MANDATORY TERMS FOR EACH END USER (TURSS SUBSCRIBER) AGREEMENT
This is the service agreement to use ShareAble® (“Service Agreement”). Your acknowledgment and agreement to these terms, as well as the Terms and Conditions of the internet site you are accessing (“Site”), are required to access and/or use TransUnion ShareAble. You agree to be legally bound by these terms. This Service Agreement is made and entered into as by and between TransUnion Rental Screening Solutions, Inc. (“TURSS") and you/your company (“Subscriber,” “You” or “Property Owner”). In consideration of the promises and mutual covenants hereinafter set forth, TURSS and Subscriber hereto agree as follows:
1. Scope of Agreement. This Agreement applies to any of those information services which
Subscriber may desire to receive from TURSS and which TURSS offers to Subscriber via this
Site. Such information services shall herein be collectively referred to as “Services” and all
information derived therefrom shall be collectively referred to as “Services Information.”
Subscriber enters in this Agreement on behalf of itself and its affiliates under common ownership
and control, all of which are referred to collectively as Subscriber.
2. Subscriber’s business. Subscriber certifies that it is utilizing the Services solely for assisting
with making a residential or storage leasing decision.
3.1 Consumer Report Information. TURSS makes certain consumer report information services from consumer reporting databases, including but not limited to consumer credit reports, and criminal record reports (“Consumer Report Information”), available to its customers who have a
permissible purpose for receiving such information in accordance with the Fair Credit Reporting
Act (15 U.S.C. §1681 et seq.) including, without limitation, all amendments thereto (“FCRA”). For
the purposes of this Agreement, the term “adverse action” shall have the same meaning as that
term is defined in the FCRA.
3.2 FCRA Penalties. THE FCRA PROVIDES THAT ANY PERSON WHO KNOWINGLY AND
WILLFULLY OBTAINS INFORMATION ON A CONSUMER FROM A CONSUMER REPORTING
AGENCY UNDER FALSE PRETENSES SHALL BE FINED UNDER TITLE 18, OR IMPRISONED
NOT MORE THAN TWO YEARS, OR BOTH.
3.3 Subscriber Certifications. Subscriber certifies that it shall request Consumer Report Information pursuant to the written authorization of the consumer who is the subject of the Consumer Report Information. Subscriber certifies that each such written authorization will expressly authorize Subscriber to obtain the Consumer Report Information, and will contain at a minimum the subject’s name, address, social security number (where available) and signature. Subscriber shall use such Consumer Report Information solely for Subscriber’s exclusive one-time use and pursuant to the consumer’s written authorization and to use such information solely for assisting with making a residential or storage lease decision, and for no other purpose, subject however, to the additional restrictions set forth herein. Moreover, if requested by TURSS, Subscriber agrees to, and shall, individually certify the permissible purpose for each Consumer Report Information it requests. Such individual certification shall be made by Subscriber pursuant to instructions provided from time to time to Subscriber by TURSS. Nothing in this certification, or elsewhere in this Agreement, is intended to allow Subscriber to purchase Consumer Report Information for the purpose of selling or giving the report, or information contained in or derived from it, to the subject of the report, or to any other third party, and Subscriber expressly agrees to refrain from such conduct except where required by law.
3.4 All rental decisions to be made by Subscriber. Subscriber acknowledges and agrees that all
decisions of whether or not to rent property to a particular Applicant or Tenant, as well as the
length of and terms of any such rental, will be made by Subscriber. TURSS shall have no liability
to Subscriber or to any Applicant, Tenant, or other person or entity for any rental, or the failure to
rent, to any Applicant or Tenant or the terms of any such rental, regardless of whether or not
Subscriber’s decision was based on Consumer Report Information, public records, or other
information provided to Subscriber by TURSS.
3.5 Compliance with Laws. Subscriber shall be responsible for compliance with all applicable federal (including, but not limited to the FCRA) and state laws, rules, regulations and judicial actions, as now or as may become effective, to which it is subject.
3.6 Subscriber certifies it shall comply with all requirements related to the public record information (“Public Record Information”) and other applicable data use restrictions (“Data Source Requirements”) described at www.transunion.com/turss-data-source-requirements or such successor website upon which such information is provided, which may be altered by TURSS from time to time, and certifies that any distribution of the Public Record Information or a Consumer Report shall comply with and contain the state-specific requirements described at www.transunion.com/turss-data-source-requirements or such successor website upon which such information is provided, which may be altered by TURSS from time to time.
