NCOALink® LIMITED SERVICE PROVIDER REQUIRED TEXT DOCUMENT
Client Command is a non-exclusive Broker of the USPS® (United States Postal Service®) to provide Limited Service NCOALink® processing.
It is important to note that not all Service Providers can offer the same level of service. Data quantity differs based on license level. Full Service Providers receive the full 48-month data set while Limited Service Providers receive an 18 month data set. All data fulfillments to Service Providers are provided weekly under direct license from the USPS.
The full NCOALink file is a consolidated file of move information that on average contains approximately 160 million permanent changes-of-address (COAs) filed with the United States Postal Service (USPS). These COAs are retained on the file for a four-year period from the move-effective date and the file is updated weekly.
Before being added to the NCOALink file, the Old address supplied by the Postal customer must be ZIP + 4 coded. The
New addresses must be ZIP + 4 coded and validated using the USPS’ proprietary database of actual delivery points. (NOTE: The delivery point database does not include NAMES or COA information.) Each delivery point confirmed New address is included on the NCOALink file. If unable to validate the New address, the NCOALink process will indicate that a move exists but will not provide the undeliverable New address.
New address information is provided only when a match to the input name and address is attained. The typical profile of the New address information contained on the NCOA file is as follows:
- 80.92% Forwardable moves containing delivery point confirmed New addresses – New address provided
- 1.18% Moves containing unconfirmed New addresses – New address not provided
- 13.80% Moved, left no address
- 3.92% PO Box Closed
- 0.18% Foreign moves
When possible, postal customers who move multiple times within the NCOALink time period are “linked” or “chained” to ensure that the latest address is furnished when an NCOALink match is attained. This is not always possible if subsequent COAs are not filed in exactly the same manner as a COA filed previously (e.g., name spelling differences or conflicting secondary information).
The provision of change of address information is controlled by strict name and address matching logic. NCOALink processing will only provide new address information when queried with a specific algorithm of the name and input address from a mailers address list which matches the information on the NCOALink Product. Data contained in and information returned by NCOALink is determined by the name and move type (Business, Individual, or Family) indicated on a Postal Customer’s Change of Address Form.

In no event will any Reynolds and Reynolds Company be liable for indirect, incidental, consequential or exemplary damages arising from use or inability to use Reynolds Interface, even if they knew of the possibility of such damages occurring.
5. Limitation of Liability – Data. As part of its Reynolds Certified Interface program, DEALER’S Dealer Management System (“DMS”) provider, The Reynolds and Reynolds Company, and its affiliates (collectively “Reynolds”) has developed certain processes that allow certain third-party software Clients, including CLIENT COMMAND, to receive from Reynolds certain data from the DEALER’S DMS and/or allow CLIENT COMMAND to send data to the DEALER’S DMS. By agreeing to these terms, DEALER is providing consent to: (a) Reynolds’s providing CLIENT COMMAND with data from DEALER’S DMS and (b) CLIENT COMMAND’S providing Reynolds with CLIENT COMMAND data, both of which may include, without limitation, non-public information regarding DEALER’S customers.

NOTICE TO NORTH CAROLINA DEALERS: THIS ADDENDUM RELATES TO THE TRANSFER AND ACCESSING OF CONFIDENTIAL INFORMATION AND CUSTOMER RELATED DATA.
6. Termination. In the event of a material breach of this Addendum or the Agreement by DEALER, CLIENT COMMAND may, in its sole discretion, terminate DEALER’S access to the Reynolds Interface until such time as the breach can be remedied or the parties can come to a modified agreement related to the use of CLIENT COMMAND’S products and services as related to the Reynolds Interface. In the event that either party believes the other party is non-compliant with its legal and regulatory obligations regarding privacy and data security as it relates to the Agreement or Addendum, and is therefore in breach of its obligations hereunder, the non-breaching party may send written notice to the non-compliant party informing them of the non-compliance. Upon receipt of such notice, the receiving party shall have not longer than thirty (30) days to become compliant and produce documentation demonstrating said compliance. If the receiving party does not demonstrate compliance within the thirty (30) day cure period, the non-breaching party shall have the right, in its sole discretion, to terminate the Agreement and Addendum by providing written notice to that effect.
