You further represent and warrant that you will only use a credit card, debit card, or bank account that you are fully authorized to use.

Accounts

During the card ordering or activation process you will be asked to use or select a unique password for future use of our Websites. You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of the password and account, and are fully responsible for all activities that occur under that password. By logging into the Websites, you represent and warrant that: (i) you are the customer who registered for the services; (ii) that you are using the services only for permitted purposes; (iii) you are not a competitor of The SpendSmart Payments Company, or agent thereof; (iv) you will immediately notify us of any unauthorized use of the password or account or any other breach of security; and (v) you will ensure that you exit from your account at the end of each session.

Types of Accounts

Teen Account

Users who make a request for a SpendSmart Card, or register their email address after their Parent has ordered them a SpendSmart Card will create a Teen Account. This type of account will allow you to view your transaction history, current card balance, related Givers, change your alert settings, and send funding requests. By logging on and using our service, you agree that, in addition to the terms listed above, you will not use The SpendSmart Payments Company to harass or spam the mailbox of a Giver. Teens under the age of 18 agree to follow any additional rules set by their parent(s) or legal guardian(s).

Giver Account

Users who respond to a request for a payment through SpendSmart Card will need to create a basic Giver account. A basic Giver account is available to any individual who responds to a request from a Teen or Parent. This type of account will allow you to view your transaction history and any funding request for each Teen who has contacted you through SpendSmart Card. Your billing information is always private; however, YOUR LOAD HISTORY, NAME, AND COMMENTS WILL BE VIEWABLE BY PARENTS. This is a safety measure to ensure that parents or legal guardians for Teens under the age of 18 see from whom their Teens are receiving money, and in what amounts. For more information, please see our Privacy Policy. By logging on and using our service, you represent and warrant that, in addition to the terms above: (i) you have legal permission to contact the Teen; (ii) you will not use The SpendSmart Payments Company to harass or spam the mailbox of a Teen.

Parent Account

The Parent creates a Parent Account upon ordering a SpendSmart Card for a Teen. Any Giver can also have a Parent account if the Parent who ordered the SpendSmart Card approves them to have a guardian status on the account. This type of account enables you to, view all Teen transactions on the SpendSmart Card, lock and unlock the card, receive transaction notifications, process value loads, set up allowances, order replacements for lost/stolen/damaged cards, and cancel the SpendSmart Card. You can view all card loads from other Givers. IF A GIVER HAS FALSELY CLAIMED TO BE A PARENT/LEGAL GUARDIAN OF YOUR TEEN, OR IF YOUR TEEN HAS CONTACTED ANYONE WHO IS NOT ALLOWED CONTACT WITH HIM/HER, PLEASE CONTACT US IMMEDIATELY AT info@spendsmartcard.com. By logging in and using our service as a parent/guardian, you represent and warrant, in addition to the terms above, that: (i) you are the parent or legal guardian of the Teen; (ii) you will not use SpendSmart Card to harass or spam the mailbox of any Givers. For more information, please see our Privacy Policy.

Authorizations During Card Ordering

When a Parent orders a SpendSmart Card, we will authorize your credit or debit card for the initial card load amount as part of the order process. If you choose not to or are unable to complete the card order, The SpendSmart Payments Company will void the authorization, and we will not charge your credit or debit card.

Refunds

When you cancel a SpendSmart Card, we will refund you for any remaining balance, less any applicable fees. Please allow up to 30 days before a refund is issued, to allow for pending authorizations to be returned to the card balance so that it can be refunded to you in full. SpendSmart Card will issue refunds electronically, whenever possible. If SpendSmart Card determines that it cannot refund you electronically, we will mail you a check to the most recent address on file.
