Google's problems with the Dutch Data Protection Authority

Google has violated (as usual) Dutch privacy laws. It seems to be a custom of the company, which combines the personal data it stores from its many different online services, which contrasts with Dutch law.

After a Dutch data protection authority (DPA) lasting seven months, Google was invited to a meeting to discuss the issues. Depending on how the discussions will evolve, there will be decisions about Google's fate in the Netherlands, as the Reuters.
"Our privacy policy respects European law and allows us to create simpler and more efficient services. "We have fully studied with the Dutch DPA and will continue to do so in the future," Google said in a statement in response to the authorities' decision.

It is, of course, not the first time that a European nation expresses concern that local data is being stored in foreign Clouds.
"Google creates an invisible web of our personal data without our consent. This is prohibited by law, "said Jacob Kohnstamm, president of the Dutch Data Protection Authority.
