NO WARRANTY OR REPRESENTATION IS GIVEN, AND/OR ANY LIABILITY IS ACCEPTED, BY SHOPKEEP IN RELATION TO THIRD PARTY RIGHTS.

SHOPKEEP MAKES NO WARRANTY OF ANY KIND AS TO THE SUITABILITY OR ADEQUACY OF THE LICENSED SOFTWARE OR SHOPKEEP SERVICES FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE OR NON-INFRINGEMENT. GIVEN THAT LICENSEE IS IN A BETTER POSITION THAN SHOPKEEP TO FORESEE AND EVALUATE ANY POTENTIAL DAMAGE OR LOSS WHICH LICENSEE MAY SUFFER IN CONNECTION WITH THE USE OF THE LICENSED SOFTWARE AND/OR THE SHOPKEEP SERVICES AND THAT SHOPKEEP CANNOT ADEQUATELY INSURE ITS POTENTIAL LIABILITY TO LICENSEE, LICENSEE ACKNOWLEDGES AND AGREES THAT THE EXCLUSIONS AND LIMITATIONS CONTAINED HEREIN ARE REASONABLE. TO THE EXTENT THAT THE FOREGOING LIMITATION OF LIABILITY IS DETERMINED BY A COURT WITH JURISDICTION TO BE UNREASONABLE, SHOPKEEP’S AGGREGATE LIABILITY SHALL NOT EXCEED $100.

Some countries do not allow the exclusion or limitation of implied warranties or limitation of liability for incidental or consequential damages, so the above limitation or exclusion may not apply to you.
Licensee may terminate this license at any time unless you have agreed to a longer purchase commitment period. ShopKeep, in its sole discretion, has the right to suspend or terminate this license and your account and refuse any and all current or future use of the ShopKeep Services for any reason at any time. Licensee’s duties to (i) pay amounts due and payable, (ii) refrain from any kind of reverse engineering or other act in violation of this agreement or (iii) indemnify ShopKeep and the ShopKeep Parties shall survive termination of this Agreement. Upon termination Licensee will destroy all copies of the Licensed Software and documentation onto which the Licensed Software or documentation has been installed. Upon termination ShopKeep shall terminate the Licensee’s access to their ShopKeep account, the account itself and the data residing therein. LICENSEE MUST EXPORT THEIR ACCOUNT DATA PRIOR TO TERMINATION OF THE SHOPKEEP SERVICE. SHOPKEEP SHALL NOT BE RESPONSIBLE FOR LICENSEE ACCOUNT DATA AFTER TERMINATION.

Licensee agrees that the Licensed Software and the operation of the ShopKeep Services and its processes are the confidential information of ShopKeep and agrees not to disclose such software or such operation and processes to any third party. Licensee agrees that breach of this duty of confidentiality shall cause irreparable harm for which monetary damages would be difficult to quantify or insufficient and therefore ShopKeep shall be entitled to immediate injunctive relief in the event of breach without an obligation of posting bond.

ShopKeep EMV Liability Promise
• Merchant Qualification
All ShopKeep merchants that subscribe for ShopKeep point of sale services:
- Subscribed for ShopKeep point of sale services before January 24, 2017, use ShopKeep Payments for processing and have ordered an EMV-capable iCMP or iPP320 credit card reader from ShopKeep; OR
- Do not use ShopKeep Payments for processing and have ordered an EMV-capable iCMP or iPP320 credit card reader from ShopKeep;
- Are customers in good standing at the time of presentation to ShopKeep of the EMV related liability shift chargeback in question.
• Duration of the Liability Shift Protection Offer
ShopKeep’s EMV related liability shift protection is in place for eligible EMV related charged back transactions that occur on or after October 1, 2015 and are presented to ShopKeep before March 31, 2017 (which date may be extended by ShopKeep in ShopKeep’s sole discretion) for ShopKeep merchants that meet ShopKeep’s Merchant Qualification.
• Types of Transactions that May Qualify
EMV related chargeback transactions that a ShopKeep merchant verifies were processed using a chip enabled card on an EMV-capable iCMP or iPP320 credit card reader provided by ShopKeep that contained a counterfeit magstripe that was swiped to process the transaction, and a signature was captured by the merchant in connection with processing the transaction.
• Types of Transactions that Do Not Qualify
Other non-EMV related liability shift chargeback transactions, including those charged by a ShopKeep merchant’s customers and charged back in connection with a failure to perform services, delivery of defective products, credit cards that have been stolen, card-not–present transactions or for lack of authorization, do not qualify.
• Process Requirements to Request Protection
A merchant must contest their liability for the EMV related chargeback transaction with their processor within the time period and on the terms required by their processor and in accordance with the requirements set by their processor. If the merchant does not prevail on the appeal and the processor concludes that the merchant should remain liable for the chargeback solely due to the EMV related liability shift, and the merchant believes that the chargeback may qualify for ShopKeep’s EMV Liability Shift Protection, then the merchant must submit the notice that it received from its processor and all materials related to the appeal to ShopKeep. ShopKeep will notify the merchant if additional information is required. If ShopKeep determines that the merchant’s chargeback is covered by ShopKeep’s EMV Liability Shift Protection, ShopKeep will refund the amount of the EMV related transaction that was charged back.
• Covered Limitation Amounts
A maximum total of up to $500 of ShopKeep approved EMV related chargebacks for each ShopKeep merchant will be eligible for refund by ShopKeep. In no event will any ShopKeep merchant be eligible for more than a total of $500 for all EMV related chargebacks incurred by any ShopKeep merchant pursuant to ShopKeep’s EMV Liability Promise.
ShopKeep reserves the right to amend these Terms and Conditions at any time in ShopKeep’s sole discretion.
The Licensee represents and warrants that it has the due right and power to enter into this Agreement, entering into this Agreement will not cause the breach of any agreement Licensee has with a third party and that all of the registration information provided to ShopKeep is accurate in all respects.
