1. Information We Collect.

 

          Policy – It is our policy to collect only the personally identifiable information (information that identifies you individually) that we need to provide the services we offer with the quality you desire and deserve.

          HAC Customers – If you are a customer of HAC, this personally identifiable information may include your name, home address, mailing address, zip code, age, telephone numbers, HAC account number, social security number, credit card number, bank account number, user IDs, passwords, email addresses, and other information as provided to us online or as a customer of HAC. We take reasonable steps to protect your account information from unauthorized access.

          Site Visitors – When you access our Site, we may automatically collect access log information about your visit, including information such as the Internet Protocol (IP) addresses assigned (numbers assigned to your computer while online), bandwidth used, system and connection performance, browsers used, dates and times of access, and Internet resource requests, including requests to access web pages. We may store emails sent and received.

          Online Registrants – In visiting our Site, if you register with us or participate in an online transaction, we may ask for certain personally identifiable information, this personally identifiable information may include your name, home address, mailing address, zip code, age, telephone numbers, HAC account number, social security number, credit card number, bank account number, user IDs, passwords, email addresses, and other information as provided to us online or as a customer of HAC.

          Cookies – We, or a vendor that places advertising on our Site, may use "cookies" to collect information about your visit to our Site and to manage information concerning your preferences. A "cookie" is a small computer code added to a file on your computer as a record of its visit. It does not collect or provide your name or any other personal information about you. It can, however, be used by the website that placed it to note information about your visit, such as your type of web browser, operating system and Internet Protocol ("IP") address, to better tailor the Site for you. It can also be used to recognize you when you log in as a registered user or as a repeat visitor returning to our Site. This allows us to tailor our Site by remembering you and any options you select. We may share non-personal information obtained from the varying kinds of cookies and web beacons (see below) with vendors, advertisers and others. You can control what cookies are accepted by your computer through the settings on your web browser or by deleting them from your files. Doing so, however, may limit the personalization available to you.

          Third-Party Cookies and Web Beacons – These forms of computer code are sometimes placed by advertisers or others with connection to a webpage and may be read by the advertisement’s provider. They may use a form of code called a "web beacon" or "clear GIF." These are usually contained in a transparent image on a page or in an image on an email message and serve as a way to gather information about your visit, such as your Internet Protocol Address and information or statistics about your visit. As with cookies, you can use your browser settings to control web beacons.

          Advertisers and Other Websites – We do not control the privacy policies of advertisers or of websites you may link to from our Site or by using our services. You should review their websites for questions about their Internet security and privacy.

 

2. Use and Sharing.

 

          Use Policy – We consider any personally identifiable information we receive about you to be confidential, and it is our policy to use it only in providing our Site and account services - from sales, to operations, administration, advertising, marketing, support, maintenance, communications with you, billing, collection and in other ways related to our services. We may also use such information in dealing with fraud and unauthorized use of our services. HAC may associate personal account information with data from third parties about you or similar persons to better predict your service preferences for use in programming, advertising transactions and to market our services to you.

          Aggregate Information – We may use aggregate information about our customers and Site visitors for a variety of purposes. Such aggregate information does not identify individual customers. We may share such aggregate and related demographic information with third parties.

          Retention PolicyHAC may retain personal customer information in its regular business records. Our security measures for this information are discussed below.

          Sharing Policy – It is our overall policy not to disclose to others outside of HAC and our affiliates, vendors, business partners and the Merchant with whom you opened your HAC account any personally identifiable information about our customers without their prior written or electronic consent. We do not sell or provide your personal information to parties unconnected with the services we provide without your permission. We also share your personally identifiable information with our business partners who assist us by performing core services (such as hosting, billing, fulfillment, or data storage and security) related to our operation of the Site. Those business partners have all agreed to uphold the same standards of security and confidentiality that we have promised to you in this Online Privacy Policy, and they will only use your personally identifiable information to carry out their specific business obligations to HAC.

          Special Exceptions – We reserve the right to disclose personally identifiable information in our possession if we have a good faith belief that it is necessary to: (1) comply with the law or legal process served on us; (2) protect and defend our rights or property or those of others; (3) respond to fraud, abuse or unauthorized reception; (4) enforce our Internet Service Agreement and Terms of Use, our Acceptable Use Policy or related standards; or (5) act in an emergency to protect your safety or that of another. We may also share information if we sell or transfer all or a portion of our business operations, merge or combine with another organization.

