You understand and agree that if Breezeworks sends you an electronic Communication but you do not receive it because your primary email address on file is incorrect, out of date, blocked by your service provider, or you are otherwise unable to receive electronic Communications, Breezeworks will be deemed to have provided the Communication to you. Please note that if you use a spam filter that blocks or re-routes emails from senders not listed in your email address book, you must add Breezeworks to your email address book so that you will be able to receive the Communications we send to you.
You can update your primary email address or street address at any time by contacting Customer Support. If your email address becomes invalid such that electronic Communications sent to you by Breezeworks are returned, Breezeworks may close your account, and you will not be able to transact any activity using your Breezeworks Account until we receive a valid, functioning primary email address from you.

We may decide not to authorize or settle any transaction that you submit to us if we believe that the transaction is in violation of this Agreement or any other Breezeworks agreement, or that it exposes you, other Vendors, our processors or Breezeworks to harm. Harm includes fraud and other criminal acts. If Breezeworks determines that you have received funds resulting from fraud or a prohibited activity, those funds may be frozen or seized.
In addition, if we reasonably suspect that your Account has been used for an unauthorized, illegal, or criminal purpose, you give us express authorization to share information about you, your Account, your access to the Breezeworks Services, and any of your transactions with law enforcement.
Breezeworks-provided hardware products are for your use with the Service, and you may not act as a hardware product reseller.
Our Role and Your Responsibilities
Breezeworks facilitates payments, including Card-based payments, for Vendors. Breezeworks is a Payment Service Provider (“PSP”), not a bank, money transmitter, or Money Services Business (“MSB”), and we do not offer banking or MSB services as defined by the United States Department of Treasury.
As a PSP, Breezeworks facilitates payments between Vendors and their Purchasers. This means that we collect, analyze and relay information generated in connection with these payments.
In order to serve in this role, Breezeworks must enter into agreements with the Partners, Networks, processors and banks. Some of these third parties may require a direct agreement with you. If you are required to enter into such an agreement and decline to do so, we may suspend or terminate your Account.
Furthermore, you must abide by the Operating Rules. You agree to fully comply with any and all programs or requirements that may be published and/or mandated by the Networks.
Notwithstanding Breezeworks’ assistance in understanding the Operating Rules, you expressly acknowledge and agree that you are assuming the risk of compliance with all provisions of the Operating Rules, regardless of whether you have possession of those provisions. The Networks make excerpts of their respective Operating Rules available on their websites (including usa.visa.com, www.mastercard.com, www.americanexpress.com and www.discover.com).
Operating Rules currently prohibit you from dispensing cash on any Card transaction. The Rules also restrict your ability to assess a surcharge or split a single transaction into multiple transactions except in certain limited situations.
Your Payment Authorization
You authorize us to hold, receive, disburse and settle funds on your behalf. Your authorization permits us to generate a paper draft or electronic funds transfer to process each payment transaction that you authorize. Subject to this Agreement, you also authorize Breezeworks to debit or credit any payment card or other payment method we accept.
You authorize Breezeworks to initiate electronic Automated Clearinghouse (“ACH”) entries to each bank account for which you input routing number and account number, and to initiate adjustments for any transactions credited or debited in error. You agree to be bound by the Operating Rules of the National Automated Clearing House Association, a governing organization for financial transactions in the United States (“NACHA”), and you agree that all ACH transactions that you initiate will comply with all applicable law. Your authorization will remain in full force and effect until you notify us that you revoke it by contacting Customer Support in accordance with instructions on our Website or by closing your Account. You understand that Breezeworks requires a reasonable time to act on your revocation, not to exceed five (5) business days.
Accepted Forms of Payment
Breezeworks supports most domestic credit, debit, prepaid or gift cards (“Cards”) with a Visa, MasterCard, American Express or Discover logo. In addition, Breezeworks supports most international cards with these logos. We may add or remove support for certain payment cards at any time without prior notice. We will generally only process Cards that receive an authorization from the applicable Network and Card issuer.
You understand that there may be times when the Purchaser may not be the authorized user of the Card or that such Purchaser may otherwise contest the transaction through the Chargeback process (described below). You agree to comply with the Chargeback process and to liability associated with such Chargebacks.
