FTC RIN: 3084-AB42 Publication ID: Fall 2016 
Title: Privacy of Consumer Financial Information 

The Privacy of Consumer Financial Information Rule (Privacy Rule or Rule), 16 CFR part 313, requires among other things that certain motor vehicle dealers provide an annual disclosure of their privacy policies to their customers by hand delivery, mail, electronic delivery, or through a Web site, but only with the consent of the consumer.


On June 24, 2015, the Commission proposed amending the Rule to allow motor vehicle dealers instead to notify their customers that a privacy policy is available on their Web site, under certain circumstances. 80 FR 36267. The proposed amendment would also revise the scope and definitions in the Rule in light of the transfer of part of the Commission's rulemaking authority to the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau in the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act. The comment period closed on August 31, 2015. Staff anticipates that the Commission will take its next action by April 2017.
