EU regulators threaten privacy repression against Google

Google may face a crackdown coordinated by regulators Privacy in Europe before the summer unless the Web giant brings radical changes in the way it handles user data.

Privacy watchdog of France said today that Google had not yet respond with "accurate and effective" responses to a dozen recommendations adopted unanimously by the 27 national regulators last October and therefore could face a coordinated "enforcement action." The Article 29 Working Group, a group responsible for protecting data from each of the Member States should decide on the proposal at the end of the month.

"The European authorities for data protection have noticed that Google has not provided accurate and efficient responses to their recommendations," the National Commission for Computing and Liberties (CNIL), the organization that led aggressively probe against Google, said in a statement today.

"In this context, the European authorities for data protection are committed to act and pursue their investigations. Consequently, they propose to set up a working group, led by the CNIL in order to coordinate their repressive should take place before the summer, "CNIL said.

Google has denied that its privacy policy is a violation of Community law.

"Our privacy policy complies with EU law and allows us to create more simple, more efficient services," Google said in a statement. "We are fully committed to the CNIL throughout this process, and we will continue to do so in the future. "

That the Web giant was not in compliance with EU law, the group suggested that Google should strengthen the consent sought to combine the data for improving services and advertising, to provide a centralized system opt-out solution and adapt the rules of combination to distinguish between security and advertising. Google also warned not to specify how long it stores user data. After issuing its recommendations in October, regulators have given four months Google changes its privacy policy to resolve problems that may violate the laws of the member countries.

Google has raised the ire of privacy advocates in January 2012 rewriting privacy policy which would grant it explicit rights to "combine personal information" across multiple products and services. Simplified privacy policy, which would replace 60 privacy policies for different services would only enhance the user experience, Google argues.

Opponents continued to change, saying the move was designed to increase the effectiveness of the advertising business. EU officials requested that the deadline implementation of Google's new privacy policy until the results can be analyzed, but the Web giant has refused, saying she had thoroughly pre-informed Privacy regulators on changes and no objection was raised at that time.
