5.3. Program Description. The Business Account is an account made available to the Business Account Owner to facilitate the issuance of Cards that may be used by Authorized Users for commercial business purposes. The Business Account Owner agrees to accept sole and complete responsibility for the actions of its Business Administrator each Authorized User. Each Card Account is a notional sub-account of the Business Account that will enable the Business Account Owner to track the balance of funds allocated to the Card linked to such Card Account. The Card Account allows Authorized Users to access funds allocated to the Card Account by the Business Administrator, subject to the limitations established by the Business Administrator. Neither the Business Account nor a Card Account constitutes a checking or savings account. The Card is not a gift card, nor is it intended to be used for gifting purposes. The Card is not a credit card. Business Account Owner will not receive any interest on the funds in the Business Account or any Card Account. The Card will remain the property of the Bank and must be surrendered upon demand. The Card cannot be redeemed for cash. The Card is nontransferable and may be canceled or revoked, at any time without prior notice, except as required by law. The Business Administrator will determine whether a Card issued to an Authorized User will be a physical Card or virtual Card. The Bank may, in its sole discretion, limit the number of Cards that may be issued on behalf of the Business Account Owner. The Business Administrator shall have full power and agrees to administer the Business Account and each Card Account only as described in this Agreement and as duly authorized by the Business Account Owner. The Business Administrator will be authorized to limit or restrict the activity on all Cards, with or without the consent of any Authorized User. The Business Administrator will also be authorized to make changes to the Card Account. The Business Account Owner is the owner of all funds in the Business Account and allocated to any Card Account at all times and is solely responsible for ensuring that the Card shall only be used as authorized by the Business Account Owner. Business Account Owner acknowledges and agrees that the value available in the Business Account and any Card Account is limited to the funds that have been added to the Business Account or allocated to any Card Account pursuant to these Terms. The funds in the Business Account and associated with any Card Accounts are insured by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (“FDIC”) for up to the maximum amount as published by the FDIC, from time to time.
5.4. Funding of the Business Account. Subject to the limitations set forth in this Agreement, Business Administrator may only add funds to the Business Account as described in this Section. Business Administrator may not add funds to the Business Account by sending personal checks, cashier’s checks, or money orders to the Bank. The Bank will return all checks and money orders unless the Business Account has a negative balance, in which case the Bank may, in its sole discretion, apply the proceeds of the check or money order towards the negative balance of the Business Account.
5.4.1. Bank Account Transfer. Business Administrator may authorize us to electronically debit Business Account Owner’s designated deposit account at Business Account Owner’s designated U.S. depository financial institution (“Bank Account”) via the Automated Clearinghouse Network (“ACH”) for a specified amount on a one-time or recurring basis and add such amount to the Business Account. Business Administrator may provide such authorization and Business Account Owner’s Bank Account information via the Website. Amounts debited from the Bank Account will be added to the Business Account, generally within three (3) business days of when we receive the authorization and all required consents and information.
5.5. Establishing Card Account Settings. A Business Administrator may set certain limits (“Settings”) for each Card and the allocated Card Account through the Website. Authorized Users will not be permitted to establish or modify the Settings. For example, a Business Administrator may establish Settings that limit the amount of funds that may be allocated to a Card Account, the categories of purchases that may be authorized for a Card Account, or the amount of transactions that may be performed with a Card in a day or month. A Business Administrator may change the Settings, from time to time, via the Website without an Authorized User’s consent. New Settings and changes to existing Settings will be effective only after we have a reasonable period of time to process the new settings or changes.
5.6. Cancellation and Suspension. In addition to and without limiting our rights under this Agreement, a Business Administrator may suspend or cancel a Card Account at any time by changing the Settings on the Website (See Section titled “Establishing Card Account Settings” above). Upon the suspension or cancellation of a Card Account, the Authorized User may no longer be able to use the Card Account or the associated Card.
