Additional Consumer Information on Privacy

The Federal Reserve has released a new publication for consumers, Privacy Choices for Your Personal Financial Information. This guide provides information about the choices consumers face as a result of the privacy provisions of the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act of 1999 and helps consumers make informed choices about whether to allow their personal financial information to be shared with other organizations.

Financial institution staff who answer consumer questions about the privacy notices might find this guidance helpful. The brochure can be downloaded in PDF format from the Board of Governor's website External Link.
