2.10. Payments to You
If we owe you a payment resulted in a partnership or availing any of your service offerings, then you agree to timely and accurately provide us with any information we need to get that payment to you. You are responsible for any taxes and charges you may incur as a result of this payment to you. You must also comply with any other conditions we place on your right to any payment.
