I hereby willingly, voluntarily, and with full knowledge of my right under the law, waive the right to confidentiality of information and authorize the Bank to disclose, divulge and reveal any such information relating to my subscription and Salary Advance, including events of default, for the purpose of, among others, client evaluation, credit reporting or verification and recovery of the obligation due and payable to the Bank under the terms and conditions of this credit agreement.
