Last updated April 2, 2022

  1. AGREEMENT TO TERMS

These Terms of Use are made between you, whether personally or on behalf of an entity (“you”) and Rocco Finance, Inc., doing business as Rocco (“Rocco,” “we,” “us,” or “our”), concerning your access to and use of the http://www.roccoapp.com website as well as any other media form, media channel, mobile website or mobile application related, linked, or otherwise connected thereto (collectively, the “Site”). We are registered in New York, United States and have our registered office at 99 Wall St 3450, New York, NY 10005. You agree that by accessing the Site, you have read, understood, and agreed to these Terms of Use. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE WITH ALL OF THESE TERMS OF USE, THEN YOU ARE EXPRESSLY PROHIBITED FROM USING THE SITE AND YOU MUST DISCONTINUE USE IMMEDIATELY.

Supplemental terms and conditions or documents that may be posted on the Site from time to time are hereby expressly incorporated herein by reference. We reserve the right, in our sole discretion, to make changes or modifications to these Terms of Use at any time and for any reason. We will alert you about any changes by updating the “Last updated” date of these Terms of Use, and you waive any right to receive specific notice of each such change. Please ensure that you check the applicable Terms every time you use our Site so that you understand which Terms apply. You will be subject to, and will be deemed to have been made aware of and to have accepted, the changes in any revised Terms of Use by your continued use of the Site after the date such revised Terms of Use are posted.

The information provided on the Site is not intended for distribution to or use by any person or entity in any jurisdiction or country where such distribution or use would be contrary to law or regulation or which would subject us to any registration requirement within such jurisdiction or country. Accordingly, those persons who choose to access the Site from other locations do so on their own initiative and are solely responsible for compliance with local laws, if and to the extent local laws are applicable.

THIS AGREEMENT ALSO INCLUDES, AMONG OTHER THINGS, A BINDING ARBITRATION PROVISION THAT CONTAINS A CLASS ACTION WAIVER.

  1. OVERVIEW OF SERVICES

Rocco offers a variety of services and features collectively referred to in this Agreement as the “Services”. These Services include:

  • Personal Finance Services – A suite of services and features you can subscribe to related to your budget, avoiding overdrafts, and more
  • Advance Service – Advances of your earned wages
  1. Personal Finance Services

3.1 Overview

If you subscribe to the Personal Finance Services, you will have access to account monitoring and budgeting services, and your external bank accounts. With budgeting services, we track those income and expenses we become aware of, and we let you know about estimated upcoming bills and other expenses. We will monitor your linked bank account held at a depository institution (a “Linked Account”) and let you know when it appears to us that you may be in danger of having insufficient funds in your Linked Account. We cannot predict all overspending you may do but we may be one helpful tool for you to use in addition to your own careful financial management.

3.2 Optional Membership Fee

Rocco charges an optional $2.99 per month membership fee (“Membership”) to maintain a connection to your external bank account through third-party services, if you choose to access our account monitoring and notification services, and the Personal Finance Services. Rocco deducts the Membership from your Linked Account or a linked debit card. The fee will be charged regardless of the status of your connection. If you are experiencing connectivity issues, please try to update your connected bank’s log-in credentials. If the Membership charge fails in a month you had elected to receive this service, by agreeing to these terms, then you authorize Rocco to process any failed or missed Membership charges together with the following month’s Membership. Should all attempts fail, Rocco reserves the right to charge the fee from another one of your connected checking accounts or debit card. You will be billed for your first Membership on a monthly basis, but the first 14 days will be a free trial. You may either pause your subscription through the Mobile App or notify us by email at hello@roccoapp.com if you do not want to renew your subscription.

  1. Advance Service

4.1 Overview

Rocco allows you to access some or all of various forms of income, as determined by Rocco, such as certain earned wages or certain government benefits checks by requesting an Advance before that income is deposited into your Bank Account. Advances can be made for an express fee or with some delay for no mandatory cost and can be accessed without paying the monthly membership fee described above. The amount of each Advance you are eligible for is determined based on an evaluation of a number of factors we have identified that we believe are related to evaluating your financial health. These factors may be changed at any time, at our sole discretion. The maximum Advance amount is $100. We have the right to adjust your eligible Advance amount at any time. We may also limit the number of Advances that you can request at any given time or over a period of time, or decline to extend an Advance to you if we reasonably believe such refusal is necessary or advisable for legal or security reasons or to protect the Services. Unless you choose the option to pay an express fee, you will receive your Advance within approximately three (3) Banking Days after you have submitted your request.

