What data does a consumer own or control in an automobile?
Cars are getting more and more modernize with complex computer and infotainment system to help users control and manage data as well as generate, store and analyze data from user’s usage.
In that sense, these are data that users own and control:
– EDR data: Automakers affirm they obtain vehicle owner consent in order to retrieve EDR data.
– Infotainment data: Consumers can control the type of information they enter into the infotainment system, such as music and contact lists.
– Personal subscription information: Consumers can control identifying information, including name, address, credit card numbers, telephone numbers and email addresses.
– Technical data: Automakers reserve the right to use technical data that is stored in, and relates to the functioning of, the vehicle.
