What are the requirements to use the Services?
For our compliance purposes and in order to provide the Services to you, you hereby authorize us to, directly or through a third-party, obtain, verify, and record information and documentation that helps us verify your identity and Bank Account information. When you register for the Services and from time to time thereafter, we may require you to provide and/or confirm information and documentation that will allow us to identify you, such as:
- A copy of your government-issued photo ID, such as a passport or driver’s license;
- A copy of a utility bill, bank statement, affidavit, or other bill, dated within three months of our request, with your name and U.S. street address on it; and
- Such other information and documentation that we may require from time to time.
By using the Services and providing User Information to us, you automatically authorize us to obtain, directly or indirectly through our third-party service providers and without any time limit or the requirement to pay any fees, information about you and your Bank Account from the financial institution holding your Bank Account and other third-party websites and databases as necessary to provide the Services to you. For purposes of such authorization, you hereby grant Track and our third-party service providers a limited power of attorney, and you hereby appoint Track and our third-party service providers as your true and lawful attorney-in-fact and agent, with full power of substitution and resubstitution, for you and in your name, place, and stead, in any and all capacities, to access third-party websites, servers, and documents; retrieve information; and use your User Information, all as described above, with the full power and authority to do and perform each and every act and thing requisite and necessary to be done in connection with such activities, as fully to all intents and purposes as you might or could do in person. YOU ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT WHEN TRACK OR OUR THIRD-PARTY SERVICE PROVIDERS ACCESS AND RETRIEVE INFORMATION FROM SUCH THIRD-PARTY WEBSITES, TRACK AND OUR THIRD-PARTY SERVICE PROVIDERS ARE ACTING AS YOUR AGENT, AND NOT THE AGENT OR ON BEHALF OF THE THIRD PARTY. You agree that other third parties shall be entitled to rely on the foregoing authorization, agency, and power of attorney granted by you. You understand and agree that the Services are not endorsed or sponsored by any third-party account providers accessible through the Services. We make no effort to review information obtained from the financial institution holding your Bank Account and other third-party websites and databases for any purpose, including, but not limited to, accuracy, legality, or non-infringement. As between Track and our third-party service providers, Track owns your confidential User Information.
How do I use the Services?
The purpose of the Services is to try to help you save money for self-employment taxes with minimal effort. We monitor and analyze your Bank Account. Based upon our analytics, we interact with you to identify credit transactions in your Bank Account that may be self-employment income of which we will help you estimate your tax liability. Based on a combination of your responses and our analytics, Track will calculate an estimate that you could consider saving for taxes. Based upon your ACH authorization provided above, we may periodically transfer such funds from your Bank Account to your Track Account via ACH. Only funds from your Bank Account may be transferred to your Track Account. The funds in your Track Account are FDIC-insured and held at a bank for your benefit.
Your funds will remain in your Track Account until 1) the day you have authorized Track to transfer a quarterly estimate payment to the IRS, or 2) until you instruct us to transfer any or all of your funds from your Track Account to your Bank Account by clicking a "WITHDRAWAL" button/link in our web app or by emailing us at email@example.com. We will generally transfer the requested funds from your Track Account to your Bank Account within two Business Days of when we receive your request. It is important to know the amount of available funds in your Track Account before instructing us to transfer funds from your Track Account to your Bank Account. If you do not have sufficient available funds in your Track Account to cover the amount of the requested transfer, your request for the transfer will be declined. We may also transfer funds from your Track Account to your Bank Account without notice to you upon the closure of your Track Account as described below and at any time if required by applicable law or if we, in our sole discretion, suspect the Services are being used for illicit purposes or otherwise in violation of these Terms.
You may not use the funds in your Track Account to make purchases, withdraw cash, transfer funds to third parties, or for any other purpose. You are solely responsible for determining whether the funds debited from your Bank Account and the funds maintained in your Track Account are acceptable to you. We are not responsible for any third-party fees that may be incurred as a result of using the Services, including, but not limited to, third-party fees incurred as a result of maintaining insufficient funds in your Bank Account.
Track is not a tax preparer, tax attorney, accountant or financial adviser, and the Services are not intended to provide financial advice. Your financial situation is unique. We are not responsible for ensuring your Bank Account has sufficient funds for your needs, purposes, or transactions. We do not make any representations, warranties, or guarantees of any kind that the Services are appropriate for you. Before using the Services, you should consider obtaining additional information and advice from a financial adviser.
