2. SCOPE OF TERMS
2.1. As used herein, "Deluxe", "we", "us", "our" refers to Deluxe and its affiliates, representatives and service providers. "You" or "your" refers to the person using the Services, whether as a Sender or Receiver, individually or on behalf of any business entity you are representing, if any. "eCheck" refers to a check payment initiated by a Sender and electronically delivered to a designated Receiver for printing and deposit. "eDeposit" refers to an eCheck indorsed, assigned and transferred to our bank partner for clearing and collection to facilitate an electronic transfer of the proceeds to the Receiver's bank account. "Bank" means the banking institution holding a Senders enrolled Checking Account(s). "Checking Account" means any U.S.-based checking account designated and owned by the Sender or the business entity Sender is representing that has been verified by us. "Receiver" has the meaning set forth in Section 5 below. "Sender" has the meaning set forth in Section 4 below.
2.2. These Terms govern the availability and use of the Services. The Services are offered only to residents of the United States who can form legally binding contracts under applicable law. Without limiting the foregoing, the Services are not offered to minors. Your use of the Services is governed by the Terms contained herein and the following, which are considered part of these Terms: (i) any other terms, conditions or instructions appearing or presented on a screen when enrolling for, accessing, or using any of the Services; (ii) our rules, procedures and policies, as amended from time to time, that apply to any of the Services; and (iii) state and federal laws and regulations, as applicable. Each Checking Account a Sender enrolls in connection with the Services will also continue to be subject to any other terms and conditions provided by Sender's Bank, and Sender agrees to be bound by and comply with such other terms and conditions.
2.3. UNLESS OTHERWISE SPECIFIED, THESE TERMS SHALL APPLY WHETHER YOU ARE USING THE SERVICE AS A SENDER OR RECEIVER.
3. FEES FOR USING SERVICE
3.1. FEES PAYABLE BY SENDERS. Applicable fees for using the Services to send eChecks will be disclosed to you when you enroll for the Services as a Sender. Any applicable fees will be charged regardless of whether the Services were used by Sender, except for fees that are specifically use-based. There may be a charge for additional transactions and other optional services. Sender agrees to pay such charges via an eCheck made payable to us pursuant to our instructions. Any fees associated with Senders' Checking Accounts will continue to apply. Sender is responsible for any and all telephone access fees and/or Internet service fees that may be assessed by Sender's telephone and/or Internet service provider while using the Service.
3.2. FEES PAYABLE BY RECEIVERS. Deluxe does not currently assess any fees to Receivers of eChecks who utilize the standard eCheck print option. However, if a Receiver elects to use an alternative funding option made available by us to receive payment on an eCheck, fees may apply depending on which funding option the Receiver selects. Such fees will be disclosed at the time such alternative funding option, if any, is presented to the Receiver. Receiver is responsible for any and all telephone access fees and/or Internet service fees that may be assessed by Receiver's telephone and/or Internet service provider while using the Service. In addition, Receivers may be subject to additional fees if an eDeposit is rejected because the account information provided by the Receiver is not accurate (see Section 5.3).
4. TERMS APPLICABLE TO eCHECK SENDERS
The following terms apply if you use the Service to send a payment via eCheck ("Senders"):
4.1. You may use the Services to send eChecks to Receivers, as permitted by normal operation of the Website or the Mobile App, to be drawn against your eligible Checking Accounts. eChecks must be drawn on financial institutions located in the United States and must be payable in U.S. Dollars to Receivers in the United States. To send an eCheck, you will need to provide the Receiver's name and email address. You agree that you are responsible for complying with all applicable laws related to your use of the Services, regardless of the purpose of the use.
4.2. Currently, our Service may be used solely by businesses to send eChecks to other businesses or consumers. By using the Service to send eChecks, you represent and warrant to us that the Services will be used solely for business purposes.
