    III.     Rain Mobile App and Your Rain Account Terms of Use

IMPORTANT INFORMATION WILL BE PROVIDED TO YOU IN ELECTRONIC RECORDS, SUCH AS VIA EMAIL.

Please review the Rain Terms of Use each time You have access to or use the Services.  SUBJECT TO YOUR ADDITIONAL RIGHTS IN THIS AGREEMENT, BY USING THE SERVICES, YOU AGREE TO BE BOUND BY THE MOST RECENT VERSION OF THE TERMS OF USE.  

    I.     Electronic Fund Transfer (EFT) Agreement

    1.     Creation of Your Rain Account.  When You login and register to the Rain App to have access to and use the Services, You will be creating Your Rain Account.  Each time You have access to or use of Your Rain Account, You are signifying that You agree to all of the terms and conditions of this Agreement.  Your Rain Account is only for You, and You may not permit any person to have access to or to use Your Rain Account.  If You allow any person to have access to or to use Your Rain Account, You shall be responsible for any act (or omission) that the person makes, including for any type of transaction made by the person.

    2.     Security of Your Rain Account.  You shall be solely responsible for all actions and transactions that You or Your authorized agent make in Your Rain Account.  Except to the extent prohibited by law, Rain shall not bear any liability or any responsibility for any misuse of Your Rain Account or any loss of information relating to Your Rain Account.  You shall not disclose to or share with any person your login credentials, passwords, or other personally identifiable information that would allow access to or use of Your Rain Account (individually or collectively the “Credentials”).  

    3.     Electronic Payments.  By using Your Credentials to use Your Rain Account and the Services, You authorize Rain, or Rain’s agent, to draw a check, draft, or otherwise effect a payment transaction to or from Your Rain Account.  Without limitation, a payment transaction may be made via electronic fund transfer (EFT), wire transfer, or substitute check (each an “Electronic Payment”), and the transaction may clear and settle via an automated clearing house (ACH) or via another method that may be selected by Rain, its agent, or Your bank or credit union (or its agent).

    4.     Link to Your Primary Bank Account.  To use the Services, You shall enroll and link to Your Rain Account one or more of Your transaction accounts, such as a checking, money market savings, or regular savings account, that You hold with a bank or credit union (“Your Bank”).   At all times, You shall designate one of Your transaction accounts held at Your Bank to be linked to Your Rain Account. (“Your Primary Bank Account”).  You may change Your Primary Bank Account, except to the extent that Rain prevents or postpones the change, such as to complete a pending Electronic Payment.  When You request an Electronic Payment to be made to or from Your Rain Account, Your Bank may impose a fee or charge for its product or service to You, and Rain shall not be liable to You or any other person in connection with such fee or charge.  As between You and Rain, You shall be responsible for any act or omission made by Your Bank in connection with Your request of or Rain’s action relating to an Electronic Payment.  Without limiting Your responsibility for action or inaction by Your Bank,  

    5.     Fees.  Rain may impose a fee or charge on You for use of the Services (each a “Fee”) relating to any Electronic Payments.  Rain may, in its sole discretion, allow You two or more options to make a payment of a Fee; provided,however, that at any time, Rain may initiate an Electronic Payment to debit Your Primary Bank Account to satisfy any amount You owe for any Fee.  BY ACCESSING OR USING THE RAIN APP OR YOUR RAIN ACCOUNT, YOU SIGNIFY YOUR AGREEMENT TO PERMIT RAIN TO DEBIT OR OTHERWISE CHARGE YOUR PRIMARY BANK ACCOUNT FOR ANY FEE.  

    6.     Rain’s Liability for Failure to Make Electronic Payments.  If Rain does not complete an Electronic Payment that You request or otherwise authorize by the time specified or in the amount You request for that Electronic Payment, Rain shall be liable for any loss or damage that You experience as a result of the untimely or incorrect payment.  However, Rain shall not be liable to You under other circumstances relating to an Electronic Payment, including:

  •     If, through no fault of Rain, You do not maintain accurate information relating to Your Primary Bank Account;
  •     If the online channel or internet system that You use when requesting the Electronic Payment is not working properly and You have knowledge of the defect in that channel or system when You are seeking to use the Rain App or Your Rain Account; or
  •     If one or more other exceptions contained in this Agreement may relieve Rain of its liability.  

