If Customer subscribes to the Ubiquiti Payment Gateway service (the “Service”), Customer agrees to the following additional terms and conditions:
Provider is not a party to the Processor Terms and is not liable to Customer in respect thereof. By accepting this Agreement and the Processor Terms, Customer agrees to the creation of an account with the Processor for Payment Processing (the “Processor Account”). Provider reserves the right to change the Processor, subject to the terms of its agreement with the Processor. In the event of any inconsistency between this Agreement and the Processor Terms, this Agreement shall prevail, except in the event of any inconsistency between this Agreement and the Processor Terms concerning Payment Processing or the Processor Account, in which case the Processor Terms shall prevail.
The Processor’s role is to accept and process credit card, debit card and other types of payments (collectively “Cards”) with respect to sales of Customer’s products and services through internet-based transactions (“Transactions").
The term “Payout Schedule” refers to the time it takes for Provider, after Provider has received the settlement of applicable Transactions from Processor, to initiate the applicable settlement to Customer’s account at Customer’s financial institution (the “Payout”). Provider may require a holding period before making the Payout to such account; provided, the financial institution holding Customer’s account may delay settlement for any reason. Provider and Processor are not responsible for any action taken by the institution holding Customer’s account to not credit Customer’s account or to otherwise not make funds available to Customer as Customer expected. Provider reserves the right to change the Payout Schedule or to suspend any Payout at any time and for any reason. Provider and Processor have the right to withhold all or a portion of any Payout to Customer’s account upon termination of this Agreement if they reasonably determine that they may incur losses resulting from credit, fraud, or other legal risks associated with Customer’s account.
It is the Customer’s responsibility to obtain Customer’s customers’ consents to be billed for each Transaction or, as the case may be, on a recurring basis, in compliance with applicable legal requirements and Visa Europe Ltd., Visa U.S.A., Inc., Visa Canada Inc. and Visa International (collectively, “Visa”), MasterCard International Incorporated (“MasterCard”), American Express or other applicable Card networks’ (such networks being, collectively, the “Payment Networks”) payment rules (the “Payment Network Rules”).
Provider will not be liable for any claim brought by a data subject arising from any action or omission by Provider, to the extent that such action or omission resulted from Customer’s instruction.
Additionally, in order to provide the Service, we may use a variety of third parties that fall into many broad categories—for example, Provider may use third parties to help Provider: (i) protect Customer and Provider from potentially risky transactions, security threats, or fraud; (ii) perform administrative tasks; (iii) deliver portions of the Service; (iv) develop and improve the products and the Service; (v) generate analytics or other information relating to the Service; and, (vi) build our technical infrastructure (e.g., using cloud storage providers or information security vendors). By using the Service, Customer consents to our use of third parties.
Further, Customer represents that Provider and the Processor will not be in breach of any such laws by collecting, receiving, using, and disclosing such information in connection with the Service. As between the parties to this Agreement, Customer is solely responsible for disclosing to Customer’s customers that we will collect and process their Cardholder Data in the supply of the Service to Customer, and that in so doing we may transmit or possess it outside of Customer’s or their jurisdiction, and that it may be subject to disclosure as required by applicable law.
If Customer receives information about others, including cardholders and other customers, through the use of the Service, Customer must keep such information confidential and only use it in connection with the Service or as otherwise permitted by the subject of such information.
Customer may not disclose or distribute any such information to a third party or use any such information for marketing purposes unless Customer receives the express consent of the subject thereof to do so. Customer may not disclose Cardholder Data to any third party other than in connection with processing a Transaction requested by Customer’s customer.
Customer further agrees not to permit any third party to do any of the following: (i) access or attempt to access Provider’s and its Affiliates’ systems, programs, or data that are not made available for public use; (ii) copy, reproduce, republish, upload, post, transmit, resell, or distribute, in any way, material from Provider and its Affiliates; (iii) permit any third party to use and benefit from the Service via a rental, lease, timesharing, service bureau, or other arrangement; (iv) transfer any rights granted to Customer under this Agreement; (v) work around any of the technical limitations of the Service, use any tool to enable features or functionalities that are otherwise disabled in the Service, or decompile, disassemble, or otherwise reverse engineer the Service, except to the extent that such restriction is expressly prohibited by law; (vi) perform or attempt to perform any actions that would interfere with the proper working of the Service, prevent access to or use of the Service by other customers of Provider, or impose an unreasonable or disproportionately large load on Provider’s and its Affiliates’ infrastructure; or, (vii) otherwise use the Service except as expressly allowed under this section.
Customer agrees that Provider is permitted to contact and share information about Customer with the Processor and other third parties in order to perform the Service. This includes sharing information: (i) about Transactions and Payouts for regulatory or compliance purposes; (ii) for use in connection with the management and maintenance of the Service; (iii) to create and update Provider’s and the Processor’s records about Customer; and, (iv) to conduct Provider’s and the Processor’s risk management process.
