IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT PROCEDURES FOR OPENING A NEW ACCOUNT
To help the government fight the funding of terrorism and money laundering activities, Federal law requires all financial institutions to obtain, verify, and record information that identifies each person who opens an account. What this means for you: When you open an account, we will ask for your name, address, date of birth, and other information that will allow us to identify you. We may also ask to see your driver's license or other identifying documents.
California Residents: An applicant, if married, may apply for a separate account.
New Hampshire Residents: If this is an application for balloon financing, upon request and before entering into the balloon payment contract, you are entitled to receive, upon request, a written estimate of the monthly payment amount that would be required to refinance the balloon payment at the time such balloon payment is due based on the creditor's current refinancing programs. A balloon contract is an installment sale contract with a scheduled final payment that is at least twice the amount of the one of the earlier scheduled equal periodic installment payments.
New York Residents: In connection with your application for credit, we may request a consumer report from a consumer reporting agency (credit bureau), which contains information on your credit worthiness, credit standing, personal characteristics and general reputation. If we grant you credit, we or the person(s) extending credit or holding such credit account may order additional consumer reports in connection with any update, renewal or extension of the credit. If you ask, you will be told whether we requested a consumer report and if we did, we will tell you the name and address of the consumer reporting agency that gave us the report.
Ohio Residents: Ohio laws against discrimination require that all creditors make credit equality available to all creditworthy customers and that credit reporting agencies maintain separate credit histories on each individual upon request. The Ohio Civil Rights Commission administers compliance with this law.

If your application is approved and the credit is granted, you also authorize the parties granting credit and/or holding your account and their respective employees and agents, to obtain additional credit reports and other information about you in connection with reviewing the account, increasing the available credit on the account (if applicable), taking collection on the account, or for any other legitimate purpose.
Married Wisconsin Residents: Wisconsin law provides that no provision of any marital property agreement, or unilateral statement, or court order applied to marital property will adversely affect a creditor's interests unless, prior to the time that the credit is granted, the creditor is furnished with a copy of the agreement, statement or decree, or has actual knowledge of the adverse provision. If you are making this application individually, and not jointly with your spouse, the full name and current address of your spouse must be properly disclosed in the co-applicant section of this application.
