Dutch Watchdog Demands Privacy Changes From Google

A Dutch privacy watchdog on Monday ordered Google to make changes to the way it handles users’ personal data or face fines of up to 15 million euros ($18.7 million).

The College for the Protection of Personal Data announced it is giving the Internet giant until the end of February to comply with measures aimed at giving consumers in the Netherlands more clarity about how their personal information is used across the suite of Google services.
