In consideration of your use of the Website, you agree to provide true, accurate and complete information about yourself as prompted by the Website registration or donation process.  Unless you elect to opt out in accordance with the Privacy Policy for this Website, you also agree that GTB may send you notices, announcements, offers and alerts regarding GTB owned, operated or affiliated sites and services.  In addition, you agree to update that information in order to maintain its truth, accuracy and completeness.  GTB may deny you access to the Website in the event that your information is untrue, inaccurate or incomplete.  We are entitled to rely upon the latest information provided by you when providing any notices to you under these Terms of Use.  

2. AGREEMENT TO DEAL ELECTRONICALLY
All transactions with or through the Website or GTB may, at the option of GTB, be conducted electronically.  GTB may keep records of any type of communication conducted via the Website.  All electronic records are deemed sent when they are properly addressed to the recipient and the record enters an information processing system outside the control of the sender or the record enters a region of an information processing system under the recipient's control.  All electronic records are received when the record enters an information processing system that the recipient has designated or uses for the purpose of receiving electronic records or information of the type sent, in a form capable of being processed by that system, and from which the recipient is able to retrieve the electronic record.
