Transparency Promiseclose


Transparency

We are committed to treating customers fairly and as a result we have outlined our Transparency Promise below for all our customers to view.

Our Promise

We believe it is important for anyone who is using our website to have a clear and fair understanding of how the website works, what it’s limitations are and how it’s financed.

How products are selected

All of the products listed on our website come from our own research. We visit many different websites, search through telephone directories and seek out advertising looking for financial products to list on Loan Option.

Once we find a new product, we then set out to find as much about it as we possibly can. To do this, we read reviews on independent review websites, look at every aspect of the product's own website and also search for any news and interesting details about that product that we think our users might find informative.

We then maintain this information and keep it up to date with regular reviews of the products. We do everything we can to make sure only reputable, suitable products are presented to our customers on the website.

We also do everything we can to locate every available product, but we know we are not perfect so cannot promise a whole-of-market solution for our customers.

We are committed to treating customers fairly and as a result we have outlined our Transparency Promise below for all of our customers to view.

How products are presented

Loan Option enables you sort your results by whats most important to you, whether thats the cheapest product (based on annual percentage rate) or the quickest payout. This means you will see the results most suited to your needs as chosen by you.

How the site is financed

When we have added a new product to the website we will sometimes build a relationship with that product provider. Then, if you apply for the product or take out the product we will receive a commission. That’s where we get our revenue.

transparency

We promise to provide you with the best and cheapest offers we can find and will not promote a product more highly on our website to generate ourselves revenue.

We promise to write simple and clear terms and conditions so you can understand our service.

We promise to treat your personal data in a secure and appropriate way at all times.

We promise to respond as quickly as possible to any enquiries you have.
