Terms and Conditions

These terms and conditions are designed to provide you information on the services we provide and outline important conditions which apply to your using this service. The Payment Gateway service is provided by SimplePayments and various third party vendors for the processing of credit card and/or online check transactions. By processing this payment transaction, you and any person you authorize to perform functions on your account, agree to these terms and conditions.
  1. Erroneous Instructions. If we receive a payment instruction authorized by you and the instruction is erroneous in any way, we shall have no obligation or liability for the error.
  2. Transaction Limitations. Certain types of accounts have limits on the numbers or amount of transfers or withdrawals that may be made in a given time period. Your bank or credit card company may refuse transfers which would exceed such limits, so we recommend you check with your bank to determine what limitations are imposed on withdrawals from any account. If we are not able to charge the amount required to cover an authorized payment and any fees from your account, we will not be able to make the payment you have authorized, and will not be held liable for any costs, damages, etc., caused by the failure to make the payment. We have no obligation to try to debit an account for a specific payment more than once.
  3. Payments by Online Check. Please allow 1-2 business days for online check payments to be processed by your bank. Online check payments rejected by your bank for any reason are subject to a $25 returned check fee.
  4. HELOC or Credit Card Checks. Do not use home equity line of credit checks or checks issued by your credit card company for online check payments. Financial institutions typically will not honor "credit card" checks used electronically. The payment will be returned and you may be charged a returned check fee of $25.
  5. Business Hours. SimplePayments gateways operate 24 hours per day, 7 days per week, and 365 days per year. We will attempt to submit your transaction immediately upon the initiation of a request. Business hours/days for financial institutions including banks and credit card transaction processing companies are typically Monday through Friday, excluding legal holidays. Payments made on weekends and legal holidays will generally be posted the following business day.
  6. Authorized Users. If there are other authorized users on your credit account(s), you hereby authorize each of them to use this service. Any signer on such accounts is authorized to make payments.
  7. Electronic Disclosures. We are required to provide you with certain disclosures and notices which are mandated by various laws and rules. You agree to receive all such disclosures electronically, which in most cases will be done at our web site or the web sites of our vendors.
  8. Confidentiality. We will never sell any personally identifiable information to a third party for marketing purposes without your consent. We will only disclose information to third parties about your account or the transfers or payments you make:

    • if lawfully required or,
    • if you request or authorize it.
  9. Your Liability. You agree to promptly review and verify all transactions either on our Internet page or through the monthly statements received from your bank and/or credit card issuer. If your account statement shows transactions by us that you did not authorize, contact your bank or credit card issuer immediately.
  10. Our Liability. If we do not complete a payment which you have authorized in a timely manner, in accordance with the terms and conditions herein, we will be liable for correcting the payment. We will not be liable for any damages in excess of the convenience fee. We will NOT be liable when:
    • Through no fault of ours, your account does not contain sufficient balances available for us to charge the account in the amount of the payment due.
    • The web site or other systems are not working properly based on circumstances beyond our reasonable control.

Any party who is entitled to a refund and who paid using a SimplePayments gateway will not receive a refund on any portion of convenience fees paid.
  13. Change in Terms. It is possible that our terms and conditions may change over time. We will post any changes on our web site and will send you any legally required notice. Prior notice may not be given, however, where an immediate change is necessary for security purposes.
