You acknowledge that the use of a device to use the Service that is modified in a manner contrary to the manufacturer.s guidelines is expressly

Our Service allows you to accept payments, including card based payments, initiated with cards bearing the trademarks of MasterCard International Inc. and Visa Inc. (collectively, the "Networks"). We are not a bank or a money services business ("MSB") and we do not offer banking or MSB services as defined by the Federal or state law. In the capacity of a merchant payment processor, we (either ourselves or through a processor) process payments you receive from your customers. This means that we collect, analyze and relay information generated in connection with these payments. In order to serve in this role, we must enter into agreements with the payment networks, other processors and banks. These third parties may require that some of our users (those with higher volume, or in certain industries) enter into an agreement with what is known as the "payment processor of record". If you are such a user, we will provide you a "Commercial Entity Agreement" that you must complete in order to use (or continue to use) the Service. This may happen during the registration process or at some other time. If you fail to complete a "Commercial Entity Agreement," we may suspend or terminate your Sail Account. By accepting the terms of this Agreement, you authorize us to hold, receive, and disburse funds on your behalf. Your authorization permits us to generate a paper draft or an electronic funds transfer to process each payment transaction that you authorize. Your authorizations will remain in full force and effect until your Sail Account is closed or terminated.
VIII. UNAUTHORIZED USE; RESTRICTIONS ON USE.
You may use the Service only to the extent that you comply with all statutes, laws, rules, and regulations applicable to your use of the Service (including those imposed by Federal or state law, or any payment card network, as set forth below). You may not act as a payment intermediary, aggregator or service bureau or otherwise resell our Services on behalf of any third party. This means that you may not use the Service to handle, process or transmit funds for any third party. You also may not use the Service to process cash advances. The Service and your Sail Account may only be used in the fifty states of the United States of America and the District of Columbia. You may not export any part of the Service directly or indirectly, and you acknowledge that the Service may be subject to export restrictions imposed by Federal and states laws, including US Export Administration Regulations (15 C.F.R. Chapter VII).

The payment card networks require that VeriFone and you comply with all applicable bylaws, rules, and regulations ("Network Rules"). The payment card networks have historically reserved the right to amend the Network Rules. As a result, we may be required to amend this Agreement should there be amendments to the Network Rules. Significant portions of the Network Rules are available to the public at usa.visa.com and www.mastercard.com. Network Rules currently prohibit you from (a) assessing a surcharge for the use of a payment card in connection with any transaction, or (b) dispensing cash on any card transaction. The Network Rules also restrict your use of payment card network logos to indicating your acceptance of the network cards, and as may expressly be authorized by the Networks. We may determine not to authorize or settle any transaction that you submit to us if we believe that the transaction is in violation of any VeriFone agreement, applicable law or the Network Rules, or exposes you, other VeriFone users, our processors or VeriFone to harm, including the potential for fraud and other criminal acts.

You shall be liable for the accuracy and legitimacy of all orders and information provided to VeriFone and you may not process orders on behalf of any other entity or individual.

