4. Service Plans and Features
The following terms and conditions apply to use of certain Service Plans and Features. In the event of a conflict or inconsistency between the terms of this Section 4 and any other term in this Agreement, the terms of this Section 4 shall control.
4.1 General Disclaimer and Acknowledgement.
(a) Disclaimer of Services. IDIQ is not a credit reporting agency, credit repair organization, credit repair company, credit repair service provider, broker or advisor. We do not provide legal, tax, financial, or credit management advice. The information or products we provide are not intended as such advice. We do not represent, and specifically disclaim, that the information we provide will actually or potentially improve or repair your credit profile or credit score. We advise you to seek the services of a competent and professionally licensed provider in connection with credit repair or credit improvement assistance.
(b) Plan Features. Service Plans are offered on a package basis and some Features within a Service Plan may not be appropriate or offered for all users. While users are not required to utilize every Feature available in a Service Plan, the decision to use or not use a Feature will not impact the price for the Service Plan.
(c) Utilization of Third-Party Providers. Some Features are provided by third-party providers. If you elect to use third-party provided Feature, you understand that IDIQ is not responsible for how such provider protects your personal information. IDIQ is not responsible for the information processing activities by third parties, including their efforts to protect and secure your personal information. For absolute clarity, once you release your personal information to a third party, there are no controls, security, or protections that IDIQ controls with that third party, and you will need to assure yourself that such third party will handle your Information properly as you desire. To that extent, the use of this Feature and the sharing of your Information is completely at your risk. Additional terms may apply to your enrollment in any third-party provided service.
4.2 Credit Services Generally. Credit Services may include, among other things, the ability to (i) access your credit report(s) from one or more credit bureaus, (ii) obtain Credit Scores (defined below) derived from your credit report data, (iii) obtain monitoring of selected credit data from your credit report and (iv) receive alerts regarding your credit information. Your enrollment in a Service Plan with Credit Services is dependent on the applicable credit bureau’s ability to find your credit data in their records using the personal information you provide to IDIQ and successfully authenticating your identity during enrollment. If the applicable credit bureau(s) cannot find some or all your credit data, then the Credit Services may be incomplete or, in some cases, not available. THIS NOTICE IS REQUIRED BY LAW. Read more at FTC.GOV. You have the right to a free credit report from AnnualCreditReort.com or 877-322-8228, the only authorized source under federal law. Take me to the authorized source.
4.4 Credit Scores. Credit Services may include access to your personal credit score(s) or for our business service plans, your business credit score(s) from a third-party provider such as FICO®, VantageScore® or others (each, a “Credit Score Provider”). Credit scores are available in the marketplace using many types of mathematical models. These models generally calculate a score based on information found in your personal credit report data file or for our business credit plans, your business credit report file at the date and time the report data is accessed (a “Credit Score”). IDIQ does not have its own model to determine your Credit Score, but, rather, obtains your Credit Score from Credit Score Providers. Each Credit Score Provider has its own proprietary model(s) for calculating your Credit Score and thus Credit Scores may differ based on the model(s) used. More information about the Credit Score Providers and your Credit Scores available in IDIQ’s Credit Services (such as FICO®, or VantageScore ®) can be found on our Website(s). When you use Offerings to access your Credit Score(s), you agree and understand that; (i) your Credit Scores may be stored and accessible for a limited time, (ii) your Credit Scores may not be available to you after you cancel your Subscription, and (iii) IDIQ is not responsible for the information, accuracy or content used to create your Credit Score.
4.5 Credit Monitoring. The Credit Monitoring feature generally monitors a subscriber’s credit bureau data files for key changes and alerts the subscriber to those changes. In some cases, you may need to manually activate this feature. If a monitored event occurs, IDIQ will attempt to electronically alert you by email and/or text. A more detailed report associated with the Credit Monitoring alert may be available in your User Account. By agreeing to these Terms, you acknowledge that not all changes will be monitored, including some that may involve the potential for fraudulent use of your identity or credit. The type of Credit Monitoring we provide to you may change from time to time.
4.6 Credit Score Simulations. Credit Score Credit Score Simulations are hypothetical; they do not predict or guarantee that your actual score will rise or drop to the simulated score, nor do they guarantee that you will be approved or rejected for credit by any financial institution. Actual results may differ. Entering data into the simulator does not affect your actual credit score.
