How You Can Protect Yourself
Beware Fraudulent E-Mails and Websites
“Phishing” is a rampant Internet scam that relies on “spoofed” e-mails, purportedly from well known firms, to lure individuals to fraudulent websites that look and feel like the well known firm’s website. At such websites, victims are asked to provide personal information about themselves, such as their name, address and credit card number. These fraudulent e-mails and websites may also try to install malicious software on your computer that monitors your activities and sends sensitive personal information (your passwords, for example) to a remote location. With that information, criminals can commit identity theft, credit card fraud and other crimes.
You can protect yourself by following these best practices when using the Internet:
- Be aware that e-mail is insecure and easy to forge. E-mail that appears to be from a friend or company you do business with may be fraudulent and designed to trick you into providing personal information about yourself or installing dangerous software.
- Do not respond to e-mails or pop-up messages that solicit your personal information: name, address, Social Security number, etc.
- Only access trusted websites that you found other than by clicking on a website address in an e-mail and then added to your browser’s bookmarks. Otherwise, manually type the address into your browser and then bookmark it. When you receive an e-mail, rather than clicking on a website address in the e-mail, which can bring you to a fraudulent website, use the bookmark to access that website.
If you receive an e-mail from Genesis Capital you are uncertain about, or which you believe to be fraudulent, please forward it to firstname.lastname@example.org. If you are a client of the firm, please notify your sales representative as well.
Personal Computer Security Tips
No security practice is foolproof. You can, however, help protect yourself by following these best practices to secure your personal computer:
- Install antivirus and anti-spyware software on your computer and make sure it is up to date with the most recent virus/spyware signatures.
- Make sure your computer is up to date with the most recent software patches. Patches are software updates that often address software vulnerabilities that phishing scams and viruses exploit.
- Install a firewall between your computer and the Internet. A firewall is software or hardware that acts as a buffer between your computer and the Internet that limits access to your computer and blocks communications from unauthorized sources.
Please contact the manufacturer of your computer for additional information and recommendations.
Glossary of Terms
- Phishing: Phishing attacks use ”spoofed” e-mails and fraudulent websites designed to fool recipients into divulging personal financial data such as credit card numbers, account usernames and passwords, Social Security numbers, etc. By hijacking the trusted brands of well-known banks, online retailers and credit card companies, phishers are able to convince up to 5% of recipients to respond to them.
- Firewall: A system designed to prevent unauthorized access to or from a private network. Firewalls can be implemented in both hardware and software, or a combination of both. Firewalls are frequently used to prevent unauthorized Internet users from accessing private networks connected to the Internet, especially intranets. All messages entering or leaving the intranet pass through the firewall, which examines each message and blocks those that do not meet the specified security criteria.
- Patch: Also called a service patch, a fix to a program bug. A patch is an actual piece of object code that is inserted into (patched into) an executable program. Patches typically are available as downloads over the Internet.
- Computer Virus: A program or piece of code that is loaded onto your computer without your knowledge and runs against your wishes. Viruses can also replicate themselves. All computer viruses are manmade. A simple virus that can make a copy of itself over and over again is relatively easy to produce. Even such a simple virus is dangerous because it will quickly use all available memory and bring the system to a halt. An even more dangerous type of virus is one capable of transmitting itself across networks and bypassing security systems.
- Antivirus Software: A utility that searches a hard disk for viruses and removes any that are found. Most antivirus programs include an auto-update feature that enables the program to download profiles of new viruses so that it can check for the new viruses as soon as they are discovered.
- URL:Abbreviation of Uniform Resource Locator, the global address of documents and other resources on the World Wide Web.
- Spoof: To fool. In networking, the term is used to describe a variety of ways in which hardware and software can be fooled. IP spoofing, for example, involves trickery that makes a message appear as if it came from an authorized IP address (the numerical identifier for a computer).
AGREEMENT AND CONSENT TO CONDUCT TRANSACTIONS ELECTRONICALLY
As part of your relationship with Genesis Capital, LLC and/or Goldman Sachs Bank U.S.A. and each of the foregoing’s respective affiliates (collectively, “we”, “us”, or the “Company”), we want to ensure you have all of the information you need to effectively transact business with us. If you choose to apply for a loan through us, we are required by law to give you certain information “in writing” – which means you are entitled to receive it on paper. We may instead provide this information to you electronically, with your prior consent or agreement. We also need your general agreement to use electronic records and signatures in our relationship with you. So, before you transact business with us electronically, you must review and consent to the terms of this Agreement. We will use the DocuSign, Inc. (“DocuSign”) electronic signing system to deliver communications and obtain your signature on documents electronically.
Please read the information below carefully before giving your consent to conduct transactions with us electronically. A copy of the most updated Agreement and Consent to Conduct Transaction Electronically and related disclosures is available for review on the Company’s website at https://www.genesiscapital.com/terms/.
Your Consent to Use Electronic Communications and Signatures
If you consent to the terms and procedures described in this Agreement, in our sole discretion we may provide to you electronically all notices, disclosures, authorizations, acknowledgements, and other documents that we are required by law or regulation to deliver to you in writing, or that we choose to send to you (“Communications”). We may also use electronic signatures and obtain them from you as part of our transactions with you. The term “transaction” means an action or set of actions relating to the conduct of business between you and us, including the financing, sale, lease, exchange, licensing, or other disposition of (i) any interest in real property, (ii) any interest in personal property, including fixtures, goods and intangibles, (iii) services, and (iv) any combination thereof.
