SOLID PROGRAM TERMS OF SERVICE - CONSUMER
Effective April 5, 2023
Welcome to solidfi.app (the “Site”), a website of Solid Financial Technologies, Inc., a Delaware corporation (“Solid” “we,” or “us”). This page explains the terms by which you may use the financial services we make available to you on our Site or on our mobile application (collectively the “Services”).
“You” means the individual that is applying for or that has opened an Account to use the Services.
PLEASE READ THIS AGREEMENT CAREFULLY TO ENSURE THAT YOU UNDERSTAND EACH PROVISION. THIS AGREEMENT CONTAINS A MANDATORY INDIVIDUAL ARBITRATION AND CLASS ACTION/JURY TRIAL WAIVER PROVISION THAT REQUIRES THE USE OF ARBITRATION ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS TO RESOLVE DISPUTES, RATHER THAN JURY TRIALS OR CLASS ACTIONS.
1. Scope of the Services; Use of the Services; Eligibility
A. Eligibility. This is a contract between you and Solid. You must read and agree to these terms before using the Services. If you do not agree, you may not apply for an Account or use the Services. You may only apply for an Account or use the Services for personal purposes. By applying for an Account or using the Services you are forming a binding contract with Solid in compliance with this Agreement and all applicable local, state, national, and international laws, rules and regulations. There may be other eligibility requirements applicable to specific Services.
B. Scope of the Services. Your Account gives you access to various Services, including the demand deposit account (“Deposit Account”), the Solid Credit Card, and other services as made available from time-to-time by Solid and by our sponsor banks (our “Banking Services Provider”), and any other functionality that we may establish and maintain from time to time and in our sole discretion.
C. Applying for an Account. You will need to provide personal information (“Personal Information”), when you apply for an Account for personal purposes. Personal Information may include your name, contact information, date of birth and certain other personal information; proof of address, personal identification, and any other documentary information used to verify your personal information. We provide Personal Information to our Banking Services Provider and other third-party service providers to determine your eligibility for the Services. We rely on the accuracy of the Personal Information you provide us when opening and maintaining your Account. We may deny your applications, suspend provision of the Services to you, or close your Account if Personal Information is out of date, incomplete, or inaccurate. At any time during the term of this Agreement and as part of your use of the Services, we may require additional Personal Information from you to verify your identity, to open and maintain accounts and aspects of the Services, and to assess your financial condition. You expressly consent and authorize us to retrieve additional Personal Information about you from our vendors and other third parties solely to assess the history and risks and to prevent fraud, including by obtaining information from credit reporting agencies and information bureaus, and you authorize and direct such third parties to compile and provide such information to us. You acknowledge that this may include names, addresses, credit history, and other data. You acknowledge that we may use Personal Information to verify any other information you provide to us, and that any information we collect may affect our assessment of your overall risk to our business.
D. Account Management and Security. You are solely responsible for the activity that occurs on your Account, and you must keep your Account password secure. We encourage you to use “strong” passwords (for recommendations on what constitutes a strong password, check NIST SP 800-63B) with your Account. You must notify Solid immediately of any breach of security or unauthorized use of your Account. Solid will not be liable for any losses caused by any unauthorized use of your Account. We may suspend access to your Account if we believe that your Account has been compromised.
E. Prohibitions. You may not use the Account or the Services (a) for any purpose that is unlawful or prohibited by this Agreement; (b) business purposes; (c) for the benefit of an individual, organization, or country identified on the United States Office of Foreign Assets Control’s Specially Designated Nationals List.
F. Acceptable Use. By registering for and using the Services, you are confirming that you will not use the Services (i) to accept payments in connection with any illegal, unauthorized, or not bona fide transactions; (ii) to handle, process, or transmit funds for any third party.
We may, at any time and without notice, suspend or terminate your Account or your access to any of the Services if you engage in activities that violate the letter or spirit of this section. Our determination of whether a violation of this section has occurred will be final and binding, and any action taken with respect to enforcing this section will be at our sole discretion. Solid may modify this section at any time by posting a revised version in this Agreement.
