The Account Owner will have certain rights within the account, including the right to cancel the account, delete information from the account and appoint administrators. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein, you acknowledge and agree that the term Account Owner does not convey or connote ownership rights or any other property interest in an account, even where you are designated as the Account Owner, and you further acknowledge and agree that all rights in and to your account are and shall forever be owned by and inure to the benefit of Zunaso.

Documentation may include, but is not limited to, a scanned copy of your business license, government issued photo ID, the last four digits of the credit card on file, etc. Zunaso retains the right to determine, in our sole judgment, who the rightful Account Owner is and may transfer an account to the person we consider is the rightful Account Owner.
