UK Google Data Transfer To US Is Just The Start: "Possibilities For Abuse Are Enormous"

The shift, prompted by Britain's exit from the EU, will leave the sensitive personal information of tens of millions with less protection and within easier reach of British law enforcement. But it won't end there.

Google is planning to move its British users' accounts out of the control of European Union privacy regulators, placing them under US jurisdiction instead, the company confirmed on 19 February. The shift, prompted by Britain's exit from the EU, will leave the sensitive personal information of tens of millions with less protection and within easier reach of British law enforcement. But it won't end there.

Alphabet Inc's Google intends to require its British users to acknowledge new terms of service including the new jurisdiction.

"Nothing about our services or our approach to privacy will change, including how we collect or process data, and how we respond to law enforcement demands for users' information," Google said in an emailed statement. "The protections of the UK GDPR will still apply to these users." If that was true, they would leave it where it was and not go to the expense. This is just the start of much more to come.
