As we will be providing a service to you, we will have no obligation to any other party.

Furthermore, the terms and conditions will also relate to you, our customer, and not with any other third parties.
MoneyGuru.com is owned and operated by Quint Group Limited.
We are not a lender or provider and therefore will not provide finance directly to you. We provide an online credit card, loan, mortgage, life insurance and credit report introduction and comparison service. The comparison tables allow you to view and compare a large number of products and services online, and apply for them on the lender's or provider's own websites.
We also provide a loan and credit card matching service called moneymatcher, where we introduce you to lenders or providers of financial services. By submitting an application through our moneymatcher form you will be giving your consent for Money Guru to match your application with one of the lenders or providers on our panel. Once you have completed the moneymatcher application you will be presented with the products you are most eligible for based on the lender or provider’s criteria and the information you have entered into the MoneyMatcher form... From that point on you can review the options displayed and click on ‘Apply now’ if there is an option you wish to apply for. When you click on ‘Apply now’ you will be redirected to the lender or provider’s website to complete your application.
There is no obligation for you to take up the loan or service with them. You should read their conditions carefully and make a responsible decision on whether you believe their service is right for you. If you have any questions or are unsure, you should contact the lender or provider before taking out any service or loan with them.
Any examples of amounts available to borrow, terms (repayment periods) or rates stated on the comparison pages are given purely as a representative example relating to the product. These representative examples are stated to give you an understanding of the products available. Representative examples are not given as a figure of what you will actually be offered by the lender/finance provider and therefore cannot be given as a guarantee. Nor can they be used as any kind of warranty. As we do not provide the loan or financial service directly to you we are unable to control the representative rate examples contained on the website. Please also be aware that the decision to offer any loan or financial service is made by the lender or finance provider and we have no control over the decision making.
The lender/finance provider will conduct an assessment on you before any decision or offer is made; this may include a full assessment of your credit history, both past and present.
Customer checks and referencing
Credit checks and credit reference agencies can also help prevent fraudulent applications, so we ask you to agree to us using data provided for the purposes of preventing fraud and ensuring your identity is protected.
Upon application, Money guru, the lender or finance provider may use both fraud prevention and credit referencing agencies to help make relevant decisions.
Money Guru Limited may use credit scoring facilities and credit referencing agencies to determine how eligible you are for the products offered. Money Guru Limited and credit referencing agencies will place a search of the application on your credit file, whether or not you decide to apply for the product. This will be marked as a “quotation” search and will not affect your ability to gain credit.
If you choose to proceed to apply for a product from the list of offers, the supplier you choose will carry out its own identification and credit checks as part of its ordinary application process. Your credit file will not be provided to any third party credit provider at any point during this process (unless you subsequently agree).
Information provided by you must always be true and accurate, as misleading information will be regarded as a breach of our terms and is likely to breach any agreement you have entered into with a lender or finance provider. Misleading information may also result in the instigation of criminal procedures against you.
If you have authorised any third parties to act on your behalf any information given by the third party will be contractually binding on you. Should you choose to make a joint application for a loan or finance via the website, each party will be dealt with as a client acting with the consent of the other, and if correspondence is entered into with one party of the joint application, it shall be assumed that the communication is with both parties.
Information about you (including your visits to the website)
When you use our website and form you consent to us processing your personal information and therefore warrant that all information/data provided by you is accurate and correct.
Upon using Moneymatcher, a soft credit search is performed. This leaves a footprint on your credit file but will not affect your credit score. The details returned by the soft credit search help us match you to the most relevant products.
