The Michigan Information Purchaser’s Bond is required by the Michigan Motor Vehicle Department of State.
What is the purpose of a Michigan Information Purchaser’s Bond?
The Michigan Department of State offers Direct Access to its computer system for commercial users in order to get a copy of a driving, vehicle, mobile home, watercraft and/or recreational vehicle records.
It confirms that the bondholder will compensate the Department or any person whose personal information is included on any record or list of information purchased from the Department, only after a judgment has been entered in a court of law, or after a final determination has been made by the Federal Trade Commission against the bondholder.
To apply for this access the following items must be submitted to the Michigan Department of State:
- A letter of application, which explains the reasons for needing to obtain records, and the type of record, either driving or vehicle.
- An “Information Purchaser” Surety Bond in the amount of $25,000.
- A signed agreement, which establishes the terms and conditions under which records may be obtained.
- A “System Access Request” form for each person who is to have access (copy the form provided as needed).
- A “Reason for Record Request” to show that your business purpose complies with Driver Privacy Protection laws.
