Clearly stated in the fine print maybe. If you watch their ads, its evident they are implying (not stating of course) that if you get Carfax report, you'll know if the car has been in accident or had major repairs.

I've checked Carfax on vehicles I've owned, and they always were clean despite there being police reports, insurance claims, and some pretty intense dealer work. If Allstate and State Farm insurance claims don't count as "data providers", who does?
