Those who access or use the Service from other jurisdictions do so at their own volition and are entirely responsible for compliance with all applicable laws and regulations, including but not limited to export and import regulations. You may not use the Service if, and you represent and warrant that you will not use the Service if, you are a resident of a country embargoed by the United States or that has been designated by the United States government as a “terrorist supporting” country, or you are a foreign person or entity blocked or denied by the United States government. Unless otherwise explicitly stated, all materials found on the Service are solely directed to individuals, companies, or other entities located in the United States.
2. What NALA’s Service does and a Description of Banking Products
a. Transfer Services
The Service provides Users with the ability to access Bank Products and to instruct Bank to conduct a transaction in which you (the “Sender”) send (a “Transfer”) a designated amount of funds from your Banking Account through Bank and other third-party payout and payment service providers (each, a “Payout Provider”) to your account located at another institution, a designated individual or to an individual’s foreign bank account or Banking Account for deposit (the “Recipient”). Transfers may not be made to all countries and in all currencies. As part of Transfers, you may convert currencies, to the extent supported by the Service. Currencies supported for Transfer are listed in the Service. For each Transfer that you make, in addition to a Transfer fee that will be disclosed to you prior to you authorizing the Transfer, we may charge you a fee when a Transfer is not paid out in U.S. Dollars. The foreign currency exchange rate will be disclosed to you prior to your authorizing a Transfer. The “Transfer Amount” is the amount of the Transfer, excluding the Transfer fee. The Transfer Amount and the Transfer fee (and transfer taxes, if any) will be deducted from your Banking Account. The Transfer Amount does not include any local taxes or fees charged by Recipient’s financial institution, and, as such, may be less than what is disclosed to you. All Transfer fees are made free and clear of, and without any deduction or withholding for and on account of, any local taxes, duties or other deductions. Any such deduction or withholding, if required by the laws of any country are your sole responsibility. We may provide estimates of the local taxes and other fees that may be charged for a Transfer, but the exact amount of the local taxes and other fees are determined by the jurisdiction in which funds are received.
We or Bank reserves the right at any time, and from time to time, to modify or discontinue any Transfer (or any part thereof) with or without notice. Your Transfer may be delayed due to business hours, systems availability and currency availability. You agree that you will only use the Transfer for your or your Recipient’s personal reasons. If we or Bank reasonably suspect or discover you are using the Transfer to send a transfer to or on behalf of a Recipient which is a business or entity, we or Bank may, in our sole respective discretion, cancel your Transfer. You agree that neither we nor Bank are liable for your use of the Transfer for commercial purposes. We or Bank may, without notice (except as required by law) and without liability to you, delay, cancel, refuse to honor any instruction for a Transfer, stop or reverse any Transfer, or otherwise suspend or terminate access to, or refuse to provide, any Services or Transfer at any time in its sole discretion.
All money movement is conducted by Bank or Payout Providers. We operate software that allows you to access services of Bank. We act as agent of Bank or its agent and will provide you Regulation E disclosures under the remittance transfer rules as such.
(i) How to Initiate a Transfer:
To initiate a Transfer, you must enter the name of the Recipient, the desired Transfer Amount and such other information as may be required. For each Transfer you initiate, you authorize Bank or any Payout Provider (or any party authorized by Bank or Payout Provider) to debit your Banking Account or linked account for the Transfer Amount, plus any applicable fees, including the Transfer fee, and applicable taxes. By requesting a Transfer, you verify that this information is correct and intentional to the best of your knowledge, and authorize Bank and any Payout Provider to initiate this transfer on your behalf, including the extraction of funds from your provided method of payment.
The funds for the Transfer must be available in the Banking Account from which the Transfer is made. There is no obligation to effect a Transfer unless sufficient funds are available in your Banking Account and neither we nor any Payout Provider will have any liability if a Transfer is not effected as a result of the unavailability of sufficient funds. You are responsible to us and Payout Provider if your Transfer is completes in accordance with your request and, for any reason, any such party is unable to collect the funds from your Banking Account.
A currency exchange rate may be applied to Transfers that payout in currencies other than U.S. Dollars. U.S. Dollars will be converted to other currencies at an exchange rate set by us (the “Exchange Rate”). The Exchange Rate to be used for your Transfer will be reflected in the pre-payment disclosure and the Receipt. The Exchange Rate will be rounded to a consistent number of decimal places for each currency pursuant to applicable laws and regulations. Any difference in the Exchange Rate disclosed to you and the exchange rate received will be kept by us (and our Payment Provider in some cases), in addition to any other fees we may charge you.