Breezeworks also supports payments via Check21 and ACH from U.S.-based Purchasers with a U.S. bank account. We may conduct verification checks on Purchasers to ensure account ownership and sufficient balance, and we may refuse to process payments from Purchasers at our discretion.
Underwriting and Sharing Information
Breezeworks will review the information that you submit in connection with your request to sign up for the Services. We may share some or all of the information you provide with our processor and other partners. At any time, Breezeworks, its processor or its other partners may conclude that you will not be permitted to use Breezeworks.
You authorize Breezeworks to request identity verifying information about you, including a consumer report that contains your name and address. You further agree that Breezeworks may periodically obtain additional reports to determine whether you continue to meet the requirements for an Account.
You agree that Breezeworks is permitted to contact and share information about you and your Account with banks and other financial institutions. This includes sharing information (a) about your transactions for regulatory or compliance purposes, (b) for use in connection with the management and maintenance of the Service, (c) to create and update their customer records about you and to assist them in better serving you, and (d) to conduct Breezeworks’ risk management process.
Breezeworks will transfer funds from a Breezeworks Account to the Vendor’s bank account according to the schedule Breezeworks selects. Vendors may request ad-hoc settlement at anytime.
Settlements from a Breezeworks Account to a bank account may be limited or delayed based on your perceived risk and history with Breezeworks. If you would like to request an increase to this limit, please contact Breezeworks Support. Upon receiving this request, Breezeworks will conduct a review of your account. Breezeworks will consider a variety of factors in making this decision and will make this determination at its sole discretion.
Should Breezeworks need to conduct an investigation or resolve any pending dispute related to your Account, we may defer payout or restrict access to your funds for the entire time it takes us to do so. We may also defer payout or restrict access to your funds as required by law or court order, or if otherwise requested by law enforcement or governmental entity.
Furthermore, if Breezeworks suspects future chargebacks or disputes as a result of transactions to your Account, Breezeworks may defer payout and/or restrict access to your funds until Breezeworks reasonably believes, in its sole discretion, that the risk of receiving a chargeback or dispute has passed.
All settlements to Vendors are subject to review for risk and compliance purposes and can be delayed or postponed at Breezeworks’s sole discretion.
At any time and from time to time, we may temporarily suspend or delay payments to you and/or designate an amount of funds that we must maintain in a Breezeworks Account (“Reserve”) to secure the performance of your payment obligations under this Agreement. We may require a Reserve for any reason, including high chargeback risk or indications of performance problems related to your use of the Service.
The Reserve will be in an amount as reasonably determined by us to cover anticipated chargebacks, returns, unshipped merchandise and/or unfulfilled services or credit risk based on your processing history or such amount designated by our processor. The Reserve may be raised, reduced or removed at any time by Breezeworks, in its sole discretion, based on your payment history, a credit review, the amount of any arbitration award or court judgment against you in Breezeworks’ favor, or otherwise as Breezeworks or its processor may determine or require. If you do not have sufficient funds in your Reserve, we may fund the Reserve from any funding source associated with your Account, or from any other Breezeworks Account under your control or any funding source associated with such other Account, including but not limited to any funds (a) held as a balance in your Account, (b) due to you under this Agreement, or (c) available in your bank account, or other payment instrument registered with us.
You grant us a security interest in and lien on any and all funds held in any Reserve, and also authorize us to make any withdrawals or debits from the Reserve, without prior notice to you, to collect amounts that you owe us under this Agreement, including without limitation for any reversals of deposits or transfers made to your Breezeworks Account. You will execute any additional documentation required for us to perfect our security interest in any funds in the Reserve. This security interest survives for as long as we hold funds in your Reserve; however, it does not apply to any funds for which the grant of a security interest would be prohibited by law. You irrevocably assign to us all rights and legal interests to any interest or other earnings that accrue or are attributable to your Reserve.
You are not required to hold a monetary balance in your Breezeworks Account in order to use the Service. When you have a positive balance, your funds will be co-mingled and held by us with other Vendors’ funds in one or more pooled accounts at one or more FDIC-insured banks for the benefit of you and other Users holding balances. Amounts held in the pooled account are eligible for FDIC pass-through insurance, meaning that your balance may be insured up to the FDIC maximum, which is currently $250,000. We have sole discretion over the establishment and maintenance of any pooled account.
