That was the shocking claim made today by automotive retail solutions provider MotorVise.

GDPR – or General Data Protection Regulation – comes into effect on May 25, replacing the EU’s Data Protection Directive 1995 and the UK’s Data Protection Act 1998. Firms deemed to have misused customer data after it is introduced – including contacting them without their permission – face heavy fines.
