I have the MVPA in my hands. As I read the clause below:
You give us consent to call you on your cellular or mobile telephone with regard to this Agreement. You further consent to our use of auto dialers and pre-recorded messages in connection with any telephone call we make to you with regard to your vehicle or account with us, including calls made to cellular or mobile telephones. We will not charge you for these telephone calls. Your cellular or mobile telephone provider will charge you according to the type of plan you carry. If you have given us your e-mail address, you consent to receive our email advertisements.
I've strucken the clause out and sent back my MVPA only to hear that this is a boiler plate agreement. Now I'm curious as to how many of you have pushed back or did you give in b/c you wanted the car very badly.
I ask for a few reasons:
1. I find out the main reason is to provide recal notifications, warnings, etc.
2. If you sign this right away, you agree to get Tesla spam on your devices, should they choose to do that. they may not, but you reserve the right ot this
3. Should Tesla be purchased in the future, you will also lose the right to keep this information away for marketing materials.
Now I've asked for the following to be changed to the agreement:
1. Limit this to the intended purpose of recalls, warranty notices, maintenance issues, etc.
2. Or take off my phone or email info in the database.
I'm wondering as a group, if we can push back on this issue collectively. It seems very not in line with Tesla's brand as an open, innovative, and forward thinking organizations.
What do you think?
