For valuable consideration, you agree to sell and transfer to Payfare, all right, title and interest in and to those Receivables. You agree not to assign or attempt to assign any Receivables that you do not have the complete right, title and interest in or that have already been assigned elsewhere.
You represent and warrant that the Receivables are just and due and that you have not received payment for the Receivables or any part of the Receivables.

We may limit the total value of Receivables purchased from you at any given time or over a period of time. We may, at our sole discretion, refuse to purchase Receivables when we reasonably believe such refusal is necessary or advisable for legal or security reasons.
Payfare does not assume any responsibility for the timeliness or accuracy of information relating to transactions or Receivables within your Third-Party Account. Any Receivables purchased shall be based upon the information that we most recently accessed, and as such, may not accurately reflect activity that occurred after we last accessed the applicable Third Party Account or any pending transactions.

Information We Collect And Sources Of Information:

We collect your personal information only as required to provide Our Services to you, which includes the following purposes: responding to your queries, identification, account creation and management, servicing and marketing purposes. We obtain information about you directly from you (e.g., if you submit information to us through our website or applications), through your use of Our Services, and from third parties (such as credit bureaus and demographic firms). Occasionally, we may also collect information about you online using “cookies” (small pieces of data stored by your Internet browser on your computer) or other tracking technology that may be used to remember passwords for you, to track your website usage with us and to provide you with customized content among other things. You may choose to decline cookies if your browser permits, but doing so may affect your use of the website and your ability to access certain features of the website or engage in transactions through the website.
Your information that is collected will be used and disclosed solely for the purposes of complying with law and to provide you with Our Services. There are certain situations where we will disclose your personal information such as:
- When we are required or authorized by law to do so (e.g., if a court issues a subpoena);
- When you have consented to the disclosure;
- When the services we are providing to you require us to give your information to a third-party service provider (please see below);
- When it is necessary to establish or collect amounts owed to us.
We share your personal information with service providers (e.g. payment processors) in order to provide Our Services to you. Our service providers are not authorized by us to use or disclose your information except as necessary to perform services on our behalf or comply with legal requirements. If you do not wish us to provide your personal information to those service providers, we may be unable to provide you with Our Services or adequately respond to your query.

For example, we may deny access when granting access would have an unreasonable impact on other people’s privacy or when necessary to protect our confidential commercial information and the requested information cannot be severed from the balance of the record in which it is contained. If we deny your request for access to, or refuse a request to correct information, we shall explain why.
