UK privacy watchdog warns Google to fix privacy policies by September
Posted By Michael Garrity On July 6, 2013 @ 3:18 AM In World Wide Web | No Comments
ICO’s primary complaint is that Google simply doesn’t do enough to give its UK users important information about how all of the data Google collects about them is going to be used, which ICO says brings up “serious questions about [Google's] compliance with the UK Data Protection Act.”
UK users aren’t allowed to opt-out of this policy if they want to use Google products, which is a major cause of consternation for ICO.
So far, Google hasn’t said whether it intends to comply with ICO’s warning and change its policy by the deadline.
