You should read this E-Consent carefully and maintain a copy, both in electronic and printed format, for the future eventuality.
You are in the process of applying for a loan on DirectLoanTransfer. Thus from here on, “we,” “us,” “our,” or “DirectLoanTransfer” are referred to us. In order to give you access to our online services, we need your consent to use and accept electronic signatures, electronic records, and electronic disclosures (“your consent”). This disclosure is not only information about how you will receive notices, disclosures, and information from us about your account on DirectLoanTransfer, but it also contains your agreement on those matters. Required Information can be quickly and conveniently sent to you by DirectLoanTransfer, with your consent, by displaying and receiving the needed information on this electronically and by allowing you to print and store on electronic devices the Required Information and to finally retain it for your records.
Options for Paper or Non-Electronic Records
A copy of the Required Information can also be received in paper copy at any time by logging in and printing a paper copy. You can also obtain it by contacting us by phone or mail with a written request. You will be charged nothing in order to obtain a paper copy of the Required Information. Another viable option for obtaining a paper copy may be accessing your account on DirectLoanTransfer.
Scope of the Consent
Any notices and disclosures from us required by the current legislation are included in the Required Information, which you accept with your consent. Your agreement and consent are considered valid for conducting transactions electronically, and it is such for any transaction and communication between you and DirectLoanTransfer whatsoever. Based on your consent, we will always process your loan application information and interact during this transaction and any future transaction via electronic format. We will also choose the electronic format for any notice related to your application, any transaction you enter, and other types of notices.
For what concerns this disclosure, the term “electronic record” has a precise meaning, and it is to be intended as a contract or other record generated, created, received, communicated, sent, or even stored electronically. An “electronic signature” is a sound, symbol, or procedure connected to or logically related to a contract or other record and completed or adopted by a person intending to sign the record.
You should review the important information in this disclosure before giving your consent to any electronic delivery of Required Information. Please notice that your consent is intended as permission for the general use of electronic records and electronic signatures connected to your account.
The Terms of Your Consent
In addition to what was previously said, the following will be the terms of your consent:
Right to Paper Records
You are entitled to request a paper copy of the Required Information freely. Yet if you do not give your agreement to electronic delivery of the Required Information, then you won’t be allowed to receive a loan and possess a DirectLoanTransfer account.
Right to Withdraw Consent
In any case, you are entitled to withdraw your consent at any time. But by revoking your consent, you will be unable to modify payment dates and amounts on your loan. Furthermore, you will not be allowed to have another loan before giving your consent to a new E-consent and disclosure again. The possibility to withdraw your consent can also be exercised in written form by mail. However, your decision to revoke your consent will not affect the legal effectiveness, validity, and/or enforceability of prior electronic disclosures of Required Information.
The Consent is Applied to our Entire Relationship
Indeed, suppose you give your consent to the electronic delivery of Required Information. In that case, the consent will be considered valid not only for what concerns the initial transaction but for every Required Information given to you or received from you in connection with your account over time of our relationship with you.
