3. Access to our Services
a. Signing up to your SaltPay Account: If you are registering for a SaltPay Account, either for you as an individual or on behalf of a legal entity, here are the basics, it’s super simple. We just need to grab some details from you or your Representative, which may differ depending on whether you are registering as an individual or as a legal entity and may include some or all of the information referred to above. We’ll let you know when your SaltPay Account is active once we have reviewed and approved all required information. In some instances, your SaltPay Account is automatically generated, subject to the information we gather from you during your application process for a Service. If that’s the case, your SaltPay Account is ready for use once the application process is completed.
b. Applying for a SaltPay Service: Where you’re requesting access to a Service which is not accessible via your SaltPay Account, we will provide you with a medium where you’ll be able to submit your application to us, setting out which information we require for us to be able to register you for a Service.
c. Regulated Services: Some the Services we provide are regulated, such as our Payment Services. Due to regulatory requirements, as well as for us to be able to assess your eligibility as a potential customer, we may request further information from you. This may include copies of financial statements, reporting validating documentation that allows us to calculate outstanding credit exposure/risk of loss or other records pertaining to your compliance with these SaltPay General Terms. We may also require you to provide a personal or company guarantee.
Under Applicable Laws, such as anti-money laundering legislation, we are required to verify your identity and the identities of the beneficial owners of any business using the Payment Services.
We may request and review identity verifying information about you, for example from external service providers, including credit reporting agencies and information bureaus. SaltPay may periodically obtain additional reports to determine whether you continue to meet the requirements for Payment Services.
SaltPay may request additional information from you at any time. Your failure to provide this information or material requested by SaltPay may result in suspension or termination of your SaltPay Account or your access to the Services.
d. Informing us of any changes: You must keep the information in your SaltPay Account up to date and inform us of any changes with respect to your business, such as nature of your business activities, your Representatives, beneficial owners, principals, or any other relevant information, by contacting SaltPay support. Your failure to keep your information up to date may result in us suspending or terminating your SaltPay Account or your access to our Services.

Unauthorised or Illegal use: If we suspect or know that you are using or have used the Services for unauthorised, fraudulent, or illegal purposes, or in a manner that exposes you, us, or others to risks unacceptable to us, we may limit or disable the functionality of your Service, until such time as you demonstrate to our reasonable satisfaction that our suspicion was unfounded, or you provide us with sufficient assurances that the unacceptable use has been appropriately mitigated and will not recur.
7. Your equipment & the support we provide
a. Your equipment: In order to use the Services, you’ll need a stable internet connection, as well as relevant additional equipment. We do not offer such connection nor additional equipment, unless expressly agreed by us, and therefore you are responsible for making sure you have access to the above to the extent it is needed to use the Services. We do not warrant that the Services will be compatible with your equipment.
b. Support: Navigating through the digital realm can be a bit daunting and complicated at times and we understand that you might need assistance from time to time. Customer service is at the heart of our operations. We will therefore happily provide you with the support you need related to your use of the Services. You can reach out to us here. Certain Services may offer separate support specific to the Service you use or additional customer service, subject to the applicable Additional Terms, so make sure you give them a read.
8. The Services
a. Service availability: The Services, including any material or products offered through them, may be unavailable from time to time, may be offered on a limited basis, or may vary depending on your location or device. You agree not to access or use the Services in case it is illegal or not licensed for use in your location from which you access or use the Services, or to conceal or misrepresent your location or identity in order to use the Services.
We will endeavour to keep the Services up and running, including the SaltPay Software, but, as is the case with online services, they may suffer periodic disruptions and outages. We are not liable for any disruption or loss you may suffer as a result. If an outage occurs, it is possible that you may not be able to access or retrieve the User Content.
b. Service updates: We may need to update the Services from time to time, including in order to keep the Services functioning properly or to offer you new and exciting features. We may automatically inspect your version of the SaltPay Software and download updates and configuration changes. In some instances, it may be required to update the SaltPay Software in order to be able to continue using it.
It’s important to note that we are not obligated to make any updates available and we don’t guarantee that we will support your system, or the version of your system, on which you purchased or licensed the SaltPay Software. Our updates may not be compatible with External Services.
Sometimes we may need to remove or change features or functionality of the SaltPay Software or stop providing a SaltPay Software or access to External Services altogether. We have no obligation (except to the extent required by Applicable Law) to provide you with a download or replacement of any SaltPay Software previously purchased or licensed.
c. Licence: In order for you and Authorised Users to have access to the Services, SaltPay gives you a licence to use the Services which means that you don’t own the relevant Service. All intellectual property rights in the Services are exclusively owned by SaltPay, but you do have a right to use the Services subject to these SaltPay General Terms, as well as any applicable Additional Terms.
