5.3 Program Description. The Business Account is an account made available to the Business Account Owner to facilitate the issuance and use of Cards by Authorized Users for commercial business purposes. Each Card Account is a notional sub-account of the Business Account that will enable the Business Account Owner to track the balance of funds allocated to the Card linked to such Card Account. The Card allows Authorized Users to access funds allocated to the Card by the Business Administrator. Neither the Business Account nor a Card Account constitutes a checking or savings account. The Card is not a gift card, nor is it intended to be used for gifting purposes. The Card is not a credit card. Business Account Owner will not receive any interest on the funds in the Business Account or any Card Account. The Card will remain the property of the Bank and must be surrendered upon demand. The Card cannot be redeemed for cash. The Card is nontransferable and may be canceled or revoked at any time without prior notice except as required by law. The Bank may, in its sole discretion, limit the number of Cards that may be issued on behalf of the Business Account Owner. The Business Administrator shall have full power and agrees to administer the Business Account and each Card Account only as described in this Agreement and as duly authorized by the Business Account Owner. The Business Administrator will be authorized to limit or restrict the activity on all Cards with or without the consent of any Authorized User. The Business Administrator will also be authorized to make changes to the Card Account with or without the consent of any Authorized User. The Business Account Owner is the owner of all funds in the Business Account and allocated to any Card Account at all times and each Authorized User agrees that the Card shall only be used as authorized by the Business Account Owner. Business Account Owner acknowledges and agrees that the value available in the Business Account and any Card Account is limited to the funds that have been added to the Business Account or allocated to any Card Account pursuant to these Terms. The funds in the Business Account and associated with any Card Accounts are insured by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (“FDI ”) for up to the maximum amount as published by the FDIC.
5.4 Funding of the Business Account. Subject to the limitations set forth in this Agreement, Business Administrator may only add funds to the Business Account as described in this Section 5.4. Business Administrator may not add funds to the Business Account by sending personal checks, cashier’s checks, or money orders to the Bank. The Bank will return all checks and money orders unless the Business Account has a negative balance, in which case the Bank may, in its sole discretion, apply the proceeds of the check or money order towards the negative balance of the Business Account.a. Bank Account Transfer. Business Administrator may authorize us to electronically debit Business Account Owner’s designated deposit account at Business Account Owner’s designated U.S. depository financial institution (“ank Account”) via the Automated Clearinghouse Network (“C”) for a specified amount on a one-time or recurring basis and add such amount to the Business Account. Business Administrator may provide such authorization and Business Account Owner’s Bank Account information via the Website and the App. Amounts debited from the Bank Account will be added to the Business Account and available for allocation to the Card Accounts generally within three business days of when we receive the authorization and all required consents and information.
5.5 Establishing Card Account Settings. Only funds in the Business Account may be allocated to a Card Account and accessed utilizing a Card. A Business Administrator may set certain limits (“Settings”) for each Card and the allocated Card Account through the Website. Authorized Users will not be permitted to establish or modify the Settings. For example, a Business Administrator may establish Settings that limit the amount of funds that may be allocated to a Card Account or the amount of transactions that may be performed with a Card in a day or month. A Business Administrator may change the Settings from time to time via the Website without an Authorized User’s consent. New Settings and changes to existing Settings will be effective only after we have a reasonable period of time to process the new settings or changes.
5.6 Cancellation and Suspension. In addition to and without limiting our rights under this Agreement, the Business Administrator may suspend or cancel a Card Account at any time by changing the Settings on the Website (See Section 5.5 above). Upon the suspension or cancellation of a Card Account, the Authorized User may no longer be able to use the Card Account or the associated Card.
5.7 Transaction Requirement. Transactions approved and processed with the Card may only be used to purchase goods and services for business purposes only and not for personal, family or household purposes.
5.9 Revocation of Business Administrator Privilege. Business Account Owner must notify us at email firstname.lastname@example.org to revoke permission for any Business Administrator to administer the Business Account and Card Account(s). Any revocation of such permission will be effective only after we have a reasonable period of time to process Business Account Owner’s withdrawal.
