<< Canada's privacy commissioner said Tuesday that Google's recent Wi-Fi sniffing was a serious violation of Canadians' privacy rights and included the collection of personally identifiable information.
Jennifer Stoddart gave the search engine giant until February to implement a series of privacy safeguards; if it complies, she said she will consider the matter closed.
"Our investigation shows that Google did capture personal information – and, in some cases, highly sensitive personal information such as complete e-mails," Stoddart said in a statement.
yes google collected data but that is an old topic.
But this article is sharing details what type of data Google collected.
Considering all data Google gathered in Canada,
Considering the tiny part of them which are e-mails,
Considering the tiny-tiny part of them which are complete e-mails,
I can say that there is a very high chance that e-mails collected were spams.
Then, who cares?
TOMHTML: It *really* doesn't matter is some of these emails were spam. And Canada was not the only country suffering of this threat.
