This Agreement may be updated from time to time. You should check the Website regularly for updates to this Agreement. Each time you order, access or use the Website and the Product, you signify your acceptance and agreement, without limitation or qualification, to be bound by the then current Agreement.
In order to become a member of ProtectMyID, you must (i) agree to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, (ii) be eighteen (18) years of age or older and provide your date of birth, (iii) provide a valid Social Security number, (iv) have and provide a valid land address within the United States; and (v) provide a valid email address and phone number. You will also be required to provide valid credit card information.
One feature of the Product is three bureau credit monitoring (monitoring credit files at three credit bureaus). Your order is conditioned upon successful enrollment in Experian's credit monitoring program. If Experian is not able to enroll you in its credit monitoring program, your order will not be processed and/or will be cancelled.
In the event that TransUnion® and/or Equifax®, are able to enroll you in their credit monitoring program, 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 credit monitoring program. While we attempt to enroll you in monitoring at all three bureaus, we do not control the enrollment process for the credit bureaus and we are not responsible for your enrollment at any of the three bureaus. ProtectMyID will notify you in the event that fewer than all three credit bureaus enroll you in credit monitoring. However, you will not receive a price reduction, discount or refund if you are enrolled in fewer than all three credit bureaus.
FEATURES OF PROTECTMYID
Alerts. This feature of the Product will send you an "alert" if (i) key changes are detected on your Experian, TransUnion, or Equifax credit reports; (ii) when the Internet Scan feature detects your Social Security number, debit card number, or credit card number on the Internet; or (iii) when the United States Postal Service® receives a request for a change of your residential address.
Three Bureau Credit Monitoring Alerts. This feature seeks to monitor key changes in your credit files at the three credit bureaus, and CIC requests that Experian, Equifax and TransUnion enroll you in their credit monitoring programs. You will only receive alerts for key changes made to the credit reports for which you are enrolled in credit monitoring. If you are not enrolled in credit monitoring at a credit bureau, you will not receive alerts to changes on those reports.
Internet Scan Alerts. The Internet Scan feature scans the Internet for your Social Security number and up to three debit or credit cards. We will not automatically scan the internet for your personal information. You must activate the Internet Scan feature in your Member Center. If you do not activate this feature, your social security number, debit card(s) or credit card(s) will not be monitored on the web. You must provide us with the information that you would like for us to monitor and scan for areas on the internet in areas known for criminal activity. We will send you an alert if your information is detected in the method chosen by you; either email, United States Postal Service, or sms mobile text message. The Internet Scan feature is provided by CIC and a third party vendor. Because the internet is vast, neither CIC nor its vendor guarantee that Internet Scan will detect all improper use of your information.
United States Postal Service® Change of Address Monitoring and Alerts. This feature checks for changes to your registered mailing address and alerts you if an address change is detected. The following trademarks are owned by the United States Postal Service: NCOA and United States Postal Service. NCOALink processing is performed by a non-exclusive licensee of the United States Postal Service.
Experian Credit Report. Upon successful enrollment, you will receive your Experian credit report. In some cases, you may receive an Experian Plus score for your Experian credit report. After 30 days, you will no longer be able to view the credit report that you receive upon enrollment. Additional credit reports and scores are available for purchase in your Member Center for an additional fee.
Lost Wallet. This feature allows you to contact Customer Care and work with our fraud resolution agents if your credit and debit cards are lost, stolen or misused without your authorization. Our fraud resolution agents will assist you in determining which documents are missing, pulling your credit report to determine which cards are affected by the loss or theft, placing a block on the cards, cancelling the cards, and getting new cards reissued in your name. In some cases, the card issuer may not allow our fraud resolution agents to cancel and reissue your credit or debit card without you on the call. If this happens, we will request that a block be placed on that card and notify you to contact your card issuer directly.
Fraud Resolution Assistance. There are certain steps that you must follow in order to obtain assistance from a fraud resolution agent. These steps include contacting a Customer Care at 1-866-960-6943. Additional information about requesting fraud resolution assistance can also be found in the My Protection Center of the Website.
If you contact us regarding fraud resolution, you are agreeing to permit CIC to order a copy of your credit report for any purpose relating to your request for assistance. "Identity Theft" means that your name, address, Social Security number, credit card, debit card or other personal identifying information was lost, stolen or was used without your knowledge or approval to commit fraud or other crimes.
