Submission + - Google topay record$22.5M fine on privacy (usatoday.com)

SternisheFan writes: "Google is paying a record $22.5 million fine to settle allegations that it broke a privacy promise by secretly tracking millions of Web surfers who use Apple's Safari browser. It's the largest fine that the FTC has imposed against a company for violating a previous agreement with the agency. Google, Inc. isn't admitting any wrongdoing in the latest settlement. The fine isn't over Google's data collection, but for misrepresenting what was happening. Last October, Google had signed a 20-year agreement that, among other things, included a company pledge not to mislead consumers about its privacy practices"
