5. FICO Business Solutions That Process Personal Data
A. Business Solutions. We sell, license, host, and distribute software solutions, such as predictive models and analytics, which are built with depersonalized (anonymized or pseudonymised) data. Our clients use the solutions for their business purposes. Some solutions are operational: these solutions assist a company in its resource planning, financial projections, and record-keeping, for example. Other solutions facilitate the processing of consumers’ personal data. Those solutions are designed to be used for:
- New Customer Acquisition – to predict which consumers are likely to buy certain products or services; marketing solutions process personal data, which may include the age, gender, marital status, and buying patterns of financially and demographically similar consumers, to determine whether a company’s products and services match other consumers’ product preferences and their inclination and ability to purchase the products and services.
- Credit and Insurance Eligibility – to predict which consumers and current customers are good candidates for financial, insurance, or retail services; credit risk solutions may process personal data, as permitted by law, from (i) an applicant’s credit application, (ii) an applicant’s past credit history (including loan, telecommunication, and rental payments), (iii) an applicant’s cash flow, and (iv) social media, to assess an applicant’s credit or insurance risk.
- Financial Fraud Detection and Prevention – to verify the identity of an applicant for credit, and to prevent fraudulent financial transactions; some financial fraud solutions process personal data from a consumer’s application and the consumer’s past credit activity to verify the identity of the consumer requesting credit; other financial fraud solutions process personal data about a current customer’s past shopping and purchasing behavior, to protect the customer from unauthorized access to the customer’s accounts.
- Healthcare Fraud Detection – to identify and prevent fraudulent or improper healthcare transactions; healthcare fraud solutions process personal data about individual health care claimants from the claimant’s healthcare provider’s claims records and the claim records of other health care providers, to identify fraudulent behaviors by the health care claimant.
- Customer Management – to determine which customers would benefit from enhanced or additional services; customer management solutions may process personal data about a customer’s payment history, past purchases, and customer service interactions to match customer expectations with available services.
- Debt Management – to determine whether debt counseling, debt settlement, debt collection, litigation, or other activity is appropriate for a credit grantor or debt buyer; debt collection solutions may process personal data from the data subject, credit bureaus, and other debt collectors, to assess the size and age of the consumer’s debt, the consumer’s past payment history, and the consumer’s current financial situation to find an appropriate response to a consumer’s credit delinquency.
B. Automated Decisions, Including Profiling. FICO predictive models can be used to make automated decisions, including profiling. In building and updating these models, we review the data sets used to address any prejudicial elements, and reviews the correlations indicated by the model to address any non-empirical or non-intuitive results. When we host the models, we audit the performance of our algorithms that drive these models, and regularly review the accuracy and relevance of the automated decision-making, including profiling, that results from the use of the models. We have strict procedures and measures designed to prevent errors, inaccuracies, or discrimination on the basis of special category data. The outcome of such measures is fed back into the system design.
Some FICO models utilize explainable artificial intelligence (AI) in model development and model operation. One component of AI, called machine learning, adapts through progressive learning algorithms to let the data do the programming. Machine learning finds structure and regularities in data so that the algorithms acquire the ability to classify data and predict outcomes. Machine learning algorithms are built with relevant variables called “features”, and the process of extracting features is called “feature engineering”. This technique of deriving features, which can be automated, is a way to inject expert knowledge into the process of building and deploying accurate machine learning models. Explainable AI inspects relationships among features that drive model outputs and the decisions based on these models. We observe the model output of all expert derived features, and the relationships predicted by the models, to prevent bias, ensure palatability, prevent overfitting, and avoid spurious correlation learned through historical data.
6. Opting Out of Receiving Information You Have Consented to Receiving as a Registrant of myFICO, myFICO Forums, FICO Community, or FICO Marketplace
A. Update or Opt Out. If you have registered to participate in industry discussions and/or receive marketing and industry materials, as a myFICO customer, a registrant at myFICO Forums, or a registrant at FICO Analytic Cloud in the FICO Community or the FICO Marketplace, you may update your preferences, or revoke your consent and unsubscribe at any time by clicking the unsubscribe link in the footer of all FICO email messages, or by contacting us at the FICO Trust Center.

