FURTHER, THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS CONTAIN AN AGREEMENT TO ARBITRATE, WHICH REQUIRES THAT YOU AND JOUST ARBITRATE CERTAIN CLAIMS BY BINDING, INDIVIDUAL ARBITRATION INSTEAD OF GOING TO COURT AND LIMITS CLASS ACTION CLAIMS (SEE “AGREEMENT TO ARBITRATE”).

The Joust Platform may also periodically become unavailable due to maintenance or malfunction of computer equipment or for other reasons.
The Services offered on the Joust Platform are intended only for U.S. residents only. The Services are not for use by anyone under the age of 18. They shall not be considered a solicitation to any person in any jurisdiction where such solicitation would be illegal.

b. Subscription Fees. We may institute subscription fees in the future. We agree to provide you with notice before we institute subscription fees by sending you an email to the email address in your User Profile.

Except as otherwise expressly provided for in these Terms and Conditions, any changes to our fees (subscription or otherwise) will take effect following notice to you.
c. Change in Fees. We reserve the right to change our subscription plans, fees related thereto (if any), and adjust pricing for the Services or any components thereof in any manner and at any time as we may determine in our sole and absolute discretion.

You also agree to pay all applicable fees for such Services (including, without limitation, periodic fees for subscriptions and any amounts you have elected to pay voluntarily) as they become due plus all applicable related taxes.

Our agent for notice of claims of copyright infringement can be reached as follows:
Joust Labs, Inc.
383 Corona Street
Denver, CO 80218
You acknowledge that if you fail to comply with all of the requirements above, your notice may not be valid.
You understand and agree not to use the Joust Platform or Services to:
You agree that you will not, directly or indirectly:
c. If we suspect an unauthorized transaction relating to any Joust Account or that the account was created based on fraudulent information or for a fraudulent or illegal purpose, we may freeze the account pending further investigation and will notify you of the end result of that investigation.
a. Joust Visa® Business Debit Card Account: When you apply for and open a Joust Visa® Business Debit Card, the associated account funds will be held by nbkc bank, member FDIC. The nbkc bank Visa® Business Debit Card is issued solely by nbkc bank, and Joust is not responsible for any decisions or actions made by nbkc bank in its capacity as the Joust Visa® Business Debit Card issuer.
b. Transfer and Withdrawal Limits: Certain limits on transfers to and withdrawals from your Joust Accounts may be imposed pursuant to terms with our Partner Banks and in connection with Joust’s ordinary course fraud and security management system. Inquiries regarding up-to-date transfer and withdrawal limits should be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org with respect to your Joust Account.
By accepting these terms and conditions you authorize Joust and/or our third party partners to initiate ACH credit and/or debit transactions between your Funding Source and Joust Accounts. These transactions will either be initiated in the Joust App by you (“Transfers”) or initiated by Joust including, without limitation, transactions based on Rules you have set up through the Services or with respect to payment of fees and/or other amounts owing by your use of the Joust Platform and the Services. The frequency and amount of these ACH credit and/or debit transactions will be determined by your Transfers or your Rules. Periodic ACH transactions will be generated by Joust to move funds from your Funding Source to your Joust Account (as applicable) based on the Rules you have established. Transfers will be processed when authorized by your entry.
You further authorize Joust and/or our third party partners to initiate ACH credit and/or debit transactions to or from your Funding Source and/or Joust Accounts to correct any erroneous credit or debit activity or to pay any return fees described in Section 3(f) of these Terms and Conditions.
You understand that this authorization will remain in full force and effect until you notify Joust that you wish to revoke this authorization. You understand that Joust requires at least three (3) business days’ prior notice in order to cancel this authorization. You agree not to initiate any transfers which would cause any of your Joust Accounts to have a deficit.
The Funding Source verification process is in place to ensure a Funding Source is compatible with Joust and supports ACH transfers; to prevent Clients’ goals from being disclosed to unknown funding sources, and to verify external Funding Source account ownership.
One of two methods are used to successfully verify a Funding Source:
(1) Two small credit transactions will be sent for processing to the external Funding Source. The amounts of those credits will then be immediately debited out of the Funding Source. Clients will need to verify the external Funding Source by entering the deposit amounts in the required fields provided in their Joust Accounts. Clients will be responsible for any fees or penalties assessed by a financial institution that may occur by validating this funding source; OR
(2) the external funding source will be accessed by our data integration partner and ownership and ACH support will be verified.
Joust employs third parties in order to provide its Services to you. Third party services are used to, among other things: verify your identity, speed up and streamline on-boarding, issue cards, process payment transactions, retrieve financial data and aggregate data. These third parties will have access to only that information provided by you to Joust that is needed by them to execute specific processes necessary to provide you with the Services or with the bank account services you register for in connection with the Joust Platform or Joust Visa Debit Card. Joust may employ different or additional third parties for these Services from time to time in its sole discretion. In addition, to the extent that Joust is permitted to undertake any action under these Terms and Conditions, you agree that we may permit our third party financial institutions or subcontractors to undertake such action on our behalf.
You agree Joust may access any account you have set up through our third parties in connection with the Services. We may use that information to in order to provide you with the Joust Platform and Services, to develop our products and services, and for our internal business purposes.
As part of the Joust Platform, Joust will retrieve information from Your Bank Accounts and your Account Information. Joust works with one or more online financial service providers to access this Account Information. Joust makes no effort to review the Account Information for any purpose, including but not limited to accuracy, legality or non-infringement. Joust is not responsible for the products and services offered by or on third-party sites.
Joust cannot always foresee or anticipate technical or other difficulties which may result in failure to obtain data or loss of data, personalization settings or other service interruptions. Joust cannot assume responsibility for the timeliness, accuracy, deletion, non-delivery or failure to store any user data, communications or personalization settings. For example, when displayed through the Joust Platform, Account Information is only as fresh as the time shown, which reflects when the information is obtained from such sites. Such information may be more up-to-date when obtained directly from the relevant sites.
a. Automatic Alerts. Joust may from time to time provide automatic alerts. Automatic alerts may be sent to you following certain changes made online to your User Profile or your Accounts. Electronic alerts will be sent to the email address or mobile number you have provided. If your email address or your mobile number changes, you are responsible for informing us of that change.

