Welcome to routable.com, the website and online service of Routable, Inc. (“Company,” “we,” “us,” or “our”). This page explains the terms by which you may use the payment processing services (the “Service”) that we provide to paid users of the Service (“Client”) or make available to service providers, vendors, and other payees of a Client who receive or request payment from a Client (each a “Vendor”).
PLEASE READ THIS AGREEMENT CAREFULLY TO ENSURE THAT YOU UNDERSTAND EACH PROVISION. THIS AGREEMENT CONTAINS A MANDATORY INDIVIDUAL ARBITRATION AND CLASS ACTION/JURY TRIAL WAIVER PROVISION THAT REQUIRES THE USE OF ARBITRATION ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS TO RESOLVE DISPUTES, RATHER THAN JURY TRIALS OR CLASS ACTIONS. BY ACCEPTING THESE TERMS, YOU AND ROUTABLE ARE EACH WAIVING THE RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY OR TO PARTICIPATE IN ANY CLASS ACTION OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. YOU AGREE TO GIVE UP YOUR RIGHT TO GO TO COURT to assert or defend your rights under this Agreement (except for matters that may be taken to small claims court). Your rights will be determined by a NEUTRAL ARBITRATOR and NOT a judge or jury.
By clicking “I Agree,” indicating acceptance electronically, executing an order form that references this Agreement, or by accessing or using the Service, you signify that you have read, understood, and agree to be bound by these terms of service (the “Agreement”). By accessing and using the Service on behalf of a company, you represent that you are authorized to bind that company to this Agreement. If you are not eligible to use the Services or do not agree to the Agreement, then you do not have our permission to use the Services.
A. Purchasing the Services; Accessing the Services
Clients purchase the Services by executing an order form for Services with Routable (each and “Order Form”). The Order Form includes the term of the Services, usage limitations, usage rates, and renewal dates. If the Order Form does not include the term or renewal information, the Agreement begins on the date Client executes the Order Form and continues for a period of 12 months, unless terminated as set forth in this Agreement, and automatically renews for successive one-year periods.
B. License to Access Routable Service
Subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, we hereby grant to you a limited non-exclusive, non-transferable, non-sublicensable, revocable right to access and use the Services for business purposes for the term of the Order Form. We reserve all rights not expressly granted to you in this Agreement. The Service is protected by copyright, trade secret, and other intellectual property laws. We may modify the Service at any time, with or without notice, including by removing, adding, or changing the functionality or features of the Service.
You may create an account on behalf of a company, organization, non-profit entity, sole proprietorship, or other entity as an authorized representative of the entity with the authority to bind the entity to this Agreement (an “Account”). Your Account gives you or the users that you authorize (including account administrators) access to the Service in order to initiate, request, or receive payments. In order to create an Account, we will ask you to provide information about your business, financial institutions, tax information, and similar kinds of information. You are responsible for ensuring that the information in your Account is accurate and up to date. You may update your Account information in the settings page of your Account.
You may never use another Account without permission. When creating your Account, you must provide accurate and complete information. You are solely responsible for the instructions, payments, or other activity that occurs on your Account, and you must keep your account password secure (including API credentials, where applicable). You are responsible for ensuring that the employees, contractors, and agents that access your Account comply with the security requirements set out in this Agreement and with industry standard security practices. You agree to notify Routable immediately of any breach of security or unauthorized use of your Account. Routable will not be liable for any losses caused by any unauthorized use of your Account.
We may (without prior notice to you) (i) change the Service; (ii) stop providing the Service or features of the Service, to you or to Vendors generally; or (iii) create usage limits for the Service. We may permanently or temporarily terminate or suspend your access to the Service, with or without notice and without liability for any reason, including if you violate any provision of this Agreement (as determined by us in our sole discretion). Upon termination for any reason or no reason, you continue to be bound by this Agreement. We reserve the right, but have no obligation, to monitor the Services.

Clients may upload information or content to the Service (“User Content”). User Content may include documents, information, or other data. Clients are responsible for monitoring the User Content posted by their authorized users. We have the right, but not the responsibility, to monitor User Content or to remove User Content for any or no reason. You are responsible for, and we have no responsibility and incur no liability for, any claims, losses, damages, or harm arising from or related to any User Content. You represent and warrant that you will comply with all applicable rules, agreements, regulations, and laws (including, without limitation, related to data privacy, consumer protection, telemarketing, and subscription payments) with respect to User Content.
A. Company Content. Except for your User Content, the Service, the user documentation, the software and technology that comprises the Service, the APIs, usage date, Ideas, aggregated data, and any images, text, graphics, product data, illustrations, logos, patents, trademarks, service marks, copyrights, photographs, audio, video, and music that comprise the Services, and all intellectual property rights related thereto (the “Company Content”), are the exclusive property of Company and its licensors. Except as explicitly provided herein, nothing in this Agreement shall be deemed to create a license in or under any such intellectual property rights in Company Content.
If you submit comments or ideas about the Service, including, without limitation, about how to improve the Service (“Ideas”), you agree that your disclosure is gratuitous, unsolicited and without restriction. We are free to use any Idea, for any purpose, without compensation to you. Ideas are not confidential, and we may disclose the Idea on a non-confidential basis or otherwise to anyone.
A. Billing Policies. We provide the Service to Clients for a service fee. The fees for the Service are set forth in the Order Form. We may add new services for additional fees or update the fee for existing Services. In addition, our third-party service providers may increase rates or fees that they charge us or that we pass through to you, and in such cases, the fees for the Service will be increased. Other than fees increases due to increased fees assessed by third-party service providers, any change to the fees or payment terms shall become effective in the billing cycle following notice of such change to you as provided in this Agreement. On renewal, if we determine automatic debits are necessary due to previous overdue payments, we may require that you provide us with consent to automatically debit your account for amounts due.
