FTC: Consumer Privacy Comments Concerning MarKahn Co.--P974806
July 7, 1997
RE: SUPPORT OF SELF-REGULATION
Dear Mr. Chairman:
In response to the Commissions Request for additional comments following the hearing held June 10, 1997, my corporation does use public and non-public records, and supports a proposition of Self-Regulation.
The data/information accessed and used in our daily business activities has had a beneficial use in the representation of our clients. As a regular practice, we keep any and all information confidential; and maintain a high degree of accuracy in accordance to the needs of the representations of our clients.
Privacy Protection Issues can be managed through self-regulation guidelines, inclusive of those guidelines pertaining to the distribution of any and all information gathered for our clients. Industries/businesses/vendors at-large who provide the data/information must have the opportunity to self-regulate; and historically has welcomed the governments intervention in the enforcing of any and all rules, along with the respective industries associations assisting in the enforcement process, too.
I ask that you support self-regulation, and to constructively bring about policies & procedures that will benefit any and all businesses for now, and tomorrow.
