Providing Us With Linked Account Information

You agree that you control and limit access to the email account and mobile device. If your e-mail address or your mobile device changes, you are responsible for informing us of that change. Changes to your e-mail address or mobile number will apply to all of your alerts.
Because alerts are not encrypted, we will never include your account number. However, alerts may include your ALPHA Login ID and some information about your accounts. Depending upon which alerts you select, information such as an account balance or the date of your next scheduled payment may be included. Anyone with access to your e-mail or mobile device will be able to view the content of these alerts. At any time you may disable future alerts (other than automatic alerts).

These Terms and Conditions and any dispute thereunder will be governed by Delaware state law and/or applicable federal law (including the Federal Arbitration Act) as applied to agreements entered into and to be performed in the State of Delaware, without regard to its choice of law or conflicts of law principles that would require application of law of a different jurisdiction.

By logging on to www.alpha.money and agreeing to the E-SIGN Agreement, you are agreeing to the following. Please read the information below and in the E-SIGN Agreement carefully and thoroughly.
We may provide these Terms and Conditions and any amendments or revisions thereto to you in electronic form.

These minimum requirements are subject to change.
Non-use of periodic statements
You may obtain information about the amount of money you have remaining in your account by calling the support line listed on www.alpha.money. This information, along with a 12-month history of account transactions, is also on the ALPHA app. You also have the right to obtain at least 24 months of written history of account transactions by calling support or by contacting us at email@example.com. You will not be charged a fee for this information unless you request it more than once per month.
In case of errors or questions about your account, call or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as you can, if you think an error has occurred in your account. We must allow you to report an error until 60 days after the earlier of the date you electronically access your account, if the error could be viewed in your electronic history, or the date we sent the FIRST written history on which the error appeared. You may request a written history of your transactions at any time by calling us or email us at email@example.com. You will need to:
If you tell us orally, we may require that you send us your complaint or question in writing within 10 business days. We will determine whether an error occurred within 10 business days after we hear from you and will correct any error promptly. If we need more time, however, we may take up to 45 days to investigate your complaint or question. If we decide to do this, we will credit your account within 10 business days for the amount you think is in error, so that you will have the money during the time it takes us to complete our investigation. If we ask you to put your complaint or question in writing and we do not receive it within 10 business days, we may not credit your account. For errors involving new accounts, point-of-sale, or foreign-initiated transactions, we may take up to 90 days to investigate your complaint or question. For new accounts, we may take up to 20 business days to credit your account for the amount you think is in error. We will tell you the results within three business days after completing our investigation. If we decide that there was no error, we will send you a written explanation, remove the provisional credit applied to your Card and you will be liable for that amount. You may ask for copies of the documents that we used in our investigation. If you need more information about our error-resolution procedures, call us at the telephone number listed on the website.
Please note that certain types of disputes are not subject to the same conditions above and therefore may not be eligible for provisional credit within 10 business days.
