- PAYMENT PROCESSING SERVICES.
5.1 Company provides online, phone, mobile, and “walk-in” payment solution services for its Merchant clients. The Services provided by Company on behalf of the Merchant to facilitate your payment of Principal Payment obligations to the Merchant are different than, and separate from, the services provided to you by the Merchant directly. You acknowledge and understand that Company acts as the limited agent of the Merchant for the purpose of accepting payments from you on behalf of the Merchant. Company is not a retailer, seller, lessor, owner, property management company, or homeowner association. You further acknowledge and agree that Company is not a party to any lease, contract, or other agreement between you and the Merchant. Company does not have control of, or liability for, the services that are provided by the Merchant. Company may provide services through third-party service providers of Company. If the Merchant terminates its agreement with Company, you will no longer be able to use the payment facilitation Services.
5.2 You may have the option to make a Principal Payment to a Merchant with an electronic check from your bank account (Automated Clearing House, ACH, or e-check), with a payment card (credit card, debit card or other approved payment card), through a third party such as PayPal, and/or via cash at a third-party agent location, or as otherwise determined by the Merchant. The Merchant can choose to offer you options for one-time payments and/or automatic recurring payments. Company will facilitate your transaction according to the information you provide on the date you authorize Company to process the transaction. The Principal Payment will be credited to the Merchant, and any applicable Service Fees credited to Company. If you choose to receive a separate email notification of your payment and you provide your email, Company will send you an e-mail confirmation of your payment as well as providing notification to the Merchant.
5.3 You agree that: (i) the Personal Information provided by you to Company is complete and accurate and in the event this information should change, you will update such information in a timely manner to be complete, true and accurate; (ii) you are the User of the Company account and that you will not use the Company services for any illegal purposes; (iii) you are at least eighteen (18) years old and a resident of the United States; and (iv) you are fully authorized to use any bank account, payment card, or third party such as PayPal account, as applicable, registered in your Company account. You authorize Company, directly or through third parties, to make any inquiries it considers necessary to validate your identity. Company also has the right to ask to see identifying documents such as your driver license and other documentation at any time as necessary to validate your identity.
5.4 Company may charge you a Service Fee for your use of the payment processing Service(s) in accordance with this Agreement and Company’s agreement with your Merchant. The Service Fees are charged for the payment processing Services provided to you including providing additional payment channels (such as Internet, telephone, walk-in payment locations) and the services involved in facilitating payment of your Principal Payment on behalf of the Merchant. Payment processing Services are different than, and separate from, the services provided to you directly by the Merchant and for which you are making a Principal Payment(s), (e.g. lease payment, homeowner association dues, security deposit, application fee, etc). While the Company system displays all related Service Fees in a visible location for you, you will receive a final confirmation page with the transaction amount including the payment processing Service Fee and will be given the opportunity to either “Submit” or “Cancel” the transaction. In the event that your bank returns your payment for Non-Sufficient Funds (“NSF”), you authorize Company to assess and process an automatic NSF Fee, as permitted by applicable law, to the same account from which your payment was initiated. In the event that the NSF fee charged by Company is returned and/or generates additional fees assessed by your bank, you assume all responsibility for such fees.
5.5 You hereby authorize Company to debit your account, including the Principal Amount owed to the Merchant and payment processing Service Fees, from your bank account (via ACH) or charge your payment card or charge your third party account (including PayPal) on behalf of the Merchant for any of the transactions you submit. You agree that your submission of a transaction constitutes your authorization to Company to debit your account, or charge your card or third party account, based on the information you have provided.
5.6 You acknowledge and agree that, subject to banking and card association rules and regulations, upon payment to Company by you for payment due to the Merchant, such payment obligation to the Merchant is considered paid and extinguished. Payment is deemed made by you at the time at which Company receives the funds (as agent of the Merchant). In the event that any payment received by Company is not delivered to the Merchant as described in this Section, the Merchant will have recourse only against Company in connection with the payment.
5.7 You can request a refund through Company for a payment processed through your Company account if the payment is still processing to the Merchant and not yet settled to the Merchant account. Once the funds have settled to the Merchant’s deposit account, you must request a refund directly through the Merchant. All transaction cancellations or refunds through Company must be requested by logging into your Company account and clicking on “Help” and then clicking on the “Contact Support” button. The request must include the transaction number and amount to be refunded. If you do not have Log-In Information the refund request must be submitted to the Merchant for processing. Refund requests through Company are fulfilled only during Company business hours Monday through Friday 7:00 AM-5:00 PM Pacific Time.
5.8 For accounts that have been set up with the fixed recurring payment option (“Fixed AutoPay”), Company will debit your designated account for the authorized amount of the Principal Amount and the Service Fee on the designated day each month until the Fixed AutoPay is cancelled. Company reserves the right to increase its Service Fee for Fixed AutoPay transactions in accordance with applicable laws and regulations, however the fee will appear on the payment authorization page for you to see prior to your approval of payment. For accounts that have been set up with the variable automatic recurring payment option (“Variable AutoPay”), the Service Fee may change based on the principal amount of the transaction.
5.9 Credit Reporting: Users who opt in to Company’s credit reporting service authorize Company to report their rent payment data, such as details of payments and personal validation information including but not limited to name, social security number and address, (collectively, “Rent Payment Data”) to one or more Consumer Reporting Agencies (“Agencies” or “Agency”). At this time, Company reports to two Agencies, Experian and TransUnion. Even if a User opts in to such reporting, Company will report Rent Payment Data only for participating Merchants.
Importantly, Company is not an Agency and has no control over how reported Rent Payment Data will be used by the Agencies and makes no representation that reporting such data will improve your credit history, credit report, or credit score, which are maintained and provided solely by the Agencies. Once Rent Payment Data is transmitted to an Agency, you acknowledge that the Agency will obtain an ownership interest in that data. You should review the legal terms and conditions for the Agencies credit reporting businesses to understand how they collect, store, manage, use, modify, disseminate and/or distribute such data. You agree to hold Company harmless against any claims in connection with an Agency’s use or management of any Rent Payment Data that Company has provided to the Agencies in accordance with the federal Fair Credit Reporting Act (“FCRA”).
You acknowledge that you are responsible for providing Company with accurate, complete, and consistent Rent Payment Data. You further acknowledge that your credit report, credit history or credit score maintained by the Agencies may be negatively affected if: (i) you provide Company with incomplete or inaccurate Rent Payment Data; or (ii) the reporting of your Rent Payment Data by Company is inconsistent, inaccurate, or terminated. Company is not liable for any claims, charges, demands, damages or adverse impacts on or regarding your credit report, credit history, or credit score maintained by the Agencies if: (i) you stop using Company’s credit reporting service; (ii) you provide inaccurate or incomplete Rent Payment Data to Company; or (iii) you cause reporting to be made inconsistently. Company will provide the Agencies with the Rent Payment Data that you provide to Company and/or Rent Payment Data collected by Company. Unless otherwise limited by FCRA and applicable law, in no event shall Company be responsible for any claims, costs, expenses or damages resulting from incomplete or inaccurate reporting.
You can: (i) notify Company of a dispute concerning incomplete or inaccurate Rent Payment Data; or (ii) submit an identity theft report, if you have experienced an identity theft event, by writing to:
