"You have applied to the Village of Noble to open up an utilities account. As part of that application, you have been required to provide your social security number pursuant to certain exceptions contained in the Illinois Identity Protection Act. The purpose of having that information is so that the Village may run a credit check on you if so desired and to facilitate collection of past due utility bills from you in the event that you do no pay your account when due. Another purpose is that the number may be used by the Village for internal verification or administrative purposes for keeping track of your usage and billings. Another purpose may be that your social security card may be used as one of the two forms of identification that must be presented to the Village in order to open up a new utility account. The disclosure of your social security number is mandatory; failure to disclose that number will result in your application to open an utilities account being denied. Your social security number will be held in strictest confidence, subject to disclosure only as allowed by law, and will be accessed and handled by only those personnel trained in handling that information per the requirements of the Illinois Identity Protection Act."
