Crazy: @chbmeyer says he asked what kind of personal data his car collects & shares with the company.

Here you go, dystopian shit:

- Charging history
- Temperature
- Unique car & battery IDs
- Kilometres driven (battery)
- Operational state of engine
- Driving & parking history
- Data on speed, acceleration & deceleration
- Number of times ABS has been activated
- When airbags are deactivated
- Name, first name & email of owner
- Other electric vehicles in vicinity
- Geolocation

@ilumium

That's fine, they don't collect passengers' names and addresses. Phew.

@chbmeyer

@Arco Idk; best ask @chbmeyer who has done the data subject request.

@xuv @ilumium @chbmeyer Worth saying that, due to the GDPR, they can't actually _collect_ this info without consent - my Zoe had been harrassing me on power-on for months begging me to let it share this data with goodness-knows-who, but I always refused. It appears to have stopped harrassing me after a service, I think they updated the firmware to remove the nags maybe.

@seachaint @xuv @ilumium @chbmeyer or they just clicked "yes" and you don't know yet… better check

@oreolek @xuv @ilumium @chbmeyer Oh I did! I fully expect such silliness.
My dad has a Nissan and it asks on _every_ journey even if you capitulate and consent for one, apparently they are aware that a different driver might be in the car next time but the data is so so precious :picardfacepalm:

@seachaint @xuv @chbmeyer This is really discomforting. Looks like the car industry is a data wild west at the moment with little oversight if any. After has gotten the Big Brother Award in Germany for non-conpliance with , I was hoping there would maybe be a reaction from regulators. But perhaps everyone wants electric cars to succeed so badly that nobody dares to act.

@ilumium @xuv @chbmeyer If other EU countries are anything like Ireland, their data regulators are underfunded and already swamped with work.

@xuv @ilumium @chbmeyer

Yes, deeply disturbing that the vehicle can even be aware of that. And yet, much of the discussion of computer-driven cars requires intercommunication between vehicles on the road, so that they can let each other know where they are. The implications are chilling.

@Kelv1n

Sandero 2021 model.
They do have emergency call system + GPS.

@ilumium @chbmeyer

@sebsauvage @Kelv1n @chbmeyer If you're based in the EU, would you have time to send a complaint to your local ? I think companies really need to start feeling the heat.

@ilumium

No response on twitter.
Web form can't take my complaint.
Email responded \o/... that the email address is no longer valid /o\

I'm getting tired of all this.

@Kelv1n @chbmeyer

@sebsauvage @Kelv1n @chbmeyer Hm, that's too bad. Some DPAs like Belgium only accept paper complaints. And cnil.fr/fr/adresser-une-plaint also accepts paper as an option.

@ilumium @chbmeyer

that's so creepy. I always found this scene in modern family unsettling, and your toot solidifies that feeling:
