Video Summaries for Privacy Fight Ultimate - U75 to U99
U75 – Additional Interest Endorsements – Watch Now
The video focuses on the topic of “additional interest endorsements”, which pertain to insurance coverage on an asset, particularly property, initially owned by a person but later transferred to another entity. The discussion presents scenarios and provides insight into how insurance endorsements work, particularly when there’s a change in the titleholder while the original owner maintains the debt obligation.
In one case, an individual who is acquiring property faces a hurdle while trying to get the property titled in the name of a Limited Liability Company (LLC) during mortgage financing. The recommended solution is to close the transaction in personal names and subsequently transfer the title to the LLC.
An important point raised is that as long as the original property owner retains the same interest, even after transferring the title to a different entity (like a trust), there’s no need to inform the insurance company or get an endorsement. An endorsement, or an addendum, is something that’s added to the insurance policy when there’s a change in interest which the insurance company hasn’t previously considered.
If there’s a change in interest, the insured must allow the insurance company to decide whether it wants to add coverage for the new interest. The insurance industry uses an internal form, Form 107.9, for this purpose. The video also discusses how marriage is often viewed as one entity in this context. For example, if a property owner gets married, they won’t need to change their insurance policy.
Lastly, if the beneficial interest doesn’t change even if the title does (like when a married couple transfers the title to an LLC they own), there’s typically no need for an additional interest endorsement. However, adding other parties such as adult children or a C corporation may require an endorsement.
U76 – PMA & Estate Planning I of II – Watch Now
The meeting led by John Jay addressed the use of Private Membership Associations (PMAs) in estate planning to ensure family wealth is managed and transferred effectively, away from the traditional probate court system. Jay underscored the importance of utilizing the PMA structure for estate planning due to its potential to maintain privacy and control over the distribution of assets, and also due to the potential exploitation people have suffered under the traditional legal system in the past decades.
He likened a PMA to private functions like a wedding or birthday party where attendees are selectively invited. For effective estate planning, Jay suggests the concept of not having an estate worth talking about but rather having assets managed under a PMA. He discussed an example where a family of four uses the PMA structure for managing their assets, illustrating how the family’s relationship is described, and the property is defined within the PMA.
Jay also touched on various scenarios, such as how to handle the transition of property upon death, how assets could be distributed to heirs under specified conditions, and ensuring heirs have the necessary education to manage inherited property responsibly. He also talked about placing the PMA documents under the custodianship of a law firm for secure, reliable storage.
On the topic of privacy, Jay discussed how title holders of property can be changed to provide privacy when necessary, although he cautions against such an action if there are existing liens or claims against your name. He also offered insights on how to manage interactions with authorities to maintain privacy.
The conversation concluded with addressing concerns about LLCs and banking for PMAs, advising participants on how to navigate potential issues with institutions. He suggested the use of the EIN for businesses and recommended keeping records of all interactions with financial institutions to ensure transparency and accountability. The final part of the meeting was dedicated to answering questions and addressing the attendees’ concerns.
U77 – PMA & Estate Planning II of II – Watch Now

The discussion emphasized the importance of estate planning for wealth management and privacy. Various concepts related to PMA were discussed, including methods for maintaining privacy and avoiding potential exploitation through the judicial system.
The importance of having clear rules on asset management within a family or estate was noted, drawing parallels to organizing a garage sale where decisions are made on what to keep and what to sell. The facilitator highlighted the possibility of managing these affairs independently, without the need for external entities such as the state or an attorney.
The facilitator further explored the idea of probate, its etymology and its implications in estate planning. The participants were informed about the pre-set rules of probate and how it functions in a real-life scenario. It was also discussed how an estate can be structured so that it does not need to go through probate, thereby providing a degree of privacy and control.
Further discussions revolved around the strategic use of LLCs and Trusts in estate planning. It was made clear that these structures could separate personal liabilities from the assets managed within them, making them particularly useful tools. The facilitator also addressed specific concerns around the potential threats to the privacy and autonomy that these structures can offer.
Overall, the session emphasized the benefits of active estate planning, particularly using structures like PMAs, LLCs, and Trusts to provide better control, privacy, and financial efficiency.

