I am authorized to access the Account through Online Banking. By logging in with my User ID and Password, clicking the box that says that I have agreed to the terms of the eDocument Agreement and Disclosure the first time I access it, choosing the delivery method I would like, and clicking the Submit button, this constitutes my “electronic signature” for the purpose of this Consent and Authorization.

Any request made pursuant to this Consent and Authorization shall be considered authorized by me on my own behalf and on behalf of all of the other Account owners.
I understand that Electronic Documents furnished to me pursuant to this Consent and Authorization will remain available to me for a limited time. For example, certain Electronic Documents relating to my deposit accounts may not be available within the Online Banking site for more than two years after they are first posted to Online Banking site. If I want a permanent copy of an Electronic Document, I will print a copy of it or will save it to my own computer file system.My ongoing consent to receive subsequent paper documents is voluntary and may be withdrawn at any time by notifying the Bank or by selecting the “Electronic Delivery Only” delivery method option.

I understand that it may take one complete statement cycle for this to occur.
System Requirements: In order to receive and retain the Electronic Documents, I confirm that I have a valid email address and a computer equipped as described below. If my email address changes, I will promptly contact the Bank to update my contact information, and I understand that until I do so, electronic communications sent to my former email address will remain effective. Bank is not liable for any third-party incurred fees, other legal liability, or any other issues or liabilities arising from eStatements or notifications sent to an invalid or inactive email address that I have provided.
A broadband connection is required to connect to the Bank’s Online Banking System where the documents are posted and to receive email.
