Terms and Conditions For ZipLine Payment Services
1. Acceptance Of Terms
By enrolling in and using this Service, you agree to be bound by the terms and conditions of this Agreement, and you acknowledge that you have read, understand and agree to abide by the terms of this Agreement. You agree that you are intending to form a legally binding contract between yourself and ZipLine. Any rights not expressly granted herein are reserved by ZipLine.
2. Description of the Service
Upon completion of the Payment Card Enrollment Application ("Application") and acceptance by ZipLine, You will become eligible to use the Services offered by ZipLine. We will make a direct deposit to and a withdrawal from your account designated in your Application via the Automated Clearinghouse Association ("ACH"). This deposit and withdrawal will be confirmation to You that You have been enrolled in and may use the Service. If You plan to use Your driver's license or a current loyalty card as Your method of payment, ZipLine will issue You a User Identification ("User ID" or "PIN") selected by You at time of enrollment that must be used in conjunction with the card at the time of each purchase. If You do not plan to use Your driver's license or other card, We will issue a proprietary debit card ("Payment Card") to You that can be used for payment for goods and services that You purchase from a participating merchant ("Merchant"). The Payment Card may be either mailed to You, or You may pick up the Payment Card from the Merchant's location, depending on the Merchant's program. Regardless of the program type, You must activate Your card before using Your card to make payments. You must follow the instructions that accompany the Payment Card Program or which are contained in the email sent to You after receiving your enrollment. You will need your User ID (PIN) to log in to Our system at www.npcmember.com or the member link provided on the merchant's website to have access to Your account information and transaction history.
3. Enrollment Requirements
You must be 18 years of age or older in order to use the Service. A valid and functional email address must be provided. Your enrolled User ID ("PIN") should not be shared with anyone. You agree to (a) provide true, accurate, current and complete information about Yourself as prompted by the Application (such information being the "Enrollment Data") and (b) maintain and promptly update the Enrollment Data to keep it true, accurate, current and complete. If You provide any information that is untrue, inaccurate, not current or incomplete, or if ZipLine has reasonable grounds to suspect that such data is untrue, inaccurate, not current or incomplete, We have the right to suspend or terminate the Service and refuse any and all current or future use of the Service (or any portion thereof). By enrolling in and using the Service, in addition to the terms of this Agreement, You agree to comply with all applicable federal, state/provincial and local laws, rules and regulations. Your failure to comply with the Terms and Conditions, including those contained in this section shall be deemed a waiver of any and all claims against ZipLine for any losses You may sustain from using the Service.
4. Enrollee Authorizations
ZipLine utilizes a third-party, RIBBIT, to help validate your enrollment information and retrieve bank account information. You hereby provide electronic consent and authorization to RIBBIT to retrieve your bank account information to allow ZipLine to facilitate the transfer of funds for your payment transactions. In the event RIBBIT is unable to retrieve your bank information you will be required to provide your routing and account information in order to receive approval of your application.
In acceptance of this agreement, You authorize ZipLine and/or its Merchants, to withdraw and/or deposit funds in Your account via ACH (Electronic Check) at the depository institution designated in the Application which will be reflected in debit and credit entries. You understand that an ACH transaction may take up to three (3) business days to post to Your bank account. When You conduct a transaction through Our Service, You are responsible for ensuring that the funds are available at the time the transaction is conducted, and properly processed (posts) to Your account. You acknowledge that the origination of ACH transactions to Your account must comply with the provisions of U.S. law. Additionally, You authorize ZipLine and/or its Merchants to verify Your Identity. You also authorize ZipLine to provide transaction history information to its Merchants. The authorization to complete transactions using the Service will remain in effect until You provide us with written notification of Your intention to terminate this Agreement in writing.
