Google complies with Russian personal data protection policy

10:45 11/11/2013

MOSCOW, November 11 (RAPSI) - Google has amended its Russian version of the confidentiality policy, to ensure better protection of users’ sensitive information, senator Ruslan Gattarov told the press on Monday.

Earlier a special Upper House commission performed an evaluation of confidentiality policies of various Internet companies. Most of the agreements revealed violations of Russian personal data protection legislation. Google’s privacy policy, according to Gattarov, gave vague and dubious reasons for transferring users’ personal data to third parties.

As a result, users who accept Google's confidentiality terms likely do not know that they are giving the company permission to use their personal data not only in the service that they requested to use, but also in all the company's other services.

In June, Google refused to attend a meeting of Gattarov's commission regarding the scandal that broke out after fugitive NSA analyst Edward Snowden told media that the US authorities are tapping directly into the servers of major Internet companies.

Gattarov  called for an international inquiry into reports that Google, Microsoft, Facebook and Twitter provide the US special services with direct access to user data.
