8. Payments and Billing
- Paid Services. Certain of our Services are subject to payments (the “Paid Services”). Please see here for a description of the current Paid Services, including our various membership services (“Memberships”), and here to go to the Casa Store, where we offer for purchase Casa’s own products (“Casa Products”) and the products of third party providers (such products “Third Party Products” and such providers “Third Party Providers”) through the Services. Please note that any payment terms presented to you in the process of using or signing up for a Paid Service or purchasing Casa Products or Third-Party Products (individually and collectively, “Products”) are deemed part of this Terms of Service.
- Billing. Depending on which payment option you choose, we either (i) use Stripe, a third-party payment processor (the “Payment Processor”), to bill you, through a payment account linked to your Account on the Services (your “Billing Account”), or (ii) bill you directly using BTCPay, for payment in a digital currency accepted by us at the time of the transaction (a “Casa-Accepted Digital Currency”), for use of the Paid Services, and for any purchases of Products that you make through your Account. If you do not have an Account on the Services and purchase Products, we either use the Payment Processor to bill you through a payment method accepted by the Payment Processor at the time of your purchase or bill you directly using BTCPay, again depending on your chosen payment method. You acknowledge that your payments will be subject to the terms and conditions (including without limitation exchange and conversion rates) and privacy policies of the financial institution, credit card or debit card issuer, Exchange, or other provider of your chosen payment method, as applicable, in addition to these Terms of Service. (The processing of payments by our Payment Processor will be subject to the terms, conditions and privacy policies of the Payment Processor in addition to this Terms of Service, which for United States users can be found here.) We are not responsible for error by the Payment Processor or by your chosen financial institution, credit card or debit card issuer, Exchange, or other payment provider, and reserve the right to correct any such errors or mistakes even if payment has already been requested or received. By choosing to use Paid Services, including Memberships, and/or purchase Products, you agree to pay us, either through the Payment Processor or directly in a Casa-Accepted Digital Currency, as applicable, all charges at the prices then in effect for any use of such Paid Services or purchase of such Products, in accordance with the applicable payment terms, and you authorize us to charge your chosen payment provider through the Payment Processor or to transfer Casa-Accepted Digital Currency from your holdings in an Exchange directly to Casa (your “Payment Method”). You agree to make payment using that selected Payment Method.
- Payment Method. The terms of your payment will be based on your Payment Method and may be determined by agreements between you and the financial institution, credit card issuer, Exchange or other provider of your chosen Payment Method. If we, through the Payment Processor, do not receive payment from you, you agree to pay all amounts due on your Billing Account upon demand.
- Recurring Billing. Some of the Paid Services may consist of an initial period, for which there is a one-time charge, followed by recurring period charges as agreed to by you. By choosing a recurring payment plan, you acknowledge that such Services have an initial and recurring payment feature and you accept responsibility for all recurring charges prior to cancellation. WE MAY SUBMIT PERIODIC CHARGES (E.G., MONTHLY OR YEARLY) WITHOUT FURTHER AUTHORIZATION FROM YOU, UNTIL YOU PROVIDE PRIOR NOTICE (RECEIPT OF WHICH IS CONFIRMED BY US) THAT YOU HAVE TERMINATED THIS AUTHORIZATION OR WISH TO CHANGE YOUR PAYMENT METHOD. SUCH NOTICE WILL NOT AFFECT CHARGES SUBMITTED BEFORE WE REASONABLY COULD ACT. TO TERMINATE YOUR AUTHORIZATION OR CHANGE YOUR PAYMENT METHOD, EMAIL [email protected] OR CALL (857) 598-4354.
- Current Information Required. YOU MUST PROVIDE CURRENT, COMPLETE AND ACCURATE INFORMATION FOR YOUR PAYMENT METHOD. YOU MUST PROMPTLY UPDATE ALL INFORMATION TO KEEP YOUR PAYMENT METHOD CURRENT, COMPLETE AND ACCURATE (SUCH AS A CHANGE IN BILLING ADDRESS, CREDIT CARD NUMBER, OR CREDIT CARD EXPIRATION DATE), AND YOU MUST PROMPTLY NOTIFY US OR OUR PAYMENT PROCESSOR (IF APPLICABLE) IF YOUR PAYMENT METHOD IS CANCELED (E.G., FOR LOSS OR THEFT) OR IF YOU BECOME AWARE OF A POTENTIAL BREACH OF SECURITY, SUCH AS THE UNAUTHORIZED DISCLOSURE OR USE OF YOUR USER NAME OR PASSWORD. CHANGES TO SUCH INFORMATION CAN BE MADE AT BY EMAILING [email protected] IF YOU FAIL TO PROVIDE ANY OF THE FOREGOING INFORMATION, YOU AGREE THAT WE MAY CONTINUE CHARGING YOU FOR ANY USE OF PAID SERVICES UNDER YOUR BILLING ACCOUNT UNLESS YOU HAVE TERMINATED YOUR PAID SERVICES AS SET FORTH ABOVE.
