This agreement applies to each account you have with 1st United Bank where electronic statements are available. In addition, you may receive most disclosures and notices on your designated accounts through the same web-based electronic service.
You have elected to have statements provided to you electronically through our online banking system; however you do have the right to receive paper statements. By submitting the Online statement form on the website, you agree that we may provide you with any statement relating to any account in electronic format, and that we may discontinue sending paper statements to you, unless and until you withdraw your consent as described below. Your consent to receive electronic communications and transactions includes, but is not limited to the following:
- Disclosures or agreements for your Account(s) of associated features
- Periodic disclosures or monthly statement for your Account(s)
- Notices or disclosures about a change in the terms of your Account(s) or associated features

Method of Providing Statements to You in Electronic Form
All statements that we provide to you in electronic form can be obtained by accessing our website at www.1stunited.com within our Online Banking System. Each month we will send an email notice to you advising you of the availability of your Electronic Statement with instructions on how to access your Electronic Statement. Your Electronic Statement will then be available for viewing for a period of 13 months from the date of each eStatement.
Requesting Paper Copies
We will not send you a paper copy of any statement from us on accounts where you have elected to receive electronic statements, unless you request it or we otherwise deem it appropriate to do so. You can obtain a paper copy of an electronic statement by printing it yourself or by requesting that we mail you a paper copy, provided that such request is made no later than seven years after we first provided the electronic statement to you. To request a paper copy, contact us by telephone at (800-282-7170). We may charge you a reasonable research service charge for the delivery of paper copies of any statements provided to you electronically pursuant to your authorization. We reserve the right, but assume no obligation, to provide a paper (instead of electronic) copy of any statement that you have authorized us to provide electronically.
