Vehicle tracking is legal in the UK under certain circumstances. As a rule, any company using vehicle tracking will be collecting data about the driver as well as the vehicle. Meaning that vehicle tracking is governed by the data protection act and falls under the laws of processing personal data.Any company collecting data about a driver must adhere to strict rules regarding the use of the data collected. Primarily they must be respectful of the individual's privacy. This means they are unable to use the tracker to 'spy' on you or sell data about your whereabouts to a third party. Secondly, they must obtain your signed permission to fit your car with a vehicle tracker. They are required by law to give clear information about how the data held about your car and how it will be used.
