Each User is solely responsible for any and all of its own User Content and the accuracy and completeness of associated information provided to Zeffry through the Services. User agrees and understands it is User’s responsibility to timely provide Zeffry with the information required for Zeffry to appropriately provide the Services. Furthermore, User will be solely liable and accepts sole responsibility for all actions taken under any account that User has access to.

User agrees to give Zeffry permission to verify and/or obtain record information that identifies the individual who creates an Account with Zeffry or is the intended user of such Account. Users consent to authorize Zeffry to obtain credit reports about User and User’s business, and provide any adverse credit information pertaining to User or User’s business to others, which may include the IRS (Internal Revenue Service) or applicable state taxing authorities.
If any errors or inaccurate Services are caused directly or indirectly from any information provided by User, Zeffry will attempt to correct such error or inaccuracy, but makes no warranties or guarantees that any error or inaccuracy may be remedied in whole or in part.
In performing the Services, User agrees that Zeffry is not acting in a fiduciary capacity for User or its benefit. In addition, neither use of the Services nor anything contained in these Terms relieves User of User’s obligations under federal or state laws or regulations to retain records relating to the data contained in Zeffry’s database. Zeffry will provide User the Services in accordance with these Terms. Within a minimum of ten (10) business days before the initial payroll processing date, User must submit all completed and executed documents and information Zeffry requires to provide the Services. Such documents may include any federal, state or local powers of attorney required by Zeffry, User Account information and any additional information requested by Zeffry. Subsequent to the initial payroll processing, User will complete and execute any renewals, amendments or replacements of the aforementioned documents which Zeffry deems necessary.
a) App Specific Services: Any employee Users may use the App to view and download any payroll related information available based on the applicable Services subscription plan, such as, paystubs, W2, request sick leave or clock in/clock out. Additionally, all Users may be able to edit certain personal or Account information which had already been provided using the Site.
ACCOUNT DATA VERIFICATION
a) Zeffry will notify User via email, SMS (if User has accepted text notifications), or by other means when all data necessary to begin the Services has been received and the Account enrollment process has been completed. User shall then, prior to submitting its first payroll, review for completeness and accuracy the Payroll Information (as hereinafter defined). For purposes of these Terms, “Payroll Information” shall mean all information posted for User’s review on the Services, including but not limited to, that which is used to calculate and pay employee payroll, track User defined employee benefits, pay payroll taxes to applicable taxing agencies in compliance with the laws and regulations of such taxing agencies, produce payroll tax returns and W-2 statements or remit federal and state tax returns. User must correct any and all incorrect or missing Payroll Information, either by itself or by notifying Zeffry within any time period as specified by Zeffry. User shall be fully responsible for the accuracy of all information supplied by it and/or approved by it, including, without limitation any IRS or other penalties and/or interest arising therefrom.
b) User agrees that by submitting each payroll (including the first payroll): (i) User has approved all Payroll Information, (ii) User has represented and warranted to Zeffry that no Payroll Information submitted to Zeffry will result in Entries that would violate the sanctions program of the Office of Foreign Assets Control of the U.S. Treasury or any other applicable laws or regulations, (iii) User has waived and released any claim against Zeffry arising out of any errors in the Payroll Information which User has not itself corrected or has not requested Zeffry to correct, and (iv) any subsequent request for corrections will be considered special handling and additional fees may be charged. Under all circumstances, final audit responsibility rests with User. Zeffry will not have any responsibility for verifying the accuracy of any data User provides or directly inputs via the Services or any other method.
c) Zeffry may permit, but shall not be obligated to permit a Payroll Approver user, a designated Signatory and/or designated Account Administrator user to communicate with Zeffry by telephone, email or any other means regarding the Services. Zeffry has implemented security procedures for the purpose of verifying the identity of the aforementioned Users, including the use of unique security identification numbers generated by the Services and other security protocols. User acknowledges that any such telephone communication or electronic mail communication or other means of communication will be made available for User’s benefit and convenience, that the security procedures instituted by Zeffry are commercially reasonable methods of providing security, that any Payroll Information, Entries or other instructions communicated to Zeffry will be deemed to have been fully authorized by User and User shall be fully responsible for the accuracy of such information including, without limitation, any IRS or other penalties and/or interest arising therefrom; and that, notwithstanding such deemed authorization, Zeffry may in its sole discretion refuse to accept or act upon any such instructions.
