Your use of the Services after you are notified of any change(s) will constitute your agreement to such change(s). Further, the Services may, from time-to-time revise or update the applications, services, and/or related material. Such actions may render all such prior versions obsolete. Consequently, we reserve the right to terminate this Agreement as to all such prior versions of the applications, Services, and or related material and limit access to only the Services’ most recent revisions and updates.

This authorization will apply to all Funding Accounts and Payees currently listed in your Paytrust Profile and all Funding Accounts and Payees that you add to your Paytrust Profile in the future. You acknowledge that the origination of Automated Clearinghouse (ACH) transactions to your account must comply with the provisions of U.S. law.
Notice of Payments That Vary in Amount. Preauthorized automatic bill payments may vary where the amount due or minimum payment amount varies from the previous bill payment to the same Payee under the same authorization or from the preauthorized amount. If the Scheduled Payment amount varies from the previous payment amount made to the same Payee, you will receive written notification from Paytrust of the new amount no later than ten (10) calendar days before the Processing Date. If the Processing Date changes (other than for a weekend or federal holiday when the debit shall occur on the following banking date), you will receive written notice from Paytrust no later than seven (7) calendar days before the new Processing Date. This authorization will remain in full force and effect until you notify Paytrust to cancel one or more automatic payments, a minimum of three (3) business days before the Processing Date of the Scheduled Payment, either orally or in writing, by contacting customer support at Paytrust, or by cancelling the Scheduled Payment within your Paytrust Profile.

In your cancellation request, please provide the Payee’s name and account number as well as the amount and the specific payment to be cancelled.

Prohibited Payments. You may not use these Services in connection with any business of placing, receiving or otherwise knowingly transmitting bets or wagers by any means which involves the use, at least in part, of the Internet, or for any other transaction which is prohibited by Federal Reserve Regulation GG – Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act of 2006 (12 C.F.R. §233).

Mail is categorized into the following types and will be handled as follows:
1st Class Mail
All 1st class mail may be opened and all bills, invoices, statements of account and similar items will be scanned into the system. All other materials, whether included with a bill or sent to us separately, may be examined. Pertinent information other than a bill or billing inserts, such as a significant change in service or pricing, will be included as subsequent pages with your bill.

Payments and other items that we determine that you need to receive (for example, a check from your biller for credit balance reimbursement) will be forwarded to you at the address we have for you on file. All other such mail (e.g., coupons, advertising, newsletters, etc.) will be shredded and/or discarded. We will use our judgment in making the determination as to what to scan, what to shred, and what to forward, and we are not responsible if you disagree as to our decision in that regard. We will shred all scanned bills and notices on site prior to discarding them. If you have a question as to whether a particular item will be scanned, shredded, or forwarded, please send your question by e-mail addressed to the customer support group designated on the Services Website.
Mail Other Than 1st Class
All mail other than 1st class mail or its equivalent may be shredded and/or discarded without opening it to examine its contents. Bulk, standard, and non-profit are included in this class.
We are not responsible for forwarding packages to you, regardless of the class of mail used to deliver them to us. You must arrange with those parties from whom you purchase goods or from whom you otherwise expect packages to be sent to you to have those packages sent to a delivery address. Our customer service team is available to assist you in designating shipping and billing addresses with your billers.

Important Information About Procedures for Opening a New Paytrust Account. To help the government fight the funding of terrorism and money-laundering activities, federal law requires all financial institutions to obtain, verify, and record information that identifies each person who opens an account.
What this means for you: When you open a Paytrust Account, we will ask for your name, address, social security number, date of birth, and other information that will allow us to identify you. We may also ask to see identifying documents if our bank partner, Grasshopper Bank, requires such documents to complete your account application.
