Please carefully read these terms and conditions (the “Terms”) as they apply to the website owned, operated and controlled by Liberis US Inc. (“Liberis”), at www.liberisfinance.com (the “Website”). By using the Website, you agree to these Terms. If you do not agree to these Terms, do not use the Website. In these Terms, “we”, “us” and “our” mean Liberis; “you” and “your” means the Website user; and the “business” means the individual, corporation, association, partnership, limited liability company, estate, trust, or any other entity that applies for or obtains products and services from Liberis.
In addition to this Website, Liberis provides Qualified Customers (as defined below) the ability to obtain products and services, pursuant to the Liberis Sale and Purchase Agreements and related Terms and Conditions and such other agreements to be entered into by and between each Qualified Customer and Liberis (collectively, the “Customer Agreement”). The Terms contained herein do not govern any products or services you receive as a Qualified Customer pursuant to a Customer Agreement, but govern your use of the Website as a visitor and/or an Applicant (as defined below). If there is any conflict between these Terms and any Customer Agreement, if applicable, the Customer Agreement shall govern.
The Website is intended solely for users who are eighteen (18) years of age or older. By using the Website, you represent and warrant that you are 18 years of age or older.
4. Liberis Account Registration
To use certain parts of the Website, you will be required to create a Liberis account which includes a sign-in name (“Sign-In Name”), a password (“Password”), and potentially certain additional information that will assist in authenticating your identity when you log-in in the future (“Unique Identifiers”). You are solely responsible for the confidentiality and use of your Sign-In Name, Password, and Unique Identifiers, as well as for any use, misuse, or communications entered through the Website using one or more of them. We reserve the right to delete or change your Password, Sign-In Name, or Unique Identifier at any time for any reason. Liberis will not be liable for any loss or damage caused by any unauthorized use of your account.
5. Accuracy of Information
When creating a Liberis account on the Website, you agree to provide current, complete and accurate information about the business and about its owners, executive officers, senior managers, general partners, and any other individual who performs similar functions (the “Principals”). If any information about the business or any Principal that you provide is untrue, inaccurate, not current, or incomplete, we may deny your application and terminate your Liberis account.
“Applicants” are those entities [or individuals] who complete an application (“Application”) in accordance with the instructions on the Website or as otherwise provided by Liberis. By submitting an Application, Applicants expressly authorize Liberis and its third-party service providers to perform an initial background check (and subsequent periodic follow-up background checks) on the Applicants and any Principals to help us determine the eligibility of the business for our products and services. In connection with such background checks, we may obtain information about the Applicants and the business from sources or references named in your Application, records, statements, documents, or other information evidencing business transactions with the customers of the business, consumer credit and business credit reporting agencies and other resources and third parties, as permitted by applicable law. By submitting an Application, you hereby agree to cooperate with Liberis with respect to background checks, and you shall promptly, upon request from Liberis, provide (or sign) any information, documentation and/or consent that we may require to perform a background check, including, without limitation, providing the written consent of any Principal to obtain that individual’s personal credit report or any other information from one or more consumer reporting agencies. You acknowledge that your failure to provide the foregoing consent, information and cooperation as requested by Liberis may preclude you from qualifying for products and services offered by Liberis. By submitting an Application, you hereby expressly authorize Liberis and its third-party service providers, to provide your information to government entities, law enforcement entities and consumer and business credit reporting agencies.
IN CONNECTION WITH YOUR INTEREST IN LIBERIS’ PRODUCTS AND SERVICES, LIBERIS REQUESTS YOUR AUTHORIZATION TO ACCESS YOUR PERSONAL AND BUSINESS CREDIT REPORTS. BY SUBMITTING AN APPLICATION, YOU ARE PROVIDING “WRITTEN INSTRUCTIONS” TO LIBERIS UNDER THE FAIR CREDIT REPORTING ACT, WHICH AUTHORIZES LIBERIS TO OBTAIN INFORMATION FROM YOUR PERSONAL CREDIT PROFILE OR OTHER INFORMATION FROM ONE OR MORE CONSUMER REPORTING AGENCIES. THE INFORMATION OBTAINED FROM YOUR CREDIT REPORT, AS WELL AS OTHER INFORMATION THAT WE OBTAIN ABOUT YOU IN ACCORDANCE WITH THIS AGREEMENT, WILL BE USED FOR A LEGITIMATE BUSINESS NEED, IN CONNECTION WITH A TRANSACTION INITIATED IN WRITING BY YOU (I.E., YOUR APPLICATION).
7. Qualified Customers
Liberis reserves the right to reject any Application, for any reason or no reason, at our discretion. If Liberis determines that your Application qualifies you for our products and services, you will be notified by us, and, upon your execution of applicable Customer Agreements, you shall be deemed a “Qualified Customer.” Your qualification for Liberis’ products and services, and execution of certain Customer Agreements, does not guarantee that Liberis will execute other Customer Agreements with you, which shall be done (or not done) at Liberis’ sole and exclusive discretion.
Once you become a Qualified Customer, your rights, duties and obligations with respect to the products and services you receive from Liberis shall be governed by those Customer Agreements mutually agreed and executed between you and Liberis. Notwithstanding the foregoing, your use of the Website shall continue to be governed by this Agreement.
By accepting these Terms, you expressly consent to receive communications from us electronically to the extent permissible by law and agree that any electronic communications from you to Liberis shall have the same effect as if they were made in physical paper form. Such electronic communications may include emails, messages posted to your Liberis customer account portal or other electronic communications. Your consent to receive electronic communications from us does not mean that we must provide all communications electronically. You further expressly consent to be contacted by Liberis and our employees, representatives and agents, or anyone contacting you on our behalf for any and all purposes arising out of or relating to your Liberis account, at any telephone number, or any physical, email or electronic address you provide or at which you may be reached. It is your responsibility to provide us with current and accurate contact information. You represent that you are permitted to receive calls at each of the telephone numbers you have provided to us. You agree to promptly alert us whenever you stop using a particular telephone number.
