Prohibits a financial institution, except in certain circumstances, from discriminating against a consumer or denying an otherwise qualified consumer a financial product or service, or from offering a financial product or service on less favorable terms and conditions, because the consumer has not provided the express consent.
Prescribes the obligations of a financial institution regarding disclosure of a consumer's personal information to affiliates.
Directs the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System and the Bureau of Consumer Financial Protection to develop a model disclosure form, meeting specified requirements, for financial institutions to use when seeking a consumer's consent to disclose nonpublic personal information.
