Our suppliers rely on authorized third-party payment processors in order to bill you through a payment account linked to you, and henceforth you hereby designate us as payment agent in order to transmit your personal information to such third party payment processors, which are the ones that made the charges, not us.

You can be assessed charge-backs for: (i) customer disputes; (ii) unauthorized or improperly authorized transactions; (iii) transactions that do not comply with payment processor network rules or are allegedly unlawful or suspicious; or (iv) any reversals for any reason by our payment processor or the institutions handling the transaction.

Accordingly, you hereby represent and warrant that you expressly appoint Polisystems as your agent, with full power to recover these amounts by debiting your account or setting off any amounts owed to you by us.

If the customer does not fulfill these reception and cooperation obligations, Polisystems is released from the obligation to continue providing services to it. After sending a warning to the customer, Polisystems can further invoice the costs incurred up to that point, the payment of which will become due immediately.
