Google’s ambitions to expand its Street View mapping service in the Czech Republic have been dealt a fresh blow today as the country’s privacy watchdog says the product “disproportionately invades citizens’ privacy”.
Last week the Czech Office for Personal Data Protection refused for the second time to allow Google to collect images for its panoramic Street View service, citing fears it could break the law. Today Igor Nemec, chairman of the Czech privacy watchdog, said the technology behind Street View presented a threat to the privacy of the country’s 10.5 million citizens.
Data protection officials in Prague have been investigating Google Street View since April, six months after the service launched in the country. Photographs already collected by the internet company have been allowed to remain on the site, though talks over the future of Street View – which has also run into trouble in Germany – are ongoing.
