Disclosure Statement Regarding the Use of Electronic Signature
The Bank and the Consenting Party agree to the following:
- Each Consenting Party authorizes the Bank to use an electronic signature of the Consenting Party for all documents, agreements, attachments and addendums including, without limitation, all deposit related documents such as account agreements, security agreements and acknowledgements (the Documents) in any way connected to the transaction being entered into between the Consenting Party and the Bank (the Transaction). This consent is specifically to permit electronic signature (as of the nature then in use by the Bank) in lieu of hand-written signatures on any one or more of the Documents.
- The Bank consents to accept such signatures as true, correct and binding signatures of the Consenting Party and to enter into the Transaction in reliance thereon.
- Each Consenting Party agrees that its electronic signature will be enforceable as and to the full extent of a hand-written signature as an original for enforcement/enforceability of the Documents containing the electronic signature(s), whether in court (state or federal), arbitration or otherwise. The Consenting Party will not raise any defenses or invoke regulatory or statutory claim attempting to invalidate the enforceability of the Documents to which the electronic signature is affixed.
NOTICES: Any notice from the Bank to the Consenting Party shall be deemed given when mailed, postage paid, and addressed to any Consenting Party at the last address furnished by the Consenting Party to the Bank. Any notice from the Consenting Party to the Bank shall be deemed given when mailed, postage paid, and addressed to the Bank at its principal place of business.

All prior subsequent oral agreements and/or discussions related to this agreement are superseded by this Agreement. Further, in the event of any conflict between the terms and provisions contained in this Agreement and any other document(s) relating to use of electronic signatures, the terms and provisions of this Agreement shall control.
BINDING EFFECT: The obligations hereof shall bind the heirs, executors, administrators, successors and assigns of each Consenting Party, and all rights, benefits and privileges herby conferred on the Bank shall be and hereby are extended to and conferred upon and may be enforced by its successors and assigns. Further, if any Consenting Party is a partnership, the obligations hereof shall continue in force, and apply, notwithstanding any change in the membership of such partnership, whether arising from death or retirement of one of the partners or the accession of one or more new partners.
