Given that the information that can be gathered by GPS tracking devices is deemed to be personal data, this must be handled according to GDPR – a European legislation that stipulates that such data cannot be collected and used without permission. Drivers must be aware that they are being tracked and have given legal consent. Moreover, tracking employees is only legally permissible during working hours.
