On behalf of CASRO, I am submitting the attached letter, providing support for and suggestions regarding the FTC's Privacy Report and Proposed Framework. In additional, we have attached a copy of the CASRO Code of Standards for Survey Research. In response to the FTC's mention of the need for additional survey research--marketing, opinion, and social research--regarding privacy issues, CASRO offers our assistance and support of this objective. Please let us know if we can help. Sincerely, Diane Bowers, President
