Please reed the following important information carefully and retain a copy for future reference. As part of your relationship with us, you have the right to receive certain information “in writing” – which means you are entitled to receive such information on paper. The federal ESIGN Act and certain state laws allow us to provide this information to you electronically, instead, with your prior consent. To better serve you, we need your consent to use Electronic Records (defined below) in our relationship with you generally. This document informs you of your rights when receiving Electronic Records from us in connection with any The Home Depot Loan Services bank loan for which you apply (“Account”). You must read and consent to the terms outlined below.
