For Banks: A Tool for Building Privacy Notices
This section of the site is designed for financial institutions themselves
, rather than consumers. Our online database leverages annual GLBA privacy notices we automatically collected and parsed, as described in the "About" section of this website
, as well as in greater detail in an academic paper
we wrote about our project.
We at Carnegie Mellon University's CUPS lab have also designed a free tool to help your institution prepare its privacy disclosure
! By answering the questions listed below, you will provide us enough information to automatically generate an HTML privacy notice for you following the guidelines of the model privacy notice
. After you answer the questions, you will be taken to a page consisting of your privacy notice. We format notices using HTML5 and CSS. The notice we generate is self-contained; the CSS (stylesheet) is embedded in the HTML file itself. You simply need to use your browser to "Save page as." This option is normally found in a browser's "File" menu. Please let us know
if you find our tool useful or have improvements to suggest. Note that this tool is still in beta testing; please report on any issues you find!
As you and your colleagues work to prepare the privacy notice for your institution, we also encourage you to reference the Federal Trade Commission's GLBA guidance pages
, particularly guidance related to compliance
, legal requirements
, and writing effective privacy notices
. In addition, the full full documentation of the model privacy form
Please answer the following questions so that we can generate a privacy notice for your institution.
This tool is currently under construction
. You can try it out now to see how it works, but there are still a few components missing. We'll take this notice down after everything is working and we have tested it.