5.7. Transaction Requirements. Transactions approved and processed with the Card may only be used to purchase goods and services for business purposes only and not for personal, family or household purposes.
5.8. Authorized User Eligibility and Consents. When a Business Administrator notifies us to revoke the permission of an Authorized User we will close the applicable Card Account and Authorized User will no longer be able to use the Card once such revocation is processed.
5.9. Revocation of Authorized User Privileges. A Business Administrator must modify the Settings on the Website or notify Customer Service to revoke permission for an Authorized User to use the Card Account. Any revocation of such permission will be effective only after we have a reasonable period of time to process Business Account Owner’s withdrawal.
5.10. Revocation of Business Administrator Privileges. Business Account Owner must notify us via e-mail at email@example.com to revoke permission for any Business Administrator to administer the Card Account. Any revocation of such permission will be effective only after we have a reasonable period of time to process Business Account Owner’s withdrawal.
5.11. Card. The Card is not a gift card. The Card remains the property of the Bank and must be returned upon our request. To the extent permitted by applicable law, Bank may cancel, repossess, or revoke the Card at any time without prior notice. The Card cannot be redeemed for cash. The Card is not for resale and may not be transferred or assigned. You acknowledge and agree that when you have both a virtual Card and a physical Card that both Cards access the same Business Account.
5.12. Activating a Card. You must activate a physical Card before it can be used. You may activate a physical Card by using the Finvari mobile app, or by logging in to your Finvari dashboard and completing an online activation. In order to activate a physical Card you will need to provide certain User Information so we can verify your identity. Business Administrator may activate a virtual Card on the Website.
5.13. Transactions in Foreign Currencies. If an Authorized User makes a purchase using your Card in a currency other than in U.S. Dollars ($), the amount deducted from the available funds in the Card Account will be converted by Mastercard into U.S. Dollars, plus any applicable fees. The applicable exchange rate will be selected by Mastercard from the range of rates available in wholesale currency markets for the applicable central processing date, which may vary from the rate Mastercard itself receives or the government-mandated rate. The exchange rate used on the central processing date may be different than the rate that was in effect on the date you performed the transaction.
5.14. Business Account. You acknowledge and agree that the value available in your Business Account is limited to the funds that have been added to your Business Account as described by the funding process as described in the Section titled “Funding of the Business Account.” You will not receive any interest on the funds in your Card Account.
5.15. Card and PIN Security. In some instances, Finvari may require Business Administrators and Authorized Users to create a PIN. When selecting a PIN for a physical Card, Business Administrator and / or Authorized Users should not use numbers or words that appear in their wallets (e.g., your date of birth, address, or social security number). Business Administrator and Authorized Users must memorize PINs and not share them with anyone. Do not write the PIN on a Card or keep it in the same location as the Card. Business Administrator and Authorized Users should treat the Card with the same care as cash. Always protect the Card and keep it in a safe place. Do not send a Card number in an email or text message. Make sure Card and Access Information is secured with encryption when used to perform transactions over the Internet or wireless networks.
5.16. Lost or Stolen Card, Unauthorized Access to Business Account or Compromised PIN. The Card is a commercial Card and does not provide consumer protections for lost or stolen Cards or unauthorized transactions. Treat the Card Account like cash. Until a Business Administrator or Authorized User reports a Card as lost or stolen or reports an unauthorized transaction on a Business Account or Card Account, Business Account Owner is fully responsible for all transactions, even if the Card is lost, stolen or used for unauthorized transactions. Contact Customer Service IMMEDIATELY if a Business Administrator or Authorized User believes: (a) a Card has been lost or stolen, (b) someone has gained unauthorized access to any Access Information, or (c) someone has transferred or may transfer funds from the Business Account or Card without a Business Administrator’s or Authorized User’s permission. Reporting a lost/stolen Card or unauthorized transactions by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org, or by logging into the Website or using the Finvari mobile app to pause the Card is the best way to minimize possible losses. Unless we have authorized a transaction after a Card is paused or Business Account or Card is blocked (See Section titled “Our Liability to Business Account Owner”), Business Account Owner is responsible for all unauthorized transactions initiated and fees incurred from the unauthorized use of a Card. Failure to promptly notify us could result in the Business Account Owner losing ALL of the money in the Business Account and the associated Card Accounts. In the event that the Mastercard MasterCoverage Liability Protection Program is applicable to the Cards and/or Card Accounts, Business Account Owner’s losses shall be modified pursuant to that policy.
