16.      Transaction Settlement. 
(a)      PayZang and its affiliates shall establish an account with a financial institution selected by PayZang and its affiliates and will hold the funds represented by the debit and credit Entries transmitted by Merchant until all preliminary return transactions have cleared and then the funds shall be transferred, via an ACH Credit, to either the Merchant's Depository Account or the Receiver's account, as applicable. 
(b)      In the event Merchant wishes to initiate a credit Entry, Merchant shall either: 
      (i)      authorize PayZang and its affiliates to debit Merchant's Depository Account upfront in an amount authorized by Merchant that would allow Merchant to originate multiple credit Entries up to the amount of the funds debited; or 
      (ii)      authorize PayZang and its affiliates to debit Merchant's Depository Account for the amount of a specific credit Entry only. 
(c)      For all Entries, the settlement amount paid to Merchant shall be net of any returned Entries. If any debit Entry is returned to PayZang (in a timely manner as described by the Rules) and the settlement amount is not sufficient to accommodate the returned Entry, PayZang and its affiliates will debit Merchant's Depository Account for the amount of the returned Entry plus fees and costs incurred by PayZang and its affiliates. Merchant agrees to sign an authorization in the Merchant Application authorizing PayZang and its affiliates to initiate an ACH debit to charge Merchant's Depository Account or the reserve account for debits relating to credit Entries as well as any returned Entries. PayZang and its affiliates reserve the right to extend the hold period on Merchant's funds should any questionable activity occur, or if Merchant's return rate increases enough to warrant a longer hold period as required by law or the Rules. Merchant covenants and agrees that it shall be liable for any and all costs, charges and fees associated with returned Entries (whether due to a debit Entry Merchant originates or to a debit Entry PayZang and its affiliates originate against Merchant's Depository Account). Merchant further covenants and agrees that it shall not revoke or rescind authorization for the debit Entries by PayZang and its affiliates to Merchant's Depository Account. 


17.      Errors, Cancellations and Amendments to Entries. Merchant shall notify PayZang and its affiliates immediately of any Entry Merchant discovers it has initiated or authorized in error. Merchant shall have no right to cancel or amend any Entry after its receipt by PayZang and its affiliates. However, PayZang and its affiliates may, at its option, accept a cancellation or amendment by Merchant. If PayZang accepts a cancellation or amendment of an Entry, Merchant must issue the cancellation or amendment in accordance with PayZang and its affiliates's Security Procedure and PayZang and its affiliates shall use reasonable efforts to act on the request by Merchant for cancellation of an Entry prior to transmitting it to the ODFI, but PayZang and its affiliates shall have no liability if such cancellation is not effected. Merchant shall notify the Receiver of any reversing entry initiated to correct any Entry it has initiated in error. The notification to the Receiver must include the reason for the reversal and be made no later than the Settlement Date of the reversing entry. If PayZang and its affiliates accepts a cancellation or amendment of an Entry, Merchant hereby agrees to indemnify, defend all claims and hold PayZang and its affiliates harmless from any loss, damages, or expenses, including but not limited to attorneys' fees, incurred by PayZang and its affiliates as the result of its acceptance of the cancellation or amendment. 


18.      Error Detection. PayZang and its affiliates has no obligation to discover and shall not be liable to Merchant for errors made by Merchant, including but not limited to errors made in identifying the Receiver, or an Intermediary or Receiving Depository Financial Institution ("RDFI") or for errors in the amount of an Entry. PayZang and its affiliates shall likewise have no duty to discover and shall not be liable for duplicate Entries issued by Merchant. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if Merchant discovers that any Entry it has initiated was in error, it shall notify the PayZang and its affiliates of such error. If such notice is received no later than four hours prior to the ACH cutoff time, PayZang and its affiliates will utilize reasonable efforts to initiate an adjusting entry within the time limits provided by the Rules. In the event that Merchant makes an error or issues a duplicate Entry, Merchant shall indemnify, defend all claims, and hold PayZang and its affiliates harmless from any loss, damages, or expenses, including but not limited to attorney's fees, incurred by PayZang and its affiliates as result of the error or issuance of duplicate Entries. 


19.      Returned/Rejected and Chargeback Items. Merchant acknowledges that it is solely responsible for any and all returned or rejected items. Merchant hereby authorizes PayZang and its affiliates to deduct the amount of any returned or rejected item and any associated processing fees from the balance of funds currently due to Merchant. In the event there are not sufficient funds currently held by PayZang and its affiliates on Merchant's behalf, Merchant further authorizes PayZang and its affiliates to debit the Depository Account or any other deposit account maintained by Merchant, as necessary, to recover any funds for returned or rejected debit transactions in accordance with the provisions of Section 11 of this Agreement. If a cardholder disputes any transaction, if a transaction is charged back for any reason by the card issuing institution, or if PayZang or Member has any reason to believe an indebtedness previously purchased is questionable, not genuine, or is otherwise unacceptable' the amount of such indebtedness may be charged back and deducted from any payment due to Merchant or may be charged against any of Merchant's accounts or the Reserve Account (as defined below). Merchant acknowledges and agrees that it is bound by the rules of the card associations and network organizations with respect to any chargeback. Merchant further acknowledges that it is solely responsible for providing PayZang and Member with any available information to re-present a chargeback and that, regardless of any information it provides or does not provide PayZang and Member in connection with a chargeback, or any other reason, Merchant shall be solely responsible for the liability related to such chargeback. A list of some common reasons for chargebacks is contained in the Card Acceptance Guide provided, however, that such list is not exclusive and does not limit the generality of the foregoing. If any such amount is uncollectible through withholding from any payments due hereunder or through charging Merchant's accounts or the Reserve Account, Merchant shall, upon demand by PayZang, pay PayZang the full amount of the chargeback. Merchant understands that obtaining an authorization for any sale shall not constitute a guarantee of payment, and such sales slips can be retuned or charged back to Merchant like any other item hereunder. 


20.      Delay or Failure to Transfer Funds. PayZang and its affiliates shall not be liable to Merchant or Receiver for any damages of any kind for any delay in payment, including special, consequential, punitive, or indirect loss or damage. PayZang and its affiliates shall not be liable or responsible to Merchant for any delay or failure to transfer any amount hereunder for any reason including but not limited to rules, regulations, or policies of the Federal Reserve Board which place an aggregate limit on the amount Bank can transfer from time to time during any banking day. In no event shall PayZang and its affiliates be liable to Merchant for attorney's fees incurred by Merchant in any action brought by Merchant under this Agreement. 
21.      Data Retention. Merchant shall retain data on file adequate to permit remaking of Entries for 10 days following the date of their transmittal by PayZang and its affiliates as provided herein, and shall provide such data to PayZang and its affiliates upon its request. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing provisions, Merchant specifically agrees to be bound by and comply with all applicable provisions of the Rules regarding the retention of documents or any record, including, without limitation, Merchant's responsibilities to retain all items, source documents, and records of authorization in accordance with the Rules.

 
22.      Rejection of Entries. PayZang and its affiliates may reject any transaction or file of transactions which does not comply with the requirements of this Agreement and may reject any transaction if Merchant is not otherwise in compliance with the terms of the Agreement. PayZang and its affiliates has no obligation to notify Merchant of the rejection of an Entry but PayZang may do so at its option. PayZang and its affiliates shall have no liability to Merchant for rejection of an Entry nor for any failure to notify Merchant of the rejection of an Entry. In the event any transactions are rejected by the ODFI or PayZang and its affiliates for any reason whatsoever, it shall be the responsibility of Merchant to remake such Entries. Merchant shall retain and provide PayZang and its affiliates, upon request, all information necessary to remake any Entry or file of Entries within 10 business days after the Settlement date. 

CARD PROCESSING SERVICES


23.      Credit Card Gateway. Merchant desires PayZang to forward credit card transactions to Merchant's credit card processor. Merchant acknowledges and agrees that PayZang's sole responsibility under this Agreement to Merchant as it relates to credit card transactions is that PayZang shall send credit card transactions transmitted by Merchant to Merchant's credit card processor. Merchant further acknowledges that PayZang shall not perform any type of edit or review of the credit card transactions and shall transmit them to Merchant's credit card processor in the same format and condition as the transactions were received from Merchant. PayZang will not settle for any credit card transactions received from Merchant and will not process any credit card transactions refused or returned by Merchant's credit card processor. Merchant will incur SEPARATE charges from Merchant's credit card processor for the servicing of its credit card merchant account as documented in the agreement between Merchant and Merchant's credit card processor. Merchant understands that PayZang is not a party to that Agreement, and that the rates, fees, and charges associated with its merchant account are strictly between Merchant and Merchant's credit card processor. Additionally, in the event that Merchant enters into a lease or financing terms, Merchant understands that PayZang is not a party to that Agreement, and that the terms and conditions of the lease or financing is strictly between Merchant, the lease/finance Merchant, and Merchant's credit card processor, acting independently of PayZang. 23.1 Certain Merchant Responsibilities.

Merchant agrees that the deposit of funds to the PayZang Designated Account shall discharge Acquirer of its settlement obligation to Merchant, and that any dispute regarding the receipt or amount of settlement shall be between PayZang and Merchant. Acquirer will debit the PayZang Designated Account for funds owed to Acquirer as a result of the Services provided hereunder, unless a Merchant-owned account is otherwise designated below. Further, if a cardholder disputes a transaction, if a transaction is charged back for any reason, or if PayZang or Acquirer reasonably believe a transaction is unauthorized or otherwise unacceptable, the amount of such transaction may be charged back and debited from Merchant if settled to Merchant-owned account or debited from the PayZang Designated Account if settled to that account.
