I request business counseling service from the Small Business Administration (SBA) or Community Navigator. I agreed to cooperate should I be selected to participate in surveys designated to evaluate SBA services. I permit SBA or its agent the use of my name and address for SBA surveys and information mailings regarding SBA products and services (select below). I understand that any information disclosed will be held in strict confidence. (SBA will not provide your personal information to commercial entities). I authorize SBA to furnish relevant information to the assigned management counselor(s). I further understand that the counselor(s) agrees not to: 1) recommend goods or services from sources in which he/she has an interest, and 2) accept fees or commissions developing from this counseling relationship. In consideration of the counselor(s) furnishing management or technical assistance, I waive all claims against SBA personnel, and that of its Community Navigator and host organizations, arising from this assistance.
