The EU is after Google

Google might have a coordinated crackdown by privacy regulators before the summer.To stop this Google must make lots of changes to how it manages user data.

France’s privacy watchdog said that Google hadn’t yet responded wet with “precise and effective” answers to many recommendations from several regulators in October.If they don’t respond they could face coordinated “repressive action”.The Article 29 Working Party(a group of data protection officials from each member states,who will probably be for the action)will vote on this on February 26th.

“European data protection authorities have noted that Google did not provide any precise and effective answers to their recommendations,” the Commission Nationale de l’Informatique et des Libertes (CNIL), the organization that has aggressively led the probe against Google,”The CILL said in a statement today.

In response Google said””Our privacy policy respects European law and allows us to create simpler, more effective services.We have engaged fully with the CNIL throughout this process, and we’ll continue to do so going forward.”

They said that they had broken the law,they also recommended that Google should strengthen the consent sought for combining data for the purposes of service improvement and advertising,provide an opt-out option and adapt the combination rules to distinguish between security and advertising.They were also warned about not clarifying how they store data.

Don’t say that they didn’t have that much time.They had four months.Plus,they didn’t have to do much.All they had to do was amend their private policy and address issues that could violate EU laws.Simple.

Google caught the attention of privacy advocates when they rewrote their privacy policy in January 2012 that would let Google “combine personal information”across lots of products and services.Google argued that it would make the experience more simple because there were 60 other private polices.

Opponents of the change sued,they argued that Google did so to improve its advertising effectiveness,EU officials ask if Google could delay the launch so the security implications could be analysed,however they declined.They said that it pre-briefed privacy regulators and there weren’t any objections at the time.

Well that’s the end of this post:(.But,was there a problem?Was there a mispelling?Did you think it was good?Well,leave the answers to all them in the comments below and like/follow my website.
