(1) Unless otherwise instructed, a collecting bank in a good faith effort to secure payment of a specific item drawn on a payor other than a bank, and with or without the approval of any person involved, may waive, modify or extend time limits imposed or permitted by the Uniform Commercial Code for a period not exceeding two additional banking days without discharge of drawers or indorsers or liability to its transferor or a prior party.

(2) Delay by a collecting bank or payor bank beyond time limits prescribed or permitted by the Uniform Commercial Code or by instructions is excused if:
