European Officials Working on Google Privacy Censure

European data protection officials are drafting plans to censure Google over its online privacy policy if the company does not meet the demands of regulators to revise it. In a two-day closed-door meeting in Brussels of the European Union’s 27 national data protection officials, the group mapped a preliminary strategy, including the possibility of testing Google’s compliance with national privacy laws in countries like Ireland, Belgium and Finland, where the company operates data centers.
