NOTWITHSTANDING ANYTHING IN THE TWILIO AGREEMENT, THIS AGREEMENT IS HEREBY INCORPORATED INTO AND SUBJECT TO THE TERMS OF YOUR TWILIO AGREEMENT, AND IN THE EVENT OF A CONFLICT BETWEEN THE TERMS OF THIS AGREEMENT AND YOUR TWILIO AGREEMENT, THE TERMS OF THIS AGREEMENT SHALL CONTROL. Capitalized terms not defined herein shall have the definitions provided in your Twilio Agreement.
Twilio, via its third-party partners (each a "Payment Processing Provider"), is connecting you with payment processing services ("Payment Processing Services"). As part of the installation process, you may also be required to accept the Payment Processing Provider's terms of service ("Payment Processing Provider's Terms"). You acknowledge, for each Payment Processor Service you install through the Twilio Console, the Payment Processing Provider's Terms constitute a binding agreement between you and the applicable Payment Processing Provider only. You acknowledge that you are agreeing to the Payment Processing Provider's Terms for the applicable Payment Processing Provider; Twilio is not a party to that agreement between you and the Payment Processing Provider with respect to that Payment Processing Service; and Twilio is not responsible for that Payment Processing Service, the content therein, or any claims that you or any other party may have relating to that Payment Processing Service or your use of that Payment Processing Service. Your agreement to the Payment Processing Provider's Terms shall not modify or otherwise supersede the terms of this Agreement and/or your Twilio Agreement nor any other terms or policies incorporated by reference.
The rights granted to you to use any Payment Processing Provider Services are personal to you, and are not transferable to your End Users, unless Payment Processing Provider Services are incorporated into Customer's solution.

You represent, warrant, and covenant that you have sufficient rights and authority to enter into this Agreement, and to grant the rights and assume all of their respective rights and obligations set forth herein.

Other General Legal Terms
The term of this Agreement will begin when you install Twilio <Pay> and will end when terminated by you or by Twilio, as described in this Agreement.
You may terminate this Agreement at any time, for any or no reason, by immediately ceasing your use of Twilio <Pay>. However, your obligations under your Twilio Agreement for all other Twilio products other than Twilio <Pay> shall continue to remain in effect. And if you commence using Twilio <Pay> again, you are consenting to this Agreement. Twilio may, in its sole discretion, suspend or terminate this Agreement immediately (a) if we suspect you are in breach of this Agreement or your Twilio Agreement (including any terms or policies incorporated by reference); (b) if you are the subject of any voluntary or involuntary bankruptcy or insolvency petition or proceeding; (c) if Twilio determines that you are engaged in activity that is suspected or actually fraudulent, illegal or otherwise malicious or fails to comply with applicable law; (d) causes a significant risk of reputational harm to Twilio; or (e) to prevent harm to the security, stability, availability, or integrity of Twilio.

All obligations in your Twilio Agreement will only be terminated in accordance with its terms and conditions. Termination of your Twilio Agreement will cause this Agreement to automatically terminate.
This Agreement, your Twilio Agreement, and the terms and policies incorporated by reference constitute the entire agreement between you and Twilio with respect to Twilio <Pay>. Your Twilio Agreement sets forth your exclusive remedies with respect to Twilio <Pay>. If any provision or portion of this Agreement is held to be invalid or unenforceable under applicable law, then it will be interpreted to accomplish the objectives of such provision to the greatest extent possible, and all remaining provisions will continue in full force and effect.