5.17. Using Your Card. Cards may not be used for ATM cash withdrawals. Card may not be used for cash back at the point-of-sale and may not be used for business payroll payments. An Authorized User may use a Card to make purchases at any merchant that accepts Mastercard commercial cards, subject to the available Card Account balance, the transaction limits and transaction restrictions outlined below, and the other terms and condition of this Agreement. If an Authorized User uses a Card number without presenting the Card (such as for a mail order, telephone, or Internet purchase), the legal effect will be the same as if the Authorized User used the Card itself. Each time an Authorized Users uses the Card, Business Account Owner authorizes us to reduce the value available in the Card Account and Business Account by the amount of the transaction and any applicable fees. An Authorized User is not allowed to exceed the amount of the available funds in the Card Account through an individual transaction or a series of transactions. Nevertheless, if a transaction exceeds the amount of available funds in the Business Account, the funds allocated to an Authorized User’s Card Account or the funds allocated to a Card, Business Account Owner will be fully liable to us for the full amount of the transaction and any applicable fees. We may refuse to process a transaction, or temporarily “freeze” a Card, an Authorized User’ Card Account and/or a Business Account and attempt to contact a Business Administrator if we notice transactions that are unusual or appear suspicious, or use of a Card, Authorized User’s Card Account and/or Business Account that are not consistent with its intended use.
5.18. Merchant Holds on Available Funds. When an Authorized User uses a Card or Card number to initiate a transaction at certain merchant locations, websites, or mobile applications such as hotels, restaurants, gas stations, and rental car companies, where the final purchase amount is unknown at the time of authorization, a hold may be placed on the available funds in the Card Account for an amount equal to or in excess of the final transaction amount. The funds subject to the hold will not be available to the Business Account Owner or Authorized User for any other purpose until the merchant sends us the final transaction amount. Once we receive the final transaction amount, it may take up to seven (7) days for the hold to be removed. During that period, the Business Account Owner and Authorized User will not have access to the funds subject to the hold. Please be advised that an Authorized User may experience difficulties using your physical Card at unattended vending machines, kiosks, and gas station pumps. If a Card is declined at a “pay at the pump” gas station even though the Authorized User has sufficient funds available, the Authorized User should pay for your purchase inside with the cashier.
5.19. Transaction Limits. The maximum amount that can be spent using your Card limited to lower of: (a) the limits set by the Business Administrator, (b) the limits set forth by Finvari and (b) limits set forth by the Bank. The Bank’s limits are: (1) maximum amount that can be spent using your Card is $50,000 per transaction, (2) maximum amount that can be spent using your Card is $100,000 per day, and (3) maximum amount that can be spent using your Card is $250,000 per month. In order to protect your Card Account, we may temporarily impose limits on the dollar amount, number, and type of transactions performed using your Card and your Card Account. To the extent permitted by applicable law, we reserve the right to: (a) change the transaction limits; (b) limit, block, or place a hold on certain types of transfers or transactions: and (c) limit, suspend, or block transfers from particular persons, entities, or Card Accounts.
5.20. Transaction Restrictions. Authorized User may not use a Card for online gambling or illegal transactions. Using the Finvari platform, a Business Administrator may restrict transactions based on Merchant Category Code, Merchant ID or Merchant Name, purchases originating outside of the United States, or purchases made to sellers outside of the United States. We may refuse to process any transaction we believe violates the terms of this Agreement.
