    Abstract: In order to provide sensitive vehicle data of a first vehicle as anonymously as possible, the present disclosure relates to a method for the anonymized provision of the data of the first vehicle for a vehicle-external server device. According to a defined or definable condition, a decision is made between transmitting the data directly to the vehicle-external server device or transmitting the data to the vehicle-external server device via a second vehicle, which has a communication connection to the first vehicle. The data are then transmitted according to the decision. In n-hop anonymization, the data can be forwarded via an arbitrary number of vehicles as intermediaries or intermediate stations.
