Service Marks – Permitted Use of CuminPay Marks
CuminPay marks identify products and services and let the public know the source of those products and services. You may not use the CuminPay logos or “design” marks (as opposed to our service marks consisting solely of words) under any circumstances without our prior written authorization.
This Agreement provides a general description of the Services that CuminPay or its third-party providers may provide to you (“Customers”) and your customers (“End Users”). We provide you with a more detailed description of the Services through published software libraries and application programming interfaces that may be used to access the Services (the “API”).
Before using the Services, you must register with CuminPay and create an account (a “CuminPay Account”).
Part B describes the process of registering for and using your CuminPay Account.
Part C describes your use of the API and the Services.
Part D describes the Payment Processing Services, which are one type of Service provided by CuminPay.
Part E describes proper handling, management, and use of data generated during your use of the Services, including your End Users’ data.
You may only use the Services for legitimate Transactions with End Users (i.e., your Customers). You know your End Users better than we do, and you are responsible for your relationship with them. CuminPay is not responsible for the products or services you publicize or sell or if you accept donations, for your communication to your End Users of the intended use of such donations. You affirm that you are solely responsible for the nature and quality of the products or services you provide, and for delivery, support, refunds, returns, and for any other ancillary services you provide to your End Users.
CuminPay provides Services to you but we have no way of knowing if any payment transaction, purchase, sale, donation, order, or other transaction (each a “Transaction”) is accurate or complete, or typical for your business. You are responsible for knowing whether a Transaction initiated by your End User is erroneous or suspicious. If you are unsure if a Transaction is erroneous or suspicious, you agree to research the Transaction and, if necessary, contact your End User before fulfilling or completing the Transaction. You are solely responsible for any losses you incur due to erroneous or fraudulent Transactions in connection with your use of the Services.
We will provide you with support to resolve general issues relating to your CuminPay Account and your use of the Services. Any details please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
You are solely responsible for providing support to your End Users regarding your services, product or service delivery, support, returns, refunds, and any other issues related to your products and services and business activities. We are not responsible for providing support for the Services to your End Users unless we agree to do so in a separate agreement with you or one of your End Users.
Service Requirements, Limitations and Restrictions
Suspicion of Unauthorized or Illegal Use
We may refuse, condition, or suspend any Transactions that we believe: (i) may violate this Agreement or other agreements you may have with CuminPay; (ii) are unauthorized, fraudulent or illegal; or (iii) expose you, CuminPay, or others to risks unacceptable to CuminPay. If we suspect or know that you are using or have used the Services for unauthorized, fraudulent, or illegal purposes, we may share any information related to such activity with the appropriate financial institution, regulatory authority, or law enforcement agency consistent with our legal obligations. This information may include information about you, your CuminPay Account, your End Users, and Transactions made through your use of the Services.

a. Term and Termination: This Agreement is effective upon the date you first access or use the Services and continues until terminated by you or CuminPay.

If you use the Services again or register for another CuminPay Account, you are consenting to this Agreement. We may terminate this Agreement or close your CuminPay Account at any time for any reason (including, without limitation, for any activity that may create harm or loss to the goodwill of a Payment Method) by providing you Notice.

You may use the API solely as described in the documentation to use the Services on websites and through the applications identified in your CuminPay Account. You may manage your CuminPay Account, connect with other service providers, and enable additional features through the CuminPay developer (“Developer Dashboard”). You may not use the API for any purpose, function, or feature not described in the Documentation or otherwise communicated to you by us. Due to the nature of the Services, we will update the API and Documentation from time to time and may add or remove functionality. We will provide you Notice in the event of material changes, deprecations, or removal of functionality from the API so that you may continue using the Services with minimal interruption.
You are granted a nonexclusive and non-transferable license to electronically access and use the CuminPay IP only in the manner described in this Agreement
You may use the Services to upload or publish text, images, and other content (collectively, “Content”) to your CuminPay Account and to third-party sites or applications but only if you agree to obtain the appropriate permissions and, if required, licenses to upload or publish any such Content using the Services. You agree to fully reimburse CuminPay for all fees, fines, losses, claims, and any other costs we may incur that arise from publishing illegal Content through the Services, or claims that Content you published infringes the intellectual property, privacy, or other proprietary rights of others.
Other Services: From time to time we may offer you additional features or services either through us or our third-party service providers that may be subject to additional or different terms of service. All such additional features and services form part of the Services, and you may not use these additional services unless you agree to the applicable agreement or terms (if any) for those services.
We may also provide you access to services identified as “beta” or pre-release services. You understand that these services are still in development, may contain bugs or errors, may be feature incomplete, may materially change prior to a full commercial launch, or may never be released commercially. We provide beta services AS IS, and without warranty of any kind, and your use of, or reliance on beta services is at your own risk.
Third Party Services
CuminPay provides access to third-party services, products, and promotions that utilize, integrate, or provide ancillary services to the Services (“Third-Party Services”). These Third-Party Services are provided for your convenience only and do not constitute our approval, endorsement, or recommendation of any such Third-Party Services for you. You access and use any Third-Party Service based on your own evaluation and at your own risk.
The ACH network is controlled and managed by the National Automated Clearinghouse Association (NACHA) and its member organizations
You understand and accept your role as the Originator (as defined in the NACHA Operating Rules). You agree to obtain your End User’s consent to debit or credit their bank account and initiate a Charge over the ACH network. Such consent must be in a form and manner that complies with the NACHA Operating Rules and the Documentation for ACH Transactions. As with other Payment Processing Services, you may not, and may not attempt to send or receive funds to or from a person, entity, or state where such Transactions are prohibited by applicable Law. You also agree to maintain the security and integrity of all information you collect as part of an ACH Transaction.
To enable us to process Transactions for you, you authorize and direct us, our affiliates and third-party service providers to receive and settle any payment processing proceeds. You appoint CuminPay as your agent for the limited purpose of directing, receiving, holding and settling such proceeds.
Except where CuminPay and a Customer have otherwise agreed, you maintain the direct relationship with your End Users and are responsible for: (i) acquiring appropriate consent to submit charges through the Service on their behalf; (ii) providing confirmation or receipts to Customers for each Transaction; (iii) verifying Customers’ identities; and (iv) determining a Customer’s eligibility and authority to complete Transactions. However, even authorized Transactions may be subject to a Dispute.
Responsibilities and Disclosures to Your End Users
It is very important to us that your End Users understand the purpose, amount, and conditions of Transactions you submit to us and our third-party service providers. With that in mind, when using the Services you agree to: (i) accurately communicate, and not misrepresent, the nature of the Transaction, and the amount of the Transaction in the appropriate currency prior to submitting it to the API; (ii) provide a receipt that accurately describes each Transaction to Customers; (iii) provide End Users a meaningful way to contact you in the event that the product or service is not provided as described; (iv) not use the Services to sell products or services in a manner that is unfair or deceptive, exposes End Users to unreasonable risks, or does not disclose material terms of a purchase in advance; and (v) inform End Users that CuminPay and its third parties process Transactions for you.
If you leave any funds dormant in a CuminPay Account and you do not give us instructions where to send them, we may be required by Law to deem the funds to be abandoned by you, and to deliver them to various government agencies. To the extent required by Law, we will attempt to provide you Notice if we hold funds payable to you in an account beyond the applicable dormancy period for abandoned property.

Security and Fraud Controls
CuminPay’s Security: CuminPay is responsible for protecting the security of Data in our possession.
