3. Our Role and Your Responsibilities.


3.1: Glean is a Payment Service Provider ("PSP"), not a bank, money transmitter, or Money Services Business ("MSB"), and we do not offer banking or MSB services as defined by the United States Department of Treasury. Specifically, Glean acts as your agent in so far as routing payments/funds to Payees. Glean does not hold any money on behalf of its users or customers.


3.2: You agree Glean will issue a payment directly from your own bank account that you have connected in your Glean account, and allow Glean to facilitate the routing to the Payee.


3.3: As a PSP, Glean collects, analyzes and relays information generated in connection with payments to and from our users. You authorize Glean to provide this information to our partners in order for the partner to facilitate the payments from/to our users through the various payment networks ("Network", "Networks"), including ACH and Check 21, as applicable. As a result, the FSP, Financial Service Provider, - and not Glean - actually conducts the settlement of Network transactions from/to our users. Glean does not at any point hold or own funds in connection with the Service, nor does Glean transmit money or monetary value. In connection with the Service, Glean does not actually or constructively receive, take possession of or hold any money or monetary value for transmission, and does not advertise, solicit or hold itself out as receiving money for transmission. The Financial Service Provider is the party with sole responsibility for conducting the settlement of funds between our users.


3.4: In order to act as a PSP, Glean must enter into agreements with Partners, who have partnerships with Networks and FSPs. You are not a third-party beneficiary of these agreements. Each of the Networks and FSPs is a third-party beneficiary of this Agreement and has beneficiary rights, but not obligations, and may enforce this Agreement against you. Some of these third parties may require a direct agreement with you. If you are required to enter into such an agreement and, if you decline to do so, we may suspend or terminate your Account.

4. Bill Payment Services.


4.1: Description of Bill Payment Services.


a) Glean provides a bill payment service that allows you, as either an individual or a business, to make payments to creditors / payees (the “Bill Payment Services”). You agree that you will only use the service to send bill payments on your own behalf, or on behalf of your business, and will not use the Bill Payment Services as an agent, guardian, conservator or guarantor for any other person or entity. In order to use the Bill Payment Services, you need to upload to Glean the bill you wish to pay, so that all the relevant information such as account number, due date, routing information, etc. is visible. By using the Bill Payment Services, you expressly authorize Glean to act on your behalf and as your agent, solely for the purpose of providing the Bill Payment Services to you.


b) By initiating a payment through the Bill Payment Services, you authorize Glean to write a check on your behalf from the account that you designate as the account to which the bill payments should be charged or withdrawn from (the "Funding Account"). You agree to maintain a balance or available credit limit in the specified Funding Account that is sufficient to fund all payments you initiate. If the Funding Account does not have sufficient funds for the bill payment to be made, Glean will not be able to facilitate the payment to the Payee. You represent and warrant that you have the right to authorize Glean to initiate a charge from the Funding Account for payments you initiate using the Bill Payment Services. You will indemnify and hold Glean harmless from any claims by any third party, including any other owner of the account related to Glean's access to the Funding Account.


c) You are responsible for confirming the accuracy of the information you provide about each payment you send, including the email/physical address or telephone number of the Payee, and the amount of the transaction.


d) You represent and warrant that Glean may send communication to the Payee on your behalf in connection with the Bill Payment Services.


4.2: Limits On Payees, Payment Amounts And Methods.


a) You acknowledge that certain Payees may not accept payment from all types of funding sources and that we may otherwise limit the payment methods available for a particular Payee. Additionally, Glean may, at its discretion, impose limits on the number and amount of payments, in aggregate, that you can send using the Bill Payment Services.


b) Glean may refuse to permit payment to any Payee if we reasonably believe such refusal is necessary or advisable for legal or security reasons. If you fail to maintain a balance in the applicable Funding Account that is insufficient to fund any payment that you initiate, Glean may refuse to make any subsequent payment for as long as we determine to be necessary or appropriate. Glean also reserves the right to refuse to make any payment.


c) Glean reserves the right to select the method in which to remit funds on your behalf, and the method to return funds to you in the event your Funding Account is closed or otherwise unavailable to us. The payment methods through the Bill Payment Services may include, but are not limited to, electronic or paper check payments. The Bill Payment Services does not support payment to all types of billers, including certain government agencies and bills such as tax payments and court-ordered payments.


