LEAD CONTENT AND GUARANTEE
Auto-Routed Leads: This is the most convenient and highest level of service available. Lead costs reflected under this superior level of service are influenced by the filter choices you make. By electing this level of service, leads are automatically sent to you each business day based upon the filter criteria you choose. When reference is made on our website as to the age of a lead, that age is stated in terms of business days, not calendar days.
Leads are procured from varying commercial resources. atleads.com, inc. employs internal data validation procedures and makes every effort to ensure you receive only valid leads. These efforts may include a 24 hour lock-down period to phone verify the leads before they are distributed. Nevertheless, as the actual age of the data received may be different than the date atleads.com, inc. received the lead, occasionally a lead may contain information that, though consistent with our validation criteria, is no longer valid.
We guarantee each Auto-Routed Lead to be a valid lead as defined in the “Definitions” section of this Agreement. Leads provided under your Initial Block Commitment that are subsequently shown to be Invalid Leads as defined in prior sections of this Agreement, will be replaced with a valid lead. No refunds to your account will be made during your initial Block commitment period. For leads purchased after your initial Block Commitment period, we will credit to your account the amount you paid for any Automatically Routed Lead that are subsequently shown to be an Invalid Lead as defined in prior sections of this Agreement according to our standard lead dispute and refund policy set forth in this Agreement.
Data provided within a lead is inputted solely by the consumer and not atleads.com, inc. or anyone affiliated with us. Consumers do not submit their contact information directly to atleads.com, inc.. A lead may come to atleads.com, inc. from a variety of provider commercial sources only some of which may be owned by us. We do not guarantee the age of the data contained in a lead , the age of the consumers OPT-In request or with whom they originally submitted their Opt-in contact information or that the consumer, when contacted, will remember submitting their contact information on an OPT-in request. We do not guarantee that their email address is correct or that their stated home value, requested loan amount, credit quality, or interest rate is exactly correct as these are estimates entered by the consumer when completing the application. How you approach and handle each lead is up to you and not under the control of atleads.com, inc.. As such, WE DO NOT GUARANTEE YOU’RE RESULTS OR THAT YOU WILL CLOSE ANY LOANS WITH OUR LEADS. Since most of our leads are non-exclusive, the customer may have started a loan process with another Loan Officer, so this is not a valid reason for a dispute, refund or credit. Similarly, Consumers often will change their mind after they submit a request for contact and thus not be willing to apply for a loan with you, so this is not a valid reason for a dispute, refund or credit. We recommend contacting the customer as soon as you get the lead so you can be the first to earn their business.
atleads.com, inc. reserves the right to change or adjust this policy without prior notice to you. You are therefore encouraged to review these Terms of Service periodically.
“CHERRYPICKER” Leads: Under this option, you must manually choose the leads you wish to purchase each time you log in to your account. Lead costs are discounted for this level of service and leads may range in age from one (1) business days to fourteen (14) business weeks old. Since these leads are non-exclusive and these Leads tend to be older than the leads provided under the Auto-Routed Leads option above, there is a chance the customer may already be working with another Loan Officer so this is not a valid reason for you to dispute the lead. However, we find that brokers still have a great return on their investment on our older leads.
“ALL “CHERRY PICKER” LEADS ARE SOLD IS AND THEIR ARE ABSOLUTLY NO RETURNS PERMITTED”. Leads provided under your Initial Volume Commitment that are subsequently shown to be an Invalid Lead as defined in the “Definitions” section of this Agreement, will be replaced with a valid lead. No refunds or credits to your account will be made during your initial Volume commitment period. For leads purchased after your initial Volume Commitment period, we will credit to your account the amount you paid for any “CHERRYPICKER” lead that is subsequently shown to be an Invalid Lead as defined in the “Definitions” section of this Agreement according to our standard lead dispute and refund policy set forth in this Agreement.
Data provided within a lead is inputted by the consumer and not atleads.com, inc.. We do not guarantee the age of the data contained in a lead or that their email address is correct or that their stated home value, requested loan amount, credit quality, or interest rate is exactly correct as these are estimates entered by the consumer when completing the application. We do not GUARANTEE that the customer has not changed their mind or that they have not already refinanced with another broker. These leads are discounted to accommodate for such circumstances. As they are older leads and likely previously distributed leads, these situations are likely to occur. How you approach and handle each Lead is up to you and not under the control of atleads.com, inc.. As such, WE DO NOT GUARANTEE YOU’RE RESULTS OR THAT YOU WILL CLOSE ANY LOANS WITH OUR LEADS.
