The new Red Flags Guarantee will cover associated government-issued fines of up to $25,000 should a dealership be cited for noncompliance with the Red Flags Rule while using the DealerTrack Compliance Solution.

"With auto identity theft on the rise, a new era of regulatory requirements has emerged, and DealerTrack has dealers covered when it comes to compliance," said Robert Granados, vice president and general manager, Finance Solutions, DealerTrack.  "Backed by our extensive experience navigating the compliance and regulatory landscape and years of safeguarding dealers from identity theft, we can confidently offer this guarantee."

The DealerTrack Compliance Solution helps protect a dealership throughout the sales and F&I process, including credit reports and Red Flags, credit application submissions, menu presentations, and document storage and retrieval. The solution is designed to allow dealers to work all deals on one fully integrated and secure platform to streamline the process and protect their dealership and its customers.
