ALLSTATE IDENTITY PROTECTION
PLEASE READ THIS ENTIRE AGREEMENT AS IT AFFECTS YOUR RIGHTS.
These Terms and Conditions (also referred to herein as the “Agreement”) set forth the terms and conditions under which InfoArmor, Inc. (known as “Allstate Identity Protection,” “we,” “us,” or “our”) will provide identity and privacy protection, as well as any other products and/or any related services (collectively, the “Products”) to you and, if applicable, your dependent family members (collectively, “you” or “your”) as subscribers for any such Products. InfoArmor, Inc. is a subsidiary of The Allstate Corporation and provides the Products described herein.
You accept this Agreement by either (a) clicking in the box next to “I have read and accepted these Terms and Conditions,” which affixes your electronic signature to this Agreement for each of the Products for which you subscribe, or (b) using the Products, in which case you are agreeing to be bound by this Agreement. By accepting this Agreement, you represent that you are a natural person over 18 years of age and that your access to and use of the Products does not and will not violate any applicable law. Additionally, you represent and warrant that you are a U.S. resident, that you have provided true, accurate and correct information including, if applicable, your valid U.S. Social Security Number, in connection with your registration, and that you will only use the Products for lawful purposes, in accordance with the terms of this Agreement and in connection with your personal accounts.
Among other things, this Agreement contains a provision requiring the use of arbitration to resolve disputes, instead of jury trials, class actions or any other resolution process. This provision is in Article I(S) below and is entitled “Arbitration Provision and Class Action Waiver.”
This means that, instead of suing each other in court, the parties agree to settle disputes only by arbitration. Arbitration works differently. There is no judge or jury, and review is limited but, like a court, the arbitrator can award damages and relief and must honor the limitations contained in this Agreement.
By agreeing to arbitration, the parties understand and agree that they are waiving their rights to utilize all other available resolution processes (e.g. a court action or administrative proceeding) to settle disputes.
If you do not wish to agree to arbitration and waive your right to all other available resolution processes, you may opt out of the mandatory arbitration and class action waiver provision by notifying Allstate Identity Protection within 30 calendar days of your acceptance of this Agreement by sending a notification that includes your name, member ID, and the email address you used to sign up for the Products via electronic mail to email@example.com.
Affixing your electronic signature to this Agreement signifies your acceptance of this Agreement and that this Agreement and the Subsequent Disclosures (as defined herein) constitute electronic records under the Electronic Signatures in Global and National Commerce Act (15 U.S.C. Sections 7001 and following). You further agree that your electronic signature constitutes your consent to receive the Subsequent Disclosures in electronic form. “Subsequent Disclosures” means disclosures or information that we are required or permitted to send to you under applicable law and/or this Agreement.
We may provide Subsequent Disclosures to you by making them available on a secure website, sending them via email to your Email Address or otherwise notifying you through other means selected by Allstate Identity Protection. In accordance with (and subject to) our records retention policy, as updated from time to time, Subsequent Disclosures made available on a secure website will be available for your review for at least 90 days after making them available on our secure website. We may choose to email Subsequent Disclosures to your Email Address. For purposes of this Agreement, your “Email Address” means the email address you give us when you accept this Agreement, or any other email address that you subsequently give us by updating your account registration information, and “Email Notification” means any Subsequent Disclosure that we transmit to your Email Address. To assure your continued receipt of Email Notifications, you must notify us each time you change your Email Address. You may withdraw your consent to receive Subsequent Disclosures in electronic form by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org or calling us at 1-855-821-2331 and we will send Subsequent Disclosures in printed form to the most current address that we have for you in our records.
As noted above, please read this Agreement and keep a copy for your reference. By your acceptance of this Agreement, you agree to the above provisions, as well as the following:
GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS APPLICABLE TO ALL SUBSCRIBERS
B. Refusal of Subscription. We reserve the right to reject any request to subscribe for any Products for any reason including, without limitation, (i) unavailability of a service in the state where you reside or other legal restrictions, (ii) your credit history, (iii) your inability to provide an Appropriate Payment Method (as defined herein), or (iv) your attempt to subscribe for any Product subject to a Coverage Cap (as defined in the Summary Description of Benefits for the Personal Internet & Identity Coverage Policy, and as made available for your review in your online account where we previously paid claims to you or on your behalf).
