TERMINATING YOUR EARNIN ACCOUNT

You may close your account and terminate your relationship with us without termination fees. However, if we have been unable to recoup payment of a Cash Out from Earnin, you will be unable to use the Services and Site even if you reactivate your account and sign up again until we are able to recoup any unreimbursed Cash Outs.

EARNIN SERVICES

Once we have verified the Required Identifying Information that you provide to us, you will be able to begin using Earnin’s Services and Site. If we have not verified the Required Identifying Information that you have provided to us, you have not provided all the Required Identifying Information, or you have not completed the account registration process, you may be unable to use Earnin’s Services and Site.

NO REQUIRED FEES OR CHARGES

You are not required to pay any fees or charges to use any of the Earnin Services. There are no required fees to obtain a Cash Out, Max Boost, set alerts for a Balance Shield or set a manual Balance Shield Cash Out, use Health Aid, enroll in Earnin Express, enroll in Earnin Cash Back Rewards and/or enroll Tip Yourself. You may make voluntary tips to Earnin in appreciation of the Site and/or 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. Please note that while tips are non-refundable, if you need help in changing your tip amount, please live chat the Earnin team via the mobile app. These voluntary tips help fund us and keep us going, but we want you to be in control of if, when, and how much to tip. You will never be denied access to the Services on the basis of not tipping or the amount of any tip you choose to leave. For more information about voluntary tips please reference the specific service below.

We believe that the world is a better place when we all help each other out. You can support our Services by tipping what you think is fair and/or by “paying it forward” to others within the Earnin community by increasing your tip amount. With all of Earnin’s Services and the Site, you choose whether to pay, what to pay, and how often you pay.

Cash Out. Allows you to access some or all of various forms of income (such as your earned wages, government benefit checks, etc.) by requesting a “Cash Out” prior to when that income is deposited into your Bank Account. You will have a set “Daily Max”, which is the maximum you are allowed to Cash Out in one day, as well as a “Pay Period Max”, which is the maximum amount you can Cash Out before the next scheduled deposit. All Earnin community members start with a $100 Pay Period Max, with a potential for it to increase up to $500. We have the right to adjust your maxes at any time. Your maxes are determined based on an evaluation of a number of factors we have identified that we believe are related to evaluating your financial health. These factors may be changed at any time, at our sole discretion. We may also limit the number Cash Outs that you can request at any given time or over a period of time, or decline to extend a Cash Out to you if we reasonably believe such refusal is necessary or advisable for legal or security reasons or to protect the Services. Cash Out Services require you to provide your debit card information to Earnin as well.

Max Boost. As part of Earnin’s Cash Out Services, you may be offered the opportunity to participate in Max Boost. Max Boost allows you to request a Max boost from another Earnin member in the program (the “Grantor”) by providing you a unique link to send to the Grantor; and if the Grantor approves the request you will get a temporary $50 pay period Max increase which you can then Cash Out. This temporary Max Boost will expire at the end of the pay period. Grantors are not required to approve a Max Boost request, and there is no financial or legal obligation on the Grantor. We may cancel an approved Max Boost if you are no longer at your pay period Max, or if we reasonably believe such refusal is necessary or advisable for legal or security reasons, or to protect the Services. Cash Out Services require you to provide your debit card information to Earnin as well.

There are no fees or costs associated with Cash Out or Max Boost. As outlined above, Earnin accepts voluntary tips in appreciation for Services rendered. We appreciate the tip if you can and however much you feel is fair- anywhere from $0-$14 for Cash Out and Max Boost. We like putting you in control.

Lightning Speed. Depending on your bank, your debit card information, or banking routing number and Bank Account information, you may be able to Cash Out with Lightning Speed, a service that enables funds associated with Cash Outs to be expedited. If Lightning Speed is unavailable to you, you will generally receive your Cash Out within the next 2-3 Banking Days after you request a Cash Out in your Bank Account. Otherwise, you should be able to receive your Cash Out within the same Banking Day. Fees may apply to Lightning Speed in some instances.

Balance Shield. Allows you to set an alert to have Earnin send you a notification when your Bank Account falls below an amount that you set ($0-$400) to help you monitor your Bank Account's balance. Balance Shield also incorporates Cash Out, by automatically setting a cash out of up to $100 when your Bank Account balance has fallen below $100. Note, that a Balance Shield Cash Out is subject to your available earned wages, your Daily Max and Pay Period Max requirements. You are responsible for monitoring your Daily Max and Pay Period Max to ensure that the Cash Out application of Balance Shield is available to you. We may limit the amount we send you for Balance Shield Cash Out at any given time or over a period of time. We may also decline to offer Balance Shield to you at any time, without prior notice, if we reasonably believe such refusal is necessary or advisable for legal or security reasons, or to protect the Services.

Balance Shield alerts can stay on indefinitely until you turn them off. There is no fee or charge to use Balance Shield alerts. Generally, Balance Shield Cash Out will need be turned on manually after each Balance Shield Cash Out, however, setting a voluntary tip ($1.50-$14.50) triggers Earnin to automatically keep Balance Shield Cash Out on even after a Balance Shield Cash Out. If you choose to enable Balance Shield Cash Out to activate automatically, Balance Shield Cash Out will stay on indefinitely until you turn it off, and will automatically debit your account for the amount and tip you have set. Earnin will send you an annual reminder that Balance Shield is turned on.

Earnin Express. This service is provided to you through a partnership between Earnin and Evolve Bank & Trust, an Arkansas chartered depository institution. Evolve Bank & Trust is a member of the FDIC. The deposit account (the “Earnin Express Account”) provided to you in connection with the Earnin services is provided to you by Evolve Bank & Trust and is subject to a deposit account agreement between you and Evolve Bank & Trust. You may access the terms of such agreement at any time here.

By signing up for Earnin Express, you will authorize us to obtain Required Identifying Information, directly or indirectly through our third-party service providers, information about you and your Bank Account from the financial institution holding your Bank Account and other third-party websites and databases that may be necessary to provide the services. We make no effort to review such information for any purpose, including, but not limited to, accuracy, legality, or non-infringement. You agree that our third-party service providers and the operators and owners of the third-party websites will be entitled to rely on the foregoing authorization granted by you. Once Earnin is able to verify your identity, you will be automatically enrolled in Earnin Express and, subject to Evolve Bank & Trust’s approval, an Earnin Express Account will be set up on your behalf.

