administer the loan while it is outstanding and provide the borrower with customer
service during the loan repayment period. Therefore, information must be shared

applicable federal, state and local laws and regulations. We require the service
providers we use to sign business agreements that restrict their use of borrower
information to fulfilling the contracted service.

your information to fulfilling the contracted service.
Disclosures Permitted or Required By Law. We may disclose information when we believe
it necessary to conduct our business and where disclosure is permitted or required

such as guarantors, lenders, loan servicers, the Department of Education, credit
