If Spotio is required to pay any such tax, duty, fee, or charge, or to withhold any amount from monies due to Spotio from Customer pursuant to these Terms, Customer will promptly reimburse Spotio any such amounts. All transactions will be executed using a third party payment processor (“Payment Processor”), and may be subject to a service charge. Customer will be asked to provide customary billing information such as name, billing address and payment information. Customer hereby authorizes Spotio to debit, through a Payment Processor, Customer’s payment card or user account in the amount of the Fees.
7. THIRD PARTY INTERACTIONS