As mentioned above, you may receive Advances for no mandatory cost. You may, however, choose to make voluntary payments referred to as ‘Tips’ in appreciation of the Advance Service provided. In no way does a ‘Tip’ alter your eligibility to receive an Advance, your ability to access an Advance or the amount of any Advance for which you are eligible.

4.2 Express Fees

You may request that Rocco expedite disbursement of your Advance by paying an optional fee (the “Express Fee”). While you can generally receive an Advance within approximately three (3) business days depending on processing times, if you choose to pay the Express Fee, we will use a faster delivery method that will deliver the Advance to you within one business day. When you request an Advance and are given the option to expedite disbursement of the Advance, we will disclose the amount of the Express Fee to you again through the Mobile App before you make your selection. The Express Fee is payable if and when you choose to repay the Advance.

4.3 Advance Repayment

You are not required to repay any advance. We reserve the right to charge your Linked Account or debit card for the Advance repayment that you authorized Rocco to take. However, Rocco has no legal or contractual claim against you if you do not repay an Advance, and Rocco will not provide you further Advances while any amount remains unpaid under the Advance Service. Rocco will not engage in any debt collection activities, place or sell your account to a third party, or report you to a consumer reporting agency. If you have misrepresented your identity or other information to Rocco, then Rocco may pursue instances of fraud. Although Rocco is attempting to serve as one tool that may help users as users work to avoid their own overdraft fees, Rocco is not responsible for any overdraft fees, over-the-limit fees, insufficient fund charges, or any other bank fees that result from your failure to maintain a sufficient balance in your Linked Account. Rocco attempts to monitor your balance and will attempt to ensure you have sufficient funds before debiting your account, but Rocco makes no warranties that an overdraft will not occur.

  1. Refunds

The Subscription Fee is non-refundable.

  1. Cancellation

If you elect to receive an advance, and then you timely exercise your right to cancel this no-obligation transaction, then we will not debit your account for the amount advanced, tips, or express fees.

  1. Credit and Debit Authorization

If you request an Advance, you authorize Rocco Finance, Inc (“Rocco”), affiliates, any holder of your advance and their respective agents and their assignees to initiate, depending on the payment method you selected, a single electronic debit entry to your designated checking or savings account (“Account”) at your designated financial institution (“Financial Institution”) for which you are an authorized user, as well as any Account or Financial Institution you later designate, for payment of the payment(s) on your advance.

If you select preauthorized electronic fund transfers as your payment method you agree:

THE AMOUNT DEBITED FROM THE ACCOUNT WILL BE THE LESSER OF YOUR OUTSTANDING ADVANCE BALANCE AND THE PAYMENT LISTED ON THE FINAL ROCCO ADVANCE CONFIRMATION SCREEN. THE PAYMENT WILL BE DEBITED ON THE DUE DATE LISTED ON THE FINAL ROCCO ADVANCE CONFIRMATION SCREEN; HOWEVER, IF THE DUE DATE OCCURS ON A WEEKEND OR HOLIDAY, THE ACCOUNT MAY BE DEBITED THE NEXT BUSINESS DAY. YOU UNDERSTAND THAT YOU MUST PAY ALL OUTSTANDING AMOUNTS EVEN IF NOT DEBITED BY ROCCO.

You understand that your authorization will remain in full force and effect until Rocco has received oral or written notification from you at least 3 business days prior to your scheduled transfer to terminate this authorization.

