• More confusion, just like everything else to do with Velon.

      I have to admit the whole Velon thing has been a shambles from the start IMO

        This issue looks like a media beat up to me. It seems to me that what Velon is aiming to do is not going to be easy, and success is by no means guaranteed – as it never is with new things – but what in particular has been a shambles, as you see it? It’s really easy put things down, but are you sure it’s not a good idea?

    Great reporting and thank you. Looks like tuttobici really had the scoop. If Velon truly has the riders’ best interest at heart, they could easily include a clause that says: ” the majority of the proceeds of the image rights will be distributed evenly to the rider’s in addition to salary (possibly into a retirement/benefits fund).” This along with other protections of personal information and data would be a show of good faith from the teams. Seems only fair since the riders should benefit from their hard work.

    This is probably way beyond what anyone at CT has any clue about, but the ECJ (European Court of Justice) just struck down the data transfer Safe Harbor, which may in fact greatly control how any of this type of data collected within the EU can be transferred out, especially given that the data looks like it will contain PII (personally identifiable information). You guys may want to get in touch with an attorney in the EU for a total perspective.

    Sorry Velon, you still have some explaining to do:

    If the document was just a sample for advice, why wasn’t it marked as such?

    Why are there no disclaimers or notes in the document citing reliance on local law?

    Do you know how the document got into the hands of the media, the CPA, etc?

    Why was your initial response a denial rather than a thorough explanation?

    Is there a similar piece of “advice” for team staff and contractors?

    Even if this was just for advice, you have handled this matter in a very sloppy matter, which is not going to build trust among your constituents, their riders, staff, fans, etc. You have an uphill battle to begin with; congratulations on adding another boulder to your load.

    It sounds like Brian Cookson has been doing a bit of consulting for Velon on the side of his day job.

    This sort of half-baked attempt at arse-covering has his fingerprints all over it.
