You hereby represent and warrant that any information you have provided to PEC through the Website is true and accurate to the best of your knowledge; and that you have read and accept the terms of our Online Privacy Statement.

The Website is for personal use only. The following activities are expressly prohibited:

(i) collecting a user’s username or email address from the Website by electronic or other means without the user’s consent; (ii) sending unsolicited email or other communications using any information obtained in connection with the Website, (iii) any use of the Website which, in our sole judgment, jeopardizes the reliability, speed, or operation of the Website or any related computer systems, and (iv) any use of the Website for an illegal or improper purpose.

Unless otherwise noted, all text, images, graphics, photographs, video clips, designs, icons, sounds, information, data, and other materials displayed, used, or incorporated by PEC on the Website (“PEC Content”) are copyrights, trademarks, service marks, trade secrets, or other intellectual property or proprietary content owned or licensed by PEC.

III. Email and Electronic Text Communications, Generally

If you select any optional services from PEC that include any email or electronic text notifications or other communications, it is your responsibility to provide PEC with a valid email address and/or a valid number assigned to your mobile phone or other device (“Mobile Device”), and you understand and agree that PEC will use such email address and/or Mobile Device number for delivery of electronic notifications and other communications. It is also your responsibility to update such email address and/or Mobile Device number, to ensure proper delivery of electronic communications to you. Failure to do so promptly could result in the interruption of such communications and could adversely affect your PEC utility account (“Utility Account”) and PEC’s ability to provide services to you. Your email address and/or Mobile Device number can be changed on the “My Profile” page if you have a Website Account, or by using any of the methods set forth in the “How to Contact Us” section below.

IV. Electronic Records Disclosure and Agreement

Please read this Electronic Records Disclosure and Agreement (“E-Records Disclosure”) carefully. You may want to keep a copy for your records.

With your consent, PEC will provide you with legal disclosures, agreements, instructions, communications and online account and billing statements related to your PEC account(s) electronically rather than delivering such items via postal mail or in person.

In order to activate and receive services that involve the delivery of electronic notifications and disclosures, you must agree to this E-Records Disclosure and consent to the electronic delivery of all such notifications and disclosures via email. Notably, if you do not consent to electronic delivery of notifications and disclosures related to your PEC account(s), you may not be able to activate or receive optional services that require such electronic delivery.

Paper Copy of Disclosures, Agreements and Instructions. If you do not want to receive legal disclosures, agreements, instructions, communications and online account and billing statements related to your PEC account(s) electronically, you should exit the “Paperless Bills” or “Update my printed bill settings” area of your Website Account without choosing to turn off your paper bills.

Withdrawal of Consent for Electronic Delivery. You may withdraw your consent for electronic delivery of legal disclosures, agreements, instructions, communications and online account and billing statements, but doing so will not affect the legal effectiveness, validity or enforceability of electronic records that were made available to you by PEC prior to the implementation of your withdrawal of consent for electronic delivery. You may withdraw your consent to electronic delivery at any time by changing your printed bill settings in your Website Account, or by using any of the methods set forth in the “How to Contact Us” section below.

Updating Your Contact Information. You can provide an updated email address or other updated electronic contact information to PEC by changing information in the “My Profile” page if you have a Website Account, or by using any of the methods set forth in the “How to Contact Us” section below.

System Requirements to Access Electronic Information. To receive electronic delivery of legal disclosures, agreements, instructions, communications and online account and billing statements related to your PEC account(s), you must first obtain access to the Internet with a current web browser and appropriate and compatible hardware and software. PEC requires that you use a web browser that supports adequate security measures including SSL encryption technology, and any additional security measures that PEC may implement and require. You understand and acknowledge that obtaining and maintaining the necessary Internet access is your responsibility, and you are solely responsible for all Internet Service Provider (“ISP”) fees and costs. You also understand and acknowledge that PEC shall not be responsible for any computer virus or other technology issues associated with your use of the Internet, including your access to and use of your PEC account via the Internet.

System Requirements to Retain the Information. To retain a copy of electronically delivered legal disclosures, agreements, instructions, communications and online account and billing statements related to your PEC account, your system must have the ability to either download (e.g., to a hard disk drive, diskette, CD-ROM, flash drive or other similar media) or print portable document format (“PDF”) files. You must have a functioning printer that is connected to your personal computer or other access device and that is able to print any electronically delivered legal disclosures, agreements, instructions, communications and online account and billing statements on plain white 8½ x 11 inch paper.

Agreements and Acknowledgements. As a condition to enrollment in the Paperless Billing services, you acknowledge that you have read, understood and agree to all of the provisions of this E-Records Disclosure. Furthermore, you represent that the Internet access device(s) and systems that have been used to review this E-Records Disclosure and that will be used in the future to receive electronically delivered legal disclosures, agreements, instructions, communications and online account and billing statements concerning your PEC account meet the system requirements to access information and to retain information as set forth in the preceding two sections of this E-Records Disclosure.

