EU regulators threaten privacy crackdown against Google

February 18, 2013

Google may face a coordinated crackdown by privacy regulators in Europe before this summer unless the Web giant makes dramatic changes to how it manages user data.

France’s privacy watchdog said today that Google had yet to respond with “precise and effective” answers to a dozen recommendations unanimously adopted by 27 national regulators last October and as a result could face a coordinated “repressive action.” The Article 29 Working Party, a group of data protection officials from each member states, is expected to vote on the proposal at the end of the month.