User’s Company Security Procedure
a) User will designate and authorize one or more individual users of the Services with authority to act on behalf of and to bind the User’s company actions (designated as “Payroll Approver,” “Signatory” and “Account Administrator”), which authorized individuals will access the Services by entering a confidential user ID and password created through their specific Account to have authority to review, modify and/or approve on behalf of User’s company. The Payroll Approver user will approve and submit the Payroll Information thereby authorizing Zeffry to create and transmit ACH credit or debit entries (“Entries”; each, an “Entry”) necessary to process User’s payroll and payroll tax transactions, by entering its confidential user ID and password which he or she has created by following the instructions provided on the specified portion of the Site.
b) User acknowledges that Zeffry has implemented the security procedures described above for the purpose of verifying the authenticity of an instruction approving, releasing, cancelling or amending the Payroll Information used to create Entries (each, a “Payment Order”) to be originated by Zeffry for the benefit of User, and not for the purpose of detecting errors in Payment Orders. User has reviewed various security procedures including the foregoing and has determined that the security procedures designated above constitute a commercially reasonable method of providing security against unauthorized Payment Orders and best meets User’s requirements, given the size, type and frequency of the Payment Orders it will issue to Zeffry.
c) If User believes or suspects that its ID or password or related instructions have been known or accessed by unauthorized persons, User will immediately notify Zeffry in a manner affording Zeffry a reasonable opportunity to act on the information, and User acknowledges that failure to immediately notify Zeffry could result in loss of funds and unauthorized access to confidential information concerning User and its company. Zeffry reserves the right to prevent access to the Service should Zeffry have reason to believe the confidentiality of the security procedure or the confidentiality of User.
d) User will be bound by any Payment Order received and verified by Zeffry in compliance with the designated security procedure, and User shall indemnify and not hold Zeffry liable from and against any loss suffered or liability incurred by, or arising from, the execution of a Payment Order in good faith and in compliance with such security procedures.
e) If a Payment Order describes the receiver inconsistently by name and account number, Zeffry may in its sole discretion refuse to accept or may return the Payment Order. If a Payment Order describes a participating financial institution inconsistently by name and identification number, the identification number may be relied upon as the proper identification of the financial institution. If a Payment Order identifies a non-existent or unidentifiable person or account as the receiver or the receiver’s account, Zeffry may in its sole discretion refuse to accept or may return the Payment Order.
a) The Services will enable User to enter the Payroll Information and to approve and submit it to Zeffry for creation, formatting and transmission of Entries in accordance with the Rules (as defined below). Zeffry may reject any Payroll Information or Entry which does not comply with the requirements in these Terms or the Rules or with respect to which User’s Account does not contain sufficient available funds to pay for the Entry. If any Payroll Information or Entry is rejected, Zeffry will make a reasonable effort to notify User promptly so that User may correct such Payroll Information or request that Zeffry correct the Entry and resubmit. A notice of rejection will be effective when given. Zeffry will have no liability to User by reason of the rejection of any Payroll Information or Entry, the fact that notice is not given at an earlier time than that provided for in these Terms or for any loss resulting from Zeffry’s failure to provide notice. If User requests that Zeffry repair an Entry on User’s behalf, Zeffry may endeavor to do so; provided, however, that Zeffry will not be liable for its failure to make any requested repair.
b) User acknowledges it is the originator of all Entries. Furthermore, User will have no right to cancel or amend any Payroll Information received by Zeffry after it has been approved by a Payroll Approver User and submitted to Zeffry. However, if User’s request complies with the security procedure, Zeffry may use reasonable efforts to act on it prior to transmitting the Entries to the ACH or gateway operator, but will have no liability if the cancellation or amendment is not acted upon. User will reimburse Zeffry for any expenses, losses or damages Zeffry may incur in affecting or attempting to affect User’s request.
c) Except for Entries created from Payroll Information that has been reapproved and resubmitted by User in accordance with the requirements of these Terms, Zeffry will have no obligation to retransmit a returned Entry to the ACH or gateway operator if Zeffry complied with the terms of these Terms with respect to the original Entry.