We do not honor electronic do-not-track signals sent by a consumer’s browser when you visit FICO’s or myFICO’s websites or other mechanisms that would give you an ability to exercise choice regarding the collection of personal information about your online activities over time and across third party websites.
C. No Discrimination. The status of a FICO or myFICO customer will not be affected if the customer declines to sign up to receive myFICO emails or declines to register as a myFICO Forum user. Also, the status of a myFICO customer will not be affected if the customer signs up to receive myFICO emails or registers as a myFICO Forums user, but declines to give consent, or gives and later revokes consent, to receive myFICO emails.

9. The EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework, including the United Kingdom, and the Swiss-US. Privacy Shield Framework
FICO’s certification means we have committed to the principles of the Privacy Shield:
- Notice. We will notify you about the purposes for which we collect and use personal data about you. This Policy explains the types of third parties to which we disclose the personal data; the choices and means you have for limiting our use and disclosure; and how you can contact us with any inquiries or complaints.
- Choice. We will not disclose your personal data to a third party for a purpose incompatible with the purpose for which it was originally collected, or subsequently authorized by you, without your consent. For sensitive information (“special categories of personal data”), we will get your explicit (opt in) consent if the information is to be disclosed to a third party or used for a purpose other than its original purpose or the purpose authorized subsequently by you. You may withdraw your consent at any time by contacting us as described in this Policy.
- Onward Transfer. If we transfer personal data to a third party that is acting as an agent, we will (i) transfer such data only for limited and specified purposes; (ii) ascertain that the agent is obligated to provide at least the same level of privacy protection as is required by the Principles; (iii) take reasonable and appropriate steps to ensure that the agent effectively processes the personal data transferred in a manner consistent with the organization’s obligations under the Principles; (iv) require the agent to notify the organization if it makes a determination that it can no longer meet its obligation to provide the same level of protection as is required by the Principles; (v) upon notice, including under (iv), take reasonable and appropriate steps to stop and remediate unauthorized processing; and (vi) provide a summary or a representative copy of the relevant privacy provisions of its contract with that agent to the Department of Commerce upon request.

- Data Integrity and Purpose Limitation. We will collect and retain personal data that is relevant to the purposes of processing, and not in a way incompatible with the purposes for which it has been collected or subsequently authorized by you. We will take reasonable steps to ensure that personal data is reliable for its intended use, accurate, complete, and current.
- Access. You will have access to personal data about yourself that we hold, and you may correct amend, or delete that information where it is inaccurate, except where the burden or expense of providing access would be disproportionate to the privacy risks in question, or where the rights of persons other than you would be violated. For security reasons, we will take steps to authenticate your identity before providing you with access to personal data.
- Recourse, Enforcement and Liability. We will maintain a mechanism to provide that your complaints or disputes are investigated and resolved, and damages awarded where applicable law so provides. We will remedy problems arising out of our failure to comply with the Privacy Shield Principles. If you believe we have violated our obligations to you under the Privacy Shield Principles, you should first raise the claimed violation directly with us, and we will respond within 45 days of receiving a complaint. If we are unable to resolve your complaint, you should next raise the issue through your Data Protection Authority to the U.S. Department of Commerce and afford the Department of Commerce an opportunity to use best efforts to resolve the issue, at no cost to you. Then, if such violation still remains fully or partially unremedied, you may contact JAMS, which is an international dispute resolution provider, at no cost to you. JAMS may be reached by Internet at @jamsadr.com, phone 800.352.5267, or mail to JAMS, 620 8th Avenue, 34th Floor, New York, New York 10018.

