Welcome to the Token of Trust® platform. The Token of Trust® End User Terms of Service (the “Service Terms,” “Terms,” “User Terms”) are a legally binding agreement between Token of Trust, LLC (“Token of Trust,” “we,” “our,” or “us”) and you (“you,” “your” or “yours”), and describe the terms that apply to your use of Token of Trust’s services, whether through a widget hosted on a third party site, use of a product that integrates with our services, or our website at https://tokenoftrust.com (collectively, our “System” or “Service”), which is owned and operated by us.
We may revise and update the End User Terms of Service from time to time at our sole discretion, and will post any updates to the End User Terms of Service on the Site. Your continued use of our Site or System, or any other service provided by us means that you accept and agree to the modified End User Terms of Service. You agree that we will not be liable to you or any third party for any modification, suspension or discontinuance of the System or any portion of the System. We hope that you will continue using our Products, but if you do not agree to our updated Terms and no longer want to be a part of Token of Trust, you can deactivate or erase your account at any time.
Customer’s Choices and Instructions
An organization or other third party that we refer to in these User Terms as “Customer” has invited you to sign up for a Token of Trust® account. This Customer has separately agreed to our Customer Terms of Service or entered into a written agreement with us (in either case, the “Contract”) that permitted Customer to extend the service for you and others to use. Each individual granted access to use the System, including you, is an “Authorized User”.
When you use a Customer site or application (collectively, “Applications” or “App”), the Customer may ask for your permission to access your content on Token of Trust (“User Content”). In accordance with our Customer Contract, our agreement with that Customer application will control how Applications can use User Content. When an Authorized User grants permission for Applications to access User Content, you acknowledge and agree that any User Content stored by Customer is owned by Customer. Customer is therefore responsible for proper handling and management of Authorized User Data. You agree not to hold Token of Trust liable for Customer handling or mishandling of User Content.
The Relationship Between You, Customer and Us
AS BETWEEN US AND CUSTOMER, YOU AGREE THAT IT IS SOLELY CUSTOMER’S RESPONSIBILITY TO (A) INFORM YOU AND ANY AUTHORIZED USERS OF ANY RELEVANT CUSTOMER POLICIES AND PRACTICES AND ANY SETTINGS THAT MAY IMPACT THE PROCESSING OF CUSTOMER DATA; (B) OBTAIN ANY RIGHTS, PERMISSIONS OR CONSENTS FROM YOU AND ANY AUTHORIZED USERS THAT ARE NECESSARY FOR THE LAWFUL USE OF CUSTOMER DATA AND THE OPERATION OF THE SERVICES; (C) ENSURE THAT THE TRANSFER AND PROCESSING OF CUSTOMER DATA UNDER THE CONTRACT IS LAWFUL; AND (D) RESPOND TO AND RESOLVE ANY DISPUTE WITH YOU AND ANY AUTHORIZED USER RELATING TO OR BASED ON CUSTOMER DATA, THE SERVICES OR CUSTOMER’S FAILURE TO FULFILL THESE OBLIGATIONS. TOKEN OF TRUST MAKES NO REPRESENTATIONS OR WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND, WHETHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, TO YOU RELATING TO THE SERVICES, WHICH ARE PROVIDED TO YOU ON AN “AS IS” AND “ AS AVAILABLE” BASIS.

Token of Trust® Reputation Report
As described above, once you have successfully registered a Token of Trust account, you will be deemed “connected” or have a “pending verification” from us. A registered Token of Trust account begins with the creation of a Reputation Report. Your Reputation Report is a collection results derived after analyzing data extracted from one or more Identity Sources you’ve permitted access to. Customers you’ve permitted to access your Reputation Report may use the Reputation Report to help inform Customer decisions. After your user content has been reviewed by our system and once our verification criteria are met, your status may change to include a variety of verification credentials (such as “online activity verified” or “real world verified.”) For each additional Identity Source you link to your Account through successfully signing in, you represent and warrant that you are the owner of the additional Identity Source. Once your Account has been created, your Reputation Report will be also be created. In order to create your Reputation Report, the System will evaluate, through our algorithms, what information is available through each account and will run that information against itself to create either a “Builder of Confidence” or a “Reason to be Careful.” In the event you want to limit others ability to review your Reputation Report, you may sign on to your Account through the Site.
We may provide you with the ability to contest or disclaim information contained in the Reputation Report by following the instructions provided by the System. You agree, however, that we do not have any obligation to update information in the Reputation Report following your inquiry and there is certain information contained in the Reputation Report that cannot be modified by us. In some cases, the only way to update your Reputation Report is through your conduct on the other online platforms linked to your Account at the time.
We do not independently investigate any information contained in the Reputation Reports and all information is generated by an algorithm and not reviewed prior to the creation of the Reputation Report. TOKEN OF TRUST DISCLAIMS ANY LIABILITY FOR RELIANCE ON INFORMATION CONTAINED IN REPUTATION REPORTS OR ANY SPECIFIC INFORMATION CONTAINED IN BUILDERS OF CONFIDENCE OR REASONS TO BE CAREFUL.
Payment for Additional Identity Verification
We may offer the ability for you to continue to build your Reputation Report by adding additional identity sources to your account, such as a driver’s license or passport, for a fee. We may utilize a third party to process all payment information, but by providing your payment information to us, you represent that you are the owner of the account with authority to make the required payment. If the payment is rejected, we may not offer you the ability to provide additional information and in the event we provide any additional services for a fee and you fail to continue to make payments, we may downgrade your account to the free level.
Foreign Transaction Fees. We may use credit card processors or banks outside the United States to process your transactions. In some instances, your bank or credit card issuer may charge you a foreign transaction or similar fee or charge. Before purchasing any Services, please check with your bank or credit card issuer for more information about its policies regarding foreign transaction and similar fees and charges.
