19. DIRECT DEPOSIT OPTION
19.1. Direct Deposit Request. Customer or Customers clients, as appropriate, may request direct deposit ("Direct Deposit") of employees' or contractors' paychecks, or Customer may request electronic payment of payroll taxes. If Customer select the Client Retail Services, clients who use DataSetGo Online Payroll Basic may apply for direct deposit of employees' paychecks or electronic payment of federal payroll taxes; clients who use DataSetGo Online Payroll Enhanced may also apply for Direct Deposit of contractors' paychecks. We reserve the right to delay or decline processing Direct Deposit transactions (i) that significantly differ, in our sole opinion, from typical payment activity or volume of payment transactions, (ii) for which sufficient funds are not available in the payment account, (iii) that are otherwise in violation of this Agreement or the ACH rules (described below), or (iv) that, in our sole opinion, may pose a risk of loss to us.
19.2. Sign Up/Activation. The Direct Deposit service will begin after we receive and process all the information, including any credit card or bank account information, requested by the sign up form. Processing Customers and Customers clients' information may include validating information such as a PIN, submitting sign up information to third parties such as a bank, credit reporting agencies and/or other agencies we may use to validate the identity and/or credit history of the individual making payment. We may also receive and review credit or similar reports on Customer’s business and its principals and on Customer’s clients provided by such third parties. Therefore the information Customer provide to us must be accurate and complete or direct deposits may not be made, and we will be unable to perform the Direct Deposit service for Customer or Customers clients.
19.3. Use and Restrictions. Customer may use Direct Deposit only for payroll direct deposits. Customer may fund Customer’s paychecks to Customers employees and contractors, and to Customers clients' employees and contractors, as authorized by this Agreement ("Payments") by initiating electronic withdrawals within the Service from the demand deposit account of the financial institution Customer identified on the sign up form ("Customers Account") or from the demand deposit account Customer or Customers clients identified for Customers client's Direct Deposit services. Customer and/ or Customer’s clients may identify other financial institutions in the future to fund the direct deposit payroll payments to Customers employees and contractors. Under certain circumstances we may use wire draw down requests or other funding methods (collectively "Debits") to fund Customers and/or Customers clients' payroll direct deposits. Debits may also be initiated to pay servicing fees, e.g. NSF's and reversals. When Customer send Payments over the Internet Customer will receive confirmation that the Payments were sent. However, a confirmation does not mean that Customer’s submission of Payments was error-free. If errors are detected later we may be unable to complete the submission of Customers Payments. We will make reasonable efforts to tell Customer if we cannot complete Customers Payments. Payments taking place after certain processing deadlines may be considered to occur on the next business day.
Special processing fees may apply to some Payments. We may establish certain security limits on Payment submissions we process, such as a maximum number or dollar amount of Payments. We may change these limits from time to time and may choose not to disclose them.
19.4. Customer’s Responsibilities. Customer must input all required Payment information on the Services website and approve the transaction no later than 5:00 p.m. Pacific Time on the date indicated on the website. Customer may not cancel or change transactions after that time. Customer must send us Customers Payments before the daily cut-off time in order for them to be processed on that day. Payments sent after the cut-off time may be processed the following banking day. Debits will be charged to Customers Account four business banking days before the pay date for Customers first payroll and one banking day thereafter, before the pay date of the applicable payroll and Customer must have sufficient funds in Customers Account to fulfill Customers Payments on that date. After that, no interest or earnings will accrue to Customer, even if we retain amounts withdrawn for payroll taxes until they are due to the appropriate payroll tax agencies Customer are solely responsible for verifying that all Payments have been received and are accurate. It is Customer’s responsibility to keep any payroll, tax or other records Customer may need for reference, even though we may have informatio’n about the Payments in our files.
