Waiver of Jury Trial; Binding Arbitration. User or Corpay may, without the other’s consent, elect mandatory, binding arbitration for any claim, dispute, or controversy between or among such parties arising from or in any way relating to these Terms and Conditions, the Account Messages, the Marketing Messages, the Messaging Service, or the relationship of such parties, including without limitation claims regarding the application, enforceability, or interpretation of these Terms and Conditions and this arbitration provision, and no matter what legal theory such claims are based on or what remedy (damages, or injunctive or declaratory relief) such claims seek (a “Claim”). The party filing for arbitration must choose one of the following arbitration firms and follow its rules and procedures for initiating (including paying the filing fee) and pursuing arbitration before a single neutral arbitrator: American Arbitration Association, National Arbitration Forum, or JAMS. All other fees will be allocated as provided by the rules of the arbitration firm and applicable law.
Can User assert or participate in a class action? To accommodate the right to arbitrate, User agrees that User will neither assert, nor participate in, a class action or other representative action or proceeding related to these Terms and Conditions, the Account Messages, the Marketing Messages, the Messaging Service or any other aspect of User’s relationship with Corpay. Claims must be brought in the name of an individual person or entity and must proceed on an individual (non-class, non-representative) basis.
Who can be a party? The arbitrator will not award relief for or against anyone who is not a party. If User or Corpay requires arbitration of a Claim, neither User, Corpay, nor any other person may pursue the Claim in arbitration as a class action, private attorney general action or other representative action, nor may such Claim be pursued on your or our behalf in any litigation in any court. Claims, including assigned Claims, of two or more persons may not be joined or consolidated in the same arbitration. However, applicants, co-applicants, authorized users on a single account and/or related accounts, or corporate affiliates are here considered as one person.
What Claims are subject to arbitration? All Claims relating to these Terms and Conditions, the Account Messages, the Marketing Messages, the Messaging Service, or our relationship are subject to arbitration, including Claims regarding the application, enforceability, or interpretation of this Agreement and this arbitration provision. All Claims are subject to arbitration, no matter what legal theory they are based on or what remedy (damages, or injunctive or declaratory relief) they seek. This includes Claims based on contract, tort (including intentional tort), fraud, agency, User or Corpay’s negligence, statutory or regulatory provisions, or any other sources of law; Claims made as counterclaims, cross-claims, third-party claims, interpleaders or otherwise; and Claims made independently or with other claims. A party who initiates a proceeding in court may elect arbitration with respect to any Claim advanced in that proceeding by any other party. Claims and remedies sought as part of a class action, private attorney general or other representative action are subject to arbitration on an individual (non-class, non- representative) basis, and the arbitrator may award relief only on an individual (non-class, non-representative) basis.
Whose Claims are subject to arbitration? Not only Corpay’s and User’s, but also Claims made by or against anyone connected with Corpay or User or claiming through Corpay or User, such as any user of User’s telephone or card account, including without limitation, an employee, agent, representative, affiliated company, predecessor or successor, heir, assignee, or trustee in bankruptcy.
What time frame applies to Claims subject to arbitration? Claims arising in the past, present, or future, including Claims arising before the opening of your account, are subject to arbitration.
Broadest interpretation. Any questions about whether Claims are subject to arbitration shall be resolved by interpreting this arbitration provision in the broadest way the law will allow it to be enforced. This arbitration provision is governed by the Federal Arbitration Act (the “FAA”).
What about Claims filed in Small Claims Court? Claims filed in a small claims court are not subject to arbitration, so long as the matter remains in such court and advances only an individual (non-class, non-representative) Claim.
How does a party initiate arbitration? The party filing an arbitration must choose one of the following three arbitration firms and follow its rules and procedures for initiating and pursuing an arbitration: American Arbitration Association, JAMS, and National Arbitration Forum. Any arbitration hearing that User attends will be held at a place chosen by the arbitration firm in the same city as the U.S. District Court closest to User’s then current billing address, or at some other place to which User and Corpay agree in writing. User may obtain copies of the current rules of each of the three arbitration firms and forms and instructions for initiating arbitration by contacting them as follows: American Arbitration Association, 335 Madison Avenue, Floor 10, New York, NY 10017-4605 Web site: www.adr.orgl JAMS, 1920 Main Street, Suite 300, Irvine, CA 92610 Web site: www.jamsadr.com; National Arbitration Forum, P.O. Box 50191, Minneapolis, MN 55405 Web site: www.arbitration-forum.com. At any time User or Corpay may ask an appropriate court to compel arbitration of Claims, or to stay the litigation of Claims pending arbitration, even if such Claims are part of a lawsuit, unless a trial has begun or a final judgment has been entered. Even if a party fails to exercise these rights at any particular time, or in connection with any particular Claims, that party can still require arbitration at a later time or in connection with any other Claims.
