Auction Group Partners with Privacy App Featured

By Staff Writer February 10, 2020

America’s Auto Auction, the largest independent auction group in North America and Privacy4Cars, the first mobile process designed to help erase personal information from vehicle systems,  announced a relationship to start offering a personal information deletion service to vehicle consignors, including OEMs, captives, banks and auto lenders, rental and business fleets, and dealers across America’s Auto Auction 23 locations.

“We are excited to partner with such a leader in the auto auction industry  as America’s Auto Auction” said Andrea Amico, founder of Privacy4Cars and expert in vehicle privacy and cybersecurity. “We often see consignors bringing vehicles to auctions that still contain the previous drivers’ personal information stored in their electronic systems (garage door codes, home addresses, phone identifiers, contact lists, call logs, text messages, etc.) Now, thanks to this relationship, consignors can rely on America’s Auto Auction to dispose of the personal information stored in their vehicles, whether it’s to be compliant with internal record disposal guidelines, to provide peace of mind to their customers, or to meet the requirements of privacy and security of connected devices laws in a growing list of states.”

Matt Arias, America’s Auto Auction Assistant vice president, said the auction needed a consistent method to clear that information.

“In short, we needed this tool, “Arias said. “Privacy4Cars’ is the best solution. Not just because the operators get step-by-step directions on how to clear the systems, but also comes with detailed and on-demand records we can rely on to both provide proof of work to our consignors and operational metrics to efficiently run the process.”
