The Service allows you to make payments to participating schools and school districts (collectively “Schools”) as set forth in this Agreement. This Agreement affects your rights and should be read carefully. This agreement was last modified on August 28th, 2020. In this Agreement, “you” or “your” means any person or entity using or accessing the Service.

If you do not agree to be bound by these terms and conditions, you may not use or access the Service.


USE OF SERVICE

  1. Authorization to use the Service is granted to parents and legal guardians of students and their designees (“Authorized Users”) who want to access information about and make payments to the School accounts of such students using the Service. The Service is not available to minors (under 18), persons who are suspended from the Service, or persons who in our sole discretion present an unacceptable level of credit risk.

  2. Authorized Users may use the Service to view School account information and make payments as allowed by this Agreement.

  3. By using the Service, Authorized Users authorize OSMS, its designees, and the applicable student's School to share information in connection with operation of the Service. You warrant that information you provide, and your provision of such information does not violate the rights of any third party or any agreement or obligation you have.

  4. Your use and access of the Website (including submission of information and use of the Service) shall not: (i) be false, inaccurate or misleading; (ii) be fraudulent; (iii) violate the terms of your agreement with your bank or credit card or debit card issuer (“Issuer”) (including, without limitation, providing yourself a cash advance or helping others to do so), (iv) violate any law, statute, ordinance, contract or regulation (including, but not limited to, those governing financial services, consumer protection, unfair competition, antidiscrimination, or false advertising); (v) be defamatory, trade libelous, unlawfully threatening or unlawfully harassing; (vi) be obscene or contain child pornography; (vii) use or contain any malware, including viruses, Trojan horses, worms, bot nets or other computer code that may damage, interfere with, intercept or expropriate any system, data, or personal information; or (viii) create liability for us or cause us to lose (in whole or in part) the services of our ISPs or other suppliers. You agree that you will not use any device, software, or routine to bypass any security feature, or to interfere or attempt to interfere with the proper working of the Service or any activity conducted on the Website. You agree that you will not take any action that imposes an unreasonable or disproportionately large load on our Service infrastructure. If you use or attempt to use the Service for purposes other than as allowed in this Agreement, including but not limited to tampering, hacking, modifying or otherwise corrupting the security or functionality of the Service, your authorization to use the Service will be terminated and you will be subject to damages and other penalties, including criminal prosecution where available.

  5. OSMS reserves the right at any time to modify or discontinue, temporarily or permanently, the Service, the Website or any part thereof with or without notice. You agree that OSMS will not be liable to you or any third party for any modification, suspension or discontinuance of the site.

PAYMENTS TO SCHOOLS

  1. You may make payments to Schools by using a credit card we accept. The student's School receives the proceeds of all payments less any service fees associated with the transaction. Use of such payments at or by your student's School is governed exclusively by your agreement or arrangement with the School, and we are not responsible for the School's handling of such payments after the School receives the proceeds.

  2. Payments will be processed and made available for your student's use in accordance with the agreement between OSMS and the School. A number of factors, several of which are outside of our control, contribute to when the School receives the funds, including possible delays in the banking system or communications networks. We make no representations or warranties regarding the amount of time needed to complete processing. If you have any questions regarding the processing of payments, please contact us.

  3. You agree to pay for the Service and for the product or service offered by your student’s School in accordance with the agreement between you and your Issuer and this Agreement. You agree that we are only a provider of the Service, and we are not a bank or financial institution. We are not a trustee, escrow agent, or fiduciary, and we do not owe you any duty other than to provide the Service according to the terms and conditions of this Agreement. If we hold any of your funds, we will not owe you any interest or income therefrom, which we may retain for our benefit.

FEES

The Service is provided by only OSMS and its affiliates. The Schools that accept payments through the Service are customers of OSMS, and except for the agreements to provide the Service, OSMS does not have any legal affiliation with such Schools. OSMS does not share the fees it earns for providing the Service with the Schools that accept payments through the Service.

You agree to pay for the cost of the goods or services purchased as well as any additional service and handling fees. All payments collected through the Website are processed by OSMS Inc. and remitted to a School pursuant to the terms of a service agreement between OSMS and the applicable School. Any School district accepting payments through the Service may at its own discretion elect to have a handling fee added to its payments to cover the cost of using the Service. To avoid paying the handling fee, you should contact your student’s School to inquire about any available in person payment options.


REFUNDS AND RETURNS

OSMS’s only role in all transactions made in connection with the Service is processing payments and remitting the proceeds to the applicable School. OSMS has absolutely no responsibility for the goods and services offered or provided by the Schools that accept payments through the Service. OSMS will not under any circumstances provide refunds or accept returns on behalf of Schools. If you or the student are not satisfied with any good or service purchased with a payment through the Service, your exclusive remedy is to resolve the issue with the student's School. You agree to hold us and our designees, employees, agents, and affiliates harmless for all claims, costs, damages and expenses arising out of or related to purchases of goods or services through the Service. Whether to issue a refund or accept a return, and deciding the method of any such refund, is determined solely by the applicable School, and you agree to not seek any refunds from or attempt to return any goods to OSMS.


REQUIREMENTS

The Service may be accessed via the Internet. You are solely responsible for the equipment, software, and communication services needed to access the Internet.
