How does Volkswagen Group of America, Inc. (VWAG), a car company, get accused of breaking the Washington Privacy Act (WPA)? According to this class action, the problem is certain infotainment systems in VW vehicles. The complaint alleges that when a smartphone is connected to a certain kind of VW infotainment system, it downloads and stores a copy of all text messages on the smartphone. The messages are not accessible to you, and you may not even know they are preserved in your vehicle; but the complaint claims they are accessible to law enforcement and other regulatory or private parties who might want to investigate you.