Information and interactive calculators are made available to you as self-help tools for your independent use and are not intended to provide investment or tax advice. We cannot and do not guarantee their applicability or accuracy in regards to your individual circumstances. All examples are hypothetical and are for illustrative purposes. We encourage you to seek personalized advice from qualified professionals regarding all personal finance or tax issues.
For more information about the Services, please review these Terms.
How do I check the balance in my Track Account?
Will I receive interest on the funds held in my Track Account?
You agree that you will not receive interest or other earnings on the funds in your Track Account. You irrevocably transfer and assign to Track any and all rights that you may have to any interest that may accrue on funds held in your Track Account. This assignment applies only to interest earned on the funds held in your Track Account, and nothing in these Terms grants Track any rights to the principal of the funds held in your Track Account.
Are there any fees for using the Services?
Track's tax calculator and withholding services are free of charge. If you elect to or have the auto-file option turned on in your account's settings we will charge you $30 USD to file your quarterly tax estimates with the IRS. We reserve the right to waive, discount or charge fees for any Services in the future. We will notify you before charging a fee for the Services by delivering notice to you electronically, by posting such fee on the Website, or by any other method permitted by applicable law. If you continue using the Services after such notice, you must pay all applicable fees for the Services.

THE SERVICES ARE PROVIDED ON AN "AS IS" AND "AS AVAILABLE" BASIS WITHOUT ANY WARRANTY OF ANY KIND. TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, WE AND OUR THIRD-PARTY SERVICE PROVIDERS EXPRESSLY DISCLAIM ANY AND ALL CONDITIONS, REPRESENTATIONS, AND WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND AS TO THE SERVICES AND ALL INFORMATION, PRODUCTS, AND OTHER CONTENT (INCLUDING THAT OF THIRD PARTIES) INCLUDED IN OR ACCESSIBLE FROM THE SERVICES, WHETHER EXPRESS, IMPLIED, STATUTORY, OR OTHERWISE, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, ANY IMPLIED WARRANTY OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, AND NON-INFRINGEMENT.

At our request, you agree to defend, indemnify, and hold harmless Track, its affiliates, and its and their respective employees, officers, directors, agents, and third-party service providers from and against any and all claims, suits, liabilities, damages (actual and consequential), losses, fines, penalties, costs, and expenses (including reasonable attorneys’ fees) arising from or in any way related to any third-party claims relating to your use of the Services, violation of these Terms, applicable law or any third-party rights, or your fraud or willful misconduct.

Governing Law. These Terms are made under and will be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of California, consistent with the Federal Arbitration Act, without giving effect to any principles that provide for the application of the law of another jurisdiction.
DISPUTE RESOLUTION BY BINDING ARBITRATION; JURY TRIAL WAIVER; CLASS ACTION WAIVER. For any and all controversies, disputes, demands, claims, or causes of action between you and us (including the interpretation and scope of this Section and the arbitrability of the controversy, dispute, demand, claim, or cause of action) relating to the Services or these Terms (as well as any related or prior agreement that you may have had with us), you and we agree to resolve any such controversy, dispute, demand, claim, or cause of action exclusively through binding and confidential arbitration. The arbitration will take place in the federal judicial district of your residence. As used in this Section, "we" and "us" mean Track and its subsidiaries, affiliates, predecessors, successors, and assigns and all of its and their respective employees, officers, directors, agents, and representatives. In addition, "we" and "us" include any third party providing any product, service, or benefit in connection with the Services or these Terms (as well as any related or prior agreement that you may have had with us) if such third party is named as a co-party with us in any controversy, dispute, demand, claim, or cause of action subject to this Section.
Arbitration will be subject to the Federal Arbitration Act and not any state arbitration law. The arbitration will be conducted before one commercial arbitrator from the American Arbitration Association ("AAA") with substantial experience in resolving commercial contract disputes. As modified by these Terms, and unless otherwise agreed upon by the parties in writing, the arbitration will be governed by the AAA’s Commercial Arbitration Rules and, if the arbitrator deems them applicable, the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes (collectively, the "Rules and Procedures").
You should review this provision carefully. To the extent permitted by applicable law, you are GIVING UP YOUR RIGHT TO GO TO COURT to assert or defend your rights EXCEPT for matters that you file in small claims court in the state or municipality of your residence within the jurisdictional limits of the small claims court and as long as such matter is only pending in that court. Additionally, notwithstanding this agreement to arbitrate, either party may seek emergency equitable relief in federal court if it has jurisdiction or, if it does not, in a state court located in the federal judicial district of your residence in order to maintain the status quo pending arbitration, and each party hereby agrees to submit to the exclusive personal jurisdiction of the courts located within the federal judicial district of your residence for such purpose. A request for interim measures will not be deemed a waiver of the obligation to arbitrate.