          Third Parties – We sometimes use affiliates, vendors or third party partners in association with this Site and may provide personally identifiable information about users for such purposes. In providing such information, we require that the third party partners agree to uphold the same standards of security and confidentiality that we have promised to you in this Online Privacy Policy, and they will only use your personally identifiable information to carry out their specific business obligations and services to HAC. If you do not want us to share your personally identifiable information with any third parties, please contact us at one of the following:

 

Email: Visit https://www.homeacceptance.net and check under "Contact Us" to fill out the email form.
Phone: Visit
https://www.homeacceptance.net and check under "Contact Us" for HAC’s Phone Numbers.
U.S. Mail: Visit
https://www.homeacceptance.net and check under "Contact Us" for HAC’s Mailing Address.

 

Please understand that such a request will severely limit your ability to take advantage of all of the features and services we offer on the Site.

        Internet Communications – We may, retain and provide emails sent to us to appropriate authorities if we are legally required to do so.

 

3. Law Enforcement.

 

          Legal Requirements – Our policy is to cooperate as required by law, but to provide only such information as the law requires. We do not assume any duty to notify you of receipt of any legal requests.

          Internet Information – The law does permit us to disclose to law enforcement, voluntarily and without prior notice, customer information, including the contents of communications, if we reasonably believe that an emergency involving immediate danger of death or serious physical injury requires such disclosure without delay.

 

4. Internet Security.

 

          Taking Proper Precautions – Maintaining the security of your own personal computer is an important part of protecting your own privacy and of helping us protect our network and our customers’ service. You should use and update regularly your antivirus software, firewall and your operating system to prevent unauthorized access by others and harm from various forms of viruses. Persons with questionable intent may use the Internet or email to pose as someone you trust or do business with. You should always be sure who you are dealing with before responding with personal information. To avoid all these and other forms of attacks, we encourage you to visit the Federal Trade Commission ("FTC") for updates and tips on protecting yourself.

          Personal Information – We use "Secure Socket Layer" encryption technology when collecting certain personal information through our Site. You can identify the use of such protection by looking for "https" in the Internet url or page address or a closed lock symbol if you are using Internet Explorer. We protect personally identifiable information found in our most sensitive databases in encrypted formats within controlled and secure environments with restricted access. While we attempt to ensure the integrity and security of our network and computer systems, we cannot guarantee that our security measures will prevent unauthorized access.

          Access by Others – It is possible for use of the Internet to be accessed or intercepted by third parties. Moreover, since we cannot control websites or Internet services operated by third parties, we recommend that you review the terms of service and privacy policies of those websites and services.

          Lost or Stolen Information - You must promptly notify us if your credit card, user name, or password is lost, stolen, or used without permission. In such an event, we will remove that credit card number, user name, or password from your account and update our records accordingly.

          Public Information - The Site contains links to other websites. We are not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of such websites.

 

5. Spam. HAC works hard to prevent and to block spam and we encourage your help by preventing unauthorized access to your computer. The law permits companies like HAC to use email to send transactional or relationship messages, such as in confirming that a service has been established or providing information regarding changes in service. If you prefer, you may opt-out of marketing messages we may send by notifying us in response to any you may receive.

 

6. Customer Access to Information. For registered Site users, we maintain a procedure to help the registered user confirm that their personally identifiable information remains correct and up-to-date. At any time, you may visit your registered personal profile at http://www.homeacceptanecorp.net/.

8. Updates and Changes to the Online Privacy Policy. Developments in the Internet, the law, our offerings and our Site may cause us to change this Online Privacy Policy from time to time. Any such changes will be prospective and will not affect information collected prior to the change in policy. We reserve the right, at any time and without notice, to add to, change, update, or modify this Online Privacy Policy, simply by posting such change, update, or modification on the Site and without any other notice to you.

11. California Online Privacy Protection Act Notice.

 

(1) Home Acceptance Corporation does not track online users, and therefore does not use "do not track" signals.

(2) Home Acceptance Corporation does not authorize the collection of online users’ information for third party use through advertising technologies without separate online user’s consent.

 

To learn more about DNT and Home Acceptance Corporation’s DNT practices, please read on:

 

On September 27, 2013, California Governor Jerry Brown signed into law A.B. 370, amending the California Online Privacy Protection Act (CalOPPA) to require website operators like Home Acceptance Corporation to disclose: (1)how Home Acceptance Corporation responds to "Do Not Track Signals"(DNT); and (2)whether third parties collect personally identifiable information (PII) about users when they visit the Home Acceptance Corporation website.