5.21. Responsibility for Authorized Transactions. Business Account Owner is responsible for all transactions initiated and fees incurred by use of a Card and a Card Account. If a Business Administrator or an Authorized User permit another person to have access to a Card or Card Account Card number, we will treat this as if the Business Administrator has authorized such person to use the Card Account, and Business Account Owner will be liable for all transactions and fees incurred by such person, even if they exceed the authorization granted. Business Account Owner will further be responsible for any transactions made and any fees incurred by the Authorized User even if the Authorized User exceeds the scope of the authority granted to such Authorized User by Business Account Owner. Transactions will be considered unauthorized only after a Business Administrator notifies us that the person is no longer authorized to use the Card.
5.22. Card Account Balance. It is important to know the amount of available funds in the Card Account before performing a transaction with a Card. If there are not sufficient funds in the Card Account to cover the transaction amount, the transaction will be declined. If Authorized User does not have sufficient funds in the Card Account, Authorized User can request that the merchant charge a part of the purchase to the Card Account and pay the remaining amount with cash or another card. These are called “split transactions”. Some merchants do not allow cardholders to conduct split transactions. Business Account Owner acknowledges and agrees that the funds available to perform transactions are limited to the available funds that have been added to the Card Account that are not subject to a hold. An Authorized User is not authorized to use any funds added to the Card Account in error. Any transaction that could create a negative balance for the Business Account or Card Account is not permitted, but may occur in limited circumstances. Adjustments may be made to the Card Account to reverse an error, reflect a merchant adjustment, or resolve a dispute regarding a transaction posted to the Card Account. These processing and adjustment entries could cause the Business Account or Card Account to have a negative balance. If a Business Account or Card Account has a negative balance, Business Account Owner agrees: (a) that the balance of Business Account can be adjusted to reflect that amount; (b) that we may automatically apply any subsequent deposits to the Business Account to satisfy the negative balance and (c) to pay us on demand by ACH, a business check, money order, or other payment method authorized by us for the amount of the negative balance. If no future funds are added to the Card Account, we may send Business Account Owner a notice explaining the reason for the adjustment and requesting payment by ACH, a business check, money order, or other payment method to satisfy the negative balance. Payments should be mailed to us at the address provided below or the address stated in the applicable notice.
5.23. Transaction History. A Business Administrator may obtain information about the available funds in the Business Account or a Card Account and a 60-day history of the Card Account transactions on the Website.
5.24. Account Alerts. If a Business Administrator and Authorized User provide e-mail addresses to us, we will send the Business Administrator and Authorized User important notices via e-mail about the Card Account. If a Business Administrator and Authorized User provide mobile phone number or other text message addresses to us, we will be entitled to assume that the Business Account Owner has obtained the express consent of such persons to receive text messages relating to the Card Account at that number or address. In addition, the Business Account Owner agrees that important notices will be sent via a Finvari mobile app to the Business Administrator and Authorized Users about the Card Account. The Business Account Owner agrees that the Business Administrator and each Authorized User may change the frequency of notifications at any time by updating their notification setting on the website or in the mobile app. Third-party data and message fees may apply. Business Account Owner has obtained all required legal consent for any non-public personal information regarding Authorized Users or other natural persons, including, without limitation, email addresses or cell phone numbers, that Business Account Owner or its agents may provide to us in furtherance of this Agreement.
5.25. Verified Mobile Device. In order for the Business Administrator or Authorized User to use Program services with a mobile device, each must download the Finvari mobile app, provide a valid mobile device number or text message address on the Website and verify such number or text message address as instructed by us. To verify that mobile device number or text message address, we may send a code via text message to the mobile device number or text message address provided, and require the code to be entered as instructed by us. If the mobile device number or text message address changes, the Business Administrator or Authorized User must promptly provide and verify the new mobile device number or text message address.
