In exchange for gaining access to the Services, you are consenting to receive all notices and communications from us electronically.
THIS AGREEMENT CONTAINS AN AGREEMENT TO ARBITRATE ALL CLAIMS AND CONTAINS IMPORTANT DISCLAIMERS OF WARRANTIES, LIMITATIONS ON LIABILITY AND WAIVERS. Please read the entire Platform Agreement, but please read all capitalized provisions carefully as they contain important disclaimers and limitations.
We reserve the right to amend this Platform Agreement or impose additional obligations or restrictions on you at any time.

Notwithstanding the foregoing, by continuing to use the Services, you agree to be bound by such amendments or additional obligations or restrictions. The date on the top of this page shows when the Platform Agreement was last updated.
The products and services (the “Services”) consist of a corporate card for use for corporate and business expenses (a “Rain Card”) by authorized users of the Company and include the ability to add authorized users for the Rain Card(s), view spending, set limits, and remit repayment. The Services may only be used by legal entities or businesses and their authorized users.
The Services or the issuance of the Rain Card may be offered by a subsidiary or affiliate of Rain, or by one or more of our banking partners (“Banking Partners”) or other third party service providers (“Third Party Providers”) with whom we have contracted. As a condition to your use of the Services, you may also be required to agree to additional terms and conditions related to the Services with us or such banking or other partners.
Opening Your Rain Account
We, our Banking Partners, or Third Party Providers may (1) rely on the accuracy of all such Company Information and Personal Information when opening, maintaining and using your Rain Account; (2) approve or deny your application(s) or grant you provisional access to the Services; (3) deny, interrupt, suspend, or terminate your access to your Rain Account for any reason, with or without prior notice to you, including where required Company Information or Personal Information is incomplete, inaccurate or out of date. You represent and warrant that you will keep all such Company Information and Personal Information current, complete and accurate in your Rain Account whether we provide you with full or provisional access, by contacting Rain and providing any updated Company Information or Personal Information. In setting up your Rain Account with us, you agree that you will provide true and accurate information. If any of the information you previously provided has changed, you agree to update Rain with your current information as soon as practicable.
Your Linked Wallet
When opening your Rain Account, you, or an authorized employee or designee on your behalf, will also be required to connect at least one Linked Wallet when submitting your application. A “Linked Wallet” will be a digital asset wallet that will allow you, or an authorized employee or designee on your behalf, to store collateral in the form of digital assets for your use of a Rain Card. You represent and warrant that the Linked Wallet will be exclusively owned by, or exclusively controlled by, the Company, an employee of the Company, or an authorized designee of the Company. You give us consent to review and diligence the Linked Wallet, including through the use of third parties. We reserve the right to block or reject any Linked Wallet if it does not pass our diligence process. If we do not approve a Linked Wallet, you may not be able to open a Rain Account.
We reserve the right to decline you for an account or to terminate your Rain Account for any reasons permitted by applicable law including if you violate this Platform Agreement or any other agreements you may have with us or our partners, if you provide inaccurate or incomplete information to use as part of the application to open a Rain Account, or if we are unable to verify your identity or approve your Linked Wallet.
Once your account has been set up, you may add one or more additional users who can log in with digital asset wallets in addition to your primary Linked Wallet. We reserve the right to cap the number of additional wallets (“Additional Wallets”) that you may add to your account or deny any such additional wallets. You give us consent to review and diligence any Additional Wallet, including through the use of third parties. We reserve the right to block or reject any Additional Wallet if it does not pass our diligence process. Ultimately, you are responsible for any activity associated with your Linked Wallet or Additional Wallets. You will promptly notify us if you become aware of any unauthorized access or use of your Linked Wallet or Additional Wallets. You represent and warrant that any Additional Wallet(s) will be exclusively owned by, or exclusively controlled by, the Company, an employee of the Company, or an authorized designee of the Company.
Company Administrators; Company Users
You must authorize one or more individual administrators (the “Company Administrators”) to use and manage your Rain Account. Such Company Administrator may add, manage, and delete users for use of the Rain Card on your behalf (the “Company Users”) and carry out other functions as permitted by us. You understand that the Company Administrator will also have access to Company Information and Personal Information and may carry out tasks such as requesting new cards, repayment, and requesting spending limits. You are responsible for any action or inaction by the Company Administrators when such Company Administrator is using the Rain Account.
In the event of a dispute regarding who is authorized to act on behalf of the Company in connection with a Rain Account, you agree that Rain is not obligated to adjudicate any such dispute and may continue to honor instructions from any designated Company Administrator or suspend the Rain Account or limit use of the Services unless and until the dispute is resolved, in Rain’s sole discretion.
A Company Administrator will also be considered a Company User. Each Company User will need to agree to the User Terms and any other agreement required by our Banking Partners or Third Party Providers before such individuals can access the Rain Account or use a Rain Card.