4.7 Other Self-Help Features and Simulators. We make available certain interactive self-help tools (“Tools”) in some Service Plans, including, for example, “IQAlerts”, “Synthetic ID Theft”, “ScoreTracker”, and “ScoreCasterIQ™”. These Tools are provided by third parties not affiliated with IDIQ. The information displayed from these Tools is based on point-in-time data and may not necessarily be representative of recent occurrences such as bankruptcy, foreclosure, late payments, new accounts, or other matters which may potentially impact your Credit Score and the accuracy or outcome of Tools. Nor do these Tools consider your unique personal financial situation. All Tools results project hypothetical outcomes and do not predict, forecast, or guarantee any outcome.
4.8 Identity Protection Monitoring. Identity Protection Services may include one or more types of identity protection monitoring (“Protection Monitoring”). Depending on your Service Plan’s Features such Protection Monitoring may include monitoring of criminal records, dark web, social security number, change of address loan applications or other activities tied to your personal information that could signal a possibility of credit fraud or identity theft. In some cases, you may need to manually activate your Protection Monitoring Services. Protection Monitoring may be provided to you through third party providers. If a monitored event occurs, we will attempt to electronically alert you by email and/or text. A more detailed report associated with the alert may be available in your User Account. Notwithstanding any Protection Monitoring, by agreeing to these Service Terms, you acknowledge that IDIQ cannot monitor for all the possible ways your identity could be breached, and that Protection Monitoring cannot identify all the potential ways that your identity or credit could be fraudulently accessed or used. You further agree and acknowledge that the type(s) of Protection Monitoring we provide to you may change from time to time.
4.9 Identity Protection Insurance. Identity Protection Insurance covers for certain losses in accordance with the identity theft insurance coverage you purchase as part of a Service Plan. Not all Service Plans contain Identity Protection Insurance. The Insurance may also extend this coverage to some of your immediate family members up to the limit of the coverage. You may be able to add family members beyond the insurance limit at an additional cost. Identity theft insurance is provided solely through a licensed third-party insurer. All insurance service claims and specific insurance customer service will be provided through the third-party insurance provider. To file a claim, contact IDIQ customer service at the number provided on the applicable Website where you maintain your User Account. The customer service agent will provide you with contact information to the third-party insurance provider where you can file your claim. If your Plan includes identity theft insurance, you agree to such insurance coverage and that the premium for such insurance coverage will be paid by us on your behalf. You agree to receive notices of insurance changes electronically.
4.10 Identity Restoration Service Assistance. Your Service Plan may include access to an IDIQ Identity Theft Restoration Specialist and/or for a business credit plan a third-party business identity theft restoration specialist such as Experian® (“Identity Restoration Specialist”). The Identity Theft Restoration Specialist is available to answer questions about identity theft monitoring alerts and questions about handling identity theft events within the limits of the Service Plan you purchased. In some cases, your Service Plan may offer the option for you to provide IDIQ with a Limited Power of Attorney (“LPOA”) to authorize and permit IDIQ and your assigned Identity Restoration Specialist to execute routine related identity restoration tasks that may be associated with an identity theft event (“Event”) such as contacting your creditors, providing notification of your Event, or requesting the issuance of a new credit card to you. If your Service Plan includes Services pursuant to an LPOA you will be required to enter into other agreements in connection with the LPOA and its uses. Creditors, banks, and other entities we attempt to contact in pursuant to an LPOA on your behalf may have their own policy and may not recognize or accept the LPOA. In such cases, IDIQ will be unable to perform any LPOA related Services on your behalf with such third party. YOU ARE NOT REQUIRED TO UTILIZE AN LPOA AS PART OF OUR IDENTITY RESTORATION SERVICES. See the LPOA agreement for further details, disclosures, and instructions as available.
4.11 Bitdefender® Cybersecurity. Bitdefender is a software security which, if included in your Service Plan, may include anti-virus software, internet security software, endpoint security software, and other cybersecurity products and services. To access, download and use this Feature, you will be required to agree to a separate “end user license agreement”. If you do not agree to end user license agreement, you will not be able to use this Feature.
4.12 Data Breach Services. Some benefits afforded under our DataBreachIQ Service Plans, including security awareness training, cyber security coverage, notification services, call-center services, and contracted services, are provided by third parties. Insurance is provided solely through a licensed third-party insurer. All insurance service claims, and specific insurance customer service will be provided through the third-party insurance provider.