    7.     Confidentiality of Information.  Rain may disclose any data or other information, including any nonpublic personal information about You, to any third party in connection with Your use of Your Rain Account or Your request for an Electronic Payment if the disclosure is:

  •     Necessary to conduct or to complete any transaction for the Electronic Payment or to settle or to document the Electronic Payment;
  •     Authorized by You, which authorization may be made orally or in writing; or
  •     Permitted by Rain’s Privacy Notice.  

    8.     Consumer Liability for Unauthorized Transfers or Unauthorized Electronic Payment.  

    Tell us AT ONCE if You believe the Credentials of Your Rain Account have been stolen, or if You believe that any EFT or Electronic Payment has been made without Your permission using Your Credentials.  You could lose all the money in Your Primary Bank Account (plus Your maximum overdraft line or credit).  Telephoning is the best way of keeping Your possible losses down.  You can call: 415-510-9071 or write:

Alex Bradford, CEO at Rain
258 3
rd Avenue
Venice, CA 90291
415-510-9071
alex@rain.us

    If You tell us within 2 business days after You learn of the loss of Your Credentials, You can lose no more than $50 if someone used Your Credentials without Your permission.  If You do NOT tell us within 2 business days after You learn of the loss of Your Credentials, or that an EFT or other Electronic Payment has been made without Your permission using Your Credentials, and we can prove we could have stopped someone from using Your Credentials without Your permission if You had told us, You could lose as much as $500.

    If Your statement shows EFTs that You did not make or authorize to make through Your Rain Account, tell us at once.  If You do not tell us within 60 days after the statement was mailed to You or sent to You electronically, You may not get back the money You lost after the 60 days if we can prove that we can stop someone from taking the money if You had told us in time.  If a good reason (such as a long trip or a hospital stay) kept You from telling us, we will extend the time periods.

    9.     Electronic Payment for Earned Wage Payment.  You may request an Electronic Payment to be initiated by Rain in order for You to obtain funds corresponding to Your earned wages.  An Electronic Payment intended to transfer funds corresponding to Your earned wages is defined in this Agreement as an “Earned Wage Payment,” and Rain may, in its sole discretion use any other term or description for such a transaction, such as in Rain’s marketing or promotional materials relating to the Rain App or for Your Rain Account.  As between You and Rain, You warrant that, as of the time You request an Earned Wage Payment, that You: (i) have rights to the relevant employer or other firm (such as an employment firm) to receive wages, salary, or other cash benefits due to be paid (“wages”); (ii) have performed all of the work or other services of any kind necessary for Your rights to the wages; (iii) shall hold Rain harmless for any and all claims that may be made against You by any person in connection with the payment or receipt of Your wages.  In order for You make a request for an Earned Wage Payment, You shall comply with all of the terms and conditions that Rain may impose, through any mechanism on the Rain App or in Your Rain Account.  Without limiting the scope of the preceding sentence, for each Earned Wage Payment that You request, You warrant that: (a) Rain may limit the amount of funds to be transferred for the Earned Wage Payment to be at or below any threshold that Rain, acting in its sole discretion may set; (b) all information that You provide to Rain is accurate; and (c) You will hold Rain harmless for any loss or damage that You may experience if Rain, acting in its sole discretion, limits the amount or timing of any Earned Wage Payment to conform with the thresholds or limits that Rain may establish for Your Rain Account.  This means that if the amount or the timing of an Earned Wage Payment does not conform to the thresholds or limits that Rain may establish for Your Rain Account, Rain may exercise its rights to modify Your request so that an Electronic Payment may satisfy part of Your request for the Earned Wage Payment.  

