§ 1698. Audit procedures; confidentiality of records. 1. For the purpose of verifying that a TNC is in compliance with the licensing requirements of the department, the department shall reserve the right to audit a sample of records that the TNC is required to maintain, upon request by the department that shall be fulfilled in no fewer than ten business days by the TNC. The sample shall be chosen randomly by the department in a manner agreeable to both parties. The audit shall take place at a mutually agreed location in New York state. Any record furnished to the department may exclude information that would tend to identify specific drivers or passengers.
2. The names and identifying information of TNC drivers that are received pursuant to this section shall be considered information which, if disclosed, would constitute an unwarranted invasion of personal privacy under the provisions of article six of the public officers law.
3. The department shall establish regulations for the filing of complaints against any TNC driver or TNC pursuant to this section.
