Disclosure and Consent to use of Electronic Records and Signature

The School has implemented an Electronic Signature Program. Under this system, you will have the option to sign certain documents electronically. The documents executed electronically will be treated like a physical handwritten signature on a paper form. The law requires that we provide certain information to you and obtain your consent to use an electronic signature prior to your doing so. Please carefully read the following information. By electronically signing “The Consent to Use of Electronic Records and Signature”, you certify that you have read, understand, and agree to the terms of this Disclosure and Consent to Use of Electronic Signature.

  1. You may choose not to consent to use of an electronic signature. However, the School strongly urges you to consider the benefits of an electronic signature, including better data accuracy, a more green approach to paper management, and less of a burden for School faculty and staff.

  2. You have the right at any time to withdraw your consent to conduct transactions with the School by electronic means. If you wish to withdraw such consent, you must email June Walker, CFO at june.walker@ahschool.com. If you withdraw your consent, the School will mail you paper copies of the records, if any, that the School is required to make after the withdrawal of your consent; however, the withdrawal of your consent will not affect the legal validity or enforceability of any documents that you have previously signed electronically.

  3. You have the right to obtain a paper copy of an electronic record. If you wish to request a paper copy, please contact June Walker, CFO at june.walker@ahschool.com. The School’s fees for paper copies may change from time to time, and you may obtain information about such fees by contacting June Walker.

You also agree to conduct all transactions with the School by electronic means. You agree to receive electronic records of the terms of any forms, documents or contracts that the School elects to provide electronically (including, but not limited to, application, media releases, authorizations to release records, consents, waivers, and other forms), in lieu of a hard or paper copy thereof. Specifically, you consent to the use of electronic documents, email delivery of documents, and electronic signatures in any communication or agreement involving you, your child(ren), and the School.

  5. In order to access and retain the electronic records, you must have: a computer or other device capable of accessing the Internet, an Internet Web Browser, an active email account, and a PDF reader capable of viewing and printing the document, such as Adobe Reader. By providing your consent, you are confirming that you have the hardware and software described above, and that you are able to receive and view the electronic records.

  6. You agree and consent that your use of a keypad, mouse or other device to select an item, button, icon, checkbox, to enter text, or to perform a similar act/action, (e.g., by clicking on “Submit”) constitutes your electronic signature and signifies your intent to be bound. You understand that your electronic signature is legally binding, just as if you manually signed a paper document in ink.

 

Use of Shopify Platform

The School has implemented the ability to transact business and make payments online through a third-party application (the “Shopify Platform”) for your convenience. By use of the Shopify Platform, you agree to release and hold the Released Parties harmless from and against any data breach which may occur in connection with credit card or other data on such platform.  If you are not comfortable with, or do not trust, the Shopify Platform, you should handle your enrollment and payment functions offline directly with the School’s office personnel.