19.5. Authorization and Agreement for Direct Payments (ACH Debits). Customer acknowledge and agree for itself and, if applicable, for Customer’s clients that (i) Payments will typically go through the Automated Clearing House (the "ACH"), (ii) Customers Payments will be governed by the ACH rules, and (iii) the origination of ACH transactions to Customers Account must comply with the provisions of U.S. law. Customer must indemnify and defend us against any claims or lawsuits, including attorneys' fees that arise from or result from Customers Payments. If we tell Customer that an account number or other information concerning Customers Payments has changed, this corrected information must be used to initiate future Payments. Customer authorize us to (a) initiate debit entries to Customers Account and/or to Customers clients' accounts and to debit the same to such accounts, and (b) send Payments electronically or by any other commercially accepted method to Customers Account and/or to Customers clients' accounts. Customer authorize and direct the depository financial institution that holds Customers Account and/or Customers clients' accounts to (x) charge each Debit to Customers Account and/or to Customers clients' accounts and pay that amount to us, and (y) respond to inquiries from us regarding Customer’s information and Customers Account and/or to Customers clients' accounts. This authorization will remain in full force and effect until we have received written notification from Customer of its termination in such time and in such manner as to afford us and the depository financial institution that holds Customers Account and/or Customers clients' accounts a reasonable opportunity to act on it
19.6. Representations and Warranties. Customer represent and warrant that (i) each person or entity to whom Customer send Payments has authorized the Payments and any necessary adjustments to be applied to his, her or its account, (ii) at the time any Payment is made Customer have no actual knowledge that the authorization has been revoked or terminated, (iii) Customers Payments comply with the laws that apply to them, (iv) that Customer have authorization to make withdrawals to Customers Account and (vi) that all the information Customer provided to enter into the Agreement is true and correct. Customer warrant everything that we must warrant as an ACH Originator, and Customer accept any liability Customer or we may incur which is caused by Customers payment transactions.
Customer agree that we may request, obtain and use credit reports and other information about Customer from third party sources.
19.7. Customers Account. We may refuse to process Customers Payments if we reasonably believe that Customers Account and/or Customers clients' accounts balance is insufficient to cover the dollar amount of the Payments or for any other reason we deem reasonable. If any amount debited against Customer and/or Customers clients is dishonored or returned for any reason, such as, but not limited to, nonsufficient funds, account closed, inability to locate account, or reversal by Customer and/or Customers bank, we may; a) reverse any corresponding credit issued to us, Customer, Customers employees or any other party without liability to Customer or any other party, (b) reverse direct deposit transactions, (c) refuse to perform further Services, (d) apply any money currently held by us to any amount owed to us by Customer or by Customers clients, (e) charge Customer and/or Customers clients a one-time insufficient funds penalty fee for each occurrence, (f) report this information to any and all credit agencies and/or financial institutions and/or (g) immediately terminate this Agreement. We may assess and collect interest at the rate of one and one-half percent (1.5%) per month (18% per annum) on any amounts owing and unpaid ten (10) days after demand. If further collection attempts are required, all of our collections costs, including any costs associated with termination of this Agreement and including but not limited to, attorney fees, where permitted by law, will be charged to Customer and/or Customers clients. This section shall, to the extent applicable, survive the termination of this Agreement.
19.8. 7.8 General. We may review Customers and/or Customers clients' use of the Direct Deposit service, Customers and/or Customers clients' credit status or other factors periodically, including submitting Customers and/or Customers clients' information to third parties such as banks, credit reporting agencies and/or other agencies used to validate identity and/or credit history, and/or reviewing credit or similar reports on Customers and/or Customers clients' business and its principals provided by these third parties. We may terminate Customers and/or Customers clients' participation in the Direct Deposit service after such a review. If Customer and/or Customers clients (i) default in the payment of any sum of money hereunder, (ii) default in the performance of any other obligations under this Agreement, or (iii) commit an act of Bankruptcy or become the subject of any proceeding under the Bankruptcy Act or become insolvent, or if any substantial portion of Customers and/or Customers clients' property becomes subject to levy, seizure, assignment, application for sale for or by any creditor or governmental agency, then, in any such event, we, at our option, may, upon written notice thereof, (a) terminate the Agreement, (b) declare all amounts due and to become immediately due and payable and/or (c) require Customer and/or Customers clients' to deposit an amount equal to its average future monthly or annual processing charges to prepay for any future processing.