Joust may terminate your Joust Account at any time upon notice to the email address provided by you as part of your User Profile.

Any items that attempt to post to a Joust Account following closure thereof (whether by you or Joust) will be returned “Account Closed.”
If you do not make use of the Services for a designated amount of time, applicable laws may require Joust to report these funds in your account as unclaimed property. Should this occur, we may try to locate you at the contact information you provided to us. If our attempts fail and we cannot locate you, we may be required, depending on state law, to report your funds as unclaimed property.

These Terms and Conditions, and your relationship with Joust under these Terms and Conditions, shall be governed by the laws of the State of Colorado without regard to conflicts of law principles. Any dispute with Joust, or its officers, directors, employees, agents or affiliates, arising under or in relation to these Terms and Conditions shall be resolved exclusively through arbitration as set forth in the Section below, except with respect to imminent harm requiring temporary or preliminary injunctive relief in which case Joust may seek such relief in any court with jurisdiction over the parties. You understand that, in return for agreement to this provision, Joust is able to offer the Service at the terms designated. Your assent to this provision is an indispensable consideration to these Terms and Conditions.
Notwithstanding any provision in these Terms of Service to the contrary, you and we agree that if we make any change to the arbitration procedures set forth herein (other than a change to any notice address or website link provided herein) in the future, that change shall not apply to any claim that was filed in a legal proceeding against Joust prior to the effective date of the change. Moreover, if we seek to terminate the arbitration procedures from these Terms of Service, such termination shall not be effective until 30 days after the version of these Terms of Service not containing the arbitration procedures is posted to the Website, and shall not be effective as to any claim that was filed in a legal proceeding against Joust prior to the effective date of removal.
These Arbitration provisions will survive the termination of Your relationship with Joust.

to be bound by the National Automated Clearing House Association operating rules and any applicable local ACH operating rules.

You agree that Joust and/or its third party service providers may request and that Joust and/or its third party service providers may make ACH transfers solely by reference to the account number of the recipient. Joust and its third party service providers shall not be obligated to determine whether there is a discrepancy relating to names or account numbers in transfers between any of your Joust Accounts and your Funding Source.
If any portion of these Terms and Conditions is deemed invalid, unlawful, void or for any reason unenforceable by any arbitrator or court of competent jurisdiction, these Terms and Conditions as a whole shall not be deemed unlawful, void or unenforceable, but only that portion of these Terms and Conditions that is unlawful, void or unenforceable shall be stricken from these Terms and Conditions, and that portion deemed invalid, unlawful, void, or unenforceable shall not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions.
You agree that if Joust does not exercise or enforce any legal right or remedy which is contained in these Terms and Conditions, this will not be taken to be a formal waiver of Joust’s rights and that those rights or remedies will still be available to Joust.
All covenants, agreements, representations and warranties made in these Terms and Conditions shall survive your acceptance of these Terms and Conditions and the termination of these Terms and Conditions.
These Terms and Conditions represent the entire understanding and agreement between you and Joust regarding the subject matter of the same, and supersede all other previous agreements, including any prior version of the Joust Terms and Conditions.
