Call for Participation in Automotive Privacy Principles Community Group

The Automotive Privacy Principles Community Group has been launched:

Vehicles are becoming increasingly connected, enabling rich data and useful services. A major obstacle to transportation’s information transformation is better protection of personal privacy. The Mozilla Foundation properly called in out in their assessment It’s Official: Cars Are the Worst Product Category We Have Ever Reviewed for Privacy.

The goal of this Community Group is to create guiding principles specific to the automotive industry and to work in conjunction with COVESA in prototyping and promoting appropriate solutions.

In order to join the group, you will need a W3C account. Please note, however, that W3C Membership is not required to join a Community Group.

This is a community initiative. This group was originally proposed on 2024-01-03 by Ted Guild. The following people supported its creation: Ted Guild, Ulf Bjorkengren, Rudolf Streif, Ansgar Gerlicher, Paul Boyes. W3C’s hosting of this group does not imply endorsement of the activities.

The group must now choose a chair. Read more about how to get started in a new group and good practice for running a group.

We invite you to share news of this new group in social media and other channels.

If you believe that there is an issue with this group that requires the attention of the W3C staff, please email us at

Thank you,
W3C Community Development Team
