Privacy


Several federal financial regulators jointly issue a guide to help consumers make informed decisions about choices they face as a result of the privacy provisions of the Graham-Leach-Bliley Act of 1999, which loosened restrictions on banks, insurers and other financial institutions’ sharing of marketing information about their customers. The guide, Privacy Choices for Your Personal Financial Information, is available online at www.consumer.gov . ( www.sec.gov/news/press/2002-21.txt )
