4. WEBSITE OPERATION
The User shall have access to the Website by entering his or her email address and personal password or other authentication mechanism provided by Paygol (hereinafter, the “Password”). The User shall be obliged to keep his or her Password confidential. Given the foregoing, the User shall be solely and exclusively responsible for all the operations made under his or her account on the Website.
When carrying out a transaction on the Website, the User shall issue a collection order directed to Paygol, so that Paygol collects the funds on his or her behalf, stating the following: email address and full name of the End Customer, the sum to be collected and a description of the reason of the collection (hereinafter, the “Collection Order”).
The Website will allow the End Customer to pay with his or her payment method of choice from the options provided by Paygol, from a device connected to the Internet.
Once the payment is completed by the End Customer, Paygol will notify the User that they payment has been carried out successfully via email to the email address stated in the Registration Form.
Transactions processed in a different currency to the one set up on the User’s account shall be subject to currency fluctuations and conversion costs. Given the foregoing, Paygol shall use a spread for the conversion of the currencies of each country. These spreads vary and are based on multiple factors that include, amongst others: the currency’s volatility, the amount of time that the funds were exposed to this volatility, bank conversion rates, etc.
The real sums collected through the Website (hereinafter, the “Collected Money”) and the amounts available discounting the Fee, payments owed to Paygol and other costs linked to the transaction, such as – for example – taxes (hereinafter, the Collected Money, discounting the Fee, payments owed to Paygol and other applicable charges, the “Money Due”), shall be reflected on the online Website, in the currency defined by the User in the Registration Form.
According to the manner set forth in the Registration Form, the User may request Paygol to deposit the Money Due, within the timeframe agreed upon by the parties. When the payment day is reached, in the absence of problems arising from third party actions, fortuitous events, force majeure, Personal Data errors, problems with banks, and any other obstacle beyond Paygol’s control, the Website will deposit the Money Due in the User’s bank account. Simultaneously, Paygol will send an email, to the User’s registered email address, informing that the payment order has been issued and will record this event on the Website.

5. PAYMENT AND COLLECTION MANAGEMENT POWER OF ATTORNEY
a.Irrevocable Power of Attorney. The User grants an irrevocable power of attorney to Paygol so that it can carry out the collection of money informed by the Merchant by the Collection Order it issued when using the Website. Paygol shall deposit the sums of money that it obtains from the End Customer in the bank account registered on the User’s Registration Form, previously discounting the service fees charged by Paygol for the collection services, any other amounts owed to Paygol, and any charges associated to the transaction, such as taxes, that Paygol is legally required to withhold.
Paygol shall render an account of the exercise of the power of attorney indicated above by sending the User a notification stating the information about the transaction, such as the date, Collected Money, Money Due, amongst others. Said account will be considered accepted by Paygol if, within 5 business days, the User does not express any objections.
b.Scope of liability. Paygol shall not be liable and shall not guarantee the fulfilment of the obligations that User may have entered into amongst each other or with third parties regarding the payment and collection done on the Website. The User acknowledges and accepts that by carrying out transactions with other Users, End Customers or third parties, he or she is doing so of his or her own volition and under his or her own risk and responsibility. Paygol shall not, under any circumstances, be responsible for any income loss, or any other damages that a User may experience on account of the transactions carried out on the Website, that is not attributable to Paygol’s fault or wilful misconduct.
Given that Paygol is foreign to the obligation that originated the Collection order, it shall not be responsible for the causes, sums, or any other circumstances that are linked to said Collection Order. The same applies to the existence, quality, quantity, operation, state, integrity, or legitimacy of the goods or services offered, acquired, or disposed of by the Merchants. The Website only facilitates the collection of the payments generated in a transaction prior to the service it provides.
If one or more Users or a third-party file any type of complaint or legal action against another or other Merchants, each and every one of the Users involved in said complaints and legal actions relieves Paygol, its related entities, its directors, manages, employees, agents, operators, representatives and attorneys of all and any responsibility. Likewise, the User expressly waives the right to exercise the legal actions of any nature that he or she may be entitled to, unless there has been gross negligence or willful misconduct on Paygol’s behalf.
6. PAYMENT OPTIONS
The payment solutions offered by Paygol to its Users are the following:
This is the integration of a payment screen on the User’s website. This method allows the User to add logos and wallpapers to make it into a familiar experience for its End Customers, so as to avoid abandoning the payment, considering that branding is important for them to feel comfortable and secure whilst they carry out the payment.
