EU Concerned Over Google & DoubleClick

24 Apr

A European Union advisory group is reviewing Google’s privacy policies over concerns with the Google’s proposed purchase of Double Click. Previously, Google promised to delete search history after two years, when EU and US privacy groups expressed concern over the collection of data.  

Data protection experts in the 27-member European Union “will prepare a letter” to Google on privacy issues, said Hans Tischler, a deputy to Peter Schaar, the chairman of the task force handling the case. 

The EU has a history of examining Google’s privacy policies. In January, EU member have been active in monitoring Google.