4.3. You will need an eCheck Sender Account to create and send eChecks using the Services. You will be asked to create an eCheck Sender Account as part of your enrollment for the Services as a Sender. An "eCheck Sender Account" is a notional account maintained for recordkeeping purposes only and cannot be used to store or maintain any funds. The eCheck Sender Account allows Senders to send eChecks, void eChecks, view and export eCheck remittance information, and review the status and history of eChecks originating from their account. You may create your own eCheck Sender Account, or it may be assigned to you by an Administrator acting on behalf of a Sender. If you are using an eCheck Sender Account assigned to you by an Administrator, your Administrator may be able to access or disable your eCheck Sender Account. You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your username and password for your eCheck Sender Account. It is advisable to change your password regularly (by following the instructions on our Website) in order to reduce the risk of a security breach. We cannot and will not be held responsible for the use, misuse, or disclosure by you to others of your username, password or eCheck Sender Account. You must immediately tell us if you discover your user name, password or other means to access your eCheck Sender Account has been lost or stolen so that we can disable your eCheck Sender Account. If you learn of any unauthorized use of your username, password or eCheck Sender Account, change the password on your eCheck Sender Account and contact us immediately at the phone number above. You agree that it is your sole responsibility to ensure that the contact information in your eCheck Sender Account is current and accurate at all times. This includes, but is not limited to, name, address, phone numbers, checking account information and email addresses. Changes can be made either within our Website or by contacting us at the phone number above. All changes made are effective immediately. We are not responsible for any transfer processing errors or fees incurred if you do not provide accurate bank account or contact information.
4.4. When you initiate an eCheck as part of your use of the Services, you are also inherently granting all rights and licenses necessary for the Receiver (or its designated representative) to act as your agent for purposes of continuing the processing of the initiated eCheck and for the Receiver (or its designated representative) to print a physical representation of the eCheck (i.e., a paper check) on your behalf.
4.5. You understand and agree that each initiated eCheck is registered with a fraud prevention component of the Services. This fraud prevention component allows any party with an internet connection to verify data on the initiated eCheck. Deluxe does not publish any information about your eCheck, only whether data supplied by a verifying party pertains to an eCheck registered with us.
4.6. You may request to void an eCheck through the Website or the Mobile App provided the eCheck has not already been retrieved by the Receiver. Although we will make every effort to accommodate a void request, we will have no liability for failing to do so. We may not have a reasonable opportunity to act on any void request prior to the eCheck being retrieved. To stop payment on an eCheck that has already been retrieved by the Receiver, you must either contact the Receiver of the eCheck directly and request that they return or destroy all representations of the initiated eCheck in their possession, or, to the extent that the Receiver has already presented the eCheck to a banking institution for settlement, you should institute a standard stop payment order with your Bank. You should also contact us by telephone so that we can attempt to designate all attempts to verify this eCheck as invalid. You are responsible for all charges from your Bank connected with initiated eChecks or attempts to stop payment on an eCheck.
4.7. You should check your transaction history for your Checking Accounts and eCheck Sender Accounts regularly. If your transaction history shows an eCheck that you did not authorize, it is your obligation to contact us and your Bank immediately. Except as otherwise described in these Terms, we are not liable for any damages or loss arising from someone accessing your eCheck Sender Account or Checking Accounts through the Services without your permission.
4.8. In using the Services, you are initiating a check-based payment from your Checking Account. Before making a payment, you must ensure sufficient funds are available in your Checking Account. If we are unable to complete an initiated eCheck for any reason associated with your designated Checking Account (for example, there are insufficient funds in your Checking Account to cover the eCheck), the eCheck may not be processed. You are responsible for all returned item charges, overdraft charges and other bank fees imposed by the Bank holding your Checking Accounts associated with any eChecks initiated on your behalf using our Services.
4.9. The eChecks you initiate are dependent upon several things, including the accuracy of your Checking Account information and the accuracy of the Receiver information. You must ensure that the payment details you enter for each eCheck are correct and complete. We will not be responsible for any errors in the information that you provide to us. You are solely responsible for the accuracy of the information you provide in connection with eChecks you initiate with the Services.
4.10. We reserve the right to refuse to initiate any eCheck that you may request using the Services for any reason, at our sole discretion. We will notify you promptly if we decide to refuse to continue initiation of an eCheck through the Services. This notification is not required if you attempt to make a prohibited transfer under these Terms.
