Please read the following Terms & Conditions carefully since they govern your use of the GraceKennedy Remittance Services (GKRS) Bill Express website (www.billexpressonline.com). From this point on, we will refer to the GKRS website as "Service" in these Terms of Conditions.
By accessing this site you indicate your acknowledgement and acceptance of these terms and conditions.
If you do not agree to the Terms & Conditions below, please do not access this site or any of the pages herein.
"Service" means the bill payment service offered by GraceKennedy Remittance Services Limited (“GKRS”) through the www.billexpressonline.com website ("the website"), and a reference to the Service includes GKRS, as the context may require.
"Agreement" means these Terms and Conditions of the Service which are legally binding on you and the Service once you give a Payment Instruction or other information on the website.
"Payee" means the person or entity to which you wish a bill payment to be directed.
"Payment Instruction" means the information provided by you to the Service for a bill payment to be made to the Payee (such as, but not limited to, Payee name and Payee account number).
"Business Day" means every Monday through Friday, excluding public holidays.
"Scheduled Payment Period" means the period of two Business Days after your credit card is debited within which, subject to the provisions hereof, your Payee account shall be credited with your payment.
"Due Date" means the date reflected on your Payee statement on which the payment is due. It is not the late date or grace period.
"Scheduled Payment" means a payment that has been scheduled through the Service but has not begun to be processed.
All information submitted to GKRS via this website shall be and remain the property of GKRS. GKRS shall be free to use, for any legal purpose, any ideas, concepts, know-how or techniques contained in information a user to this Website provides. We will use our best efforts to include accurate and up to date information on this website, but we make no warranties or representations as to the accuracy of the information.
Due to circumstances beyond the control of the Service, particularly delays in handling and posting payments by Payees or financial institutions, there may be delays in the crediting of some transactions to your account. The Service shall not be responsible for any such delay, but will bear responsibility only for the transmission of transaction information to the respective Payee who then has the sole responsibility for crediting your account.
By providing the Service with names and account information of Payees to whom you wish to direct payments, you thereby authorize the Service to follow the Payment Instructions that it receives through the payment system. In order to process payments more efficiently and effectively, the Service may edit or alter payment data or data formats in accordance with Payee directives.
When the Service receives a Payment Instruction from you, you thereby authorize the Service to charge your credit card and remit funds on your behalf so that, subject to the terms and conditions herein contained, your account shall be credited within the Scheduled Payment Period. You also authorize the Service to credit your credit card for payments returned to the Service by the Payee.
The Service will use its best efforts to make all your payments properly. However, the Service shall incur no liability whatsoever for any loss, damage, expense or cost of any kind, and any Service guarantee shall be void and of no effect if the Service is unable to complete any payment initiated by you because of the existence of any one or more of the following circumstances:
Provided that none of the foregoing exceptions are applicable, if the Service causes an incorrect amount of funds to be removed from your credit card or causes funds from your credit card to be directed to a Payee which does not comply with your Payment Instruction, the Service shall be responsible for returning the improperly transferred funds to your credit card, and for directing to the proper Payee any previously misdirected transactions, and, if applicable, for any late payment related charges. This shall be the extent of the liability of the Service hereunder.
The Service reserves the right to select the method in which to remit funds on your behalf to your Payee. These payment methods may include, but are not limited to, an electronic payment, an electronic to cheque payment, or a laser draft payment.
Once the Service has begun processing a payment it cannot be cancelled or edited.
Payments to Payees who GKRS does not currently represent are prohibited through the Service. This Agreement does not alter your liability or obligations that currently exist between you and your Payees.
THE SERVICE AND RELATED DOCUMENTATION ARE PROVIDED "AS IS" WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, EITHER EXPRESSED OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE.
You agree not to give or make available your password (where applicable) to any unauthorized individuals. You are responsible for all payments you authorize using the Service. If you permit other persons to use the Service with your credit card on your behalf, you are wholly responsible for any transactions that they authorize. If you believe that your password has been lost or stolen or that someone may attempt to use the Service with your credit card without your consent, you must notify the Service at once by calling 888-555-5555 during customer service hours (9:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. each Business Day).
Subject to the Service Responsibility set out above, GKRS is not responsible for transactions done using your credit card since GKRS offers the Service using a secure server and therefore has no access to the particulars of your credit card and no control over the use of your card. For the avoidance of doubt, GKRS shall not be liable to you in respect of any transaction done using your credit card or credit card account number whether or not such transaction was done by a third party without your knowledge or consent.
