The Dutch Data Protection Authority has put its threat of a fine of up to 15 million euros against Google to bed after the company revised its data collection and protection protocols, making it compliant with Dutch law, Telecompaper reports. Among the changes Google had to make was to better communicate YouTube’s affiliation with the company and express to users how their data could be shared across the different platforms, the report states. “Since it was first warned by the regulator, Google started a 'privacy campaign' to make sure all users were reminded of its policies and had given explicit permission for sharing personal data,” the report adds.
