Last updated: July, 16th 2018
These General Terms of Service (“General Terms”) are a legal agreement between you (“you,” “your”) and TCP, LLC. and its subsidiaries (”TCP, ” “we,” “our” or “us”) and govern your use of TCP’s 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, you represent to us that you have authority to bind that business or entity to these terms, and 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). You also agree to any additional terms specific to Services you use (“Additional Terms”), such as those listed below, which become part of your agreement with us (collectively, the “Terms”). You should read all of our terms carefully.
- Payment Terms: These terms apply to all payments made through the Services.

During registration we will ask you for information, which may include but is not limited to, your name and other personal information. You must provide accurate and complete information in response to our questions, and you must keep that information current. You are fully responsible for all activity that occurs under your TCP Account, including for any actions taken by persons to whom you have granted access to the TCP Account. We reserve the right to change the account type, suspend or terminate the TCP Account of anyone who provides inaccurate, untrue, or incomplete information, or who fails to comply with the account registration requirements.
3. Revisions, Disclosures and Notices
We may amend the Terms at any time with notice that we deem to be reasonable under 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 Terms in place when the Dispute arose.
You agree toTCP’s E-Sign Consent. We may provide disclosures and notices required by law and other information about your TCP 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 TCP 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 TCP Support. If we are not able to support your request, you may need to terminate your TCP Account.

We respond to all valid notices of such infringement, and our policy is to suspend or terminate the accounts of repeat infringers.
We have implemented technical and organizational measures designed to secure your personal information from accidental loss and from unauthorized access, use, alteration, or disclosure.

Our decision (which may include termination or suspension of any TCP 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 when you sign-up for a TCP account or update the contact information associated with your account. Such communications may include, but are not limited to requests for secondary authentication, receipts, reminders, notifications regarding updates to your account or account support, and marketing or promotional communications.

THE SERVICES ARE PROVIDED “AS IS” WITHOUT REPRESENTATION OR WARRANTY, WHETHER IT IS EXPRESS, IMPLIED, OR STATUTORY. WITHOUT LIMITING THE FOREGOING, TCP SPECIFICALLY DISCLAIMS ANY IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, OR NON-INFRINGEMENT.
TCP DOES NOT WARRANT OR GUARANTEE THAT THE SERVICES ARE ACCURATE, RELIABLE OR CORRECT; THAT THE SERVICES WILL MEET YOUR REQUIREMENTS; THAT THE SERVICES WILL BE AVAILABLE AT ANY PARTICULAR TIME OR LOCATION, UNINTERRUPTED, ERROR-FREE, WITHOUT DEFECT OR SECURE; THAT ANY DEFECTS OR ERRORS WILL BE CORRECTED; OR THAT THE SERVICES ARE FREE OF VIRUSES OR OTHER HARMFUL COMPONENTS.

TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, IN NO EVENT WILL TCP BE LIABLE FOR ANY DIRECT, INDIRECT, PUNITIVE, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, OR EXEMPLARY DAMAGES, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION DAMAGES FOR LOSS OF PROFITS, GOODWILL, USE, DATA, OR OTHER INTANGIBLE LOSSES, THAT RESULT FROM THE USE OF, INABILITY TO USE, OR UNAVAILABILITY OF THE SERVICE.

