T&C For Merchant Partners
Global Play Network – Terms & Conditions – Merchant Partner
Global Play Network, Inc is a company with registered address 31236 Meadowview Square, Delmar, DE 19940 (“GPN”, “we”, “our”, “ours”, “us”). The Terms & Conditions (the “Terms”) apply to any visitor or user (“you”, “your”, “yours”) of the GPN website, tanjag1.sg-host.com (the “Website”), the GPN various software applications such as the mobile application or any other service or communication of GPN (the “Services”, which include the “Website”). The conditions within the Terms that apply exclusively to Merchant Partner customers of our Services depend on the eligibility and registration of visitors or users to obtain a Merchant Partner account with us, after which such visitors or users become Merchant Partners (singularly, a “Merchant Partner”) of the Services. All of the Terms that apply to visitors or users also apply to all Merchant Partners, and accordingly any reference to a “Merchant Partner” is also a reference to “you”. Upon accessing or using any of the Services, you agree to be bound by the Terms, and if you do not agree with the Terms, then you must immediately cease using the Services. If you continue to use the Services, bear in mind that you continue to be engaged in a legally binding contract between you and GPN.
GPN runs its Services to benefit its primary users, which include Consumers and Merchant Partners, and the spirit of the Services is that “Global Play Network facilitates the Consumer to Merchant Partner experience by making the entry process to Member Locations of Merchant Partners more streamlined, flexible, and affordable.” By agreeing with the Terms, you acknowledge and agree that GPN provides its Services as a facilitator of services provided by Merchant Partners and Gift Card providers and not any other service except as specified in the Terms.
Disputes that cannot be resolved directly between you and GPN under the Terms will be handled via arbitration as described in Clause 13.1, which you are expected to review. Should you not agree with Clause 13.1, then as stated in the initial paragraph, you must immediately cease using the Services.
