Your Membership includes the following products:
Smart Credit Report®
This is a revolutionary new type of Credit Report and is not to be confused with a traditional credit report. What makes it so different is the way information is shown to you and how you can interact with your creditors by using Action buttons. It also has a zoom feature to see more credit details and even your daily transactions that ultimately compromise of the information reported by a credit reporting agency.
By using this product you are giving your permission for us to obtain your credit report data from a third party. You understand that our system transforms this data into our Smart Credit Report and that it is not to be confused with a regular/traditional credit report. Our product uses this data to make the Smart Credit Report available to you. You are also granting your consent to obtain your credit data to fulfill the benefits of our product shall be valid continuously until your Membership account is cancelled as per this agreement.
When you become a Member we will receive your VantageScoreÂ® Credit Score from one or more credit bureaus. However, we reserve the right to use our own internally developed score if necessary depending on the ability of a given credit report to generate a normal credit score. Each of your Scores has a number ranging from bad to excellent along with a letter grade and how you compare to others. You also get a general overview of your Score. All Scores are estimates and are for educational purposes only. They cannot be used to determine final credit.
This is your credit score and its number range is 300-bad to 850-excellent. This score is a general representation of your credit risk lenders use to grant credit.
This represents your possible risk to lenders if you purchase or lease a vehicle.
This represents your possible risk to an insurance company if they are underwriting your insurance.
Hiring Risk Index:
Many employers are allowed to view your credit report (not your credit score), when determining hiring or promotion. This Hiring Risk Index can help you better understand how employers may interrupt your credit report.
Live ID Alerts
This monitors information that is posted to a credit reporting agency (specifically TransUnion) or financial accounts once you add them to Money Manager. Some monitoring Alerts you may get are more important and urgent than others. For these important Alerts we recommend you activate Live ID Alerts on your phone or email. This will put a special rapid response Action button in your Alert to help you remove identity theft right from your phone or email without the need to log in to your account.
In addition, you will get various Alerts keeping you informed of the latest concerning your Money, Credit and Identity. The Alerts are simple and well organized for you. They include Alerts about your Membership, credit monitoring, identity theft alerts, creditor responses to your Actions and when payments are due on your Money Manager linked accounts.
When you log in to your account you will see what percentage of Live ID Alerts you have activated. You will get 25% each for activating your credit monitoring, Money Manager alerts and membership alerts totaling 75%. This is an automatic function of our product and there is nothing you need to do. Lastly, you get 25% for activating Live ID Alerts on your phone and email which puts the rapid response Action button in your important Alerts. We highly recommend you get to 100%.
Make sure you allow our Alerts to get to your email in-box by instructing your email that our Alerts are NOT spam. Credit monitoring Alerts may take 48 hours to start, but may be delayed due to circumstances beyond our control. If we are unable to initiate your credit monitoring, for any reason, you will be notified by email. You understand that the term Live ID Alerts is only a name and general description of Alerts. It is not intended to mean instant or protection of your credit or identity. Live ID Alerts are not guaranteed, nor do they guarantee protection of any kind and are delivered as is.

Having all your money, credit and identity in one place is very simple and convenient, especially when you use an Action button to ask your credit something.
Use the Action buttons, located throughout the site, to communicate directly with your creditors for any questions, problems or requests you may have. It is very fast and you don't need account numbers or have to worry about business hours. Best of all, you don't have to talk to anyone. Just push the button.
When a creditor replies to your Action request they may reply through our system which will then generate an Alert to you. Or, the creditor may reply directly to your home address. A creditor's reply may vary depending on the general responsiveness of the creditor and your Action request. Please allow reasonable time for your creditor(s) to respond to your Action(s).
A creditor may reply with acceptance, denial, counter-offer or request for more information. In some cases, a creditor may not respond at all. In other cases multiple Actions may be required to get the result you desire. Results or replies to your Action(s) are not guaranteed. Delivery of your Action(s) to a creditor is not guaranteed. We do reserve the right to reject any of your Actions for unnecessary repetition, frivolous requests or foul language.
You have until midnight, Pacific Time, to cancel your Action. After which our system will automatically fulfill your Action request.