We will hold funds associated with your Breezeworks Account separate from our corporate funds. We will not use your funds for our corporate purposes (including the granting of any security or similar interest), will not voluntarily make funds available to our creditors in the event of bankruptcy or for any other purpose, and will not knowingly permit our creditors to attach the funds. You will not receive interest or any other earnings on any funds that we hold for you. As consideration for using the Service, you irrevocably assign to us all rights and legal interests to any interest and/or other earnings or benefits that may accrue or are attributable to our holding of your balance in a pooled account.
If the balance in your Breezeworks Account is negative for an extended period of time (as defined by Breezeworks in its sole discretion), Breezeworks may close your Account and pursue legal action or other collection efforts.
Cardholder Data Security
“Cardholder Data” is information associated with a payment card, such as account number, expiration date, and card security code (“CSC”) data such as CVV1, CVC1, CVV2, CVC2).
If you handle, transmit, or store any Cardholder Data in connection with your use of the Breezeworks Service, you agree to comply at all times with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards (“PCI DSS”). Further, you agree to certify such compliance and provide documentation in accordance with Operating Rules, or when asked by Breezeworks to do so. You also agree that you will use only PCI compliant service providers in connection with the storage, processing, or transmission of Cardholder Data. You will remove Cardholder Data from your systems, and any other place where you store it, as soon as practicable and in no event more than 24 hours after you receive an authorization decision.
You are fully responsible for the security of data (including but not limited to Cardholder Data) in your possession or control. You agree to comply with all applicable laws and rules in connection with your collection, security and dissemination of any personal, financial, or transaction information.
Unless you receive the express consent of your customer, you may not retain, track, monitor, store, disclose or otherwise use data except for the transaction for which it was given.
You are responsible for determining any and all taxes assessed, incurred, or required to be collected, paid, or withheld, in connection with your use of the Service. You are solely responsible for collecting, withholding, reporting and remitting correct any taxes to the appropriate tax authority. Breezeworks is not obligated to, and will not, determine whether taxes apply, or calculate, collect, report or remit any taxes to any tax authority arising from your use of the Service.
Breezeworks may have tax reporting responsibilities in connection with the Service. For example, Breezeworks or its Partners will report to the Internal Revenue Service (“IRS”) on Form 1099-K as required by law, your name, address, Tax Identification Number (such as Employment Identification Number or Social Security Number), the total dollar amount of the payments you receive in a calendar year, and the total dollar amount of the payments you receive for each month in a calendar year.
Customer Service Provided by Vendors
You are solely responsible for all customer service issues relating to your goods or services, including pricing, order fulfillment, order cancellation by you or the customer, returns, refunds and adjustments, rebates, functionality and warranty, technical support and feedback concerning experiences with your personnel, policies or processes. In performing customer service, you will always present yourself as a separate entity from Breezeworks. As between you and us, we are solely responsible for customer service issues relating to a Breezeworks Account, payment card processing, debiting or crediting.
Refunds and Returns Provided by Vendors
You agree to process returns of, and provide refunds and adjustments for goods or services through your Breezeworks Account in accordance with this Agreement and the Operating Rules. The Operating Rules require that you will (a) maintain a fair return, cancellation or adjustment policy; (b) disclose your return or cancellation policy to Purchasers at the time of purchase, (c) not give cash refunds to a Purchaser in connection with a payment card sale, unless required by law, and (d) not accept cash or any other item of value for preparing a payment card sale refund. If your Purchaser is dissatisfied with your refund policy, the Purchaser may chargeback the payment.
Vendor’s Liability for Chargebacks
The amount of a payment may be charged back to you if (a) it is disputed by a Purchaser, (b) it is reversed for any reason, (c) it was not authorized or we have any reason to believe that the transaction was not authorized, or (d) it is unlawful, suspicious, or in violation of the terms of this Agreement. You are responsible for all chargebacks, whether or not the chargeback complies with the Operating Rules.
How Breezeworks Handles Chargebacks
You owe us and will immediately pay us the amount of any chargeback and any associated Fees, fines, or penalties assessed by our processor or the Networks. If you do not have sufficient funds in your Breezeworks Account, we will have the remedies set forth in “Our Set-off and Collection Rights” below. If you have pending chargebacks, we may delay payouts from your Breezeworks account.