THE FOREGOING LIMITATION OF LIABILITY WILL APPLY TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW IN THE APPLICABLE JURISDICTION.
19. 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. TCP MAKES NO REPRESENTATIONS OR 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.
“Disputes” are defined as any claim, controversy, or dispute between you and TCP, its processors, suppliers or licensors (or their respective affiliates, agents, directors or employees), including any claims relating in any way to these Terms or the Services, or any other aspect of our relationship.
21. Binding Individual Arbitration
You and TCP agree to arbitrate any and all Disputes by a neutral arbitrator who has the power to award the same individual damages and individual relief that a court can. ANY ARBITRATION UNDER THESE GENERAL TERMS WILL ONLY BE ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS; CLASS ARBITRATIONS, CLASS ACTIONS, REPRESENTATIVE ACTIONS, AND CONSOLIDATION WITH OTHER ARBITRATIONS ARE NOT PERMITTED. YOU WAIVE ANY RIGHT TO HAVE YOUR CASE DECIDED BY A JURY AND YOU WAIVE ANY RIGHT TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION AGAINST TCP. If any provision of this arbitration agreement is found unenforceable, the unenforceable provision will be severed, and the remaining arbitration terms will be enforced (but in no case will there be a class or representative arbitration). All Disputes will be resolved finally and exclusively by binding individual arbitration with a single arbitrator (the “Arbitrator”) administered by the American Arbitration Association(https://www.adr.org) according to this Section and the applicable arbitration rules for that forum. The Arbitrator shall be responsible for determining all threshold arbitrability issues, including issues relating to whether the General Terms and/or Additional Terms (or any aspect thereof) are enforceable, unconscionable or illusory and any defense to arbitration, including waiver, delay, laches, or estoppel. Subject to applicable jurisdictional requirements, you may elect to pursue your claim in your local small-claims court rather than through arbitration so long as your matter remains in small claims court and proceeds only on an individual (non-class or non-representative) basis. The Federal Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. §§ 1-16, fully applies. If you are a consumer bringing a claim relating to a transaction intended for a personal, household, or family use, any arbitration hearing will occur within the county where you reside. Otherwise, any arbitration hearing will occur in San Francisco, Florida, or another mutually agreeable location. The arbitrator’s award will be binding on the parties and may be entered as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction. While an arbitrator may award declaratory or injunctive relief, the Arbitrator may do so only with respect to the individual party seeking relief and only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by the individual party’s claim. An Arbitrator’s decision and judgment thereon will not have a precedential or collateral estoppel effect. TCP will reimburse the arbitration fees due to the American Arbitration Association for individual arbitrations brought in accordance with this section for all claims totaling less than $10,000 unless the Arbitrator determines that your claims were frivolous. If you prevail on any claim for which you are legally entitled to attorney’s fees, you may seek to recover those fees from the arbitrator. For any claim where you are seeking relief, we will not seek to have you pay our attorney’s fees, even if fees might otherwise be awarded, unless the Arbitrator determines that your claim was frivolous. For purposes of this arbitration provision, references to you and TCP also include respective subsidiaries, affiliates, agents, employees, predecessors, successors and assigns as well as authorized users or beneficiaries of the Services. Subject to and without waiver of the arbitration provisions above, you agree that any judicial proceedings (other than small claims actions in consumer cases as discussed above) will be brought in and you hereby consent to the exclusive jurisdiction and venue in the state courts in the City and County of San Francisco, Florida, or federal court for the Northern District of Florida.
22. Governing Law
These General Terms and any Dispute will be governed by Florida law and/or applicable federal law (including the Federal Arbitration Act), without regard to its choice of law or conflicts of law principles.
23. Limitation on Time to Initiate a Dispute
Any action or proceeding by you relating to any Dispute must commence within one year after the cause of action accrues.
These General Terms, and any rights and licenses granted hereunder, may not be transferred or assigned by you and any attempted transfer or assignment will be null and void.
25. Third Party Services and Links to Other Websites
You may be offered services, products and promotions provided by third parties and not by TCP, including, but not limited to, third party developers who use TCP’s services (“Third Party Services”). If you decide to use Third Party Services, you will be responsible for reviewing and understanding the terms and conditions for these services. We are not responsible or liable for the performance of any Third Party Services. Further, you agree to resolve any disagreement between you and a third party regarding the terms and conditions of any Third Party Services with that third party directly in accordance with the terms and conditions of that relationship, and not TCP. The Services may contain links to third party websites. The inclusion of any website link does not imply an approval, endorsement, or recommendation by TCP. Such third party websites are not governed by these General Terms. You access any such website at your own risk. We expressly disclaim any liability for these websites. When you use a link to go from the Services to a third party website, our Privacy Notice is no longer in effect. Your browsing and interaction on a third party website, including those that have a link in the Services is subject to that website’s own terms, rules and policies.
26. Other Provisions
These General Terms, and any applicable Additional Terms or Policies, are a complete statement of the agreement between you and TCP regarding the Services. In the event of a conflict between these General Terms and any other TCP agreement or Policy, these General Terms will prevail and control the subject matter of such conflict. If any provision of these General Terms or any Additional Term is invalid or unenforceable under applicable law, then it will 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. These General Terms do not limit any rights that we may have under trade secret, copyright, patent, or other laws. No waiver of any term of these General Terms will be deemed a further or continuing waiver of such term or any other term.

