Credit Monitoring (including TransUnion Credit Monitoring Basic, TransUnion Credit Monitoring, TrueIdentity, and other credit monitoring products offered on or through this site) is provided by TransUnion Interactive, Inc. Credit Monitoring monitors one or more of your credit files, depending upon the type of Credit Monitoring you select, which are separately owned and/or maintained by each of the applicable credit bureaus: TransUnion LLC, Experian, and Equifax. Credit Monitoring monitors the credit file most closely identified with you based on multiple identifying factors such as first, middle and last names, current and former addresses, Social Security number and date of birth. Credit Monitoring may not advise or alert you if an item of identifying information about you (including your name or address or Social Security number) is contained in the applicable credit bureau's credit file of another person, and will not provide you with any information contained in another individual's credit file. Credit Monitoring does not monitor, compare or cross-reference your credit file (s) with the credit files(s) of any other person.
Please remember that there are different processing times for the commencement of monitoring at each credit reporting bureau, therefore you may not be enrolled in all of them at the same time. Monitoring with TransUnion LLC usually begins within 48 hours of enrollment. Monitoring with Equifax and Experian takes on average approximately 4 days to begin, though in some cases monitoring cannot be initiated during the trial period, (if a trial period applies). TransUnion Interactive does not control and is not responsible for the enrollment process.
When you order a single bureau credit monitoring product from TransUnion Interactive, TransUnion requests that TransUnion LLC enroll you in its credit monitoring service. When you order a credit monitoring product from TransUnion Interactive that monitors credit files at three credit bureaus, TransUnion Interactive requests that each individual credit bureau enrolls you in their respective credit monitoring service.
The TransUnion single bureau credit monitoring product is conditioned upon successful enrollment by TransUnion LLC in its credit monitoring service; if TransUnion LLC is not able to enroll you, your order will be cancelled and you will not be charged or you will not receive alerts or monitoring of changes to your TransUnion credit file.
Your order of any three bureau credit monitoring product is conditioned upon successful enrollment by at least one credit bureau in its credit monitoring product. If no credit bureau is able to enroll you in its credit monitoring program, your order will be cancelled, and you will not receive alerts or monitoring of changes to any of your credit files. In the event that one or two credit bureaus, but not all three bureaus, are able to enroll you in their credit monitoring, credit monitoring will be provided by the bureau or bureaus that were able to enroll you; you will not receive alerts or monitoring of changes to the credit files of the bureau or bureaus that were not able to enroll you in their respective credit monitoring programs.
In the event you order a three-bureau credit monitoring product, by placing your order, you agree that, if fewer than all three credit bureaus enroll you in their credit monitoring; TransUnion Interactive is authorized to monitor only the credit files at the bureau or bureaus that enrolled you. Any such credit monitoring will be provided at the price agreed upon; you will not be eligible for a price reduction, discount or refund. TransUnion Interactive will notify you in the event that fewer than all three credit bureaus enroll you in credit monitoring, but such notification may not occur during your trial period, if any.

AGREEMENT TO RESOLVE DISPUTES BY BINDING INDIVIDUAL ARBITRATION
THIS SECTION IS AN AGREEMENT TO ARBITRATE DISPUTES ("ARBITRATION AGREEMENT") THAT MAY ARISE AS A RESULT OF YOUR TRANSUNION INTERACTIVE MEMBERSHIPS, PRODUCTS OR SERVICES OR THE AGREEMENT. READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY. YOU UNDERSTAND AND AGREE THAT BOTH PARTIES WOULD HAVE HAD A RIGHT TO LITIGATE DISPUTES THROUGH A COURT AND TO HAVE A JUDGE OR JURY DECIDE THEIR CASE, BUT BOTH PARTIES BY ENTERING INTO THIS AGREEMENT CHOOSE TO HAVE ANY DISPUTE RESOLVED THROUGH BINDING INDIVIDUAL ARBITRATION. OTHER RIGHTS THAT YOU WOULD HAVE IF YOU WENT TO COURT MAY NOT BE AVAILABLE OR MAY BE MORE LIMITED IN ARBITRATION, INCLUDING YOUR RIGHT TO APPEAL.
RIGHT TO REJECT ARBITRATION
YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO REJECT THIS ARBITRATION AGREEMENT, BUT YOU MUST EXERCISE THIS RIGHT PROMPTLY. You must notify us in writing within sixty (60) days after the date you click-on to "Accept" the Agreement. You must send your request to: TransUnion Interactive, 100 Cross Street, Suite 202, San Luis Obispo, CA 93401. This request must include your current username and a clear statement of your intent, such as "I reject the arbitration clause in the TransUnion Interactive Service Agreement."
In consideration for our willingness to provide you with access to TransUnion Interactive or any services or products through the Site as set forth in the Agreement, you and we agree as follows:
You agree that any dispute, claim or controversy ("Claim") between you and TransUnion Interactive or its parent, TransUnion, our agents, contractors, employees, officers or assignees, arising out of or relating in any way to this Agreement, your purchase and use of a TransUnion Interactive product or use of this Site, including, without limitation, tort and contract claims, claims based on any federal, state or local statute, law or regulation and the issue of arbitrability must be resolved exclusively by binding arbitration, except for the validity, scope or enforceability of this Arbitration Agreement. However, we will not demand arbitration pursuant to this Arbitration Agreement in connection with any individual Claim that you properly file and pursue in a small-claims court of your state or municipality, so long as the Claim is pending only in that court.
