1. Overview of the Services
Our Services provide a platform that can be used by a business or organization (“Company”) to authorize, manage, and track purchases by its employees and contractors (“Users”) that are required for work performed for the Company. The Services enable a Company to designate certain of its Users as administrators (“Administrators”) who will have the authority to approve purchase requests made by other its other Users (“Purchasers”). For clarity, the Services do not include the products and services provided by the Bank (or its program manager) in connection with any Virtual Account. Teampay is not responsible for the issuance and management of the Virtual Account, including any funds associated with the Virtual Account. References to “you” under these Terms refers collectively to the Company registered to use the Services and to each of the Company’s Users. Subject to these Terms and in consideration of the fees paid by Company pursuant to Section 5 below (Fees), Teampay agrees to use commercially reasonable efforts to provide the Services to Company.

Each Company represents and warrants that: (i) it is duly organized, validly existing and in good standing under the laws of the state in the United States of its formation; (ii) it is duly qualified and in good standing to do business in all jurisdictions where it conducts its business; (iii) it has all necessary organizational power and authority to enter into these Terms and the Sponsor Bank Agreement, and to perform all of the obligations to be performed by it under these Terms and the Sponsor Bank Agreement; and (iv) the individual accepting and agreeing to these Terms and the Sponsor Bank Agreement on its behalf has the requisite corporate authority to accept and agree to the Terms and the Sponsor Bank Agreement on the its behalf.
- Issuance Services. In order to use card issuance services that are available through the Services, Company separately must enter into an agreement (“Sponsor Bank Agreement”) with a sponsor bank (“Bank”) that issues and manages the virtual financial account and associated account numbers (collectively, the “Virtual Account”) that may be used by a Purchaser for transactions authorized by an Administrator via the Services. Company must agree to, and comply with, these Terms and the applicable Sponsor Bank Agreement from the applicable Bank, which can be found here.
- Users. All Users must be at least 18 years of age. Users will comply with these Terms, and if applicable, and the terms of the Sponsor Bank Agreement. Any User accessing or using our Services on behalf of another person or entity represents and warrants that he or she is authorized to accept these Terms on that person or entity’s behalf, and that the person or entity agrees to be responsible to us if the User violates these Terms.
3. Accounts and Account Security; Confidentiality and Data Collection
Accounts and Account Security. You must (a) provide any information requested via the Services, including in connection with any account you create via the Services, (b) ensure that such information is accurate when provided, and (c) maintain the accuracy of such information at all times. You must maintain the security of your account and promptly notify us if you discover or suspect that someone has accessed your account or your account credentials without your permission.

Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, Company is solely responsible for all use of the Services by Users or third parties that access the Services via its account, including any use of transaction pre-approval settings or other features or functionality relating to transaction authorization or limits, and Company releases Teampay from, and waives any, claims related to the foregoing. Company shall, and shall ensure its Administrators, fully cooperate with any audits of the Bank (or its program manager) and their authorized representatives.

14. Dispute Resolution; Binding Arbitration
Please read the following section carefully because it requires you to arbitrate certain disputes and claims with Teampay and limits the manner in which you can seek relief from us.
- Except for small claims disputes in which you or Teampay seek to bring an individual action in small claims court located in the county of your billing address or disputes in which you or Teampay seeks injunctive or other equitable relief for the alleged unlawful use of intellectual property, you and Teampay waive your rights to a jury trial and to have any dispute arising out of or related to these Terms or our Services resolved in court. Instead, all disputes arising out of or relating to these Terms or our Services will be resolved through confidential binding arbitration held in the borough of Manhattan, New York, New York in accordance with the Streamlined Arbitration Rules and Procedures (“Rules“) of the Judicial Arbitration and Mediation Services (“JAMS“), which are available on the JAMS website and hereby incorporated by reference. You either acknowledge and agree that you have read and understand the rules of JAMS or waive your opportunity to read the rules of JAMS and any claim that the rules of JAMS are unfair or should not apply for any reason.
- You and Teampay agree that any dispute arising out of or related to these Terms or our Services is personal to you and Teampay and that any dispute will be resolved solely through individual arbitration and will not be brought as a class arbitration, class action or any other type of representative proceeding.
- You and Teampay agree that these Terms affect interstate commerce and that the enforceability of this Section 14 will be substantively and procedurally governed by the Federal Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. § 1, et seq. (the “FAA“), to the maximum extent permitted by applicable law. As limited by the FAA, these Terms and the JAMS Rules, the arbitrator will have exclusive authority to make all procedural and substantive decisions regarding any dispute and to grant any remedy that would otherwise be available in court; provided, however, that the arbitrator does not have the authority to conduct a class arbitration or a representative action, which is prohibited by these Terms. The arbitrator may only conduct an individual arbitration and may not consolidate more than one individual’s claims, preside over any type of class or representative proceeding or preside over any proceeding involving more than one individual. You and Teampay agree that for any arbitration you initiate, you will pay the filing fee and Teampay will pay the remaining JAMS fees and costs. For any arbitration initiated by Teampay, Teampay will pay all JAMS fees and costs. You and Teampay agree that the state or federal courts of the State of New York and the United States sitting in Manhattan, New York, New York have exclusive jurisdiction over any appeals and the enforcement of an arbitration award.
- ANY CLAIM ARISING OUT OF OR RELATED TO THESE TERMS OR OUR SERVICES MUST BE FILED WITHIN ONE YEAR AFTER SUCH CLAIM AROSE; OTHERWISE, THE CLAIM IS PERMANENTLY BARRED, WHICH MEANS THAT YOU AND TEAMPAY WILL NOT HAVE THE RIGHT TO ASSERT THE CLAIM.
- You have the right to opt out of binding arbitration within thirty (30) days of the date you first agreed to these Terms by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. In order to be effective, the opt out notice must include your full name and clearly indicate your intent to opt out of binding arbitration. By opting out of binding arbitration, you are agreeing to resolve Disputes in accordance with Section 15.
15. Governing Law and Venue
These Terms and your access to and use of our Services will be governed by and construed and enforced in accordance with the laws of New York, without regard to conflict of law rules or principles (whether of New York or any other jurisdiction) that would cause the application of the laws of any other jurisdiction. Any dispute between the parties that is not subject to arbitration or cannot be heard in small claims court will be resolved in the state or federal courts of New York and the United States, respectively, sitting in Manhattan and New York.
16. Changes to these Terms
We may make changes to these Terms from time to time by providing notice to you. We will provide such notice by posting the amended Terms to our Services and updating the “Last Updated” date above. We may also provide supplemental notice of amended Terms, such as via an email notification to the email address associated with your account or by providing notice through our Services. Unless we say otherwise in our notice, the amended Terms will be effective immediately and your continued access to and use of our Services after we provide notice will confirm your acceptance of the changes. If you do not agree to the amended Terms, you must stop accessing and using our Services.
17. Termination or Suspension
We reserve the right, without notice and in our sole discretion, to terminate or suspend your right to access or use our Services.
If any provision or part of a provision of these Terms is unlawful, void or unenforceable, that provision or part of the provision is deemed severable from these Terms and does not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions.
We will not be responsible for any delay or failure to perform to the extent caused by any event or circumstance beyond our reasonable control. These Terms constitute the entire agreement between you and Teampay relating to your access to and use of our Services. The failure of Teampay to exercise or enforce any right or provision of these Terms will not operate as a waiver of such right or provision. The section titles in these Terms are for convenience only and have no legal or contractual effect. Except as otherwise provided herein, these Terms are intended solely for the benefit of the parties and are not intended to confer third party beneficiary rights upon any other person or entity.
