Electronic Records. To facilitate electronic commerce, to reduce the expense of records storage, and to obtain the benefits of faster access to records, you acknowledge and agree that we may in our discretion store all records electronically; and that we will not retain and have no obligation to retain any original documents for any period of time. This applies to all documentation including but not limited to checks, transaction records, notes, mortgages, deeds of trust and other loan and/or security documentation. You further acknowledge and understand that we will routinely destroy all original documentation. We may store records electronically via imaging, scanning, filming or other technology used in the financial services industry for the storage of documentation via internal processes or third-party processors that we approve for these services. You agree that such storage shall be secure, and further agree that such records shall for all purposes be recognized and admissible in evidence or otherwise to prove the agreements, rights and obligations of the parties pursuant to any such records.
“E-Mail” and Facsimile Communications. You acknowledge and agree that the Internet is considered inherently insecure. Therefore, you agree that we have no liability to you whatsoever for any loss, claim or damages arising or in any way related to our response(s) to any e-mail or other electronic communication, which we in good faith believe you have submitted to us. We have no duty to investigate the validity or to verify any e-mail or other electronic communication; and may respond to an e-mail at either the address provided with the communication, the e-mail address in your Membership Application and Signature Card, or any other application or written communication actually received by us. Any account owner, co-borrower, or authorized user may change the e-mail address for statements or other information from us at any time.
Although having no obligation to do so, we reserve the right to require authentication of e-mails or electronic communications. The decision to require authentication is in the sole discretion of the Credit Union. We will have no obligation, liability or responsibility to you or any other person or company if we do not act upon or follow any instruction to us if a communication cannot be authenticated to our satisfaction. Further, the Credit Union may not immediately receive e-mail communications that you send. Also, we will not take action based on e-mail requests until we actually receive your message and have a reasonable opportunity to act. We reserve the right to require any notices from you be submitted to us in writing, and we may refuse to send certain information through unsecured e-mail communications. If you need to contact the Credit Union immediately regarding an unauthorized transaction, stop payment request, or otherwise, you may call the Credit Union at 229-247-9930.
You expressly consent and agree to us, our agents or any parties we authorize sending and your receiving any communications hereunder by facsimile or other electronic methods including any offers for Credit Union, affiliate or third party services and/or products.