Your Earnin Express Pay Period Max will be the lesser of $1,000, or up to 80% of the amount of funds you direct from your paycheck to your Earnin Express Account. If you direct funds outside of your paycheck to your Earnin Express Account, those funds will not count towards your Pay Period Max and will be credited to your Bank Account. You may obtain information about the balance of funds in your Earnin Express Account at any time in the app. Because Earnin Express requires Lightning Speed, funds from your Earnin Express Account that are to be credited to your Bank Account, will arrive within the same Banking Day. Please note that if Lightning Speed is unavailable, Earnin may move your funds via ACH.

You authorize Earnin to directly debit your Earnin Express Account any outstanding amounts due to Earnin from a Cash Out on the day of your next regularly scheduled paycheck. Failed or rejected fund transfers to repay a Cash Out may be reinitiated at any time up to 150 days from either your Earnin Express Account or your Bank Account.

We may also credit funds from your Earnin Express Account to your Bank Account without notice to you upon the closure of your Earnin Express Account. We will review your Earnin Express Account and direct deposit activity at various times. We may use proprietary fraud and risk modeling when completing this review and assessing the risk associated with your Earnin Express Account. This review checks for, among other things, suspicious or illegal activity, and whether your Earnin Express Account activity complies with these Terms of Service. We may instruct Evolve Bank & Trust to transfer funds from your Earnin Express Account to your Bank Account without notice to you upon the closure of your Earnin Express Account or if we, in our sole discretion, suspect Earnin Express is being used for illicit purposes or otherwise in violation of these Terms of Service.

There are no fees or costs associated with Earnin Express. As outlined above, Earnin accepts voluntary tips in appreciation for Services rendered. We appreciate the tip if you can and however much you feel is fair- anywhere from $0-$14. We like putting you in control.

Both of us may each terminate this Earnin Express relationship unilaterally at any time upon notice. To terminate your participation in Earnin Express, please contact us by emailing support@earnin.com, using live chat with the Earnin team via the mobile app, or closing the Earnin Express Account pursuant to the terms governing the Earnin Express Account. Prior to termination, please ensure that you have switched your direct deposit from your employer away from your Earnin Express Account. Upon notice of termination, we or Evolve Bank & Trust will return any remaining balance in your Earnin Express Account to your Bank Account through an ACH transfer and you will no longer be able to use your Earnin Express Account or Earnin Express Service. For more information click here.

NO OBLIGATION TO REPAY

We will have no legal or contractual claim or remedy against you based on your failure to repay any Cash Out, Max Boost, Balance Shield Cash Out, or Cash Out via Earnin Express you take, however, if we are unable to access funds from your bank account to complete a payment that you authorized Earnin to take, you will be prevented from using the Services until you pay any outstanding authorized payment to Earnin. Earnin will not engage in any debt collection activities if the amount of the Cash Out is not repaid on the scheduled date, place the amount of the Cash Out as a debt with, or sell it to, a third party, or report to a consumer reporting agency concerning the amount of the payout.

Health Aid. If you have created an Earnin account, Health Aid allows you to submit your eligible medical bills to Earnin’s Health Aid team to learn about lower payment options for you with your medical providers. Unfortunately, not all medical bills are eligible for Health Aid. Once you upload a medical bill, we will review and notify you if the medical bill is ineligible. If your medical bill is eligible, Earnin’s Health Aid team will conduct a Medical Bill Review, which may require Earnin to speak to your medical provider or its representatives on your behalf. We will send you an update within 48 business hours with either: a final report of available options (if any) to lower your medical bill payments that Earnin obtained from your medical provider or its representatives, or a request for further action from you, so that Earnin can better gauge what options may be available. Health Aid is for informational purposes only and does not guarantee any results. We do 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 this service.

You agree that by submitting documents, including documents containing medical and insurance information, for Medical Bill Review, you are disclosing the documents to us and expressly authorize us to review the contents of each document. By using Medical Bill Review, you further authorize us 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 us 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.

There are no fees or costs associated with Health Aid. Earnin accepts voluntary tips in appreciation for Services rendered. You can choose to leave a tip in appreciation for using Health Aid, anywhere from $0-1$100, but are under no obligation to do so. We like putting you in control.

Cash Back Rewards. If you have created an Earnin account, you can enroll your debit or credit card in Cash Back Rewards and you will receive cash back in the form of credit to that same card within 10 days of making a Qualified Purchase at participating merchants. Specifically, Cash Back Rewards will be available for redemption 3-5 days after making a Qualified Purchase. Once you choose to redeem, the reward will be reflected in your associated bank account 3-5 days after that. A “Qualified Purchase” is a purchase from a participating merchant using your debit or card in accordance with the terms of the Offer and these Terms of Service. An "Offer" is the cash back 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. There is a $250 cashback limit per transaction.

You may opt-out of Cash Back Rewards at any time by unlink your cards. Within the app, go to Cash Back Rewards, click on “unenroll” and confirm you want to unenroll the card. You must repeat this process for every card you wish to delete.

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 debit or credit card may only be enrolled in one program operated by Empyr, Inc. If you have already enrolled the debit or credit card with a separate program operated by Empyr, Inc., you will be unable to register that card in both Cash Back Rewards and the other Empyr, Inc. operated program. You may enroll another debit or credit card in Cash Back Rewards or deactivate your card in the other Empyr, Inc. operated program.

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.

Cash Back Rewards credits cannot be processed if your debit or credit card number expires or changes while the credit is pending and not settled, or your debit or credit card account is not open or in good standing. You may not receive a credit if it is not posted by your card issuer. Earnin, 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 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 Earnin.

Earnin may choose to share a portion of its Empyr publisher fee with 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.

Tip Yourself.
This service is provided to you through a custodial account deposit agreement between you and Evolve Bank & Trust, an Arkansas chartered depository institution. You may access the terms of such agreement at any time here.

