Dear all,

I'm Ingo Friese working with "Kantara Identity of things working group". In this area we got a privacy related question. I thought of asking you privacy experts for help, opinions or guidance.

Here is the use-case:

A thing (e.g. a car) produces data. Sometimes even privacy relevant data. (.e.g. a car could track where it was at what time).
A first (logical) attempt would be: The owner of the thing (device, car) owns the data.

But especially in automotive industry we have cases where manufacturer collect data and use them for statistics or additional services they offer to the user. They act as this data were their own.
I know a manufacturer of Trucks and harvesters that sell data collected in sensors of the harvester to the farmer. This sounds to me at least a bit strange.

Any thoughts?

Many thanks in advance!
