Additional Terms for Aura Identity

Effective: January 21, 2021

These additional Terms apply to the Aura Identity feature offered to you as an existing Hotspot Shield customer and govern and restrict your use of the Identity Theft Protection services and all related software provided by Intersections Inc. d/b/a Aura or its affiliates, with or without a subscription (the “Services”). These Terms supplement, are subject to, and are incorporated into the Hotspot Shield Terms of Service at https://www.hotspotshield.com/terms/. Capitalized terms that are otherwise undefined in these Terms have the meanings given to them in the Hotspot Shield Terms of Service.

YOUR USE OF AND/OR REGISTRATION FOR THE SERVICES CONSTITUTES YOUR AGREEMENT TO THE FOLLOWING TERMS OF USE. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE, DO NOT USE OR REGISTER FOR ANY OF THE SERVICES. BY SUBMITTING YOUR ORDER, ACCESSING OR USING THE SERVICES, OR DOWNLOADING ANY SOFTWARE PROVIDED AS PART OF THE SERVICES, YOU ARE ACKNOWLEDGING THAT YOU HAVE READ OUR PRIVACY POLICY AND AGREE TO BE BOUND BY IT.

1. Defined Terms

As used in these Terms, the following words shall have the following meanings. “Aura” includes “Intersections,” “Aura”; Aura Company”; “we”; “us”; and/or variations such as “our.” “Services” includes the products, services and software that you order, receive or access through the Site or otherwise through the Services.

2. Use of the Services

You may not use the Services unless you are above the age of majority. Any information you provide to us must be true, accurate, current, and complete. You shall not use the Services for any illegal purpose and you shall abide by all applicable local, state, provincial, territorial, national, and international laws and regulations. The Services are made available for your personal use only, and not for commercial purposes. You are solely responsible for any reliance on, or any other use you make of, the Services. We do not provide the Services, or any advice or assistance, for the purpose of improving your credit report, credit history or credit rating. Please note that use of some Services may require your express agreement to additional terms from third parties not associated with Aura, and in such event, you may be required to provide information to these third-party service providers. Aura is not responsible for your agreement to or reliance upon any such terms.

In addition, we will attempt to provide you with features of the Services that are available to you or that you elect to activate. If, for any reason, we are unable to activate a feature of the Services we may notify you via the Services and/or by email at the email address associated with your account, except where our inability to activate a feature of the Services was based on an action you elected not to take or made in error. Further, prior to the delivery of information relevant to certain alerts, we will require you to authenticate certain aspects of your identity and credit information. Absent your request to terminate, your inability to access any feature of the Services or the inability to authenticate your identity or credit information may not result in termination of the Services or suspension of billing unless otherwise terminated by Aura in our sole discretion.

You agree that You will use the Services only for your own behalf. You will be responsible for all use of your membership number and must notify Aura immediately of any unauthorized use of your membership number, or the theft or misplacement of your membership number. You understand that by enrolling in the Services, You are providing "written instructions" in accordance with the federal Fair Credit Reporting Act, as amended ("FCRA"), for Aura and its service providers to obtain information from your personal credit profile from Experian, Equifax, and Transunion, the three major credit reporting agencies. You authorize Aura and its service providers to use your Social Security number to access your personal credit profile, to verify your identity, and to provide credit monitoring, reporting and scoring products.

3. Financial Transaction Monitoring.

If you choose to activate our financial transaction monitoring Services (“Transaction Monitoring”), you must provide us (without limitation) the applicable account credentials for your credit, commerce, banking, investment, and other eligible account(s) (“Transaction Account Credentials”). By activating the Transaction Monitoring and providing us with your Transaction Account Credentials, you hereby grant Aura the express authorization to access your account(s) as your agent in fact and further grant to Aura a non-exclusive, fully-paid, perpetual, royalty-free, license to use, reproduce, distribute, and/or transfer any data or account information obtained for the sole purpose of monitoring your transactions within the corresponding accounts. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Aura may prepare, develop, and retain aggregated and/or anonymized data from your account for its own internal use. Should you change your account information (including your Transaction Account Credentials with any of your third-party providers) you must also update that account information in our system in order for Aura to continue to provide Transaction Monitoring to that respective account. You hereby acknowledge and understand that our network(s), products, and/or services are limited to the account information provided by you and the third party providers, and we may in certain limited circumstances experience delays and/or failures to process or identify fraudulent transactions. You hereby acknowledge and agree to monitor your accounts and transactions and further expressly recognize that you should not solely rely on alerts from Aura for accuracy or delivery in all cases.

