Advocacy Group and Database Vendor Continue to Clash on Privacy Issue

by Sabrina I. Pacifici on January 6, 2005

“EPIC has called for hearings in Congress and before the Federal Trade Commission on the need for new privacy protections for American consumers. In a December 16, 2004 complaint to Federal Trade Commission, EPIC urged the Commission to determine whether Choicepoint, a large information broker, complies with federal privacy law and also whether it will be necessary to update the laws. Choicepoint disputed EPIC’s charges but said it favored a national debate. Let the debate begin. More information at EPIC’s Choicepoint and FCRA Pages.” [from EPIC]
