13. CLASS ACTION WAIVER AND ARBITRATION.

THIS SECTION CONTAINS A BINDING ARBITRATION CLAUSE AND CLASS ACTION WAIVER. IT AFFECTS YOUR RIGHTS ABOUT HOW TO RESOLVE ANY DISPUTE WITH US.

13.1. Except if you opt-out as expressly permitted below, or except to the extent contrary to applicable law (“Excluded Disputes”), you hereby agree that all disputes between you and us (whether or not such dispute involves a third party) with regard to your relationship with us, including without limitation disputes related to these Terms, your use of the Service, and/or rights of privacy and/or publicity, may, in our discretion, be resolved by binding, individual arbitration under the American Arbitration Association’s rules for arbitration of consumer-related disputes and you hereby expressly waive trial by jury.

This dispute resolution provision will be governed by the US Federal Arbitration Act, to the extent permissible. In the event the American Arbitration Association is unwilling or unable to set a hearing date within one hundred and sixty (160) days of filing the case, then either we or you can elect to have the arbitration administered instead by the Judicial Arbitration and Mediation Services.

You understand and acknowledge that EarnUp is not a bank and does not perform the functions of a bank, and that the Services are not banking services. For avoidance of doubt, you are contracting with the Company, not a Partner Bank. Because the Banks have their own contractual rules and are subject to various federal and state banking laws, regulations and oversight, you must agree to any of the Bank’s terms and conditions related to the Custodial Account in order to take advantage of the Company Services. Additionally, the Bank may amend, supplement, modify or otherwise its terms and conditions at its sole discretion.

  2. In connection with any Services offered with a Partner Bank, you direct us to transfer information and instructions provided by you or your authorized representatives to the Partner Bank in order for the Partner Bank to initiate and complete payment and banking services on your behalf.

In the event that the minimum payment amounts that you owe on your payment obligations change, you instruct Partner Bank, through EarnUp, to change the withdrawal amounts in order to meet the new minimum payment amounts. YOU UNDERSTAND THAT WE SOLELY PROVIDE YOUR INFORMATION AND INSTRUCTIONS TO THE PARTNER BANK ON A PASS-THROUGH BASIS. ONLY THE PARTNER BANK IS AUTHORIZED TO INITIATE OR EXECUTE ACH TRANSACTIONS, PAYMENTS, AND TRANSFERS ON YOUR BEHALF AND AT NO TIME WILL WE CONTROL OR HOLD YOUR FUNDS.

Examples of scenarios outside of our control and Partner Bank’s control including but not limited to the following: if there are insufficient funds in your account, if there is a stop payment order on a transaction, if a force majeure ever occurs, if there are any encumbrances on your bank account, if you have breached these Terms or your relationship with EarnUp or Partner Bank has been terminated, if your bank account has closed for any reason, if changes have been made to your loan, bill or bank account and you have not provided EarnUp and Partner Bank with at least 30 days prior notice, or if any of your payess refuse payment.

  6. DEPOSIT NETWORK SERVICE ACKNOWLEDGEMENT. By utilizing Services offered in partnership with a Partner Bank, your beneficial funds may be held at Partner Bank in an omnibus custodial account (“Omnibus Account”). In its ordinary course of business, Partner Bank may utilize a “Deposit Network Service” to deposit funds from the Omnibus Account into other FDIC insured banks (“Network Banks”). In the event funds from the Omnibus Account are deposited into Network Banks via the Deposit Network Service, Partner Bank will deliver funds to a custody bank (“Custodian Bank”) participating in the Deposit Network Service. In the event any of your beneficial funds from the Omnibus Account arrive at a Network Bank through a Deposit Network Service, they may be eligible for FDIC insurance, however, in the event you or Partner Bank have funds, either directly or indirectly, at any of the Network Banks, such deposit insurance coverage may be adversely affected, and the principal and any accrued interest may not benefit from FDIC insurance, even if the total amount deposited in that Network Bank through the Deposit Network Service is less than the Standard Maximum Deposit Insurance Amount, as then provided by the FDIC. In addition, in the event of a failure of a Network Bank, you may be requested to provide certain personal information for the purposes of processing a claim to seek the associated FDIC insurance. In the event you do not provide such information on a timely basis, it is possible the beneficial funds will not benefit from FDIC insurance.

API TERMS

These API Terms (“API Terms”) form a part of, and are incorporated into, the EarnUp General Terms of Service, and apply to you, if you access, use, or connect with any EarnUp API. EarnUp API(s) or API(s) means API, any and all software/code in and related to such API, documentation, developer materials, and/or any other software or technology, including but not limited to __. Any capitalized terms that are used but not defined in these API Terms have the meaning set forth in the EarnUp General Terms of Service.

  1. You may not use the APIs and may not accept the Terms if (a) you are not of legal age to form a binding contract, or (b) you are a person barred from using or receiving the APIs under the applicable laws of the United States or other countries including the country in which you are resident or from which you use the APIs. If you are using the APIs on behalf of an entity, you represent and warrant that you have authority to bind that entity to the Terms and by accepting the Terms, you are doing so on behalf of that entity (and all references to “you” in the Terms refer to that entity).

