All rights not expressly granted to Payer are reserved by Invoice Cloud and its licensors. No rights are granted to anyone other than the Payer using or accessing the Invoice Cloud Services in compliance with these Terms and Conditions.

Individual Payer account passwords cannot be shared or used by more than one individual Payer account, and Non-Payer Users are not permitted under these Terms and Conditions to use any Payer account, identifying information, payment information or other information derived from a Payer’s account. Where Payer is an organization, passwords may be reassigned from time to time to new Payer employees or other authorized personnel who are replacing former employees/personnel who have terminated employment or otherwise changed job status or function and no longer use the Services.
Payer and Non-Payer Users may not: (i) interfere with, disrupt, redirect or otherwise affect in any harmful, damaging or negative way the integrity or performance or the economic benefits to Invoice Cloud of the Services or the data contained therein; or (ii) attempt to gain unauthorized access, which means access not authorized by Invoice Cloud as required hereunder (and, where applicable, access not also authorized through a Payer Written Authorization), to the Invoice Cloud Services or its related systems or networks, whether through use of email addresses that do not belong to the actual Payer or through any other means.
Payer and Non-Payer Users shall not access the Invoice Cloud Services for purposes of monitoring its availability, performance or functionality, or for any other benchmarking, for competitive purposes or for the financial gain of any party other than Invoice Cloud.
PROHIBITED USE: Invoice Cloud does not accept payments from any Non-Payer Users or other third-party payers, except where a Non-Payer Use has: (a) prior written authorization from Invoice Cloud signed by the Chief Executive Officer; and (b) has been granted Payer’s express written permission in the form of a Payer Written Authorization, to use Payer’s email address to pay their bill using these Services. Third party commercial payers and/or payment aggregators that have not obtained the required authorizations listed in the immediately preceding sentence are expressly prohibited from submitting payments through the Services or otherwise using the Services, whether such payments are submitted via the web, interactive voice response (IVR) system, or any other Invoice Cloud interface. Any use of so-called “bots” or other automated means through which any Non Payer User accesses or attempts to access the Invoice Cloud Services is expressly prohibited by these Terms and Conditions and anyone using such methods or technology to access or attempt to access the Invoice Cloud Services shall be liable to Invoice Cloud for Damages (as defined herein). By using the Services, you represent and warrant that you are either: (i) an actual and direct Payer of an Invoice Cloud Biller and are paying a bill on your own behalf; (ii) an authorized W-2 employee or relative of the actual Payer and are paying a bill on behalf of the Payer; or (iii) a Non-Payer Use that has obtained prior written authorization from Invoice Cloud signed by the Chief Executive Officer to use the Services, and have been granted Payer’s express written permission in the form of a Payer Written Authorization, to use Payer’s email address to pay their bill using these Services. You further represent and warrant that you are not using the Services for any financial or commercial gain. You agree that any breach of the foregoing representations and warranties constitutes a material breach of these Terms and Conditions. Invoice Cloud reserves the right to reject or reverse any and all unauthorized payments made from Non-Payer Users or other third party agencies not specifically permitted by these terms and conditions, and you agree to indemnify, defend and hold harmless Invoice Cloud and its customers and their customers from and against any interchange fees, merchant fees, or similar or related fees, costs or expenses, as well as all other costs and fees, including internal costs to Invoice Cloud to research and compile charges by you, incurred in processing a payment transaction in violation of the foregoing representations and warranties in this paragraph.
Additionally, any Non-Payer User using or accessing the Services agrees to indemnify, defend, and hold harmless each of the Payer, the Biller and Invoice Cloud (collectively, the “Indemnitees”) from and against any and all direct and indirect damages, liabilities, costs, lost revenue, lost profits and expenses, including reasonable attorneys’ fees, suffered or incurred by any of the Indemnitees as a result of the Non-Payer User’s use of or access to the Services or breach of these Terms and Conditions (“Damages”). Non-Payer Users are not permitted under these Terms and Conditions to replace or supplant electronic payments initiated directly by Payers, with credit or virtual card transactions submitted by the Non-Payer User through which the Non-Payer User benefits by being a card issuer, or being affiliated with a card issuer, who shares card association interchange or other network fees with such Non-Payer User or Non-Payer User’s affiliate. Any Non-Payer User accessing these Services agrees that any violation or breach of this paragraph will subject that Non-Payer User to Damages.
Non-Payer User agrees that each Indemnitee shall be entitled to immediate injunctive relief, without posting a bond, in the event Non-Payer User uses or accesses the Services in any way inconsistent with or in violation of any of the provisions hereof (“Injunctive Relief”).

