Terms of Use

The following terms and conditions (the "Terms of Use") govern your use of the services offered through Loans.org (collectively, the "Site").  By using the Site, including choosing to link to a third party site to apply for a loan product, calling our toll free number, initiating a request for us to contact you by telephone, or any other means we might make available, you accept and agree to these Terms of Use.  If you do not agree to these Terms of Use, you are prohibited from using or accessing the Site.  The terms “we,” “us,” or “Loans.org” refer to Loans org, LLC and its subsidiaries and affiliates.

Our Service

Loans.org provides you the opportunity to learn about a variety of loan products from banks, lenders and other service providers. Once you provide us with certain information regarding financial situation and desired loan products, we attempt to match you with appropriate offerings and provide links to further information or to apply for a loan product. We are not a bank, credit union or lending institution, and hence, we do not make loans or accept applications ourselves, we do not make credit decisions, and we do not endorse or recommend any specific companies or lenders. While we publish content on the Site about various loan products and may discuss certain tax and financial considerations, we do not provide tax or financial advice of any kind. We do not guarantee that you will be approved for any of the loan products for which you apply, or that any lender or other service provider to which we link will review your application or contact you. We are not responsible in any way for the conduct of the lenders and other companies whose products may be displayed on the Site.  The loan product provided by any service provider will be subject the terms and conditions under which it issued, and we have no control over such terms and conditions.  While we make every attempt to publish current information regarding a variety of loan products, such information is presented without guarantee or warranty.  After selecting a link to a loan product, you will be taken to the lender or other service provider’s site where you can review the terms and conditions currently applicable to such third party. 

Loans.org has financial relationships with some of the banks, lenders and other service providers presented on the Site, and we may be compensated if you choose to apply for certain loan products and other offers, and/or if you are approved for a loan.  You acknowledge that any fees charged by a bank, lender or other service provider will be your sole responsibility, and agree not to make any claim against Loans.org for such fees.
