Effective Date: October 28, 2022
By choosing to use the Mobile App or the Services, you will receive from time-to-time disclosures, notices, documents, and any other communications about our Services, the Mobile App, or Credit Genie from Credit Genie ("Communications"). We can only give you the benefits of our Services by conducting business through the Internet, and therefore we need you to consent to receiving Communications electronically. This section informs you of your rights when receiving electronic Communications from us. We may discontinue electronic provision of Communications at any time in our sole discretion.

We may contact you for any purpose related to any account you have, such as payment reminders or suspicious activity.
You agree that Credit Genie may contact you to tell you about, and to offer for sale, products or services we believe will be of interest to you. If we do so, each communication we send to you will contain instructions permitting you to "opt out" of receiving future communications.
You agree that Credit Genie may use agents or representatives to contact you on our behalf.

1.7 Push Notifications / Alerts
You may select for Credit Genie to send you messages called "Alerts" by text or phone. Alerts may be delayed or prevented by factor(s) affecting your internet/phone provider or other relevant entities. Credit Genie is not liable for losses or damages arising from non-delivery, delayed delivery, or the erroneous delivery of any Alert, or inaccurate Alert content. You are responsible for your use or reliance on the contents of any Alert for any purposes. The information in any Alert may be subject to certain delays.

1.10 You Are Responsibile for Messaging Costs
Credit Genie MAY USE ANY MEANS OF COMMUNICATION DESCRIBED IN THIS SECTION EVEN IF YOU WILL INCUR COSTS TO RECEIVE SUCH PHONE MESSAGES, TEXT MESSAGES, E-MAILS OR OTHER MEANS. You are responsible for any and all charges, including but not limited to, fees associated with text messaging, imposed by your communications service provider. Please consult your mobile service carrier's pricing plan to determine the charges for sending and receiving text messages. These charges will appear on your phone bill. Message frequency depends on account status or settings. We may modify or terminate our text messaging services from time to time, for any reason, and without notice, including the right to terminate text messaging with or without notice, without liability to you.
2. CREDIT GENIE SMS TWO-FACTOR AUTHENTICATION PROGRAM
- 1. This program is for the sending of two-factor authentication short code messages.
- 2. You can cancel the SMS service at any time. Just text "STOP" to the short code. After you send the SMS message "STOP" to us, we will send you an SMS message to confirm that you have been unsubscribed. After this, you will no longer receive SMS messages from us. If you want to join again, just sign up as you did the first time and we will start sending SMS messages to you again.
- 3. Carriers are not liable for delayed or undelivered messages.
- 4. As always, message and data rates may apply for any messages sent to you from us and to us from you. You will receive one message per authentication attempt. If you have any questions about your text plan or data plan, it is best to contact your wireless provider.
3. COMMUNICATIONS IN WRITING
By accepting to this Agreement, you agree that electronic Communications shall be considered "in writing" and have the same meaning and effect as if provided in paper form, unless you have withdrawn your consent to receive Communications electronically as stated below. You agree that we have no obligation to provide you Communications in paper format, although we reserve the right to do so at any time.
4. WITHDRAWING CONSENT
You may withdraw your consent to receive Communications electronically by contacting us at email@example.com. If you withdraw your consent, we will close your Mobile App user account and, if applicable, end your subscription to the Personal Financial Management Services. The legal validity and enforceability of prior Communications delivered in electronic form will not be affected by your withdrawal of consent.
