UpCrunch, Inc. (“UpCrunch”) helps borrowers assess third-party funding options, and apply for and receive funding (the “Services”). The www.upcrunch.com
website (“Website”) is offered as part of the Services. By using this Website or the Services, you agree to comply with and be bound by the following terms and conditions of use (“Agreement”). Please review this Agreement carefully as it is a binding agreement if you use the Website or request other Services from UpCrunch.
2. No Direct or Guaranteed Lending.
UpCrunch is not a lender. UpCrunch refers business borrowers to lenders and other funding sources, and helps borrowers determine what kind of funding would best help their specific business needs. Lenders, and not UpCrunch, make an ultimate decision about whether or not to lend, how much capital to make available capital, and terms of borrowing based on a variety of factors. UpCrunch can help assess likelihood a particular funding source would be a good fit for a business, but cannot commit any lender to lend. Lenders alone commit to lend. Receiving funding recommendations or referrals from UpCrunch is not a commitment to lend, or a guarantee any lender will make any funding available. UpCrunch shall have no liability if a borrower is unable to secure desired funding.
3. Using the Services.
a. No Upfront Cost.
UpCrunch does not charge a fee to consult with borrowers and help them determine available funding options. If a borrower determines to obtain funding recommended or referred by UpCrunch, UpCrunch may earn a fee from the lender in connection with the funding. UpCrunch does not directly charge borrowers a fee to use the Services.
b. No Commitment.
Consulting with UpCrunch does not commit or require a borrower to borrow, but some lenders may require a signed commitment from a borrower to proceed further with the lending process. Any such commitment and the terms of the loan/funding are between the borrower and the lender (and not UpCrunch). UpCrunch may decline to provide Services to anyone at any time for any reason.
c. Website Examples.
Possible funding sources (as far as type, amount, and terms) on the Website are samples of the type of funding available to many UpCrunch customers, but individual terms and options for individual borrowers may vary based on borrower creditworthiness and other factors lenders consider. For example, a newly established business may have fewer funding options than a business with a more established track record. There is not a one-size fits all funding source or type of funding. UpCrunch’s actual recommendations for a borrower are dependent on receiving truthful, accurate, and complete information from the borrower.
d. How Quickly Funding Occurs.
No funding is possible prior to completing the application and documentation (e.g., bank account statements, tax returns and other financials). Timeframes on the website that suggest how quickly funding can occur presuppose that the funding application and background documentation is complete and are measured from completion of these materials.
e. No Legal, Financial or Tax Advice.
Any legal questions about funding documents should be directed to your legal counsel. Questions about financial or tax impact of a loan/funding source should be directed to your accountant or other financial advisers. UpCrunch is not in the business of giving legal, financial or tax advice.
