This dispute resolution provision will be governed by the US Federal Arbitration Act, to the extent permissible.

13.2. You must include your name and residence address, the email address you use for your account with EarnUp, and a clear statement that you want to opt out of this arbitration agreement.

This arbitration agreement will survive the termination of your relationship with EarnUp.

  1. MISCELLANEOUS. You will comply with all laws, rules and regulations now or hereafter promulgated by any government authority or agency that are applicable to your use of the Services, or the transactions contemplated in these Terms of Use. You may not assign your rights or obligations hereunder, and any attempt by you to sublicense, assign or transfer any of the rights, duties, or obligations hereunder or to exceed the scope of these Terms of Use is void.

This is the entire agreement between you and EarnUp with regard to the matters described herein and govern your use of the Services, superseding any prior agreements between you and EarnUp with respect thereto. The failure of EarnUp to exercise or enforce any right or provision of these Terms of Use will not constitute a waiver of such right or provision. If any provision of these Terms of Use is found by a court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, the parties nevertheless agree that the court should endeavor to give effect to the parties’ intentions as reflected in the provision, and the other provisions hereof will remain in full force and effect. You agree that regardless of any statute or law to the contrary, any claim or cause of action arising out of these Terms of Use or related to use of the Services must be filed within three (3) months after such claim or cause of action arose or be forever barred.

In the event any of your beneficial funds from the Omnibus Account arrive at a Network Bank through a Deposit Network Service, they may be eligible for FDIC insurance, however, in the event you or the Financial Service Provider have funds, either directly or indirectly, at any of the Network Banks, such deposit insurance coverage may be adversely affected, and the principal and any accrued interest may not benefit from FDIC insurance, even if the total amount deposited in that Network Bank through the Deposit Network Service is less than the Standard Maximum Deposit Insurance Amount, as then provided by the FDIC. In addition, in the event of a failure of a Network Bank, you may be requested to provide certain personal information for the purposes of processing a claim to seek the associated FDIC insurance. In the event you do not provide such information on a timely basis, it is possible the beneficial funds will not benefit from FDIC insurance. By utilizing the Services, to the extent applicable, you authorize the Financial Service Provider to utilize a Deposit Network Service as described and acknowledge that any associated beneficial principal balance and any accrued interest may or may not benefit from FDIC insurance.

API TERMS

These API Terms (“API Terms”) form a part of, and are incorporated into, the EarnUp Terms of Use, and apply to you, if you access, use, or connect with any EarnUp API. EarnUp API(s) or API(s) means API, any and all software/code in and related to such API, documentation, developer materials, and/or any other software or technology, including but not limited to these API Terms. Any capitalized terms that are used but not defined in these API Terms have the meaning set forth in the EarnUp Terms of Use.

  1. You may not use the APIs and may not accept the API Terms if (a) you are not of legal age to form a binding contract, or (b) you are a person barred from using or receiving the APIs under the applicable laws of the United States or other countries including the country in which you are resident or from which you use the APIs. If you are using the APIs on behalf of an entity, you represent and warrant that you have authority to bind that entity to the API Terms and by accepting the API Terms, you are doing so on behalf of that entity (and all references to “you” or “your” in the API Terms refer to that entity).
  1. In order to access certain APIs you may be required to provide certain information (such as identification or contact details) as part of the registration process for the APIs, or as part of your continued use of the APIs. Any registration information you give to EarnUp will always be accurate and up to date and you’ll inform EarnUp promptly of any updates.
  1. If EarnUp grants you access to APIs, such API Access will be considered part of the Services. “API Access” is the ability via the API to access certain Services, account information and/or features, and to execute commands for your account(s). You may not use your API Access, including any data obtained therefrom, for purposes other than managing your EarnUp account(s) to which the API Access relates. EarnUp grants you a non-exclusive, revocable, non-transferable, non-sublicensable, limited, internal-use license to use the API solely for API Access. Your use of the API Access will not place an unreasonable or disproportionately large load on EarnUp systems (as determined by EarnUp) or exceed access frequency limits set by EarnUp from time to time. EarnUp sets and enforces limits on your use of the APIs (g., limiting the number of API requests that you may make or the number of users you may serve), in EarnUp’s sole discretion. You agree to, and will not attempt to circumvent, such limitations documented with each API. If you would like to use any API beyond these limits, you must obtain EarnUp’s express consent (and EarnUp may decline such request or condition acceptance on your agreement to additional terms and/or charges for that use). To seek such approval, contact the relevant EarnUp API team for information (e.g., by using the EarnUp developers console). In the event your use of any such service (or the Services) terminates your API Access to such Services will terminate effective immediately.

    Some of the software required by or included in EarnUp APIs may be offered under an open-source license. Open-source software licenses constitute separate written agreements. For certain APIs, open-source software is listed in the documentation. To the limited extent the open-source software license expressly supersedes the Terms of Use, the open-source license instead sets forth your agreement with EarnUp for the applicable open-source software.

  1. You will only access (or attempt to access) an API by the means described in the documentation for that API. If EarnUp assigns you developer credentials (e.g., client IDs), you must use them with the applicable APIs. The APIs are designed to help you enhance your websites and/or applications (“API Client(s)”). You will not misrepresent or mask either your identity or your API Client’s identity when using the APIs or developer accounts. Developer credentials (such as passwords, keys, and client IDs) are intended to be used by you and identify your API Client. You will keep your credentials confidential and make reasonable efforts to prevent and discourage other API Clients from using your credentials. Developer credentials may not be embedded in open-source projects.
  1. Sandbox Environment. EarnUp may provide tools and materials such as EarnUp accounts and sample data as part of a sandbox environment to allow developers to use such tools and materials solely for internal testing. All tools and materials are provided “AS IS” and may be removed or modified at any time. You agree that all use of such tools and materials will be in accordance with EarnUp’s usage policies which may change from time to time. Intuit may post on the developer’s site and/or send an email to you with notices of any changes. You may use anonymous, non-live data only. EarnUp may charge you the then-current fee for the tools and materials if EarnUp reasonably believes that you have used such materials in breach of these API Terms.
  1. YOU AGREE THAT EARNUP MAY MONITOR USE OF THE APIS TO ENSURE QUALITY, IMPROVE EARNUP PRODUCTS AND SERVICES, AND VERIFY YOUR COMPLIANCE WITH THE API TERMS. This monitoring may include EarnUp accessing and using your API Client, for example to identify security issues that could affect EarnUp or its users. You will not interfere with this monitoring. EarnUp may use any technical means to overcome such interference. EarnUp may suspend access to the APIs by you or your API Client without notice if EarnUp reasonably believes that you are in violation of the Terms of Use.
  1. You will use commercially reasonable efforts to protect user information collected by your API Client, including personal data, from unauthorized access or use and will promptly report to your users any unauthorized access or use of such information to the extent required by applicable law.
