US giant Google is under investigation over the processing of its users’ geolocation data, the Irish Data Protection Commission (DPC) announced on Tuesday.
Google’s mission is to deliver useful and rewarding experiences in which location data is essential. Whether it’s providing you with driving directions or search results that include items close to you, or information about restaurant opening times, location data improves the relevance and usefulness of Google’s services. Localization information also helps ensure essential functionality of certain products, such as choosing the appropriate language for a website or securing certain Google services.
