1. Access to Services
Access to and use of the Services are available only to persons who are employees of Square Sellers that subscribe to Services. Your Employer, through its subscription to the Services, is providing you with access to the Services under these Payroll Employee Terms. The Services allow you to register your email address and a password in order to receive your paycheck through direct deposit, view your pay stubs and other documents made available by your Employer, and update your bank account, tax withholding allowances, and other personal information used by your Employer to process payroll and calculate your taxes. If you do not have a registered and valid login or are no longer an employee of your Employer, you are not authorized to access or use the Services, except that you may be able to access certain information related to your employment with former Employers for limited purposes.
2. Your Information
You are responsible for determining and accurately providing your personal information, such as your correct mailing address and tax withholding allowances from federal and state tax withholding allowance certificates that you provide directly to your Employer. Your personal information is used to calculate and withhold the correct tax amounts from your pay and to send you your W-2. Therefore, you are also responsible for updating your information when your personal or financial situation changes. You acknowledge that if you fail to accurately provide or update your personal information, your Employer may do so on your behalf. We are not responsible for inaccurate tax withholdings due to incomplete, incorrect, or outdated information. You acknowledge and agree that it is your responsibility to submit information to your Employer and to verify the accuracy and completeness of all such information. You further acknowledge and understand that we do not review the accuracy or completeness of the information that you submit and we are not providing any legal or tax advice by providing the Services. You acknowledge and understand that we are merely making the Services available to you at the request of and on behalf of your Employer.
