Please read the following terms and conditions of the service. If you do not want to be bound by these terms and conditions, do not accept the service. We want the terms and conditions to meet your needs and the needs of our other Merchants, and we expect that these terms and conditions will evolve over time. We will post the Terms and Conditions, including any changes, on the UnlimitedMUSE Website located at  and we ask that you periodically review them. Your continued use of the service will constitute acceptance of any changes to the terms and conditions. This agreement becomes effective on the date it is accepted by UnlimitedMUSE.

1. Definitions

When used in this agreement, the following definitions apply:

2. Website Pricing Options

The default minimum price that you can charge is $2.95 per transaction. The default maximum is $399.99 per transaction. Any exceptions must be applied for in writing to UnlimitedMUSE, and may or may not be accepted based solely on UnlimitedMUSE’s discretion.

3. Services

The services covered by this agreement include all services offered by UnlimitedMUSE’s payment processing and related services. UnlimitedMUSE reserves the right to stop allowing you to use these services if in UnlimitedMUSE’s judgment they are contributing to violations of UnlimitedMUSE’s Acceptable Use Policies (AUP) or high volumes of negative transactions or Consumer complaints. UnlimitedMUSE reserves the right to begin charging for these services upon thirty (30) days written notice to the contact information that we have on file for you, and UnlimitedMUSE also reserves the right to offer new services that are not covered by this agreement, and to charge you extra if you choose to use them.

In order to provide the highest level of service to all UnlimitedMUSE’s Merchants, data provided by Consumers for transaction processing will be combined with data from all UnlimitedMUSE’s’ Merchants. The combined database will be used for risk analysis of your and all other Merchants’ transactions. Ownership of the combined database remains with UnlimitedMUSE. Credit card information from UnlimitedMUSE’s database will not be provided to you or any other party during this agreement or upon termination of this agreement. You are responsible for maintaining a record of all consumer information for your own use as well as for backup in the event of a system failure that requires restoration.

Any unauthorized attempt to gain access to UnlimitedMUSE’s database or systems by you, or anyone directly or indirectly associated or related to you, however remotely, will constitute a material breach of this agreement. In the event of any such attempt to gain access, UnlimitedMUSE may immediately terminate this agreement, and you will immediately return to UnlimitedMUSE all copies of any information obtained by this access.

4. Tangible Products Sales

UnlimitedMUSE agrees to permit Merchant to submit transactions for tangible Products, and Merchant agrees to submit transactions for the sale of tangible Products subject to the terms of this Agreement, the attached policies (Exhibit B) and the attached addition to UnlimitedMUSE’s standard AUP (Exhibit A).

Merchant acknowledges and agrees that it will not use UnlimitedMUSE’s systems for any purpose that is illegal.

5. Fees

UnlimitedMUSE shall charge, and Merchant agrees to pay, the fees set forth in Schedule 1 attached hereto for the services provided by UnlimitedMUSE. UnlimitedMUSE shall have the right to change the fees stated herein upon providing notice to Merchants at least 10 days prior to the effective date of such changes. UnlimitedMUSE will deduct this fee from your funds before payment to you.

In addition to the fee, UnlimitedMUSE shall hold a security deposit for a default minimum of six months as set forth in Schedule 2 attached hereto. UnlimitedMUSE may increase its security deposit requirements, at any time, if in UnlimitedMUSE’s sole discretion it is necessary to cover potential refunds, ACH returned items, chargebacks, Consumer disputes, and/ or fines or penalties imposed directly or indirectly on UnlimitedMUSE.

If UnlimitedMUSE is penalized by its providers for chargebacks, refunds, or returned checks arising from UnlimitedMUSE’s processing transactions for your indirect or direct activity, UnlimitedMUSE may at any time and at its discretion pass through to you actual amount of the penalty per item. UnlimitedMUSE’s waiver of this paragraph for any period of time does not constitute forfeiture of UnlimitedMUSE’s right to impose the application of the penalties retroactively or for that period of time. You acknowledge that the card associations and regulatory agencies may apply chargebacks and fines retroactively and that UnlimitedMUSE must retain that right as well. In the event a flat amount penalty is assessed against UnlimitedMUSE as opposed to a per transaction penalty, UnlimitedMUSE may at its sole discretion prorate the flat amount among those Merchants that UnlimitedMUSE at its sole discretion deems to have been the cause of the penalty.

