New Mexico settles lawsuits with Google over child privacy online
The state of New Mexico in the USA has settled two lawsuits filed against Google by the Attorney General over issues related to privacy of children. It was alleged in the lawsuit that Google was collecting information through Chromebooks and its G-Suite for Education programs about children without consent.
As part of the settlement, Google will be creating a Google New Mexico Kids Initiative and set aside millions of dollars for child privacy and safety efforts. School administrators will be provided with tools for protecting students’ personal data.
