Download as PDF 56772 Federal Register / Vol. 78, No. 178 / Friday, September 13, 2013 / Notices tkelley on DSK3SPTVN1PROD with NOTICES Affected Public: Businesses or other for-profit. Estimated Number of Respondents: 166,444. Total Annual Burden: 17,189 hours. Description: Section 214 of the FACT Act,1 which added section 624 to the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA),2 generally prohibits a person from using certain information received from an affiliate to make a solicitation for marketing purposes to the consumer, unless the consumer is given notice and an opportunity and simple method to opt out of making such solicitations. Section 214 also requires the Agencies,3 the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), and the Federal Trade Commission (FTC), in consultation and coordination with each other, to issue regulations implementing section 214 that, to the extent possible, are consistent and comparable. Administration of these regulations, which were codified by the OCC at 12 CFR 41.20–41.28 and that have not changed since they were last cleared by OMB under the PRA, has been transferred to the Bureau of Consumer Financial Protection (CFPB) and are now found at 12 CFR 1022.20–1022.27. Title X of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act,4 (Dodd-Frank Act) transferred the regulations and the CFPB republished them (76 FR 79308 (December 21, 2011)). The burden estimates have been revised to remove the burden attributable to OCC-regulated institutions with over $10 billion in total assets, now carried by CFPB pursuant to section 1025 of the DoddFrank Act. The OCC retains enforcement authority and carries burden for those institutions under its supervision with total assets of $10 billion or less. Financial institutions use the required notices to inform consumers about their rights under section 214 of the FACT Act. Consumers use the notices to decide if they want to receive solicitations for marketing purposes or opt out. Financial institutions use the consumers’ opt out responses to determine the permissibility of making a solicitation for marketing purposes to consumers. If a person receives certain consumer eligibility information from an affiliate, the person may not use that information 1 Fair and Accurate Credit Transactions Act of 2003, Public Law 108–159, 117 Stat. 1952 (December 4, 2003). 2 15 U.S.C. 1681 et seq. 3 OCC, Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System, and the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation. 4 Public Law 111–203, 124 Stat. 1955, July 21, 2010. VerDate Mar<15>2010 18:23 Sep 12, 2013 Jkt 229001 to make solicitations to the consumer about its products or services, unless the consumer is given notice and a simple method to opt out of such use of the information, and the consumer does not opt out. Exceptions include, a person using eligibility information: (1) To make solicitations to a consumer with whom the person has a pre-existing business relationship; (2) to perform services for another affiliate subject to certain conditions; (3) in response to a communication initiated by the consumer; or (4) to make a solicitation that has been authorized or requested by the consumer. A consumer’s affiliate marketing opt-out election must be effective for a period of at least five years. Upon expiration of the opt-out period, the consumer must be given a renewal notice and an opportunity to renew the opt-out before information received from an affiliate may be used to make solicitations to the consumer. Comments: Comments submitted in response to this notice will be summarized and included in the request for OMB approval. All comments will become a matter of public record. Comments are invited on: (a) Whether the collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the OCC, including whether the information has practical utility; (b) The accuracy of the OCC’s estimate of the information collection burden; (c) Ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; (d) Ways to minimize the burden of the collection on respondents, including through the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology; and (e) Estimates of capital or start-up costs and costs of operation, maintenance, and purchase of services to provide information.
