4.4 This Agreement applies to all transactions, negotiations and other communications occurring that are initiated or facilitated, in whole or in part, using Eved. While the Agreement establishes the general rules and procedures for such interactions via Eved, the specific terms and conditions of transactions entered into between such transacting parties (such as pricing, delivery, warranties, refunds and confidentiality) must be established and mutually agreed upon separately by such parties. All transactions conducted through Eved are intended to be carried out between businesses, and not individuals or consumers. To the extent permitted by law, you agree that your dealings with us and any transactions conducted through Eved are not intended to be subject to any consumer protection legislation.

Notwithstanding anything to the contrary, in order to enhance Eved and ensure that Buyers can find the products and services they are seeking, we reserve the right to modify your listing and description of the products and services in the event we believe, in our sole discretion, that such listing or description, including without limitation any categorization, location or type of such products and services does not accurately reflect the nature of the products or services offered. We cannot be held responsible for any Buyer's failure to comply with laws or regulations concerning their Content. Instead, Eved acts as a technology service that allows you to solicit and market products or services potential Buyers. We cannot, and do not, control whether any transaction will be completed. We are not responsible for payment or collection with respect to orders made or bids placed on Eved or with respect to products or services made available via Eved.

If you are a California resident, you waive your rights under California Civil Code §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." Residents of other states and nations waive their rights under analogous laws, statutes or regulations.
4.7 Eved is not responsible for credit card charge backs as a result of a billing dispute. All disputes must be resolved directly between you and the applicable Buyers.

If dispute is not resolved in Eved's favor, then Eved will retain those funds indefinitely. You must pursue the dispute directly with the Buyer and Eved shall have no liability.

6.1 Without limiting other remedies, we reserve the right to suspend and/or terminate your Merchant Account and/or your right to access and use Eved or Content, whether in whole or in part, if you violate this Agreement or any other terms or policies referenced herein, or if you otherwise create risk or possible legal exposure for us, pose an unacceptable credit or fraud risk to us, or provide any false, incomplete, inaccurate, or misleading information or otherwise engage in fraudulent or illegal conduct.
6.2 You may terminate this Agreement at any time by closing your Merchant Account at any time. Any pending transactions at the time you terminate your Merchant Account will be cancelled. Any funds that we are holding in custody for you at the time of closure, less any applicable fees, will be paid out to you, assuming all payout-related authentication requirements have been fulfilled. If an investigation is pending at the time you close your Merchant Account , we may hold your funds as described herein. If you are later determined to be entitled to some or all of the funds in dispute, we will release those funds to you.

