Does Tesla Violate Law When Disclosing a Customer’s Driving Data?
(By You Yunting)According to a media report, a woman recently claimed her rights at a car exhibition in Shanghai after Tesla disclosed part of driving data of her Tesla car, including time, VIN, speed, physical movement signal of the brake pedal and the pressure of master brake cylinder. The woman’s family claimed that Tesla infringed the car owner’s privacy and consumer rights and should cancel the data and apologize.
Let’s discuss whether it was illegal for Tesla to disclose the customer’s driving data to media. First, in my opinion, driving data are personal data of Tesla car drivers, so Tesla violated the Cyber Security Law when disclosing the driving data without the driver’s approval.