    10.     Settlement of Funds in Your Primary Bank Account.  You warrant that You, not Rain, are responsible for the timing of making any request for an Earned Wage Payment in order for funds to be available to You in Your Primary Bank Account.  You warrant that You will hold Rain harmless for any and all losses, costs, or damages to You of any kind due to the timing of any settlement or availability of funds in Your Primary Bank Account.  This means that, even though Rain shall be obligated to You to effect the Electronic Payment in the amount you request for each Earned Wage Payment, the funds made available to You by Your Bank could be available to Your on a date than is later than You expected (when making Your request via the Rain App) or less than the amount You had requested.  You could, for example, receive an amount from Your Bank in Your Primary Bank Account that is less than the amount You had requested for the Earned Wage Payment if Your Bank delays access to such funds or exercises any right Your Bank may hold for set off or other deduction from Your Primary Bank Account.

    11.     Statements for Your Rain Account.  

You have the right to receive an account statement showing Your Rain Account activity.  You may view Your Rain Account statement by logging into Your Rain Account on the Rain App using Your Credentials.

  1. Transfers. You can get a receipt at the time you make any transfer to or from Your Rain Account using the Rain App.
  2. Periodic statements.  Rain shall provide You with a [monthly][quarterly] account statement (unless there are no transfers in a particular month).  In any case, You will get the statement at least quarterly.

    12.     Security Measures for Your Rain Account and Electronic Payments.  

Under certain circumstances, in order to protect Your Rain Account and the security and integrity of the network that uses the Rain App or the Services, Rain may, in its sole discretion, take account-level or transaction-level actions.  Rain’s decision about limitations and holds may be based on confidential criteria that are essential to Rain’s management of risk and the protection of the Rain App or the Services, its customers, or its service providers.  Rain may use propriety fraud and risk modeling when assessing the risk associated with Your Rain Account.  Rain also may be restricted by regulation or a governmental authority from disclosing certain information to You about such decisions.  Rain shall not have any obligation to disclose to You information regarding Rain’s risk management or its security procedures.

  1.     Limitations on frequency of Electronic Payments.  For security reasons and other reasons, there are limits on the number of Electronic Payments You can make using Your Rain Account.  

You may only use the Rain App for up to 8 transactions each month.

  1.     Limitations on dollar amounts of Electronic Payments.  You may transfer up to half of Your Earned Wage Payment each pay period from Your Rain Account.
  2.     Account limitations.  Limitations are implemented to help protect Your Rain Account when Rain notices restricted activities or activity that appears to be usual or suspicious. Your Rain Account may be limited when:
  • Rain suspects someone could be using Your Rain Account without Your knowledge.
  • Another financial institution, such as Your Primary Bank, advises that someone has used Your linked payment methods without permission.
  • Rain is obligated by the law to do so.
  • Rain reasonably believes You have breached this Agreement.

You will need to resolve any issues with Your Rain Account before a limitation can be removed.  Normally, this is done after You provide Rain with the information that is requested. However, if Rain reasonably believes a risk still exists after You have provided us that information, Rain may take action to protect itself, its users, a third party, or You from reversals, fees, fines, penalties, legal and/or regulatory risks and any other liability.

  1.     Holds. A hold is an action that Rain may take under certain circumstances either at the transaction level or the account level.  When Rain places a temporary hold on an Electronic Payment, the money is not available to either the depositor or the recipient.  Rain reviews many factors before placing a hold on an Electronic Payment, including, but not limited to transaction activity, the history of an account, and past disputes.  Rain may place a hold on transactions involving Your Rain Account if, in Rain’s sole discretion, Rain believes that there may be a high level of risk associated with You, or Your Rain Account, or Your transactions or that placing such a hold is necessary based on a number of factors, including information available from internal sources or from third parties.  Risk-based holds may remain in place for up to 180 days from the date the Electronic Payment was made.  Rain may release the hold earlier under certain circumstances, but any earlier release is at Rain’s sole discretion.

