Terms of Service

Last updated: June 21, 2023

Generally. In the interest of resolving disputes between you and officialdb in the most expedient and cost effective manner, and except as expressly described herein, you and officialdb agree that every dispute arising in connection with these Terms will be resolved by binding arbitration. Arbitration is less formal than a lawsuit in court. Arbitration uses a neutral arbitrator instead of a judge or jury, may allow for more limited discovery than in court, and can be subject to very limited review by courts. Arbitrators can award the same damages and relief that a court can award. This agreement to arbitrate disputes includes all claims arising out of or relating to any aspect of these Terms, whether based in contract, tort, statute, fraud, misrepresentation, or any other legal theory, and regardless of whether a claim arises during or after the termination of these Terms. YOU UNDERSTAND AND AGREE THAT, BY ENTERING INTO THESE TERMS, YOU AND officialdb ARE EACH WAIVING THE RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY OR TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION.

Exceptions. Despite the provisions of this Section, nothing in these Terms will be deemed to waive, preclude, or otherwise limit the right of either party to: (a) bring an individual action in small claims court; (b) pursue an enforcement action through the applicable federal, state, or local agency if that action is available; (c) seek injunctive relief in a court of law in aid of arbitration; or (d) to file suit in a court of law to address an intellectual property infringement claim.

Opt-Out. If you do not wish to resolve disputes by binding arbitration, you may opt out of the provisions of this Section within 30 days after the date that you agree to these Terms by sending a letter to officialdb, LLC, Attention: Legal Department – Arbitration Opt-Out, 1100 Bellevue Way NE, Ste. 8A, #91, Bellevue, WA 98004 that specifies: your full legal name, the email address associated with your account on the Services, and a statement that you wish to opt out of arbitration (“Opt-Out Notice”). Once officialdb receives your Opt-Out Notice, this Section will be void and any action arising out of these Terms will be resolved as set forth in Section 14(ii) (“Governing Law”) The remaining provisions of these Terms will not be affected by your Opt-Out Notice.

Arbitrator. Any arbitration between you and officialdb will be settled under the Federal Arbitration Act and administered by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) under its Consumer Arbitration Rules (collectively, “AAA Rules”) as modified by these Terms. The AAA Rules and filing forms are available online at https://www.adr.org/, by calling the AAA at +1-800-778-7879, or by contacting officialdb. The arbitrator has exclusive authority to resolve any dispute relating to the interpretation, applicability, or enforceability of this binding arbitration agreement.

Notice of Arbitration; Process. A party who intends to seek arbitration must first send a written notice of the dispute to the other party by certified U.S. Mail or by Federal Express (signature required) or, only if that other party has not provided a current physical address, then by electronic mail (“Notice of Arbitration”). officialdb’s address for Notice of Arbitration is: officialdb, LLC, 1100 Bellevue Way NE, Ste. 8A, #91, Bellevue, WA 98004. The Notice of Arbitration must: (a) describe the nature and basis of the claim or dispute; and (b) set forth the specific relief sought (“Demand”). The parties will make good faith efforts to resolve the claim directly, but if the parties do not reach an agreement to do so within 30 days after the Notice of Arbitration is received, you or officialdb may commence an arbitration proceeding. All arbitration proceedings between the parties will be confidential unless otherwise agreed by the parties in writing. During the arbitration, the amount of any settlement offer made by you or officialdb must not be disclosed to the arbitrator until after the arbitrator makes a final decision and award, if any. If the arbitrator awards you an amount higher than the last written settlement amount offered by officialdb in settlement of the dispute prior to the award, officialdb will pay to you the higher of: (c) the amount awarded by the arbitrator and (d) US$10,000.

Fees. If you commence arbitration in accordance with these Terms, officialdb will reimburse you for your payment of the filing fee, unless your claim is for more than US$10,000, in which case the payment of any fees will be decided by the AAA Rules. Any arbitration hearing will take place at a location to be agreed upon in the county and state of your residence or billing address, but if the claim is for US$10,000 or less, you may choose whether the arbitration will be conducted: (a) solely on the basis of documents submitted to the arbitrator; (b) through a non-appearance based telephone hearing; or (c) by an in-person hearing as established by the AAA Rules in the county (or parish) of your permanent residence. If the arbitrator finds that either the substance of your claim or the relief sought in the Demand is frivolous or brought for an improper purpose (as measured by the standards set forth in Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 11(b)), then the payment of all fees will be governed by the AAA Rules. In that case, you agree to reimburse officialdb for all monies previously disbursed by it that are otherwise your obligation to pay under the AAA Rules. Regardless of the manner in which the arbitration is conducted, the arbitrator must issue a reasoned written decision sufficient to explain the essential findings and conclusions on which the decision and award, if any, are based. The arbitrator may make rulings and resolve disputes as to the payment and reimbursement of fees or expenses at any time during the proceeding and upon request from either party made within 14 days of the arbitrator’s ruling on the merits.

