Our aim is to help you find financial services products and services that match your personal circumstances and meet your needs. When you click to search for offers on our website, we or our service providers may record a ‘soft credit search’ on your credit file, but this record will be invisible to other lenders. This means the soft search will not affect a lender’s decision whether or not to lend to you and it won’t affect your credit score.
If you apply for a credit product, including one which you may have seen on our website, the lender will ordinarily carry out a hard credit search before approving (or declining) your application. Hard searches will normally stay on your credit file for 12 months. Having multiple hard searches on your credit report may affect a lenders decision of whether to approve your application.
You agree, by using our services, that your information and, where applicable, those of your financial associates (where a financial association exists) may be searched by us or by our lending partners.
We may share your information with third party service providers, such as financial services providers and other advertisers, in accordance with our Privacy Notice and your privacy settings.
Where you request us to do so, we’ll use information we hold about you to match you with personalised offers for credit. The offers will be from third party financial services providers and you don’t have to accept these. Our goal is to present you with offers that you have a likelihood of being accepted for. You are responsible for deciding whether any offers are right for you. Monva trading as Loanbuzz do not provide financial advice.
Making A Credit Application
Third party lenders use their own criteria when underwriting credit applications from you. Any decisions you make in regard to a credit application are solely down to you.
Please make sure that you have read and fully understand all relevant information, such as the third party lender’s terms and conditions.
