User account, password, security and electronic account services.
Definitions. The following definitions govern the terms of this Paragraph 3 and as used elsewhere in these Terms:
Business Day means every day except Saturdays and Sundays and federal holidays.
Payment Account means your checking, savings or credit card account from which Hostme bill payments for your Account(s) may be made by you. Hostme recommends that you confirm with your banking institution any fees that you may be changed for bill payments from your Payment Account before designating a banking account as a Payment Account.
Payee means Hostme or its subsidiary to which you direct a payment.
Payment Instructions means the information provided by you for a bill payment to be made to Payee (i.e., banking account number, ABA number, payment date, payment amount, and any additional information).
Payment Due Date means the Business Day of your choice and as designated by you upon which your payment will be received by Payee and your Payment Account will be debited. Note: Your Payment Due Date may be no later than the "Due Date" set by Hostme for your most current bill.
Online account access. For certain types of features available now or in the future through the Services, including Online Account Access features (the "Online Service"), we require the use of encryption technologies provided for your protection and/or your use of a user identification name ("UserID") and password after setting up a user account ("User Account"). For self-enrollment, you must provide Account-specific information to authenticate yourself (e.g., Account owner name, restaurant/business name, address, phone number, email address, etc.). In these Terms, "you" and "your" refer to each person, or, if applicable, the entity who is an owner, signer, or has unrestricted access to a User Account and each person that uses the Online Service with your permission ("Authorized User"). You may never use another person's User Account and/or UserID without permission. When your Online Service is linked to one or more Accounts, Hostme may act on the oral, written, or electronic instructions of any authorized signer regarding your service for those Accounts. It is your responsibility to notify Hostme if an Authorized User should no longer be given access to an Account through the Online Service.
User account and password. We use reasonable precautions to protect the privacy of your UserID, password and User Account information by utilizing a Secure Socket Layer ("SSL") connection. Accordingly, your UserID, password and User Account information are encrypted using an SSL connection and are not expected to be read in an intelligible form as they travel to the Website. You, however, are ultimately responsible for protecting your UserID, password and User Account information from disclosure to third parties, and you are not permitted to circumvent the use of required encryption technologies. You are required to take reasonable precautions to safeguard your UserID and password. You agree to never leave your computer unattended while using the Online Service and to always exit the Online Service by clicking on "Log Out." You also agree to immediately notify Hostme of any unauthorized use of your UserID, password and/or User Account, or any other breach of security by calling by +1-929-266-4678 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. You are solely responsible for any activity that occurs with respect to your User Account and UserID. While we provide certain encryption technologies and use other reasonable precautions to protect your confidential information and provide suitable security, we do not and cannot guarantee or warrant that information transmitted through the Internet is secure, or that such transmissions are free from delay, error, interception or interruption.
Reliance by Hostme. You authorize Hostme to rely on your UserID and password to identify you when you use the Online Service, and as signature authorization for any payment made using the Online Service. You acknowledge and agree that you are responsible for all payments you make using the Online Service and for paying any and all late charges or penalties. You also acknowledge and agree that if you permit another person or persons to use the Online Service or give them your UserID and/or password, you are responsible for any payment that person makes to your Account, even if the person exceeds your authorization. You agree that Hostme may comply with the Payment Instructions entered by any person using your UserID and Password, subject to the terms set forth more fully below in the Unauthorized Payments section of these Terms.
Security. Hostme is committed to protecting the security and confidentiality of information about you and your Account and User Account. Hostme uses, and may in the future use, several different security methods to protect your Account and User Account information, including:
- You can only access the Online Service with certain browsers that have high security standards.
- The Online Service will automatically log off if prolonged periods of inactivity occur.
Email and Online Message Center. When you enroll in the Online Service, you must designate a primary email address that will be used for receiving electronic communication. To the extent that Hostme maintains an online message center now or in the future, such exchange of communications shall be considered an electronic communication and may be utilized by Hostme for providing you notices pursuant to these Terms, as required by Applicable Law (as permitted) or generally regarding your Account(s) with Hostme. Hostme will NEVER send you email requesting confidential information such as Account numbers, usernames, or passwords and you should NEVER respond to any email requesting such information. If you receive such an email purportedly from Hostme, do not respond to the email and notify Hostme by calling +1-929-266-4678 or forwarding the email to email@example.com.
Usage of Electronic Communication. By your enrollment in the Online Service, you agree to receive these Terms and any disclosures or notices required by Applicable Law and all other communications electronically to the email address you designate in your account profile. You also agree that Hostme may respond to any communication you send to Hostme with an electronic communication, regardless of whether your original communication with Hostme was an electronic communication. Any electronic communication Hostme sends to you will be considered received within one (1) calendar day of the date such communication is sent by computer servers utilized by Hostme to the email address you designate in your account profile or posted to Hostme's online message center (if applicable). To the extent permissible under Applicable Law, any electronic communication you send to Hostme will not be effective until Hostme has had a reasonable opportunity to act on the electronic communication. You should not rely on electronic communication if you need to communicate with Hostme immediately and, in no event, should your sole method of communication with Hostme regarding any emergency be by electronic communication. Hostme strongly suggests that you report all matters requiring immediate attention to Hostme by calling +1-929-266-4678. Hostme may require you to provide written confirmation of any verbal or electronic notice of alleged error by Hostme.
