        4.        Link to Your Primary Bank Account.  To use the Services, You shall enroll and link to your Netspend Account one or more of your transaction accounts, such as a checking, money market savings, or regular savings account, that You hold with a bank or credit union (“Your Bank”).  At all times, You shall designate one of your transaction accounts held at Your Bank to be linked to your Netspend Account. (“Your Primary Bank Account”).  You may change Your Primary Bank Account, except to the extent that Netspend prevents or postpones the change, such as to complete a pending Electronic Payment.  When You request an Electronic Payment to be made to or from your Netspend Account, Your Bank may impose a fee for its product or service to You, and Netspend shall not be liable to You or any other person in connection with such fee or similar charge.  As between You and Netspend, You shall be responsible for any act or omission made by Your Bank in connection with your request of or Netspend’s action relating to an Electronic Payment.

        6.        Netspend’s Liability for Failure to Make Electronic Payments.  If Netspend does not timely initiate an Electronic Payment that You request or otherwise authorize or if Netspend commits an act of gross negligence in establishing the amount of your request for that Electronic Payment, Netspend shall be liable for any loss or damage that You experience as a result of the untimely initiation of, or incorrect amount of, that payment.  However, Netspend shall not be liable to You under other circumstances relating to an Electronic Payment, including:

  •         If, through no fault of Netspend, You do not maintain accurate information relating to Your Primary Bank Account;
  •         If the online channel or internet system that You use when requesting the Electronic Payment is not working properly and You have knowledge of the defect in that channel or system when You are seeking to use the Netspend App or your Netspend Account; or
  •         If one or more other provisions contained in this Agreement may relieve Netspend of its liability.

        7.        Confidentiality of Information.  Netspend may disclose any data or other information, including any nonpublic personal information about You, to any third party in connection with your use of your Netspend Account or your request for an Electronic Payment if the disclosure is:

  •         Necessary to conduct or to complete any transaction for the Electronic Payment, to settle or to document the Electronic Payment, or to otherwise support the Services offered to You;
  •         Authorized by You, which authorization may be made orally or in writing; or
  •         Permitted by Netspend’s Privacy Notice.  
  • To comply with government agency or court orders, or other legal or administrative reporting requirements.
  • To detect, prevent, investigate, or report potential fraud or other illegal activity

        8.        Consumer Liability for Unauthorized Transfers or Unauthorized Electronic Payment.  

        Tell us AT ONCE if You believe the Credentials of your Netspend Account have been stolen, or if You believe that any EFT or Electronic Payment has been made without your permission using your Credentials.  You could lose all the money in Your Primary Bank Account (plus your maximum overdraft line or credit).  Telephoning is the best way of keeping your possible losses down.  You can call: 1-844-985-3596 or write:

CUSTOMER SUPPORT–UNAUTHORIZED TRANSACTION ALERT
258 3rd  Ave
Venice, CA 90291
1-844-985-3596
EWAsupport@netspend.com

        If You tell us within 2 business days after You learn of the loss of your Credentials, You can lose no more than $50 if someone used your Credentials without your permission.  If You do NOT tell us within 2 business days after You learn of the loss of your Credentials, or that an EFT or other Electronic Payment has been made without your permission using your Credentials, and we can prove we could have stopped someone from using your Credentials without your permission if You had told us, You could lose as much as $500.

        If your statement shows EFTs that You did not make or authorize to make through your Netspend Account, tell us at once.  If You do not tell us within 60 days after the statement was mailed to You or electronically sent to You, You may not get back the money You lost after the 60-day period if we can prove that we can stop someone from taking the money if You had told us in time.  If a good reason (e.g., hospital stay) kept You from telling us within the required period(s), we will extend the time period(s).

        9.        Electronic Payment.  You may request an Electronic Payment to be initiated by Netspend, based on Netspend’s formula for an amount of funds that Netspend may, at its discretion, provide to You in reference to an amount of funds that are due to You from your employer.  An Electronic Payment intended to transfer funds from Netspend’s service provider to You in an amount corresponding to your earned wages is defined in this Agreement as an “Earned Wage Payment.”  You acknowledge and agree that each Earned Wage Payment is a payment to You from Netspend via its service provider and does not constitute any payment by Netspend (or its service provider) of wages or other benefits owed to You from any person.  Netspend may, in its sole discretion, use any other term or description for an Earned Wage Payment, such as in Netspend’s marketing or promotional materials.  