U80 – Rogue News Economic Update, De-Dollarization & Agent Smith – Watch Now
This is an executive summary of a discussion on the “U80 – Rogue News Economic Update, De-Dollarization & Agent Smith – Privacy Fight.” The conversation begins with the host, Adam, introducing guest John Singleton, who is metaphorically described as fighting 87,000 IRS agents. The discussion revolves around the power of the IRS, increased enforcement, and its impact on the citizens. They address concerns over the IRS’s privacy infringements and the potential for harassment, especially for those evading taxes.
John advises against lying to the IRS and filing false reports, highlighting the importance of transparency and honesty when dealing with such institutions. The dialogue then shifts to the topic of cryptocurrency transactions, emphasizing that while there is certain anonymity in these transactions, they are not entirely invisible to authorities like the IRS if they put the effort into tracing them.
John mentions FinCEN, a standalone agency that has software connected to all banks and financial institutions, watching all transactions. He cautions against giving into fear propagated by accountants and CPAs, stressing the importance of not altering one’s behavior out of fear.
They touch on the mortgage crisis of 2008-9 and how the dollar is essentially a medium of theft. They describe a scenario where mortgages are sold within 30 days and then traded as securities on the backend, a practice they liken to a financial scheme.
The discussion ends with their vision of a dystopian future where ownership is a thing of the past, predicting a future where individuals do not own anything, from cars to homes, and the potential societal impacts of such a situation. The hosts express their resistance to this notion, arguing that it infringes on individual liberties and rights. They finish off with a humorous note on the idea of consuming insects for environmental reasons.
U81 – California Franchise Tax Board and Residency, Overreach Tax Liability – Watch Now
The discussion opens with an introduction of the speaker, John Jay, who primarily shares his content through videos on various platforms, including a members-only segment on the website privacyfight.io. He also uses the site coins.com, where users can schedule calls with him and read articles he has written.
The main focus of the talk is the overreach of the California Franchise Tax Board and its implications for residency and tax liability. The speaker uses the case of ‘Sward’, a non-resident entity, to illustrate his points. Sward argued that it was not subject to franchise tax as it held no investments in California and wasn’t doing business in the state. The court agreed with Sward, signaling that the state couldn’t impose tax obligations without a real active presence of a company connected to business within its borders.
Following this, the speaker also discusses the issue of Central Bank Digital Currency (CBDC). He perceives CBDC as a version of fiat currency that can be easily tracked and controlled. He mentions the potential of CBDC to infringe on personal freedom, as they could be manipulated based on personal beliefs or affiliations.
Later, he brings up the issue of state and federal laws regarding Social Security Numbers (SSN) and the potential inconveniences surrounding it. He also delves into the complexities of car insurance and self-insurance. In addition, he talks about the process of filing a tort claim and the considerations involved in borrowing and credit management.
In the concluding section, the speaker raises some questions about tax implications associated with various transactions, such as borrowing from a life insurance policy. He suggests that the tax liability could potentially be different depending on whether the policy is in an individual’s name or an LLC’s name. He emphasizes the need for understanding specific transaction details to accurately determine potential tax liabilities.
U82 – Wyoming LLC Annual Report – Watch Now
John Jay’s conference held on September 15, 2022, centered on two main topics – a unique legal perspective on a liability case and filing annual reports in the state of Wyoming for an LLC.
Jay discussed a recent case involving a man found liable in a car accident, suggesting that instead of shouldering the entire liability, the person could also file a claim against the city. Jay posits that since the accident occurred on city property, the city should share some responsibility. The city, county, and state all have insurance for such incidents, he argues, just as a property owner would be liable for a slip and fall accident. Jay advised that filing such a claim might change how the court views the situation and the person’s total liability.
The second part of the conference revolved around filing annual reports for an LLC in Wyoming. Jay expressed concerns that Wyoming seems to have merged its annual report process with a tax return. Given that the online renewal process doesn’t allow for variation, he advised against using it, suggesting that people instead use a manual process based on the state’s statute. According to Jay, this approach should help maintain the LLC’s good standing while only costing a $60 fee. He emphasized that for most LLC owners, who do not transact or carry out business within Wyoming, the state’s requirements for reporting capital, property, and assets should not apply.
U83 – Crypto Exchange KYC & Privacy Rights – Watch Now
The executive summary of “U83 – Crypto Exchange KYC & Privacy Rights – Privacy Fight” discusses the speaker’s concerns and views about the Know Your Customer (KYC) rules that crypto exchanges like Coinbase follow and their implications on privacy. The speaker highlights how these exchanges demand a variety of personal information such as organizational charts, personal financial identifying information, and employment information.
