General Terms

Modified 6/20/2011

Welcome to PosiPair Services E-Commerce Service, a suite of optional merchant services including the following services: Selling on PosiPair, or using PosiPair profiling and all other functionality.

BY REGISTERING FOR OR USING THE SERVICE(S), YOU (ON BEHALF OF YOURSELF OR THE BUSINESS YOU REPRESENT) AGREE TO BE BOUND BY THE TERMS OF THIS AGREEMENT, INCLUDING THE SERVICE TERMS AND PROGRAM POLICIES THAT APPLY IN THE COUNTRY FOR WHICH YOU REGISTER (“YOUR ELECTED COUNTRY”) FOR EACH SERVICE FOR WHICH YOU REGISTER.

As used in this Agreement, "we," "us," and "PosiPair" means the PosiPair Contracting Party or any of its affiliates, and "you" means the applicant (if registering as an individual), or the business employing the applicant (if registering as a business). Capitalized terms have the meanings listed in the Definitions below. If there is any conflict between these General Terms and the applicable Service Terms, the Service Terms will govern.

1.  Enrollment.

To begin the enrollment process, you must complete the registration process for one or more of the Services. Use of the Services is limited to parties that can lawfully enter into and form contracts under applicable law (for example, Your Elected State may not allow minors to use the Services). As part of the application, you must provide us with your (or your business') legal name, address, phone number and e-mail address. We may at any time cease providing the Services or any of them at our sole discretion and without notice.

2.  Service Fee Payments.

Fee details are described fully in the applicable Service Terms. You are responsible for all of your expenses in connection with this Agreement, unless this Agreement or the applicable Service Terms provide otherwise. To use a Service, you must provide us with valid credit card information from a credit card acceptable by PosiPair ("Your Credit Card") as well as valid bank account information for a bank account in your name that is located within Your Elected State or any other location shown as supported by our standard functionality and enabled for your account (which functionality may be modified or discontinued by us at any time without notice) ("Your Bank Account"). You will use only a name you are authorized to use in connection with the Service and will update all of the preceding information as necessary to ensure that it at all times remains accurate and complete. You authorize us (and will provide us documentation evidencing your authorization upon our request) to verify your information (including any updated information), to obtain credit reports about you from time to time, to obtain credit authorizations from your credit card issuer, and to charge Your Credit Card or debit Your Bank Account for any sums payable by you to us (in reimbursement or otherwise). At PosiPair's option, all payments to you will be remitted to Your Bank Account, Your Credit Card or through an Automated Clearing House ("ACH") or similar system. For any amounts you owe us, we may (a) charge Your Credit Card, (b) offset any amounts that are payable by you to us (in reimbursement or otherwise) against any payments we may make to you, (c) invoice you for amounts due to us under this Agreement, in which case you will pay the invoiced amounts upon receipt, (d) reverse any credits to Your Bank Account, or (e) seek such payment or reimbursement from you by any other lawful means. Except as provided otherwise, all amounts contemplated in this Agreement will be expressed and displayed in the Local Currency, and all payments contemplated by this Agreement will be made in the Local Currency. If we discover erroneous or duplicate transactions, then we reserve the right to seek reimbursement from you by deducting from future payments owed to you, charging Your Credit Card, or seeking such reimbursement from you by any other lawful means.

If we conclude that your actions and/or performance in connection with the Agreement may result in customer disputes, chargebacks or other claims, then we may, in our sole discretion, delay initiating any remittances and withhold any payments to be made or that are otherwise due to you under this Agreement for the shorter of: (a) a period of ninety (90) days following the initial date of suspension; or (b) completion of any investigation(s) regarding your actions and/or performance in connection with the Agreement.

As a security measure, we may, but are not required to, impose transaction limits on some or all customers and sellers relating to the value of any transaction or disbursement, the cumulative value of all transactions or disbursements during a period of time, or the number of transactions per day or other period of time. We will not be liable to you: (i) if we do not proceed with a transaction or disbursement that would exceed any limit established by us for a security reason, or (ii) if we permit a customer to withdraw from a transaction because the PosiPair Site or the Services are unavailable following the commencement of a transaction.

3.  Term and Termination.

The term of this Agreement will start on the date of your completed registration for the Service(s) and continue until terminated by us or you as provided below (the "Term"). We may terminate or suspend this Agreement or any Service immediately by notice to you for any reason at any time. You may terminate this Agreement or any Service or the Promotion Site for any reason at any time by the means then specified by PosiPair. Termination or suspension of a Service will not terminate or suspend any other Service unless explicitly provided. Upon termination, all rights and obligations of the parties under this Agreement will terminate, except that Sections 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 11, 14, 15, 16 and 18 will survive termination. Any terms that expressly survive according to the applicable Service Terms will also survive termination.

If Your Elected Country is the United States, conditioned upon your compliance with the Trademark Usage Guidelines, PosiPair grants you a non-exclusive, non-transferable, non-assignable, revocable right and license during the term of this Agreement to use the PosiPair Marks solely in connection with your use of the Services for which the PosiPair Marks were provided to you.

You may not use any PosiPair Mark except as expressly provided herein, and may not sublicense these rights or otherwise permit any party to use the PosiPair Marks. You acknowledge that PosiPair and its affiliates are the sole owners of the PosiPair Marks, and you agree to do nothing inconsistent with that ownership. All goodwill arising out of your use of the PosiPair Marks will inure to the sole benefit of PosiPair and its affiliates. PosiPair may revoke your license to any or all of the PosiPair Marks at any time in its sole discretion.

Parity with Your Sales Channels.

If you become aware of any non-compliance with (a) above, you will promptly compensate adversely affected customers by making appropriate refunds to them. For PosiPair-Fulfilled Products, we acknowledge that if the shipping and handling charges associated with the sale and delivery of any of Your Products listed for sale on the PosiPair Site are included in (and not separately stated) the purchase price listed for Your Product on the PosiPair Site (collectively a "Shipping Inclusive Purchase Price"), then the parity obligation in (a) above will be satisfied if the Shipping Inclusive Purchase Price and each other term of offer and/or sale for the product on the PosiPair Site are at least as favorable to PosiPair Site users as the purchase price and each other term of offer and/or sale for the product (including any and all separately stated shipping and handling charges) pursuant to which the product is offered and/or sold via any of your sales channels other than the PosiPair Site.

Compensation.

You will pay us: (a) the applicable Referral Fees; (b) any applicable Variable Closing Fee; and (c) the non-refundable Selling on PosiPair Subscription Fee in advance for each month (or for each transaction, if applicable) during the term of this Agreement. "Selling on PosiPair Subscription Fee" means the fee specified as such on the Selling on PosiPair Fee Schedule at the time such fee is payable. With respect to each of Your Transactions: (x) "Sales Proceeds" has the meaning set out in the E-Commerce Service Agreement; (y) "Variable Closing Fee" means the applicable fee, if any, as specified on the Variable Closing Fee Schedule; and (z) "Referral Fee" means the applicable percentage of the Sales Proceeds from Your Transaction through the PosiPair Site specified on the Selling on PosiPair Fee Schedule at the time of Your Transaction, based on the categorization by PosiPair of the type of product that is the subject of Your Transaction.