In the event that Your bank does not allow electronic transactions, You authorize us to convert the electronic transaction data to a paper draft for presentment to Your bank. In the event that Your bank denies the electronic transaction and returns electronic payment to ZipLine, You authorize Us to re-present the original electronic transaction amount. If Your payment is returned unpaid (NSF, Account Closed/Frozen, etc.), You authorize CHECKredi to make an electronic fund transfer from Your account to collect the original transaction and a "return fee". The return fee will be up to the maximum amount permissible by state law. This fee is separate from any fees that Your bank may impose for such returns. I agree and authorize CHECKredi to contact me by email and U.S. mail, at my residence phone number, place of employment phone number and cellular phone number by means of a telephone call, a dialer or a text for the purpose of collections. I also agree to receive email communications from CHECKredi regarding my returned items for the purpose of collections. We recommend that You have Overdraft Protection on the account used for Your payment card transactions. ZipLine may share data with third parties to verify the validity of your identity and banking data presented during enrollment.
5. Enrollment and annual account maintenance fee
There are no enrollment fees and we do not charge a per transaction fee to the consumer for the use of Your payment card account (and/or mobile application). Your payment card account may be subject to an annual maintenance fee of up to $1.00 after one year from enrollment, as properly disclosed by the participating Merchant. The fee will be properly disclosed at enrollment by the Merchant's website and/or collateral material prior to any fee amount being debited from Your authorized bank account.
7. Transfer and Closure of Accounts
As an enrollee, Your right to use the Service is nontransferable and any rights to Your ZipLine account or contents within Your account terminate upon written notification from ZipLine in Our sole and absolute discretion, at any time for any reason including, but not limited to closure of Your bank account, Your filing for bankruptcy protection, or Your account is subject to judgment or lien.
8. ZipLine Card's Proprietary Rights

To the extent allowed by law, We, and the Merchants, will not be liable for consequential damages (including lost profits), extraordinary damages, special or punitive damages. For example, neither We, nor the Merchants, shall be liable:

12. Error Resolution Procedures
ALL INQUIRIES CONCERNING TRANSACTIONS MADE THROUGH THIS SERVICE MUST BE DIRECTED TO ZipLine, AND NOT TO THE MERCHANT, BANK OR OTHER FINANCIAL INSTITUTION WHERE YOU HAVE YOUR ACCOUNT. We are responsible for the ZipLine Service and for resolving any errors in transactions made through the use of the Service. We will make monthly account activity information available to You identifying transactions that You made through this Service. You may access Your account information at www.npcmember.com. The financial institution holding Your account may also make periodic statements available to You. SAVE THE RECEIPTS YOU ARE GIVEN WHEN YOU USE YOUR CARD, AND CHECK THEM AGAINST THE ACCOUNT STATEMENT YOU RECEIVE FROM THE FINANCIAL INSTITUTION HOLDING YOUR ACCOUNT, YOUR BANK OR OTHER FINANCIAL INSTITUTION. If You have any questions about one of these transactions You may contact Us by email, telephone, or in writing addressed in accordance with the contact information provided at the end of these enrollment term and conditions.
We must hear from You no later than 60 days after Your financial institution sent you the FIRST statement on which the problem or error appeared.
(a) Provide Us Your
name and account number (if any).
(b) Describe the error or the transfer You are unsure about, and explain as clearly as You can why You believe it is an error or why You need more information.
(c) Provide Us the dollar amount of the suspected error.
If You advise us orally, We may require that You send Us Your complaint or question in writing within 10 business days. We will determine whether an error occurred within 10 business days after We hear from You and will correct any error promptly. If We need additional time, however, We may take up to 45 days to investigate Your complaint or question. If We decide to do this, We will credit Your account within 10 business days for the amount You think is in error, so that You will have the use of the money during the time it takes us to complete our investigation. If We ask You to put Your complaint or question in writing and We do not receive it within 10 business days, we may not credit Your account. For errors involving new accounts, point-of-sale, or foreign-initiated transactions, We may take up to 90 days to investigate Your complaint or question. For new accounts, We may take up to 20 business days to credit Your account for the amount you think is in error. We will tell You the results within three business days after completing Our investigation. If We decide that there was no error, We will send You a written explanation. You may request copies of the documents that We used in our investigation.

If You have received a payment or refund from any other party and You also receive a payment or refund for the same transaction from Us, You hereby authorize Us to immediately reverse the payment or refund given to You by Us.
