Changes to Terms or Services
We may modify the Terms at any time, in our sole discretion. If we do so, we will let you know either by posting the modified Terms on the Site or through other communications. It's important that you review the modified Terms because if you continue to use the Services after we've let you know that the Terms have been modified, you are indicating to us that you agree to be bound by the modified Terms. If you don't agree to be bound by the modified Terms, then you may no longer use the Services. Because our Services are evolving over time, we may change or discontinue all or any part of the Services, at any time and without notice, at our sole discretion.
Registration and Authorization to Use Your Information
If you want to use the Services, you will have to create an account. When you present a prepaid or gift card to initiate a liquidation service with our Service Providers via our Services, you may be asked to provide additional information to validate the prepaid or gift card or further authenticate your identity. You agree to provide us with accurate, complete and up-to-date information. Information you supply to us will be User Content governed by these Terms (see Content Ownership, Responsibility and Removal, below).
USA PATRIOT Act Notice
Important information about procedures for using the %p Services under the USA PATRIOT Act of 2001: To help the government fight the funding of terrorism and money laundering activities, federal law requires all financial institutions to obtain, verify, and record information that identifies each person who transacts on our Services. What this means for you: When you use our Services, we will ask for your name, address, date of birth, and other information that will allow us to identify you on behalf of our Service Providers. We may also ask to see a form of identification with your photograph or other identifying documents.
You authorize us and our Service Providers, and other third parties used by our Service Providers, to make any inquiries that our Service Providers deem appropriate to verify your identity. This may include asking you for additional information, asking you to take steps to verify your control over the telephone numbers, email addresses, or financial accounts you identify, obtaining a credit report, or consulting other databases or sources.
Our Obligation to Provide Services
We and our Service Providers (collectively “we,” “our,” or “us”) have no obligation to provide the Services to anyone. We will, at our exclusive and sole discretion, initiate the Services if we determine that our requirements have been satisfied. We have the right to require you to supply any information we believe is necessary for us to determine whether we wish to proceed with a transaction. We can refuse to provide the Services for any lawful or no reason, in our sole discretion.
The Services only apply, at our discretion, to prepaid cards—which are commonly referred to as "gift" cards, or similar cards received as a consumer incentive, such as rebate cards—that are presented by persons residing in the United States.
Further, we will only supply the Services in connections with cards that are issued on an "open" network such as Visa, MasterCard, American Express, or Discover, as indicated by the presence of the service mark of the applicable open network on the card. We do not provide Services for prepaid cards issued by a governmental agency, insurance company, or transit agency. We will not supply the Services in connection with reloadable prepaid cards.
We will use information supplied by you to determine, in our sole discretion, if we will provide the Services. When you initiate a transaction, in addition to other identification measures, we may place a pre-authorization, authorization or temporary hold (“Hold”) on the funds on your prepaid card for the transaction amount indicated by you at the time you submitted the transaction to us. Until your transaction is reviewed, the funds subject to the Hold will not be available to you for other purposes. In the event either you or we decide not to consummate a transaction, the Hold will be canceled, and funds will be returned to your card within approximately 5 business days or when the transaction clears, whichever comes first. If for some reason we cannot cancel the Hold on the card, we will contact you within 5 business days to arrange a refund for the original transaction amount less processing and delivery fees.
CardFunder partners with the leading gift card secondary resale markets to allow you to receive offers for branded retail gift cards. All branded gift card services provided by the leading gift card secondary markets are subject to their collective terms and conditions.
If you dispute a transaction or believe a transaction was not authorized, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org , and provide proof of ownership of the card. If we confirm you own the card and that the transaction was not authorized, we will either stop the transaction or, attempt to reverse the transaction. If you believe a transaction was fraudulent and wish to file a complaint with law enforcement, we will share the fraudulent account information with law enforcement.
We may block or reverse transactions in our sole discretion and for any reason, including cases where we suspect fraud or suspicious activity.

Transaction activity reviews
We review account and transaction activity at various times. This review checks for, among other things, suspicious or illegal activity, and whether your account activity complies with the Terms of Service. In connection with our review process, you may be required to provide us with additional information and/or documentation to verify your identity. We may limit your account until verification is completed.