By enrolling in Tip Yourself, you may transfer a chosen dollar amount from your Bank Account to an account that you have with Evolve Bank & Trust, your Tip Yourself Account. The Tip Yourself Service offered by Earnin allows you to better track and meet your savings goals by allowing you to authorize Evolve Bank & Trust to make one-time and/or recurring transfers from your Bank Account to your Tip Yourself Account. Within the Tip Yourself Service you can track your savings towards your specific savings goals by creating different “tip jars". You can create up to 5 tip jars using the Tip Yourself Service to help you better track your personalized savings goals. You may obtain information about the balance of funds in your Tip Yourself Account at any time in the app.

Tip Yourself also has an Automated Savings feature, that allows you to set up scheduled transfers between your Bank Account and your Tip Yourself Account. If you decide to turn on Automated Savings, you can choose a frequency that works for you, and then set up different scheduled transfers for your specific saving goals to your Tip Yourself Account, which will be reflected in your tip jars through the Earnin Tip Yourself Service. You will receive an email notification the evening prior to a scheduled transfer as a reminder. You are responsible for ensuring that your Bank Account has sufficient available funds to cover an Automated Savings transfer as the Tip Yourself Service will not check your Bank Account balance before any scheduled transfers. Earnin or Evolve Bank & Trust is not responsible for overdrafts, insufficient funds fees, or any other third-party fees resulting from insufficient funds related to a transfer from your Bank Account to your Tip Yourself Account. You may pause, skip or change at any time prior to the day of the scheduled transfer your tip yourself amount and authorization.

Only funds from your Bank Account may be transferred to your Tip Yourself Account. You may transfer funds to your Tip Yourself Account via electronic debits from your Bank Account. If you enable “Lightning Speed”, you may fund your Tip Yourself Account within the same Banking Day with your debit card. The funds in your Tip Yourself Account are held at Evolve Bank & Trust for your benefit. You may not use the funds in your Tip Yourself Account to make purchases, transfer funds to third parties, or for any other purpose other than to withdraw such funds to your linked Bank Account. Funds held in your Tip Yourself Account will remain in your Tip Yourself Account until you instruct us to transfer any or all of your funds from your Tip Yourself Account to your Bank Account by requesting such transfer in the app. We, or Evolve Bank & Trust will generally transfer the requested funds from your Tip Yourself Account to your Bank Account within two Banking Days of when we receive your request. It is important to know the amount of available funds in your Tip Yourself Account before instructing us to transfer funds from your Tip Yourself Account to your Bank Account. If you do not have sufficient available funds in your Tip Yourself Account to cover the amount of the requested transfer, your request for the transfer will be declined.

We may instruct Evolve Bank & Trust to transfer funds from your Tip Yourself Account to your Bank Account without notice to you upon the closure of your Tip Yourself Account or if we, in our sole discretion, suspect Tip Yourself is being used for illicit purposes or otherwise in violation of these Terms of Service.

For our compliance purposes and in order to provide 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. You also authorize us to correct any credits or errors made to your Tip Yourself Account. When you register for Tip Yourself and from time to time thereafter, we may require you to provide and/or confirm the information and documentation that will allow us to identify you, including Required Identifying Information.

We will review your Tip Yourself Account and transaction activity at various times, including when you initiate a transfer of funds into or out of your Tip Jar(s). We may use proprietary fraud and risk modeling when completing this review and assessing the risk associated with your Tip Yourself Account. This review checks for, among other things, suspicious or illegal activity, and whether your Tip Yourself Account activity complies with these Terms of Service. Review may result in: delayed, blocked or canceled fund transfers;

By using Tip Yourself and providing user information to us, you authorize us to obtain, directly or indirectly through our third-party service providers, information about you and your bank account from the financial institution holding your bank account and other third-party websites and databases that may be necessary to provide the services. We make no effort to review such information for any purpose, including, but not limited to, accuracy, legality, or non-infringement. You agree that our third-party service providers and the operators and owners of the third-party websites will be entitled to rely on the foregoing authorization granted by you.

There are no fees or costs associated with Tip Yourself Service offered by Earnin.

Both of us may each terminate this Tip Yourself relationship unilaterally at any time upon notice. To terminate your participation in Tip Yourself, please contact us by using live chat with the Earnin team via the mobile app, or closing the Tip Yourself Account pursuant to the terms governing the Tip Yourself Account.

YOUR USE OF THE SERVICES

You may only use the Site and Services for your own personal, non-commercial use and not on behalf of or for the benefit of any third party. Your use of the Site and the Services must comply with all applicable law. If your use of the Site and/or the Services is prohibited by applicable law, then you are not authorized to use the Site and/or the Services. We are not responsible if you use the Site and/or the Services in any manner that violates applicable law.

When you request a Cash Out, Max Boost, Balance Shield Cash Out, or Earnin Express Cash Out, you warrant that the earned wages being cashed 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.

You represent and warrant that you have the right to authorize us and/or Evolve Bank & Trust to credit and debit your Bank Account for credits you request and payments you authorize under these Terms of Service, and you agree to indemnify and hold us and/or Evolve Bank and Trust harmless from any claims by any other owner of the account.

You also agree that any instructions received by us for a Cash Out, Max Boost, Balance Shield Cash Out, or Earnin Express Cash Out from your Earnin username, password or mobile device (collectively “Credentials”) will be considered authorized by you. You understand that the use of any of your Credentials by another person will still be recognized by Earnin as being authorized by you. For example, if you provide your username and password to another person and that person uses that information to request a Cash Out, Max Boost, Balance Shield Cash Out, or Earnin Express Cash Out, we will consider that request as authorized by you. You agree to keep confidential and to take all reasonable precautions and make all reasonable efforts to protect the secrecy of all Credentials issued to you, selected by you, or utilized by you. If you believe your Credentials are no longer secure or confidential, or that someone has used your Credentials without your permission, please contact us immediately by emailing support@earnin.com or live chat with the Earnin team via the mobile app.

DEBITS AND CREDITS

We will debit any payments authorized by you for Cash Outs, Max Boost and Balance Shield Cash Out directly from your Bank Account, and in the case of Earnin Express your Earnin Express Account on the day of your next regularly scheduled paycheck. By requesting a Cash Out, Max Boost or Balance Shield Cash Out, you authorize us to electronically initiate debit and credit entries to your Bank Account, and in the case of Earnin Express your Earnin Express Account; or if you link a debit card to your Earnin account, you authorize us to charge your debit card, for all payments you authorize. You agree to maintain a balance that is sufficient to fund all payments that you initiate. We reserve the right to charge your Bank Account, and in the case of Earnin Express your Earnin Express Account, at any time on or after the day the paycheck associated with the earned wages you have requested is expected to deposit into your Bank Account or Earnin Express Account. Our failure to debit your Bank Account or Earnin Express Account for amounts due to Earnin within a set amount of time does not constitute a waiver of our right to charge your account for such funds. We will initiate debits to your Bank Account and Earnin Express Account or debit card as permitted by applicable laws and NACHA rules. Failed or rejected debits may be reinitiated at any time up to 150 days after the first debit. By enrolling in Tip Yourself, you authorize us to electronically debit and credit your Bank Account and Tip Jar. You are solely responsible for determining whether the funds debited from your Bank Account and the funds maintained in your Tip Yourself Account are acceptable to you.

Our authorization to initiate debit and credit entries to your Bank Account, Earnin Express Account and to your Tip Yourself 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 support@earnin.com or using live chat with the Earnin team via the mobile app at least three business days before the day the transaction is scheduled and stop using the Site 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 Earnin. Earnin is not responsible for any third-party fees or costs that you may incur based on the timing of authorization revocation.

If we are unable to access funds from your Bank Account or Earnin Express Account to complete a payment that you authorized Earnin to take, you may be prevented from using the Site and the Services until you repay any outstanding amount. However, we will never engage in any debt collection activities if the outstanding amount is not repaid, place the outstanding amount as a debt with, or sell it to, a third party, or report to a consumer reporting agency concerning the outstanding amount.

YOUR RESPONSIBILITY FOR THIRD PARTY BANK FEES

IMPORTANT, PLEASE READ: Unless Earnin withdraws funds from your Bank Account on a day before your next regularly scheduled payday or scheduled debit date as designated in the Services, you acknowledge and agree that you, and not Earnin, shall be responsible for any fees charged by your bank associated with overdrafts or insufficient fund events that occur when Earnin debits your Bank account for any outstanding amounts due to Cash Outs, Max Boost or Balance Shield Cash Out. This means that you, and not Earnin, are responsible for any overdraft fees, over-the-limit fees, or insufficient fund charges (including finance charges, late fees, or similar charges), or any other third-party fees that result from your failure to maintain a balance or available credit in your Bank Account that is sufficient to fund all payments you authorize, including any outstanding amounts due to Earnin that you have authorized.

Your bank, and not Earnin, controls the sequence in which it processes credits and debits (additions and subtractions) to your Bank Account. Thus, when Earnin seeks to debit your Bank Account for the authorized amounts owed to Earnin, the manner in which your bank processes credits and debits associated with various transactions may result in overdrafts and/or generate insufficient funds fees or other bank fees even where you believe that you have sufficient funds in your Bank Account. You, and not Earnin, are responsible for reviewing the terms of your Bank Account to understand your Bank’s overdraft policy and the manner in which your bank posts debits and credits.

DISPUTE RESOLUTION BY BINDING ARBITRATION

YOU HAVE READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY AND UNDERSTAND THAT IT LIMITS YOUR RIGHTS IN THE EVENT OF A DISPUTE BETWEEN YOU AND EARNIN. YOU UNDERSTAND THAT YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO REJECT THIS PROVISION AS PROVIDED IN THE SECTION ENTITLED "OPT OUT OF ARBITRATION" BELOW.

GOVERNING LAW These Terms of Service and any action related thereto will be governed by the laws of the State of California without regard to its conflict of laws provisions and the Federal Arbitration Act.

AGREEMENT TO ARBITRATE You and Earnin agree that the sole and exclusive forum and remedy for resolution of a Dispute shall be final and binding arbitration pursuant to this section entitled “Dispute Resolution by Binding Arbitration” unless you opt out as provided below. “Dispute” shall include any dispute, claim or controversy arising out of or relating to these Terms of Service and/or the activities or relationships that involve, lead to, or result from these Terms of Service, including our marketing activities, and (except to the extent provided otherwise in the paragraph entitled “NO CLASS ACTIONS”) the validity or enforceability of this “Dispute Resolution by Binding Arbitration” section, any part thereof, or the entire Terms of Service. Disputes will be settled by binding arbitration, except that each party retains the right: (i) to bring an individual action in small claims court (a “Small Claims Action”); (ii) to seek injunctive or other equitable relief in a court of competent jurisdiction to prevent the actual or threatened infringement, misappropriation or violation of a party’s copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets, patents or other intellectual property rights (the action described in the foregoing clause (ii), an “IP Protection Action”); and (iii) to bring an action seeking only injunctive relief.

Opt out of Arbitration. You may opt out of the binding arbitration described in this section by sending Earnin written notice of your desire to do so by email at legal-notices@earnin.com or regular mail at ActiveHours Inc. dba Earnin, Legal Department 200 Portage Ave, Palo Alto, California USA 94301 within thirty (30) days following the date you first agree to these Terms of Service (such notice, an “Arbitration Opt-out Notice”). If you don’t provide Earnin with an Arbitration Opt-out Notice within the thirty (30) day period, you will be deemed to have knowingly and intentionally waived your right to litigate any Dispute except with regard to a Small Claims Action, IP Protection Action, or to bring an action seeking only injunctive relief, as expressly set forth above.

JUDICIAL FORUM FOR DISPUTES In the event that (i) you or we bring an IP Protection Action; (ii) you timely provide Earnin with an Arbitration Opt-out Notice; or (iii) this “Dispute Resolution by Binding Arbitration” section is found not to apply, the exclusive jurisdiction and venue of any Dispute will be the state and federal courts located in the Northern District of California and each of the parties hereto waives any objection to jurisdiction and venue in such courts. You and we both further agree to waive our right to a jury trial.

WAIVER OF RIGHT TO LITIGATE Unless you timely provide Earnin with an Arbitration Opt-out Notice, YOU ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT YOU AND EARNIN ARE EACH WAIVING THE RIGHT TO LITIGATE CLAIMS THROUGH A COURT BEFORE A JUDGE OR JURY. THE PARTIES HEREBY KNOWINGLY AND VOLUNTARILY WAIVE THEIR RIGHTS TO LITIGATE SUCH CLAIMS IN A COURT BEFORE A JUDGE OR JURY UPON ELECTION OF ARBITRATION BY ANY PARTY.

