    2. When Old Second National Bank receives a Payment Instruction from you, you as a Sender authorize Old Second National Bank to initiate an ACH debit to your Transaction Account and remit funds on your behalf.

    4. Old Second National Bank will use reasonable efforts to make all your payments properly. However, Old Second National Bank shall incur no liability if Old Second National Bank is unable to complete any payments initiated by you because of the existence of any one or more of the following circumstances:

Neither the Sender nor Receiver may use a P.O. Box as a postal address. Old Second National Bank will make a reasonable effort to stop or recover a payment made to the wrong person or entity once informed, but Old Second National Bank does not guarantee such recovery and will bear no responsibility or liability for damages resulting from incorrect information entered by the Sender or Receiver.

Cutoff Times.  So long as a Receiver registers for receipt of payment through the Service as described above, the Cutoff Time to process a payment on the following Business Day is 2:00 PM Central Time.  Payment Instructions completed prior to the Cutoff Time will be processed by the next Business Day. Payment Instructions completed after 2:00 PM Central Time will be processed and paid within the following two (2) Business Days. 
  7. Payment Cancellation Requests and Refused Payments. Sender may cancel a payment at any time until it begins processing.
