- Gift Cards
Listed Sellers are the issuer and administrator of the gift cards you purchase from them. You are purchasing a gift card issued by one of our Listed Sellers. This means that our Listed Seller, not Square, is responsible for providing goods or services in accordance with the terms of the gift card. Any future purchases using (or other redemption of) this gift card will be governed solely by the Listed Seller’s gift card’s terms which we strongly encourage you to review before purchasing. Any questions or issues you may have must be addressed directly with the Listed Seller. Gift cards involve the inherent risk that the issuing seller goes out of business or otherwise fails to honor them. If this happens, then there might not be any redemption options for your gift card. Only buy a gift card from a Listed Seller you are confident will be able to honor it. Square has no obligation to prevent and bears no liability for any service failure, fraud or loss associated with the purchase of a gift card from any Listed Sellers on this Website. We specifically disclaim all liability for any kind arising out of or relating to your purchase or use of the gift cards.
