The Services are provided to you by Money App to allow you to organize and manage your finances. Subject to your compliance with these Terms, Money App hereby grants you a limited, revocable, non-exclusive, non-transferable license to download the Mobile App and access and use the Website and Services, solely for your personal use and not for resale.

To use the Services, you must direct Money App to retrieve your account transaction history, balance information, and/or other information maintained by third parties with which you have relationships, maintain accounts, or engage in financial transactions (“Third-Party Account Information”). Money App works with one or more third-party service providers, such as Plaid and Finicity, to access this Third-Party Account Information. We will use this information to provide you with the Services you request and for our own internal business purposes as outlined herein.
By using the Services, you authorize Money App to access the information maintained by identified third parties, on your behalf as your agent and representative, and you expressly authorize such third parties to disclose Third-Party Account Information to us. By consenting to this Agreement, you are also agreeing that you are responsible for securing any passwords and usernames you provide to us so we can retrieve this Third-Party Account Information, and for updating those passwords and usernames in the Mobile App to reflect any changes in such passwords and usernames.

Money App may from time to time provide automatic alerts and voluntary account-related alerts. Automatic alerts may be sent to you following certain changes to your account or information, such as activity in your accounts or information related to your Third-Party Account Information.
Voluntary account alerts may be turned on by default as part of the Services. They may then be customized, deactivated, or reactivated by you. You may choose via the Mobile App which kinds of alerts to receive. Money App may add new alerts from time to time or cease to provide certain alerts at any time in its sole discretion. Each alert may have different options available, and you may be asked to select from among these options upon activation of your alerts service.
You understand and agree that any alerts provided to you through the Services may be delayed or prevented by a variety of factors. Money App cannot guarantee the delivery, timeliness, or accuracy of the content of any alert.

Electronic alerts may be sent to you via the Mobile App or at the email address or mobile number related to your Money App Account. If your email address or your mobile number changes, you are responsible for informing us of that change in the Mobile App. Alerts may also be sent to a mobile device that accepts text messages. Changes to your email address and mobile number will apply to all of your alerts.
Because alerts are not encrypted, we will never include your passwords in such alerts. However, alerts may include your Login ID and some information about your accounts. Depending upon which alerts you select, such information may include, without limitation, your account balances or payment due dates. Anyone with access to your email account or mobile device may be able to view the content of these alerts. You may disable alerts at any time.

ACCORDINGLY, SOME OF THE ABOVE LIMITATIONS SET FORTH ABOVE MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU. IF YOU ARE DISSATISFIED WITH ANY PORTION OF THE MOBILE APP, WEBSITE, OR THE SERVICES OR WITH THIS AGREEMENT, YOUR SOLE AND EXCLUSIVE REMEDY IS TO DISCONTINUE USE OF OUR SERVICES.
To the fullest extent permitted by law, you agree to indemnify, defend and hold harmless Money App from and against any and all claims, losses, expenses, demands or liabilities, including reasonable attorneys’ fees arising out of or relating to (a) your access to, use of or alleged use of the Mobile App, Website, or the Services; (b) your violation of this Agreement or any representation, warranty, or agreements referenced herein, or any applicable law or regulation; (c) your violation of any third-party right, including without limitation any intellectual property right, publicity, confidentiality, property or privacy right; or (d) any disputes or issues between you and any third party.

