About Our Services

Applications for loans submitted through the Site may be funded by one of several Lenders, including Artis. Artis may originate loans in states where it has obtained appropriate state licenses or is otherwise authorized to make consumer loans under applicable state law. Artis is not a broker. We use the information you provide us to allow our Lenders to offer loans that may be of interest to you. Information you provide will be enriched with other data sources, such as your credit report, to determine if you meet the eligibility criteria for a loan. After we analyze the information you provide and if you are eligible to apply for a loan, then we may display loan options that may interest you. You will then have the opportunity to select one of these options. If you do not meet the eligibility criteria for a loan, then we may not provide you with any options. When you apply for a loan, you agree to provide current, complete and accurate information. If any information you provide is untrue, inaccurate, or incomplete, we have the right to reject any application you have submitted or terminate any agreement we have with you.

Dispute Resolution, Governing Law, Waivers and Limitations

YOU AGREE THAT ANY DISPUTE BETWEEN YOU AND US, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION, DISPUTES RELATING TO THE SITE, CONTENT OR SERVICES (“DISPUTE”), SHALL BE FINALLY AND EXCLUSIVELY RESOLVED BY THE AMERICAN ARBITRATION ASSOCIATION (AAA) AS EXPLAINED BELOW..

Any Dispute, whether based in contract, tort or otherwise, shall be resolved by binding arbitration under the expedited procedures of the Commercial Financial Disputes Arbitration Rules of the American Arbitration Association and the Federal Arbitration Act in Title 9 of the United States Code. Arbitration hearings will be held in the city where Artis is headquartered. A single arbitrator will be appointed by the AAA and will be an attorney or a retired judge with experience and knowledge in financial transactions. Any issue concerning whether or the extent to which a Dispute or other claim is subject to arbitration, including but not limited to issues relating to the validity or enforceability of these arbitration provisions, shall be determined by the arbitrator. All statutes of limitation or other defenses relating to the timeliness of the assertion of a Dispute or claim that otherwise would be applicable to an action brought in a court of law shall be applicable in any such arbitration, and the commencement of an arbitration under this Terms of Use Agreement shall be deemed the commencement of an action for such purposes. No provision of this paragraph shall restrict the ability of any person to exercise all rights and remedies available under applicable law or this Terms of Use Agreement; provided, however, that the exercise of those rights or remedies is subject to the right of any other person to demand arbitration as provided herein. The commencement of legal action by a person entitled to demand arbitration does not waive the right of that person to demand arbitration with respect to any counterclaim or other claim. No person entitled to demand arbitration hereunder shall be permitted to assert a dispute or claim that is on behalf of any other person. Similarly, an arbitration proceeding under this Terms of Use Agreement may not be consolidated with other arbitration proceedings. Judgment upon the award rendered in arbitration shall be final and may be entered in any court, state or federal, having jurisdiction. Be aware that:

  1. Arbitration awards are generally final and binding; a party's ability to have a court reverse or modify an arbitration award is very limited.
  2. The ability of the parties to obtain documents, witness statements and other discovery is generally more limited in arbitration than in court proceedings.
  3. The arbitrators do not have to explain the reason(s) for their award.
  4. The rules of some arbitration forums may impose time limits for bringing a claim in arbitration. In some cases, a claim that is ineligible for arbitration may be brought in court.
  5. The rules of the arbitration forum in which the claim is filed and any amendments thereto, shall be incorporated into this agreement.



IF A DISPUTE OR CLAIM IS NOT SUBJECT TO ARBITRATION FOR ANY REASON, THEN THE DISPUTE OR CLAIM SHALL BE DECIDED IN A COURT OF COMPETENT JURISDICTION WITHOUT A JURY. YOU AND ARTIS WAIVE ALL RIGHTS TO A TRIAL BY JURY.

The terms and conditions of this Terms of Use Agreement shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of Georgia. Any issue relating to the Services you obtain from Artis, a Lender, Provider or any other third party which you access through the Site shall be governed by the laws specified in that agreement for that specific loan or service if a separate, applicable agreement governs. 

You also agree that any Dispute or cause of action arising out of or related to the Site, Services or Content must be commenced within one year from the later of: (1) the date when the dispute or cause of action accrues; or (2) through the exercise of reasonable diligence, the date when you should have known about the accrual of the cause of action. Otherwise, such cause of action shall be permanently barred.