Your rights will be determined by a NEUTRAL ARBITRATOR and NOT a judge or jury. You are entitled to a FAIR HEARING, BUT the arbitration procedures may be SIMPLER AND MORE LIMITED THAN RULES APPLICABLE IN COURT. Arbitrators’ decisions are as enforceable as any court order and are subject to VERY LIMITED REVIEW BY A COURT.
You and we must abide by the following rules: (A) ANY CLAIMS BROUGHT BY YOU OR US MUST BE BROUGHT IN THE PARTY’S INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING; (B) THE ARBITRATOR MAY NOT CONSOLIDATE MORE THAN ONE PERSON’S CLAIMS, MAY NOT OTHERWISE PRESIDE OVER ANY FORM OF A REPRESENTATIVE OR CLASS PROCEEDING, AND MAY NOT AWARD CLASS-WIDE RELIEF; (c) in the event that you are able to demonstrate that the costs of arbitration will be prohibitive as compared to the costs of litigation, we will pay as much of your filing and hearing fees in connection with the arbitration as the arbitrator deems necessary to prevent the arbitration from being cost-prohibitive as compared to the cost of litigation, (d) we also reserve the right, in our sole and exclusive discretion, to assume responsibility for any or all of the costs of the arbitration; (e) the arbitrator will honor claims of privilege and privacy recognized at law; (f) the arbitration will be confidential, and neither you nor we may disclose the existence, content, or results of any arbitration, except as may be required by applicable law or for purposes of enforcement of the arbitration award; (g) subject to the limitation of liability provisions of these Terms, the arbitrator may award any individual relief or individual remedies that are expressly permitted by applicable law; and (h) each party will pay its own attorneys’ fees and expenses, unless there is a statutory provision that requires the prevailing party to be paid its fees and litigation expenses and the arbitrator awards such attorneys’ fees and expenses to the prevailing party, and, in such instance, the fees and costs awarded will be determined by the applicable law.
This Section will survive termination of your Track Account and these Terms as well as any voluntary payment of any debt in full by you or any bankruptcy by you or us. With the exception of subparts (a) and (b) of this Section (prohibiting arbitration on a class or collective basis), if any part of this arbitration provision is deemed to be invalid, unenforceable, or illegal, or otherwise conflicts with the Rules and Procedures, then the balance of this arbitration provision will remain in effect and will be construed in accordance with its terms as if the invalid, unenforceable, illegal, or conflicting part was not contained herein. If, however, either subpart (a) or (b) of this Section is found to be invalid, unenforceable, or illegal, then the entirety of this arbitration provision will be null and void, and neither you nor we will be entitled to arbitration. If for any reason a claim proceeds in court rather than in arbitration, the dispute will be exclusively brought in federal court if it has jurisdiction or, if it does not, in a state court located in the federal judicial district of your residence.
If you wish to opt out of this arbitration provision, you must notify us of your election in writing within 30 days of the date that you first became subject to this arbitration provision or within 30 days of the effective date of any material change to these Terms by sending a written notice to us by certified mail at the following address: Track Technologies, Inc., 814 Mission St, San Francisco, CA 94103, Attn: Arbitration Opt-Out. Your opt-out notice must include your name, address, phone number, and email address.
For more information on the AAA, the Rules and Procedures, or the process for filing an arbitration claim, you may call the AAA at 800-778-7879 or visit the AAA website at http://www.adr.org.

Transactions History and Disputes
All questions regarding EFT transactions or your SynapseFI User Account must be directed to email@example.com and not to SynapseFI or its financial institution partners. Track is responsible for resolving issues and errors relating to transactions and account balances. If you wish to make a financial service complaint against Track, you may email firstname.lastname@example.org.
You understand that because our Services deals with electronic transactions, funds may be withdrawn from your account as soon as the transaction is approved. You agree to not dispute Track debiting your checking/savings account, so long as the transaction corresponds to the terms indicated in the SMS, email, or in-app authorization.
There are two ways in which Electronic Funds Transfers (EFTs) can be initiated with Track.