5.10 Revocation of Authorized User Privileges. A Business Administrator must modify the Settings via the Penny Inc Website or App, or notify us at email email@example.com to revoke permission for an Authorized User to use the Card. Any revocation of such permission will be effective only after we have a reasonable period of time to process Business Account Owner’s withdrawal.
5.11 Activating A Card. Authorized User must activate their Card before it can be used. Authorized User may activate a Card on the App or by calling (415)231-3766. In order to activate a Card, the Authorized User will need to provide certain User Information so we can verify the Authorized User’s identity and then select a PIN.
5.12 Fee. All fees will be deducted from the Business Account. The fee schedule located at the end of this Agreement lists the fees applicable to the Program. In some cases, the actual fee charged may be lower than the fee stated in the fee schedule. If you believe a fee was charged in error, contact Customer Service.
5.13 Card and PIN Security. When selecting a PIN, Authorized Users should not use numbers or words that appear in their wallets (e.g., Authorized Users’ date of birth, address, or social security number). Authorized Users must memorize their PINS and not share them with anyone. Do not write the PIN on a Card or keep it in the same location as the Card. Authorized Users should treat the Card with the same care as cash. Always protect the Card and keep it in a safe place. Do not send a Card or PIN number in an email or text message. Make sure Card and Access Information is secured with encryption when used to perform transactions over the Internet or wireless networks.
5.14 Lost or Stolen Card, Compromised PIN or Unauthorized Access to Business Account. The Card is a commercial card and does not provide consumer protections for lost or stolen Cards or unauthorized transactions. Treat the Card like cash. Until a Business Administrator or Authorized User reports a Card as lost or stolen or reports an unauthorized transaction on a Business Account or Card Account, Business Account Owner is fully responsible for all transactions, even if the Card is lost, stolen or used for unauthorized transactions. Contact Customer Service IMMEDIATELY if a Business Administrator or Authorized User believes: (a) a Card has been lost or stolen, (b) someone has gained unauthorized access to any Access Information, or (c) someone has transferred or may transfer funds from the Business Account or a Card Account without a Business Administrator’s or Authorized User’s permission. Reporting a lost/stolen Card or unauthorized transactions through www.thepennyinc.com/support or by logging into the Website to deactivate the card is the best way to minimize possible losses. Unless we have authorized a transaction after a Business Account or Card Account is blocked (see Section 5.30 – Our Liability to Business Account Owner), Business Account Owner and Authorized User are responsible for all unauthorized transactions initiated and fees incurred from the unauthorized use of a Card. Failure to promptly notify us could result in the Business Account Owner losing ALL of the money in the Business Account and the associated Card Accounts.
5.15 Using A Card. Cards may not be used for ATM cash withdrawals and may not be used for Business payroll payments. Authorized User may use a Card to make purchases at any merchant that accepts MasterCard debit cards or debit cards of other networks in which the Bank participates, subject to the available Card Account balance, the transaction limits and transaction restrictions outlined below, and the other terms and condition of this Agreement. If Authorized User uses a Card number without presenting the Card (such as for a mail order, telephone, or Internet purchase), the legal effect will be the same as if Authorized User used the Card itself. Each time Authorized User uses a Card, Business Account Owner and Authorized User authorizes us to reduce the value available in the Card Account by the amount of the transaction and any applicable fees. Authorized User is not allowed to exceed the amount of the available funds in the Business Account or allocated to his or her Card Account, whichever is less, through an individual transaction or a series of transactions. Nevertheless, if a transaction exceeds the amount of available funds in the Business Account or allocated to an Authorized User’s Card Account, Business Account Owner will be fully liable to us for the full amount of the transaction and any applicable fees. We may refuse to process a transaction, or temporarily “freeze” a Card Account and attempt to contact a Business Administrator if we notice transactions that are unusual or appear suspicious, or use of the Card that are not consistent with its intended use.