4. Limited Software License

One aspect of the Services in particular is the Safe Browsing extension (the “Software”), which provides a more secure method of browsing the Internet, works with supported browsers to provide you with certain information about the web sites you visit and links your browsing activity to your Site profile. In addition to the other provisions in these Terms of Use, the following provisions apply specifically to the Software: Conditioned on your continued compliance with these Terms of Use and your subscription to the Software, these Terms of Use provide you with a revocable, limited, non-exclusive, non-transferable license to use the Software for personal use only and only for the duration of the Service Period. The “Service Period” shall begin on the date of your initial activation of the Software, and shall last until the expiration or earlier termination of this License. The Software is “in use” on a computer, mobile device, or tablet when it is loaded into the temporary memory (i.e., RAM) or installed into the permanent memory (e.g., hard disk, CD-ROM, or other storage device) of that computer, mobile device, or tablet.

Any rights granted hereby may not be sublicensed, leased, sold, transferred or assigned by you to any third party. You may not make any copy of, or allow access to, the Software other than as expressly permitted in these Terms of Use and as indicated at download. You may use the Software on a network only if you have a valid license for each copy on each computer on the network. You may not make any copies of that Software or allow anyone or any other device or instrumentality to access or use that Software. You may not use a previous version or copy of the Software after you have received an upgraded version as a replacement of the prior version. Upon upgrading the Software, all copies of the prior version must be destroyed.

NOTE: THIS LICENSE TO THE SOFTWARE SHALL TERMINATE UPON THE EARLIER OF: (i) YOUR FAILURE TO COMPLY WITH ANY TERM OF THIS LICENSE; (ii) THE RETURN, DESTRUCTION, OR DELETION OF ALL COPIES OF THE SOFTWARE IN YOUR POSSESSION; OR (iii) THE DATE UPON WHICH AURA POSTS, ANNOUNCES OR PROVIDES ANY OTHER NOTICE THAT IT HAS DECIDED, IN ITS SOLE DISCRETION, TO DISCONTINUE OFFERING THE SOFTWARE. Aura's rights and your obligations shall survive the expiration or earlier termination of this license. Upon expiration or termination, you shall destroy or return to Aura all copies of the Software, or any portion thereof and you will no longer have authorization to use the Software. When this license is terminated and/or the subscription is cancelled, you may no longer have access to data and other material you have stored in connection with the Software.

5. Fees and Charges; Automatic Renewals

You authorize us to charge your credit card or other designated account for the Services. If you contract to use the Services, your membership will be automatically renewed and you will be billed the same amount (plus applicable tax) at the end of the initial term (and each subsequent term, as applicable), until your membership is cancelled by you or terminated by Aura. You may cancel your subscription to any or all Services without fee or penalty at any time by emailing us at [email protected].

In the event you enroll in a free trial of the Service, such free trial shall be available only if you are a first-time customer of the Service. Only one (1) free trial may be redeemed per person in a twelve (12) month period. Aura hereby reserves the right to refuse registration in our Services for any reason.

6. Changes to Services, Fees or Terms; Termination

At any time without liability to you, we may prospectively modify these Terms of Use, or the fees for any Services, or modify or cancel any Services. From time to time, we may add or discontinue material features to or from the Services. Any changes will be effective upon posting the revised version of these Terms of Use (or such later effective date as may be indicated therein). If in our sole discretion we deem a revision to these Terms of Use to be material, we will notify you via the Services and/or by email to the email address associated with your account. Notice of other changes may be provided via the Site. Therefore, we encourage you to check the date of these Terms of Use whenever you visit the Site to see if these Terms have been updated. Your continued access or use of any portion of the Service constitutes your acceptance of such changes. If you don't agree to any of the changes, we're not obligated to continue providing the Service, and you must cancel and stop using the Service.

We reserve the right to terminate your Identity Protection services with or without cause at any time and for any reason or for no reason. You agree that any termination of your access to any Services may be effected without prior notice. You may terminate your account at any time by emailing us at [email protected]. Once your account has expired or been terminated for any reason, you will have no further right or access to use the deactivated Services, and you immediately shall cease using and destroy all copies of any Software. You may not reverse engineer, decompile, or disassemble the Software, except to the extent the foregoing restriction is expressly prohibited by applicable law. You may not remove or destroy any copyright notices or other proprietary markings. You may not modify or adapt the Software, merge the Software into another program or create derivative works based on the Software. You may not use, copy, rent, lease, lend, sell or distribute the Software without Licensor's authorization, except that you may make one (1) copy of the Software for archival or back-up purposes only.

