Products and Services
You understand and agree that the services provided by iCapital include assessing your eligibility for business funding, pre-qualifying and matching you with the financial products offered by our business partners and coordinating and maintaining that relationship when possible and appropriate.

The application will request your personal and business information, including but not limited to your name and address, phone number and email, the amount requested, the intended business purpose, and financial information regarding the business revenue.
By submitting your application, you authorize iCapital and our selected business partners to obtain information from third-party sources, including credit bureaus.

iCapital may suspend or discontinue our services or limit the availability of funding products at any time and for any reason, without liability and without notice.
Applying for Business Funding
Consent to Conduct Business Electronically
Submitting a business funding application electronically through the iCapital Site has the same force and effect as if the application was signed by hand with an ink signature. Any electronic or paper communications will be considered “in writing.”
In utilizing any of the functions of the Site, Applicant’s Representative warrants and represents that he or she is over the age of 18, a legal US resident, is acting pursuant to express authorization to act on behalf of the Applicant, and able to enter binding agreements on behalf of the Applicant.
The Applicant certifies that any funds obtained through our services will be used solely for legitimate business purposes and not for any other reasons outside of that scope.
In order to service your request for business funding, you authorize iCapital, our affiliates and business partners, to;
(a) send electronic disclosures to the email address(es) provided by you, including all relevant documents, notices, and contracts.
(b) communicate with you electronically, at any telephone number, fax number, email address that you submit to us, based on your interest in and eligibility for our financial products now or in the future.
(c) contact third-parties as necessary to verify your information, including your identity and the legitimacy of your business. We may require identifying documentation from you as a condition of continuing with our services at any time.
(d) analyze the financial health of your business by obtaining proof of your business revenue. Proof of business revenue includes the choice of providing us copies of your business bank statements or linking your transactional data using a secure third-party.

By clicking “continue” on our Application, you are providing written consent for iCapital and our affiliate companies and business partners to obtain and review your consumer and business credit reports. The “soft pull” initiated by iCapital will not affect your credit score, but credit inquiries by our business partners may impact your credit score.
The information from your credit report, among other considerations, will be used in determining your eligibility for certain financial products in the assessment of the financial readiness of your business to receive funding.
You understand that our partners, at their sole discretion, may approve or decline your application and may or may not provide us with the details of their decision. The credit inquiries conducted by our business partners may or may not have an impact on your personal credit score.
You understand and agree the iCapital cannot guarantee that your application will result in approval, or submission for approval, for any business funding products offered through our services.
Consent to Contact and Receive Electronic Communications
We, or any agent or representative acting on our behalf, may contact you by any means and for any reason, including but not limited to; fulfilling your request for business funding, communicating information on the status of your business funding, marketing additional products or services, and delivering disclosures, notices, and agreements.
You understand that anyone with access to your telephone, phone number, email account, or other owned electronic communication devices may listen to or read the messages that iCapital or our partners leave or send you, and you agree that we will have no liability for anyone accessing such messages.

Limitations on Withdrawing Consent to Electronic Communications
Please note, if you have previously submitted your information to iCapital, have provided us multiple phone numbers or email addresses, or have corresponded directly with one of our representatives in addition to using the Site, then we may have duplicate contact information associated with your account.
While we make every effort process all requests to withdraw communication consent, you may be still contacted in error. Please notify us at firstname.lastname@example.org if such an error occurs and we will take appropriate measures to resolve the issue.
You also acknowledge that withdrawing consent for one form of communication shall be exclusive to that form (for example, “unsubscribing” from emails will not automatically place you on a “do not call” list).
If you have received a funding product through your use of iCapital services and request to withdraw consent, then the separate terms and conditions of the funding agreement will take precedence, and iCapital, our business partners, and any representative or agent acting on their or our behalf may contact you by any means and as needed for any purpose, including enforcing contractual or legal rights and obligations.

The API’s utilized through the Site include transmitting your transactional data and other personal or business information to iCapital or our partners.
You agree that by linking your bank account via API through a third-party to iCapital, you grant us the authority as your agent to access this information at any time and as needed to monitor your performance.
iCapital bears no responsibility for the content, or availability of the content, provided by or through the use of third-party API’s.

You understand and agree that certain information or communications may be disclosed if required by law or legal process, or at the request of a third-party with reasonable cause, or if necessary, to protect, defend, or enforce iCapital’s rights.