XI. ACCEPTED CARDS.
VeriFone works with most US-issued and many non-US issued credit, debit, pre-paid, or gift cards with a Visa, MasterCard, American Express, or Discover logo. We currently do not accept HSA cards (Health Savings Account), even if they have a Visa, MasterCard, American Express, or Discover logo on them. We may remove or add cards that we accept at anytime without prior notice. We will only process cards that receive an authorization from the applicable payment network or card issuer. The person who presents the card to you ("the Payer"), may not be authorized to use the card or otherwise contest the transaction through the chargeback process (described below).
XII. OUR FEES.
In consideration for our provision of the Services, you agree to pay the applicable fees listed on our Fee Schedule ("Fees"), which has separately been provided to you, whenever you use our Service. Subject to the terms of this Agreement, we reserve the right to change our Fees on thirty (30) days prior notice of any change, which you agree is reasonable notice. Your continued use of the Service on the thirty-first day following our notice to you (which may be on our website or delivered electronically) constitutes your acceptance of the revised Fees. If you wish to withdraw your consent once the Fees have changed, you will need to close your Sail Account.
XIII. AVAILABILITY OF FUNDS.
Subject to the limitations set forth in this Agreement (including the payout schedule set forth below), we will deposit (in US dollars) to your Sail Account the amounts actually received by us for transactions submitted through the Service (less any applicable Fees, and in the case of card not present sales, if you accrue more than $750 in card-notpresent sales during any trailing seven day period, we may defer depositing the money in excess of $750 for 30 days or more). Once your bank account information is verified, we will automatically deposit your money in your designated bank account once your Sail Account balance exceeds $5. Funds for any given transaction will not be deposited until the transaction is deemed complete, which is when we have received or sent the funds and when we or the designated financial institutions have accepted the transaction or funds. You are responsible for monitoring your transactions and ensuring that our payments to you are correct. You must notify us of any errors in payments made to you within thirty (30) days of the error first appearing on your electronic transaction history. Failure to notify us of such an error is an express waiver of any funds subject to the purported error. Once you validate your US bank account, we will automatically initiate a payout to your bank account at the end of every business day. We reserve the right to apply limits to the amount deposited to your account on a weekly basis. The amount of the maximum weekly deposit to your account will be dynamically determined based on account history, internal fraud and risk rules, and other business considerations, and may be reduced if certain thresholds are exceeded or if, in our sole opinion, the risk associated with your Sail Account is deemed to be excessive. You may request a review of these limits at any time, and we will respond within a reasonable time frame, generally not to exceed 30 days, with the result of our review. Should we need to conduct an investigation or resolve any pending dispute related to your Sail Account, we may defer payout or restrict access to your funds for the entire time it takes for us to do so. We also may 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.
XIV. SAIL ACCOUNT HISTORY.
When a payment is made to your Sail Account, we will update your Sail Account activity on the website and provide you a transaction confirmation. The confirmation will serve as your receipt. Summaries of your Sail Account activity, including monthly statements, are available on our website for up to one year of account activity. Except as required by law,
you are solely responsible for (a) compiling and retaining permanent records of all transactions and other data associated with your Sail Account and your use of the Service, and (b) reconciling all transactional information that is associated with your Sail Account. If you believe that there is an error or unauthorized transaction activity is associated with your Sail Account, you agree to contact us immediately.
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 your Sail Account or in a separate reserve account (a "Reserve") to secure the performance of your payment obligations under this Agreement. We may require a Reserve for any reason, including if you have a high rate of chargebacks (described in Section XXI), refunds, or other 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 us, in our sole discretion, based on your payment history, a credit review, the amount of any arbitration award or court judgment against you in our favor, or otherwise as we or out 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 Sail 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. 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 Sail 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 the later of: as long as we hold funds in your Reserve, or the expiration of your obligations under this Agreement, or any other agreement that you may have with us or our affiliates or processors.
XVI. SAIL ACCOUNT BALANCES.
You may, but are not required to, hold monetary balances that you receive in your Sail Account (your "Balance"). When you carry a Balance, your funds will be co-mingled and held with other participants' funds in one or more pooled accounts at one or more FDICinsured banks by us on your behalf and for the benefit of you and other users holding such balances (each a "Pooled Account"). US dollar balances 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. Although your Balance (and others) may be held in a Pooled Account, these funds will at all times be held 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 handle 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 that may accrue or are attributable to our holding of your Balance in a Pooled Account or Reserve (described in the preceding section).
When your customer is present at the time of the transaction and signs the VeriFone Signature Screen, you benefit from the Network Rules for card present transactions. You agree to request that your customer personally sign for all transactions greater than $25.00 when your customer is present. You must make a written receipt available to your customers for any transaction greater than fifteen dollars ($15.00). You may give your customers the option to receive or decline a written receipt. As a convenience, but not in lieu of a written receipt, you may also offer VeriFone electronic receipts for delivery through SMS (if available) or email to your customers. If you operate a 501(c)(3) organization you may offer VeriFone electronic receipts to your donors as a convenience, by completing the required fields in the "Tax and Reporting" section of our website. You acknowledge that not all payments made to your organization may be eligible for classification as "tax deductible to the extent allowed by law," and you assume full responsibility for the classification of your transactions, and shall indemnify us therefore.
You are responsible for determining any and all taxes assessed, incurred, or required to be collected, paid, or withheld for any reason ("Taxes") in connection your use of the Services .

