PARIS — The French data protection authority said on Tuesday that
Google’s new privacy policy appeared to violate European Union law.

Times Topic: Google Inc.
Google announced the new policy last month, billing it as a way to
streamline and simplify the privacy practices it employed worldwide
across about 60 different online services, and to introduce greater
clarity for users.

But the French privacy agency, the National Commission for Computing
and Civil Liberties, said in a letter to Larry Page, Google’s
co-founder and chief executive, that the proposed policy was murky in
the details of how the company would use private data. Google and other
Internet companies gather personal information in an effort to build
anonymous profiles of users, helping them to sell advertising.

“Rather than promoting transparency, the terms of the new policy and
the fact that Google claims publicly that it will combine data across
services raises fears about Google’s actual practices,” the letter from
the French privacy agency, known as CNIL, said. “Our preliminary
investigation shows that it is extremely difficult to know exactly
which data is combined between which services for which purposes, even
for trained privacy professionals.”

The warning to Google carries potential implications for other
European Union countries, because in this case the French regulator was
acting at the request of an advisory panel to the European Commission

==========NH:
Dear Larry and Sergey: [Achoo! ]’. ‘/.]

Whatever the system in place now is, it put a jockey under ware ad up
on my browser for weeks and weeks after I placed an order or two –
thereby making me reject and develop a dislike for the brand being
forced upon me so much.

You’ve got to get real and incorporate choices into the ads so you can
reinforce the ad to go deeper, or ask it to go wider, or ask it to go
random – because different people have different tastes about patterns
they like to see.

Being the righteous people you are is the biggest help to me. Stop the
information apartheid. Give we the users more control. Let us get to
any percentage of our search results by entering the percentage instead
of having to scroll in ten page lumps.

What else? Put me on the board of directors, or hire me as a
consultant. I could use the money. I need to travel more, and it would
certainly help me hire an assistant or two to get publishing regularly
instead of dusting away on the key board.

Right?

Who was kind enough to come buy and ask me to use Google way back in
the early days. You and Serge were kind enough to walk by. Why do you,
and so many others, continue to feed off of me, without overtly
rewarding me?

Sure, I’ve assigned myself the toughest job description I could, but
that’s no reason to not do some charity in my direction.

Truly,

Bill, aka, haji MAO-AIB

The warning to Google carries potential implications for other
European Union countries, because in this case the French regulator was
acting at the request of an advisory panel to the European Commission,
which asked the French agency to conduct an initial assessment of the
Google privacy changes. The new rules were set to come into effect on
Thursday.

But the French privacy agency, the National Commission for Computing

Internet companies gather personal information in an effort to build

“Rather than promoting transparency, the terms of the new policy and

the French privacy agency, known as CNIL, said. “Our preliminary
investigation shows that it is extremely difficult to know exactly

The warning to Google carries potential implications for other
European Union countries, because in this case the French regulator was
acting at the request of an advisory panel to the European Commission,
which asked the French agency to conduct an initial assessment of the
Google privacy changes. The new rules were set to come into effect on
Thursday.

Meanwhile, the commission is in the process of overhauling its privacy
rules to bring them in line with the era of the Internet and cloud
computing. The commissioner in charge of privacy, Viviane Reding, has
called for streamlined privacy rules, which currently vary widely
across the European Union, with separate enforcement bodies like the
French privacy agency overseeing national guidelines.

Google is also facing an antitrust investigation in Brussels, where
the European Commission is scrutinizing its dominant position in
Internet search. The privacy policies of individual Google services,
especially its StreetView mapping feature, have also been investigated
in a number of European Union countries.

Ms. Reding had already asked Google to delay adoption of the new
privacy policy while regulators assessed its compatibility with
European Union law. But the company reiterated on Tuesday that it had
no intention of doing so.

“We are confident that our new simple, clear and transparent privacy
policy respects all European data protection laws and principles,”
Peter Fleischer, Google’s chief privacy counsel, wrote in a letter to
the French privacy agency. He said the company had tried unsuccessfully
to meet with the agency to discuss the changes.

“Like all companies, we have struggled with the conundrum of how to
pursue both of the CNIL’s recommendations: How to ‘streamline and
simplify’ our privacy policies, while at the same time providing
‘comprehensive information’ to our users,” Mr. Fleischer’s letter
states.

The French privacy agency said in its letter that it would send Google
a “full questionnaire” about its privacy policies by mid-March.

In addition to issuing warnings, the French privacy agency has the
power to fine companies up to 300,000 euros ($400,000) for privacy
breaches in France. It can also seek court orders to try to stop
companies from engaging in practices that are deemed to violate data
protection laws. Enforcement in other European countries would be up to
individual data protection authorities.

Google’s new privacy policy applies to services like the YouTube
online video platform, the Android mobile phone software and the Google
search engine. Users were notified of the changes via e-mail and
postings on the relevant sites, among other methods.

The proposed changes have also attracted scrutiny in the United
States, where privacy advocates have urged Congress to look into the
new policy.

Big Brother Watch, a British privacy advocate, published a study on
Tuesday that said only 12 percent of Google users had read the new
policy. Forty-seven percent were unaware of the changes, the study
showed.

“Google is putting advertisers’ interests before user privacy and
should not be rushing ahead before the public understand what the
changes will mean,” the group said in a statement posted on its Web
site.
