Method of Providing Communications to You in Electronic Form

All Communications that we provide to you in electronic form will be provided by one or more of the following:
  • An alert sent to your email.
  • Access to a web site that we will designate in an email notice we send to you at the time the information is available.
  • To the extent permissible by law, by access to a web site that we will generally designate in advance for such purpose.
  • Requesting you download a PDF file containing the Communication.
Once enrolled to receive Paperless Documents, you will be able to view your current documents, disclosures, agreements, and notices. You will have access up to 18 months of documents up to a maximum of two hundred (200) total documents. You may find it advisable to print or download these documents for permanent retention.

We will not send you a paper copy of this or any other disclosure you are agreeing to receive electronically, but you may request it. You can obtain a paper copy of an electronic communication by printing it yourself or by requesting that we mail you a paper copy, provided that such request is made within a reasonable time after we first provided the electronic communication to you. To request a paper copy, please see the contact information provided within this document. We may charge you a reasonable service charge, which we have provided you in our Common Features Fee Schedule, for the delivery of paper copies of any communication provided to you electronically pursuant to this authorization. Requesting a paper copy of previous Account Documentation does not constitute a withdrawal of consent to receive them electronically. We reserve the right, but assume no obligation, to provide a paper (instead of electronic) copy of any communication that you have authorized us to provide.

How to Withdraw Consent

If you originally consented to receive electronic statements, disclosures, agreements, notices, and tax reporting forms (when available), but later decide to withdraw your consent, you can do so within digital banking by selecting “Settings”, found in the upper right hand corner under your name, scrolling down to the “Paperless Statements” section and selecting “Unenroll”. You may also contact the Bank by a method provided at the end of this document. We will not impose any fee to process the withdrawal of your consent to receive electronic communications. The withdrawal will become effective only after we have a reasonable time period to process your request.
