16. Payment Authorization and Payment Remittance .
(a) By providing us with names and telephone numbers, email addresses and/or bank account information of Receivers to whom you wish to direct payments, you authorize us to follow the Payment Instructions that we receive through the Service.
(b) When we receive a Payment Instruction from you, you authorize us to debit your Eligible Transaction Account for the amount of any such transfer request plus any related fees in effect at the time you initiate the transfer request, and to remit funds on your behalf. You acknowledge and agree that any applicable fees will be charged when we receive a Payment Instruction from you, regardless of whether the Payment Instruction is completed. You also authorize us to credit your Eligible Transaction Account for the receipt of payments, including but not limited to those payments returned to us from Receivers to whom you sent payment(s) or canceled and returned to you because the processing of the Payment Instruction could not be completed.
(c) You acknowledge and agree that if your Payment Instructions identify an account by name and account number, the relevant financial institution may execute those Payment Instructions by reference to the account number only, even if such account number does not correspond to the account name. You further acknowledge and agree that financial institutions holding the account may choose to not investigate discrepancies between account names and account numbers and that we have no responsibility to investigate discrepancies between account names and account numbers.
(d) You agree that we will not be liable in any way for any payments that you may receive, regardless of whether you authorized the Sender to send them to you.
(e) We will use reasonable efforts to complete all your Payment Instructions properly. However, we shall incur no liability if we are unable to complete any transaction because of the existence of any one or more of the following circumstances:
1. If, through no fault of ours, the Eligible Transaction Account does not contain sufficient funds to complete the Payment Instruction or the Payment Instruction would exceed the credit limit of your overdraft account;
2. The Service is not working properly and you know or have been advised by us about the malfunction before you execute the Payment Instruction;
3. The payment is refused as described in Section 20 below;
4. You have not provided us with the correct information, including but not limited to the correct Payment Instructions or Eligible Transaction Account information, or the correct name and address or mobile phone number of the Receiver to whom you are initiating a Payment Instruction; and/or
5. Circumstances beyond our control (such as, but not limited to, fire, flood, network or system down time, issues with the financial institution or interference from an outside force) which prevent the proper execution of the Payment Instruction.
(f) It is the responsibility of the Sender and the Receiver to ensure the accuracy of any information that they enter into the Service (including but not limited to the Payment Instructions and name, address, telephone number and/or email address for the Receiver to whom you are attempting to send the Payment Instruction), and for informing us as soon as possible if they become aware that this information is inaccurate. Neither the Sender nor Receiver may use a P.O. Box as a postal address. We will make a reasonable effort to stop or recover a payment made to the wrong person or entity once informed, but we do not guarantee such stoppage or recovery and will bear no responsibility or liability for damages resulting from incorrect information entered by the Sender or Receiver.
17. Initiation of Payment Instructions. You may initiate (a) a one-time Payment Instruction to a Receiver for which processing shall be initiated immediately, (b) a one-time Payment Instruction to a Receiver for which processing shall be initiated at a later specified date up to one (1) year, and (c) a recurring series of Payment Instructions to a Receiver for which processing shall be initiated on the specified dates. Further details about each of these options can be found on the Site.
Payment Instructions initiated to Receivers are processed in two ways. You can provide all the required information about the Receiver, including his/her Eligible Transaction Account, necessary to complete a transfer of funds. Alternatively, you can provide contact information about the Receiver (including an email address and/or mobile telephone number) and the Service may contact the Receiver and request that the Receiver (i) provide information so that we may validate the identity of the Receiver at the Site and then (ii) provide Eligible Transaction Account information in order to complete the Payment Instruction (a "Two-Step Transfer"). If the Receiver maintains an Eligible Transaction Account with an institution that participates in or offers the PMoney™ service, the Receiver may access the Service at his or her financial institution's website or mobile application to complete the Payment Instruction and receive the payment.
You understand and agree that when you initiate a Payment Instruction from an Eligible Transaction Account using the Service, the processing of the Payment Instruction will begin and the debiting of your Eligible Transaction Account will occur as early as the day of such initiation. However, the payment funds will be transferred into the Receiver's Eligible Transaction Account no earlier than the next Business Day after you initiated the Payment Instruction. If you request a one-time Payment Instruction to be initiated on a specified date or a recurring series of Payment Instruction to be initiated on specified dates, then the processing of the Payment Instruction will begin on the specified date(s) and the debiting of your Eligible Transaction Account will occur as early as the specified date(s). However, the payment funds will be transferred into the Receiver's Eligible Transaction Account no earlier than the next Business Day following the specified date. In addition, in the case of all Two-Step Transfers, the deposit of the payment funds into the Receiver's Eligible Transaction Account or, receipt of a gift card, (even if debited or withdrawn from your Eligible Transaction Account) may be delayed if the Receiver has not provided the Service with certain required information such as his or her Eligible Transaction Account information or, in the case of a gift card, a valid U.S. street address. The Site may contain additional information regarding the delivery of a payment to an Eligible Transaction Account.
You acknowledge and agree that we will begin to process the requested transfer of funds once the Receiver has provided (or we otherwise obtain) all required information, and you hereby authorize and direct us to retain such funds until the earlier of such time as the Receiver has provided (or we otherwise obtain) all required information or ten (10) business days. You further acknowledge and agree that our receipt of money to be transmitted to a Receiver shall not be deemed to have occurred and our obligation to complete a transaction shall not begin until such time as the Receiver provides us with (or we otherwise obtain) all required information necessary to process the related Payment Instruction in accordance with this Agreement. Any cancellation of a Payment Instruction prior to the Receiver providing us with such information shall be subject to the provisions of Section 20, below.
18. Receiving Payments. If another person wants to initiate a Payment Instruction (in response to a PMoney™ Request or otherwise) using the Service to an Eligible Transaction Account you hold or, if you as a Requester want to initiate a PMoney™ Request, he, she or you can do that from an Eligible Transaction Account at a financial institution that participates in the PMoney™ service or at the Site. Additionally, if another person wants to send you a gift card using the Service, he or she can do that from an Eligible Transaction Account at a financial institution that participates in the Service.
You understand and agree that there may be a delay between the time you are notified of the pending Payment Instruction and the deposit of the payment funds into your Eligible Transaction Account, and you may be required to take additional steps to facilitate the deposit of the payment of funds into your Eligible Transaction Account. You authorize the Sender, the financial institution which holds the Sender's Eligible Transaction Account and us (including through the Site) to send emails to you and text messages to your mobile phone in connection with the Sender's initiation of Payment Instructions to you, and, as a Receiver, you may also receive electronic gift cards or PMoney™ Requests from others through the Service.
You acknowledge and agree that in the event that funds are transferred into your Eligible Transaction Account as a result of a Payment Instruction and it is determined that such transfer was improper because it was not authorized by the sender, because there were not sufficient funds in the sender's account, or for any other reason, then you hereby authorize us to withdraw from your Eligible Transaction Account an amount equal to the amount of funds improperly transferred to you.
If you as a Requester initiate a PMoney™ Request using the Service you acknowledge and agree that as disclosed on the Site, (a) the applicable service fee will be deducted from payments received by the you from a Sender(s), and (b) no service fee will be charged if you as the Requester do not receive any payments from the individuals to whom the PMoney™ Request is sent. Further details about the foregoing can be found on the Site. You acknowledge and agree that individuals to whom you send a PMoney™ Request may not receive, or otherwise may reject or ignore, your PMoney™ Request. We do not guarantee that you will receive any payments from individuals by initiating a PMoney™ Request.
19. Payment Methods and Amounts. There are limits on the amount of money or gift card value you can send or receive through our Service. Your limits may be adjusted from time-to-time at our sole discretion. You may log in to the Site to view your individual transaction limits. We also reserve the right to select the method in which to remit funds on your behalf, and the method to return funds to you in the event that your Eligible Transaction Account is closed or otherwise unavailable to us. These payment methods may include, but may not be limited to, an electronic or paper check payment.
20. Payment Cancellation, Stop Payment Requests and Refused Payments . Sender may cancel the initiation of a Payment Instruction or stop a Payment Instruction at any time until the processing of the Payment Instruction into the Receiver's Eligible Transaction Account has begun. Our ability to stop a Payment Instruction or recover funds associated with an unauthorized Payment Instruction will depend on the manner in which the Payment Instruction was initiated, and whether the Payment Instruction to the Receiver's Eligible Transaction Account has begun processing. Although we will make a reasonable effort to accommodate a stop payment request and to recover funds associated with an unauthorized Payment Instruction, we will have no liability for failing to do so. We may also require you to present your stop payment request or request to recover funds in writing within fourteen (14) days after contacting us. The charge for each stop payment or fund recovery request will be the current charge for such stop payment or funds recovery service as set out in the applicable fee schedule or as disclosed through the Site. Payments not claimed by a Receiver will be automatically canceled ten (10) days after the processing of the payment begins. When a Sender initiates a Payment Instruction, the Receiver is not required to accept the payment. You agree that you as a Sender will not hold us liable for any damages resulting from a Receiver's decision to accept or not to accept a payment initiated or attempted through the Service. We will, to the extent permitted by law, make reasonable attempts to return any unclaimed, refused, refunded, prohibited, or denied payment to your Eligible Transaction Account or use other reasonable efforts to return such payment to you as permitted by law.
21. Your Liability For Unauthorized Transfers . Immediately following your discovery of an unauthorized Payment Instruction, you shall communicate with us in the manner set forth in Section 7 above. You acknowledge and agree that time is of the essence such situations. If you tell us within two (2) Business Days after you discover your password or other means to access your account through which you access the Service has been lost or stolen, your liability is no more than $50.00 should someone access your account without your permission. If you do not tell us within two (2) Business Days after you learn of such loss or theft, and we can prove that we could have prevented the unauthorized use of your password or other means to access your account if you had told us, you could be liable for as much as $500.00. If your monthly financial institution statement contains Payment Instructions that you did not authorize, you must tell us at once. If you do not tell us within sixty (60) days after the statement was sent to you, you may lose any amount transferred without your authorization after the sixty (60) days if we can prove that we could have stopped someone from taking the money had you told us in time. If a good reason (such as a long trip or a hospital stay) prevented you from telling us, we may in our sole discretion extend the period.
22. Mobile Phone Users. Your phone service provider is not the provider of the Service. Users of the Service will receive text messages related to your Payment Instructions and other notices from time to time if a mobile phone number is provided. Data and messaging charges from your telecommunications provider may apply, and you are responsible for any such charges. In the event your enrolled mobile device is lost or stolen, you agree to update your enrollment information and make the appropriate changes to disable the use of such device. You understand that there are risks associated with using a mobile device, and that in the event of theft or loss, your confidential information could be compromised.
23. Taxes. It is your responsibility to determine what, if any, taxes apply to the transactions you make or receive, and it is your responsibility to collect, report and remit the correct tax to the appropriate tax authority. We are not responsible for determining whether taxes apply to your transaction, or for collecting, reporting or remitting any taxes arising from any transaction.
24. Service Fees and Additional Charges. You understand and agree that you are responsible for paying all fees associated with your use of the Service. Please refer to the fee table below for a list of applicable fees. YOU FURTHER ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT ANY APPLICABLE FEES WILL BE CHARGED REGARDLESS OF WHETHER THE PAYMENT INSTRUCTION IS COMPLETED, UNLESS THE FAILURE TO COMPLETE THE PAYMENT INSTRUCTION IS SOLELY DUE TO OUR FAULT, except for those fees that are specifically use-based, such as Request Money. There may be a charge for additional transactions and other optional services. You agree to pay such charges and authorize us to deduct the calculated amount from your designated Eligible Transaction Account for these amounts and any additional charges that may be incurred by you. Any financial fees associated with your standard deposit accounts (or other Eligible Transaction Accounts) will continue to apply. You are responsible for any and all telephone access fees and/or Internet service fees that may be assessed by your telephone and/or Internet service provider.
|Credit Card Load:||4.5%|
|Debit Card Load:||$0.99|
|Person to Person Sender Fee:||0.05%|
25. Failed Or Returned Payment Instructions. In using the Service, you are requesting us to attempt to make payments for you from your Eligible Transaction Account. If we are unable to complete the Payment Instruction for any reason associated with your Eligible Transaction Account (for example, there are insufficient funds in your Eligible Transaction Account, or the Payment Instruction would exceed the credit or overdraft protection limit of your Eligible Transaction Account, to cover the Payment Instruction), the Payment Instruction may not be completed. In some instances, you will receive a return notice from us. In each such case, you agree that:
(a) You will reimburse us immediately upon demand the amount of the Payment Instruction if we have delivered the payment to the Receiver but there are insufficient funds in, or insufficient overdraft credits associated with, your Eligible Transaction Account to allow us to complete the debit processing;
(b) For any amount not reimbursed to us within fifteen (15) days of the initial notification, a late charge equal to one and a half percent (1.5%) monthly interest or the legal maximum, whichever rate is lower, for any unpaid amounts may be imposed;
(c) You may be assessed a fee if the payment cannot be debited because you have insufficient funds in your Eligible Transaction Account, or the transaction would exceed the credit or overdraft protection limit of your Eligible Transaction Account, to cover the requested transfer, or if we cannot otherwise collect the funds from you; the fee amount will be as set forth in your fee schedule from us (including as disclosed on the Site) or your account agreement with us. You hereby authorize us to deduct these amounts from your designated Eligible Transaction Account, including by ACH debit;
(d) You will reimburse us for any fees or costs we incur in attempting to collect any amounts from you; and
(e) We are authorized to report the facts concerning the return to any credit reporting agency.