  2. In order to access certain APIs you may be required to provide certain information (such as identification or contact details) as part of the registration process for the APIs, or as part of your continued use of the APIs. Any registration information you give to EarnUp will always be accurate and up to date and you’ll inform us promptly of any updates

  3. If we grant you access to APIs, such API Access will be considered part of the Services. “API Access” is the ability via API to access certain Services, account information and/or features, and to execute commands for your Account(s). You may not use your API Access, including any data obtained therefrom, for purposes other than managing your EarnUp Account(s) to which the API Access relates. We grant you a non-exclusive, revocable, non-transferable, non-sublicensable, limited, internal-use license to use the API solely for API Access. Your use of API Access will not place an unreasonable or disproportionately large load on our systems (as determined by us) or exceed access frequency limits set by us from time to time. EarnUp sets and enforces limits on your use of the APIs (e.g. limiting the number of API requests that you may make or the number of users you may serve), in our sole discretion. You agree to, and will not attempt to circumvent, such limitations documented with each API. If you would like to use any API beyond these limits, you must obtain EarnUp’s express consent (and EarnUp may decline such request or condition acceptance on your agreement to additional terms and/or charges for that use). To seek such approval, contact the relevant EarnUp API team for information (e.g. by using the EarnUp developers console). In the event your use of any Service terminates your API Access to such Service will terminate effective immediately.

    Some of the software required by or included in our APIs may be offered under an open source license. Open source software licenses constitute separate written agreements. For certain APIs, open source software is listed in the documentation. To the limited extent the open source software license expressly supersedes the Terms, the open source license instead sets forth your agreement with EarnUp for the applicable open source software.

  4. You will only access (or attempt to access) an API by the means described in the documentation for that API. If EarnUp assigns you developer credentials (e.g. client IDs), you must use them with the applicable APIs. The APIs are designed to help you enhance your websites and/or applications (“API Client(s)”). You will not misrepresent or mask either your identity or your API Client’s identity when using the APIs or developer accounts. Developer credentials (such as passwords, keys, and client IDs) are intended to be used by you and identify your API Client. You will keep your credentials confidential and make reasonable efforts to prevent and discourage other API Clients from using your credentials. Developer credentials may not be embedded in open source projects.

  5. Sandbox Environment. EarnUp may provide tools and materials such as EarnUp accounts and sample data as part of a sandbox environment to allow developers to use such tools and materials solely for internal testing. All tools and materials are provided “AS IS” and may be removed or modified at any time. You agree that all use of such tools and materials will be in accordance with EarnUp’s usage policies which may change from time to time. Intuit may post on the developer’s site and/or send an email to you with notices of any changes. You may use anonymous, non-live data only. EarnUp may charge you the then-current fee for the tools and materials if EarnUp reasonably believes that you have used such materials in breach of these terms.

  6. YOU AGREE THAT EARNUP MAY MONITOR USE OF THE APIS TO ENSURE QUALITY, IMPROVE EARNUP PRODUCTS AND SERVICES, AND VERIFY YOUR COMPLIANCE WITH THE TERMS. This monitoring may include EarnUp accessing and using your API Client, for example to identify security issues that could affect EarnUp or its users. You will not interfere with this monitoring. EarnUp may use any technical means to overcome such interference. EarnUp may suspend access to the APIs by you or your API Client without notice if we reasonably believe that you are in violation of the Terms.

  7. You will use commercially reasonable efforts to protect user information collected by your API Client, including personal data, from unauthorized access or use and will promptly report to your users any unauthorized access or use of such information to the extent required by applicable law. EarnUp does not acquire ownership in your API Clients, and by using our APIs, you do not acquire ownership of any rights in our APIs or the content that is accessed through our APIs.

  8. When using the APIs, you may not (or allow those acting on your behalf to): (a) Sublicense an API for use by a third party. Consequently, you will not create an API Client that functions substantially the same as the APIs and offer it for use by third parties; (b) Perform an action with the intent of introducing to EarnUp products and services any viruses, worms, defects, Trojan horses, malware, or any items of a destructive nature; (c) Defame, abuse, harass, stalk, or threaten others; (d) Interfere with or disrupt the APIs or the servers or networks providing the APIs; (e) Reverse engineer or attempt to extract the source code from any API or any related software, except to the extent that this restriction is expressly prohibited by applicable law; and/or (f) Remove, obscure, or alter any EarnUp terms of service or any links to or notices of those terms.

  9. WARRANTIES. EXCEPT AS EXPRESSLY SET OUT IN THE TERMS, NEITHER EARNUP NOR ITS SUPPLIERS OR DISTRIBUTORS MAKE ANY SPECIFIC PROMISES ABOUT THE APIS. FOR EXAMPLE, WE DON’T MAKE ANY COMMITMENTS ABOUT THE CONTENT ACCESSED THROUGH THE APIS, THE SPECIFIC FUNCTIONS OF THE APIS, OR THEIR RELIABILITY, AVAILABILITY, OR ABILITY TO MEET YOUR NEEDS. WE PROVIDE THE APIS “AS IS”. SOME JURISDICTIONS PROVIDE FOR CERTAIN WARRANTIES, LIKE THE IMPLIED WARRANTY OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, AND NON-INFRINGEMENT. EXCEPT AS EXPRESSLY PROVIDED FOR IN THE TERMS, TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, WE EXCLUDE ALL WARRANTIES, GUARANTEES, CONDITIONS, REPRESENTATIONS, AND UNDERTAKINGS.

  10. TERMINATION.

    a. You may stop using our APIs at any time with or without notice. Further, if you want to terminate the Terms, you must provide EarnUp with prior written notice and upon termination, cease your use of the applicable APIs. EarnUp reserves the right to terminate the Terms with you or discontinue the APIs or any portion or feature or your access thereto for any reason and at any time without liability or other obligation to you.

    b. Your Obligations Post-Termination. Upon any termination of the Terms or discontinuation of your access to an API, you will immediately stop using the API and delete any cached or stored content that was permitted by the cache header. EarnUp may independently communicate with any account owner whose account(s) are associated with your API Client and developer credentials to provide notice of the termination of your right to use an API.

    c. Surviving Provisions. When the Terms come to an end, those terms that by their nature are intended to continue indefinitely will continue to apply.