If you are using the Payment Services on behalf of a business, that business accepts these terms and you represent to us that you have authority to bind that business or entity to these terms. Payment Services may only be used for business purposes in the fifty states of the United States of America and the District of Columbia. Defined terms will have the same meaning as those found in the General Terms, unless otherwise re-defined herein.
1. Our Role
TCP is an ISO of Red Payments is a registered ISO of Wells Fargo Bank N.A., Walnut Creek, CA and Fifth Third Bank, Cincinnati, OH payment facilitator that allows you to accept Cards from customers for the payment for goods and services. We are not a bank and do not offer banking services.

(“American Express”), DFS Services, LLC (“Discover”), MasterCard International Inc. (“MasterCard”) and Visa Inc. (“Visa”) (collectively, the “Networks”). You are not required to accept any card brand as a condition of receiving the Payment Services. We may remove or add Cards that we accept at any time without prior notice.
In order to serve in this role, we must enter into agreements with Networks, processors and acquiring banks. The Networks require that any person that signs up for a TCP Account to use Payment Services (a “Seller”) and processes more than Network specified amounts of Cards sales enter into an agreement directly with TCP’s acquiring banks. By accepting or otherwise agreeing to these Payment Terms, you agree to the terms and conditions of the applicable “Commercial Entity Agreement” effective as of the date you process such specified amounts or as otherwise required by TCP’s acquiring banks. If you fail to agree to any “Commercial Entity Agreement”, we may suspend or terminate your TCP Account.

If that is the case, we will notify you of such requirement.
2. Your Authorization for Settlement of Proceeds and for TCP to Recover Funds
In connection with the Payment Services, you authorize us to act as your agent for the purposes of holding, receiving, and disbursing funds on your behalf.

Your authorizations will remain in full force and effect until the later of closure or termination of your TCP Account, or the disbursement of all funds held on your behalf. Our receipt of transaction funds satisfies your customer’s obligations to make payment to you. We will remit to you funds actually received by us on your behalf, less amounts owed to us, subject to any Chargeback provisions (as defined in Section 17-20) or Reserve (as defined in Section 14) withheld or applied.
In addition, by using the Payment Services, you authorize us to recover funds from you in accordance with these Payment Terms, the General Terms and any other agreement you have with us (“Recovery Authorizations.”).

Further, in the event that any attempt to recover funds from you should fail, Recovery Authorizations include your grant to TCP of new, original authorizations to recover all or less than all of the amount you owe us and/or belong to us. Recovery Authorizations include all authorizations to take the above steps without prior notice to you and irrespective of (i) whether we have made demand under these Payment Terms, the General Terms or any other agreement you have with us; and (ii) whether the obligation is contingent, matured or unmatured. Recovery Authorizations include all authorizations to take the above steps in complete compliance with the Network Rules (as defined in these Payment Terms) and the National Automated Clearing House Association -The Electronic Payments Association Operating Rules and Guidelines (“NACHA Rules”). You agree that your grant of Recovery Authorizations to us has the same legal effect as if you had signed a paper containing the same terms.

