The federal financial services agencies are expected to shortly announce a proposed-final Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (“GLBA”) model form privacy notice. The model notice incorporates financial institutions’ required disclosures pursuant to Section 503 of the GLBA. Financial institutions that use the form to provide notice to consumers will be deemed in compliance with the privacy notice provisions of the GLBA. Once adopted and published in the Federal Register, the financial services agencies’ final model notice will take effect in 30 days.
The financial services agencies’ announcement of the final model privacy notice is anticipated in the near future although a draft of the final rule has been circulated. More information about the model notice is available here.
