Sen. Schumer Calls for Investigation into “brazen” OnStar Privacy Violation

Senator Charles Schumer (D-NY) wrote a letter to the Federal Trade Commission requesting an investigation into OnStar's announcement that it would track the location of its customers' vehicles even after the customers canceled their service. OnStar also reserved the right to sell such locational information to advertisers. In an interview with FOX News last week, EPIC Executive Director Marc Rotenberg warned that the company would make data of former customers available to third parties.
