1. GETTING STARTED
Welcome to Boundless! We’re a platform that facilitates connections between lenders and borrowers.
If you have questions regarding your access to or use of the Platform or about these Terms, please contact us by e-mail at email@example.com.
2. CREATING A BUSINESS USER ACCOUNT
2.1 Creating Your Business User Account
To access and use certain services available through our Platform, you will first be required to create a business user account. We reserve the right to restrict access to our services based upon any lawful grounds, including your location or place of residence. Our services that require you to have a business user account include analytics tools and lending community platform (our “Account Services”).
To create a business user account, you may be required to provide:
• Business details, including your business name, constating documents, address, trade name, type of business, industry, URL, date of incorporation/formation, revenue and credit score;
• Details about the ownership of your business, including your owner’s (or owners’) name (s), title(s), date(s) of birth, ownership %, address(es), driver’s license or other government-issued identification, SIN/SSN(s), phone number(s), email(s) and credit score(s);
• Financial information, including the amount of funds you are requesting, intended use of funds, timing of funding requirements, and any additional information reasonably requested to complete your account or application(s).
• Account formation information, including a login name, and a password, and other information related to your business user account that we may require from time to time (the information you provide when creating a business user account is collectively called your “Account Details”). When creating a business user account, you agree to provide correct, current, and complete Account Details, and to promptly update your Account Details if any information changes – for example, if you change your email address.
While we take steps to protect your Account Details, you acknowledge and agree that you are also responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your Account Details. If you believe any of your Account Details (such as your password) have been compromised or that someone else is accessing your business user account, you agree to promptly inform us and to take reasonable steps to secure your business user account – for example, by changing your password.
You acknowledge and agree that your business user account is personal to you as an individual acting on behalf of your organization, and that you cannot share your business user account with, or transfer your business user account to, another individual without our prior written consent.
2.2 Verifying Your Identity
To use some of the Account Services available through our Platform, we may first require that you help us verify your identity. Accordingly, you agree to authorize us to make any inquiries we consider reasonably necessary to validate your identity upon our request and to cooperate in getting answers to those inquires, including taking steps to verify the email address you use to create your user account. If you do not respond to our request to make inquiries or if we cannot verify your identity to our satisfaction, you acknowledge that we may refuse to allow you to use such Account Services.
2.3 Linking to Your Account
To use the Platform, you may need to provide Boundless with access to your account information, balance information, and/or certain other information maintained by third parties with which you have relationships, maintain accounts, or engage in financial transactions (“Third-Party Account Information”). By using the Platform, you authorize Boundless to access Third-Party Account Information on your behalf as your agent, and you hereby expressly authorize applicable third parties to disclose your information to us. By agreeing to these Terms, you are also agreeing that you are responsible for keeping any passwords and usernames you provide to us secure, and for keeping those passwords and usernames up to date in the Platform.
Boundless does not review information, including information you provide, maintained by third parties for accuracy, legality, or non-infringement, and Boundless is not responsible for your information or products and services offered by or on third-party sites.
You acknowledge that any information based on your linked account(s) that is displayed through our Platform will be the information we most recently accessed by us, and that this information may not be accurate, up-to-date, or reflect pending transactions or other recent activity.
3. USING OUR SERVICE
3.1 Overview of Our Lending Connection Platform
We offer users with a business user account connections to lenders through a centralized platform, simplifying your application process. We do not provide any financial advice, nor do we recommend any particular lender or terms. On the basis of your application (or upon further requests for information), a lender may advance you funds on terms offered by the lender (a “Loan”). Your Loan agreement with any particular lender is an agreement directly between you and the lender, and we are not a party to any such agreement.
3.2 Using our Service
Our Account Services may only be used by you acting on behalf of a commercial organization, in connection with your organization’s desire to enter into a commercial credit application and transaction. Our Account Services may not be used for personal, family, consumer or household purposes.
You hereby represent and warrant, at all times that you hold an account with the Platform, that your organization:
i. is lawfully incorporated and in good standing under the laws of Canada or the United States;
iii. is not insolvent and has not filed for protection under bankruptcy laws, made an assignment for the benefit of creditors, appointed or suffered appointment of a receiver or trustee over its property, filed a petition under any bankruptcy or insolvency act, nor had any such petition filed against it.
You further represent and warrant that you, the organization’s officers and directors, are not Specially Designated Nationals (under the laws of the United States of America), sanctioned individuals or entities, a credit clinic, a credit repair organization, listed on an Experian Customer Alert List, included on any government issued prohibition list, and have not been involved in credit fraud or other unethical business practices.
To the extent that we charge any fees, including application fees (which you will be notified of in writing prior to incurring any such fees), you hereby agree that Boundless may: (i) charge and receive a commission, referral fee, or other similar compensation (“Fees”) from you and/or from third parties, including lenders, integrators and other third-party service providers, in connection with Boundless’ provision of Account Services (including facilitation of your Loan application(s)) without further disclosure to you. Unless otherwise stated, all Fees are exclusive of any value added, goods and services, sales, use, property, excise and like taxes, import duties, and/or applicable levies (“Taxes”). Boundless may charge any form of payment that you have provided and/or deduct Fees (and applicable Taxes) from amounts loaned or transferred to you by third parties prior to your receipt of such funds. You agree to keep any form of payment provided to Boundless updated. Fees shall be due and payable immediately without invoice when incurred.
3.4 Requesting a Loan
You may create an application and send your application through lenders through our Platform. To create and send an application, you may be required to:
ii. agree to additional terms with us, or with third parties including potential lenders (including but not limited to additional information requests).
By applying for a loan, you represent to us that your application for such loan is truthful and accurate. You hereby hold us harmless for any liability in connection with such loan, and agree to indemnify us for any losses incurred as a result of any claim made by any third party, including a lender, in connection with a loan. Please note that loan applications are only accepted and sent to lenders at Boundless’ sole and unfettered discretion.
3.5 Cancelling Your Account Services
You may cancel your business user account at any time through the Platform or by notifying us by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Cancellation may not be immediate, but shall be completed in a reasonably timely manner. Boundless reserves the right to suspend, restrict, or terminate your access to your business user account at any time, and for any reason.
