EU tells Google to respect users’ privacy
London: The European Union has reportedly asked Internet search giant Google to modify the way it gathers the personal information of users.
Twelve recommendations have been outlined in a letter signed by 24 of the EU’s 27 data regulators.
“Combining personal data on such a large scale creates high risks to the privacy of users,” the letter is expected to say.
"Therefore, Google should modify its practices when combining data across services for these purposes,” it will add.
According to the BBC, those recommendations are said to include a focus on personal information and browsing records, as well as the collection of location-based data and credit card details.
The EU authorities launched an investigation into the company`s data collection practices nine-months ago.
Since March, Google has combined data from sites like YouTube and Gmail to better target its advertising.
Google has maintained the policy complies with EU law.
But regulators immediately raised concerns about the changes when they were implemented earlier this year.
