(Last Updated August 19, 2019)
These terms of service ("Terms of Service") constitute a legal agreement between you and Activehours, Inc., (“Activehours”) a Delaware corporation, and govern use of the Site and the Services and your use of the Site and the Services. As used in these Terms of Service, the words "you" and "your" refer to you, the user of Activehours’s website, device, or applications, as the party agreeing to these Terms of Service. The words "we", "us", "our" and any other variation thereof refer to Activehours. Any reference to "Activehours" in this document includes our directors, officers, employees, contractors, owners, agents, licensors, or licensees. As used in these Terms of Service, the term "Site" includes all websites and all devices or applications that we operate that link to these Terms of Service, pages within each such website, device, or application, any equivalent, mirror, replacement, substitute or backup website, device, or application, and pages that are associated with each such website, device, or application. The use of the word "including" in these Terms of Service to refer to specific examples will be construed to mean "including, without limitation" or "including but not limited to" and will not be construed to mean that the examples given are an exclusive list of the topics covered.
Pay Outs. Activehours offers various tools and functions through the Sites (the "Services"), that can enable you to assess the value of your accrued pay and to access such earned wages prior to payday by obtaining a payout from Activehours (each, a “Pay Out”).
Balance Shield. Activehours also allows you to access earned wages prior to payday in order to help you minimize overdrafts by automatically sending you a payout between $.01 and $100 every time we see that your bank account balance has fallen below $100 (“Balance Shield”).
Health Aid. Activehours also allows you to submit your medical bills (including, medical, dental and vision) to Activehours’s medical billing negotiators to negotiate lower payment options with your medical providers (“Health Aid,” formerly known as “MediPal”). Once you upload a medical bill, Activehours will first determine if the bill is eligible for the Medical Bill Review Service, and then if Activehours determines your bill is eligible for the service, Activehours will send you an update within 48 business hours with either a final report of any available options to lower your medical bill payments that it was able to learn, or requesting further action from you in order to learn what options are available.
Earnin Cash Back Rewards. Activehours also allows you to receive cashback in the form of credit issued to you through your debit card or bank account within 10 days of when you make a Qualified Purchase at participating merchants as further described below (“Earnin Cash Back Rewards”). Rewards will be available to payout 3-5 days after making a Qualified Purchase and each payout will take an additional 3-5 days to be reflected in your associated bank account. A “Qualified Purchase” is a purchase from a participating merchant using your registered card in accordance with the terms of the Offer and these Terms. An "Offer" is the cashback percentage or amount offered by the merchant, which may include, but not limited to, a minimum transaction amount, expiration date, any other additional terms or limitations associated with the offer. There is a $250 cashback limit per transaction.
No Fees or Charges. You are not required to pay any fees or charges to use the Services. There are no fees to obtain a Pay Out, receive a payout for Balance Shield, use Health Aid, or use Earnin Cash Back Rewards. You may make voluntary additional payments in appreciation of the services rendered, but you are not required to pay any charge or fee to be eligible to receive or in return for receiving the Services. These voluntary additional payments help fund Activehours.
When you enroll in Balance Shield, you may select a voluntary additional amount to pay in appreciation of the services rendered each time Balance Shield is automatically activated. If your payout under Balance Shield is less than $100, your voluntary additional payment amount will be prorated based on the amount of money that Balance Shield cashes out. You can turn Balance Shield on or off, and/or edit your pre-selected voluntary payment amount at any time. We will also send you an annual reminder informing you that Balance Shield is still turned on and of the preselected voluntary payment amount you chose.
No Obligation to Repay. We will have no legal or contractual claim or remedy against you based on your failure to repay, however, if we are unable to access funds from your bank account to complete a payment that you authorized Activehours to take, you will be prevented from using the Services until you pay any outstanding authorized payment to Activehours. Activehours will not engage in any debt collection activities if the payout is not repaid on the scheduled date, place the payout as a debt with or sell it to a third party, or report to a consumer reporting agency concerning the amount of the payout.

