I understand that this credit report can be made available to me for financial counseling purposes and to aid in my financial well-being.  Additionally, I release my credit score to TND and CONNECT for data collection and evaluative purposes. I understand that it will be used only in the aggregate without personal identifiers and will never be released to a third party without my consent.  Any reproduction of this credit report authorization and release made by reasonable means (e.g. photocopy or facsimile) is considered an original.
