Seal Removal/Account Cancellation
Due to the nature of the services provided, Trust Guard reserves the right to remove seals or widgets from any website and/or cancel any account for any reason, at their discretion, without prior notice or notification.
These terms and conditions are applicable to you upon your accessing the site and/or completing the registration or shopping process. These terms and conditions, or any part of them, may be updated or terminated by Trust Guard without notice at any time, for any reason. If you are a client, you can terminate the terms by closing your account. The provisions relating to Copyrights, Email Policy, Trademark, Warranty Disclaimer, Participation Disclaimer, Limitation of Liability, Indemnification and Miscellaneous, shall survive any termination.
If you are a client and you sign up for multiple years in advance, you are in effect receiving a significant prepayment discount in good faith that you plan on remaining a member for the full amount of time you’ve paid for. However, if for some reason, you decide to prematurely cancel your account, any rights to receive a prepayment discount will be forfeit, and your refund amount will be determined based on the monthly rate for your particular service plan, multiplied by the total number of months of service used. In other words, you will be charged what you would have paid if you hadn’t prepaid initially.
In order to alert you of any failed scan results or other notifications that may apply to your account, Trust Guard may deliver notice to you by means of text messaging, e-mail, or by other reliable delivery methods.
To opt out, remove or modify information you have provided, please call (877) 848-2731 or submit a support ticket.
Trust Guard pays affiliate commissions on all affiliate sales generated by the Trust Guard Affiliate Program. All commissions are based on a one-year cookie. The minimum payout is $50. All commissions are paid out after 60 days in order to accommodate our money-back guarantee.
If for some reason we are unable to make an affiliate payment, we will try to use reasonable means to contact you in an effort to rectify any issues; however, if we cannot get a hold of you for a full year, any funds due will be forfeit.
Client Insurance Policies
As a Trust Guard client, you can add a Cyber Insurance policy to your account. While your policy can be accessed via your Trust Guard control panel, the actual insurance policy is independently issued and managed by the Buckner group – a 3rd party, nationwide insurance broker. Your insurance policy will be issued directly to you or your company by Buckner, and any inquiries or breaches will be handled directly through them. You agree to the terms and conditions under the Cyber Insurance policy issued to you and acknowledge that you understand that certain policy restrictions apply. If you have any questions about your Insurance Policy, would like to increase the limits of your existing policy, or are concerned that you may have experienced a breach, please contact Brandon Roberson at firstname.lastname@example.org or call him directly at (801) 937-6789.
