THE AGREEMENT TO ARBITRATE REQUIRES (WITH LIMITED EXCEPTION) THAT YOU SUBMIT CLAIMS YOU HAVE AGAINST US TO BINDING AND FINAL ARBITRATION, AND FURTHER (1) YOU WILL ONLY BE PERMITTED TO PURSUE CLAIMS AGAINST CYRISK ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS, NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION OR PROCEEDING, AND (2) YOU WILL ONLY BE PERMITTED TO SEEK RELIEF (INCLUDING MONETARY, INJUNCTIVE, AND DECLARATORY RELIEF) ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS.

If it comes to our attention through reliable means that a registered user is a child under 18 years of age, we will cancel that user's account and/or access to the Services. If you are using the Services on behalf of a corporation (or any legal entity other than using it personally), you represent that you are authorized to enter into an agreement on behalf of that legal entity, and are nevertheless individually bound by these Terms even if we have a separate agreement with such corporation.
Not all of the products or services described on this website are available in all areas of the United States and you may not be eligible for them. We reserve the right to determine eligibility. By accessing or using our Services, you agree to be bound by these Terms and by our Privacy & Security Policy.

Any unauthorized use automatically terminates the permission or license granted by CyRisk and may incur legal liabilities for any damages.
Section 5: Accounts and Passwords
In order to access some or all of the Services, you will have to create an account. You hereby represent and warrant that the information you provide to CyRisk upon registration (including information provided through your linked Google or Facebook account, as applicable, or other 3rd party Linked Accounts, as defined below), and at all other times, will be true, accurate, current, and complete. Your "Account Information" also includes any information you provide to us during the insurance application or claims process. You also hereby represent and warrant that you will ensure that this information is kept accurate and up-to-date at all times.
If you are issued an account, you are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your account and password, and you agree to accept responsibility for all activities that occur under your account or password. Unauthorized access or use of such portions of the Services that require an account and password is prohibited. You agree that you will notify CyRisk immediately if you believe that a 3rd party has obtained your User ID or password, or if you believe that any unauthorized access or use may occur or has occurred by contacting our Support team. CyRisk reserves the right to, under its sole discretion, refuse service, suspend or terminate accounts, or otherwise restrict access to the Services.
Section 6: Paid Services, Fees, Payments, and Billing
a. Paid Services.
In consideration for the applicable Paid Service, Paying Customers shall pay fees in the amounts and at the times specified by CyRisk upon setting up Paying Customers' Accounts. Please note that any payment terms presented to Paying Customers in the process of using or signing up for Paid Services are deemed part of this Agreement.
b. Payment Terms.
Payments shall be made in US dollars. Past due amounts which are not subject to a good faith dispute shall bear a late payment charge, until paid, at the rate of one and one half percent (1.5%) per month or the maximum amount permitted by law, whichever is less. Paying Customers agree to reimburse CyRisk for all costs (including attorneys' fees) incurred by CyRisk in collecting late payments. In addition to its other rights and remedies, CyRisk may, at its option, suspend Paying Customers' access to the Service or terminate this Agreement in the event that a Paying Customer is not current in the payment of fees owed to CyRisk.
All payments required by this Agreement are exclusive of federal, state, local and foreign taxes, duties, tariffs, levies, withholdings and similar assessments (including without limitation, sales taxes, use taxes and value added taxes), and Paying Customers agree to bear and be responsible for the payment of all such charges, excluding taxes based upon CyRisk' net income. All amounts payable by Paying Customers hereunder, including without limitation, all fees for the applicable Paid Service, shall be grossed-up for any withholding taxes imposed by any foreign government on Paying Customers' payment of such amounts to CyRisk.
CyRisk uses a third-party payment processor (the "Payment Processor") to bill Paying Customers through a payment account linked to the Paying Customer's Account ("Billing Account") for use of the applicable Paid Service. The processing of payments will be subject to the terms, conditions and privacy policies of the Payment Processor in addition to this Agreement. CyRisk is not responsible for error by the Payment Processor. By choosing to use the applicable Paid Service, Paying Customers agree to pay CyRisk, through the Payment Processor, all charges at the prices then in effect for any use of the applicable Paid Service in accordance with the applicable payment terms and Paying Customers authorize CyRisk, through the Payment Processor, to charge the Paying Customer's chosen payment provider ("Payment Method"). Paying Customers agree to make payment using that selected Payment Method. CyRisk reserves the right to correct any errors or mistakes that it makes even if it has already requested or received payment.
e. Payment Method.
