1. The Visa Solution
The Visa Solution is operated by Visa U.S.A. Inc. (“Visa”). Contact information for Visa is included under Contact Us below.
As used in these Terms, the term "Visa Solution" shall mean all of the following: all Visa Click to Pay and/or Visa Checkout features, functionality and services, now available or added in the future, whether branded as Visa Click to Pay, Visa Checkout or a different name, and whether available through the Visa Solution website or mobile site as operated as a domain or subdomain ("Website") or through an application or functionality offered by an issuing bank or payment institution, merchant, or other third party (collectively, "Services"); the logos, designs, text, images, videos, graphics, software and other content and materials of Visa or its licensors available through the Visa Solution, and the selection and arrangement thereof (collectively, "Content"); and Visa's hardware, software and networks associated with making the Visa Solution available to you (collectively, the "Visa Solution System").
The Visa Solution offers you (i) the ability to store payment account and other related information such as e-mail address, mobile phone number, and billing and shipping addresses ("Card Details") for your Visa credit, debit and reloadable prepaid cards and other cards or payment methods that Visa has decided are eligible to be used with the Visa Solution ("Eligible Cards"); and (ii) the ability to use the Visa Solution to share your Card Details with merchants, or other third parties, that display the Click to Pay icon where Visa is accepted or that display the Visa Checkout mark, to allow them to process a transaction. Visa may automatically update certain Card Details such as card number and expiration date, as provided by the financial institution or other entity which issued your Eligible Card(s) (“Issuer”).
Your Issuer may provide additional information about your Eligible Card(s), such as the availability of rewards points, instalments options, and other Eligible Card(s) benefits. If so, we present this information to you in the Visa Solution as-is, as received from the Issuer of your Eligible Card. If you have any questions about this information, please contact your Issuer. Where applicable, Visa will process your information to determine if you are eligible for these options or benefits, and to display these to you.
When you use the Visa Solution, we will transmit your Card Details to the merchant, or other applicable third party, in order to allow them to process the transaction. Visa may generate a numerical surrogate of your Visa Eligible Card payment account number (a token) to be used in order to help protect your Eligible Cards. You agree that the merchant or other applicable third party can transmit information about the transaction to the applicable network for your Eligible Card and that your transaction will be paid for using the Eligible Card you have selected.
You acknowledge that the Card Details stored or provided through use of the Visa Solution are provided by you or, in certain jurisdictions, on your behalf by your Issuer or a merchant or third party, and contain personal financial information. You may only use Eligible Cards in connection with the Visa Solution if your Issuer regards you as the cardholder or authorised user and your name is shown on the Eligible Card. You acknowledge and agree that you are responsible for the completeness and accuracy of the Card Details and other information you store with the Visa Solution or provide through use of the Visa Solution. You must only use valid email addresses and phone numbers owned or controlled by you. Although Visa may perform certain validation checks for Card Details for Visa cards, Visa is not responsible for the accuracy of Card Details or the other information you provide, including whether Card Details are current and up-to-date.
The Visa Solution is not a bank or payment account and does not offer any credit to you or a merchant. Any transaction that you make using the Visa Solution will be reflected in the account which relates to the Eligible Card you use for the transaction. Payment of that account is solely a matter between you and the Issuer of the Eligible Card.

Visa reserves the right to remove your Eligible Cards from, or suspend or terminate your use of, the Visa Solution and/or, if you have a password, require you to change your password, if Visa believes it is no longer secure.
