Terms of Use

Welcome to Marqeta’s online community platform (the "Platform")! Through the Platform, you'll be able to communicate, share, and learn with other users of Marqeta products and services ("Marqeta Products"). By accessing the Platform, you agree to these Marqeta Developer Community Platform Terms of Use, our Developer Community Guidelines, our Privacy Policy, and all other policies or notices posted by us through the Platform, our website, or referenced herein (collectively, these "Terms"). You agree to notify Marqeta of any facts or circumstances of which you become aware that would make representations in these Terms inaccurate in any respect. These Terms apply no matter how you access the Platform, whether on our website, via our mobile applications, or through other means. If you are accessing or using the Platform on behalf of your company, you represent that you are authorized to accept these Terms on behalf of your company, and all references to "you" reference your company. As used in these terms, "Marqeta," "we" and "us" refer to Marqeta, Inc. ("Marqeta"). Any use of or access to the Platform by anyone under the age of 13 is prohibited.

For the avoidance of doubt, use and provisioning of Marqeta Products are subject to separate terms, such as our Customer Agreement, and these Terms do not apply to use of or access to Marqeta Products.

From time to time, we may modify these Terms. Unless we specify otherwise, changes become effective upon our posting of the updated Terms, and the updated Terms will apply to all use of the Platform after they are posted. We will use reasonable efforts to notify you of the changes through communications via the Platform, email or other means.

BY INDICATING YOUR ACCEPTANCE OF THESE TERMS OR ACCESSING OR USING THE PLATFORM, YOU AGREE TO BE BOUND BY ALL TERMS, CONDITIONS, AND NOTICES CONTAINED OR REFERENCED IN THESE TERMS. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO THESE TERMS, PLEASE DO NOT USE THE PLATFORM. FOR CLARITY, EACH PARTY EXPRESSLY AGREES THAT THESE TERMS ARE LEGALLY BINDING UPON IT.

