ID Theft Protection Services Provided:
1. DETECT POTENTIAL IDENTITY AND FRAUD THREATS
- Personally Identifiable Information (PII)
- Compromised Credentials monitors for a combination of email address /username /password /security questions located within:
- Hacker account dump sites
- Hacktivist forums
- Data leaks
- Malware logs
Alerts are sent with event details, also listed within resolution console and most often includes source of breach (from where the data was harvested).
High-Risk Transactions monitors a Cardholder’s high-risk transactions with more than 300 of the nation’s largest companies to uncover and thwart account takeover attempts. Knowledge-Based Authentication (questions only an individual should know about themselves such as what street they lived on in 2009) used by organizations across industries limits the risk of identity theft or account takeover. Alerts are sent when a series of knowledge-based authentication questions are generated to validate the Cardholder’s identity (i.e. when accessing a credit report). Monitored transactions include:
- Credit cards
- Bank accounts
- Brokerage accounts
- Healthcare portals
- Workplace intranets
- Other services (e.g. peer-to-peer fund transfers)
Dark Web Monitoring provides monitoring of underground webpages people can visit without third parties being able to trace the location of the web visitors or the webpage publisher. Dark web sites make up about .01% of the Internet and are intentionally hidden or protected by encryption technologies and not accessible via standard web browsers.
Single Bureau Credit Monitoring monitors a Cardholder’s TransUnion credit file for changes that could indicate fraud such as new credit inquiries, an address change or new credit account(s) opened in their name. In order to use this service, Cardholders must provide some personal information, such as name, address, date of birth, and SSN, and undergo either digital verification via text or knowledge-based authentication. ID Theft Protection sends alert notification emails, such as change of address alerts, anytime potentially unauthorized inquiries or suspicious activities on Cardholder’s credit file are detected so they can take immediate action to minimize damage.
Small Business ID Theft Protection upgrades ID Theft Protection identity monitoring services by adding URL and Domain monitoring to the existing list of monitored items. URL and Domain monitoring searches for the Cardholder’s business URL and domain (limited to 10 domains) within corporate data breaches, malicious third-party botnets and criminal forums.
2. RECEIVE ALERTS OF SUSPICIOUS ACTIVITY
- Email Addresses
- Debit/Credit Cards
- Loyalty/Affinity Cards
- Bank Account Numbers
- Passport Numbers
- Medical and Vehicle Insurance Cards
- Driver’s Licenses
- National Identity Numbers/Social Security Numbers
- New Lines of Credit
- Address Changes
3. RESOLVE IDENTITY THREATS WITH SELF-SERVICE RESOLUTION OR SPECIALIST SUPPORT
Self-Service ID Theft Resolution Kit is a self-service resolution document which informs Cardholders of the different forms of ID theft, and how to resolve each situation. Resolution tools in the kit include preventive measures, step-by-step guides and sample letters to be sent to collection agencies.
Access to Resolutions Specialists which assigns a personal case manager to help take care of everything.
Self-Service ID Theft Wizard provides step-by-step advice for many identity theft scenarios that Cardholders may face. All ID Theft Protection users have access to the Identity Theft Protection Kit found in the Profile section of their portal, which explains the many forms of identity theft and provides protective measures anyone can take to limit their risk. The kit also contains a Federal Trade Commission sample affidavit form, as well as sample letter templates for filing disputes in cases of identity theft or fraud.
Online Fraud Alerts allow Cardholders to place a statement on their credit report that instructs lenders to contact the Cardholder before issuing new credit. This makes it more difficult for an identity thief to open new accounts in their name. When Cardholders place a fraud alert with one bureau, the other two bureaus are informed, and the alert is then placed on all three bureau files. Fraud alert placement is free, and alerts stay on the Cardholder credit files for one year.

This MasterRental Guide to Benefits is not, by itself, a policy or contract of insurance or other contract.
Benefits are provided to you, the Account Holder, at no additional charge. Non-insurance services may have associated costs, which will be your responsibility (for example, legal referrals are free, but the lawyer’s fee is your responsibility).
The insurance benefits are provided under a group policy issued by New Hampshire Insurance Company, an AIG company. This MasterRental Guide to Benefits is a summary of benefits provided to you. The above Key Terms (as supplemented or modified by the Additional Key Terms) and EOC are governed by the Group Policy.
Effective date of benefits: Effective October 27, 2020, this MasterRental Guide to Benefits replaces all prior disclosures, program descriptions, advertising, and brochures by any party. The Policyholder and the insurer reserve the right to change the benefits and features of these programs at any time. Notice will be provided for any changes.
Cancellation: The Policyholder can cancel these benefits at any time or choose not to renew the insurance coverage for all Cardholders. If the Policyholder does cancel these benefits, you will be notified in advance. If the insurance company terminates, cancels, or chooses not to renew the coverage to the Policyholder, you will be notified as soon as is practicable. Insurance benefits will still apply for any benefits you were eligible for prior to the date of such terminations, cancellation, or non-renewal, subject to the terms and conditions of coverage.
Benefits to you: These benefits apply only to the Cardholder whose cards are issued by U.S. financial institutions. The United States for purposes of this section is defined as the fifty (50) United States, the District of Columbia, American Samoa, Puerto Rico, Guam, and the U.S. Virgin Islands. No person or entity other than the Cardholder shall have any legal or equitable right, remedy, or claim for benefits, insurance proceeds and Damages under or arising out of these programs.

Misrepresentation and Fraud: Benefits shall be void if the Cardholder has concealed or misrepresented any material facts concerning this coverage.
Dispute Resolution – Arbitration: This EOC requires binding arbitration if there is an unresolved dispute concerning this EOC (including the cost of, lack of, or actual repair or replacement arising from a loss or breakdown). Under this Arbitration provision, You give up your right to resolve any dispute arising from this EOC by a judge and/or a jury. You also agree not to participate as a class representative or class member in any class action litigation, any class arbitration or any consolidation of individual arbitrations. In arbitration, a group of three (3) arbitrators (each of whom is an independent, neutral third party) will give a decision after hearing the parties’ positions. The decision of a majority of the arbitrators will determine the outcome of the arbitration and the decision of the arbitrators shall be final and binding and cannot be reviewed or changed by, or appealed to, a court of law.
To start arbitration, the disputing party must make a written demand to the other party for arbitration. This demand must be made within one (1) year of the earlier of the date the loss occurred or the dispute arose. The parties will each separately select an arbitrator. The two (2) arbitrators will select a third arbitrator called an “umpire.” Each party will each pay the expense of the arbitrator selected by that party. The expense of the umpire will be shared equally by the parties. Unless otherwise agreed to by the parties, the arbitration will take place in the county and state in which you live. The arbitration shall be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act (9 U.S.C.A. § 1 et. seq.) and not by any state law concerning arbitration. The rules of the American Arbitration Association (www.adr.org) will apply to any arbitration under this EOC. The laws of the state of New York (without giving effect to its conflict of law principles) govern all matters arising out of or relating to this EOC and
all transactions contemplated by this EOC, including, without limitation, the validity, interpretation, construction, performance and enforcement of this EOC.
Due Diligence: All parties are expected to exercise due diligence to avoid or diminish any theft, loss or Damage to the property insured under these programs. “Due diligence” means the performance of all vigilant activity, attentiveness, and care that would be taken by a reasonable and prudent person in the same or similar circumstances in order to guard and protect the item.

Any party or Cardholder who receives payment under these benefits must transfer to the insurance company his or her rights to recovery against any other party or person and must do everything necessary to secure these rights and must do nothing that would jeopardize them, or these rights will be recovered from the Cardholder.
Salvage: If an item is not repairable, the claim Administrator may request that the Cardholder or gift recipient send the item to the Administrator for salvage at the Cardholder’s or gift recipient’s expense. Failure to remit the requested item for salvage to the claim Administrator may result in denial of the claim.
Other Insurance: Coverage is secondary to and in excess of any other applicable insurance or indemnity available to You. Coverage is limited to only those amounts not covered by any other insurance or indemnity. It is subject to the conditions, limitations, and exclusions described in this document. In no event will this coverage apply as contributing insurance. This Other Insurance clause will take precedence over a similar clause found in other insurance or indemnity language.
Non-Contribution: In no event will these insurance benefits apply as contributing insurance. The non-contribution insurance clause will take precedence over the non-contribution clause found in any other insurance policies.
Severability of Provisions: If in the future any one or more of the provisions of this MasterRental Guide to Benefits is, to any extent and for any reason, held to be invalid or unenforceable, then such provision(s) shall be deemed “severable” from the remaining provisions of the Guide. In that event, all other provisions of this Guide shall remain valid and enforceable.
