1.14 Each Vendor agrees that payment made by a Planner through the Payment Services shall be considered the same as a payment made directly to the relevant Vendor providing the relevant services, and the Vendor will provide the services purchased in the relevant Contract in the agreed-upon manner as if the Vendor has received the payment directly from the Planner. Each Vendor agrees that the Company may refund the Planner in accordance with the Terms.
