Moreover, TCA REFUSES to remove your registrations details from its online database. And this registration information that TCA required and acquired was fairly detailed.
I called a representaive [LaToya] today - 12/15/2003 - to have my details removed because their website search function doesn't work properly anyway. She was adamant that there was no way that I could get my information removed once I have registered. Asking for a supervisor was pointless because she says she works without supervision.
I originally called to query why I was not able to call-up the status on five rebates. (These are rebates for which I have already received "confirmation" emails from TCA via its website address.) LaToya proceeded to tell me that I couldn't pull-up the rebates because my LOGIN ID wasn't valid - the Login for which I so diligently "registered" all my personnal information. LaToya proceeded to give me alternative 8 digit Login ID numbers for each rebate claim item SHE could see in her system. A fat lot of good that does for me in the future! Seems more of a pretext to get my Personal Information to on-sell at some future date. Please note that TCA has no accreditation with eTrust or similar Privacy sites.
I will now contact OfficeMax and try to prevail on its "moral" responsibility to pressure TCA to remove my details as requested. I trust that all persons who register rebate complaints at this RipoffReport website give prominence to the RETAILER using the rebate processor in question.
