Gathering, Use and Disclosure of Non-Personally-Identifying Information Users of the Website Generally
“Non-Personally-Identifying Information” is information that, without the aid of additional information, cannot be directly associated with a specific person.
“Personally-Identifying Information,” by contrast, is information such as a name or email address that, without more, can be directly associated with a specific person.
Like most website operators, Company gathers from users of the Website Non-Personally-Identifying Information of the sort that Web browsers, depending on their settings, may make available. That information includes the user’s Internet Protocol (“IP”) address, operating system and browser type, and the locations of the Web pages the user views right before arriving at, while navigating and immediately after leaving the Website.
Company analyzes Non-Personally-Identifying Information gathered from users of the Website to help Company better understand how the Website is being used. By identifying patterns and trends in usage, Company is able to better design the Website to improve users’ experiences, both in terms of content and ease of use. From time to time, Company may also release the Non-Personally-Identifying Information gathered from Website users in the aggregate, such as by publishing a report on trends in the usage of the Website. All such Non-Personally-Identifying Information including any copyrights in such data are the sole property of Company.
Web Cookies A “Web Cookie” is a string of information that a website stores on a user’s computer, and that the user’s browser provides to the website each time the user submits a query to the site. Company uses Web Cookies to track the pages that users visit during each Website session, both to help Company improve users’ experiences and to help Company understand how the Website is being used.
As with other Non-Personally-Identifying Information gathered from users of the Website, Company analyzes and discloses in aggregated form information gathered using Web Cookies, so as to help Company, its suppliers, contractors, sales procurement providers, and others better understand how the Website is being used. Company does not attempt to link information gathered using Web Cookies to Personally-Identifying Information.

UNDERSTANDING THAT CERTAIN FEATURES OF THE WEBSITE MAY NOT FUNCTION PROPERLY WITHOUT THE AID OF WEB COOKIES. WEBSITE USERS WHO REFUSE WEB COOKIES ASSUME ALL RESPONSIBILITY FOR ANY RESULTING LOSS OF FUNCTIONALITY.
Web BeaconsA “Web Beacon” is an object that is embedded in a web page that is usually invisible to the user and allows website operators to check whether a user has viewed a particular web page. Company may use Web Beacons on the Website to count users who have visited particular pages and to deliver co-branded services. Web Beacons are not used to access users’ PersonallyIdentifying Information; they are a technique Company may use to compile aggregated statistics about Website usage. Web Beacons collect only a limited set of information including a cookie number, time and date of a page view, and a description of the page on which the Web Beacon resides.
You may not decline Web Beacons, however, they can be rendered ineffective by declining all cookies or modifying your browser setting to notify you each time a cookie is tendered and permit you to accept or decline cookies on an individual basis.

Collection and Use of Information by Third Parties Generally
This policy is effective as of and was last updated on January 24, 2016.
Consent To Do Business Electronically
(the eDisclosure Agreement)
The mortgage loan that you have applied for involves various disclosures, records, and documents ("Loan
Documents"), including this eDisclosure Agreement. The purpose of this eDisclosure Agreement is to
make you aware that the Federal E-SIGN ACT allows us to provide these documents to you via electronic
means verse paper form once we obtain your consent. You will also be able to sign and authorize these
Loan Documents electronically, rather than on paper.
Before we engage in this transaction electronically, it is important that you understand your rights and responsibilities. Please read the following and affirm your consent to conduct business with us electronically.
In this consent, "we" "us" and "our" are used to refer to First Bank & Trust, and to any assignee to whom we may propose to sell the loan or service the loan. For purposes of this eDisclosure Agreement, "eDisclosures" means the Loan Documents related to this transaction that are provided electronically, and "You" and "Your" mean the borrower(s) under the applicable loan to which such Loan Documents apply.
- Your consent to participate in this transaction electronically will apply to all Loan Documents for the applicable loans for which you are applying. We will conduct this transaction electronically, instead of providing you with the Loan Documents in paper form.
- If a document related to your loan is not available in electronic form, a paper copy will be provided to you free of charge.
- Conducting this transaction electronically is an option. If you choose not to accept receipt of eDisclosures, paper Loan Documents will be mailed to you.
