Initial LevelCredit Terms of Service

Services

LevelCredit and its Trusted Partners provide tenant, lease and rent verification services, rent reporting services, credit retrieval and monitoring services, and qualified offers from our Partners that are partially based on these services.

LevelCredit provides Tenants with the ability to report rent payments to the major credit bureaus (the "Reporting Services"). Tenant acknowledges that each bureau has unique approaches to rental payment data furnishing and reporting. Rental payments and Utility payments, if elected, will be reported to major credit bureaus for any tenant who connects their bank account to RentTrack, who identifies Rental or Utility payments, and who verifies their identity within RentTrack. If desired, Tenants have the ability to "opt-out" of the Reporting Services by cancelling their subscription or contacting support. While LevelCredit takes all commercially reasonable steps to report data correctly to the credit bureaus according to their methods and recommendations, LevelCredit cannot guarantee the accuracy of the data on Tenant's credit report. Tenant understands that it may take up to three months for rental payment data to appear on credit bureau records. If Tenant deems any payment data found on their credit report incorrect, LevelCredit will assist Tenant in investigating the issue upon receipt of a request from Tenant. In addition, Tenant may file a dispute with LevelCredit (RentTrack, Inc.) or directly with the credit bureaus. Tenant understands that a credit freeze does not prevent LevelCredit from sending data to the credit bureaus. A credit-freeze only prevents the credit bureaus from providing LevelCredit and others with information from Tenant's credit profile. The data displayed by LevelCredit regarding rental history is only a representation of the Tenant's tradeline, and not actual data from the credit bureaus. Tenant should review their credit profile at each bureau in order to verify the accuracy of the rent reporting.

In addition to the services above, we may collect Tenant information, including but not limited to information retrieved from integrated accounting systems from RentTrack's Property Managers, our application, the connected bank account, and the credit bureau such as credit score, credit profile data, or consumer entered or verified information such date of birth. Based on this information, we may present Tenant with offers from Trusted Partners (the "Prequalified Affiliate Offers"). These offers may be presented through a variety of communication channels, including but not limited to email (if Tenant has not unsubscrived), Site ad placements, telephone and others. These offers may be presented to you by LevelCredit, RentTrack, or directly by our affiliates.

With respect to Prequalified Affiliate Offers, we do not guarantee that you will be presented with offers for any particular types of products or services or that you will meet the approval criteria for any particular offer. Furthermore, we should not be misconstrued as offering these products to you directly.

LevelCredit will receive Tenant's credit score from one or more credit bureaus. All of our Scores may not be used to grant credit.

The Services and Affiliate Offers are not intended to provide any credit repair, legal, tax or financial advice. We cannot guarantee any improvement in credit scores. LevelCredit may offer a refund on our subscription services, should LevelCredit fail to deliver the service we agreed to deliver on. LevelCredit's satisfaction guarantee cannot be claimed as a result of your credit score not improving. Tenant acknowledges that LevelCredit is not a Credit Bureau and does not have direct influence over any aspect of credit, credit profiles, or how credit scores are calculated.

User Content You Share Becomes Public

Subject to our Privacy Policy, you understand that once you post User Content, your content may become public.

In addition, we may be required to disclose your User Content to third parties if we have a good faith belief that access, use, preservation or disclosure of such User Content is reasonably necessary to (a) satisfy any applicable law, rule, regulation, legal process or enforceable governmental request, (b) enforce these Terms of Service, including investigation of potential violations thereof, (c) detect, prevent, or otherwise address fraud, security or technical issues, or (d) protect against imminent harm to the rights, property or safety of RentTrack, its users or the public as required or permitted by law.

Obligation to Provide Accurate and Complete Information Where Required

In order to provide the Reporting Services and Prequalified Affiliate Offers, LevelCredit is obliged to employ reasonable authentication methods to verify the identity of Tenants and accuracy of the Lease and related Payments. In order to use the Services, you agree to: (i) provide information about yourself and any associated business that is true, accurate, and complete as prompted by the Service's sign up process, (ii) where applicable and appropriate, maintain and update your information to keep it true, accurate, and complete, and (iii) allow us to contact your Landlord or Property Manager, as necessary, to confirm details of your payments and lease. In the event that you falsify information, or provide inaccurate, untrue, or incomplete information, LevelCredit may, at its sole discretion, suspend or terminate your access to the Reporting Services and deny any future access to the Reporting Services. You may not use the Reporting Services for any illegal purpose or in any manner inconsistent with the terms and conditions of this agreement.

Refunds

For subscription payments (those payments made for the Services such as credit monitoring), LevelCredit will issue a full refund if the customer is not satisfied with the service. As stated above, LevelCredit's satisfaction guarantee cannot be claimed as a result of your credit score not improving. If the subscription was for rent payment reporting via a bank connection, we will first attempt to finish the tradeline if a sufficient number of rent payments have been reported. However, any entry created on the consumer's credit report may be deleted if insufficient payments were reported, and the consumer will not receive any credit for their rent payments.

Purchase Policy

Some of the Reporting Services mentioned in this agreement may only be available for a fee. You will only be charged for fee-based services after we obtain your consent to pay such fees. We reserve the right to change fees for access to the Reporting Services, or to change what features are available at different fee levels, at any time. You shall pay all fees incurred through your use of the Reporting Services at the rates in effect for the billing period in which such Services are delivered.

As a Tenant, you may have the opportunity to purchase additional Credit Services beyond any free or paid Services we provide. These additional services are not related to the Prequalified Affiliate Offers, and may display different credit information than we use for the Prequalified Affiliate Offers.

Either you or LevelCredit may cancel use of the Reporting Services with or without cause at any time. You may cancel the Service by emailing ask@levelcredit.com, or by cancelling the Subscription within the application.

Privacy

For information about our privacy policy and data security practices, please read our Privacy Policy. Your use of this Site is subject to our Privacy Policy. The policy explains how RentTrack treats your personal information when you access the Services. The privacy policy can be updated from time to time.

Specific Consents Granted by your Enrollment

At the time that you verify your identity, you agree that you are providing to us the following specific consents (in addition to being subject to this Agreement):

You understand that by enrolling in RentTrack services, you are providing 'written instructions' to RentTrack, Inc under the Fair Credit Reporting Act authorizing RentTrack, Inc to obtain information from your personal credit profile or other information from Experian, TransUnion, or Equifax. You authorize RentTrack, Inc to obtain such information to verify your identity, provide you with your score and aggregated credit information, and to enable rent reporting to major credit bureaus. You may opt-out of rent reporting at any time by logging into your account and changing your settings or cancelling your subscription.

Note that LevelCredit does not extend credit to residents. LevelCredit merely reports on the status of rent payments. If we are unable to verify the identity of all parties involved in a transaction, LevelCredit reserves the right to deny use of our Reporting Service and any additional service or product offered by LevelCredit, in accordance to KYC (Know Your Customer) and AML (Anti Money Laundering) payment processing regulations, or for any fair reason that we may deem will materially affect the business. However, at no time should this denial be misconstrued as a denial of credit.
