The language of the privacy notices as proposed will not fit my small advisory firm. I do not collect credit information, nor do I share any personal information I may have of my clients other than with our custodians. We do not issue loans or credit cards, as banks do. Advisory Firms are very different than banks and other financial institutions, and these proposed rule changes will confuse and mislead our clients.
