Authorization and Consent to Electronic Account Disclosures & Communications:

You agree and authorize us to provide account agreements, disclosures and account-related information and communications (“Account Disclosures & Communications”) electronically in lieu of a paper version for any product, service or account that you have or apply for with us, either now or in the future. Account Disclosures & Communications may include, but are not limited to, deposit account agreement and disclosures, account statements, account and service notices, changes in account agreement terms, and any disclosures that are required by law or regulation to be provided to you in writing.

All Account Disclosures & Communications delivered to you electronically will be considered “in writing” and will be given the same legal effect as if such document was delivered in paper form. You should print, download or otherwise save each Account Disclosure & Communication provided to you electronically for your records. For any Account Disclosure & Communication that we provided to you electronically, we have no obligation to provide you with a paper copy of that document unless and until your consent is withdrawn as described below. We reserve the right, but assume no obligation, to provide any electronic Account Disclosures & Communications in paper form unless your Account has been designated as a hold mail account and subject to the terms and conditions of the account agreement.

Method of Electronic Account Disclosures & Communications:

All Account Disclosures & Communications that we provide to you electronically will be: (1) provided either by email at the e-mail address you have provided to us; (2) on-screen on our website or for download through our online e-banking or mobile banking services; (3) attached to other electronic communications delivered to you; or (4) in a manner otherwise specified in any other agreement with us.

Any Account Disclosures and Communications that we make available through electronic banking channels will remain accessible for a period of time which we may establish in our discretion and which may vary with the type of communication.

We reserve the right to provide paper Account Disclosures and Communications to you at any time at your designated mailing address unless your Account has been designated as a hold mail account and subject to the terms and conditions of the account agreement.

Electronic Account Disclosures & Communications:

You consent and agree that such Electronic Account Disclosures and Communications may be delivered to you by posting to your online account or on our website which we may, from time to time, communicate to you, by sending such Account Disclosures and Communications to your designated email address, or by making such Account Disclosures and Communications available to you during your online session.

Account Disclosures and Communications that you agree to accept electronically would include, without limitation, all regulatory and other notices and disclosures required by law (including Privacy Policy disclosures) and other information.

Your consent also permits us to obtain your electronic signature if you choose to sign certain Account Disclosures and Communications electronically.

If you do sign electronically, your electronic signature will bind you to the terms and conditions to the same extent as if you signed the Account Disclosures and Communications on paper with an ink signature.

Your Right to Withdraw Consent:

You have the right to withdraw your consent to receive Electronic Account Disclosures & Communication at any time by contacting us at 1-242-302-5950 or by sending an email to info@lucayasbank.com If you do this, we will need a reasonable amount of time to implement your instructions and we will terminate your access to online e-banking but your accounts will otherwise remain unaffected.

If you do not provide your consent or later withdraw your consent for Electronic Account Disclosures & Communications, you may not be permitted to access or use any of our online or mobile banking services, including those Accounts which require use of online or mobile banking services.

However, your withdrawal of consent will not affect the legal validity or enforceability of prior electronic Account Disclosures & Communications.

We also reserve the right to terminate your use of any service, to amend the terms and features of any service, and/or to convert you to a different service or product in the event that you should withdraw your consent.

An increase in service fees or charges may apply if you withdraw your consent of receiving electronic communications. We may, but are not required to, treat an invalid email address and/or phone number as a withdrawal of your consent to receive electronic Account Disclosures and Communications.

Your Right to Obtain Paper Copies:

You may obtain a paper copy of any Account Disclosures & Communications delivered electronically by printing such disclosure or document yourself or by contacting us as provided below. We reserve the right, subject to applicable law, to charge a fee for providing a paper copy of any Account Disclosures & Communications previously delivered to you electronically.

Any change to your e-mail address will be effective only after we have received the changed address and had a reasonable period of time to process the change.
