- The Legal Relationship between You and Invoice.com.
2.1 Appointed Agent. Invoice.com acts as a facilitator
to help you accept payments from your customers. We act as
your agent based upon your direction and your requests to use our Services that
require us to perform tasks on your behalf. You acknowledge that (i) Invoice.com
is not a bank and the Service is
an invoice presentment service rather than a banking service, and (ii) Invoice.com
is not acting as a trustee, fiduciary or escrow with respect to your funds, but is
acting only as a facilitator.
If you intend to accept on-line
payments/credit card transactions for your invoices, you will be receiving services
provided by a third party "Payment Processor", and the terms
of the Payment Processors user agreement and privacy policies will govern your rights,
obligations and liabilities with respect to such transactions.
2.2 Internet Service Provider. Invoice.com acts as an Internet
service provider by creating, hosting, maintaining and providing our Service to
you via the Internet. We do not have any control over the products or services
that are paid for with our Service. We cannot ensure that the customer you are
dealing with will actually complete the transaction.
2.3 Identity Authentication. We use many techniques to
identify our users when they register on our site. Verification of Users is only
an indication of increased likelihood that a User's identity is correct. You
authorize Invoice.com, directly or through third parties, to make any inquiries we
consider necessary to validate your registration. This may include ordering a
credit report and performing other credit checks or verifying the information
you provide against third party databases. However, because user verification on
the Internet is difficult, Invoice.com cannot and does not guarantee any user's

OUR SUPPLIERS BE LIABLE FOR LOST PROFITS OR ANY SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL OR
CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES ARISING OUT OF OR IN CONNECTION WITH OUR WEB SITE, LOSS OF

do not allow the exclusion of limitation of incidental or consequential damages
so the above limitation or exclusion may not apply to you.
OUR LIABILITY, AND THE LIABILITY OF OUR SUBSIDIARIES, EMPLOYEES AND
SUPPLIERS, TO YOU OR ANY THIRD PARTIES IN ANY CIRCUMSTANCE IS LIMITED TO THE
ACTUAL AMOUNT OF DIRECT DAMAGES.

subsidiaries, affiliates, officers, directors and employees harmless from any