5.26. Receipts. An Authorized User should get a receipt for each Card transaction. Business Account Owner agrees to retain, verify, and reconcile Card transactions and receipts.
5.27. Refunds and Disputes. An Authorized User will not receive cash refunds for Card transactions. If a merchant gives an Authorized User a credit for merchandise returns or adjustments, the merchant may do so by processing a credit adjustment, which we will credit to the available funds in the Card Account. We are not responsible for the delivery, quality, safety, legality, or any other aspects of goods or services that Authorized Users purchase with a Card. All such disputes must be addressed and handled directly with the merchant from whom those goods or services were purchased.
5.28. Replacement Cards. The expiration date of a Card is identified either on the front or the back of the Card. If there is a positive balance of funds in the Card Account upon expiration of a Card and the Card Account is in good standing, we may issue Authorized User a new Card. We may also issue a new Card when the Card expires even if there are no funds in the Card Account. If an Authorized User needs to replace a Card for any reason, please contact a Business Administrator, who, in turn, should contact Customer Service. Business Account Owner, Business Administrator, and Authorized Users will need to provide certain User Information so we can verify their identity.
5.29. Our Liability to Business Account Owner. If we do not complete an electronic fund transfer to or from a Card on time or in the correct amount according to these Terms, we may be liable to Business Account Owner for the losses or damages. However, there are some exceptions. We will not be liable if: (a) through no fault of ours, Authorized User does not have enough available funds in the Card Account to perform the transaction; (b) circumstances beyond our reasonable control (such as fire, flood, water damage, power failure, strike, labor dispute, computer breakdown, telephone line disruption, or natural disaster) prevent or delay the transfer despite reasonable precautions taken by us; (c) the system, or point-of-sale terminal was not working properly and a Business Administrator or Authorized User knew about the problem when Authorized User initiated the transaction; (d) the funds in the Card Account are subject to legal process or are otherwise not available for transactions; (e) the merchant refuses to accept a Card Account; (f) if access to a Card has been blocked after a Business Administrator or Authorized User reported a Card lost or stolen; (g) if we have reason to believe the transaction is unauthorized; or (h) the transaction cannot be completed because a Card is damaged
5.30. Errors or Questions About Your Business Account Transactions. Email us at email@example.com as soon as you think an error has occurred involving a Card or Card Account. We must hear from Business Administrator or Authorized User no later than sixty (60) days after the date the error occurred. When Business Administrator or Authorized User sends notification of an error involving the Card Account, they will need to tell us: (a) the Business Administrator or Authorized User’s name and Card Account information; (b) why they believe there is an error and the dollar amount involved; and (c) approximately when the error took place. We will review the information submitted in a commercially reasonable manner, but given that the Finvari Card Program implements a commercial product, Business Account Owner is not entitled to and we are not obligated to follow the requirements or obligations of the Electronic Funds Transfer Act and Regulation E promulgated thereunder, which only apply to consumer transfers. If you need more information about our error resolution process, contact Customer Service at firstname.lastname@example.org.
5.31. Assignment. To the extent permitted by applicable law, we may assign these Terms without obtaining Business Account Owner’s consent. The Business Account Owner may not assign or transfer a Card, a Card Account, or these Terms without our prior written consent, which may be withheld in our absolute discretion.
5.32. Severability and Waiver. If any provision of this Agreement is held to be invalid or unenforceable, such provision will be deemed to be modified to the minimum extent necessary to make it valid and enforceable and the rest of this Agreement will not be affected. We do not waive our rights by delaying or failing to exercise them at any time.
5.33. Amendment. We may add to, delete, or amend this Agreement at any time in our sole discretion without providing notice to Business Account Owner subject to applicable law. We reserve the right, subject to applicable law, to deliver to Business Account Owner any notice of changes to existing terms or the addition of new terms by posting an updated version of this Agreement on the Website or delivering notice of changes to Business Account Owner electronically. By continuing to participate in the Program, Business Account consents to be bound by the updated Terms.