You understand and agree that you control all Actions that you take during your Membership. You understand and agree that Action results or delivery are not guaranteed. Your creditors and other third parties that you initiate Actions with will make all decisions regarding whether to respond to and/or agree to your requests. You fully understand that you use our products at your own risk. We are never responsible for any costs or other damages you may incur as a result of any Actions you make while using our product. Please see the important disclaimers and limitations of liability below. When you take an Action you certify that all Actions initiated by you are appropriate and lawful. In particular, you understand and agree that disputing any valid accounts/charges or inappropriately claiming identity theft may constitute fraud, which is a crime subject to possible fines and/or imprisonment. If we determine that you are using our product to commit fraud, we will immediately terminate your account and we may report your activity to an appropriate law enforcement authority.
In order to process your Actions, we collect your financial account and creditor information. We may be required to collect additional identifying information or to verify your information by using third party sources. You agree to provide any additional information that we require in connection with your Actions. You are also granting us your limited power of attorney, located in the section entitled "Grant of Limited Power of Attorney", in order to delivery your Action request to your creditor.
You agree that if you add a creditor of your own through our Custom Action feature you are solely responsible for this information. You also agree that you will not add any credit reporting agency as a creditor and that any credit report disputes to any credit reporting agency from our system is strictly prohibited.
We reserve the right (but shall not be obligated) to filter your Action requests through our validation and frivolous filter engines designed to avoid abuses, provide continuity and protect our communications to the source or furnisher of information (i.e. your creditor) that is the subject of your Action.
Actions do not accumulate or roll-over to a subsequent billing period. If you choose not to use your free Action allotment granted to you per each billing period of your Membership, they will no longer be available to you. There are restrictions to the number of free Actions your Membership plan provides, please see Membership Options & Pricing above.

IMPORTANT CONSUMER NOTICES
Please read the following important consumer notices carefully.
WE ARE REQUIRED BY CERTAIN LAWS TO DISCLOSE THE FOLLOWING: "ONLY THE CREDIT BUREAUS CAN REMOVE OR CORRECT INACCURATE, UNVERIFIABLE, OR OUTDATED INFORMATION, FROM YOUR CREDIT REPORT(S), WHICH HAS NOT BEEN CLAIMED TO BE ACCURATE BY THE CREDITOR WHO SUBMITTED THE INFORMATION TO THE CREDIT BUREAUS. YOU MAY SEEK TO HAVE ANY INACCURATE INFORMATION CORRECTED AND, IF APPROPRIATE, REMOVED BY THE CREDIT BUREAUS TO THE EXTENT REQUIRED UNDER APPLICABLE FEDERAL AND STATE LAWS, INCLUDING THE FAIR CREDIT REPORTING ACT. THEREFORE, IT IS IMPORTANT THAT YOU REALIZE THAT NO ONE (INCLUDING US, OUR PRODUCTS, OR ANY CREDIT REPAIR/CARE SERVICE) CAN REMOVE ACCURATE AND CURRENT INFORMATION FROM YOUR CONSUMER CREDIT PROFILE."
The Federal Trade Commission and some States' Attorneys General regulate creditors, credit bureaus and credit care organizations. As a safe harbor statement please know: "You have the right to sue a credit services organization if it misleads you."
CONSUMER CREDIT FILE RIGHTS UNDER STATE AND FEDERAL LAW
You have a right to obtain a copy of your credit file from a consumer credit reporting agency. They may charge a reasonable fee not to exceed eleven dollars ($11). There is no fee, however, if you have been turned down for credit, employment, insurance, or a rental dwelling because of information on your credit report within the preceding 60 days. There is also no fee if you certify that you are unemployed and intend to apply for employment during the next sixty (60) days, that you are a recipient of public welfare assistance, or that you have reason to believe that your file at such credit reporting agency contains inaccurate information due to fraud. You also have the right to receive one free copy of your credit report from each consumer credit reporting agency per year at the www.annualcreditreport.com web site.
The credit data provided or requested through our product is not intended to constitute the disclosure of information by a credit reporting agency as required by the Fair Credit Reporting Act or similar laws.
In addition, if you reside in the state of Colorado, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Jersey, or Vermont, you are entitled to receive a free copy of your credit report once a year and if you reside in the state of Georgia, you are entitled to receive a free copy of your credit report twice a year. Otherwise, a consumer reporting agency may impose a reasonable charge for providing you with a copy of your credit report.
