Internet giant Google is in trouble with the Arizona administration. Managed by pro-Trump Republicans, Arizona launched a legal process that would tighten Google as the US elections approached.
They will legally squeeze Google
Accordingly, the Arizona administration filed a lawsuit against the giant company, claiming that Google’s users showed ads to users by tracking location data without permission and illegal methods.
According to the case that the state prosecutor has overcome, even if users captured GPS data and tell Google that they “do not want to be tracked”, Google starts to track all location data of users silently in the background. It just does not show or record this data to the user. However, records are kept on their servers.
The case is considered crucial because, due to the defense of this case, experts and prosecutors to be sued by the court will have to examine the Google servers. This means getting into the heart of Google. If there is a detail hidden by the internet giant, it will be in the hands of prosecutors. Even more interesting, billions of dollars in fines will be imposed on Google for their unauthorized activities.
A $170 million penalty was imposed recently on YouTube for storing personal data of children under 18 and selling it to advertisers.