5.34. Entire Terms. These Terms constitute the entire and sole agreement between Business Account Owner, and us with respect to the Program and supersedes all prior understandings, arrangements, or agreements, whether written or oral, regarding the Program.
5.35. Cancellation and Suspension. To the extent permitted by applicable law, we may cancel or suspend a Business Account, Card, Card Account, or this Agreement immediately, for any reason, and, except when required by applicable law, without notice to Business Account Owner. Business Account Owner may cancel a Card, Card Account, or this Agreement at any time by notifying Customer Service at the number or address provided below. Cancellation or suspension of this Agreement will not affect any of our rights or Business Account Owner’s obligations arising under this Agreement prior to such cancellation or suspension. In the event that the Business Account is cancelled, closed, or terminated for any reason, Business Account Owner may request the unused balance to be returned to Business Account Owner via a check to the mailing address we have in our records.
5.36. Governing Law. This Agreement will be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of Ohio, consistent with the Federal Arbitration Act, without giving effect to any principles that provide for the application of the law of another jurisdiction.
5.37. Indemnification. At our request, Business Account Owner agrees to defend, indemnify, and hold harmless us and our parents, subsidiaries, and other affiliated companies, and our and their employees, contractors, officers, and directors against any and all claims, suits, damages, costs, lawsuits, fines, penalties, liabilities, and expenses (including, without limitation, reasonable attorneys’ fees) that arise from Business Account Owner’s, Business Administrator’s, or any Authorized Users’ violation of these Terms, applicable law, or any third-party rights or Business Account Owner’s, Business Administrator’s, or any Authorized Users’ fraud or willful misconduct. We reserve the right to assume the exclusive defense and control of any matter subject to indemnification by Business Account Owner, in which event Business Account Owner will cooperate in asserting any available defenses.
5.38. NO WARRANTY OF AVAILABILITY OR UNINTERRUPTED USE. From time to time, services related to the Program may be inoperative. When this happens, Business Account Owner, Business Administrators and/or Authorized Users may be unable to access the Website and Finvari mobile app and Authorized Users may be unable to use the Card, Card Account or obtain information about the Card or Card Account. Please notify us if a Business Administrator or Authorized User has any problems using the Card, Finvari mobile app or the Website. Business Account Owner, Business Administrators and Authorized Users agree that we will not be responsible for temporary interruptions in service due to maintenance, website changes, or failures, nor shall we be liable for extended interruptions due to failures beyond our control, including but not limited to the failure of interconnecting and operating systems, computer viruses, forces of nature, labor disputes and armed conflicts.
5.39. LIMITATION OF LIABILITY. We shall have no liability to you if we are unable to complete a transaction for any reason beyond our control. Except as otherwise expressly provided in this Agreement or as otherwise required by applicable law, we, our affiliates, and the parties with whom we contract in order to offer the Cards, the Card Accounts, and related services are neither responsible nor liable for any indirect, incidental, consequential, special, exemplary, or punitive damages arising out of or relating in any way to the Cards, the Card Accounts, any products or services purchased using Card Accounts, or this Agreement (as well as any related or prior agreement that Business Account Owner may have had with us).
5.40. NOTIFICATION OF CHANGES. If Business Account Owner’s U.S. mail or postal address, or email address or telephone number changes, Business Account Owner must notify us immediately. In addition, Business Account Owner agrees to notify us immediately if the Business Administrator’s or any Authorized User’s status with Business Account Owner has changed. Failure to do so may result in information regarding the Card, Business Account or Card Account being delivered to the wrong person or your transactions being declined. In such event, we shall not be responsible for any resulting misuse of funds available in the Business Account or Card Account. Business Account Owner must notify us immediately in the event of the insolvency, receivership, conservatorship, bankruptcy, reorganization of Business Account Owner or change in Principal Owners. Business Account Owner’s Card(s), Business Account and Card Account may be terminated by us in the event a change of control, reorganization, restructuring, conversion, consolidation, division or merger of Business Account Owner.
