OTHER IMPORTANT TERMS

1.      

Third Party Service. You understand that we do not provide bill payment services, and that all such services are provided on your behalf by the Service. The terms and conditions on which you obtain bill payment services are contained in your separate agreement with the Service.

   
2.      

Payment Information. When you elect to stop paper statements, instead of mailing your payments to us you will need to make your payments using the Service. Payments you make through the Service will be credited to your account when we receive payment from the Service. If you do not pay us electronically through the Service, the crediting of your payment may be delayed by up to five days after receipt.

   
3.      

Statement Inserts. Inserts that would be included with a statement sent by U.S. mail will not be available online at this time. If an insert contains legally required material, to ensure that you receive the necessary material, we may send you a paper copy of your statement in addition to making the statement available through the Service. Statement inserts may be available in electronic form in the future, and we may provide them to you electronically at that time.

   
4.      

Returned E-mails. If e-mails advising you of the availability of statements are returned to us, we may cancel your enrollment in the Service and resume sending you paper statements in the mail. If this happens, you will need to re-enroll in the Service with updated information.

   
5.     

SPAM Filters. We will make every effort to ensure our e-mail notifications are properly listed with all SPAM filter agencies. However, you are responsible for ensuring that any SPAM filters recognize e-mail originating from the Service.

 

6.     

Account Delinquency. We reserve the right, at any time and without notice, to stop providing your Billing Statements through the Service and provide you paper statements, if your account is not maintained in good standing.

 
7.     

Cancellation. We reserve the right, at any time and without notice, to stop providing your Billing Statement through the Service and provide your paper statements. If we do so, we will provide you with notice. Reasons for cancellation include, but are not limited to, not viewing your last three electronic statements.
