WASHINGTON – The Information Technology Industry Council (ITI), the global voice for the tech industry, representing 60 of the world’s leading technology companies, issued the following statement today from President and CEO Dean Garfield on the consumer data privacy principles released by the auto industry:

"Cars are increasingly digital and incorporate technologies that are transforming our driving experience by providing greater convenience, more efficiency, and safety.  These advances will grow exponentially as customers gain confidence in how their cars are connected. With that in mind, the privacy principles issued by the Alliance of Automobile Manufacturers and the Alliance of Global Automakers are a welcome self-regulatory effort that establishes rules of the road for information gathered in vehicles."
