Because of privacy violation by secret monitoring of their activities on the Internet, USA Federal Trade Commission designated to "Google" company a record punishment from 22.5 million dollars.
"Google" Internet company will pay a record punishment from 22.5 million dollars because of the violation of privacy of users with secret monitoring of their Internet activities. Because "Google" online monitored the activities of millions of users which use "Apple" software to browse web sites Safari, the Federal Trade Commission United States of America has designated biggest punishment ever which was ever imposed to an company for violation of the agreement.
In the bargain in an earlier case, "Google" entered 20th-year of the agreement with the Commission, by which among others committed not to bring users in a misleading relating to their privacy on the Internet.
The Commission opened the investigation six months ago, after the discovery of the investigators at Stanford University that "Google" annulled Safari security measures which prevent someone from outside without permission monitor "surfing" on the internet.
Bypassing the apple security measures is in contradiction with the statement on "Google" site for visitor’s help, where the users of Safari are convinced that they don’t have to take additional measures in order that "Google" would not monitor their activities on the Internet.
This mismatch between "Google “words and actions it was on the focus of investigation of the Federal Trade Commission.”Google" has annulled this modification on Safari as soon as the abuse was reported. The company has not admitted any violation in this case.
Monitoring of user activity Web sites and advertisers use for more targeted marketing based on interests and preferences which reveal their "surfing". For tracking serve so called cookies, the information’s which website leaves on the computer of its visitors. /RTS/
