Online Checkout Terms
Effective as of October 14, 2019
online checkout allows you to make convenient and more secure online purchases with an eligible American Express® Card ("Card") wherever you see the icon. Your Card Member Agreement, as well as these Online Checkout Terms, apply to the use of your Card with online checkout.
For more information, see our Frequently Asked Questions
Your Data & Privacy
By using online checkout, you authorize and direct American Express to provide your personal information, including your Card and shipping information, to the merchant to process your transaction. American Express has no control over the privacy and data security practices of merchants; it is always your responsibility to review the merchant’s privacy policies and terms and conditions before making a purchase.
Shared Devices & Authorized Access
It is your responsibility to make sure that no one else can use your Card in online checkout. If you use online checkout on a shared device or a device that another person can access (for example, if another person knows your device passcode or has a fingerprint registered on your device), you should not select “Remember Me on this Device,” as it will allow that person to use your Card in online checkout.
You represent that you are authorized to access and use the Card account and credentials that you are using to make a purchase with online checkout. You also agree that you will not: (i) disrupt the normal flow of information or otherwise act in a manner that negatively affects other users’ ability to use online checkout; (ii) interfere with or disrupt online checkout (including, without limitation, servers or networks associated with online checkout), or (iii) violate any requirements, procedures, policies or regulations of networks associated with online checkout.
Lost, Stolen or Compromised Device
If a device on which you use online checkout is lost, stolen or compromised in any way (for example, through a virus or spyware), call us immediately at the telephone number on the back of your Card.
Online Checkout Unavailability
On rare occasions, online checkout may be down, unavailable or not working properly. It is your responsibility to ensure you have your Card account information or an alternative payment method to complete your purchase. We will not be liable to you if you cannot complete a purchase at your time of choosing, if the purchase price increases or if you miss out on a purchase.
Cancelling, Suspending or Changing Access to Online Checkout; Revisions to these Online Checkout Terms
We may cancel, suspend or change your access to online checkout at any time. We may also revise these Online Checkout Terms at any time. We will update the Effective Date above when we do so.
Complying with Laws
You must always use online checkout in accordance with applicable laws. You must not interfere or disrupt the operation of online checkout in a way that might negatively impact others or cause any loss to American Express. These Online Checkout Terms are subject to the laws of the same country as your Card Member Agreement.
