Default Carmakers steal your trip data

Carmakers have been collecting and keeping data about where drivers have been.

A US government watchdog has found that owners of those cars cannot demand that the information be destroyed.

The Government Accountability Office found major automakers have differing policies about how much data they collect and how long they keep it.

According to the Detroit News, the carmakers collect location data in order to provide drivers with real-time traffic information, to help find the nearest gas station or restaurant, and to provide emergency roadside assistance and stolen vehicle tracking.