The terms of Paying Customers' payment will be based on the chosen Payment Method and may be determined by agreements between the Paying Customer and the financial institution, credit card issuer or other provider of the chosen Payment Method. If CyRisk, through the Payment Processor, does not receive payment from a Paying Customer, such Paying Customer agrees to pay all amounts due on the Billing Account upon demand.
f. Recurring Billing.
By choosing a recurring payment plan, Paying Customers acknowledge that the applicable Paid Service has an initial and recurring payment feature and Paying Customers accept responsibility for all recurring charges prior to cancellation. CYRISK MAY SUBMIT PERIODIC CHARGES (E.G., MONTHLY) WITHOUT FURTHER AUTHORIZATION FROM PAYING CUSTOMERS, UNTIL A PAYING CUSTOMER PROVIDES PRIOR NOTICE (RECEIPT OF WHICH IS CONFIRMED BY CYRISK) THAT SUCH PAYING CUSTOMER HAS TERMINATED THIS AUTHORIZATION OR WISHES TO CHANGE PAYMENT METHOD. SUCH NOTICE WILL NOT AFFECT CHARGES SUBMITTED BEFORE CYRISK REASONABLY COULD ACT. TO TERMINATE AUTHORIZATION OR CHANGE PAYMENT METHOD, GO TO YOUR ACCOUNT SETTINGS ON THE SITE.
g. Current Information Required.
PAYING CUSTOMERS MUST PROVIDE CURRENT, COMPLETE AND ACCURATE INFORMATION FOR THE BILLING ACCOUNT. PAYING CUSTOMERS MUST PROMPTLY UPDATE ALL INFORMATION TO KEEP THE BILLING ACCOUNT CURRENT, COMPLETE AND ACCURATE (SUCH AS A CHANGE IN BILLING ADDRESS, CREDIT CARD NUMBER, OR CREDIT CARD EXPIRATION DATE), AND PAYING CUSTOMERS MUST PROMPTLY NOTIFY CYRISK OR CYRISK' PAYMENT PROCESSOR IF THE CHOSEN PAYMENT METHOD IS CANCELED (E.G., FOR LOSS OR THEFT) OR IF A PAYING CUSTOMER BECOMES AWARE OF A POTENTIAL BREACH OF SECURITY, SUCH AS THE UNAUTHORIZED DISCLOSURE OR USE OF THE PAYING CUSTOMER'S ACCOUNT CREDENTIALS. CHANGES TO SUCH INFORMATION CAN BE MADE UNDER CUSTOMER'S ACCOUNT SETTINGS ON THE SITE. IF A PAYING CUSTOMER FAILS TO PROVIDE ANY OF THE FOREGOING INFORMATION, SUCH CUSTOMER AGREES THAT CyRisk MAY CONTINUE CHARGING SUCH CUSTOMER FOR ANY USE OF PAID SERVICES UNDER THE BILLING ACCOUNT UNLESS SUCH CUSTOMER HAS TERMINATED THE APPLICABLE PAID SERVICE AS SET FORTH ABOVE.
h. Change in Amount Authorized.
If the amount to be charged to the Billing Account varies from the amount preauthorized (other than due to the imposition of or change in the amount of state sales taxes), Paying Customers have the right to receive, and CyRisk shall provide, notice of the amount to be charged and the date of the charge before the scheduled date of the transaction. Customers agrees to accept delivery of such notice via email at the email address provided during account registration. Any agreement a Paying Customer has with the Payment Processor will govern such Paying Customer's use of the Payment Method. Paying Customers agree that CyRisk may accumulate charges incurred and submit them as one or more aggregate charges during or at the end of each billing cycle.
i. Auto-Renewal for Paid Services.
Unless a Paying Customer opts out of auto-renewal, the applicable Paid Service will be automatically extended for successive renewal periods of the same duration as the subscription term originally selected, at the then-current non-promotional rate. If a Paying Customer terminates the applicable Paid Service, such Customer may use its subscription until the end of its then- current subscription term; such Customer's subscription will not be renewed after the then-current subscription term expires. However, such Customer won't be eligible for a prorated refund of any portion of the subscription fee paid for the then-current subscription period.
j. Reaffirmation of Authorization.
Paying Customers' non-termination or continued use of the applicable Paid Service reaffirms that CyRisk is authorized to charge the chosen Payment Method for the applicable Paid Service. CyRisk may submit those charges for payment and the Paying Customer will be responsible for such charges. This does not waive CyRisk' right to seek payment directly from the Paying Customer. Paying Customers' charges may be payable in advance, in arrears, per usage, or as otherwise described when Customer initially selected to use the applicable Paid Service. In order to purchase an insurance policy through the Services, you may be required to provide CyRisk with information regarding your bank account, credit card, or other payment instrument. You represent and warrant to CyRisk that such information is true and that you are authorized to use the payment instrument. You will promptly update your account information with any changes (for example, a change in your billing address or credit card expiration date) that may occur. You agree to pay CyRisk the insurance premium amount for the insurance policy you have selected in accordance with the terms of such policy and this Terms of Service. You hereby authorize CyRisk to bill your payment instrument in advance on a periodic basis in accordance with the terms of the insurance policy you have purchased. If you dispute any charges you must let CyRisk know within sixty (60) days after the date that CyRisk charges you. You shall be responsible for all taxes associated with the Services other than U.S. taxes based on CyRisk's net income.
Section 7: Open Source Software
Certain software code incorporated into or distributed with the App or otherwise with the Services may be licensed by 3rd parties under various "open-source" or "public-source" software licenses (collectively, the "Open Source Software"). Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in these Terms, the Open Source Software is not licensed under these Terms and instead is separately licensed pursuant to the terms and conditions of their respective open-source software licenses. You agree to comply with the terms and conditions of such open-source software license agreements.
Section 8: 3rd Party Apps
CyRisk's Services allow you to install or utilize certain 3rd party apps ("3rd Party Apps").

