You will have to ask the Lender for that

Lenders pay to advertise on CK..... CK is neither affiliated with (other than advertising purposes, keeping the site free for you) nor are involved in the lending process.  So when you select a lender listed on CK to apply with, you are leaving the CK website and entering the lender's website and application page.  CK's involvement in the process ends there. 

After that it's up to the lender as to how to treat your credit application.  That includes preforming a soft or hard inquiry in their process when you apply.  Some lenders will only preform a soft inquiry on your credit, and that inquiry will not show up on your credit report or be included in your score.  However, some lenders will perform a hard inquiry when you apply, and that WILL show up on your credit report and in your credit score later. 

Since you are considering applying for credit.... I suggest you look for and read ALL of the details of the loan (usually found through a link labeled as FULL TERMS and CONDITIONS somewhere on the application page) PRIOR to actually applying.  And if the details are not available on the website, contact the customer support for any questions you have before applying.  BEWARE that not all terms for a bank's application process are the same.  Meaning that if you check the details on one card, or loan product, don’t just assume that the details will be the same on the next card, or loan product; even if they are with the same bank.  Read the complete terms on EACH PRODUCT before you apply.
