You may obtain a paper copy of an electronic Communication by printing it from your computer or mobile device. If you request a paper copy of a statement or other Communication, We may, on occasion, comply with such request, but in most cases We will charge a fee for such paper copy. In no event will We charge you for a paper copy of IRS forms that We send to you. The request for a paper copy of any Communication will not by itself constitute a withdrawal of consent for future electronic deliveries. Except as noted herein or otherwise at our discretion, Communications will not be furnished on paper.
You may without charge withdraw consent to receive Communications electronically by contacting Us at 877-751-6884 or at a different phone number that We may, from time to time, communicate to you. If you withdraw your consent to receive Communications electronically, we will terminate the relationship and close your deposit account(s), and return the current balance and any accrued interest to you via external linked account or check.
Your withdrawal of consent will take effect five (5) days after We receive such request. A withdrawal of consent will not apply to Communications provided electronically before the date on which the withdrawal of consent takes effect. In addition, your withdrawal does not apply to any consent you provide to Us to send you electronic communications relating to credit card account(s) or loan(s) you may have with Us.
Tax documents will be furnished to you on paper and available to you electronically. If you provide consent to receive Communications electronically, We will typically only terminate electronic delivery of tax documents under extraordinary circumstances, however, We reserve the right to provide some or all Communications to you at any time in paper form at your designated U.S. Postal address. In no event will We charge you for a paper copy of a tax document.
Your consent to receive Communications electronically applies to tax documents furnished to you every year after the consent takes effect until it is withdrawn by you. If you call Us to withdraw your consent to receive Communications electronically in accordance with the terms of the Withdraw Consent section above, We will confirm the withdrawal of consent of electronic delivery of tax documents and the date on which it takes effect during the phone call.. As stated in the Withdraw Consent section above, if you withdraw your consent, We will terminate the relationship and close your deposit account(s).
Tax documents that are provided electronically will remain available electronically for at least one year after the date they are originally made available to you electronically.
Providing an Electronic Signature
Your consent also permits Us to obtain your electronic signature if you choose to sign certain Communications or any other document or contract electronically. If you do sign electronically, your electronic signature will bind you to the terms and conditions to the same extent as if you provided your signature on paper with an ink signature.
