According to The Associated Press, for the unauthorized surveillance of users on Google sued by several people. Future decisions may affect all players in the technology industry.
The search giant continued to collect information about the movements of users, even if they disabled all possible options in settings. Some California residents saw this as a violation of privacy laws and filed lawsuits against Google.
At the moment we know about three claims, alleging that the search, the Corporation has caused its users harm, committing a blatant violation of social norms.
The court should answer the question whether Google is obliged to obtain legal consent from each client to the collection and storage of information and whether the company is to provide all the data to collect information in a single document, which will be placed in the public domain.
If the claims are met, it will create a precedent under which a California court may revoke a license for any company that violates privacy laws.
