NAR Comments on Consumer Privacy Framework

April 2, 2012

On March 26, NAR submitted comments to the National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA) on the Administration’s recently release Consumer Privacy Framework. In the comments NAR stressed that it is critical that an anticipated multi-stakeholder process consider all relevant voices on this most important issue—including the small business/independent contractor whose business model is increasingly dependent on internet technologies to innovate and thrive.

NAR has adopted a number of principles related to protecting the privacy and security of consumer data and is currently considering the implementation of a real estate industry specific privacy code of conduct.