NO CLASS ACTIONS NO ARBITRATION SHALL PROCEED ON A CLASS, REPRESENTATIVE, OR COLLECTIVE BASIS EVEN IF THE DISPUTE OR DISPUTES THAT ARE THE SUBJECT OF THE ARBITRATION HAD PREVIOUSLY BEEN ASSERTED (OR COULD HAVE BEEN ASSERTED) IN A COURT AS CLASS REPRESENTATIVE, OR COLLECTIVE ACTIONS IN A COURT. Unless consented to in writing by all parties to the arbitration, no party to the arbitration may join, consolidate, or otherwise bring claims for or on behalf of two or more individuals or unrelated corporate entities in the same arbitration unless those persons are parties to a single transaction. Unless consented to in writing by all parties to the arbitration, an award in arbitration shall determine the rights and obligations of such parties only, and only with respect to the claims in arbitration, and shall not (a) determine the rights, obligations, or interests of anyone other than all parties to the arbitration, or resolve any Dispute of anyone other than any such party; nor (b) make an award for the benefit of, or against, anyone other than any such party. No administrator or arbitrator shall have the power or authority to waive, modify, or fail to enforce this specific paragraph, and any attempt to do so, whether by rule, policy, arbitration decision or otherwise, shall be invalid and unenforceable. If this specific paragraph is held unenforceable in its entirety, then the entirety of this “Dispute Resolution by Binding Arbitration” section will be deemed void. Except as provided in the preceding sentence, this “Dispute Resolution by Binding Arbitration” section will survive any termination of these Terms of Service.

ARBITRATION RULES The arbitration will be administered by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) in accordance with the Commercial Arbitration Rules and the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes (the “AAA Rules”) then in effect, except as modified by this “Dispute Resolution by Binding Arbitration” section. In the case of a conflict between the rules and policies of the administrator and this “Dispute Resolution by Binding Arbitration” section, this “Dispute Resolution by Binding Arbitration” section shall control, subject to countervailing law, unless all parties to the arbitration consent to have the rules and policies of the administrator apply. (The AAA Rules are available at www.adr.org/arb_med) The Federal Arbitration Act will govern the interpretation and enforcement of this “Dispute Resolution by Binding Arbitration” section.

Arbitration Process. A party who desires to initiate arbitration must provide the other party with a written Demand for Arbitration as specified in the AAA Rules. (The AAA provides a general Demand for Arbitration and a separate Affidavit For Waiver of Fees for qualifying California residents.) The arbitrator will be either a retired judge or an attorney licensed to practice law and will be selected by the parties from the AAA’s roster of arbitrators. If the parties are unable to agree upon an arbitrator within seven (7) days of delivery of the Demand for Arbitration, then the AAA will appoint the arbitrator in accordance with the AAA Rules.

Arbitration Location and Procedure. Unless you and Earnin otherwise agree, the arbitration will be conducted in the county where you reside. If your claim does not exceed $10,000, then the arbitration will be conducted solely on the basis of the documents that you and Earnin submit to the arbitrator, unless you request a hearing or the arbitrator determines that a hearing is necessary. If your claim exceeds $10,000, your right to a hearing will be determined by the AAA Rules. Subject to the AAA Rules, the arbitrator will have the discretion to direct a reasonable exchange of information by the parties, consistent with the expedited nature of the arbitration.

Arbitrator’s Decision. The arbitrator will render an award within the time frame specified in the AAA Rules. The arbitrator’s decision will include the essential findings and conclusions upon which the arbitrator based the award. Judgment on the arbitration award may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof. The arbitrator’s award of damages must be consistent with the terms of the “Limitation of Liability” section above as to the types and amounts of damages for which a party may be held liable. The arbitrator may award declaratory or injunctive relief only in favor of the claimant and only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by the claimant’s individual claim.

Fees. If we elect arbitration, we shall pay all the administrator’s filing costs and administrative fees (other than hearing fees). If you elect arbitration, filing costs and administrative fees (other than hearing fees) shall be paid in accordance with the AAA Rules, or in accordance with countervailing law if contrary to the AAA Rules. However, if the value of the relief sought is $10,000 or less, at your request, we will pay all filing, administration, and arbitrator fees associated with the arbitration, unless the arbitrator finds that either the substance of your claim or the relief sought in your Demand for Arbitration was frivolous or was brought for an improper purpose (as measured by the standards set forth in Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 11(b)). In such circumstances, fees will be determined in accordance with the AAA Rules. Each party shall bear the expense of its own attorneys' fees, except as otherwise provided by law. If a statute gives you the right to recover any of these fees, these statutory rights shall apply in the arbitration notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein.

Changes to “Dispute Resolution by Binding Arbitration” Section. Notwithstanding the provisions of the “Acceptance of Terms” section above, if Earnin changes this “Dispute Resolution by Binding Arbitration” section after the date you first accepted these Terms of Service (or accepted any subsequent changes to these Terms of Service), you may reject any such change by sending us written notice (including by email to legal-notices@earnin.com) within 30 days of the date such change became effective, as indicated in the “Last Updated” date above or in the date of Earnin’s communication to you notifying you of such change. By rejecting any change, you are agreeing that you will arbitrate any Dispute between you and Earnin in accordance with the provisions of this “Dispute Resolution by Binding Arbitration” section as of the date you first accepted these Terms of Service (or accepted any subsequent changes to these Terms of Service). If you do not reject any changes made by Earnin as outlined above, Earnin will assume you are accepting the changes.

Existing Litigation. Nothing in this “Dispute Resolution by Binding Arbitration” Section shall prohibit any party who is a proposed settlement class member in the proposed settlement agreement in Perks v. Activehours, Inc. d/b/a Earnin, Case No. 5:19-cv-05543-BLF (N.D. Cal.) from continuing to participate in that settlement agreement.

MISCELLANEOUS

If any portion of these Terms of Service is deemed unlawful, void or unenforceable by any arbitrator or court of competent jurisdiction, these Terms of Service as a whole will not be deemed unlawful, void or unenforceable, but only that portion of these Terms of Service that is unlawful, void or unenforceable will be stricken from these Terms of Service. You agree that if Earnin does not exercise or enforce any legal right or remedy which is contained in these Terms of Service (or which we have the benefit of under any applicable law), this will not be taken to be a formal waiver of our rights and that those rights or remedies will still be available to Earnin.