You acknowledge and agree that CyRisk shall not be responsible or liable, directly or indirectly, for any damage or loss caused or alleged to be caused by or in connection with the use or reliance on any 3rd Party Apps.
Section 9: Linked Accounts and Social Networking Sites
CyRisk may, now or in the future, allow you to link your account on the App to your account(s) on 3rd party services, such as social networking sites ("Linked Accounts"). If you link your account on the App to a Linked Account, you are authorizing CyRisk to store and use your access credentials to access your Linked Account on your behalf as your agent to integrate your experience with the App with content, information, and features available through such Linked Account. This may include importing the contacts, preferences, interests or "likes" of the Linked Account, and/or pushing updates regarding your use of the Services out to your Linked Accounts. Linking, accessing, or using a 3rd party service through the App in this manner may be subject to additional terms established by the applicable 3rd party, and it is your sole responsibility to comply with such 3rd party terms.
Section 12: Underwriting and Web Scan
By utilizing the Services, you certify that you are authorized to act on behalf of the owner or licensee of, or are the authorized representative of an individual, business, or other legal entity having contractual usage rights granted by an ISP or Web Host owning or licensed to use, any and all Internet Protocol addresses (the "IPs") and the associated computer hardware, network, storage, input/output or electronic control devices, or software installed on such devices (the "Devices") to which you direct Services to be performed.
You hereby authorize CyRisk to perform "Web Scans," as more fully described below, on any devices and domains specified in CyRisk's underwriting application.
CyRisk's "Web Scans" are conducted to ascertain the compliance of network devices and applications with certain published security standards and to disclose security vulnerabilities that may be present. Security audits may be performed with the assistance of CyRisk employees or its appointed contractors, and may from time to time include additional probing and validation beyond the scope of CyRisk's automated scanning system. In certain cases, the exploitation of a vulnerability and/or minimal extraction of data from the target server may be conducted to support CyRisk's security audit findings, or to illustrate a vulnerability to you. Security audits typically include, but are not limited to, port scanning and port connections, evaluating services by checking versions and responses to certain requests, and crawling websites to perform testing of forms, application responses, or to confirm the existence of certain files.
Section 14: User Content
GeneralThe App may request that you submit content such as text, photos, audiovisual content, and other media content ("User Content"). By providing User Content to CyRisk, you are granting CyRisk a license to use the User Content in order to make it available through the App.

You affirm, represent, and warrant that you own or have the necessary licenses, rights, consents, and permissions to publish User Content you submit and to further grant the rights and licenses to CyRisk as provided herein.

