General Terms of Service
Last updated: January 24th, 2017
These General Terms of Service (“General Terms”) are a legal agreement between you (“you,” “your”) and Pay-Back, (”Pay-Back,” “we,” “our” or “us”) and govern your use of Pay-Back services, including mobile applications, websites, software, hardware, and other products and services (collectively, the “Services”). If you are using the Services on behalf of a business, that business accepts these terms. By using any of the Services you agree to these General Terms and any policies referenced within (“Policies”), including terms that limit our liability (see Section 18) and require individual arbitration for any potential legal dispute (see Section 21).
- Pay-Back Account Registration
You must open an account with us (a “Pay-Back Account”) to use the Services. During registration, we will ask you for information, including your name and other personal information. You must provide accurate and complete information in response to our questions, and keep that information current. You are fully responsible for all activity that occurs under your Pay-Back Account, including for any actions taken by persons to whom you have granted access to the Pay-Back Account. We reserve the right to suspend or terminate the Pay-Back Account of any user who provides inaccurate, untrue, or incomplete information, or who fails to comply with the account registration requirements.
- Revisions, Disclosures and Notices
We may amend the General Terms, any Additional Terms, or our Policies, at any time with notice that we deem to be reasonable in the circumstances, by posting the revised version on our website or communicating it to you through the Services (each a “Revised Version”). The Revised Version will be effective as of the time it is posted, but will not apply retroactively. Your continued use of the Services after the posting of a Revised Version constitutes your acceptance of such Revised Version. Any Dispute (as defined in Section 20) that arose before the changes will be governed by the General Terms, Additional Terms or Policies in place when the Dispute arose.
You agree to Pay-Back E-Sign Consent. We may provide disclosures and notices required by law and other information about your Pay-Back Account to you electronically, by posting it on our website, pushing notifications through the Services, or by emailing it to the email address listed in your Pay- Back Account. Electronic disclosures and notices have the same meaning and effect as if we had provided you with paper copies. Such disclosures and notices are considered received by you within twenty-four (24) hours of the time posted to our website, or within twenty-four (24) hours of the time emailed to you unless we receive notice that the email was not delivered. If you wish to withdraw your consent to receiving electronic communications, contact Pay-Back Support. If we are not able to support your request, you may need to terminate your Pay-Back Account.
You may not, nor may you permit any third party, directly or indirectly, to:
- export the Services, which may be subject to export restrictions imposed by Belize Law
- access or monitor any material or information on any Pay-Back system using any manual process or robot, spider, scraper, or other automated means;
- except to the extent that any restriction is expressly prohibited by law, violate the restrictions in any robot exclusion headers on any Service, work around, bypass, or circumvent any of the technical limitations of the Services, use any tool to enable features or functionalities that are otherwise disabled in the Services, or decompile, disassemble or otherwise reverse engineer the Services;
- perform or attempt to perform any actions that would interfere with the proper working of the Services, prevent access to or use of the Services by our other customers, or impose an unreasonable or disproportionately large load on our infrastructure;
- copy, reproduce, alter, modify, create derivative works, publicly display, republish, upload, post, transmit, resell or distribute in any way material, information or Services from Pay-Back;
- use and benefit from the Services via a rental, lease, timesharing, service bureau or other arrangement;
- transfer any rights granted to you under these General Terms;
- use the Services in a way that distracts or prevents you from obeying traffic or safety laws;
- use the Services for the sale of firearms, firearm parts, ammunition, weapons or other devices designed to cause physical harm;
- use the Services for any illegal activity or goods or in any way that exposes you, other Pay-Back users, our partners, or Pay-Back to harm; or
- otherwise use the Services except as expressly allowed under these General Terms and applicable Additional Terms. If we reasonably suspect that your Pay-Back Account has been used for an unauthorized, illegal, or criminal purpose, you give us express authorization to share information about you, your Pay-Back Account, and any of your transactions with law enforcement.
- Compatible Mobile Devices and Third Party Carriers
We do not warrant that the Services will be compatible with your mobile device or carrier. Your use of the Services may be subject to the terms of your agreements with your mobile device manufacturer or your carrier. You may not use a modified device to use the Services if the modification is contrary to the manufacturer’s software or hardware guidelines, including disabling hardware or software controls—sometimes referred to as “jail broken.”
- Your Content
The Services may include functionality for uploading or providing photos, logos, products, loyalty
programs, promotions, advertisements and other materials or information (“Content”).
You grant us and our subsidiaries, affiliates, and successors a worldwide, non-exclusive, royalty-free, fully-paid, transferable, and sub-licensable right to use, reproduce, modify, adapt, publish, prepare derivative works of, distribute, publicly perform, and publicly display your Content throughout the world in any media in order to provide and promote the Services. You retain all rights in your Content, subject to the rights you granted to us in these General Terms. You may modify or remove your Content via your Pay-Back Account or by terminating your Pay-Back Account, but your Content may persist in historical, archived or cached copies and versions thereof available on or through the Services.