You have a right to dispute inaccurate information by contacting the consumer credit reporting agency directly. However, neither you nor any company or credit services organization has the right to have accurate, current, and verifiable information removed from your credit report. Under the Federal Fair Credit Reporting Act, the consumer credit reporting agency and/or the reporting creditor must remove accurate negative information from your report only if it is over seven years old. Bankruptcy information can be reported for 10 years.
YOU UNDERSTAND ANY ACTIONS YOU MAY TAKE DO NOT GO TO ANY CREDIT REPORTING AGENCY/CREDIT BUREAU, BUT ONLY TO YOUR CREDITOR AS YOU SELECT AND INSTRUCT. IT IS YOUR CREDITOR'S SOLE AND ABSOLUTE DISCRETION TO RESPOND TO YOUR ACTION AS THEY DEEM NECESSARY. YOU ARE NOT REQUIRED TO PURCHASE YOUR CREDIT REPORT FROM US TO COMMUNICATE WITH YOUR CREDITORS. YOU MAY COMMUNICATE DIRECTLY WITH YOUR CREDITORS FOR ANYTHING YOU WISH AT ANY TIME.
If, separately from using our product, you have notified a credit reporting agency in writing that you dispute the accuracy of information in your credit file, the consumer reporting agency must then reinvestigate and modify or remove inaccurate information. The consumer credit reporting agency may not charge a fee for this product. Any pertinent information and copies of all documents you have concerning an error should be given to the consumer credit reporting agency. If reinvestigation does not resolve the dispute to your satisfaction, you may send a brief statement to the consumer credit reporting agency, to keep in your file, explaining why you think the record is inaccurate. The consumer credit reporting agency must include your statement about disputed information in any report it issues about you.
Nonprofit credit counseling services are available, usually without fees, to counsel you as to credit management and/or consolidation. Additionally, many of our product features you may perform on your own, such as our Actions. We are simply a neutral technology allowing consumers to communicate with their Creditors for whatever they need.

You and we agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of a federal or state court located in the County of Los Angeles in the State of California for any actions for which the parties retain the right to seek injunctive or other equitable relief in a court of competent jurisdiction to prevent the actual or threatened infringement, misappropriation or violation of a party's copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets, patents, or other intellectual property rights, as set forth in the Dispute Resolution provision below.
You and MoneyTips agree that any dispute, claim or controversy arising out of or relating to these Terms or the breach, termination, enforcement, interpretation or validity thereof, or to the use of the Services (collectively, "Disputes") will be settled by binding arbitration, except that each party retains the right to seek injunctive or other equitable relief in a court of competent jurisdiction to prevent the actual or threatened infringement, misappropriation or violation of a party's copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets, patents, or other intellectual property rights. You acknowledge and agree that you and us are each waiving the right to a trial by jury or to participate as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class action or representative proceeding. Further, unless both you and us otherwise agree in writing, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person's claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of any class or representative proceeding. If this specific paragraph is held unenforceable, then the entirety of this "Dispute Resolution" section will be deemed void. Except as provided in the preceding sentence, this "Dispute Resolution" section will survive any termination of these Terms.
Arbitration Rules and Governing Law. The arbitration will be administered by JAMS ("JAMS") in accordance with the JAMS Comprehensive Arbitration Rules and Procedures (the "JAMS Rules") then in effect, except as modified by this "Dispute Resolution" section. (The JAMS Rules are available at http://www.jamsadr.com/rules-comprehensive-arbitra... or by calling JAMS at 1-800-352-5267.) The Federal Arbitration Act will govern the interpretation and enforcement of this section. A party who desires to initiate arbitration must provide the other party with a written Demand for Arbitration as specified in the JAMS Rules. (JAMS provides a form for the Demand for Arbitration via http://www.jamsadr.com/rules-download-rules/). Arbitration Location and Procedure. Unless you and MoneyTips otherwise agree, the arbitration will be conducted in the County of Los Angeles in the State of California.

MoneyTips failure to enforce a provision of these Terms is not a waiver of its right to do so later. If any provision of these Terms is found unenforceable, the remaining provisions of the Terms will remain in full effect and an enforceable term or terms will be substituted reflecting our intent as closely as possible. You may not assign any of your rights under these Terms, and any attempt to do so will be void.
