License & Terms of Service
Last updated: October 1, 2021.
Thanks for choosing PassWatch. First, let’s review the License and Terms of Service according to which we offer this service to you. In this document, we’ll outline in detail what we provide you (our customers), and each of our legal obligations. The terms and conditions contained in this document will be collectively referred to as the “Terms.”
Here is a quick breakdown to make these easier to understand:
When do these terms apply?
You are eligible to use PassWatch because you’re an existing customer of the Privacy Assist/Identity Defense services provided by Intersections Inc. Please note that you will cease to have access to PassWatch when your subscription with Privacy Assist or Identity Defense ends.
These Terms apply to your use of PassWatch, including all software provided as a part of our services (the “Software”), whether through the web or a mobile application, or in any other manner (collectively, the “Service”). Except as otherwise provided herein, when the term “Service” is used in these Terms, we are referring generally to all products, services, and Software offered by Aura in connection with PassWatch. As such, these Terms apply anytime you (i) create an account in connection with the Service; (ii) download or use any Software in connection with the Service, (iii) use the Service via our websites, or (iv) otherwise use the Service or interact with Aura in connection with the Service.
How do you agree to our terms?
You are agreeing to these Terms when you sign up for or use the Service. This means that anytime you access or use the Service, you are agreeing to the Terms. We encourage you to read our Terms carefully, as they contain many important provisions, including automatic renewal terms and mandatory arbitration, that significantly affect your legal rights.
We note, in particular, that these Terms contain an arbitration agreement that requires U.S. users to resolve disputes with Aura or its affiliates through arbitration on an individual basis. Arbitration on an individual basis means that you will not have, and you waive, the right for a judge or jury to decide your claims, and that you may not proceed in a class, consolidated, or representative capacity. See Section 2.12 below for the details of the arbitration agreement.
Who is Aura?
“Aura,” “We” or “Us” means Intersections Inc. and our affiliates. These Terms represent a binding contract between you and Aura.
What is covered by these Terms?
To make it easier to understand, we’ve divided our legal terms into four parts:
- General Legal Terms: This covers the general legal terms that make up the contractual relationship between you and Aura with respect to your use of the Service, such as eligibility, user accounts, binding arbitration, and indemnification.
- Service Specific Terms: These are additional terms that apply to your use of the Service.
- License Terms: These are terms that govern how we give you a license to access and use the Service.

IMPORTANT NOTICE REGARDING ARBITRATION FOR U.S. CUSTOMERS – IF YOU RESIDE IN THE U.S. WHEN YOU AGREE TO THESE TERMS, YOU AGREE TO RESOLVE ALL DISPUTES WITH AURA AND ITS AFFILIATES THROUGH ARBITRATION ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS RATHER THAN JURY TRIALS OR CLASS ACTIONS.

2.8 Disclaimers; No Warranties. TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED UNDER LAW AND SAVE FOR THE RIGHTS GRANTED TO CONSUMERS UNDER APPLICABLE LAWS, Aura disclaims all warranties, statutory, express, or implied, including, but not limited to, implied warranties of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, and non-infringement of proprietary rights.

2.12 DISPUTE RESOLUTION BY BINDING INDIVIDUAL ARBITRATION
Please read this carefully. It affects your rights.
(A) Most customer concerns can be resolved quickly and to the customer’s satisfaction by calling customer service at 1-855-443-7748. In the unlikely event that customer service is unable to resolve a complaint you may have with Aura or Aura’s service provider(s) to your satisfaction (or if Aura and/or Aura’s service provider(s) have not been able to resolve a dispute with you after attempting to do so informally), you, on the one hand, and Aura and/or Aura’s service provider(s), on the other, each agree to resolve those disputes under the Arbitration Agreement contained in this Section 2.12. The Arbitration Agreement requires you to resolve all disputes (other than those expressly exempted in this Section 2.12) through binding arbitration on an individual basis, instead of in courts of general jurisdiction to the fullest extent permitted by law. Arbitration is more informal than a lawsuit in court. Arbitration uses a neutral arbitrator instead of a judge or jury, allows for more limited discovery than in court, and is subject to very limited review by courts. Arbitrators can award the same damages and relief that a court can award. Any arbitration under these Terms will take place on an individual basis; class arbitrations and class actions are not permitted. We will pay all costs of arbitration, no matter who wins, so long as your claim is not frivolous. However, in arbitration, you, on the one hand, and Aura and/or Aura’s service provider(s), on the other, will be entitled to recover attorneys’ fees to the same extent they would be available in court.
(B) ARBITRATION AGREEMENT – You, on the one hand, and Aura and/or Aura’s service provider(s), 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 ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS administered by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) under its rules for consumer arbitrations, as modified by this Arbitration Agreement. The AAA Rules, as well as instructions on how to file an arbitration proceeding with the AAA, appear at adr.org, or you may call the AAA at 1-800-778-7879. Aura can also help put you in touch with the AAA. The parties intend that this agreement to arbitrate (“Arbitration Agreement”) be construed broadly, such that this Arbitration Agreement includes any Claims by you against Aura or Aura’s service provider(s) as well as their respective corporate affiliates for any claims, disputes, or causes of action related in any way to (i) your use of the Service or (ii) the breach, enforcement, interpretation, applicability, or validity of these Terms or any part of them (including this Arbitration Agreement).
You agree that, by entering into these Terms or otherwise using the Service, you are waiving the right to a trial by jury or to participate in a class action. At your request, we will promptly reimburse you for the payment of your arbitration filing fee. (The filing fee for consumers currently is $200 but is subject to change by the arbitration provider. If you are unable to pay this fee, we will pay it directly after receiving a written request). The arbitrator shall be authorized to award whatever relief would be available in a court under law or in equity, other than relief reserved for the courts by law or statute. YOU, ON ONE HAND, AND AURA AND/OR AURA’S SERVICE PROVIDER(S), 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 Aura 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 this specific provision in the preceding sentence is found to be unenforceable, then the entirety of this Arbitration Agreement shall be null and void. The parties to these Terms acknowledge that this Arbitration Agreement is made according to a transaction involving interstate commerce, and shall be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. § 1 et seq. (“FAA”), except to the extent state law provides defenses or exceptions not preempted by the FAA. Judgment upon any arbitration award may be entered in any court having jurisdiction. The arbitrator shall follow substantive law to the extent consistent with the FAA and shall honor any claims or privileges recognized by law. The terms of this Section 2.12 shall survive any termination, cancellation, or expiration of this Agreement.
Exceptions to Arbitration: Notwithstanding the foregoing, claims properly lodged in a small claims court of the United States are not subject to this Arbitration Agreement, provided that they are brought and maintained as individual claims and not in any class, consolidated, or representative capacity.
2.13 Prohibited Conduct. BY USING THE SERVICES, YOU AGREE NOT TO:
(A) use the Service for any fraudulent, harassing, or abusive purpose, or to damage or cause risk to our business, reputation, employees, subscribers, facilities, or any person;
