3. Paid Services

PathPoint offers a variety of merchant services to assist with accepting payments from end-users. We offer such services at a discounted rate based upon what our costs are from our processing partners. You can view a list of these fees on our pricing schedule which is accessible by logging into your PathPoint Account under “Account Information” – the pricing schedule is defined as the “Payment Terms”.

Your responsibility is to timely pay such fees each month, and in accordance with your agreed upon pricing plan. Typical fees are netted against other funds due to Merchant or debited from the Merchant’s bank account or other payment instrument associated with the Merchant’s account. The Merchant agrees to pay the fees for the Services that are posted from time to time by PathPoint, or third party.

Merchants may increase their prices to include the cost of the fees and disclose these increases to their Purchasers as a "Service Fee". Merchants may only do this in compliance with the applicable Card Network Rules and ACH Rules

Subject to the terms of this Agreement, PathPoint reserves the right to change our fees set forth in our pricing schedule. We will try, but are not required, to give you 30 calendar days’ notice before the effective date of any change in a fee. By continuing to use the Services, you consent to any such change in fees. To withdraw your consent, you must close your PathPoint Account.

We will provide these Communications to you by emailing them to you at the primary email address listed in your PathPoint Account registration, by texting them to you at the primary telephone number listed in your PathPoint Account registration, by emailing or texting you a link or instructions how to access them on a website, or (if permitted by law) by posting them on the Website. We may also provide certain Communications (such as federal and state tax statements) by U.S. mail to the street address listed in your PathPoint Account registration. Communications are considered received by you within 24 hours of the time they are emailed to you, posted to the Website, or mailed to you.

In order to access and retain electronic Communications, you will need the following computer hardware and software:

  • A computer or mobile device with an Internet or mobile connection.

  • For desktop website-based Communications, a modern web browser that includes 256-bit encryption, such as the current version of Chrome (www.google.com/chrome), Internet Explorer (www.microsoft.com/edge), Mozilla Firefox (www.mozilla.com), or Apple Safari (www.apple.com/safari).

  • For application-based Communications, a recent device operating system that supports text messaging, downloading, and applications from the Apple App Store or Google Play store, and the most recent versions of Apple Safari or Google Chrome on iOS or Google Chrome for Android OS.

  • Sufficient storage space to save past Communications or an installed printer to print them.

By accepting these General Terms, you agree and are confirming that you have access to the necessary equipment and are able to receive, open, and print or download a copy of any Communications for your records.

How to Withdraw Your Consent

You may withdraw your consent to receive Communications electronically by contacting Customer Support, including by writing to "PathPoint Merchant Services, LLC., 178 S 700 E St., America Fork, UT 84003."

Please note that if you use a spam filter that blocks or re-routes emails from senders not listed in your email address book, you must add PathPoint to your email address book so that you will be able to receive the Communications we send to you.

If your email address becomes invalid such that electronic Communications sent to you by PathPoint are returned, then we may close your PathPoint Account, and you will not be able to transact any activity using your PathPoint Account until we receive a valid, functioning primary email address from you.

12. Limitations of Liability and Damages


13. Third Party Products

All third-party hardware, software and other products included or sold with the Services are provided solely according to the warranty and other terms specified by the manufacturer, who is solely responsible for service and support for its product. For service, support, or warranty assistance, you should contact the manufacturer directly. PATHPOINT MAKES NO REPRESENTATIONS OR WARRANTIES, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, WITH RESPECT TO SUCH THIRD-PARTY PRODUCTS, AND EXPRESSLY DISCLAIMS ANY WARRANTY OR CONDITION OF MERCHANTABILITY, NON-INFRINGEMENT, OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE.

14. Limitation of Liability

Under no circumstances will our, and the commercial acquiring bank we contract with for the Services (“Bank(s)”) financial liabilities arising out of or related to these General Terms, exceed the total fees paid to us under these General Terms (net of Card Network and other third party fees such as interchange, assessments, and Payment Network Liabilities) for the six months prior to the time the liability arose.
PathPoint and the Bank are only liable for reasonably foreseeable damages directly caused by an act that is within our or the Bank’s respective direct control and are not responsible for your actions, inactions, omissions, delays or failures, or those of third parties.
PathPoint and the Bank are not liable for any claim of negligence if we and the Bank follow our respective procedures, which you agree constitute our exercise of good faith and ordinary care.
PathPoint and the Bank are not liable for any fraud or forgery, other than by each of us.
Neither PathPoint nor the Bank guarantees (a) the security, sequence, timeliness, accuracy or completeness of any service, data or technology, or (b) access to any service or technology.

