If you accept this Agreement, you represent that you have the capacity to be bound by it or if you are acting on behalf of a company or entity that you have the authority to bind such entity.
Privacy and your personal information
Description of the services
The PayIt Services are various tools and functions offered through the mobile application that allows you to complete transactions, including making payments, to government agencies. This includes processing vehicle registrations, obtaining licenses and permits, and more. PayIt relies on the data you provide to be complete and accurate, and can assume no liability for errors in this data provided. PayIt will be responsible to you for any authorized refund or chargeback.
Account information from third-party sites
Users may direct PayIt to retrieve their own information maintained online by third parties with which they have customer relationships, maintain accounts, or engage in financial transactions (“Account Information”). PayIt works with one or more online service providers to access this Account Information. PayIt makes no effort to review the Account Information for any purpose, including but not limited to accuracy, legality, or non-infringement. PayIt is not responsible for the products and services offered by or on third-party sites. PayIt cannot always foresee or anticipate technical or other difficulties which may result in failure to obtain data, personalization settings or other service interruptions. PayIt cannot assume responsibility for the timeliness, accuracy, deletion, non-delivery, or failure to store any user data, communications, or personalization settings.
Your registration information
In order to allow you to use the Services, you may need to sign up for an account with PayIt. We may verify your identity. You authorize us to make any inquiries we consider necessary to validate your identity. These inquiries may include asking you for further information, requiring you to provide your full address, your social security number and/or requiring you to take steps to confirm ownership of your e-mail address or financial instruments, ordering a credit report, or verifying information you provide against third-party databases or through other sources. If you do not provide this information or PayIt cannot verify your identity, we can refuse to allow you to use the Services. You agree and understand that you are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your password which, together with your e-mail address, allows you to access the Sites. That e-mail address and password, together with any mobile number or other information you provide form your “Registration Information.” By providing us with your e-mail address, you agree to receive all required notices electronically, through the Services by displaying links to notices generally on the Site, to that e-mail address. It is your responsibility to update or change that address, as appropriate. Notices will be provided in HTML (or, if your system does not support HTML, in plain-text) in the text of the e-mail or through a link to the appropriate page on our site, accessible through any standard, commercially available internet browser. If you become aware of any unauthorized use of your Registration or Account Information for the Services, you agree to notify PayIt immediately. If you believe that your Registration or Account Information or device that you use to access the Services has been lost or stolen, that someone is using your account without your permission, or that an unauthorized transaction has occurred, you must notify PayIt immediately in order to minimize your possible losses.
The following is PayIt’s contact e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Your use of the services
Your right to access and use the Sites and the Services is personal to you and is not transferable by you to any other person or entity. You are only entitled to access and use the Services for lawful purposes. Accurate records enable PayIt to provide the Services to you. You must provide true, accurate, current, and complete information and you may not misrepresent your Registration and Account Information. In order for the Services to function effectively, you must also keep your Registration and Account Information up to date and accurate. If you do not do this, the accuracy and effectiveness of the Services will be affected. You represent that you are a legal owner of, and that you are authorized to provide us with, all Registration and Account Information and other information necessary to facilitate your use of the Services. Services may be interrupted from time to time for any of several reasons, including, without limitation, the malfunction of equipment, periodic updating, maintenance or repair of the Services or other actions that PayIt, in its sole discretion, may elect to take. In no event will PayIt be liable to any party for any loss, cost, or damage that results from any scheduled or unscheduled downtime. Your sole and exclusive remedy for any failure or non-performance of the Services, including any associated software or other materials supplied in connection with such services, shall be for PayIt to use commercially reasonable efforts to effectuate an adjustment or repair of the applicable service.
Use with your mobile device
Use of these Services may be available through a compatible mobile device, Internet and/or network access and may require software.

Online and mobile alerts
PayIt may from time to time provide automatic alerts and voluntary account-related alerts. Automatic alerts may be sent to you following certain changes to your account or information, such as a change in your Registration Information. Voluntary account alerts may be turned on by default as part of the Services. These alerts may allow you to choose alert messages for your accounts. PayIt may add new alerts from time to time, or cease to provide certain alerts at any time upon its sole discretion. Each alert may have different options available, and you may be asked to select from among these options upon activation of your alerts service. You understand and agree that any alerts provided to you through the Services may be delayed or prevented by a variety of factors. PayIt may make commercially reasonable efforts to provide alerts in a timely manner with accurate information, but cannot guarantee the delivery, timeliness, or accuracy of the content of any alert. PayIt shall not be liable for any delays, failure to deliver, or misdirected delivery of any alert; for any errors in the content of an alert; or for any actions taken or not taken by you or any third party in reliance on an alert. Electronic alerts will be sent to the e-mail address you have provided as your primary e-mail address for the Services. If your e-mail address or your mobile device’s e-mail address changes, you are responsible for informing us of that change. You can also choose to have alerts sent to a mobile device that accepts text messages. Changes to your e-mail address or mobile number will apply to all of your alerts.
