Stripe Checkout User Terms of Service
Last Updated: June 18, 2013
These Stripe Checkout User Terms of Service are a legal agreement between Stripe, Inc. (“Stripe,” “we” or “us”) and you, the user of the Stripe Checkout service (“you”). By using the Stripe Checkout service, you agree to be bound by these terms and conditions.
The Stripe Checkout service (“Stripe Checkout”) is technology that makes it easier for merchants on the Internet (“Merchants”) to collect payment from individuals like you. Stripe Checkout also makes it easy for you to store a credit card or debit card (“Payment Credentials”) with Stripe for use across the websites of Merchants who’ve chosen to enable it.
Using Stripe Checkout.
When you check out on the website of a Merchant that has Stripe Checkout enabled, we will ask you if you’d like us to remember you. When you allow us to remember you, Stripe will store certain identifying information, such as a password, your email address, or your mobile phone number (“Stripe Credentials”), and your Payment Credentials. The advantage of remembering you is that it will make your checkout quicker and easier if you come back to the same website, or to any of the other websites that use Stripe (a “Checkout Enabled Site”)–this can be especially handy when you’re on a mobile device or don’t have your credit card in front of you.
If you send us text messages, or have us send you one, don’t forget that your carrier might charge you for that.
Stripe Checkout is a way of storing your Payment Credentials, but it doesn’t change anything else about your relationship with the Merchant you’re paying or your bank or credit card company. You are ultimately responsible for the purchases you make using Stripe Checkout. Also, the Merchant is the one responsible for providing you the goods or services that you purchase using Stripe Checkout, not Stripe. Stripe will use our reasonable efforts to keep your Payment Credentials secure.
If you want to delete your Payment Credentials, stop storing information using Stripe Checkout, or change your settings, you can send an email to email@example.com.
Representations and Warranties.
By using Stripe Checkout you represent and warrant that you are at least 18 years of age and that you will not use Stripe Checkout for any fraudulent, unlawful or abusive purpose.
