1. ABOUT OUR SERVICE
The Service allows users to send international money transfers from the United States to India, Mexico, and the Philippines served by Lawfully. We provide our Service through which you can send money to friends and family. Therefore, you should not use the Service to send money to strangers. A "Sender" uses our Service to send money and a "Recipient" receives money through the Service. A "Transaction" indicates an order to send money through the Service. The "Transaction Amount" is the amount in US dollars that the Sender provides to Lawfully for transmission to the Recipient. The "Payout Amount" is the amount paid out to the Recipient.
- Age and Capacity. You must be at least eighteen (18) years old to create an account, access, or use the Service as a Sender. You must be able to form legally binding contracts under applicable law. Other restrictions may apply.
- Others. You may not submit or receive a Transaction on behalf of any other person.
- Residence within the United States. The Service is available to residents of the United States only.
- Bank account in the United States. The Service requires you to have an open bank account in the United States.
- Offer and Acceptance. If you submit a Transaction, you are requesting that we process your Transaction, an offer that we may accept or reject at our sole discretion.
- Registered in the United States Only Lawfully is not licensed to provide the Service outside of the United States of America. As a result, the Service may not be available for use in countries other than the United States.
- Multiple Accounts. Senders may only have one active account. If we determine that a Sender is using multiple accounts we reserve the right to merge or terminate one or more of the accounts, limit the Sender's use of the Service, or refuse their continued use of the Service.

- Government Disclosures. We may provide information about you and your Transactions to government authorities and law enforcement agencies.
- Verifying information. You authorize us to make any inquiries, to you or to others, which are necessary to validate the information that you provide to us. This may include asking you for additional information, requiring you to take steps to confirm ownership of your email address or financial instruments, verifying your information against third party databases, or through other sources.
4. TRANSACTION METHOD
- Transaction is made by wire transfer, and you will be asked to enter your bank account information. Your transaction order will remain inactive until we receive your funds to a specified account.
5. EXCHANGE RATES
- The “Transaction Amount” is the amount that you send from Your Bank Account in wire transfer, minus any applicable fees and prior to any foreign exchange conversion.
- We always specify the exchange rate applicable to your Transaction at the time you initiate your requested Transaction, and this rate could be higher or lower than the one at the beginning when you finalize a Transaction due to the volatility of the daily exchange rate.
- We do not guarantee that the rates match any particular benchmark source at any given time. We are not liable if the amount received by the Recipient is less than anticipated as a result of changes in the global currency markets.
- We take some margin or spread on the exchange rate associated with your Transaction.
- A total $5 of a flat fee is charged on every Transaction. The fee exemption applies to subscribers of Case Analysis Pro, Lawfully’s premium subscription plan.
7. BUSINESS DAY
- “Business Day“ means any day, other than a Saturday, Sunday, federal or any other state holiday. Transaction may take 3 to 5 business days to be completed depending on a banking system and other circumstances.
8. IMPORTANT SERVICE RESTRICTIONS
- General. We may refuse any Transaction or limit the amount to be transferred, either on a per transaction or aggregated basis. These limits may be imposed on individual accounts or linked accounts. We reserve the right at any time to modify or discontinue all or any part of the Service.
- Delays. Your Transaction may be delayed by our effort to verify your identity and validate your Payment Instruments and otherwise comply with laws or manage our financial risk. You may be entitled to a refund in certain circumstances and you may cancel your transaction at any time while it is pending.
- Commercial Transactions. You should not use the Service to send money except to people that you know. We are not responsible for the quality or delivery of goods or services that you pay for using the Service. You accept that using the Service to pay for goods and services is at your own risk.

- Cancellation. You can cancel your transaction at any time prior to its completion. Completion means that your recipient claimed the money you sent through a bank account deposit. Upon receipt of a cancellation request, we may confirm with our Service Providers to determine whether the transaction has been completed prior to initiating a refund. You can also cancel your transaction (a) within 30 minutes of authorizing your transaction or (b) at any time thereafter if the Transaction Amount has not yet been converted in accordance with your order.
- Once Transactions have been executed, they cannot be reversed, and, except as expressly set out in this Agreement, we will not be liable in any way for any loss you suffer as a result of a Transaction being carried out in accordance with your instructions.
Your security is very important to Lawfully, and we use a variety of security measures to make sure that your information is secure. We urge you to think carefully before sending money to anyone that you do not know well. In particular, you should be cautious of deals or offers that seem too good to be true. If you think you have been or might be a victim of fraud, please contact us immediately at firstname.lastname@example.org or Help Center in the app.