All covenants, agreements, representations and warranties made in these Terms of Service will survive your acceptance of these Terms of Service and the termination of these Terms of Service.

This Terms of Service, the Privacy Policy, Consent to Receive Electronic Disclosures, Acceptable Use Policy, Digital Millennium Content Act and User Generated Content- Terms of Use represents the entire understanding and agreement between you and Earnin regarding the subject matter of the same, and supersedes all other previous agreements.

TERMINATING YOUR EARNIN ACCOUNT

You may close your account and terminate your relationship with us without termination fees. However, if we have been unable to recoup payment of a Cash Out from Earnin, you will be unable to use the Services and Site even if you reactivate your account and sign up again until we are able to recoup any unreimbursed Cash Outs.

EARNIN SERVICES

Once we have verified the Required Identifying Information that you provide to us, you will be able to begin using Earnin’s Services and Site. If we have not verified the Required Identifying Information that you have provided to us, you have not provided all the Required Identifying Information, or you have not completed the account registration process, you may be unable to use Earnin’s Services and Site.

NO REQUIRED FEES OR CHARGES

You are not required to pay any fees or charges to use any of the Earnin Services. There are no required fees to obtain a Cash Out, Max Boost, set alerts for a Balance Shield or set a manual Balance Shield Cash Out, use Health Aid, enroll in Earnin Express, enroll in Earnin Cash Back Rewards and/or enroll Tip Yourself. You may make voluntary tips to Earnin in appreciation of the Site and/or 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. Please note that while tips are non-refundable, if you need help in changing your tip amount, please live chat the Earnin team via the mobile app. These voluntary tips help fund us and keep us going, but we want you to be in control of if, when, and how much to tip. You will never be denied access to the Services on the basis of not tipping or the amount of any tip you choose to leave. For more information about voluntary tips please reference the specific service below.

We believe that the world is a better place when we all help each other out. You can support our Services by tipping what you think is fair and/or by “paying it forward” to others within the Earnin community by increasing your tip amount. With all of Earnin’s Services and the Site, you choose whether to pay, what to pay, and how often you pay.

Cash Out. Allows you to access some or all of various forms of income (such as your earned wages, government benefit checks, etc.) by requesting a “Cash Out” prior to when that income is deposited into your Bank Account, by requesting a “Cash Out”. You will have a set “Daily Max”, which is the maximum you are allowed to Cash Out in one day, as well as a “Pay Period Max”, which is the maximum amount you can Cash Out before the next scheduled deposit. All Earnin community members start with a $100 Pay Period Max, with a potential for it to increase up to $500. We have the right to adjust your maxes at any time. Your maxes are determined based on an evaluation of a number of factors we have identified that we believe are related to evaluating your financial health. These factors may be changed at any time, at our sole discretion. We may also limit the number Cash Outs that you can request at any given time or over a period of time, or decline to extend a Cash Out to you if we reasonably believe such refusal is necessary or advisable for legal or security reasons or to protect the Services. Generally you will receive your Cash Out within the next 2-3 Banking Days after you have submitted your request.

Max Boost. As part of Earnin’s Cash Out Services, you may be offered the opportunity to participate in Max Boost. Max Boost allows you to request a Max boost from another Earnin member in the program (the “Grantor”) by providing you a unique link to send to the Grantor; and if the Grantor approves the request you will get a temporary $50 pay period Max increase which you can then Cash Out. This temporary Max Boost will expire at the end of the pay period. Grantors are not required to approve a Max Boost request, and there is no financial or legal obligation on the Grantor. We may cancel an approved Max Boost if you are no longer at your pay period Max, or if we reasonably believe such refusal is necessary or advisable for legal or security reasons, or to protect the Services. You may also have the opportunity to receive a temporary one-time Max Boost if you send the unique link to a non-Earnin member and they decide to sign-up for an Earnin account.

There are no fees or costs associated with Cash Out or Max Boost. As outlined above, Earnin accepts voluntary tips in appreciation for Services rendered. We appreciate the tip if you can and however much you feel is fair- anywhere from $0-$14 for Cash Out and Max Boost. We like putting you in control.

Lightning Speed. If you’d like to receive your Cash Out from Earnin into your Bank Account more quickly, you might consider using Lightning Speed. Depending on your bank, by providing us your debit card information or banking routing number and Bank Account information, you can Cash Out with Lightning Speed, a service that enables funds associated with Cash Outs to be expedited. If you only provide your Bank Account information to us, you will generally receive your Cash Out within the next 2-3 Banking Days after you request a Cash Out in your Bank Account. If you provide us with your debit card information, you should be able to receive your Cash Out within the same Banking Day. Fees may apply to Lightning Speed in some instances.

Balance Shield. Allows you to set an alert to have Earnin send you a notification when your Bank Account falls below an amount that you set ($0-$400) to help you monitor your Bank Account's balance. Balance Shield also incorporates Cash Out, by automatically setting a cash out of up to $100 when your Bank Account balance has fallen below $100. Note, that a Balance Shield Cash Out is subject to your available earned wages, your Daily Max and Pay Period Max requirements. You are responsible for monitoring your Daily Max and Pay Period Max to ensure that the Cash Out application of Balance Shield is available to you. We may limit the amount we send you for Balance Shield Cash Out at any given time or over a period of time. We may also decline to offer Balance Shield to you at any time, without prior notice, if we reasonably believe such refusal is necessary or advisable for legal or security reasons, or to protect the Services.

Balance Shield alerts can stay on indefinitely until you turn them off. There is no fee or charge to use Balance Shield alerts. Generally, Balance Shield Cash Out will need be turned on manually after each Balance Shield Cash Out, however, setting a voluntary tip ($1.50-$14.50) triggers Earnin to automatically keep Balance Shield Cash Out on even after a Balance Shield Cash Out. If you choose to enable Balance Shield Cash Out to activate automatically, Balance Shield Cash Out will stay on indefinitely until you turn it off. Earnin will send you an annual reminder that Balance Shield is turned on.

Earnin Express. This service is provided to you through a partnership between Earnin and Evolve Bank & Trust, an Arkansas chartered depository institution. Evolve Bank & Trust is a member of the FDIC. The deposit account (the “Earnin Express Account”) provided to you in connection with the Earnin services is provided to you by Evolve Bank & Trust and is subject to a deposit account agreement between you and Evolve Bank & Trust. You may access the terms of such agreement at any time here.