Further, if we reasonably believe that a chargeback is likely with respect to any transaction, we may withhold the amount of the potential chargeback from payments otherwise due to you under this Agreement until such time that: (a) a chargeback is assessed due to a Purchaser’s complaint, in which case we will retain the funds; (b) the period of time under applicable law or regulation by which the Purchaser may dispute that the transaction has expired; or (c) we determine that a chargeback on the transaction will not occur.
If we determine that you are incurring an excessive amount of Chargebacks, we may establish controls or conditions governing your Breezeworks Account, including without limitation, by (a) assessing additional Fees, (b) creating a Reserve in an amount reasonably determined by us to cover anticipated chargebacks and related fees, (c) delaying payouts, and (d) terminating or suspending the Service or closing your Account.
You agree to assist us when requested, at your expense, to investigate any of your transactions processed through the Service. To that end, you permit us to share information about a chargeback with the Purchaser, the Purchaser’s financial institution, and your financial institution in order to investigate and/or mediate a chargeback. We will request necessary information from you to contest the chargeback. If the chargeback is contested successfully, we will release the reserved funds to you. If a chargeback dispute is not resolved in your favor by the Association or issuing bank or you choose not to contest the chargeback, we may recover the chargeback amount and any associated fees as described in this Agreement. You acknowledge that your failure to assist us in a timely manner when investigating a transaction, including providing necessary documentation within seven (7) days of our request, may result in an irreversible chargeback. We reserve the right, upon notice to you, to charge a fee for mediating and/or investigating chargeback disputes.
Our Set-off and Collection Rights
To the extent permitted by law, we may set off any obligation you owe us under this Agreement (including chargebacks) against the balance in your Account or against any amounts due to you. All Fees are deducted first from the transferred or collected funds and thereafter from the balance in your Breezeworks Account. If you do not have sufficient funds in your Breezeworks Account, we may collect from any funding source associated with your Account, or from any other Breezeworks Account under your control, or from any funding source associated with such other Account, including but not limited to any funds (a) deposited by you, (b) due to you under this Agreement, or (c) available in your bank account, or other payment instrument registered with us. Your failure to pay in full amounts that you owe us on demand will be a breach of this Agreement. You will be liable for our costs associated with collection in addition to the amount owed, including without limitation attorneys’ fees and expenses, collection agency fees, and any applicable interest.
If there is no activity in your Breezeworks Account (including access or payment transactions) for at least two years, consecutively, and you have a positive balance, we may notify you by sending an email to your registered email address and give you the option of keeping your Breezeworks Account open and maintaining the balance, withdrawing the balance, or requesting a check. If you do not respond to our notice within thirty days, we may automatically close your Breezeworks Account and escheat your funds in accordance with applicable law, and if permitted, to Breezeworks.
Receipts and Account Reconciliation
When you receive a payment, we will update your Account. You should make archival copies of your Breezeworks account data regularly. Except as required by law, you are solely responsible for (a) compiling and retaining permanent records of all transactions and other data, and (b) reconciling all transaction information that is associated with your Breezeworks Account. If you believe that there is an error or unauthorized transaction activity associated with your Breezeworks Account, please contact Customer Support immediately.
When Purchaser is present at the time of the transaction and signs an Electronic Signature, you benefit from the Network Rules for card present transactions. You agree to request that Purchaser personally sign for all transactions when Purchaser is present. You must make a written receipt available to Purchasers for any transaction greater than $15.00. You may give Purchasers the option to receive or decline a written receipt. As a convenience, but not in lieu of a written receipt, you may also offer electronic receipts to Purchasers.
We will attempt to correct processing errors that we discover by debiting or crediting your Breezeworks Account. Breezeworks will only correct transactions that are processed incorrectly if and when you notify us of such an error in a timely fashion.
Privacy of Others
By using the Services, you may receive information about Purchasers, Vendors, or other third parties. You must keep such information confidential and only use it in connection with the Services. You may not disclose or distribute any such information to a third party or use the information for marketing purposes unless you receive the express consent of the Purchaser, Vendor, or other third party.

