Google’s lawsuit is partially resolved.
A customer privacy case against Google Alphabet Inc. that claimed the business was spying on them even after they refused to reveal their internet habits was successful.
Claims that Google tracked users’ personal information, including IP addresses and personal information, were rejected by U.S. District Judge Yvonne Gonzalez Rogers.
The company faces multiple privacy lawsuits
Legislators are questioning Google’s data harvesting practices, and a wave of state and consumer privacy cases have been launched.
The internet giant declared that it would stop using alternative tracking techniques and abolish third-party cookies by 2024, which enable advertisers to keep tabs on consumers’ online behavior.
Google said in court that many potential customers were aware of and gave their agreement to the company’s data collection to limit its potential growth.
