GAP(Guaranteed Auto Protection) We will follow the OCC's opinion in that as long as the credit provider indemnifies the debt cancellation agreement, it will not be regulated as insurance. However, any policies purchased by the credit provider to cover its obligations are considered to be insurance and will be regulated as such.    
VSC (Vehicle Service Contracts) We consider anything other than the manufacturer or seller warranting its own product to be the business of insurance and regulate it as such.
