You represent that (i) you have read, understand, have the legal capacity to, and hereby agree to be legally bound by these Terms; (ii) you will comply with all laws, rules, and regulations, any mobile service provider requirements, and the requirements of your authorized payment provider applicable to your use of the Services; (ii) there is no law or restriction barring you from using the Services; (iii) you own and/or are authorized to use the mobile phone and mobile number in conjunction with the Services; and (iv) you are solely responsible for use of your mobile phone with the Services and for use of and access to your PaymentOne account.
When you use the Services, you are authorizing the participating merchant to process your payment and complete the transaction. After completing a transaction with the Services, the charge is posted to your mobile phone bill for payment. When you pay your mobile phone bill, you must then pay the PaymentOne charges that are listed with your standard voice and data mobile phone charges. Payment of the PaymentOne charges to your mobile service provider extinguishes your liability to PaymentOne and the merchant for your purchases.
By agreeing to these Terms, you consent to receive SMS text messages from us. You acknowledge and agree that: (i) the Services utilize SMS transmissions which may result in additional wireless charges from your mobile service provider and that you are solely responsible for such charges; (ii) transactions initiated by you through the Services are noncancelable and may not be refunded through the Services; (iii) you are solely liable for use of and access to your PaymentOne account and for use and access to the Services from your mobile phone, and PaymentOne shall have no liability to you or any third party for any unauthorized use or access of your account or use or access of the Services through your mobile phone; (iv) the charges for purchases made by you using the Services will be reflected in your mobile phone bill and/or payment provider bill (e.g., credit card bill), as applicable, and you are solely responsible for such charges and for any taxes (including but not limited to use taxes), duties, currency exchange fees, data charges, and related charges to such transactions; (v) PaymentOne, a mobile service provider, its payment transaction processor, or a participating merchant shall not have any liability to you if it determines not to accept a transaction you initiate through the Services; and (vi) PaymentOne does not have control of or liability for the products or services or the delivery of the products or services to you and shall not have any liability to you for any actions taken or charges applied by a mobile service provider or a participating merchant with respect to, or for failure of delivery of, the products or services. You acknowledge and agree that certain features of the Services may include advertisements and that such advertisements are a necessary part of the Services. The Services, including all such materials and all intellectual property rights therein, remain the property of PaymentOne or our licensors or suppliers. PaymentOne, at our discretion, may set limits on the amount of monthly transactions a user can spend through the Services and there may also be limits imposed by your mobile service provider.
You can inspect your transaction history at any time by registering on this Site and logging in to your account. It is very important that you immediately notify PaymentOne if you have reason to believe any of the following activities have occurred: (i) there has been an unauthorized transaction sent from your mobile phone number, (ii) there has been unauthorized access to your account, or (iii) your Site password or mobile phone personal PIN has been compromised. If your mobile phone has been lost, stolen, or deactivated, you must contact and notify your mobile service provider immediately.
If we discover a processing error resulting in your receiving less money than you were entitled to, your mobile service provider will credit you for the difference. If the error results in your receiving more money than you were entitled to, your mobile service provider may debit the extra funds from you.
PaymentOne reserves the right to terminate without notice your password, account, or use of the Services and delete any data within PaymentOne, in our sole discretion, without cause and/or without notice. You may terminate your user account upon notice to PaymentOne at any time. Upon termination by PaymentOne or at your direction, you may request a file of your data, which PaymentOne will make available for a fee. You must make such request at the notification of termination to receive such file within thirty (30) days of termination. Otherwise, any data you have stored on PaymentOne’s systems may not be retrieved and PaymentOne shall have no obligation to maintain any data stored in your account or to forward any data to you or any third party.
We provide the Services for your personal use. As a consumer user, you are not required to register for a PaymentOne account in order to use the Services. However, PaymentOne provides users with the ability to view transaction history for the Services by registering on this Site. To use this Site and the Services, the user must be in full compliance with the Terms, including (i) the user must provide complete, true, current, and accurate information as prompted during the registration or payment process; (ii) if the user registers a PaymentOne account, the user must keep current, accurate, and complete all information contained within the account for so long as the account remains active; (iii) the user expressly consents and authorizes PaymentOne to exercise all reasonable and lawful measures to verify the information provided by the user upon completion of the registration or payment process and on an ongoing basis for so long as the account remains active; (iv) the user shall not use any merchant information for any purpose other than for transacting for the goods or services, including communicating with merchants for such purposes; (v) the user shall not defraud merchants, other users, or PaymentOne, or act in bad faith, and if the user is determined to be acting outside reasonable Site or Services standards, PaymentOne may, at its sole discretion, prohibit the user from using the Services and/or “black list” the user from use of this Site and/or the Services; and (vi) the user shall not create false personas, multiple identities, or use mobile phones which are not explicitly owned by the user.
If you have a dispute with your mobile service provider, the provider of your authorized payment method (e.g., credit card issuer), or one or more participating merchants, you hereby release PaymentOne, its affiliates, and their respective officers, directors, employees, agents, successors, and assigns from any and all claims, demands, liabilities, losses, and damages of every kind and nature arising out of or in any way connected with such disputes. In addition, you expressly release, waive and relinquish any and all rights and benefits afforded by California Civil Code §1542, which provides as follows: “A general release does not extend to claims which the creditor does not know or suspect to exist in his or her favor at the time of executing the release, which if not known by him or her must have materially affected his or her settlement with the debtor.”
By registering with PaymentOne, you understand that we may send you communications or data regarding the Services, including but not limited to (i) notices about your use of the Services, including any notices concerning violations of use, (ii) updates, and (iii) promotional information and materials regarding PaymentOne’s products and services, via e-mail.

PaymentOne shall have the right, but not the obligation, to reject, refuse to post, or otherwise monitor all content provided by the Services that is available to users, and may remove or require merchants to remove all content that PaymentOne, in our sole discretion, deems to be (i) inconsistent with PaymentOne’s or a mobile service provider’s strategic mission and vision (including but not limited to content that contains references to tobacco and alcohol products, controlled substances, gambling and illegal lotteries, pornography, violence, or prejudicial content) and/or these Terms; or (ii) possibly in violation of applicable law. In addition, PaymentOne has the right to remove any content if PaymentOne has reason to believe that displaying such content may infringe the rights of a third party or subject PaymentOne to expense or liability.

PaymentOne reserves the right, in our sole discretion, to determine whether and what action to take in response to each such notification, and any action or inaction in a particular instance shall not dictate or limit PaymentOne’s response to a future complaint.