In case of errors or questions about your transactions, you should as soon as possible notify us via one of the following:
If you think your statement is incorrect or you need more information about a transaction listed on the statement, you must contact us no later than sixty (60) days after the FIRST statement was posted on which the problem or error appears. You must:
If you tell us verbally, we may require that you send your complaint in writing within ten (10) Business Days after your verbal notification. We will tell you the results of our investigation within ten (10) Business Days after we hear from you, and will correct any error promptly. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if we require more time to confirm the nature of your complaint or question, we reserve the right to take up to forty five (45) days to complete our investigation. If we decide to do this, we will provisionally credit your credit card within ten (10) Business Days for the amount you think is in error. If we ask you to submit your complaint or question in writing and we do not receive it within ten (10) Business Days, we may not provisionally credit your credit card. If it is determined that there was no error we will mail you a written explanation within three (3) Business Days after completion of our investigation. You may ask for copies of documents used in our investigation. The Service may revoke any provisional credit provided to you if we find that an error did not occur.
GKRS may use standard Web tracking software to collect non-identifying information about visitors to its website such as:
Some areas of the web site may use a “cookie” temporarily stored in the visitor’s computer memory (RAM) to allow the web server to log the pages you use within the site and to know if you have visited the site before.
It is our general policy to treat your account information as confidential. However, we will disclose information to third parties about your account or the transactions you make ONLY in the following situations:
GKRS may use this information to create summary statistics and to determine the level of interest in its website.
Though the Service is free to you, there will be a charge for optional services offered by GKRS on the website. You hereby agree to pay such charges and authorize the Service to deduct the calculated amount from your credit card for these amounts and any additional charges that may be incurred by you. The calculation of any such amount shall be final and binding on you, except in the case of manifest error. Any financial fees associated with your credit card will continue to apply. You are responsible for any and all telephone access fees and/or internet service fees that may be assessed by your telephone and/or internet service provider.
In using the Service, you are requesting the Service to make payments for you from your credit card. If we are unable to complete the transaction for any reason associated with your credit card (for example, you have exceeded your credit limit), the transaction will not be completed.
This Agreement, and the applicable fees and service charges may be altered or amended by the Service from time to time without notice. In such event, the Service shall not be obliged to inform users but shall ensure that the new terms and conditions are posted on the site. Any use of the Service after the Service posts new terms and conditions will be deemed to constitute your agreement to such change(s). Further, the Service may, from time to time, revise or update the applications, services, and/or related material, which may render all prior versions obsolete. Consequently, the Service reserves 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 Service's more recent revisions and updates.
It is your sole responsibility to ensure that the contact information in your user profile is current and accurate. This includes, but is not limited to, name, address, phone numbers and email addresses. Changes can be made online only. All changes made are effective immediately for Scheduled and future payments paid from the updated information. You hereby agree that the Service is not responsible for any payment processing errors or fees incurred if you do not provide accurate information in your contact information, Payment Instructions or otherwise.
The Service may terminate or suspend Service to you at any time. Neither termination nor suspension shall affect your liability or obligations under this Agreement up to the date of termination or suspension.
The Service reserves the right to refuse to pay any Payee to whom you may direct a payment. The Service will notify you promptly if it decides to refuse to pay a Payee designated by you.
In using the Service, you understand and agree that Payees may return payments to the Service for various reasons such as, but not limited to, (a) Payee account number not valid; (b) Payee is unable to locate account; or (c) Payee account paid in full. The Service will use its best efforts to research and correct the returned payment and return it to your Payee, or void the payment and credit your credit card.
Your use of the Service may not be fulfilled if the Service cannot verify your identity or other necessary information. Through your enrollment in the Service, you agree that the Service reserves the right to request a review of your credit rating at its own expense through an authorized credit bureau. In addition, you agree that the Service reserves the right to obtain financial information regarding your account from a Payee or your financial institution (for example, to resolve payment posting problems or for verification).
In the event of a dispute regarding the Service, you and the Service hereby agree to resolve the dispute by looking to this Agreement. You agree that this Agreement is the complete and exclusive statement of the agreement between you and the Service which supersedes any proposal or prior agreement, oral or written, and any other communications between you and the Service relating to the subject matter of this Agreement. If there is a conflict between what an employee or other representative of the Service says and the terms of this Agreement, the terms of this Agreement will prevail.
You may not assign this Agreement to any other party. The Service may assign this Agreement freely. The Service may also assign or delegate certain of its rights and responsibilities under this Agreement to independent contractors or other third parties.
The Service shall not be deemed to have waived any of its rights or remedies hereunder unless such waiver is in writing and signed by the Service. No delay or omission on the part of the Service in exercising any rights or remedies shall operate as a waiver of such rights or remedies or any other rights or remedies. A waiver on any one occasion shall not be construed as a bar or waiver of any rights or remedies on future occasions.
The captions of sections hereof are for convenience only and shall not control or affect the meaning or construction of any of the provisions of this Agreement.
