This privacy notice has been prepared in accordance with federal law. Certain states have adopted a requirement that financial institutions obtain clients’ affirmative consent to share their personal information with non-affiliates who are not servicing your account.

To the extent these state laws apply, we will comply with them with regard to our information disclosure practices.

Current State Laws and Legislative Activity. Since enactment of GLBA, there has been considerable activity in state legislatures on financial privacy issues, particularly in terms of making reference to the changes wrought by GLBA. Some states have laws that are more protective of consumer privacy. For example, at least four states, Alaska, Connecticut, North Dakota, and Vermont, have current laws that would require an opt-in or in some way hamper the sharing of customer information among affiliates. None of these would, of course, operate to override the FCRA authorization of interaffiliate information sharing without further legislative action. In other states, since GLBA, there have been provisions enacted modifying stringent financial privacy laws to accommodate GLBA. In the only state holding a referendum on such a statute, North Dakota, the voters by a 73% majority, voted to repeal the new law. In the 2003 legislative session, the legislatures of at least two states, California and New Jersey, are considering enacting laws that would appear to be directed at limiting the ability of financial institutions to share customer information should the FCRA preemption provision not be renewed. Another, New York, is considering legislation to require affirmative consent for disclosing nonpublic personal information to nonaffiliated third parties.
Certain states have adopted a requirement for you to approve the sharing of information in advance, otherwise known as an “opt-in” choice. If you live in an “opt-in” state (e.g., California, Massachusetts, Maine, Alaska, North Dakota or Vermont), then we will require your consent to share your information with unaffiliated third parties who are not servicing your account. State requirements vary and may change without notice.