YOU UNDERSTAND AND AGREE THAT NO CLAIM, DISPUTE OR CONTROVERSY MAY BE CONSOLIDATED WITH A DISPUTE OF ANY OTHER PERSON IN ARBITRATION, OR RESOLVED ON A CLASS-WIDE BASIS BY A CLASS ACTION OR OTHER PROCEEDING AND YOU HEREBY WAIVE YOUR RIGHT TO COMMENCE OR PARTICIPATE IN ANY SUCH COLLECTIVE OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. Unless a different procedure is required by applicable law, the arbitration will be conducted before a single arbitrator in accordance with the rules of the American Arbitration Association ("AAA"), including the AAA's Supplementary Procedures for Consumer-Related Disputes.
A demand for arbitration under this Arbitration Agreement may be made either before or after a lawsuit or other legal proceeding begins. However, any demand for arbitration that is made after a lawsuit or other legal proceeding has begun must be made within 90 days following the service of a complaint, third-party complaint, cross-claim or counterclaim or any answer thereto or any amendment to any of the above.
You understand and agree that before you take a dispute to arbitration under this Agreement, you must first contact our customer account representatives and give us an opportunity to resolve this dispute. Similarly, before TransUnion Interactive takes a dispute to arbitration, we must first attempt to resolve it by contacting you. If the dispute cannot be satisfactorily resolved within sixty days from the date you or TransUnion Interactive is notified by the other of a dispute, either party may then contact the AAA in writing and request arbitration of the dispute. Information about the arbitration process and the AAA's arbitration rules and its fees are available from the AAA on the Internet at http://www.adr.org.
The cost of any arbitration proceeding shall be divided as follows:
- If you initiate arbitration, you will be responsible for paying one half of the filing fee, or $125.00, whichever is less, when the demand for arbitration is made.
- If we initiate arbitration, we will be responsible for paying all arbitration costs.
- Regardless of who initiates the arbitration, you will not be responsible for any arbitration fees that exceed one half of the filing fee, or $125.00, whichever is less, or the fees that you would have incurred if the Claim had been brought in court. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if you believe the cost of arbitration may be too burdensome, you may seek a waiver of the filing fee under the applicable arbitration rules. If you seek, but not qualify for such waiver, we will consider a written request from you to advance all or part of the filing fee.
The arbitration will be based only on the written submissions of the parties and the documents submitted to the AAA relating to the dispute, unless either party requests that the arbitration be conducted using the AAA's telephonic, online, or in-person procedures (additional charges may apply for these procedures). Any arbitration proceeding will take place at a location within the federal judicial district that includes the most recent U.S. Mail address we have on file for you at the time the Claim is filed or at any other mutually acceptable location.
The arbitrator will be required to follow relevant law and applicable judicial precedent to arrive at a decision and shall be empowered to grant whatever relief would be available in court. Where authorized by applicable law, the arbitrator's award may include attorneys' fees and other expenses. You understand and agree that you and TransUnion Interactive are entering into this arbitration agreement in connection with a transaction involving interstate commerce. Accordingly, this arbitration agreement and any proceedings hereunder shall be governed by and enforceable under the Federal Arbitration Act ("FAA"), 9 U.S.C. §§1-16.
Any party to the arbitration proceeding may enter judgment upon the arbitration award in any court having jurisdiction over the arbitration award and may have that judgment enforced by any court having jurisdiction over that judgment. If this Arbitration Agreement is held to be invalid or otherwise unenforceable for any reason, it will be severed from the Agreement and the parties agree that exclusive jurisdiction and venue for any claims will be within the federal judicial district that includes the most recent U.S. Mail address we have on file for you at the time the Claim is filed or at any other mutually acceptable location.
BECAUSE YOUR PURCHASE AND USE OF A TRANSUNION INTERACTIVE PRODUCT OR USE OF THIS SITE REQUIRES THAT YOU CONSENT TO ARBITRATION OF YOUR CLAIMS OR DISPUTES, YOU WILL NOT HAVE THE RIGHT TO PURSUE YOUR CLAIM IN COURT OR BEFORE A JUDGE OR JURY OR TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION OR ANY OTHER COLLECTIVE OR REPRESENTIVE PROCEEDING. OTHER RIGHTS THAT EITHER PARTY WOULD HAVE IF THAT PARTY WENT TO COURT, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION THE RIGHT TO CONDUCT DISCOVERY OR TO APPEAL, MAY BE LIMITED OR UNAVAILABLE IN ARBITRATION.
The arbitrator's decision shall become final and binding after 30 days unless a party to the arbitration takes an appeal from the decision by making a written request to AAA. The appeal panel, which will consist of three arbitrators, will consider all factual and legal issues anew, will conduct the appeal in the same manner as the initial arbitration, and will make decisions based on the vote of the majority. We will advance any fees and costs required by AAA to commence any appeal. The appeal panel's decision shall be final and binding.
In the event of a conflict between the applicable arbitration rules and this Arbitration Agreement, this Arbitration Agreement shall govern. To the extent that the class action and collective action waivers contained herein are rendered invalid or unenforceable by applicable law as to any Claims, this Arbitration Agreement shall not apply to such Claims and thus we may elect to proceed exclusively in court. If any other provision of this Arbitration Agreement should be found invalid or unenforceable, such a determination shall not affect the enforceability of the remaining provisions, which shall remain and continue in full force and effect.
This Agreement constitutes the entire agreement between the parties hereto pertaining to the subject matter hereof, and any and all written or oral agreements heretofore existing between the parties hereto are null and void.
If any portion of this Agreement is deemed invalid or unenforceable by a court of competent jurisdiction, the remaining portions will remain valid, enforceable, and carried into effect, to the fullest extent permissible. Any rights not expressly granted herein are reserved.
You represent that you have read this Agreement and TransUnion Interactive's Privacy Statement, understand their terms, and agree and intend to be legally bound by them. You acknowledge that, in providing you access to and use of the Site and your membership, TransUnion Interactive has relied on your agreement to be bound by the terms of this Agreement.