Activehours offers Health Aid (formerly known as “MediPal”) to allow you to submit your medical bills (including, medical, dental and vision) to Activehours’s medical billing negotiators to negotiate lower payment options with your medical providers. Not all medical bills are eligible for Medical Bill Review. Once you upload a medical bill, Activehours will first determine if the bill is eligible for the Medical Bill Review Service, and then if Activehours determines your bill is eligible for the service, Activehours will send you an update within 48 business hours with either a final report of any available options to lower your medical bill payments that it was able to learn, or requesting further action from you in order to learn what options are available. Activehours provides its Medical Bill Review Service for informational purposes only. Activehours does not enter into any binding agreement with third-parties on your behalf or make any payments to any third-parties on your behalf in connection with its Medical Bill Review service.
By submitting documents, including documents containing medical and insurance information, for Medical Bill Review, you agree that you are disclosing the documents to Activehours and expressly authorize Activehours to review the contents of each document. By using Medical Bill Review, you further authorize Activehours to speak to your medical provider, or their representatives, on your behalf about the contents of the documents you submitted for Medical Bill Review. By using Medical Bill Review, you also agree to waive any rights you may have to prevent Activehours from disclosing the content of the documents to your medical provider, or their representatives, on your behalf for the purpose of learning about available payment options to lower your medical bill payments.
Earnin Cash Back Rewards. Activehours offers Earnin Cash Back Rewards to allow you to receive cashback in the form of statement credits issued to you through your debit card or bank account within 10 days of when you make a Qualified Purchase at participating merchants. Rewards will be available to payout 3-5 days after making a Qualified Purchase and each payout will take an additional 3-5 days to be reflected in your associated bank account. A "Qualified Purchase" is a purchase from a participating merchant using your registered card in accordance with the terms of the Offer and these Terms. An "Offer" is the cashback percentage or amount offered by the merchant, which may include, but not limited to, a minimum transaction amount, expiration date, any other additional terms or limitations associated with the offer.

Not all Visa, MasterCard, and American Express cards are eligible for registration. Visa, MasterCard, and American Express Corporate cards, Visa, MasterCard, and American Express Purchasing cards, non-reloadable prepaid cards, government-administered prepaid cards (including EBT cards), healthcare (including Health Savings Account (HSA) or Flexible Spending Account (FSA) or insurance prepaid cards, Visa Buxx, and Visa-, MasterCard-, and American Express-branded cards whose transactions are not processed through the Visa U.S.A payment system, MasterCard payment system, and/or American Express payment system are not eligible to participate.
Not all transactions with your registered Visa, MasterCard and American Express card are tracked by Visa, MasterCard and American Express. You acknowledge that Visa, MasterCard, and American Express may be unable to monitor every transaction made with your enrolled Visa, MasterCard, or American Express card, including PIN-based purchases, purchases you initiate through identification technology that substitutes for a PIN, payments made through other payment methods (such as a digital wallet or a third party payment app, where you may choose your Visa, MasterCard, or American Express card as a funding source but you do not present your card directly to the merchant), payments of existing balances, balance transfers, or transactions that are not processed or submitted through the Visa U.S.A., MasterCard, and American Express payment systems, and that these transactions are not eligible.
If you register a debit card, your transaction must be processed as a ‘credit’ (i.e., signature) transaction to make sure the transaction can be monitored. Do not use a Personal Identification Number (PIN) when paying for your purchases with your enrolled card if you want the transaction to be eligible for rewards or offer completion.
Please note that we use Empyr, Inc. as our service provider to help us operate our program. Your payment card may only be enrolled in one program operated by Empyr, Inc. If you have already enrolled a payment card with a separate program operated by Empyr, Inc., you will be unable to register that card in both Earnin Cash Back Rewards and the other Empyr, Inc.-operated program. You may enroll another payment card in Earnin Cash Back Rewards or deactivate your card in the other Empyr, Inc.-operated program.
