Background: On November 12, 1999, President Clinton signed the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act into law. Subtitle A of Title V of the act, captioned “Disclosure of Nonpublic Personal Information” (“Title V”) limits the instances in which a financial institution may disclose nonpublic personal information about a consumer to nonaffiliated third parties, and requires a financial institution to disclose to all of its customers the institution’s privacy policies and practices with respect to information sharing with both affiliates and nonaffiliated third parties. Text of the entire document can be read at the http://www.sec.gov/ web site (Regulation S-P, 59 pages).
