CARFAX files second lawsuit alleging data breaches

Committed to stopping businesses from illegally accessing its data, CARFAX filed another lawsuit in U.S. District Court. 

The automotive data resource has identified Primeritus Financial Services, Inc. as one of several companies alleged to have violated its terms and conditions of use associated with the consumer-facing myCARFAX service.

"Trust and integrity are paramount to CARFAX," CARFAX General Counsel Julie Ortmeier said in a press release. "We will continue our efforts to protect our data. We have already taken action against several companies that have misused our products and services and we will take action against others who do the same."

CARFAX delivers a wide range of services and products to more than 28,000 vehicle dealers, 58,000 service shops and 5,400 auto finance and insurance company partners through several tools and business accounts. The myCARFAX service is specifically intended for personal use by individual vehicle owners.

CARFAX previously filed a lawsuit against another company for the same alleged conduct.
