User Agreement

This User Agreement is effective as of 2014-01-16 and governs the terms under which you may access and use Xoom's websites (for purposes of this User Agreement, "websites" includes our mobile applications) and the services associated with it (together, the "Service"). Do not access or use the Service if you do not agree to be bound by the User Agreement. By accessing and using the Service, you are agreeing to the User Agreement.

As used throughout this User Agreement, the terms "Xoom", "we", "us", and "our" refer to Xoom Corporation, a Delaware corporation, together with its employees, consultants, directors, successors, affiliates, and assignees. The terms "you" and "your" refer to users of the Service, whether in their capacity as Senders, Recipients, or visitors to our websites.

  1. OVERVIEW OF THE SERVICE

    The Service was created to help our customers send money transfers to family and friends. We recommend that you use the Service only to send money to people you know personally. You should never use the Service to send money to strangers.

    CONSUMER FRAUD ALERT: PROTECT YOURSELF FROM SCAMS AND FRAUD. Only send Transactions to people you know, safeguard your password, send for yourself and not for others, and use Xoom for legal purposes only. Click here to learn more about sending money safely with Xoom. Please let us know immediately if you believe someone is trying to scam or defraud you or if your Xoom username or password have been lost or stolen by telephone at 1-800-935-7154 (outside the United States, call +1 (415) 395-4342) or email at reportfraud@xoom.com.

    The Service allows people to send and receive money around the world. A "Sender" is someone who uses the Service to send money. A "Recipient" is someone who receives money from a Sender through the Service. The "Recipient Country" is the country in which the Recipient receives money through the Service. A "Transaction" is a specific instruction to send money through the Service. The "Transaction Amount" is the amount that the Sender provides to Xoom to send the Transaction. The "Payout Amount" is the amount paid out to the Recipient, excluding any taxes or charges that may be levied under the laws of the Recipient Country (the "Local Taxes").

  2. ACCESSING THE SERVICE

    1. Eligible Users. You must be at least eighteen (18) years old to access or use the Service as a Sender. You must be able to form legally binding contracts under applicable law. Other restrictions may apply.
    2. Mobile Services. The Service is also accessible via a mobile device. To the extent you access the Service through a mobile device, your wireless service carrier's standard charges, data rates and other fees may apply.
    3. Not Available to Certain Users. The Service may not be available in whole or in part in different countries and jurisdictions as determined by local laws and regulations.
  3. OFFER AND ACCEPTANCE

    If you submit a Transaction, you are requesting that we process your Transaction, an offer which we may accept or reject at our sole discretion from our place of business in San Francisco, California.

