Applying For Business Funding
Consent to Conduct Business Electronically
Submitting a business funding application electronically through the Spearfish Site or by email 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 Spearfish, 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.
(d) 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.
(e) analyze the financial health of your business by obtaining proof of your business revenue. Proof of business revenue includes the choice of providing us with copies of your business bank statements or linking your transactional data using a secure third-party.
(f) obtain and review consumer and business credit reports; and to conduct further credit inquiries as required, which may impact your credit score.
Submission of Information and Eligibility Determinations
The following terms and conditions relate to the submission of your contact information via any Spearfish landing page or via any appointment booking software or by phone, email, or in person.
By submitting your information, you are providing express “written” consent to be contacted by one of our funding specialists in order to schedule and conduct your free consultation.
Filling out one of our contact forms, landing pages, or sending us your contact information and/or participating in a free consultation in no way guarantees that you or your business will be determined to be eligible for funding or be eligible for a specific amount or be eligible for specific terms or rates. We use third-party businesses to verify your information, to determine your eligibility, and to perform underwriting. Requirements for approval vary between funding options and may include good personal or business (Paydex) credit, credit of a particular score and/or “depth” (quality), minimum monthly revenue, minimum annual net salary, good credit on your customers’ part (in the case of invoice factoring), a set length of time in business, one or more co-signers, and other factors.
Credit requirements for particular funding options may include no bankruptcies, or no recent bankruptcies; no personal or bank liens; and other factors. Spearfish is not a bank or a financial institution and does not provide direct funding. Funding that is approved is approved by and dispersed by our underwriting, factoring, and finance partners. Spearfish is an independent sales organization providing factor broker, equipment leasing broker, and loan broker services for small businesses.

By clicking “continue” on our Application, you are providing written consent for Spearfish and our affiliate companies and business partners to obtain and review your consumer and business credit reports. The “soft pull” initiated by Spearfish 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 Spearfish cannot guarantee that your application will result in approval, or submission for approval, for any business funding products offered through our services.

During the application process you may withdraw your consent to receive all emails by contacting email@example.com, but understand that doing so will prohibit you from using our services or accessing any funding products offered through the site.

You agree that we may use prerecorded messages when leaving voicemails and may use automatic dialing technology to contact you.
You understand and acknowledge that receiving phone calls from Spearfish and our business partners is required to fulfill your request for business funding and to manage that relationship.

By providing Spearfish with your mobile telephone number, you consent to receive Short Message Service (SMS) communications, or “text” messages, to each mobile device provided by you.

Limitations on Withdrawing Consent to Electronic Communications
Please note, if you have previously submitted your information to Spearfish, 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 Spearfish services and request to withdraw consent, then the separate terms and conditions of the funding agreement will take precedence, and Spearfish, 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.

You acknowledge and agree that any of your electronic communications with us, including telephone calls, may be monitored or recorded at any time and without notice.
Monitoring may involve updating an inquiry into your credit, and reviewing your communications with us for quality assurance or training purposes, and to assess your financial readiness to receive business funding now or in the future.
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 Spearfish’s rights.

You may notify us directly through the Site, by contacting your Spearfish representative, or by emailing email@example.com.
All relevant notices, disclosure, payments or letters shall be considered received if sent by Spearfish to the contact information you provide.