2. The Solid Services
A. Deposit Account. Your Deposit Account is a demand deposit account held with our Banking Services Provider and is subject to the terms of this Agreement and the additional terms of our Banking Services Provider. Your funds are fully insured by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation up to $250,000. Your Deposit Account will be used in connection with the provision of the other Services under this Agreement. You may also use your Deposit Account to the extent provided in the terms of our Banking Services Provider.
B. Solid Virtual and Physical Cards.
Your Solid Account gives you access to virtual and physical cards (the “Solid Credit Card” or “Solid Credit Cards”) that you can use to make purchases for yourself using funds in your Solid Deposit Account. Your Solid Credit Card must only be used for any non-business purpose, such as for personal or household purchases, when issued in conjunction with your Account.
(i) Requesting and Receiving Solid Credit Cards. When you sign up for a Solid Deposit Account, you will be issued one physical Solid Card.
(ii) Spending Limits, Payments, and Refunds. Spending on your Solid Credit Card(s) is limited by the available funds in your Deposit Account. Your Solid Credit Card transactions will be settled as they occur by debiting your Solid Deposit Account an amount equal to each Solid Credit Card transaction. Refunds to your Solid Credit Card will be applied to your Solid Deposit Account. If you use your Solid Card for preauthorized, recurring, or subscription payments, you should regularly monitor the available funds in your Deposit Account to ensure that funds are available to make those payments. If funds are not available at the time a preauthorized, recurring or subscription payment is attempted on your Solid Credit Card, the transaction will ordinarily be declined. We will generally decline transactions attempted on your Solid Card that would overdraw your Deposit Account. If, however, we do not decline a transaction and that transaction does overdraw your account, we may limit your ability to use other features or spend additional funds from your Deposit Account until your Deposit Account has a positive balance and the transaction that has overdrawn your account has been paid. For more information related to the manner in which your Solid Credit Card transactions are debited and settled, refer to the Solid Account Agreement.
(iii) Disputes. If you have a dispute about a purchase on your Solid Credit Card that you cannot resolve with the merchant directly (a “Disputed Charge”), please contact us at email@example.com as soon as possible, and in all cases within 60 days of the charge. We cannot help you with Disputed Charges you report to us more than 60 days after the charge appears on your account. Disputed Charges will remain debited from your Deposit Account while we determine the outcome of the dispute. We will resolve all disputes in a commercially reasonable timeframe. If we determine you should be reimbursed, we will credit the amount of the Disputed Charge back to your Deposit Account and you will not be charged any fees. If we determine that the Disputed Charge was valid, your Deposit Account will not be reimbursed, and you will be charged a fee as set forth in the Fee Schedule. You assign and transfer to us any rights and claims, excluding tort claims, that you have against a merchant for any Disputed Charge that is fully or partially credited to your Deposit Account. We may assign and transfer the rights you assign and transfer to us under this provision to the Solid Credit Card Issuer.
(iv) Records, Fees, and Communication. All transaction records and periodic statements may be found in your dashboard for your Account. All fees associated with the Solid Credit Cards may be found in the Fee Schedule.
(v) Other Solid Credit Card Terms. Solid Credit Cards are issued by CBW Bank (the “Issuer.”) You agree to the applicable CBW Bank terms and conditions. You agree that any future changes to the relevant CBW Bank terms and conditions will apply to your Solid Card, whether or not Solid or CBW Bank alerts you to those changes to the CBW Bank terms and conditions.
C. Mobile Remote Deposit Capture. You may remotely deposit paper checks into your Deposit Account through the Solid app by creating a Mobile Deposit. When making a Mobile Deposit, you are also subject to the deposit account agreement and other terms and conditions of the Banking Services Provider that enables the Deposit Account and Mobile Deposit, including the Funds Availability Disclosure section of those terms. A “Mobile Deposit” is the information that is transmitted to us allowing for the deposit, processing, and collection of the item deposited. You may only deposit items made payable to you. We reserve the right to reject any Mobile Deposit for any reason.