V. Optional Paperless Billing

If you select the optional Paperless Billing service, you understand that PEC will stop mailing paper account and billing statements concerning your Utility Account to your physical, postal address, and will instead send email notifications that your monthly account and billing statement is available to download from the Website. Late notices may be sent by email, postal mail, or both. Disconnection notices will always be sent by postal mail, although an email may also be sent.

In addition to these Terms, optional Paperless Billing services are governed by the E-Records Disclosure, which includes information concerning the methods by which you can withdraw your consent to electronic delivery of notifications and other communications related to your Utility Account. PEC is not responsible for any technical or other difficulties or errors that may arise in connection with the service, or that may prevent notifications from being sent or received.

VI. Optional Text Messaging

If you select optional text messaging services, you request that PEC send text message alerts to your Mobile Device concerning your Utility Account, including, for example, notifications when your billing statement is available for download from the Website (if you have signed up for Paperless Billing). By enrolling in the optional text messaging services, you are providing your express consent for PEC to send text messages to your Mobile Device concerning your Utility Account. In addition, you also consent to receive occasional text messages sent to your Mobile Device concerning other products or services offered by PEC. You can opt-out of the text messaging service on the “Notifications” page of your Website Account, or by using any of the methods set forth in the “How to Contact Us” section below.

Although the optional text messaging services are currently offered free of charge by PEC, you understand that you are responsible for meeting all Mobile Device system requirements and for all associated costs and expenses, including, without limitation, all fees you may incur for data transfers and as a result of receiving text messages from PEC on your Mobile Device.

The optional Text Messaging service is offered as a courtesy only. PEC is not responsible for any technical or other difficulties or errors that may arise in connection with the service, or that may prevent messages from being sent or received.

VII. Online Transactions

PEC provides several different online transactions, including bill payment options, that are available through the Website. You are responsible for reviewing all of the disclosures associated with each transaction, and for activating and deactivating any automatic payment plans in accordance with the disclosures and instructions associated with such payment plan.

BILL PAYMENT SERVICE:

  1. Payment Authorization. When we receive a payment instruction by way of your Website Account, you authorize us to debit your bank or credit card account for the amount indicated and apply those funds to your PEC Account(s) balance.
  2. Payment Remittance. We will use our best efforts to make all your payments properly. However, we shall incur no liability if we are unable to complete any payments initiated by you because of the existence of any one or more of the following circumstances:
    1. If, through no fault of ours, your account does not contain sufficient funds to complete the transaction or the transaction would exceed the credit limit of your credit card account;
    2. The Pay Now Service is not working properly and you know or have been advised about the malfunction before you execute the transaction;
    3. You have not provided us with the correct bank account or credit card information, or with adequate bank account or credit card information necessary to complete the transaction; and/or,
    4. Circumstances beyond our control (such as, but not limited to, fire, flood, or interference from an outside force) prevent the proper execution of the bill pay transaction and we have taken reasonable precautions to avoid those circumstances.
  3. Payment Cancellation Requests. Once we have begun processing a payment it cannot be cancelled or edited.
  4. Pay Now Limits. There are transaction limits for payments made through the Pay Now Service. Individual credit card transactions may not exceed $100,000.00. Individual check payment transactions may not exceed $999,999,999.99.

You may cancel your access to your Website Account at any time by logging into your online account, clicking the “My Profile” tab and the “Manage My Registered Accounts” screen, and clicking the “Unsubscribe” button, or by using any of the methods set forth in the “How to Contact Us” section below. We may terminate or suspend your use of our online services (or any portion thereof) at any time for any reason. If we do so we will notify you; however, if we find it necessary to terminate or suspend your use of our online services (or any portion thereof) for security reasons, we suspect suspicious activity or because of your abuse of such services, we will not provide you with written notice in advance. Termination by either party will not affect your obligations under these Terms of Use, even if we allow a transaction to be completed after the termination of these Terms of Use.

VIII. Auto Pay

The following terms and conditions apply if you are enrolled in Auto Pay:

By enrolling in Auto Pay, you authorize Pedernales Electric Cooperative to, on a recurring basis, automatically charge the debit or credit card account specified, or to automatically debit the checking or savings account specified for payments due on your PEC account(s).

You understand that PEC will initiate transfers/charges pursuant to this authorization not to exceed the amount shown on your monthly PEC bill. PEC will initiate transfers or charges each month on the date your bill is due. The origination of ACH transactions to your checking or savings account must comply with the provisions of U.S. law.

PEC may discontinue processing of recurring charges if PEC is unable to secure funds from your debit or credit card or from your bank account for the payments you have authorized due to, but not limited to, insufficient or uncollected funds in the account or insufficient or inaccurate information provided by you. PEC may, if applicable, undertake collection action, including application of returned check fees to the extent permitted by law. All such fees may be collected electronically.

You also understand that this authorization to pay your PEC account(s) by recurring charges or debits is entirely optional and is not required to obtain or maintain your account with PEC.