19. Dispute Resolution by Binding Arbitration
YOU MUST READ THIS PROVISION CAREFULLY AND UNDERSTAND THAT IT LIMITS YOUR RIGHTS IN THE EVENT OF A DISPUTE BETWEEN YOU AND Money App. YOU UNDERSTAND THAT YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO OPT OUT OF THIS PROVISION AS PROVIDED IN SECTION 19(c) BELOW.
- Election to Arbitrate.
You and Money App agree that the sole and exclusive forum and remedy for resolution of any legal claim (“Claim”) arising out of this relationship or otherwise be a final and binding arbitration pursuant to this Section 19 (the “Arbitration Provision”), unless you opt out as provided in Section 19(c) below. As used in this Arbitration Provision, Claim shall include any past, present, or future claim, dispute, or controversy involving you (or persons claiming through or connected with you), on the one hand, and us on the other hand, relating to or arising out of this Agreement, and/or the activities or relationships that involve, lead to, or result from this Agreement, including (except to the extent provided otherwise in the last sentence of Section 19(h) below) the validity or enforceability of this Arbitration Provision, any part thereof, or the entire Agreement. Claims are subject to arbitration regardless of whether they arise from contract; tort (intentional or otherwise); a constitution, statute, common law, or principles of equity; or otherwise. Claims include matters arising as initial claims, counter‐claims, cross-claims, third-party claims, or otherwise. Please note that you may continue to assert Claims in small claims court, if your Claims qualify and so long as the matter remains in such court and advances only on an individual (non-class, non-representative) basis. The scope of this Arbitration Provision is to be given the broadest possible interpretation that is enforceable.
- Applicability of the Federal Arbitration Act; Arbitrator’s Powers.
This Arbitration Provision is made pursuant to a transaction involving interstate commerce and shall be governed by and enforceable under the Federal Arbitration Act (the “FAA”). The arbitrator will apply substantive law consistent with the FAA and applicable statutes of limitations. The arbitrator may award damages or other types of relief permitted by applicable substantive law, subject to the limitations set forth in this Arbitration Provision. The arbitrator will not be bound by judicial rules of procedure and evidence that would apply in a court. The arbitrator shall take steps to reasonably protect confidential information.
- Opt-Out of Arbitration Provision.
You may opt-out of this Arbitration Provision for all purposes by sending an arbitration opt out notice to email@example.com within 60 days of the date of your electronic acceptance of the terms of this Agreement. The opt-out notice must clearly state that you are rejecting arbitration; identify the Agreement to which it applies by date; provide your name, address, and social security number; and be signed by you. You may send an opt-out notice in any manner you see fit as long as it is received at the specified address within the specified time. No other methods can be used to opt out of this Arbitration Provision. If the opt-out notice is sent on your behalf by a third party, such third party must include evidence of his or her authority to submit the opt out notice on your behalf.
- Informal Dispute Resolution.
If a Claim arises, our goal is to learn about and address your concerns and, if we are unable to do so to your satisfaction, to provide you with a neutral and cost-effective means of resolving the dispute quickly. You agree that before filing any claim in arbitration, you may submit Claims by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org at any time.
- Arbitration Procedures.
The party initiating arbitration shall do so with the American Arbitration Association (the “AAA”) or Judicial Alternatives and Mediation Services (“JAMS”). The arbitration shall be conducted according to, and the location of the arbitration shall be determined in accordance with, the rules and policies of the administrator selected, except to the extent the rules conflict with this Arbitration Provision or any countervailing law. If you have any questions concerning the AAA or would like to obtain a copy of the AAA arbitration rules, you may call 1-(800) 778-7879 or visit the AAA's web site at: www.adr.org. If you have any questions concerning JAMS or would like to obtain a copy of the JAMS arbitration rules, you may call 1-(800) 352-5267 or visit their website at: www.jamsadr.com. In the case of a conflict between the rules and policies of the administrator and this Arbitration Provision, this Arbitration Provision shall control, subject to countervailing law, unless all parties to the arbitration consent to have the rules and policies of the administrator apply. With respect to all disputes arising in relation to this Agreement, but subject to the preceding Arbitration Provision, the parties consent to exclusive jurisdiction and venue in the state and federal courts located in Los Angeles, California.
- Arbitration Fees.