 

Do Not Track:

 

What is DNT? DNT is the concept that has been promoted by regulatory authorities, in particular the U.S. Federal Trade Commission (FTC), for the Internet industry to develop and implement a mechanism for allowing Internet users to control the tracking of their online activities across websites.

 

What is a DNT signal? Currently, various browsers - including Internet Explorer, Firefox, and Safari - offer a DNT option that relies on a technology known as a DNT header that sends a signal to websites' visited by the browser user about the user's DNT preference. You can usually access your browser's DNT option in your browser's preferences.

 

Is there a DNT technology standard? The World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) has been working with industry groups, Internet browsers, technology companies, and regulators to develop a DNT technology standard. While some progress has been made on this issue, progress has been slow, and to date no standard has been adopted. Without an industry standard for DNT, users cannot know how any given company abides by a DNT signal they receive from browser headers. LinkedIn is committed to remaining apprised of the W3C efforts to develop a DNT standard.

 

How does Home Acceptance Corporation respond to the signal? Home Acceptance Corporation takes privacy and security very seriously, and strives to put our customers first in all aspects of our business. With regard to DNT, Home Acceptance Corporation currently does not respond to DNT signals in browsers because it doesn't track individual online users across the web.

 

Does Home Acceptance Corporation permit third parties to collect personally identifiable information about an individual consumer's online activities over time and across different Web sites when a consumer uses the Home Acceptance Corporation's site?  Home Acceptance Corporation does not authorize the collection of PII from its online users through advertising technologies deployed in ads that may appear on Home Acceptance Corporation’s site without separate consent.

Information We Collect. Personally Identifiable Information – In providing services to you, we ask for certain "personally identifiable information"; that is, information that identifies you individually ("your information"). Your information may include, without limitation,: name, home address, billing address, telephone numbers, social security number, driver's license number, services you have selected, demographic information, user IDs, passwords, email addresses, correspondence and communications records. We maintain customer information concerning credit, billing and payment and services provided and other service-related functions. In providing our services, we may also collect other information concerning your preferences to aid in customer support.

 

It is our policy to collect only the personal information needed to provide the services we offer with the quality you desire and deserve. It is also our policy to keep that information secure. We take reasonable precautions to identify you or your authorized representative when we receive an inquiry on your account. We also take reasonable steps to protect your information from unauthorized access. We sometimes collect personal information for special reasons, such as registering at our Web site. In these instances, you will be notified before it is collected, told how it will be used and may elect not to participate.

 

● Internet Services. Like most Internet service providers, we may automatically collect general information, such as the Internet Protocol (IP) addresses assigned (an identifier assigned to your computer while online), bandwidth used, system and connection performance, browsers used, dates and times of access, and Internet resource requests, including requests to access web pages. Since we cannot control Web sites or Internet services operated by third parties, we recommend that you review the terms of service and privacy policies of those Web sites and services that you use. You can find more detailed information concerning our Online Privacy Policy at https://www.homeacceptance.net/.

 

● Use and Sharing.

 

Use Policy – We consider your information confidential, and use it only in providing our services for such things as operations, administration, support, network management, maintenance, customer care, communications with you, billing and collection, and for accounting and tax purposes. We may also use such information in dealing with fraud and unauthorized use of our services. We use aggregate information about our customers and their usage for a variety of purposes. Such aggregate information does not identify individual customers. We may share such aggregate information with third parties, but will not share your own information without your permission. HAC may associate your information with aggregate information or with information from others to better offer service preferences to you.

 

Sharing Policy – It is our policy not to disclose any personally identifiable information about you to others outside of HAC and our affiliates, merchant dealers who opened your account, vendors and business partners without your prior consent. We do not sell or provide your personal information to parties unrelated to the services we provide without your permission. As a further measure, you can affirmatively opt out of such sharing by writing to the return address on your billing statement, or you may contact us at one of the following, but understand that such a request will limit your ability to use the features and services we offer on the Site:

 

Email: Visit https://www.homeacceptance.net and check under "Contact Us" to fill out the email form.
Phone: Visit
https://www.homeacceptance.net and check under "Contact Us" for HAC’s Phone Numbers.
U.S. Mail: Visit
https://www.homeacceptance.net and check under "Contact Us" for HAC’s Mailing Address.