You are therefore granted a non-exclusive, non-transferable and revocable licence to electronically access and use the Services only in the manner described in these SaltPay General Terms, and the applicable Additional Terms for the relevant Service. We may make updates to the Services or new Services available to you automatically as electronically published by SaltPay, but we may require action on your part before you may use the Services or new services (including manual activation, or acceptance of new or Additional Terms). SaltPay may revoke or terminate this licence at any time as further set out in these SaltPay General Terms, or as applicable, any Additional Terms.
You may not: (i) claim or register ownership of Services on your behalf or on behalf of others; (ii) sublicense any rights in Services granted by us; (iii) import or export any Services to a person or country in violation of any country’s export control Laws; (iv) use Services in a manner that violates these SaltPay General Terms or Applicable Laws; or (v) attempt to do any of the foregoing.
d. External Services: The Services may be linked to External Services, or offer you the opportunity to connect, enable or access External Services, via the Services, such as through your SaltPay Account. In such cases your SaltPay Account serves as a method of facilitating the registration of or authentication into an account associated with an External Service, which may be a different account than your SaltPay Account. The information required to use an External Service following your registration with your SaltPay Account may vary based on External Service requirements. You agree that access and use of such External Services shall be governed solely by the terms and conditions of such External Services, and that SaltPay is not responsible or liable for, and makes no representations or warranties as to any aspect of such External Services, including, without limitation, their content or data practices, or any interaction between you and the provider of such External Services. Any use by you of External Services shall be solely between you and the applicable provider of such External Services. SaltPay is not liable for any damage or loss caused or alleged to be caused by or in connection with your enablement, access or use of any such External Services, or your reliance on the privacy practices, data security processes or other policies of such External services.

Data security is extremely important to us and we have put in place appropriate organisational and technical security measures to prevent your Personal Data from being accidentally lost, used or accessed in an unauthorised way, altered or disclosed. In addition, we limit access to your Personal Data to those employees, agents, contractors and other third parties who have a business need to know. We note however that you are also responsible for implementing administrative, technical, and physical controls that are appropriate for your business.
Further, you are responsible for safeguarding your password and for restricting access to the Services from your compatible equipment. You will immediately notify us of any unauthorised use of your password or SaltPay Account or any other breach of security.
Part C – Fees, Billing & Taxes
As stated previously, SaltPay Companies offer various Services, governed in part by Additional Terms. The Fees payable by you will therefore vary depending on the Service you use and are as set out in the applicable Additional Terms.
This may include Fees payable on a recurring basis or on an as-used basis. By using our Services, you agree to pay the Fees and any applicable taxes in accordance with the terms of the relevant Additional Terms.
b. Billing: Fees may be paid by various payment methods made available by SaltPay. You agree and authorise that SaltPay, on its own behalf or as an agent for its affiliates, may collect Fees for Services via any available method, including charging a debit card or credit card linked to your SaltPay Account or the particular Service you use, by direct debit or deduction from your Settlement (as further defined in the Payment Services Terms).
Fees charged on a recurring basis may be charged in advance or upon purchase, as well as on the relevant renewal date until cancelled. Your subscription will renew automatically unless cancelled. You can cancel your subscription at any time, and you will continue to have access to the relevant Service until the end of your current subscription period, when the next recurring Fee is due to be paid. Fees payable on a recurring basis are non-refundable, and we do not provide refunds or credits for any partial subscription periods or unused Services.
We reserve the right to bill Fees from any SaltPay Company and to change billing entities as we deem appropriate.
c. Collection of Fees: You must pay, or ensure that SaltPay is able to collect, Fees and other amounts you owe under these General Terms or any applicable Additional Terms when due. If you fail to pay invoiced amounts when due, if your SaltPay Account balance is negative or does not contain funds sufficient to pay amounts that you owe under these General Terms, Additional Terms, or under any other agreement with SaltPay or any of its affiliates, we may deduct, recoup or setoff Fees and such amounts from your:
(a) SaltPay Account balance;
(b) unpaid Settlements,
(c) established Reserves; or
(d) any other funds held by SaltPay otherwise payable to you.
Unless otherwise stated, all Fees are exclusive of any Taxes. You are responsible and liable for determining any and all Taxes, including any VAT, required to be assessed, incurred, collected, paid or withheld for your use of the Services. You also are responsible and liable for: (i) determining whether Taxes, apply to your sale of products and services, payments received, and any other transactions arising from or out of your use of the Services; and (ii) calculating, collecting, reporting or remitting any Taxes, to the appropriate tax and revenue authorities. We assume no liability in connection with any taxes you might owe in connection with your use of the Services.
In some cases, we may be obliged under Applicable Law to provide information to tax authorities related to your use of the Services. Where that’s the case, and we do not hold all information required, you must provide us with the necessary information to complete such reporting.
Part D – SaltPay Hardware
We’re glad that you’ve chosen to use our SaltPay Hardware to support your business needs and grow your operations. There are certain specific terms which govern the use of our SaltPay Hardware so please read them over carefully.
