The privacy policy that Google implemented in March of 2012 violates Dutch privacy laws, the countrys data protection agency has found. In a report issued today, the DPA said that Google has no legal ground to use things like tracking cookies to collect and unify information about website visitors. The combining of data by Google from and about multiple services and third-party websites for the purpose of displaying personalized ads, personalization of services, product development and analytics constitutes a major intrusion into the privacy of the users involved, reads an informal English translation. Google spins an invisible web of our personal data, without our consent.
