Ola scooter alleged for data breach
Balwant Singh met with an accident on 15th of April while he was on his scooter. Apparently, Singh blamed the scooter’s regenerative brakes for this accident.
The Ola scooter company in response to his allegation shared a telemetry data that rather suggested that the accident took place because of the person’s rash driving. Seeing this, Singh reacted and filed a complaint against the company for uploading his data on a social media platform without his permission.
As per reports, Balwant Singh issued a notice to the company saying, “you are hereby notified to take down the telemetry data of my scooter from your social media platform accounts across the internet at the earliest. failure to which i will be bound to take legal action against your company.” He further added that, “Ola and i had signed an agreement of sharing data for your private access. The posting of telemetry data online in the public medium is a breach of privacy agreement between me the user and Ola Electric the seller.”