This Platform Agreement will be interpreted in accordance with the laws of the State of Delaware without regard to conflict-of-law provisions. Judicial proceedings (other than small claims actions) that are excluded from the Arbitration section below must be brought in state or federal court in Delaware, unless we both agree to some other location, and you hereby consent to the venue and personal jurisdiction of such court.
PLEASE READ THIS "BINDING ARBITRATION" PROVISION VERY CAREFULLY. IT LIMITS YOUR RIGHTS IN THE EVENT OF A DISPUTE BETWEEN YOU AND RAIN.
You and Rain agree that any and all past, present and future Disputes shall be determined by arbitration, unless your Dispute is subject to an exception to this agreement to arbitrate set forth below. You and Rain further agree that any arbitration pursuant to this section shall not proceed as a class, group or representative action. The award of the arbitrator may be entered in any court having jurisdiction.
Before filing a claim against Rain, you agree to try to resolve the Dispute informally by notice to Rain of the actual or potential Dispute. Similarly, Rain will provide notice to you of any actual or potential Dispute to endeavor to resolve any claim we may possess informally before taking any formal action. The party that provides the notice of the actual or potential Dispute (the "Notifying Party") will include in that notice (a "Notice of Dispute") the name of Company, the Notifying Party's contact information for any communications relating to such Dispute, and sufficient details regarding such Dispute to enable the other party (the "Notified Party") to understand the basis of and evaluate the concerns raised. If the Notified Party responds within ten (10) business days after receiving the Notice of Dispute that it is ready and willing to engage in good faith discussions in an effort to resolve the Dispute informally, then each party shall promptly participate in such discussions in good faith.
If, notwithstanding the Notifying Party's compliance with all of its obligations under the preceding paragraph, a Dispute is not resolved within 30 days after the Notice of Dispute is sent (or if the Notified Party fails to respond to the Notice of Dispute within ten (10) business days), the Notifying Party may initiate an arbitration proceeding as described below. If either party purports to initiate arbitration without first providing a Notice of Dispute and otherwise complying with all of its obligations under the preceding paragraph, then, notwithstanding any other provision of this Agreement, the arbitrator(s) will promptly dismiss the claim with prejudice and will award the other party all of its costs and expenses (including, without limitation, reasonable attorneys' fees) incurred in connection with such Dispute.
You and Rain both agree to arbitrate. You and Rain each agree to resolve any Disputes that are not resolved informally as described above through final and binding arbitration as discussed herein.
You and Rain agree that the American Arbitration Association ("AAA") will administer the arbitration under its Commercial Arbitration Rules (the "Rules"). The Rules are available at www.adr.org or by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879. A party who desires to initiate arbitration must provide the other party with a written Demand for Arbitration as specified in the AAA Rules. (The AAA provides a general Demand for Arbitration.) Arbitration will proceed on an individual basis and will be handled by a sole arbitrator. The single arbitrator will be either a retired judge or an attorney licensed to practice law and will be selected by the parties from the AAA's roster of arbitrators. If the parties are unable to agree upon an arbitrator within fourteen (14) days of delivery of the Demand for Arbitration, then the AAA will appoint the arbitrator in accordance with the AAA Rules. The arbitrator(s) shall be authorized to award any remedies, including injunctive relief, that would be available to you in an individual lawsuit, subject to any effective and enforceable limitations of liability or exclusions of remedies set forth herein. Notwithstanding any language to the contrary in this paragraph, if a party seeks injunctive relief that would significantly impact other Rain users as reasonably determined by either party, the parties agree that such arbitration will proceed on an individual basis but will be handled by a panel of three (3) arbitrators. Each party shall select one arbitrator, and the two party-selected arbitrators shall select the third, who shall serve as chair of the arbitral panel. That chairperson shall be a retired judge or an attorney licensed to practice law and with experience arbitrating or mediating disputes. In the event of disagreement as to whether the threshold for a three-arbitrator panel has been met, the sole arbitrator appointed in accordance with this Section shall make that determination. If the arbitrator determines a three-person panel is appropriate, the arbitrator may -- if selected by either party or as the chair by the two party-selected arbitrators -- participate in the arbitral panel. Except as and to the extent otherwise may be required by law, the arbitration proceeding and any award shall be confidential.
You and Rain further agree that the arbitration will be held in the English language in New York, New York, or, if you so elect, all proceedings can be conducted via videoconference, telephonically or via other remote electronic means. Filing costs and administrative fees shall be paid in accordance with the AAA Rules; provided that the prevailing party will be entitled to recover its reasonable attorneys' fees, expert witness fees, and out-of-pocket costs incurred in connection with the arbitration proceeding, in addition to any other relief it may be awarded. This agreement to arbitrate shall be construed under and be subject to the Federal Arbitration Act, notwithstanding any other choice of law set out in this Agreement.