Earnin Cash Back Rewards statement credits will not appear or be reflected on your transaction receipt from the Merchant at the time of purchase, and will instead be reflected as part of the aggregate amount received from Earnin. Subject to eligibility verification and settlement of the Qualifying Transaction, statement credits will typically appear as part of your Earnin balance within approximately 10 days of the qualifying transaction, but may be subject to delays.
Earnin Cash Back Rewards Statement credits cannot be processed if your card number expires or changes while the statement credit is pending and not settled, or your card account is not open or in good standing. You may not receive a statement credit if it is not posted by your card issuer. Activehours, the applicable card network, and your issuer have no responsibility or liability for the failure of a statement credit to be posted, or for any finance or other charge, or impact on any rewards, feature, or term of your account resulting from the statement credit.
In no event will the applicable card network be considered as maintaining any type of financial obligation or deposit or other asset account, or holding funds or other value for you for distribution to you. Any pending statement credits and any associated dollar values represent offer fulfillment amounts in process owed by the applicable merchant, and not your funds or balances maintained or held by the payment card network or Activehours.
Earnin may choose to share a portion of its Empyr publisher fee with Earnin Cash Back Rewards customers, but is not required to share any portion and may cease sharing its portion at any time, with or without notice.
9. Your Use of the Services
Your right to access and use the Sites and use the Services is personal to you and is not transferable by you to any other person or entity, and you may only access and use the Sites and Services for lawful purposes.
When you request a Pay Out or turn on Balance Shield, you warrant that the earned wages being paid out are just and due to you and that you have not received payment for such wages or any part of the wages from anyone else.
We will recoup payment for Pay Outs or a payout for Balance Shield directly from your bank account upon deposit of your next paycheck. By requesting a Pay Out or turning on Balance Shield, you authorize us to initiate debit and credit entries to your bank account, or if you link a debit card to your account, you authorize us to charge your debit card, for all payments due to us. You agree to maintain a balance that is sufficient to fund all payments you initiate. Activehours reserves the right to charge your bank account at any time on or after the day the paycheck associated with the earned wages you have requested are expected to deposit into your account; however, Activehours will attempt to avoid charging your bank account if we believe your bank account does not contain sufficient funds to cover repayment of a Pay Out or payout for Balance Shield in the pay period. Our failure to charge your bank account for repayment of a Pay Out or payout for Balance Shield within a set amount of time does not constitute a waiver of our right to charge your account for such funds. You represent and warrant that you have the right to authorize us to charge your account for payments due to us under these Terms. You will indemnify and hold Activehours harmless from any claims by any other owner of the account.
Activehours’ authorization to initiate debit and credit entries to your bank account will remain in full force and effect until you revoke your authorization. If you wish to revoke your authorization, you may do so by contacting email@example.com at least three business days before the day the transaction is scheduled and stop using the Sites and the Services. Please note that your revocation of authorization when transactions are pending could result in delays to your receipt of funds and additional charges owed by you to Activehours. You are responsible for any costs or damages related to the timing of authorization revocation.
If we are unable to access funds from your bank account to complete a payment that is owed to Activehours, we will have no legal or contractual claim or remedy against you based on your failure to repay, however, you will be prevented from using the Services until you repay any outstanding balance owed to Activehours. Activehours will not engage in any debt collection activities if the payout is not repaid on the scheduled date, place the payout as a debt with or sell it to a third party, or report to a consumer reporting agency concerning the amount of the payout. You further agree that:
you will reimburse Activehours for any fees imposed on us as a result of the failed transaction; and
you will reimburse Activehours for any fees we incur in attempting to debit the amount of the failed transaction from you.
Activehours is not responsible for any overdraft fees, over-the-limit fees, or insufficient fund charges (including finance charges, late fees, or similar charges) that result from your failure to maintain a balance or available credit in the bank account that is sufficient to fund all payments you initiate.
