EXCEPT IF YOU OPT-OUT AND EXCEPT FOR CERTAIN TYPES OF DISPUTES DESCRIBED IN SECTION 18 BELOW, YOU AGREE THAT DISPUTES BETWEEN YOU AND US WILL BE RESOLVED BY BINDING, INDIVIDUAL ARBITRATION AND YOU WAIVE YOUR RIGHT TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION LAWSUIT OR CLASS-WIDE ARBITRATION.
Other aspects of the Services may be covered by other terms, conditions and agreements with Simba or third parties such as financial institutions.

IF YOU DO NOT AGREE WITH ALL OF THE TERMS OF THIS AGREEMENT, THEN YOU ARE EXPRESSLY PROHIBITED FROM ACCESSING AND/OR USING THE SERVICES AND YOU MUST DISCONTINUE ACCESS AND/OR USE IMMEDIATELY.
You must be at least eighteen (18) years of age to use the Services. By agreeing to this Agreement you represent and warrant to us: (i) that you are at least eighteen (18) years old; (ii) that you have not previously been suspended, removed or deactivated from the Services; (iii) that you are a legal resident of the United States; and (iv) that your registration and your use of the Services is in compliance with any and all applicable laws and regulations.

You further represent that you are the legal owner of, and that you are authorized to provide Simba with, all the User Information you provide in connection with the Services. We reserve the right to remove, reclaim, or change a Login ID you select if we determine, in our sole discretion, that such Login ID is inappropriate, obscene, or otherwise objectionable.
All information supplied during registration is used in accordance of the USA Patriot Act CIP Notice [here] , to help the government fight the funding of terrorism and money laundering activities.
(b) Account Security. You must create a password for your Account. You must maintain the security of your Account and you will promptly notify us if you believe or have reason to believe that any of your User Information, including your Login ID and/or password, has been compromised, or that another person is accessing your Account through some other means. You agree not to disclose your Login ID and/or password to anyone else, and you will be solely responsible for any activities or actions take under your Account, whether or not authorized by you. Except as provided in Section 26 of the Cardholder Agreement, which limits your liability for unauthorized transfers, we are not liable for any loss or damage from your failure to comply with the requirements of this Section 3(b).
(c) Identity Verification. In order to use certain Services, Simba may be required to verify your identity. You hereby authorize Simba, directly or through our third-party vendor, to make any inquiries we consider necessary to validate your identity and/or authenticate your identity and User Information. This may include asking you for further information and/or documentation about your identity or requiring you to take steps to confirm ownership of your email address, wireless/cellular telephone number or financial instruments, and verifying your information against third party databases or through other sources. If you do not respond to such inquiries or if we cannot verify your identity, we may refuse to allow you to use the Services.
(e) Limits. You may not create more than one (1) Simba Account.
(a) Type of Account. Your Account is a prepaid debit card account associated with a bank account held
with Metropolitan Commercial Bank (“MCB”) - a Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) insured bank that insures your funds up to $250,000.
(b) Banking Services. We may change the Services you have access to from time to time. The Services
may include the following: (i) prepaid debit card account; (ii) debit-to-debit funds transfer; and (iii) overdraft.
(i) Prepaid Debit Card. Your use of the prepaid debit card is subject to the terms of your cardholder agreement with MCB, which can be found [here]. You may add funds into your Account by transferring funds from external bank accounts or other payment instruments, by depositing funds, or through direct deposit. You will need to provide certain account information to Simba or to a third-party service provider to facilitate the transfer of funds to your Account. We may, from time to time impose limitations on the amount of fund you can deposit into or withdraw from your Account. These limits are listed in [here]. You may use your prepaid debit card to make transactions at ATMs (which can be found through Simba’s ATM Finder).