C. Product Enrollment. You agree to provide valid, accurate, and current personal information during registration for any Product. You understand that Allstate Identity Protection’s ability to provide certain Product features is dependent upon your provision of valid, accurate and current information. You acknowledge and agree that you will not be able to obtain access to certain Product features if you do not properly enroll. You also acknowledge and agree that Allstate Identity Protection, its subcontractors, partners and/or service providers will not be responsible or liable for any acts or omissions related to or your failure to provide valid, accurate and current personal information. You may enroll yourself or you may use an authorized third-party to enroll you by having such authorized third-party provide us with your information on your behalf, together with documentation or other evidence acceptable to us that such third party is authorized to register you and provide such information on your behalf. You may enroll minor children and/or dependents in our Family Plan (described below) if you are their parent or legal guardian and have lawful authority to do so. By enrolling minor children and/or dependents, you acknowledge that this Agreement applies to them and that you agree to and accept the terms of this Agreement on their behalf. By enrolling your spouse or other family members in the Products, you are representing to us that you have their express permission to enroll such family members in the Products. You further agree and acknowledge that this Agreement applies to them and that you accept the terms of this Agreement on their behalf. However, under no circumstances may you enroll your spouse or other family members or dependents who are over the age of 18 into credit monitoring. Any such spouse, adult family member or adult dependent must register for credit monitoring and pass identity verification separately.
D. Family Plan. Our Family Plan provides a portal that enables you and your authorized family members to access and manage the Products from one account. By creating a family account, you grant account access to all authorized family members to view alerts, reports, scores and other disclosures made through your account. If you or other family members do not want shared family access, you or such family members may contact our customer service department to have one or more separate accounts created. Family member coverage extends to your (i) legal or common law spouse, (ii) dependent children or other dependent family members who reside with you, and (iii) dependent children, or other dependent family members who do not reside with you but who are supported financially by you. All such family members must be individually registered to be covered by our Products.
E.No Fraud Alerts; Network Limitations. You understand and agree that the Products (including any of our services that may be used in connection with the Products) do not include the placing of fraud alerts with credit reporting agencies. Additionally, you understand and acknowledge that we monitor your personal information using our network, which is composed of certain proprietary technologies and databases owned by, or otherwise licensed to, us for our use, and that not all transactions, including fraudulent transactions using your personal information, may be monitored due to limitations in the scope and breadth of our network. During the term of your use of the Products, our network and its scope may change without notice to you. You also understand that it may take up to four weeks from acceptance of this Agreement and enrollment in the Products for all related services to be fully activated.
F. No Credit Repair. We are not a credit repair organization or similarly regulated organization under applicable laws, and do not provide any form of credit repair advice. We may offer you access to your credit report and other credit-related information, but we do not offer products, advice, counseling or assistance for the express or implied purpose of repairing or improving your credit. You acknowledge that no one, including Allstate Identity Protection, may legally remove accurate and timely negative information from a credit report.
H. Modification of this Agreement and Products; Additional Agreements. We reserve the right, at our discretion, to change or supplement the terms of this Agreement at any time by posting a new version on this website, www.allstateidentityprotection.com/terms-conditions (this “Site”) or by otherwise notifying you of the revised Agreement. If you do not agree to this Agreement as modified, you must stop using the Products. Your continued use of the Products following the posting of any changes to this Agreement constitutes your acceptance of those changes.
G. Mobile Alerts. Allstate Identity Protection may make certain features of the Products, including alerts, available on or through your registered mobile device. Such features of the Products may be made through push notification, SMS text message, or other mobile alert. If you elect to participate in mobile alerts through the Products, you have the obligation to lock your mobile device and otherwise protect your information contained therein. You consent to the receipt of SMS messages from Allstate Identity Protection in the quantity, frequency, and types delivered through the Products. You are responsible for any fees or other charges (including, where applicable, roaming and data charges) that your wireless carrier may charge for any related data or message services. You understand and agree that Allstate Identity Protection is in no way responsible for, and expressly disclaims any and all liability related to, the failure of a mobile alert to be actually, accurately, timely, or fully delivered to you for any reason whatsoever, including, but not limited to, technical errors or other problems with our systems, those of our subcontractors or service providers, those of your mobile service provider, any other third-party company, or issues related to your mobile account or device.
