uOpen Electronic Disclosure and Consent

Federal E-SIGN Act Disclosure and Consent

Please read this Federal Electronic Signatures in Global and National Commerce Act (“E-Sign”) Disclosure and Consent carefully and keep a copy for your records. This disclosure and consent allows us to provide you with electronic versions of important documents (hereafter referred to as the Documents): disclosures, agreements, change notices, terms and conditions, account statements, and any other documents, both for this transaction and in the future that would otherwise be required by law or regulation to be provided “in writing” (on paper). Once you consent to receive the account opening disclosures electronically, you may request paper copies or revoke your consent as described below, which may result in a fee.


The words “we”, “our”, and “us” mean Mechanics Cooperative Bank, successors, and assigns.

The words “you” and “your” mean each applicant, account owner, and anyone else with access to the account. If there are multiple owners, then these words mean each account owner separately, and all account owners jointly.

“Access Device” means any electronic device you use to initiate online account opening, access your account, and view electronic documents, and may be a traditional computer or a mobile device such as a tablet or smartphone.

Electronic Delivery of Disclosures and Notices

In order to use the Online Account Opening Product and to access, receive and retain the Documents, you must provide, at your own expense, an Internet connected device that is compatible with this financial institution’s Online Account Opening product deployed at the time of access. Your device must meet the minimum requirements outlined below. You also confirm that your device will meet these specifications and requirements and will permit you to access and retain the Documents electronically each time you access and use the Online Account Opening product, and that you will notify the Bank in the event that your device will not meet the specifications and requirements.

Please click on the HTML links to review the disclosures prior to continuing with your application. In order to retain, you may print the documents by selecting “Download”. Select your printer and click on OK or select Save to retain a copy on your PC. If you are working on a public computer, you should not engage in online account opening.

We retain the right, but assume no obligation, to provide a paper (instead of electronic) copy of any Document that you have authorized us to provide electronically.

You may withdraw your consent to this Disclosure and Consent at any time. To withdraw prior to completion of your application, you may exit this session without selecting the checkbox. To withdraw subsequently, from receipt of Documents in electronic form for any of your Accounts, or to request paper copies of any records which you previously received electronically, you must Contact Us (see How to Contact Us section below). We may treat your provision of an invalid email address or the subsequent malfunction of a previously valid address or cancellation of participation in our online banking product as a withdrawal of your consent to receive electronic statements.
