Terms & Conditions of Use
PersonalLoanOffers.com (the "Website"). The Website and the Services (as defined below) are provided by Ariel Online, Inc. ("we" or "us" "our"). We are located at 401 E Las Olas Blvd, Suite 130-484, Fort Lauderdale, FL 33301.
ELIGIBLITY By using the Website or Services, you represent and warrant that you are at least 18 years old, a resident of the United States, and are otherwise legally qualified to enter into and form contracts under applicable law. This Agreement is void where prohibited.
LICENSE We grant you a limited, non-exclusive, revocable, non-transferable license to make personal, non-commercial use of the Website and Services. Upon termination of this Agreement, this license will automatically terminate.
SERVICES a. We are not a lender and do not make loans or credit decisions in connection with loans. Instead, we refer consumers seeking loans to lenders who may provide loans (the "Services"). We may refer a consumer directly to a lender, or we may refer a consumer to a third-party partner who then may refer the consumer to a lender. We may share consumer application information with more than one lender and/or third-party partner. Consumers who are not matched with a lender may be directed to a third-party website, which advertises third-party products and services (for additional information, see the section concerning Third-Party Websites, below).
b. We do not guarantee that we will match you with a lender, or that your Application will be approved by a lender. Likewise, we do not guarantee the amount of funds that may be extended to you if a lender approves your application.
c. We do not charge you fees for the Services. Instead, we receive fees from lenders and third-party partners for our referral services.
d. We are not a party to any contract made between you and lenders for loans. All rights and obligations under the terms of the contract for a loan are solely between you and the lender. We do not warrant, endorse, guarantee or assume responsibility for any lender, or any product or service offered by a lender. You should use your own judgment in deciding which available loan product, terms or lender best suits your needs and financial means.
e. In order to use the Services, you must complete and submit an application (the "Application"). A completed Application includes your personal information, such as full name, address, telephone number, email address, social security number, driver's license number, employer information and banking information. By using the Services, you authorize us to transmit your Application to one or more lenders and/or third-party partners. In addition, you authorize our lenders and/or third-party partners to verify your Application information, including by performing a credit check. Lenders and/or third-party partners to whom we have provided your Application information as part of the Services may store your Application information indefinitely, whether or not you are qualified for a loan or if you make a loan. We do not have control over your Application information stored by our lenders and/or third-party partners, and therefore we assume no liability or responsibility for any unauthorized access to, or use of, your Application information stored by our lenders and third-party partners.
YOUR INFORMATION You represent and warrant that all information that you provide on an Application or otherwise in connection with your use of the Website and Services will be current, complete and truthful.

INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY The Website, all content and materials located on the Website, and the selection, arrangement and organization thereof, are the intellectual property of Ariel Online, Inc. or its licensors. Neither your use of the Website and Services, nor your entry into this Agreement, grant you any right, title or interest in or to any such content or materials. The Website is Copyright © 2013 to the present. ALL RIGHTS ARE RESERVED.
DISCLAIMERS; LIMITATION OF LIABILITY a. NO WARRANTIES The Website and Services are provided on an "as is" and "as available" basis. Use of the Website and Services are at your own risk. To the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, the Website and Services are provided without warranties of any kind, whether express or implied, including, but not limited to, implied warranties of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, or non-infringement. No advice or information, whether oral or written, obtained by you from us or through the Website or Service will create any warranty not expressly stated herein. Without limiting the foregoing, we and our licensors (and our respective subsidiaries, affiliates, agents, directors, and employees) do not warrant that the Website and Services are accurate, reliable or correct; that the Website and Services will meet your requirements; that the Website and Services will be available at any particular time or location, uninterrupted or secure; that any defects or errors will be corrected; or that the Website and Services are free of viruses or other harmful components.
b. LIMITATIONS OF LIABILITY i. To the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, in no event will we and our licensors (and our respective subsidiaries, affiliates, agents, directors, and employees) be liable for any direct, indirect, punitive, incidental, special, consequential, or exemplary damages, including without limitation damages for loss of profits, goodwill, use, data, or other intangible losses, that result from the use of, inability to use, or unavailability of the Website or Services.
ii. In no event will we and our licensors (and our respective subsidiaries, affiliates, agents, directors, and employees) be liable to you for any claims, proceedings, liabilities, obligations, damages, losses or costs in an amount exceeding $15,000.
iii. This limitation of liability section applies whether the alleged liability is based on contract, tort, negligence, strict liability, or any other basis, even if we have been advised of the possibility of such damage.
DISPUTES a. This Agreement will be governed and construed in accordance with the laws of Florida, excluding Florida's choice-of-law principles, and all claims relating to or arising out of this Agreement, or the breach thereof, whether sounding in contract, tort or otherwise, will be governed by the laws of Florida, excluding Florida's choice-of-law principles.
b. Any dispute, claim or controversy between you and Ariel Online, Inc. arising out of or relating in any way to the Website, Services or this Agreement will be resolved by binding arbitration, rather than in court, except that either of us may assert qualifying claims in small claims court. This agreement to arbitrate will be governed by and interpreted under the Federal Arbitration Act and federal arbitration law.
c. Arbitration is an alternative dispute resolution process in which a neutral third person (an arbitrator) decides a dispute. There is no judge or jury in arbitration, and arbitration awards are final and binding and subject to review by a court only on a very limited basis. However, an arbitrator can award on an individual basis the same damages and relief as a court (including injunctive and declaratory relief or statutory damages), and must follow this Agreement as a court would. Any court with jurisdiction over the parties may enforce the arbitrator's award. You may, but are not required to, have a lawyer represent you during an arbitration proceeding.
d. To begin an arbitration proceeding, either party must send a letter to the other party requesting arbitration and describing the claim. We will send you notice of arbitration to the address that you provide as part of an Application. You must send us notice of arbitration to General Counsel, Ariel Online, Inc., 401 E. Las Olas Blvd, Suite 130-484, Ft. Lauderdale, FL 33301.
e. The American Arbitration Association (AAA) will conduct the arbitration under its rules, including the AAA's Supplementary Procedures for Consumer-Related Disputes. The AAA's rules are available at www.adr.org or by calling 1-800-778-7879. The AAA's rules will govern the payment of all filing, administration and arbitrator fees. We will reimburse those fees for claims totaling less than $10,000, unless the arbitrator determines the claims are frivolous. Likewise, we will not seek attorneys' fees and costs in arbitration unless the arbitrator determines the claims are frivolous. You may choose to have the arbitration conducted by telephone, based on written submissions, or in person in either the county where you live or Broward County, Florida.
f. Any dispute resolution proceedings will be conducted only on an individual basis and not in a class, consolidated or representative action. If for any reason a claim proceeds in court rather than in arbitration, we each waive any right to a jury trial.
g. To the extent permitted by law, any claim or dispute between you and us arising out of or relating to the Website, Services or this Agreement must be filed within one year. The one-year period begins on the date that the claim or dispute first could be filed. Any claim or dispute not filed within that time is permanently barred. This section applies to each of our respective successors and assigns.
h. Any claims seeking to enforce, protect or determine the validity or ownership of any intellectual property rights are not subject to mandatory arbitration. Instead, these claims, including claims for injunctive or equitable relief, will be exclusively decided by courts of competent jurisdiction in Broward County, Florida.