The speaker emphasizes the financial value of personal data, comparing it to a burning log with the potential for misuse. He questions the exchanges’ responsibility in case of data breaches and their willingness to accept liability. The speaker also raises concerns about the collection and use of data that wasn’t necessary for their operation.
He further explores the nuances of providing proprietary data, questioning why certain information such as phone numbers are needed when they don’t serve a clear function in the exchange’s operation. He also challenges the necessity of data collection for single-member entities, which may provide redundant information.
The speaker concludes by considering how these privacy concerns apply to other business scenarios, including his T-shirt business and real estate. He recommends asking about the security criteria and control over information when dealing with organizations that require personal data. The speaker encourages listeners to challenge the necessity of data collection and understand their right to privacy.
U84 – Applications for the PMA with Greater Details – Watch Now
The video conference discussed Private Membership Associations (PMA), their function, and potential benefits. The speaker clarified that PMAs are private groups, not regulated by the state, which include a range of entities from homeowners associations to social gatherings. They pointed out the value of PMAs in legal matters, emphasizing their potential to establish licensing or permissions within the membership for different activities such as banking and insurance.
The speaker also touched upon the ecclesiastical nature of the court system and its function as a gatekeeper for access to the law. He criticized the system’s claim over our access to justice, stating that it unfairly asserts ownership over legal accessibility.
The conversation then shifted to the challenges of utilizing PMAs. According to the speaker, banks and government agencies may hinder PMA usage due to existing taxation systems. However, he encouraged listeners to explore the concept, suggesting that blockchain technology could be used to maintain immutable records.
The speaker also briefly touched on the benefits of foreign grantor trusts, emphasizing their non-taxable status. An example was provided regarding a transition from regular taxpaying citizen status to conducting private affairs through PMAs, highlighting that as long as the PMA does not create a gain for oneself, there would not be a problem.
The discussion ended by addressing the potential for risk management through PMA structure, particularly regarding ownership of business assets such as vehicles. The speaker advised separating high-risk assets from the company’s ownership to minimize liability, suggesting a lease-back arrangement. The possibility of reopening the same business under a new name in a different state was also explored to avoid penalties from the original state. The speaker advised maintaining the same EIN to avoid issues with banking institutions.
U85 – Yes, You Can Do That with Your LLC – Watch Now
The speaker primarily discusses the benefits and versatility of utilizing Limited Liability Companies (LLCs) for various purposes such as managing cash flow, liability reduction, and privacy. The speaker emphasizes that LLCs are flexible instruments and encourages listeners to explore their potential beyond traditional usage, for example, in land management and privacy measures.
The speaker outlines different ways in which an LLC can be used, such as managing assets and mitigating personal liability. This includes transferring personal assets into an LLC, which protects those assets from personal liability, and replacing personal accounts with those owned by an LLC.
Further, the speaker explains the benefits of moving the title of real estate to an LLC, and how to properly execute this procedure. The speaker notes that this process may seem unusual or illegal to those unfamiliar with it, but reassures listeners that it’s a valid practice that can offer significant benefits.
The speaker also elaborates on the potential uses of LLCs in creating separate legal entities for different businesses or partners, and how this provides additional layers of protection and control. Moreover, they discuss the advantages of using LLCs over trusts, due to the greater flexibility and lower risk of legal challenges that LLCs offer.
The speaker provides advice on setting up a line of credit attached to the LLC rather than using a traditional credit card. This involves setting up net 30 accounts and ensuring a balance between these accounts.
Lastly, the speaker explores advanced uses of LLCs such as the transfer of property through trusts and handling of tax liabilities. They advise listeners to consider securing loans against LLC assets and discuss ways to define land under a foreign jurisdiction.
In summary, the speaker promotes the use of LLCs as versatile tools in a range of situations and encourages listeners to challenge traditional views of LLC usage in order to gain the most from their capabilities.

The discussion then veered toward alternative energy sources, like E-fuels. He highlighted how such innovations could provide better fuel economy, burn cleaner, and generate more horsepower than conventional fuels. He suggested that such developments could potentially outpace electric cars in terms of popularity and practicality.
