1. DESCRIPTION OF THE SERVICES
The Services provide you with information and interactive tools which may help you manage your personal finances. These Services you select may include your credit report, credit report summary, credit score, monitoring or alert services, tools to help you better understand your options, suggestions, tips and other educational materials, and information about products and services that might be of interest to you. Services will be provided via our website, including via mobile applications, where available. Some Services will be provided through our third party processing agent, Equifax Information Services, LLC ("Processing Agent"). You may select from two types of Services, with features described below.
(a) Quicken Free Credit Score Services
The Quicken Free Credit Score Services is a free version of the Services available to Quicken customers. This service includes the quarterly single-bureau credit score with periodic updates and tracking as described on the website.
- Prior to September 2017, some users will be provided a credit score based upon the Equifax Risk Score model (“ERS”).
- Beginning September 2017, the Quicken Free Credit Score will be VantageScore 3.0, based on the VantageScore model.
This VantageScore is a VantageScore 3.0 based on Equifax data. Third parties use many different types of credit scores and are likely to use a different type of credit score to assess your creditworthiness.
(b) Additional Quicken Credit Products
Additional Quicken credit products may be made available to you on our website. Please review the specific features and associated fees before you purchase.