4.11. You represent and warrant that: (1) no intended recipients of eChecks initiated by you are or will be located in a country that is subject to a U.S. Government embargo, or designated by the U.S. Government as a "terrorist supporting" country; (2) your intended recipients of eChecks initiated by you are not listed on any U.S. Government list of prohibited or restricted parties; (3) you own all right, title and interest in and to, or have permission to use, all trademarks, service marks or logos or other intellectual property or proprietary rights that you may upload as part of your use of the Service; and (4) your use of the Service will not damage or disrupt any application or service provided under these Terms, including but not limited to: the introduction of any viruses, Trojans, time-bombs, spyware and other devices.
4.12. If you are using our Services on behalf of a business entity, the individual that enrolls initially for our Services on behalf of the business entity ("Administrator") will have administrative authority to designate other authorized users to access the Services on behalf of the business entity (each an "Authorized User"). For each Authorized User, the Administrator may assign access privileges - transactional or inquiry only - for each Checking Account associated with the eCheck Sender Account established by the Administrator. If an Authorized User is provided transactional authority to initiate eCheck transactions, we shall be authorized to act upon and shall not be liable for any such transaction instructions. The Administrator may add or delete Authorized Users of the Services or modify access privileges for Authorized Users at any time through the Administrators eCheck Sender Account. Such requests will not take effect until we have had a reasonable period of time to act upon such requests. If you permit another person to access the Services, we will treat this as if you have authorized such use, and you will be liable for all transactions and fees incurred by such use.
4.13. Deluxe offers Senders access to plugins for QuickBooks, Microsoft Excel, and Microsoft Dynamic GP (together with Microsoft Excel, the "Microsoft Software", and together with QuickBooks, "Accounting Software"), which allow Senders to automatically add eCheck transaction information into their Accounting Software. Use of any such plugin shall be subject to any additional terms presented to you at the time you request to download such plugin.
5. TERMS APPLICABLE TO eCHECK RECEIVERS
The following terms apply if you use the Services to receive a payment via eCheck (a "Receiver").
5.1. As a Receiver of an eCheck, you may be offered options for how you receive and retrieve funds sent to you via eCheck. Options include:
Regardless of how you elect to receive funds related to an eCheck, you agree to present the eCheck only once for payment. You agree and acknowledge that multiple presentments of an eCheck constitutes fraud and you agree to refrain from any such activity. You agree to not alter or conceal any portion of the eCheck item you receive, including any comments, coding, instructions or disclaimers accompanying your eCheck. These instructions can include, but are not limited to, a disclaimer regarding your authorization as the Receiver to act as the Sender's agent for purposes of printing any physical representation of the eCheck.
Printing an eCheck. If you decide to print your eCheck, you agree that you will print the eCheck in conformance with any check printing instructions we provide to you. We recommend printing your eCheck in color ink using a standard laser copier/printer and white laser paper.
eDeposit - Instant Funds powered by Hyperwallet. For a fee, you may elect to authorize us to indorse, assign and transfer the eCheck on your behalf to our bank partner for clearing and collection, and have the resulting funds transferred by Hyperwallet via debit card to an eligible bank account designated by you. Note that you must have a debit card in order to use Instant Funds. We will collect certain information from you when you elect to use eDeposit, including your name, address and date of birth. We will provide the means for you to give your debit card information directly to Hyperwallet. We will not see, store or have access to the debit card information you provide to Hyperwallet to facilitate the transfer of funds to your bank account. You are solely responsible for the accuracy of the information you provide in connection with your use of the eDeposit services. Neither we nor Hyperwallet or our bank partner are responsible for any errors or fees incurred if you do not provide accurate bank or other information, including your debit card number. We reserve the right to refuse to provide eDeposit services that you may request at any time, in our sole discretion.