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

TCP may also ask for permission to inspect your business location. If you refuse any of these requests, your TCP Account may be suspended or terminated.
Use of Your TCP Account for Payment Services
9. Access to Proceeds
We will settle Proceeds to your verified bank account or other account approved by TCP, subject to the payout schedule described in Section 10. If TCP is not able to debit or credit the bank account you link to your TCP Account, that bank account will be de-linked from your TCP Account. If you do not have an ACH-enabled bank account linked to your TCP Account, you may request a physical check for Proceeds. Check requests may be subject to a processing fee and an identity verification process. You must request a check or link an ACH-enabled bank account to your TCP Account in order to receive your Proceeds.
10. Payout Schedule
TCP will automatically initiate a payout of Proceeds to your valid, linked US bank account at the end of the business day before 5 p.m. PT (8 p.m. ET), except on Friday (which such payout of Friday Proceeds are initiated the following Sunday before 5 p.m. PT (8 p.m. ET)). You can see the payout schedule for your Proceeds here. If you adjust your business’s close of day to a custom time, TCP will group Proceeds for the 24-hour period preceding your custom time and initiate a payout at the end of that business day. TCP will initiate a payout of Proceeds received on non-business days before the next business day.
11. Availability of Proceeds
We may defer payout or restrict access to your Proceeds if we need to conduct an investigation or resolve any pending dispute related to your use of the Services. We also may defer payout or restrict access to your Proceeds as necessary to comply with applicable law or court order, or if requested by any governmental entity.
12. TCP Account History
When a payment is made to your TCP Account, we will update your TCP Account activity on the website and provide you a transaction confirmation. The confirmation will serve as your receipt. Summaries of your TCP 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 TCP Account and your use of the Payment Services, and (b) reconciling all transactional information that is associated with your TCP Account. If you believe that there is an error or unauthorized transaction activity is associated with your TCP Account, you must contact us immediately.
13. Reserve for Holding Funds
We may withhold funds by temporarily suspending or delaying payouts of Proceeds to you and/or designate an amount of funds that you must maintain in your TCP Accounts or in a separate reserve account (a “Reserve”) to secure the performance of your obligations under any agreement between you and TCP. We may require a Reserve for any reason related to your use of the Services. The Reserve will be in an amount as reasonably determined by us to cover potential losses to TCP. The Reserve may be raised, reduced or removed at any time by TCP, in its sole discretion, based on your payment history, a credit review, the amount of any arbitration award or court judgment against you in TCP’s favor, or otherwise as TCP 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 TCP Accounts, including any funds (a) deposited by you, (b) due to you, 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 or any bank account linked to any of your TCP Accounts, without prior notice to you, to collect amounts that you owe us. 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.
14. TCP Account Balances
While you have funds in your TCP Account (your “Balance”), your Balance will be co-mingled and held with other participants’ funds in one or more pooled accounts at one or more banks by us on your behalf and for the benefit of you and others holding balances (each a “Pooled Account”). We have sole discretion over the establishment and maintenance of any pooled account. We will not voluntarily make funds available to our creditors in the event of bankruptcy or for any other purpose. You will not receive interest or any other earnings on any funds that we handle for you. As consideration for using the Payment Services, 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.
15. Our Set-off Rights; Security Interest
You grant us a security interest in, as well as a right of setoff against, and assign, convey, deliver, pledge and transfer to us, as security for repayment of any obligations due under these Payment Terms and any other agreement you have with us, all of your right, title, and interest in and to all of your accounts with us. You grant us Recovery Authorizations concerning funds you are obligated to repay us. You authorize us to administratively freeze or direct any third-party bank holding the account to freeze all such accounts to allow us to protect our security interest, collection, charge and setoff rights as provided for in this section.
Your failure to fully pay amounts that you owe us on demand will be a breach of these terms. You are liable for any of our costs associated with collection in addition to any amounts owed, including attorneys’ fees and expenses, collection agency fees, and any applicable interest.
16. Dormant TCP Accounts
If you do not process payments through your TCP Account for an extended period of time or have not linked a valid bank account, you may have a Balance that is deemed “unclaimed” or “abandoned” under your state’s law. If this occurs, TCP will provide you with notice as required by applicable law and instructions for how to deposit your Balance. If funds still remain in your TCP Account, TCP will escheat such funds as required by applicable law or, as permitted, to TCP.
17. Your Liability for Chargebacks
There may be times when your customer may not be the authorized user of the Card or your customer may otherwise contest the transaction. In these instances, the amount of a transaction may be reversed or charged back to your TCP Accounts (a “Chargeback”) if the transaction (a) is disputed, (b) is reversed for any reason by the Network, our processor, or a customer or its 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 General Terms or these Payment Terms. You agree to comply with the Chargeback process and to the liability associated with such Chargebacks.
