Stack App - User Agreement
STACK USER AGREEMENT
Last updated: August 2, 2022
Welcome to Stack! This User Agreement (“Agreement”) is between you (“you” or “user”) and WE Labs, Inc. dba Stack (“Stack” or “we”). This Agreement governs your access to and use of the products and services Stack offers through its website (“Site”) and mobile application (“App”), which are referred to collectively as Stack’s “Services.”
The Services are offered and available to users who are between the ages of thirteen and seventeen, have been designated as an authorized user (each, an “Authorized User”), and reside in the United States or any of its territories or possessions. By using these Services, you represent and warrant that you meet all of the foregoing eligibility requirements. If you do not meet all of these requirements, you must not access or use the Services and we determine that you do not meet any of these requirements your account will immediately be terminated.
WE Labs, Inc. is a financial institution engaged in the business of providing financial services to customers who maintain a credit, deposit, trust, or other financial account or relationship with the institution.
Section 1 – Eligibility, Authorized Users, and the Role of Parents or Legal Guardians
To be eligible to enter into this Agreement, you must be at least 18 years of age, be able to legally enter into contracts under applicable law, and reside in the United States.
You may designate one or more other people as Authorized Users of your Stack Account and the Services; provided, however, that the maximum number of Authorized Users on any Stack Account at any given time is five (5). Authorized Users may include minor children for whom you are a parent or legal guardian. Any minor who uses the Services must do so only as authorized by their parent or legal guardian, who must themselves be eligible to enter into this Agreement. You understand and acknowledge that this Agreement applies to you and any Authorized User, and you expressly accept this Agreement on behalf of yourself and each of your Authorized Users.
You further agree to and accept full responsibility for any Authorized User’s use of the Services, including without limitation (a) any transactions made by an Authorized User on your Stack Account at any time; (b) any transactions made by others to whom an Authorized User gave access to use your Stack Account; (c) any fees or charges from any transactions made by an Authorized User or others to whom an Authorized User gave access to use your Stack Account; or (d) any other charges or liability that an Authorized User may incur in connection with their use of your Stack Account.
Authorized Users will have access to information about (but not the ability to trade in) other accounts at Stack maintained for their benefit or in their name, including accounts they may not otherwise have been aware of. These include: (i) any account established under the Uniform Gift to Minors Act (UGMA) or the Uniform Transfer to Minors Act (UTMA) where an Authorized User is the named beneficiary, (ii) any UGMA or UTMA 529 account where the Authorized User is the named beneficiary, (iii) any Roth Individual Retirement Account (IRA) for Minors established for the Authorized User, and (iv) any IRA where the original account holder is deceased and the assets have passed to the Authorized User as the named beneficiary on the account. This access will continue until the Authorized User reaches the age of majority and transitions the Account in accordance with the process outlined in the Authorized User Supervision and Account Graduation section of this Agreement. You acknowledge the foregoing and authorize the Authorized User to have access to this information. In situations where you may not be able to provide this authorization yourself (e.g., an UGMA account where you are not the custodian), you warrant and represent that you have consulted the individual empowered to provide such consent and obtained that consent and that Stack is entitled to rely on your representation and warranty to the same extent as if we had obtained that consent directly from such individual.
You understand, acknowledge, and agree that, except as otherwise limited by this Agreement, an Authorized User may access, use, and receive information about your Stack Account in the same manner that you do. By adding an Authorized User, you represent that you have permission from such Authorized User to allow Stack to share information about such Authorized User as permitted by applicable law, including information about Authorized User’s transactions and other use of the Services.
Section 2 – Authorized User Supervision and Account Graduation
You agree to promptly review your Authorized User’s trading and activity on Stack and to contact us immediately in the event that you have any questions or concerns or to request that your Authorized User’s ability to trade securities or use Stack be suspended (i.e., your Authorized User will not be able to transact using whatever payment method is saved to the account). You understand and agree that WE Labs, Inc. will not monitor or supervise your Authorized User’s account activity (i.e., the securities transactions and/or digital asset trading that your teen engages in) and will only act in response to your request.
Once an Authorized User reaches the age of majority (currently eighteen) we will work with them to transition to a new account. Among other things, this means the Authorized User will have to agree to a new set of documents governing our relationship. You will not be associated with this new account. If your Authorized User does not transition to a new account, we will deactivate the prior account, prohibit deposits, and restrict your Authorized User’s ability to make additional purchases. Until your Authorized User transitions to a new account, you will still be associated with and have access to the Stack Account (as defined below).
Section 3 – Registration of Stack Account and Security
You will need to create an account to use the Services (a “Stack Account”). You are responsible for maintaining the security of your Stack Account and your access credentials, including your username and password. Stack will not be liable for any harm resulting from your failure to maintain the security of your Stack Account or your access credentials. You are fully responsible for all activity that occurs under your Stack Account. You acknowledge and agree that Stack is not responsible for third party access to your Stack Account, whether by an Authorized User or an unauthorized user. Stack may, in its sole discretion, refuse to open a Stack Account, or limit the number of Stack Accounts that you may hold or suspend or terminate any Stack Account or the trading of specific digital currency in your Stack Account.
