“Google Would Now Like to Delete the Remaining Data”

Heather Smith, reporting for Bloomberg:

Google Inc. was asked to provide France’s data-protection authority with information gathered through its Street View service, which it should have deleted after a 2011 fine. […]

“Google apologizes for this error,” the company said today in an e-mailed statement, reiterating it “would now like to delete the remaining data.”

Privacy authorities in Great Britain had previously requested access to the same data that Google has failed to delete in the past year, and which they now would like to remove. Don’t be evil, and all that.
