Welcome to the BlueOrange Payments, Inc. dba Optimus reseller portal account (the “Reseller Account”).

Optimus reserves the right to terminate your access to the Reseller Account immediately if you are in breach of the Acceptable Use of the Reseller Account and User Restrictions contained herein or if we have a reasonable need to do so, such as to prevent unauthorized access to your account.

3. Access and Use

3.1. Passwords

You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of passwords used to access the Reseller Account in accordance with industry standard best practices, and you will only share your password or login information with your authorized employees.

Optimus may suspend a user’s account or remove or disable any content which Optimus reasonably and in good faith believes is in violation of this Agreement or any applicable laws or regulations. Optimus agrees to provide you with reasonable notice of any such suspension or disablement before its implementation unless immediate suspension or disablement is necessary to comply with legal process, regulation, order, or prevent imminent harm to the Reseller Account or any third party, in which case Optimus will notify you to the extent allowed by applicable law of such suspension or disablement, as soon as reasonably practicable thereafter.

4. Third Party Software Providers and Data Residency

As part of providing you access to the Reseller Account, Optimus may enter into software license agreements with several third-party software providers (the Third-Party Software Providers) for the use of third-party software. The Reseller Account is hosted on Amazon’s AWS cloud-computing platform (the Platform) and may utilize applications and software tools that integrate with the Platform (each an App or collectively the Apps) (collectively, the Platform and Apps will be collectively referred to as Third-party Software). A list of Third-Party Software Providers and Third-Party Software can be requested at support@optimusways.com.

By using the Reseller Account, you acknowledge that the Reseller Account is integrated with or may otherwise interact with the Third-party Software and agree to the use of the Third-party Software by Optimus. You acknowledge and agree that data being uploaded/downloaded via the Reseller Account will traverse Third-Party Software and may therefore be accessed by Third-Party Software Providers. It may also transit through servers located outside of Canada, including the United States and, in such cases, the affected Third-Party Software Providers could be required to disclose data, including personal information, in its custody to such foreign government, government agencies, courts, or law enforcement or regulatory agencies pursuant to the laws of the country in which the data has transited. Optimus will impose confidentiality obligations upon the Third-Party Software Providers that are as strict as we are able to negotiate, but we do not have control over their conduct and Optimus will not be liable for any loss or damage arising from your or Optimus’s use of the Third-party Software or the Reseller Account, including any losses relating to a Third-party Software Provider’s collection, use, disclosure, or loss of your data.

You further acknowledge that each Third-Party Software may have its own terms and conditions of use and privacy policy and your use of the Third-party Software will be governed by and subject to such terms and conditions and privacy policies. You understand and agree that Optimus does not endorse and is not responsible or liable for the behavior, features, or content of any Third-party Software or for any transaction you may enter into with the provider of such Third-party Software, nor does Optimus warrant the compatibility or continuing compatibility of the Third-party Software with the Reseller Account. For more information, we recommend you review the Third-party Software Providers’ terms and conditions and privacy policy on each Third-Party Software Provider’s website.
