Title: Privacy of Consumer Financial Information, OMB Control No. 3038-0055. This is a request for extension of a currently approved information collection.

Abstract: Section 124 of the Commodity Futures Modernization Act of 2000 (“CFMA”) amended the Commodity Exchange Act (the “Act”) and added a new Section 5g to the Act to make the Commission a Federal functional regulatory for purposes of applying the provisions of Title V, Subtitle A of the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (“GLB Act”) addressing consumer privacy to any futures commission merchant, commodity trading advisor, commodity pool operator or introducing broker that is subject to the Commission's jurisdiction with respect to any financial activity. In general, Title V requires financial institutions to provide notice to consumers about the institution's privacy policies and practices, to restrict the ability of a financial institution to share nonpublic personal information about consumers to nonaffiliated third parties, and to permit consumers to prevent the institution from disclosing nonpublic personal information about them to certain non-affiliated third parties by “opting out” of that disclosure. These regulations implement the mandates of Section 124 and Title V of the GLB Act.

An agency may not conduct or sponsor, and a person is not required to respond to, a collection of information unless it displays a currently valid OMB control number. The OMB control numbers for the CFTC's regulations were published on December 30, 1981. See 46 FR 63035 (Dec. 30, 1981). The Federal Register notice with a 60-day comment period soliciting comments on this collection of information was published on May 22, 2007 (72 FR 28686).

Burden statement: The respondent burden for this collection is estimated to average .27 hours per response. These estimates include the time needed to review instructions; develop, acquire, install, and utilize technology and systems for the purposes of collecting, validating, and verifying information, processing and maintaining information and disclosing and providing information; adjust the existing ways to comply with any previously applicable instructions and requirements; train personnel to be able to respond to a collection of information; and transmit or otherwise disclose the information.

Respondents/Affected Entities: 4,500.

Estimated number of responses: 342,000.

Estimated total annual burden on respondents: 93,420 hours.

Frequency of collection: On Occasion.
