Hardware and Software Requirements.
In order to access, view, and retain electronic Communications from us, you must have:
Requesting Paper Copies.
You should not expect to receive a paper copy of any Communication, unless you request it or we otherwise deem it appropriate to do so. You can obtain a paper copy of an electronic Communication by printing it yourself or by requesting that we mail you a paper copy, provided that such request is made within a reasonable time after we first provided the electronic Communication to you. To request a paper copy, contact us by telephone, or by logging in to Online Banking and send a request using your Secure Inbox. We may charge you a reasonable service charge, of which we've provided you prior notice, for the delivery of paper copies of any Communication provided to you electronically pursuant to this authorization. We reserve the right, but assume no obligation, to provide a paper (instead of electronic) copy of any Communication that you have authorized us to provide electronically.
Communications in Writing.
All Communications in either electronic or paper format from us to you will be considered "in writing." You should print or download for your records a copy of this Disclosure and any other Communication that is important to you.
You acknowledge and agree that your consent to electronic Communications is being provided in connection with a transaction affecting interstate commerce that is subject to the federal Electronic Signatures in Global and National Commerce Act (the "Act"), and that you and we both intend that the Act apply to the fullest extent possible to validate our ability to conduct business with you by electronic means.
We reserve the right, in our sole discretion, to discontinue the provision of your electronic Communications, or to terminate or change the terms and conditions on which we provide electronic Communications. We will provide you with notice of any such termination or change as required by law.
E-mail Address of Record for Accounts with Joint and/or Multiple Owners.
Each account owner is able to provide an e-mail address for Account in connection with each owner's consent to receive electronic Communications. Only one account owner's authorization is required to enroll in Online Statements.
For purposes of electronic notification for Online Statements on a joint or multiple owner account, you agree that electronic notifications for Online Statements delivered to the e-mail address of the account owner who enrolls in Online Statements will constitute delivery to all account owners, even if all account owners may not have access to such e-mail address.
If you have designated one or more interested parties to receive copies of your account statements, trade confirmations or other documents, they will continue to receive copies of such documents via U.S. Mail.
By selecting the “I Accept” button, you are signing this Agreement electronically. You agree your electronic signature is the legal equivalent of your manual signature. By selecting “I Accept” you consent to be legally bound by this Agreement’s terms and conditions. You further agree that any means of electronic acceptance (PC, tablet, phone, etc.) authorizing First Interstate transactions will constitute your legal signature just as if you had accepted the transaction by physically signing a document. Additionally you agree that no certification authority or other means of verification is necessary to validate your electronic signature at the transaction level and the absence of that does not impact the enforceability of your electronic signature or any resulting contract between you and First Interstate Bank. You also are validating that you are authorized to enter into this Agreement on behalf of all parties with access to this account. In addition, you agree that each use of your electronic signature constitutes your agreement to be bound by the terms and conditions of your Account Agreement. Your right to “opt out” of electronic signature and delivery is described in other sections of the agreement and by selecting “I Accept” you acknowledge that you have read and understood your rights therein.
