“Just because someone in the marketing department wrote that the terms of service don't apply to the cybersecurity incident means nothing compared to the contractual obligations of the terms of use,” he said.

“If you look back at the TrustedID terms of use, the last paragraph says 'entire agreement between us,' which basically reiterates that the terms of service is the entire agreement and anything else you read on the website have no applicability.”

The most we can say, Winston said, is you are not bound by any of Equifax's terms of use if you do not engage the company at all.
