2. Permitted Use.

(c)  Customer understands that the data has not been collected for credit purposes and is not intended to be indicative of any consumer's credit worthiness, credit standing, credit capacity, or other characteristics listed in Section 1681(a) of the Fair Credit Reporting Act, 15 U.S.C. § 1681 et seq.  Customer shall not use the Services (i) as a factor in establishing an individual's eligibility for credit or insurance, (ii) in connection with underwriting individual insurance, (iii) in evaluating an individual for employment purposes, (iv) in connection with a determination of an individual's eligibility for a license or other benefit granted by a governmental authority, (v) in any way that would cause the Services to constitute a “consumer report” under the Fair Credit Reporting Act, 15 U.S.C. § 1681 et seq., or (vi) in any other manner that would cause such use of the Services to be construed as a consumer report by any pertinent governmental authority.

 

 (d)  Customer shall be solely responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of any usernames and passwords used by its employees and Customer shall not permit usernames or passwords to be shared amongst its employees. Customer shall be responsible for all use and fees associated with accessing the Services with the password, whether or not authorized by Customer.  CoreLogic may prohibit concurrent sessions with the same username and password.

4. Delivery of Data and Format. 
Customer acknowledges that the availability of data elements in the Services varies substantially from area-to-area, and circumstances may exist or arise which prevent CoreLogic from providing such data or achieving complete representation of all data elements in the Services.  Notwithstanding anything to the contrary, CoreLogic may limit or discontinue the provision of the Services for geographic locations where: (i) CoreLogic is restricted by rules, regulations, laws or governmental entities; (ii) CoreLogic has discontinued the collection of data; or (iii) CoreLogic is prohibited by third party providers.  CoreLogic may discontinue production, support, and maintenance of any Services if CoreLogic develops an upgraded version or otherwise can no longer provide such Services.

CoreLogic shall select an auditor in its sole discretion. If such auditor determines there has been a breach in Customer's compliance with the terms of this Agreement, CoreLogic may immediately terminate this Agreement and pursue its other legal remedies. Should Customer not cooperate with the CoreLogic audit request within five (5) days, Customer shall be deemed to have conclusively admitted to a material breach in Customer's compliance for which CoreLogic may immediately terminate this Agreement and pursue its legal remedies.

Failure to return or certify the destruction of the Services to CoreLogic will result in: (i) Customer's obligation to pay a perpetual license fee for the Services; or (ii) Customer's obligation to permit the CoreLogic agent to have access to Customer's premises for the retrieval of the Services and Customer shall pay the actual costs as reasonably incurred by CoreLogic to retrieve same.
