Financial companies may share information for many reasons such as offering more services, and introducing new services or products. They also share information to profit from your information.  If you prefer to limit the information you receive, or prevent marketers or others from obtaining your personal financial information, you should take some important steps.

It is important to read the privacy notices you receive from financial companies.  The notices explain how these companies handle and share your personal financial information.  Keep in mind that not all notices will contain the same information.  If you have additional questions about how your financial company handles your information, you should visit the company’s website or contact the company directly.

The federal agencies in the links provided below cover various topics related to privacy choices and explain steps you should take to help protect the privacy of your personal financial information.
