Last Updated
July 27, 2022

These Rho Terms of Service (the “Agreement”) govern your access to and use of any website or mobile application (collectively, the “Platform”) and the Rho Services offered by or through Under Technologies, Inc., dba Rho Technologies (“Rho”, “we”, “our” or “us”).

Please read the Agreement carefully before accessing or using the Rho Services. By accessing or using our Platform or any of the Rho Services, you agree to be bound by this Agreement, including the Arbitration Provision and Class Action Waiver, even if you do not obtain any product or any other Rho Service from us. If you do not agree with the terms of this Agreement, please exit the Platform and do not access or use the Rho Services. By accepting this Agreement, you also acknowledge our Rho Privacy Policy as well as the Privacy Policies of various third parties that provide the Rho Services, including those of the Sponsor Banks (defined below). Capitalized terms in the Agreement are defined in the glossary at the end of the Agreement.

Rho is a financial technology company and not a bank. Rho provides you with access to products and services provided by third parties, including FDIC-insured banks that offer Rho-branded banking products and services. At this time, the Rho Services are available from Evolve Bank & Trust, an Arkansas-chartered, FDIC-insured bank (“Evolve”), and Webster Bank, N.A., an FDIC-insured national bank (“Webster” and, together with Evolve, our “Sponsor Banks”), with respect to deposit and certain credit products. Deposits are held by Evolve or Webster and are eligible for deposit insurance by the FDIC through Evolve or Webster up to the current limit of $250,000 per institution, per account type. The Rho Services are also integrated with other third-party service providers who may provide other products and services to you ( “Third-Party Service Providers”). 

By opening a deposit account with a Sponsor Bank through the Rho Services, you also agree to, as applicable: (i) Evolve’s Deposit Agreement (available at https://synapsefi.com/evolve-bank-deposit-agreement, SynapseFI’s Terms of Service (available at https://synapsefi.com/tos) and SynapseFI’s Privacy Policy (available at https://synapsefi.com/privacy) (all three, collectively, the “Evolve Bank Agreement”); or (ii) the Deposit Account Agreement with Webster Bank for the Rho Deposit Account Program (the “Webster Agreement”).

Specific products and services will be governed by the terms of specific addenda to this Agreement. All addenda attached hereto are hereby incorporated by reference and expressly made a part of this Agreement as fully as though set forth herein.

1. Information About Procedures For Opening A New Account

A Rho Account provides you access to the Rho Services. To help the government fight the funding of terrorism and money laundering activities, federal law requires financial institutions to obtain, verify, and record information that identifies each person who opens an account. What this means for you: when you open a new account with Rho or a Sponsor Bank, you will be asked by Rho in connection with the Rho Services and/or its role as a program manager on behalf of a Sponsor Bank, for your control party’s name, address, date of birth, and other information that will allow us to identify you and control parties, including copies of driver’s licenses or other identifying documentation. We may also seek to obtain, verify, and record the same information for each person authorized to act as an Admin User or User of your Rho Account or any Rho Service.

PLEASE READ CAREFULLY. BY OPTING TO ACCEPT THIS AGREEMENT OR BY USING THE RHO SERVICES YOU AGREE THAT YOU HAVE READ, UNDERSTOOD AND YOU AGREE TO BE BOUND BY THIS AGREEMENT, AND THE EVOLVE BANK AGREEMENT OR WEBSTER AGREEMENT. YOU ALSO ACKNOWLEDGE THE RHO PRIVACY POLICY AND PRIVACY POLICIES OF OUR SPONSOR BANKS AND THIRD-PARTY SERVICE PROVIDERS.

IF YOU ARE NOT ELIGIBLE, OR DO NOT AGREE TO THIS AGREEMENT OR THE EVOLVE BANK AGREEMENT OR WEBSTER AGREEMENT, OR ACKNOWLEDGE THE RHO PRIVACY POLICY OR THE PRIVACY POLICIES OF OUR SPONSOR BANKS AND THIRD-PARTY SERVICE PROVIDERS, THEN YOU DO NOT HAVE OUR PERMISSION TO USE THE RHO SERVICES. YOUR USE OF THE RHO SERVICES AND RHO’S PROVISION OF THE RHO SERVICES TO YOU CONSTITUTE AN AGREEMENT BY BOTH YOU AND RHO TO BE BOUND BY THIS AGREEMENT.

2. Arbitration Notice

EXCEPT FOR CERTAIN KINDS OF DISPUTES DESCRIBED IN THE “ARBITRATION PROVISION AND CLASS ACTION WAIVER” SECTION BELOW, YOU AGREE THAT DISPUTES ARISING UNDER THIS AGREEMENT WILL BE RESOLVED BY BINDING ARBITRATION, AND BY ACCEPTING THIS AGREEMENT, YOU AND RHO ARE EACH WAIVING THE RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY OR TO PARTICIPATE IN ANY CLASS ACTION OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. YOU AGREE TO GIVE UP YOUR RIGHT TO GO TO COURT TO ASSERT OR DEFEND YOUR RIGHTS UNDER THIS CONTRACT. YOUR RIGHTS WILL BE DETERMINED BY A SINGLE ARBITRATOR AND NOT A JUDGE OR JURY.

You agree that we can rely on any request or transaction initiated through such codes without the need for further confirmation. You assume full responsibility for the use of your Rho Account by any User. From time to time, you will be invited to enter certain preferences and specifications within the Rho Account that will apply to the Rho Services; you assume exclusive responsibility for such selections even if they contain errors by you, or result in losses to you.

8. Collection, Use, Storage And Disclosure Of Personal Information

YOU HEREBY AUTHORIZE RHO, DIRECTLY OR THROUGH OUR SPONSORS BANKS OR OTHER THIRD-PARTY SERVICE PROVIDERS, TO MAKE ANY INQUIRIES AND CONDUCT ANY INVESTIGATION TO VERIFY YOUR IDENTITY. 

The Rho Services require certain information concerning your Company and your control persons, including but not limited to names, addresses, phone numbers, email addresses, Bank Account information and other account information for accounts held by you with third parties. You represent that any information you provide to Rho shall be complete and accurate and you shall promptly correct any errors or update the information you provide to Rho.

You hereby consent to and grant to Rho the right to collect, store, use and disclose your Data for the purpose of providing the Rho Services and in connection with its role as a program manager on behalf of a Sponsor Bank that you use for banking services, or wish to use for banking services, as well as any other Third-Party Service Provider. You hereby authorize Rho to share your Data with our Sponsor Banks and other Third-Party Service Providers in furtherance of our program or other agreements with our Sponsor Banks and Third-Party Service Providers. To the extent that your Data includes data concerning third parties, you represent that you have obtained the necessary consents for Rho to collect, store, use and disclose such data hereunder from the relevant data subjects. Your Data collected, used, stored and disclosed by Rho is subject to the Rho Privacy Policy. You hereby consent for Rho to obtain from and share with the Sponsor Banks and each other Third-Party Service Provider whose services are made available through your Rho Account, information concerning you and transactions accessed and used through the Platform in order that such Data can be used by Rho to assist in providing the Rho Services to you. Where required by law, we will disclose your Data to law enforcement agencies.

Rho reserves the right to collect, store, use and disclose your Data as required by applicable law.

