ACCEPTANCE OF TERMS OF SERVICE
Contact and Electronic Communications. By accessing the USA People Search Applications or Services, you consent to having this agreement provided to you in electronic form and that all agreements, notices, disclosures, and other communications we provide to you electronically satisfy any legal requirements that such communications be in writing. You acknowledge that when you provide us with information in connection with a particular activity or otherwise sign up for our Services or provide any contact information, including an email address or telephone number in connection with that activity, product or service (“Contact Information”), you agree that this action constitutes a purchase or inquiry establishing a business relationship with us. You expressly consent to our communicating with you about our Services using the Contact Information you provided to us. You also attest that you have the legal authority over any telephone number you provide to us and can provide us with the authorization to contact you. This means we may contact you, in person or by recorded message, by e-mail, telephone and/or mobile telephone number (including use of automated dialing equipment), text (SMS) message, or any other means of communication that your wireless or other telecommunications device may be capable of receiving.
YOUR USE OF THE USAPEOPLESEARCH APPLICATIONS
USA People Search provides a database of public records and publicly available sources of information aggregated for your convenience. The USA People Search searches, including its background checks, made available by and through the USA People Search Applications, are provided for informational purposes only. While we are constantly updating and refining our database and service, we do not represent or warrant that the results provided will be 100% accurate and up to date and, as such, USA People Search shall not be responsible or liable for the accuracy, usefulness, availability or unavailability of any information transmitted or made available via the USA People Search Applications. USA People Search does not make any representation or warranty as to the character or the integrity of the person, business, or entity that is the subject of any USA People Search searches. USA People Search also reserves the right to delete any information from its databases at any time.
USAPEOPLESEARCH IS NOT A CREDIT REPORTING AGENCY FOR PURPOSES OF THE FAIR CREDIT REPORTING ACT (“FCRA”). AS SUCH, THE ADDITIONAL PROTECTIONS AFFORDED TO CONSUMERS, AND OBLIGATIONS PLACED UPON CREDIT REPORTING AGENCIES, ARE NOT CONTEMPLATED BY, NOR CONTAINED WITHIN, THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS.
Restrictions on your Use of our Services. You may not use any information obtained from our Searches, including, without limitation, the USA People Search background checks, in connection with determining a prospective candidate’s suitability for:
- Health insurance or any other insurance
- Credit and/or loans
- Tenant screening
- Education, scholarships or fellowships
- Housing or other accommodations
- Benefits, privileges or services provided by any business establishment
Limited Guarantee. Most of the services accessible from USA People Search Applications come with a limited guarantee; this means that if your search does not return any results, we may provide you with another search, at no additional cost to you, but will not refund your purchase. You acknowledge that the Services are provided "as is." You are paying for us to conduct a search on your behalf, not to return any particular result. Information is often obtained by third parties and the accuracy of the information cannot be guaranteed. Users should use extreme caution when interpreting search results. Some of the information provided in searches is based upon logic-based assumptions from information in our database compiled from public records regarding individuals’ names, addresses, ages, last names and the dates which correspond to these names, addresses and ages. We may also provide you publicly available marriage and divorce records when you conduct a search using our Services. Positive or false matches based on our assumptions or records may not provide conclusive confirmation of an individual’s status (marital or otherwise) – for example, there could be instances where the gender of the names coupled with statistics of common marriageable ages indicates a husband:wife relationship when it is in fact another relationship, such as brother:sister; this could be the result of the aforementioned logic-based results, which may not apply in all cases but which make the most sense based on ages, addresses shared, and dates shared. Therefore, we urge you to independently verify any information you gather from our USA People Search Applications as a possibility exists that our search results could be inaccurate.