These investigations will be conducted solely for CyRisk's benefit, and not for your benefit or that of any 3rd party. If the investigation reveals any information, act, or omission, which in CyRisk's sole opinion, constitutes a violation of any local, state, federal, or foreign law or regulation, these Terms, or is otherwise deemed to harm the Services, CyRisk may immediately shut down your access to the Services. You agree to waive any cause of action or claim you may have against CyRisk for such action.

For any password protected areas, CyRisk may assume a person entering a user name address and associated password is, in fact, that user or is authorized by that user to act on its behalf. CyRisk may assume the latest email addresses and registration information on file with the Services are accurate and current. When programmed to do so, the Services may take prescribed actions in the absence of receiving proper and complete contrary instructions.

We are not affiliated with those websites, do not endorse them, have no control over those websites, and assume no responsibility and/or liability for the content, privacy policies, or practices of any 3rd party websites.

If any provision of these Terms is deemed invalid by a court of competent jurisdiction, the invalidity of such provision shall not affect the validity of the remaining provisions of these Terms, which shall remain in full force and effect.

a. Agreement to ArbitrateThis Dispute Resolution by Binding Arbitration section is referred to in this Terms of Service as the "Arbitration Agreement." You agree that any and all disputes or claims that have arisen or may arise between you and CyRisk, whether arising out of or relating to this Terms of Service (including any alleged breach thereof), our services, any advertising, any aspect of the relationship or transactions between us, shall be resolved exclusively through final and binding arbitration, rather than a court, in accordance with the terms of this Arbitration Agreement, except that you may assert individual claims in small claims court, if your claims qualify. Further, this Arbitration Agreement does not preclude you from bringing issues to the attention of federal, state, or local agencies, and such agencies can, if the law allows, seek relief against us on your behalf. You agree that, by entering into this Terms of Service, you and CyRisk are each waiving the right to a trial by jury or to participate in a class action. Your rights will be determined by a neutral arbitrator, not a judge or jury. The Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of this Arbitration Agreement.
b. Prohibition of Class and Representative Actions and Non-Individualized ReliefYOU AND CYRISK AGREE THAT EACH OF US MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION OR PROCEEDING. UNLESS BOTH YOU AND CYRISK AGREE OTHERWISE, THE ARBITRATOR MAY NOT CONSOLIDATE OR JOIN MORE THAN ONE PERSON'S OR PARTY'S CLAIMS AND MAY NOT OTHERWISE PRESIDE OVER ANY FORM OF A CONSOLIDATED, REPRESENTATIVE, OR CLASS PROCEEDING. ALSO, THE ARBITRATOR MAY AWARD RELIEF (INCLUDING MONETARY, INJUNCTIVE, AND DECLARATORY RELIEF) ONLY IN FAVOR OF THE INDIVIDUAL PARTY SEEKING RELIEF AND ONLY TO THE EXTENT NECESSARY TO PROVIDE RELIEF NECESSITATED BY THAT PARTY'S INDIVIDUAL CLAIM(S), EXCEPT THAT YOU MAY PURSUE A CLAIM FOR AND THE ARBITRATOR MAY AWARD PUBLIC INJUNCTIVE RELIEF UNDER APPLICABLE LAW TO THE EXTENT REQUIRED FOR THE ENFORCEABILITY OF THIS PROVISION.
c. Pre-Arbitration Dispute ResolutionCyRisk is always interested in resolving disputes amicably and efficiently, and most customer concerns can be resolved quickly and to the customer's satisfaction by emailing customer support at help@CyRisk.com. If such efforts prove unsuccessful, a party who intends to seek arbitration must first send to the other, by certified mail, a written Notice of Dispute ("Notice"). The Notice to CyRisk should be sent to CyRisk, Inc., 1160 Battery St., Ste 350, San Francisco, CA 94111 ("Notice Address"). The Notice must (i) describe the nature and basis of the claim or dispute and (ii) set forth the specific relief sought. If CyRisk and you do not resolve the claim within sixty (60) calendar days after the Notice is received, you or CyRisk may commence an arbitration proceeding. During the arbitration, the amount of any settlement offer made by CyRisk or you shall not be disclosed to the arbitrator until after the arbitrator determines the amount, if any, to which you or CyRisk is entitled.
