NOTICE TO USERS OF CONSUMER REPORTS: OBLIGATIONS OF USERS UNDER THE FCRA
The Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA), 15 U.S.C. 1681-1681y, requires that this notice be provided to inform users of consumer reports of their legal obligations. State law may impose additional requirements. The text of the FCRA is set forth in full at the Federal Trade Commission’s Website at www.ftc.gov/credit. User duties are also available at the Commission’s Web site. Users must consult the relevant provisions of the FCRA for details about their obligations under the FCRA. Failure to comply with the FCRA can result in state government or federal government enforcement actions, as well as private lawsuits. (Sections 616, 617, and 621) In addition, any person who knowingly and willfully obtains a consumer report under false pretenses may face criminal prosecution. (Section 619) All users of consumer reports should become familiar with the law and may want to consult with their counsel to ensure that they are in compliance.

NOTICES TO FURNISHERS OF INFORMATION: OBLIGATIONS OF FURNISHERS UNDER THE FCRA
The federal Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA), as amended, imposes responsibilities on all persons who furnish information to consumer reporting agencies (CRAs). These responsibilities are found in Section 623 of the FCRA. State law may impose additional requirements. All furnishers of information to CRAs should become familiar with the law and may want to consult with their counsel to ensure that they are in compliance. The FCRA, 15 U.S.C. 1681-1681u, is set forth in full at the Federal Trade Commission’s Internet web site (http://www.ftc.gov). The text of the FCRA is set forth in full at the Federal Trade Commission’s Website at www.ftc.gov/credit.

NOTICE TO USERS OF CONSUMER INFORMATION: THE GRAMM-LEACH-BLILEY ACT
Protecting the privacy of consumer information held by “financial institutions” is at the heart of the financial privacy provisions of the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Financial Modernization Act of 1999. The GLB Act requires companies to give consumers privacy notices that explain the institutions’ information-sharing practices. In turn, consumers have the right to limit some – but not all – sharing of their information. The FTC is one of eight federal regulatory agencies that has the authority to enforce the financial privacy law, along with the state insurance authorities. The federal banking agencies, the Securities and Exchange Commission and the Commodity Futures Trading Commission have jurisdiction over banks, thrifts, credit unions, brokerage firms and commodity traders. The FTC has additional details on the GLB Act, the Commission’s Privacy Rule and a compliance guide for small business owners at www.ftc.gov/privacy. All users of consumer reports should become familiar with the law and may want to consult with their counsel to ensure that they are in compliance.
