Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act

The U.S Congress enacts legislations that prohibits a financial institution from sharing "nonpublic personal information".

Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act is a Congressional Act that prohibits an institution that provides financial products or services from sharing a customer's "nonpublic personal information" with non-affiliated third parties unless the institution first discloses its privacy policy to consumers and allows them to 'opt out' of that disclosure.