Infringement by User Content
Breezeworks respects the intellectual property rights of others, and asks you to do the same. If you believe that User Content posted on the Service infringes copyright, trademark, or other intellectual property rights owned by you (or a person on whose behalf you are authorized to act), send Breezeworks an Infringement Notice containing the following:
A description of the intellectual property rights that you claim have been infringed;

A statement by you regarding your good faith belief that the disputed use is not authorized by the owner of the intellectual property rights, its agent, or the law; and

Please send your Notice of Infringement to:
Attn: Legal Department

If you believe that your removed or disabled User Content is not infringing, or that you have the authorization or right to post and use that User Content from the owner of the intellectual property rights (or the owner’s agent) or pursuant to law, you may send a counter-notice containing the information required by Section 512(g)(3) of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (17 USC § 512(g)(3)). Breezeworks will forward your counter-notification to the party who submitted the original Notice of Infringement. If the original claimant does not file an action seeking a court order to restrain you from engaging in infringing activity related to the removed or disabled User Content within 10 business days of receiving the counter-notice from Breezeworks, then Breezeworks may, in its sole discretion, reinstate the removed or disabled User Content.
You agree to defend or settle any proceeding brought against Breezeworks to the extent that is based on a claim that any User Content you have uploaded to the Service infringes another party’s intellectual property rights. You shall pay your own legal fees as well as all damages and costs awarded therein against Breezeworks.
We have implemented technical and organizational measures designed to secure your personal information from accidental loss and from unauthorized access, use, alteration, or disclosure.

Any funds that we are holding in custody for you at the time of closure, less any applicable Fees, will be paid out to you according to your payout schedule, assuming all payout-related authentication requirements have been fulfilled (for example, you may not close your Breezeworks Account as a means of evading your payout schedule). If an investigation is pending at the time you close your Breezeworks Account, we may hold your funds as described herein. If you are later determined to be entitled to some or all of the funds in dispute, we will release those funds to you.
Suspension or Termination by Us
We may terminate this Agreement or suspend or close your Breezeworks Account for any reason or no reason at any time upon notice to you.

Third Party Products
All third party hardware and other products included or sold with the Services are provided solely according to the warranty and other terms specified by the manufacturer, who is solely responsible for service and support for its product. For service, support, or warranty assistance, you should contact the manufacturer directly. BREEZEWORKS MAKES NO WARRANTIES, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, WITH RESPECT TO SUCH THIRD PARTY PRODUCTS, AND EXPRESSLY DISCLAIMS ANY WARRANTY OR CONDITION OF MERCHANTABILITY, NON-INFRINGEMENT, OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE.

If a dispute of any kind arises, we want to understand and address your concerns quickly and to your satisfaction. Please contact Breezeworks Support with any dispute. If we cannot resolve your concerns, we agree to an informal and inexpensive dispute resolution process requiring individual arbitration.
Binding Individual Arbitration
You and Breezeworks agree to arbitrate all “Disputes,” defined as any claim, controversy or dispute (whether involving contract, tort, equitable, statutory or any other legal theory) between you and Breezeworks, including but not limited to any claims relating in any way to this Agreement (including its breach, termination and interpretation), any other aspect of our relationship, Breezeworks advertising, and any use of Breezeworks software or services. “Disputes” also include any claims that arose before this Agreement and that may arise after termination of this Agreement.
