Germany: Pay-As-You-Drive-Insurance – First German Data Protection Authority Issues Requirements

Telematics-based pay-as-you-drive insurance is a new, innovative and not yet proven product from the insurance industry. This new product collects information about the driving behavior associated with the vehicle and therefore raises privacy issues for the drivers. The Commissioner for Data Protection and Freedom of Information for North Rhine-Westphalia is the first German data protection authority to evaluate a pay-as-you-drive product and has recently published its requirements for data protection and data security compliance.
