Stripe Checkout User Terms of Service
Last updated: March 29, 2021
The Stripe Checkout service (“Stripe Checkout”) is technology that makes it easier for merchants on the Internet (“Merchants”) to collect payment from individuals like you. Stripe Checkout also makes it easy for you to store payment credentials, like credit cards and debit cards (“Payment Credentials”) with Stripe for use with Merchants who have chosen to use Stripe as their payment processor.
2. Using Stripe Checkout.
When you check out on the website of a Merchant that has Stripe Checkout enabled, we will ask you if you’d like us to remember you. When you allow us to remember you, Stripe will store certain identifying information, such as your email address and your mobile phone number (“Stripe Credentials”), and your Payment Credentials. Information stored as part of your Payment Credentials may include information such as your name, the account number and the expiration date, as well as associated information like your billing address and shipping address. The advantage of remembering you is that it will make your checkout quicker and easier if you come back to the same website, or to any of the other Merchants that use Stripe (a “Stripe Enabled Merchant”) – this can be especially handy when you’re on a mobile device or don’t have your credit card in front of you.
3. Stripe’s Role.
Stripe Checkout enables you to store your Payment Credentials, but it doesn’t change anything else about your relationship with the Merchant you’re paying or your bank or credit card company. Stripe will, however, use reasonable efforts to keep your Payment Credentials secure.
You are ultimately responsible for the purchases you make using Stripe Checkout. Also, the Merchant is the one responsible for providing you the goods or services that you purchase using Stripe Checkout, not Stripe. Stripe Checkout may display, or link to, the terms and policies that attach to a product or service sold by a Stripe Enabled Merchant. For example, Stripe Checkout may display, or link to, a Merchant’s policies with respect to returns, refunds, and exchanges. The content of any such policies is chosen by the Merchant, and Stripe does not control, or have any responsibility for, the Merchant’s compliance with the content of its policies and terms. If you believe that a Merchant has failed to comply with its terms or policies, or any other obligation imposed by applicable law, please contact the Merchant directly.
4. Your Location; Making Changes.
When you allow us to remember you, we will assume that you are located in the country of your billing address, if one is provided, and otherwise the country of your phone number. If this country is incorrect, or you move countries, and you wish to continue to store your Payment Credentials with us, then you must contact us for instructions on how to delete your stored information, and create a new account that is associated with the correct country.
If you want to delete your Payment Credentials, stop storing information using Stripe Checkout, or change your settings, please contact us.
5. Representations and Warranties.
By using Stripe Checkout you confirm that you are at least 18 years of age and that you will not use Stripe Checkout for any fraudulent, unlawful or abusive purpose.
Stripe Checkout, including all content, software, functions, materials, and information made available on, provided in connection with or accessible through Stripe Checkout, are provided “as is.” To the fullest extent permissible by law, Stripe), make no representation or warranty of any kind whatsoever for the services or the content, materials, information and functions made accessible by Stripe Checkout, or for any breach of security associated with the transmission of sensitive information through Stripe Checkout.

Stripe does not warrant that the functions contained in the services will be uninterrupted or error free. Stripe shall not be responsible for any service interruptions, including, but not limited to, system failures or other interruptions that may affect the receipt, processing, acceptance, completion or settlement of payment transactions, unless such service interruption has been caused by Stripe.
7. Limitations of Liability; Force Majeure.

This includes liability for death or personal injury caused by our negligence or the negligence of our employees, agents or representatives; for fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation.