- If you do not consent to receive these Loan Documents electronically, you will be provided with copies of the Loan Documents in paper form. You will not be required to pay a fee for receiving paper copies of the Loan Documents.
WITHDRAWAL OF CONSENT
- You have the right to withdraw your consent at any time. By declining or revoking your consent to receive eDisclosures, we will provide you with the Loan Documents in paper form.
- If You originally consent to receive eDisclosures, but later decide to withdraw your consent, notify
your Residential Mortgage Loan Originator or our main office at
Address: 2077 E. Gause Blvd.,
- If you originally consent to receive eDisclosures, but later withdraw your consent you will not be required to pay a fee for withdrawing consent and receiving paper copies of the Loan Documents. OBTAINING PAPER COPIES
- After your consent is given, you may request from us paper copies of Your Loan Documents. Please notify your Residential Mortgage Loan Originator or our main office at
Address: 2077 E. Gause Blvd.,
- If you request paper copies of the Loan Documents you will not be required to pay a fee for receiving paper copies of the Loan Documents.
- In order to receive eDisclosures, you must have a computer with Internet access and an Internet email account and address; an Internet browser using 128-bit encryption or higher, Adobe Acrobat 7.0 or higher, SSL encryption and access to a printer or the ability to download information in order to keep copies of your eDisclosures for your records.
- If the software or hardware requirements change in the future, and you are unable to continue receiving eDisclosures, paper copies of such Loan Documents will be mailed to you once you notify us that you are no longer able to access the eDisclosures because of the changed requirements. We will use commercially reasonable efforts to notify you before such requirements change. If you choose to withdraw your consent upon notification of the change, you will be able to do so without penalty.
HOW WE CAN REACH YOU
- You must promptly notify us if there is a change in your email address or in other information needed
to contact you electronically. You can contact Us at:
Address: 2077 E. Gause Blvd.,
- We will not assume liability for non-receipt of notification of the availability of eDisclosures in the event your email address on file is invalid; your email or Internet service provider filters the notification as "spam" or "junk mail"; there is a malfunction in your computer, browser, Internet service and/or software; or for other reasons beyond our control.
Please indicate your consent to receive electronic documents by checking the "I Accept" box below. You
are also confirming that you have the necessary computer software and hardware to accept the electronic
forms and that we have your valid, active e-mail address.
Please note that if you choose "I Decline" to accept documents electronically, this does preclude us for sending any Loan Documentation via e-mail as well as secure document transfer. If at a later date, you request that we e-mail any Loan Document, we will need this eDisclosure Agreement executed to acknowledge your acceptance.
eSignature Credit Authorization Agreement
Electronic Signature (eSignature): You consent and agree that your use of a key pad, touch screen, mouse or other device to sign or select an item, button, icon or similar act/action while using any electronic service we offer; or in accessing or making any transactions regarding any document, agreement, acknowledgement, consent, term, disclosure, or condition constitutes your signature, acceptance and agreement as if actually signed by you in writing. Further, you agree that no certification authority or other third party verification is necessary to validate your electronic signature; and that the lack of such certification or third party verification will not in any way affect the enforceability of your signature or resulting agreement between you and First Bank & Trust. You understand and agree that your eSignature executed in conjunction with the electronic submission will be legally binding and such transaction will be considered authorized by you.
By affixing my electronic signature, I authorize First Bank & Trust to obtain a credit report and that this information be used to pre-qualify me for a mortgage loan.
On June 30, 2000, President Clinton signed into law the The Electronic Signatures in Global and National Commerce Act (The E-Sign Act). The E-Sign Act makes e-signatures as legally binding as ink-and-paper signatures. The E-Sign Act also eliminates legal barriers to storing documents and sending notices electronically. A credit professional may now engage in e-credit transactions across state lines and the credit sale contract is valid in all states.
Neither the E-Sign Act nor the FCRA should bar a credit professional from obtaining an electronic consent to pull a credit report, and otherwise be in full compliance with the FCRA. However, the E-Sign Act requires that the consumer decides whether to use an e-signature or handwritten.