This Terms of Use Agreement (including all referenced or incorporated policies, agreements and other provisions) constitutes the entire agreement between you and Artis and supersedes all prior or contemporaneous oral or written agreements or other communications between you and Artis with respect to the subject matter hereof. If a conflict arises between the these Terms of Use and any terms incorporated by reference, the latter incorporated terms shall control.

You acknowledge that in agreeing to these Terms of Use, you are not relying on any representation, warranty, statement or promise, express or implied, not explicitly set forth in these Terms of Use, and you hereby waive any claimed reliance on same. If any provision of these Terms of Use is found to be invalid or unenforceable, you agree such provision shall, to the maximum extent feasible, be modified to render it enforceable with respect to the Dispute and to reflect, to the maximum extent possible, the parties’ intent when the provision is considered in the context of these Terms of Use. Such provision, as modified, shall be enforced with respect to the underlying claims in the Dispute at issue, and that any finding of invalidity or unenforceability of any provision of these Terms of Use shall not affect the validity or enforceability of the remaining provisions of these Terms of Use.

Terms Applicable to All Services

By submitting any form through the Site, and separately for each such request you submit, you are indicating that you desire to be contacted by Artis, and you are providing express written consent that Artis or a third party on Artis’s behalf may deliver telephone calls or text messages to you, including to your cellular telephone number, for any purpose, including for marketing purposes, using an automatic telephone dialing system or an artificial or prerecorded voice to the telephone number you have provided. You understand that you are providing this consent to receive such telephone calls even if your telephone number is currently listed on any federal, state, local, internal, or corporate Do-Not-Call (“DNC”) List. You understand that you are not required to consent to receive these communications as a condition of using the Services.

You consent to receive email from Artis, its affiliates, its Lenders, and its Providers at the email address you provided or at other email addresses that may be associated with you that we receive from Lenders, Providers or other third parties.

You agree that the consent described herein shall remain valid and effective until you revoke such consent by opting out as described below.

You may opt out of receiving calls or marketing material from Artis at any time by emailing support@heyartis.com and expressly stating in writing that you no longer wish to be contacted by Artis and are revoking your consent to be contacted. This request applies only to Artis and is not applicable to Lenders or Partners, who must be contacted separately by you with the same request. Requests for suspension of marketing and other contacts may be overridden by existing law, including but not limited to, financial regulations that may require maintenance of customer records or email communication of tax forms.

Please note that a completed form you submit to Artis through the Site may not be an application for credit. Rather, it may be an inquiry for Artis to present conditional offers. (Any application for credit will be specifically labeled to indicate such purpose.)

Accordingly, you agree that Artis may send your information to certain affiliates and third parties as provided in the Privacy Policy, and you agree that Artis, its affiliates, and persons calling on Artis’s behalf may contact you using information you provided with information and offers of services available through Artis and the Site.

Artis may also maintain and share information provided by you and about you by third parties for internal marketing and analytic purposes. 

Services offered by Lenders and Providers may only be made to residents of states where Lenders are authorized to make such loans or Providers are authorized to provide Services. A Lender’s participation in and offering of its products on the Site does not constitute an offer by any Lender or by Artis to provide the Services outside of its authorized jurisdiction(s), and to the extent you seek or receive information from a Lender or Provider regarding any prospective service that would be outside of the Lenders’ or Providers’ authorized jurisdictions, that information shall be considered for informational purposes only. Lenders shall have the right to discontinue, suspend, or terminate the offering of any loan product or Service in any specific state through the Site at any time, without prior notice.

We do not guarantee your acceptance into any particular program or the granting of specific terms or conditions with any specific Lender or Provider; approval standards are established and maintained solely by individual Lenders. Likewise, we do not guarantee that the rates offered by the Lenders include the lowest rates available in the market or the rate that the Lenders will ultimately charge you. A Lender’s conditional loan offer may be subject to market conditions, approval, and qualification, or other risk assessment factors. The rates and fees actually provided by a lenders may be higher or lower depending on your complete credit profile, collateral/property considerations (if applicable), including but not limited to location, equity and value and income/asset consideration including but not limited to Loan to value and debt to income ratios. Unless expressly stated in writing, nothing contained herein shall constitute an offer or promise for a loan commitment or interest rate lock-in agreement. Lenders and Providers may not offer all products, or any products, in all states. You understand that you might not be matched with the Lender making any specific offer. 

By clicking on any button indicating an acceptance or agreement to terms, a continuance of processing or submission (collectively, a “submission”), you understand that you are consenting, acknowledging, and agreeing to the stated terms and conditions of that submission and that you are submitting an inquiry for a Service through Artis to each of the Lenders to whom your Loan request is transmitted.
