Ensure GDPR Compliance When Tracking Your Fleet

As telematics systems collect and store personal data, GDPR guidelines need to be applied. Learn about the processes you need to follow when handling potentially sensitive data.

Safeguard your employees’ information

Avoid stiff penalties for data breaches by understanding what your responsibilities are when using a vehicle tracking system. In this guide, you’ll establish the questions you need to ask, such as:

  • Are you collecting data for a legitimate reason?
  • How is the data stored and protected?
  • How long are you keeping sensitive data?
  • Are you able to demonstrate your GDPR compliance?


Justify your reasons for collecting data by establishing your company’s legitimate interest or by gaining the consent of your drivers.
