Submission + - Google Fined Over Street View Privacy Breach (ispyce.com)

autospa writes: Google received its first ever fine for improperly gathering and storing data for its Street View application on Monday when it was penalized by France's privacy watchdog. The euro100,000 ($141,300) penalty — the largest ever by French body CNIL — sanctions Google for collecting personal data from Wi-Fi networks — including e-mails, web browsing histories and online banking details — from 2007 to 2010 through its roaming camera-mounted cars and bicycles. The fine is the first against Google over the data-gathering, which more than 30 countries have complained about. At least two other European countries are considering fines, while some others have ruled against penalizing Google.
