GM's OnStar now spying on your car for profit even after you unsubscribe?
If you're the owner of a fairly new General Motors product, you may want to take a close look at the most recent OnStar terms and conditions. As it turns out, the company has altered the parameters under which it can legally collect GPS data on your vehicle.
Originally, the terms and conditions stated that OnStar could only collect information on your vehicle's location during a theft recovery or in the midst of sending emergency services your way. That has apparently changed. Now, OnStar says that it has the right to collect and sell personal, yet supposedly anonymous information on your vehicle, including speed, location, seat belt usage and other information....
I think that it should be against the law to sell or give away any personal information about a person that buys a car with onstar. We should refuse to buy the vehicles that are equipped with onstar. It sounds like BIG BROTHER is taking over. It's time to say that enough is enough.