9. Account Information from Third-Party Sites

In order to use or access the Rho Services, you may be required to direct us to retrieve your information maintained online by third party financial institutions with which you have customer relationships, maintain accounts or engage in financial transactions (“Account Information”). We will then connect directly with your online financial service providers to access this Account Information. We may also work with one or more third-party financial service technology providers to access and retrieve your Account Information.

We cannot always foresee or anticipate technical or other difficulties, which may result in failure to obtain data or loss of data, personalization settings or other service interruptions. We cannot assume responsibility for the timeliness, accuracy, deletion, non-delivery or failure to store any user data, communications or personalization settings. For example, Account Information may be stale as of the time viewed, which reflects the fact that time may have passed between the time the information is downloaded from the third-party financial institution and the time such information is viewed by you. Such information may be more up to date when obtained directly from the relevant sites.

By submitting information, data, passwords, usernames, PINs, other login information, materials and other content through the Sites (“User Content”), you are licensing the User Content to us solely for the purpose of providing the Rho Services. We may use and store the User Content. By submitting User Content to us, you represent that you are entitled to submit it to us for use for this purpose, without any other limitations or obligation by us to pay any fees.

You authorize us to use Account Information that you provide us, including usernames and passwords, to log into the third-party site(s) that maintains your Account Information. You hereby authorize and permit us to use and store such information to accomplish the foregoing and to configure the services so that they are compatible with the third-party sites that maintain your Account Information. You grant Rho (or, in connection with the Prime Services (as defined in Addendum D), RBB Treasury LLC) limited power of attorney, and appoint Rho (or, in connection with the Prime Services (as defined in Addendum D), RBB Treasury LLC) as your attorney-in-fact and agent, to access third party sites and retrieve and use your information with the full power and authority to do and perform each thing necessary as you could do in person, but solely in connection with providing the Account Information to you as part of the Rho Services and/or Prime Services, as applicable.

YOU ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT WHEN WE ARE ACCESSING AND RETRIEVING ACCOUNT INFORMATION FROM THIRD-PARTY PLATFORMS, WE ARE ACTING AS YOUR AGENT, AND NOT AS THE AGENT OF OR ON BEHALF OF THE THIRD PARTY.

Notwithstanding anything in this Agreement, we shall have no authority to take or have possession of any assets in the accounts maintained by such third parties or to direct delivery of any securities or payment of any funds held in such account to itself or to direct any disposition of such securities or funds. You agree that third party account providers shall be entitled to rely on the foregoing authorization, agency and power of attorney granted by you. While our services may be sponsored or endorsed by the third parties with whom your Account Information is held from time to time, you should not assume that the Rho Services are sponsored or endorsed by any third parties with whom your Account Information is held.

10. Interstate and International Nature of Communications

You acknowledge that in contributing User Content or using the Rho Services to send electronic communications, you will be causing communications to be sent through our computer networks, portions of which are located in various states and localities in the United States and portions of which may be located abroad. As a result, and also as a result of Rho network architecture and business practices and the nature of electronic communications, even communications that seem to be intrastate in nature can result in the transmission of interstate communications regardless of where you are physically located at the time of transmission. Accordingly, by agreeing to the Agreement, you acknowledge that the contribution of User Content and use of the Rho Services results in interstate data transmissions.

Recognizing the global nature of the Internet, you agree to comply with all local rules regarding online conduct and acceptable content. Specifically, you agree to comply with all applicable laws regarding the transmission of technical data exported from the United States or any country in which you originate the transmission.

11. Device Security

You shall use commercially reasonable efforts to secure your Data in your possession or under your control. You assume exclusive responsibility for ensuring the security of your Device and the Data on it. You agree to use a password or other security device(s) to lock your Device. You shall immediately notify Rho of any actual or suspected breaches in the security of your devices or any Data, whether in your Devices or otherwise. Rho is not liable for the operation or failure of your Devices or those of any third party, including but not limited to processors, hosting services, internet service providers, Sponsor Banks and other Third-Party Service Providers. You will not operate your Device in a manner that does not meet the applicable security requirements of our Sponsor Banks and Third-Party Service Providers.

12. Prohibited Activities

It is forbidden for you to use the Rho Services to, directly or indirectly, knowingly or unknowingly assist in any Prohibited Activity (defined below) or any illegal activity.

1) General

You agree to use the Rho Services only for good faith Transactions and not for Transactions on behalf of third parties. You agree to review Transactions on the Platform and promptly notify Rho of any irregularities or actual or suspected unauthorized activity. You shall provide Rho and, where applicable, the Sponsor Bank, with all of your Data that is necessary for Rho to carry out a Transaction. Rho does not have the ability to undo Transactions. Depending on the availability of such services from the Sponsor Bank, Transactions may include, for example, the transfer of Data from you to the Sponsor Bank to initiate an outgoing electronic funds transfer payment or a wire transfer, either from your Bank Account or other account held by you with the Sponsor Bank pursuant to your applicable agreement with such Sponsor Bank.

You hereby grant Rho permission to not deliver Transaction Data to a Sponsor Bank where such Data may result, as determined by Rho or the Sponsor Bank, each in its sole discretion, in a payment transaction for which your Bank Account or other account held by you with the Sponsor Bank contains insufficient funds. Rho offers no guarantee as to the financial results of any Transaction, all of which are the sole and exclusive responsibility of the Sponsor Bank.

Rho makes no representation or warranty as to the accuracy or completeness of any Transaction or other Data, where the input is your responsibility. Rho is under no affirmative obligation to monitor the content of Data to, for example, detect fraud by you, our Sponsor Banks or other Third-Party Service Providers. While certain specific Transaction types are discussed below, there may be other forms of Transactions available from time to time.

2) Account Aggregation Disclosure

Your use of the automated bank account feeds (“Account Aggregation Services”) in connection with opening your Sponsor Bank Account is subject to the following terms.

Provide Accurate Information. You agree to provide true, accurate, current and complete information about yourself and your accounts maintained at other websites, including financial institutions. You agree to not misrepresent your identity or any account information. You represent that you have all the rights to provide such information and license the Content, as defined below. You agree to keep your account information up to date.

License. You are licensing to Rho and its Sponsor Banks and Third-Party Service Providers any information, data, passwords, materials or other content (collectively, “Content”) you provide through the Account Aggregation Services. You license the Content to Rho and its Sponsor Banks and Third-Party Service Providers to access, use and store the Content. Rho and its Sponsor Banks and Third-Party Service Providers may use, display, distribute and reproduce the information obtained via the Account Aggregation Services exclusively for the purposes of delivering the Rho Services and Sponsor Banks’ banking services to you. You may revoke this license at any time by emailing us at clientservice@rho.co.

Third-Party Accounts. By using the Account Aggregation Services, you authorize Rho and its Sponsor Banks and Third-Party Service Providers to access third-party sites designated by you, on your behalf, to retrieve information requested by you, and to register for accounts or request loans. For all purposes hereof, you grant Rho and its Sponsor Banks and Third-Party Service Providers a limited power of attorney, and you hereby appoint Rho and its Sponsor Banks and Third-Party Service Providers as your true and lawful attorney-in-fact and agent, with full power of substitution and resubstitution, for you and in your name, access third-party internet sites, servers or documents, retrieve information, and use your information exclusively for the purposes of delivering the Rho Services and the Sponsor Banks’ banking services to you. You understand that Rho and its Sponsor Banks and Third-Party Service Providers may access your third-party accounts any time and obtain access to the information in such third-party accounts at any time while you have a Rho Account.