As between You and Netspend, You warrant that, as of the time You request an Earned Wage Payment, that You: (i) have rights to the employer or other firm (such as an employment firm) to receive wages, salary, or other cash benefits due to be paid (“wages”); (ii) have performed all of the work or other services necessary for your rights to the wages; (iii) shall hold Netspend harmless for any and all claims that may be made against You by any person in connection with the payment or receipt of your wages.  If You request an Earned Wage Payment, You shall comply with all of the terms and conditions that Netspend, or its service provider, may impose, through any mechanism on the Netspend App or in your Netspend Account.  Without limiting the scope of the preceding sentence, for each Earned Wage Payment that You request, You agree that: (a) the amount of funds to be transferred for the Earned Wage Payment may be limited to be at or below any threshold that Netspend or its service provider, each acting in its sole discretion may set; (b) all information that You provide to Netspend is accurate; and (c) You will hold Netspend harmless for any loss or damage that You may experience if Netspend or its service provider, limits the amount or timing of any Earned Wage Payment to conform with the thresholds or limits that are established for your Netspend Account.  This means that if the amount or the timing of an Earned Wage Payment does not conform to the thresholds or limits that may be established for your Netspend Account, your request may be modified so that an Electronic Payment may satisfy part of your request for the Earned Wage Payment.  

        10.        Settlement of Funds in Your Primary Bank Account.  You warrant that You are responsible for the timing of making any request for an Earned Wage Payment in order for funds to be available to You in Your Primary Bank Account.  Netspend shall bear no liability of any kind relating to the time that You make a request for an Earned Wage Payment.  You warrant that You will hold Netspend harmless for any and all losses, costs, or damages to You of any kind due to the timing of any settlement or availability of funds in Your Primary Bank Account, except if Netspend does not timely initiate the processing of the Earned Wage Payment.  This means that, even though Netspend shall be obligated to You to effect the Electronic Payment in the amount you request for each Earned Wage Payment, the funds made available to You by Your Bank could be available to Your on a date than is later than You expected (when making your request via the Netspend App) or the funds Your Bank makes available may be less than the amount You had requested.  You could, for example, receive an amount from Your Bank in Your Primary Bank Account that is less than the amount You had requested for the Earned Wage Payment if Your Bank delays access to such funds or exercises any right Your Bank may hold to set off or make any other deduction from Your Primary Bank Account.

        11.        Statements for Your Netspend Account.  

You have the right to receive an account statement showing transactions in your Netspend Account.  You may view your Netspend Account statement by logging into your Netspend Account on the Netspend App.

  1. Transfers. You can get a receipt at the time you make any transfer to or from your Netspend Account using the Netspend App.
  2. Periodic statements.  Netspend shall provide You with a monthly account statement (unless there are no transfers in a particular month).  In any case, You will receive a statement for your Netspend Account at least quarterly.

12.        Security Measures for Your Netspend Account and Electronic Payments.  

Under certain circumstances, in order to protect your Netspend Account and the security and integrity of the network that uses the Netspend App or the Services, Netspend may, in its sole discretion, take account-level or transaction-level actions.  Netspend’s decision about limitations and holds may be based on confidential criteria that are essential to Netspend’s management of risk and the protection of the Netspend App or the Services, its customers, or its service providers.  Netspend may use propriety fraud and risk modeling when assessing the risk associated with your Netspend Account.  Netspend also may be restricted by regulation or a governmental authority from disclosing certain information to You about such decisions.  Netspend shall not have any obligation to disclose to You information regarding Netspend’s risk management or its security procedures.

  1.         Limitations on frequency of Electronic Payments.  For security reasons and other reasons, Netspend imposes limits on the number or frequency of Electronic Payments You can make using your Netspend Account.  Netspend may, in its sole discretion, restrict the transactions that You may make for Earned Wage Payments, such as by permitting up to five transactions each calendar month.
  2.         Limitations on dollar amounts of Electronic Payments.  Netspend may, in its sole discretion, restrict the amount that You may request for an Electronic Payment.  For example, Netspend may allow You to request an Earned Wage Payment in an amount that is up to half of your earned wages (as of the time of the request) for that Electronic Payment.
  3.         Account limitations.  Limitations are implemented to help protect your Netspend Account or to protect Netspend’s Services.  Your Netspend Account may be limited when:
  • Netspend suspects someone could be using your Netspend Account without your knowledge;
  • Another financial institution, such as Your Primary Bank, advises that someone has used your linked payment methods without permission;
  • Netspend is obligated by the law to do so; or
  • Netspend reasonably believes You have breached this Agreement.

