(ANSA) – ROME, NOV 15 – WASHINGTON – Google has agreed to pay the record sum of 392 million dollars to 40 US states after being accused of deceiving users who thought they had disabled location detection in their settings account, while the search engine kept collecting this type of information. The New York Times reports it. According to the states attorneys general, this is the largest Internet privacy agreement in the United States. Under the agreement, adds the NYT, Google will have to clarify the procedures on location tracking starting from 2023.

“Consistent with the improvements we have made in recent years, we have reached an agreement on these investigations which were based on outdated product standards that we have already changed several years ago”: this is how a spokesperson for Google comments on the privacy agreement with 40 states Americans.
