  • 7. Financial Institution Users

    Boardvantage is not a financial institution and does not have consumer customer relationships as defined by the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (the "Act"). However, to the extent that Boardvantage acts as a service provider to a financial institution and such financial institution provides consumers' nonpublic personal information to Boardvantage, the Act requires that financial institutions must either make a full disclosure to customers or permit consumers to opt-out of such disclosure. If you are a user that is using the Service as an employee, officer, director or agent of a financial institution, you agree to comply with the Act and applicable regulations. Accordingly, if you disclose consumer information to Boardvantage in connection with your use of the Service, you will first ensure that the financial institution that you represent has provided notice of any such disclosure to the applicable consumers or an option to opt-out of such disclosure, in accordance with the Act and then obtain Boardvantage's consent to receipt of such information under the requirements of the Act. Any such consumer information that Boardvantage agrees to receive must be identified as consumer information, and Boardvantage will use such consumer information solely to perform services for the financial institution and will not use or disclose such information in a manner prohibited by the Act and applicable regulations.