You will need to resolve any issues with your Netspend Account before a limitation can be removed.  Normally, this is done after You provide Netspend with the information that is requested. However, if Netspend reasonably believes a risk still exists after You have provided us that information, Netspend may take action to protect itself, its users, a third party, or You from reversals, fees, fines, penalties, legal and/or regulatory risks and any other liability.

  1.         Holds. A hold is an action that Netspend may take either at the transaction level or the account level.  When Netspend places a hold on an Electronic Payment, the money is not available to either the depositor or the recipient.  Netspend reviews several factors before placing a hold on an Electronic Payment, including transaction activity in the account.  Netspend may place a hold on transactions involving your Netspend Account if Netspend, in its sole discretion, believes that there may be a high level of risk associated with You or your Netspend Account, or that placing such a hold is necessary based on a number of factors.  Risk-based holds may remain in place for up to 180 days from the date the Electronic Payment was made.  Netspend may release the hold earlier under certain circumstances, but any earlier release is at Netspend’s sole discretion.

13. “Business Day” means any day of the week that is not a Saturday, Sunday or federal holiday. Any references to “days” found in this Agreement mean calendar days unless indicated otherwise.  Non-Business Days are considered part of the following Business Day.

II.Assignment of Your Earned Wages

        1.        Assignment.  This Section II represents a wage-assignment between You and Netspend’s designated service provider, Rain Technologies Inc. (“Assignee”).  As between You and Assignee, You warrant that, each time You request an Electronic Payment that is an Earned Wage Payment, that You: (i) have rights to the relevant employer or other firm (such as an employment firm) to receive wages, salary, or other cash benefits due to be paid (“wages”); and (ii) have performed all of the work or other services of any kind necessary for your rights to the wages.  Upon each request You make for an Earned Wage Payment, You hereby grant, assign, and transfer to Assignee any and all rights that You hold corresponding to the wages for that request.

        2.        You Do Not Have Any Right of Revocation.  Your assignment to Assignee of any and all of the rights to your wages is irrevocable as to each Earned Wage Payment that You request.  You have no right to reverse or countermand any instruction You make on the Netspend App or otherwise in your Netspend Account to assign any and all rights to Assignee of your wages.  This means that: (i) once You complete a transaction (e.g., click “complete” or “submit” when requesting an Electronic Payment) Assignee, and not You, holds all of the rights to your wages that corresponds to the amount of the Earned Wage Payment; and (ii) your paycheck when paid by your employer will reflect the deduction or other subtraction of the wages You have earned.    

        3.        The Rights to Receive Your Earned Wages May Be Further Assigned.  By using your Netspend Account, and upon each of your requests for an Earned Wage Payment, You warrant that only You hold the rights to your earned wages.  You further warrant that You have not entered into any other agreement or transaction that could provide any person with rights to your wages.  Assignee may assign its rights to your earned wages in connection with any Earned Wage Payment to any person, regardless of the time in relation to effecting any Electronic Payment.

        4.        Your Consent to Allow Netspend or Its Service Provider to Monitor Your Accounts to Enforce Netspend’s Rights; Warranties.  By using your Netspend Account, and upon each of your requests for an Earned Wage Payment, You signify your consent to allow Netspend or Assignee to use any method that Netspend or Assignee, may select to monitor or otherwise collect information about your accounts for the purpose of enforcing Netspend’s rights under this Agreement.  This means that You agree that Netspend or Assignee may collect data pertaining to Your Primary Bank Account or any other account in order to monitor transactions to allow Netspend or Assignee to assess whether You are using any other services provided by another party that could impair or obstruct Assignee’s rights to your assignment of your earned wages.  You further agree that each warranty that You provide in Section III applies to each of your requests for an Earned Wage Payment.

  1. DISPUTE RESOLUTION, MANDATORY ARBITRATION AND CLASS ACTION WAIVER

All claims and disputes, including all statutory claims and disputes, arising out of or relating in any way to these Terms of Use or your use of the Services shall be finally resolved by binding arbitration on an individual basis, except that You and Netspend are not required to arbitrate any dispute in which either party seeks equitable relief for alleged unlawful use of copyrights, trademarks, trade names, logos, trade secrets, or patents. This means that unless You opt out of arbitration as provided below or except for the equitable relief described in the previous sentence, neither Netspend nor You will sue in court before a judge or jury.  Netspend and You are also agreeing that no dispute subject to the terms of this Section 16 will be resolved as a class.  Instead, one neutral arbitrator will decide the dispute, and the arbitrator’s decision will be final except for a limited right of appeal under the Federal Arbitration Act.  The arbitrator may award declaratory or injunctive relief only for the individual claims between Netspend and You.

