Google Could Face Court over Street View in UK


Metro reports, Google faces possible court action from the UK’s information watchdog after further personal data was found to have been collected by its Street View cars. The Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) has demanded the internet search giant destroy four discs containing information it took from unsecured WiFi networks.

The watchdog handed the US company an enforcement notice, says Metro, after it admitted last year it had accidentally kept discs despite pledging to destroy all data collected this way. The ICO said if Google didn’t comply it could be in contempt of court, concludes Metro.
