General Reserve Bank Data Privacy Notice

Introduction and Scope

本数据隐私声明提供了联邦储备银行(Reserve Bank)活动的高层次概述, or partially rely on collection and 使用 of personal information. We seek to provide transparency into relevant Reserve Bank functions, the personal information involved, and general 使用s of such information.

本公告涵盖了在多个储备银行之间和内部进行的一般类别的活动和职能, each Reserve Bank is a separate legal entity responsible for its own privacy practices. 由于储备银行的一些职能在操作上已被合并为一个或多个储备银行, 无论某一职能是否主要由某一特定储备银行执行,各储备银行均发布本公告的类似版本. 储备银行也可以发布单独的隐私声明,提供有关该储备银行数据隐私实践的更具体信息.

When we 使用 the term personal information in this 不ice, 我们指的是由储备银行处理或保留的与个人有关联或可关联的个人信息. 本通知涵盖从个人信息所涉及的个人以外的来源收到个人信息的情况. 它还涵盖个人为储备银行安全或执法目的提供个人信息的情况.

This 不ice is intended to cover situations

  1. that are generally covered by more specific 不ices posted at the point of collection, such as collecting personal information directly from members of the public on the web (e.g., signing up for newsletters);
  2. where the Reserve Banks collect or 使用 personal information for routine internal functions, such as managing employees, administering benefit plans, and performing audits and accounting; or
  3. that involve operation of Reserve Bank websites (e.g., cookie policies).

Reserve Bank Functions That Use Personal Information

本通知描述了储备银行在上述范围内涉及个人信息的六项核心职能. Regardless of functional area, the Reserve Banks DO NOT 出售 personal information. The Reserve Banks DO share personal information if required by law, or if such 分享 is necessary to accomplish the listed functions and activities. 这包括在储备银行之间以及与储备银行供应商(如果该供应商需要向储备银行提供服务)之间共享信息。.

1. Supervision & Regulation

联邦储备系统理事会(Board of Governors of Federal Reserve System)是一个联邦机构,负责监督和管理包括银行控股公司在内的某些类型的金融机构(定义见下文第3节), state-chartered banks that are members of the Federal Reserve System, savings and loan holding companies, foreign banks operating in the United States, and other entities. The Board has delegated certain supervision and regulation functions, 包括审查受监管实体和处理某些银行申请和通知, to Reserve Banks as agents of the Board.

In performing these delegated functions, the Reserve Banks receive personal information from financial institutions. For example, Reserve Banks review consumer loan data as part of an examination of a bank. 储备银行也可能从受监管的机构收到有关其股东的个人信息, directors, and executive officers in connection with applications submitted by institutions for approval. 储备银行根据董事会的数据隐私政策保护这些个人信息. For more information about what personal information may be involved in supervisory activities, 请 see the Federal Reserve Board Privacy Program site.

2. Fiscal Agent Services to the United States Department of the Treasury (Treasury)

The Reserve Banks act as fiscal agents to the U.S. Treasury to support its goals related to collecting, disbursing, 借款, 投资, and accounting for government funds.

In this capacity, the Reserve Banks collect, 使用, and share personal information for the exclusive purpose of providing such fiscal services. In carrying out these functions, the Reserve Banks follow the Treasury's Data Privacy Policy and other requirements. 看到 U.S. Treasury Privacy Policylist of privacy impact assessments published by the Treasury.

3. Financial Services

The Reserve Banks provide financial services to depository institutions such as banks, credit unions, and savings and loans associations (together, “financial institutions”). 这些服务包括作为结算支票的金融机构之间的中介, 以及结算自动票据交换所(ACH)付款和电子转移资金.

接收和分享个人信息是储备银行提供金融服务的必要方面. As financial intermediaries, Reserve Banks come into possession of personal information such as names, 地址, and account numbers when they process payment transactions submitted by financial institutions. In some instances, a check or payment instruction might also include a social security number or other, more sensitive personal information. As financial intermediaries, 储备银行从金融机构收到这些个人资料,而不是直接向个人收集. 储备银行无法控制金融机构提交的个人信息的类型或准确性. 储备银行将支付交易信息直接或通过该金融机构指定的代理/供应商传递给支付链中的下一个金融机构. Such information may also be 使用d in connection with compliance activities, economic research, and for other operational purposes related to payments processing. For more information about these financial services, see Federal Reserve Bank Financial Services.

4. 贷款

The Reserve Banks extend certain types of credit to financial institutions. 这包括允许账户上的短期透支(称为日光透支)以及其他贷款计划(称为贴现窗口预付款)。.

Discount Window advances must be secured by collateral. The collateral pledged to a Reserve Bank may include consumer loans (e.g., mortgage loans or auto loans). 而贷款一般仍由向储备银行借款的金融机构保管, the Reserve Banks require information about each of the loans pledged as collateral. The consumer-loan-level information obtained for collateral purposes include name, loan number, loan amount, and balance. If actual loan documentation is obtained for sampling or safekeeping purposes, it will include all the information contained therein, which may also include social security numbers, dates of birth, and account numbers. 为借阅功能而取得的个人资料,只会用于支持及促进这些借阅活动, and is shared only to the extent necessary to support these activities. Loan information may also be shared with other financial institutions, such as corporate credit unions and home loan banks, that similarly provide liquidity to depository institutions, to 防止 double-pledging collateral. Please see for more information about these activities.

5. 研究 & Monetary Policy

Some of this information is acquired from third-party data providers. 储备银行也可以通过单独或与其他组织合作设计的调查来获取信息. 保护和负责任地使用研究信息对储备银行至关重要. 储备银行收集或获取的个人身份信息受到严格的信息安全控制(基于NIST框架)和其他控制(包括访问限制)的约束, 使用, 分享, 存储, and disposal of the information.

6. Law Enforcement

每家储备银行都有自己的联邦储备执法部门负责保护其业务, facilities, and physical assets.

This information may include name and information on a government-issued ID. Some Reserve Banks also collect personal information to conduct background checks of vendors, contractors, and employees for the purpose of verifying identity and managing risk.  Background checks, public records searches, 和其他信息收集也可用于评估对联邦储备系统的潜在威胁.
