Uber handing passenger data to UK police to keep its license, report says

Uber has won the backing of the British police to keep its license in return for handing over thousands of pieces of intelligence on drivers, passengers and journeys each year, a report has revealed. According to court documents accessed by UK’s The Times, police receive passengers’ and drivers’ private data from Uber to tackle child exploitation, human trafficking, and drug dealing in the UK.

Drug dealers, human traffickers and organized crime are all using Uber, apparently. Maybe now the Black Cabs can claw back the Criminals who can't afford a vehicle market.

I can see this from both view points but I'm not exactly keen on my private info being shared when I'm not breaking the law.

No freedom of speech and now no right to privacy. Oh, the reasons all sound good but do you really expect the government to keep its word? These are the same people who fought so hard to protect grooming gangs.

Handing over private data is an oxymoron. If it's handed over then immediately it is no longer private. Enough with the euphemisms, just report "Privacy dead in UK" "If you care about your privacy then don't do what UK did: outsource, insource, poison, mislead, misdiagnose, mistreat, neglect, join EU, normalize pedophillia sharia law idiocracy alcoholism bla bla bla" You get the point, fuuuuuuuuck the elitist transhuman tecnocracy being pushed through the UN with the help of the chicoms, eu, nato, deepstate, cia, fbi, google facebook bill and melinda gates john hopkins satanic bleurghhhhhhhhh

Breach of privacy. People shouldn't be documented when travelling in a cab

Sounds like the British police want an excuse to take people's information.
