Issue remain, however.
The company notably did not say it would reverse its plans to be able to sell data collected from existing subscribers, however. The GM unit could track a vehicle’s speed, for example, as well as its location. Though OnStar officials insist they currently have no plans to do so, such data might be sold to a marketer interested in reaching motorists who might be passing a shopping mall, or to pitch a nearby brand of gasoline.
Despite assertions to the contrary from OnStar, it appears they can still enter into marketing agreements to share their customer’s information.
We’ll continue to monitor this situation.
