Terms Of Use


    Icompare.ca owns and operates the website located at www.Icompare.ca (“website”). These terms of use apply to all users of the website, including individuals who upload any materials to the website, users who use services provided through this website, and individuals who simply view the content on or available through this website (“users”/ “you”).

    These terms of use also apply to any third party website or service, such as a partner blog or social media platform that hosts Icompare.ca content (such as the Icompare.ca YouTube channel).

    By utilizing this website and/or service (defined below), you indicate your acceptance of these terms of use. If you do not accept these terms of use, then refrain from using the website or any of its content or services. These terms of use may be amended or updated by Icompare.ca periodically without notice, and the terms may have changed since your last visit to this website. It is your responsibility to review these terms of use for any modifications. Your use after any amendments or updates of these terms of use shall signify your assent to and acceptance of such revised terms. Any new features added to this website from time to time will be subject to these terms of use, unless stated otherwise. You should visit this page periodically to review these terms of use.

    In order to use specific features of the website, you may be required to provide particular personal information. All personal information you provide to us will be handled in accordance with the terms of our privacy policy, which is hereby incorporated by reference into these terms of use.

    The Service: Icompare.ca provides a comparison service for financial products including car insurance, mortgage rates, credit cards, bank accounts, and home, automobile, and life insurance, and obtains free credit reports from our partners (collectively, “financial products”), enabling users to compare rates and assess the advantages and disadvantages of financial products to select those best suited to their needs. In addition, there are certain financial products listed on the website for which we lack detailed information about features and benefits. For such products, you can submit your contact information, and we will forward your information and request directly to the third-party financial products provider or broker (“vendor”), who will contact you with more information about the requested financial product (the “services”).

    Service Disclaimer: By using the services, you understand and acknowledge that Icompare.ca provides a platform for users to obtain information on and compare third-party financial products. Icompare.ca is not a provider or vendor of financial products, nor is it a financial advisor. The information provided on the website is for informational purposes only and is not financial advice or any other kind of advice. Icompare.ca makes no representations or warranties about the accuracy of any information contained on the website and shall not be responsible for inaccuracies, misrepresentations, errors, or omissions in the information provided. Some information may not always be up to date. Additionally, some of the information about certain financial products appearing on the website is provided directly by vendors, not by Icompare.ca (“vendor content”). As between Icompare.ca and vendors, vendors are exclusively responsible for vendor content, and Icompare.ca shall not be responsible for any vendor content or for inaccuracies in any vendor content or any losses, claims, expenses, damages, or liabilities arising as a result of any vendor content. Users are strongly encouraged to use common sense and discretion and to conduct their research before relying on any information provided by the website and to consult an independent competent professional before transacting with any vendor for any financial product. We are not responsible for any advice provided by any professional you consult, nor are we responsible for the acts or omissions of any vendor or user or for any actual, failed, proposed, or discussed transaction following your use of the services or any other decisions you make as a result of using the website and/or services. Users hereby understand and agree to use the information contained on this website at their own risk.

    Registration: You do not need an account to view the website; however, certain features, such as a free credit report, will not be available to you without an account. Users have the option to register for an Icompare.ca account. To register for an account, you will be required to provide personal information such as your name, email, and address. You will also need to select a username and password. You are responsible for all activity on your account, so please select a strong password and do not share it with others. Icompare.ca is not liable for any activity occurring on your account, including unauthorized access. Please notify us immediately if you believe your account has been compromised.

    Rate Request Forms: For certain financial products (excluding insurance quotes, see section 5 below), you can click on a link on our website that redirects you to the vendor website to apply for the financial product you are interested in. For other financial products, you may need to fill out a request form (“request form”) for more information. If you fill out a request form, you will need to provide additional personal information, including your name, phone number, location, preferred contact method, and specific details about the financial product you are interested in (e.g., if you are interested in mortgage rates, you may need to provide the approximate amount of mortgage you require). We will forward your request form to the applicable vendor, who will then contact you using your preferred contact method. You hereby consent to our collection and processing of the information you provide in your request form and its submission to the vendor offering the financial product you are interested in.

    Insurance Quotes: If you are interested in an insurance quote, you will be asked to provide your postal code or province. Once you submit your postal code, you may be redirected to one of the Icompare.ca partners where you can input your information and receive an insurance quote. We may have different partners depending on the type of insurance you need. Additionally, the information you will be asked to provide will differ depending on your insurance needs. By submitting your postal code or province, you consent to being redirected to the website of one of our partners.

    User Eligibility for Financial Products: Users understand and agree that any transaction for financial products is between the user and the vendor. Users may not be eligible for all the financial products listed on the website or for the rates displayed on the website. The vendor, not Icompare.ca, is responsible for approving or denying any application for financial products at its sole discretion.

    Icompare.ca Fees: The website and service are free for users. However, users understand and agree that Icompare.ca may receive fees for submitting request forms or making referrals to certain vendors and/or our partner organizations.

    User Content: All information, data, text, comments, software, music, sound, photographs, graphics, video, messages, or other materials, whether publicly posted or privately transmitted to the website by users in forums or otherwise (“user content”), is the sole responsibility of the users. This means that users, not Icompare.ca, are entirely responsible for all such material uploaded, posted, emailed, transmitted, or otherwise made available by using the service. Icompare.ca does not control or actively monitor user content and, as such, does not guarantee the accuracy, integrity, or quality of such content. Users acknowledge that by using the service, they may be exposed to materials that are offensive, indecent, or objectionable.
