Federal regulations implemented pursuant to the Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act of 2006 require us to notify our commercial customers that we are prohibited from processing any restricted gambling transactions on their behalf. Restricted transactions involve the collection of Internet bets or wagers for businesses engaged in Internet gambling transactions (e.g., online gambling casinos) that are made by persons participating in unlawful Internet gambling transactions. For instance, we are prohibited from processing any transactions by check, credit or debit card, electronic funds transfer, wire transfer or similar device for credit to a commercial account if the transaction involves the receipt of an unlawful bet or wager made through the Internet. A bet or wager is unlawful if it violates any applicable Federal or State law in the State or Tribal lands in which the bet or wager is initiated, received or otherwise made.
