Payment Gateway Terms & Conditions

1. General

The Stripe Checkout service (“Stripe Checkout”) is technology that makes it easier for merchants on the Internet (“Merchants”) to collect payment from individuals like you. Stripe Checkout also makes it easy for you to store a credit card or debit card (“Payment Credentials”) with Stripe for use across the websites of Merchants who’ve chosen to enable it.

2. Using Stripe Checkout

When you check out on the website of a Merchant that has Stripe Checkout enabled, we will ask you if you’d like us to remember you. When you allow us to remember you, Stripe will store certain identifying information, such as a password, your email address, or your mobile phone number (“Stripe Credentials”), and your Payment Credentials. The advantage of remembering you is that it will make your checkout quicker and easier if you come back to the same website, or to any of the other websites that use Stripe (a “Checkout Enabled Site”)–this can be especially handy when you’re on a mobile device or don’t have your credit card in front of you.

If you elect to allow us to remember you, Stripe will use cookies to link your web browser to your Stripe Credentials and recognize when you return to a Checkout Enabled Site. If you come to a Checkout Enabled Site and we don’t recognize you (for example, because you’ve cleared your cookies, logged out, or you’re using a different device), we will provide a way for you to identify yourself and login via your Stripe Credentials (for example, by sending you a verification code via SMS text message). While you are logged in, Stripe will give you the ability to make purchases using your stored Payment Credentials. Stripe may also allow you to make a purchase with your Payment Credentials by sending a message directly from the email address or phone number stored as your Stripe Credentials (for example, to authorize a purchase via SMS).

If you send us text messages, or have us send you one, don’t forget that your carrier might charge you for that.

3. Stripe’s Role

Stripe Checkout is a way of storing your Payment Credentials, but it doesn’t change anything else about your relationship with the Merchant you’re paying or your bank or credit card company. You are ultimately responsible for the purchases you make using Stripe Checkout. Also, the Merchant is the one responsible for providing you the goods or services that you purchase using Stripe Checkout, not Stripe. Stripe will use our reasonable efforts to keep your Payment Credentials secure.

4. Making Changes

If you want to delete your Payment Credentials, stop storing information using Stripe Checkout, or change your settings, you can send an email to support@stripe.com.

5. Representations and Warranties

By using Stripe Checkout you represent and warrant that you are at least 18 years of age and that you will not use Stripe Checkout for any fraudulent, unlawful or abusive purpose.

6. Disclaimers

THE DISCLAIMING ENTITIES DO NOT WARRANT THAT THE FUNCTIONS CONTAINED IN THE SERVICES WILL BE UNINTERRUPTED OR ERROR FREE. THE DISCLAIMING ENTITIES SHALL NOT BE RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY SERVICE INTERRUPTIONS, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, SYSTEM FAILURES OR OTHER INTERRUPTIONS THAT MAY AFFECT THE RECEIPT, PROCESSING, ACCEPTANCE, COMPLETION OR SETTLEMENT OF PAYMENT TRANSACTIONS.

7. Limitations of Liability; Force Majeure

IN NO EVENT SHALL THE DISCLAIMING ENTITIES’ TOTAL CUMULATIVE LIABILITY ARISING FROM OR RELATING TO these Terms of Service EXCEED $10 US Dollars. Each party acknowledges that the other party has entered into these Terms of Service relying on the limitations of liability stated herein and that those limitations are an essential basis of the bargain between the parties. In addition to and without limiting any of the foregoing, no Disclaiming Entity shall have any liability for any failure or delay resulting from any condition beyond the reasonable control of such party, including but not limited to governmental action or acts of terrorism, earthquake, fire, flood or other acts of God, labor conditions, power failures and Internet disturbances.

If any provision of these Terms of Service shall be adjudged by any court of competent jurisdiction to be unenforceable or invalid, that provision shall be limited or eliminated to the minimum extent necessary so that these Terms of Service shall otherwise remain in full force and effect and remain enforceable between the parties.