  4. PAYMENT

    1. Charges. For each Transaction that you submit, you agree to pay us a transfer fee (the "Transfer Fee") plus the Transaction Amount. Additional charges may apply. Payment is due at the time your Transaction is submitted for processing. Xoom only accepts payment in U.S. Dollars. If you submit a Transaction that results in Xoom's being charged non-sufficient fund fees, chargeback fees, or other similar fees, you agree to reimburse us for all such fees. In some instances, for Transactions funded from the Sender's bank account, you agree that Xoom may debit your bank account for less than the amount of the transfer (i.e., for a transfer of $500, Xoom may debit $499.98 from the bank account), as part of our effort to confirm ownership of the account.
    2. Payment. In order for us to collect payment from you, you authorize us to access, charge, or debit funds from any of the payment instruments you provide us in connection with your use of the Service (each, a "Payment Instrument") including, for example, your credit card, debit card or bank account. If your payment fails or is insufficient, you authorize us to re-try one or more times using the same or a different Payment Instrument. For example, if there are insufficient funds in your bank account at the time you submit your Transaction, we may try to debit your bank account or charge your credit card at a later time. You represent and warrant that you are the lawful owner of your Payment Instrument(s).
    3. Other Charges. Xoom is not responsible for any fees or charges that may be imposed by the financial institutions associated with your Payment Instruments. For example (without limitation), some credit card issuers may treat the use of your credit card to use the Service as a "cash advance" rather than a purchase transaction, and may impose additional fees and interest rates for the transaction. Xoom is not responsible for any non-sufficient funds charges, chargeback fees, or other similar charges that might be imposed on you by your bank, credit card issuer, or other provider.
    4. Foreign Currencies. Xoom and its Service Providers (defined below) usually make money when you pay for a Transaction in one currency and the Transaction is paid out in another currency, which is based on the difference between the exchange rate at which we buy foreign currency and the exchange rate provided to you. You agree, when you send a Transaction to a Recipient's bank account, that the bank account is denominated in the same currency as the Transaction (e.g., if your Transaction calls for Xoom to deposit pesos into the Recipient's bank account, then you confirm that the Recipient's bank account is denominated in pesos).
    5. Scheduled Money Transfers. By utilizing Xoom's scheduled money transfers product, you authorize us to submit transactions on your behalf, in accordance with your instructions. You understand that Xoom will continue to process recurring transactions until you instruct us to stop. You further understand that you must schedule money transfers at least five (5) business days before the transfer date. If you cancel a recurring transaction prior to 11:59:59 PM (Pacific Time) on the day before the transaction is scheduled for processing, we will cancel the transaction, and your funding source will not be debited. For transactions that involve exchanges of foreign currency, you understand that Xoom may be unable to predict the foreign exchange rate on the date of the transaction, and you agree that we may apply whatever rate is in effect on the Transaction date.
  5. TRANSACTION PAY OUTS

    1. Service Providers. We work with local banks, money exchange houses, and other third party service providers (each, a "Service Provider") to pay funds out to Recipients. You, in your capacity as a Sender, hereby appoint your Recipient as your agent for the purpose of receiving funds in connection with the Service. We attempt to provide up-to-date information on our websites regarding the location, availability, and hours of our Service Providers. However, you agree that Xoom is not responsible for any inaccurate or incomplete information that may be posted on its websites.
    2. Verification. Recipients may be required to prove their identity before receiving funds by presenting valid, unexpired identification document(s) from a list of acceptable forms of identification. In addition, Recipients may be required to provide a Transaction number and/or another, similar identifier associated with their Transaction. You give Xoom permission to store all such data, as necessary to provide the Service. Please verify account information and bank details are correct prior to submitting your Transaction because Xoom is not responsible for detecting inaccuracies. If account information and bank details are incorrect, money may be sent to the wrong bank account and may not be recovered.
  6. RESTRICTIONS

