The opt out requirements in § § 146a.14 and 146a.21 (relating to form of opt out notice to consumers and opt out methods; and limitation on disclosure of nonpublic personal financial information to nonaffiliated third parties) do not apply when a licensee provides nonpublic personal financial information to a nonaffiliated third party to perform services for the licensee or functions on the licensees behalf, if the licensee meets both of the following conditions:
(i) Provides the initial notice in accordance with § 146a.11 (relating to initial privacy notice to consumers required).
(ii) Enters into a contractual agreement with the nonaffiliated third party that prohibits the nonaffiliated third party from disclosing or using the information other than to carry out the purposes for which the licensee disclosed the information, including use under an exception in § 146a.32 or § 146a.33 (relating to exceptions to notice and opt out requirements for disclosure of nonpublic personal financial information for processing and servicing transactions; and other exceptions to notice and opt out requirements for disclosure of nonpublic personal financial information) in the ordinary course of business to carry out those purposes.
(2) Example. If a licensee discloses nonpublic personal financial information under this section to a financial institution with which the licensee performs joint marketing, the licensees contractual agreement with that institution meets the requirements of paragraph (1) if it prohibits the institution from disclosing or using the nonpublic personal financial information except as necessary to carry out the joint marketing or under an exception in § 146a.32 or § 146a.33 in the ordinary course of business to carry out that joint marketing.
(b) Service may include joint marketing. The services a nonaffiliated third party performs for a licensee under subsection (a) may include marketing of the licensees own products or services or marketing of financial products or services offered under joint agreements between the licensee and one or more financial institutions.
(c) Definition of joint agreement. For purposes of this section, joint agreement means a written contract under which a licensee and one or more financial institutions jointly offer, endorse or sponsor a financial product or service.
