1.1 Stripe Agreements.

2. Use.

2.1. Generally. The Verifications Services and specific End User Data are made available to you for the sole purpose of enabling you to verify your End Users’ bank accounts as required under applicable Law and for any charges expressly authorized by End Users. You agree to not directly or indirectly sell, license, or otherwise make available to a third party any End User Data or the Verification Services. Stripe, and any third party engaged by Stripe, will act as your processor (e.g., service provider) for the purposes of facilitating your access to the requested End User Data. You acknowledge that Stripe will also request consent from End Users to separately collect, use and store End User Data as an independent controller of such data in accordance with the terms available at (“End User Terms”).

2.2. End User Consent. You will provide notices to, and obtain consents from, End Users as required by applicable Law to verify your End Users’ bank accounts and to maintain records thereof. You will assist Stripe in obtaining End User Consent pursuant to the means provided by Stripe. You will not use or make public or End-User facing statements concerning End User Data that contradict these Terms, the End User Terms or the Stripe Privacy Policy.

2.3 Responsibilities. As between you and us, you are responsible for providing the interface to End Users and any assistance and support to End Users in connection with the Verification Services. If a data subject notification is required, including a data breach or updates to Stripe's End User Terms or the Stripe Privacy Policy, you will reasonably assist Stripe in notifying End Users, including by way of email to those End Users. When requested by us, you will provide us with reasonable information relating to an End User’s complaint or issue that is raised to us or a Data Source, including any records of notices or consents to verify the End User’s bank accounts. Stripe may request information regarding you, your use of the bank verification services and related information, and your security procedures and practices for such information, and you will respond with accurate and complete information.