15. Disputes

“Disputes” are defined as any claim, controversy, or dispute between you and PathPoint, its processors, suppliers or licensors (or their respective affiliates, agents, directors or employees), including any claims relating in any way to these General Terms or the Services, or any other aspect of our relationship.

16. Binding Individual Arbitration

You agree that any claim related to these General Terms or the Service, including claims regarding the applicability of this arbitration clause, will be resolved exclusively and finally by binding arbitration administered by the American Arbitration Association ("AAA"). We or the Bank will select another arbitration forum if the AAA ceases operations.
In the absence of this arbitration clause, you may otherwise have had a right or opportunity to litigate any claim through a court before a judge or jury and to participate or be represented in litigation filed in court by others (including class actions). YOU ARE WAIVING THOSE RIGHTS AND ANY CLAIM YOU HAVE MUST NOW BE RESOLVED THROUGH ARBITRATION.
All claims are subject to arbitration, no matter what theory they are based on. This includes claims based on contract, tort (including intentional tort), fraud, agency, negligence, statutory or regulatory provisions, or any other source of law.
Claims and remedies sought as part of a class action, private attorney general, or other representative action are subject to arbitration on an individual (non-class, non-representative) basis only, and the arbitrator may award relief only on an individual (non-class, non-representative) basis.
The arbitration will be conducted before a single arbitrator and will be limited solely to the claim between you, on the one hand, and us or the Bank, on the other hand. The arbitration, or any portion of it, will not be consolidated with any other arbitration and will not be conducted on a class-wide or class action basis. The prohibition against class action contained in this Section 16 are non-severable from the remainder of this Section 16.
If either party prevails in the arbitration of any claim against the other, the non-prevailing party will reimburse the prevailing party for any fees it paid to the AAA in connection with the arbitration, as well as for any reasonable attorneys' fees incurred by the prevailing party in connection with such arbitration.
Any decision rendered in such arbitration proceedings will be final and binding on the parties, and judgment may be entered in a court of competent jurisdiction.
Rules and forms of the AAA may be obtained and Claims may be filed at any AAA office, www.adr.org, or telephone 1-800-778-7879. Any arbitration hearing at which you appear will take place at a location within Salt Lake County, Salt Lake City, Utah.
This arbitration agreement is made pursuant to a transaction involving interstate commerce, and is governed by the Federal Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. sections 1-16. This arbitration agreement applies to all claims now in existence or that may arise in the future. Nothing in these General Terms will be construed to prevent any party’s use of (or advancement of any claims, defenses, or offsets in) bankruptcy or repossession, replevin, judicial foreclosure, or any other prejudgment or provisional remedy relating to any collateral, security, or other property interests for contractual debts now or hereafter owed by any party hereunder.
In the event that you, the Bank or PathPoint are not able to resolve a dispute with American Express, or a claim against PathPoint, the Bank or any other entity that American Express has a right to join, the terms and conditions set forth on Exhibit A will apply, and are fully incorporated herein by this reference.

17. Governing Law

The internal laws of the State of Utah (without reference to its conflict of laws rules) apply to these General Terms, subject to any modifying "Legal Requirements," defined following. "Legal Requirements" means each applicable law, ordinance, decree, requirement, order, judgment, rule, regulation, directive, circular, interpretive letter, guidance or other official release (or a related interpretation) of a government authority or a regulatory (including self-regulatory) organization to which a party and/or its affiliates is subject, including (a) all applicable anti-money laundering laws, rules and regulations, (b) "Know-Your-Customer" and sanctions laws, rules and regulations, (c) Federal Reserve Board regulations, and (d) tax regulations. All rights and remedies relating to these General Terms, Legal Requirements, the ACH Rules and the Card Network Rules are cumulative and do not exclude any other rights or remedies. The maximum amount of pre- and post-judgment interest in connection with any claim will be the lower of the prime rate and the rate set by the State of Utah.

