1.3. These Scale User Terms are supplemental to, form part of and must be read together with other terms, conditions and policies that govern the Airwallex Services, each of which are available at Airwallex.com, and other Airwallex terms, conditions or policies to which you may have agreed (collectively, the “Airwallex Agreements,” and, together with these Scale User Terms, the “Customer Agreement“).

1.4. The person or entity that operates the software-as-a-service solution (“Platform”) for which you have entered into an agreement, defined in clause 1.5, that requires your agreement to these Scale User Terms (“Platform Provider”) has entered into a separate agreement with us for the performance of services provided by us to allow you to connect with a Platform in accordance with these Scale User Terms (such services, “Scale Activities,” and such separate agreement between us and Platform Provider, “Platform Provider Scale Agreement”).

1.5. You have entered into a separate agreement with the Platform Provider for certain services (the “Platform Agreement“).

1.6. Capitalized terms shall have the same meaning as defined in the Airwallex Agreements, or as otherwise defined in these Scale User Terms.

1.7. To the extent there is a conflict between the Airwallex Agreements and these Scale User Terms, the Scale User Terms will prevail. To the extent there is a conflict between the Customer Agreements and Platform Provider’s ordering document, the Platform Provider’s ordering document will prevail.

  1. TERM

These Scale User Terms shall take effect on the date you sign onto the subscription license with the Platform Provider in accordance with the Platform Agreement. Such date shall also be deemed to be the date you agree to these terms (“Commencement Date”). These Scale User Terms shall remain in full force during the subscription license term unless the Scale User Terms are otherwise terminated in accordance with clause 12 (the ” Scale Term“).

  1. SCALE ACTIVITIES

Where this is provided for in the Platform Agreement, Customer agrees that the Platform Provider will be appointed as an authorized user pursuant to the Airwallex Agreements with the authority to view information concerning Customer’s Airwallex account and do such things on Customer’s behalf as is set out in the Platform Agreement (for example, deduct Platform Fees from Customer’s Airwallex Account where Customer has authorized the Platform Provider to do so).

4.3. Customer agrees that one or more Airwallex Services may be provided by Airwallex affiliates, or their respective sponsors or partners (“Third-Party Service Providers“), and Customer may therefore be required to enter into one or more agreements with such parties.

5.3. The amount of Platform Provider Fees applicable to the products and services provided to you by the Platform Provider under the Platform Agreement (“Platform Services”) will be governed by the terms of the Platform Agreement.

You will need to tell the Platform Provider that you’ve withdrawn the authorization, and in any event you hereby consent to us informing them that you have done so.

5.5. Upon receipt by us of a notice pursuant to clause 5.4 above, any authorization provided by you for deductions pursuant to clause 5.2 shall be deemed to have been revoked and we will cease to accept instructions for such deductions from the Platform Provider.
