Google has to pay 22,5 milion dollars

Setting fines, the highest ever, which has been condemned by the U.S. Trade Commission, FTC, for violations of its orders and instructions. The sum imposed under a deal between Google and the FTC.

Google denies the crime, but the FTC refers to the U.S. Department of Justice, accusing Google of placing the cookies in the Safari users’ computers. Meanwhile, Google will be represented to users that the search giant did not intend to track their movements via cookies, or to provide users with targeted ads. Yet there was just that, according to the FTC. Google has previously been severely criticized for tracking cookies from Safari, which was unveiled early this year.

In addition to fines ordered now Google also to disable cookies in users’ computers, plates and smart phones. The fine is determined after a deal with Google, says the FTC.

– Record amount of this settlement sends a clear signal to all companies that have received an order from the FTC issued against him.

– No matter how big or small it is, so all companies need to follow the FTC’s instructions and keep their promises on privacy to customers. Otherwise, they are forced to pay several times what it had cost to follow our instructions from the beginning, says Jon Leibowitz, Chairman of the FTC, in a statement.

For Google is fine itself a trifle, but it also gives the company negative publicity. A spokeswoman for Google says that the FTC’s judgment, old content posted before Apple had changed its rules on the handling of cookies.

– Google has now amended the hand and taken steps to remove all advertising cookies, but did not collect any personal information from Apple’s Web browser, she said.
