§?1016.8 Revised privacy notices -Before a national bank or federal savings association discloses any nonpublic personal information in a way that is inconsistent with the notices previously given to a consumer, the institution must provide the consumer with a clear and conspicuous revised notice of the institution's policies and practices, provide the consumer with a new opt out notice, give the consumer a reasonable opportunity to opt out of the disclosure, and the consumer must not opt out.
§?1016.7(a) Form of opt out notice to consumers; opt out methods-Form of opt out notice -If a national bank or federal savings association is required to provide an opt out notice under §?1016.10(a), it must provide to each of its consumers a clear and conspicuous notice that accurately explains the right to opt out under that section.

• That the national bank or federal savings association discloses or reserves the right to disclose nonpublic personal information about its consumer to a nonaffiliated third party;
• That the consumer has the right to opt out of that disclosure; and
• A reasonable means by which the consumer may exercise the opt out right.

• Designates check-off boxes on the relevant forms with the opt out notice;
• Includes a reply form with the opt out notice;
• Provides an electronic means to opt out; or
• Provides a toll-free number that consumers may call to opt out.
§§?1016.10(a)(2) and 1016.10(c)-Consumers must take affirmative actions to exercise their rights to prevent financial institutions from sharing their information with nonaffiliated parties-
• Opt out-Consumers may direct that the national bank or federal savings association to not disclose nonpublic personal information about them to a nonaffiliated third party, other than permitted by §§?1016.13-1016.15.
• Partial opt out-Consumers may exercise partial opt out rights by selecting certain nonpublic personal information or certain nonaffiliated third parties with respect to which the consumer wishes to opt out.
§§?1016.7(h) and 1016(i) Continuing right to opt out and Duration of right to opt out -A consumer may exercise the right to opt out at any time. A consumer's direction to opt out is effective until the consumer revokes it in writing or, if the consumer agrees, electronically.
