Watchdogs in France and Spain have already told Google that the policy infringes local privacy laws -- French watchdogs warn that Google faces a fine of up €150,000. Germany is also investigating.
The Big G has been in trouble with privacy watchdogs before: Google was slapped on the wrist in several countries for capturing Wi-Fi details while driving around recording Street View, and was hit by a record fine for installing tracking cookies in Safari.
Is Google too cavalier with our data, or should the company be allowed to just get on with it? Tell me your thoughts in the comments or on our Facebook page.