(ii) Right to Cancel
If you wish to withdraw your consent to complete this transaction at any time prior to submission, pressing “Cancel” will effectively cancel your transaction. You may cancel a Transfer within 30 minutes of authorizing your Transfer, unless the funds have already been paid out to the Recipient. Your Banking Account will be credited for the amount debited (including any fees, and taxes if not prohibited by law) in connection with the cancelation of a Transfer. Generally, your recipient is paid instantly through the Mobile Application; accordingly, once you originate a transfer, you may be unable to stop or change it.
Following your initiation of and payment for the Transfer, we will provide you with a post-transaction communication (“Receipt”) which will serve as your record of the Transfer. Records of all Transfers that you initiate will be posted and updated in your Digital Wallet, which can be accessed through your Mobile Application. You agree to regularly check for information related to your Transfers through your Mobile Application, and you agree to contact us immediately if you have any questions or issues regarding any Transfer.
Either we and/or Bank may from time to time set limits on the value of transfers you may send (both individually and cumulatively ), as well as the value of transfers any recipient may receive. Either we and/or Bank may delay payment of your transfer to allow Either we and/or Bank to determine that your remittance complies with applicable laws and these Terms. NALA has the right, without notice to you, to refuse to accept or pay any transfer request that you submit through us that we determine in our sole discretion may violate applicable law, regulation or our policies, including laws, regulations and policies intended to help detect and prevent money-laundering, terrorist financing, fraud, and other abuses of financial services; if we agree to process a transfer request and then determine that it may violate any such law, regulation or policy, we may hold the transfer request until such time that the matter is resolved. For security reasons, we may impose additional deposit request and withdrawal request limits. These limits are designed to be flexible as to protect the security and integrity of the Service and other users. These limitations may be based on confidential fraud and risk criteria essential to our management of risk and the protection of you and the integrity of the service or system and may be modified at our sole discretion without advance notice.
(v) Information Provided to NALA
You represent and warrant that all information you enter into the Mobile Application or otherwise provide to NALA is true and complete, including information about you, your payments, account information, and your Recipient. When processing a transfer request, NALA will rely on the registration information and transfer information that you provide, including your phone number. By providing your phone number, you voluntarily consent and opt-in to receive text messages from NALA. These messages will exclusively be for the purpose of verifying your account and delivering two-factor authentication (2FA) codes to bolster the security of your NALA account. Where NALA seeks to send marketing messages, fresh express consent will be sought from you first. Please be aware that standard message and data rates may apply, as determined by your mobile service provider. The frequency of these messages may vary based on the specific requirements of your account and the services provided by NALA.
You acknowledge that any errors in the information, including without limitation misidentification of your Recipient, incorrect or inconsistent account names, numbers, or amounts, are your responsibility and that NALA shall have no liability for executing a transfer based upon the inaccurate or incomplete information you provided or entered. You agree that NALA may request your mobile carrier to help verify your identity, including without limitation your name, billing and email address, and location. NALA reserves the right to close, suspend, or limit access to your Account and/or the Service in the event we are unable to obtain or verify your identity.
If NALA is unable to complete processing of the transfer request to your Recipient because you provided incorrect information about the Recipient, such as an incorrect telephone number, an incorrect or misspelled name, the wrong bank or bank account or any other misinformation, you will be liable for all costs, fees, expenses and losses that NALA incurs in returning the transfer to you, such as processing costs, losses arising due to exchange rate fluctuations and third party service charges.
If your Banking Account was charged for a transfer which you did not authorize, you will be refunded the amount of the transfer promptly and at the latest by the end of the business day following the day on which we were notified of or otherwise became aware of the unauthorized transfer. However, in case there are reasonable indications of a fraudulent activity by you, we will have no obligation to refund any applicable transfers.
NALA shall not be liable to you for any loss resulting from NALA's inability to cancel or refund a transfer request. If NALA refunds a transfer to you, the refund may be paid by a credit to your Account. Such credits are applicable only toward future use of the Service and are not convertible into cash or any type of refund. The remedies set forth in this Section are NALA’s sole and exclusive liabilities and your sole and exclusive remedies for any payment errors relating to the Service.