Please note that your use of the Software is only one part of a conscientious and comprehensive system to decrease the risk of misappropriation of your information by third parties.

16. Dispute Resolution by Binding Arbitration

MOST CUSTOMER CONCERNS CAN BE RESOLVED QUICKLY AND TO THE CUSTOMER'S SATISFACTION BY CALLING CUSTOMER SERVICE AT 855-443-7748. IN THE UNLIKELY EVENT THAT CUSTOMER SERVICE IS UNABLE TO RESOLVE A COMPLAINT YOU MAY HAVE WITH AURA OR AURA’S SERVICE PROVIDER(S) TO YOUR SATISFACTION (OR IF AURA AND/OR AURA’S SERVICE PROVIDER(S) HAVE NOT BEEN ABLE TO RESOLVE A DISPUTE WITH YOU AFTER ATTEMPTING TO DO SO INFORMALLY), YOU, ON THE ONE HAND, AND AURA AND/OR AURA’S SERVICE PROVIDER(S), ON THE OTHER, EACH AGREE TO RESOLVE THOSE DISPUTES THROUGH BINDING ARBITRATION OR SMALL CLAIMS COURT INSTEAD OF IN COURTS OF GENERAL JURISDICTION TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW. 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 THE SAME DAMAGES AND RELIEF THAT A COURT CAN AWARD. ANY ARBITRATION UNDER THIS AGREEMENT WILL TAKE PLACE ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS; CLASS ARBITRATIONS AND CLASS ACTIONS ARE NOT PERMITTED. WE WILL PAY ALL COSTS OF ARBITRATION, NO MATTER WHO WINS, SO LONG AS YOUR CLAIM IS NOT FRIVOLOUS. HOWEVER, IN ARBITRATION, YOU, ON THE ONE HAND, AND AURA AND/OR AURA’S SERVICE PROVIDER(S), ON THE OTHER, WOULD BE ENTITLED TO RECOVER ATTORNEYS’ FEES FROM EACH OTHER PARTY TO THE SAME EXTENT AS YOU AND THEY WOULD BE IN COURT.

You, on the one hand, and Aura and/or Aura’s service provider(s), on the other, agree that any claim or dispute ("Claim") between us shall, at the election of any one of us, be resolved by binding arbitration administered by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) under its rules for consumer arbitrations. It is the parties' intent that this arbitration provision be construed broadly, including that this arbitration agreement includes any Claims by You against Aura or Aura’s service provider(s) as well as their respective corporate affiliates for claims arising out of this Agreement directly related to the services or product/service websites. However, any disputes or claims you may have which relate to your credit report, or any claims arising out of or relating to the Fair Credit Reporting Act (“FCRA”) and/or the FCRA’s state law equivalent(s), are not subject to or governed by this agreement to arbitrate. You agree that, by entering into this Agreement, You, Aura and Aura’s service provider(s) are each waiving the right to a trial by jury or to participate in a class action. At your request, we will promptly reimburse you for your payment of your arbitration filing fee. (The filing fee currently is $200 for claims under $10,000 but is subject to change by the arbitration provider. If you are unable to pay this fee, we will pay it directly after receiving a written request). The arbitrator may award declaratory or injunctive relief only in favor of the individual party seeking relief and only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by that party's individual Claim. YOU, ON ONE HAND, AND AURA AND/OR AURA’S SERVICE PROVIDER(S), ON THE OTHER, AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN YOUR OR ITS INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. Further, unless both You, on one hand, and Aura and/or Aura’s service provider(s), on the other, agree otherwise, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person's Claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding. If this specific provision in the preceding sentence is found to be unenforceable, then the entirety of this arbitration provision in this Section 16 shall be null and void. Notwithstanding any of the foregoing provisions, any party may bring an individual action in small claims court. The parties to this Agreement acknowledge that this arbitration agreement is made pursuant to a transaction involving interstate commerce, and shall be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. § 1 et seq. ("FAA"). Judgment upon any arbitration award may be entered in any court having jurisdiction. The arbitrator shall follow substantive law to the extent consistent with the FAA and shall honor any claims or privileges recognized by law.

The terms of this Section 16 shall survive any termination, cancellation or expiration of this Agreement.

17. Miscellaneous Provisions

Identity theft insurance is governed by a master policy the terms of which are incorporated herein by reference. The issuance of the policy is evidenced by an insurance certificate, summary of benefits, or other similar document, that has been provided to you. You acknowledge receipt of this information and agree to be bound by the terms, conditions, limitations, and exclusions of the policy. To view these Terms and our website, you must use a supported browser. You may obtain a paper copy of these disclosures by calling 1-855-443-7748.