13. Your Liability for Unauthorized Transfers
It is Your obligation to immediately notify Us if You believe Your card or PIN has been lost or stolen. Telephoning is the best way of minimizing Your possible losses. In the event that you fail to notify us that your Payment Card or PIN is lost, stolen or compromised, You could lose all the money in Your account (plus your maximum overdraft line of credit). If You notify us within 4 business days of the loss or theft of Your card or PIN, Your loss will not exceed $50.
If You do NOT notify us within 4 business days of the loss or theft of Your card PIN, and We can prove We could have stopped someone from using Your card or PIN without Your permission had You notified Us in a timely manner, you could lose as much as $500. Additionally, if the periodic statement provided by Your financial institution holding Your account shows transfers made with your Payment Card or through the use of Your User ID or PIN that You did not make, notify Us at once.
If You do not notify Us within 90 days after the statement was made available to You at www.npcmember.com You may not receive any money lost, if We can demonstrate that We could have stopped someone from taking the money, had You notified Us in a timely manner. We may, in Our sole and absolute discretion, extend the grace period in the prior sentence, upon good cause shown.

By providing your consent to this Agreement, you also confirm that you are able to access all of the disclosures, records and other information provided to you in electronic form.
Please read this section carefully. It affects rights that you may otherwise have. It provides for resolution of most disputes through arbitration instead of court trials and class actions. Arbitration is more informal than a lawsuit in court, uses a neutral arbitrator instead of a judge or jury, and discovery is more limited. Arbitration is final and binding and subject to only very limited review by a court. This arbitration clause shall survive termination of this Agreement.
This provision is intended to be interpreted broadly to encompass all disputes or claims arising out of or relating to this Agreement, and your relationship with us. Any dispute or claim arising out of or relating to this Agreement or use of the Card and your relationship with Us or any subsidiary, parent or affiliate company or companies (whether based in contract, tort, statute, fraud, misrepresentation or any other legal theory) will be resolved by binding arbitration, except that either of us may take claims to small claims court if they qualify for hearing by such a court.
Notwithstanding the above, you may choose to pursue your claim in court and not by arbitration if you opt out of this arbitration provision within 30 days from signing up for the Rewards program (the "Opt Out Deadline"). You may opt out of these arbitration procedures by sending us a written notice that you opt out to the following address: ZipLine 300 Lock Road, Suite 202, Deerfield Beach, FL 33442. Any opt-out received after the Opt Out Deadline (allowing three (3) additional days for mailing) will not be valid and you must pursue your claim in arbitration or small claims court.
For all disputes, whether pursued in court or arbitration, you must first send a written description of your claim to our Customer Service department to allow us an opportunity to resolve the dispute. You and we each agree to negotiate your claim in good faith. You may request arbitration if your claim or dispute cannot be resolved within 60 days.
The arbitration of any dispute or claim shall be conducted in accordance with the rules of the American Arbitration Association ("AAA"), including the AAA's Consumer Arbitration Rules (as applicable), as modified by this Agreement. The AAA Rules and information about arbitration and fees are available online at www.adr.org. You and we agree that this Agreement evidences a transaction in interstate commerce and this arbitration provision will be interpreted and enforced in accordance with the U.S. Federal Arbitration Act and federal arbitration law, and not governed by state law. Any arbitration will be held in a reasonably convenient location in the state in which you reside or at another mutually agreed location. The arbitration will be conducted in the English language. An arbitrator may award on an individual basis any relief that would be available in a court, including injunctive or declaratory relief to the extent required to satisfy your individual claim, and must follow and enforce this Agreement as a court would. Any arbitration shall be confidential, and neither you nor we may disclose the existence, content or results of any arbitration, except as may be required by law or for purposes of enforcement of the arbitration award. Judgment on any arbitration award may be entered in any court having proper jurisdiction.
