I guess Rivian is forwarding along purchasing info to third parties?

I guess so but I've never seen this happen with any of my other vehicles.

Probably scraped registration data.

Just like with search ads a lot of these companies buy data or mine data based on keywords. Rivian could be a targeted keyword for them... Who knows why... Maybe they think they can carve out a niche or get more visibility with a smaller demographic?

I haven't seen anything like this for my Rivian. I use a distinct E-mail for Rivian so I'd definitely notice if it was the case.

A lot of people would be shocked if they knew what "personal data" was public record.

I get extended warranty calls for cars I haven't owned in 5-10 years... my bet is the DMV because I haven't even had loans on some of them.

maybe you have spyware on your computer or a compromised phone?

Maybe they're in your house right now, hiding in the closet, just waiting for you to make your next purchase!

I kid, I kid. Almost certainly sold by your DMV or a registration scraping site. Highly unlikely Rivian is selling your data to extended warranty companies...yet.

We got some surprising stuff at the mailing address that Rivian's underwriter (Nationwide) used. Newsletters from my first college, multiple credit card offers, ... I suppose that it could have been DMV related but they have a different address for us.

It did come to a backup email address that I did use with Nationwide.