Making payments. If and when Hostme provides payment options through its Website or a third party payment processing service, you authorize Hostme to debit your Payment Account and remit funds on your behalf to the Payee. When Hostme receives a Payment Instruction, you have authorized Hostme to debit your Payment Account and remit funds on your behalf so that the funds arrive as close as reasonably possible to the Payment Due Date as designated by you. You also authorize Hostme to credit your Payment Account for payments returned to you Hostme.
Insufficient funds to complete bill payment. You must have sufficient available funds in your Payment Account on the Payment Due Date. If your Payment Account has insufficient funds, the Bill Payment will not be completed. Should a Bill Payment fail because of insufficient funds in your Payment Account, an amount equal to Hostme's Returned Payment Fee then in effect will be applied to your Account.
Hostme's liability for failure to complete bill payments. If Hostme debits your Payment Account incorrectly, Hostme will be responsible for returning the improperly debited funds to your Payment Account. Hostme will not be liable to you or any third party for any other reason related to failure to complete Bill Payments.
Accurate information. In creating and using your User Account, you agree to: (i) provide true, accurate, current and complete information about yourself on any registration form required on the Services (such information being the "Registration Data"); and (ii) maintain and promptly update the Registration Data to keep it true, accurate, current and complete. If you provide any information that is untrue, inaccurate, not current or incomplete, or Hostme has reasonable grounds to suspect that such information is untrue, inaccurate, not current or incomplete, Hostme has the right to suspend or terminate your User Account and refuse any and all current or future use of your User Account.
Termination of account. Hostme reserves the right to terminate your use of the Online Service for any reason including but not limited to non-payment, late payments, misuse of the Services, or inactivity, and at any time without notice to you. You have the right to terminate your use of the Online Service by calling Hostme at +1-929-266-4678 or by writing to Hostme at the address provided at the end of these Terms. Any termination of your use of the Online Service, whether initiated by you or by Hostme, will not affect any of your or Hostme's rights and obligations under these Terms that have arisen before the effective date of such termination.
Related agreements. Your Account linked to the Online Service will also be governed by the agreements, disclosures, and other documents provided to you in connection with the opening of your Account, as they may be amended periodically. If any inconsistency exists between such other documentation and these Terms, then these Terms shall control to the extent of inconsistency.

HOSTME DOES NOT GUARANTEE THAT YOU WILL BE ABLE TO ACCESS OR USE THE SERVICES AT TIMES OR LOCATIONS OF YOUR CHOOSING, OR THAT HOSTME SHALL HAVE ADEQUATE CAPACITY FOR THE SERVICES AS A WHOLE OR IN ANY SPECIFIC GEOGRAPHIC AREA.
Indemnification. You agree to defend, indemnify and hold Hostme and its affiliates, subsidiaries, owners, members, managers, directors, officers, employees and agents harmless from and against any and all claims, demands, suits, proceedings, liabilities, judgments, losses, damages, expenses and costs (including without limitation reasonable attorneys' fees) assessed or incurred by Hostme, directly or indirectly, with respect to or arising out of: (i) your failure to comply with these Terms; (ii) your breach of your obligations under these Terms; (iii) your use of the rights granted hereunder, including without limitation any claims made by any third parties; (iv) any claims made by third parties with respect to their experiences, problems or issues with your restaurant and the Services; and/or (v) your violation of any third party right, including without limitation any copyright, property, or privacy right.
LIMITATION OF LIABILITY. HOSTME'S ENTIRE LIABILITY AND YOUR EXCLUSIVE REMEDY WITH RESPECT TO THE USE OF THE WEBSITE, THE APP AND/OR ANY SERVICE PROVIDED IN CONNECTION WITH THE SERVICES SHALL BE THE CANCELLATION OF YOUR USER ACCOUNT WITH HOSTME. IN NO EVENT WILL HOSTME BE LIABLE FOR ANY DIRECT, INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, EXEMPLARY, PUNITIVE OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES ARISING FROM YOUR USE OF THE SERVICES OR FOR ANY OTHER CLAIM RELATED IN ANY WAY TO YOUR USE OF THE SERVICES, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, (A) ERRORS, MISTAKES, OR INACCURACIES OF CONTENT, (B) PERSONAL INJURY OR PROPERTY DAMAGE, OF ANY NATURE WHATSOEVER, RESULTING FROM YOUR ACCESS TO AND USE OF THE SERVICES, (C) ANY UNAUTHORIZED ACCESS TO OR USE OF OUR COMPUTER SERVERS AND/OR ANY AND ALL PERSONAL INFORMATION AND/OR FINANCIAL INFORMATION STORED THEREIN, (D) ANY INTERRUPTION OR CESSATION OF TRANSMISSION TO OR FROM THE SERVICES, AND/OR (E) ANY VIRUSES, WORMS, TIME BOMBS, DROP DEAD DEVICES, TROJAN HORSES OR OTHER HARMFUL COMPONENTS THAT MAY BE TRANSMITTED TO OR THROUGH THE SERVICES BY ANY THIRD PARTY OR FOR ANY LOSS OR DAMAGE OF ANY KIND. BECAUSE SOME STATES OR JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OR LIMITATION OF LIABILITY FOR CONSEQUENTIAL OR INCIDENTAL DAMAGES, IN SUCH STATES OR JURISDICTIONS HOSTME'S LIABILITY WILL BE LIMITED TO THE GREATEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW.
