Concerns raised over data-collecting cars

Vice president for marketing of Ford heightened privacy fears in US as he says the company collects data from cars.

    We have been hearing for months about how the NSA collects data on Americans' phone calls.

    Now, there are concerns that the auto industry is also collecting information about its customers.

    Ford's global vice president for marketing said in a television interview that the company collects data from all new cars in the US, using a GPS sensor.
