This includes using the third-party payment processing platform ("Payment Processor") we choose, and following any other rules we specify. You may not circumvent your payment obligations to us by soliciting payment from a Subscriber outside of Flowjin or by using any alternative method to collect subscription payments. This includes receiving payments for your Flow through links to Paypal or a separate Patreon page. You agree to notify us immediately if you receive any such offer or solicitation to circumvent your payment obligations by contacting [email protected].
