Privacy Choices for Your Personal Financial Information

Many companies you do business with are required to give you privacy notices that explain their information-sharing practices. In turn, you have the right to limit some — but not all — sharing of your information. The law balances your right to privacy with a company’s need to provide information for normal business purposes.

Privacy Notices 101

Privacy notices explain what personal financial information a company collects; whether the company intends to share your personal financial information with other companies; what you can do to limit some of that sharing; and how the company protects your personal financial information.

Companies involved in financial activities that must send their customers privacy notices include:

  • banks, savings and loans, and credit unions
  • insurance companies
  • securities and commodities brokerage firms
  • retailers that issue their own credit cards (like department stores or gas stations)
  • mortgage brokers; automobile dealerships that extend or arrange financing or leasing

Foundation helps teacher respond to Michigan Education Association lawsuit seeking collection of ‘back dues’ from her after she resigned her union membership

Ann Arbor, MI (April 24, 2020) – With free legal aid from the National Right to Work Legal Defense Foundation, Ann Arbor-area teacher Deborah Wolter is defending herself against Michigan Educators Association (MEA) union lawyers who filed a lawsuit claiming she owes thousands of dollars in back dues, despite the fact that the purportedly owed dues are for a period after she resigned her union membership. Under Michigan’s Right to Work law, nonmembers cannot be required to make any payments of union dues or fees.

As her response to the union lawsuit notes, Wolter does not owe MEA any dues because she resigned her union membership in August 2014. Because MEA’s demands for dues violate Michigan’s Right to Work law, Wolter’s attorneys are fighting to dismiss the union’s

“I haven’t been in one lawsuit in 31 years,” Scaramucci, also known as The Mooch, wrote in an email. “I don’t intend to have any now….”

“It’s absolutely not true,” said one person close to Skybridge. “The only lawsuit he’s ever been in is his divorce. Why would he sue anyone right now?”

Jesus, how did this guy ever get a job in the Trump administration in the first place? (Not for the lying, obviously, if he is in fact lying and not merely forgetful, but for never having used litigation as a weapon.)

Anyway, why is the Mooch denying both ever having sued and currently having plans to sue? Well, because that
