Google Fined 145,000 Euros by German Data Collection Agency

Google Fined 145,000 Euros by German Data Collection Agency
 
 

A big loss again. Google is fined of 145,000 euros for illegal collection of personal data through Street View mapping service. Its a big amount of $189,000 which is 0.002% of Google's net profit in year 2012.


A German regulatory company fined Google Inc. a huge amount of 145,000 euros ($189,000) today. The reason behind this fine is the illegal collection of WiFi data through cars taking photos for the Street View service.

The cars from 2008 to 2010 of Google took the data. Hamburg data regulator Johannes Caspar told in an e- mailed statement today that this data includes email contents, passwords, photos and chat protocols. He had reopened the probe after prosecutors dropped a related criminal case last year.

Caspar said that, "In my view, this is one of the biggest data protection rules violations known. Google’s “internal control mechanisms must have severely failed.”

Caspar also said that the fine is quite less in order to stop the data practices of corporations as large as Google. But this is actually the biggest fine ever imposed by the European regulators in Europe. The fined amount is the 0.002 percent of Google’s 2012 net profit amount of $10.7 billion.


According to nytimes, Mr. Caspar also said that, “As long as violations of data protection law are penalized with such insignificant sums, the ability of existing laws to protect personal privacy in the digital world, with its high potential for abuse, is barely possible.”

Google has been also fined by regulators around the world over in past. Like a French privacy regulator company fined Google over the Street View Wi-Fi breaches with an amount of 100,000- euro penalty in 2011.
