You will have the ability to choose what Information may be shared, to whom and the ability to discontinue such access to those third parties.
If you elect to use this Feature, you understand that IDIQ is not responsible for how such a third party protects the Information you release. This may include, but is not limited, to how they use it, how they store it, what security precautions they use and how they may destroy it. For absolute clarity, once you release your 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.
Communication Authorization and Methods
To deliver our Services to you, we and our contractors and/or authorized third parties may need to communicate with you in a variety of ways, including telephone, email, postal mail or text (“Methods”). In some cases, when a telephone is used, we may use an automated phone dialer and you acknowledge that by providing your cell phone number and other information upon Enrollment or otherwise to IDIQ that you expressly authorize such Methods. Because all Communications to you are provided in some way through a third-party provider (such as internet and cell service providers), we cannot guarantee and are not responsible to assure that any communications are delivered in a timely, complete and secure manner or at all.
By Enrolling in our Services, you agree that IDIQ and its employees, contractors or authorized third parties may contact you by using any of the Methods described above. The frequency of communications will vary based on the Service Plan you purchase and the events that may occur with your account, credit or identity information requiring communications such as alerts.
You also agree to allow us to communicate with you using the Methods described above after you cancel your Service. Such communications may include but are not limited to; (a) ongoing educational information related to our Services, (b) special offers to renew or purchase IDIQ Services, or (c) special third party offers at IDIQ’s sole discretion, credit and/or identity monitoring alerts if a suspicious event occurs.
You agree to maintain your current contact information in your account through the Member Site or by calling IDIQ customer service. You acknowledge that IDIQ has no liability to you; (a) if contact information you have provided is not accurate, (b) if any third-party communication services you obtain are not working correctly or at all, (c) for third-party party charges you may incur that are associated with communications we send to you (such as text message fees). This includes, but is not limited to, your third-party communications providers for data, mobile phone or land phone line plans. IDIQ has no responsibility for text message fees and roaming charges assessed to you through your phone provider. You may have the ability to opt-out of certain communication Methods, such as texting, by changing your preferences at the Member Site or by calling IDIQ customer service.

Purchasing Third Party Offerings is an independent decision you can make at your own risk. If you click a link or visit a website associated with a Third Party Offering, you acknowledge and agree that the control and security of the Third Party’s website is not managed or controlled by IDIQ and is not IDIQ’s responsibility.

Disclaimer and Limitation of Liability
IDIQ is not a credit counseling service and does not promise to help you obtain a loan or improve your credit report, history, or rating. The terms of this section shall survive any termination, cancellation, or expiration of this Agreement. All Services, Content, tools and calculators are provided on an “as is” or “as available” basis. IDIQ and its respective Third Party suppliers expressly disclaim all warranties, guaranties and conditions of any kind whether express or implied, including but not limited to, the implied warranties of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, title or noninfringement.

IDIQ and its respective suppliers make no warranty that; (a) the Services and Content are accurate, timely, uninterrupted or error-free; and (b) the results that may be obtained from the use of the Services or Content will be reliable.
You understand and agree that IDIQ and its respective suppliers will not be liable for any direct, indirect, incidental, special, consequential or exemplary damages resulting from or in any way arising out of your access to, use, or inability to use the Websites, Services, membership benefits or Content, or from your access to, use, inability to use, or reliance upon any linked Third Party website, even if IDIQ or its respective suppliers have been advised of the possibility of those damages. Some jurisdictions either do not allow or place restrictions upon the exclusion or limitation of damages in certain types of agreements, and in these jurisdictions, the aforementioned limitation on liability shall be enforced to the maximum degree permitted by applicable law. If, notwithstanding the above, liability is imposed upon IDIQ, then you agree that any such liability, regardless of the nature of the legal or equitable claim, shall not exceed the amount paid by you to IDIQ for the Service(s) you purchase from IDIQ.
In addition, the following limit of liability applies to all Services where the supplier is a credit reporting agency (a “CRA”) . Neither IDIQ, any CRA or any their respective affiliates shall have any liability to you as an agent in obtaining copies of your personal credit report, credit alert report, quarterly update, or Credit Score. Neither IDIQ, any CRA nor any of their respective affiliates or credit information subcontractors make any warranty, express or implied, for the accuracy of the information contained in or provided in conjunction with the Services you may be enrolled in. Neither IDIQ, CRAs nor any of their respective affiliates assume any liability for damages, direct or indirect, consequential or incidental, in connection with the performance of the services of your request, use or attempted use of the Servicers. Neither IDIQ, CRAs nor any of their respective affiliates or credit information subcontractors are responsible for negative factual information contained in any reports you receive or as part of the Service. The aggregate liability of all such parties to you in any event is limited to the amount which you have paid IDIQ for your Services.
By agreeing to these Service Terms, you indemnify and hold IDIQ, its officers, directors, employees, contractors, agents, subsidiaries, joint ventures, licensees, and Third-Parties harmless from any claim or demand including reasonable attorney fees made by any third-party arising out of your breach of these Service Terms or your violation of any law or regulation or the rights of any third-party.
IDIQ controls and operates our Services and Websites from our headquarters in the United States of America.

