CBP: Google privacy requirements conflict with Dutch law

Google violates its new privacy policy, the Dutch privacy legislation. This has the Data Protection concluded. The way Google asks users for permission, is not true, according to CBP.

google Since the new privacy policy of Google, which were announced in January 2012 and a few months later entered the business data of users who throws out various services collects in a reservoir, where they were previously still separate databases. That change was made ​​without users were informed about it well and without it was asked for permission so writes CBP in a research report.

“Our biggest concern is that Google does not clearly indicate what data they collect and what exactly that is collected,” said spokeswoman Lysette Rutgers College. “The point is that people have control over their personal data.” That is not so, will the CBP. Moreover, there is no option to refuse. Processing those personal data Google was not available for comment.

“Data on example queries, location data, and watched videos can be combined as the various services serve very different purposes with each other,” said CBP. In the Netherlands, private information collected may be used only for the purpose for which it was collected, unless someone deliberately gives permission for something else to use the data.

Google users are informed of the change of the privacy policy, but that way of informing is “fragmented and inconsistent” because Google has not made clear on the website of his daughter YouTube the data that are collected from the privacy conditions also could be used in others. Google services

The fact that Google users can also follow through cookies on other websites, thereby profiles of individuals who compose them and then serves ads to size, without having to ask permission CBP calls a “major breach of the privacy of the users concerned ‘ .

Although already established that the Dutch privacy legislation has been violated, the CBP has not yet decided how it will occur. CBP Google has now invited to a hearing. Thereafter, the privacy watchdog may decide to impose sanctions. Thus, a penalty may be imposed if Google does not change the privacy terms.