3) Limitations

In order to reduce the risk of Rho Services being used for money laundering, the financing of terrorism or other Prohibited Activity or otherwise in breach hereof and to limit Rho and Third-Party Service Providers’ exposure to excessive security, financial or reputational risk, Rho reserves the right to impose limits on Transactions and other elements of the Rho Services at its sole discretion and where in compliance with applicable law, without prior notice. Our Sponsor Banks may separately reserve such rights to impose limits on your accounts held directly with any Sponsor Bank pursuant to the terms of your deposit account or other agreement with such Sponsor Bank.

4) Errors

In the event of an error in a Transaction, you shall immediately notify Rho of the error via email at clientservice@rho.co. Rho uses commercially reasonable efforts to investigate the error, but makes no representation as to its ability to correct the error. You shall provide Rho with any information necessary to investigate an error in a Transaction. Transactions will often result in payments from your Bank Account or in respect of other accounts with financial institutions; the availability of error correction or resolution could vary from one financial institution to another. Some payment transactions, such as wire transfers may be irreversible, so you agree to exercise extreme caution when initiating any Transaction.

14. Your Relationships

Rho is not party any of your Relationships, being the relationships that give rise to Transactions or your other use of the Rho Service.  You are solely responsible for any Transactions placed through the use of the Rho Service or other use of the Rho Service.  Rho shall not be liable for any errors caused by you or interruptions of any hosting company computer systems or communication lines.  Where your Relationship or a Transaction relates to the purchase or sale of Product, Rho has no liability with respect to Product or any third party supplier thereof.

15. Fees

The Rho Services are available to you subject to your payment of any fees. Fees are disclosed on the Platform, which disclosure is incorporated herein by reference. Rho may make promotional Fee offers that will not necessarily apply to you. Fees vary depending on the Rho Service you select. You shall pay fees and other amounts owing to Rho no later than fifteen (15) days of the date of the invoice which Rho provides to you. All fees and costs are deemed earned when paid and are non-refundable. Should you not pay sums owed to Rho by the agreed upon date, Rho reserves the right to suspend or terminate the Rho Services.

In addition to suspension and termination rights, Rho reserves the right to charge interest from the payment due date at the lower of 18% per annum, or the maximum amount allowed by law. Fees are exclusive of all taxes, levies or duties imposed by any national, federal, state or local taxing authorities. You shall be solely responsible for payment of all such taxes. Should Rho be required to pay any such taxes, you shall reimburse Rho for all tax payments in full, within thirty (30) days of receipt of an invoice therefore. Sponsor Banks and other Third-Party Service Providers may charge their own fees for their services; unless otherwise indicated on the Platform, fees hereunder do not include amounts you may owe the Sponsor Bank or other Third-Party Service Providers under your respective agreements with them.

16. Payment Of Fees And Other Amounts - ACH Consent

Fees for the Rho Services shall be paid as per the payment methods that are acceptable to Rho and integrated with the Rho Account. You grant Rho the right to debit via ACH the amount of the fees, plus other amounts due under this Agreement from your Bank Account(s) as per the ACH Consent (set out below). You agree to maintain sufficient funds in your Bank Account to cover the ACH transactions hereunder. The following is the “ACH Consent”:

You request to effect settlement of credits and debits from your Bank Account(s) by means of ACH and/or wire transfer in conjunction with the Rho Services. In accordance with your request, you authorize Rho and/or its affiliates to initiate debit and credit entries to your Bank Account (the details of which are provided by you through the Rho Account or by other means acceptable to Rho). You agree to maintain sufficient funds in your Bank Account to cover your requested debit transactions. You confirm that you have the authority to agree to such transactions and that your Bank Account indicated is a valid and legitimate account for the handling of these transactions. This authority is to remain in effect until Rho receives written notice from you revoking it. This authorization is for the payment of fees or any other sums owed to Rho. You certify that the appropriate authorizations are in place to allow you to authorize this method of settlement. All changes to the identification of your Bank Account under this authorization must be made in writing in accordance with the Agreement. You understand that if the information supplied as to the ABA routing number and account number of your Bank Account is incorrect, and funds could be incorrectly deposited, Rho will attempt to assist you in the recovery of such funds but has no liability as to restitution of the same. Rho’s assistance in recovering the funds, where available, will be billed to you at Rho’s current hourly rate for such work. You acknowledge that the origination of ACH transactions to your Bank Account must comply with the provisions of U.S. law.

17. Cross Guaranty

25. Arbitration Provision and Class Action Waiver

THIS ARBITRATION PROVISION AFFECTS YOUR RIGHTS. PLEASE READ CAREFULLY BEFORE AGREEING TO THESE TERMS. EXCEPT AS OTHERWISE NOTED, CAPITALIZED TERMS HAVE THE MEANING SPECIFIED IN THE AGREEMENT.

25.1 Generally

Any dispute arising in connection with this Agreement will be resolved by binding arbitration whether based in contract, tort, statute, fraud, misrepresentation, or any other legal theory, and regardless of whether a claim arises during or after the termination of this Agreement. YOU UNDERSTAND AND AGREE THAT, BY ENTERING INTO THIS AGREEMENT, YOU AND RHO ARE EACH WAIVING THE RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY OR TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION.

25.2 Expectation

Notwithstanding the foregoing, nothing in this Agreement will be deemed to waive, preclude, or otherwise limit the right of either party to: (a) bring an individual action in small claims court; (b) pursue an enforcement action through the applicable federal, state, or local agency if that action is available; (c) seek injunctive relief in a court of law in aid of arbitration; or (d) to file suit in a court of law to address an intellectual property infringement claim.

25.3 Arbitrator

Any arbitration between you and Rho will be settled under the Federal Arbitration Act and administered by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”). If you have any questions concerning the AAA or would like to obtain a copy of the AAA arbitration rules, you may call (800) 778-7879 or visit the AAA’s web site at: www.adr.org. The arbitrator has exclusive authority to resolve any dispute relating to the interpretation, applicability, or enforceability of this binding arbitration agreement. There shall be a single arbitrator who shall be an attorney practicing commercial law in New York. The arbitration shall take place in English.

25.4 Notice Of Arbitration; Process

A party who intends to seek arbitration must first send a written notice of the dispute to the other party by certified U.S. Mail or by Federal Express (signature required) or, only if that other party has not provided a Rho physical address, then by electronic mail (“Notice of Arbitration”). Rho’s address for Notice is: Under Technologies, Inc., dba Rho Technologies, 100 Crosby Street, New York, NY 10012. The Notice of Arbitration must: (a) describe the nature and basis of the claim or dispute; and (b) set forth the specific relief sought (“Demand”). The parties will make good faith efforts to resolve the claim directly, but if the parties do not reach an agreement to do so within 30 days after the Notice of Arbitration is received, you or Rho may commence an arbitration proceeding. All arbitration proceedings between the parties will be confidential unless otherwise agreed by the parties in writing. During the arbitration, the amount of any settlement offer made by you or Rho must not be disclosed to the arbitrator until after the arbitrator makes a final decision and award, if any. If the arbitrator awards you an amount higher than the last written settlement amount offered by Rho in settlement of the dispute prior to the award, Rho will pay to you the higher of: (i) the amount awarded by the arbitrator; or (ii) $10,000.

