CFTC Privacy Program
Consumer Financial Privacy
The Commodity Exchange Act provides the CFTC with the authority to prescribe regulations that establish appropriate standards for financial institutions subject to its jurisdiction to safeguard customer records and information.
Privacy Impact Assessments
A privacy impact assessment (PIA) is an analysis of how PII is handled to ensure that handling conforms to applicable privacy requirements, to determine the privacy risks associated with an information system or activity, and to evaluate ways to mitigate privacy risks.
System of Records Notices
A system of records notice (SORN) provides notice of the existence of a system of records and describes the type of information collected, why it is being collected, what it may be used for, when it may be disclosed to third parties, how it will be safeguarded, and how and when it will be destroyed.
Submit a Privacy Act Request
Request access to information about you maintained in a system of records or, if you know or suspect that the CFTC has information about you that is inaccurate, irrelevant, untimely, or incomplete, request that the information be corrected or amended.
File a Privacy Complaint
We take your privacy seriously, and have created a process by which you can formally file a complaint with our Chief Privacy Officer.
