Terms of Use

Terms of Use

Welcome to the Lending Club financial platform. The Lending Club service and network (collectively, the " Service") are operated by LendingClub Corporation, a Delaware corporation ("the Company," "we," or "us"). By accessing or using our web site at www.Lendingclub.com, including any subdomain thereof (the "Site"), you (the "User") signify that you have read, understand and agree to be bound by these terms of use ("Terms of Use"), regardless of whether you are a registered member of the Service. In addition to these Terms of Use, you may enter into other agreements with us or others that will govern your use of the Service or related services offered by us or others. If there is any contradiction between these Terms of Use and another agreement you enter into applicable to specific aspects of the Service, the other agreement shall take precedence in relation to the specific aspects of the Service to which it applies. As used herein, "Users" means anyone who accesses and/or uses the Site. For any terms herein applicable to all Users, all investor members, or business and other entity Users specifically, or where the context otherwise requires, "Users" shall be deemed to include any business or other entity on behalf of which the Site or Service is accessed by any other User, and "you" shall be deemed to include any such business or other entity and any person acting on behalf of any such business or other entity in connection with the use of the Site or Service. For purposes of these Terms of Use, a sole proprietor participating in our Small Business lending program is deemed to be acting on behalf of a business.

Changes to these Terms of Use

We may make changes to these Terms of Use from time to time. If we do this, we will post the changed Terms of Use on the Site and will indicate at the top of this page the date the Terms of Use were last revised. You understand and agree that your continued use of the Service or the Site after we have made any such changes constitutes your acceptance of the new Terms of Use.

ALL USERS: CONSENT TO ELECTRONIC TRANSACTIONS AND DISCLOSURES

Because LendingClub operates only on the Internet, it is necessary for you to consent to transact business with us online and electronically. As part of doing business with us and WebBank, a Utah industrial bank that is the lender of all loans ("WBK"), therefore, we also need you to consent to our giving you certain disclosures electronically, either via our Site or to the email address you provide to us. By agreeing to the Terms of Use, you agree to receive electronically all documents, communications, notices, contracts, and agreements (including any IRS Form 1099) arising from or relating to your use of the Site and Service, including any loans you may request or receive, your registration as a borrower or investor on our Site, any loans you may fund, notes you have purchased, your use of this Service, and the servicing of your loan, if funded, as either a borrower or investor member of LendingClub (each, a "Disclosure"), from us, whether we are acting in the capacity as trustee or otherwise, or WBK. An IRS Form 1099 refers to any Form 1099 or other Form, Schedule or information statement, including corrections of such documents, required to be provided pursuant to U.S. Internal Revenue Service rules and regulations and that may be provided electronically (each, an "IRS Form 1099"). The decision to do business with us and WBK electronically is yours. This document informs you of your rights concerning Disclosures.

Electronic Communications. Any Disclosures will be provided to you electronically through lendingclub.com either on our Site or via electronic mail to the verified email address you provided. If you require paper copies of such Disclosures, you may write to us at the mailing address provided below and a paper copy will be sent to you at a cost of up to $5.00. If you do not consent to receive an IRS Form 1099 electronically when you agree to these Terms of Use or subsequently revoke such consent, a paper copy of any IRS Form 1099 required to be delivered to you after the effective time of your failure to consent or revocation of consent will be sent to you at no cost. However, a fee may be charged for any additional or replacement copies of such IRS Form 1099. A request for a paper copy of any Disclosure will not be considered a withdrawal of your consent to receive Disclosures electronically. Any IRS 1099 Forms provided electronically will remain accessible through at least October 15 of the year in which such IRS Form 1099 is made available; after that time the IRS Form 1099 may no longer be accessible electronically. We may discontinue electronic provision of Disclosures at any time in our sole discretion.

Scope of Consent. Your consent to receive Disclosures and transact business electronically, and our agreement to do so, applies to any transactions to which such Disclosures relate, whether between you and LendingClub or between you and WBK. Your consent will remain in effect for so long as you are a User and, if you are no longer a User, will continue until such a time as all Disclosures relevant to transactions that occurred while you were a User have been made.

Consenting to Do Business Electronically. Before you decide to do business electronically with LendingClub or WBK, you should consider whether you have the required hardware and software capabilities described below.

Hardware and Software Requirements. In order to access and retain Disclosures electronically, you must satisfy the following computer hardware and software requirements: access to the Internet; an email account and related software capable of receiving email through the Internet; a web browser which is SSL-compliant and supports secure sessions, such as Internet Explorer 5.0 or above and Netscape Navigator 6.0 or above, or the equivalent software; and hardware capable of running this software.

TCPA Consent: I expressly consent to receiving calls and messages, including auto-dialed and pre-recorded message calls, and SMS messages (including text messages) from us, our affiliates, agents and others calling at their request or on their behalf, at any telephone numbers that you have provided or may provide in the future (including any cellular telephone numbers). Your cellular or mobile telephone provider will charge you according to the type of plan you carry.

Additional Mobile Technology Requirements. If you are accessing our site and the Disclosures electronically via a mobile device (such as a smart phone, tablet, and the like), in addition to the above requirements you must make sure that you have software on your mobile device that allows you to print and save the Disclosures presented to you during the application process. These applications can be found for most mobile devices in the device's respective "app store". If you do not have these capabilities on your mobile device, please access our site through a device that provides these capabilities.

Withdrawing Consent. You may withdraw your consent to receive Disclosures electronically by contacting us at the address below. However, once you have withdrawn your consent you will not be able to post loan requests on our Site. If you have a pending loan request on our Site we will terminate it and remove it from our system. If you have already received a loan, all previously agreed to terms and conditions will remain in effect, and we will send Disclosures to your verified home address provided during registration (except with regard to participants in our Small Business lending program, as discussed under "Terms Applicable to Business and Other Entity Users" below). If you are an investor member on the Site and you withdraw your consent to receive Disclosures electronically, you may continue to contribute funds to requests on the Site. If you have already purchased one or more notes, all previously agreed to terms and conditions will remain in effect, and we will send Disclosures to your verified home address provided during registration (except with regard to investor members that are entities, as discussed under "Terms Applicable to Business and Other Entity Users" below).

If you withdraw your consent to receive IRS Forms 1099 electronically, we will confirm your withdrawal and its effective date in writing by email. Such withdrawal will take effect for the calendar year in which it is made so long as such withdrawal is made before November 1 of such calendar year.

You may also reach us in writing to us at the following address: LendingClub Corporation, 71 Stevenson St., Suite 300, San Francisco, CA 94105, Attention: Compliance.
