Terms Of Service For The Vip Preferred®
1. ACCEPTANCE OF TERMS
Global Payments Gaming Services, Inc. (Global Payments) provides the Services (described in Paragraph 2 below) to you subject to the following Terms of Service (TOS), which may be updated by Global Payments from time to time without notice to you. By accessing and using the Services, you accept and agree to be bound by the terms and provisions of this or any updated TOS. In addition, when using particular Services, you shall be subject to any guidelines or rules posted by Global Payments or its Service Providers applicable to such Services, which may be posted and modified from time to time. All references to “Service Providers” in these TOS shall refer to Service Providers retained by Global in its sole discretion to perform some or all of the Services and may include, without limitation, Certegy Check Services, Inc. (Certegy).
2. SERVICE DESCRIPTION AND AUTHORIZATION
Global Payments assists gaming establishments with the cashing of checks and associated check cashing risk management through its VIP Preferred® Program. Upon enrollment in the VIP Preferred Program, you will have access to a personal 7-day revolving program limit tied directly to your checking account. After your initial enrollment, you will no longer need to present a check to access funds from your checking account. Simply present your government-issued driver's license or identification card to the cashier and the requested amount will be deducted from your 7-day VIP Preferred Program limit. You understand that if you are approved for a specified dollar amount with the VIP Preferred Program, that amount represents a 7-calendar day revolving check cashing limit that will be authorized at all gaming establishments that participate in the VIP Preferred Program. Each check presented within a revolving 7-calendar day period will be deducted from the established check cashing limit. After a 7-calendar day period, an approved item will be removed and the amount will be included in the available check cashing balance. Neither Global Payments nor its Service Providers is a check casher and the VIP Preferred Program does not mean you have been granted a line of credit; you understand that each individual check must still be authorized. In addition, you authorize Global Payments and its Service Providers, to obtain information from your consumer report. Global Payments and its Service Providers will use this information for qualification to the VIP Preferred Program. Global Payment s and its Service Providers reserve the right to deny any check transaction if all approval criteria are not met. Global Payments and its Service Providers will perform periodic reviews of your check cashing history and consumer report to evaluate your VIP Preferred Program limit. You hereby authorize these procedures and understand that a review of your account may result in an increase, decrease, or revocation of your check cashing privileges at gaming establishments that participate in the VIP Preferred Program.