18. Chargeback Management Portal

PathPoint provides Merchants with a Chargeback Management Portal tool (“CMP”), where a Merchant can view a dispute/chargeback notification sent to them from a Bank (e.g., Chase Bank). Within this CMP, for the convenience of the Merchant, we provide the Merchant with a means to challenge the dispute, or they can concede the dispute. If the Merchant chooses to challenge the dispute, they are required by the Bank to upload documents to support their position. If the Merchant does challenge the dispute, one of the required documents is a so-called, rebuttal letter. In the CMP, we provide the Merchant with a sample rebuttal letter to refer to when creating their own rebuttal letter. For purposes of clarification and the avoidance of doubt, the provision of the CMP is strictly for convenience and reference purposes only. Merchants are not required to use the provided CMP if they choose to dispute the chargeback – and in fact may only use the CMP, if they acknowledge and agree that PathPoint accepts no liability for any monetary or other damages, charges, fees, other costs, etc., associated with chargeback disputes, and/or the use of the CMP. Use of the CMP by the Merchant is deemed a Merchant’s voluntary acceptance of the consequences, liabilities and requirements set forth in this paragraph.

19. Limitation on Time to Initiate a Dispute

Any action or proceeding by you relating to any Dispute must commence within one year after the cause of action arises.

20. Assignment

Other than as specifically set forth herein, these General Terms, and any rights and licenses granted hereunder, may not be transferred or assigned by you and any attempted transfer or assignment will be null and void.

21. Intellectual Property Infringement

We respect the intellectual property rights of others and ask you to do the same. We have adopted an Intellectual Property Policy regarding third-party claims that your material infringes the rights of others. We respond to all valid notices of such infringement, and our policy is to suspend or terminate the accounts of repeat infringers.

22. Security

We have implemented technical and organizational measures designed to secure your personal information from accidental loss and from unauthorized access, use, alteration, or disclosure. However, we cannot guarantee that unauthorized third parties will never be able to defeat those measures or use your personal information for improper purposes. You provide your personal information hereunder, at your own risk.
You are responsible for safeguarding your password and for restricting access to the Services from your compatible mobile devices and computer(s). You agree to immediately notify us of any unauthorized use of your password or PathPoint Account or any other breach of security. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein, in the event of any dispute between two or more parties as to PathPoint Account ownership, we will be the sole arbiter of such dispute in our sole discretion. Our decision (which may include termination or suspension of any PathPoint Account subject to dispute) will be final and binding on all parties.

23. Privacy

When you process information that identifies or is reasonably capable of identifying an individual to PathPoint in connection with the Services (including information collected by PathPoint on your behalf), you agree to comply with applicable laws regarding the collection, use, disclosure, protection, and retention of this information. You acknowledge that you have reviewed and consent to PathPoint’s Privacy Notice, which explains our practices with regard to any personal information you provide to us. If you or your business are located in California, please see Section 27.

24. Communications

You consent to accept and receive Communications from us, including e-mail, text messages, calls, and push notifications to the cellular telephone number you provide to us when you sign-up for a PathPoint Account or update the contact information associated with your PathPoint Account. Such Communications may include, but are not limited to requests for secondary authentication, receipts, reminders, notifications regarding updates to your PathPoint Account or PathPoint Account support, and marketing or promotional Communications. You acknowledge that you are not required to consent to receive promotional texts or calls as a condition of using the Services. Call and text message Communications may be generated by automatic telephone dialing systems. Standard message and data rates applied by your cell phone carrier may apply to the text messages we send you.
You may opt-out of receiving promotional email Communications we send to you by following the unsubscribe options on such emails. You may opt out of any promotional phone calls by informing the caller that you would not like to receive future promotional calls. You may only opt-out of text messages from PathPoint by replying “STOP”. You acknowledge that opting out of receiving Communications may impact your use of the Services.

25. Revisions, Disclosures and Notices

We may amend the General Terms at any time with notice that we deem to be reasonable under the circumstances, by posting the revised version on our website or communicating it to you through the Services (each a “Revised Version”). The Revised Version will be effective as of the time it is posted, but will not apply retroactively. Your continued use of the Services after the posting of a Revised Version constitutes your acceptance of such Revised Version. Any Dispute that arose before the changes will be governed by the Terms in place when the Dispute arose.
You agree to PathPoint’s E-Sign Consent. We may provide disclosures and notices required by law and other information about your PathPoint Account to you electronically, by posting it on our website, pushing notifications through the Services, or by emailing it to the email address listed in your PathPoint Account. Electronic disclosures and notices have the same meaning and effect as if we had provided you with paper copies. Such disclosures and notices are considered received by you within twenty-four (24) hours of the time posted to our website, or within twenty-four (24) hours of the time emailed to you unless we receive notice that the email was not delivered. If you wish to withdraw your consent to receiving electronic communications, contact PathPoint Support. If we are not able to support your request, you may need to terminate your PathPoint Account.