If in a given calendar year you receive (i) more than $20,000 in gross amount of payments and (ii) more than 200 payments, we will report annually to the Internal Revenue Service ("IRS"), as required by law, your name, address, Tax Identification Number (such as a Social Security Number (SSN), or Employer Identification Number (EIN)), 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. If you do not provide us with your SSN or your EIN, in subsequent years, and depending on applicable law, we may be required to holdback funds otherwise due to you, and/or provide a report to the IRS regarding your failure to properly provide us with the required (or inaccurate) information.
XIX. CUSTOMER SERVICE.
You are solely responsible for all customer service issues relating to your goods or services, including pricing, order fulfillment, order cancellation by you or any 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
us. As between you and us, we are solely responsible for customer service issues relating to any Sail Account, payment, card processing, debiting or crediting.
XX. REFUNDS AND RETURNS.
By accepting payment card transactions using the Services, you agree to process returns of, and provide refunds and adjustments for, your goods or services through your Sail Account in accordance with this Agreement and Network Rules. Network Rules require that you will (a) maintain a fair return, cancellation or adjustment policy; (b) disclose your return or cancellation policy to customers at the time of purchase, (c) not give cash refunds to a customer in connection with a card sale, unless required by law, and (d) not accept cash or any other item of value for preparing a card sale refund. The amount of the refund/adjustment must include any associated taxes required to be refunded and cannot exceed the amount shown as the total on the original sales data except by the exact amount required to reimburse the customer for postage (or other method) that the customer paid to return merchandise. If you accept returns and are making an uneven exchange of merchandise (e.g., the sales price is not the same), you must issue a credit for the total amount of the merchandise being returned and complete a new sale for any new merchandise. Please be aware, if your refund policy prohibits returns or is unsatisfactory to the buyer, you may still receive a chargeback relating to such sales. You can process a refund through your Sail Account up to sixty (60) days from the day you accepted the payment. If your Sail balance is insufficient to cover the refund, we will request your authorization to withdraw up to the requested refund amount from your bank account. We will then withdraw the amount you were paid (the sale amount minus the initial transaction fee) from your bank account, and credit it back into your customer.s card. The Fees are also refunded by us, so the full purchase amount is always returned to your customer. We have no obligation to accept any returns of any of your goods or services on your behalf.
The amount of a transaction may be reversed or charged back to your Sail Account (hereafter, a "Chargeback") if the transaction (a) is disputed, (b) is reversed for any reason by the Network, our processor, or a customer.s or our financial institution, (c) was not authorized or we have any reason to believe that the transaction was not authorized, or (d) is allegedly unlawful, suspicious, or in violation of the terms of this Agreement. For any transaction that results in a Chargeback, we may withhold the Chargeback amount in the Reserve. We may deduct the amount of any Chargeback and any associated Fees, fines, or penalties listed in the Fee Schedule or assessed by the payment card networks or our processor from your Sail Account (including, without limitation, any Reserve), any proceeds due to you, your bank account, or other payment instrument registered with us. If you have pending Chargebacks, we may delay payouts from your Sail 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 customer.s complaint, in which case we will retain the funds; (b) the period of time under applicable law or regulation by which the customer may dispute that the transaction has expired; or (c) we determine that a Chargeback on
the transaction will not occur. If we are unable to recover funds related to a Chargeback for which you are liable, you will pay us the full amount of the Chargeback immediately upon demand. You agree to pay all costs and expenses, including without limitation attorneys' fees and other legal expenses, incurred by or on behalf of us in connection with the collection of all Sail Account deficit balances unpaid by you. If we determine that you are incurring an excessive amount of Chargebacks, we may establish controls or conditions governing your Sail Account, including without limitation, by (a) establishing new processing 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. 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 merchant, the merchant'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 your Sail Account. If a Chargeback dispute is not resolved in your favor by the payment card network 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 timely assist us in investigating a transaction, including providing necessary documentation within fifteen (15) 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.
XXII. OUR SET-OFF RIGHTS.
To the extent permitted by law, we may set off against the Balances for any obligation you owe us under this Agreement, including without limitation any Chargebacks. All Fees are charged at the time we process a transaction and are deducted first from the transferred or collected funds and thereafter from the Balance in your Sail Account. If you owe us an amount that exceeds your Balance, we may charge or debit a payment instrument registered to your Sail Account. Your failure to fully pay 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, costs of any arbitration or court proceeding, collection agency fees, and any applicable interest.
XXIII. INACTIVE SAIL ACCOUNTS.
If there is no activity in your Sail Account (including access or payment transactions) for at least 1 year, consecutively, and you have a Balance, we will notify you by sending an email to your registered email address and give you the option of keeping your Sail Account open and maintaining the Balance, withdrawing the Balance, or requesting a check. If you do not respond to our notice within thirty (30) days, we will automatically close your Sail Account and escheat your funds in accordance with applicable law.

