Law Enforcement Requests

If Hertz has information necessary to assist law enforcement or government agencies, we will make it available when presented with valid legal process. We disclose data to law enforcement and other government agencies when our legal department determines that we are required to do so by law. In those instances, we will search for and securely disclose data that we are reasonably able to locate and retrieve.
