International Privacy Experts Adopt Recommendations for Connected Vehicles

8 01 2020

The International Working Group on Data Protection adopted new recommendations to protect privacy as vehicles become increasingly connected. The Berlin-based Working
October 4, 2018Group includes data protection authorities who assess emerging privacy challenges. As cars today connect both to the Internet and other vehicles “more and more personal data will be collected and processed by the vehicles and will become accessible to third parties,” the Working Group paper explains. The Working Group recommended that vehicle sensors not store personal data of persons outside the vehicle, allow drivers to opt out of non-essential data collection, and minimize personal data collection. In comments to NHTSA, EPIC called for national safety standards for connected cars. EPIC also underscored the privacy risks of modern vehicles in a recent amicus brief to the Supreme Court. In 2017, EPIC hosted a meeting of the IWG in Washington, D.C. at the Goethe-Institut.
