"GetFinancing Multi-Lenders Platform" is the payment system which allows me to pay for purchases from participating Merchants by charging the Costs of my purchase to my Account with the Lender(s) that has agreed to extend financing to me in order to complete my original purchase. In this Agreement it may be called simply “GetFinancing".

“Revolving Purchases” means the Lender(s) issues the Borrower a line of credit, typically with a stated or set limit, where outstanding amounts reduce the availability of credit capacity and such credit capacity is made available when the Borrower repays the Lender(s). The line of credit typically revolves because the Account has no termination date and the Lender(s) makes credit available to the Borrower on a continuing basis so long as the Account is in good standing and neither the Lender(s) nor the Borrower terminates the Account.
(ii) Installment Parts.
"Installment Purchases" are loans from the installment part of the account, which will be repaid in monthly installments called "Monthly Payments-Plans." "Interest-free Installment Purchases," if offered by the Lender(s), will not be subject to interest imposed by the Lender(s), if Borrower pays the balance in full by the End Date as described below.

((iii) Leases Part.
“Lease-To-Own” financing program is the arrangement where the Borrower enters into a lease agreement with the Lender(s) with the inclusion of a clause that typically gives the Borrower the right, but not the obligation, to purchase the item leased at a predefined price and time. The Borrower promises to make lease payments for a defined period unless the Borrower decides to exercise his/her Early Purchase Option. Payments made under this lease are applied first to any fees or other charges due to the Lender and then to lease amounts due. After the initial term, the Borrower have 3 options: (1) continue the lease on a month-to-month basis by retaining possession of the Property, in which case additional periodic payment(s) must be made in the same frequency and amount as during the Borrower’s initial term, (2) Purchase the Property by exercising the purchase option, (3) Terminate the lease agreement by returning the Property to the Lender in good condition, fair wear and tear excepted.

"Closed-end Loan" means a closed-end loan from the Lender(s) to the Borrower, the proceeds of which are paid to a Merchant to pay the Cost of Borrower's purchase from the Merchant, using GetFinancing, at a time when the Borrower does not have an active Account or a portion of the Account is used to extend a Closed-end Loan.
"Cost" means the price of any item I purchase from a Merchant using GetFinancing, plus any fee or charge I agree to pay the Lender(s), including Interest Charges, the cost of shipping and taxes, less any applicable discount or credit offered by the Merchant.
“Deferred Interest Purchases” mean for example purchases I make for which the Merchant or the Lender(s) offers a period of months where there is no interest due or payable; it being noted that the specific terms and conditions for such Deferred Interest Purchases, if any, will be determined by the Lender(s).

The Lender(s) may then report you as delinquent if you do not pay the amount that was determined that you owe.
If you receive an explanation but still believe your bill is wrong, you must write within 10 days telling the Lender(s) that you still refuse to pay. If you do so, the Lender(s) cannot report you as delinquent without also reporting that you are questioning your bill. The Lender(s) must tell you the name of anyone to whom they reported you as delinquent, and must let those organizations know when the matter has been settled.
Your Rights If You Are Dissatisfied With Your Account Purchases
If you are dissatisfied with the goods or services that you have purchased with your Account and you have tried in good faith to correct the problem with the Merchant, you may have the right not to pay the remaining amount due on the purchase.
Contact The Lender(s) at the address listed on the Billing Statement, or on the Lender(s)’s website.
20. COLLECTION AND USE OF BANK ACCOUNT INFORMATION.
If the Lender(s) extend credit to a consumer, they will consider the bank account information provided by the consumer as eligible to process payments against. In addition, as part of the information collection process, The Lender(s) may detect additional bank accounts under the ownership of the consumer. These accounts will be considered additional accounts to be part of the application process.
