GDPR – Is the automotive industry compliant?

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) becomes enforceable from 25th May 2018 and it has far reaching implications for every business that collects, processes and stores personal data. That includes the vast majority of the automotive industry, from car retailers to manufacturers, motor garages to aftercare product providers.

We outline the extended rights being given to EU citizens when it comes to the management and use of their personal information, as well as the responsibilities and liabilities of those involved in collecting, storing and processing that data.