CARDFUNDER MAKES NO WARRANTY THAT THE SITE, SERVICES AND CONTENT WILL MEET YOUR REQUIREMENTS OR BE AVAILABLE ON AN UNINTERRUPTED, SECURE, OR ERROR-FREE BASIS. CARDFUNDER MAKES NO WARRANTY REGARDING THE QUALITY OF THE SERVICES OR CONTENT, OR THE ACCURACY, TIMELINESS, TRUTHFULNESS, COMPLETENESS OR RELIABILITY OF ANY SERVICES OR CONTENT OBTAINED THROUGH THE SITE OR SERVICES.

You agree to defend, indemnify and hold harmless CardFunder and its affiliates, subsidiaries and contractors, and their respective officers, representatives, directors, employees, Service Providers, and agents (the “CardFunder Parties”), from and against any claims, liabilities, damages, injuries, losses, and expenses (compensatory, direct, incidental, consequential or otherwise), including, without limitation, reasonable legal and accounting fees and expenses, arising out of or in any way connected with (a) your access to or use of the Site, Services, or Content or your violation of these Terms; or (b) your User Content.

If you are a California resident, you hereby waive California Civil Code Section 1542, which states, “A general release does not extend to claims which the creditor does not know or suspect to exist in his favor at the time of executing the release, which, if known by him must have materially affected his settlement with the debtor.” The foregoing release does not apply to any claims, demands, or any losses, damages, rights and actions of any kind, including personal injuries, death or property damage, for any unconscionable commercial practice by any of the CardFunder Parties or for such party's fraud, deception, false promise, misrepresentation or concealment, suppression or omission of any material fact in connection with the Site or Services.

SOME JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OR LIMITATION OF LIABILITY FOR CONSEQUENTIAL OR INCIDENTAL DAMAGES, SO THE ABOVE LIMITATION MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.
IN NO EVENT WILL CARDFUNDER'S TOTAL LIABILITY ARISING OUT OF OR IN CONNECTION WITH THESE TERMS OR FROM THE USE OF OR INABILITY TO USE THE SERVICES OR CONTENT EXCEED ONE HUNDRED DOLLARS ($100), PROVIDED THAT NOTHING HEREIN SHALL LIMIT THE OBLIGATION OF CARDFUNDER TO PAY YOU FOR THE BALANCE ON A PREPAID CARD PURCHASED FROM YOU BY CARDFUNDER. THE LIMITATIONS OF DAMAGES SET FORTH ABOVE ARE FUNDAMENTAL ELEMENTS OF THE BASIS OF THE BARGAIN BETWEEN CARDFUNDER AND YOU.
These Terms and any action related thereto will be governed by the laws of the State of Alabama without regard to its conflict of laws provisions.
Agreement to Arbitrate
You and CardFunder agree that any dispute, claim or controversy arising out of or relating to these Terms or the breach, termination, enforcement, interpretation or validity thereof or the use of the Services or Content (collectively, "Disputes") will be settled by binding arbitration, except that each party retains the right: (i) to bring an individual action in small claims court and (ii) to seek injunctive or other equitable relief in a court of competent jurisdiction to prevent the actual or threatened infringement, misappropriation or violation of a party's copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets, patents or other intellectual property rights (the action described in the foregoing clause (ii), an "IP Protection Action"). The exclusive jurisdiction and venue of any IP Protection Action will be the state and federal courts located in the Jefferson County Alabama and each of the parties hereto waives any objection to jurisdiction and venue in such courts. You acknowledge and agree that you and CardFunder are each waiving the right to a trial by jury or to participate as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class action or representative proceeding. Further, unless both you and CardFunder otherwise agree in writing, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person's claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of any class or representative proceeding. If this specific paragraph is held unenforceable, then the entirety of this "Dispute Resolution" section will be deemed void. Except as provided in the preceding sentence, this "Dispute Resolution" section will survive any termination of these Terms.
The arbitration will be administered by the American Arbitration Association ("AAA") in accordance with the Commercial Arbitration Rules and the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes (the "AAA Rules") then in effect, except as modified by this "Dispute Resolution" section. (The AAA Rules are available at www.adr.org/arb_med or by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879.) The Federal Arbitration Act will govern the interpretation and enforcement of this Section.
A party who desires to initiate arbitration must provide the other party with a written Demand for Arbitration as specified in the AAA Rules. (The AAA provides a form Demand for Arbitration at http://www.adr.org/aaa/ShowPDF?doc=ADRSTG_004175 and a separate form for California residents at http://www.adr.org/aaa/ShowPDF?doc=ADRSTG_015822. ) The arbitrator will be either a retired judge or an attorney licensed to practice law and will be selected by the parties from the AAA's roster of arbitrators. If the parties are unable to agree upon an arbitrator within seven (7) days of delivery of the Demand for Arbitration, then the AAA will appoint the arbitrator in accordance with the AAA Rules. Arbitration Location and Procedure Unless you and CardFunder otherwise agree, the arbitration will be conducted in Jefferson County Alabama. If your claim does not exceed $10,000, then the arbitration will be conducted solely on the basis of the documents that you and CardFunder submit to the arbitrator, unless you request a hearing or the arbitrator determines that a hearing is necessary. If your claim exceeds $10,000, your right to a hearing will be determined by the AAA Rules. Subject to the AAA Rules, the arbitrator will have the discretion to direct a reasonable exchange of information by the parties, consistent with the expedited nature of the arbitration.
The arbitrator will render an award within the time frame specified in the AAA Rules. The arbitrator's decision will include the essential findings and conclusions upon which the arbitrator based the award. Judgment on the arbitration award may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof. The arbitrator's award of damages must be consistent with the terms of the "Limitation of Liability" section above as to the types and amounts of damages for which a party may be held liable. The arbitrator may award declaratory or injunctive relief only in favor of the claimant and only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by the claimant's individual claim. The arbitrator will have the authority to award attorney's fees to the prevailing party in the arbitration award.
Your responsibility to pay any AAA filing, administrative and arbitrator fees will be solely as set forth in the AAA Rules.