You will not upload or provide Content or otherwise post, transmit, distribute, or disseminate through the Services any material that: (a) is false, misleading, unlawful, obscene, indecent, lewd, pornographic, defamatory, libelous, threatening, harassing, hateful, abusive, or inflammatory; (b) encourages conduct that would be considered a criminal offense or gives rise to civil liability; (c) breaches any duty toward or rights of any person or entity, including rights of publicity, privacy or trademark; (d) contains corrupted data or any other harmful, disruptive, or destructive files; (e) advertises products or services competitive with Pay-Back or its partners’ products and services, as determined by us in our sole discretion; or (f) in our sole judgment, is objectionable, restricts or inhibits any person or entity from using or enjoying any portion of the Services, or which may expose Pay- Back, its affiliates or its customers to harm or liability of any nature.
Although we have no obligation to monitor any Content, we have absolute discretion to remove Content at any time and for any reason without notice. You understand that by using the Services, you may be exposed to Content that is offensive, indecent, or objectionable. We take no responsibility and assume no liability for any Content, including any loss or damage to any of your Content.
- Copyright and Trademark Infringement
We respect the copyright and trademark rights of others and ask you to do the same. We have adopted a Copyright & Trademark Policy regarding claims that third party material infringes the copyrights or trademarks of others. We respond to all valid notices of such copyright and trademark infringement, and our policy is to suspend or terminate the access privileges of those who infringe the copyrights and trademarks of others.
We have implemented technical and organizational measures designed to secure your personal information from accidental loss and from unauthorized access, use, alteration, or disclosure. However, we cannot guarantee that unauthorized third parties will never be able to defeat those measures or use your personal information for improper purposes. You provide your personal information at your own risk.
You are responsible for safeguarding your password and for restricting access to the Services from your compatible mobile devices and computer(s). You will immediately notify us of any unauthorized use of your password or Pay-Back Account or any other breach of security. Notwithstanding Sections
20 and 21, in the event of any dispute between two or more parties as to account ownership, we will be the sole arbiter of such dispute in our sole discretion. Our decision (which may include termination
or suspension of any Pay-Back Account subject to dispute) will be final and binding on all parties.
You consent to accept and receive communications from us, including e-mail, text messages, calls, and push notifications to the cellular telephone number you provide to us. These communications may be generated by automatic telephone dialing systems which will deliver prerecorded messages, including for the purposes of secondary authentication, receipts, reminders and other notifications. Standard message and data rates applied by your cell phone carrier may apply to the text messages we send you.
- Paid Services
Pay-Back may offer Services to be paid for on a recurring basis (“Subscription Services”) or on an
as-used basis (“A La Carte Services” and, together with the Subscription Services, “Paid Services”).
Pay-Back has the right to change, delete, discontinue or impose conditions on Paid Services or any feature or aspect of a Paid Service. Subscription Services may subject you to recurring fees and/or terms. By signing up for a Subscription Service, including after any free trial period, you agree to pay us the subscription fee and any applicable taxes as set forth in your Pay-Back Account settings or as otherwise agreed in writing (“Subscription Fee”). A La Carte Services may subject you to fees charged per usage and/or terms. By using an A La Carte Service, you agree to pay the fees and any taxes incurred at the time of usage (“A La Carte Fees” and, together with Subscription Fees, the “Paid Service Fees”).
Unless otherwise provided in a Subscription Service’s terms, Subscription Fees will be charged on the
1st of every month until cancelled. You may cancel a Subscription Service at any time from your Pay- Back Account settings. If you cancel a Subscription Service, you will continue to have access to that Subscription Service through the end of your then current billing period, but you will not be entitled to
a refund or credit for any Subscription Fee already due or paid. We reserve the right to change our Subscription Fee upon thirty (30) days’ advance notice. Your continued use of Subscription Services after notice of a change to our Subscription Fee will constitute your agreement to such changes.
We may terminate these General Terms or any Additional Terms, or suspend or terminate your Pay- Back Account or your access to any Service, at any time for any reason. We will take reasonable steps to notify you of termination by email or at the next time you attempt to access your Pay-Back Account. You may also terminate the General Terms and Additional Terms applicable to your Pay-Back Account by deactivating your Pay-Back Account at any time.
- Effect of Termination
If these General Terms or your Pay-Back Account is terminated or suspended for any reason: (a) the license and any other rights granted under these General Terms and any Additional Terms will end, (b) we may (but have no obligation to) delete your information and account data stored on our servers, and (c) we will not be liable to you or any third party for compensation, reimbursement, or damages for any termination or suspension of the Services, or for deletion of your information or account data.