Arbitration is more informal than a lawsuit in court and seeks to resolve disputes more quickly. Instead of a judge or a jury, the case will be decided by a neutral arbitrator who has the power to award the same damages and relief that a court can. ANY ARBITRATION UNDER THIS AGREEMENT WILL BE ONLY BE ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS; CLASS ARBITRATIONS, CLASS ACTIONS, PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL ACTIONS, AND CONSOLIDATION WITH OTHER ARBITRATIONS ARE NOT PERMITTED, AND YOU ARE WAIVING YOUR RIGHTS TO HAVE YOUR CASE DECIDED BY A JURY AND TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION AGAINST BREEZEWORKS. If any provision of this arbitration agreement is found unenforceable, the unenforceable provision shall be severed, and the remaining arbitration terms shall be enforced (but in no case shall there be a class arbitration). All Disputes shall be resolved finally and exclusively by binding individual arbitration with a single arbitrator administered by the American Arbitration Association (www.adr.org) (“AAA”) according to this provision and the applicable arbitration rules. A form for initiating arbitration proceedings is available on the AAA’s website at www.adr.org. Consumer claimants (individuals whose transaction is intended for personal, family, or household use) may elect to pursue their claims in their local small-claims court rather than through arbitration. The Federal Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. §§ 1-16, fully applies. Any arbitration hearing will occur within the county or parish where you reside or at another mutually agreed location. If the value of the relief sought is $10,000 or less, you or Breezeworks may elect to have the arbitration conducted by telephone or based solely on written submissions, which election shall be binding on you and Breezeworks subject to the arbitrator’s discretion to require an in-person hearing, if the circumstances warrant. Attendance at an in-person hearing may be made by telephone by you or by Breezeworks, unless the arbitrator requires otherwise. The arbitrator’s award shall be binding on the parties and may be entered as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction. Payment of all filing, administration, and arbitrator fees will be governed by the AAA’s rules, unless otherwise stated in this Agreement. If the value of the relief sought is $10,000 or less, at your request, Breezeworks will pay all filing, administration, and arbitrator fees associated with the arbitration. If the value of the relief sought is more than $10,000 and you are able to demonstrate that the costs of arbitration will be prohibitive as compared to the costs of litigation, Breezeworks will pay as much of the filing, administration, and arbitrator fees as the arbitrator deems necessary to prevent the arbitration from being cost-prohibitive. In the event the arbitrator determines the claims you assert in the arbitration are frivolous, you agree to reimburse Breezeworks for all fees associated with the arbitration paid by Breezeworks on your behalf that you otherwise would be obligated to pay under the AAA’s rules. For purposes of this arbitration provision, references to you and Breezeworks also include respective subsidiaries, affiliates, agents, employees, predecessors, successors and assigns as well as authorized Users or beneficiaries of the Service. Subject to and without waiver of the arbitration provisions above, you agree that any judicial proceedings (other than small claims actions in consumer cases) will be brought in and you hereby consent to the exclusive jurisdiction and venue in the state courts in the County of Santa Clara, California, or federal court for the Northern District of California. Consumer customers have a right to appeal any decision to a panel of multiple arbitrators if the claim is above $100,000. This stated threshold is based on the amount of the claim, not the amount of the award.
This Agreement and any Dispute will be governed by California law and/or applicable federal law (including the Federal Arbitration Act) as applied to agreements entered into and to be performed entirely within California, without regard to its choice of law or conflicts of law principles that would require application of law of a different jurisdiction.
Limitation on Time to Initiate a Dispute
Unless otherwise required by law, an action or proceeding by you relating to any Dispute must commence within one year after the cause of action accrues.
Right to Amend
We have the right to change or add to the terms of this Agreement at any time, and to change, delete, discontinue, or impose conditions on any feature or aspect of the software or Service with notice that we in our sole discretion deem to be reasonable in the circumstances, including such notice on our Website or any other website maintained or owned by us for the purposes of providing services in terms of this Agreement. Any use of our software or Service after our publication of any such changes shall constitute your acceptance of this Agreement as modified.

Third Party Services and Links to Other Web Sites
Except as expressly provided in this Agreement, these terms are a complete statement of the agreement between you and Breezeworks, and they describe the entire liability of Breezeworks and its vendors and suppliers (including processors) and your exclusive remedy with respect to your access and use of the Service. In the event of a conflict between this Agreement and any other Breezeworks agreement or policy, this Agreement shall prevail on the subject matter of this Agreement. If any provision of this Agreement is invalid or unenforceable under applicable law, then it shall be changed and interpreted to accomplish the objectives of such provision to the greatest extent possible under applicable law, and the remaining provisions will continue in full force and effect. Headings and summaries are included for convenience only, and shall not be considered in interpreting this Agreement. The Agreement does not limit any rights that Breezeworks may have under trade secret, copyright, patent or other laws. Breezeworks’ failure to assert any right or provision under this Agreement shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision. No waiver of any term of this Agreement shall be deemed a further or continuing waiver of such term or any other term.
Any provision that is reasonably necessary to accomplish or enforce the purpose of this Agreement shall survive and remain in effect in accordance with its terms upon the termination of this Agreement.