Except as expressly provided in these Terms, the rights and remedies provided under these Terms are in addition to, and not exclusive of, any rights or remedies provided by law. Each party acknowledges that (i) these Terms contain the whole agreement between the parties relating to the subject matter hereof and supersede all prior agreements, arrangements and understandings between the parties relating to that subject matter; (ii) in entering into these Terms, it does not rely on any statement, representation, assurance or warranty (whether it was made negligently or innocently) of any person (whether a party to these Terms or not) (“Representation”) other than as expressly set out in this Agreement; and (iii) the only rights and remedies available to it arising out of or in connection with a Representation shall be for breach of contract. If any provision or part-provision of this Agreement is or becomes invalid, illegal or unenforceable, it shall be deemed deleted, but that shall not affect the validity and enforceability of the rest of these Terms. A person who is not a party to these Terms shall not have any rights under the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 to enforce any term of these Terms, but this does not affect any right or remedy of a third party which exists, or is available, apart from that Act. Nothing in this Agreement is intended to, or shall be deemed to, establish any partnership or joint venture. Each party confirms it is acting on its own behalf and not for the benefit of any other person. In particular, you agree not to use the NALA app or Service on behalf of, or as agent of, any other person.
13. Governing Law.
13.1 You agree that: (i) the Service shall be deemed solely based in New York; and (ii) the Service shall be deemed a passive one that does not give rise to personal jurisdiction over us, either specific or general, in jurisdictions other than New York. These Terms shall be governed by the internal substantive laws of the State of New York, without respect to its conflict of laws principles. The parties acknowledge that these Terms evidence a transaction involving interstate commerce. Notwithstanding the preceding sentences with respect to the substantive law, the Federal Arbitration Act (9 U.S.C. §§ 1-16) (“FAA”) governs the interpretation and enforcement of the Arbitration Agreement in Section 13 and preempts all state laws to the fullest extent permitted by law. If the FAA is found to not apply to any issue that arises from or relates to the Arbitration Agreement, then that issue shall be resolved under and governed by the law of your state of residence. The application of the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods is expressly excluded. You agree to submit to the exclusive personal jurisdiction of the federal and state courts located in New York for any actions for which we retain the right to seek injunctive or other equitable relief in a court of competent jurisdiction to prevent the actual or threatened infringement, misappropriation or violation of a our copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets, patents, or other intellectual property or proprietary rights, as set forth in the Arbitration provision below, including any provisional relief required to prevent irreparable harm. You agree that New York is the proper and exclusive forum for any appeals of an arbitration award or for trial court proceedings in the event that the arbitration provision below is found to be unenforceable.
13.2 Arbitration. READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY BECAUSE IT REQUIRES THE PARTIES TO ARBITRATE THEIR DISPUTES AND LIMITS THE MANNER IN WHICH YOU CAN SEEK RELIEF FROM NALA. This Section 13.2 (the “Arbitration Agreement”) applies to and governs any dispute, controversy, or claim between you and NALA that arises out of or relates to, directly or indirectly: (i) these Terms, including the formation, existence, breach, termination, enforcement, interpretation, validity, or enforceability thereof; (ii) access to or use of the Service, including receipt of any advertising or marketing communications; (iii) any transactions through, by, or using the Service; or (iv) any other aspect of your relationship or transactions with NALA, directly or indirectly, as a consumer (“Claim” or collectively, “Claims”). The Arbitration Agreement shall apply, without limitation, to all Claims that arose or were asserted before or after your agreement to these Terms.
If you are a new NALA user, you can reject and opt-out of this Arbitration Agreement within 30 days of accepting these Terms by emailing NALA at email@example.com with your first and last name and stating your intent to opt-out of the Arbitration Agreement. Note that opting out of this Arbitration Agreement does not affect any other part of these Terms, including the provisions regarding controlling law or in which courts any disputes must be brought.