Finally, Singleton critiqued homeowners’ associations (HOAs) for their excessive control over neighborhood resources and property rights. He proposed that more collective decision-making among homeowners, such as bulk buying from suppliers, could lead to significant savings. He also advocated for the need to move towards self-sustainability, citing the example of houses in Australia that generate their own power, making them nearly independent of the power grid.

U91 – A Post Nuptial Agreement and Divorcing the State – Watch Now
John Jay Singleton delivers an insightful presentation on the strategic use of private membership associations, focusing primarily on the use of homeowners’ associations (HOAs) and covenants to control the title to real estate. This offers control over property taxes and other lienholders, including mortgage foreclosures and city code violations. Singleton emphasizes the importance of not exploiting the system but using it responsibly to limit liability and protect property rights.
Singleton then transitions into discussing the more technical aspects of the HOA covenant. The covenant always has the final say, never gets exhausted, and can limit liabilities and make things work in favor of the property owner. He also points out an interesting fact – the HOA corporation is not actually a member of the association it enforces the rules for.
Singleton introduces the idea of perfecting security interest in your biometric data, which is a property right that people have, irrespective of their nationality. He explains the process to perfect a security interest in your biometric data and how to use that data to limit liability and protect your property rights. This can be applied in many scenarios, including agreements with organizations like Google, Amazon, your DMV, your phone company, and your ISP.
The discussion then evolves into how a private membership association can be used in a family setting to avoid potential disputes that could lead to police involvement. This involves setting up a post-nuptial agreement that serves as a custody agreement and a declaration of the exercise of parental rights. The goal here is to divest the court of being able to interfere in the marriage, and all disputes are required to be resolved through binding arbitration. The key here is cooperation between parents to avoid potential interference from the court.
Singleton’s presentation provides an alternative approach to property management, highlighting the power and potential of homeowners’ associations and the strategic use of covenants. His innovative approach to perfecting a security interest in biometric data provides new avenues for protecting property rights. Additionally, his suggestions for managing potential family disputes through private membership associations offer non-traditional but potentially effective strategies for conflict resolution.
U92 – Collection of Your Financial and Biographical Data — What Rights You Have – Watch Now
This executive summary pertains to a lengthy discussion led by John Jay, tackling data privacy and individual rights, particularly in the context of biographical and financial data. The speaker delves into the concept of private property, specifically intangible private property rights, and shares real-life examples with clients to illustrate the issues at hand.
He touches on the significance of understanding who is collecting your data, why they’re doing it, and what steps you can take in response. John highlights the importance of understanding intellectual property rights, a topic that most consumers are not entirely familiar with, and relates this to data privacy. He emphasizes how individuals can create a liability on the accounting records of organizations that collect data, thereby gaining control over its use.
Further in the conversation, he reveals the process of slamming companies with biometric data, emphasizing the individual’s rights to their biometric information. He mentions E Oscar, an important intermediary in the data exchange process between creditors, debt collectors, and credit reporting agencies.
John Jay also sheds light on a crucial aspect of data privacy— recognizing when a company is using your data and what measures can be taken in response, which can even involve legal action. The conversation ends with a discussion on data collection in everyday life, how it’s used in commerce, and the possibility of monetizing personal data through licensing agreements. The ultimate goal of this discussion, as John Jay points out, is to regain control over one’s privacy and property rights in the context of personal data.
U93 – Eliminating Property Tax and Code Violation Penalties with the HOA Covenant & Biometric Data Lien, Part I – Watch Now
This executive summary provides an overview of a conversation covering topics like property taxes, Homeowners Association (HOA) covenants, biometric data, and their implications on privacy.
The conversation begins with a discussion about the power of liens and how they can be used to alleviate property tax and code violation penalties. HOA covenants, considered a specific type of lien, are discussed in detail. They are unique because they survive all other liens and do not get exhausted in a foreclosure. The speaker suggests the need for homeowners to understand the power of these covenants, and work cooperatively to leverage them for common benefits, such as better internet connectivity and special assessment fees that may deter foreclosure.
Further, the speaker transitions to discuss biometric data, expressing concern over the increasing collection and potential misuse of such data by tech companies. Drawing parallels between biometric data and intellectual property, the speaker suggests that the former can be protected in a similar manner. He proposes a commercial security agreement, explaining how a lien could be used against companies misappropriating biometric data without consent. The speaker envisages an outcome where companies might reconsider their data collection strategies if the financial risk becomes too great.
