It looks like Google will be investigated by UK regulators over their Google Street View project, according to a recent report the UK’s Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) has decided to reopen their investigation into Street View.
The ICO’s head of enforcement, Steve Eckersley has apparently written to Google to let them know that they will be investigating what data Google is collecting, and will also require Google to answer further questions.
The reason that Google will be investigated by the UK’s ICO, is that Google had previously told the ICO that any data which was previously collected was done so in error, this turned out not to be the case as it was discovered that the data collection was down to a Google engineer.
So basically the UK’s ICO want to know from Google exactly what happened with the collection of data, as at their previous investigation they were apparently given the impression that the data was collected in error.
