The Board of Financial Institutions (“Agency”) manages the following websites: bofi.sc.gov; banking.sc.gov; and consumerfinance.sc.gov. These sites collect only that information of the User which the User voluntarily and actively provides.
If a User chooses to provide personally identifiable information (“PII”), the Agency may use the PII to research, investigate, and/or respond to the User’s inquiry, request or complaint. PII contained in User-submitted complaints may be shared with Federal or State government agencies, departments, offices or entities that enforce consumer protection and other laws, and the financial institution(s) to which the complaint refers.
The Agency does not collect User information for commercial purposes. However, the Agency may use or disclose such User-provided information and PII as is allowed or required by State or federal laws, including but not limited to the South Carolina Freedom of Information Act (FOIA).
