Who Owns the Data Your Car Collects?

An excellent article from Consumer Reports.Com. Some information gathered can improve driving performance and safety, but it could also result in an invasion of your privacy

The questions of who owns the data and what can be done with it have brought the privacy debate into the modern car cockpit. Much of the information coming from connected cars can produce safety benefits. But it has value for other purposes as well. There are more than 200 data points in vehicles today, with at least 140 viable business uses.

So far, neither Congress nor the DOT has instituted any new legal requirements for most car data. Many car companies say they are proactive about consumer privacy, but advocates are concerned about the prospect of an industry policing itself.
