Who Are We?

showtheplanet inc., is an independent information gathering and marketing firm. We are not an automotive dealer, bank or lender, and consequently we are not qualified nor registered to provide vehicles, financing or quotes for vehicles or financial products to the public directly. We do not arrange for or facilitate credit, nor are we engaged in the leasing or selling of vehicles. The submission of an application to us does not constitute preapproval of credit and is not an application for credit. Further, the material included on the Site is for informational purposes only. Listings, logos or reference to finance companies, banks or vehicle manufacturers (if any) are not to be construed as advertising or endorsement in any form.

ALL INFORMATION SUBMITTED TO US IS TREATED AS IS CONFIDENTIAL, AND MAY BE TRANSFERRED BY US TO AUTOMOTIVE DEALERS, FINANCE COMPANIES OR OTHER ORGANIZATIONS OR INDIVIDUALS THAT MAY BE ABLE TO PROVIDE YOU WITH THE REQUESTED SERVICE (HEREIN REFERRED TO INDIVIDUALLY AS "PROVIDER" AND COLLECTIVELY AS "PROVIDERS"). NOTHING ON THIS WEB SITE SHOULD BE CONSTRUED AS AN OFFER TO BUY, SELL, FINANCE OR DELIVER VEHICLE(S).

Products and Services

You understand, and agree that if you submit a request for a service offered through the Service, we will share your personal information with one or more Providers to fulfill, and/or process your request.

We do not guarantee that any particular vehicle shown on the Site or in our advertisements is available for sale by a Provider in your geographic area or, even if that vehicle is available, that you will be qualified to purchase it. Availability of any vehicles or financing options (if any) is solely within the control and discretion of the Provider and will be subject to such terms and conditions as they may determine. We do not guarantee the products or services of any Provider will be offered or provided to you at any rate, or at all.

We do not have administrative or other control over Provider products and services, offer no warranties or representations, and accept no responsibility or liability in respect of any Providers products or services, or a user’s use of them. In any transactions or proposed transactions with third parties, including motor vehicle dealerships and credit organizations whom you have come in contact with through the use of the Service, you agree that we are not the seller or provider. Your agreement to purchase any products or services from a third party or to otherwise enter into negotiations or transactions with a third party is solely between you and the third party, and not us. Under no circumstances will we be responsible or liable for any loss or damage of any kind incurred as a result of, or in connection with, any discussions, negotiations, correspondence, agreements or other business dealings by you with any third parties, including any dealers, credit organizations or advertisers found on or through the use of the Site, and including payment for and delivery of related goods and services.

Any compensation we may receive is paid by the individual Provider, for the products and services rendered by us to that particular Provider. We do not charge you a fee to use our Site or the Service.
