    Explanation
    The GLBA, also known as the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act, is a law that includes provisions to protect consumers' personal financial information held by financial institutions. This means that the act aims to safeguard sensitive data such as account numbers, social security numbers, and other personal information that individuals provide to financial institutions.

      False

    Correct Answer

    Explanation
    A customer must receive a privacy notice at the time of establishing a customer relationship with a consumer, as well as no less than once annually.

      The Federal functional regulators, the State insurance authorities, and the Trade Commission.

    • D.

      None of the above.

    Correct Answer
    B. The Federal functional regulators, the State insurance authorities, and the Trade Commission.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is the Federal functional regulators, the State insurance authorities, and the Trade Commission. These entities are responsible for enforcing the subchapters and regulations of the GLBA. The Fair Debt Collections Practices Act is a separate law that governs debt collection practices and is not related to the GLBA. Consumer lending institutions may be subject to the GLBA, but they are not the primary enforcers of the law. Therefore, the correct answer is the Federal functional regulators, the State insurance authorities, and the Trade Commission.

    The disclosure of the privacy policy must be:

    • A.

      Provided to consumers in writing or electronic form.

    • B.

      Posted on the wall at the financial institution.

    • C.

      Verbally given to the consumer or customer.

    • D.

      Given to consumer or customer upon request.

    Correct Answer
    A. Provided to consumers in writing or electronic form.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Provided to consumers in writing or electronic form." This means that the privacy policy should be given to consumers either in a physical written document or in an electronic format such as through email or on a website. It should be accessible and easily available to consumers so that they can review and understand the privacy practices of the financial institution. Posting it on the wall or verbally giving it to the consumer may not be sufficient as it may not be easily accessible or may not provide a permanent record for the consumer.
