ComplyAuto was founded by two long-time industry compliance experts specializing in automotive privacy and cybersecurity, Chris Cleveland and the late Shane McCallan. Now with over 3,000 dealership customers and over thirty state association endorsements, ComplyAuto has become the leading provider of privacy and cybersecurity technology in the automotive industry. It is also a NADA Affinity Provider for state and federal privacy, as well as cybersecurity.

Chris Cleveland, ComplyAuto’s co-founder and chief executive officer, noted, “Standardization of privacy and cybersecurity protocols in the automotive industry, from both a technical and legal approach, is long overdue and will benefit all parties involved in the automotive retail ecosystem. ComplyAuto is excited to join STAR and use the knowledge and expertise we’ve gained by working closely with thousands of dealers and vendors across the U.S. on compliance with the growing list of consumer privacy and data security regulations.”

ComplyAuto was the first dealer-specific software company to help automate compliance with complex privacy regulations, such as the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 (CCPA). Since then, ComplyAuto has expanded its offerings to address the privacy and data security regulations of all 50 states, including a comprehensive solution for the revised Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (GLBA) Safeguards Rule issued by the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) earlier this year. 

“We are very excited about having ComplyAuto join the STAR membership,” said Rafael Maldonado, chairman of STAR Standard. “With the changes recently enacted by the FTC to the GLBA Safeguards Rule, we need to ensure that STAR stays at the forefront of standardization efforts to help our members meet compliance requirements at the federal, state and local levels. Having ComplyAuto as a member of STAR will go a long way to help us do that. Their compliance experience and expertise is unquestionable. They will increasingly benefit the automotive industry through their contributions to the work being done here at STAR.”