 

Special Exceptions – We reserve the right to disclose your information if we have a good faith belief that it is necessary to: (1) comply with the law or legal process served on us; (2) protect and defend our rights or property or those of others; (3) respond to fraud, abuse or unauthorized reception; (4) enforce our Internet Service Agreement and Terms of Use, or Acceptable Use Policy or related standards; or (5) act in an emergency to protect your safety or that of another. We may also share or transfer your information along with your account as a part of any sale or transfer all or a portion of our business operations, merger or combination with another organization. In such a case, you will be notified of any changes in policy.

 

Outside PartiesHAC sometimes uses affiliates, vendors or partners in providing our services and may provide your information for such purposes. We require that outside parties maintain at least the same level of confidentiality that we maintain. In addition, any use by the vendor may not exceed that needed to provide its service. We do not share your information with other outside third parties without your consent. If you become a customer of a third party directly, you should review its privacy policy, as it may differ from ours.

 

Retention PolicyHAC may retain personal customer information in its regular business records. Our security measures for this information are discussed below.

 

● Internet Security.

 

Taking Proper Precautions – Maintaining the security of your personal computer is an important part of protecting your own privacy and of helping us protect our network and customers’ service. You must follow our Internet Service Agreement and Terms of Use and Acceptable Use Policy and use and update regularly your antivirus software, firewall, wireless network security and your operating system to prevent harm and potential theft of data due to unauthorized access by others and viruses. You should regularly back up your computer to preserve your files, including email or other messages you want to keep. Persons with questionable intent may use the Internet or email to pose as someone you trust or do business with. You should always be sure whom you are dealing with before clicking on an Internet link or giving personal information. To avoid all these and other forms of attacks, we encourage you to visit the Federal Trade Commission ("FTC") at http://www.ftc.gov for regular updates and tips on protecting yourself. While we take reasonable steps to protect your services, we highly recommend that you regularly change your login password, using hard-to-guess combinations of numbers and letters of at least eight characters in length. Once communications enter the Internet, it is possible for them to be accessed by third parties over whom we have no control. Moreover, since we cannot control web sites or services operated by third parties, you should review their terms of service and privacy policy.

 

SpamHAC tries to block incoming and outgoing spam using a variety of methods, and we encourage your help by preventing unauthorized access to your computer. We suggest that you remain up-to-date on ways to avoid and combat spam. We may use email to send transactional, informational, or relationship messages related to your service. If you prefer, you may opt-out of other marketing messages we may send by notifying us in response to any you may receive.

 

Cookies – A third party ad server that places ads on our websites may use "cookies" to collect anonymous information about your visit to our website and to manage information concerning your preferences. A "cookie" is a computer code added to a file on your computer as a record of its visit. It does not collect or provide your name or any other personal information about you. It can, however, be read by the website that placed it to note information about your visit, such as your type of web browser, operating system and Internet Protocol ("IP") address. It can also be used to recognize you when you log in as a registered user or as a repeat visitor returning to our website. This allows us to tailor our site by remembering you and any options you select. You can control what cookies are accepted by your computer through the settings on your web browser or by deleting them from your files. Doing so, however, may limit the personalization available to you.

 

Third-Party Cookies and Web Beacons – These forms of computer code are sometimes placed by advertisers or others with connection to a webpage and may be read by the ad’s provider. They may use a form of code called a "web beacon" or "clear GIF." These are usually contained in a transparent image on a page or in an image on an email message and serve as a way to gather information about your visit, such as your IP Address and information or statistics about your visit. As with cookies, you can use your browser settings to control web beacons. We may share non-personal information obtained from cookies and web beacons with vendors, advertisers and others.

 

● Law Enforcement and Legal Requests.

 

Information Disclosure – We cooperate as required by law, by providing only the information the law requires. The laws concerning your privacy and government access change from time to time and you may affect how we are required to respond. Under current law, many subpoenas require that we not disclose or notify you of the request. Due to this fact, we do not assume any duty to notify you of receipt of any legal requests.

 

Internet Information – Your account records and information concerning your Internet access may be subpoenaed by the government or by others through the courts. The law permits us to disclose to law enforcement, voluntarily and without prior notice, customer information, including the contents of communications, if we reasonably believe that an emergency involving immediate danger of death or serious physical injury requires such disclosure without delay.

