Are Your Rights Being Violated?
It is believed that some companies, other than vehicle manufacturers, are sending consumers marketing pieces pitching vehicle service contracts after obtaining the recipient’s vehicle registration information and using it in violation of the Drivers’ Privacy Protection Act (DPPA). A federal law governing the privacy and disclosure of personal information gathered by state DMVs, the DPPA prohibits the use of this information for marketing purposes without the expressed and written consent of the consumer. Those who violate the DPPA are subject to penalties under the Act, as well as possible civil action on behalf of anyone to whom the released information pertains.
