Capitalized terms used in this Platform Agreement have the meaning provided in Section 4. We may update or replace this Platform Agreement with you by posting an updated version to our legal page.
You may only open and maintain a Rise Account and use the Services if you accept this Platform Agreement.
1. The Rise Platform
The Services allow you to issue and manage Cards for your Users; manage expenses and reporting; and access, use, and connect Third-Party Services through your Rise Account; and access other functionality through your Rise Account. Rise may change or provide new Services but will not materially diminish or remove Services without Notice except where necessitated by an Issuer or Third-Party Service Providers or required by law.
1.2 Applying for a Rise Account
You will need to provide Company Data and certain Personal Data and connect at least one Linked Account when submitting an application for a Rise Account. Company Data may include business information (such as registered business name and state of incorporation for Company, the business address, ownership details, actual or anticipated revenue, the nature of the business, and details from Linked Accounts and other business information we may request from time to time), Personal Data (such as the name, contact information, and date of birth of Users or beneficial owners), and documentary information used to verify business and Personal Data (such as corporate registration certificate, proof of address, or personal identification).
We provide Company Data and Personal Data to Issuers and Third-Party Service Providers to determine your eligibility for the Services and Cards. We may approve or deny your application or grant you provisional access to the Services or your Rise Account while your application is pending additional review. Rise and Issuers rely on the accuracy of Company Data and Personal Data when opening and maintaining your Rise Account. We may deny Applications, interrupt provision of the Services to you, or suspend or close your Rise Account for any reason including where Company Data or Personal Data is incomplete, inaccurate, or out of date. You will keep Company Data and each User’s Personal Data current, complete, and accurate in your Rise Account whether we provide you with full or provisional access.
We will disclose Fees to you when opening your Rise Account or through our website. Except where agreed upon in a writing executed by both parties, we may change Fees upon thirty days’ Notice to you.

You will immediately disable User access to the Services or reduce spending limits where you know or believe your Rise Account or Cards have been compromised or stolen or may be misused; and you will promptly notify us of any unauthorized access or use. We may help you resolve unauthorized transactions using your Cards, but you are ultimately responsible for financial loss caused by Administrators, Users, or other persons given access to the Services, your Rise Account, or Cards. We may suspend access to your Rise Account or Cards if we believe your Rise Account or Cards have been compromised or that not doing so may pose a risk to you, Rise, Issuers, or any third parties.