5.2. As a Receiver of an eCheck, you will be provided the option of establishing an eCheck Receiver Account. In some cases, depending on the type of eCheck payment or funding options made available to you (such as an eDeposit service), you may be required to establish an eCheck Receiver Account to retrieve your eCheck and view accompanying remittance information. We will notify you of this requirement, if applicable. An eCheck Receiver Account will automatically be established for all Senders of eChecks upon completion of the Senders enrollment for the Services. An "eCheck Receiver Account" is a notional account maintained for recordkeeping purposes only and cannot be used to store or maintain any funds. The eCheck Receiver Account allows Receivers to review and download the status and history of their eChecks and accompanying remittance information and take action to retrieve their eChecks. You may create your own eCheck Receiver Account, or it may be assigned to you by an Administrator acting on behalf of a Receiver. If you are using an eCheck Receiver Account assigned to you by an Administrator, your Administrator may be able to access or disable your eCheck Receiver Account. You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your username and password for your eCheck Receiver Account. It is advisable to change your password regularly (by following the instructions on our Website) in order to reduce the risk of a security breach. You should check your transaction history for your bank account and eDeposit Receiver Account regularly. If you see a deposit that you did not authorize of if you do not see an eDeposit that should be there, it is your obligation to contact us immediately. We cannot and will not be held responsible for the use, misuse, or disclosure by you to others of your username, password or eCheck Receiver Account. You must immediately tell us if you discover that your user name, password, or other means to access your eCheck Receiver Account have been lost or stolen so that we can disable your eCheck Receiver Account. If you learn of any unauthorized use of your username, password, or eCheck Receiver Account, change the password on your eCheck Receiver Account and contact us immediately at the phone number above. You agree that it is your sole responsibility to ensure that the contact information in your eCheck Receiver Account is current and accurate at all times. This includes, but is not limited to, name, address, phone numbers, bank account information, and email addresses. Changes can be made within our Website. All changes made are effective immediately.
5.3 Use of eDeposit (Instant Funds powered by Hyperwallet). As a Receiver, you may be offered the option to have us indorse, assign and transfer the eCheck on your behalf to our bank partner for clearing and collection, and have Hyperwallet credit the resulting funds to your bank account via your debit card. There is a fee for using eDeposit services. The fee will be deducted from the amount of the eCheck and a portion will be paid to our partner bank for its services in clearing the check.
b. Through your eCheck Receiver Account, you will be able to submit eChecks for eDeposit. If your eCheck is approved for eDeposit, you will not be required or permitted to print the Check. Rather, you will appoint Deluxe as your agent to print the eCheck, indorse, assign and transfer the eCheck on your behalf to our partner bank for clearing and settlement. Hyperwallet will credit the resulting funds, less applicable fees, to your bank account via your debit card.
c. Most Instant Funds transactions will be funded within 30 minutes of your election to use the Instant Funds service, but in some cases it could take up to two business days. The timing of the availability of funds associated with your initial use of eDeposit will generally be indicative of the timing of funds availability for future eDeposit transactions. Once an eCheck has been approved for eDeposit and funds are credited to your designated bank account, they are "guaranteed" and the money is yours to keep and safe to spend, even if the check bounces or is returned unpaid for any reason, other than any fraudulent conduct by you.
d. In addition, you understand and agree to the following:

5.4 You represent and warrant that: (1) your debit card is associated with an account held at a U.S. financial institution; (2) you are not listed on any U.S. Government list of prohibited or restricted parties; and (3) your use of the Service will not damage or disrupt any application or service provided under these Terms, including but not limited to: the introduction of any viruses, Trojans, time-bombs, spyware and other devices.
5.5 If you are using our Services to receive eChecks on behalf of a business entity, the individual that enrolls initially for our Services on behalf of the business entity ("Administrator") will have administrative authority to designate other authorized users to access the Services on behalf of the business entity (each an "Authorized User"). For each Authorized User, the Administrator may assign access privileges transactional or inquiry only - for the bank account associated with the eDeposit Account established by the Administrator. If an Authorized User is provided transactional authority to initiate eDeposit transactions, we shall be authorized to act upon and shall not be liable for any such transaction instructions. The Administrator may add or delete Authorized Users of the Services or modify access privileges for Authorized Users at any time through the Administrators eDeposit Receiver Account. Such requests will not take effect until we have had a reasonable period of time to act upon such requests. If you permit another person to access the Services, we will treat this as if you have authorized such use, and you will be liable for all transactions and fees incurred by such use.