B. No Refunds. The Services are non-cancelable and non-refundable. In the event that Company suspends or terminates your Account for your breach of this Agreement, you will not receive a refund or credit (including for any unused time on a subscription, any license or subscription fees for any portion of the Service, any content or data associated with your account, or for anything else).
C. Late Payments. If you fail to make payments (not disputed in good faith) when due under this Agreement and the Order Form, we may suspend provision of the Service until payment is received. Unpaid amounts will accrue interest at the rate of 1.5% per month. In addition to any other remedies available to us, we may collect any costs of collection that we incur in collecting such payment.
Further, If you have any past due amounts, you authorize Routable to automatically debit 7 business days after such amount becomes past due the bank account you have linked on the Routable platform for the full amount you owe, plus any bank fees, penalties, or interest that has accumulated. If you do not have sufficient funds in the linked bank account to repay the full amount owed, you authorize Routable to automatically debit the linked bank account each monthly due date thereafter until you have repaid the past due amount plus any bank fees, penalties, or interest that has accumulated.
D. Taxes. The Service fees do not include any taxes, levies, duties, export or import fees, or other governmental assessments of any nature, including but not limited to value-added sales, use or withholding taxes, imposed or assessed by any jurisdiction (collectively, “Taxes”). You are responsible for the payment of all applicable Taxes (other than Taxes assessable against us based on our income, property, franchise or employment) associated with your subscription to the Service. You agree to cooperate with us and provide us with timely and accurate information as may be required for the calculation and withholding of applicable Taxes. If we have a legal obligation to collect and remit Taxes for which you are responsible, we will invoice you and you will pay us that amount unless you provide us with a valid tax exemption certificate authorized by the appropriate taxing authority.
If the Service provides professional information (for example, accounting, legal, or financial), such information is for informational purposes only and should not be construed as professional advice. No action should be taken based upon any information contained in the Service. You should seek independent professional advice from a person who is licensed and/or qualified in the applicable area.
A. Definition. Company and Client (respectively, a “party,”) may have access to the other party’s information, which will be deemed “Confidential Information” if identified as such by the disclosing party or if the information by its nature is normally and reasonably considered confidential, such as information regarding product, methodology, research, customers, business partners, business plans and any information that provides a competitive advantage. Client Confidential Information includes the personal information of Vendors, customers, and all non-public aspects of Client’s business or organization. Confidential Information of the Company includes all non-public aspects of the Service and this Agreement and all Order Forms (including pricing).
B. Standard of Care. Company or Client may receive Confidential Information from the other party, and in such case will be deemed a “receiving party.” The receiving party will not use for its own purposes or disclose Confidential Information of the other party except as expressly allowed under this Section 6 and to exercise its rights or perform its obligations hereunder. The receiving party will use the same degree of care as it uses to protect its own Confidential Information of a like nature, but not less than a reasonable degree of care. The receiving party will only disclose the Confidential Information of the disclosing party to its employees, contractors, service providers, and other representatives who have a need to access the Confidential Information for purposes consistent with this Agreement. Confidential Information will remain the property of the disclosing party and will be returned or destroyed upon request, at which time the receiving party will provide to the disclosing party a written certification of such return or destruction. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the receiving party shall not be required to destroy information contained in archival or backup services. Further, the receiving party shall not be required to destroy any information which the receiving party is required to retain for legal or regulatory purposes. Without limiting any other provision of this Agreement, with respect to its obligations under this Section, the receiving party will be responsible for the acts and omissions of its employees, service providers, contractors, and other representatives to the same extent as if those acts and omissions were those of the receiving party.
C. Exceptions. Information will not be deemed Confidential Information if it: (i) is information that becomes generally known to the public through no fault of the receiving party, its employees, contractors, service providers or other representatives; (ii) is or becomes known to the receiving party without restriction from a third party other than as a result of breach of contract or wrongful or tortious act; or (iii) is independently developed by the receiving party without reference to or reliance on the disclosing party’s Confidential Information. Confidential Information may be disclosed to the extent required by applicable law, provided the disclosing party is given reasonable advance notice of such disclosure.
With respect to Clients, we agree to maintain appropriate administrative, technical, and procedural safeguards designed to protect the security, confidentiality and integrity of the Service (“Security Measures”). Our Security Measures will include, but will not be limited to, measures designed to prevent unauthorized access to, or disclosure of, personally identifiable information processed by the Service for Clients. A detailed but non-exhaustive list of our current Security Measures is available here: https://routable.com/security/. We cannot guarantee that unauthorized third parties will never be able to defeat our security measures or use your personal information for improper purposes.
By connecting the Service with a third-party service, you give us permission to provide your information to that third-party service, and in some cases, to store your log-in credentials for that service. You acknowledge and agree that such third parties are not our agents, that we are not responsible for their services, their compliance with applicable law, their actions or omissions, or for their maintenance or treatment of the information you submit to the Service. We specifically disclaim liability for any damage or loss caused by your use of any third-party service. We are not responsible for any disclosure, modification or deletion of information submitted to the third-party service.
We use Plaid Technologies, Inc. (“Plaid”), Dwolla, Inc. (“Dwolla”), and Lob.com (“Lob”) to facilitate payments. Plaid, Dwolla and Lob will provide us with information about an Individual User’s account within their financial institutions. When you use these third-party services, we do not receive an Individual’s account number or pin information.
You understand that you will access and manage your Dwolla account through our Service, and Dwolla account notifications will be sent by us, not Dwolla. We will provide customer support for your Dwolla account activity and can be reached at email@example.com and/or by calling us at (855) 800-5666.
