PART II – RIGDIG REPORT DISCLAIMER
This RigDig Report (this “Report”) was compiled by Randall-Reilly Publishing Company, LLC (“RRPC”) solely from the information and datasets received and processed by RRPC as of the date of the Report, as provided by multiple third-party data suppliers and data sources, including the National Motor Vehicle Title Information System (“NMVTIS”). Additional information about this motor vehicle, including problems, may not have been reported to, processed accurately by, or properly transmitted to us by our third-party suppliers and sources. RRPC does not provide information or data to NMVTIS or any of our other third-party suppliers or sources, nor does it verify, test, audit, approve or otherwise review the motor vehicle information or data it receives. Therefore, unless otherwise agreed in writing NEITHER RRPC NOR ANY CUSTOMER OF RRPC ASSUMES ANY RESPONSIBILITY FOR ANY ERRORS, INACCURACIES OR OMISSIONS IN THIS REPORT AND, OTHER THAN THE RIGDIG CERTIFICATION (AS DEFINED BELOW) IF APPLICABLE, RRPC AND ITS CUSTOMERS EACH EXPRESSLY DISCLAIM ALL REPRESENTATIONS AND WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND (WHETHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED), INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, ANY WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, SATISFACTION OF YOUR REQUIREMENTS, DATA ACCURACY OR ARISING OUT OF A COURSE OF PERFORMANCE, DEALING OR TRADE USAGE.
This Report is only one of many important factors to consider when making an informed motor vehicle purchase decision. In addition to this Report, a vehicle inspection, test drive and review of other maintenance records are important steps to making an informed motor vehicle purchase decision.
This Report may indicate that the motor vehicle with the vehicle identification number (VIN) set forth in this Report (the “Subject Vehicle”) qualifies for “RigDig Certification.” For purposes of the Report, “RigDig Certification” means that, after taking commercially reasonable efforts to access the NMVTIS central files available to RRPC as of the time and date set forth in this Report, RRPC did not identify any Title Brands, Junk or Salvage Yard reports or Total Loss Insurance Claims (each as defined in the Report) reported in such NMVTIS central files and related to the VIN of the Subject Vehicle.
Use of Report
You may only publish, display or distribute this Report in its entirety, including all disclaimers, titles, trade marks, trade names, copyright notices, and other proprietary notices included herein, and in accordance with all applicable laws and RRPC procedures. You may not modify, create derivative works from, sell or otherwise exploit any of the trade marks, trade names, logos, text or graphic images included in this Report (collectively, the “Report Content”), without express written consent of RRPC. RRPC and its affiliates and contractors own the Report Content and retain all intellectual property rights therein.
The portions of this Report that were compiled from information received from NMVTIS are designated with the NMVTIS logo. The following Consumer Access Product Disclaimer applies solely to such NMVTIS information:
NMVTIS Consumer Access Product Disclaimer
The National Motor Vehicle Title Information System (NMVTIS) is an electronic system that contains information on certain automobiles titled in the United States. NMVTIS is intended to serve as a reliable source of title and brand history for automobiles, but it does not contain detailed information regarding a vehicle’s repair history.
All states, insurance companies, and junk and salvage yards are required by federal law to regularly report information to NMVTIS. However, NMVTIS does not contain information on all motor vehicles in the United States because some states are not yet providing their vehicle data to the system. Currently, the data provided to NMVTIS by states is provided in a variety of time frames; while some states report and update NMVTIS data in “real-time” (as title transactions occur), other states send updates less frequently, such as once every 24 hours or within a period of days.
Information on previous, significant vehicle damage may not be included in the system if the vehicle was never determined by an insurance company (or other appropriate entity) to be a “total loss” or branded by a state titling agency. Conversely, an insurance carrier may be required to report a “total loss” even if the vehicle’s titling-state has not determined the vehicle to be “salvage” or “junk.”
A vehicle history report is NOT a substitute for an independent vehicle inspection. Before making a decision to purchase a vehicle, consumers are strongly encouraged to also obtain an independent vehicle inspection to ensure the vehicle does not have hidden damage. The Approved NMVTIS Data Providers (look for the NMVTIS logo) can include vehicle condition data from sources other than NMVTIS.
NMVTIS data INCLUDES (as available by those entities required to report to the System):
- Information from participating state motor vehicle titling agencies.
- Information on automobiles, buses, trucks, motorcycles, recreational vehicles, motor homes, and tractors. NMVTIS may not currently include commercial vehicles if those vehicles are not included in a state’s primary database for title records (in some states, those vehicles are managed by a separate state agency), although these records may be added at a later time.
- Information on “brands” applied to vehicles provided by participating state motor vehicle titling agencies. Brand types and definitions vary by state, but may provide useful information about the condition or prior use of the vehicle.
- Most recent odometer reading in the state’s title record.
- Information from insurance companies, and auto recyclers, including junk and salvage yards, that is required by law to be reported to the system, beginning March 31, 2009. This information will include if the vehicle was determined to be a “total loss” by an insurance carrier.
- Information from junk and salvage yards receiving a “cash for clunker” vehicle traded-in under the Consumer Assistance to Recycle and Save Act of 2009 (CARS) Program.
Consumers are advised to visit www.vehiclehistory.gov for details on how to interpret the information in the system and understand the meaning of various labels applied to vehicles by the participating state motor vehicle titling agencies.

Since 2000, there have been over 639,000 federally recordable, tow-away accidents for class 3-8 trucks (for valid VINs) reported in RigDig. Of these accidents, over 23,000 resulted in a fatality.
VIN Cloning is a growing crime, where criminals take the vehicle identification number (VIN) from a wrecked vehicle while it is sitting in a junkyard, then create new VIN plates for a stolen vehicle of the same make, model, year and color. RigDig can protect you from purchasing a VIN cloned vehicle.
In April of 2013, 3.7% of the RigDig Reports run by users were for trucks that were flagged as either Junk, Salvage or had a serious Salvage Title.