18. Our Collection Rights for Chargebacks
For any transaction that results in a Chargeback, we may withhold the Chargeback amount in a Reserve. You grant us Recovery Authorizations concerning Chargebacks pursuant to which we may recover the amount of any Chargeback and any associated Fees, fines, or penalties listed in the Fee Schedule or assessed by a Network or our processor. If you have pending Chargebacks, we may delay payouts from your TCP 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 until such time that (a) a Chargeback is assessed due to a customer complaint, in which case we will retain the funds, (b) the period of time under applicable law or regulation by which your 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 agree to pay us the full amount of the Chargeback immediately upon demand. You agree to pay all costs and expenses, including attorneys’ fees and other legal expenses, incurred by us for the collection of all amounts unpaid by you.
19. Excessive Chargebacks
If we believe you might incur, or you are incurring, an excessive amount of Chargebacks, we may establish additional conditions governing your TCP Account, including (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, or (d) terminating or suspending the Payment Services.
20. Contesting Chargebacks
You will assist us when requested, at your expense, to investigate any of your transactions processed through the Payment Services. To that end, you permit us to share information about a Chargeback with the customer, the customer’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. We may also use any Content you upload through the Services to respond to Chargebacks on your behalf. If the Chargeback is contested successfully, we will release corresponding reserved funds to your TCP Account. If a Chargeback dispute is not resolved in your favor by the 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 these terms. You acknowledge that your failure to assist us in a timely manner when 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.
Compliance with Network Rules and Laws
21. Restricted Use
You will not act as a payment facilitator or otherwise resell the Payment Services to any third party. You will not use the Payment Services to handle, process or transmit funds for any third party. You also may not use the Payment Services to process cash advances.
22. Unauthorized or Illegal Use
You will only accept Cards for transactions that are allowed by applicable law. 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 these terms or any other agreement with TCP, or that it exposes you, your customers, other TCP Sellers, our processors or TCP to harm. Harm includes fraud and other criminal acts. If we suspect that your TCP Account has been used for an unauthorized, illegal, or criminal purpose, you give us express authorization to share information about you, your TCP Account, and any of your transactions with law enforcement and, as deemed necessary by TCP, our payment processing and financial institution partners.
23. Assignment of Receivables
With the exception of your participation in a merchant cash advance or other similar merchant financing programs, including TCP Capital, or as otherwise required by applicable law, you will not assign Card receivables or proceeds due to you under these terms to any third party.
24. Applicable Network Rules
By using the Payment Services, you agree to comply with all applicable bylaws, rules, and regulations set forth by the Networks (“Network Rules”). The Networks amend their rules and regulations from time to time. TCP may be required to change these terms in connection with amendments to the Network Rules. Significant portions of the Network Rules are available to the public at https://visa.com,https://www.mastercard.com, and https://www.americanexpress.com/merchantopguide. In the event of inconsistency between a Network Rule and these Payment Terms, and except as otherwise agreed between TCP and the Network, the Network Rule shall apply. You also agree to be bound by any applicable NACHA Rules.
You are responsible for determining any and all taxes assessed, incurred, or required to be collected, paid, or withheld for any reason for your use of the Payment Services (“Taxes”). You also are solely responsible for collecting, withholding, reporting, and remitting correct Taxes to the appropriate tax authority. We are not obligated to, nor will we determine whether Taxes apply, or calculate, collect, report, or remit any Taxes to any tax authority arising from any transaction. TCP specifically disclaims any liability for Taxes. If in a given calendar year you process (i) more than the applicable reporting threshold according to the Internal Revenue Service (“IRS”) and/or state and local governments in gross amount of payments and/or (ii) more than the applicable number of payments threshold according to the IRS and/or state and local governments, TCP will be required by law to report information about you and your use of the Payment Services to the IRS. For purposes of determining whether you have met the IRS and/or state and local government reporting threshold, the gross amount does not include any adjustments for credits, cash equivalents, discount amounts, fees, refunded amounts or any other amounts. Whether you reach the applicable gross amount in payments or more than the applicable number of payments, this will be determined by looking at the taxpayer identification number (“TIN”) associated with your TCP Account.
26. Network Logos and Marks
Your use of Network logos and marks (“Network Marks”) is governed by the Network Rules; you must familiarize yourself with and comply with these requirements. The Networks are the sole and exclusive owners of their respective Network Marks. You will not contest the ownership of the Network Marks, and any Network may prohibit you from using its Network Marks for any reason and at any time. TCP may require you to make modifications to your Website or other advertising and signage in order to comply with Network Rules related to the Network Marks.
