The language of GLB can be construed to define an information broker as
“financial institution” because of the activities in which it engages.
our company might have an obligation to protect what is termed
identifiable financial information” under the Act.
However, §502(e) of GLB states exceptions to personal financial
disclosure restrictions, among them,
8) to comply with Federal, State, or local laws, rules, and other
legal requirements; to comply with a properly authorized civil,
regulatory investigation or subpoena or summons by Federal, State, or
authorities; or to respond to judicial process or government regulatory
authorities having jurisdiction over the financial institution for
compliance, or other purposes as authorized by law.
In addition §506(c) of GLB states:
RELATION TO OTHER PROVISIONS- Except for the amendments made by
and (b), nothing in this title shall be construed to modify, limit, or
supersede the operation of the Fair Credit Reporting Act, and no
shall be drawn on the basis of the provisions of this title regarding
information is transaction or experience information under section 603
Taken together, both sections appear to exempt personal financial
disclosure restrictions for collection matters, judgments, child
well as other FCRA permissible purposes. For matrimonial cases, a
signed authorization will now be required in order to search for any
held assets. For estate matters, a similar authorization by an executor
required. You may submit these authorizations in a separate plain
document along with your order or you may have the applicable party
revised Search Request Form™ where indicated. Please login with your
