ARBITRATION NOTICE AND CLASS ACTION WAIVER: EXCEPT FOR CERTAIN TYPES OF DISPUTES DESCRIBED IN THE ARBITRATION SECTION BELOW, YOU AGREE THAT DISPUTES BETWEEN YOU AND US WILL BE RESOLVED BY BINDING, INDIVIDUAL ARBITRATION AND YOU WAIVE YOUR RIGHT TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION LAWSUIT OR CLASS-WIDE ARBITRATION.
To sign up for a Petal Credit Card or take advantage of many of the services we offer, you must register for an account on the Services (an “Account”). You must provide accurate and complete information and keep your Account information updated. By registering, you represent and warrant that you are providing accurate and complete information and that you will keep your Account information updated. You are responsible for the activity that occurs on your Account, and for keeping your Account password secure. You may be held liable for losses or damages incurred by us or any other user of or visitor to the Services due to someone else using your user name, ID, password, or other information which provides access to the Services. You may never use another person’s user account or registration information for the Services without permission. You must notify us immediately of any change in your eligibility to use the Services (including any changes to or revocation of any licenses from state authorities), breach of security or unauthorized use of your Account. You should never publish, distribute or post login information for your Account.
Bank Account Information and Authorized Actions
For registered users, your Account information may include access credentials (for example, username and password) that allow you to gain online access to one or more accounts that you maintain with a third-party financial institution and that you choose to designate for use in connection with the Services (each, an “Authorized Bank Account”). We work with one or more Third Party Services (as defined below) that will securely store pursuant to industry standards any Authorized Bank Account access credentials that you provide on the Services and will access your Authorized Bank Accounts for the purposes of providing and improving the services we offer on the Services. You may only provide account access credentials for and authorize us to access valid accounts that you hold in your own name. You may not provide access credentials for an account that is held by a third person. You must update your Account information to reflect any change to the username or password that is associated with any Authorized Bank Account.

Consent to be Contacted
By submitting information to us, including on or through the Services, you are expressly consenting to be contacted by us, including by telephone, email, postal mail or any other reasonable method. By providing us with your wireless phone number, you confirm that you want Petal to send you information we think may be of interest to you, which may include Petal using automated dialing technology, an artificial, or prerecorded voice to call or text you at the wireless number you provided. You further understand that, when you receive a telephone call, text message or email, you may incur a charge from the company that provides you with telecommunications, wireless and/or internet services, and you agree that Petal will have no liability for such charges except to the extent required by applicable law. To stop text messages, you can also simply reply “STOP” to any text message Petal sends you. To stop text message related to fraud, you must call us at 1-855-697-3825. To stop emails, you can follow the opt-out instructions included at the bottom of the emails Petal sends you; if an email does not include these instructions, it is a transactional or relationship message and you cannot opt out of receiving it in the future.
