User also authorizes Headcount to initiate credit Entries to the Bank Account in the event that Headcount is required to return Unpaid Funds to User. These authorizations are to remain in full force and effect until Headcount has received written notice from User of termination of any such authorizations in such time and such manner as to afford Headcount and the Bank a reasonable opportunity to act upon such notice. Headcount is not responsible for determining whether the bank accounts of any payors or payees have deposit or withdrawal restrictions.

User acknowledges that the origination of Automated Clearing House (“ACH”) transactions to the Payroll Account (as defined below) and the transmission of funds via ACH transactions to the payee’s account must comply with applicable laws, rules, and regulations, including the NACHA Rules and Article 4A of the Uniform Commercial Code, as adopted in California and as may be amended from time to time (as amended, the “UCC”).

User’s obligation to have sufficient funds in the Bank Account to cover the Amounts Due matures at the time Headcount originates the applicable Entries for the Amounts Due and is unaffected by termination of the Payroll Service. Headcount may set off any amounts User owes to it against any amounts it owes to User in order for Headcount to obtain payment of User’s obligations as set forth in the Payroll Agreement.

If User does not have sufficient funds in the Bank Account to pay the Amounts Due at the time required, or if User refuses to pay the Amounts Due, then Headcount will not be able to pay out the Amounts Due to the applicable parties and will not be liable for any consequences or Claims directly or indirectly arising from such failure to pay, and Headcount may (i) debit the Bank Account or any other account owned in whole or in part by User to pay disbursements, fees or charges, payroll taxes, or other amounts due; (ii) refuse to pay any unremitted payroll taxes to the applicable tax agencies, in which case the payroll tax liability will become User’s sole responsibility; (iii) refuse to perform further Services; and/or (iv) immediately terminate the Payroll Agreement.

All Headcount users are subject to the Headcount Payroll Service terms (https://www.useheadcount.com/payroll-terms).

International Data Transfers

We are a global business. Personal Data may be stored and processed in any country where we have operations or where we engage service providers. We may transfer Personal Data that we maintain about you to recipients in countries other than the country in which the Personal Data was originally collected, including to the United States. Those countries may have data protection rules that are different from those of your country. However, we will take measures to ensure that any such transfers comply with applicable data protection laws and that your Personal Data remains protected to the standards described in this Privacy Policy. In certain circumstances, courts, law enforcement agencies, regulatory agencies or security authorities in those other countries may be entitled to access your Personal Data.

If you are located in the European Economic Area (“EEA”), the UK or Switzerland, we comply with applicable laws to provide an adequate level of data protection for the transfer of your Personal Data to the US.

Where applicable law requires us to ensure that an international data transfer is governed by a data transfer mechanism, we use one or more of the following mechanisms: EU Standard Contractual Clauses with a data recipient outside the EEA or the UK, verification that the recipient has implemented Binding Corporate Rules, or verification that the recipient adheres to the EU-US and Swiss-US Privacy Shield Framework.

The Services are not directed to individuals under the age of eighteen (18), and we request that they not provide Personal Data through the Services.
