Safari users in the UK can sue Google over alleged privacy violations

Loek Essers | March 30, 2015
The U.K. Court of Appeal won't block a privacy lawsuit that alleges Google tracked Safari users without authorization, so the three plaintiffs can continue their legal fight against the search company.

In its ruling, the appeals court also addressed the issue of damages, saying that "compensatory damages may be relatively modest" as they tend to be in claims for misuse of private information and for breaches of the Data Protection Act of 1998, but that "the issues of principle are large."

Google did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