6. Payment

In order to receive payments a signed copy of this contract must be received by UnlimitedMUSE. You may fax the signed agreement to +49 211 5580249. You agree by clicking to accept these Terms & Conditions at the end of this contract that UnlimitedMUSE may withhold payments on new accounts until the signed contract is accepted and verified by UnlimitedMUSE.

UnlimitedMUSE will issue payment to you on a weekly basis. The payment made will be for the net amount of the Consumer charges for the week ending on Saturday, one week prior to the week the payment is issued. While UnlimitedMUSE will make reasonable effort to make payment on Monday, if there are unusual circumstances such as delays in UnlimitedMUSE receiving payment from banks, holidays, or system failures, UnlimitedMUSE will make payment as soon after Monday as possible.

The net amount of payment will be the amount of Consumer charges minus UnlimitedMUSE fees, security deposit, and refunds not processed in previous payments, chargebacks, ACH returned items, payment delivery fees, taxes, penalties, and any additional security deposit amounts. UnlimitedMUSE reserves the right to charge any of these deductions against the security deposit and to require you to replenish the security deposit to a level deemed appropriate solely by UnlimitedMUSE or its Acquiring Bank.

In order to resolve complaints and disputes, you agree that UnlimitedMUSE may issue refunds without your knowledge or approval in any situation UnlimitedMUSE thinks is appropriate. UnlimitedMUSE may also include the Consumer in its database of blocked accounts if there is an indication of fraud or inappropriate use of the Consumer’s information by the Consumer or anyone else.

7. Cancellation

You and UnlimitedMUSE can cancel this agreement at any time with 10 days written notice. Email and telephone are not acceptable forms of notice. UnlimitedMUSE also has the right to cancel this agreement without notice, if you violate the terms of this agreement, or UnlimitedMUSE’s Acceptable Use Policies (AUP). UnlimitedMUSE’s AUP is available on its website. UnlimitedMUSE will change its AUP from time to time and it is your responsibility to check it often to make sure you are in compliance. In cases of minor violations, UnlimitedMUSE will give you an opportunity to become compliant, but UnlimitedMUSE can cancel this agreement or take any other action UnlimitedMUSE feels is appropriate if you do not comply. Serious violations by you or any of your referrers or upon notification by any of the card associations or regulatory agencies to discontinue accepting transactions will result in UnlimitedMUSE canceling this agreement immediately.

During the term of this Agreement or in the event that you cancel this Agreement, you agree that for a period of one year following such cancellation you will not attempt to circumvent UnlimitedMUSE by utilizing any of UnlimitedMUSE’s acquirers or service providers for processing transactions for your websites.

UnlimitedMUSE may terminate either (a) this Agreement, (b) any service or (c) both, immediately, if you are the subject of a bankruptcy order, become insolvent, make any arrangement or composition with or assignment for the benefit of creditors, go into voluntary or compulsory liquidation, have a receiver or administrator appointed over your assets, or if the equivalent of any such events under the laws of any of the relevant jurisdictions occurs to you.

Upon cancellation/termination of your account, UnlimitedMUSE will hold all funds due to you for a minimum of six months as reserve for possible refunds, returned checks and chargebacks.

8. Merchant Obligations

Merchant acknowledges its responsibility as the consumer facing entity. Merchant is solely responsible for delivery of products and is liable to the consumer for all fulfillment obligations. You agree to use UnlimitedMUSE’s services for the sale of legal goods and services. Without UnlimitedMUSE’s prior written approval, you will not use UnlimitedMUSE’s services for the sale of goods not previously approved by UnlimitedMUSE. You also agree to abide by the Terms and Conditions of this agreement and UnlimitedMUSE’s Acceptable Use Policies (AUP). UnlimitedMUSE reserves the right to manually or electronically review your Store Front(s) to ensure there are no violations of the Terms and Condition or the AUP.

