Electronic Delivery of Statements and Notices
By accepting the “Fairfield County Bank’s e-Statement Disclosure Agreement”, you consent and agree that Fairfield County Bank (FCB) may provide certain disclosures and notices to you in an electronic form, in lieu of paper form, including electronic delivery of statements (e-Statements) for your FCB deposit account(s).

As used in this Agreement, the words “we”, “our”, “us”, and “FCB” mean Fairfield County Bank. “You” and “your” mean the account owner(s) authorized to receive e-Statements under this Agreement. “Account” or “accounts” mean your deposit accounts at FCB. “Business days” means Monday through Friday, excluding Federal holidays.

Scope of Consent for Elimination of Paper Statements
Your consent to no longer receive paper statements covers the periodic statements and truncated copies of paper checks you are provided in connection with your FCB deposit account(s). Your consent also covers disclosures that are required with your account statements, including, but not limited to, the error resolution notice required by the Electronic Fund Transfer Act, as well as marketing information on products and/or promotions that FCB may provide to you electronically. By using e-Statements, you accept and agree to be bound by the general terms and conditions governing e-Statements, including without limitation all the terms and conditions in this Agreement. You agree to be bound by any and all laws, rules, regulations and official issuances applicable to e-Statements now existing or which may hereafter be enacted, issued or enforced, as well as such other terms and conditions governing the use of other facilities, benefits or services that FCB may from time to time make available to you in connection with e-Statements.

FCB has absolute discretion to make e-Statements available to you. Further, FCB has the discretion from time to time and upon giving notice to you to modify, restrict, withdraw, cancel, suspend or discontinue e-Statements without giving any reason and you understand that by using e-Statements after any modification or change has been effected, you would have agreed to such modification or change. If FCB discontinues e-statements you will begin receiving paper statements prior to the termination of the e-statement service.

You may receive a paper statement the month following your request to terminate the delivery of paper statements.  After consenting to no longer receive a paper statement, FCB will discontinue mailing paper account statements for your e-Statement account. All future statements for that account will be e-Statements which you will access through FCB’s Personal Online Banking to obtain, review, print, and copy/download your periodic deposit account statements. You may access your e-Statement via the procedures that we authorize. Your electronic statement will be available for viewing for a period of twenty-four (24) months (or such period as decided by FCB and notified to you) from the applicable statement date.

Scope of Consent for Electronic Delivery of Notices
Your consent to receive electronic notices covers any notice or other type of communication provided to you pursuant to the terms of this Agreement.

We will send all notices, attachments, and/or documents via e-mail to the last known email address provided by you. You agree to notify us promptly of any change of your email address.  You are responsible for updating your email address via Connect24 Internet Banking.

Duty to Review Periodic Statements
You must promptly access/review your e-Statement and any accompanying items and notify us in writing immediately of any error, unauthorized transaction, or any other irregularity. If you allow someone else to access your statement, you are still fully responsible to review the statement for any errors, unauthorized transactions, or any other irregularities. Any applicable time periods within which you must notify us of any errors on your account statement(s) shall begin on the e-Statement email notification date regardless of when you access and/or review your e-Statement. If you do not immediately report to FCB any non-receipt of e-Statements or any error, irregularity, discrepancies, claims or unauthorized debits or items, you shall be deemed conclusively to have accepted all matters contained in the e-Statements to be true, accurate and correct in all respects.

Please note that you must provide us with an email address in order to use the e-Statement service.

Joint Accounts
If your FCB account is owned jointly with another person, either one of you may consent to receive electronic disclosures and e-Statements and that person’s election to access e-Statements shall apply to both of you. FCB will automatically turn off the paper statement for that account after the first e-Statement has been made available unless you request to continue to receive your paper statements in addition to your e-Statements (please refer to Requesting to Receive Paper Statements in Addition to e-Statements).

You agree that FCB shall not be liable if you are unable to gain access to the website or FCB system from time to time.
