The Fraud Shield product provides no guarantee against fraud, or other unauthorized activity nor the prevention of resulting chargebacks, and/or payment network fees. All applicable fees for use of the product and for any transactions apply. While assistance is available via email or articles, the merchant is ultimately responsible for enabling and configuring the product and its filters, rules, and/or settings to determine how the product will assess transactions. The merchant is solely responsible for assessing the risk of its transactions and implementing any risk management controls that are reasonably necessary to prevent unauthorized activity. The final responsibility for accepting or rejecting a transaction will remain with the merchant.
