Our service provided to you, our customer
Simple Personal Loans offers a service online to its customers. If you wish for us to provide you with our service then you will be entering into an agreement with us. Once the agreement has been entered into you will in turn be accepting our terms and conditions which relate to your agreement and also agreeing to abide by them. In turn we also acknowledge our own obligations to this agreement, by means of providing the service you require, this means we will provide the service to you the customer. As we will be providing a service to our customer we therefore have no obligation to another party, only our customer. Please also be aware that if a client uses our services on behalf of a third party our obligation will still be with you being our customer furthermore the terms and conditions will also relate to you our customer and not with any other third parties.
Our service limitations
Simple Personal Loans is a finance broker, although unlike many finance brokers, we will not charge you a fee for the broker services, we will find lenders and providers of financial services for you. We do usually receive a commission for matching you with a lender or provider of a financial service. Any examples of amounts available to borrow, terms (repayment periods) or rates stated on our website are purely given as a representative example relating to the product. These representative examples are stated to give our customers an understanding of the products available. Representative examples are not given as a figure of what our customers will actually be offered by the lender/finance provider, therefore cannot be given as a guarantee nor can they be used as any kind of warranty. If we do not provide the loan or financial service directly, we are unable to control the representative rate examples contained on our website. Please also be aware that the decision to offer any short term loan or financial service is made by the lender or finance provider and The Money Hive Limited (and associated trading names) has no control over other financial providers decision making. The lender/finance provider will conduct an assessment on each customer before any decision or offer is made; this will include a full assessment of a customer credit history past and present.
Customer checks & referencing
Simple Personal Loans will not carry out any credit checks or referencing on any customer upon registering to our services, however, the finance providers/lenders may use credit scoring facilities and credit referencing agencies to determine how eligible the customer is when making an assessment on the customer. Credit checks and credit reference agencies can also help prevent fraudulent applications so we ask clients to agree to using data provided for the purpose of preventing fraud and ensuring the client’s identity is as claimed. Information provided by the client must always be true and accurate, as misleading information will be regarded as a breach of our terms and is likely to breach any agreement the client has entered into with the lenders and financiers we work alongside. Furthermore, misleading information may also result in the instigation of criminal procedures against the client. If the client has authorised any third parties to access the service on behalf of the client’s instructions issued by authorised third parties will be contractually binding on the client on whose behalf the third party is acting.