(ii) Debit-to-Debit Funds Transfer. You acknowledge and understand that Simba or its third-party service providers may impose certain limitations on the amounts, timing, or recipients of funds from your Account using the debit-to-debit funds transfer service. We may also request additional information from you regarding the transaction prior to completing your requested transaction. You are responsible for accurately entering your recipient’s information and the details of the transaction, and you acknowledge and understand that your failure to ensure the accuracy of the information could result in you sending funds to the wrong recipient and a loss of your funds. Simba is not responsible for any loss of funds if Simba follows the instructions you provide. Ensure that you know the recipient and that you are not the victim of a scam. You acknowledge and understand that Simba does not have control over aspects of the transfer, including the time it may take for transfers to reach the recipient’s account. Please notify Simba immediately if there is any problem with your transaction, including sending funds to the wrong recipient or a delay in the transfer. Fees associated with these transactions are listed in the Schedule of All Fees and Charges for Simba Prepaid Visa Card section of the cardholder agreement [here]. Simba does not know and is not responsible for any fees you or your recipient may be charged by third parties that are involved in the transaction but are not associated with Simba.
(iii) Overdraft. If your Account balance becomes negative for any reason, that negative balance represents an amount you owe to Simba and you promise to repay the negative balance immediately without any notice from us. If your Account balance is negative, we can set-off the amount you owe us from any amount we owe to you.

THE SERVICES ARE PROVIDED ON AN “AS IS” AND “AS AVAILABLE” BASIS. TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW. WE EXPRESSLY DISCLAIM ALL WARRANTIES, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, IN CONNECTION WITH THE SERVICES AND YOUR USE THEREOF, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, AND NON-INFRINGEMENT. WE MAKE NO WARRANTIES OR REPRESENTATIONS OF ANY KIND WHATSOEVER, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, AS TO: (i) THE SERVICES, (ii) THE SIMBA CONTENT, OR (iii) SECURITY ASSOCIATED WITH THE TRANSMISSION OF INFORMATION TO US OR VIA THE SERVICES. YOU ASSUME ALL RISK FOR ALL DAMAGES, INCLUDING DAMAGE TO YOUR COMPUTER SYSTEM, MOBILE DEVICE OR LOSS OF DATA THAT MAY RESULT FROM YOUR USE OF OR ACCESS TO THE SERVICES. YOU HEREBY ACKNOWLEDGE THAT USE OF THE SERVICES IS AT YOUR SOLE RISK.

WE DO NOT REPRESENT OR WARRANT THAT THE SERVICES WILL BE PROVIDED ERROR-FREE OR UNINTERRUPTED; THAT DEFECTS WILL BE CORRECTED; OR THAT THE SERVICES OR THE SERVER THAT MAKES THE SERVICES AVAILABLE IS FREE FROM ANY HARMFUL COMPONENTS, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, VIRUSES OR MALICIOUS CODE. WE DO NOT MAKE ANY REPRESENTATIONS OR WARRANTIES THAT THE INFORMATION (INCLUDING ANY INSTRUCTIONS) ON THE SERVICES ARE ACCURATE, COMPLETE, OR USEFUL. FURTHER, WE DO NOT WARRANT THAT YOUR USE OF THE SERVICES IS LAWFUL IN ANY PARTICULAR JURISDICTION, AND WE SPECIFICALLY DISCLAIM SUCH WARRANTIES. SOME JURISDICTIONS LIMIT OR DO NOT ALLOW THE DISCLAIMER OF IMPLIED OR OTHER WARRANTIES SO THE ABOVE DISCLAIMER MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU TO THE EXTENT SUCH JURISDICTION’S LAW IS APPLICABLE TO YOU AND THIS AGREEMENT.
(A) TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, SIMBA, AND OUR SUBSIDIARIES AND AFFILIATES, AND EACH OF OUR RESPECTIVE OFFICERS, DIRECTORS, AGENTS, PARTNERS AND EMPLOYEES (INDIVIDUALLY AND COLLECTIVELY, THE “SIMBA PARTIES”) WILL NOT BE LIABLE TO YOU UNDER ANY THEORY OF LIABILITY—WHETHER BASED IN CONTRACT, TORT, NEGLIGENCE, WARRANTY, OR OTHERWISE—FOR ANY INDIRECT, CONSEQUENTIAL, EXEMPLARY, INCIDENTAL, PUNITIVE OR SPECIAL DAMAGES OR LOST PROFITS, EVEN IF SIMBA OR THE OTHER SIMBA PARTIES HAVE BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES.
(B) THE TOTAL LIABILITY OF SIMBA AND THE OTHER SIMBA PARTIES FOR ANY CLAIM ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING TO THIS AGREEMENT OR THE SERVICES, REGARDLESS OF THE FORM OF THE ACTION, IS LIMITED TO THE GREATER OF $100 OR THE AMOUNT PAID BY YOU TO USE THE SERVICES.
(C) THE LIMITATIONS SET FORTH IN THIS SECTION 16 WILL NOT LIMIT OR EXCLUDE LIABILITY FOR THE GROSS NEGLIGENCE, FRAUD OR INTENTIONAL MISCONDUCT OF SIMBA OR THE OTHER SIMBA PARTIES OR FOR ANY OTHER MATTERS IN WHICH LIABILITY CANNOT BE EXCLUDED OR LIMITED UNDER APPLICABLE LAW.

To the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, you will indemnify, defend and hold harmless the Simba Parties, from and against any losses, liabilities, claims, demands, damages, expenses or costs (“Claims”) arising out of or related to (i) your access to or use of the Services; (ii) your violation of this Agreement; (iii) your violation, misappropriation or infringement of any rights of another (including intellectual property rights or privacy rights); (iv) any disputes or issues between you and any third party; or (v) your conduct in connection with the Services. You agree to promptly notify Simba Parties of any third-party Claims, cooperate with Simba Parties in defending such Claims and pay all fees, costs and expenses associated with defending such Claims (including attorneys’ fees). You also agree that the Simba Parties will have control of the defense or settlement, at Simba’s sole option, of any third-party Claims. You agree not to settle any matter without the prior written consent of Simba. This indemnity is in addition to, and not in lieu of, any other indemnities set forth in a written agreement between you and Simba or the other Simba Parties.
PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING PARAGRAPHS CAREFULLY BECAUSE THEY REQUIRE YOU AND SIMON WALLET, INC. TO AGREE TO RESOLVE ALL DISPUTES BETWEEN US THROUGH BINDING INDIVIDUAL ARBITRATION.
(a) Applicability of Arbitration Agreement. You and Simon Wallet, Inc. agree that all claims and disputes (whether contract, tort, or otherwise), including all statutory claims and disputes, arising out of or relating to these this Agreement or the use of the Services that cannot be resolved in small claims court will be resolved by binding arbitration on an individual basis, except that you and Simon Wallet, Inc. are not required to arbitrate any dispute in which either party seeks equitable relief for the alleged unlawful use of copyrights, trademarks, trade names, logos, trade secrets, or patents. To be clear: The phrase “all claims and disputes” also includes claims and disputes that arose between us before the effective date of this Agreement.
(b) Arbitration Rules. The Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of this dispute-resolution provision. Arbitration will be initiated through the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) and will be governed by the AAA Consumer Arbitration Rules. If the AAA is not available to arbitrate, the parties will select an alternative arbitral forum. The rules of the arbitral forum will govern all aspects of this arbitration, except to the extent those rules conflict with this Agreement.
(c) Waiver of Jury Trial. YOU AND SIMON WALLET, INC. WAIVE ANY CONSTITUTIONAL AND STATUTORY RIGHTS TO GO TO COURT AND HAVE A TRIAL IN FRONT OF A JUDGE OR A JURY. You and Simon Wallet, Inc. are instead electing to have claims and disputes resolved by arbitration. Arbitration procedures are typically more limited, more efficient, and less costly than rules applicable in court and are subject to very limited review by a court. In any litigation between you and Simon Wallet, Inc. over whether to vacate or enforce an arbitration award, YOU AND SIMON WALLET, INC. WAIVE ALL RIGHTS TO A JURY TRIAL, and elect instead to have the dispute be resolved by a judge.
(d) Waiver of Class or Consolidated Actions. ALL CLAIMS AND DISPUTES WITHIN THE SCOPE OF THIS ARBITRATION AGREEMENT MUST BE ARBITRATED OR LITIGATED ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND NOT ON A CLASS BASIS. CLAIMS OF MORE THAN ONE CUSTOMER OR USER CANNOT BE ARBITRATED OR LITIGATED JOINTLY OR CONSOLIDATED WITH THOSE OF ANY OTHER CUSTOMER OR USER. If, however, this waiver of class or consolidated actions is deemed invalid or unenforceable, neither you nor we are entitled to arbitration; instead all claims and disputes will be resolved in a court as set forth in Section 20.