26. Address or Banking Changes. It is your sole responsibility and you agree to ensure that the contact information in your user profile is current and accurate. This includes, but is not limited to, name, physical address, phone numbers and email addresses. Changes can be made within the user interface of the Service or by contacting us as set forth in Section 7 above. We are not responsible for any payment processing errors or fees incurred if you do not provide accurate Eligible Transaction Account, Payment Instructions or contact information.
27. Refused Payments. We reserve the right to refuse to pay any Receiver. We will attempt to notify the Sender promptly if we decide to refuse to pay a Receiver designated by the Sender. This notification is not required if you attempt to make a prohibited payment under this Agreement.
28. Returned Payments. In using the Service, you understand that Receivers may reject payments or otherwise return payments. We will use reasonable efforts to complete Payment Instructions initiated through the Service.

Any payment(s) that have begun processing before the requested cancellation date will be processed by us.

(b) If you think your transaction history is incorrect or you need more information about a transaction listed in the transaction history, we must hear from you no later than sixty (60) days after the transaction in which the problem or error appears is first posted in the transaction history. You must:
1. Tell us your name;

However, if we require more time to confirm the nature of your complaint or question, we reserve the right to take up to forty-five (45) days to complete our investigation. If we decide to do this, we will provisionally credit your Eligible Transaction Account within ten (10) Business Days for the amount you think is in error. If we ask you to submit your complaint or question in writing and we do not receive it within ten (10) Business Days, we may not provisionally credit your Eligible Transaction Account. If it is determined there was no error we will mail you a written explanation within three (3) Business Days after completion of our investigation. You may ask for copies of documents used in our investigation. We may revoke any provisional credit provided to you if we find an error did not occur.

For any claim (excluding claims for injunctive or other equitable relief) where the total amount of the award sought is less than $10,000.00 USD, the party requesting relief may elect to resolve the dispute in a cost effective manner through binding non-appearance-based arbitration. If a party elects arbitration, that party will initiate such arbitration through Judicial Arbitration and Mediation Services ("JAMS"), the American Arbitration Association ("AAA"), or an established alternative dispute resolution (ADR) administrator mutually agreed upon by the parties. The parties agree that that the following rules shall apply: (a) the arbitration may be conducted telephonically, online and/or be solely based on written submissions, at the election of the party initiating the arbitration; (b) the arbitration shall not involve any personal appearance by the parties, their representatives or witnesses unless otherwise mutually agreed by the parties; (c) discovery shall not be permitted; (d) the matter shall be submitted for decision within ninety (90) days of initiation of arbitration, unless otherwise agreed by the parties, and the arbitrator must render a decision within thirty (30) days of submission; and (e) any award in such arbitration shall be final and binding upon the parties may be submitted to any court of competent jurisdiction for confirmation. The parties acknowledge that remedies available under federal, state and local laws remain available through arbitration. NO CLASS ACTION, COLLECTIVE ACTION OR OTHER REPRESENTATIVE ACTION, OR PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL ACTION, OR JOINDER OR CONSOLIDATION OF ANY CLAIM WITH A CLAIM OF ANOTHER PERSON SHALL BE ALLOWABLE IN ARBITRATION.
39. Law and Forum for Disputes. This Agreement shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the Commonwealth of Virginia, without regard to its conflicts of laws provisions. To the extent that the terms of this Agreement conflict with applicable state or federal law, such state or federal law shall replace such conflicting terms only to the extent required by law. Unless expressly stated otherwise, all other terms of this Agreement shall remain in full force and effect. You agree that any claim or dispute you may have against us (other than those which are arbitrated under Section 38, above) must be resolved by a court located in Loudoun County, Virginia. You agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of such courts for the purpose of litigating all claims or disputes unless said claim is submitted to arbitration under Section 38 of this Agreement. The United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods shall not apply to this Agreement. Both parties agree to waive any right to have a jury participate in the resolution of any dispute or claim between the parties or any of their respective Affiliates arising under this Agreement.

In addition, you waive California Civil Code §1542, which states that a general release does not extend to claims which the creditor does not know or suspect to exist in his favor at the time of executing the release, which if not known by him must have materially affected his settlement with the debtor.
42. No Waiver. We shall not be deemed to have waived any rights or remedies hereunder unless such waiver is in writing and signed by one of our authorized representatives. No delay or omission on our part in exercising any rights or remedies shall operate as a waiver of such rights or remedies or any other rights or remedies. A waiver on any one occasion shall not be construed as a bar or waiver of any rights or remedies on future occasions.