25.5 Arbitration Fees

If you commence arbitration in accordance with these Terms, payment of any fees will be decided by the AAA Rules. Any arbitration hearing will take place at a location to be agreed upon in New York County, New York, but if the claim is for $10,000 or less, you may choose whether the arbitration will be conducted: (a) solely on the basis of documents submitted to the arbitrator; (b) through a non-appearance based telephone hearing; or (c) by an in-person hearing as established by the AAA Rules in the county (or parish) of your billing address. If the arbitrator finds that either the substance of your claim or the relief sought in the Demand is frivolous or brought for an improper purpose (as measured by the standards set forth in Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 11(b)), then the payment of all fees will be governed by the AAA Rules. In that case, you agree to reimburse Rho for all monies previously disbursed by it that are otherwise your obligation to pay under the AAA Rules. Regardless of the manner in which the arbitration is conducted, the arbitrator must issue a reasoned written decision sufficient to explain the essential findings and conclusions on which the decision and award, if any, are based. The arbitrator may make rulings and resolve disputes as to the payment and reimbursement of fees or expenses at any time during the proceeding and upon request from either party made within fourteen (14) days of the arbitrator’s ruling on the merits.

25.6 No Class Actions

YOU AND RHO AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN YOUR OR ITS INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. Further, unless both you and Rho agree otherwise, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person’s claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding.

25.7 Modifications to This Arbitration Provision

If Rho makes any future change to this arbitration provision, other than a change to Rho’s address for Notice of Arbitration, you may reject the change by sending us written notice within thirty (30) days of the change to Rho’s address for Notice of Arbitration, in which case your Rho Account will be immediately terminated and this arbitration provision, as in effect immediately prior to the changes you rejected will survive.

ADDENDUM A: Rho One-Day Corporate Card Agreement

This agreement (“Card Agreement”) governs the use of your Rho One-Day Corporate Card (“Card”) issued by Webster Bank, N.A., an FDIC-insured national bank (the “Issuer”), and outlines the responsibilities of the Company and our responsibilities. Use of the Card constitutes the Company’s acceptance of this Card Agreement. This Card Agreement may be updated by us at any time in our sole and absolute discretion.

Please read this Card Agreement in its entirety and keep it for your records. In this Card Agreement, the words “you,” “your,” “yours,” mean the business agreeing to this Card Agreement (the “Company”), including each officer, employee, agent, or representative that is authorized by the Company to use the Card issued hereunder (each, a “Cardholder”). The Card may be used for business purposes only. The words “Rho,” “we,” “us,” “our,” and “ours,” means Webster Bank, N.A. or the program manager, Under Technologies, Inc., dba Rho Technologies, or their successors, affiliates and assigns, as the context may dictate.

Acceptance of this Card Agreement through the use of your Card authorizes and directs us to authorize initiated transactions and to ultimately debit your linked Rho Account (as defined in the Agreement) or other linked account(s) to settle the amounts owed to us during a Billing Cycle for such authorized transactions (“Charges”) and for the use of the Rho Services, including but not limited to our applications and financial products and tools. This may include fees and fines as set forth in the Agreement or this Card Agreement, as may be amended from time to time.

Company represents that all authorized Users acknowledge, understand and will comply with the obligations set forth herein, as well as any other applicable agreements, including the Agreement. 

Capitalized terms that are not defined in this Card Agreement have the definitions provided in the Agreement.

1. Rho One-Day Corporate Cards 

1.1 Issuer Card Terms

Cards are issued solely by the Issuer, Webster Bank, N.A. Issuer is the creditor responsible for funding your Charges that result from the use of your Card. This Card Agreement governs your use of the Cards. You may only use the Cards if you agree to the terms set forth in this Card Agreement and the terms and conditions applicable to opening an account with the Issuer. 

We and/or the Issuer may, at any time, update this Card Agreement. We may provide notice to you if we or the Issuer do. Your continued use of the Cards shall constitute your acceptance of this Card Agreement.

1.2 Credit Account Integration 

Subject to the Agreement, Company hereby authorizes us to integrate the Credit Account opened hereunder with the Rho Account, as such term is defined in the Agreement, so that the Company authorizes and consents to (i) information concerning the Credit Account be accessible in the Company’s Rho Account and vice versa and (ii) payments of any charges may be made directly from the Rho Account to the Credit Account at the discretion of us or the Issuer. You authorize that each debit from your Rho Account, or any other linked account you use to make payments to us or the Issuer, may be made based upon automatic transfer payment, ACH consent, or by any other means we may deem convenient or appropriate in our sole discretion.

1.3 Spending Limitation 

Company understands and agrees that the One-Day Corporate Card is a charge card; and all advances or extensions of credit provided to you in connection with this Card Agreement are uncommitted. The spending limit for you is determined based on underwriting criteria. Your spending limit shall be established by us in our sole discretion. The spending limit may depend on several factors including, but not limited to the industry the Company is engaged; spending volume; the nature of the Company’s business; the length of time the Company has been in business; and the Company’s revenue and cash, amongst others. At any time, we may, in our sole and absolute discretion, determine that Company does not satisfy our underwriting criteria requirements or that Company does or may impose unacceptable credit risks, compliance risks, reputational risks, and/or other risks to us or to our investor(s), funding source(s), and/or partner(s).

At any given time, the Company shall have one aggregate dollar spending limit, regardless of how many Cards can access the Credit Account. At no time shall we be required to disclose the spending limit to you. However, we may provide guidance to you and provide you with information about the spending limit. In our sole and absolute discretion, we may modify or change the spending limit at any time, at a frequency of our own choosing, with or without providing any notice to you. We reserve the right to reduce your spending limit to zero dollars at our sole discretion.

The spending limit we establish for the Company is a spending limit that applies to all Billing Cycles in the aggregate and to the Company as a whole, including all Cards associated with or in connection with the Credit Account. The amount of spending limit available to you shall be offset and reduced by the outstanding Charges and advances made in the current Billing Cycle and prior Billing Cycle, collectively, to the extent that such Charges and advances have not been paid in full. The sum of all Company’s Obligations must, at all times, be less than the spending limit. 

If Company’s Obligations, at any time, exceeds the Company’s spending limit determined by us, or you have otherwise breached this Card Agreement, we reserve the rights to declare that all such Company’s Obligations be immediately due and payable to satisfy such Company’s Obligations in full, as permitted by this Card Agreement and applicable law. 

We reserve the right, in our sole discretion to limit, freeze, suspend or terminate your Credit Account or Rho Account or restrict access to said accounts. We may also debit your Rho Account, or any other linked account, for any amounts owed to us at the time of such action.

We may hold, freeze, or temporarily suspend your ability to use your Card when the Card is used for a transaction where the final amount or cost of the transaction is unknown at the time of authorization. These transactions typically include the purchase at restaurants; hotel; and rental car companies). We may also place a hold on funds held in your Rho Account during this time. If a hold is placed on the funds held in your Rho Account, it may be in the amount less, than, equal to, or higher than the actual or final Charge against you. 

