Vendor authorizes IFW, via 3rd party payment services providers like PayPal and/or Stripe, to receive payments on its behalf from Customers in exchange for Services. Vendor agrees and acknowledges that: (a) once IFW, via 3rd party payment services provider like PayPal and/or Stripe, receives payment from a Customer in connection with Services, Vendor will treat the Customer as if Vendor has itself received the funds, regardless of whether Vendor actually receives the payment from IFW via 3rd party payment services provider like PayPal and/or Stripe, and (b) all Vendor Payments will be held by IFW via 3rd party payment services provider like PayPal and/or Stripe for a minimum period of [three (3) business days] following completion of the Services (the “Customer Satisfaction Period”).

All such payment obligations are non-cancelable and all amounts paid are non-refundable, except for amounts paid in technical error that are not actually due under this Agreement. In the event of any dispute asserted by a Customer with respect to Services, or if Vendor is the subject of an investigation or Claim for any suspected or alleged wrongful conduct or any violation of this Agreement, IFW may refund all or part of such Customer payment(s) held by IFW via 3rd party payment services provider like PayPal and/or Stripe, or retain all or part of such Customer payment(s) beyond the Customer Satisfaction Period pending satisfactory investigation and resolution of such dispute, investigation, or Claim, in each case, in IFW’s sole discretion. IFW will not be liable to the Vendor for any such amounts. All taxes now or hereafter imposed with respect to the transactions contemplated hereunder (including value-added taxes, sales, and use taxes, customs and excise taxes or duties and other similar taxes or duties, but excluding income taxes or other taxes imposed upon IFW and measured by the gross or net income of IFW) are the responsibility of Vendor, and if paid or required to be paid by IFW, the amount thereof shall be added to and become a part of the amounts payable by Vendor hereunder.