You and Rain agree that, notwithstanding anything to the contrary in the Rules, the arbitration of any Dispute shall proceed on an individual basis, and neither you nor Rain may bring a claim as a part of a class, group, collective, coordinated, consolidated or mass arbitration (each, a "Collective Arbitration"). Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, a claim to resolve any Dispute against Rain will be deemed a Collective Arbitration if (i) two (2) or more similar claims for arbitration are filed concurrently by or on behalf of one or more claimants; and (ii) counsel for the claimants are the same, share fees or coordinate across the arbitrations. "Concurrently" for purposes of this provision means that both arbitrations are pending (filed but not yet resolved) at the same time.
TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, NEITHER YOU NOR RAIN SHALL BE ENTITLED TO CONSOLIDATE, JOIN OR COORDINATE DISPUTES BY OR AGAINST OTHER INDIVIDUALS OR ENTITIES, OR ARBITRATE OR LITIGATE ANY DISPUTE IN A REPRESENTATIVE CAPACITY, INCLUDING AS A REPRESENTATIVE MEMBER OF A CLASS OR IN A PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL CAPACITY. IN CONNECTION WITH ANY DISPUTE, ANY AND ALL SUCH RIGHTS ARE HEREBY EXPRESSLY AND UNCONDITIONALLY WAIVED. Without limiting the foregoing, any challenge to the validity of this paragraph shall be determined exclusively by the arbitrator.
Notwithstanding your and Rain’s agreement to arbitrate Disputes, You and Rain retain the right to bring an individual action in small claims court.
Except as otherwise required by applicable law or provided in this Agreement, in the event that the agreement to arbitrate is found not to apply to you or your Dispute, you and Rain agree that any judicial proceeding may only be brought in a court of competent jurisdiction in New York, New York. Both you and Rain irrevocably consent to venue and personal jurisdiction there; provided that either party may bring any action to confirm an arbitral award in any court having jurisdiction.
This agreement to arbitrate shall survive the termination or expiration of this Agreement. With the exception of the provisions of this agreement to arbitrate that prohibit Collective Arbitration, if a court decides that any part of this agreement to arbitrate is invalid or unenforceable, then the remaining portions of this agreement to arbitrate shall nevertheless remain valid and in force. In the event that a court finds the prohibition of Collective Arbitration to be invalid or unenforceable, then the entirety of this agreement to arbitrate shall be deemed void (but no provisions of this Agreement unrelated to arbitration shall be void), and any remaining Dispute must be litigated in court pursuant to the preceding paragraph.
The existence of and all information regarding any Dispute will be held in strict confidence by the parties and will not be disclosed by either party except as reasonably necessary in connection with the conduct of the arbitration or the confirmation or enforcement of any arbitral award. Any such permitted disclosure will, to the maximum extent reasonably practicable, be made subject to obligations of confidentiality at least as stringent as the provisions of this paragraph. If any disclosure of information regarding any Dispute is required under applicable law, the parties shall reasonably cooperate with one another to obtain protective orders or otherwise to preserve the confidentiality of such information.
The Platform Agreement is between you and Rain and this Platform Agreement will not vest any rights, either on your behalf or otherwise, to any third party from your use of the Site or the Services provided, however, that affiliates of Rain are intended third party beneficiaries of these Platform Agreement (including in particular and without limitation, the “Arbitration”, “Limitation of Liability”, “Disclaimer of Warranties”, and “Indemnity” sections). This Platform Agreement, including incorporated terms, comprises the entire understanding of the parties with respect to the subject matter described and supersedes all other proposals or previous understandings, written or oral, between the parties.
The failure of Rain or its affiliates to exercise or enforce any right or provision of this Platform Agreement shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision in that or any other instance. If any provisions of this Platform Agreement is held to be unenforceable or invalid, such provision will be changed and interpreted to accomplish the objectives of such provision to the greatest extent possible under applicable law and the remaining provisions will continue in full force and effect.
You agree that Rain may respond to and comply with any legal order we receive related to your use of the Services, including subpoenas, warrants, or liens. Rain is not responsible to you for any losses you incur due to our response to such legal order. We may take any actions we believe are required of us under legal orders including holding funds or providing information as required by the issuer of the legal order. Where permitted, we will provide you reasonable notice that we have received such an order.
You agree that Rain may in its sole discretion may suspend or block your use of the Sites or use of the Services for any reason, including, without limitation, if Rain believes that you have violated or acted inconsistently with the letter or spirit of this Platform Agreement. Any suspected fraudulent, abusive or illegal activity may be referred to appropriate law enforcement authorities. You may not assign your rights or obligations under this Platform Agreement to any other party without our prior written consent. Rain may freely assign its rights and obligations under this Platform Agreement at any time without notice.