- Change in Amount Authorized. If the amount to be charged to your Billing Account or Exchange varies from the amount you preauthorized (other than due to the imposition or change in the amount of state sales taxes), you have the right to receive, and we shall provide, notice of the amount to be charged and the date of the charge before the scheduled date of the transaction. Any agreement you have with your payment provider or Exchange will govern your use of your Payment Method. You agree that we may accumulate charges incurred and submit them as one or more aggregate charges during or at the end of each billing cycle.
- Auto-Renewal for Membership Services. Unless you opt out of auto-renewal, which can be done by emailing [email protected], any Memberships you have signed up for will be automatically extended for successive renewal periods of the same duration as the subscription term originally selected, at the then-current non-promotional rate. To change or resign your Membership at any time, email [email protected] If you terminate a Membership, you may use your subscription until the end of your then-current term; your subscription will not be renewed after your then-current term expires. However, you won’t be eligible for a prorated refund of any portion of the subscription fee paid for the then-current subscription period.
- Reaffirmation of Authorization. Your non-termination or continued use of a Membership, or other Paid Service that is offered on a subscription basis, reaffirms that we are authorized to charge your Payment Method for that Paid Service. We may submit those charges for payment and you will be responsible for such charges. This does not waive our right to seek payment directly from you. Your charges may be payable in advance, in arrears, per usage, or as otherwise described when you initially selected to use the Paid Service.
- Free Trials and Other Promotions. Any rules, policies, or procedures presented to you in connection with a free trial or promotional offer, including without limitation any that involve SatsBack, shall govern such free trial and promotional offer and shall be incorporated into these Terms of Service. Any free trial or other promotion that provides access to a Paid Service must be used within the specified time of the trial. You must stop using a Paid Service before the end of the trial period in order to avoid being charged for that Paid Service. If you cancel prior to the end of the trial period and are inadvertently charged for a Paid Service, please contact us at [email protected] or at (857) 598-4354.
- Product Descriptions and Availability. Descriptions, images, references, features, content, specifications, products, prices, and availability of any Products made available through the Services are subject to change without notice. The inclusion of any Products on the Services at a particular time does not imply or warrant that these products will be available at any time. We reserve the right, with or without prior notice, to limit the available quantity of or discontinue any Product on the Services; to bar any user from making any or all purchases; or to refuse to provide any user with any product.

By taking certain actions described on the SatsBack Program page in connection with the Services (“Qualifying Actions”), users may be eligible to receive certain rewards from Casa (“SatsBack”), as set forth therein and in accordance with these Terms of Service. Your eligibility to participate in the SatsBack Program and to receive SatsBack is subject to Casa’s sole discretion at all times. The terms and conditions relating to any Qualifying Actions or SatsBack programs are subject to change without notice. The inclusion of any Qualifying Actions or SatsBack programs at a particular time does not imply or warrant that they will be available at any time. We reserve the right, with or without prior notice, to limit the available quantity of or discontinue any SatsBack promotions; to bar any user from redeeming any accumulated SatsBack; or to refuse to provide any user with any SatsBack. SatsBack may only be redeemed by the user who accrued them.
- Redemption. In order to redeem accrued SatsBack for Bitcoin, you must establish and maintain an active Account and control a Non-Custodial Wallet, as well as provide Casa with the information necessary to transfer your redeemed Bitcoin to that Non-Custodial Wallet. You acknowledge and agree that if you elect to terminate or delete your Account before you have redeemed all accrued SatsBack, you abandon any claim and forfeit all rights to the remaining SatsBack in your Account at that time. Casa shall not be liable to you for any SatsBack in your Account upon any termination of your Account. Additionally, as a condition of redemption, you must not be a resident of a country subject to economic or trade sanctions by the U.S. State Department or U.S. Treasury Department’s Office of Foreign Assets Control (“OFAC”) or be listed as a “Specially Designated National,” a “Specially Designated Global Terrorist,” a “Blocked Person,” or similar designation under the OFAC sanctions regime. You further agree to provide additional information Casa requested by Casa as a condition for redeeming SatsBack.
- Calculations. Casa shall calculate eligible SatsBack redemption amounts using a ratio of Satoshi’s (one hundred millionth of a single bitcoin (0.00000001 Bitcoin)) to SatsBack reward points (“SatsBack Peg”). The Bitcoin value will be determined by the SatsBack Peg as of the applicable SatsBack redemption date, and based on the number of accumulated SatsBack being redeemed on such date. All calculations and determinations, including the determination of the SatsBack Peg on any given SatsBack redemption date and whether any particular action meets the requirements for a Qualifying Action, shall be performed by Casa at its sole discretion. The current SatsBack Peg can be found on the SatsBack program page. Casa hereby disclaims any and all liability in connection with (i) incorrect information obtained from third parties regarding the value of Bitcoin on any given date, or (ii) any disputes over the value of Bitcoin on any given date.
