Google violated location privacy practices
OAKLAND – (INT) – California has reached a 93-million dollar settlement with Google resolving allegations that its location-privacy practices violated California consumer protection laws.

It was found that Google was deceiving users by collecting, storing, and using their location data for consumer profiling and advertising purposes without informed consent.

Attorney General Rob Bonta said “Google was telling its users one thing – that it would no longer track their location once they opted out – but doing the opposite and continuing to track its users’ movements for its own commercial gain.”

In addition to the settlement, Google has agreed to accept strong injunctive terms to deter future misconduct.