The arbitration will be administered by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”), in accordance with its rules of practice and procedure (the “Rules”) in effect at the time that the claim is filed, except to the extent the Rules conflict with these Terms of Use. If the AAA is not available to arbitrate, the parties will select an alternative arbitral forum.  The AAA Consumer Arbitration Rules are available online at www.adr.org or by calling AAA at 1-800-778-7879.  Any claims or disputes involving less than US $10,000 may be resolved through binding non-appearance-based arbitration, at the option of the party seeking relief.  For claims or disputes where the amount sought is US $10,000 or more, the right to an in-person oral hearing will be determined by the Rules.  The arbitrator will be bound to follow applicable federal and state laws and regulations in deciding all issues and in rendering any award.  Netspend and You will be entitled to invoke the rules of discovery applicable to state court proceedings.  The arbitration proceedings will be conclusive and not appealable, and any party to any award rendered in any arbitration proceeding will be entitled to have judgment entered on that award.  The number of arbitrators shall be one, selected in accordance with the Rules, and the language of the arbitration will be English.  Unless non-appearance arbitration is elected, the arbitration will be held in New York, New York, provided that, if You notify us in writing within 30 days after the initial notice of arbitration is delivered by a party, the arbitration may be held in Chicago, Illinois or Los Angeles, California.  If non-appearance arbitration is elected, the arbitration will be conducted by phone, online, written submissions, or a combination of the three, at the election of the party initiating arbitration, and the arbitration will not involve a personal appearance by parties or witnesses unless the parties mutually agree otherwise.  Other than costs that Netspend is required to pay under the Rules, each party shall bear its own costs and expenses of the arbitration and one-half (1/2) of the fees and costs for the arbitrator, except as otherwise provided in the Rules or if the arbitrator determines the fees and costs should be borne by one of the parties.  The arbitrator may not award or assess punitive damages against either party.

NETSPEND AND YOU AGREE THAT ANY PROCEEDINGS TO RESOLVE ANY DISPUTE, INCLUDING ARBITRATION AND LITIGATION IN COURT, WILL BE CONDUCTED ONLY INDIVIDUALLY. Neither Netspend nor You will seek to have any dispute heard as a class action, a class wide arbitration, a private attorney-general action, or any other proceeding in which either of Netspend or You act(s) or propose(s) to act as a representative for others. Netspend and You also agree that no arbitration or other proceeding will be combined with another arbitration or proceeding without the written consent of Netspend, You, and every other party to that arbitration or proceeding.

You may opt out of the arbitration and class actions waiver set forth above by sending a written notice of your decision to opt-out in accordance with this Section 16.  If you do so, neither You nor Netspend can force the other to arbitrate.  To opt out, You must notify Netspend in writing no later than thirty (30) days after first becoming subject to these Terms of Use.  Your notice must include your name and address, your username and the email address You used to set up your account for the Services, and an unequivocal statement that You want to opt out of this arbitration.  Send your notice to:

If You elect to opt out, each of You and Netspend irrevocably (i) consents to the exclusive jurisdiction and venue of the state and federal courts in the State of Delaware in connection with any matter arising out of this Agreement, (ii) waives any objection to such jurisdiction or venue, (iii) agrees not to commence any legal proceedings related hereto except in such courts, (iv) consents to and agrees to accept service of process to vest personal jurisdiction over it in any such courts and (v) waives any right to trial by jury in any action in connection with this Agreement

This Section 16 may be amended from time to time in accordance with these Terms of Use.  If you did not opt out of mandatory arbitration as provided above, You may reject any change Netspend makes to this Section 16 by sending Netspend a notice within thirty (30) days after first becoming subject to the amended Terms of Use.  Send your notice rejecting changes to this Section 16 to the address provided above.  In the event of a dispute between You and Netspend, to invoke your right to apply an earlier version of this Section 16, You must retain a copy of your rejection notice, as well as proof of mailing of your rejection notice within the prescribed period.  Netspend reserves the right to make additional amendments to this Section 16.  If you wish to reject additional changes to this Section 16, You must notify Netspend in accordance with this Section 16 for each change in accordance with the terms hereof.
