This study examines the Danish Data Protection Agency (DDPA)’s oversight with the danish taxi company Taxa 4x35. The study illuminates the underlying causes for the taxi agency’s police report by DDPA in March 2019. Through the TRIN model, we examine the technology used by Taxa 4x35, DDS PathFinder, in relation to personal data and The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Furthermore, we analyze the case through Shoshana Zuboff’s theory on Surveillance Capitalism and discuss the potential consequences of collecting large amounts of personal user data, using Langdon Winner’s writings on artifacts political character and Technological Determinism. An interview with Senior Manager for Digital Trust and Information Security Governance at Price-waterhouseCoopers (PwC), offers a corporate perspective on the case, increasing the project group’s understanding of the general subject matter. Finally, the project concludes that it can be problematic for corporations to use technologies that have been developed in a different legislative context and we find this clash to be one of the primary reasons behind Taxa 4x35’s violation of the GDPR.