  9. INDEMNIFICATION.  You agree to defend, indemnify, and hold harmless Marqeta, its affiliates, and its and their respective officers, employees, directors, service providers, licensors, and agents (collectively, the “Marqeta Parties”) from any and all losses, damages, expenses, including reasonable attorneys’ fees, rights, claims, actions of any kind, and injury (including death) arising out of or relating to your use of the Platform, your content, your violation of these Terms, or your violation of any rights of another. Notwithstanding the foregoing, you will have no obligation to indemnify or hold harmless any Marqeta Party from or against any liability, losses, damages, or expenses incurred as a result of any action or inaction of such Marqeta Party.  Marqeta will provide notice to you of any such claim, suit, or proceeding.  Marqeta reserves the right to assume the exclusive defense and control of any matter which is subject to indemnification under this section, and you agree to cooperate with any reasonable requests assisting Marqeta’s defense of such matter. You may not settle or compromise any claim against the Marqeta Parties without Marqeta’s written consent. If you are a California resident, you waive California Civil Code Section 1542, which says: “A general release does not extend to claims that the creditor or releasing party does not know or suspect to exist in his or her favor at the time of executing the release and that, if known by him or her, would have materially affected his or her settlement with the debtor or releasing party.” If you are a resident of another jurisdiction, you waive any comparable statute or doctrine.
  10. DISCLAIMER OF WARRANTIES.  YOUR USE OF THE PLATFORM IS AT YOUR SOLE RISK. THE PLATFORM IS PROVIDED ON AN “AS IS” AND “AS AVAILABLE” BASIS.  MARQETA EXPRESSLY DISCLAIMS ALL WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND, WHETHER EXPRESS, IMPLIED OR STATUTORY, INCLUDING THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, TITLE, AND NON-INFRINGEMENT.  MARQETA MAKES NO WARRANTY THAT (A) THE PLATFORM WILL MEET YOUR REQUIREMENTS; (B) THE PLATFORM  WILL BE UNINTERRUPTED, TIMELY, SECURE, OR ERROR-FREE; (C) THE RESULTS THAT MAY BE OBTAINED FROM THE USE OF THE PLATFORM WILL BE ACCURATE OR RELIABLE; OR (D) THE QUALITY OF ANY PRODUCTS, SERVICES, INFORMATION, OR OTHER MATERIAL PURCHASED OR OBTAINED BY YOU THROUGH THE PLATFORM WILL MEET YOUR EXPECTATIONS.
  11. LIMITATION OF LIABILITY.  YOU EXPRESSLY UNDERSTAND AND AGREE THAT MARQETA WILL NOT BE LIABLE FOR ANY INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, EXEMPLARY DAMAGES, OR DAMAGES FOR LOSS OF PROFITS, INCLUDING DAMAGES FOR LOSS OF GOODWILL, USE, OR DATA OR OTHER INTANGIBLE LOSSES (EVEN IF MARQETA HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES), WHETHER BASED ON CONTRACT, TORT, NEGLIGENCE, STRICT LIABILITY, OR OTHERWISE, RESULTING FROM: (A) THE USE OR THE INABILITY TO USE THE PLATFORM; (B) THE COST OF PROCUREMENT OF SUBSTITUTE GOODS AND SERVICES RESULTING FROM ANY GOODS, DATA, INFORMATION, OR SERVICES PURCHASED OR OBTAINED OR MESSAGES RECEIVED THROUGH OR FROM THE PLATFORM; (C) UNAUTHORIZED ACCESS TO OR ALTERATION OF YOUR TRANSMISSIONS OR DATA; (D) STATEMENTS OR CONDUCT OF ANY THIRD PARTY ON THE PLATFORM; OR (E) ANY OTHER MATTER RELATING TO THE PLATFORM.  IN NO EVENT WILL MARQETA’S TOTAL LIABILITY TO YOU FOR ALL DAMAGES, LOSSES, OR CAUSES OF ACTION EXCEED THE AMOUNT YOU HAVE PAID MARQETA IN THE LAST SIX (6) MONTHS, OR, IF GREATER, ONE HUNDRED DOLLARS ($100). SOME JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE DISCLAIMER OR EXCLUSION OF CERTAIN WARRANTIES OR THE LIMITATION OR EXCLUSION OF LIABILITY FOR INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES. ACCORDINGLY, SOME OF THE ABOVE LIMITATIONS SET FORTH ABOVE MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU OR BE ENFORCEABLE WITH RESPECT TO YOU. IF YOU ARE DISSATISFIED WITH ANY PORTION OF THE PLATFORM OR WITH THESE TERMS, YOUR SOLE AND EXCLUSIVE REMEDY IS TO DISCONTINUE USE OF THE PLATFORM. IF YOU ARE A USER FROM NEW JERSEY, THE FOREGOING SECTIONS TITLED “DISCLAIMER OF WARRANTIES” AND “LIMITATION OF LIABILITY” ARE INTENDED TO BE ONLY AS BROAD AS IS PERMITTED UNDER THE LAWS OF THE STATE OF NEW JERSEY. IF ANY PORTION OF THESE SECTIONS IS HELD TO BE INVALID UNDER THE LAWS OF THE STATE OF NEW JERSEY, THE INVALIDITY OF SUCH PORTION WILL NOT AFFECT THE VALIDITY OF THE REMAINING PORTIONS OF THE APPLICABLE SECTIONS.
  12. SUPPORT. If you have any support inquiries or wish to provide any feedback on the Platform, please do so directly in the "Community Feedback Forum" within the Platform.
  13. MISCELLANEOUS.  These Terms  (together with the terms incorporated by reference herein) constitute the entire agreement between you and Marqeta governing your access and use of the Platform, and supersede any prior agreements between you and Marqeta with respect to the Platform. You also may be subject to additional terms and conditions that may apply when you use third party services, content or software.   These Terms will be governed by the laws of the State of California  without regard to its conflict of law provisions. With respect to any disputes or claims, you and Marqeta submit to the personal and exclusive jurisdiction of the state and federal courts located within San Francisco, CA.  The failure of Marqeta to exercise or enforce any right or provision of these Terms will not constitute a waiver of such right or provision. If any provision of these Terms is found by a court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, the parties nevertheless agree that the court should endeavor to give effect to the parties’ intentions as reflected in the provision, and the other provisions of these Terms remain in full force and effect. You agree that regardless of any statute or law to the contrary, any claim or cause of action arising out of or related to use of the Platform or these Terms must be filed within one (1) year after such claim or cause of action arose or be forever barred.
