BRUSSELS, April 2 (UPI) -- Six European data protection agencies say they are contemplating legal action against Google over the search engine company's privacy policies.
Regulatory watchdogs in France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Spain and Britain said they may take action after a four-month deadline for Google to make changes to its policies expired, the BBC reported Tuesday.
Those recommendations included allowing users to see what information was being held, provide tools to manage the data and ensure Google didn't retain too much data about users.
As a result, all six data protection bodies said they would open new investigations into Google and how it handled privacy.
"We have engaged fully with the DPAs involved throughout this process, and we'll continue to do so going forward," the spokesman said.