Personal Use Only. The USA People Search Applications, the Content and the Services are intended for your personal, noncommercial use in accordance with these Terms. You agree that you will not, unless specifically permitted by us (i) copy, display or distribute any part of the Content or USA People Search Applications, in any medium, without USA People Search's prior written consent, or (ii) alter or modify any part of the USA People Search Applications other than as may be reasonably necessary to use the USA People Search Applications for their intended purpose. You further agree that you will not use any automated devices, such as spiders, robots or data mining techniques to download, store or otherwise reproduce, store or distribute Content or to manipulate the USA People Search Applications or Services. You will take no action to interfere with, interrupt, destroy or limit the functionality of the USA People Search Applications or any computer software or hardware or telecommunications equipment. You may not use the USA People Search Applications or Services in any manner that could damage, disable, overburden, or impair any USA People Search server, or the network(s) connected to any USA People Search server, or interfere with any other party’s use and enjoyment of any USA People Search Applications or Services. You may not attempt to gain unauthorized access to any USA People Search Applications or Services, other accounts, computer systems or networks connected to any USA People Search server or to any of the USA People Search Applications or Services, through hacking, cracking, and distribution of counterfeit software, password mining or any other means. You may not obtain or attempt to obtain any materials or information through any means not intentionally made available through the USA People Search Applications or Services. You may not reverse engineer, decompile or disassemble any software accessed through USA People Search Applications or Services, including any proprietary communications protocol used by USA People Search.

Legal Notices about your Searches. The Company has not considered or assessed the specific risk that any convicted sex offender displayed on a search will commit another offense or the nature of any future crimes that may be committed. Only information on registered sex offenders allowed to be legally disclosed appears on a search. Some registered sex offenders are not subject to public disclosure, so that they are not included on the Search. State law does not allow offenses other than the crimes for which the convicted sex offender is required to register to be disclosed. Extreme care must be taken in the use of information in a search because mistaken identity may occur when relying solely upon name, age, and address to identify individuals. If you believe that any information in a search is in error, please contact a police of sheriff's department, or contact the Department of Justice by e-mail at MegansLaw@doj.ca.gov. In some states, like California, it is illegal to use information obtained through public records to commit a crime against a registered sex offender or to engage in discrimination or harassment against a registered sex offender. Criminal misuse of this information subjects the person who misuses it to a sentence enhancement, in addition to the punishment for the crime committed. Civil misuse of this information may subject the person to civil damages and penalties pursuant to California Penal Code Section 290.4 (e) (3) (A).
Registration Obligations. In consideration of your use of the USA People Search Applications, you represent and agree that you are of legal age to form a binding contract and are not a person barred from receiving our services under the laws of the United States or other applicable jurisdiction and will provide true, accurate, current and complete information about yourself as prompted by USA People Search Applications. USA People Search reserves the right to deny, in its sole discretion, any user access to the USA People Search Applications or Services without notice for any or no reason.
Security of Username and Password. You are entirely responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your password and account for any USA People Search Applications you interact with. Furthermore, you are entirely responsible for any and all activities that occur under your account. You agree to notify USA People Search immediately of any unauthorized use or theft of your account(s) or any other breach of security (and to provide properly documented evidence as reasonably requested by USA People Search). We will not be liable for any loss that you may incur as a result of someone else using your password or account, either with or without your knowledge. However, you will be liable for losses incurred by USA People Search or another party due to someone else using your account or password.
USA PEOPLE SEARCH SERVICES
Individual Searches. You can use the USA People Search Applications to search for basic information about people, such as address or phone number; basic information for an email address, such as name, phone, address, date of birth, and relatives; and you can search for information in public records, such as birth records and marriage records.
Premium Searches. You can use the USA People Search Applications to order background checks, which provide comprehensive information about a person; reverse phone reports, which provide information such as the name, address, historical records, and connection status verification on a phone number; statewide criminal reports, which allow you to conduct statewide criminal searches for information such as name, date of birth, gender, and offense details; and nationwide criminal reports, which allow you to search for the same type of information as the statewide criminal reports on a nationwide level.
USA People Search Memberships. USA People Search offers numerous memberships, which allow you to conduct various types of searches for a monthly or annual fee, rather than paying for each search.
MEMBERSHIP SUBSCRIPTIONS; CHARGES ON YOUR BILLING ACCOUNT; REFUND POLICY
One Time Service Fees: USA People Search Service is available for a one-time license fee. If you are not satisfied with your purchase, please contact us within 30 (thirty) days from the original date of purchase to discuss your concerns. If we cannot solve your concerns, we may provide you with another search, at no additional cost to you. We will not refund your purchase.