Binding Arbitration and Class Action Waiver
PLEASE READ THIS CAREFULLY, IT AFFECTS YOUR RIGHTS
IDIQ believes that any question or concern you have with the IDIQ Services or this Agreement can be resolved by calling or otherwise contacting our customer service department as noted above. However, if you feel other relief is needed, then Arbitration is more informal than a lawsuit in court. Arbitration uses a neutral arbitrator instead of a judge or jury, allows for more limited discovery than in court, and is subject to very limited review by courts. Arbitrators can award much of the same damages and relief that a court can award. You agree that the U.S. Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of this arbitration provision, and that you and IDIQ are each waiving the right to a trial by jury or to participate in a class action. This arbitration provision shall survive termination of your Services.
Notice of Claim – If you elect to seek arbitration, you must first send a certified written notice of your claim (“Notice of Claim”) to IDIQ addressed as follows: IDIQ, Attn: Human and Business Services, 43454 Business Park Drive, Temecula CA 92590 and should be prominently captioned “NOTICE OF CLAIM.” The Notice of Claim should include both the mailing address and email address you would like IDIQ to use to contact you. If IDIQ elects to seek arbitration, it will send, by certified mail, a written Notice of Claim to your billing address on file in your membership. A Notice of Claim, whether sent by you or by IDIQ, must (a) describe the nature and basis of the claim or dispute; (b) set forth the specific amount of damages or other relief sought (“Demand”); and (c) whether you reject any subsequent modification of this Section by IDIQ.
Arbitration Proceedings – If we do not reach an agreement to resolve the claim within thirty (30) days after the Notice of Claim is received, you or IDIQ may commence an arbitration proceeding. You may download or copy a form of notice and a form to initiate arbitration at www.adr.org. The arbitration will be governed by the Consumer or Commercial Arbitration Rules, as appropriate, of the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) (collectively, the “AAA Rules”) and will be administered by the AAA. The AAA Rules and Forms are available online at www.adr.org. All issues are for the arbitrator to decide, including issues relating to the scope and enforceability of this arbitration provision. The arbitrator shall issue a reasoned written decision sufficient to explain the essential findings and conclusions on which the award is based.
Arbitration Fees – Payment of all filing, administration and arbitrator fees will be governed by the AAA Rules. You are required to pay AAA’s 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 Clark County, NV. IDIQ will not seek to recover the administration and arbitrator fees we are responsible for paying under the AAA Rules unless the arbitrator finds that either the substance of your claim or the relief sought in your Demand for Arbitration was frivolous or was brought for an improper purpose (as measured by the standards set forth in Federal Rule of Civil Procedure).
Class Action Waiver – YOU AND IDIQ AGREE THAT WE EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN OUR RESPECTIVE INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. Unless both you and IDIQ agree otherwise, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person’s claims with your claims and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding. If this specific provision is found to be unenforceable, then the entirety of this arbitration section shall be null and void.
Except as governed by the federal laws of the United States these Service Terms and Services provided hereunder shall be governed by the laws of the State of Nevada, without regard to any laws that would direct the choice of other states laws.
Electronic Signature and Acceptance of Agreement
