Analysis of Proposed Consent Order To Aid Public Comment

    The Federal Trade Commission (``FTC'' or ``Commission'') has 
accepted, subject to final approval, a consent agreement applicable to 
Dale Jarrett Racing Adventure, Inc. (``Dale Jarrett Racing 
Adventure'').
    The proposed consent order has been placed on the public record for 
thirty (30) days for receipt of comments by interested persons. 
Comments received during this period will become part of the public 
record. After thirty (30) days, the Commission will again review the 
agreement and the comments received, and will decide whether it should 
withdraw from the agreement and take appropriate action or make final 
the agreement's proposed order.
    This matter concerns alleged false or misleading representations 
that Dale Jarrett Racing Adventure made to consumers concerning its 
participation in the Safe Harbor privacy framework agreed upon by the 
U.S. and the European Union (``EU'') (``U.S.-EU Safe Harbor Framework'' 
or ``Safe Harbor Framework''). The Safe Harbor Framework allows U.S. 
companies to transfer data outside the EU consistent with EU law. To 
join the Safe Harbor Framework, a company must self-certify to the U.S. 
Department of Commerce (``Commerce'') that it complies with a set of 
principles and related requirements that have been deemed by the 
European Commission as providing ``adequate'' privacy protection. These 
principles include notice, choice, onward transfer, security, data 
integrity, access, and enforcement. Commerce maintains a public Web 
site, www.export.gov/safeharbor, where it posts the names of companies 
that have self-certified to the Safe Harbor Framework. The listing of 
companies indicates whether their self-certification is ``current'' or 
``not current.'' Companies are required to re-certify every year in 
order to retain their status as ``current'' members of the Safe Harbor 
Framework.
    Dale Jarrett Racing Adventure is a race car driving school that 
offers consumers an opportunity to ride in and drive genuine stock cars 
with professional drivers, and was founded by NASCAR champion Dale 
Jarrett. According to the Commission's complaint, since at least 
January 2015, Dale Jarrett Racing Adventure set forth on its Web site, 
http://www.racingadventure.com/privacy.html, privacy policies and 
statements about its practices, including statements related to its 
participation in the U.S.-EU Safe Harbor Framework.
    The Commission's complaint alleges that Dale Jarrett Racing 
Adventure falsely represented that it was a participant in the U.S.-EU 
Safe Harbor Framework when, in fact, Dale Jarrett Racing Adventure was 
never a participant in the U.S.-EU Safe Harbor Framework. Commerce has 
never included the company on its public Web site.
    Part I of the proposed order prohibits Dale Jarrett Racing 
Adventure from making misrepresentations about its membership in any 
privacy or security program sponsored by the government or any other 
self-regulatory or standard-setting organization, including, but not 
limited to, the U.S.-EU Safe Harbor Framework and the U.S.-Swiss Safe 
Harbor Framework.
    Parts II through VI of the proposed order are reporting and 
compliance provisions. Part II requires Dale Jarrett Racing Adventure 
to retain documents relating to its compliance with the Order for a 
five-year period. Part III requires dissemination of the order now and 
in the future to persons with responsibilities relating to the subject 
matter of the order. Part IV ensures the notification to the FTC of 
changes in corporate status. Part V mandates that Dale Jarrett Racing 
Adventure submit an initial compliance report to the FTC, and make 
available to the FTC subsequent reports. Part VI is a provision 
``sunsetting'' the order after twenty (20) years, with certain 
exceptions.
    The purpose of this analysis is to facilitate public comment on the 
proposed order. It is not intended to constitute an official 
interpretation of the proposed complaint or order or to modify the 
order's terms in any way.

    By direction of the Commission.
April J. Tabor,
Acting Secretary.
