In our sole discretion, the Communications we provide to you, or that you sign or agree to at our request, may be in electronic form (“Electronic Records”). We may also use electronic signatures and obtain them from you as part of our transactions with you.
Electronic Records may be delivered to you in a variety of ways. These various delivery methods are described in our Member Account Terms and Conditions, Platform Use & License Agreement, and in other agreements we may have with you from time to time. In some cases, you will be able to choose whether to receive certain Communications electronically, or on paper, or both.
We may always, in our sole discretion, provide you with any Communication via paper, even if you have chosen to receive it electronically.
Sometimes the law, or our agreement with you, requires you to give us a written notice. You must still provide these notices to us on paper, unless we specifically tell you in another Communication how you may deliver that notice to us electronically.
There are certain Communications that by law we are not permitted to deliver to you electronically, even with your consent. So long as required by law, we will continue to deliver those Communications to you in writing. However, if the law changes in the future and permits any of those Communications to be delivered as Electronic Records, this Agreement will automatically cover those Communications as well.
If applicable, we will continue to provide your tax statements on paper unless you separately elect to receive them electronically (if available)
If we provide Electronic Records to you, and you want a paper copy, you may contact client services and request a paper version.You may have to pay a fee for the paper copy unless charging a fee is prohibited by applicable law.
