Google Sued By D.C. And Texas Over Alleged Deceptive Location Tracking Practices

WASHINGTON (Reuters)—Texas and the District of Columbia sued Alphabet Inc’s Google on Monday over what he called deceptive location tracking practices that invade users’ privacy.

Two other state attorneys general plan to file lawsuits as well as part of a bipartisan effort to hold Google accountable over privacy, Washington, D.C., attorney general Karl Racine’s office said in a statement.

“Google falsely led consumers to believe that changing their account and device settings would allow customers to protect their privacy and control what personal data the company could access,” Racine said.

“The truth is that contrary to Google’s representations it continues to systematically surveil customers and profit from customer data. Google’s bold misrepresentations are a clear violation of consumers’ privacy.”

Google spokesman Jose Castaneda said the “attorneys general are bringing a case based on inaccurate claims and outdated assertions about our settings. We have always built privacy features into our products and provided robust controls for location data. We will vigorously defend ourselves and set the record straight.”

Texas attorney general Ken Paxton alleged Google misled consumers by continuing to track their location even when users sought to prevent it.

Google has a “Location History” setting and informs users if they turn it off “the places you go are no longer stored,” Texas said.

Google “continues to track users’ location through other settings and methods that it fails to adequately disclose,” Texas said.

In May 2020, Arizona filed a similar lawsuit against Google over its collection of location data of users. That suit is pending.

  2. In the bar, against the back wall, contained in the bar,
    they are all great ideas. Whatever you need to refer to them as though, coolers (also referred to as
    cool boxes, ice boxes, portable ice chests, chilly bins and much more) are incredibly useful circumstances to own which can make life easier for any person looking to
    make themselves a good picnic, packed lunch or drinks container.
    Why They Are A Better Choice For Hurricane Preparedness – For the price of a single high-quality hard
    sgell cooler you can buy numerous thick-walled foam cooler ice chests that perform equally well, last for
    years, and still have advantages that this metal
    or hard plastic one does not.