One Time Transactions. In this case you give Track explicit permission on a per transaction basis to move funds on your behalf. Such use-cases include but are not limited to: IRS payments, withdrawals of funds from your Track Account, tax withholding deposits in to your Track Account, or one time billing charges or fee collections. One Time Transactions only occur with your permission designated by an action performed by you. Such actions include but are not limited to: a setting change, button click or checkbox marked. By taking such actions you are authorizing Track to debit the account indicated for the amount noted on the action's date. You will not dispute Track debiting your account, so long as the transaction corresponds to the original terms and your agreement with Track.
Recurring Transactions. In this case you give Track permission to move funds automatically on your behalf on some recurring basis. Such use-cases include but are not limited to: Automatic tax withholding into your Track Account and periodic subscription-based service charges. Recurring Transactions begin only with your permission designated by an action performed by you. Such actions include but are not limited to: a setting change, button click or checkbox marked. By taking such actions you are authorizing Track to debit the account indicated for the recurring transactions according to the original terms and your agreement with Track. You will not dispute Track so long as the transactions correspond to such terms. Any recurring transaction payment authorization is valid and will remain effective unless you cancel this authorization by emailing Track at email@example.com at least 3 business days in advance.
Will Track ever change these Terms or the Services?
We may add to or terminate any of the Services or amend these Terms at any time, in our sole discretion, without providing notice to you, subject to applicable law.

ELECTRONIC FUND TRANSFER DISCLOSURE STATEMENT
The following disclosures are made in accordance with the federal law regarding electronic payments, deposits, transfers of funds and other electronic transfers to and from your account(s). There may be limitations on account activity that restrict your ability to make electronic fund transfers. Any such limits are disclosed in the appropriate agreements governing your account. A. Definitions: Electronic Fund Transfer: Any transfer of funds, other than a transaction originated by check, draft or similar paper instrument, that is initiated through an electronic device or computer to instruct us to debit or credit an account. Electronic Fund Transfers include such electronic transactions as direct deposits or withdrawals of funds, transfers initiated via telephone, website or mobile application. Preauthorized Electronic Fund Transfer: An Electronic Fund Transfer that you have authorized in advance to recur at substantially regular intervals; for example, direct deposits into or withdrawal of funds out of your account.B. Your Liability: Authorized Transfers: You are liable for all Electronic Fund Transfers that you authorize, whether directly or indirectly. Unauthorized Transfers: Tell us at once if you believe your account or PIN or Access Information (as defined below) is lost or stolen or has been or may be subject to unauthorized Electronic Fund Transfers. Support message us immediately to keep your possible losses to a minimum. You could lose all the money in your account(s). If you tell us within two (2) business days after learning of the loss or theft of your account access device, or after learning of any other unauthorized transfers from your account involving your account access device, you can lose no more than $50 if Electronic Fund Transfers are made without your permission. For these transactions, if you DO NOT tell us within two (2) business days after learning of the loss, theft or unauthorized use, and we can establish that we could have prevented the unauthorized transfer(s) if you had told us in time, you could lose as much as $500. Also, if your periodic account statement shows unauthorized transfers and you DO NOT tell us within sixty (60) days after the statement was delivered to you, you may not get back any money you lose after the sixty (60) day period if we can prove that we could have prevented the unauthorized transfer(s) if you had told us in time. If an extenuating circumstance (such as extended travel or hospitalization) prevents you from promptly notifying us of a suspected lost or stolen access device or of any other suspected unauthorized transfer(s), the time periods specified in this Section B may be extended for a reasonable period.
(1) Errors or Questions about Transactions
Please contact us by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org (1) if you believe a transaction receipt or a statement is wrong, or (2) if you need more information about a transaction on the receipt or statement. For consumer accounts, we must hear from you no later than sixty (60) days after we sent you the first statement on which the error or problem appeared. For business accounts, we must hear from you within one (1) business day of us sending you a receipt. Your inquiry must include: (x) your name, email associated with your account, and your account number (if available); (y) a description of the error or the transaction you are unsure about, and a clear explanation of why you believe there is an error or why you need more information; and (z) the dollar amount of the suspected error. If you tell us orally, we may require that you send us your inquiry via email within ten (10) business days.

• The alleged error involves an account that is subject to Regulation T (Securities Credit by Brokers and Dealers, 12 CFR part 220)
(2) Informs the consumer, within two business days after the provisional crediting, of the amount and date of the provisional crediting and gives the consumer full use of the funds during the investigation;
