The Service

LenderSpotlight.ca provides a tracking service for mortgage products, guidelines and rates (collectively, “Mortgage Products”), to offer Users the ability to search for Mortgage Products that Users believe to be best suited to their needs. You may submit your contact information to us (see below), and we will forward you information regarding and allow you to search our database of third party Mortgage Products from various providers or brokers (“Vendor”), (collectively, the “Services”).

Service Disclaimer. By using the Services, you understand and acknowledge that LenderSpotlight.ca provides a platform for Users to get information for Mortgage Products from Vendors about their Mortgage Products. LenderSpotlight.ca is not a provider, vendor or broker of Mortgage Products, nor is it a financial advisor. The information provided on the Website is provided for information purposes only and is not and should not be construed as financial advice or any other kind of advice. LenderSpotlight.ca makes no representations or warranties about the accuracy of any information contained on the Website, and shall not be responsible for any inaccuracies, misrepresentations, errors or omissions in the information provided therein, and some information may not always be up to date.

Any information about Mortgage Products appearing on the Website is provided directly by Vendors (“Vendor Content”), not by LenderSpotlight.ca. As between LenderSpotlight.ca and Vendor, Vendors are exclusively responsible for Vendor Content, and LenderSpotlight.ca shall not be responsible for any Vendor Content or for any inaccuracies in any Vendor Content or any losses, claims, expenses, damages, or liabilities that arise as a result of any Vendor Content.

Users are strongly encouraged to use common sense and discretion and to do their own research before relying on any of the information provided by the Website, and to consult an independent competent professional (such as, without limitation, an accountant, real estate agent, mortgage broker, insurance broker, or lawyer) before transacting with any Vendor for any Mortgage Product. We are not responsible for any advice provided by any professional you consult, nor are we responsible for the acts or omissions of any Vendor or User or for any actual, failed, proposed or discussed transaction following your use of the Services or any other decisions you make as a result of using the Website and/or Services. Users hereby understand and agree to use the information contained on this Website at their own risk.

Registration or Subscription

Users may be provided the option to register or may be required to register for a LenderSpotlight.ca account.

Registration. If electing to register for an account, you will be required to provide your personal information such as your name, e-mail, and address. You will also be required to select a username and password. You are responsible for all activity that occurs on your account, so please select a strong password and do not share it with any other individual or entity. LenderSpotlight.ca is not liable for any of the activity occurring on your account, including any unauthorized access to your account. Please notify us immediately if you believe your account has been compromised.

Subscription. If required by us, Client will order the Services under this Terms of Service by placing written, signed orders on a Subscription Form, which may set out the specific Services, the term of the Agreement, any special terms and conditions, and fees or payment terms; and only the execution of an Subscription Form related to the Services by Client and by us constitutes a binding contract between those parties. “Subscription Form” means an online or offline order document representing the subscription to the Services that, upon execution, incorporates, and makes, these Terms of Service form part of the agreement between Client and us (the “Agreement”).

Request Forms

For Mortgage Products information from Vendors, you will need to fill out a request form (“Request Form”) providing basic information that will be provided by us to Vendors. The Request Form will ask you to provide certain personal information, which may include your name, phone number, location, contact method, and certain details specific to the Mortgage Product you are interested in (e.g. you may be asked to provide the approximate amount of mortgage you require). We will forward your Request Form information to Vendors, who will then contact you via your preferred contact method. YOU HEREBY CONSENT TO OUR COLLECTING, PROCESSING, DISCLOSING AND DESTROYING THE PERSONAL INFORMATION YOU PROVIDE IN YOUR REQUEST FORM OR OTHERWISE THROUGH THE WEBSITE IN ACCORDANCE WITH OUR PRIVACY POLICY.