Membership Service Fees. If you sign up for our monthly or annual Membership or other subscription term you select ("Membership Service") USA People Search bills you for your online account using the billing information you provide (your "Billing Account") for use of the Membership Service which enables you to conduct unlimited searches during your term of membership you select. A one month term is agreed by each member to be a 30-day period. You agree to pay USA People Search all charges at the prices then in effect for your use of the Membership Service using your Billing Account, and any applicable taxes, and you authorize USA People Search to charge your chosen payment provider (your "Payment Method") for the Membership Service. You agree to make payment using that selected Payment Method. The terms of your payment will be based on your Payment Method and may be determined by agreements between you and the financial institution, credit card issuer or other provider of your chosen Payment Method (the "Payment Method Provider"). If USA People Search does not receive payment from your Payment Method Provider, you agree to pay all amounts due on your Billing Account upon demand. In the event we are advised of insufficient funds in your account or credit to cover your payment by credit card, we may re-present such uncleared or rejected payment to your Payment Method Provider. USA People Search reserves the right to correct any errors or mistakes that it makes even if it has already requested or received payment and to update your information from available third party sources. You can cancel your Membership at any point during your current subscription term to avoid subsequent fees being billed by using our contact form located at http://www.usa-people-search.com/contact.aspx or by logging into your account, http://www.usa-people-search.com/login.aspx, clicking on the "My Account" link and going to the section entitled "Membership”. Because of the unlimited user access granted to you during the period of membership, all monthly charges are NON-REFUNDABLE regardless of the amount of time left on the Member's monthly term. If you cancel a longer subscription term membership you may receive a pro-rata refund based upon any full months left on your term. Pro-rata months are not refunded. All prices are in US Dollars and do not include Internet service provider, telephone, and other connection charges.
Free or Introductory Promotional Offers: If you have joined under a special introductory trial offer (for example, a discounted or free initial trial) (“Trial”), you hereby acknowledge that unless you cancel before the expiration of your Trial the applicable fee for the subscription term selected will be posted to your Payment Method on the day after the trial period is completed. In order to receive any refund for a charge made after you have cancelled you must provide proof of cancellation. Such proof will be limited to the automated confirmation email from USA People Search showing the date and time of said cancellation.
Limitation on Re-activation: You agree that there is one (1) introductory or trial offer (“Trial”) for use per member/computer/email address. You further agree that if and when you choose to re-activate and continue your Membership, your account will re-activate at the then current monthly fee. Use of multiple Trials by you is prohibited and USA People Search may charge one regular monthly fee for each additional Trial used by you after the first, even if each subsequent membership Trial is cancelled within the said Trial period.
Cancellation. You may cancel your Membership at any time by contacting our Customer Care Department at 800-248-1544. When you cancel automatic renewal on a monthly Membership, your Membership will continue through the rest of the current month. When you cancel automatic renewal on longer term subscription, your Membership will continue through the rest of the current month. At the end of that period, your Membership will not renew automatically, and you will lose the benefits of Membership.
Current Information Required. You must promptly notify USA People Search if your payment method is canceled (e.g., for loss or theft) or if you become aware of a potential breach of security, such as the unauthorized disclosure or use of your user name or password. Changes to such information can be made by logging into your account at http://www.usa-people-search.com/login.aspx or any other section on the Site that allows you to change your account settings now or in the future. You can also e-mail us by using our contact form located at http://www.usa-people-search.com/contact.aspx. If you fail to provide the company any of the foregoing information, you agree that USA People Search may continue charging you for any use of the Service under your Billing Information unless we have evidence that you have terminated your Membership. Any attorney fees, court costs, or other costs incurred in collection of delinquent undisputed amounts will be the responsibility of and paid for by you.

RESOLUTION OF DISPUTES
Governing Law. These Terms shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of California without application of conflict of laws rules.