d) At User’s request, Zeffry will make a reasonable effort to reverse an Entry, but will have no responsibility for the failure of any other person or entity to honor User’s request. User agrees to reimburse Zeffry for any expenses incurred in attempting to honor such request.
e) Zeffry will process the Payroll Information and Entries in accordance with its then current processing schedule, provided (i) the Payroll Information is approved by User and received by Zeffry no later than User’s applicable cut-off time on a business day and (ii) the ACH is open for business on that business day. If Zeffry receives approved Payroll Information after User’s cut-off time, Zeffry will not be responsible for failure to process the Payroll Information on that day. If any of the requirements of clause (i) or (ii) of this Subsection are not met, Zeffry will use reasonable efforts to process the Payroll Information and transmit the Entries to the ACH with the next regularly scheduled file created by Zeffry which is on a business day on which the ACH is open for business.
f) Origination, receipt, return, adjustment, correction, cancellation, amendment and transmission of Entries must be in accordance with the Operating Rules of the ACH in which Zeffry is a participant and, with respect to credit entries which constitute Payment Orders, Article 4A of the Uniform Commercial Code as adopted under California law, and as both are amended from time to time (the “Rules”). User agrees that it will not submit Payroll Information that will result in Entries that would violate the sanctions program of the Office of Foreign Assets Control of the U.S. Treasury or any other applicable laws or regulations. User acknowledges that it has had an opportunity to review and agrees to comply with and be bound by the Rules. User will be responsible for promptly obtaining all future amendments.
g) User expressly acknowledges that Zeffry does not intentionally or knowingly engage in or support International ACH Transactions (“IATs”), as defined in the Operating Rules of the National Automated Clearing House Association (“NACHA Rules”). User represents and warrants that (i) the direct funding for the Entries originated by Zeffry on behalf of User does not come from or involve a financial agency office that is located outside the territorial jurisdiction of the United States; (ii) User will not instruct Zeffry to create, originate or transmit Entries that are IATs or Entries using a Standard Entry Class Code (as defined in the NACHA Rules) other than IAT if such Entries are required to be IATs under the NACHA Rules; and (iii) User will not engage in any act or omission that causes or results in Zeffry creating, originating or transmitting an IAT or a payment that should have been categorized as an IAT pursuant to the NACHA Rules. Zeffry may, in its sole discretion, temporarily or permanently suspend providing the Service to User, without liability, if Zeffry has reason to believe that User has breached any of foregoing representations and warranties in this paragraph.
Tax Services; Liability
In order for the Service to be instituted, User must submit accurate wage and payroll information to Zeffry during the enrollment process. The wage and payroll information must be reconciled with User’s payroll tax returns for the current calendar year and User’s wage and payroll tax information for the current quarter. Thereafter, User shall timely and accurately (a) update all wage and payroll information as necessary to reflect changes and (b) respond with additional information requested from time to time by Zeffry. It is User’s responsibility to submit complete and accurate information to Zeffry in connection with the Service. Any penalty or interest incurred due to inaccurate information provided by User will be the sole responsibility of User. User further agrees to not hold Zeffry accountable for such liability. Zeffry, at its option, may decide not to file User’s payroll tax returns, pay User’s payroll taxes or otherwise process User’s payroll if there are any unresolved problems with any information requested by Zeffry or submitted by User. Zeffry’s sole liability and User’s sole remedy for Zeffry’s negligent failure to perform the payroll tax portion of the Service shall be (i) Zeffry will remit the payroll taxes received from User to the appropriate taxing authority and (ii) Zeffry will reimburse User or pay directly to the appropriate taxing authority any penalties resulting from such negligent error or omission by Zeffry.

In case of force majeure, we are not obliged to fulfill our obligations. In that case we may either suspend our obligations for the duration of the state of force majeure or definitely repudiate these Terms.
Events of force majeure are all circumstances external to our will and control that render the respect of our obligations completely or partly impossible. Such events include, but are not limited to, strikes, fire, disruption of energy supplies or telecommunication networks or communication systems, the temporary down-time of the App or Site, inability to timely provide the Services, inability to process payment and/or any other third-party obligations.
Although this Site and App may be accessible worldwide, we make no representation that materials on this App or the Services provided through this App are appropriate or available for use in locations outside the United States of America. We make no claims that the App or Site or any of the Services are accessible or appropriate outside of the United States. Access to the Services may not be legal by certain persons or in certain countries. If you access the Services from outside the United States, you do so on your own initiative and are responsible for compliance with local laws.
