Auto Dealer Data Leakage - Data Reports, Lock'm Down - DTG Digital Efficiency

Posted on February 16, 2012 at 10:30pm 0 Comments

The Data War is raging.

Added after initial post:

My suggestion of Locking Down Critical Dealership Data Fields has generated interesting feedback on other thread(s). The jury is out here on why others are not jumping on board with the suggestion of starving the beast by restricting which data is accessible to a VERY limited number of intermediary data polling services. Don't mind me for trying to keep this simple... That is what I do... I look at things (mostly digital) and…

David T. Gould Reply to Thomas A. Kelly - Automotive Dealer Data Access - Data Fields, Lock'm Down

Posted on February 8, 2012 at 10:32am 0 Comments

Tom - DMV does play into this. They are wrong for selling personal data as well when it is without the permission of the original owner. As far as I am concerned, find money for the bridge elsewhere. Just like TrueCar, people are turning their backs on their personal information with an illusion that they may be saving money... Meanwhile, their personal information is being bought and sold by a very few tech savy companies. As stated elsewhere, this data accumulation business is in the multi…

TrueCar - Who is responsible for personal information? Are the authorities missing the point?

Posted on December 21, 2011 at 6:27am 2 Comments

I profess to being one of the "lurkers" who mostly skims these automotive blogs to stay on top of today's automotive news and catch up on the latest and greatest vendor offerings. Today I am making an exception and making this post to highlight that this issue is VERY TECHNICAL. Maybe too technical for the automotive, state and national authorities that are currently getting involved. Based on posts from our friends Jim, Ralph and the like, I am seeing advertising and improper sales (bird…

David,

I believe I may have seen the same warning as you did at some point in the past from my Kaspersky Anitvrus... I posted this notice on the DrivingSales.com Group page that displays the RSS from DrivingSales.com:

"We have received reports that the DrivingSles.com RSS Feed displayed on this page is triggering Anti-Virus software warnings... Has anyone else experienced receiving a Virus notification when visiting this page that displays the DrivingSales.com RSS feed?"

Great! Thanks! We have actually spoke on the phone I believe. About live chat (Contact At Once). It was about 4 or 5 weeks ago.
