Privacy Act (5 U.S.C. 552a) – Under the provisions of the Privacy Act, you are not required to provide your social security number. Failure to
provide your social security number may not affect any right, benefit or privilege to which you are entitled. (But see Debt Collection Notice
regarding taxpayer identification number below). Disclosures of name and other personal identifiers are required to provide SBA with
sufficient information to make a character determination. When evaluating character, SBA considers the person’s integrity, candor, and
disposition toward criminal actions. Additionally, SBA is specifically authorized to verify your criminal history, or lack thereof, pursuant to
section 7(a)(1)(B), 15 USC Section 636(a)(1)(B) of the Small Business Act (the Act).
Disclosure of Information: Requests for information about another party may be denied unless SBA has the written permission of the
individual to release the information to the requestor or unless the information is subject to disclosure under the Freedom of Information Act.
The Privacy Act authorizes SBA to make certain “routine uses” of information protected by that Act. One such routine use is the disclosure of
information maintained in SBA’s system of records when this information indicates a violation or potential violation of law, whether civil,
criminal, or administrative in nature. Specifically, SBA may refer the information to the appropriate agency, whether Federal, State, local or
foreign, charged with responsibility for, or otherwise involved in investigation, prosecution, enforcement or prevention of such violations.
Another routine use is disclosure to other Federal agencies conducting background checks but only to the extent the information is relevant to
the requesting agencies' function. See, 74 F.R. 14890 (2009), and as amended from time to time for additional background and other routine
uses. In addition, the CARES Act, requires SBA to register every loan made under the Paycheck Protection Act using the Taxpayer
Identification Number (TIN) assigned to the borrower.
Debt Collection Act of 1982, Deficit Reduction Act of 1984 (31 U.S.C. 3701 et seq. and other titles) – SBA must obtain your taxpayer
identification number when you apply for a loan. If you receive a loan, and do not make payments as they come due, SBA may: (1) report the
status of your loan(s) to credit bureaus, (2) hire a collection agency to collect your loan, (3) offset your income tax refund or other amounts
due to you from the Federal Government, (4) suspend or debar you or your company from doing business with the Federal Government, (5)
refer your loan to the Department of Justice, or (6) foreclose on collateral or take other action permitted in the loan instruments.
Right to Financial Privacy Act of 1978 (12 U.S.C. 3401) – The Right to Financial Privacy Act of 1978, grants SBA access rights to
financial records held by financial institutions that are or have been doing business with you or your business including any financial
institutions participating in a loan or loan guaranty. SBA is only required provide a certificate of its compliance with the Act to a financial
institution in connection with its first request for access to your financial records. SBA's access rights continue for the term of any approved
loan guaranty agreement. SBA is also authorized to transfer to another Government authority any financial records concerning an approved
loan or loan guarantee, as necessary to process, service or foreclose on a loan guaranty or collect on a defaulted loan guaranty.
