Agreement to use PayThankYou and ProPay Services: Terms and Use
I understand when I register our/my DDO, that PayThankYou, (hereinafter, "PTY") is a service provider and ProPay will be our credit card processor. As a DDO, I understand PTY sends our account setup information to ProPay. If our account is approved by ProPay, ProPay will send me an email with my username and temporary password, and that I will need to update my password through http://www.propay.com. I understand our account will still need to be approved by PTY. I understand if our account is not approved by PTY, it is my responsibility to contact ProPay to close our account with ProPay, if we choose to close the account. I further understand I will need to request a refund of my $5 ProPay annual fee from ProPay and that PTY cannot assist me in such request. I further understand we will be provided a preset $10,000 monthly credit card transaction volume, and if we need a larger monthly volume, it is my responsibility to contact ProPay if they do not contact me within 5 business days after account approval.
I understand there is no cost to use PTY services. I understand ProPay imposes the following fees and that ProPay will automatically deduct from our ProPay account the refund transaction fee, $.10 (ten cents); transfer to bank fee, $.10 (ten cents); and chargeback fee, $25, if such fee occurs. I also understand ProPay charges our organization a $5 annual fee for each year we use the service.
You authorize ProPay with respect to the PTY services to act as your agent for the limited purposes of holding, receiving, and disbursing funds on your behalf. Your authorization permits ProPay to generate an electronic funds transfer to process each payment transaction. This authorization will continue until your ProPay account is closed or terminated. You agree that ProPay’s receipt of transaction proceeds satisfies your customers’ obligations to you. ProPay will remit to you funds actually received by ProPay on your behalf, less amounts owed to ProPay, subject to any chargebacks or reserve withheld or applied as per this agreement.
I understand that PTY does not and cannot verify some of the information I provide during registration, such as Social Security Number (SSN), bank account numbers, and credit card information. I further agree that PTY has no responsibility and takes no responsibility for any information I provide that is inaccurate or in error. I understand information I provide such as SSN, bank account numbers and credit card information is encrypted and passed through to ProPay, and PTY does not see or store any of this information. I further agree it is my responsibility to verify all our information with ProPay once I am given a ProPay account. I understand I can verify our information by logging in to our ProPay account, clicking on “My Account”, then “My Profile” and clicking on appropriate links.
Reports provided by PTY are for your assistance in money collection during a fundraising event, membership dues collection, or similar activity. The intent of the report provided to you through the PTY site is to make this process easier. I understand that this report does not and cannot include all the activity that is processed through our ProPay account. I understand and further agree that our ProPay reports are the definitive reports when it comes to our transactions and funds available. I understand PTY’s reports do not contain any information in regard to refunds, credits, chargebacks (if any), transactions not made through the PTY website, or ProPay fees.
During the payment process, supporters using the PayThankYou service will see a separate line on the payment screen that shows the Service Fee. I understand this service fee is paid by our supporters and that a portion of this Service Fee is paid to PTY from ProPay, and our organization will receive the payment balance through ProPay. PTY reserves the right to raise or lower this service fee, with or without notification, as PTY determines necessary. I understand payments to our organization will be made to our account according to the terms established by ProPay. I further understand the Service Fee is not refundable, even if the payment to which it relates is cancelled, refunded, credited or charged back.
I understand our organization is responsible for the collection and payment of any sales or use tax due to state, local, or city government for any funds received by our organization through the PTY platform, if such tax is to be collected and paid. I further understand that PTY and ProPay have no legal or other obligation for collection or payment of such taxes on our behalf.
I understand information we receive from PTY and ProPay may be considered personally identifiable information (PII) and we will keep this information secure. I further agree that I and our organization will not sell, lease, or rent any information provided to us by PTY or ProPay to any person or organization. We further agree not to share any information with any individual or organization unless it is to perform duties within the constraints and nature of this service and our fundraising activity.
I agree to keep our organization account and login information private and shall only reveal the username and password and information contained within reports provided to us by PTY or ProPay to those within our organization legally entitled to view it. Our organization understands it is our obligation to keep this information private and safe. WE AGREE TO HOLD PTY AND PROPAY HARMLESS FOR ANY BREACH OF CONFIDENTIALITY OF INFORMATION CAUSED ON OUR BEHALF.
I further understand all information provided to PTY in this application may or will be provided to ProPay to verify and set up our account. I authorize ProPay to share with PTY information relating to our account, including but not limited to transaction details and business or personal information if such information is needed to perform the services provided by PayThankYou and ProPay.
As a supporter or a DDO, I agree I or my DDO will not infringe PTY's copyright, patent, trademark, trade secrets or other intellectual property rights, or rights of publicity or privacy. I acknowledge that all rights, title, license, and interest to PTY’s software are owned by PTY. I agree that my DDO or I will not disclose to any other party or entity any proprietary information revealed to my organization during the use of the PTY platform. I acknowledge we may not transfer or assign any rights or obligations we have under this agreement without PTY's prior written consent. PTY may transfer or assign this user agreement or any right or obligation under this user agreement at any time.
As a supporter or a DDO, I UNDERSTAND THERE IS ALWAYS A RISK OF PROVIDING INFORMATION OVER THE INTERNET AND HOLD PTY HARMLESS FOR ANY DAMAGE THAT COULD OCCUR IF INFORMATION IS LOST OR STOLEN. I understand that PTY does not store credit card numbers, Social Security Numbers, or bank information, and that this information is stored and secured by ProPay. ProPay meets all PCI DSS compliance requirements. I understand our DDO will not receive or have access to our supporters’ credit card information. I agree to keep all private information provided by our DDO to PTY and ProPay secure, as well as any private information provided to us by PTY and ProPay.
As a supporter or a DDO, I further understand I or our DDO will be liable for and indemnify, defend, and hold harmless PTY and their respective employees, officers, directors, and agents against all claims, including claims made by third parties such as, but not limited to, our supporters for losses, damages, liabilities or expenses arising out of this Agreement and for all reasonable attorneys’ fees and other costs and expenses paid or incurred by PayThankYou in the enforcement of the Agreement, including those resulting from any transactions processed under the Agreement or any breach by our DDO of the Agreement.
In no event will PTY have any liability to supporters, to you, or your DDO, or any third party for any lost opportunity or profits, injury to any relationship, incidental, consequential, punitive or special damage, under any cause of action or theory of liability (including negligence), whether or not PTY has been advised of the possibility of such damage. These limitations will apply notwithstanding any failure of essential purpose of any limited remedy. PTY assumes no liability or responsibility for any errors or omissions in the content contained on this site.

EACH PARTY ACKNOWLEDGES THAT IT HAS NOT ENTERED INTO THIS AGREEMENT IN RELIANCE UPON ANY WARRANTY OR REPRESENTATION EXCEPT THOSE SPECIFICALLY SET FORTH HEREIN.
I understand we may cancel PTY services at any time without penalty. I further understand cancelling PTY services does not cancel our ProPay account, and I must cancel the ProPay account separately, and I must do so according to the terms set by ProPay.
