EU to Reject Google Privacy Changes

Google has to change its privacy policy, the French data commissioner will tell the search-engine giant Tuesday, according to sources. The ruling reached by European Union commissioners, according to The Guardian, could have wide-ranging impact and could inspire a spat of new sanctions against the company by other regulators. The probe by the French commissioner into Google’s privacy policy came about after users complained about new privacy policies introduced in March. Google did not provide a way for users to opt out of the changes—a decision that regulators now say was a breach of EU law.
