EU warns Google should change its privacy policies
Regulators for data protection in the European Union said that, after analyzing the new privacy policies that Google launched in March , the Mountain View company must make changes to fit the bill.
According to authorities, the company should ask its users explicitly consent to unify all data across its services.
The 27 European agencies data protection, led by the French Authority for Data Protection (CNIL), concluded that Google does not provide sufficient information to users on how they use their data and offer them tools to control how in which these data are combined across all its services.
If Google does not implement these changes within the next three or four months, the dispute “will move to another phase, which is the economic sanctions,” said the director of the CNIL, Isabelle Falque-Pierrotin.
While by Google, its chief Privacy officer, Peter Fleischer, said the company has received and is reviewing the report, and that the company “is confident” that their privacy policies are within the regulations of European laws.