d. Arbitration ProceduresArbitration will be conducted by a neutral arbitrator in accordance with the American Arbitration Association's ("AAA") rules and procedures, including the AAA's Consumer Arbitration Rules (collectively, the "AAA Rules"), as modified by this Arbitration Agreement. For information on the AAA, please visit its website, http://www.adr.org . Information about the AAA Rules and fees for consumer disputes can be found at the AAA's consumer arbitration page, http://www.adr.org/consumer_arbitration . If there is any inconsistency between any term of the AAA Rules and any term of this Arbitration Agreement, the applicable terms of this Arbitration Agreement will control unless the arbitrator determines that the application of the inconsistent Arbitration Agreement terms would not result in a fundamentally fair arbitration. The arbitrator must also follow the provisions of these Terms of Service as a court would. All issues are for the arbitrator to decide, including, but not limited to, issues relating to the scope, enforceability, and arbitrability of this Arbitration Agreement. Although arbitration proceedings are usually simpler and more streamlined than trials and other judicial proceedings, the arbitrator can award the same damages and relief on an individual basis that a court can award to an individual under the Terms of Service and applicable law. Decisions by the arbitrator are enforceable in court and may be overturned by a court only for very limited reasons.
Unless CyRisk and you agree otherwise, any arbitration hearings will take place in a reasonably convenient location for both parties with due consideration of their ability to travel and other pertinent circumstances. If the parties are unable to agree on a location, the determination shall be made by AAA. If your claim is for $10,000 or less, CyRisk agrees that you may choose whether the arbitration will be conducted solely on the basis of documents submitted to the arbitrator, through a telephonic hearing, or by an in-person hearing as established by the AAA Rules. If your claim exceeds $10,000, the right to a hearing will be determined by the AAA Rules. Regardless of the manner in which the arbitration is conducted, the arbitrator shall issue a reasoned written decision sufficient to explain the essential findings and conclusions on which the award is based.
e. Costs of ArbitrationPayment of all filing, administration, and arbitrator fees (collectively, the "Arbitration Fees") will be governed by the AAA Rules, unless otherwise provided in this Arbitration Agreement. If the value of the relief sought is $75,000 or less, at your request, CyRisk will pay all Arbitration Fees. If the value of relief sought is more than $75,000 and you are able to demonstrate to the arbitrator that you are economically unable to pay your portion of the Arbitration Fees or if the arbitrator otherwise determines for any reason that you should not be required to pay your portion of the Arbitration Fees, CyRisk will pay your portion of such fees. In addition, if you demonstrate to the arbitrator that the costs of arbitration will be prohibitive as compared to the costs of litigation, CyRisk will pay as much of the Arbitration Fees as the arbitrator deems necessary to prevent the arbitration from being cost-prohibitive. Any payment of attorneys' fees will be governed by the AAA Rules.
f. ConfidentialityAll aspects of the arbitration proceeding, and any ruling, decision, or award by the arbitrator, will be strictly confidential for the benefit of all parties.
g. SeverabilityIf a court or the arbitrator decides that any term or provision of this Arbitration Agreement (other than the subsection (b) titled "Prohibition of Class and Representative Actions and Non-Individualized Relief" above) is invalid or unenforceable, the parties agree to replace such term or provision with a term or provision that is valid and enforceable and that comes closest to expressing the intention of the invalid or unenforceable term or provision, and this Arbitration Agreement shall be enforceable as so modified. If a court or the arbitrator decides that any of the provisions of subsection (b) above titled "Prohibition of Class and Representative Actions and Non-Individualized Relief" are invalid or unenforceable, then the entirety of this Arbitration Agreement shall be null and void, unless subsection (b) above is deemed to be invalid or unenforceable solely with respect to claims for public injunctive relief. The remainder of the Terms of Service will continue to apply.
h. Future Changes to Arbitration AgreementNotwithstanding any provision in this Terms of Service to the contrary, CyRisk agrees that if it makes any future change to this Arbitration Agreement (other than a change to the Notice Address) while you are a user of the Platform, you may reject any such change by sending CyRisk written notice within thirty (30) calendar days of the change to the Notice Address provided above. By rejecting any future change, you are agreeing that you will arbitrate any dispute between us in accordance with the language of this Arbitration Agreement as of the date you first accepted these Terms of Service (or accepted any subsequent changes to these Terms of Service).