4.3: Rejected or Returned Payments.


a) When you send a payment via the Bill Payment Services, the Payee is not required to accept it. You also understand that Payees, payment processors, or the mail/package delivery service providers may return payments for various reasons. These reasons can include, but are not limited to: the Payee's forwarding address has expired; the Payee's account number is not valid; the Payee is unable to locate the account; or your account with the Payee is paid in full. You agree that you will not hold Glean liable for any damages resulting from a Payee not receiving payment made through the Bill Payment Services for any reason.


b) We use reasonable efforts to research and correct the returned payment and deliver it to your Payee. Payments outstanding after a reasonable time based on the method of payment may be automatically voided by Glean and the payment amount credited to your Funding Account. You are responsible for reconciling your Account(s) and reviewing the status of the payments. If we are unable to complete a payment for any reason, we may, in a method of our choosing and at our sole discretion, provide you with notice. We will, to the extent permitted by law, make reasonable attempts to return any unclaimed, refused, refunded, prohibited or denied payments to your Funding Account, or use other reasonable efforts to return such payment to you as permitted by law.


c) In using the Bill Payment Services, you are requesting Glean Bills to facilitate making payments from your Funding Account(s) to your Payee(s). If Bill Payment Service is unable to access funds from your specified Funding Account to complete a bill payment transaction you request for any reason (for example, non-sufficient funds, closed account, inability to locate account, or reversal by you and/or your bank), the transaction may not be completed.


d) Glean is not responsible for any overdraft fees, over-the-limit fees, or insufficient fund charges (including finance charges, late fees, or similar charges) that result from your failure to maintain a balance or available credit in the Funding Account that is sufficient to fund all payments you initiate.


4.4: Your Liability.


a) You are solely liable for errors you make in using the Bill Payment Services, including the following: (i) you direct Glean to submit a payment to a Payee from the wrong Funding Account; (ii) you erroneously direct Glean to submit a payment to a Payee multiple times; (iii) you direct Glean to submit the wrong amount to a Payee; (iv) you direct Glean to submit a payment to the wrong Payee; or (v) you change your mind about making a payment to a Payee after directing Glean to submit the payment.


b) You are responsible for all fees, fines, penalties, and other liability incurred by Glean, a Payee, you or a third party caused by or arising out of your breach of this Agreement and/or your use of the Bill Payment Services. You agree to reimburse Glean, a Payee or the applicable third party for any and all such liability.


c) Glean does not have control of, or liability for, the products or services that are paid for via the Bill Payment Services.


d) As permitted, you may cancel, edit, or stop a payment prior to the pay date by following the directions within the help section of the Bill Payment Service. Our ability to stop a payment request will depend on the manner in which the payment was initiated, the method of payment, and whether or not the Payee has begun processing payment. Although we will make a reasonable effort to accommodate a stop payment request, we will have no liability for failing to do so unless there is an exception provided elsewhere in this Agreement. We may also require you to present your stop payment request in writing after contacting customer care.


4.5: Delays, Unauthorized Transactions, or Errors.


a) You acknowledge that some transactions may take longer to be credited to your account with the applicable Payee due to circumstances beyond Glean' control, such as delays in handling and posting payments by Payees or financial institutions or errors with account information or funding instructions.


b) When you send a payment to certain Payees, the payment may be treated as an authorization to the Payee to process your payment and complete the transaction. Some Payees may delay processing your payment, in which case the payment may be held as pending until the Payee processes your payment and your payment authorization will remain valid for up to 30 days.


c) To help ensure that there is enough time for the applicable Payee to receive any payments you submit through the Bill Payment Services, you should submit payment instructions prior to the due date. Before completing the transaction, you will be provided with an estimated delivery date for the bill payment. It is solely your responsibility to submit payments so they arrive by the Payee's due date.