    II.     Assignment of Your Earned Wages

    1.     Assignment.  As between You and Rain, You warrant that, as of the time You request an Earned Wage Payment, that You: (i) have rights to the relevant employer or other firm (such as an employment firm) to receive wages, salary, or other cash benefits due to be paid (“wages”); (ii) have performed all of the work or other services of any kind necessary for Your rights to the wages; (iii) shall hold Rain harmless for any and all claims that may be made against You by any person in connection with the payment or receipt of Your wages.  Upon each of Your requests for an Earned Wage Payment, You grant, assign, and transfer to Rain any and all rights that You hold corresponding to the wages for that request.

    2.     You Do Not Have Any Right of Revocation; You Agree to Hold Rain Harmless.  Upon each of Your requests for an Earned Wage Payment, Your assignment to Rain of any and all of the rights to Your wages is irrevocable.  You have no right to reverse or countermand any instruction You make on the Rain App or otherwise in Your Rain Account to assign any and all rights to Rain of Your wages.  This means that: (i) once You complete a transaction (e.g., click “complete” or “submit” when requesting an Electronic Payment), Rain, and not You, holds all of the rights to Your wages that corresponds to the amount of the Earned Wage Payment; and (ii) Your paycheck when paid by Your employer will reflect the deduction or other subtraction of the wages You have earned.  You shall hold Rain harmless for any and all losses or damages that You may experience due to the reduction in Your paycheck which results, directly or indirectly, from the request You had made for an Earned Wage Payment.  

    3.     Rain May Further Assign Rights to Receive Your Earned Wages.  By using Your Rain Account, and upon each of Your requests for an Earned Wage Payment, You warrant that only You hold the rights to Your earned wages.  You further warrant that You have not entered into any other agreement or transaction that could provide any person with rights to Your wages.  Upon Your assignment to Rain of any and all of the rights to Your earned wages in connection with any Earned Wage Payment, Rain may, in its sole discretion, assign its rights to any person, regardless of the time in relation to effecting any Electronic Payment.

    4.     Your Consent to Allow Rain to Monitor Your Accounts to Enforce Rain’s Rights.  By using Your Rain Account, and upon each of Your requests for an Earned Wage Payment, You signify Your consent to allow Rain to use any method that Rain, in its sole discretion, may select to monitor or otherwise collect information about Your accounts for the purpose of enforcing Rain’s rights under this Agreement.  This means that You agree that Rain may collect data pertaining to Your Primary Bank Account or any other account in order to monitor transactions to allow Rain to assess whether You are using any other services provided by another party that could impair or obstruct Rain’s rights to Your assignment of Your earned wages.

  1. DISPUTE RESOLUTION, MANDATORY ARBITRATION AND CLASS ACTION WAIVER

These Terms of Use are governed by U.S. and Delaware law, without regard to conflict of law provisions.  The provisions of the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods (CISG) are expressly excluded in their entirety from these Terms of Use.  English shall be the governing language of these Terms of Use.

All claims and disputes, including all statutory claims and disputes, arising out of or relating to these Terms of Use or Your use of the Service will be finally resolved by binding arbitration on an individual basis, except that You and Rain are not required to arbitrate any dispute in which either party seeks equitable relief for alleged unlawful use of copyrights, trademarks, trade names, logos, trade secrets, or patents. This means that, except for the equitable relief described in the previous sentence, neither Rain nor You will sue in court before a judge or jury, unless You opt out of arbitration as provided below. Rain and You are also agreeing that no dispute subject to the terms of this Section 17 will be resolved as a class.  Instead, one neutral arbitrator will decide the dispute, and the arbitrator’s decision will be final except for a limited right of appeal under the Federal Arbitration Act. The arbitrator may award declaratory or injunctive relief only for the individual claims between Rain and You.

