Prior to making a payment through the Payment Portal, please ensure that you have enough money in your designated bank account to cover the payment. For each transaction, your bank may assess its customary per-check or item-handling charge or its customary charge for each dishonored check or draft. If any transaction is not honored by your bank, we have the right to collect the amount from you as permitted by applicable law.

- as necessary to complete transactions ;
- as required to our employees, auditors, service providers, attorneys, or agents in the course of their duties;

GENERAL DISCLOSURE STATEMENT:
Any documentation provided to you which indicates that an electronic fund transfer was made shall be admissible as evidence of such transfer and shall constitute prima facie proof that such transfer was made.
