Described below are the terms and conditions for providing Loan Disclosures to you electronically. Please read the information below carefully and thoroughly.

You acknowledge and agree that CompareFirst or our affiliated lenders may provide you with the Loan Disclosures in electronic format, including via mobile devices, and that we are not required to send a paper document to you, unless and until you withdraw your consent as described below. All Loan Disclosures that we provide to you in electronic format will be provided either (i) via e-mail, (ii) by access to our online platform or (iii) by requesting you to download a PDF.

1. Getting paper copies.

You may request a paper copy of any Loan Disclosure that a third-party lender has provided or made available to you electronically without charge, provided that such request is made within a reasonable time after the Loan Disclosures were first provided to you. To request paper copies, you may contact the third-party lenders directly, their contact information could be found on their site.

2. Withdrawing your consent.

Contact any third-party lender directly to withdraw your consent to receive Loan Disclosures in electronic form. Since your consent is needed in order to be matched with third party lenders, you will be able to withdraw your consent during the matching process.

Please be aware that if you elect to receive Loan Disclosures only in paper format your application could not be processed by CompareFirst and our third-party lenders, and if you elect to receive Loan Disclosures only in paper format after your loan is approved, it may slow the speed at which we or our third-party lenders can deliver services to you.

You are required to provide us with an accurate and complete e-mail address and update any changes to the information promptly. At our discretion, we may treat your failure to provide us with a valid e-mail address or the malfunction of a previously valid e-mail address as a withdrawal of your consent to receive electronic Loan Disclosure. You should keep third party lenders informed of any changes in your contact details, and you can do so by logging into third party lender’s website or sending the lender a written update by mail or email.