Before the Company is issued a Card to for its authorized Users, the Company agrees to provide us with true, accurate, correct, and the most up-to-date financial statements, and such other financial information about the Company that we may reasonably request (“Requested Financial Information”). Requested Financial Information includes but is not limited to the most up-to date profit and loss statement(s), balance sheet(s), and financial or such other information in connection with the Company’s, its owned affiliates, subsidiaries, and/or parent companies.

You authorize us to access at this time, and on a continuing basis, the Company’s accounting platform and bank information for underwriting and credit risk monitoring purposes. If you do not provide us with access to the Company’s accounting platform, or if the Company does not use an accounting platform which is accessible to us, you agree to send us, by electronic means, Requested Financial Information each month, no later than the thirtieth (30th) day of the following month. In addition to the foregoing, we may also require you to promptly provide us with Requested Financial Information at any given time.

The Company’s spending limit with us may, in our sole discretion, be decreased if we do not have access to the Company’s Requested Financial Information on a timely basis. Notwithstanding any other provision in this Card Agreement, except as provided by law, you may be held liable for consequential, incidental, special, or exemplary damages for your failure to provide Requested Financial Information.

1.4 Control of Credit Account

Authorized Administrators may set specific controls for and limits for Users through your Rho Account on the Platform. Under no circumstance may Administrators or Users, either on their own or collectively, exceed the spending limit established by us for the Company. 

1.5 Card Requests

Persons who are authorized by the Company may use the Card. The Card may not be used by unauthorized persons. Administrators may request Cards for themselves, if authorized, and other Users through your Rho Account. One Card may be issued per one person and multiple Cards may not be issued to one person, unless authorized by the Company. We have no obligation to confirm that the person using a Card is authorized and assume you will only permit authorized persons to use the Cards in accordance with the terms of this Card Agreement.

Any time a Card is requested for a User, the Administrator must provide us with information about the User. The information required to request and receive a Card for a User includes but may not be limited to the User’s full legal name; full date of birth; personal residence address; government identification number as well as contact information. 

After we process a User’s information, we may, in our sole discretion, issue the User a Card accessing your Account. The card may be issued in physical or virtual form. After Cards are issued, they may be managed through the Company’s Rho Account and through the Platform. The Company is responsible for securing Cards and account information (including Card, Rho Account, and Credit Account numbers, security codes and passwords). The Company is responsible for any and all of the User’s transactions.

The Company shall create a procedure to ensure that the information is protected from unauthorized persons or individuals who are not entitled to such information and that Company shall take steps to prevent the exposure of such information. 

1.6 Card Transactions 

Cards may only be used for authorized and bona fide business-related transactions. You are responsible for all such transactions and the individuals in the Company who are authorized to use Cards and you are responsible to inform and explain to Users the scope of transactions and activities Users are permitted to engage any time Users use the Card. You are also responsible for implementing protections and controls designed to protect the Card from unauthorized or prohibited use. Any time the Card is used by any individual, you are responsible for the use of the Card.

We, the Issuer, Third-Party Service Providers, or the Card Network may, at any time, without providing notice to you, decline or reverse charges for any reason. You agree to hold us, the Issuer, Third-Party Service Providers, and the Card Network harmless for any losses, harm, or damages caused by any Charges that are declined or reversed. 

Unless prohibited by applicable law, or otherwise provided in accordance with any liability waiver program provided by the Card Network (the “Card Network Liability Waiver Program”), you agree as follows:

  • if we issue at least ten (10) Cards to you and your Users, you will be liable for all unauthorized use of all Cards.

  • If we issue fewer than ten (10) Cards to you and your Users, your liability for unauthorized use of a Card will be limited to the lesser of (i) $50.00 or (ii) the amount of money, property, labor or services obtained by the unauthorized use.

The Company will not be liable, however, for any unauthorized use that occurs after we receive notice of suspected unauthorized use. For purposes of this Card Agreement, “unauthorized use” refers to any transaction by a person, other than the User to whom the relevant Card, if any, was issued, who was not authorized to use such Card by either such User or you and from which transaction neither the User nor the Company receives any direct or indirect benefit. Unless we have received notice and canceled the Card, use of a Card by a User at any time, even if the User is no longer associated with or employed by you, does not constitute unauthorized use. You agree that you will not impose any liability on any User for unauthorized use of any Card in excess of the amount permitted under Regulation Z of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, 12 C.F.R. Part 1026, as amended.

If a Card is used to effect a purchase in a foreign currency, the transaction will be converted into a U.S. dollars amount based on the exchange rate on the day the transaction is settled, plus any special currency exchange charges that may be imposed by us, the Card Network and/or by any third-party used to complete the transaction. The exchange rate applied to each such transaction is (1) a rate selected by the Card Network from the range of rates available in wholesale currency markets for the applicable central processing date, which rate may vary from the rate the Card Network itself receives, or (2) the government-mandated rate in effect for the applicable central processing date. Because of the special charges and possible differences in exchange rates between the time you initiated the transaction and the time we settle, the total charge for a foreign transaction may be less than or greater than the transaction at the time it was made. You agree to pay all foreign transaction fees imposed by us, and all international transaction fees and/or special charges that may be imposed by the Card Network and/or by any third-party used to complete the transaction. 

1.7 Notify Us if your Card is Lost or Stolen

The Card is a commercial credit card and does not provide consumer protections for lost or stolen credit cards or unauthorized transactions. Company shall immediately notify us if any unauthorized person obtains access to a Card or initiates an unauthorized transaction. If a Card is lost, misplaced or stolen or if you think someone may be using your Card or Credit Account without your permission, you must notify us IMMEDIATELY by emailing clientservice@rho.co. Do not use the Card or Credit Account after you notify us, even if the Card is found or returned. You will not be liable for any unauthorized use that occurs after you notify us; however, you must identify the charges on your monthly statement that you or any authorized Users did not make. Until you report a Card as lost or stolen or report an unauthorized transaction on a Card, Company is fully responsible for all transactions, even if the Card is lost, misplaced, stolen or used for unauthorized transactions.

1.8 Disputes 

We are not responsible for tracking or monitoring the Company’s Charges, expenses or transactions, although we may do so for the purpose of complying with applicable federal or state law. You and the Company are responsible for tracking Charges, expenses and transactions and reviewing Periodic Statements which we provide to you. You are responsible for seeking and identifying any Charges that are unauthorized, suspicious, or would like to dispute. For unauthorized Charges, you may contact us and we will investigate and based on such investigation, we may issue you a Chargeback.

Process: If the Company would like to dispute a Charge, transaction, or expense, you should first contact or attempt to contact the merchant to resolve the dispute. If you and the merchant do not settle the dispute or if the dispute is not resolved, you may initiate a Chargeback through your Rho Account or contact us. If a Chargeback is initiated, we will conduct an investigation and make a determination as to whether a full or partial refund will be honored. There are existing procedures established by the Card Network for resolving disputes. These procedures may require you to document or provide details about the Charge or transaction. You hereby acknowledge, understand, and accept that a Charge, Chargeback, and disputed charges are subject to the Card Network rules and regulations and we are limited and restricted to those rules and regulations in our investigation and dispute settlement process. 