Any termination of this Agreement does not relieve you of any obligations to pay any fees or costs accrued prior to the termination and any other amounts owed by you to us as provided in this Agreement.
7. Merchant Account
7.1 Eved allows you to accept payments from Buyers. Buyers may remit payment to you, and you may remit payment to Buyers via EvedPay, which deposits the payment directly into your Merchant Account or the Buyer’s account via an electronic bank transfer, less a merchant fee in accordance with the then-current posted rates for every payment processed via EvedPay (the “Merchant Fee”). All Merchant Fees are charged at the time the transaction is processed and is deducted first from your Merchant account payment or the Other Buyer’s account prior to transferring the funds to the applicable Merchant.
7.2 We are not a bank and do not offer banking services. Except for our limited role in processing payments, we are not involved in any underlying transaction between you and any Buyer. We take no responsibility for the quality, fitness, safety, reliability, legality of any transaction. We do not guaranty payment on behalf of any Buyer. You acknowledge that (a) we are acting on your behalf solely to process, administer and maintain funds as part of your Merchant Account, (b) we may use the services of one or more third party processors and/or financial institutions to process your transactions (each a "Processor"), and (c) no partnership, joint venture, employee-employer, franchisee-franchiser, creditor-debtor, escrow, or other fiduciary relationship is intended or created by the establishment of your Merchant Account or this Agreement. We are not your agent in connection with any transaction conducted by you, and we have no liability for, or relationship to, such transaction.
7.3 We will hold money that you collect from Buyers in your Merchant Account (your "Balance"). When you carry a Balance, your funds will be co-mingled and held with other participants' funds in one or more pooled accounts at one or more FDIC-insured banks by us on your behalf and for the benefit of you and other participants holding balances (each a "Pooled Account"). U.S. dollar balances held in the Pooled Account are eligible for FDIC pass-through insurance as determined by applicable law. We have sole discretion over the establishment and maintenance of any Pooled Account. We will hold the funds associated with your Merchant Account separate from our corporate funds, will not use your funds for our corporate purposes, will not voluntarily make the funds available to our creditors in the event of bankruptcy, and will not knowingly permit our creditors to attach the funds. You will not receive interest or any other earnings on any funds that we handle for you. As partial consideration for using Eved, you irrevocably assign to us all rights and legal interests to any interest and/or other earnings that may accrue or are attributable to our holding of your Balance in a Pooled Account or Reserve Account (described in Section 7.4).
7.4 We may require that you either maintain a minimum balance in your Merchant Account or establish a separate reserve account (a "Reserve Account") to secure the performance of your obligations under this Agreement. Without limiting the foregoing, we may require a Reserve Account in the event of a Chargeback or if you have a high rate of Chargebacks (described in Section 9), refunds, or complaints from Buyers. We may fund the Reserve Account through any or all of the following, in each case, at such times and in such amounts as determined by us to be sufficient to secure your obligations under this Agreement: (a) funds deposited by you at our reasonable request; (b) funds due to you; or (c) at your election, funds withdrawn by us from any Bank Account (defined Section 8.2) or account designated by you. You hereby (i) grant us a security interest in and lien on any and all funds held in any Reserve Account, and (ii) authorize us to make any withdrawals or debits from the Reserve Account, without prior notice to you, to collect amounts that you owe us or other users under this Agreement, including without limitation for any reversals of deposits or transfers made to your Merchant Account. You agree to execute any additional documentation required for us to perfect our security interest in any funds in the Reserve Account. This security interest survives for as long as we hold funds in your Reserve Account.
7.5 If there is no activity in your Merchant Account (including without limitation access or payment transactions) for at least two (2) years, consecutively, and you are currently holding a Balance, we will notify you by sending an e-mail to your registered e-mail address and give you the option of keeping your Merchant Account open and maintaining the Balance or withdrawing the Balance. If you do not respond to our notice within thirty (30) days, we will automatically close your Merchant Account and refund your Balance to you. If we cannot refund the Balance to you, we may be required to escheat your Balance to the State in which you reside. Your Balance may be available via your state’s unclaimed property administrator.
7.6 You will all times adhere to all applicable laws, rules, and regulations applicable to your use of Eved, including, without limitation, any acceptable use policies applicable to Eved. Without limiting the foregoing, you may not act as a payment intermediary, aggregator or service bureau or otherwise resell Eved on behalf of any third party, including without limitation the handling, processing, and transmission of funds for any third party. We may inspect your Merchant Account for any reason, including without limitation to investigate any alleged violation of this Agreement, our policies or any third-party complaints. In the event that we determine, in our sole discretion, that your conduct or actions (including, without limitation, your employees) are objectionable, unlawful, potentially infringing, or otherwise in violation of this Agreement or our policies, we may take any action that we deem appropriate and reasonable to protect our systems, facilities, users, or third parties. Such corrective action includes, but is not limited to: (a) issuing a warning; (b) immediately suspending or terminating Eved; and (c) restricting or prohibiting access to your Merchant Account. Subject to applicable law, we may access, use, and disclose transaction information about your use of Eved or your Merchant Account (including without limitation any transfers to your Merchant Account) to: (i) comply with law (e.g., a lawful subpoena); (ii) to enforce or apply our agreements with you; (iii) initiate, render, bill, and collect for Eved; (iv) protect our rights or property; or (v) protect other users from fraudulent, abusive, or unlawful use of Eved.
8.1 By registering for Eved, you authorize us to hold, receive, and disburse funds on your behalf in accordance with your payment instructions, subject to the terms of this Agreement. To process payment transactions that you authorize, we (or third parties acting on our behalf) may debit or credit (as appropriate) your Balance, or the U.S. checking or other ACH-enabled bank account that you registered with us (your "Bank Account"). If there is an error in the processing of any transaction described above, you authorize us to initiate debit or credit entries to your Balance or Bank Account, as applicable, to correct such error, provided that any such correction is made in accordance with applicable laws and regulations. If we are unable to debit the Bank Account you select for any reason, you authorize us to resubmit the debit, plus any applicable fees, to any other Bank Account or payment instrument that you have on file with us. Your authorizations will remain in full force and effect while you maintain your Merchant Account with us and for any Bank Account listed.
8.2 Funds for any given transaction will not be available until the transaction is deemed complete. As applicable, transactions will be deemed complete when the funds are received by us, including in the Pooled Account. Funds in your Account may be withdrawn only by direct deposit via ACH to your Bank Account. You must have a Bank Account to withdraw funds paid to you using Eved. We may restrict access to funds in your Merchant Account for the time that it takes for us to complete any pending investigation or resolve a pending dispute or as required by law or court order or if otherwise requested by law enforcement or any governmental entity.
