Conducting Business Electronically
This notice contains important information regarding your transaction of business with us electronically. Please read this notice carefully and print and/or download a copy for your files.
Federal law, and state law as applicable, treats electronic signatures as having the same legal force and effect as if they were signed on paper by hand. Therefore, online contracts have the same legal force as signing an equivalent paper contract in ink. Please note, to apply for products and services online, the applicant will be required to utilize an electronic signature.
Below is information regarding Records received, signed and/or delivered electronically by or with American Republic Insurance Company or American Republic Corp Insurance Company (" the Companies.") Records include, but are not limited to, applications, notices, disclosures, and authorizations.