5.41. DISPUTE RESOLUTION BY BINDING ARBITRATION. For any and all controversies, disputes, demands, claims, or causes of action between Business Account Owner (which includes for purposes of this provision any Business Administrator or Authorized User) and us (including the interpretation and scope of this Section and the arbitrability of the controversy, dispute, demand, claim, or cause of action) relating to the Program, Cards, Business Account, Card Accounts, or these Terms (as well as any related or prior agreement that Business Account Owner may have had with us), Business Account Owner and we agree to resolve any such controversy, dispute, demand, claim, or cause of action exclusively through binding and confidential arbitration and the terms of this Section. The arbitration will take place in the federal judicial district located in the borough of Manhattan, New York, New York, or in the alternative, may be conducted telephonically at your request. As used in this Section, “we” and “us” mean Bank and its subsidiaries, affiliates, predecessors, successors, and assigns and all of its and their respective employees, officers, directors, agents, and representatives. In addition, “we” and “us” include Finvari, and any third party providing any product, service, or benefit in connection with the Cards, Card Accounts or these Terms (as well as any related or prior agreement that Business Account Owner may have had with us) if such third party is named as a co-party with us in any controversy, dispute, demand, claim, or cause of action subject to this Section.
Arbitration will be subject to the Federal Arbitration Act and not any state arbitration law. The arbitration will be conducted before one commercial arbitrator from the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) with substantial experience in resolving commercial contract disputes. As modified by these Terms, and unless otherwise agreed upon by the parties in writing, the arbitration will be governed by the AAA’s Commercial Arbitration Rules and, if the arbitrator deems them applicable, the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes (collectively, the “Rules and Procedures”). Notwithstanding this agreement to arbitrate, either party may seek emergency equitable relief in federal court if it has jurisdiction or, if it does not, in a state court located in the federal judicial district of Business Account Owner’s principal place of business residence in order to maintain the status quo pending arbitration, and each party hereby agrees to submit to the exclusive personal jurisdiction of the courts located within the federal judicial district of Business Account Owner’s principal place of business for such purpose. A request for interim measures will not be deemed a waiver of the obligation to arbitrate.
Business Account Owner agrees to the following in connection with any arbitration: (a) no class or similar group arbitration will be permitted; (b) the arbitration will be confidential, and neither Business Account Owner nor we may disclose the existence, content, or results of any arbitration, except as may be required by law or for purposes of enforcement of the arbitration award; (c) subject to Section titled “Limitation of Liability”, the arbitrator may award any individual relief or individual remedies that are expressly permitted by applicable law; and (d) each party will pay its own attorneys’ fees and expenses, unless there is a statutory provision that requires the prevailing party to be paid its fees and litigation expenses and the arbitrator awards such attorneys’ fees and expenses to the prevailing party, and, in such instance, the fees and costs awarded will be determined by the applicable law.
Business Account Owner understands and agrees that, by agreeing to these Terms:
• YOU ARE GIVING UP YOUR RIGHT TO HAVE A TRIAL BY JURY;
• YOU ARE GIVING UP YOUR RIGHT TO HAVE A COURT RESOLVE ANY DISPUTE BETWEEN YOU AND US
This Section will survive termination of the Card Account or these Terms as well as any voluntary payment of any debt in full by Business Account Owner or bankruptcy by Business Account Owner, or any bankruptcy by us. With the exception of subparts (a) and (b) of this Section (prohibiting arbitration on a class or collective basis), if any part of this arbitration provision is deemed to be invalid, unenforceable, or illegal, or otherwise conflicts with the Rules and Procedures, then the balance of this arbitration provision will remain in effect and will be construed in accordance with its terms as if the invalid, unenforceable, illegal or conflicting part was not contained herein.