This service is like Web Checkout, but with a White Label. This means that the End Customer does not abandon the Merchant’s website when paying, and has no direct contact with Paygol – thus becoming invisible to the End Customer in this process. In this case, the notifications will be sent directly and instantly to the End Customer’s server.
This provides the User with the possibility of charging the End Customer without an integrated system. It is a technological solution designed to send a payment request to the End Customer via email (hereinafter, the “Payment Link”).
The User may send multiple Payment Links within minutes. Additionally, the Merchant may share the Payment Link on various social media Websites, such as WhatsApp, Instagram, Facebook, etc., in order to carry out a sale.
The User hereby accepts paying Paygol a commission for the services he or she uses (hereinafter, the “Fees”), according to the list of Fees state in the “Payment Methods” section of the Website. Said list of Fees will be considered part of these Terms and Conditions.
Fee Modifications. The User hereby expressly accepts that the fees stated in the “Payment Methods” section may be modified by Paygol, informing said changes to the Users at the email address they provided in the Registration Form, which shall be accepted when entering the Website.
In certain cases that will be individually assessed by Paygol, the User may agree on special Fees with Paygol. In these cases, a change will be made to the “Payment Methods” section where the updated Fees will be shown.
The User expressly authorizes Paygol to offset all sums of money owed to Paygol against the amounts payable by Paygol to the User for any transaction made.
The fact that Paygol does not carry out the aforementioned withholding does not release the Merchant from its obligation to pay the agreed Fee.
Any special request made by the Merchant, that is not included in Paygol’s basic operating services, shall have a special Fee that the parties must agree upon.
The parties hereby state that the User shall take responsibility for the payment of direct, indirect, fiscal, or municipal taxes, as well as any other charges made due to the sales, services, and publicity or general marketing, and – if these amounts are charged or must be withheld by Paygol – Paygol shall offset this amount with any amount of money it may owe the User.
8. CREDITS AND SETTLEMENTS
Paygol shall send the Money Due to the bank account stated by the Merchant in the Registration Form. This money transfer shall be carried out in the timeframe agreed upon by the parties when creating the account and prior to the first operation the Merchant carries out on the Website.
Paygol shall issue a funds settlement (hereinafter, the “Settlement”) every time it transfers the funds to the Users due to a Collection Order.
If problems arise from fortuitous events, force majeure, or third-party actions, that lead to postponing the date of the transfer, Paygol shall send the User a notice through the Website (hereinafter “Heat Ticket”) informing the new estimated date of the transfer.
Paygol will carry out all the reasonable efforts to ensure the fulfillment of the aforementioned deadlines. However, the User hereby understands that, due to certain factors – most of which are outside Paygol’s control – delays may occur, and the User therefore exempts Paygol of all and any liability for any inconvenience or damage resulting from delays that are not attributable to wilful misconduct or fault of Paygol.
This Agreement will be in effect indefinitely.
The parties may end this Agreement at any time, without stating a cause, by simply providing written notice of no less than thirty (30) calendar days, without requiring a prior private or judicial request and without requiring a judicial ruling or process to do so. The anticipated termination of this Agreement prevents the parties from claiming the payment of any relevant sanctions, compensations, or penal clauses, unless the sums owed at the time of the termination and any other sum of money accrued after termination and is borne by the User.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, Paygol may end the Agreement when one or several of the following clauses have taken place:
a.When a User makes improper or malicious use, actual or alleged, of the Website, such as maliciously and improperly intervening the Website affecting the security measures implemented and its normal and proper functioning or performing transactions that are against the law or these Terms and Conditions;
b.Death or declaration of absolute incapacity of the User;

d.Inactivity or lack of use of the Website for over one year;
e.Incurring in aggravating or offensive behaviour against the Website’s staff;
In this case, Paygol shall communicate the termination of the User Agreement by email, to the address recorded on the Registration Form or the one updated after, with at least 15 days’ notice, or the notice required by the legal and administrative provisions in force.
If Paygol does not exercise the aforementioned powers, it does not imply waived to exercise them in the future.
It is expressly stated that the User accepts that the occurrence or suspected occurrence of any of the foregoing clauses enables Paygol to proceed to the immediate suspension and blocking of the Website to the User in question.
