FTC: Consumer Privacy Comments Concerning L. Michael Connelley and Associates--P974806
Connelley and Associates
July 9, 1997
Mr. Robert Pitofsky
Re: Support of Self Regulations
Dear Mr. Chairman:
I am a licensed private investigator and a regular user of public and non-public records (such as credit headers) as it applies to the legitimate needs of the legal and business profession.
The data we regularly access is needed in the support of civil litigation, business due diligence and defense of persons charged with various criminal offenses. We are required to keep this information confidential in order to protect both sides of a conflict from unnecessary scrutiny.
Privacy can be managed through a program of self regulation in the industry that will also allow for the access to critical information.
L. Michael Connelley
