For each account, the following data will be displayed, if we have it: (1) user name; (2) password; (3) date the data was compiled; and (4) the source of the data.
    2. Consumer Service: You may query our database using your email account(s) information to determine if any of your accounts have been breached.
    3. Business Domain Service: You may query our database with your business domain name to determine if any of your employees’ or customers’ information has been compromised or is at risk of being compromised. You may also use the complete Compromised Account Information, including any passwords, to determine if the data can be used to log in to your employees’ or customers’ accounts. You may then, solely at your option, notify your employees or customers that their accounts have been compromised, initiate automatic password reset procedures, or take any other lawful action in your discretion.  
    4. Business Email Service: You may query our database using your company’s employees’ or customers’ email addresses, anonymized at your discretion (by obscuring the first to fourth characters).
    5. What We Do Not Do: AppBugs, Inc. does not illegally access data via unlawful electronic means. AppBugs, Inc. does not sell Compromised Account Information to any party. AppBugs, Inc. does not use the Compromised Account Information for any purpose other than the Security Services described herein.

        1. DISPUTES AND ARBITRATION AGREEMENT
          1. Any dispute, claim or controversy arising out of or relating to these Terms of Use and your relationship with AppBugs, Inc., or the breach, termination, enforcement, interpretation or validity thereof, including the determination of the scope or applicability of this agreement to arbitrate, shall be determined by arbitration in Seattle, Washington before one arbitrator unless you choose to conduct the arbitration telephonically as described in Section 17(c) below. The arbitration shall be administered by JAMS pursuant to its Comprehensive Arbitration Rules and Procedures and in accordance with the Expedited Procedures in those Rules. Judgment on the Award may be entered in any court having jurisdiction.  This Section shall not preclude parties from seeking provisional remedies in aid of arbitration from a court of appropriate jurisdiction or from seeking remedies in small claims court for disputes or claims within the scope of its jurisdiction.
          2. This arbitration agreement does not preclude you from bringing issues to the attention of federal, state, or local agencies, including, for example, the Federal Communications Commission. Such agencies can, if the law allows, seek relief against us on your behalf.  You agree that, by using the Security Services pursuant to these Terms of Use, you and AppBugs, Inc. each waive the right to a trial by jury or to participate in a class action.  These Terms of Use evidence a transaction in interstate commerce, and thus the Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of this provision.  This arbitration provision shall survive termination of any relationship between you and AppBugs, Inc.
          3. If you are seeking an amount less than $10,000, you may choose to have your arbitration conducted telephonically. Moreover, you are responsible for a maximum of $250 of the cost of any arbitration arising under these rules.  All other costs shall be borne by AppBugs, Inc.