4.13 Business Credit Plans. For members who own a business, IDIQ may make available one or more business credit related features within your personal active IDIQ Service Plan. The Business Credit Plan may consist of but is not limited to business credit reports from one or more sources, business credit scores from or more sources, business credit monitoring and more. Features commonly available in non-business plans may not be available or may not apply to Business Credit Plans. Businesses do not have the same rights as individuals under the Fair Credit Reporting Act.
4.14 Family Protection & Children’s Services. Features which provide services for children under the age of eighteen (“Children’s Features”) require enrollment by the Minor’s parent or legal guardian. Minors are not permitted to enroll in, subscribe to, or otherwise use any of IDIQ’s Offerings. To enroll in Children’s Features and receive details on a child’s information, the legal guardian must provide guardianship. Passing the one-time guardianship process is contingent on the guardian supplying a federal or court produced document proving such relationship. The legal guardian will receive an active child’s reports, alerts, and notifications. A child is no longer considered a minor when the child reaches his/her eighteenth (18th) birthday and is no longer eligible for monitoring services provided by IDIQ.
4.15 Third-Party Account Information. IDIQ partners with companies such as eCredable to allow you to import your account information so that we may report your rental and/or utility payments to a credit reporting agency(ies). You understand and agree that if you participate, IDIQ may share the information that you provide including, but not limited to, your full name, birth date, address, telephone number, and social security number with our partners so that they may provide us with your accounts and financial information needed to report your payments to a credit reporting agency(ies).
5. Fees and Payment
5.1 Fees for Paid Services. Some of our Offerings, including enrolling in our Service Plans, require the payment of a fee (“Paid Services”) billed in advance on a recurring, periodic basis (“Subscriptions”) or an up-front payment on a one-time basis. Subscriptions are billed typically monthly or annually, depending on what subscription plan you select when purchasing a Subscription. Payment will be charged to your chosen payment method at confirmation of purchase and at the start of every new billing cycle. IDIQ reserves the right to change its fees for Paid Services from time to time as permitted by law. Current fee information for Paid Services can be found on the applicable Websites where the Paid Services are offered. In addition to posting on the Websites, you will be notified prior to any fee increase for a Subscription. Prior to imposition of any fee increase on a Subscription you will have up to sixty (60) days elect to either downgrade your Service Plan or cancel your Subscription.
5.2 Payment Information & Taxes. All information that you provide in connection with a purchase or monetary transaction interaction with IDIQ must be accurate, complete, and current. You agree to pay all charges incurred by users of your credit card, debit card, or other payment method used in connection with a purchase or monetary transaction interaction with us at the prices in effect when such charges are incurred. You will pay any applicable taxes, if any, relating to any such purchases, licenses, royalties, transactions, or other monetary transaction interactions. If your credit card, debit card, or other payment method changes, or if you prefer to use an alternate payment method, then you are responsible for updating the information by visiting your User Account settings or contacting IDIQ customer service.

5.3 Automatic Renewal. To ensure uninterrupted service, Subscriptions are automatically renewed. This means that unless you cancel a Subscription before the end of the applicable subscription period, it will automatically renew, and you authorize us to use any payment mechanism we have on record for you or invoice you (in which case payment is due within 15 days) to collect the then-applicable subscription fee as well as any taxes. If you’ve purchased access to multiple services, you may have multiple renewal dates. By default, your Subscriptions will be renewed for the same interval as your original subscription period (for example, a 12-month subscription will be renewed for an additional 12 months). The date for the automatic renewal is based on the date of the original purchase and cannot be changed. You can manage your Subscriptions (including automatic renewal settings) for Paid Services by visiting your User Account settings or contacting IDIQ customer service.
5.4 Cancelling Automatic Renewal. If you reside in a state where an online cancellation option is required, you can manage and cancel your Subscription through your User Account. You may also manage and cancel your Subscription by contacting our customer service representatives by calling us at the phone numbers set forth in Section 13.11 for the Site associated with your Subscription. If eligible to cancel a Subscription online, go to your User Account settings on the Website associated with the applicable Subscription, click on the Subscription you want to cancel, then follow the instructions to cancel the Subscription or turn off auto-renew. If auto-renew is successfully turned off, you’ll see the date on which your subscription expires. If you have multiple Subscriptions to cancel, repeat this process for each Subscription.
5.5 Billing. If you elect to use Paid Services, you agree to the pricing and payment listed for the Service Plan or Feature which we may update from time to time. IDIQ may add new services for additional fees and charges, or amend fees and charges for existing Offerings, at any time in its sole discretion, however any price changes or changes to your Subscriptions will apply no earlier than 30 days following notice to you.
