Regulation E of the Electronic Funds Transfer Act applies to the portion of the Service that allows you to pay your bills online. The Regulation provides for certain protections for you and requires us to furnish certain disclosures regarding your rights and liabilities relating to transfers of funds that can be initiated before the first electronic funds transfer is made involving your account.

To the extent you have provided your personal identifier information to another person, they will have access to the Service to the same extent as you have access.

Should you wish to terminate such person's access to your Service with us, you must contact us immediately to block usage of the Service by anyone, including yourself, on this account.

Changes to Member Information

If there is a change in the Funding Account(s) used to pay your Katabat, LLC account, you must promptly notify us of those changes prior to the date(s) scheduled for payment. See section below entitled "Confirming Payments, Stopping Payments". Otherwise, we will continue to use the old information in processing pending payment(s). Please edit your Funding Account information via the website on the "Add or Update Funding Accounts" page. We will not be responsible for problems that may arise if you change the Funding Account(s) used to pay your Katabat, LLC account or if the account is closed before funding has taken place. It is your responsibility to make sure all pending payments are directed to active and open Funding Accounts.

Scheduling Payments


There are two important dates in the bill payment process.

The "Payment Due Date"

This is the last date on which you want Katabat, LLC to receive your payment. This date must be one of our Business Days. In many instances, this is probably the payment due date noted on your billing statement. If the balance you owe Katabat, LLC bears daily interest, however, you may want to select an earlier date.

The "Processing Date"

This is the date on which you tell us that funds should be credited to your Katabat, LLC account and is also the date on which funds may be drawn or deducted from your Funding Account (funds may be drawn or deducted from your Funding Account either on the Processing Date or within the next two business days).

All payments on your Katabat, LLC account made within the Katabat, LLC Service website must follow the following rule: all payments made on your Katabat, LLC account either within the Katabat, LLC Service website or through other payment methods to Katabat, LLC may not exceed the then current account balance. If a payment scheduled on the Katabat, LLC Service website will cause any of these rules to be broken, Katabat, LLC in its discretion reserves the right to either modify or cancel the payment if you fail to follow the rules.

Selecting Dates

ACH Payments

You must select the Processing Date for each Scheduled Payment you wish to make. The website will permit you to enter a Processing Date that is a federal holiday. However, if you do enter a Processing Date that is a federal holiday, the Processing Date will be changed to the next business day, payment will be credited to your Katabat, LLC account, and funds will be drawn or deducted from your Funding Account on or the business day after the new Processing Date.

If your instructions are received by us no later than 2:00 p.m. Eastern Time (11:00 a.m. Pacific Time) on any Business Day (the "Cutoff Time"), the earliest Processing Date that you will be able to select will be today's date. If we receive your instructions after the Cutoff Time, the earliest Processing Date that you will be able to select will be the next business day from today's date. IF YOU ARE SCHEDULING A PAYMENT, THE PAYMENT SHOULD BE ENTERED BY THE CUTOFF TIME AT LEAST ONE BUSINESS DAY PRIOR TO THE PAYMENT DUE DATE TO ENSURE THAT THERE IS ENOUGH TIME FOR THE PAYMENT TO BE POSTED TO YOUR ACCOUNT.

Confirming Payments, Stopping Payments

A payment will be considered submitted after the Cutoff time for that Processing Date ("Processed"). Through our website, we will notify you of Scheduled Payments and Submitted Payments as each occurs. You may cancel a Scheduled Payment at any time before the Cutoff Time on the scheduled Processing Date by accessing the "Account Summary" page.

Funding Account and Payment Vehicles

We are responsible for the timely and accurate processing of payments on your behalf following your instructions. Your instructions are deemed to consist of explicit authorizations of individual payments that you enter or edit on the Katabat, LLC Service website. You are responsible for the accuracy of your instructions. We will not be liable for payments we make or fail to make as a result of our following erroneous instructions from you.

You may have more than one Funding Account on the Katabat, LLC Service. If you do not designate a default Funding Account, one you wish payments to be drawn from first, Katabat, LLC reserves the right to designate a default Funding Account for you. All Funding Accounts must be associated solely with a financial institution based within the United States of America or its territories.

It is your responsibility to have sufficient available funds in your Funding Account for payments you schedule and you agree to ensure this occurs. We will not be obligated to process any payment of any item unless and until there are sufficient available funds in your Funding Account (including any overdraft line of credit account or any other credit account supporting your Funding Account) to cover the payment on the Processing Date. Notwithstanding any instructions from you, we are under no obligation to process any payment on your behalf that: 1) exceeds the available funds in your Funding Account, as determined by your financial institution; 2) is not in accordance with the provisions of these Terms and Conditions; 3) we have reason to believe may not be authorized by you; or 4) would violate any law or regulation applicable to our Service or your financial institution. You acknowledge that the Service is only for the payment of certain Katabat, LLC bills from your designated Funding Account(s).

We utilize the Automated Clearing House ("ACH") vehicle to make payments on your behalf from your Funding Account(s). When we use the ACH vehicle, we electronically draw the amount of the payment from the Funding Account on the Processing Date or the business day after the Processing Date using the ACH. The payment will be credited to your Katabat, LLC account as of the Processing Date.

Dishonor of a Payment

We have no obligation to extend credit to you. Accordingly, if for any reason, such as insufficient funds, incorrect Funding Account information, Funding Account closure or suspension, or similar circumstances, your financial institution does not honor our withdrawal instructions in connection with a payment, you agree that we can do any, or more than one of, the following, as applicable:

  • We can repeat the payment process one or more times, until your bank funds our transfer request. However, we have no obligation to try debiting the Funding Account more than once.
  • We can cancel the payment we have made on your Katabat, LLC account on your behalf and charge your Funding Account to obtain reimbursement for any fees we incur for your stopping payment to Katabat, LLC.
  • We can deactivate your usage of the Service with us so that you may no longer make payments through the Service.
  • We may use all legal remedies available to us to collect the amount due to us in connection with the payment.

We may use all legal remedies available to us to collect the amount due to us in connection with the payment.

Your Obligation

You remain responsible for monitoring your Service with us and your Funding Account(s). You agree to review and verify payments made through the Service as often as may be necessary or appropriate to ensure that all such payments are made in accordance with your instructions. You must review those payments as they are reflected on our website and on the statements of your Funding Accounts, and tell us immediately if you believe that we have made an error.

In Case of Errors or Questions about a Payment

We must hear from you no later than 60 days after your bank or financial institution sent you the FIRST statement on which the problem or error appeared.

  1. Tell us your name and Katabat, LLC Reference Number.
  2. Describe the error or the transfer you are unsure about and explain as clearly as you can why you believe it is an error or why you need more information.
  3. Tell us the dollar amount of the suspected error.

If you tell us orally, we may require you to send us your complaint or question in writing within 10 Business Days.

We will attempt to resolve the question immediately with you, or your financial institution, but we may take up to ten (10) Business Days to finish our investigation and correct any error we find. If we can't resolve the question within ten (10) Business Days, we may take up to 45 days to do so, but we will provisionally credit your Katabat, LLC account for the amount in question within 10 Business Days while we continue our investigation. If we ask you to put your complaint or question in writing and we do not receive it within ten (10) Business Days, we may not provisionally credit your Katabat, LLC account.

We will provide you a written explanation of our findings within three (3) Business Days of the completion of our investigation. You may ask for copies of any documents we used in our investigation. If we provisionally credit your Katabat, LLC account, we may take back the amount of any credit if we find that an error did not occur.
