Did you ever read terms of conditions of Facebook, Google or even this forum? I don't think so.Anybody who signs up for this service is nuts........Has anybody read through the terms and conditions?
They have to tell us, at least in Europe, otherwise they'd pay big fines. You can't change agreement without notifying the users here. If it's allowed in the US then well Mazda just abides to the law I guess?Once you sign on the dotted line, Mazda can change the agreement whenever it wants without telling you.
If you cancel your subscription they still collect data regardless.They can cancel your plan without reason and there is nothing you can do about it. They retain the right to forward collected data to the police if they think you are doing something illegal....using a remote start system to warm up your car is specifically mentioned.....
Exactly why there are OEM remote starters installed by the dealers. Oh come on.
In europe we do have law allowing to be forgotten. One mail and they have to wipe everything out. They will also get fined if the data is leaked.Mazda uses 3rd party providers and you have zero recourse against anything they do. There is no warranty that any information provided through the system is correct. Mazda can not be held liable for damages resulting from information errors even if they are aware that the information is incorrect.
No product liability claims for any reason, you cannot bring a claim against Mazda except states where such prohibitions are not allowed, and in the event that you do manage to win a claim against Mazda, you only get a refund for the cost of the Connectivity service.
There are companies paying fines up to 228 mln $ already for breaking this law.
The size of today's GDPR penalties has set the level against which all future data breach fines will be judged as global data breaches are pursued by multiple regulatory authorities and private citizens alike.
And big fines - again, at least in Europe.No product liability claims for any reason, you cannot bring a claim against Mazda except states where such prohibitions are not allowed, and in the event that you do manage to win a claim against Mazda, you only get a refund for the cost of the Connectivity service.
I recommend you go and read ToS of your most used apps. Even Windows 10 saves almost everything you do unless you use special software to turn telemetrics off. What Mazda will collect is most likely already being collected by other companies, or isn't of that significance compared to what those companies collect.[/QUOTE]