Payer and Non-Payer User are each independently responsible for all activity occurring under Payer’s accounts and shall abide by all applicable local, state, and national laws, treaties and regulations in connection with Payer’s and Non-Payer User’s use of the Services, including those related to data privacy, communications, export or import of data and the transmission of technical, personal or other data. Payer and Non-Payer User shall: (i) notify Invoice Cloud immediately of any unauthorized use of any password or account or any other known or suspected breach of security; (ii) report to Invoice Cloud and immediately stop any copying or distribution of Content that is known or suspected by Payer or Non-Payer User; and (iii) not impersonate another user of Invoice Cloud’s Services or provide any fictitious, fake, false, misleading or contrived identity information, including email addresses associated with any party other than the actual and direct Payer, to gain access to or use the Service. Use of any email addresses other than the Actual Payer Email Address (as defined below) is expressly prohibited by these Terms and Conditions, is a material breach of these Terms and Conditions, and subjects anyone using such other email addresses to liability for Damages, as defined herein.
4. Account Information and Data
Invoice Cloud does not own any data, information or material that Payer submits to the Services in the course of using the Services (“Payer Data”). Payer, not Invoice Cloud, shall have sole responsibility for the accuracy and intellectual property ownership or right to use of all Payer Data, and, to the extent permitted by applicable law, Invoice Cloud shall not be responsible or liable for the deletion, correction, destruction, damage, or loss of any Payer Data by Invoice Cloud, the Payer or otherwise. In the event these Terms and Conditions are terminated, upon request within 60 days thereafter, Invoice Cloud will make available to Payer a file of the Payer Data.

Invoice Cloud alone (and its licensors, where applicable) shall own all right, title and interest, including all related Intellectual Property Rights, in and to the Invoice Cloud Technology, the Content and the Service and any suggestions, ideas, enhancement requests, feedback, integration components and application programming interfaces, recommendations or other information provided by Payer or Non-Payer Users or any other party relating to the Service. In the event any such intellectual property rights in the Invoice Cloud Technology, the Content or the Services do not fall within the specifically enumerated works that constitute works made for hire under applicable copyright laws or are deemed inventions owned by Invoice Cloud, Payer and Non-Payer User hereby irrevocably, expressly and automatically assigns all right, title and interest worldwide in and to such Intellectual Property Rights to Invoice Cloud.

6. E-mail Notifications
The Payer hereby consents to receiving e-mail notifications as a reminder that payments are due or to be paid with respect to a Biller’s invoice or charges. Such e-mail notifications will include a link to the Services. Payer can opt out of such e-mail notifications by following instructions contained on the notification. Until Payer opts out of such e-mail notifications, such notifications will continue. All Non-Payer Users of the Services agree not to use any email address, other than the actual email address of the Payer (“Actual Payer Email Address”), in accessing or using the Services where permitted hereunder. Any person who, or entity that, accesses, uses or otherwise interacts with the Services shall be subject to the foregoing email address restrictions and acknowledges and agrees that: (I) any access to or use of the Services using any email address other than an Actual Payer Email Address shall be a material violation of these Terms and Conditions; (II) as a result of such violation, such person or entity shall be liable to the Indemnitees for Damages and for Injunctive Relief. For avoidance of doubt, any Non-Payer Users or other third parties other than Payer who use any email address other than the Actual Payer Email address agree that in doing so they are violating these Terms and Conditions and the Intellectual Property Rights of and trade secret rights belonging exclusively to Invoice Cloud or its applicable licensor(s).
7. Termination for Cause
Any breach or violation of these Terms and Conditions or unauthorized use of the Invoice Cloud Technology or Services will be deemed a material breach of the Terms and Conditions. Invoice Cloud, in its sole discretion, may terminate Payer’s or any other Non-Payer User’s password, account or use of the Services if Payer or such other Non-Payer User breaches or otherwise fails to comply with these Terms and Conditions. In addition, Invoice Cloud may terminate a free account at any time in its sole discretion, including without limitation for any violation of these Terms and Conditions. Payer agrees and acknowledges that Invoice Cloud has no obligation to retain the Payer Data, and may delete such Payer Data, if Payer has materially breached the Terms and Conditions, including but not limited to failure to pay outstanding fees, and such breach has not been cured within 30 days of notice of such breach.
8. Representations & Warranties
Payer and Non-Payer User represents and warrants that it has the legal power and authority to enter into the Terms and Conditions. Payer and Non-Payer User represents and warrants that it has not falsely identified itself nor provided any false information, including but not limited to email addresses other than Actual Payer Email Addresses, to gain access to the Services and agrees that to do so would be a violation of these Terms and Conditions that subjects such Payer or Non-Payer User to Damages owed to Invoice Cloud. Payer and Non-Payer User represents and warrants that all billing information provided to Invoice Cloud is true, accurate, correct and is or was provided pursuant to a Payer Written Authorization where required hereunder.
9. Convenience Fees are Non-Refundable; Indemnification
Any convenience fees paid by or on behalf of Payer are non-refundable by Invoice Cloud to Payer once processed. Payer and Non-Payer User shall indemnify and hold Invoice Cloud, Biller and each of their licensors and each such party’s parent organizations, subsidiaries, affiliates, officers, directors, employees, attorneys and agents harmless from and against any and all claims, costs, damages, losses, liabilities and expenses (including attorneys’ fees and costs) arising out of or in connection with: (i) Electronic Check (EFT)/ACH reject fees assessed from transactions by or on behalf of a Payer, and chargebacks; (ii) a claim alleging that use of the Payer Data infringes the rights of, or has caused harm to, a third party; (iii) a claim, which if true, would constitute a violation by Payer or Non Payer User of these Terms and Conditions or any representation or warranty herein; or (iv) a claim arising from Payer’s or Non Payer User’s use of the Service.
