While the policy changes that Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOG) implemented last year “simplified and standardized” across all devices and all Google services, there were still critics who claimed that Google did not provide an opt-out option for users other than not signing into any Google platform. And that was seen to be a violation of EU law, which allows for choices by consumers and competition for consumers. Without this opt-out ability, the critics said, Google then had free reign to gather untold amounts of data on users across the entire Internet and can have discretion on how long to store and keep the information. What do you think about this? Is going through the trouble of changing the policies again worth $200,000? What about the PR hit the company can take if it does nto comply? Is that worth the money Google would pay out? Give us your feedback in the comments section elow.
