  4. Online Payments
    1. General Description of Online Payment Features. Online bill payment ("Online Payment") is a service we make available to our Account Holders through a third-party payment processor that we have selected to support this feature. You may use Online Payment to authorize a one-time payment on your Account(s). You acknowledge that the origination of electronic debit transactions from your bank account must comply with the current laws of the United States and the rules, as they may be changed from time to time, of the National Automated Clearinghouse. You also acknowledge and agree that the Online Payment feature is subject to the terms and conditions that govern the third-party payment processor’s website as well as by these Terms of Use.
    2. Regardless of the payment amount or payment effective date you schedule using Online Payment, you are responsible for complying with all of the terms and conditions of your Account, including, without limitation, your agreement to make all payments when due and in the amount required by your Loan Agreement. When using Online Payment, you should schedule your payment in amounts and with an effective date that will satisfy your payment obligations. If you do not make a payment when due and in the amount required, we will have the rights and remedies available under your Loan Agreement or as otherwise available to us at law or in equity.
    3. Payment Funds. Adequate funds must be available in the bank account where your payments are coming from when an Online Payment is processed. If a scheduled Online Payment fails due to insufficient funds for the full payment amount initiated, the Account will not receive credit for the payment. You are responsible to make timely payments for the amount owed in accordance with the Loan Agreement and these Terms of Use.
    4. Online Payment Fees. While we do not currently charge any payment transaction fee to use Online Payment, our third-party payment processor may charge you a fee to accept your payment. We do not receive any portion of the fee that the third-party payment processor may charge you. More information about the applicable fee can be found when you click on the link to the Online Payment processor’s website. In addition, you will be responsible for paying any amount you may owe other persons or companies related to the use of Online Payment or any bank account linked to Online Payment. For example, your bank may charge a fee in connection with electronic payments taken from your account with them for your Account with us.
      Nothing herein relieves you of your responsibility to pay any amount, fee or charge you may owe us under your Account.
  5. Failure to Effect Payment and Liability for Such Payments. If you attempt to make payments on your Account through this website, or through an authorized third party acting on our behalf we will use reasonable efforts to complete bill payments according to your instructions. However, neither we nor any third-party service provider acting on our behalf will be liable in any way (including, but not limited to, payment processing errors or fees) if:
    • Through no fault of ours or our authorized third party, you have insufficient funds or credit in your bank account to complete a payment transaction, or if your bank account has been closed;
    • The Online Payment feature is not working properly and you knew or were told about the malfunction before you started the transaction, or should have reasonably been able to tell that something was wrong;
    • You do not provide us with complete, accurate, and current payment and contact information, or if you otherwise do not give complete, correct, and current information to properly complete the requested transaction;
    • You do not authorize a bill payment in time for your payment to be made and credited to the Account by the due date;
    • Withdrawals from your bank account have been prohibited by an order from a court of proper jurisdiction for such things as a garnishment or other legal process;
    • We or our authorized agent reasonably believe that a transaction may be unauthorized or fraudulent;
    • Your computer, mobile phone, wireless service or any related equipment or software is, or was, not working properly;
    • Circumstances beyond our, or our authorized third party's control prevent completing an online bill payment including, but not limited to, telecommunication outages, postal strikes and other labor unrest, delays caused by payees, fires, floods, and other natural disasters, terrorist acts or war.
