ELECTRONIC DISCLOSURE AND CONSENT AGREEMENT

As of 07.26.2019

General

This Surety Bank Electronic Disclosure and Consent Agreement (“Electronic Consent Agreement”), applies to all communications for products and services offered by Surety Bank and e-Statements, our electronic statement service (“e-Statements”). You must agree to this Electronic Consent Agreement prior to accepting the Surety Bank Online Banking Services Agreement, which you must accept before you can use Surety Bank Online Banking Services and prior to accepting the Statement Service Agreement and Disclosure, which you must accept before you can enroll in our e-Statements services.

Definitions

The terms “we,” “us” and “Bank” refer to Surety Bank or any affiliate, agent, independent contractor or designee that we may, at our sole discretion, involve in the provision of Surety Bank services.

The terms “you” and “your” refer to the user of Surety Bank Online Services, whether singular or plural, who: (1) is an individual or entity that is the owner of an account or a party-in-interest of an account at the Bank or (2) is an individual authorized by an account owner or a party-in-interest to view account information or effect transactions in an account.

The term “Communication” means any customer agreements or amendments to those agreements, disclosures, notices, responses, transaction history, privacy policies and all other information related to your accounts at the Bank, including but not limited to Surety Bank Online Services and e-Statements. Communications are not limited to information that we are required by law to provide to you in writing.

Scope of Communications to be Provided in Electronic Form

When you use a Surety Bank Online Service, you agree that we may provide you with any Communications in electronic form and that we may discontinue sending paper Communications to you, unless you withdraw your consent as described in this Electronic Consent Agreement. Your consent to receive electronic Communications and transactions includes, but is not limited to, the following:

 All legal and regulatory disclosures and Communications associated with your accounts at the Bank including products or services available through Surety Bank Online Services and e-Statements;

 Notices or disclosures about a change in the terms of this Consent Agreement; and

 Our responses to your requests related to your Accounts, including Surety Bank Online Services and e-Statements.

 Privacy policies and notices

Your consent to receive Communications electronically does not enroll you in the program to receive your official bank statements electronically (e-Statements). You must enroll for our e-Statement services separately if you want to receive your statements electronically instead of in paper format sent through the U.S. mail. You can enroll in our e-Statement services by visiting the “Accounts” tab in your Surety Bank Online profile and selecting “Statements”.

Method of Providing Communications to You in Electronic Form

All Communications that we provide to you in electronic form will be provided either (1) via e-mail; (2) by access to a website that we will designate in an e-mail notice we send to you at the time the information is available; or (3) by access to a website that we will generally designate in advance.

How to Withdraw Consent

You may withdraw your consent to receive Communications in electronic form by sending written notification to us at Surety Bank, 990 N. Woodland Blvd.  DeLand, FL 32720 Attention: Operations. Withdrawal of your consent to receive electronic Communications will be effective only after we have a reasonable period of time to process your request. At our option, we may treat your provision of an invalid e-mail address or the subsequent malfunction of a previously valid e-mail address as a withdrawal of your consent to receive electronic Communications. Withdrawal of your consent to receive Communications electronically will terminate your use of Surety Bank Online Services.

How to Update Your Records

It is your responsibility to provide us with an accurate and complete e-mail address, contact and other information related to this Electronic Consent Agreement and your Accounts and to maintain and update promptly any changes in this information.
