Terms and Conditions
We may, at our sole discretion, at any time and without notice, discontinue providing our services (or any part) or website.
We connect businesses and organisations with trusted third party lenders, credit repair service providers and invoice factoring providers (“Services”).
In relation to the business loans, we provide an obligation free consultation with us to understand your business loan requirements, determine a proposed lender and provide your details to our trusted third party lender (“Lender”). We may request information from you including but not limited to business name and address, loan amount, intended use of the loan and financial and other information and documents regarding your business (“Business Details”). The relevant Lender will contact you in respect of your business loan and Business Details.
Pineapple Funding does not guarantee that you will receive a loan from a Lender. If the Lender is unable to provide you with the loan you require, you may contact us to request an alternate Lender.
All arrangements between you and a Lender in respect of a loan or other services provided by the Lender are subject to the Lender’s terms and conditions. You acknowledge and agree that a Lender has its own procedures and criteria, that the Lender will enter into its own agreement with you, and that Pineapple Funding has no role in the Lender’s decision whether to provide funding to you.
All arrangements between you and a credit repair service provider and invoice factoring provider are subject to their respective terms and conditions. You acknowledge and agree that the relevant provider will enter into its own agreement with you, and that Pineapple Funding has no role in the provider’s performance of the services or decision to purchase your invoices.
The Services provided by Pineapple Funding do not constitute an offer, solicitation, recommendation or advice in respect of the subscription, purchase or sale of financial products. We do not (and are not permitted to) provide advice on any services you receive from Lenders, credit repair services providers and invoice factoring providers, including but not limited to the loan, and in relation to the financial and legal risks and your rights. Nothing on the website is intended to be a substitute for professional financial advice. Before you obtain any loan or service from a third party we recommend you obtain your own legal and financial advice.
Please be aware that information regarding business loans may be obtained from a professional business consultant, financial institution or other funding provider, and you (either by yourself or through such a third party) can apply for business loans directly with loan providers.
By providing information to us, including your Business Details, you authorise us to use your information for the purposes of or related to the Services, including to provide to the Lender or provider.
We do not charge you for our Services.
We may receive a referral fee or commission from Lenders, credit repair service providers and invoice factoring providers.
Lenders, credit repair service providers and invoice factoring providers will charge you a fee for their services and details of the fees will be provided to you directly from the Lender or provider. Please review the Lender or provider’s fees before proceeding with their services.