If you enroll in the Personal Financial Management Services, you authorize Rocco to electronically debit your Payment Method for the $2.99 Subscription Fee once each month. As applicable, you also authorize Rocco to electronically debit and credit your Payment Method to correct erroneous debits and credits. You have the right to receive notice of any debit for the Subscription Fee that would vary in amount from a previous Subscription Fee, but you agree that we only need to notify you in advance if a particular debit from your Payment Method would be more than $2.99. (Our policy is that no single debit for the Subscription Fee will exceed $2.99, so we expect not to provide you with advance notice of each ongoing debit from your Payment Method.) You acknowledge that, as applicable, the electronic authorization contained in this Section represents your written authorization for automated clearinghouse (“ACH”) and debit card transactions as provided herein and will remain in full force and effect until you notify Rocco that you wish to revoke this authorization by emailing hello@roccoapp.com. You must notify Rocco at least three (3) business days before the scheduled debit date in order to cancel this authorization. When you call or email, please include the name and telephone number associated with your Mobile App user account. Failure to provide correct and complete information may make it impossible for Rocco to stop withdrawal of the preauthorized transaction. You agree to indemnify and hold Rocco harmless from and against any loss incurred as a result of its withdrawal of a preauthorized debit transaction from your Payment Method if any of the information relied upon in your request to stop payment is incorrect or incomplete. If you have followed the instructions in this section to notify Rocco of your desire to revoke your authorization at least three (3) business days before the scheduled debit date, Rocco will be liable for your losses or damages directly caused by our failure to stop any preauthorized transaction. If we do not receive notice at least three (3) business days before the scheduled debit date, we may attempt, in our sole discretion, to cancel the transaction. However, we assume no responsibility for our failure to do so. You warrant and represent to Rocco that you have the right to authorize us to charge and credit your Payment Method for payments due to us under this Agreement. If you have a joint Linked Account, you represent and warrant that you have the authority to (a) bind the absent account holder; and (b) enter into this Agreement independently. You agree to indemnify and hold Rocco harmless from any claims by any other owner of the Linked Account. You represent that you are capable of saving or otherwise storing a copy of this electronic authorization for your records, and the credit and debit transactions you request comply with applicable law.

The app is intended for users who are at least 18 years old. Persons under the age of 18 are not permitted to use or register for the app.

  1. DISPUTE RESOLUTION BY BINDING ARBITRATION

YOU HAVE READ THIS PROVISION CAREFULLY AND UNDERSTAND THAT IT LIMITS YOUR RIGHTS IN THE EVENT OF A DISPUTE BETWEEN YOU AND US. YOU UNDERSTAND THAT YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO REJECT THIS PROVISION AS PROVIDED IN SECTION 19.3 BELOW.

20.1 Election to Arbitrate.

You and Rocco agree that the sole and exclusive forum and remedy for resolution of a Claim be final and binding arbitration pursuant to this Section 19 (the “Arbitration Provision”), unless you opt out as provided in Section 19.3 below. As used in this Arbitration Provision, “Claim” shall include any past, present, or future claim, dispute, or controversy involving you (or persons claiming through or connected with you), on the one hand, and us on the other hand, relating to or arising out of this Agreement, and/or the activities or relationships that involve, lead to, or result from this Agreement, including (except to the extent provided otherwise in the last sentence of Section 19.8 below) the validity or enforceability of this Arbitration Provision, any part thereof, or the entire Agreement. Claims are subject to arbitration regardless of whether they arise from contract; tort (intentional or otherwise); a constitution, statute, common law, or principles of equity; or otherwise. Claims include matters arising as initial claims, counter‐claims, cross-claims, third-party claims, or otherwise. Please note that you may continue to assert Claims in small claims court, if your Claims qualify and so long as the matter remains in such court and advances only on an individual (non-class, non-representative) basis. The scope of this Arbitration Provision is to be given the broadest possible interpretation that is enforceable.

20.2 Applicability of the Federal Arbitration Act; Arbitrator’s Powers.

This Arbitration Provision is made pursuant to a transaction involving interstate commerce and shall be governed by and enforceable under the Federal Arbitration Act (the “FAA”). The arbitrator will apply substantive law consistent with the FAA and applicable statutes of limitations. The arbitrator may award damages or other types of relief permitted by applicable substantive law, subject to the limitations set forth in this Arbitration Provision. The arbitrator will not be bound by judicial rules of procedure and evidence that would apply in a court. The arbitrator shall take steps to reasonably protect confidential information.

