The initial user setting up the Circle will be the “Administrator.” Through the Administrator account, the Administrator has the authority to add additional users into the Circle account and grant certain permissions to individual users. Administrators will have the ability to access all the individual user accounts within the group, including the ability to access, monitor, use, modify, withhold or disclose any data available to users in a group account. The Administrator account is responsible for ensuring that all activities that occur in connection with the Circle comply with the Agreement. In a Circle, if permissions are granted to users, funds in the Circle can be withdrawn or used by all users in the Circle.

Rift Pay personal and Circle accounts may not be used to conduct business or other commercial transactions with other personal accounts, which includes paying or accepting payment from other personal accounts held by users you do not personally know for goods or services.

  1. Holds. A hold may apply to a specific transaction, to your personal account, or to a Circle account. If a hold is placed on a transaction or an account, transactions are not available to either the sender or the recipient of funds. When we place a hold, we do so because there may be a high level of risk associated with you, your account, or your transactions or because placing such a hold is necessary to comply with state or federal requirements, including investigations. We make decisions about whether to place a hold based on a number of factors, including information available to us from both internal sources and third parties.

Holds may remain in place for as long as necessary as permitted by law. Any placements and releases of holds are at our sole discretion.

  1. Account Limitations. In additional to platform-wide transactional and account limitations, we may place additional limitations on your use specifically. A limitation may apply to a specific transaction, to your personal account, or to a Circle account. Limitations are similar to holds but they allow you to still make transactions through your account and we use them to protect Rift Pay and our users when we notice activities that appears unusual or suspicious. We may place limitations for several reasons, including, but not limited to:
  1. if we suspect irregular account activity, like someone else using your account without your knowledge;
  2. if one of our third-party service providers notifies us that transactions may be fraudulent;
  3. if we reasonably believe your transactions violate our terms; or
  4. to comply with the law.

  1. Reasoning for Holds and Limitations. We have no obligation to disclose the details of our risk management or security procedures to you. Our decision about holds and limitations may be based on confidential criteria that are essential to our management of risk and the protection of Rift Pay, our users, and/or our service providers. We may use fraud and risk modeling when assessing the risk associated with your account. In addition, we may be restricted by regulation or a governmental authority from disclosing certain information to you about such decisions.

  1. Reversals, Chargebacks, Claims, Fees, Fines, and Penalties. You are responsible for all reversals, chargebacks, claims, fees, fines, penalties and other liability incurred by us, any customer, or a third party caused by or arising out of your breach of this agreement, and/or your use of the Services.

  1. Payment Reversals by Rift Pay. Payments may be invalidated and reversed by us if, among other reasons, we sent the payment to you in error, the funding transaction is declined or reversed, the payment was unauthorized or unfunded, or if the payment was for activities that violated this user agreement or any other agreement with us. As the sender or recipient of a payment that is later invalidated for any reason, you may be liable to us for the full amount of the payment and we may recover the amount of the payment (plus any fees) from you. We may recover the amount of the payment from either the sender or the recipient of an invalidated payment in our discretion (subject to applicable law).

If we invalidate a payment because the card issuer or originating bank declined or reversed the transaction, then you may be liable for the payment even if you disagree with the decision of the card issuer or originating bank to decline or reverse the payment. If you believe that a payment initiated with your Rift Pay account was not authorized, then you must notify us immediately. If you fail to report the unauthorized activity directly to us, then we may recover the amount of the reversed payment from you, as described above.

  1. Unauthorized Transactions.

  1. An “Unauthorized Transaction” occurs when money is sent from your personal account that you did not authorize and that did not benefit you or that is sent from your Circle account but not authorized by any member of the Circle. For example, if someone steals your or a Circle member’s password, uses the password to access an account, and sends a payment, an Unauthorized Transaction has occurred.
  2. The following arenot considered Unauthorized Transactions:
  1. If you give someone access to your account (by giving them your login information) and they use your account without your knowledge or permission.
  2. If someone in your Circle, with authorized access to send payments, makes a payment that you, or even all other members of the Circle, disagree with.
  3. Invalidation and reversal of a payment by a bank or other financial institution

You are responsible for transactions made in the situation listed above.

  1. Duty to Report Unauthorized Transactions. If you believe your account has been wrongfully accessed or that an Unauthorized Transaction has been made, you agree to contact Rift Pay immediately. If we do not receive immediate notice from you regarding the Unauthorized Transactions, and timely notice would have provided us opportunity to stop the transaction, you may not get back any of the transferred funds.
