Go Check In or the Banks also reserve the right to debit a Recipient’s account for money paid to the Recipient on your behalf if your payment is returned because of insufficient funds or any other reason.

Recipient if the Payor has an outstanding balance with Go Check In. You shall be solely responsible for all penalties, interest charges, late payment fees and service fees resulting from such a debit to the Recipient.
10. PAYMENT CANCELLATION REQUESTS
Scheduled payments may be cancelled, rescheduled or modified by following the directions through the Services.

However, once Go Check In or the Banks have begun processing a payment, it cannot be cancelled, rescheduled or modified, and you must submit a stop payment request.
In the event that you as Payor initiate a chargeback, clawback, or ACH return for a payment that has already been transmitted to the Recipient, you agree to assign to Go Check In any claims against your Recipient associated with such chargeback, clawback or ACHreturn. You further agree that we may contact your Recipient directly to request reimbursement for any payment that has been transmitted to the Recipient and for which you have initiated a chargeback, clawback, or ACH return.
In the event that Go Check In receives a chargeback, clawback or ACH return, you as Recipient authorize Go Check In to debit your Payment Method on file for the amount of the chargeback plus any associated fees or to withhold funds from future distributions.
11.1. Payment Refunds.
• In certain situations following a payment submission, you may request a refund by contacting Go Check In at [email protected] The availability of refunds and processes for their execution are dependent on the disbursement channels by which payments are delivered to Recipients. Go Check In is unable to issue partial refunds.
• Go Check In is also unable to initiate refunds in cases where a Recipient has already received your payment. If this is the case, you should contact your Recipient directly to request a refund, pursuant to their payment terms.
• In the event of a refund, Go Check In will also refund a proportional amount of the Go Check In Fee, less any unrecoverable costs Go Check In or the Banks may incur. Principal refunds effected via clawback or chargeback mechanisms, however, will not result in a refund of the Go Check In Fee, in whole or in part.
11.2. Refunds for Electronic Payments. Go Check In may refund electronic payments, including those delivered via Electronic Fund Transfer (“EFT”), ACH and card network providers, prior to their disbursement.
11.3. Refunds for Check Payments.
• Go Check In may refund payments disbursed via check prior to their deposit by your Recipient. If Go Check In has already sent a check, we
may place a “stop payment” request to ensure it cannot be
deposited. In such cases, we suggest that you contact your
Recipient to let it know not to deposit the stopped check.
• If your Recipient attempts to deposit a stopped check, it may be charged a fee from its bank for the exception, which it may attempt to assign to you. You accept the responsibility of notifying your
Recipient to not deposit your check, and you agree not to hold
Go Check In or the Banks liable for any costs you may incur from your
Recipient in such a case.
12. Go Check In FEES
12.1. Service Fees.
• You understand and agree that Go Check In may charge Fees for access to and use of the Go Check In Services. Fees will be charged to your payment method, either in a separate transaction from any principal payments or in a single transaction including both amounts,
depending on applicable rules.
• Fees for immediately processed payments are charged in real-time upon submission. Fees for Scheduled payments are locked in at
time of submission and will be charged on the payment’s Process
Date. If a Scheduled payment is edited prior to its Process Date,
the applicable Fee will be recalculated based on the presently
12.2. Fee Updates. Fees may vary, depending upon factors including but not limited to the payment’s Recipient, the payment method, and other variables both which may or may not be controlled by Go Check In. Fees are subject to change at any time without prior notice and are calculated in real time and presented to you during review of your payment, prior to submission or edit.

If either party prevails in the arbitration of any Claim against the other, the non-prevailing party will reimburse the prevailing party for any fees it paid to the AAA in connection with the arbitration, as well as for any reasonable attorneys’ fees incurred by the prevailing party in connection with such arbitration. Any decision rendered in such arbitration proceedings will be final and binding on the parties, and judgment may be entered in a court of competent jurisdiction. Rules and forms of the AAA may be obtained and Claims may be filed at any AAA office, www.adr.org, or 335 Madison Avenue, New York, NY 10017, telephone 1-800-778-7879.

IN THE ABSENCE OF THIS ARBITRATION AGREEMENT, YOU AND Go Check In AND YOU AND ONE OR MORE BANKS MAY
OTHERWISE HAVE HAD A RIGHT OR OPPORTUNITY TO LITIGATE CLAIMS THROUGH A COURT BEFORE A JUDGE OR A JURY AND/OR TO PARTICIPATE OR BE REPRESENTED IN LITIGATION FILED IN COURT BY OTHERS (INCLUDING CLASS ACTIONS), BUT EXCEPT AS OTHERWISE PROVIDED ABOVE, THOSE RIGHTS, INCLUDING ANY RIGHT TO A JURY TRIAL, ARE WAIVED AND ALL CLAIMS MUST NOW BE RESOLVED THROUGH ARBITRATION.
