Last revised June 26, 2023
Thank you for selecting the Services offered by Intuit Inc. and/or its subsidiaries and affiliates (referred to as “Intuit”, “we”, “our”, or “us”). These Terms of Service (“Agreement”) constitute a legal agreement between you and Intuit governing the use of the Services. If you are an individual using the Services on behalf of another person, whether an individual or a company, you and such person are both bound by the terms of this Agreement. You, any other person that you represent and Authorized Users are collectively referred to as “you.”
By clicking “I Agree,” indicating acceptance electronically, or by installing, accessing or using the Services, you agree to this Agreement and establish its Effective Date. If you do not agree to this Agreement, then you may not use or access the Services.
This Agreement is comprised of the body, all exhibits to this Agreement (“Exhibits”), and all terms, rules, documentation, and policies that we make available for participating and using the Services, (a “Policy” or “Policies” which may cover all or specific Services). The terms in each Exhibit and specific Policies only apply to you if you engage in the activity or use the Services to which the Exhibit, or Policy apply. In addition, access to a specific Service may be subject to a separate commercial contract.
In case of any contradiction between the terms of this Agreement and those of any Exhibit or Policy which applies to such specific Service, the terms of such Exhibit or Policy shall prevail solely as to the provision or use of that specific Service and the subject matter of such Exhibit or Policy. The terms of any separate commercial contract established between you and Intuit for a specific Service shall prevail in case of any contradiction between its terms and those of this Agreement.
This agreement is separate from and not modified by any other Intuit agreement which may govern your use of other Intuit products and services which are not developer Services.
2. YOUR RIGHTS TO USE THE SERVICES
2.1 Use of the Services and Intellectual Property
Conditioned on your Enrollment, your ongoing compliance with this Agreement and any commercial contract which Intuit may require prior to accessing a specific Service, Intuit grants you a limited, non-exclusive, non-transferable, non-sublicensable, royalty-free, revocable right to access and use the Services, and to access, use and copy Intuit Development Content, all solely in connection with your permitted use of the Services during the Term. Such right is subject to this Agreement and solely for: (i) access and use in the Territory and solely by Authorized Users, (ii) your Developer Application, and (iii) the purposes expressly permitted in this Agreement and, if applicable, any commercial contract established between you and Intuit. Intuit reserves all title and other rights in the Services.
You understand and agree that your use, reproduction and distribution of some Intuit Development Content may be subject to separate licenses.
Other than the rights set out above, this Agreement does not grant you any implied licenses. All right, title, and interest in and to the Services and Third-Party Materials are and will remain with the respective rights holders.
If you provide any Feedback, you grant Intuit all right, title and interest in the Feedback, without any right to compensation or other obligation by Intuit.
2.2 Sandbox Environment
For any of the Services, Intuit may provide a Sandbox as an experimental test environment. The Sandbox is provided “AS IS” and may be removed, deleted or modified by Intuit at any time without any notice or liability to you.
You agree to use the Sandbox solely for your internal evaluation of the Services or testing of your Developer Application. The Sandbox will only include “mock” data that does not correspond to any person or group of persons. You may use anonymous, non-live data only and agree not to use the Sandbox for production access.
You agree to comply with all Policies which Intuit may impose on your access to the Sandbox. While you may be provided access to the Sandbox, such access does not create any representation that you will be provided access to the actual Services.
2.3 Restrictions on Use of the Services
You shall not, and shall not permit any other party to, engage in, solicit, attempt or promote any activity that:
You acknowledge that, in making Customer Data available to you, (i) neither Intuit nor any Data Provider that makes Customer Data available through the Services is a “consumer reporting agency” or a “furnisher” of information under the Fair Credit Reporting Act (“FCRA”), nor does Intuit or any Data Provider provide any “consumer report” under FCRA, and. You warrant and represent that you will not (and will not enable any third party to) use the Customer Data provided through the Services as a “consumer report” or in any way that results in Intuit or the Data Provider being deemed a “consumer reporting agency” or “furnisher” under FCRA.
2.4 Third Party Services
In connection with your use of the Services, you may be made aware of or offered services, features, products, offers, and promotions provided by third parties, and not by Intuit, such as internet-based offerings (“Third Party Services”). The inclusion of any link does not mean an affiliation, sponsorship, endorsement, approval, investigation, verification or monitoring by Intuit or its suppliers of any information contained in any third-party website. Access to any other web site is at your own risk, and you should be aware that linked web sites may contain terms and privacy policies that are different from those of Intuit and its suppliers. If you decide to use Third Party Services, you are responsible for reviewing and understanding any such terms. You authorize Intuit to use and disclose your contact information, including name and address, for the purpose of making the Third-Party Services you choose available to you.

3.2 Developer Application review
Prior to granting access to any Service or making the Developer Application available for distribution, Intuit may require a review of your business, each Developer Application, its Disclosures, and the related technical, security and privacy policies.
By submitting your Enrollment information to Intuit and by your continued use of the Services, you warrant and represent that the Developer Application, including all of your processes related to the Developer Application, and all related Disclosures, comply with Applicable Law, this Agreement, and any commercial contract established between you and Intuit. Our review of your Developer Application and our granting access to any Service for such Developer Application is based on your warranties and representations to us, and does not substitute or constitute any type of affirmation by Intuit regarding your ongoing compliance obligations.
You grant Intuit and/or its third party affiliate the right to use the Developer Application for purposes of testing and evaluating it. You agree to promptly cooperate with Intuit in any review of your business or the Developer Application and to provide true, complete and accurate information and materials for all Intuit requests regarding your Developer Application, your business, the processing of Customer Data, the information security of your technology platform, your privacy policies and practices, audits and certifications, or the performance of any of your obligations under this Agreement.