● California Online Privacy Protection Act Notice.

 

(1) Home Acceptance Corporation does not track online users, and therefore does not use "do not track" signals.

(2) Home Acceptance Corporation does not authorize the collection of online users’ information for third party use through advertising technologies without separate online user’s consent.

 

To learn more about DNT and Home Acceptance Corporation’s DNT practices, please read on:

 

On September 27, 2013, California Governor Jerry Brown signed into law A.B. 370, amending the California Online Privacy Protection Act (CalOPPA) to require website operators like Home Acceptance Corporation to disclose: (1)how Home Acceptance Corporation responds to "Do Not Track Signals"(DNT); and (2)whether third parties collect personally identifiable information (PII) about users when they visit the Home Acceptance Corporation website.

 

Do Not Track:

 

What is DNT? DNT is the concept that has been promoted by regulatory authorities, in particular the U.S. Federal Trade Commission (FTC), for the Internet industry to develop and implement a mechanism for allowing Internet users to control the tracking of their online activities across websites.

 

What is a DNT signal? Currently, various browsers - including Internet Explorer, Firefox, and Safari - offer a DNT option that relies on a technology known as a DNT header that sends a signal to websites' visited by the browser user about the user's DNT preference. You can usually access your browser's DNT option in your browser's preferences.

 

Is there a DNT technology standard? The World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) has been working with industry groups, Internet browsers, technology companies, and regulators to develop a DNT technology standard. While some progress has been made on this issue, progress has been slow, and to date no standard has been adopted. Without an industry standard for DNT, users cannot know how any given company abides by a DNT signal they receive from browser headers. LinkedIn is committed to remaining apprised of the W3C efforts to develop a DNT standard.

 

How does Home Acceptance Corporation respond to the signal? Home Acceptance Corporation takes privacy and security very seriously, and strives to put our customers first in all aspects of our business. With regard to DNT, Home Acceptance Corporation currently does not respond to DNT signals in browsers because it doesn't track individual online users across the web.

 

Does Home Acceptance Corporation permit third parties to collect personally identifiable information about an individual consumer's online activities over time and across different Web sites when a consumer uses the Home Acceptance Corporation's site?  Home Acceptance Corporation does not authorize the collection of PII from its online users through advertising technologies deployed in ads that may appear on Home Acceptance Corporation’s site without separate consent.

We reserve the right to limit eligibility to certain types of accounts and to change such eligibility from time to time.

"Business Day" refers to Monday through Friday, excluding federal holidays. "Business Day" also excludes Good Friday.

"Current Day" refers to payment for an account that is scheduled with a present day Send On date; or the next Business Day if scheduled after the Cutoff Time;

(i) The Cutoff Time for payments to an Account will be reflected on the screen at the time your payment is scheduled.

All Cutoff Times referenced in this Agreement reflect the times displayed on our internal system clocks and may not necessarily be synchronized with the internal clock displayed on your computer. For this reason, we suggest that you transmit any Instructions to us sufficiently in advance of such Cutoff Times to eliminate the possibility of missing the cutoff. Instructions entered after the Cutoff Time with a Send On date that is the next Business Day may start to process immediately and may be Funded prior to the requested Send On date.

D. Service Fees. Unless otherwise noted in your Account agreement, we do not charge a monthly service fee for Payments. If we process a payment in accordance with your Instructions that is returned unpaid by your external account or is denied by your external account, we may assess a fee or charge interest for any such payment failure in accordance with the terms of your Account Agreement. We are not responsible for any payment request if there isn't enough money in the designated Pay From or From account.

E. Repeating Payments. Repeating payments that are for the same fixed amount each month will be sent on the same calendar day of each month, or on the prior Business Day if the regular Send On date or Transfer date falls on a non-Business Day. Repeating payments will be deducted from your Pay From account or From Account, on the Send On date, as applicable. In order to authorize a Repeating payment, you agree to have means to print a copy of your authorization for your records.

If there are insufficient available funds to cover a Current Day payment, we will not retry the payment and it will be immediately rejected. In the alternative, if sufficient available credit or funds are not in your external account on the Send On date or Payment date, we will automatically try to debit your account up to two (2) more times on each of the two (2) succeeding Business Days. After the final attempt, the payment request will be Cancelled. You agree that we may, at our option, follow your Instructions to take payments, even though a charge to or a debit from your Pay From account may cause you to exceed your credit limit, or bring about or increase an overdraft.

