From time to time, Great American Insurance Company or its affiliates (we, us or Company) may provide to you certain written records or disclosures related to this transaction ("records"). Described below are the terms and conditions for providing to you such records electronically through the DocuSign, Inc. (DocuSign) electronic signing system. Please read the information below carefully and thoroughly, and if you can access this information electronically to your satisfaction and agree to this Electronic Record and Signature Disclosure (ERSD), please confirm your agreement by selecting the check-box next to 'I agree to use electronic records and signatures' before clicking 'CONTINUE' within the DocuSign system. Your agreement to receive records electronically does not mean that we must provide them to you electronically. We may, at our discretion, or as required by law, provide you records through non-electronic means.
Getting paper copies
At any time, you may request from us a paper copy of any record provided or made available electronically to you by us. You will have the ability to download and print documents we send to you through the DocuSign system during and immediately after signing session and, if you elect to create a DocuSign signer account, you may access them for a limited period of time (usually 30 days) after such documents are first sent to you. You may request delivery of such paper copies from us by following the procedure described below.
Withdrawing your consent
If you decide to receive records from us electronically, you may at any time change your mind and tell us that thereafter you want to receive the records only in paper format. How you must inform us of your decision to receive the records in paper format and withdraw your consent to receive the records electronically is described below.
Consequences of changing your mind
If you elect to receive records only in paper format, it may slow the speed at which we can complete certain steps in transactions with you and delivering services to you because we may need first to send the required records to you in paper format, and then wait until we receive back from you your acknowledgment of your receipt of such paper records. To indicate to us that you are changing your mind, you must withdraw your consent using the DocuSign 'Withdraw Consent' form on the signing page of a DocuSign envelope instead of signing it. This will indicate to us that you have withdrawn your consent to receive required records electronically from us and you will no longer be able to use the DocuSign system to receive required records electronically from us or to sign electronically documents from us.