5.6 Cancellation. You may cancel your Paid Services at any time using any of the following methods by (a) contacting IDIQ’s customer service by phone during regular business hours using the phone number published in the applicable Paid Service; or (b) if you reside in a state where an online cancellation option is required, clicking the “cancel button” found in your User Account. Cancellation via phone may require us to verify your identity. Once your Paid Service has been cancelled, some Features associated with the cancelled Service Plan, such as identity protection monitoring, credit monitoring and credit reports, will immediately be discontinued. You may in some cases still have access to login to the User Account to use certain no cost Features or to make future purchases. PLEASE NOTE, CANCELLATION OF A SERVICE PLAN DOES NOT CANCEL YOUR WRITTEN FCRA AUTHORIZATION FOR IDIQ TO CONTINUE TO ACCESS YOUR CREDIT INFORMATION IN ACCORDANCE WITH THESE SERVICE TERMS. Accordingly, we may, at our sole discretion, continue to monitor your credit (at no additional fee to you) and we may alert you if a suspicious event occurs and/or notify you of special offers and opportunities that may be of interest to you arising from such credit monitoring.
5.7 No Refunds. You may cancel your IDIQ account at any time; however, there are no refunds for cancellation.

5.8 Free Trials. IDIQ offers free trials for certain Paid Services. IDIQ reserves the right to set eligibility requirements for free trials. At the end of your free trial period, we will charge the applicable subscription fee for the next billing cycle to your nominated payment method, unless you cancel prior to the end of the trial period.
5.9 Group/Employee Discount Plans. In some cases, Paid Services may be paid directly by your Group or employer. Your Group or employer may be responsible to collect Fees from you, if applicable.

12. Dispute Resolution & Arbitration
12.1 Governing Law. These Terms and the Agreement shall be governed by the laws of the State of California without regard to its conflict of laws provisions, but the terms and procedure of arbitration are governed by the Federal Arbitration Act.
43454 Business Park Drive, Temecula CA 92590
Notice should include both the mailing address and email address you would like IDIQ to use to contact you. Notice should describe the nature and basis of the claim or dispute and set forth the specific amount of damages or other relief sought.
12.3 Binding Arbitration.
(a) If the parties do not reach an agreed-upon solution within a period of 30 days from the time informal dispute resolution begins under the Initial Dispute Resolution provision set forth in Section 12.2, then either party may initiate binding arbitration as the sole means to resolve claims, subject to the terms set forth below. Specifically, you agree that any and all claims arising from, out of, or relating to this Agreement (including the interpretation, applicability, enforceability, formation, performance, and breach of this Agreement), the parties’ relationship with each other, and/or any service or product provided by IDIA shall be subject to binding arbitration under the Federal Arbitration Act (“FAA”). This includes claims based on contract, tort, equity, statute, or otherwise, as well as claims regarding the scope and enforceability of this provision. It includes all claims by or against you, IDIQ, and others providing or receiving any product or service related to this Agreement or your account with IDIQ. However, at the election of any party, a court of competent jurisdiction may adjudicate any request for injunctive relief, but all other claims will first be decided by arbitration.
(b) A single arbitrator shall decide all claims and shall render a final, written decision. The arbitration shall be administered by JAMS. Consistent with the FAA, the appropriate JAMS rules shall apply, as determined by the arbitrator. The JAMS Rules and Forms are available online at www.jamsadr.com.The arbitrator’s award shall be in writing, final, and binding on the parties and may be entered as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction.
(c) Payment of all filing, administration and arbitrator fees will be governed by the JAMS Rules. You may be required to pay JAMS’ initial filing fee, but IDIQ will reimburse you for this filing fee at the conclusion of the arbitration to the extent it exceeded the fee for filing a complaint in a federal or state court in your county of residence or in Riverside County, CA.
(d) The parties understand that, absent this mandatory provision, they would have the right to sue in court and have a jury trial. They further understand that, in some instances, the costs of arbitration could exceed the costs of litigation and the right to discovery may be more limited in arbitration than in court.
12.4 Class Action Waiver. The parties further agree that any arbitration shall be conducted in their individual capacities only and not as a class action or other representative action, and the parties expressly waive their right to file a class action or seek relief on a class basis. YOU AND IDIQ AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN AN INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. If there is a final judicial determination that applicable law precludes enforcement of this Section’s limitations as to a particular remedy, then that remedy (and only that remedy) must be severed from the arbitration and may be sought in court. The parties agree, however, that any adjudication of remedies not subject to arbitration shall be stayed pending the outcome of any arbitrable claims and remedies.