By rejecting any change, you are agreeing that you will arbitrate any Dispute between you and CardFunder in accordance with the provisions of this "Dispute Resolution" section as of the date you first accepted these Terms (or accepted any subsequent changes to these Terms).
Entire Agreement. These Terms constitute the entire and exclusive understanding and agreement between CardFunder and you regarding the Services and Content, and these Terms supersede and replace any and all prior oral or written understandings or agreements between CardFunder and you regarding the Services and Content. If for any reason a court of competent jurisdiction finds any provision of these Terms invalid or unenforceable, that provision will be enforced to the maximum extent permissible and the other provisions of these Terms will remain in full force and effect.
No Assignment. You may not assign or transfer these Terms, by operation of law or otherwise, without CardFunder's prior written consent. Any attempt by you to assign or transfer these Terms, without such consent, will be null and of no effect. CardFunder may freely assign or transfer these Terms without restriction. Subject to the foregoing, these Terms will bind and inure to the benefit of the parties, their successors and permitted assigns.
Notices. Any notices or other communications provided by CardFunder under these Terms, including those regarding modifications to these Terms, will be given: (i) by CardFunder via email; or (ii) by posting to the Services. For notices made by email, the date of receipt will be deemed the date on which such notice is transmitted.

1500 1st Ave N Suite D101
Birmingham, AL 35203
No Waiver. CardFunder's failure to enforce any right or provision of these Terms will not be considered a waiver of those rights. The waiver of any such right or provision will be effective only if in writing and signed by a duly authorized representative of CardFunder. Except as expressly set forth in these Terms, the exercise by either party of any of its remedies under these Terms will be without prejudice to its other remedies under these Terms or otherwise.
Severability. If the application of any provision or provisions of these Terms to any particular facts or circumstances is held to be invalid or unenforceable by any court of competent jurisdiction, then (a) the validity and enforceability of such provision or provisions as applied to any other particular facts or circumstances and the validity of other provisions of these Terms will not in any way be affected or impaired thereby, and (b) such provision or provisions will be reformed without further action by the parties hereto and only to the extent necessary to make such provision or provisions valid and enforceable when applied to such particular facts and circumstances, except where otherwise expressly provided above.
Relationship of the Parties. These Terms will not be construed as creating an agency, partnership, joint venture or any other form of association, for tax purposes or otherwise, between the parties; neither party nor its agents have any authority of any kind to bind the other party in any respect whatsoever. For clarity, nothing in these Terms prevents CardFunder from using subcontractors in connection with provision of the Services and you agree that CardFunder may use such subcontractors.
