The End User
Services are provided "as-is" without any representation or warranty, either express or implied, including but not limited to, implied warranties of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, title, and non-infringement. We, our affiliates, agents, contractors, and business users (collectively referred to as "Disclaiming Entities") do not guarantee or warrant that the End User Services will be error-free, secure or uninterrupted.
The Disclaiming Entities have no control over the products or services provided by third parties through the End User Services. We do not guarantee or imply that the products or services purchased using the End User Services will work as intended or are safe to use.
Some laws prohibit or limit disclaimers of the warranties referenced in this section or impose obligations on us that cannot be waived by these Terms. In such cases, this section will apply to the maximum extent permitted by law.
Please read this section carefully as it outlines the extent of our liability and the types of damages you can seek from us. In the event of any damages arising from the End User Services, we will not be liable for more than $200.
We will not be liable for any failure to perform our obligations under these Terms due to abnormal or unforeseeable events outside our reasonable control. These events include, but are not limited to, acts of terrorism, weather-related events, labor conditions, internet disturbances, or pandemics.
Furthermore, we will not be liable to you for any failure to perform our obligations under these Terms that would have resulted in our violation of applicable law. We will not be liable in any circumstances for any loss of business, goodwill, opportunity, or profit that we could not have reasonably anticipated. Subject to the specific product terms outlined below, our liability arising out of or in connection with these Terms will not exceed $200 USD.

If you have a complaint or dispute, we encourage you to contact us first. If you reside in the United States, any claim or dispute arising out of these Terms will be governed by California law, regardless of conflict of law principles. Both parties submit to exclusive personal jurisdiction and will bring all suits and actions under or in connection with these Terms exclusively in the federal courts of the Northern District of California and the state courts located in San Mateo County, California. If you reside outside the United States, the governing law is specified elsewhere.
The End User Services may provide access to or the ability to purchase products and services from businesses or persons unrelated to us. Such entities may have their own terms that you must read. As we do not control these businesses or individuals, we will not be responsible if any issues arise with their products or services.
Our End User Services allow you to purchase products or services from people, businesses, or entities that are not Stripe entities, employees, or agents.
You are responsible for any purchases you make, and any Business Users you choose to engage with are responsible for providing you with the goods or services you purchase. If you are not satisfied with your purchase, or if you wish to return, refund, or exchange your purchase, or if you have any questions or issues regarding your purchase, please contact the Business User. While we may display or link to Business Users' terms or policies with respect to returns, refunds, and exchanges, we are not responsible for their goods and services. The Business Users determine the content of those terms and policies, and we do not control or have any responsibility for their compliance with their terms and policies. If you believe that a Business User has not complied with its terms or policies, or any other obligation imposed by law, please contact the Business User directly.
To the fullest extent allowable under the law, we will not be responsible or liable for any loss you suffer in connection with your purchase or use of any third-party products or services.
Assignment and Third-Party Beneficiaries
You must not allow anyone else to take on your obligations under these Terms. We may allow a third party, including an affiliate, to enforce or assume our rights and obligations under these Terms, but only if that third party can competently perform these Terms.

We offer an End User Service that allows you to create a Link account or save your payment information for faster checkout at businesses that use our services. By using our End User Service, you agree to our Link Account Terms and the End User Terms of Service stated above.
When you allow us to remember your payment details, we will store your identifying information, such as your email address or mobile phone number (known as “Log-In Credentials”), and payment information like credit card, debit card, or bank account numbers (known as “Payment Account Details”). In addition, we may also store other payment information like your name, billing address, and shipping address. The benefit of this is that you can pay more easily and quickly with the same business user, as well as other eligible business users that we support - this is especially helpful when you’re on a mobile device or don’t have your payment details in front of you.
You can only save Payment Account Details with us that you have the authority to use. This doesn’t alter your relationship with the business user. Also, your relationship with your payment method provider (for example, your bank or credit card company) remains unchanged. Removing a payment method from your Link account does not affect any outstanding obligations or amounts owed to a business user.
Debit and credit card payment methods
Please keep your payment card information up to date. We may update your saved payment card details automatically, based on proprietary and third-party sources available to us.