If we elect arbitration, we shall pay all the administrator's filing costs and administrative fees (other than hearing fees). If you elect arbitration, filing costs and administrative fees (other than hearing fees) shall be paid in accordance with the rules of the administrator selected, or in accordance with countervailing law if contrary to the administrator's rules. We shall pay the administrator's hearing fees for one full day of arbitration hearings. Fees for hearings that exceed one day will be paid by the party requesting the hearing, unless the administrator's rules or applicable law require otherwise, or you request that we pay them, and we agree to do so. Each party shall bear the expense of its own attorneys' fees, except as otherwise provided by law. If a statute gives you the right to recover any of these fees, these statutory rights shall apply in the arbitration notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein.
Within 30 days of a final award by the arbitrator, any party may appeal the award for reconsideration by a three-arbitrator panel selected according to the rules of the arbitrator administrator. In the event of such an appeal, any opposing party may cross-appeal within 30 days after notice of the appeal. The panel will reconsider de novo all aspects of the initial award that are appealed. Costs and conduct of any appeal shall be governed by this Arbitration Provision and the administrator's rules, in the same way as the initial arbitration proceeding. Any award by the individual arbitrator that is not subject to appeal, and any panel award on appeal, shall be final and binding, except for any appeal right under the FAA, and may be entered as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction.
- No Class Actions.
NO ARBITRATION SHALL PROCEED ON A CLASS, REPRESENTATIVE, OR COLLECTIVE BASIS (INCLUDING AS PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL ON BEHALF OF OTHERS), EVEN IF THE CLAIM OR CLAIMS THAT ARE THE SUBJECT OF THE ARBITRATION HAD PREVIOUSLY BEEN ASSERTED (OR COULD HAVE BEEN ASSERTED) IN A COURT AS CLASS REPRESENTATIVE, OR COLLECTIVE ACTIONS IN A COURT. Unless consented to in writing by all parties to the arbitration, no party to the arbitration may join, consolidate, or otherwise bring claims for or on behalf of two or more individuals or unrelated corporate entities in the same arbitration unless those persons are parties to a single transaction. Unless consented to in writing by all parties to the arbitration, an award in arbitration shall determine the rights and obligations of the named parties only, and only with respect to the claims in arbitration, and shall not (a) determine the rights, obligations, or interests of anyone other than a named party, or resolve any Claim of anyone other than a named party; nor (b) make an award for the benefit of, or against, anyone other than a named party. No administrator or arbitrator shall have the power or authority to waive, modify, or fail to enforce this Section 19(h), and any attempt to do so, whether by rule, policy, arbitration decision or otherwise, shall be invalid and unenforceable. Any challenge to the validity of this Section 19(h) shall be determined exclusively by a court and not by the administrator or any arbitrator.
- Survival and Severability of Arbitration Provision.
This Arbitration Provision shall survive the termination of this Agreement. If any portion of this Arbitration Provision other than Section 19(h) is deemed invalid or unenforceable, the remaining portions of this Arbitration Provision shall nevertheless remain valid and in force. If there is a final judicial determination that applicable law precludes enforcement of this Arbitration Provision’s limitations as to a particular claim for relief or particular term, then that claim (and only that claim) or that term (and only that term) must be severed from the Arbitration Provision and may be brought in court. If an arbitration is brought on a class, representative, or collective basis, and the limitations on such proceedings in Section 19(h) are finally adjudicated pursuant to the last sentence of Section 19(h) to be unenforceable, then no arbitration shall be had. In no event shall any invalidation be deemed to authorize an arbitrator to determine Claims or make awards beyond those authorized in this Arbitration Provision.
- Judicial Forum for Claims.
Except as otherwise required by applicable law, in the event that this Arbitration Provision is found not to apply to you or your Claim, you and Money App agree that any judicial proceeding (other than small claims actions) will be brought in the federal or state courts of Los Angeles County, California. Both you and Money App consent to venue and personal jurisdiction there and agree to waive any of respective rights to a jury trial.
- Waiver of Right to Litigate.
THE PARTIES ACKNOWLEDGE THAT THEY HAVE A RIGHT TO LITIGATE CLAIMS THROUGH A COURT BEFORE A JUDGE OR JURY BUT WILL NOT HAVE THAT RIGHT IF ANY PARTY ELECTS ARBITRATION PURSUANT TO THIS ARBITRATION PROVISION. THE PARTIES HEREBY KNOWINGLY AND VOLUNTARILY WAIVE THEIR RIGHTS TO LITIGATE SUCH CLAIMS IN A COURT BEFORE A JUDGE OR JURY UPON ELECTION OF ARBITRATION BY ANY PARTY.
20. Governing Law and Venue
Except for Section 19 which is governed by the FAA, this Agreement and all Claims are governed by the laws of the State of California, without regard to conflict-of-law rules.
If any provision of this Agreement is found to be invalid, unlawful, void, or unenforceable by either an arbitrator or a court of competent jurisdiction, this Agreement’s remaining provisions shall be enforced to the fullest extent possible, and the remaining provisions of the Agreement shall remain in full force and effect.
You agree that if Money App does not enforce any of its legal rights or remedies under this Agreement, or other legal rights or remedies Money App has under applicable laws, this shall not be construed as a formal waiver of those rights or remedies or any other rights in any way whatsoever.