Any Charges in connection with a dispute are subject to collection on the payment date if the dispute has not yet been resolved. A Chargeback resolved in your favor that result in a partial or whole refund will be credited to your Rho Account on following or future statement(s). If you do not pay the Charge, expense, or transaction on the due date while the investigation for the dispute is in progress or when resolution is pending, we may suspend or freeze your Rho Account or Credit Account, impose fees, reduce the spending limit, and/or reduce or eliminate your spending limit, and we may also, within our sole discretion, declare the Company’s Obligations be immediately due and payable to us and without notice, debit your Rho Account or any other linked account amounts required to satisfy Company’s Obligations in full, as permitted by this Card Agreement and applicable law.

2. Payments Due

2.1 Payments; Daily Billing Cycle; Billing Statements 

Cards have a Daily Billing Cycle. That is, we will aggregate all charges during each Daily Billing cycle and then cause the Credit Account to be settled so that it has a zero balance at the end of the same day if such day is a business day, otherwise the next business day. There is no grace period.

By using your Card, you agree and consent to pay the total due that is shown on each Billing Statement that we email to you or make available to you on the Platform. You acknowledge and agree that the entire new balance incurred during the Daily Billing Cycle is due and payable to us at the conclusion of the Daily Billing Cycle.

A Billing Statement will be electronically provided to you each day on which you have used your Card for a transaction or made a payment. We also will provide a Billing Statement to you if your Credit Account has a positive or negative balance of more than $1.00 or if a foreign transaction or other fee has been charged on that day. If none of the foregoing apply on any day, we generally will not provide a new Billing Statement to you for that day. A Billing Statement will be sent to the email address you provide when applying for your Rho Account. Your Billing Statement will show the “Account Balance” at the beginning of the day, the “Total Due” and the “Payment Due Date”, which shall be the amount due at the end of the day. The Billing Statement will also set forth an itemized list of current charges, payments and credits, and may include other important information. You will not be charged interest on your Credit Account and will not be charged any fees except as disclosed herein.

You agree to notify us of a change in your email address and/or your physical address by contacting Customer Service by logging into your Rho Account, by telephone or mail. We will deliver the billing statement to only one email address. If our emails to you bounce back or are rejected by the email server, for your protection we will immediately suspend Cards associated with your Account.

2.2 Authorization to Initiate a Payment 

PLEASE READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY.

You hereby authorize Issuer, Rho or their respective assigns, assignees, or successors to collect any or all amounts owed under this Card Agreement by causing funds equal to the aggregate of all charges you originate during the Daily Balance Cycle to be withdrawn and transferred from your Rho Account and/or any linked account to us. You authorize us to debit your Rho Account and/or collect any or all amounts owed to us one day following any given Charge. We may use ACH pulls through the ACH network to obtain any or all amounts due to us. If we use the ACH network, such transactions will be governed by the rules established by the National Automated Clearinghouse Association (“NACHA”) for business-related ACH debits. You also authorize us to withdraw from your Rho Account and/or any linked account any past due amounts and fees that you incur hereunder.

At all times, you agree we have your authorization to make automatic and recurring payment transactions to use the Rho Services as described in the Agreement and this Card Agreement. A failure to maintain such automatic and recurring payment authorization constitutes a breach of this Card Agreement and will result in the termination of your Card.

If we are unable to automatically obtain amounts due and owing to us under this Card Agreement from your Rho Account and/or from your linked accounts, you agree to promptly, but in any case within one (1) Business Day, remit to us any and all amounts owed to us and any and all amounts past due.

You also authorize us, the Issuer, or their respective assigns, assignees, or successors to obtain funds from your Rho Account or any linked account, without providing notice to you, on any date and at any time, in our sole discretion, when the total balance in your Rho Account or linked accounts is less than the balance minimum required by our underwriting criteria. You authorize us to obtain such funds in the event your Company does not meet or no longer meets our underwriting or credit requirements.

YOU AGREE AND UNDERSAND THAT OBLIGATIONS UNDER THIS AGREEMENT ARE SUBJECT TO A CROSS-GURANTEE FROM YOUR AFFILIATES, AS SET FORTH BELOW IN SECTION 17 BELOW.

All payments owed to us under this Card Agreement shall be paid by you in U.S. dollars.

Right to Cure: Any error by Rho with respect to the processing of Card Accounts may be cured and you hereby provide us with such right to cure within a commercially reasonable time. In curing, or attempting to cure, we may credit or refund you in the amount of the error.

2.3 Collections

All amounts due to us must be paid on the daily due date on any day for which there is a Charge. If you do not pay the full amount due to us on the due date, we may attempt to collect the unpaid amounts owed to us from your Rho Account or any of your linked accounts. We may attempt to collect the unpaid amounts owed in part or in full. The collection of any of our unpaid amounts from you will not in any way constitute our waiver of rights or entitlement to legal remedy against you. 

You will not incur any interest charges on purchases made with the Card associated with the Credit Account if the account is paid in full and on time at the end of each Daily Billing Cycle and there are no existing breaches under this Card Agreement. 

You authorize and consent to us collecting or debiting any amounts owed to us from any joint account you own or have title to at Rho. We may exercise this right directly against the Company, its subsidiaries, affiliates, assignees, successors, or assigns to benefit us in our capacity as a creditor and servicer, as well as any other creditors who may be entitled to the legal seizure of the Company’s assets. 

In the event of default under this Card Agreement, we shall have, to the fullest extent permitted by law, the right to set off and apply any and all deposits, against the Company’s Obligations, whether such deposit account is held by Rho, with or without providing notice to you. 

We may require you to pay the full amount owed to us if you breach this Card Agreement or the Agreement. All costs and expenses, including legal fees and collection fees, and interest related thereto will be your responsibility to pay.

2.4 Fees

You are responsible for paying the fees. At any time, in our sole and absolute discretion, subject to applicable law, we may determine a fee and change such fee. We may charge fees in connection with the Rho Services, providing advances, transaction fees (including up to 1% of the transaction amount on foreign transactions), usage fees, late or failed payment fees, or fees in connection with the misuse of the Rho Services. Fees are not limited to the aforementioned list and we reserve our right to charge additional or other fees. 

We reserve the right to charge clients all fees associated with the collection of any past due amount. Those fees include but are not limited to all collection costs, reasonable attorneys’ fees, court costs and all other expenses permitted by applicable laws.

1. Rho Corporate Cards

1.1 Issuer Card Terms

Cards are issued solely by the Issuer, Webster Bank, N.A. Issuer is the creditor responsible for funding your Charges that result from the use of your Card. This Card Agreement governs your use of the Cards. You may only use the Cards if you agree to the terms set forth in this Card Agreement and the terms and conditions applicable to opening an account with the Issuer.

We and/or the Issuer may, at any time, update this Card Agreement. We may provide notice to you if we or the Issuer do. Your continued use of the Cards shall constitute your acceptance of this Card Agreement.

1.2 Credit Account Integration

You authorize that each debit from your Rho Account, or any other linked account you use to make payments to us or the Issuer, may be made based upon automatic transfer payment, ACH consent, or by any other means we may deem convenient or appropriate in our sole discretion.