8.3 Except as required by law, you are solely responsible for (a) compiling and retaining permanent records of all transactions and other data associated with your Merchant Account and your use of Eved, and (b) reconciling all payment activity to and from your Merchant Account and all other transactional information that is associated with your Merchant Account. Upon the termination of this Agreement for any reason, we will have no obligation to you to store, retain, report, or otherwise provide any copies of, or access to, any records, documentation or other information in connection with any transactions submitted by you through Eved.
8.4 You agree to cooperate with us to resolve complaints involving you. You will respond to our inquiries and deliver to us any information reasonably requested by us regarding any disputed transactions within ten (10) business days of our request. If a Buyer files a complaint, we may place the disputed amount on hold and you will not be able to withdraw the amount until the complaint is resolved. We may transfer the disputed amount to the Buyer as a Chargeback to you (as described in Section 9) if you fail to timely respond to a complaint or fail to honor any agreement for the resolution of a complaint. If a dispute arises between you and a Buyer, you release us (and our agents and employees) from any and all claims, demands, and any damages (actual and consequential) in any way connected with the dispute and the transaction. We have no obligation to, and cannot guarantee, we will resolve any disputes related to any transaction.
8.5 Prior to you being able to make your products, services and Content available to Buyers, you shall set and enter your prices to be charged for the products, services and Content you are offering. All prices shall be stated in advance before any party can purchase them.
8.6 We offer tools to help you conduct activities on Eved, such as offering for sale and selling your products and services and enabling you to invoice and collect payments. How you conduct your activities is your responsibility. We are not a party to your transaction and therefore not liable for it. You are solely responsible for your activities, including compliance with applicable laws and regulations, including without limitation any taxes related to the purchase or sale of products or services, collecting, reporting and remitting required taxes to relevant government authorities, and informing your buyer of required taxes, and providing them with compliant invoices as required by law. You also agree that any tax estimates, reporting or related materials, including invoicing that we may provide via Eved are for illustration purposes only, and you may not rely on them to comply with your tax or other legal and compliance obligations.
9. Transaction Reversals and Chargebacks
9.1 The amount of a transaction may be charged back or reversed to your Merchant Account (a "Chargeback") if the transaction (a) is disputed by the account holder, (b) is reversed for any reason by the Buyer's financial institution, (c) was not authorized or we have any reason to believe that the transaction was not authorized, or (d) is allegedly unlawful, suspicious, or in violation of the terms of this Agreement (including any policy).
9.2 For any transaction that results in a Chargeback, we may withhold the Chargeback amount in a Reserve Account. We may deduct the amount of any Chargeback and any associated fees, fines, or penalties assessed by our Processor, or processing financial institutions from your Merchant Account (including without limitation any Reserve Account), any proceeds due to you, your Bank Account, or other payment instrument registered with us. If you have pending or anticipated Chargebacks, we may block withdrawals or outgoing payments made from your Merchant Account. Further, if we reasonably believe that a Chargeback is likely with respect to any transaction submitted by or authorized by you or on your behalf, we may withhold from payments otherwise due to you under this Agreement until such time that: (a) a Chargeback is assessed due to a Buyer's complaint, in which case we will retain the funds; (b) the period of time under applicable law or regulation by which the Buyer may dispute that the transaction has expired; or (c) we determine that a Chargeback on the transaction will not occur. If we are unable to collect the Chargeback, you will pay us the full amount of the Chargeback immediately upon demand. You agree to pay all costs and expenses, including without limitation attorneys' fees and other legal expenses, incurred by or on behalf of us in connection with the collection of all account deficit balances unpaid by you.
9.3 If we determine that you are incurring an excessive amount of Chargebacks, we may establish controls or conditions governing your Merchant Account, including without limitation, by (a) establishing new processing fees, (b) creating a Reserve Account in an amount determined by us to cover anticipated Chargebacks and related fees, (c) limiting withdrawals, and (d) terminating or suspending Eved.
9.4 You agree to assist us when requested, at your expense, to investigate any transaction processed through Eved. We will request necessary information from you to contest the Chargeback. If the Chargeback is contested successfully, we will release the reserved funds to your Merchant Account. If a Chargeback is not successfully contested or you choose not to contest the Chargeback, we may recover the Chargeback amount as described in this Agreement. You acknowledge that your failure to timely assist us in investigating a transaction, including without limitation providing necessary documentation within seven (7) days of our request, may result in an irreversible Chargeback.
10. Payment Terms
10.1 You will pay to us the applicable fees specified in Eved or with respect to any transactions entered into by you. There are no refunds or prorations on Merchant Fees, dues or or other fees; no exceptions.
10.2 To the extent permitted by law, we may set off against the Balances or debit your Bank Account or other payment instrument in your Merchant Account for any obligation you owe us under this Agreement, including without limitation any Chargebacks. All fees are charged at the time we process a transaction and are deducted first from the transferred or collected funds and thereafter from the Balance in your Merchant Account. If you owe us an amount that exceeds your Balance, we may charge or debit a payment instrument registered in your Merchant Account. Your failure to fully pay amounts that you owe us will be a breach of this Agreement. You will be liable for our costs associated with collection in addition to the amount collected, including without limitation attorneys' fees, court costs, collection agency fees, and any applicable interest.
10.3 You are responsible for determining any and all taxes and duties, including without limitation, sales, use, transfer, value added, withholding, and other taxes and/or duties assessed, incurred, or required to be collected, paid, or withheld for any reason in connection with any request for or performance of Eved, your use of Eved, the transactions and related payment, or otherwise in connection with any action, inaction, or omission by you or any affiliate of yours, or any of your or their respective employees, agents, contractors, or representatives ("Taxes"). You also are responsible for collecting, withholding, reporting, and remitting correct Taxes to the appropriate tax authority. We are not obligated to determine whether Taxes apply and are not responsible for collecting, reporting, or remitting any Taxes arising from any transaction.
11.1 We own all right, title and interest in Eved, including but not limited to, all methods, processes, content, formats, designs and URLs, together with all inventions, patents, copyrights, trademarks and other intellectual property rights and derivative works and improvements pertaining thereto.