(i) Depositing your Check. You are responsible for creating an accurate Mobile Deposit. To deposit your check, you must endorse the check, enter the correct amount of the check (you are liable for any errors you make during the deposit process), create a check image using the camera on your mobile device to take a picture of the front and back of your check. You may only deposit eligible items through the mobile remote deposit capture service. To mitigate the risk of fraud or the presentment of duplicate items, you agree to mark on the original paper check that the item has been deposited electronically. You also agree to retain all checks deposited via mobile remote deposit capture for at least two business days after the deposit is made and to destroy all deposited checks as soon as reasonably possible, and in no event later than 30 days after the deposit.
(ii) Returned Items. You acknowledge and agree that we may charge you any fees associated with a returned item if a check is returned to us for any reason.
(iii) Representations and Warranties. In addition to any other representations and warranties applicable to your Deposit Account, with respect to each Mobile Deposit, you make any representation or warranty that would have applied had you deposited the original paper check. This includes representations and warranties we make on your behalf when we transfer, present, or originate the Mobile Deposit created from your check image. These representations and warranties include but are not limited to, that: (a) the transmissions contain accurate images of the front and back of the original checks; (b) the transmissions contain all necessary endorsements; and (c) no depository bank, drawee, drawer, or endorser will be asked to make a payment based on an item that it has already paid.
D. Digital Checks. You may send digital checks to payees from your Deposit Account. Payees will be able to print the digital check or present the digital check via email or other electronic means to the payee’s bank for deposit. By creating and authorizing the issuance of a digital check or remotely created check (“RCC”), you authorize Solid to honor the RCC in the amount and to the payee stated on the RCC even though the RCCs do not contain your signature. You authorize Solid to debit your Account for any claim or return based upon an unauthorized RCC and you agree to indemnify and hold Solid harmless from and against any claims, liabilities, costs and expenses (including attorney’s fees) resulting directly or indirectly from any breach of the foregoing warranty.
3. Fees and Payment.
A. Payment Method. You must keep a valid payment method on file with us to pay for all fees owed. We will debit fees from your Deposit Account or another payment method that you authorize. Solid will charge the payment method that you authorize for all applicable fees until the Services are terminated, and any and all outstanding fees have been paid in full. If we are unable to process payment of fees using your payment method on file, we will make a second attempt to process the payment using the payment method on file within three (3) days. If the second attempt is not successful, we will notify you, and may suspend and revoke access to the Services. If the Services are suspended, your Services will be reactivated upon payment of any amounts owed. If the outstanding fees remain unpaid for sixty (60) days following the date of suspension, then Wise reserves the right to terminate your Account. You may change your payment method through your account settings.
B. Applicable Fees. Your use of the Services is subject to the fees on the Fee Schedule, which may be updated from time-to-time at our discretion. For fees owed under this Agreement, we will automatically charge you using the payment method you have on file with us and by agreeing to this Agreement, you authorize us to do this. You will be charged via invoice each month on your billing date (“Billing Date”) for all outstanding fees that have not previously been charged or collected. All fees are exclusive of applicable taxes. You are responsible for all applicable taxes that arise from or as a result of your use of the Services.
C. Collection and Right to Set-Off. You agree to pay all amounts owed to us on demand. Your failure to pay amounts owed to us under this Agreement is a breach and you will be liable for any costs we incur during collection in addition to the amount you owe. Collection costs may include attorneys’ fees, costs of arbitration or court proceeding, collection agency fees, any applicable interest, and any other related cost. We may collect amounts you owe to us under this Agreement by deducting any amounts you owe to use from your Deposit Account. You grant us a security interest in and right to set off against the Deposit Account.