PART THREE – GENERAL.
7.1 Customer Agreement Term. Unless terminated earlier in accordance with the termination provisions contained in the Agreement, the term of this Customer Agreement commences on the Effective Date of the applicable Order Form and will continue in full force and effect for so long as there is an outstanding applicable Order Form or Statement of Work pursuant to this Customer Agreement in full force and effect.
7.2 SaaS Service Subscription Term. Client hereby agrees to subscribe to the SaaS Service and related Support Services for the duration of the full term of the subscription term for the SaaS Services set forth in the particular Order Forms (each, a “Subscription Term”). Each Order Form may be individually suspended, and, in addition to any suspension, terminated, in each case, pursuant to the provisions contained in the Order Form and Sections 7.3 and 7.4 below; in which case, unless otherwise suspended or terminated, all other Order Forms shall remain in full force and effect. Upon the effective date of termination, Client’s access to the particular SaaS Services will be terminated.
7.3 Suspension of Services. If Client fails to pay the applicable fees for the SaaS Services or Professional Services by the due date, or is in breach of Section 2.1 (SaaS Service and Documentation) or Section 2.2 (Conditions of Use), Fair Isaac may at its option immediately suspend the provision of the SaaS Services or Professional Services, provided that the foregoing does limit or modify Fair Isaac’s right to terminate for breach in addition to its right to suspend the SaaS Service or Professional Services. In addition, Fair Isaac may suspend access to or use of any portion or all of the SaaS Services immediately upon notice to Client if Fair Isaac determines: (a) use of the services (i) poses a security risk to the SaaS Services or any third party, (ii) could adversely impact Fair Isaac’s systems, the SaaS Services or the systems or content of any third party, (iii) could subject Fair Isaac or any third party to liability, or (iv) could be fraudulent; (b) Client is breach of the Agreement, including with respect to any payment obligations; or (c) Client has ceased to operate in the ordinary course, made an assignment for the benefit of creditors or similar disposition of assets, or becomes the subject of any bankruptcy, reorganization, liquidation, dissolution or similar proceeding. Suspension or termination (or any cancelation) does not relieve Client of any payment obligations hereunder, and all such obligations remain in full force and effect. Accordingly, if Fair Isaac suspends access to or use of any portion or all of the SaaS Services Client remains responsible for all fees and charges incurred during the period of suspension, and Client will not be entitled to any refunds or credits for any period of suspension.
7.4 Termination. FICO may terminate any Order Form for any reason by providing Client at least 30 days’ advance notice. Either party may terminate an Order Form for cause if the other party is in material breach of the Order Form (or the terms of this Customer Agreement) and the material breach remains uncured for a period of 30 days from receipt of notice by the other party.

(iv) Multiple Month Commitment (“Multiple Month Commitment” means a Subscription for a fixed initial period of more than one month (e.g., 3 months, 6 months, 12 months) provided for a pre-paid upfront fee for the initial period and that automatically renews for renewal periods of the same duration and for a pre-paid upfront fee for each renewal period unless canceled.

