Terms & Conditions

We, CompareandInvest (ACN 629 365 206 Pty Ltd) operate the website CompareandInvest.com.au 

CompareandInvest.com.au  (‘C&I’, ‘us’ or ‘we’), provides you with a simple and convenient way to access and compare information regarding certain products, services and/or companies. C&I provides you with a diverse range of information, access to third party providers of financial services and financial products (Providers) and other services, but does not include all financial products or services in the market. 

Our publication of this information should not be interpreted as an endorsement of any product or a recommendation to invest. When considering any information on past performance of a Provider, you should consider this information in the context of the risks associated with any investment and be aware that past performance is not a reliable indicator of future performance. 

Many investment classes are speculative and investing in them involves significant risks. Investment returns can be highly volatile, vulnerable to capital loss and sensitive to secondary activity. Before investing you should obtain advice and consider whether the potential return outweighs the risks. All information contained in this website is general in nature and has been prepared without considering your objectives, financial situation or needs. Before making any investment decision, please ensure you read any Product Disclosure Statement, Prospectus or other disclosure document issued by the Provider, consider whether it is appropriate for your situation and seek appropriate education, taxation, financial and/or legal advice where necessary.

Access and use of the C&I website is subject to these terms and conditions (‘Terms of Use’). It is important that you understand these Terms, as they form a legal contract that governs your use of the site. By accessing or using the site, you agree to be bound by these Terms. If you do not agree to these Terms of Use, you are not permitted to access and use the C&I website and you should immediately cease access.

If you breach any of these Terms of Use then your right to use and access this website will immediately cease.

The C&I website is intended for users aged 18 years and over only. This website is frequently updated. You should also note that financial products may be withdrawn at any time, without notice.

We reserve the right to amend these Terms of Use at any time and also recommend that you refer back to these Terms of Use each time you visit the C&I Website.

2. Information about Providers & their products or services

The C&I website is intended to be used for research and comparison purposes only. Nothing on this website amounts to an offer by us or any third party provider to sell any product to you or enter into any contract with you.

The C&I website contains information regarding financial products, including statistics and features. Some of this information has been generalised in order to give you an easier way to compare Provider offerings. You should carefully review and consider the exact terms of any financial product as described in the Product Disclosure Statement or other offer document before deciding whether to acquire the product.

You can obtain information about a number of financial products through the C&I website simply by submitting a query on the website. The information about these financial products are provided to us by Providers over whom we do not have any control. 

C&I is not responsible for any advice, opinions, representations or statements made by Providers, or the quality of their financial products or services. You understand and agree that (i) CompareandInvest will not assume any liability with respect to your interactions with any Provider, and (ii) the knowledge and opinions of Providers is not ours, and we do not endorse them or any other information provided by any user.

C&I is not an agent for any Provider or Customer and is not authorised to make any representations on behalf of any Provider or Customer.

By using the C&I website, you acknowledge that you (the inquirer) are making a request to us for information regarding a product, service or platform of a third party. The information provided in response to your query is to be treated as information only and as no recommendation, opinion or endorsement by us for you to use or invest in the financial product or service.

The information about Providers’ financial products and services has been supplied to C&I by each Provider and C&I has not endorsed or adopted that information as its own representations.  C&I has not verified the truth or accuracy of this information and is merely passing on Providers’ information about their own financial products and services for what it is worth to you the website user. Before relying on information about Providers’ financial products and services, you should do your own research and enquire directly with the Providers, including where appropriate obtaining any Product Disclosure Statements and seeking professional financial advice.

Where possible, all product prices are stated in or against Australian Dollars (AUD).