The Services may be subject to U.S. export control laws and may be subject to export or import regulations in other countries. You agree not to export, reexport, or transfer, directly or indirectly, any U.S. technical data acquired from Zeffry, or any products or services utilizing such data, in violation of the United States export laws or regulations.
In the event of any dispute, controversy or claim between the parties hereto arising out of or relating to these Terms, the parties shall first seek to resolve the dispute in good faith through informal discussion. You agree that before initiating any dispute or arbitration proceeding, the parties will attempt to negotiate an informal resolution of any dispute and then proceed with mediation.
If a resolution is not achieved through informal resolution or mediation, it will be settled by individual (not class or class-wide) binding arbitration administered by the American Arbitration Association (AAA) in accordance with the then current Commercial Financial Disputes Arbitration Rules, including any expedited procedures. A demand that a claim be submitted to arbitration may be made before the initiation of any legal proceeding or within ninety (90) days following the service of a complaint, third party complaint, cross-claim or counterclaim and if a party in a pending legal proceeding demands a claim to be submitted to arbitration, the party initiating the action will immediately dismiss the legal proceeding and file the claim in arbitration. Arbitration hearings will be held in the County of San Francisco, California. A single arbitrator will be appointed by the AAA and shall be a practicing attorney or retired judge having experience with and knowledge of payroll and online commerce law. The arbitrator will follow the law and will give effect to any applicable statutes of limitation. The prevailing party shall be entitled to an award of the costs and expenses of the arbitration, including attorneys’ fees and expert witness fees. A judgment on the award may be entered by any court having jurisdiction. The parties agree and acknowledge that this agreement evidences a transaction involving interstate commerce and that the Federal Arbitration Act (Title 9 of the United States Code) shall govern the interpretation, enforcement, and proceedings pursuant to the arbitration clause in these Terms.
CLASS ACTION AND JURY TRIAL WAIVER. TO THE EXTENT PERMISSIBLE BY LAW, ALL CLAIMS MUST BE BROUGHT IN THE PARTIES' INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR COLLECTIVE ACTION (COLLECTIVELY “CLASS ACTION WAIVER”). THE ARBITRATOR MAY NOT CONSOLIDATE MORE THAN ONE PERSON'S CLAIMS OR ENGAGE IN ANY CLASS ARBITRATION. USER AGREES THAT, BY ENTERING INTO THESE TERMS, USER AND ZEFFRY ARE EACH VOLUNTARILY AND IRREVOCABLY WAIVING THE RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY OR TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION. Further, if the parties’ dispute is resolved through arbitration, neither AAA nor the arbitrator may consolidate another person’s claims with your claims or otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding for any purpose. If this specific provision is found to be unenforceable, then the entirety of this Section shall be null and void.
In any lawsuit in which (1) the complaint is filed as a class action or collective action; and (2) the civil court of competent jurisdiction in which the complaint was filed finds the Class Action Waiver is unenforceable (and such finding is confirmed by appellate review if review is sought), the Class Action Waiver shall be severable from these Terms and in such instances, the class action, collective action must be litigated in a civil court of competent jurisdiction and not as a class or collective.
In the event that any provision of these Terms is determined to be unlawful, void or unenforceable, such provision shall nonetheless be enforceable to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, and the unenforceable portion shall be deemed to be severed from these Terms, such determination shall not affect the validity and enforceability of any other remaining provisions.
You shall not have the right to assign these Terms, any documents incorporated by reference or any part of the results and proceeds to any third party. Zeffry may assign these Terms at their sole discretion to any other party.
All notices given hereunder shall be in writing (email acceptable), and shall be sent by registered mail to the parties at their respective addresses. Either party may, by like notice, designate a different address for the serving of notices.
In the event that any dispute between you and Zeffry should result in litigation or arbitration, the prevailing party in such dispute shall be entitled to recover from the other party all reasonable fees, costs and expenses of enforcing any right of the prevailing party, including without limitation, reasonable attorneys’ fees and expenses. In addition to the foregoing award of attorneys’ fees, the prevailing party shall be entitled to its attorneys’ fees incurred in any post judgment proceedings to enforce any such judgment.
