Publicity. Motionsoft™ may publicly refer to Customer, including on Motionsoft™’s website and in sales presentations, as a Motionsoft™ customer and may use Customer’s logo for such purposes.
TRANSACTIONS AND PROCESSING.
Permissible Transactions. Customer may only use MosoPay to process a Transaction for Customer Services purchased by a Member through a legitimate, bona fide sale of the Customer Services. MosoPay may not be used to process a Transaction for Customer, or otherwise transfer money between a Member and Customer, that does not directly result from a Member’s purchase of Customer Services. Customer may not use MosoPay to provide cash advances to Members or to facilitate the purchase by Members of cash equivalents (e.g., travelers checks, money orders); provided however, that Customer may use MosoPay to facilitate the purchase by Members of a gift certificate or stored value card generally made available by Customer. Motionsoft™ may establish general practices and limits concerning use of MosoPay, including without limitation individual or aggregate transaction limits on the dollar amount or number of Transactions during one or more specified time periods. Customer may not use MosoPay to process Transactions in connection with an illegal transaction or the sale or exchange of any illegal or prohibited goods or services or any of the other business activities set forth in Exhibit A.
ACH Transactions. Motionsoft™ will process each entry or file in accordance with the processing schedule agreed to by the Parties provided that: (i) the entries or files are received by Motionsoft™’s applicable cut-off time on a Business Day; and (ii) the ACH network is open for settlement on that day. Entries or files will be deemed received by Motionsoft™ when the transmission is completed. If Motionsoft™ receives an entry or file after its processing deadline, Motionsoft™ will not be responsible for failure to meet the deadlines of the ACH operator for processing and transmitting the entries or files. If any of the above requirements are not met, Motionsoft™ will use reasonable efforts to transmit the entries or files to the ACH by the next applicable deadline of the next Business Day.
Prohibited Actions. Customer may not: (a) establish a minimum or maximum Purchase Amount as a condition for Member’s use of MosoPay to pay for Customer Services; (b) require Member to provide Customer with the account numbers of any credit card, debit card, or other payment instrument; (c) add any Service use surcharge to a Transaction; (d) separately process as a Transaction the amount of any tax applicable to a purchase of Customer Services; (e) submit to MosoPay a Transaction that was previously returned as a Chargeback; or (f) permit the use of MosoPay for payment of any debt owed to Customer by Member.
Authorization. For any Transaction made with a credit card, Customer acknowledges that: (a) the receipt of an authorization for a Transaction indicates only that, as of the date of the authorization, the underlying Member Account has sufficient credit with the card issuer for the amount of the Purchase Amount; (b) the authorization is not a confirmation of the Member’s identity; nor is an authorization a guarantee by Motionsoft™ that the transaction will not be subject to a chargeback or other reversal; and (c) Motionsoft™ has no responsibility to Customer to investigate the background or confirm the identity of Members, except to the extent required by applicable law.
Processing Errors. Motionsoft™ will attempt to rectify processing errors that it discovers. If the error resulted in Customer’s receipt of more or less than the correct amount to which Customer was entitled, Motionsoft™ will, as applicable, debit or credit the Customer Deposit Account for the difference. Customer’s failure to notify Motionsoft™ of a processing error within thirty (30) days of when it first appears on Customer’s electronic transaction history will be deemed a waiver of any right to amounts owed to Customer. All items not honored by a payee’s bank or cardholder’s issuing bank will be reported to Customer at the time Motionsoft™ receives notification. Motionsoft™ will incorporate the reason that the item was not honored, as made available by the payee’s bank or card issuer, into the notification. It is necessary for Customer to import the returned item files into Customer’s system in order to update the accounts with accurate information.
Transmissions. Motionsoft™ will provide Customer with a fixed schedule of dates by which Motionsoft™ must receive Customer’s transmissions in order to ensure the drafting of Customer’s respective payment transmission dates. In the event that Customer’s transmissions are not received in compliance with the schedule then they will be processed on the next available scheduled draft date.
Funds Transfer. On the second Business Day following Customer’s draft date, Motionsoft™ will forward to Customer by e-mail a detailed remittance report and Motionsoft™ will initiate an electronic transfer into Customer’s operating account for the remittance amount net of all service fees (including Motionsoft™ Fees and third party fees). All items not honored by a payee’s bank or cardholder’s issuing bank will be reported to Customer at the time Motionsoft™ receives said notification. Incorporated into the notification will be the reason that the item was not honored as made available by the payee’s bank or card issuer. Customer must import the returned item files into Customer’s system to update accounts.
Issues with Transfer. In the event that items not honored by a payee’s bank, credit card company or service fees exceed the amount of Customer’s reserve Customer hereby authorizes Motionsoft™ to electronically recover the overage from Customer’s operating account. If there are insufficient funds in Customer’s operating account Customer agrees to wire or transmit overnight the necessary funds to Motionsoft™ within 24 hours of notification to Customer.
Taxes. If in a given calendar year Customer receives (i) more than $20,000 in gross amount of payments and (ii) more than 200 payments, Motionsoft™ and/or its processor may be required by law to report to the Internal Revenue Service (“IRS”) Customer’s name, address, Tax Identification Number (such as a Social Security Number (SSN), or Employer Identification Number (EIN)), the total dollar amount of the payments Customer received in a calendar year, and the total dollar amount of the payments Customer received for each month in a calendar year.
Information. Customer acknowledges and agrees that Motionsoft™ and its payment service providers (a) collect and store all information (including personal information) necessary to receive payments from Members, and (b) run authorization and verifications processes in connection with the payment method selected by Members. Customer agrees to provide all information requested by Motionsoft™ for the provision of MosoPay (including as may be necessary in an application therefor). Customer represents and warrants all such information will be true, accurate, not misleading and complete. Motionsoft™ and its service providers will use reasonable efforts to protect all such information but DOES NOT MAKE AND HEREBY EXPRESSLY DISCLAIMS ANY REPRESENTATION OR WARRANTY THAT SECURITY BREACHES WILL NOT OCCUR WITH RESPECT TO ANY INFORMATION COMMUNICATED THROUGH MOSOPAY, THE INTERNET, OR ANY COMMON CARRIER COMMUNICATIONS FACILITY. NEITHER Motionsoft™ NOR ITS SERVICE PROVIDERS SHALL HAVE ANY LIABILITY OF ANY KIND TO CUSTOMER OR MEMBERS WITH RESPECT TO USE OF MOSOPAY OR ANY INFORMATION PROVIDED IN CONNECTION THEREWITH. In the event of a conflict between any provision of Section 5 and this Section 3.10, the provision in Section 3.10 will prevail.
Reserve. Customer authorizes Motionsoft™ to establish and maintain a reasonable reserve for charge backs, stop payment orders and other disputed items. Motionsoft™ will furnish Customer with regular, timely and complete documentation showing what portion, if any, of the funds being retained have been applied to such charge backs, stop payment orders and disputed items. Upon notice of non-renewal or termination, Motionsoft™ may increase the amount of the reserve to cover post-termination Chargebacks and other disputed items. Motionsoft™ may maintain such reserve for a period not to exceed ninety (90) days.
