Academy Mortgage Terms of Service

Terms Of Use

YOUR USE OF THIS SERVICE AND YOUR TRANSACTIONS CONDUCTED WITH ACADEMY IN CONNECTION WITH THIS SERVICE ARE SUBJECT TO THE FOLLOWING TERMS AND CONDITIONS, ALSO REFERRED TO AS "TERMS OF USE". PLEASE READ THESE TERMS OF USE CAREFULLY, AND KEEP A COPY OF THEM FOR YOUR REFERENCE. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO THE TERMS OF USE, YOU MAY NOT USE THIS SERVICE.

ACADEMY LOAN CENTER

Academy Loan Center (the “Service”) is owned and operated by Academy Mortgage Corporation (“Academy”), which is also referred to below as "we," "us," or "our." The Service is a document management portal and includes features for uploading, downloading, and managing documents and information related to obtaining a mortgage. You agree to provide accurate, true, current, and complete information when making a loan inquiry, application, or in entering into any other transaction or request for information through this Service. The Service is not intended as a backup or storage system. You are responsible to maintain backup copies of all of your personal information, documents, and communications submitted to the Service.

This Service is a document management portal and is not intended for regular communication with your loan officer or other Academy representatives. Any sensitive or urgent communications (such as interest rate locks, cancellation of a closing, rescissions, or other similar messages) should be communicated (i.e. calling or emailing) with your loan officer or Academy representative directly. Academy cannot make any guarantee that any such communications received through the Service will be honored in a timely manner.

REASONABLE EFFORTS

While Academy will use all of its reasonable efforts to have your application fully processed and closed on or before any applicable rate lock expiration date (if any) and/or anticipated closing date, some processes are not under our control. For instance, Academy cannot be responsible for delays in loan approval or closing due to: the untimely receipt of an acceptable appraisal; the untimely receipt of required documentation; your existing home not selling; matters disclosed by a title commitment or survey; or any other matters beyond Academy’s reasonable control.

ACCESSING THE SERVICE AND E-CONSENT

YOUR USE OF THIS SERVICE IS SUBJECT TO YOUR APPROVAL OF ACADEMY’S E-CONSENT POLICY, WHICH WAS PROVIDED TO YOU SEPARATELY FROM THESE TERMS OF USE. IF YOU HAVE NOT RECEIVED THIS ACADEMY’S E-CONSENT NOTICE, PLEASE CONTACT YOUR LOAN OFFICER. BY USING THIS SERVICE, YOU ACKNOWLEDGE THAT YOU HAVE READ ACADEMY’S E-CONSENT POLICY AND HAVE CONSENTED TO RECEIVE ELECTRONIC COMMUNICATIONS BEFORE GAINING ACCESS TO THIS SERVICE, AND YOU AGREE THAT ALL AGREEMENTS, NOTICES, DISCLOSURES, AND OTHER COMMUNICATIONS THAT WE PROVIDE TO YOU ELECTRONICALLY THROUGH THIS SERVICE, SATISFY ANY LEGAL REQUIREMENT THAT SUCH COMMUNICATIONS BE IN WRITING. YOU MAY WITHDRAW YOUR CONSENT TO RECEIVE DISCLOSURES ELECTRONICALLY AT ANY TIME BY CONTACTING ACADEMY IN WRITING. HOWEVER, YOUR WITHDRAWAL OF CONSENT WILL ONLY APPLY TO DOCUMENTS AND COMMUNICATIONS THAT HAVE NOT YET OCCURRED OR BEEN DELIVERED.

In order to use the Service, you must have a valid account. You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your account and password and for restricting access to your computer. You agree to accept responsibility for all activities that occur through your account. You may not assign or otherwise transfer your account to any other person or entity. You acknowledge that Academy is not responsible for third party access to your account that results from theft or misappropriation of your account. You agree to immediately notify Academy of any unauthorized use of your account or any other breach of security, and ensure that you exit from your account at the end of each session. If your password is stolen or your account is otherwise compromised, you should immediately notify Academy and change your password. Academy cannot and will not be liable for any loss or damage arising from your failure to maintain the security of your account or password.

You further agree and acknowledge that you have the sole responsibility and liability for your use of this Service and for providing or obtaining, and for maintaining, all of the hardware, software, electrical power, telecommunications, Internet services, and other products or services (collectively, “Systems”) necessary or desirable for you to access and use this Service.