We reserve the right to change, modify, expand, discontinue, or retire any Product, or any feature thereof, at any time.
If you ask us to assist you with the restoration of your identity following an event of identity fraud, we may need to send you a package of documents (the “Additional Agreements”) which you will need to sign and return to us before we can take action to restore your identity. There will be no extra charge for these services. We will reimburse any incremental expenses, such as notary fees, postage, courier charges, fax charges, photocopies or any additional miscellaneous costs associated with your handling and submission to us of the Additional Agreements to the extent they are directly related to the identity theft incident.
J. Personal Conduct. You understand and agree that you have an obligation to act responsibly to protect your personal information in a reasonable way. You further understand and agree that you have a duty not to allow the reckless disclosure or publishing of your U.S. Social Security Number, credit card or bank account numbers, and/or similar personal information to persons who may reasonably be expected to misuse such information (e.g., “phishing” scams, unsolicited emails, etc.). You also agree to keep and protect your account login information for your subscription for the Products from unauthorized use. Should you breach your obligation to protect your account login information, Allstate Identity Protection may terminate your use of the Products without advance notice to you.

L. Linking Policy; Third Party Promotions. In connection with the Products that we offer, we have established Internet links from our website to select news media outlets, the Federal Trade Commission, and other relevant websites. These linked websites are not under our control, and we are not responsible for their content or delivery. Our use of such links does not constitute or imply our endorsement or guarantee of the products, services, information or recommendations provided by any such websites. In addition, these websites may have privacy policies that are different than ours, and that may provide you less security for your confidential information than we do. If you access any linked third-party website, you do so at your own risk. We disclaim all liability with regard to your access to and use of such linked websites. We or our business partners may present advertisements or promotional materials on or through the site. Your dealings with, or participation in promotions of, any third-party products or services on or through the site are solely between you and such third party and your participation is subject to the terms and conditions associated with that advertisement or promotion.

WITHOUT LIMITING THE FOREGOING LIMITATION OF LIABILITY, IN THE EVENT WE ARE FOUND LIABLE FOR DAMAGES TO YOU IN A COMPETENT LEGAL PROCEEDING, OUR AGGREGATE LIABILITY FOR ALL CLAIMS CAUSED BY, ARISING OUT OF, OR RELATED TO YOUR ACCESS TO AND/OR USE OF THE PRODUCTS IS LIMITED TO THE LESSER OF (A) ONE THOUSAND DOLLARS ($1,000) OR (B) THE AMOUNTS PAID TO US FOR THE PRODUCTS THAT ARE THE BASIS OF THE CLAIM IN THE TWELVE (12) MONTHS PRECEDING THE DATE OF THE CLAIM.
If you subscribe for any Product, you do it at your initiative, and are solely responsible for compliance with applicable laws relating to your use of such Product. Neither we nor our subcontractors, partners or service providers warrant the adequacy, accuracy, or completeness of any information provided through any Product or contained in any third-party website linked to or from any allstate identity protection website.
You understand and agree that allstate identity protection expressly disclaims and bears no liability for fraudulent transactions, whether identified by us or not, and expressly disclaims any warranty that the Products will enable you to comply with law, mitigate damages (including, but not limited to, those related to a data breach), or avoid any other consequences of a data breach or failure by you to institute proper security measures.

The Products, including any software, documentation and any related technical data included with, or contained in, such Products, and any products utilizing any such Products, software, documentation or technical data (collectively, “Regulated Products”) may be subject to U.S. export control laws and regulations, including the Export Administration Regulations and the International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR). You agree that you will not, and you will not cause or assist any third party to, directly or indirectly, export, re-export or release any Regulated Products to any jurisdiction to which, or any party to whom, the export, re-export or release of any Regulated Products is prohibited by applicable U.S. laws or regulations. You represent and warrant that you are not located in a country that is subject to a U.S. Government embargo, or that has been designated by the U.S. Government as a “terrorist supporting” country and that you are not listed on any U.S. Government list of prohibited or restricted parties such as the Office of Foreign Assets Control list.