What procedures and law are applicable in arbitration? A single, neutral arbitrator will resolve Claims. The arbitrator will be either a lawyer with at least ten years of experience or a retired or former judge, selected in accordance with the rules of the arbitration firm. The arbitration will follow procedures and rules of the arbitration firm in effect on the date the arbitration is filed unless those procedures and rules are inconsistent with these Terms and Conditions, in which case these Terms and Conditions will prevail. Those procedures and rules may limit the discovery available to User or Corpay. The arbitrator will take reasonable steps to protect confidential information if requested to do so by User or Corpay. The arbitrator will apply applicable substantive law consistent with the FAA and applicable statutes of limitations, will honor claims of privilege recognized at law, and will have the power to award to a party any damages or other relief provided for under applicable law. User or Corpay may choose to have a hearing and be represented by counsel. The arbitrator will make any award in writing and, if requested by User or Corpay, will provide a brief statement of the reasons for the award. An award in arbitration shall determine the rights and obligations between the named parties only, and only in respect of the Claims in arbitration, and shall not have any bearing on the rights and obligations of any other person, or on the resolution of any other dispute.
Who pays? Whoever files the arbitration pays the initial filing fee. If Corpay files, Corpay pays; if User files, User pays, unless User gets a fee waiver under the applicable rules of the arbitration firm. If User has paid the initial filing fee and User prevails, Corpay will reimburse User for that fee. All fees will be allocated as provided by the rules of the arbitration firm and applicable law. However, Corpay will advance or reimburse User’s fees if the arbitration firm or arbitrator determines there is good reason for requiring Corpay to do so, or if User asks us and Corpay determines there is good reason for doing so. Each party will bear the expense of that party’s attorneys, experts, and witnesses, and other expenses, regardless of which party prevails, but a party may recover any or all expenses from another party if the arbitrator, applying applicable law, so determines.
When is an arbitration award final? The arbitrator’s award is final and binding on the parties unless a party appeals it in writing to the arbitration firm within fifteen days of notice of the award. The appeal must request a new arbitration before a panel of three neutral arbitrators designated by the same arbitration firm. The panel will consider all factual and legal issues anew, follow the same rules that apply to a proceeding using a single arbitrator, and make decisions based on the vote of the majority. Costs will be allocated in the same way they are allocated for arbitration before a single arbitrator. An award by a panel is final and binding on the parties after fifteen days has passed. A final and binding award is subject to judicial review and enforcement as provided by the FAA or other applicable law.
Survival and Severability of Terms. This arbitration provision shall survive: (i) termination or changes in these Terms and Conditions, any account or account Agreement that User may have with Corpay, or the relationship between User and Corpay concerning the Messaging Service or any account; and (ii) the bankruptcy of any party. If any portion of this arbitration provision is deemed invalid or unenforceable, the remaining portions shall nevertheless remain in force. Any different agreement regarding arbitration must be agreed to in writing.

Corpay1’s Annual Modern Slavery and Human Trafficking Statement
Regarding the Fiscal Year That Ended December 31, 2021
Message from the Senior Management of Corpay Cross-Border
The year 2021 marks more than 150 years since Abraham Lincoln’s Emancipation Proclamation, and more than 180 years since the British Empire abolished slavery. Yet, so many years later the practice of slavery still lives on: The Global Slavery Index’s most recent estimate is that some 40.3 million people are enslaved by modern slavery2. The senior managers of Corpay cross border require all Corpay cross-border employees, clients, other stakeholders and the public at large to review this Corpay statement regarding modern slavery which apply formally to our UK entities and informally to all Corpay cross-border businesses. Corpay cross-border is committed to working together will all stakeholders to ensure that Corpay lives up to it commitment of zero tolerance for direct or indirect enablement of slavery and human trafficking.
Corpay is a multinational group of financial service companies providing financial solutions and the cross-border group specializes in foreign currency and global payments solutions. This Slavery and Human Trafficking Statement is the Corpay cross-border policy applicable to the identified Corpay cross-border corporations. This statement complies with the requirements of subsection 54(1) of Britain’s Modern Slavery Act 2015 (“BMSA”).
What is the BMSA? It is an Act of the Parliament of the United Kingdom. It is designed to reduce and eliminate slavery in the UK and consolidates previous offences relating to trafficking and slavery. The act extends to England and Wales. The bill was introduced to the House of Commons in draft form in October 2013. It received Royal Assent and became law on 26 March 2015.
BMSA is intended to combat slavery, servitude and forced, compulsory labour and about human trafficking, including by way of provision for the protection of victims. BMSA likewise provides for an Independent Anti-slavery Commissioner, among other measures to facilitate this goal.
Corpay complies with the spirt of BMSA in all its offices. We therefore ensure worldwide that no modern slavery, servitude, forced or compulsory labour and human trafficking (“modern slavery”) is taking place anywhere in our business or supply chain. Details of how we ensure this are set out in the seven sections that follow.