d) Subject to the other provisions of this Agreement, Glean will bear responsibility for any satisfactorily documented late payment related charges up to a reasonable amount, not to exceed $25.00 in the event a payment posts after its due date provided that (i) the payment was submitted by you for payment in accordance with the guidelines specified in this section and (ii) the Bill Payment Services issued you a confirmation number for a payment, unless we are not responsible to you for one of the reasons listed in this section or below under "Protection for Glean Errors." THIS IS GLEAN'S ONLY OBLIGATION TO YOU FOR ANY PAYMENT ERRORS, DELAYS, OR FAILURE. IF YOU DO NOT FOLLOW THESE RULES OR IF YOU DO NOT ALLOW ENOUGH TIME TO COMPLETE A PAYMENT, YOU ALONE ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY PENALTIES OR LATE CHARGES ON THAT PAYMENT.


4.6: Errors or other Issues Regarding Payments


a) It is your responsibility to review all payment transactions initiated in the Bill Payment Services against account statements you receive from your bank or other financial institution. Your payment transaction information is included in the receipts we provide you. ALL QUESTIONS ABOUT TRANSACTIONS MADE THROUGH THE BILL PAYMENT SERVICES MUST BE DIRECTED TO GLEAN, AND NOT TO THE BANK OR OTHER FINANCIAL INSTITUTION WHERE YOU HAVE YOUR ACCOUNT. We are responsible for our Bill Payment Services and for resolving any errors we caused. We may not send you a periodic statement listing transactions that you make using the Bill Payment Services. The transactions will appear only on the statement issued by your bank or other financial institution. SAVE THE RECEIPTS FROM OUR BILL PAYMENT SERVICES, AND CHECK THEM AGAINST THE ACCOUNT STATEMENT YOU RECEIVE FROM YOUR BANK OR OTHER FINANCIAL INSTITUTION.


b) IF YOUR CREDENTIALS TO ACCESS THE BILL PAYMENT SERVICES OR YOUR MOBILE DEVICE ARE LOST OR STOLEN, NOTIFY US AT ONCE BY WRITING TO SUPPORT@GLEANCOMPANY.COM OR USING ANY OTHER CONTACT METHOD SPECIFIED ON OUR WEBSITE.


4.7: Protection for Glean Errors.


a) Glean will use commercially reasonable efforts to facilitate the payment of your bills in accordance with this Agreement. However, Glean will not be liable, for instance: if, through no fault of ours, you do not have enough money in your Funding Account to make the transfer; the payment is rejected, returned, mishandled, or delayed by the Payee for any reason; you have provided Glean with incorrect information about the Payee; the Funding Account you specify as the payment source is closed or the charge is rejected or returned by your bank or financial institution; due to any pre-announced unavailability of the Bill Payment Services; due to fraud or attacks on our systems, service or the Bill Payment Services; due to third party service providers; or due to circumstances beyond our control (for example, fire, flood, interference from an outside source, postal delays, or any failure by your computer, software, or Internet connection).


4.8: Risk Monitoring; Unusual or Suspicious Transactions; Termination


a) In an effort to manage our risk, we may monitor your transactions and processing activity for high-risk practices or for fraudulent transactions. We may also engage third-party service providers to assist in these efforts and other elements of the Bill Payment Services. 


b) If Glean believes there is suspicious or unusual activity, Glean may temporarily suspend your access to Bill Payment Services. Suspicious or unusual activity includes, but is not limited to, changes in your average transaction amount or processing pattern or use of different payment accounts. Glean may require additional documentation to promptly reinstate your access to the Bill Payment Services.


c) As described in Section 13, Glean may terminate or suspend your access to the Bill Payment Services at any time. Neither termination nor suspension shall affect your liability or obligations under this Agreement. In the event you or Glean terminates your account, any payment(s) Glean has already processed before the requested termination date may be completed. You should verify payment directly with your intended Payee. Glean is not responsible for any payments not completed by us as a result of termination.