By signing up for Earnin Express, you will authorize us to obtain Required Identifying Information, directly or indirectly through our third-party service providers, information about you and your Bank Account from the financial institution holding your Bank Account and other third-party websites and databases that may be necessary to provide the services. We make no effort to review such information for any purpose, including, but not limited to, accuracy, legality, or non-infringement. You agree that our third-party service providers and the operators and owners of the third-party websites will be entitled to rely on the foregoing authorization granted by you. Once Earnin is able to verify your identity, you will be automatically enrolled in Earnin Express and, subject to Evolve Bank & Trust’s approval, an Earnin Express Account will be set up on your behalf.

Your Earnin Express Pay Period Max will be the lesser of $1,000, or up to 80% of the amount of funds you direct from your paycheck to your Earnin Express Account. If you direct funds outside of your paycheck to your Earnin Express Account, those funds will not count towards your Pay Period Max and will be credited to your Bank Account. You may obtain information about the balance of funds in your Earnin Express Account at any time in the app. Because Earnin Express requires Lightning Speed, funds from your Earnin Express Account that are to be credited to your Bank Account, will arrive within the same Banking Day. Please note that if Lightning Speed is unavailable, Earnin may move your funds via ACH.

You authorize all repayments of Cash Outs to occur directly from your Earnin Express Account on the day of your next regularly scheduled paycheck. Failed or rejected fund transfers to repay a Cash Out may be reinitiated at any time up to 150 days from either your Earnin Express Account or your Bank Account.

We may also credit funds from your Earnin Express Account to your Bank Account without notice to you upon the closure of your Earnin Express Account. We will review your Earnin Express Account and direct deposit activity at various times. We may use proprietary fraud and risk modeling when completing this review and assessing the risk associated with your Earnin Express Account. This review checks for, among other things, suspicious or illegal activity, and whether your Earnin Express Account activity complies with these Terms of Service. We may instruct Evolve Bank & Trust to transfer funds from your Earnin Express Account to your Bank Account without notice to you upon the closure of your Earnin Express Account or if we, in our sole discretion, suspect Earnin Express is being used for illicit purposes or otherwise in violation of these Terms of Service.

There are no fees or costs associated with Earnin Express. As outlined above, Earnin accepts voluntary tips in appreciation for Services rendered. We appreciate the tip if you can and however much you feel is fair- anywhere from $0-$14. We like putting you in control.

Both of us may each terminate this Earnin Express relationship unilaterally at any time upon notice. To terminate your participation in Earnin Express, please contact us by emailing support@earnin.com, using live chat with the Earnin team via the mobile app, or closing the Earnin Express Account pursuant to the terms governing the Earnin Express Account. Prior to termination, please ensure that you have switched your direct deposit from your employer away from your Earnin Express Account. Upon notice of termination, we or Evolve Bank & Trust will return any remaining balance in your Earnin Express Account to your Bank Account through an ACH transfer and you will no longer be able to use your Earnin Express Account or Earnin Express Service. For more information click here.

NO OBLIGATION TO REPAY

We will have no legal or contractual claim or remedy against you based on your failure to repay any Cash Out, Max Boost, Balance Shield Cash Out, or Cash Out via Earnin Express you take, however, if we are unable to access funds from your bank account to complete a payment that you authorized Earnin to take, you will be prevented from using the Services until you pay any outstanding authorized payment to Earnin. Earnin will not engage in any debt collection activities if the amount of the Cash Out is not repaid on the scheduled date, place the amount of the Cash Out as a debt with, or sell it to, a third party, or report to a consumer reporting agency concerning the amount of the payout.

Health Aid. If you have created an Earnin account, Health Aid allows you to submit your eligible medical bills to Earnin’s Health Aid team to learn about lower payment options for you with your medical providers. Unfortunately, not all medical bills are eligible for Health Aid. Once you upload a medical bill, we will review and notify you if the medical bill is ineligible. If your medical bill is eligible, Earnin’s Health Aid team will conduct a Medical Bill Review, which may require Earnin to speak to your medical provider or its representatives on your behalf. We will send you an update within 48 business hours with either: a final report of available options (if any) to lower your medical bill payments that Earnin obtained from your medical provider or its representatives, or a request for further action from you, so that Earnin can better gauge what options may be available. Health Aid is for informational purposes only and does not guarantee any results. We do 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 this service.

You agree that by submitting documents, including documents containing medical and insurance information, for Medical Bill Review, you are disclosing the documents to us and expressly authorize us to review the contents of each document. By using Medical Bill Review, you further authorize us 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 us 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.

There are no fees or costs associated with Health Aid. Earnin accepts voluntary tips in appreciation for Services rendered. You can choose to leave a tip in appreciation for using Health Aid, anywhere from $0-1$100, but are under no obligation to do so. We like putting you in control.

Cash Back Rewards. If you have created an Earnin account, you can enroll your debit or credit card in Cash Back Rewards and you will receive cash back in the form of credit to that same card within 10 days of making a Qualified Purchase at participating merchants. Specifically, Cash Back Rewards will be available for redemption 3-5 days after making a Qualified Purchase. Once you choose to redeem, the reward will be reflected in your associated bank account 3-5 days after that. A “Qualified Purchase” is a purchase from a participating merchant using your debit or card in accordance with the terms of the Offer and these Terms of Service. An "Offer" is the cash back 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. There is a $250 cashback limit per transaction.

You may opt-out of Cash Back Rewards at any time by unlink your cards. Within the app, go to Cash Back Rewards, click on “unenroll” and confirm you want to unenroll the card. You must repeat this process for every card you wish to delete.

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 debit or credit card may only be enrolled in one program operated by Empyr, Inc. If you have already enrolled the debit or credit card with a separate program operated by Empyr, Inc., you will be unable to register that card in both Cash Back Rewards and the other Empyr, Inc. operated program. You may enroll another debit or credit card in Cash Back Rewards or deactivate your card in the other Empyr, Inc. operated program.

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.

Cash Back Rewards credits cannot be processed if your debit or credit card number expires or changes while the credit is pending and not settled, or your debit or credit card account is not open or in good standing. You may not receive a credit if it is not posted by your card issuer. Earnin, 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 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 Earnin.

