TORIIA TERMS OF SERVICE
Last Updated: April 1, 2018
The Company may amend these Terms at any time by posting a revised version on www.toriia.com and on the TORIIA mobile application.
1. The Toriia Services:
The Company provides Users with certain payment functionality through its Application (the “App”) that gives you the ability to send and receive electronic payments to other App users. These services are enabled by Dwolla’s Access API Service. Dwolla is the provider of User Accounts. Funds held in a User Account are held by Dwolla’s Financial Institution Partners as set out in the Dwolla Terms of Service. Funds transfers are performed by Dwolla’s Financial Institution Partners based on instructions issued through the App. You may fund transactions through the App by (a) requesting a transfer from your User Account balance held by Dwolla’s Financial Institution Partners, or (b) requesting a direct transfer from your linked bank or credit union account (“linked Bank Account”).
In certain instances, the Company may require you to provide additional data to validate or complete the opening of a User Account and you agree to provide such data.
Users must be 18 years or older and residents of the United States of America. You agree that you will not open or attempt to open a User Account if you do not meet these criteria. Company will terminate the Account of any User that does not meet the eligibility criteria. Company may ask that you provide certain information to confirm your identity, and you agree to provide such information.
3. Password security:
You are responsible for keeping your Account login information and password secure. If you share your Account credentials with another person, you are responsible for all activity that person conducts using your Account, regardless of whether or not you authorized the activity. Toriia will never ask you for your Account credentials.
4. Customer Bank Account verification:
To enable the Company’s payment functionality provided by Dwolla, Users must link a bank or credit union account at a state or federally chartered institution (“Bank Account”) to their User Account.
Your ownership of the Bank Account must be verified before access to the payment functionality of the App is enabled. This may be accomplished by Company through one or more of the following methods:
• Micro deposit verification – provided by Dwolla
• Instant account verification – provided by Plaid
• Other commercial reasonable account verification methods
In certain instances, the Company may require you to provide additional data to verify ownership of a linked Bank Account and you agree to provide such data. Users are currently only able to link one Bank Account.
5. Transfer, Deposit, and Withdrawal Limits:
Users will have a transfer limit of $1,000.00 per transfer. Company may, at its discretion, impose additional limits on the transactions you conduct through the Services. These limits may change from time to time in Company’s sole discretion.
6. Funding Sources:
Your Account balance consists of the funds you have in your User Account balance that are available for new transactions and are not subject to pending transactions.
When you make a payment through the App, we first see if your Account balance can cover the transaction. You may also be able to fund payments with a bank account or credit union account.
Unless otherwise specified by you, we use your Account balance first if the balance is sufficient to cover your payment. If there is not enough money available in your Account balance to cover the transaction, we use your designated primary funding source to make the payment in its entirety. This funding source may differ depending on the type of payment you are making. If there is not enough money available in your designated primary funding source to make the payment, we will not complete the transaction.
To manage risk, we may limit the funding sources available for your use to fund your Account or any particular transaction.
7. Bank Fees:
You are solely responsible for complying with any terms set by your bank or credit union with respect to your bank or credit union account, including any fee terms, such as non-sufficient fund or overdraft fee terms. If you are entitled to a Reversal (as defined below), refund, or other adjustment associated with a payment you made using the Services, you also authorize Toriia, Dwolla, and our Financial Institution Partners to credit your linked Bank Account to complete that transaction.
8. Automated Clearing House Clearing Times.
If you link a bank or credit union account to your Account, you may add funds to your Account, withdraw money from your Account, or send a payment using your linked Bank Account. If you do so, you acknowledge that normal Automated Clearing House clearing times will apply. This means that the funds should generally be available to you or your recipient within 4 business days.
9. Negative Balances
If your User Account or linked Bank Account balance is negative, you will not be permitted to initiate transactions through the App.
Toriia does not currently charge a fee for transactions to send money funded by your Toriia balance or linked bank or credit union account. Toriia may require or impose a fee for fund transfers, use of the service, or any other fee at a later time in Company’s sole discretion. Such fees may change from time to time in Company’s sole discretion. You may be subject to third party fees, such as but not limited to insufficient fund fees, reversal fees, or ACH insufficient fund fees that a bank may charge if your payment is rejected. Toriia is not responsible for third party fees.
11. Withdrawal of Consent:
You may unlink your bank account funding source at any time by logging into account, navigating to Account Settings, and selecting Manage Wallet and Unlink Bank Account. A positive User Account balance or at least one funding source must be provided to utilize the App’s payment functionality.
To withdraw all other consents provided by this agreement, you may terminate your account pursuant to the procedures below.
12. Account Termination:
Company reserves the right to suspend or terminate a User Account at any time, for any reason. Reasons for termination may include, but are not limited to, your violation of these Terms or any other applicable terms or policies of the Company, Account inactivity, or Company’s assessment that you pose an unacceptable risk based on Company’s confidential risk and security criteria. Company also reserves the right to modify or terminate the Services at any time, for any reason.
In addition, Dwolla, in accordance with its own risk policies, will determine, in its reasonable discretion, whether a User Account may be opened and continue to be used. Dwolla reserves the right to suspend or terminate a User Account at any time if: (a) Dwolla determines, in its reasonable discretion, that the User Account’s activities violate the Dwolla Terms, any other applicable Dwolla agreement or policy, or any Applicable Laws; (b) Dwolla determines, in its reasonable discretion, that the risk associated with the User Account is too high; or (c) for any other reason, in Dwolla’s reasonable discretion.
You may be required to withdraw any Balance before closing your User Account.
13. Legal Compliance:
By using the Services, you represent and warrant that you (i) will use the App only in compliance with applicable federal, state and local laws and regulations, (ii) are not located in a country that is subject to a U.S. Government embargo, or that has been designated by the U.S. Government as a "terrorist supporting" country; and (ii) are not listed on any U.S. Government list of prohibited or restricted parties.

Contact Toriia immediately at email@example.com if you think that: (a) your Account has been accessed without your authorization, (b) a transaction that you did not authorize has occurred, (c) a transaction has been processed incorrectly to or from your Account, or (d) your Account statement contains an error regarding your transaction history (each, an “Error”). If you give someone access to your Account and that person conducts transactions without your authorization, these transactions are not considered Errors, unless you are the victim of a phishing attack or similar exploit. We must hear from you within 60 days after the Account statement is provided on which the suspected Error first appeared.
When you notify us of the suspected Error, please provide:
• Your name and Account number,
• The nature of the suspected Error and why you believe it is an Error, and
• The dollar amount of the suspected Error.
We will determine whether an Error occurred within 10 business days after you notify us and will correct any Error promptly. If we need more time, we may take up to 45 days to investigate. If we decide to do this, we will credit your Account within 10 business days for the amount of the suspected Error. If we ask you to send your inquiry by email and we do not receive it within 10 business days, we may not credit your Account. For Errors involving new Accounts, we may take up to 90 days to investigate and may take up to 20 business days to credit your Account.
Toriia will tell you the results within 5 business days after completing our investigation. If we decide that there was no Error, we will provide you a written explanation. You may ask for copies of the documents that we used in our investigation.
16. Transaction Reversals:
Any payment that you receive may be reversed if: (a) the sender requests a reversal of the payment, (b) the sender’s bank or credit union requests a reversal of the payment, or (c) Company decides a dispute against you (each a “Reversal”). You are liable for the full amount of any payment that you receive that is subject to a Reversal and the Reversal Fee, if applied.
You authorize Company to recover any Reversal amounts due by debiting your available Balance. If you have an insufficient Balance, you authorize Company to take any of the following actions to recover the remaining amounts from you:
