Your acceptance of this Agreement indicates not only that you agree to the foregoing and following provisions, but also that NBF can change these terms at any time, by giving you advance notice of the change (unless we conclude that, for security purposes, the change must be made effective before you are notified). These changes may include modifications to or elimination of any of the then current terms of this Agreement and adding new terms to the Agreement.

Privacy Policy

Protecting your privacy is very important to us. At NBF, we seek to maintain a high level of information protection. Please review our Privacy Policy in order to better understand our commitment to maintaining your privacy, as well as our use and disclosure of your information.
By registering for the Services, you agree to provide us accurate, current and complete information as required during registration, and to keep this information accurate, current and complete at all time.
 

Fair Use Policy

The Services are designed to be flexible within its designed parameters. The Fair Use Policy forms a part of our terms and conditions.
 

Purpose

The Services are intended to be used to store & pay legitimate invoices for goods and services provided. NBF reserves the right to reject any bills or other images provided to us if, in our sole discretion, our acceptance of the bill or image represents a risk to business integrity or operation of the Services as a whole. For example, a bill or image can be rejected where the intended payment recipient is not able to be verified as a valid supplier of goods and services, or where the image does not have the nature of a bill.
 

Payment Authority

By registering for the Services, you agree that NBF will access funds from your Funding Accounts (Bank account/Credit card) you provide in order to pay your bills on your behalf. NBF only pays bills approved by you in your Payment Settings. NBF will access funds only as required to pay your bills and/or our fees (see Fees & Taxes below), and will do so only at a time required to ensure delivery of the payment on time or immediately for bills received near or past the Due Date indicated.

By:

  1. directing posting of your bills to us; OR

  1. uploading the bill image through your secure client login using mobile or web application; OR.

  1. attaching the supplied identity sticker to a bill and providing an image of the bill to us; OR

  2. allowing any other person to do any of the above,

You agree to provide the funds to us required to pay the bill. We will obtain these funds by debiting your nominated bank account or credit card. You also agree that we are not responsible for any overdraft or insufficient fund situation or charge (including, but not limited to, finance charges, late fees or similar charges) caused by your failure to maintain a balance in the Funding Account that is sufficient to fund all payments you initiate. You further agree that we may charge a service fee of $20.00 for any returned payment, including but not limited to returns resulting from insufficient funds in your account, the fact that your account is closed, or because you provided incorrect account or routing information to us.

You are solely responsible for any use of the stickers we supply, including unauthorised use. These stickers would be treated as any other irrevocable authority to pay. The fact that you did not authorise the use of a sticker does not relieve you of the obligation to reimburse us. In any event that you lose control of use of these stickers, you should contact us immediately and we will have the stickers deactivated.

If NBF needs your verbal authority to confirm a bill, we will verify your identity using your stored information. When verification is completed successfully, you agree to provide the funds to us required to pay the bill.

Batch Payer Agreement (BPAY)

NBF is a Participating Batch Payer of the Westpac Batch Payer (BPAY) electronic payment scheme. BPAY allows NBF to make payments on behalf of its customers to billers who accept payment through the BPAY scheme.
 
You agree to be bound to the BPAY Agreement Terms and Conditions.
 
As Principal, you authorise and agree to NBF making BPAY payments on your behalf to discharge debts to billers participating in the BPAY scheme.
 
You acknowledge and agree that this NBF service is not intended, and does not show the intention, to indicate that NBF is in the business of solely making BPAY payments on behalf of third parties. BPAY payments made on your behalf, as Principal, are made incidental to the course of NBF’s ordinary business.
 
Please read the BPAY Agreement Terms and Conditions before instructing NBF to make BPAY payments on your behalf
 

Scheduling Payment

You must select the Processing Date for any payment, or specify a payment rule in the system that automatically selects this date for you. This date should be at least seven (7) Business Days prior to the Due Date to ensure timely bill payment. It is your responsibility to schedule payments (unless you have authorised automatic full payment of the bill amount for that biller as default setting under your Payment Settings Tab) to arrive by the Due Date specified on the billing statement.
 
