ELECTRONIC PAYMENT SERVICE
Through ExecuBanc, you are allowed to make certain payments electronically. There is no limit to the number of payments that may be authorized from UBM Checking Accounts. However, only one payment may be sent to each payee on the same day. A Payee can be either a Business Payee or a Non-business Payee. You may not pay alimony, child support, taxes or other governmental fees or court-directed payments or make payments to anyone outside the United States via ExecuBanc. The mailing address of any Payee must be in the United States and you are responsible for ensuring that you provide us with a correct address. By furnishing us with the names of your payees and their addresses, you authorize us to follow your instructions regarding payment to your Payees.
In addition to your Payee names and addresses, you will need to enter your Payee account number for each Business Payee (name, address and account number together are “Payee Information”) to ensure your payments are properly credited to your Payee account. Please note that your Business Payee may require that payments be sent to a specific address; this mailing address may be different than other addresses that appear on your invoice or billing statement. You may need to contact the Business Payee to obtain their payment mailing address.
We will not be obligated to make a payment unless your UBM Account and/or linked overdraft protection plan has sufficient funds or credit availability to pay the bill on the date the payment clears your account. Funds for ALL bill payments (whether we make these payments electronically or by check) will be withdrawn from your UBM account upon the date of the electronic payment or once the check clears your account.
Any payments made via ExecuBanc will require sufficient time for your Payee to receive your payment and credit your payment properly. To avoid incurring finance or other charges, you should schedule your payment sufficiently in advance of the due date. When you schedule payments, please take special care to select your appropriate date from the ePay calendar. Expedited delivery is possible available for a fee that is your responsibility.
Stop or Change Instructions
You have the right to stop or change any one-time bill payment as long as it is done before the check processes. Please click on the Help section within ePay for more details or contact us at (800) 421-2588 ext 102 for assistance.

- Through no fault of ours, you did not have enough money in your UBM Account to complete the transaction.

Limit of UBM and Other Providers´ Responsibility
UBM agrees to make reasonable efforts to ensure full performance on all ACH transactions. We will be responsible for acting only on those instructions that are actually received and cannot assume responsibility for malfunctions in communications facilities not under our control that may affect the accuracy or timeliness of messages you send. UBM is not responsible for any losses or delays in transmission of instructions arising out of the use of any participating financial institution. We are not responsible should you give incorrect instructions or if your payment instructions are not given prior to published cutoff times.
If a third party sends ACH Entries to us on your behalf, you acknowledge that said third party is your agent and you agree that you shall require any such third party to comply with the provisions of this Agreement.
You agree to indemnify each participating financial institution, NACHA, and the Federal Reserve Bank from all claims, demands, liabilities or expenses resulting from any failure on your part to exercise reasonable care in the creation of or presentment of Entries, or to comply with any of the provisions of the Operating Rules.
Any information you receive from UBM is believed to be reliable. However, it can only be provided on a best-efforts basis and is not guaranteed.

Electronic Funds Transfers
ExecuBanc, in conjunction with ACH Direct, enables you to transfer funds to or from your UBM Accounts. The Electronic Funds Transfer Act provides you with certain rights and responsibilities with respect to certain of these transfers, commonly referred to as an Electronic Funds Transfer (hereafter “EFT”). Such rights and responsibilities are fully described in our Electronic Funds Transfer Disclosure that has been separately provided to you. You can also click here on EFT Disclosure for online access.
We will initiate properly authorized and completed Funds Transfer Requests, as defined by UCC 4A (subject to funds availability) communicated to us online or telephonically on the date requested provided the request is received by us prior to the posted online cutoff time and provided the request includes all required information. We may make payments solely on the basis of the account number provided as proper identification of the intended beneficiary.
We shall not be liable for any delay or refusal to honor instructions for a transfer or related act if in good faith we are unable to satisfy ourselves that the instructions are given by an authorized employee. Our failure to verify or authenticate the transactions shall not be evidence of any failure to exercise reasonable care or good faith. If you did not authorize a payment order, the applicable provisions of UCC 4A will govern liability.
We agree to make reasonable efforts to complete all fund transfers as requested. We will be responsible for acting only on those instructions actually received by us and cannot assume responsibility for malfunctions in communications facilities or acts of others not under our control that may affect the accuracy or timeliness of messages you send. We are not responsible if you provide incorrect instructions or if your instructions are not received prior to our published cutoff times.
You have no right to cancel or amend a transfer after we execute it. We may attempt to revoke an order that has not been executed if the request is received in a time and manner that gives us a reasonable time to act upon it. However, we make no warranty as to our ability to revoke or cancel a transfer once made. You agree to hold us harmless against claims of third parties when you revoke or cancel any Funds Transfer instructions.
Stop Payment Request
We will accept online requests from an authorized employee to stop payment on any check, except for cashier’s checks, official checks or other cash equivalent items. We will process requests received prior to the posted cutoff time on the same Business Day received. Requests received after the posted cutoff time will be processed on the next business day. We must receive a stop payment request at a time that will give us a reasonable opportunity to act on it prior to payment of the item. Generally, stop payments are not processed until the cutoff time or later on that business day.
Stop Payment requests are not effective if, either before or within 24 hours of when the stop payment order was placed, we have already cashed the item or become otherwise legally obligated for its payment. Stop Payment request are processed by computer. We will assume no responsibility if any information provided is incorrect or incomplete that would cause the check to be paid (i.e. incorrect check number, amount, account number or date). Once placed, the stop payment order will remain in effect for six months from the date when it was authorized. An authorized business representative may renew the Stop Payment order for an additional six-month period when the expiration date arrives. You are responsible for monitoring the expiration of Stop Payments. No notice will be provided to you that a Stop Payment is expiring. A fee will be charged for each stop payment and extension of a stop payment.
In order to cancel a stop payment, an Authorized Representative is required to fax or deliver a written request to UBM. Stop payments cannot be canceled via e-mail.
Your Responsibility To Notify Us

Limitation of UBM’s Liability
If we fail or delay in making payment or transfer pursuant to your instructions, or if we make a payment or transfer in an erroneous amount which is less than the amount per your instructions, unless otherwise required by law our liability shall be limited to interest on the amount which we failed to timely pay or transfer, calculated from the date on which the payment or transfer was to be made until the date it was actually made or you canceled the instructions. We may pay such interest either to you or the intended recipient of the payment or transfer, but in no event will we be liable to both parties, and our payment to either party will fully discharge any obligation to the other. If we make a payment or transfer in an erroneous amount which exceeds the amount per your instructions, or if we permit an unauthorized payment or transfer after we have had a reasonable time to act on a notice from you of possible unauthorized use as described above, unless otherwise required by law our liability will be limited to a refund of the amount erroneously paid or transferred, plus interest thereon from the date of the payment or transfer to the date of the refund, but in no event to exceed 60 days´ interest. If we become liable to you for interest compensation under this Agreement or applicable law, such interest shall be calculated based on the average federal funds rate at the Federal Reserve Bank in the district where the Bank is headquartered for each day interest is due, computed on the basis of a 360-day year.
Unless otherwise required by law, in no event will be liable to you for special, indirect or consequential damages including, without limitation, lost profits or Attorney’s Fees, even if we are advised in advance of the possibility of such damages.
