Our Privacy Policy conforms to the final privacy rule published by the Federal Trade Commission (FTC), as required by Section 504(a) of the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (the GLB Act), with respect to financial institutions and other persons under the FTC’s jurisdiction. Under provisions of the GLB Act, MPCC as a provider of financial services which include student loans and collection agency services is required to disclose to all of its customers its privacy policies and practices with respect to information sharing with both affiliates and nonaffiliated third parties.
