(Electronic Statements and Notifications)
This Agreement governs the receipt of your periodic account statements for those accounts which you designate ("Designated Accounts") through First Online Internet Banking. In addition, you may receive most disclosures and notices on your Designated Accounts through the same web-based electronic service instead of by regular mail ("Disclosures"). These Disclosures may include:
The delivery of periodic account statements and Disclosures electronically is referred to as the "e-Statements Service."
This Agreement is in addition to all other agreements you may have with First Bank of Newton ("Bank") including but not limited to the Cardholder Agreement, Deposit Agreement, Electronic Fund Transfer Disclosure, and First Online Internet Banking Agreement.
Delivery of e-Statements and Disclosures
Each account cycle, you will receive an e-mail, at the e-mail address designated by you through First Online Internet Banking, notifying you of the date when the periodic electronic statements ("e-Statements") for your Designated Accounts are available. This e-mail will be the only notice you receive of the availability of your e-Statement online. Viewing your e-Statements will require a valid User ID and password for First Online Internet Banking. After signing into First Online Internet Banking, you will be provided access to your e-Statement through the "Statements" menu. Access to your e-Statement will be provided for a period of fifteen (15) months from the date of e-mail. You may make a copy of an e-Statement for your records by printing it to an attached printer or downloading it to a storage device.
By using this Service, you will no longer receive paper statements for your Designated Accounts by U.S. mail. In addition you may receive Disclosures regarding your Designated Accounts electronically and not in paper form. Disclosures may be attached in an e-mail, contained in the text of an e-mail, posted separately from e-Statements on the "Statements" menu, contained within an e-Statement, or posted otherwise through First Online Internet Banking. Any e-mail notifying you of the availability of or containing an e-Statement or a Disclosure is referred to as a "Notice E-mail." Delivery of some Disclosures in electronic form does not require the Bank to deliver all notices or all notices of a particular type electronically.
A Notice E-mail to one owner of a joint owner Designated Account is considered notice to all owners. Notice E-mails will be considered sufficient notice regardless of whether you actually access the Notice E-mail or the e-Statements or Disclosures through First Online Internet Banking.
You are required to provide the Bank with a valid e-mail address. It is your responsibility to update your e-mail address through First Online Internet Banking if you change your e-mail address. If a Notice E-mail is returned undeliverable, the Bank may at its discretion discontinue your e-Statements Service and begin sending your periodic statements and Disclosures to you in paper form at the last postal address shown on our records.
