If any information you provide is untrue, inaccurate or not current, or if CR has reasonable grounds to suspect that such information is untrue, inaccurate or not current, CR, at its sole discretion, has the right to suspend or terminate your order of, use of, and/or access to, any Product, Product Website and/or Content, and refuse all current or future orders of, use of, and/or access to, any Product, Product Website and/or Content, or suspend or terminate any portion thereof.

While enrolling for the products and/or services, we will ask you for the following types of information: contact information (such as name, address, phone number, and e-mail address); sensitive information (such as date of birth, driver’s license number and social security number); personal information to verify your identity and payment information (such as credit card number). This information is required in order to verify your identity, charge you the agreed upon fees for our products and services, and to fulfill our obligation to provide our products and services to you, including communicating with third parties as necessary to provide such products and services, such as identification verification companies, consumer reporting agencies, payment validation companies, law enforcement agencies, or others.
YOU UNDERSTAND AND AGREE THAT ALL CLAIMS, DISPUTES OR CONTROVERSIES BETWEEN YOU AND CR, AND ITS PARENTS, AFFILIATES, SUBSIDIARIES OR RELATED COMPANIES, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO TORT AND CONTRACT CLAIMS, CLAIMS BASED UPON ANY FEDERAL, STATE OR LOCAL STATUTE, LAW, ORDER, ORDINANCE OR REGULATION, AND THE ISSUE OF ARBITRABILITY, SHALL BE RESOLVED BY FINAL AND BINDING ARBITRATION AT A LOCATION DETERMINED BY THE ARBITRATOR.

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 60 days as a result of your report
- You certify in writing that you are unemployed and intend to apply for employment in the 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 credit report you used on your behalf by CR to provide products and services to you is not intended to constitute the disclosure of information required by the FCRA or similar state laws. This disclosure report must be obtained directly from a credit bureau.
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 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 CR 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 report under the FCRA, you must go to www.annualcreditreport.com, or call 877-322-8228. CR's Products are not related to the free FCRA disclosure that you are or may be entitled to.
MODIFICATION OF PRODUCTS
CR may, at its discretion, modify or discontinue any of the Products, Product Websites or Content, or any portion thereof, with or without notice. You agree that CR will not be liable to you or any third party for any modification or discontinuance of any of the Products, Product Websites or Content.
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.
SECURITY MEASURES AND AUTHENTICATION
Because CR uses security measures designed to protect your privacy and to safeguard your information, CR may not always be able to successfully provide Products to you. For example, for certain online Products, when the system is unable to verify your identity, you may be routed through a manual phone authentication process. For other products, CR cannot offer a manual authentication process and will be unable to fulfill all products in your order if you fail online authentication one or more times.
CR may use your personal information to the extent necessary to process your order and/or engage in business maintenance.

The credit score used on this site is a user-friendly credit score model developed by CR to help you see and understand how lenders view your credit worthiness. It is not used by lenders, but it is indicative of your overall credit risk. 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. Your Credit Score is 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 score can vary if the information they have on file for you is different. And since the information in your file can change over time, your Credit Score may be different from day-to-day.
Lenders and insurers use several different credit scoring models so don't be surprised if your lender gives you a score that’s different from the credit score you receive online. Just remember that your associated risk level is generally the same even if the number is not. If the lender’s score is lower than your online score, it is possible that this difference can lead to higher interest rates and sometimes credit denial.
REGISTERING FOR ANY PRODUCT