O. Indemnification. You agree to use the Products only for the purposes stated in, and in compliance with, this Agreement. You agree that you will indemnify and hold Allstate Identity Protection and its affiliates, directors, officers, employees and agents, harmless for, from and against all losses, damages, claims, amounts paid in settlement of claims, costs and expenses, (including direct, incidental, consequential, exemplary, and indirect damages and/or reasonable attorneys’ and consultants’ fees and expenses), interest, awards, judgments, fines, penalties and other liabilities made by or owing to any third-party resulting directly or indirectly from or arising out of your access to or use of the Products or from your violation of this Agreement, or your violation of any law, regulation, or third-party rights in connection with your access to or use of any of the Products.
You shall not, without Allstate Identity Protection’s prior written consent (not to be unreasonably withheld, conditioned or delayed), settle, compromise, or consent to the entry of any judgment in any pending or threatened claim, action, or proceeding in respect of which indemnification is sought hereunder unless such settlement, compromise, or consent includes an unconditional release of Allstate Identity Protection from all liability arising out of such claim, action, or proceeding.
P. Force Majeure. We will not be liable hereunder for failure or delay in our provision of the Products and related performance of our services due to causes arising from or attributable to acts, events, omissions or accidents beyond our reasonable control, including, but not limited to, acts of God, strike, lockout, labor disputes, governmental orders or restrictions, shortage of materials or labor, utility or communication failure, errors, acts or omissions of third party communications services providers, war, act of terrorism, fire, explosion, sabotage, storm, flood, earthquake, or epidemics.

You may not assign your rights or delegate your obligations under this Agreement to anyone without our prior written consent, which we may give or withhold in our sole discretion.
R.Governing Law. This Agreement is governed by and will at all times be construed, interpreted, and enforced in accordance with applicable federal law and, to the extent state law applies, the laws of Illinois, without regard to conflict of law’s provisions, except that the Federal Arbitration Act applies to the arbitration agreement and class action waiver provisions contained in this Agreement.
S. Arbitration Provision and Class Action Waiver. Any claim or controversy arising out of or relating to this Agreement, your use of the Products, or any acts or omissions for which you contend we are liable, including, but not limited to, whether a particular claim or controversy is subject to this section (“Dispute”), will be finally, and exclusively, settled by arbitration held before one arbitrator under the then prevailing Commercial Arbitration Rules and Rules for Expedited Procedures of the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) in force at that time. The arbitration will be conducted in Chicago, Illinois. The arbitrator will be selected pursuant to the AAA rules. The arbitrator will have the power to award no more than the prevailing party’s actual, compensatory damages in connection with any Dispute, and may not award damages in excess of actual, compensatory damages, such as by multiplying actual damages or by awarding consequential, punitive, or exemplary damages (collectively, “Enhanced Damages”), and both you and we irrevocably waive any claim to Enhanced Damages, except where such a waiver would explicitly violate the law of the state in which you live at the time a Dispute arises. This section, regarding Arbitration, will not be construed as an agreement to the joinder or consolidation of arbitration under this Agreement with arbitration of disputes or claims of any party other than you or us, regardless of the nature of the issues or disputes involved. Any judgment upon the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court which has jurisdiction over the non-prevailing party. By agreeing to the foregoing arbitration terms, you waive your right to go to court to assert or defend your rights. You also waive your right to participate in or bring class actions or class arbitrations. If any of the foregoing provisions is determined by a court or arbitrator to be inapplicable or unenforceable with respect to a Dispute, you and we agree that, subject to the foregoing arbitration provisions, jurisdiction over and venue of any suit will be exclusively in the state and federal courts sitting in Cook County, Illinois. If either you or we employ attorneys to enforce any right in connection with any Dispute or lawsuit, the prevailing party will be entitled to recover reasonable attorneys’ fees and expenses, as well as arbitration and/or court costs.