1.3 Spending Limitation

All advances or extensions of credit provided to you in connection with this Card Agreement are uncommitted. We set the spending limit for you and determine our underwriting criteria. Your spending limit shall be established by us and depend on several factors including, but not limited to the industry the Company is engaged; spending volume; the nature of the Company’s business; the length of time the Company has been in business; and the Company’s revenue and cash, amongst others. At any time, we may, in our sole and absolute discretion, determine that Company does not satisfy our underwriting criteria requirements or that Company does or may impose unacceptable credit risks, compliance risks, reputational risks, and/or other risks to us or to our investor(s), funding source(s), and/or partner(s).

At any given time, the Company shall have one aggregate dollar spending limit, regardless of how many Cards can access your Credit Account. At no time shall we be required to disclose the spending limit to you. However, we may provide guidance to you and provide you with information about the spending limit. In our sole and absolute discretion, we may modify or change the spending limit at any time, at a frequency of our own choosing, with or without providing any notice to you. We reserve the right to reduce your spending limit to zero dollars at our sole discretion.

The spending limit we establish for the Company is a spending limit that applies to all Billing Cycles in the aggregate and to the Company as a whole, including all Cards associated with or in connection with the Credit Account. The amount of spending limit available to you shall be offset and reduced by the outstanding Charges and advances made in the current Billing Cycle and prior Billing Cycle, collectively, to the extent that such Charges and advances have not been paid in full. The sum of all Company’s Obligations must, at all times, be less than the spending limit.

If Company’s Obligations, at any time, exceeds the Company’s spending limit determined by us, or you have otherwise breached this Card Agreement, we reserve the rights to declare that all such Company’s Obligations be immediately due and payable to satisfy such Company’s Obligations in full, as permitted by this Card Agreement and applicable law.

We reserve the right, in our sole discretion to limit, freeze, suspend or terminate your Credit Account or Rho Account or restrict access to said accounts. We may also debit your Rho Account, or any other linked account, for any amounts owed to us at the time of such action.

We may hold, freeze, or temporarily suspend your ability to use your Card when the Card is used for a transaction where the final amount or cost of the transaction is unknown at the time of authorization. These transactions typically include the purchase at restaurants; hotel; and rental car companies). We may also place a hold on funds held in your Rho Account during this time. If a hold is placed on the funds held in your Rho Account, it may be in the amount less, than, equal to, or higher than the actual or final Charge against you.

Before you, or the Company, is issued a Card, you agree to provide us with true, accurate, correct, and the most up-to-date financial statements, and such other financial information about the Company that we may reasonably request (“Requested Financial Information”). Requested Financial Information includes but is not limited to the most up-to date profit and loss statement(s), balance sheet(s), and financial or such other information in connection with the Company’s, its owned affiliates, subsidiaries, and/or parent companies.

You authorize us to access at this time, and on a continuing basis, the Company’s accounting platform and bank information for underwriting and credit risk monitoring purposes. If you do not provide us with access to the Company’s accounting platform, or if the Company does not use an accounting platform which is accessible to us, you agree to send us, by electronic means, Requested Financial Information each month, no later than the thirtieth (30th) day of the following month. In addition to the foregoing, we may also require you to promptly provide us with Requested Financial Information at any given time.

The Company’s spending limit with us may, in our sole discretion, be decreased if we do not have access to the Company’s Requested Financial Information on a timely basis. Notwithstanding any other provision in this Card Agreement, except as provided by law, you may be held liable for consequential, incidental, special, or exemplary damages for your failure to provide Requested Financial Information.

1.4 Control of Credit Account

Authorized Administrators may set specific controls for and limits for Users through your Rho Account. Under no circumstance may Administrators or Users, either on their own or collectively, exceed the spending limit established by us for the Company.

1.5 Card Requests

Persons who are authorized by the Company may use the Card. The Card may not be used by unauthorized persons. Administrators may request Cards for themselves, if authorized, and other Users through your Rho Account. One Card may be issued per one person and multiple Cards may not be issued to one person, unless authorized by the Company.

Any time a Card is requested for a User, the Administrator must provide us with information about the User. The information required to request and receive a Card for a User includes but may not be limited to the User’s full legal name; full date of birth; personal residence address; and contact information.

After we process a User’s information, we may, in our sole discretion, issue the User a Card. The card may be issued in physical or virtual form. After Cards are issued, they may be managed through the Company’s Rho Account. The Company is responsible for securing Cards and account information (including Card, Rho Account, and Credit Account numbers, security codes and passwords). The Company is responsible for any and all of the User’s transactions.

The Company shall create a procedure to ensure that the information is protected from unauthorized persons or individuals who are not entitled to such information and that Company shall take steps to prevent the exposure of such information.

1.6 Card Transactions

Cards may only be used for authorized and bona fide business-related transactions. You are responsible for all such transactions and the individuals in the Company who are authorized to use Cards and you are responsible to inform and explain to Users the scope of transactions and activities Users are permitted to engage any time Users use the Card. You are also responsible for implementing protections and controls designed to protect the Card from unauthorized or prohibited use. Any time the Card is used by any individual, you are responsible for the use of the Card, provided that you provided the individual with access to the Card. 

We, the Issuer, Third-Party Service Providers, or the Card Network may, at any time, without providing notice to you, decline or reverse charges for any reason. You agree to hold us, the Issuer, Third-Party Service Providers, and the Card Network harmless for any losses, harm, or damages caused by any Charges that are declined or reversed. 

Unless prohibited by applicable law, or otherwise provided in accordance with any liability waiver program provided by the Card Network (the “Card Network Liability Waiver Program”), you agree as follows:

  • If we issue at least ten (10) Cards to you and your Users, you will be liable for all unauthorized use of all Cards.

  • If we issue fewer than ten (10) Cards to you and your Users, your liability for unauthorized use of a Card will be limited to the lesser of (i) $50.00 or (ii) the amount of money, property, labor or services obtained by the unauthorized use.

The Company will not be liable, however, for any unauthorized use that occurs after we receive notice of suspected unauthorized use. For purposes of this Card Agreement, “unauthorized use” refers to any transaction by a person, other than the User to whom the relevant Card, if any, was issued, who was not authorized to use such Card by either such User or you and from which transaction neither the User nor the Company receives any direct or indirect benefit. Unless we have received notice and canceled the Card, use of a Card by a User at any time, even if the User is no longer associated with or employed by you, does not constitute unauthorized use. You agree that you will not impose any liability on any User for unauthorized use of any Card in excess of the amount permitted under Regulation Z of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, 12 C.F.R. Part 1026, as amended.

If a Card is used to effect a purchase in a foreign currency, we will convert the transaction into a U.S. dollars amount based on the exchange rate on the day we settle the transaction, plus any special currency exchange charges that may be imposed by us, the Card Network and/or by any third-party used to complete the transaction. The exchange rate applied to each such transaction is (1) a rate selected by the Card Network from the range of rates available in wholesale currency markets for the applicable central processing date, which rate may vary from the rate the Card Network itself receives, or (2) the government-mandated rate in effect for the applicable central processing date. Because of the special charges and possible differences in exchange rates between the time we settle and the time you initiated the transaction, the total charge for a foreign transaction may be less than or greater than the transaction at the time it was made. You agree to pay all foreign transaction fees imposed by us, and all international transaction fees and/or special charges that may be imposed by the Card Network and/or by any third-party used to complete the transaction. 