9. Other Rights and Obligations.
9.1 Reservation of Rights. Notwithstanding anything contained in the Agreement to the contrary and subject only to the limited license expressly granted to Client in Sections 2.1 (SaaS Service and Documentation) and 5.3 (License to Deliverables), Fair Isaac reserves all rights (including Intellectual Property Rights) in and to the Fair Isaac Property. Client acknowledges and agrees that: (i) the Fair Isaac Property, all rights therein, and the goodwill associated therewith, are, and shall remain, the sole and exclusive property of Fair Isaac; (ii) it shall take no action which will adversely affect Fair Isaac’s exclusive ownership of the Fair Isaac Property, or the goodwill associated with the Fair Isaac Property; and (iii) any and all goodwill arising from use of the Fair Isaac Property by Client shall inure to the benefit of Fair Isaac. Nothing herein shall give Client any right, title, or interest of any kind in or to any Fair Isaac Property, except the right to use the SaaS Service and Deliverables as expressly set forth in the Agreement, and Client shall not contest the validity of, or Fair Isaac’s title in and to, the Fair Isaac Property. Fair Isaac Property and Third Party Software shall, in each case, be deemed Confidential Information of Fair Isaac.
9.2 Protection of Confidential Information.
(a) Purpose for Disclosure. Recipient may use Confidential Information of the Discloser only for the purposes of exercising Recipient’s rights and fulfilling Recipient’s obligations under the Agreement.
(b) Exceptions. Recipient’s obligation under the Agreement to treat information as Confidential Information does not apply to information that: (i) is already known to Recipient at the time of disclosure and was not obtained, directly or indirectly, from Discloser; (ii) is independently developed by Recipient without reference to or use of the Discloser’s Confidential Information; (iii) is obtained by Recipient from another source without a breach of any obligation of confidentiality owed by that source to Discloser; or (iv) is or becomes publicly available through no wrongful act of Recipient or any party that obtained the information from Recipient. If Recipient is served with a subpoena or other legal process, court, or governmental request or order requiring disclosure, or is otherwise required by law or securities exchange requirement to disclose, any of Discloser’s Confidential Information, Recipient shall, unless prohibited by law, promptly notify Discloser of that fact and cooperate fully (at Discloser’s expense) with Discloser and its legal counsel in opposing, seeking a protective order, seeking to limit, or appealing the subpoena, legal process, request, order, or requirement to the extent deemed appropriate by Discloser. Recipient may comply with the subpoena or other legal process or requirement after complying with the foregoing sentence, but only to the extent necessary for compliance. A non-public disclosure made pursuant to the foregoing sentence will not, by itself, remove any Confidential Information from the protections of the Agreement.
(c) Limitations on Disclosure and Use. Recipient shall use the same degree of care, but no less than a reasonable degree of care, to protect against the unauthorized disclosure or use of Discloser’s Confidential Information as it uses to protect its own confidential information of a similar type. Recipient shall disclose Confidential Information of Discloser only to its employees or independent contractors who have a need to know for the above stated purpose, and who are bound by obligations of confidentiality no less restrictive than the terms of the Agreement. Recipient shall not remove any confidentiality or proprietary notices from Discloser’s Confidential Information. If Recipient provides Discloser with comments, suggestions or other input regarding Discloser’s Confidential Information or Intellectual Property, Discloser will have an unrestricted, worldwide, royalty-free right to use those comments, suggestions, or other input for any purpose and in any manner, and to authorize others to do so.
(d) Injunctive Relief. Notwithstanding anything in Section 10.4, the parties acknowledge that the remedies at law available for the protection of Confidential Information or Intellectual Property may be inadequate, and, without limiting any rights available at law, each party is entitled to seek injunctive relief for any breach of the Agreement relating to the protection of its Confidential Information or Intellectual Property Rights.
9.3 Client Indemnity. Client agrees to and will defend, hold harmless and indemnify Fair Isaac (and its affiliates) and its and their directors, officers, employees, affiliates and agents (“FICO Indemnitees”) against any and all claims, demands or actions (“Claims”) and all losses, damages, liabilities, costs and expenses, including without limitation, legal fees and costs incurred by FICO Indemnitees that arise out of or relate to such Claims (collectively, “Damages”) in connection with: (a) any breach of Section 2.2 (Conditions of Use); (b) any breach of Section 3.3 (Client Data Obligations); or (c) Client’s use of the SaaS Service, Documentation, Support Services, Professional Services and Deliverables hereunder. The foregoing shall apply regardless of whether such damage is caused by the conduct of Client and/or its Authorized Users or by the conduct of a Third Party using Client’s access credentials. Without limiting the foregoing, Client will pay those Damages described above in any such action, or those Damages agreed to in a monetary settlement of such action, including without limitation all reasonable attorneys’ fees incurred by Indemnities or their agents in any related enforcement or defense action. Fair Isaac will notify Client promptly of any such Claim and give Client sole control over the defense thereof unless Client breaches its defense obligations, in which event Fair Isaac may defend the claim at the expense of Client.
9.4 Intellectual Property Indemnification. Unless otherwise indicated in an Order Form, and subject to the conditions below, Fair Isaac shall defend at its own expense any action against Client brought by a third party to the extent the action is based upon a claim that a Fair Isaac Product listed in an Order Form directly infringes any U.S. issued patent or copyright, or misappropriates any trade secret recognized under the Uniform Trade Secrets Act, and Fair Isaac will pay those costs and damages finally awarded against Client in the action that are specifically attributable to that claim, or those costs and damages agreed to in a monetary settlement of the action that are specifically attributable to the claim.
(a) Conditions. To be entitled to indemnification under this Customer Agreement, Client must: (i) notify Fair Isaac promptly in writing of the action; (ii) give Fair Isaac sole control of the defense of the action and any related settlement negotiations; (iii) cooperate, as Fair Isaac may reasonably request, in defense or settlement negotiations; and (iv) be and remain in compliance with the material terms of the Agreement.
(b) Options.

Unless otherwise provided in the applicable Order Form, if Fair Isaac exercises option (iii), Fair Isaac will refund to Client the unearned portion of any prepaid SaaS Service subscription fees and support and maintenance fees.
(c) Exclusions. Fair Isaac has no obligation with respect to any claim based upon: (i) any violation of the terms of Client’s license; (ii) any combination or use of any Fair Isaac Product with other products, equipment, software, or data not supplied or approved in writing by Fair Isaac; (iii) any modification of a Fair Isaac Product made pursuant to Client specifications or any other modification made by any entity other than Fair Isaac or its Affiliates; (iv) any claim that would have been avoided had Client upgraded to a new version or release of the Fair Isaac Product made available by Fair Isaac to Client; or (v) any unauthorized use or the Fair Isaac Product or use other than in accordance with the Documentation.
