What Can the Auto Title Lender Tell My Mom? – Cindy

Written by Steve Rhode

“Dear Steve,

I have an auto title loan in AZ. I am currently behind by one month and 1/2. My mom went into that place today and gave them my name. The auto title loan people pulled up my account and told them how many months behind I was and how much i owe them now.

I thought in Auto Title Loan places in Arizona that they cannot disclose any of my information to any one except myself. Isn’t there some sort of privacy act that prevents them from doing this.


Dear Cindy,

Unless you are a minor, your mother is a cosigner on your loan, or you previously gave your mother permission to access your account information, I don’t know what right they had to do that.

The title lender should have given a copy of their privacy notice when you took out the loan that explains who has access to your information.

Please post your responses and follow-up messages to me on this in the comments section below.