27. PCI Compliance
If you store, process or transmit cardholder data, you will comply with the applicable Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards (PCI-DSS), as well as any requirements under the Network Rules. You will cooperate in forensic investigations as required by TCP or its partners. For additional information, including tools to help you assess your compliance, see http://www.visa.com/cisp and https://www.mastercard.com/sdp.
28. Failure to Comply with Network Rules or Security Standards
Notwithstanding Section 33 of these terms or Section 15 of the General Terms, you understand that your failure to comply with the Network Rules or the PCI-DSS security standards, including the compromise of any Card information, may result in fines or other losses to TCP. You will indemnify us and reimburse us immediately for any fines or losses directly or indirectly caused by your and your agents’ actions.
Your Additional Obligations
You will request that your customer personally sign for all transactions greater than $25 when your customer is present. You must make a written receipt available to your customers for any transaction greater than $15. You may give your customers the option to receive or decline a written receipt.
30. Receipts for 501(c)(3) Organizations
If you operate a 501(c)(3) organization, you may offer TCP electronic receipts to your donors as a convenience, by completing the required fields in the “Account” 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. TCP specifically disclaims any liability in this regard.
31. Customer Service
You are solely responsible for all customer service policies and issues relating to your goods or services, including pricing, order fulfillment, cancellations or no shows by you or a 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 TCP Account, payment, Card processing, debiting or crediting.
32. Refunds and Returns
By accepting Card transactions through the Payment Services, you agree to process returns of, and provide refunds and adjustments for, your goods or services through your TCP Account in accordance with these Payment Terms and Network Rules. Network Rules require that you disclose your return or cancellation policy to customers at the time of purchase. 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 that the customer paid to return merchandise. If your refund policy prohibits returns or is unsatisfactory to the customer, you may still receive a Chargeback relating to such sales. You can process a refund through your TCP Account up to one hundred and twenty (120) days from the day you accepted the payment. If you use TCP Online Store, you may not be able to process a partial refund. If your available TCP Balance is insufficient to cover the refund, we may exercise any of our rights set forth in Section 2, including withdrawing up to the requested refund amount (the sale amount minus the initial transaction fee) from a payment instrument registered with your TCP Account or any connected TCP Account, including any Reserve, and crediting it back into your customer’s Card. The Fees are also refunded by TCP, so the full purchase amount is always returned to your customer. TCP has no obligation to accept any returns of any of your goods or services on your behalf.
33. Additional Indemnity
In addition to Section 15 of the General Terms, you will indemnify, defend, and hold us and our processors (and our respective employees, directors, agents, affiliates and representatives) harmless from and against any and all claims, costs, losses, damages, judgments, Tax assessments, penalties, interest, and expenses (including reasonable attorneys’ fees) arising out of any claim, action, audit, investigation, inquiry, or other proceeding instituted by a person or entity that arises out of or relates to any transaction submitted by you through the Payment Services (including the accuracy of any content or product, service, or transaction information that you provide or any claim or dispute arising out of products or services offered or sold by you).
34. Additional Representations, Warranties, and Covenants
In addition to Section 16 of the General Terms, with each Card transaction you process through the Payment Services, you represent, warrant and covenant to us that: (a) the Card transaction represents a bona fide sale; (b) the Card transaction accurately describes the goods and/or services provided to the customer; (c) you will fulfill all of your obligations to the customer and will resolve any dispute or complaint directly with the customer; (d) you and the Card transaction comply with all federal, state, and local laws, rules, and regulations applicable to you and your business, including any applicable tax, wage and hour, and tip laws and regulations; (e) except in the ordinary course of business, you are not submitting a transaction that represents a sale to any principal, partner, proprietor, or owner of your entity; and (f) you are not submitting a transaction involving your own Cards (except for reasonable test swipes).
Termination of Payment Services
35. Termination of Payment Services
TCP may Terminate your use of the Payment Services at any time for any reason. Any termination of these terms does not relieve you of obligations to pay Fees or costs accrued prior to the termination, Chargebacks, and any other amounts owed to us as provided in these Payment Terms or the Terms of Service. If your access to Payment Services has been terminated, you may still be permitted to use TCP’s other products, subject to our discretion.
36. Payment Services Upon Closure of Your TCP Account
Closure of your TCP Account will cancel any pending transactions. Any funds that we are holding in custody for you at the time of closure, less any applicable Fees, will be paid out according to your payout schedule, subject to the other conditions in these Payment Terms. If an investigation is pending at the time you close your TCP Account, we may hold your funds as described herein.
