Prohibition on Funding of Unlawful Internet Gambling
This document is published jointly by the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System (``Board'') and Departmental Offices, Department of the Treasury (``Treasury'') (collectively, the ``Agencies'') to extend the compliance date for the final regulation implementing applicable provisions of the Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act of 2006 (the ``Act'').\1\ The final regulation requires non-exempt participants in designated payment systems to establish and implement written policies and procedures that are reasonably designed to identify and block or otherwise prevent or prohibit unlawful Internet gambling transactions restricted by the Act. In extending the compliance date, the Agencies have consulted with the Department of Justice, as required by the Act.
Final Model Privacy Form Under the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act
The OCC, Board, FDIC, OTS, NCUA, FTC, CFTC, and SEC (the ``Agencies'') are publishing final amendments to their rules that implement the privacy provisions of Subtitle A of Title V of the Gramm- Leach-Bliley Act (``GLB Act''). These rules require financial institutions to provide initial and annual privacy notices to their customers. Pursuant to Section 728 of the Financial Services Regulatory Relief Act of 2006 (``Regulatory Relief Act'' or ``Act''), the Agencies are adopting a model privacy form that financial institutions may rely on as a safe harbor to provide disclosures under the privacy rules. In addition, the Agencies other than the SEC are eliminating the safe harbor permitted for notices based on the Sample Clauses currently contained in the privacy rules if the notice is provided after December 31, 2010. Similarly, the SEC is eliminating the guidance associated with the use of notices based on the Sample Clauses in its privacy rule if the notice is provided after December 31, 2010.
