Google 'in breach' of UK data privacy agreement
Posted in: Legal, Privacy & Security at 28/07/2012 18:22
Google has admitted that it had not deleted users' personal data gathered during surveys for its Street View service.
The data should have been wiped almost 18 months ago as part of a deal signed by the firm in November 2010.
Google has been told to give the data to the UK's Information Commissioner (ICO) for forensic analysis.
Google faces new Street View data controversy
Google is facing a fresh privacy blunder after it admitted it had not deleted all of the private data, including emails and passwords, it secretly collected from internet users around the UK.
The search giant was ordered in December 2010 to delete the private information hoovered up by its Street View cars from open Wi-Fi networks.
