ELECTRONIC RECORD AND SIGNATURE DISCLOSURE
From time to time, the Georgia State Accounting Office (we, our, us, SAO) may be required by law to provide you certain written notices or disclosures. Described below are the terms and conditions for providing you such notices and disclosures electronically. Please read the information below carefully and thoroughly. If you agree to these terms and conditions, please confirm your agreement by clicking the 'I agree' button at the bottom of this document.
All notices and disclosures will be sent to you electronically
Unless you tell us otherwise in accordance with the procedures described herein, we will electronically provide to you all notices, disclosures, authorizations, acknowledgements, and other documents that are required to be provided or made available to you during the course of our relationship with you. To reduce the chance of you inadvertently not receiving any notice or disclosure, we prefer to provide all required notices and disclosures to you by the same method and to the same address that you have given us. If you do not agree with this process, please let us know as described below. Please also see the paragraph that describes the consequences of your electing not to receive electronic delivery of the notices and disclosures.
Getting paper copies
At any time, you may request from us a paper copy of any record that we provided or made available electronically within 30 days of the initial electronic delivery. If you wish for us to send you paper copies you may be charged a per-page fee.
Consequences of changing your mind
If you elect to receive required notices and disclosures only in paper format, it will slow the speed at which we can complete certain steps in transactions with you, and deliver services to you, because we will need mail the required notices or disclosures to you in paper format. We then must wait until we receive your acknowledgment of your receipt of such paper notices or disclosures.
To indicate to us that you are changing your mind, you must withdraw your consent by sending us an email specifically requesting withdrawal from the electronic notification system. This will indicate to us that you have withdrawn your consent to receive required notices and disclosures electronically. You will no longer be able to use the SAO online forms to submit content and you will no longer receive required notices and consents electronically from us.
Withdrawing your consent
If you decide to receive notices and disclosures from us electronically, you may at any time change your mind and tell us that thereafter you want to receive required notices and disclosures only in paper format. The method for doing so is described below.
