   Consumer Service Portal(CSP) Services: Users using this service will receive the Pay Anyone Service and may have their bills presented online at a web site operated by Metavante for the Client. Metavante will receive User billing information using either electronic or paper-based processes. Either User or the Customer must provide Metavante with information and authorization necessary for Metavante to receive the User bill for processing. User is responsible for the accuracy of account and other information required for accessing User bills.


Without limiting the foregoing, Metavante shall provide the following:


 1. Integration Services
