MotoRad is an award-winning company that develops, manufactures, and supplies thermostat solutions, cap solutions, and engine management solutions for the OEM and Aftermarket industries. MotoRad has partnered with the Auto Care Association and Automotive Aftermarket Suppliers Association (AASA) to promote the “Your Car. Your Data. Your Choice.” Campaign. There are two live showings airing this Saturday morning:
- The C.A.R. Show: airing live at 8:30 am Eastern
- Sam’s Garage: airing live at 9:05 am Eastern
The “Your Car. Your Data. Your Choice.” Campaign was created to inform car owners about the data that their vehicles produce with vital repair and maintenance information. Data is stored on a computer inside the car, and people need to be aware that they can control who accesses the information. With newer cars wirelessly transmitting data straight to car manufacturers, the auto manufacturers have control over the information. This information can limit the number of places that people can take their cars for service. What this means to car owners is that they could be stuck with a more expensive option or have to take their vehicles somewhere that is inconvenient for them. Auto manufacturers are also able to share and sell data with third parties without the car owners’ consent or knowledge.
“The “Your Car. Your Data. Your Choice.” Campaign has been created to inform car owners of how their personal information is being collected, whether they give consent or not. This is an important campaign to make people aware of the data stored inside their cars and how it is being used,” says Brandon Kight, VP – Marketing for MotoRad.
