Acceptance of Terms and Conditions Use
This site (the “Site”) and all of its content, functionality and services, are offered and hosted by ClearGage, LLC (“ClearGage,” “we,” “us,” “our”). The Site may include, but is not limited to, on-line services that enable you to access billing, payment and other account information that facilitates making online electronic payments to your Provider. As used herein, the term “Provider” means the entity, corporation, person or other third-party who has, for your convenience, requested that the Site be made available to you.
THE FOLLOWING TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF USE (THE “AGREEMENT”) GOVERN YOUR USE OF THE SITE AS PROVIDED BY US AND OUR APPLICATION ADMINISTRATORS AND LICENSORS AND ACCESSED THROUGH THIS SITE.
Changes to Terms and Conditions Use
We may revise and update this Agreement from time to time in our sole discretion, with or without notice. All changes are effective immediately when we post them. Your continued use of the Site following the posting of the revised Agreement means that you accept and agree to the changes. You are expected to check this page from time to time so you are aware of any changes, as they are binding on you.
Through the Site, you may have access to view your billing, payment and other account records and to complete electronic payments.
Through your use of the Site’s payment processing services, you understand that you are authorizing us to process payments according to your instructions, which may include, without limitation, payments from a credit or debit card or bank or financial institution account (the “Transaction Account”) that you designate according to your instructions. It is your responsibility to establish and maintain sufficient funds in the Transaction Account and to pay any and all fees associated with the transaction including any fees charged by your Provider and/or your bank of financial institution for failed transactions. You authorize us to charge your Transaction Account and remit funds on your behalf so that the funds arrive as close to the business day designated by you as reasonably possible.
If there are insufficient funds or available credit, your credit card company, financial institution, ClearGage and/or Provider may charge you a fee, interest or decline your online payment. You are solely responsible for paying any fees or interest associated therewith, and any other fees, charges, or interest levied by your credit card company, bank or financial institution with respect to any transaction processed using the Site. You are also responsible for any fees, charges or interest levied by your Provider for any payments which are not timely received by your Provider for any reason.
You understand that your Provider determines the amount that appears on your invoice, and that we do not have any authority to determine or otherwise modify the balance. You understand that any questions or disputes regarding the balance and/or the services provided by your Provider must be resolved directly with your Provider, and that we have no authority to resolve any such disputes. Any requests for refunds must be requested, approved by and processed through your Provider.
We will use our best efforts to process all your payment authorizations promptly and properly. However, we shall incur no liability if we are unable to complete any payments initiated by you because of the existence of any one or more of the following circumstances:
- Your account does not contain sufficient funds to complete the transaction or the transaction would exceed the credit limit of your overdraft account.
- You have not provided us with correct names or account information.
- Circumstances beyond our control (such as, but not limited to, fire, flood, or interference from an outside force) prevent the proper transmission of your payment authorization and we have taken reasonable precautions to avoid those circumstances.
- Fault of internet, third-party service providers’ failure, bank, credit card, merchant processor, etc.
For this reason, it is recommended that all payment authorizations be received by us at least three (3) business days before the actual due date, not the late date. If you properly follow the procedures described herein, and we fail to process payment authorizations in a timely manner, we will bear responsibility for any late charges ($50 maximum) actually incurred by you. In any other event, including, but not limited to, sending a payment authorization less than three (3) days prior to the actual due date, the risk of incurring and the responsibility for paying any and all late charges or penalties shall be borne by you.
Authorization of payment of taxes or court-directed payment through the Site is prohibited.