26. Third Party Services and Links to Other Websites

You may be offered services, products and promotions provided by third parties and not by PathPoint, including, but not limited to, third party developers who use PathPoint’s services (“Third Party Services”). If you decide to use Third Party Services, you will be responsible for reviewing and understanding the terms and conditions for these services. We are not responsible or liable for the performance of any Third Party Services. Further, you agree to resolve any disagreement between you and a third party regarding the terms and conditions of any Third Party Services with that third party directly in accordance with the terms and conditions of that relationship, and not PathPoint. The Services may contain links to third party websites. The inclusion of any website link does not imply an approval, endorsement, or recommendation by PathPoint. Such third party websites are not governed by these General Terms. You access any such website at your own risk. We expressly disclaim any liability for these websites. When you use a link to go from the Services to a third party website, our Privacy Notice is no longer in effect. Your browsing and interaction on a third party website, including those that have a link in the Services is subject to that website’s own terms, rules and policies.

27. Third Party Beneficiaries

If you are a “Business” as defined by the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018, Cal. Civ. Code § 1798.100 et seq., (“CCPA”) then this provision 27 applies to you. For purposes of this Section 27, “process”, “sell”, and “business purpose(s)” have the meaning ascribed to them by the CCPA.
a) For purposes of this Section 27, “Purchaser Personal Information” means any information that identifies, relates to, describes, is reasonably capable of being associated with, or could reasonably be linked, directly or indirectly, with a particular consumer or household that is processed by PathPoint in connection with its Services to you. Purchaser Personal Information does not include information PathPoint receives about your customers (“Purchasers”) for purposes of PathPoint’s digital receipt, customer directory and email marketing tools (“PathPoint Purchaser Features”). It does include information that your Purchaser has provided you through PathPoint Appointments, PathPoint Invoices, or to receive loyalty-related or promotional text messages.
b) We may receive Personal Information from Purchasers for the purpose of performing Services on your behalf as described in these General Terms. We will process Purchaser Personal Information collected, processed, stored or transmitted by, or accessible to us in the course of these General Terms, and any other Additional Terms, only on your behalf, and for the purpose of providing you with the Services in these General Terms and other applicable terms linked above based on the products you use. We acknowledge that we are prohibited from: (i) selling the Purchaser Personal Information; (ii) retaining, using, or disclosing the Purchaser Personal Information for any purpose other than providing to you the Services specified in these General Terms(s), and other Additional Terms, if any. As part of, and for purposes of, facilitating the Services, PathPoint may (i) de-identify or aggregate the Purchaser Personal Information; and (ii) process the Purchaser Personal Information for operational purposes, including, without limitation, verifying or maintaining the quality and safety of the Services; improving, updating or enhancing the Services either for you or for our Purchasers generally; detecting and preventing fraud, and for protecting the security and integrity of our Services; and complying with our legal obligations. You acknowledge and agree that Purchaser Personal Information that you disclose to PathPoint is provided to PathPoint for the parties’ business purposes.
c) We reserve the right to delete Personal Information stored pursuant to these General Terms in the ordinary course of business, pursuant to our retention schedules.

29. Force Majeure

Neither we, nor the Bank, are liable to you for not carrying out, or delaying performance of, any actions caused by an act of God, a government authority, any Card Network, the ACH, a Legal Requirement, a catastrophe, war or terrorism, civil or labor disturbance, fire, flood, other natural disaster, epidemic, pandemic, or any other cause beyond our reasonable control.

30. Other Provisions

Except as expressly provided in these General Terms, these General Terms are a complete statement of the agreement between you and PathPoint, and they describe the entire liability of PathPoint and the Bank and your exclusive remedy with respect to your access and use of the Services. In the event of a conflict between the General Terms and any other PathPoint agreement or policy, the General Terms will prevail. If any provision of these General Terms is invalid or unenforceable under applicable law, then it will be changed and interpreted to accomplish the objectives of such provision to the greatest extent possible under applicable law, and the remaining provisions will continue in full force and effect; provided, however, that if such modification materially harms the interests of PathPoint, PathPoint may terminate without any further obligation or liability to you. Headings are included for convenience only, and will not be considered in interpreting this Agreement. These General Terms do not limit any rights that PathPoint may have under trade secret, copyright, patent or other laws. PathPoint's failure to assert any right or provision under these General Terms will not constitute a waiver of such right or provision. No waiver of any term of these General Terms will be deemed a further or continuing waiver of such term or any other term.

31. Survival

Any provision that is reasonably necessary to accomplish or enforce the purpose of these General Terms will survive and remain in effect in accordance with its terms upon the termination of these General Terms.
