GLBA Permissible Use Descriptions

Federal law, in conjunction with your user agreement with LexisNexis®, requires you to have a permissible use in order to view personal information. The applicable laws governing these uses are the Drivers' Privacy Protection Act (DPPA) and related state laws and the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (GLBA). If you do not have a permissible use, you will not be given access to the personal information.

In addition to complying with these privacy acts, you should understand that, under the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) (15 U.S.C. sec 1681), the data provided to you by using the LexisNexis products may not be used as a factor in establishing a consumer's eligibility for credit, insurance, employment or other purposes by that act.


What is the "Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act" (GLBA)?

The Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act of 1999 (Financial Modernization Act of 1999) (15 U.S.C. 6801 to 6809) ("GLBA"), which became effective November 12, 1999, is a federal law enacted to govern the distribution and use of materials held by financial institutions containing consumers' personal financial information, in conjunction with any similar state laws that may be more restrictive than the GLBA.


If you select a GLBA permissible use, your search will run against data which is regulated by the GLBA and which is contained within the LexisNexis' ALLFND database.


If you select "I Do Not Have a Permissible Use," your search will run against data which is not regulated by the GLBA. All LexisNexis databases which contain non-public information that is individually identifying information are made available for lawful and appropriate uses only.
