This E-SIGN Consent Agreement (“Agreement”) allows us to provide you with electronic versions of important notices and documents associated with opening an account at Applause Technology, Inc. (“Applause”). Certain laws and regulations require us to provide notices and disclosures to you in “writing” (traditionally this is defined as a paper notice); with your consent, the E-SIGN Act allows us to provide these documents to you electronically.
The words “we,” “our,” and “us” mean Applause affiliates, successors, and assigns.
The words “you” and “your” mean each applicant, customer, account owner and anyone else with access to the account.
“Access Device” means any electronic device you use to access your account and view electronic documents. This includes but is not limited to a traditional computer such as a desktop or laptop computer; or a mobile device such as a tablet computer or a smartphone.
Scope of this Agreement
This Agreement applies to all initial disclosures, notices, and terms and conditions related to opening a user account with Applause, as well as all communications and/or disclosures that Applause is legally required to provide to you in writing in connection with ongoing servicing of your account. This consent will remain effective through the account application process and your use of the account or until expressly withdrawn by you. Your consent does not mean that we must provide documents electronically but instead that we may deliver some or all of those documents electronically.
Electronic Delivery of Documents
Electronic documents will be delivered to you within the Applause platform as an electronic document. You may download and open the electronic documents and you are strongly encouraged to save or print the documentation for future reference.
Requesting Paper Copies of Documents Presented Electronically
You agree and understand that paper versions of electronically presented documents may not be mailed unless you specifically request it. To request a paper copy of any disclosure, notice, or other document, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Copies of disclosures, service agreements, and account agreements will be mailed at no charge.
By consenting to this agreement, you confirm that your Access Device meets the minimum specifications and requirements necessary to view and retain your electronic documents.
To access your electronic documents on a mobile device, you will need:
A mobile device with any of the following operating systems: Android or iOS (iPhone).
A data plan provided by your wireless carrier and an up-to-date mobile internet browser that is compatible with, and supported by, your operating system (e.g., Chrome or Safari).
If you wish to view .pdf files on your mobile device, you will need software that accurately reads and displays .pdf files (such as the mobile version of Adobe Reader).
A printer and/or storage device if you wish to print or retain electronic documents.
To access your electronic documents on a traditional computer, you will need:
A computer with any of the following operating systems: Windows XP or higher, OS X (Apple Macintosh) or higher.
An internet connection and an up-to-date internet browser that is compatible with, and supported by, your operating system (e.g., Internet Explorer, Firefox, Google Chrome, or Safari).
Software that accurately reads and displays .pdf files (such as Adobe Reader).
A printer and/or storage device if you wish to print or retain any electronic documents.
Changes to system requirements
We will notify you if our hardware or software requirements change and whether that change creates a material risk that you would not be able to access or retain your electronic documents. Continuing to receive electronic documents after receiving notice of the change is the reaffirmation of your consent to this Agreement.
Maintaining a Valid Email Address
It is important that you maintain a valid email address so that we may contact you regarding your account. You agree to maintain a valid email address and promptly notify us of any changes to your email address. You may update your email address by contacting us at email@example.com.

You may withdraw your consent to this Agreement at any time.
To withdraw your consent prior to completing your application, simply exit this session prior to accepting this Agreement.
To withdraw your consent after you have already submitted your application or established an account, you must contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you withdraw your consent to this Agreement, we may close your account and stop providing you with services. The legal validity and enforceability of prior communications delivered in electronic form will not be affected by your withdrawal of consent.
Multiple Access Devices
Your acceptance of this agreement on one Access Device constitutes your acceptance on all Access Devices you use. For example, if you view and accept this agreement on a mobile device, the terms of this Agreement will apply to electronic documents accessed on a traditional computer (or vice versa). Additionally, by viewing and accepting this agreement on any Access Device, you are reasonably demonstrating your ability to access and view electronic documents in the format that the services are provided on that Access Device and all subsequent Access Devices. If you change Access Devices (or use multiple Access Devices), it is your responsibility to ensure that the new Access Device meets the applicable system requirements and that you are still able to access and view electronic documents on the subsequent Access Device.
Please contact us at email@example.com if you have difficulties accessing or viewing electronic documents on your selected Access Device.
You will be asked to acknowledge your acceptance of these terms by checking the box before you are able to continue with your application. In doing so, you are confirming that you meet the system requirements described above, that you have demonstrated your ability to receive, retain, and view electronic documents on your Access Device, and that you have an active and valid email address.
