Google: nuovi termini di servizio e possibili conflitti in materia di protezione dei dati personali

Using your favourite Google services these days, you may have seen the notification that Google is consolidating its 60 privacy guidelines into a single policy that will function across all its services, including YouTube, Gmail and Google+. The EU data protection authority calls for Google to halt the new policy’s March 1 implementation. Regulators are concerned that Google may share personal data across all of its platforms without giving users the chance to give their prior consent. The Article 29 Working Party, an independent body that brings together data protection authorities from each of the EU’s 27 countries and the EU’s executive European Commission, said it needed to examine Google’s plans more thoroughly before the search group’s policy comes into effect on March 1. “Given the wide range of services you offer, and the popularity of these services, changes in your privacy policy may affect many citizens in most or all of the EU member states,” the group wrote to Google Chief Executive Larry Page on February 2. The European commissioner in charge of data protection, Viviane Reding, welcomed the move, saying it was a necessary to establish that EU data rules were being firmly applied. The relationship between Google+ (Google social networking site) and the search engine is widely regarded as one of the most controversial theme, considering Google’s plans to include photos and posts from users’ Google+ accounts in search results. Google is not obliged to wait for the conclusion of the Article 29 Working Group’s investigation before adopting its new policy, but has in the past sought to work with European authorities when they have raised concerns.