Please note that when you lease or purchase SaltPay Hardware the SaltPay Company which you’re contracting with depends on where you are located. For further details please view the applicable Additional Terms.

17. SaltPay Hardware Purchase
Certain SaltPay Hardware may be available for purchase. The SaltPay Company you are purchasing SaltPay Hardware from may depend on your location as further provided under the relevant Additional Terms. If you want to purchase your very own SaltPay Hardware, please take a look at the terms below, as they govern the sale of SaltPay Hardware.
a. Placing an order: You can place an order for SaltPay Hardware by contacting us, following which we will issue an order confirmation which sets out the applicable purchase price for the relevant SaltPay Hardware, shipping method, shipping fees and estimated delivery date. After we have sent you the order confirmation, we will issue an advance invoice, payable by you and delivered to the e-email address associated with your order. Upon payment of the issued invoice, we’ll ship your order to your registered address.
You may not purchase SaltPay Hardware for resale, and we reserve the right to refuse or cancel your order if we believe you will do so.
b. Shipping & Cancellation: While we will try to meet your shipment and delivery dates, we may be unable to do so in the event we are low in SaltPay Hardware inventory. In addition, many events beyond our control can affect the delivery of your SaltPay Hardware after we provide it to the carrier. Therefore, we are not liable for late shipment or delivery or any loss, damage, or penalty you incur from any delay in shipment or delivery. Risk of loss and title for the SaltPay Hardware pass to you upon delivery to you. We will endeavour to notify you of any events we become aware of which might delay or impact your order.
There may be occasions when we confirm your order but subsequently learn that we are unable to supply your SaltPay Hardware. Therefore, we reserve the right at any time to limit or change quantities available for purchase or to cancel your order. If we cancel your order due to supply issues, we will refund your purchase price in full.
c. Warranty: Unless stated otherwise, such as in applicable Additional Terms or in documentation associated with your order, SaltPay warrants your SaltPay Hardware against defects in materials and workmanship under normal use for a period of two (2) years from the shipping date, save for batteries, which carries a six (6) month warranty. If a defect is repairable, we will notify you and endeavour to provide you with a replacement SaltPay Hardware to use while we repair the defect. If the defect is not repairable, SaltPay will endeavour to replace such defective SaltPay Hardware at no cost to you. However, you must return the defective SaltPay Hardware to SaltPay at the designated address and in the designated box, with all accessories, cords, cables, parts, and documentation included, within ten (10) days of receiving your replacement SaltPay Hardware. This limited warranty does not apply to SaltPay Hardware that has been subject to alteration, repair, tampering, accident, abuse, misuse, fire, acts of god (including, without limitation, earthquake, flood, hurricane, lightning, or tornado) or other external causes. This limited warranty does not apply to any third-party hardware, any consumable parts, or any software, even if resold or included with the SaltPay Hardware. We reserve the right to charge you the cost associated with the repair of your SaltPay Hardware in case the cause of the repair does not fall within the limited warranty. To initiate a warranty-based repair or return, please contact us.
Part E – Legal Terms
We think it’s important that we highlight and set out in a clear manner how SaltPay safeguards its interests, while offering its services to its customers which includes limitation of liability and disclaimers. The sections set out below reflect those safeguards, as well as other legal terms, and how they apply to you. While these legal terms are perhaps deemed by many as less than exciting, it’s important that you read them carefully and if you’re unsure about any of them, please get in touch.
SaltPay, resellers, distributors, and vendors, make no warranties, express or implied, guarantees or conditions with respect to your use of the Services, such as regarding title, merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose and/or non-infringement, to the maximum extent permitted by Applicable Law. You understand that use of the Services is at your own risk and that we provide the Services on an "as is" basis and "as “available" basis. We don‘t guarantee the accuracy or timeliness of the Services. You may have certain rights under your local law. Nothing in these SaltPay General Terms is intended to affect those rights, to the extent they cannot be derogated from. You acknowledge that computer and telecommunications systems are not fault-free and occasional periods of downtime occur. We do not guarantee the Services will be uninterrupted, timely, secure, or error-free or that content loss won't occur, nor do we guarantee any connection to or transmission from computer networks.
To the fullest extent permitted by Applicable Laws SaltPay disclaims and excludes (and you agree to waive) all representations, warranties and guarantees, whether implied or express and whether arising by law, contract or a course of dealings. You expressly acknowledge and agree that use of the Services is at your sole risk and that the entire risk as to satisfactory quality, performance, accuracy and effort is with you.
You agree that your purchases (and agreeing to these SaltPay General Terms and or any Applicable Additional terms) are not contingent on the delivery of any future Services, functionality or features, or dependent on any oral or written public comments made by or on behalf of SaltPay regarding future Services, functionality or features.
SaltPay does not warrant, endorse, guarantee or assume responsibility for any product or services advertised or offered by a third party. SaltPay has no control of or liability for, any goods or services that are paid for using the Services.