You acknowledge that Intuit may, in its sole discretion, reject or suspend your Developer Application for any reason, even if such Developer Application complies with all of the then current requirements. You understand and agree that Intuit shall have no liability for any costs, expenses, and/or damages, including any development or marketing expense and potential lost profits or business opportunities that arise out of or result from Intuit’s review, rejection, or suspension of such Developer Application or Intuit’s termination of this Agreement.
You must immediately inform Intuit in writing, and provide any additional information required by Intuit, if you:
You represent and warrant that you have all rights, including all intellectual property rights, in the Developer Applications necessary to grant the licenses to Intuit in this Agreement, and as applicable, to Customers.

19. Governing Law
California state law governs this Agreement without regard to its conflicts of laws provisions.
Most disagreements can be resolved informally and efficiently by contacting our developer support team. If you are a U.S. customer:
YOU AND INTUIT AGREE THAT, EXCEPT AS PROVIDED BELOW, ANY DISPUTE, CLAIM OR CONTROVERSY ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING IN ANY WAY TO THE SERVICES OR THIS AGREEMENT (A “CLAIM”) WILL BE DETERMINED BY BINDING ARBITRATION OR SMALL CLAIMS COURT, INSTEAD OF IN COURTS OF GENERAL JURISDICTION.
Small Claims Court. Either you or Intuit can seek to have a Claim resolved in small claims court if all the requirements of the small claims court are satisfied. Either you or Intuit may seek to have a Claim resolved in small claims court in your county of residence or the small claims court in closest proximity to your residence, and you may also bring a claim in small claims court in the Superior Court of California, County of Santa Clara.
Arbitration. Arbitration is more informal than a lawsuit in court. Arbitration uses a neutral arbitrator instead of a judge or jury, and may allow for more limited discovery than in court, and is subject to very limited review by courts. Arbitrators can award the same damages and relief that a court can award. You agree that the U.S. Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of this arbitration provision, and that you and Intuit are each waiving the right to a trial by jury or to participate in a class action. This arbitration provision shall survive termination of this Agreement and/or the termination of your Services.
Notice of Claim. If you elect to seek arbitration, you must first send to Intuit a written Notice of your Claim (“Notice of Claim”). The Notice of Claim to Intuit should be sent in care of our registered agent Corporation Service Company, 251 Little Falls Drive, Wilmington, DE 19808. The Notice of Claim should include both the mailing address and email address you would like Intuit to use to contact you. If Intuit elects to seek arbitration, it will send, by certified mail, a written Notice of Claim to your address on file. A Notice of Claim, whether sent by you or by Intuit, must (a) describe the nature and basis of the claim or dispute; and (b) set forth the specific amount of damages or other relief sought.
Commencing Arbitration or Small Claims Proceedings. You and Intuit agree that, after a Notice of Claim is sent but before either you or Intuit commence arbitration or file a claim in small claims court against the other, we will personally meet, via telephone or videoconference, in a good-faith effort to confer with each other and try to resolve informally any Claim covered by this Agreement. If we do not reach an agreement to resolve the Claim within sixty (60) days after the Notice of Claim is received, you or Intuit may commence an arbitration proceeding by filing a Demand for Arbitration or, alternatively, by filing a Claim in small claims court. If a Claim qualifies for small claims court, but a party commences an arbitration proceeding, you and Intuit agree that either party may elect instead to have the Claim resolved in small claims court, and upon written notice of a party’s election, the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) will administratively close the arbitration proceeding. Any dispute about whether a Claim qualifies for small claims court shall be resolved by that court, not by an arbitrator. In the event of any such dispute, the arbitration proceeding shall remain closed unless and until a decision by the small claims court that the Claim should proceed in arbitration. You may download or copy a form of notice and a form to initiate arbitration at www.adr.org or by calling 1-800-778-7879. The arbitration will be conducted by the AAA before a single AAA arbitrator under the AAA’s rules, which are available at www.adr.org or by calling 1-800-778-7879, except as modified by this Agreement. Unless Intuit and you agree otherwise, any arbitration hearings will take place in the county (or parish) of either your residence or of the mailing address you provided in your Notice of Claim.
Arbitration Fees and Costs. Payment of all filing, administration and arbitrator fees will be governed by the AAA Rules. You are required to pay AAA’s initial filing fee, but Intuit will reimburse you for this filing fee at the conclusion of the arbitration to the extent it exceeds the fee for filing a complaint in a federal or state court in your county of residence or in Santa Clara County, California. If the arbitrator finds that either the substance of your Claim or the relief sought in your Demand for Arbitration was frivolous or was brought for an improper purpose (as measured by the standards set forth in Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 11(b)), then the payment of all fees will be governed by the AAA Rules and Intuit will not reimburse your initial filing fee. The parties agree that the AAA has discretion to modify the amount or timing of any administrative or arbitration fees due under the AAA Rules where it deems appropriate, provided that such modification does not increase the AAA fees to you or Intuit, and you and Intuit waive any objection to such fee modification.
Class Action Waiver. YOU AND INTUIT AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN YOUR OR ITS INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. Further, if you have elected arbitration, unless both you and Intuit agree otherwise, the arbitrator may not consolidate any other person’s Claims with your Claims and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding. If Intuit believes that any Claim you have filed in arbitration or in court is inconsistent with the limitations in this Section 14(i), then you agree that Intuit may seek an order from a court determining whether your Claim is within the scope of the Class Action Waiver. If this Class Action Waiver is found to be unenforceable, then the entirety of this Section shall be null and void.
21. No third party beneficiaries