E. Payments to HAC Accounts. Only Business Days may be chosen as Payment dates for HAC Accounts and Instructions must be received by us by the Cutoff Time to receive credit on that same Business Day; Instructions received on any non-Business Day or after the Cutoff Time on any Business Day will be processed on the next Business Day. Payments to HAC Accounts made before the Cutoff Time on any Business Day will be applied with the date the payment is submitted; payments made after the Cutoff time will be applied with the next Business Day's date. Updates to the outstanding balances of the HAC Account will be made by the Business Day following the Payment date.

F. Duplicate Payments. If you submit a duplicate Account Payment request, an error message may be displayed on our website and such duplicate payments may not be permitted. WE WILL NOT BE RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY PAYEE'S REFUSAL TO RETURN ANY DUPLICATE PAYMENTS MADE AS A RESULT OF SOFTWARE CHANGES THAT YOU DIRECT.

G. Your Liability for Unauthorized Payments. If you permit other persons to use the Service or your Password, you are responsible for any transactions they authorize from your external accounts. IF YOU BELIEVE THAT YOUR PASSWORD HAS BEEN LOST OR STOLEN OR THAT SOMEONE HAS MADE PAYMENTS FROM YOUR EXTERNAL ACCOUNT WITHOUT YOUR PERMISSION, NOTIFY US AT ONCE, BY CALLING 1-800-413-4422 OR WRITING US AT HAC CUSTOMER SERVICE, 1061 N. KRAEMER PLACE, SUITE G, ANAHEIM, CA 92806.

H. Our Liability for Failure to Complete Payments. If we do not complete a payment request to your Account in the correct amount or according to our agreement with you, we will be liable for those damages as the law imposes in such cases. However, there are some exceptions. We will not be liable, for example: (i) If, through no fault of ours, your external account does not contain sufficient funds to take the payment or payment would exceed any credit line or any overdraft for such external account; (ii) Your operating system or software was not functioning properly at the time you attempted to initiate such transfer or payment and it was evident to you at the time you began the payment; (iii) Circumstances beyond our control, such as fires, floods, acts of God, power outages and the like; (iv) The third party financial institution holding your external account, mishandles or delays processing Payments request; and, (v) If you have not provided us with complete and correct payment information, including without limitation the financial institution name, address, account number or payment amount.

The list of examples set out in this paragraph is meant to illustrate circumstances under which we would not be liable for failing to take a payment and is not intended to list all of the circumstances where we would not be liable.

I. Errors and Questions about Payments and Transfers. In case of errors or questions about your electronic payments to your Account(s) you should telephone or write us as soon as you can, at the address or phone number set forth in the “Contact Us” page of the Service if you think that your statement is wrong or you need more information about a payment listed on the statement. We must hear from you no later than sixty (60) days after we sent you the FIRST statement on which the problem or error appeared. Tell us your name and the Account number(s) of the Account(s) involved. Describe the error or payment you are uncertain about, and explain as clearly as you can why you believe it is an error or why you need more information. Tell us the dollar amount of the suspected error. If you tell us in person or by telephone, we may require that you send us your complaint or question in writing within ten (10) Business Days.

We will give you the results of our investigation within 10 Business Days (or 20 Business Days if your Account was opened less than 30 days prior to the date of the suspected error) after we hear from you. If we have made an error, we will correct it promptly. If we need more time, however, we may take up to 45 days (or 90 days if your Account was opened less than 30 days prior to the date of the suspected error) to investigate your complaint or question. If we decide to do this, we will credit the account in question within 10 Business Days (or 20 Business Days if your Account was opened less than 30 days prior to the date of the suspected error) for the amount you think is in error. Such crediting is referred to as a provisional credit. If we ask you to put your complaint or question in writing and we do not receive it within 10 Business Days, we may not provisionally credit the Account(s) that was the subject of your complaint. We will tell you the results within three business days after completing our investigation. If we find there was no error, we will send you a written explanation within three (3) Business Days after we finish our investigation. You may ask for copies of the documents that we used in our investigation. If we provisionally credit your Account, we may take back the amount of any credit if we find that an error did not occur.

 

4. Payment Terms. You agree to be responsible for any and all charges, damages and costs that you or anyone using your HAC Account incurs while using the Service.