On UnlimitedMUSE’s consumer signup page for your Store Front, UnlimitedMUSE will plainly show the Consumer the price(s) you are charging and all terms and conditions of the purchase. If this agreement is terminated by either you or UnlimitedMUSE for any reason, you must leave the ability for Consumers to cancel their purchases through UnlimitedMUSE’s services until there are no more active transactions. If you do not do this, or if in UnlimitedMUSE’s judgment there will be excessive chargebacks, or ACH returned items, UnlimitedMUSE will immediately issue refunds to your Consumers, and hold all payments and reserves until such time as UnlimitedMUSE is convinced that there will be no further refunds and/or chargebacks. The minimum time that UnlimitedMUSE will withhold payment is six months.

You will always maintain the ability to respond to your Consumer’s product related inquiries and try to resolve issues amicably. If, in UnlimitedMUSE’s opinion Consumer complaints and/or chargebacks are excessive, UnlimitedMUSE may choose to cancel this agreement and you agree to immediately reimburse to UnlimitedMUSE all its expenses related to chargebacks and refunds.

You may change the prices for your Store Front whenever you want. The correctness, functionality, and accuracy of these changes are your responsibility regardless of who makes them.

UnlimitedMUSE’s employees have entered into an agreement to protect UnlimitedMUSE’s confidential and trade secret information even after their employment. You agree that it would be difficult for UnlimitedMUSE to enforce this agreement if you were to hire an employee or a former employee and it would be difficult for the employee to abide by the terms of the agreement. You therefore agree that you will not hire or enter into a contract of any kind with a current or former UnlimitedMUSE/CWIE employee for a period of 24 months following the effective date of that employee’s last date of employment with CWIE/UnlimitedMUSE or any company affiliated with UnlimitedMUSE or CWIE without UnlimitedMUSE’s written prior approval.


The Merchant is responsible for all use of their account(s) and confidentiality of password(s), including choosing safe passwords and ensuring file protections are set correctly. UnlimitedMUSE will suspend or change access to your UnlimitedMUSE Merchant account(s) immediately upon notification by you that your password has been lost, stolen or otherwise compromised. UnlimitedMUSE is not liable for any usage and or charges prior to UnlimitedMUSE making the necessary account alteration.


The right to use UnlimitedMUSE’s payment processing service is not transferable. Use of UnlimitedMUSE’s e-commerce and payment processing accounts are expressly limited to the individual or business whose name appears on the Transaction Processing Agreement and ownership of the account cannot be split with multiple individuals. The account holder may choose to add additional authorized users, but the authorization of these users is limited to access to allow for certain changes to the account, and does not include making account ownership changes.

The account holder (principal) agrees to assume responsibility for these authorized users on their UnlimitedMUSE account and any affect that they may have on the account.

11. Authorization

12. Privacy Policy

You understand that unlimitedMUSE’s Merchant Privacy Policy in part reads, “By using UnlimitedMUSE’s services, you agree that we may release information obtained in the course of your use of UnlimitedMUSE’s services when it is believed, in UnlimitedMUSE’s sole and absolute discretion, that the release is appropriate  or otherwise necessary to comply with the law, enforce our Agreement, and/or protect the contract and other rights of our Merchants.”

13. Taxes

UnlimitedMUSE and you both agree to pay any and all taxes that are imposed on UnlimitedMUSE or your respective business.

Judgment upon the award, if any, rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof.

Should any legal action permissible under this Agreement be instituted to enforce the terms and conditions of this Agreement, in particular the right to collect money due on unpaid invoices, the prevailing party will be entitled to recover reasonable attorneys’ fees and expenses incurred at both the trial and appellate levels.
