Carfax Files Suit Featured

By Staff Writer October 25, 2019

Carfax filed a complaint this month as a first step toward stopping businesses from illegally accessing its data. The suit was filed against Patrick K. Willis Co., Inc., doing business as American Recovery Service. It’s one of several companies that Carfax has identified as violating its terms and conditions of use associated with the consumer-facing myCARFAX service.

The myCARFAX service is specifically designed for personal use by individual vehicle owners to help better track their service history and be alerted to open recalls. CARFAX offers several other tools to help businesses utilize vehicle history through legitimate business accounts.

“Our data is at the core of our business,” said Julie Ortmeier, Carfax general counsel. “When we discover someone is misusing our data, we will take action.”