- Limitations. Your Account may not have access to more than $1,000 US Dollars in SatsBack rewards (the “SatsBack Account Limit”) on any single date. Casa determines the US Dollar value of your account based on the price listed on cryptocompare.com. You will not receive any SatsBack for a Qualifying Action if such SatsBack would cause either (i) your Account balance to exceed the SatsBack Account Limit, or (ii) the total of all your redemptions executed on that date to exceed the SatsBack Account Limit. Additionally, you may not transfer any SatsBack to other users of the Services or third parties, or cause SatsBack earned for a Qualifying Action to be credited to another user.
- Your Legal Obligations. It is your responsibility to ascertain and obey all applicable local, state, federal, and international laws (including minimum age requirements and tax obligations) in regard to the receipt of any Bitcoin in connection with redemption of SatsBack. You acknowledge that you may be taxed on any receipt of Bitcoin, depending on federal, state, and local laws applicable to you, and agree that you will be solely responsible for any and all tax liability arising out of the consideration received in connection with redeeming SatsBack.
- Customer Service. If you have any questions about SatsBack or the SatsBack Program, please contact us at [email protected].
We may terminate your access to all or any part of the Services at any time, with or without cause, with or without notice, effective immediately, which may result in the forfeiture and destruction of all information associated with your membership. If you wish to terminate your Account, you may do so by following the instructions on the Site or through the Services. Any fees paid hereunder are non-refundable.

16. ARBITRATION CLAUSE & CLASS ACTION WAIVER – IMPORTANT – PLEASE REVIEW AS THIS AFFECTS YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS
- Arbitration. YOU AGREE THAT ALL DISPUTES BETWEEN YOU AND US (WHETHER OR NOT SUCH DISPUTE INVOLVES A THIRD PARTY) WITH REGARD TO YOUR RELATIONSHIP WITH US, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION DISPUTES RELATED TO THESE TERMS OF SERVICE, YOUR USE OF THE SERVICES, AND/OR RIGHTS OF PRIVACY AND/OR PUBLICITY, WILL BE RESOLVED BY BINDING, INDIVIDUAL ARBITRATION UNDER THE AMERICAN ARBITRATION ASSOCIATION’S RULES FOR ARBITRATION OF CONSUMER-RELATED DISPUTES AND YOU AND WE HEREBY EXPRESSLY WAIVE TRIAL BY JURY; PROVIDED, HOWEVER, THAT TO THE EXTENT THAT YOU HAVE IN ANY MANNER VIOLATED OR THREATENED TO VIOLATE OUR INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY RIGHTS, WE MAY SEEK INJUNCTIVE OR OTHER APPROPRIATE RELIEF IN ANY STATE OR FEDERAL COURT IN THE STATE OF NEW YORK. DISCOVERY AND RIGHTS TO APPEAL IN ARBITRATION ARE GENERALLY MORE LIMITED THAN IN A LAWSUIT, AND OTHER RIGHTS THAT YOU AND WE WOULD HAVE IN COURT MAY NOT BE AVAILABLE IN ARBITRATION. As an alternative, you may bring your claim in your local “small claims” court, if permitted by that small claims court’s rules and if within such court’s jurisdiction, unless such action is transferred, removed or appealed to a different court. You may bring claims only on your own behalf. Neither you nor we will participate in a class action or class-wide arbitration for any claims covered by this agreement to arbitrate. YOU ARE GIVING UP YOUR RIGHT TO PARTICIPATE AS A CLASS REPRESENTATIVE OR CLASS MEMBER ON ANY CLASS CLAIM YOU MAY HAVE AGAINST US INCLUDING ANY RIGHT TO CLASS ARBITRATION OR ANY CONSOLIDATION OF INDIVIDUAL ARBITRATIONS. You also agree not to participate in claims brought in a private attorney general or representative capacity, or consolidated claims involving another person’s account, if we are a party to the proceeding. This dispute resolution provision will be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act and not by any state law concerning arbitration. In the event the American Arbitration Association is unwilling or unable to set a hearing date within one hundred and sixty (160) days of filing the case, then either we or you can elect to have the arbitration administered instead by the Judicial Arbitration and Mediation Services. Judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court having competent jurisdiction. Any provision of applicable law notwithstanding, the arbitrator will not have authority to award damages, remedies or awards that conflict with these Terms of Service. You agree that regardless of any statute or law to the contrary, any claim or cause of action arising out of, related to or connected with the use of the Services or these Terms of Services must be filed within one (1) year after such claim of action arose or be forever banned.
- Severability. If the prohibition against class actions and other claims brought on behalf of third parties contained above is found to be unenforceable, then all of the preceding language in this Arbitration section will be null and void. This arbitration agreement will survive the termination of your relationship with us.
17. Governing Law and Jurisdiction
These Terms of Service shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of New York, including its conflicts of law rules, and the United States of America, and without regard to the Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods.

The failure of either party to exercise in any respect any right provided for herein shall not be deemed a waiver of any further rights hereunder

Electronic notices should be sent to [email protected]
- No Waiver. Our failure to enforce any part of these Terms of Service shall not constitute a waiver of our right to later enforce that or any other part of these Terms of Service. Waiver of compliance in any particular instance does not mean that we will waive compliance in the future.
