Car Data - Who does OWN, HAVE and USE it?

Brussels, 21 November 2019

Ladies and Gentlemen,

Dear Friends of EAC,

Modern cars are not merely means of transport, but increasingly data producers and data carriers. Even before the engine starts to buzz, the manufacturer already receives a multitude of data from countless sensors installed by him in the vehicle, all of which are generated by the car driver and are therefore considered to be personal, unless they are completely anonymised. The question at issue is now whether they belong to the car owner, the driver or de facto the manufacturer? One thing is crystal-clear: Thanks to the monopoly over the exclusive control of the access and delivery channels in the cars, they come into the possession of the manufacturers that use them primarily for their own product optimisation. At the same time, vehicle data is of vital importance for the future of the automotive aftermarket and services sector, whose establishment and development are being hampered by monopoly prices on the part of the manufacturer. There are also important questions that arise from the perspective of consumer welfare: Who may, can and should have access to my vehicle and access to my data? Which regulatory approach does offer maximum transparency, security and comfort? Can I still choose my service provider as an autonomous and mature driver?

EAC cordially invites you to join the discussion on these topics at the lunch debate