THE FRAUD RESOLUTION FEATURE IS DESIGNED TO HELP YOU IN CONNECTION WITH RESOLUTION OF AN IDENTITY THEFT THIS PRODUCT IS PROVIDED TO ASSIST WITH RESOLUTION AND IS SEPARATE FROM ANY AND ALL PRECAUTIONS YOU SHOULD REASONABLY BE EXPECTED TO TAKE, INCLUDING PROTECTING YOUR ACCOUNT NAMES, PASSWORDS, SOCIAL SECURITY NUMBER AND OTHER PERSONALLY IDENTIFYING INFORMATION. CIC'S FRAUD RESOLUTION ASSISTANCE DOES NOT CONSTITUTE A POLICY OR CONTRACT OF INSURANCE AGAINST IDENTITY THEFT AND/OR THE CONSEQUENCES OF IDENTITY THEFT.
CIC, including its agents, independent contractors, assigns or other expressly authorized third party, reserves the right to make an independent investigation of the facts and circumstances related to any fraud resolution assistance request, including making contact by telephone, email, United States Postal Service or otherwise, to any service provider or any other person or entity that CIC deems necessary, in its sole and absolute discretion, regardless of whether you provide express authorization to make such contact for purposes of verifying and assisting you with your fraud resolution assistance request.
CIC reserves the right to request that you provide corroborating evidence of the unauthorized transaction, Identity Theft or other facts related to your fraud resolution assistance request, including signed affidavits, law enforcement or governmental agency reports, receipts of expenses, insurance declaration forms, or any other corroborating evidence that we may deem necessary and reasonable. Further, CIC reserves the right to refuse any fraud resolution assistance request or provide any fraud resolution assistance in the event you fail or refuse to provide us with any requested corroborating evidence related to a possible Identity Theft.
CIC reserves the right not to provide you with any fraud resolution assistance in the event CIC determines that you knew, or should reasonably have known, of an act of Identity Theft that commenced prior to your membership. If at any time you cancel your membership, CIC is no longer obligated to provide any additional fraud resolution assistance.
ENROLLMENT IN CHILDSECURESM
ChildSecure, where applicable, is an upgrade feature of the Product that you may purchase for an additional fee as set forth below. ChildSecure is available to online members only. We are not able to provide this product to members who receive their alerts via the United States Postal Service. If you are successfully enrolled in ChildSecure, credit monitoring alerts will be delivered to the email address that was provided to CIC when you enrolled. It is your responsibility to update your email address if it should change.
Your order of ChildSecure is conditioned upon your successful order of ProtectMyID™ in accordance with the terms and conditions set forth above. If Experian unable to enroll you in its credit monitoring program, your entire order, including any pending orders to monitor for the existence of credit reports of your minor children at Experian, will not be processed and/or cancelled and you will not receive alerts or monitoring of changes to your credit files or alerts or monitoring regarding the reports of your minor children.
Monitoring For Children. The monitoring that will be performed for your enrolled minor children is different than monitoring for persons over age eighteen (18). On a monthly basis, CIC will request an Experian credit report for each enrolled child. If Experian has a credit report for your child, CIC will notify you via email alert within twenty four (24) hours of CIC having received the report.
Enrollment of Minor Children in ChildSecure. You may enroll up to five (5) minor children for whom you are the parent or guardian by providing the required information and/or documentation including, but not limited to, a valid Social Security number and date of birth for each minor child. You may enroll additional minor children for whom you are the parent or guardian by contacting Customer Care at 1-866-960-6943. In certain circumstances, you may not be permitted to enroll children on-line. In such circumstances, you may enroll children by contacting Customer Care at 1-866-960-6943. Children that have reached the age of seventeen (17) years and nine (9) months are not eligible to be enrolled in ChildSecure.
Fraud Resolution. If you are requesting fraud resolution regarding a child enrolled in ChildSecure, you will be required to re-certify your status as parent or guardian, and provide documents requested by CIC to verify your status as parent or guardian, including, but not limited to, the child's Social Security card and birth certificate, valid proof of your identification, and proof of your residence.
