LITTLE ROCK, Ark  --Little Rock-based Acxiom Corporation is denying allegations that it violated the privacy of airline passengers in taking part in an anti-terrorism study.

Acxiom provided the information to Torch Concepts of Huntsville, Alabama, which produced the study with information from Acxiom and JetBlue Airways Corp. at Queens, New York.

The Electronic Privacy Information Center, a nonprofit privacy group, filed a complaint Monday with the Federal Trade Commission against Acxiom and JetBlue.

An Acxiom spokesman says the data company followed its privacy principles and wasn't deceptive in its business practices.

The privacy group says Acxiom overstepped its bounds because the information was for a study, not an investigation.
