Beware the delightful new disclaimers

Here is the delightful new disclaimer I received by email for my Ebay credit card - I don't use the card anymore but you'll notice that the options for opting out are not nearly as convenient as my silent, but obviously very likely consent. I have noticed that more and more companies are sending out new little additions lately and while this one doesn't bug me too much (I never give them my cell number anyway), please remember to read these sweet little love letters from your bank and credit card companies. :)


The following provision is being added to your eBay MasterCard account agreement:

You agree that GE Money Bank and any other owner or servicer of your account may contact you about your account using any contact information or cell phone numbers you provide (whether previously provided or provided in the future).
You expressly agree to the use of any automatic telephone dialing system and/or artificial or prerecorded voice when contacting you, even if you are charged for the call under your phone plan.
The above provision will become part of your account agreement if you consent to the provision by (i) using your account more than 15 days after this notice is delivered to you or (ii) keeping your account open after March 15, 2009. If you do either of these things, we will conclude that you have consented to being contacted on your cell phone in this way. If you do not want to be contacted on your cell phone in this way, you may call us at 866-630-2763 at any time.