No Class Actions. YOU AND officialdb AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN YOUR OR ITS INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. Further, unless both you and officialdb agree otherwise, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person’s claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding.

Modifications to this Arbitration Provision. If officialdb makes any future change to this arbitration provision, other than a change to officialdb’s address for Notice of Arbitration, you may reject the change by sending us written notice within 30 days of the change to officialdb’s address for Notice of Arbitration, in which case your account with officialdb will be immediately terminated and this arbitration provision, as in effect immediately prior to the changes you rejected will survive.

Enforceability. If Section 10(vii) (“No Class Actions”) or the entirety of this Section is found to be unenforceable, or if officialdb receives an Opt-Out Notice from you, then the entirety of this Section will be null and void and, in that case, the exclusive jurisdiction and venue described in Section 14(ii) (“Governing Law”) will govern any action arising out of or related to these Terms.

Marketing and Feedback

If you are using the Services on behalf of a company, you grant (and you represent and warrant that you have the authority to grant) officialdb, solely for marketing and sales purposes, an unrestricted, perpetual, revocable, non-exclusive, fully-paid, royalty-free right to use your company’s name and/or logos. These assets and logos will be used purely for marketing and sales efforts, such as being displayed on the officialdb home page. The User has the right to revoke the license to use logo at any time in its sole discretion by providing written notice to officialdb.

If you choose to provide input and suggestions regarding problems with or proposed modifications or improvements to the Services, then you hereby assign to officialdb all right, title, and interest in and to that feedback, including all intellectual property rights, and officialdb will be free to exploit the feedback in any manner and for any purpose without compensation to you.


officialdb reserves the right, at its sole discretion, to modify or replace any part of this Agreement. It is your responsibility to check this Agreement periodically for changes. Your continued use of or access to the Services following the posting of any changes to this Agreement constitutes acceptance of those changes. officialdb may also, in the future, offer new services and/or features through the Services (including, the release of new tools and resources). Such new features and/or services shall be subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement.


General Terms. These Terms, together with the Privacy Policy and any other agreements expressly incorporated by reference into these Terms, are the entire and exclusive understanding and agreement between you and officialdb regarding your use of the Services. You may not assign or transfer these Terms or your rights under these Terms, in whole or in part, by operation of law or otherwise, without our prior written consent. We may assign these Terms at any time without notice or consent. The failure to require performance of any provision will not affect our right to require performance at any other time after that, nor will a waiver by us of any breach or default of these Terms, or any provision of these Terms, be a waiver of any subsequent breach or default or a waiver of the provision itself. Use of Section headers in these Terms is for convenience only and will not have any impact on the interpretation of any provision. If any part of these Terms is held to be invalid or unenforceable, the unenforceable part will be given effect to the greatest extent possible, and the remaining parts will remain in full force and effect.

Optimizing Your Search Strategy

In instances where precise details about the individual you're seeking are lacking, the following search methodologies may help

Exploring Multiple Name Variations

If you're in search of a long-lost friend and only remember a part of their name, don't despair. Experiment with different potential combinations of the name as you remember it. This method often proves successful. However, if you're still unable to locate them, don't hesitate to reach out to officialDB customer service for further assistance.

Prior Residential Addresses

You may only possess an address as your point of reference, rather than a name. OfficialDB allows you to input such details to locate any individuals who may be associated with the given address. Rest assured, our search parameters are robust, so the data doesn't need to be current. Simply input the full address in our Reverse Address Lookup section. Despite potential changes, such as a person having moved years ago or an inactive phone number, these pieces of information are typically still tied to one or more individuals.

Searching Via Family Members

If you're limited in the amount of information you have about the individual in question, another effective route can be searching for their family members via officialDB. This method may yield useful insights that lead you closer to the person you're trying to locate.

Reverse Phone Lookup

OfficialDB offers a free reverse phone number lookup tool. By simply entering a phone number, you can uncover information such as the phone owner's full name, address, and more. Whether you've missed a call, received a text from an unknown number, or wish to investigate an unrecognized incoming call, our free reverse phone lookup tool can assist. It's a handy resource for anyone aiming to perform a reverse phone lookup for mobile, private, or business phone numbers.

Conducting In-Person Research

If you find yourself bereft of any substantial information, it may be beneficial to conduct some in-person research to gather preliminary data. Subsequently, you can leverage the power of officialDB to gain a comprehensive understanding of the person in question.