Cards are issued by the Issuer identified on the back of physical Cards issued to you, in the Card Terms, and relevant program materials provided to you. This Platform Agreement and the Card Terms govern your use of the Cards. You may only use the Cards if you, your Administrators, and your Users consent to the applicable Card Terms. Issuers may update Card Terms at any time by providing Notice to you through Rise and your continued use of the Cards constitutes your acceptance of the updated Card Terms.
2.2 Linked Accounts and Third-Party Services
We will use Financial Data from Linked Accounts to verify account balances and account information, establish spending limits, identify spending patterns and potential fraud, determine spending limits, analyze and report transactions, and provide Services to you. You must maintain at least one Linked Account at all times and agree that Rise may directly debit this Linked Account for payment of Periodic Statements. You may change Linked Accounts through your Rise Account. Use of specific Services or features may also require that permit Rise to access Company Data through Third-Party Services.
2.3 Spending Limits
Company spending limits are set by Rise and using Company Data including available funds and spending patterns, unbilled volume, future revenue, the nature and history of the Company’s business, and anticipated use of Cards. We may not disclose exact spending limits but may provide guidance identifying whether specific transactions or monthly volumes may exceed any spending limits. Spending limits are dynamic and may be modified at any time with or without Notice to you, including temporarily increases or decreases to your spending limits or reducing spending limits to $0. Administrators may set User-specific limits or controls through your Rise Account, but the aggregate spending limit for all Users may not exceed the total spending limit established for the Company.
2.4 Requesting and Replacing Cards
Administrators may request Cards for Users through your Rise Account but will only request Cards for and provide Cards to individuals that are employees or affiliated with or authorized by the Company. Cards may be denied or canceled due to changes in Issuers’ policies, as required by law, or for other reasons we determine are appropriate under the circumstances. Cards may be issued to Users as physical or virtual cards (a Card issued without an associated physical card). By default, new Users will be issued both a physical and virtual Card and will be able to view transactions and manage their Cards through the Rise Account.
You will promptly notify us and take appropriate measures to prevent unauthorized transactions when a Card is lost, stolen, breached, or needs to be replaced. In such cases, Administrators may request the issuance of replacement Cards by Issuers through your Rise Account. Replacement Cards may have new account numbers that will require you to update the Card on file for any scheduled or recurring payments. If you do not update the Card for scheduled or recurring payments, the transactions may not be completed. You are solely responsible for updating Cards stored with merchants where account numbers have been changed.
2.5 Using Cards
Users may only use Cards for bona fide business-related Charges. You are responsible for selecting who in your organization should have access to Cards. You agree to establish and maintain controls designed to ensure that the Cards are only used for bona fide Company purposes and in compliance with Card Network rules. You are solely responsible for Charges made by any individuals given access to Cards even if they are not the person associated with or named on the Card. Rise, Issuers, Card Networks, or other intermediary Third-Party Service Providers (including merchant acquirers) may deny or reverse Charges for any reason. Rise is not responsible for any losses, damages, or harm caused by a Charges that are denied or reversed.
If you and a merchant have a dispute regarding a Charge identified on your Periodic Statement, including delivery of the incorrect goods or services or being charged the wrong amount, you should first attempt to resolve the dispute with the merchant. If such a dispute is not resolved to your satisfaction or if you believe the Charge is unauthorized, you may initiate a Chargeback through your Rise Account. The Card Networks have established procedures for resolving Chargebacks that may require that you provide details of the disputed Charge or associated documentation. Chargebacks resolved in your favor will be credited to your Rise Account on either the current or a future Periodic Statement.
2.6 Periodic Statements
You are responsible for payment in full of all Charges, Fees, and Fines. We will provide you periodic statements identifying Charges, Fees, Fines, refunds, or other amounts owed or credited to your Rise Account in your Periodic Statement. Your Linked Account will be automatically debited for the full amount identified in the Periodic Statement at the end of each billing cycle and your Rise Account will show the credit the day after payment is received. Unless otherwise specified in writing by Rise, Periodic Statements for standard usage are issued every 30 days starting on the day that you create your Rise Account.
2.7 Set Off and Collections
Charges listed on Periodic Statements that are not paid on time may be collected from any Linked Account that is currently linked; or set off, debit, or collect from amounts in a Rise Account that you hold jointly with a third party or open in the future even if your original Rise Account has been closed. This right may be exercised against Company, its affiliates, any assignees for the benefit of your creditors, or receivers. This right will exist even if we do not exercise it prior to the making, filing, or issuance of an arbitration demand, court order, or other action.
Any failure to pay the full amount owed to Rise when required is a breach of this Agreement. You are responsible for all costs or expenses that we or Issuers incur collecting amounts owed but not timely paid, including legal or collections fees and any interest at the maximum rate permitted under law.
2.8 ACH Authorization
THIS SECTION PROVIDES AUTHORIZATION TO AUTOMATICALLY DEBIT YOUR LINKED ACCOUNTS FOR ALL AMOUNTS YOU OWE UNDER THIS PLATFORM AGREEMENT. PLEASE READ IT THOROUGHLY.
Your Authorization to Debit Linked Accounts. You authorize Rise, Issuers, or their assigns to collect amounts owed under this Platform Agreement by debiting funds from the Linked Accounts at depository institutions (including banks and credit unions) using the Automated Clearinghouse (ACH) network governed by the rules established by the National Automated Clearinghouse Association (NACHA). These debits are bound by NACHA rules for business-related ACH debits.

You also authorize Rise, Issuers, or their assigns to debit Linked Accounts immediately, on any date, and without additional Notice where (a) the total aggregate balance of Linked Accounts is less than any balance minimums that we have communicated to you or (b) we determine in our sole discretion that the Company poses or may pose an unacceptable risk to Rise, Issuers, or third parties or no longer satisfy the underwriting criteria used to establish the spending limit for Company.
Withdrawing Your Authorization: To withdraw the debit authorization from a Linked Account, you must provide us 30-day advanced Notice and pay all amounts owed under your Rise Account immediately, including Charges and other amounts that may be included in future Periodic Statements.