12.5 Exception: Litigation of Intellectual Property and Small Claims Court Claims. Notwithstanding the parties’ decision to resolve all disputes through arbitration, either party may bring an action in state or federal court to protect its intellectual property rights (where “intellectual property rights” means patents, copyrights, moral rights, trademarks, and trade secrets, but not privacy or publicity rights), except that the determination of the intellectual property rights in Feedback shall not be exempt from arbitration. Either party may also elect to have disputes or claims resolved in a small claims court for claims within the scope of that court’s jurisdiction. Either party may also seek a declaratory judgment or other equitable relief in a court of competent jurisdiction regarding whether a party’s claims are time-barred or may be brought in small claims court in your state and county of residence. Seeking such relief shall not waive a party’s right to arbitration under this Agreement.
12.6 30-Day Right to Opt Out. You have the right to opt-out and not be bound by the arbitration and class action waiver provisions set forth above by sending written notice of its decision to opt-out to the following address: IDIQ, Attn: Legal, 43454 Business Park Drive, Temecula CA 92590. The notice must be sent within 30 days of your assent to these Terms. Otherwise, you shall be bound to arbitrate disputes in accordance with the terms of this Section. If you opt-out of these arbitration provisions, IDIQ also will not be bound by them.
12.7 Changes to this Section. IDIQ will provide 30 days’ notice of any changes to this Section 11; changes will become effective on the 30th day. If you continue to use the IDIQ Services after the 30th day, you agree that any unfiled claims of which IDIQ does not have actual notice are subject to the revised clause.
12.8 Claims Outside of Arbitration. For any dispute not subject to arbitration, you and IDIQ agree to submit to the personal and exclusive jurisdiction of and venue in the federal and state courts located in Riverside County, California. You further agree to accept service of process by mail, and hereby waive all jurisdictional and venue defenses otherwise available.

13.2 Governing Law. Except as governed by the federal laws of the United States, our Agreement is governed by the laws of the State of California, excluding conflicts of law provisions.
13.3 Waiver. Except as otherwise set forth in these Terms, no failure to exercise, or delay in exercising, any right, remedy, power, or privilege arising from these Terms shall operate or be construed as a waiver thereof; nor shall any single or partial exercise of any right, remedy, power, or privilege hereunder preclude any other or further exercise thereof or the exercise of any other right, remedy, power, or privilege.
13.4 Assignment. You may not assign any rights or obligations it has under our Agreement without IDIQ’s prior written consent. These Terms are binding upon and inure to the benefit of the parties and their respective successors and assigns.
13.5 Severability. If any part or provision of these Terms is declared fully or partially invalid, unlawful or unenforceable by a court of competent jurisdiction, the remainder of the part or provision and the Terms will remain in full force and effect, if the essential terms and conditions of these Terms for each party remain valid, binding and enforceable.
13.6 Relationship of the Parties. These Terms will not establish any partnership, joint venture, employment, franchise, or agency relationship between you and IDIQ. Neither you nor IDIQ will have the power to bind the other or incur obligations on the other’s behalf without the other’s prior written consent, except as otherwise expressly provided herein.
13.7 Trade Restrictions. You must not access or use the IDIQ Services: (i) in or relating to any country or territory that is the subject or target of comprehensive trade or economic sanctions imposed by the U.S. government (“Sanctions”) (currently, Cuba, Iran, North Korea, Syria, the Crimea region of Ukraine, and the Donetsk People’s Republic or Luhansk People’s Republic); (ii) for the benefit or on behalf of any person listed in any Sanctions-related list of designated persons maintained by the Office of Foreign Assets Control of the U.S. Department of the Treasury (“OFAC”) or the U.S. Department of State (including OFAC’s List of Specially Designated Nationals and Blocked Persons), or any person owned 50 percent or more by such person; or (iii) otherwise in violation of any U.S. Sanction, embargo, prohibition or restriction. In addition, you must comply with all applicable laws and regulations governing the export, re-export and transfer of the IDIQ Services and you are responsible for obtaining any required export or import authorizations.
13.8 Force Majeure. Neither party will be liable to the other for any delay or failure to perform any obligation under these Terms if the delay or failure is due to events which are beyond the reasonable control of such party, such as a strike, blockade, war, act of terrorism, pandemic, riot, natural disaster, failure or diminishment of power or telecommunications or data networks or services, or refusal of a license by a government agency.
