Google Relents, Will Hand Over European Wi-Fi Data

Google Relents, Will Hand Over European Wi-Fi Data

Due to a reporting error, the story, "Google Relents, Will Hand Over European Wi-Fi Data," posted Thursday, misstated the day that Google commented on the matter. Google's comments came on Thursday.

The story has been corrected on the wire, and the second paragraph now reads:

A Google spokesman said Thursday that the data should be handed over within a matter of days. Last week, the company found itself in conflict with a privacy regulator at the German city of Hamburg, who wanted access to the data. Google said that it wasn't sure that handing over the data would be legal.

Paragraph five now reads:

The company plans to hand over data to German, French and Spanish authorities, according to the Financial Times, (FT) which first reported this latest development on Thursday.