Corpay’s structure, business and supply chains
Corpay corporations are subsidiaries of Fleetcor (NYSE: FLT). Corpay cross-border ’s global headquarters are in Toronto, Canada, with additional offices in Australia, Ireland, Italy, Jersey, Singapore, Spain, UK and, the USA. Corpay is licensed to service customers based in all those countries. Corpay cross-border is a financial services business: Specifically, we provide solutions catering to our customers’ foreign currency exchange and global payments needs. Corpay cross-borders ’s business is therefore based on intangibles rather than physical inventory, and our risk of being supplied directly or indirectly by slave labour is low. Our key suppliers are our banking partners, as well as our technology partners that provide us software to help us offer enhanced trading capabilities, as well as comply with anti-money laundering and related laws. Corpay performs appropriate due diligence on both suppliers and customers. Additionally, with the exception of restricted private client business, our business is primarily B2B servicing corporate rather than consumer clientele. Between our B2B focus, and the countries that our business focuses on, we face a low overall risk of in any way facilitating modern slavery.
Corpay’s policy in relation to slavery and human trafficking
We do not tolerate or condone the practice of modern slavery in any form and Corpay cross- border group is committed to ensuring that there is no modern slavery in our business or supply chain. Our policies to implement this commitment include:
- A policy requiring employees who suspect, or become aware of, any instances of modern slavery in our business or supply chain, to report such incidents to management and /or make use of our whistle-blowing channels (as appropriate). All good faith whistleblowing is protected against retaliation.
At Corpay Cross-Border, we follow due diligence processes in relation to slavery and human trafficking in our business and supply chains
The due diligence processes we follow include the following measures:
- Due diligence relating to modern slavery carried out on suppliers identified as being at higher risk of modern slavery.
- A periodic risk assessment of our business and supply chain to identify suppliers and business engagement where the risk of modern slavery is highest.
- Scrutinizing clients both during initial on-boarding and on a transactional basis for compliance and reputational risks.
Risk assessment and management: The parts of Corpay’s business and supply chains where there is a risk of slavery and human trafficking taking place, and the steps we have taken to assess and manage that risk
Corpay engages with numerous related suppliers and services across the globe. In order to manage and mitigate any risk we periodically assess our business and supply chain in order to identify those areas in which we consider the risk of modern slavery to be the highest. At present we would consider that the risk of modern slavery occurring is somewhat higher in jurisdictions where they have less legislation against or controls of such activity. For business involving such jurisdictions we are on heightened alert for suspicious signals of possible modern slavery. Many jurisdictions with a relatively high percent of their population enslaved are for separate reasons deemed high risk countries by Corpay and therefore payments to such countries are always intensely scrutinized.
Corpay cross-border is committed to acting professionally and fairly in all of our business dealings and relationships we operate, including enforcing appropriate systems and controls. Corpay cross-border also confirms that all counterparties we do significant business with conduct all their business with integrity and that they, like us, have a zero tolerance approach to modern slavery.
Measured against appropriate performance indicators, Copay Cross-Border is effective in ensuring that slavery and human trafficking is not taking place in our business or supply chains
Corpay cross-border investigates all its counterparties who play a more than minimal role in the Corpay business to ensure the counterparties are not in breach of anti-slavery laws. Corpay cross-border likewise obtains contractual promises from all such counterparties that they comply with their legal obligations, which include laws against slavery.
Corpay cross-border stays alert to tips provided by any of the contact options described at the end of this statement. Corpay provides an initial response within five business days of receipt, and a complete response within thirty calendar days of receipt. This way we ensure raised concerns get the appropriate priority, and we maximize our ability to collaborate with others in carrying out our anti-slavery compliance.
The training and capacity building about slavery and human trafficking available to Corpay Cross-Border staff
Corpay cross border in the fiscal year ending December 31, 2017, commenced training on our policies and procedures in relation to modern slavery to Corpay cross-border staff, as part of annual refresher training in anti-money laundering compliance beginning for some entities in spring 2018. These measures ensure we are awareness of Corpay’s zero tolerance for being party in any way to slavery or human trafficking, and that this zero tolerance stance overrides any potentially competing priorities.

When we give you advice, we use a range of information to help you make an informed decision, this includes:
- how long you want to invest/hedge your money for;
- the level of your exposure to foreign exchange risk;
- your attitude to investment risk – i.e. the potential for losses and gains and the volatility of investments; and,
- explaining to you how the products we may recommend are used and their features.
Corpay does not currently take specific account of sustainability risks in its advice process because the products which we offer are designed, and used, predominantly for hedging purposes.
How we include sustainability factors in our advice process may develop over time, but this will be largely driven by the products we offer and how these products factor in sustainability risks.