Upon filing of the arbitration demand, we will pay all filing, administration and arbitrator fees other than the initial $200 filing fee, and for claims of less than $1,000, we will reimburse you for the filing fee within 30 days of receiving a written request from you. Each party will bear the fees and expense of its own attorneys, experts, witnesses and preparation and presentation of evidence at the arbitration. However, for claims under $10,000 as to which you provided notice and negotiated in good faith as required above before initiating arbitration, if the arbitrator finds you are the prevailing party in the arbitration, you will be entitled to a recovery of reasonable attorneys' fees and costs. Except for claims determined to be frivolous, we agree not to seek an award of attorneys' fees in arbitration even if an award is otherwise available under applicable law.
You and we each agree that any proceeding, whether in arbitration or in court, will be conducted only on an individual basis and not in a class, consolidated or representative action. If a court or arbitrator determines in an action between you and us that this class action waiver is unenforceable, the arbitration agreement will be void as to you. If you opt out of the arbitration provision as specified above, this class action waiver provision will not apply to you. Neither you, nor any other consumer, can be a class representative, class member, or otherwise participate in a class, consolidated or representative proceeding without having complied with the opt out procedure set forth above. If for any reason a claim proceeds in court rather than through arbitration, you and we each waive any right to a jury trial.
This Agreement shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of New York notwithstanding any conflict of law rules.
We and our affiliates make no representations, warranties or conditions of any kind, express or implied, with respect to the Rewards or the App, including, but not limited to, any implied warranty of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, title or non-infringement, or any warranty arising by usage of trade, course of dealing or course of performance. We do not represent or warrant that your Rewards or the App will always be accessible or accepted.
In the event that we or our affiliates are found liable to you, you shall only be entitled to recover actual and direct damages and such damages shall not exceed the last balance held on your Rewards. We and our affiliates shall have no liability for any incidental, indirect or consequential damages (including without limitation loss of profit, revenue or use), or any punitive or exemplary damages arising out of or in any way connected with this Agreement, whether in contract, warranty, tort (including negligence, whether active, passive or imputed), product liability, strict liability or other theory, even if we or our authorized representatives have been advised of the possibility of such damages. In no event shall we or our affiliates have any liability for unauthorized access to, or alteration, theft or destruction of a Rewards account or the App through accident, misuse or fraudulent means or devices by you or any third party, or as a result of any delay or mistake resulting from any circumstances beyond our control.
The laws of certain states or other jurisdictions do not allow limitations on implied warranties, or the exclusion or limitation of certain damages. If these laws apply, some or all of the above disclaimers, exclusions or limitations may not apply to you, and you may have rights in addition to those contained in this Agreement. In such jurisdictions, our liability is limited to the greatest extent permitted by law.
We may assign all or part of this Agreement without notice to you. We are then released from all liability. You may not assign this Agreement without our prior written consent and any attempted assignment will be void.
This Agreement is the complete and exclusive statement of agreement between you and National Payment Card Association dba ZipLine and supersedes and merges all prior proposals and all other agreements governing your Rewards account. If any provision of this Agreement, other than the Class Action Waiver in the Arbitration provision above, is determined to be illegal or unenforceable, that provision will be eliminated to the minimum extent necessary so that this Agreement shall otherwise remain in full force and effect and enforceable.
Apple and Apple's subsidiaries are third party beneficiaries of these Terms. Upon User's acceptance of these Terms, Apple will have the right (and will be deemed to have accepted the right) to enforce these Terms against User as a third-party beneficiary thereof.
Notwithstanding any of these Terms, we reserve the right, without notice and in its sole discretion, to terminate your license to use the Application and to block or prevent your future access to and use of the Application. Our failure or delay in taking such actions does not constitute a waiver of its rights to enforce these Terms.
We reserve the right to change or modify these Terms or any other policies related to use of the Application at any time and at its sole discretion by changing these Terms within the Application or by posting revisions on our website. Continued use of the Application following such changes or modifications to the Terms or other policies will constitute acceptance of such changes or modifications. If you do not agree to such changes or modifications, you should uninstall the Application immediately.
If any provision of these Terms shall be deemed unlawful, void or for any reason unenforceable, then that provision shall be deemed severable from these Terms and shall not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions.
