After a security breach at Equifax compromised the personal data of around 143 million people, the company is trying to make amends by offering potential victims a free year's worth of its credit reporting service, TrustedID.
But the fine print of that deal has some people worried that it might limit people's legal options against Equifax.
Both TrustedID's and Equifax's main sites have arbitration clauses in the terms of service that prohibit users from joining a class-action suit against the company.
The company has since stated that TrustedID's arbitration clause won't apply to the cybersecurity incident. But again, it's not clear whether the overall site's terms of service exempt the breach victims as well.
