ACCESS TO AND FROM WEBSITE All information submitted to JAA via this website shall be and remain the property of JAA & JNBS. JAA shall be free to use, for any legal purpose, any ideas, concepts, know-how or techniques contained in information any user of this Website provides. You agree that you will not introduce any virus or any disruptive or other harmful program or anything that will impair the service offered or any other service on the internet or generally.

SERVICE RESPONSIBILITY You are solely responsible for paying for services on or before the Due Date where applicable. Due to circumstances beyond the control of the Service, particularly delays in handling and posting payments by the various financial institutions, there may be delays in the crediting of some transactions to your JAA membership and/or service. The Service shall not be responsible for any such delay which is outside of its control.

PAYMENT AUTHORIZATION AND PAYMENT REMITTANCE By providing the Service with the relevant account and financial information you thereby authorize the Service to follow the Payment Instructions that it receives through the payment system. In order to process payments more efficiently and effectively, the Service may edit or alter payment data or data formats.
When the Service receives a Payment Instruction from you, you thereby authorize the Service to charge your credit card and remit funds on your behalf so that, subject to the terms and conditions herein contained, your account shall be credited within the Scheduled Payment Period. You also authorize the Service to credit your credit card for payments returned to you by JAA.

JAA agrees not to initiate or make any payments under your credit card on its own and without your authorization. JAA will provide you with the relevant billing information.
The Service will use its best efforts to make all your payments properly. However, the Service shall incur no liability whatsoever for any loss, damage, expense or cost of any kind, and any Service guarantee shall be void and of no effect if the Service is unable to complete any payment initiated by you because of the existence of any one or more of the following circumstances:

  1. Through no fault of the Service, your credit card does not contain sufficient funds to complete the transaction or the transaction would exceed the credit limit on your credit card;
  2. The payment processing center is not working properly and you know or have been advised by the Service about the malfunction before you execute the transaction;
  3. You have not provided the Service with the correct name, address, phone number, or JAA account information, or if any other information provided by you is incorrect; and/or,
  4. Circumstances beyond the control of the Service (such as, but not limited to, fire, flood, break or surge in electricity supply or interference from an outside force) prevent the proper execution of the transaction.

Provided that none of the foregoing exceptions are applicable, if the Service causes an incorrect amount of funds to be removed from your credit card or causes funds from your credit card to be deducted in a manner which does not comply with your Payment Instruction, the Service shall be responsible for returning the improperly transferred funds to your credit card, and for correcting any previously misdirected transactions, and, if applicable, for absorbing any late payment related charges, fees or penalties. This shall be the extent of the liability of the Service hereunder.

PAYMENT METHODS The Service reserves the right to select the method in which to remit funds on your behalf to your JAA membership and/or service. All price is quoted in Jamaican Dollars.

PAYMENT CANCELLATION Once the Service has begun processing a payment, it cannot be cancelled or edited.

PROHIBITED PAYMENTS Payments to Payees other than JAA is not possible through the Service.

PASSWORD AND SECURITY You agree not to give or make available your password (where applicable) to any unauthorized individuals. You are responsible for all payments you authorize using the Service. If you permit other persons to use the Service with your credit card on your behalf, you are wholly responsible for any transactions that they authorize. If you believe that your password has been lost or stolen or that someone may attempt to use the Service with your credit card without your consent, you must notify the Service at once by calling 1-888-2255-522 during customer service hours (9:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. each Business Day).

YOUR LIABILITY FOR CREDIT CARD TRANSACTIONS Subject to the Service Responsibility set out above, JAA is not responsible for transactions done using your credit card since JAA offers the Service using a secure server and therefore has no access to the particulars of your credit card and no control over the use of your card. For the avoidance of doubt, JAA shall not be liable to you in respect of any transaction done using your credit card or credit card account number whether or not such transaction was done by a third party without your knowledge or consent.
