Google Wasn’t Fined for Street View Data Theft

The search giant was ordered to get rid of information “mistakenly collected” by its Street View cars mapping the UK. However, the ICO has let Google off without a fine. The outfit has promised that it would be paying close attention to the company’s operations and wouldn’t hesitate to take action in case of more privacy breaches.

According to the ICO statement, its decision over Google’s data snooping, which saw Street View cars collecting up private data about personal Wi-Fi, was correct. The outfit decided that collection of payload information occurred in result of “procedural failings” and a “serious lack of management oversight including checks on the code”. Still, the outfit admitted there wasn’t enough evidence to prove that in that case the company deliberately wanted to collect personal information.

The critics pointed out that data collection was central to Google’s business model. Then, during initial investigations, more personal data was found, which the company promised to securely destroy. However, it later turned out that the company had held onto the information.

The outfit’s head of enforcement claim that the early days of Google Street View are an example of what can go wrong if tech firms fail to understand how their products use private data. He added that the punishment for this violation would have been worse if this payload information had not been contained. At the time, the search giant simply pinned the non-consensual collection of private information on rogue code and distanced itself from culpability.

It is clear that Google has gotten off lightly in this situation. Taking into account previously imposed financial penalties, in case the ICO did issue a fine, it wouldn’t have been much more than a slap on the wrist, considering the company’s relative size. However, the ICO announced that it was still investigating whether the company’s privacy policy itself complied with the Data Protection Act. The investigation in question was running concurrently with others across the European Union and was meant to assess whether the search giant was honest about how it uses personal data. The ICO pledged to approach the engine “shortly” in order to confirm preliminary findings.

It wasn't us (google) that wrote that code to check for personal info whilest looking for WiFi signals it was someone else

Biggest_Baddest_Wolf avatarYup, surely Google didn't deliberately collect private info about personal wifi.
Also, Tyson didn't deliberately bite Holyfield's ear, and OJ didn't deliberately repeatedly stab.
And Bill Clinton didn't deliberately put his presidential cigar in Lewinsky.
Oh.... wait.....
