France Seeks Data from Google Street View

Google's privacy problems with European governments continues


Google Inc. (GOOG) (GOOG) was asked to provide France's data-protection authority with information gathered through its Street View service, which it should have deleted after a 2011 fine.

The request came four days after the British privacy watchdog announced a similar request. Google, owner of the world's biggest search engine, informed European privacy agencies on July 27 that it still had some of the data, the French authority, known as CNIL, said on its website.
