Google privately claims to have slowed down privacy regulations in EU


San Francisco, Oct. 22 (EFE) .- Internet giant Google boasts in internal documents that it has successfully slowed down the implementation of new privacy regulations in the European Union (EU), as published this Friday by the New York Times newspaper.

The Times, which cited internal company documents filed in a multi-state lawsuit against Google for alleged monopoly practices, described the incident as a case of political pressure on European regulators.

Ahead of a meeting in 2019 with other big tech companies (including Facebook, Microsoft and Apple), Google said in a report that it had been successful in its efforts to slow down and delay the process of regulating electronic privacy in the world. ‘European Union,’ writes the New York newspaper.

The newspaper also cited another part of the company’s internal document that Google had “worked out of public view, hand-in-hand with other companies” to slow regulation.

For its part, the Wall Street Journal, which also had access to the documentation, pointed out that, according to it, Google takes between 22% and 42% of commission on advertising transactions carried out through its online advertising market, well at above what competing platforms load.

In addition to the popular Internet search engine and all the services that Internet users often use such as Maps, Gmail or Drive, Google has the largest online advertising market, a space dedicated to connecting advertisers with Internet portals and for each transaction in which a commission is taken.
