and may also be the subject of an additional contract with us.
Loans Canada does not promise or guarantee that the information and/or Services offered will result in the provision of a financial arrangement to you or improve your credit.
Loans Canada may receive compensation from the offers shown on its website or the providers you may be matched with after you submit an application. Our intention is to provide you with the best tools, content, products and services to help you reach your financial goals. All Loans Canada services and resources are free to use and we do not charge consumers for any of our services. However, it is possible that the providers of some of the offers we promote may charge for some of their services. We aim to provide Canadians with impartial and accurate information so that they can make the best financial decisions.
Purchase of Financial Products and Services Through the App
Our platform only helps you to find Third-Party Services (which are, for clarity, offered by third parties), to select a Third-Party Service that you qualify for, and then we put you in touch with the third-party financial institution which offers the financial arrangements that you prefer so that you can sign a distinct contract with it.
The final decision about whether your qualify for a given Third-Party Service will be made by the third-party financial institution, and we have no control over this decision nor do we have any liability resulting from such.
We are not a party to your contract with the third-party financial institutions. As such, we cannot accept any responsibility for problems arising from or related to these Third-Party Services, third-party contracts nor any other third-party services (including websites or apps) which are used in the process.
Bank Account Verification
It is your responsibility to ensure you review any contractual obligations with your bank to confirm that you are permitted to provide your login information and to determine whether there are any consequences or liabilities as a result of disclosing such login information.
You may create an account or submit a service request in order to use the Services. You must use current and accurate information to create your account. You are limited to a single account, and cannot create multiple accounts, either under your own name or the names of others.
Your account is intended for your use only, and you must not share your login credentials with others, nor allow others to access your account. You agree that you are responsible for the confidentiality of your account credentials, and for any activity resulting from the use of your account. You agree to make reasonable efforts to prevent unauthorized access to, or use of our Services. You may not share your account and password, allow third parties to use your account nor assist anyone who is not a registered user to gain access to the Services. You agree to notify us if you become aware of any unauthorized use of your login credentials and to change your password immediately using the built-in functionalities made available to you. If you forget your password, you are responsible for obtaining a new password by following the “reset password” instructions.
The security of your personal information is very important to us. We use physical, electronic, and administrative measures designed to secure your personal information from accidental loss and from unauthorized access, use, alteration, and disclosure.
Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the Internet is not completely secure. Although we do our best to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee the security of your personal information transmitted to our Website. Any transmission of personal information is at your own risk. We are not responsible for circumvention of any privacy settings or security measures contained on the Website.
Any username, password, or any other piece of information chosen by you, or provided to you as part of our security procedures, must be treated as confidential, and you must not disclose it to any other person or entity. You must exercise caution when accessing your account from a public or shared computer so that others are not able to view or record your password or other personal information. You understand and agree that should you be provided an account, your account is personal to you and you agree not to provide any other person with access to this Website or portions of it using your username, password, or other security information. You agree to notify us immediately of any unauthorized access to or use of your username or password or any other breach of security. You also agree to ensure that you log out from your account at the end of each session. You are responsible for any password misuse or any unauthorized access.