19. Dispute Resolution
19.1 Any dispute which is not resolved within ten (10) days after referral to the parties' senior executives shall at any time thereafter, at the initiation of either party, be submitted to binding arbitration which shall be the exclusive means for resolving any such disputes. THE PARTIES EACH AGREE THAT, EXCEPT AS MAY OTHERWISE BE SET FORTH HEREIN, THE SOLE AND EXCLUSIVE FORUM AND REMEDY FOR ANY AND ALL DISPUTES AND CLAIMS RELATING TO OR ARISING OUT OF EVED OR THIS AGREEMENT, SHALL BE FINAL AND BINDING ARBITRATION, except that, to the extent that either of us has in any manner infringed upon or violated or threatened to infringe upon or violate the other party's patent, copyright, trademark, or trade secret rights, then the parties acknowledge that arbitration is not an adequate remedy at law and that injunctive or other appropriate relief may be sought. Such arbitration shall be held in Chicago, Illinois, United States of America. Arbitration under this Agreement shall be conducted by the American Arbitration Association (the "AAA") under its Commercial Arbitration Rules and, in the case of consumer disputes, the AAA's Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes (the "AAA Consumer Rules") (collectively the "AAA Rules"). The allocation of costs and fees for such arbitration shall be determined in accordance with such AAA Rules and shall be subject to the limitations provided for in the AAA Consumer Rules (for consumer disputes). Arbitrators must be active members of the Illinois Bar or retired judges of the state or federal judiciary of the State of Illinois, with expertise in the substantive laws applicable to the subject matter of the dispute. Arbitrators must have specific experience in sourcing disputes of this kind and not have a relationship with either party. A panel of three (3) arbitrators will be selected by the parties, if the parties are unable to agree on the panel, the arbitrators will be appointed by the AAA administrator in accordance with these provisions. Any costs associated with the arbitration shall be borne by the non-prevailing party. All decisions of the arbitrators shall be binding on both parties. Judgment upon the award rendered by the arbitrators may be entered in any court having jurisdiction. THE PARTIES HEREBY KNOWINGLY AND VOLUNTARILY AND IRREVOCABLY WAIVE THEIR RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY and agree that if the foregoing binding arbitration provision is determined for any reason to be unenforceable or inapplicable to a particular dispute, then such dispute shall be decided solely by a judge, without the use of a jury, sitting in a court of competent jurisdiction. This binding arbitration and jury trial waiver provision shall survive termination of this Agreement. Nothing in this Agreement will prevent us from applying for injunctive relief in any court of competent jurisdiction. If each of the countries in which you will be performing the Agreement is a signatory to the New York Convention on the Recognition and Enforcement of Arbitral Awards, the arbitration award shall be enforceable under the convention in all relevant foreign jurisdictions.

Any legal action or proceeding relating to Eved or this Agreement which is not subject to such binding arbitration shall be instituted in a state court in Chicago or Cook County, Illinois, or in a federal court in the Northern District of Illinois.