20.3 Opt-Out of Arbitration Provision.

You may opt out of this Arbitration Provision for all purposes by sending an arbitration opt out notice to hello@roccoapp.com, within 60 days of the date of your electronic acceptance of the terms of this Agreement. The opt out notice must clearly state that you are rejecting arbitration; identify the Agreement to which it applies by date; provide your name, address, and social security number; and be signed by you. You may send an opt-out notice in any manner you see fit as long as it is received at the specified address within the specified time. No other methods can be used to opt out of this Arbitration Provision. If the opt out notice is sent on your behalf by a third party, such third party must include evidence of his or her authority to submit the opt out notice on your behalf.

20.4 Informal Dispute Resolution.

If a Claim arises, our goal is to learn about and address your concerns and, if we are unable to do so to your satisfaction, to provide you with a neutral and cost effective means of resolving the dispute quickly. You agree that before filing any claim in arbitration, you may submit Claims by sending an email to hello@roccoapp.com at any time.

20.5 Arbitration Procedures.

The party initiating arbitration shall do so with the American Arbitration Association (the “AAA”) or Judicial Alternatives and Mediation Services (“JAMS”). The arbitration shall be conducted according to, and the location of the arbitration shall be determined in accordance with, the rules and policies of the administrator selected, except to the extent the rules conflict with this Arbitration Provision or any countervailing law. If you have any questions concerning the AAA or would like to obtain a copy of the AAA arbitration rules, you may call 1(800) 778-7879 or visit the AAA’s web site at: www.adr.org. If you have any questions concerning JAMS or would like to obtain a copy of the JAMS arbitration rules, you may call 1(800) 352-5267 or visit their web site at: www.jamsadr.com. In the case of a conflict between the rules and policies of the administrator and this Arbitration Provision, this Arbitration Provision shall control, subject to countervailing law, unless all parties to the arbitration consent to have the rules and policies of the administrator apply. The arbitration will be held in the United States county where you live or work, or any other location we agree to.

20.6 Arbitration Fees.

If we elect arbitration, we shall pay all the administrator’s filing costs and administrative fees (other than hearing fees). If you elect arbitration, filing costs and administrative fees (other than hearing fees) shall be paid in accordance with the rules of the administrator selected, or in accordance with countervailing law if contrary to the administrator’s rules. We shall pay the administrator’s hearing fees for one full day of arbitration hearings. Fees for hearings that exceed one day will be paid by the party requesting the hearing, unless the administrator’s rules or applicable law require otherwise, or you request that we pay them and we agree to do so. Each party shall bear the expense of its own attorneys’ fees, except as otherwise provided by law. If a statute gives you the right to recover any of these fees, these statutory rights shall apply in the arbitration notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein.

20.7 Appeals.

Within 30 days of a final award by the arbitrator, any party may appeal the award for reconsideration by a three-arbitrator panel selected according to the rules of the arbitrator administrator. In the event of such an appeal, any opposing party may cross-appeal within 30 days after notice of the appeal. The panel will reconsider de novo all aspects of the initial award that are appealed. Costs and conduct of any appeal shall be governed by this Arbitration Provision and the administrator’s rules, in the same way as the initial arbitration proceeding. Any award by the individual arbitrator that is not subject to appeal, and any panel award on appeal, shall be final and binding, except for any appeal right under the Federal Arbitration Act (“FAA”), and may be entered as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction.

20.8 No Class Actions.

NO ARBITRATION SHALL PROCEED ON A CLASS, REPRESENTATIVE, OR COLLECTIVE BASIS (INCLUDING AS PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL ON BEHALF OF OTHERS), EVEN IF THE CLAIM OR CLAIMS THAT ARE THE SUBJECT OF THE ARBITRATION HAD PREVIOUSLY BEEN ASSERTED (OR COULD HAVE BEEN ASSERTED) IN A COURT AS CLASS REPRESENTATIVE, OR COLLECTIVE ACTIONS IN A COURT. Unless consented to in writing by all parties to the arbitration, no party to the arbitration may join, consolidate, or otherwise bring claims for or on behalf of two or more individuals or unrelated corporate entities in the same arbitration unless those persons are parties to a single transaction. Unless consented to in writing by all parties to the arbitration, an award in arbitration shall determine the rights and obligations of the named parties only, and only with respect to the claims in arbitration, and shall not (a) determine the rights, obligations, or interests of anyone other than a named party, or resolve any Claim of anyone other than a named party; nor (b) make an award for the benefit of, or against, anyone other than a named party. No administrator or arbitrator shall have the power or authority to waive, modify, or fail to enforce this Section 19.8, and any attempt to do so, whether by rule, policy, arbitration decision or otherwise, shall be invalid and unenforceable. Any challenge to the validity of this Section 19.8 shall be determined exclusively by a court and not by the administrator or any arbitrator.

