Will my black box driving data be passed onto other companies?
Some drivers worry that their insurer will pass on or sell the data gathered by their black box or telematic device to rival companies, banks, or law enforcement. A survey conducted by LexisNexis Risk Solutions found that around half of drivers have concerns about privacy with telematics policies.
But these concerns are unfounded. Strict data protection laws prohibit car insurance providers from sharing information gathered about your driving with third parties, including rival insurers or any other companies. They also won’t hand over detail about your driving to the police unless they’re required to do so by law, such as if a police inquiry is launched following a serious crime or traffic accident.
