2. Description of Aptexx’s Services.

Aptexx currently provides access to an internet-based credit card and on-line electronic checking payment service and an internet/cellular based messaging service to certain corporate affiliates, rental property owners, and rental property managers (each a “Participating Landlord”) and their respective tenants, which facilitates various electronic payment services for monthly rents, periodic rents, security deposits, other deposits, utility payments, other payments and all other fees and charges related to leased space, fixed or variable, as well as communication by and between a Participating Landlord and their tenants (the “Service”). Aptexx’s Service is provided to the Participating Landlords and their respective tenants in conjunction with certain third party, affiliated service providers including, without limitation, the payment processor affiliate(s) who are responsible for the collection and remission of all payments made on the Site (the “Participating Affiliates”). You, as the tenant of a Participating Landlord, are eligible to use the Services to pay your rent and any related fees and charges associated with your tenancy which are allowed under Aptexx’s service agreements with the Participating Landlord and Participating Affiliates. Your credit card and on-line electronic checking payments made through the Service will be remitted to your Participating Landlord in accordance with Aptexx’s service agreement with the Participating Landlord and Participating Affiliates. You will receive a timely written confirmation from Aptexx acknowledging Aptexx’s receipt of your credit card or on-line electronic checking payments. Unless explicitly stated otherwise, any new features which enhance or augment Aptexx’s current service offering shall be subject to the then current Terms and Conditions of Use and Service. In order to use the Site and the Service, you must obtain access to the World Wide Web and/or Internet as well as a cellular network, either directly or through certain devices that access web-based content and a cellular network, and you hereby understand and agree that you are solely responsible for paying any and all service fees associated with such access including, without limitation, any and all fees or charges associated with the connection to, transmission over, or receipt of messages or data from the World Wide Web and/or Internet or a cellular network resulting from the Service and the Site which may be charged to you by any applicable third party service provider. In addition, you must supply, at your own expense, all necessary equipment to connect to the World Wide Web and/or Internet and a cellular network, including, without limitation, a computer, a modem, mobile phone, or other access devices.

5. Payment Cancellation, Credit and Refunds.

For payments you believe were accidentally or otherwise improperly made by you through the Service, you may cancel, void or otherwise rescind any such rent payment or other payment made through the Service but only through the options to do so on the Site and as otherwise presented by the Service; provided, however, that any such cancelling voiding or rescinding (i) must be performed by you through the Service prior to the time of posting of such payment by the Service, which triggers the remittance of such payment to your Participating Landlord; and (ii) is further subject to all the rules, restrictions, and information regarding such canceling, voiding or rescinding, as such may be stated on the Site or otherwise presented by the Service. If a rent payment dispute arises at any time after such payment is posted by the Service and thereby made to your Participating Landlord using the Service, you should contact your Participating Landlord directly, as the responsibility to settle the rent payment dispute rests with you and your Participating Landlord; provided, however, that to the degree that any such dispute arises as a result of the Service, your Participating Landlord shall serve as a liason between you and Aptexx and any applicable Participating Affiliate, and only the Participating Landlord shall contact Aptexx to resolve such disputed payment.

You hereby acknowledge, understand, and agree that your Participating Landlord has the capability through the Service to reject, in its sole and absolute discretion, any and all payments tendered by you through the Service prior to any such payment being posted by the Participating Landlord to your account with the Participating Landlord and that Aptexx has no control over the actions of the Participating Landlord with respect to this option, and, as such, Aptexx shall have no liability to you or any other third party for any such action performed by the Participating Landlord in their sole and absolute discretion.