20.9 Survival and Severability of Arbitration Provision.

This Arbitration Provision shall survive the termination of this Agreement. If any portion of this Arbitration Provision other than Section 19.8 is deemed invalid or unenforceable, the remaining portions of this Arbitration Provision shall nevertheless remain valid and in force. If there is a final judicial determination that applicable law precludes enforcement of this Arbitration Provision’s limitations as to a particular claim for relief or particular term, then that claim (and only that claim) or that term (and only that term) must be severed from the Arbitration Provision and may be brought in court. If an arbitration is brought on a class, representative, or collective basis, and the limitations on such proceedings in Section 19.8 are finally adjudicated pursuant to the last sentence of Section 19.8 to be unenforceable, then no arbitration shall be had. In no event shall any invalidation be deemed to authorize an arbitrator to determine Claims or make awards beyond those authorized in this Arbitration Provision.

20.10 Judicial Forum for Claims.

Except as otherwise required by applicable law, in the event that this Arbitration Provision is found not to apply to you or your Claim, you and Rocco agree that any judicial proceeding (other than small claims actions) will be brought in the federal or state courts of New York County, New York. Both you and Rocco consent to venue and personal jurisdiction there. We both agree to waive our right to a jury trial.

20.11 WAIVER OF RIGHT TO LITIGATE.

THE PARTIES ACKNOWLEDGE THAT THEY HAVE A RIGHT TO LITIGATE CLAIMS THROUGH A COURT BEFORE A JUDGE OR JURY, BUT WILL NOT HAVE THAT RIGHT IF ANY PARTY ELECTS ARBITRATION PURSUANT TO THIS ARBITRATION PROVISION. THE PARTIES HEREBY KNOWINGLY AND VOLUNTARILY WAIVE THEIR RIGHTS TO LITIGATE SUCH CLAIMS IN A COURT BEFORE A JUDGE OR JURY UPON ELECTION OF ARBITRATION BY ANY PARTY.

27. ELECTRONIC FUND TRANSFER DISCLOSURE STATEMENT

The following disclosures are made in accordance with the federal law regarding electronic payments, deposits, transfers of funds and other electronic transfers. There may be limitations on your Linked Account or debit card that restrict your ability to make electronic fund transfers. Any such limits are disclosed in the appropriate agreements governing your Linked Account or debit card. The disclosures in this Section 27 apply to all Services described in this Agreement.

27.1 Definitions.

  • Electronic Fund Transfer: Any transfer of funds that is initiated through an electronic device or computer to instruct us to debit or credit a Linked Account or debit card. Electronic Fund Transfers include such electronic transactions transfers initiated via telephone or the Mobile App.
  • Preauthorized Electronic Fund Transfer: An Electronic Fund Transfer that you have authorized in advance to recur at substantially regular intervals; for example, withdrawal of funds out of your Linked Account to pay the Subscription Fee.
  • Unauthorized Electronic Fund Transferis an Electronic Fund Transfer initiated by a person other than you who does not have actual, implied, or apparent authority to initiate the transfer, and from which you do not benefit. If you give access to your Mobile App user account to another person, all payments by that person are authorized unless and until you notify us that payments by that person are no longer authorized.