Bills will be paid on a date as close as possible to the Due Date indicated. Where no Due Date is specified, we will use a payment date seven (7) days after the bill date. In making payments on your behalf, we take into account delays inherent in the payment system, weekends and public holidays and any payment date adjustments you make. Where we assess a bill as time sensitive (e.g, insurance policies, fines) the bill will generally be paid slightly earlier to allow for unexpected delays which would have a detrimental effect on you.
 
Payment Cancellation Requests. You may cancel or edit any Scheduled Payment (including recurring payments) by logging into your NBF account and making those changes up until the Processing Date. There is no charge for cancelling or editing a Scheduled Payment. Once the Services have begun processing a payment, it cannot be cancelled or edited. For any scheduled recurring payments, we will continue to charge your Funding Account for that payment and for other recurring payments until the expiration date you set for the payments or the date you cancel.
 
Prohibited Payments. Payments to Payees outside of Australia or its territories are prohibited through the Services.
 
Restricted Payments. Tax payments and court-ordered payments may be scheduled through the Services, however, such payments are discouraged and must be scheduled at your own risk. In no event shall the Services be liable for any claims or damages resulting from your scheduling of these types of payments.
 
Our Right to Refuse to Make Payments. We may refuse to make any payment that we believe to be prohibited by any applicable Australian laws. If you fail to maintain a balance in the Funding Account that is sufficient to fund any payment that you initiate, we may refuse to make any subsequent payment for as long as we determine to be necessary or appropriate. We also reserve the right and will promptly notify you of our decision to refuse to make any other payment.
 

Services Guarantee

Due to circumstances beyond the control of the Services, particularly delays in handling and posting payments by Billers or financial institutions, some transactions may take longer to be credited to your account. The Services will bear responsibility for any late payment related charges up to $50.00 should a payment post after its Due Date as long as the payment was scheduled in accordance with the guidelines described under "Scheduling Payments" above, and we have issued you a confirmation number for a payment, unless we are not responsible to you for one of the reasons listed below.
 
The Services will use its best efforts to make all your payments properly. However, the Services shall incur no liable and any Service Guarantee will be void if the Services are unable to complete any payments initiated by you because of any one or more of the following circumstances:
1.Your Funding Account does not contain sufficient funds to complete the payment or the charge is rejected or returned by your bank or financial institution.
2. Your Funding Account is closed.
3. The payee rejects or returns the payment for any reason.
4. Your equipment, software or any communications link is not working properly.
5. The Services are unavailable and you know or we have told you about the problem before you send the payment.
6. You have provided us with incorrect information about the payee you wish to pay.
7. The payee mishandles or delays handling or posting any payment we send.
8. Circumstances beyond our control (such as, but not limited to, fire, flood, interference from an outside source, postal delays) prevent or delay the proper execution of the transaction and the Services have taken reasonable precautions to avoid those circumstances as contemplated in "Scheduling Payments" above.

Provided none of these foregoing exceptions are applicable, if the Services cause an incorrect amount of funds to be removed from your Funding Account or causes funds from your Funding Account to be directed to a Biller which does not comply with your Payment Instructions, the Services shall be responsible for returning the improperly transferred funds to your Funding Account, and for directing to the proper Biller any previously misdirected transactions, and, if applicable, for any late payment-related charges.
 
THIS IS OUR ONLY OBLIGATION TO YOU FOR ANY PAYMENT DELAYS OR FAILURE. IN ADDITION, IF YOU DO NOT FOLLOW THESE RULES OR IF YOU DO NOT ALLOW US ENOUGH TIME TO COMPLETE A PAYMENT, YOU ALONE ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY PENALTIES OR LATE CHARGES ON THAT PAYMENT.

Payments and other items that we determine that you need to receive (such as, but not limited to, a cheque from your Biller) will be sent to you at your designated mailing address. All other such mail (e.g, coupons, advertising, newsletters, etc.) will be shredded and discarded. While discarding, we use our judgment and are not responsible if you disagree as to our decision in that regard.
 
(ii) Packages/Junk Mail: we are not responsible for forwarding such packages to you. You must make arrangements with those parties from whom you expect packages to be sent to you. If a package is sent to you at your Processing Centre Billing Address, it will be refused and returned to the sender.
