writes: I saw this on FNC's Glenn Beck Show yesterday and is recounted here. When a car dealer visits the cars.gov web site to apply for the rebate, he encounters the following disclaimer:
"This application provides to the DoT CARS system. When logged on to the CARS system, your computer is considered a federal computer system and it is property of the United States government, ... Any and all uses of this system and all files on this system may be intercepted, monitored, recorded, copied, audited, inspected, and disclosed to authorized CARS, DoT and law enforcement personnel, as well as authorized officials of other agencies, both domestic and foreign."
I haven't been able to duplicate the path described in the article, maybe because I'm not a registered dealer or maybe the process has changed as much as the program has in the past few days.