27.2 Your Liability.

  • Authorized Transfers: You are liable for all Electronic Fund Transfers that you authorize, whether directly or indirectly.
  • Unauthorized Transfers: Tell us at once if you believe your Mobile App Login ID or password has been lost or stolen or if your Mobile App user account has been, or may have been, subject to Unauthorized Electronic Fund Transfers. Contact us immediately to keep your possible losses to a minimum. You could lose all the money in your Linked Account(s).
  • If your periodic account statement issued by your bank or financial institution shows Unauthorized Electronic Fund Transfers and you DO NOT tell us within ninety (90) days after the statement was delivered to you, you may not get back any money you lose after the ninety (90) day period if we can prove that we could have prevented the unauthorized transfer(s) if you had told us in time. If an extenuating circumstance (such as extended travel or hospitalization) prevents you from promptly notifying us of a suspected lost or stolen Mobile App Login ID or password or of any other suspected Unauthorized Electronic Fund Transfers(s), the time periods specified in this Section 27.2 may be extended for a reasonable period.

27.3 Business Days. For purposes of this Section 27, Rocco business days are Monday through Friday. US Federal Holidays, as defined in 5 U.S.C. § 6103, are not included.

27.4 Types of Transfers; Limitations. You may use the Services to request and receive Advances to your Linked Account or debit card, to repay such Advances in the amounts and on the days you request, to pay voluntary tips to Rocco, and to pay the monthly Subscription Fee. Any limitations regarding Advance amount, tip amount or Subscription Fee amount will be displayed to you through the Services. Through the Mobile App you may also authorize recurring preauthorized Electronic Fund Transfers from your Linked Account or debit card to pay for the Subscription Fee.

27.5 Fees. Rocco does not require you to pay fees to access an Advance. However, you may choose to pay an Express Fee to expedite an Advance.

27.6 Documentation. Your Advance and payment history can be viewed within the Mobile App by navigating to the “Cash Advance” tab. You are responsible for reviewing payment history and maintaining copies for your records.

27.7 Our Liability. If Rocco does not debit or credit your Linked Account or debit card in accordance with these Terms, we will be liable for your losses or damages. However, there are some exceptions. We will not be liable, for instance:

  • If, through no fault of ours, you do not have enough money in your Linked Account or debit card to make a payment.
  • If the Linked Account or debit card you specify as the payment source is closed or does not contain sufficient funds to complete the payment or the charge is rejected or returned by your bank or financial institution.
  • If the Services were not working properly and you knew about the problems when you started your payment.
  • If we cannot complete a payment due to fraud or attacks on our systems or the Services.
  • If circumstances beyond our control (such as fire or flood) prevent a payment, despite reasonable precautions we have taken.
  • There may be other exceptions stated in our Agreement with you.

27.8 Confidentiality Related to Electronic Fund Transfers. We will disclose information to third parties about the Electronic Fund Transfers you make through the Services:

  • Where it is necessary for completing the Electronic Fund Transfers; or,
  • In order to comply with government agency or court orders; or,
  • If you give us written permission; or,
  • As otherwise provided in our Privacy Policy.

27.9 Error Resolution

In case of errors or questions about your Electronic Fund Transfers, telephone us at 1-214-957-5878 or email us at hello@roccoapp.com. If you think your Linked Account statement, receipt, or payment history within the Mobile App are wrong, or if you need more information about a transfer listed on the statement, receipt, or within the Mobile App, contact us as soon as you can. We must hear from you no later than 90 days after the statement or receipt was delivered to you. In your notification to us, you must:

  • Tell us your name and phone number associated with your Mobile App user account.
  • Describe the error or the transfer you are unsure about, and explain as clearly as you can why you believe it is an error or why you need more information.
  • Tell us the dollar amount of the suspected error.

If you tell us orally, we may require that you send us your complaint or question in writing within 10 business days.

We will determine whether an error occurred within 10 business days after we hear from you and will correct any error promptly. If we need more time, however, we may take up to 45 days to investigate your complaint or question. If we decide to do this, we will credit your Linked Account or within 10 business days for the amount you think is in error, so that you will have the use of the money during the time it takes us to complete our investigation. If we ask you to put your complaint or question in writing and we do not receive it within 10 business days, we may not credit your account.

For errors involving new Mobile App user accounts, we may take up to 90 days to investigate your complaint or question. For new Mobile App user accounts, we may take up to 20 business days to credit your Linked Account for the amount you think is in error. We will tell you the results within three business days after completing our investigation. If we decide that there was no error, we will send you a written explanation. You may ask for copies of the documents that we used in our investigation.