IF FOR ANY REASON PEC IS UNABLE TO PROCESS A PAYMENT AND YOU PAY YOUR BILL AFTER IT IS DUE, YOUR PEC ACCOUNT MAY INCUR LATE FEES AND DISCONNECTION AS SET FORTH IN THE TARIFF AND BUSINESS RULES.

You are responsible for providing PEC with accurate payment account information if such information changes in the future. You understand that you may use any of the methods set forth in the “How to Contact Us” section below, or access your Website Account and click on “Billing & Payments” then select the “Auto Pay Accounts” screen to update or change your payment account information. You may use any of the methods specified in the preceding sentence to notify PEC you wish to cancel your Auto Pay agreement, provided such contact occurs at least thirty (30) days prior to the payment due date on which you want your Auto Pay agreement to no longer be in effect. PEC will not initiate further transfers or charges after you have cancelled and PEC has had a reasonable period of time to process your request. You also understand that you are not waiving your rights under the Electronic Fund Transfer Act to stop payments by directly contacting the financial institution where you have the checking or savings account you specified in your Auto Pay agreement, and that your exercise of such rights does not constitute a breach of this authorization.

IX. Payment Extension Requests

You may, if eligible, request a fourteen (14) day extension of your payment due date through your Website Account. To be eligible, you must have, within the preceding 12 months:

  1. Have had no request for payment extension granted;
  2. Have had no payment instruments returned for insufficient funds; and
  3. Have been assessed no more than one late fee.

If your payment, including all past- and current charges due, is not received by the extension due date indicated in your request, your payment extension will default and your power may be shut off.

X. Mobile Services

Your enrollment in our online services may include access to products and services through a mobile device (“Mobile Services”), such as compatible smart phones and tablets. Mobile Services may include without limitation, short message service (SMS) text messaging, mobile web transactions, and mobile initiated transactions by means of a downloadable application. By using our Mobile Services, you agree to the following terms and any additional terms and conditions applicable to specific Mobile Services, such as SMS text messaging, and the downloadable mobile application.

  1. You agree that we may send you information relative to Mobile Services through your wireless provider in order to deliver them to you and that your wireless provider is acting as your agent in this capacity. You represent that you are the owner, or authorized user of the mobile device you use to receive the Mobile Services, and that you are authorized to approve the applicable charges.
  2. You agree to provide a valid phone number, email address or other delivery location so that we may send you certain information about your applicable account or otherwise related to Mobile Services. Additionally, you agree to indemnify, defend and hold us harmless from and against any and all claims, losses, liability, cost and expenses (including reasonable attorneys’ fees) arising from your provision of a phone number, email address, or other delivery location that is not your own or your violation of applicable federal, state or local law, regulation or ordinance. Your obligation under the preceding sentence shall survive termination of the Terms of Use.
  3. You understand and agree certain services may not be encrypted and many include confidential information about you such as your account activity or status. Delivery and receipt of information, including instructions for payment, transfer and other electronic fund transactions, through the Mobile Services may be delayed or impacted by factor(s) pertaining to your Internet service provider(s), phone carriers, other parties, or because of other reasons outside of our control. We will not be liable for losses or damages arising from any disclosure of account information to third parties, non-delivery, delayed delivery, misdirected delivery or mishandling of, or inaccurate content in, information and instructions sent through the Mobile Services.
  4. Additionally, not all of the products, services or functionality described in these Terms of Use may be available through Mobile Services. Therefore, you may not be eligible to use all the products, services or functionality described when you access or try to access them using a mobile device. Functionality may also vary based on the mobile device you use. Information available via the Mobile Services, including balance due and payment information, may differ from the information that is available directly through the Website without the use of a mobile device may not be available via the Mobile Services, may be described using different terminology (including capitalized terms used in these Terms of Use or on our Website), or may be more current than the information available via the Mobile Services, including but not limited to account balance information. The method of entering instructions via the Mobile Services may also differ from the method of entering instructions directly through our Website without the use of a mobile device. Processing of payment instructions may take longer through the Mobile Services. We are not responsible for such differences, whether or not attributable to your use of the Mobile Services.
  5. Your wireless service provider’s standard rates apply to Internet (data) access and SMS usage. We do not charge for any content; however, downloadable content may incur additional charges from your wireless provider. Please contact your wireless provider for information about your data and messaging rate plans. Your wireless provider may impose data access, message and/or charge limitations that are outside of our control, for using Mobile Services on your account. All such charges are billed by and payable to your wireless provider. You are responsible for any charges and fees from your wireless provider. We are not responsible for any damages resulting from your failure to comply with any terms and conditions of your wireless provider.
  6. Certain Mobile Services (or portions thereof) may not be available outside of the United States. If you are using Mobile Services outside of the United States, you are responsible for having access to the appropriate wireless and/or telecommunications networks and are responsible for all associated fees and charges.
