The Commissioner of Business Oversight (the "Commissioner") is authorized by the Financial Code to gather and maintain the information requested in the form you have accessed. If the form is submitted in connection with any application or other matter before the Commissioner, the requested information is deemed necessary to process that application or other matter pursuant to the Financial Code. If the requested information is not accurately and completely provided, the application may be denied, or the other matter may be resolved against your interests.

If the form requests you to provide your social security account number, please be advised that providing your social security account number is voluntary. Your social security account number will be used as an identifier, and may be used to verify information provided to the Department of Business Oversight (the "Department"). Failure to provide your social security number may require the Department to use other methods to verify information, which may cause delays in processing this information and any related application or other matter. If the information you have provided to the Department cannot be verified, the Department may reject your filing and deny any related application or cause any other matter to be resolved against your interests. In addition, the Commissioner may request additional information or clarification of submitted information.

You may be required to provide your fingerprints in conjunction with submitting your personal information. If your fingerprints are required, the Department will provide you with the necessary instructions and, if applicable, the forms upon which your fingerprints may be submitted.

In processing the information you provide, the Department may cause a consumer credit report to be prepared in accordance with the provisions of Title 1.6, Part 4, Division Third of the Civil Code (commencing at Section 1785.1), or an investigative consumer report to be prepared in accordance with the provisions of Title 1.6A, Part 4, Division Third of the Civil Code (commencing at Section 1786), or the respective successor statutes.

The information you provide the Department will be held in confidence as required by the Information Practices Act (Civil Code Section 1798, et seq.). The Information Practices Act provides that the Department may share the information you provide with the Department of Insurance, the Department of Business Oversight, other federal and state financial institution regulators, law enforcement agencies, or any other governmental entity if the disclosure is required under state or federal law. In addition, the Department may share the information you provide with any such agency if the disclosure assists the agency in discharging its duties.
