Google Says UK Privacy Law Doesn’t Apply
PRIVACY LAW—UKAugust 20, 2013
Google has told British consumers in a privacy claim that it doesn’t have to answer to UK courts and the country’s privacy laws don’t apply to the company, IDG News Service reports. Google will fight UK Safari users’ right to bring a case in the country and will force the plaintiffs to instead file the suit in California. The plaintiffs are seeking damages, disclosure and an apology from Google for allegedly circumventing users’ security settings and tracking them on Apple’s Safari browser, the report states.