The speaker also discusses concerns around potential legislation affecting privacy and ownership of personal data. He offers a potential solution in the form of a service that records, perfects, and hands over personal biometric data to individuals, empowering them to assert control over their information. The overall intent is to create a system that enables individuals to claim royalties from entities that use their personal, including biometric, data, similar to intellectual property rights.
Finally, the discussion touches upon more specific cases, such as “for sale by owner” properties, which might have different lien rights. The speaker clarifies that possession or title enables one to exercise the rights discussed earlier. The conversation also includes a brief explanation about the formation of HOAs in neighborhoods that currently lack them.
U94 – Eliminating Property Tax and Code Violation Penalties with the HOA Covenant & Biometric Data Lien, Part II – Watch Now
In the discussion led by John Jay, the main focus was on Liens, particularly the concept of a biometric data lien and the security agreement for biometric data. The discussion dove into how the Homeowner’s Association (HOA) Covenant can be used as a tool to control property titles, allowing homeowners to ignore property tax and similar issues, under the understanding that a covenant is a perpetual lien on real estate. This approach, while unique, raises other issues such as road maintenance, which is typically handled by the county.
A participant brought up a question about whether you need to make a certain down payment to avoid escrow. John explained that this can be modified with the lender to allow the property owner to handle the property tax directly.
There was also an argument presented by an anonymous party, stating that property, as a right, should not be taxed. They claimed success in having property taxes dropped based on this argument. The conversation then shifted to the topic of biometric data and how downloading applications often involves giving away personal data. John discussed a security agreement that can restore property rights in these instances.
Questions were raised regarding how to introduce this lien or security agreement on one’s data and the potential limitations to services this could impose. As a response, John addressed the rights of individuals over their images and likenesses, hinting that these rights could be claimed for commercial purposes.
The discussion also touched on the use of Limited Liability Companies (LLCs) and trusts for asset protection. John explained that the state allows LLCs to protect individuals’ interests, which also benefits the state. He suggested that a court cannot order a change in this arrangement.
Towards the end of the discussion, the conversation shifted to the taxation of cryptocurrency transactions, a topic that was brought up by a participant. The participant’s son had some issues with tax returns on these transactions. John suggested seeking help from crypto accounting specialists.
Finally, the conversation returned to the concept of the lien on biometric data. John clarified that a lien should be established in advance of an incident or request for help. He suggested that people may start to realize they have property rights they can exercise. In the context of property taxes and mortgage liens, John explained that property taxes can wipe out the mortgage, making property taxes a superior lien. The discussion closed with a participant questioning John’s plans without disclosing specific details.
U95 – Reporting Your Financial Beneficial Ownership Interest (BOI) in an LLC — Part I – Watch Now
In a recent presentation, John Jay discussed the implications of new FinCEN reporting requirements that require individuals to report any beneficial ownership interest (BOI) upon the formation of a company. FinCEN, the Financial Crimes Network, has implemented these requirements under the guise of national security, although John Jay suggests the main purpose is to collect information and impose financial penalties.
The Corporate Transparency Act, Section 603, is set to be enforced from 2024 and requires reporting for any transactions exceeding $10,000. It also includes heavy penalties for non-compliance, both civil and criminal. Importantly, the Act does not exclude trust organizations or create any additional tax liabilities.
John Jay further explains that he does not foresee an issue with disclosing information to banks during these new reporting requirements. Despite this, he argues that individuals should disclaim all liability due to the law’s inherent purpose of investigating crimes. He suggests that these changes will likely come into play when filing annual reports, amending articles, or upon the initial filing of a company.
Finally, he encourages the public to explore the use of different monetary units, such as cryptocurrencies, as we may be moving towards a financial environment that embraces multiple forms of currency. John concludes that while some ways to circumvent these new requirements may exist, such as using unregistered companies, for those who want to use registered companies and hold titles, compliance with these new FinCEN requirements will likely be inevitable.
U96 – Reporting Your Financial Beneficial Ownership Interest (BOI) in an LLC — Part II – Watch Now
This executive summary covers a video by John J, discussing a new regulation implemented by the Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN). The rule, slated to come into effect in 2024, pertains to reporting financial beneficial ownership interest in an LLC. John argues that the regulation is intrusive, overreaches its jurisdiction, and compromises privacy rights.
