Google will be told on Tuesday to unravel the controversial changes introduced in March to its European [url="http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/privacy"]privacy[/url] policy, legal sources have told the Guardian.

The French [url="http://www.guardian.co.uk/technology/data-protection"]data protection[/url] commissioner, the CNIL, will be holding a press conference on Tuesday to announce the results of its deliberations together with the data protection chiefs of the other European Union countries.

As [url="http://www.guardian.co.uk/technology/2012/oct/08/google-privacy-policy-data-protection"]exclusively revealed by the Guardian last week[/url], they have determined that Google's changes breached EU law because they did not give users any chance to opt out of the changes.

Next the CNIL

When is the order to unravel these excessively long news posts going to be issued by the EU government? Would be a lot more beneficial

Why? Because they respect privacy? Google don't have a leg to stand on here; EU laws on privacy are quite strict and not hard to follow.

If Google want to take the stance that they can't separate the data, they're just going to get told "tough".

I see you're trying to score cheap points.

Apparently not, because it looks like they're protecting EU citizens' privacy...
