ubersonic writes: While insurance companies never seem to respect the privacy of their customers, European insurer Uniqua reached a new low with the introduction of PAYD (pay as you drive) recently. Uniqa's customers who choose the PAYD-model are going to have a NaviBox called "SafeLine" installed in their cars. The small box contains a GPS receiver and a GSM unit, which forwards once daily real-time information to a central computer. The users premiums are then calculated on the base of this data. The personal data protecting organization ARGE-Daten (Arbeitsgemeinschaft Daten, Engl.: Working group "Data Protection") is deeply concerned about the fairness of the new appliance. No one knows for what else this data might be used in the future.