5.16 Merchant Holds on Available Fund. When Authorized User uses a Card or Card number to initiate a transaction at certain merchant locations, such as hotels, restaurants, gas stations, and rental car companies, where the final purchase amount is unknown at the time of authorization, a hold may be placed on the available funds in the Card Account for an amount equal to or in excess of the final transaction amount. The funds subject to the hold will not be available to Business Account Owner or Authorized User for any other purpose until the merchant sends us the final transaction amount. Once we receive the final transaction amount, it may take up to seven days for the hold to be removed. During that period, Business Account Owner and Authorized User will not have access to the funds subject to the hold. Please be advised that Authorized User may experience difficulties using a Card at unattended vending machines, kiosks, and gas station pumps. If a Card is declined at a “pay at the pump” gas station even though Authorized User has sufficient funds available, Authorized User should pay for the purchase inside with the cashier.
5.17 Transaction Limits. The maximum amount that can be spent using the Card Account is limited to lower of: (a) the limits set by a Business Administrator and (b) limits set forth by the Bank. The Bank’s limits are: (1) maximum amount that can be spent using a Card Account is $5,000 per day. In order to protect the Card Account, we may temporarily impose limits on the dollar amount, number, and type of transactions performed using a Card and the Card Account. To the extent permitted by applicable law, we reserve the right to: (a) change the transaction limits; (b) limit, block, or place a hold on certain types of transfers or transactions: and (c) limit, suspend, or block transfers from particular persons, entities, or Card Accounts.
5.18 Transaction Restriction. Authorized User may not use a Card for online gambling or illegal transactions. A Business Administrator may restrict transactions (a) based on Merchant Category Code, (b) purchases originating outside of the United States, or (c) purchases made to sellers outside of the United States. We may refuse to process any transaction we believe violates the terms of this Agreement.
5.19 Responsibility for Authorized Transactions. Business Account Owner is responsible for all transactions initiated and fees incurred by use of a Card and Card Account. If a Business Administrator or an Authorized User permit another person to have access to a Card or Card number, we will treat this as if the Business Administrator has authorized such person to use the Card, and Business Account Owner will be liable for all transactions and fees incurred by such person, even if they exceed the authorization granted. Business Account Owner will further be responsible for any transactions made and any fees incurred by the Authorized User even if the Authorized User exceeds the scope of the authority granted to such Authorized User by Business Account Owner. Transactions will be considered unauthorized only after a Business Administrator notifies us that the person is no longer authorized to use the Card.
5.20 Card Account Balance. It is important to know the amount of available funds in the Card Account before performing a transaction with a Card. If there are not sufficient funds in the Card Account to cover the transaction amount, the transaction will be declined. If Authorized User does not have sufficient funds in the Card Account, Authorized User can request that the merchant charge a part of the purchase to the Card and pay the remaining amount with cash or another card. These are called “split transactions.” Some merchants do not allow cardholders to conduct split transactions. Business Account Owner and Authorized User acknowledges and agrees that the funds available to perform transactions are limited to the available funds that have been added to the Card Account that are not subject to a hold. Authorized User is not authorized to use any funds added to the Card Account in error. Any transaction that could create a negative balance for the Business Account or a Card Account is not permitted, but may occur in limited circumstances. Adjustments may be made to the Card Account to reverse an error, reflect a merchant adjustment, or resolve a dispute regarding a transaction posted to the Card Account. These processing and adjustment entries could cause the Business Account or Card Account to have a negative balance. If a Business Account or Card Account has a negative balance, Business Account Owner and Authorized User agrees: (a) that the balance of Business Account can be adjusted to reflect that amount; (b) that we may automatically apply any amounts available in the Business Account to the Business Account to satisfy the negative balance and (c) to pay us on demand by a personal check, money order, or other payment method authorized by us for the amount of the negative balance. If no future funds are added to the Card Account, we may send Business Account Owner a notice explaining the reason for the adjustment and requesting payment by a personal check, money order, or other payment method to satisfy the negative balance. Payments should be mailed to us at the address provided below or the address stated in the applicable notice.
