Google Snubs EU’s Warnings, Introduces New Policy

Despite being warned by the EU that the new privacy policy could cause violation in the European law, Google Inc. has implemented the same, reveals an up-to-date report. The report has found that the company has merged almost 60 guidelines for its varied sites and has made a single policy in return.

It has been revealed by the report that Google has taken the step ignoring the order and caution of the EU. According to Google's statement, its new and fresh step would help in adapting better search results.

The report has also found that privacy watchdog CNIL of France had also urged the company to halt its plan of bringing forth a new privacy policy. However, the internet firm Google Inc. avoided its request as well and decided to continue with the roll out of the same. According to the new change to be introduced, platforms like YouTube, Gmail and Blogger would have access to data collected by any of the Google services.

The move made by the search giant has raised concerns amongst the CNIL and EU data authorities, says the report, as they doubt the lawfulness of such processing. Also, they suspect that the new move would not adhere to European data protection legislation. It is being said that the regulators have therefore also launched an investigation throughout Europe.

While Google is being accused of defying the EU law, its global privacy counsel Peter Fleischer, has claimed in its defense, "As we've said several times over the past week, while our privacy policies will change on 1st March, our commitment to our privacy principles is as strong as ever". He said that any of the CNIL's concerns would be happily entertained by him.

The data regulators have told that questions regarding changes would be put before Google by the mid of March, the report concludes.
