Square can only provide these disclosures and other information electronically if the applicant consents.

Definitions

In this E-Sign Consent, the following definitions apply: ‘I’, and ‘me’ mean the person or persons who is applying to establish a Square Account. ‘You’ means Square and any person, company, bank or financial institution that is an assignee of Square’s rights.

During the sign-up process for the Square Account, by ticking the box: ‘I/We have read and have the authority to agree, and by ticking this box do agree, to the terms of the Square Seller Agreement, Privacy Policy and E-Sign Consent (including agreement to dispute resolution by arbitration)’ I consent and agree that:

  • Ticking the box has the same effect as if I signed the agreements in ink;
  • You can send all communications, billing statements and disclosures, including, but not limited to, this Square E-Sign Consent, the Square Privacy Policy, the Square Seller Agreement, the Square Commercial Entity Agreement and any federal and state tax statements and documents (collectively defined as ‘Disclosures’) to me electronically (i) via email or (ii) by access to a website that you designate in an email notice you send to me at the time the information is available (and you will make the Disclosure available on the website for a reasonable period of time for retrieval by you) or (iii) to the extent permissible by law, by access to a website that you generally designate in advance for such purpose;
  • Paper Disclosures will no longer be given to me (unless I specifically request for paper Disclosures in accordance with section 4 below);
  • I will regularly check my electronic communications (including, but not limited to, email) for Disclosures; and
  • I can withdraw my consent to receiving the Disclosures by electronic communication at any time by notifying you in accordance with section 4 below.
