E-Statement Disclosure

To receive deposit statements electronically, you must agree to receive certain information and disclosures electronically prior to enrollment. If you do not consent to receive information electronically you have the right to indicate “I do not agree” in the manner described at the end of this agreement. You have the right to withdraw consent to receiving information electronically by making written request either to E-Statement Delivery at P. O. Box 3668, Moultrie, GA 31776-3668 or to your local personal banker. If you withdraw consent to receive information electronically you will not be able to receive your statements electronically. You agree that the bank can terminate E-Statements and revert to printed mailed statements for any reason at any time.
Joint Accounts: Any owner may request an electronic statement. The Electronic Statement will eliminate the printed statement entirely. Paper statements will not be mailed to other owners of the account. However, if both owners of an account wish to have individual access, both will need to enroll and have separate login information. Any account owner may cancel an electronic statement. You are strongly encouraged to obtain the agreement of all account owners prior to implementing this agreement.