    1. General. We may, at any time and in our sole discretion, refuse any Transaction or limit the amount to be transferred, either on a per Transaction basis or on an aggregated basis without prior notice. Any such limits may be imposed on individual accounts, linked accounts, or on related accounts or households, in Xoom's sole discretion. We reserve the right at any time, and from time to time, to modify or discontinue the Service (or any part thereof) with or without notice.
    2. Delays. Your Transaction may be delayed or cancelled in the course of our efforts to verify your identity, validate your Transaction instructions and Payment Instruments, contact and locate you or your Recipient, and otherwise comply with applicable law. Business hours and currency availability of our Service Providers may also cause delays. Nevertheless, you may be entitled to a refund in certain circumstances, as described below in Section 9.
    3. Commercial Transactions. The use of the Service for commercial purposes is prohibited. You agree that you will only use the Service to send money to people that you know personally and for personal reasons. If Xoom discovers you are using the Service to purchase goods or services, we may cancel your Transaction(s) and close your account.
    4. Pay Only When Received or "POWR." For certain Xoom transfers, your Recipient may receive the funds before your funding source is debited for the transfer (and any accompanying fees). We call this product "POWR", though it may be called by different names depending on the Recipient Country or Service Provider. If your Transaction qualifies for Xoom's POWR product, then your funding source will not be debited until your Recipient receives the funds. You understand that not all Transactions are eligible for POWR, and that the POWR product is subject to many factors, including (without limitation) Recipient Country, funding source, transfer amount, transaction history and approval by Xoom's proprietary verification system. You understand that you may or may not know whether you have qualified for POWR until after you have authorized the transfer. Xoom reserves the right to terminate, suspend, or modify POWR at any time, and to reject any transfer from qualification for POWR at any time, for any reason.
    5. Unauthorized Transactions. You may not use the Service in violation of this User Agreement or applicable laws, rules or regulations. It is a violation of the User Agreement to use the Service for commercial purposes, including (without limitation) for purchases of goods or payments for services of any kind. Xoom may cancel any Transaction and close any account that it suspects is being utilized for any of the following activities (without limitation): sexually-oriented materials or services; gambling activities; fraud; money-laundering; funding terrorist organizations; purchase or sale of tobacco, firearms, prescription drugs, or other controlled substances; or sending money to a Recipient that has violated the User Agreement. If you use the Service in connection with illegal conduct, Xoom reserves the right to report you to the appropriate law enforcement agency or agencies.
    6. Ineligibility. Not all Payment Instruments are available to all customers at all times. We may, in our sole discretion, refuse Transactions funded from certain Payment Instruments. We may, at our sole discretion, refuse Transactions from certain Senders and to certain Recipients, including without limitation, entities and individuals that are included on the Specially Designated Nationals list, Non-cooperative Countries and Territories list, and such other lists as may be issued from time to time by the U.S. Department of Treasury and other government agencies.
    7. Others. You may not submit or receive a Transaction (i) on behalf of any other person, (ii) on behalf of a business or other non-human entity or (iii) on behalf of a charitable organization without Xoom's express consent. We may, at any time and in our sole discretion, (A) refuse any Transaction, or (B) close multiple accounts held by an individual, persons related to the individual or persons living in the same household as the individual.
    8. No Changes. We generally do not let you change the details of your Transaction once it has been submitted to us for processing. We rely on the information you provide and it is your responsibility to make sure your Transaction details are accurate before you submit your Transaction for processing.
    9. Restricted Activities. In connection with your use of our websites or the Service, or in the course of your interactions with Xoom, a Sender, Recipient or a third party and, in addition to other restrictions in this User Agreement, you will not:
      1. Breach this User Agreement, or any other agreement between you and Xoom;

    2. General. We process transactions to India in one of the following two ways, and will always seek to process your transaction in the manner most appropriate for your transaction, based on the applicable regulations and the information we receive from you.

    We make reasonable efforts to ensure that Transactions are processed in a timely manner, but we make no representations or warranties regarding the time needed to complete processing because the Service is largely dependent on many factors outside our control.

Disputes between you and Xoom regarding the Service may be reported to Customer Service (See section 17, "Contact Information," below).
    3. Arbitration. For any claim (excluding claims for injunctive or other equitable relief) where the total amount of the award sought is less than $10,000.00 USD, the party requesting relief may elect to resolve the dispute in a cost-effective manner through binding non-appearance-based arbitration. If a party elects arbitration, that party will initiate such arbitration through an established alternative dispute resolution ("ADR") provider mutually agreed upon by the parties. The ADR provider and the parties must comply with the following rules: (i) the arbitration shall be conducted by telephone, online and/or be solely based on written submissions, with the specific manner to be chosen by the party initiating the arbitration; (ii) the arbitration shall not involve any personal appearance by the parties or witnesses unless otherwise mutually agreed by the parties; and (iii) any judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction.
    4. Forum for Disputes. Except as otherwise agreed by the parties or as described in section 14(c) above, you agree that any claim or dispute you may have against Xoom must be resolved by a court located in San Francisco County, California. You agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of the courts located within San Francisco County, California for the purpose of litigating all such claims or disputes.
    5. Improperly Filed Litigation. All claims you bring against Xoom must be resolved in accordance with section 14 of this Agreement.

Should you file a claim contrary to section 14, Xoom may recover attorneys' fees and costs (including in-house attorneys and paralegals) up to $1,000.00 USD from you, provided that Xoom has notified you in writing of the improperly filed claim, and you have failed to promptly withdraw the claim.