(e) Right to Waive. Any rights and limitations set forth in this arbitration agreement may be waived by the party against whom the claim is asserted. Such waiver will not waive or affect any other portion of this arbitration agreement.
(f) Opt-out. You may opt out of this arbitration agreement. If you do so, neither you nor Simon Wallet, Inc. can force the other party to arbitrate. To opt out, you must notify us in writing no later than 30 days after first becoming subject to this arbitration agreement. Your notice must include your name and address, your Login ID and the email address you used to set up your Account (if you have one), and an unequivocal statement that you want to opt out of this arbitration agreement. You must mail your opt-out notice to this address: Simon Wallet, Inc., 115 Broadway, 5th Floor, NY, NY 10006
(g) Arbitration Agreement Survival. This arbitration agreement will survive the termination of your relationship with us.
You agree that any claim you may have arising out of or related to your relationship with us must be filed within one year after such claim arose; otherwise, your claim is permanently barred.
This Agreement and your use of the Services are governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of New York, without regard to its conflict of law principles. To the extent that this Agreement allows you or us to initiate litigation in a court, you agree that all claims and disputes (whether in contract, tort, or otherwise), including statutory claims and disputes, arising out of or relating to this Agreement or use of the Services will be litigated exclusively in the federal and state courts of New York, New York. You expressly consent to the personal jurisdiction of such courts.
Visiting the Services, sending us emails, and completing online forms constitute electronic communications. You consent to receive electronic communications, and you agree that all agreements, notices, disclosures, and other communications we provide to you electronically, via text or SMS, email, and through the Services, satisfy any legal requirement that such communication be in writing. If you sign up to receive certain Simba notifications or information via text or SMS, you may incur additional charges from your wireless provider for these notices. You agree that you are solely responsible for any such charges. YOU HEREBY AGREE TO THE USE OF ELECTRONIC SIGNATURES, CONTRACTS, AND OTHER RECORDS, AND TO ELECTRONIC DELIVERY OF NOTICES, POLICIES, AND RECORDS OF TRANSACTIONS INITIATED OR COMPLETED BY US OR VIA THE SERVICES. You hereby waive any rights or requirements under any statutes, regulations, rules, ordinances, or other laws in any jurisdiction which require an original signature or delivery or retention of non-electronic records, or to payments or the granting of credits by any means other than electronic means.

This Agreement and any policies or operating rules posted by us on the Services constitute the entire agreement and understanding between you and us. Our failure to exercise or enforce any right or provision of this Agreement shall not operate as a waiver of such right or provision. This Agreement operates to the fullest extent permissible by law. We may assign any or all of our rights and obligations to others at any time. We will not be responsible or liable for any loss, damage, delay, or failure to act caused by any cause beyond our reasonable control. If any provision or part of a provision of this Agreement is determined to be unlawful, void, or unenforceable, that provision or part of the provision is deemed severable from this Agreement and does not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions. There is no joint venture, partnership, employment or agency relationship created between you and us as a result of this Agreement or use of the Services. You agree that this Agreement will not be construed against us by virtue of having drafted them. You hereby waive any and all defenses you may have based on the electronic form of this Agreement and the lack of signing by the parties hereto to execute this Agreement.
