Please read the following important terms and conditions ("Terms") carefully. These Terms govern your access to and use of the Services (as described below), and constitute a binding legal agreement between you, as a user of the Services, and Reppify. Your access to and use of the Services is conditioned on your compliance with these Terms. By creating an Account and accessing and/or using the Services, you agree to be bound by these Terms.
Reppify provides a reputation information service for users. By allowing Reppify to link your Reppify account with your other online accounts, Reppify will (1) generate a profile and "Reppify Score" which is based on the information Reppify collects about your online activities and (2) provides other users your Reppify Score, to facilitate a safer and more transparent web experience among people with whom you have a personal or business relationship (the "Services"). A person's Reppify Score reflects the information obtained by Reppify about their online activities and dealings, and is intended to be a starting point for information gathering purposes; it is not a guarantee of any person's competency, qualifications, experience, character, integrity, or other personal or professional characteristics.
In order to generate a Reppify Score and access certain features of our Services, you must create a Reppify account (your "Account"). To create an Account you must be of legal age to form a binding contract. If you are not of legal age to form a binding contract, you may not register to use our Services. When you register, you will be asked to choose a user name and a password. You are responsible for safeguarding and maintaining the confidentiality of your password and you agree not to disclose your password to any third party. You are responsible for any activities or actions taken under your Account, whether or not you have authorized such activities or actions. You should notify Reppify of any unauthorized use of your password or your Account. You agree that the information that you provide to us upon registration, and at all other times will be true, accurate, current and complete. By creating an Account you consent to the use of: (i) electronic means to complete these Terms and to provide you with any notices given pursuant to these Terms; and (ii) electronic records to store information related to these Terms or your use of the Services.
In order to generate a more accurate Reppify Score, you have the option of linking your various online accounts to link to your Reppify Account. You may only link your own accounts and may not link or use the accounts of others to create a Reppify Score. You may only link an online account to one Reppify Account. You may not use the Services to impersonate others (or link to accounts that are not yours) or include or use any false or inaccurate information in your profile information of your Reppify Account.
If you are displeased with your Reppify Score or otherwise prefer not to share your Reppify Score with others, you can simply inform Reppify that you do not want to grant others access to your Reppify Score. In such case, Reppify will not share your Reppify Score and we will inform the other party that you have declined to participate in our services. Reppify reserves the right to share your Reppify Score at any time without your consent by removing any personally identifiable information. If you disagree with a Reppify Score or would like to register a complaint about a user or notify us of inaccurate or misleading information, you can contact us at disputes [at] reppify.com.
Reppify Scores are provided for informational purposes only. You acknowledge and agree that Reppify does not represent or warrant that the Reppify Scores are accurate, complete, or appropriate and that Reppify shall not be responsible or liable for the accuracy, usefulness or availability of the Reppify Scores or any other information transmitted or made available via the Services.

The Services comply with the provisions of the FCRA, including: (1) Section 607(d), which requires that we provide our clients who are using Reppify Scores for purposes regulated by the FCRA with a prescribed notice of their duties as users of consumer reports under the FCRA. Those duties are set forth at http://www.ftc.gov/os/statutes/2user.htm; (2) Section 609, which imposes the requirement that consumer reporting agencies disclose all the information in their files on a consumer upon request; and (3) Section 604, which limits the purposes for which information may be provided. We rely upon certifications provided by our clients using Reppify Scores for purposes regulated by the FCRA that the information obtained through the Services is sought to be used for (or to be provided for) employment purposes; tenant screening purposes; purposes related to a business transaction initiated by the consumer; other permissible purposes as defined by the FCRA); and no other purpose.