Certification as Parent or Guardian of Children Enrolled in ChildSecure. We will provide information about a minor child only to the child's parent or guardian. You certify that you are the parent or guardian of each child whom you have name on the ChildSecure enrollment forms and that you understand and agree that enrollment may require CIC to obtain information about those children from a credit reporting company, and that any information about those children that you obtain from CIC will be used solely for the purpose of protecting against or preventing actual or potential fraud with respect the children whom you are enrolling or have enrolled in ChildSecure.
Automatic Unenrollment of Children Prior to 18th Birthday. Minor children enrolled by you in will be automatically unenrolled within seven (7) days before their eighteenth (18th) birthday, based on the date of birth information provided by you in the enrollment process. After that time period, you will not receive monitoring of any sort regarding that child.

However, you will be charged the fee for this feature at the end of your free trial period and for each month or year that you choose to continue to have this feature. If you choose to cancel the feature during your free trial, you will not be charged.

TERMINATION OR RESTRICTION OF ACCESS
You agree that CIC may, in its sole discretion and without notice or liability to you or any third party, immediately terminate your access to the Site and/or membership to our Product(s). Grounds for such termination shall include without limitation (a) breaches or violations of the law, Terms and Conditions, or other agreements, rules or guidelines, (b) requests by law enforcement or government agencies, (c) a request by you or a third party who pays for your membership to terminate your membership, (d) discontinuance or material modification of the Site (or any part thereof), (e) unexpected technical or security issues or problems.
You understand and agree that by submitting your order you are providing "written instructions" in accordance with the Fair Credit Reporting Act, as amended ("FCRA"), for CIC to obtain information from your personal credit profile from Experian or any other credit reporting company and to obtain information from the personal credit profile, if any, of any minor child whom you have enrolled in. You authorize CIC to access your credit profile (and those of any minor children whom you have enrolled in ) to verify your identity (or those of any minor children whom you have enrolled in) and to provide credit monitoring, credit reporting, credit scoring, identity monitoring, fraud resolution and card registry products. You also authorize CIC to access your credit profile (or those of any minor children whom you have enrolled in ) to perform other functions related to providing the product(s) that you have ordered or may order, including to verify your identity or any certification that you may be required to make.
The FCRA allows you to obtain a copy of all of the information in your consumer credit file disclosure from any consumer credit reporting company for a reasonable charge. The FCRA also states that individuals are entitled to receive a disclosure directly from the consumer credit reporting company free of charge under the following circumstances:
You have been denied credit, insurance or employment in the past sixty (60) days as a result of your report
You certify in writing that you are unemployed and intend to apply for employment in the sixty (60) day period beginning on the day you make the certification
You are a recipient of public welfare assistance
You have reason to believe that your file at the agency contains inaccurate information due to fraud
The FCRA also permits consumers to dispute inaccurate information in their credit report without charge. Accurate information cannot be changed. You do not have to purchase your credit report or other information from CIC to dispute inaccurate or incomplete information in your Experian file or to receive a copy of your Experian consumer disclosure.
The credit report you are requesting from CIC is not intended to constitute the disclosure of Experian information required by the FCRA or similar state laws. Experian's National Consumer Assistance Center provides a proprietary consumer disclosure that is different from the consumer credit report provided by CIC. This disclosure report must be obtained directly from Experian by going to www.experian.com/dispute, or by calling 888-EXPERIAN.
The FCRA allows consumers to get one free comprehensive disclosure of all of the information in their credit file from each of the three national credit reporting companies (Experian, Equifax, and TransUnion) once every twelve (12) months through a central source. Georgia residents can receive two disclosures per year. Although comprehensive, the credit reports from each of the three national credit reporting companies that are available from CIC may not have the same information as a credit report obtained directly from the three national credit reporting companies or through the central source. To request your free annual report under the FCRA, you must go to www.annualcreditreport.com, or call 877-322-8228. CIC's Products are not related to the free FCRA disclosure that you are or may be entitled to.
NOTICE OF PROSECUTION
For online customers, access to and use of password protected and/or secure areas of the Product Websites are restricted to authorized users only. Unauthorized individuals attempting to access these areas of the Product Websites may be subject to prosecution.
Failure to comply with the FCRA can result in state or federal enforcement actions, as well as private lawsuits. In addition, any person who knowingly and willfully obtains a consumer credit report or disclosure under false pretenses may face criminal prosecution.
