The ability for the Seller to provision the Purchaser with the requested goods and/or service is conditional on the Purchaser being able to successfully utilize and participate in third party payment processors (including, but not limited to, Stripe and its affiliates) as well as the Anti Money Laundering (AML) and Know Your Customer (KYC) policies and obligations of the third party payment processors. In the event that the Purchaser and Seller cannot successfully transact due to seizure of funds or denial of payment by a third party payment processor, this agreement is null and void, and all outstanding or in-progress services will be terminated, with no product or service obliged to be provisioned thereafter. The Purchaser may attempt to resolve their AML/KYC issues with third party processors, but the Purchaser acknowledges that the Seller is under obligation to continue working with the Purchaser, even if the Purchaser is not deemed at-fault.
