This page sets out the general conditions for the use of the Credit Indicator tool (“CI tool” ) and related services for customers resident in the United Kingdom (“UK”). If you decide to submit a full credit application for vehicle finance, any offer for such finance will have additional terms and conditions. If we offer you vehicle on submission of a full credit application we will make it clear at the time the full terms and conditions of that offer. YOU SHOULD READ THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS ("TERMS") CAREFULLY BEFORE USING THIS CI TOOL. USING THE CI TOOL INDICATES THAT YOU ACCEPT THESE TERMS. IF YOU DO NOT ACCEPT THESE TERMS, DO NOT USE THE CI TOOL.
We may revise these Terms at any time and you should periodically check the website to review the current Terms because they are binding on you. Certain provisions of these Terms may be superseded by expressly designated legal notices or terms located on particular pages of the Black Horse Limited website.
Who can use this site?
The CI tool described here is ONLY available to you if you are resident in and access the site from within the UK (excluding Channel Islands and Isle of Man) and you are 18 years of age or over.
1. SERVICE ACCESS
While the CI tool is normally available 24 hours a day, it may not always be available 24 hours a day, and we shall not be liable if for any reason the CI tool is unavailable at any time. Access to the CI tool may be suspended temporarily and without notice in the case of system failure, maintenance or repair or for reasons beyond our control.
The Credit Indicator tool is here to give you information about whether we may be able to provide you with finance for your vehicle purchase. It is an indicator of what your credit status is at the time of you submitting a Credit Indication form. It is not a full application for credit and cannot be relied on until a full credit application is made and you are offered finance.
The Credit Indication is powered by Experian free of charge to you and does not impact your credit rating. Experian, the Credit reference who will conduct the CI will record the search on its systems but this will not be visible to other lenders and will not affect your ability to borrow from them. If you are financially linked to someone, i.e. a partner with whom you have a joint account, their data may also be used to form a CI for you.
The results of the Credit Indicator application may be inconclusive and we do not guarantee that a full credit application will allow us to lend to you.
You should check details about important things like price or interest rates in any actual agreement you sign as it is the terms in that document that form the agreement between us if and when any finance is offered.
