8. Handling of Transmitted Items. You will not allow the transmission of an Image of an Item that has already been presented to us or to any bank by any other means. You will not allow transmission of an image of an Item that has already been transmitted through the Service. If an Image of an Item has been transmitted to us or to any other bank, you will not allow the Item to be subsequently presented by any other means.

10. Payment Processing.
a. Item Processing. At our sole discretion, we may process the Images you send to us electronically through other banks, or we may create Image Replacement Documents that will be processed through traditional check processing methods. If you send us Images that are incomplete, that fail to satisfy our image quality requirements, or otherwise do not allow us to meet the requirements of Check 21 or any image exchange agreement that would cover our further electronic transmission of Images that you send us,or we are otherwise unable to process Images that you send us, we may charge the Images back to your account. You agree to be bound by any clearinghouse agreements, operating circulars, and image exchange agreements to which we are a party.
b. Transmission of Items. The Images you send us are not considered received by us until you see a memo post acknowledging that we have accepted your deposit. However, this memo post confirmation does not mean that the transmission was complete or error free. As stated in Section 4 of this Agreement, we may refuse to process any Image you send to us for any reason or no reason. Likewise an image may be returned to Premier Bank upon submission into the payment stream for a variety of reasons including but not limited to (poor image quality, duplicate entry, fraud, forged items, etc)
