Payment Processing Terms.

We use payment platforms provided by globally accepted third-party payment processors.  Accordingly, the processing of payments will be subject to the fees, terms, conditions and privacy policies of such payment processors.  ESL is not responsible for any and all errors, fees and currency conversions fees by the payment processors.

Such third-party payment transaction processors have enacted their own terms of use, user agreements and privacy policies, which will govern their provision of services to you in respect to the information we are required to provide to them for your purchase-related transactions.  For these providers, we recommend that you read their privacy policies so you can understand the manner in which your personal information will be handled by these providers.

If you elect to use a direct payment gateway in order to complete your purchase, then the third-party payment processors will collect and store credit card data.  Your purchase transaction data will only be stored only as long as it results necessary to complete your transaction with us.  After such an order or transaction is complete, your purchase transaction information will be deleted.

You must provide us with valid and current billing information.  Except as expressly set forth herein, all payment charges are final and non-cancelable.  If we detect any chargeback or if any payment is not received by us or our payment processors for any reason, you will promptly pay us any and all amounts due to us upon notice.  Any failure or inability by us to process any payment hereunder does not relieve you from your payment obligations.

A chargeback is typically caused when a customer disputes a charge that appears on their bank or payment processing statement.  A charge-back may result in the reversal of a transaction, with the amount charged back to you.  You can be assessed charge-backs for: (i) customer disputes; (ii) unauthorized or improperly authorized transactions; (iii) transactions that do not comply with payment processor network rules or are allegedly unlawful or suspicious; or (iv) any reversals for any reason by our payment processor or the institutions handling the transaction.

When a chargeback is issued, you are immediately liable to ESL for the full amount of payment of the chargeback, plus any associated fees, fines, expenses or penalties (including those assessed by our payment processor or the financial institutions handling the transaction).  Accordingly, you hereby represent and warrant that you expressly appoint ESL as your agent, with full power to ESL over these amounts by debiting your account or setting off any amounts owed to you by us.