Resolution of any Dispute. In the event a dispute arises between you and USA People Search, we want to provide you with an efficient, neutral and cost-effective means of resolving the dispute. Most customer concerns can be resolved quickly and to the customer’s satisfaction by calling our Customer Care Department at 800-248-1544, or by emailing us using our contact form located at http://www.usa-people-search.com/contact.aspx. If, however, there is an issue that needs to be resolved, these Terms describe how both of us will proceed:
Limitation of Legal Remedies. INSTEAD OF SUING IN COURT, YOU AND COMPANY EACH AGREE TO ARBITRATE DISPUTES ON A BILATERAL (INDIVIDUAL) BASIS. You and USA People Search agree that any dispute, controversy or claim arising out of or relating to any aspect of our relationship; the Content accessible from USA People Search Applications; claims that may arise after the termination of your Membership; and claims related to marketing efforts, including complaints concerning unsolicited text messages, emails, and telemarketing calls ("Claim(s)") which cannot be settled through the Customer Care Department refunding your payments in full, shall be resolved by one arbitrator through binding arbitration. This agreement to arbitrate is intended to be broadly interpreted. It includes Claims based in contract, tort, statute, fraud, misrepresentation or any other legal theory. The arbitrator’s decision and award is final and binding, with some exceptions under the Federal Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. 1, et seq., and judgment on the award may be entered in any court with jurisdiction.
Class Action Waiver. We each agree that each of us are waiving the right to a trial by jury and may bring claims against the other only in an individual capacity and not in a class action or representative proceeding. All arbitrations under these Terms shall be conducted on an individual (and not a class-wide) basis, and an arbitrator shall have no authority to award class-wide relief. You acknowledge and agree that these Terms specifically prohibit you from commencing any legal proceedings as a representative of others or joining in any arbitration proceedings brought by any other person (“class action waiver”).
Arbitration Procedures. A party who intends to seek arbitration must first send to the other a written Notice of Dispute describing the nature and basis of the Claim and setting forth the specific relief sought. All Notices to USA People Search shall be sent to the following address: USA People Search, P.O. Box 188860, Sacramento, CA 95818. All notices to Members will be sent to the email provided in the Member’s Account. Upon receipt of such Notice, the other party shall have a sixty (60) day period in which it may satisfy the Claim against it by fully curing the Claim and/or providing all the relief requested in the Notice, and/or entering into a settlement to resolve the Claim to the mutual satisfaction of the parties. After the expiration of such sixty-day cure period, you or USA People Search may commence an arbitration proceeding. The arbitration of any Claim under this Agreement shall be referred to the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) under its rules and procedures, including the AAA's Commercial Dispute Resolution Procedures and Supplementary Procedures for Consumer-Related Disputes. These rules and procedures are available by calling the AAA or by visiting its web site at www.adr.org. The arbitration of any Claim shall be conducted in the State of California, and for any non-frivolous claim that does not exceed $10,000 USA People Search will: (1) pay all costs of the arbitration; (2) if you prefer will conduct the arbitration by telephone; and (3) will not seek attorney’s fees in the event USA People Search prevails. Each party shall pay the fees and costs of its own counsel, experts and witnesses.
Choice of Law. This arbitration agreement concerns a transaction in interstate commerce, and therefore shall be governed by the United States Federal Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. § 1 et seq. The FAA’s provisions, not state law, govern all questions of whether a dispute is subject to arbitration.
Exception. Any claim or action for indemnification, contribution, interpleader or injunctive relief arising out of a Claim shall not be subject to arbitration.
Survival. This arbitration provision shall survive termination of this agreement and the closing of your account or membership.
Severability. If any provision of these Terms is declared or found to be unlawful, unenforceable or void, such provision will be ineffective only to the extent that it is found unlawful, unenforceable or void, and the remainder of the provision and all other provisions shall remain fully enforceable except that if for some reason this prohibition on class action waiver cannot be enforced, then this agreement to arbitrate will not apply.
These Terms and policies incorporated herein ("Policies"), are the entire agreement between you and USA People Search. They supersede any and all prior or contemporaneous agreements between you and USA People Search relating to your use of the USA People Search Applications or the Services. USA People Search may assign these Terms in whole or in part, at any time. If any part of these Terms, other than class action waiver as set forth above, is determined to be invalid or unenforceable, it will not impact any other provision of these Terms, all of which will remain in full force and effect. Headings in these Terms are for convenience of reference only and shall not affect the interpretation or construction of these Terms. The failure of USA People Search to partially or fully exercise any rights or the waiver of USA People Search of any breach of these Terms by you, shall not prevent a subsequent exercise of such right by USA People Search or be deemed a waiver by USA People Search of any subsequent breach by you of the same or any other term of these Terms. The rights and remedies of USA People Search under these Terms, its Policies and any other applicable agreement between you and USA People Search shall be cumulative, and the exercise of any such right or remedy shall not limit USA People Search's right to exercise any other right or remedy.
