Important Information about procedures for opening a new account
To help the government fight the funding of terrorism and money laundering activities, Federal law requires all financial institutions to obtain, verify and record information that identifies each person who opens an account. What this means for you: When you open an account, we will ask for your name, address, date of birth and other information that will allow us to identify you. We may also ask to see your driver's license or other identifying documents.
We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause; however, federal law prohibits us from waiving these requirements.
In order to process this loan application online, you must consent to the electronic delivery of certain disclosures from this institution in electronic form rather than paper form.
Please read the following important information about receiving disclosures electronically.
Definitions. The words “we”, “us”, and “our” refer to Equity Bank, and the words “you” and “your” mean you, the applicant(s) and their agents. “Account” means the loan account you are applying for.
Electronic Signature Consent. Before electronically signing this or any other document pertaining to Equity Bank, you agree to review it first, and then electronically sign each document on a case by case basis. Each decision to view or sign a document electronically does not affect the legal effect of any transactions already completed using either electronic or paper-based documents and signatures. If you agree to execute this eDisclosure Agreement and any other documents that we may provide to you in connection with Equity Bank, place a check in the appropriate box and/or click the “I Agree” or similar button at the end of each such agreement as instructed. By doing this you are indicating your consent via an electronic signature to the terms and conditions contained in such agreement.

In order to agree to this eDisclosure Agreement and the receipt of disclosures, notices and communications from us in electronic form, you must provide us with a valid and working email address. Electronic communications will be sent to the email address that you or any co-applicants provided in your application, and you agree to forward disclosures to all other applicants.

You must notify us of any change in your email address by calling 1-888-733-5041 or emailing email@example.com at least three business days in advance to the change. Failure to notify us may result in a delay or lack of delivery of electronic communication for the given period.

By agreeing to this eDisclosure agreement, you accept the responsibility of reviewing all disclosures, notices and communications we provide in electronic form.
Reservation of Right to Send Paper Communications. Your consent to receive disclosures, notices and communications in electronic form does not mean we will only communicate with you electronically. We reserve the right to use all lawful methods of communication and provide legal notices and other communications and documents in paper form from time to time when legally required to do so or when we in our sole discretion elect to do so. You are solely responsible for ensuring any mailing address we have on file for you is current.

Withdrawal will not apply to actions already taken or initiated in reliance on your consent. You will not be charged a fee for your withdrawal of consent.
Consent Coverage; Notices From You Are Not Covered. Applicable laws or contracts sometimes require you to give us “written” notices, and your consent herein does not relate to those items. In order to coordinate our processing, you must still provide us notice on paper.
