Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act

The Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act requires financial institutions – companies that offer consumers financial products or services like loans, financial or investment advice, or insurance – to explain their information-sharing practices to their customers and to safeguard sensitive data.


Under the Safeguards Rule, financial institutions must protect the consumer information they collect. Learn if your business is a “financial institution” under the Rule. If so, have you taken the necessary steps to comply?

Auto dealers that extend credit, arrange financing or leasing, or give financial advice must notify customers about the information they collect, who they share it with, and how they protect it. Are you following the rules of the road?

Financial institutions covered by the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act must tell their customers about their information-sharing practices and explain to customers their right to "opt out" if they don't want their information shared with certain third parties. Is your company following the requirements of the Privacy Rule?
