Last Updated: March 17, 2020

As part of your relationship with us, we are required by law to give you certain information “in writing.” We may also need to obtain your signature to perform certain functions. If you prefer, you can choose to both receive information and to provide necessary signatures related to your relationship with us electronically, instead. In order to do this, we first need your consent to use electronic records and signatures.

This Consent to the use of Electronic Documents and Signatures (the “Agreement”) describes how Self Financial, Inc. and its affiliates and subsidiaries (collectively, “Self”) and any of Self’s third party issuing banks (each, an “Issuing Bank”) (together with Self, “we,” or “us”) communicate and contract electronically with you, the person registering for or using the Services (as that term is defined in the Self Financial, Inc. Terms and Conditions) (“Customer,” “you,” or “your”). Please review this Agreement carefully and completely as it applies to all initial and future communications, disclosures, notices, agreements, and updates thereto (collectively, “Communications”) related to the Services, including without limitation in connection with any Self account or membership, credit builder loan and associated account, or secured credit card and associated account.

Scope of Communications to Be Provided in Electronic Form

Your consent to receive electronic Communications includes, but is not limited to, all legal and regulatory notices and disclosures, agreements and communications associated with a Service we may make accessible or available, or offer to you, whether through a website, software application, email, messaging services (including text messages), or otherwise.

All Communications provided to you in electronic form may be provided either (1) via email, (2) by making it available online and accessible via your account “dashboard,” or (3) by requesting you download a PDF file containing the Communication, or (4) other means we make available to you.

We may always, in our sole discretion, provide you with any Communication in writing or send it to you via the U.S. mail or other means of delivery, even if you have chosen to receive it electronically. We may require any information you provide to us, or any document you sign, to be delivered to us in writing. You should print or download a copy of any Electronic Records for your own records, including this Agreement.

How to Withdraw Consent and/or Receive Paper Disclosures

To withdraw your consent, please contact us at the following address: Self Financial, Inc., 901 E 6th Street, Suite 400, Austin, TX 78702. Be sure to clearly state which Communications you wish to receive in paper form, indicate whether you are withdrawing consent or merely requesting a paper copy of any past Communications, and include your name and mailing address. Your request will apply only to those specific Communications you designate. We will not impose any fee to process the withdrawal of your consent to receive electronic Communications or to receive communications in paper form. Any withdrawal of your consent to receive electronic Communications will be effective only after we have a reasonable period of time to process your withdrawal.