According to the regulation, companies must collect personal information from their members, which could include sensitive data. This data collection process, John argues, is problematic, as companies lack the authority and resources to ensure the information’s accuracy or to investigate potential fraud. Companies could potentially face criminal liability for inaccuracies that they are not equipped to identify.
John further criticizes FinCEN for being ill-prepared to safeguard this collected data. He requests details on data storage, verification of information accuracy, and identity protection measures. Additionally, he demands evidence of FinCEN’s financial responsibility in the event of a data breach.
John indicates that he plans to resist this regulation by all means necessary, potentially leveraging other structures or methods to ensure privacy. He encourages viewers to comprehend the implications of the regulation and decide how it might impact their existing or future LLCs.
In conclusion, John J contends that the new FinCEN rule compromises privacy, exceeds its authority, and lacks a comprehensive mechanism to protect collected data.

U98 – Financing Real Estate Investments with Easements – Watch Now
The U98 conference addressed the concept of using easements in real estate investment and property rescue. The speaker highlighted the potential of easements as a financial rescue mechanism for distressed properties, explaining that instead of controlling the title, it is possible to control the property’s use through lien rights that cannot be exhausted.
The speaker further elaborated on two approaches to implementing this strategy, either through a homeowner’s association (HOA) covenant or easements. He indicated that both an HOA covenant and an easement could effectively act as liens that remain unaffected by foreclosures.
He clarified that negotiating easements with distressed property owners could allow the investor to maintain control over the property, even after foreclosure. This control could involve selling or leasing back the property to the original owner, a strategy achieved through lien rights rather than through title control.
This innovative approach to real estate investing involves developing a comprehensive understanding of easement rights. As the speaker suggested, if well-structured, easement rights can offer significant protection against various interests that might be inconsistent with the investor’s objectives, including potential foreclosures. However, he warned against relying on attorneys for guidance, implying that most are likely to disagree with his strategy.
The speaker also suggested using easement rights as a means to fund development or improvements on the property, arguing that such an arrangement could increase the property’s value and provide the investor with a significant return on their investment.
Finally, the speaker encouraged the use of technology and available services to streamline real estate investment processes, including lead generation tools like those offered by Ron Legrand. He encouraged a comparison of the costs of such services against the value of the investor’s time.
In summary, the speaker’s core argument was the potential for utilizing easements as a means of investment and property rescue in real estate, presenting a unique perspective on how distressed properties can be managed effectively.
U99 – Introduction to The Ad Hoc Jury – Watch Now
The meeting, held on May 11th, centered around discussing the security agreement and its defining components. There was a focus on the concept of using arbitration as a means to resolve disputes. This came in light of observing various cases brought forward to the speaker, many of which could have been potentially resolved or mitigated through arbitration. To this end, the notion of an ‘ad hoc jury’ was introduced, which could be convened virtually using platforms like Zoom. Jurors could review cases and make decisions, thereby expediting resolution in a fair and transparent manner.
The meeting further explored the idea of utilizing an application process for choosing jury members. Although it was acknowledged that it might not be a lucrative endeavor for the participants, the speaker expressed that people might still be interested in being part of the process out of curiosity or a sense of civic duty. The discussion also touched on the possibility of involving the legislature to educate judges, and potentially draw up articles of impeachment if necessary.
The conversation then switched to contractual disputes, with participants probing whether fraud or breach of contract would invalidate an arbitration clause. The speaker affirmed that it would depend on the specifics of the case, but the arbitration process could still be employed. The discussion also included a contemplation on using AI to choose jury members, providing a modern twist on the traditional jury selection process.
The group considered how to handle scenarios such as county foreclosures and potential legal responses, touching on the notion of fraud and the possibility of seeking damages. Additionally, there was discussion around data privacy, the right to reclaim biometric data, and how these could potentially be linked to the security agreement.
Finally, the discussion culminated with an exploration of the process for filing a security agreement, including filling out a UCC-1 form as notice for the agreement. Participants were guided through the process of creating their own agreement, even addressing the possible impacts on their credit. A key takeaway was that security agreements could not be retroactively applied to the time when data was collected, but remedies could still be sought based on the data retention policy, privacy statement, and state law.
