9. ARBITRATION - You, on the one hand and Trilegiant and/or CIC and CSID, 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 under its rules for consumer arbitrations. It is the parties' intent that this arbitration provision be construed broadly, including that this arbitration agreement include any Claims against Trilegiant or CIC and CSID as well as their respective corporate affiliates. You agree that, by entering into this Agreement, You and Trilegiant and CIC and CSID are each waiving the right to a trial by jury or to participate in a class action. At your request, we will pay the first $125 of your arbitration fees. You will be solely responsible for your arbitration fees and costs in excess of $125. 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 THE ONE HAND, AND TRILEGIANT AND/OR CIC AND CSID, 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 and Trilegiant 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 the specific provision in the preceding sentence is found to be unenforceable then the entirety of this arbitration provision in this Section 9 shall be null and void. Notwithstanding the foregoing, either 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"). Judgement upon any arbitration award may be entered in any court having jurisdiction.

The terms of this Section 9 shall survive any termination, cancellation or expiration of this Agreement.

15. VANTAGESCORE 3.0 DISCLOSURE - 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.
1 If You do not access a copy of your credit report and credit score through the IdentitySecure website within 7 days of your enrollment in IdentitySecure, a copy of your credit report and credit VantageScore credit score will be sent to you by IdentitySecure by first-class U.S. Mail.
2 Your VantageScore credit score(s) are provided by VantageScore Solutions LLC. The VantageScore model, with scores ranging from 300 to 850, was developed jointly by the three major national credit reporting agencies - Experian®, TransUnion®, and Equifax®. The version of VantageScore provided here is used by some, but not all, lenders. Your score(s) may not be identical or similar to scores received directly from those agencies, from other sources, or from your lender
3 Daily monitoring will notify you of certain new inquiries and derogatory information, accounts, public records, or change of address that have been added to your credit reports as reported by one of the major credit reporting agencies. If no information has been added or changed, then you will receive a quarterly notification stating that no information has changed within your credit file.
4 The companies participating in IdentitySecure's information network consist of many of the nation's leading credit issuers, including credit card issuers, retailers, and auto, communications, e-commerce and mortgage companies. However, IdentitySecure's information network does not include all credit issuers to which credit applications may be submitted. As a result, it is possible that fraudulent credit applications could be submitted using your personal information that are not detected by IdentitySecure.
5 IdentitySecure monitors your Social Security number and records associated with your Social Security number in credit headers and public data sources, alerts You when your Social Security number or any of your associated records have been detected, and classifies each time your Social Security number or any of your associated records are detected as either a high or low risk event. Your monthly personal Identity Score, which may be accessed by You via www.identitysecure.com, is based on the number and nature of such events. Since it is impossible to ensure that all public data sources have been searched for your Social Security number and associated records, IdentitySecure does not guarantee that it will apprise You of all instances in which your Social Security number or associated records may have been compromised or that your monthly personal Identity Score will accurately reflect your risk for identity-related fraud.
6 IdentitySecure monitors your personal information and up to ten registered credit/debit cards, up to ten registered bank accounts and your Social Security number on the Internet, based on extensive research of Internet chat rooms; however, it is impossible to ensure that all Internet chat rooms have been searched for your personal information. Accordingly, your monitoring alert reports may not contain or apprise You of all your personal information that is publicly available or that may have been compromised.
7 IdentitySecure monitors up to three of your current or past mailing addresses, three of your phone numbers, and three of your e-mail addresses on the Internet based on a search of Internet directories; however, we cannot ensure that all internet directories have been searched for your personal information. Accordingly, we may not be able to apprise You of all of your personal information that may have been compromised.
8 Some financial institutions may require You to call them directly and will not accept notification from third parties in which case we will contact You so that You can call your financial institution directly.
