Bus Eireann May Sell Your Browsing History

Customers using free WiFi onboard Bus Eireann coaches could see their browsing data sold off to marketing companies.

The operator offers a free wifi service to all customers and hundreds of thousands of commuters use the wireless service each week.

Marketing companies may be allowed to buy the data of the customers using the service as it may provide valuable marketing analytic for external companies.

In a document published by the CIE group who owns Bus Eireann along with Dublin Bus & Irish Rail, said that it wants to "generate revenue directly from the provision of on-board WiFi, including by way of advertising."

This kind of revenue generating is done often by companies but it DOES NOT sell any personal data like names or passwords.
