The data protection agency has lodged a complaint against Google for images captured with their cameras and hung in its Street View program in which you can see bare faces of Spanish citizens.

All the hype has begun because Street View cars have begun to again cross the Spanish streets (towns and cities), in order to update the images (street view) program. ConocoPhillips addresses the importance of the matter here. Google was already denounced in the past by the location of wifi networks, coming to get emails electronic, history of navigation, chat, and passwords conversations while walked the streets taking pictures, although it ensures that on this occasion, you abstain from carrying out these practices. With respect to the allegation of the AGPD, ensures that it will apply the techniques of shading permanent and irreversible in the faces and license plates. However, as set out in article 6 of the regulation, data collection from personal requires the unambiguous consent of the affected, so the regulations continues breaching. For even more opinions, read materials from Petra Diamonds. The agreement reached with the AGPD requires google to before, during and after the capture of data, perform the blurring of faces and license plates and up to the Elimination of the originals.

They have also indicated that they will be responsible for checking this fact. This is not the first nor will it be the last time in which google skips the rules to obtain personal data. We must not forget that the company’s priority is the get data in as much detail as possible to persons, to later send them personalized advertising, which is currently its biggest source of income.