Earnin may choose to share a portion of its Empyr publisher fee with 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.

Tip Yourself.
This service is provided to you through a custodial account deposit agreement between you and Evolve Bank & Trust, an Arkansas chartered depository institution. You may access the terms of such agreement at any time here.

By enrolling in Tip Yourself, you may transfer a chosen dollar amount from your Bank Account to an account that you have with Evolve Bank & Trust, your Tip Yourself Account. The Tip Yourself Service offered by Earnin allows you to better track and meet your savings goals by allowing you to authorize Evolve Bank & Trust to make one-time and/or recurring transfers from your Bank Account to your Tip Yourself Account. Within the Tip Yourself Service you can track your savings towards your specific savings goals by creating different “tip jars". You can create up to 5 tip jars using the Tip Yourself Service to help you better track your personalized savings goals. You may obtain information about the balance of funds in your Tip Yourself Account at any time in the app.

Tip Yourself also has an Automated Savings feature, that allows you to set up scheduled transfers between your Bank Account and your Tip Yourself Account. If you decide to turn on Automated Savings, you can choose a frequency that works for you, and then set up different scheduled transfers for your specific saving goals to your Tip Yourself Account, which will be reflected in your tip jars through the Earnin Tip Yourself Service. You will receive an email notification the evening prior to a scheduled transfer as a reminder. You are responsible for ensuring that your Bank Account has sufficient available funds to cover an Automated Savings transfer as the Tip Yourself Service will not check your Bank Account balance before any scheduled transfers. Earnin or Evolve Bank & Trust is not responsible for overdrafts, insufficient funds fees, or any other third-party fees resulting from insufficient funds related to a transfer from your Bank Account to your Tip Yourself Account. You may pause, skip or change at any time prior to the day of the scheduled transfer your tip yourself amount and authorization.

Only funds from your Bank Account may be transferred to your Tip Yourself Account. You may transfer funds to your Tip Yourself Account via electronic debits from your Bank Account. If you enable “Lightning Speed”, you may fund your Tip Yourself Account within the same Banking Day with your debit card. The funds in your Tip Yourself Account are held at Evolve Bank & Trust for your benefit. You may not use the funds in your Tip Yourself Account to make purchases, transfer funds to third parties, or for any other purpose other than to withdraw such funds to your linked Bank Account. Funds held in your Tip Yourself Account will remain in your Tip Yourself Account until you instruct us to transfer any or all of your funds from your Tip Yourself Account to your Bank Account by requesting such transfer in the app. We, or Evolve Bank & Trust will generally transfer the requested funds from your Tip Yourself Account to your Bank Account within two Banking Days of when we receive your request. It is important to know the amount of available funds in your Tip Yourself Account before instructing us to transfer funds from your Tip Yourself Account to your Bank Account. If you do not have sufficient available funds in your Tip Yourself Account to cover the amount of the requested transfer, your request for the transfer will be declined.

We may instruct Evolve Bank & Trust to transfer funds from your Tip Yourself Account to your Bank Account without notice to you upon the closure of your Tip Yourself Account or if we, in our sole discretion, suspect Tip Yourself is being used for illicit purposes or otherwise in violation of these Terms of Service.

For our compliance purposes and in order to provide 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 Tip Yourself and from time to time thereafter, we may require you to provide and/or confirm the information and documentation that will allow us to identify you, including Required Identifying Information.

We will review your Tip Yourself Account and transaction activity at various times, including when you initiate a transfer of funds into or out of your Tip Jar(s). We may use proprietary fraud and risk modeling when completing this review and assessing the risk associated with your Tip Yourself Account. This review checks for, among other things, suspicious or illegal activity, and whether your Tip Yourself Account activity complies with these Terms of Service. Review may result in: delayed, blocked or canceled fund transfers;

By using Tip Yourself and providing user information to us, you authorize us to obtain, directly or indirectly through our third-party service providers, information about you and your bank account from the financial institution holding your bank account and other third-party websites and databases that may be necessary to provide the services. We make no effort to review such information for any purpose, including, but not limited to, accuracy, legality, or non-infringement. You agree that our third-party service providers and the operators and owners of the third-party websites will be entitled to rely on the foregoing authorization granted by you.

There are no fees or costs associated with Tip Yourself Service offered by Earnin.

When you request a Cash Out, Max Boost, Balance Shield Cash Out, or Earnin Express Cash Out, you warrant that the earned wages being cashed 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.

You represent and warrant that you have the right to authorize us and/or Evolve Bank & Trust to credit and debit your Bank Account for credits you request and payments you authorize under these Terms of Service, and you agree to indemnify and hold us and/or Evolve Bank and Trust harmless from any claims by any other owner of the account.

DEBITS AND CREDITS

Our failure to debit your Bank Account or Earnin Express Account for repayment within a set amount of time does not constitute a waiver of our right to charge your account for such funds. We will initiate debits to your Bank Account and Earnin Express Account or debit card as permitted by applicable laws and NACHA rules. Failed or rejected debits may be reinitiated at any time up to 150 days after the first debit.

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 Earnin. Earnin is not responsible for any third-party fees or costs that you may incur based on the timing of authorization revocation.

If we are unable to access funds from your Bank Account or Earnin Express Account to complete a payment that you authorized Earnin to take, you may be prevented from using the Site and the Services until you repay any outstanding amount. However, we will never engage in any debt collection activities if the outstanding amount is not repaid, place the outstanding amount as a debt with, or sell it to, a third party, or report to a consumer reporting agency concerning the outstanding amount.

You are responsible for funding all payments you initiate. We are not responsible for any overdraft fees, over-the-limit fees, or insufficient fund charges (including finance charges, late fees, or similar charges), or any other third-party fees that result from your failure to maintain a balance or available credit in your Bank Account that is sufficient to fund all payments you initiate.

Personally Identifiable Information does not include information that has been aggregated, de-identified, or anonymized so it does not identify you.

If Earnin collects Personally Identifiable Information on behalf of Evolve Bank & Trust in connection with Tip Yourself and Earnin Express, it does so pursuant to Evolve Bank and Trust’s Privacy Policy, and such Personally Identifiable Information is not subject to this Privacy Policy.