We will attempt to rectify processing errors that we discover. If the error resulted in your receipt of less than the correct amount to which you were entitled, we will credit your Sail Account for the difference.

We will only correct transactions that you process incorrectly if and when you notify us of such an error.

Electronic Communications Disclosure Policy (E-Consent Policy)
Last Update: March 7, 2012 This policy describes how SAIL delivers communications and disclosures to you electronically. We may add to, change or delete any of these terms (so as not to bump up a state law that would prohibit additions without the specific right to add) at any time by posting a revised version of the policy on our website (www.verifone.com) , or sending you a notice by email or in writing. The revised version will be effective immediately as of its posting.
1. Electronic delivery of communications
By agreeing to our E-consent policy, you agree and consent to receive electronically all communications, agreements, documents, notices, billing statements and disclosures (collectively, "Communications") that we provide in connection with your SAIL account ("Account") and your use of our services. You also agree that your electronic signature on any agreements or documents on SAIL has the same effect as a physical signature. We will provide these Communications to you by posting them on the SAIL website and/or by emailing them to you at the email address listed in your SAIL Profile. You may obtain paper copies of any Communications by printing them out, or by contacting us and requesting that we mail paper copies to the address listed in your Account Profile.
2. Electronic Communications requirements
In order to access and retain electronic Communications, you will need the following computer hardware and software: ● a computer with an Internet connection; ● a current web browser that includes 128-bit encryption (e.g. Internet Explorer version 6.0 and above, Firefox version 2.0 and above, Chrome version 3.0 and above, or Safari 3.0 and above) with cookies enabled; ● a valid email address; and
● sufficient storage space to save past Communications and/or an installed printer to print them. We will notify you if there are any changes to the hardware or software needed to receive electronic Communications from SAIL. By giving your consent to our policy, you are confirming that you have access to the necessary equipment and are able to receive, open, and print or download a copy of any Communications for your records. You may print or save a copy of any of these Communications for your records, as they may not be accessible online at a later date.
3. Withdrawal of consent
You may withdraw your consent to receive Communications electronically by contacting us at 855-SAILPAY (855-724-5729), emailing us at email@example.com, or by writing to us at VeriFone, Inc. Attn: Privacy Officer 2099 Gateway Place, Suite 600 San Jose, CA 95110-1093 Fax: (408) 232-7841 If you fail to provide, or if you withdraw, your consent to receive Communications electronically, SAIL reserves the right to deny your application for an Account, restrict or deactivate your Account, or close your Account.
4. Requesting paper copies of electronic Communications
If after you consent to receive Communications electronically, you would like a paper copy of a Communication we previously sent you, you may request a copy within 180 days of the date we provided the Communication to you by contacting us as described above. We will send your paper copy to you by U.S. mail to the street address on file as your “Home Address” in your SAIL Profile. We reserve the right to impose a fee for copies.
5. Updating your contact information
It is your responsibility to keep your email address up-to-date so that SAIL can communicate with you electronically. You understand and agree that if SAIL makes available or sends you an electronic Communication but you do not receive it because your email address on file is incorrect, out of date, blocked by your service provider, or you are otherwise unable to receive electronic Communications, SAIL 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 SAIL to your email address book so that you will be able to receive the Communications we send you. You can update your email address or street address at any time by logging into the SAIL website and visiting the "Account" tab. If your email address becomes invalid such
that electronic Communications sent to you by SAIL are returned, SAIL may deem your Account to be inactive, and you will not be able to transact any activity using your SAIL Account until we receive a valid, working email address from you.