4. Ancillary Services
4.1 Fraud Prevention Services. TURSS offers several fraud prevention services that evaluate inquiry input elements against other input elements and/or against proprietary databases, to identify potential discrepancies and/or inaccuracies. Fraud prevention service messages may be delivered with Consumer Report Information as a convenience, but are not part of a consumer’s file nor are they intended to be consumer reports. In the event Subscriber obtains any fraud prevention services from TURSS in conjunction with Consumer Report Information or as a standalone service, Subscriber shall not use the fraud prevention services, in whole or in part, as a factor in establishing an individual’s creditworthiness or eligibility for credit or insurance, or employment, nor for any other purposes under the FCRA. Moreover, Subscriber shall not take any adverse action, which is based in whole or in part on the fraud prevention services, against any consumer. As a result of information obtained from the fraud prevention services, it is understood that Subscriber may choose to obtain additional information from one or more additional independent sources. Any action or decision as to any individual which is taken or made by Subscriber based solely on such additional information obtained from such additional independent source(s) shall not be deemed prohibited by this paragraph.
4.2 Scores. Subscriber may request, in writing, that TURSS provide Subscriber certain credit scores, which shall include ResidentScore, collectively referred to herein as “Score(s),” for Subscriber’s exclusive use. TURSS agrees to perform such processing as reasonably practicable. Subscriber shall use Scores only in accordance with its permissible purpose under the FCRA certified at the time of its request for such Scores; and, may store Scores solely for Subscriber’s own use in furtherance of Subscriber’s original purpose for obtaining the Scores. Subscriber shall not use the Scores for model development or model calibration and shall not reverse engineer the Scores.
4.2.1 Adverse Action Factors. Subscriber recognizes that factors other than the Scores
may be considered in making a decision as to a consumer. Such other factors
include, but are not limited to, the credit report, the individual account history,
application information, and economic factors. TURSS may provide score reason
codes to Subscriber, which are designed to indicate the principal factors that
contributed to the Score, and may be disclosed to consumers as the reasons for
taking adverse action, as required by the Equal Credit Opportunity Act ("ECOA") and
its implementing Regulation (“Reg. B”). The Score itself, when accompanied by the
corresponding reason codes, may also be disclosed to the consumer who is the
subject of the Score. However, the Score itself may not be used as the reason for
adverse action under Reg. B.
4.2.2 Confidentiality of Scores. Scores are proprietary to TURSS and without appropriate prior written consent, Scores may not be sold, licensed, copied, reused, disclosed, reproduced, revealed or made accessible, in whole or in part, to any Person except: (a) as expressly permitted herein; (b) to those employees of Subscriber with a need to know and in the course of their employment; (c) to those third party processing agents of Subscriber who have executed an agreement that limits the use of the Scores by the third party only to the use permitted to Subscriber and contains the prohibitions set forth herein regarding model development, model calibration and reverse engineering; (d) when accompanied by the corresponding reason codes, to the consumer who is the subject of the Score; or (e) as required by law. Subscriber shall not, nor permit any third party to, publicly disseminate any results of the validations or other reports derived from the Scores without prior written consent.
4.2.3 Score Performance. Certain Scores are implemented with standard minimum exclusion criteria. TURSS shall not be liable to Subscriber for any claim, injury or damage suffered directly or indirectly by Subscriber as a result of any Subscriber requested changes to the exclusion criteria which result in normally excluded records being scored by such Scores. TURSS warrants that the scoring algorithms used in the computation of the scoring services, provided under this Agreement, ("Models") are empirically derived from credit data and are a demonstrably and statistically sound method of rank-ordering candidate records with respect to the purpose of the Scores when applied to the population for which they were developed, and that no scoring algorithm used by a Score uses a "prohibited basis" as that term is defined in ECOA and Reg. B promulgated thereunder. Scores may appear on a credit report for convenience only, but is not a part of the credit report nor does it add to the information in the report on which it is based.
4.2.4 Scores without score factors / adverse action codes. Scores without score factors / adverse action codes may be made available to Subscriber in conjunction with Subscriber's request for Consumer Report Information. Subscriber hereby represents and warrants that when Subscriber requests Scores without score factors / adverse action codes, Subscriber shall not use such Scores, nor any information derived therefrom to take any adverse action as to any individual consumer.
4.2.5 Third Party Scores and Other Third Party Services. TURSS has the capability to offer scores derived from models built jointly with third parties, and other services provided by third parties, which are subject to additional warranties offered or terms imposed by such third parties. If desired by Subscriber, such third party scores and services shall be made available pursuant to separate agreement, which shall be appended as a schedule to this Agreement.