For any Claim, you agree to first contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and attempt to resolve the dispute with us informally. In the unlikely event that NALA has not been able to resolve a Claim after sixty (60) days, we each agree to resolve any Claim exclusively through binding arbitration by AAA before a single arbitrator (the “Arbitrator”), under the Expedited Procedures then in effect for AAA (the “Rules”), except as provided herein. In the event of any conflict between the Rules and this Arbitration Agreement, this Arbitration Agreement shall control. AAA may be contacted at www.adr.org, where the Rules are also available. The arbitration will be conducted in the U.S. county where you live or New York, unless you and NALA agree otherwise. If you are using the Service for commercial purposes, each party will be responsible for paying any AAA filing, administrative and arbitrator fees in accordance with AAA rules, and the award rendered by the arbitrator shall include costs of arbitration, reasonable attorneys’ fees and reasonable costs for expert and other witnesses. If you are an individual using the Service for non-commercial purposes: (i) AAA may require you to pay a fee for the initiation of your case, unless you apply for and successfully obtain a fee waiver from AAA; (ii) the award rendered by the arbitrator may include your costs of arbitration, your reasonable attorney’s fees, and your reasonable costs for expert and other witnesses; and (iii) you may sue in a small claims court of competent jurisdiction without first engaging in arbitration, but this does not absolve you of your commitment to engage in the informal dispute resolution process. Any judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction. You and NALA agree that the Arbitrator, and not any federal, state, or local court or agency, shall have exclusive authority to resolve any disputes relating to the interpretation, applicability, enforceability or formation of this Arbitration Agreement, including any claim that all or any part of this Arbitration Agreement is void or voidable. The Arbitrator shall also be responsible for determining all threshold arbitrability issues, including issues relating to whether these Terms, any provision of these Terms, is unconscionable or illusory and any defense to arbitration, including waiver, delay, laches, unconscionability, or estoppel.
Nothing in this Section shall be deemed as: preventing NALA from seeking injunctive or other equitable relief from the courts as necessary to prevent the actual or threatened infringement, misappropriation, or violation of our data security, intellectual property rights or other proprietary rights; or preventing you from asserting claims in small claims court, if your claims qualify and so long as the matter remains in such court and advances on only an individual (non-class, non-representative) basis.
If this Arbitration Agreement is found to be void, unenforceable, or unlawful, in whole or in part, the void, unenforceable, or unlawful provision, in whole or in part, shall be severed. Severance of the void, unenforceable, or unlawful provision, in whole or in part, shall have no impact on the remaining provisions of the Arbitration Agreement, which shall remain in force, or the parties’ ability to compel arbitration of any remaining claims on an individual basis pursuant to the Arbitration Agreement. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if the Class Action/Jury Trial Waiver is found to be void, unenforceable, or unlawful, in whole or in part, because it would prevent you from seeking public injunctive relief, then any dispute regarding the entitlement to such relief (and only that relief) must be severed from arbitration and may be litigated in a civil court of competent jurisdiction. All other claims for relief subject to arbitration under this Arbitration Agreement shall be arbitrated under its terms, and the parties agree that litigation of any dispute regarding the entitlement to public injunctive relief shall be stayed pending the outcome of any individual claims in arbitration.
13.3 Class Action/Jury Trial Waiver. WITH RESPECT TO ALL PERSONS AND ENTITIES, REGARDLESS OF WHETHER THEY HAVE OBTAINED OR USED THE SERVICE FOR PERSONAL, COMMERCIAL OR OTHER PURPOSES, ALL CLAIMS MUST BE BROUGHT IN THE PARTIES’ INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS ACTION, COLLECTIVE ACTION, PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL ACTION OR OTHER REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. THIS WAIVER APPLIES TO CLASS ARBITRATION, AND, UNLESS WE AGREE OTHERWISE, THE ARBITRATOR MAY NOT CONSOLIDATE MORE THAN ONE PERSON’S CLAIMS. YOU AND NALA AGREE THAT THE ARBITRATOR MAY AWARD RELIEF ONLY TO AN INDIVIDUAL CLAIMANT AND ONLY TO THE EXTENT NECESSARY TO PROVIDE RELIEF ON YOUR INDIVIDUAL CLAIM(S). ANY RELIEF AWARDED MAY NOT AFFECT OTHER NALA USERS. YOU AND NALA FURTHER AGREE THAT, BY ENTERING INTO THESE TERMS, YOU AND NALA ARE EACH WAIVING THE RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY OR TO BRING, JOIN, OR PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION, COLLECTIVE ACTION, PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL ACTION, OR OTHER REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING OF ANY KIND AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER.
