"The data protection regulation will provide among others:
2. A right to data portability
It will be easier to transfer individuals’ personal data between service providers. This right might have an impact for instance on data protection issues affecting Internet of Things technologies when an individual purchases a new connected car and wants to “port” his profile from the old to the new vehicle."
