    1 Services



    - As an introducer and credit broker we will help you search for a loan and provide a matching service as follows (the Services). To help you with your application and search for a loan, we pass your data to a group of lenders and credit brokers on our lending panel (Lending Partners). The lenders on our panel may be willing to enter into a consumer credit agreement with you, subject to their assessment of your creditworthiness and the affordability of the loan among other compliance checks. On submitting your application, we also share your information with other trusted regulated credit brokers who will simultaneously endeavour to match your application with their lending partners. If we find a match, your application is redirected to the lender's website.

    - We have commercial links with our trusted Lending Partners and will generally receive a payment from them (not you) in the form of a commission if we are successful in matching you or if they actually fund a loan. Our panel currently consists of a large panel of lenders and brokers and our matching services only relate to that group, therefore, please note that the Services do not constitute an entire market search for loan products. While our providers have been chosen to provide a variety of products, there are other products on the market that are not available from our panel and, one or more of them may be more appropriate or suitable for you, so you may wish to shop around.

    - Our lenders and partners with whom we share your information may use it for their legitimate business interests to match applications, carry out fraud checks, carry out research such as analysis of market trends and customer demographics and to customise and develop the product/service which they offer to you or other individuals in the future. Most lenders might use this for up to 12 months.


    - We encourage you to consider the Lending Partners' websites, FAQs, pre-contractual information and terms of the loan documentation carefully to determine whether the loan offered is suitable for your financial circumstances and whether you can afford to make the repayments under the proposed loan throughout its term.



    - We do not charge you a fee for the Services or offer advice which assesses the merits of entering into a particular loan. If we match you with a lender it is not a specific recommendation and we have not negotiated the terms of any loan agreements on your behalf.

    - As we are not a lender, we cannot guarantee that completing and submitting your information via our Site will result in you receiving a loan. Individual lenders may, at their discretion, require you to complete their own application process and undertake further checks.