T. Billing and Payment Terms. The total fee for all Products for which you subscribe, whether you subscribe to one or more Products (the “Product Fee”), will be automatically charged to your credit card or through another automated payment method acceptable to us on each Payment Date (an “Appropriate Payment Method”). “Payment Date” means the date on which you subscribe for a Product and each monthly or annual anniversary of such date. For example, if you subscribe for a Product on March 5, the Payment Date will be the fifth day of each month for a monthly subscription, or March 5th of the following year for an annual subscription. By providing us with your payment information, you are representing and warranting to us your authority to do so and our right to charge the Product Fee in accordance with such payment information.
U. Term, Termination, and Renewal. Depending on your offer, your subscription may have an introductory or special offer. Unless your offer states otherwise, after the introductory or special offer expires, your subscription for the Products will automatically renew annually (for annual subscriptions) or monthly (for monthly subscriptions) at the applicable price set forth at www.allstateidentityprotection.com/pricing (or any successor site as determined by Allstate Identity Protection) (the “Renewal Price”) unless and until it is otherwise terminated pursuant to this Agreement. Our prices, including any Renewal Price, are subject to change, however we will notify you in advance. You may terminate your subscription for any or all the Products at any time by calling us at 1-855-821-2331 or by emailing us at email@example.com. Termination for monthly subscriptions will be effective at the end of the current month for which you have paid, and termination for annual subscriptions will be effective immediately upon receipt of your communication to us. Allstate Identity Protection may terminate this Agreement without cause upon written notice to you, such termination to be effective as of the date of transmission of such written notice.
V. Refund of Product Fees. You will not be entitled to a refund of any prepaid Product Fees (or any portion thereof) if you terminate any monthly subscription for Products, however, as noted in Article I(U) above, your subscription will not terminate until the end of the current month for which you have paid. Termination by you of any annual subscription will entitle you to a refund of a prorated portion of Product Fees that you have prepaid for such subscription. Termination by Allstate Identity Protection of your annual or monthly subscription will entitle you to a refund of a prorated portion of Product Fees that you have prepaid for such subscription.
W. Use Restrictions. You shall not and shall not permit others to:i. interfere with the operation of Products or another’s use of the Products;
ii. introduce any viruses, worms, malware, trojans, or other malicious or disruptive code;
iii. impersonate any person or entity, provide false information required for obtaining access to the Products;
iv. use the Products for commercial or other non-personal purposes;
v. reverse engineer, decompile, or otherwise attempt to derive source code of the software that powers the Products;
vi. create or use any script or automated tool that attempts to create multiple ways to access or use the Products;
vii. attempt to gain unauthorized access to the Products or any computer system used to provide the Products, circumvent any access restriction or security measures with respect to the Products, or disclose your access information or otherwise give access to the Products to any third party;viii. tamper, alter, modify, change, disassemble, reverse engineer, copy, or duplicate in any manner the Products or its associated code.
If you do any of the above or otherwise violate this Agreement, your access to and use of the Products will terminate effective immediately, and you will be unable to access or use your subscription account. In addition, you may be subject to legal action and may be denied future participation in any products provided, distributed or sold by us. Failure by Allstate Identity Protection to enforce such rights remedies is not and shall not be deemed a waiver of such rights and remedies.
Y. Waiver. Allstate Identity Protection will not, by the mere lapse of time, without giving notice or taking other action, be deemed to have waived any of our rights under this Agreement. No waiver by us will be binding unless in writing and signed by an authorized representative of Allstate Identity Protection. No waiver by us of a breach of this Agreement will constitute a waiver of any prior or subsequent breach of this Agreement.
Z. Effect of Invalidity. If any provision of this Agreement is determined to be invalid or unenforceable under applicable law, such provision (to the extent of such invalidity or unenforceability) shall be deemed severed from this Agreement, and the remaining provisions of this Agreement will remain valid and enforceable.
AA. Entire Agreement. This Agreement constitutes the entire understanding and agreement between you and us with respect to the subject matter of this Agreement, and all prior and contemporaneous agreements, understandings, representations and communications between you and us concerning such subject matter are hereby superseded and made null and void in their entirety. You acknowledge and agree that you have not relied on any statement, representation, warranty, or agreement of ours or any other person purporting to act on our behalf, including any representations, warranties, or agreements arising from our website, any promotional materials, any statute, or otherwise in law, except for the representations, warranties, or agreements expressly contained in this Agreement.