5.21 Transaction History. A Business Administrator may obtain information about the available funds in the Business Account or a Card Account and the history of the Card Account transactions on the Penny Inc Website or the App or by calling Customer Service.
5.22 Account Alert. If a Business Administrator and Authorized User provide email addresses to us, we will send the Business Administrator and Authorized User important notices via email about the Card Account. In addition, if a Business Administrator and Authorized User provide mobile phone number or other text message addresses to us, the Business Administrator and Authorized User expressly consent to receive text messages relating to the Card Account at that number or address. The Business Administrator and Authorized User may change the frequency of notifications at any time by updating their notification setting on the website. Third-party data and message fees may apply.
5.23 Verified Mobile Device. In order for the Business Administrator to use Program services with a mobile device, the Business Administrator must provide a valid mobile device number or text message address on the Penny Inc Website and verify such number or text message address as instructed by us. To verify that mobile device number or text message address, we may send a code via text message to the mobile device number or text message address provided, and require the code to be entered as instructed by us. If the Business Administrator’s mobile device number or text message address changes, the Business Administrator must promptly provide and verify the new mobile device number or text message address.
5.24 Transactions in Foreign Currency. If you make a purchase using a Card in a currency other than in U.S. dollars, the amount deducted from the available funds in the Card Account will be converted by MasterCard into U.S. dollars. The applicable exchange rate will be selected by MasterCard from the range of rates available in wholesale currency markets for the applicable central processing date, which may vary from the rate MasterCard itself receives or the government-mandated rate. The exchange rate used on the central processing date may be different than the rate that was in effect on the date you performed the transaction. For each foreign currency transaction, the Bank may assess a foreign currency conversion fee and will retain this amount as compensation for its services. Please refer to the fee schedule below for the current foreign currency transaction fee.
5.25 Receipt. Authorized User should get a receipt for each Card transaction. Authorized User agrees to retain, verify, and reconcile Card transactions and receipts.
5.26 Refunds and Dispute. Authorized User will not receive cash refunds for Card transactions. If a merchant gives Authorized User a credit for merchandise returns or adjustments, the merchant may do so by processing a credit adjustment, which we will credit to the available funds in the Card Account. We are not responsible for the delivery, quality, safety, legality, or any other aspects of goods or services that Authorized User purchases with a Card. All such disputes must be addressed and handled directly with the merchant from whom those goods or services were purchased.
5.28 Replacement Card. The expiration date of a Card is identified on the front of the Card. If there is a positive balance of funds in the Card Account upon expiration of a Card and the Card Account is in good standing, we may issue Authorized User a new Card. We may also issue Authorized User a new Card when the Card expires even if there are no funds in the Card Account. If Authorized User needs to replace a Card for any reason, please contact a Business Administrator, who should contact Customer Service. The Business Administrator will need to provide certain User Information so we can verify their identity. There is a fee for replacement cards. Please see the fee schedule below.
5.29 Additional Cards. here is no fee for the first 4 Cards requested by the Business Administrator. Any additional cards requested by the Business Administrator, a fee will be applied. Please see the fee schedule below.
5.30 Our Liability to Business Account Owner. If we do not complete an electronic fund transfer to or from a Card Account on time or in the correct amount according to these Terms, we may be liable to Business Account Owner for the losses or damages. However, there are some exceptions. We will not be liable if: (a) through no fault of ours, Authorized User does not have enough available funds in the Card Account to perform the transaction; (b) circumstances beyond our reasonable control (such as fire, flood, water damage, power failure, strike, labor dispute, computer breakdown, telephone line disruption, or natural disaster) prevent or delay the transfer despite reasonable precautions taken by us; (c) the system, or point-of-sale terminal was not working properly and a Business Administrator or Authorized User knew about the problem when Authorized User initiated the transaction; (d) the funds in the Card Account are subject to legal process or are otherwise not available for transactions; (e) the merchant refuses to accept a Card; (f) if access to a Card has been blocked after a Business Administrator or Authorized User reported a Card lost or stolen; (g) if we have reason to believe the transaction is unauthorized; or (h) the transaction cannot be completed because a Card is damaged.