1.7 Notify Us if your Card is Lost or Stolen

The Card is a commercial credit card and does not provide consumer protections for lost or stolen credit cards or unauthorized transactions. Company shall immediately notify us if any unauthorized person obtains access to a Card or initiates an unauthorized transaction. If a Card is lost, misplaced or stolen or if you think someone may be using your Card or Credit Account without your permission, you must notify us IMMEDIATELY by emailing clientservice@rho.co. Do not use the Card or Credit Account after you notify us, even if the Card is found or returned. You will not be liable for any unauthorized use that occurs after you notify us; however, you must identify the charges on your monthly statement that you or any authorized Users did not make. Until you report a Card as lost or stolen or report an unauthorized transaction on a Card, Company is fully responsible for all transactions, even if the Card is lost, misplaced, stolen or used for unauthorized transactions. 

1.8 Disputes

We are not responsible for tracking or monitoring your Charges, expenses or transactions, although we may do so for the purpose of complying with applicable federal or state law. You and the Company are responsible for tracking Charges, expenses and transactions and reviewing Periodic Statements which we provide to you. You are responsible for seeking and identifying any Charges that are unauthorized, suspicious, or seek to dispute. For unauthorized Charges, you may contact us and we will investigate.

Process: If you would like to dispute a Charge, transaction, or expense, you should first contact or attempt to contact the merchant to resolve the dispute. If you and the merchant do not settle the dispute or if the dispute is not resolved, you may initiate the Chargeback process through your Rho Account or contact us. If an investigation is initiated, we will review and make a determination as to whether a full or partial refund will be issued There are existing procedures established by the Card Network for resolving disputes. These procedures could require you to document or provide details about the Charge or transaction. You hereby acknowledge, understand, and accept that a Charge, Chargeback, and disputed charges are subject to the Card Network rules and regulations and we may be limited and restricted to those rules and regulations in our investigation and dispute settlement process. 

Any Charges in connection with a dispute are subject to collection on the payment date if the dispute has not yet been resolved. A Chargeback resolved in your favor that result in a partial or whole refund will be credited to your Rho Account on following or future statement(s). In the event you do not pay the Charge, expense, or transaction on the due date while the investigation for the dispute is in progress or when resolution is pending, you agree that we may suspend or freeze your Rho Account or Credit Account, impose fees, reduce the spending limit, and/or reduce or eliminate your spending limit, and we may also, within our sole discretion, declare the Company’s Obligations be immediately due and payable to us and without notice, debit your Rho Account or any other linked account amounts required to satisfy Company’s Obligations in full, as permitted by this Card Agreement and applicable law.

If you elect to participate, this agreement, including any other guidelines, rules and additional terms referenced herein (collectively, the “Service Agreement”), sets forth the terms and conditions governing each of Under Technologies, Inc., dba Rho Technologies, and you in connection with the online services known as Rho Prime Treasury, which includes tools for portfolio allocation (“Portfolio Services”), recommendations for brokers or securities (“Recommendations”) and discretionary investment management services in the form of an automated asset manager (the “Paid Services”) (the Portfolio Services, Recommendations and Paid Services, collectively, the “Prime Services”). As used in this Service Agreement, the terms “we,” “our,” “us,” and “Rho” mean RBB Treasury LLC, its subsidiaries, affiliates, directors, employees, agents, networks, applications, mobile applications, other services provided by us, as well as our website at https://rho.co. As used in this Service Agreement, the words “you,” “your,” “yours,” means the Company signing the Agreement, including each officer, employee, agent or representative that is authorized by the Company to open a Rho Prime Treasury Account.

The Prime Services are provided to you subject to this Service Agreement. By accessing the Prime Services or on our partners’ websites through which we have hosted or otherwise made accessible the Services (“Partner Sites”), you agree to be bound by this Service Agreement. This Service Agreement sets out the legally binding terms with respect to your use of, and our provision of, the Prime Services.

We are an investment adviser currently registered with the SEC. Please see our Form ADV for additional information and for a discussion of the risks and conflicts of interest that may be raised by our provision of the Prime Services.

1. Paid Services

Rho Prime Treasury also provides discretionary investment management through the Paid Services. The Paid Services includes the following features:

  • Automated portfolio management of your cash and liquidity needs;

  • Managed automatic rebalancing of your portfolio; and

  • Periodic account review.

For a full description of the Paid Services, its methodology and applicable fees see our Form ADV.

Rho Prime Treasury does not provide tax advice. When you enroll in the Paid Services, you agree that we will allocate your assets to your selected investment objective(s). In determining the appropriate portfolio options to make available to you, we take into consideration your risk tolerance, age, expected date of retirement, savings, and income level based on the information that you provide to us. The Paid Services’ investment objectives are based solely on the information that you disclose to us and any portfolio objectives you provide to us, or that we prepare on your behalf. We do not verify that the information that you provide to us is accurate. Please note that rebalancing transactions and initial purchases to align your account with your selected investment objectives may result in fees. For example, there may be additional transaction fees, redemption fees, loads, capital gains and other fees associated with the rebalanced portfolio. You may wish to consult a tax professional to review the proposed portfolio(s) selected for the Paid Services.

All securities and investments are offered by our Partner Site brokers, which are registered broker dealers and members FINRA/SIPC.

2. Alerts

We may provide automatic alerts and voluntary account-related alerts from time to time. Automatic alerts may be sent to you following certain events of interest, such as changes made online to your Rho Prime Treasury or Partner Site account (e.g., a change in your password) or events or movements in your portfolio.

Voluntary account alerts may be turned on by default as part of the Prime Services. They may then be customized, deactivated or reactivated by you. We may add new alerts from time to time, or cease to provide certain alerts at any time in our sole discretion. Electronic alerts for a given account will be sent to the email address you have provided as your primary email address for that account. If your email address or your mobile device’s email address changes, you are responsible for informing us of that change. Changes to your email address or mobile number will apply to all of your alerts. Because alerts are not encrypted, we will never include your password. However, alerts may include your User ID and some information about your accounts. Anyone with access to your email will be able to view the content of these alerts. At any time you may disable future voluntary alerts.

‍You understand and agree that any alerts provided to you through the Prime Services may be delayed or prevented by a variety of factors. We use reasonable best efforts to provide alerts in a timely manner with accurate information. However, except as otherwise provided herein, we neither guarantee the delivery nor the accuracy of the content of any alert. Furthermore, except as otherwise provided herein, you also agree that we shall not be liable for any delays, failure to deliver, or misdirected delivery of any alert; for any errors in the content of an alert; or for any actions taken or not taken by you or any third party in reliance on an alert.

3. Registered Investment Advisor

The rules and regulations applicable to registered investment advisors under the Investment Advisers Act of 1940, as amended (the “Advisers Act”), may require us to make certain requests of you in connection with certain types of Recommendations. In particular, we may need to provide you with additional information, ask that you acknowledge that such additional information was provided and, if required, obtain additional information from you. Rho Prime Treasury may also be subject to the regulations of state securities authorities.