For US residents, these Terms are governed by the laws of the Commonwealth of Virginia, USA, exclusive of its choice of law principles.

For Canadian residents, these Terms are governed by the laws of the jurisdiction in which the individual resides.

18. Note on Public Records

The sex offender (“Offender”) information that is used on this site is derived from official public records. In certain cases, we may not obtain all the address information associated with the Offender who is contained in the public record. Depending on the public record data available, we may not be able to plot the Offender on a map and, as such, we may elect to not show information about the Offender. Some of the official data is gathered from the Offenders themselves who are required by law to notify authorities about any changes to their place of residence. The information contained on this site makes no representation as to any Offender's likelihood of re-offending or the nature of any future crimes they may commit.

Aura has no control over the contents of official public records. If you believe the information on this website is incorrect, please contact the local police department in the applicable jurisdiction. That police department will be able to assist you directly or refer you to the appropriate authority. Harassing, stalking, defrauding, or threatening any Offender listed on this website most likely violates your state's laws and is neither condoned nor encouraged by Aura, its directors, shareholders, or employees. A person listed on this website does not necessarily mean that individual is an Offender. Please verify all information and contact your local police department for help.

19. Credit Report-Related Disclosures for US Residents

This product is not intended as a substitute for consumer reports or other information that may be available to you without charge. Under the Fair Credit Reporting Act you are entitled to obtain one free credit file disclosure annually from each of the three nationwide credit reporting systems (Equifax®, Experian®, and TransUnion®) and you may be eligible for additional free reports under certain circumstances, such as, if you are unemployed and intend to apply for employment, if you are receiving public welfare assistance, if you have reason to believe information in your file is inaccurate as a result of fraud, if you have placed a fraud alert or extended fraud alert on your file, or if you have been subject to an adverse action based in whole or in part on the contents of your consumer report.

You also may be entitled to free file disclosures under state law. MA, VT, CO, MD, ME and NJ permit consumers to obtain one credit file per credit reporting agency per year, free of charge. GA permits consumers to obtain two credit files per credit reporting agency per year, free of charge.

NOTICE TO ILLINOIS RESIDENTS: MANY GOVERNMENT RECORDS ARE AVAILABLE FREE OR AT A NOMINAL COST FROM GOVERNMENT AGENCIES. CREDIT REPORTING AGENCIES ARE REQUIRED BY LAW TO GIVE YOU A COPY OF YOUR CREDIT RECORD UPON REQUEST AT NO CHARGE OR FOR A NOMINAL FEE.

The states of MA, VT, CO, NJ, MD and ME permit consumers to obtain one credit report per credit reporting agency per year, free of charge. The state of GA permits consumers to obtain two credit reports per credit reporting agency per year, free of charge.

This Service is not intended to substitute for any free credit report or disclosure that any credit reporting agency or bureau is required by law to provide to you. Neither you nor anyone else has the right to have accurate and current information removed from your credit report. If information in your credit report is inaccurate, you have the right to dispute it by contacting the credit bureau directly.

VANTAGESCORE 3.0 CREDIT SCORE: VantageScore 3.0, with scores ranging from 300 to 850, is a user-friendly credit score model developed by the three major nationwide credit reporting agencies, Experian®, TransUnion®, and Equifax®. VantageScore 3.0 is used by some but not all lenders. Higher scores represent a greater likelihood that you'll pay back your debts so you are viewed as being a lower credit risk to lenders. A lower score indicates to lenders that you may be a higher credit risk.

There are three different major credit reporting agencies, Experian, TransUnion, and Equifax that maintain a record of your credit history known as your credit file. Credit scores are based on the information in your credit file at the time it is requested. Your credit file information can vary from agency to agency because some lenders report your credit history to only one or two of the agencies. So your credit scores can vary if the information they have on file for you is different. Since the information in your file can change over time, your credit scores also may be different from day-to-day. Different credit scoring models can also give a different assessment of the credit risk (risk of default) for the same consumer and same credit file.

There are different credit scoring models which may be used by lenders and insurers. Your lender may not use VantageScore 3.0, so don't be surprised if your lender gives you a score that's different from your VantageScore. (And your VantageScore 3.0 may differ from your score under other types of VantageScores). Just remember that your associated risk level is often the same even if the number is not. For some consumers, however, the risk assessment of VantageScore 3.0 could vary, sometimes substantially, from a lender’s score. If the lender's score is lower than your VantageScore 3.0, it is possible that this difference can lead to higher interest rates and sometimes credit denial.