The arbitration will be administered by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”), in accordance with its rules of practice and procedure (the “Rules”), except to the extent they conflict with these Terms of Use. If the AAA is not available to arbitrate, the parties will select an alternative arbitral forum.  The AAA Consumer Arbitration Rules are available online at www.adr.org or by calling AAA at 1-800-778-7879.  Any claims or disputes involving less than US $10,000 may be resolved through binding non-appearance-based arbitration, at the option of the party seeking relief.  For claims or disputes where the amount sought is US $10,000 or more, the right to an in-person oral hearing will be determined by the Rules.  The arbitrator will be bound to follow applicable federal and state laws and regulations in deciding all issues and in rendering any award. Rain and You will be entitled to invoke the rules of discovery applicable to state court proceedings. The arbitration proceedings will be conclusive and not appealable, and any party to any award rendered in any arbitration proceeding will be entitled to have judgment entered on that award.  The number of arbitrators shall be one, selected in accordance with the Rules, and the language of the arbitration will be English.  Unless non-appearance arbitration is elected, the arbitration will be held in New York, New York, provided that, if You notify us in writing within 30 days after the initial notice of arbitration is delivered by a party, the arbitration may be held in Chicago, Illinois or Los Angeles, California.  If non-appearance arbitration is elected, the arbitration will be conducted by phone, online, written submissions, or a combination of the three, at the election of the party initiating arbitration, and the arbitration will not involve a personal appearance by parties or witnesses unless the parties mutually agree otherwise. Notwithstanding any contrary provisions in the Rules, each party shall bear its own costs and expenses of the arbitration and one-half (1/2) of the fees and costs for the arbitrator unless the arbitrator determines the fees and costs should be borne by one of the parties.  The arbitrator may not award or assess punitive damages against either party.

RAIN AND YOU AGREE THAT ANY PROCEEDINGS TO RESOLVE ANY DISPUTE, INCLUDING ARBITRATION AND LITIGATION IN COURT, WILL BE CONDUCTED INDIVIDUALLY ONLY. Neither Rain nor You will seek to have any dispute heard as a class action, a class wide arbitration, a private attorney-general action, or any other proceeding in which either of Rain or You act(s) or propose(s) to act as a representative for others. Rain and You also agree that no arbitration or other proceeding will be combined with another arbitration or proceeding without the written consent of Rain, You, and every other party to that arbitration or proceeding.

You may opt out of the arbitration and class actions waiver set forth above by sending a written notice of Your decision to opt-out in accordance with this Section 17.  If you do so, neither You nor Rain can force the other to arbitrate.  To opt out, You must notify Rain in writing no later than thirty (30) days after first becoming subject to these Terms of Use.  Your notice must include your name and address, your username and the email address You used to set up Your account for the Service, and an unequivocal statement that You want to opt out of this arbitration.  Send Your notice to:  In the event of a dispute between You and Rain, to invoke Your opt-out right, You must retain a copy of Your opt-out notice, as well as proof of mailing of Your opt-out notice within the prescribed period.

If You elect to opt out, each of You and Rain irrevocably (i) consents to the exclusive jurisdiction and venue of the state and federal courts in the State of Delaware in connection with any matter arising out of this Agreement, (ii) waives any objection to such jurisdiction or venue, (iii) agrees not to commence any legal proceedings related hereto except in such courts, (iv) consents to and agrees to accept service of process to vest personal jurisdiction over it in any such courts and (v) waives any right to trial by jury in any action in connection with this Agreement

ANY LEGAL ACTION BROUGHT BY YOU AGAINST RAIN OR ANY OF THE RAIN PARTIES MUST BE COMMENCED **WITHIN ONE (1) YEAR OF THE DATE ON WHICH SUCH LEGAL CLAIMS WOULD ORDINARILY ACCRUE UNDER THE APPLICABLE STATUTE OF LIMITATIONS OR SIMILAR TEMPORAL DEADLINE FOR COMMENCING A LEGAL ACTION.

This Section 17 may be amended from time to time in accordance with Section 1 of these Terms of Use. If you did not opt out of mandatory arbitration as provided above, You may reject any change we make to this Section 17 by sending us notice within thirty (30) days after first becoming subject to the amended Terms of Use.  Send Your notice rejecting changes to this Section 17 to: In the event of a dispute between You and Rain, to invoke Your right to apply an earlier version of this Section 17, You must retain a copy of Your rejection notice, as well as proof of mailing of Your rejection notice within the prescribed period.  Rain reserves the right to make additional amendments to this Section 17.  If you wish to reject additional changes to this Section 17, You must notify us in accordance with this Section 17 for each change in accordance with the terms hereof.