We will refer to the Communications we provide to you, or that you sign or agree to at our request, in electronic form as “Electronic Records”. We may always, in our sole discretion, provide you with any Communication in writing, even if you have chosen to receive it electronically.
Sometimes the law, or our agreement with you, requires you to give us a written notice. You must still provide these notices to us on paper, unless we specifically tell you in another Communication how you may deliver that notice to us electronically.
Your consent will cover all Communications with the Company. Your consent will remain in effect until you give us notice that you are withdrawing it.
What are the Consequences if You do not Agree to Use Electronic Records?
If you do not want to use Electronic Records, it will slow the speed at which we can complete certain steps in transactions with you, and the speed at which we can deliver our services to you. This is because we will need first to send the required Communications to you in paper format, and in some instances, we must wait until we receive your acknowledgment of your receipt of the paper Communications. It also means we must coordinate with you the signing of certain Communications and loan documents.
How to Obtain Paper Copies of Electronic Records.
When you consent to the use of Electronic Records, we will generally not send you paper copies of the Electronic Records. However, you may obtain a paper copy by downloading and printing the Electronic Record:
- during and immediately after the signing session, and
- if you elect to create a DocuSign signer account, you may access an Electronic Record for a limited period of time (usually 30 days) after the Electronic Record is first sent to you.
You may also ask us to send you paper copies of Electronic Records by sending us an e-mail to email@example.com and in the body of the request you must state your e-mail address, full name, US Postal address, telephone number, and the Communication(s) you would like us to provide in paper form. You may also request paper copies by mail:
Vice President – Documents and Quality Control
15303 Ventura Blvd., Suite 700
Sherman Oaks, CA 91403
We will not charge you any fee for requesting paper copies.
Withdrawing Your Consent
If you initially decide to receive Communications from us electronically, you may change your mind at any time by informing us that you want to receive required Communications in the future only in paper format. We will not charge you any fees if you withdraw your consent. Your withdrawal of consent will become effective after we have had a reasonable opportunity to act upon it.
To inform us that you no longer want to use Electronic Records, you may:
- decline to sign a document during your DocuSign session, and on the subsequent page, select the check-box indicating you wish to withdraw your consent, or you may;
- send us an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org and in the body of that request you must state your e-mail address, full name, US Postal Address, and telephone number. We do not need any other information for you to withdraw your consent; or
iii. send us a letter that states your e-mail address, full name, US Postal Address, and telephone number to:
Vice President – Documents and Quality Control
15303 Ventura Blvd., Suite 700
Sherman Oaks, CA 91403
You Must Keep Your Email Address Current with Us:
You must designate an existing email address as the e-mail address of record. That e-mail address will be the only e-mail address to which we will send electronic Communications. If you change your e-mail address, you must provide your new e-mail address to us by contacting us as described in the section below captioned “How to Advise Us of Your New E-mail Address.”
How to Advise Us of Your New E-mail Address
It is your responsibility to maintain a current and active email address and notify the Company of any changes to it. To let us know of a change in your e-mail address where we send electronic Communications, you must send an email message to us from your current address of record at email@example.com and in the body of that request you must state: your previous e-mail address, and your new e-mail address. We do not require any other information from you to change your email address.
In addition, you must notify DocuSign, Inc. to arrange for your new email address to be reflected in your DocuSign account by following the process for changing e-mail in the DocuSign system found here: https://support.docusign.com/guides/ndse-user-guide-change-your-email-address.
To Receive Electronic Records, You Must Have Access to the Following Hardware and Software:
You Must Acknowledge Your Access and Consent to Receive Communications Electronically – Your Electronic Signature is Legally Binding
** These minimum requirements are subject to change. A copy of the most updated Agreement and Consent to Conduct Transaction Electronically and related disclosures is available for review on the Company’s website at https://www.genesiscapital.com/terms/. Continuing to use our electronic services after the change is reaffirmation of your consent. Pre-release (e.g. beta) versions of operating systems and browsers are not supported.
The format is similar to other Communications that we will deliver to you. To confirm to us that you can access this Agreement electronically, please verify by checking the “I agree” box below that you are able to read this Agreement and that you also are able to print on paper or electronically save this Agreement for your future reference and access, or that you are able to e-mail this Agreement to an address where you will be able to print on paper or save it for your future reference and access. Further, if you consent to the use of Electronic Records on the terms and conditions described above, please let us know by clicking the ‘I agree’ button below.
Also by checking the “I agree” box below, you agree that your electronic signature is the legally binding equivalent of your manual signature on documents and that all such documents are legally enforceable against you. You further agree that you will not, at any time in the future, repudiate the meaning of your electronic signature or claim that your electronic signature is not legally binding.
By checking the ‘I agree’ box, I confirm and agree that:
I can access and read this ELECTRONIC AGREEMENT AND CONSENT TO CONDUCT TRANSACTIONS ELECTRONICALLY and agree to its terms and conditions, I have the hardware and software described above, I am able to receive and review Electronic Records, and I have an active email account.
