Pay People - Powered by Neural Payments
Pay People, is a service that allows you to send money via Mobile and Online Banking to others using a cell phone number or an email address through the Neural Payments network and third party platforms. Sending money does not require you to have a Neural Payments Account, but the following rules do apply regarding Neural Payments’s role in processing P2P Payments transactions that use the Neural Payments network.

Neural Payment's Relationship with You
Neural Payments is a Payments Service Provider. Neural Payments helps you make payments to third parties. Neural Payments is an independent contractor for all purposes, except that Neural Payments acts as your agent with respect to the custody of your funds only. Neural Payments does not have control of, or liability for, the products or services that are paid for with our service. We do not guarantee the identity of any recipient or ensure that a recipient will complete a transaction.

You may not copy, imitate, or use them without Neural Payments's prior written consent. In addition, all page headers, custom graphics, button icons, and scripts are service marks, trademarks, and/or trade dress of Neural Payments.

Eligibility for P2P Payments Identity Authentication
You authorize Bank of Washington, directly or through third parties, to make any inquiries considered necessary to validate your identity. This may include asking you for further information, requiring you to take steps to confirm ownership of your email address or financial accounts, ordering a credit report and verifying your Information against third party databases, or through other sources. Bank of Washington will, at its sole discretion, authorize the use of P2P and may at its sole discretion disallow the use of P2P payments by any Bank of Washington card holder.

Sending Money via Mobile and Digital Banking P2P Payments

Sending Limits. Neural Payments may, at its discretion, impose limits on the amount of money you can send through the P2P Payments service (in addition to any limits set by us). The daily transfer limit is $1,000. The monthly transfer limit is $4,000. The Transfer Limitations noted above may be changed at any time by Bank of Washington without prior notice to the Pay People users.

Transfers. When a transfer is sent the funds are immediately transferred from your account. If the recipient is a part of the Neural Payments network the funds are immediately credited to their account. If the recipient is not a part of the Neural Payments Network the funds will be moved to a holding account where they await a response from the recipient declaring how they would like to receive the funds. You agree that such requests constitute your authorization to us and Neural Payments to make the Transfers. Once you have provided your authorization for the Transfer, you may not be able to cancel the electronic Transfer.

Refused and Refunded Transactions. When you send money, the recipient is not required to accept it. You agree that you will not hold Neural Payments or the Bank of Washington liable for any damages resulting from a recipient's decision not to accept a payment made through the service. We will return any unclaimed, refunded or denied payment to your Account within 24 hours of the date you initiate payment. If a payment is unclaimed, denied or refunded for any reason, we will return the money to your Account. For PayPal or Venmo transfers, you can request to cancel a transaction at any time prior to the recipient declaring how they would like to receive their funds.

How to Notify Us of Unauthorized Transfer, Lost Device, Error, or Inquiry
If you believe that an error has occurred or a transaction has been made without your authorization, notifying Bank of Washington promptly is the best way to keep your possible losses down. If you tell us within 2 business days after you learn of the loss, you can lose no more than $50 if someone used your account without your permission. If you do NOT tell us within 2 business days after you learn of the loss, and we can prove we could have stopped someone from using your card without your permission if you had told us, you could lose as much as $500.

Also, if your statement shows transfers that you did not make, tell us at once. We must hear from you no later than 60 days after the date we send the first statement on which the problem or error appears. If you do not tell us within 60 days after the statement was mailed to you, you may not get back any money you lost after the 60 days if we can prove that we could have stopped someone from taking the money if you had told us in time. If a good reason (such as a long trip or a hospital stay) kept you from telling us, we will extend the time periods

You must include the following information: Your name and Account number; a description of the error, loss and/or Transfer that you are unsure about, and explain as clearly as you can why you believe it is an error or why you need more information; and, the dollar amount of the suspected error or unauthorized Transfer.

If you tell us orally, we may require that you send us your complaint or question in writing within 10 Business Days.
How you can notify us:

Claims, Limitation of Liability, No Warranty
You agree that within 10 days after you receive notification that your Pay People request has been executed, you will tell the Bank of Washington of any errors, delays, or other problems related to your request. If your funds Transfer request is delayed or erroneously executed as a result of the Bank of Washington’s error, the Bank of Washington’s sole obligation to you is to pay or refund such amounts as may be required by applicable law. If you initiate a payment to a party or payee to which you did not intend, you are responsible to contact the receiving party to have the funds returned. Bank of Washington or any of its payment processors are not responsible for payments which were made in error by you or anyone you authorized to make payments on your behalf.
