User Account. In order to use the Service, you must have a valid account (an “Account”). To acquire an Account for the Service, you must provide AblePay with an electronic mail address and other information (“Registration Data”). You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of the access data for your Account, and are fully responsible for all activities that occur under your Account. You agree to: (i) immediately notify AblePay of any unauthorized use of your Account or any other breach of security; and (ii) ensure that you exit from your Account at the end of each session. AblePay cannot and will not be liable for any loss or damage arising from your failure to comply with this section. In consideration of use of the Service, you agree to: (a) provide true, accurate, current and complete information about yourself as prompted by the Service’s registration form; and (b) maintain and promptly update the Registration Data to keep it true, accurate, current and complete. AblePay assumes no duty to verify such information as further detailed below. If you provide any information that is untrue, inaccurate, not current or incomplete, or AblePay has reasonable grounds to suspect that such information is untrue, inaccurate, not current or incomplete, AblePay has the right to suspend or terminate your Account and refuse any and all current or future use of the Service (or any portion thereof). You hereby authorize AblePay, either directly or through third parties, to make any inquiries AblePay considers necessary to validate your Account Registration Data. By using the Service (and registering an Account on the Service), you represent and warrant that are at least 18 years of age. No one under the age of 18 may use the Service; provided, that Billed Amounts of minors may be paid through the Service by a parent or legal guardian of such minor(s) if such minor(s) are added to such parent or legal guardian’s Account. AblePay may, in its sole discretion, refuse to offer the Service to any person or entity and change its eligibility criteria at any time. You are solely responsible for ensuring that these Terms of Service are in compliance with all laws, rules and regulations applicable to you and the right to access the Service is revoked where these Terms of Service or use of the Service is prohibited or to the extent offering, sale or provision of the Service conflicts with any applicable law, rule or regulation.

AblePay will investigate any error within forty-five (45) days and tell you the results within three (3) days after completing AblePay’s investigation.

ACH/EFT. AblePay allows you to use electronic funds transfers (“EFT”) such as using your bank account for electronic check (eCheck) payments. This payment method is also called ACH debit, as it uses the Automated Clearing-House network. All EFT and ACH transactions are subject to AblePay’s error resolution notices, which can be linked to directly from AblePay’s homepage. Your completion of an eCheck payment constitutes your authorization to transfer the sum specified by you from your bank account to AblePay. After authorizing an ACH debit or AutoPay, you will not be able to cancel the electronic transfer. Completion of any payment via the Service is contingent on both authorization by the card company or the paying bank and acceptance by AblePay. If a payment is rejected or declined, you may be subject to penalties, late fees, insufficient funds (“NSF”) fees, and/or interest charges as assessed by us (see Failed Transaction Fee above) or as assessed by your banking or card institution. All payments made through the Service are final (unless rejected by the Providers), and you may not request or eek any refund or chargeback or otherwise cancel or reverse such a payment once authorized. You and not AblePay are responsible for ensuring that timely payments of all amounts are made. further, you and not AblePay are responsible to ensure that the amount of any payment you make using the Service is correct.

Dispute Resolution and Binding Arbitration. YOU AND AblePay ARE AGREEING TO GIVE UP ANY RIGHTS TO LITIGATE CLAIMS IN A COURT OR BEFORE A JURY, OR TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION WITH RESPECT TO A CLAIM.

ANY CLAIM, DISPUTE OR CONTROVERSY (WHETHER IN CONTRACT, TORT OR OTHERWISE, WHETHER PRE-EXISTING, PRESENT OR FUTURE, AND INCLUDING STATUTORY, CONSUMER PROTECTION, COMMON LAW, INTENTIONAL TORT, INJUNCTIVE AND EQUITABLE CLAIMS) BETWEEN YOU AND the ablepay parties arising from or relating in any way to your use of the Service, these Terms of Service, its interpretation or the breach, termination or validity thereof, the relationships that result from these Terms of Service (including relationships with third parties who are not signatories to these Terms of Service), AblePay’s advertising or any related purchase, if any, SHALL BE RESOLVED EXCLUSIVELY AND FINALLY BY BINDING ARBITRATION. The arbitrator shall have exclusive authority to resolve any dispute relating to arbitrability and/or enforceability of this arbitration provision including any unconscionability challenge or any other challenge that the arbitration provision or these Terms of Service is void, voidable or otherwise invalid. The arbitration shall be administered by the American Arbitration Association (AAA) or JAMS (or a substitute forum if both are unavailable). Arbitration proceedings shall be governed by this provision and the applicable procedures of the selected arbitration administrator, including any applicable procedures for consumer-related disputes, in effect at the time the claim is filed. The arbitration will be limited solely to your individual dispute or controversy. You agree to arbitration on an individual basis. In any dispute, NEITHER YOU NOR AblePay SHALL BE ENTITLED TO JOIN OR CONSOLIDATE CLAIMS BY OR AGAINST OTHER USERS OF THE SERVICE, OR ARBITRATE OR OTHERWISE PARTICIPATE IN ANY CLAIM AS A CLASS REPRESENTATIVE, CLASS MEMBER OR IN A PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL CAPACITY. If any provision of this arbitration agreement is found unenforceable, the unenforceable provision shall be severed and the remaining arbitration terms shall be enforced (but in no case shall there be class arbitration). The arbitrator shall be empowered to grant whatever relief would be available in court under law or in equity. The arbitration shall be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act 9 U.S.C. sec. 1-16 (FAA). Any award of the arbitrator(s) shall be final and binding on each of the parties, and may be entered as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction. Payment for all filing, administration and arbitrator fees will be governed by the rules of the applicable arbitration administrator, provided, that AblePay will reimburse those fees for claims totaling less than $10,000 unless the arbitrator determines the claims are frivolous. If you prevail on any claim that affords the prevailing party statutory attorneys’ fees, the arbitrator may award reasonable fees to you under the standards for fee shifting provided by law. Information on AAA or JAMS and their applicable rules are available at the following numbers and URLs: (i) American Arbitration Association: (800) 778-7879, www.adr.org; and (ii) JAMS: (800) 352-5267, www.jamsadr.com. If for any reason a claim proceeds in court rather than in arbitration each of you and AblePay waive any right to a jury trial. Moreover, each of you and AblePay both agree that either party may bring suit in court to enjoin infringement or misuse of intellectual property rights. You may opt out of this arbitration agreement. If you do so, neither you nor AblePay can force the other to arbitrate. To opt out, you must notify AblePay in writing no later than 30 days after first becoming subject to this arbitration agreement. Your notice must include your name and address, your AblePay account username and the email address you used to set up your AblePay account (if you have one), and an unequivocal statement that you want to opt out of this arbitration agreement. You must either mail your opt-out notice to this address: AblePay, LLC, ATTN: Arbitration Opt-out, P.O. Box 1278, Bethlehem, PA 18016-1278 or email the opt-out notice to  arbitration-opt-out@ablepayhealth.com. Notwithstanding the foregoing, you agree and acknowledge that AblePay may bring a proceeding against you in small claims court for any claim that may be properly brought therein.