Subscriber, at Subscriber’s request and direction, Subscriber’s forms including, but not limited to,
lease forms, lease addenda, and consumer correspondence. Subscriber acknowledges and
agrees that it is Subscriber’s obligation to ensure the accuracy and completeness of the forms
and to ensure its compliance with all applicable laws related to the use of such forms. TURSS
makes no representations or warranties as to the content or use of such forms.
4.4 Subscriber Access. Subscriber agrees that TURSS may store data provided to Subscriber
hereunder on behalf of Subscriber to be used by Subscriber solely for audit or compliance
purposes and for no other purpose. All data stored on behalf of Subscriber by TURSS shall be
owned by Subscriber and may not be modified in any manner.
5. Additional Terms and Conditions
5.1 Confidentiality. Subscriber shall hold all Services Information in confidence and shall not disclose
the Services to any third party, except as required by law (i.e., an order of a court or data request
from an administrative or governmental agency with competent jurisdiction) to be disclosed;
provided however, that Subscriber shall provide TURSS ten (10) days prior written notice before
the disclosure of such information pursuant to this Paragraph 3.9. However, this restriction shall
not prohibit Subscriber from disclosing to the subject of the Consumer Report Information, who is
the subject of an adverse action, the content of the Consumer Report Information as it relates to
any such adverse action.
5.2 Safeguards. Each party shall implement, and shall take measures to maintain, reasonable and
appropriate administrative, technical, and physical security safeguards ("Safeguards”) to (a)
insure the security and confidentiality of personal information; (b) protect against anticipated
threats or hazards to the security or integrity of personal information; and (c) protect against
unauthorized access or use of personal information that could result in substantial harm or
inconvenience to any consumer. When a consumer’s first name or first initial and last name in
combination with a social security number, driver’s license or Identification Card Number, or
account number, credit or debit card number, in combination with any required security code,
access code, or password that would permit access to an individual’s financial account (“Personal
Information”), is delivered to Subscriber, Subscriber shall implement and maintain reasonable
security procedures and practices appropriate to the nature of the information and to protect the
Personal Information from unauthorized access, destruction, use, modification, or disclosure.
Subscriber shall notify TURSS in writing as soon as practicable but in no event later than fortyeight hours after which Subscriber becomes aware of any potential and/or actual
misappropriation of, and/or any unauthorized disclosures of, any information provided to
Subscriber by TURSS, including, but not limited to theft, loss or interception of Consumer Report
Information, unauthorized use of TURSS subscriber codes and passwords, unauthorized entry to
the facilities where TURSS data may have been accessible, or unauthorized release of or access
to TURSS data by an employee or Agent of Subscriber. Subscriber shall fully cooperate with
TURSS in any communications to consumers regarding the data incident and mitigating, to the
extent practicable, any damages due to such misappropriation and/or unauthorized disclosure.
Such cooperation shall include, but not necessarily be limited to, allowing TURSS to participate in
the investigation of the cause and extent of such misappropriation and/or unauthorized
disclosure. Such cooperation shall not relieve Subscriber of any liability it may have as a result of
such a misappropriation and/or unauthorized disclosure. Moreover, without TURSS’s prior
consent, Subscriber shall make no public notification, including but not limited to press releases
or consumer notifications, of the potential or actual occurrence of such misappropriation and/or
unauthorized disclosure of any such information provided to Subscriber.
5.3 Authorized Requests. Subscriber shall use the Services: (a) for its certified permissible purpose
above to assist in making a residential or storage lease decision; (b) solely for Subscriber’s
exclusive one-time use; and (c) subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement. Subscriber
shall not request, obtain or use Services for any other purpose including, but not limited to, for the
purpose of selling, leasing, renting or otherwise providing information obtained under this
Agreement to any other party, whether alone, in conjunction with Subscriber’s own data, or
otherwise in any service which is derived from the Services. Services shall be requested by, and
disclosed by Subscriber to only Subscriber’s designated and authorized employees having a
need to know and only to the extent necessary to enable Subscriber to use the Services in
accordance with this Agreement. Subscriber shall ensure that such Subscriber designated and
authorized employees shall not attempt to obtain any Services on themselves, associates, or any
other person except in the exercise of their official duties.
5.4 Third Party Intermediaries. In the event Subscriber will utilize a third party intermediary (e.g.,
Internet service provider or other network provider) for the purpose of receiving Services,
Subscriber shall first enter into an agreement with such third party under which such third party
acts solely as a network conduit for the delivery of the Services to Subscriber and which prohibits
such third party from using, or otherwise accessing, the Services for any other purpose.
Subscriber shall be solely liable for any actions or omissions of such third parties which result in a
breach of this Agreement.

exclusively in TURSS. TURSS reserves all rights not explicitly granted to Subscriber under this
