Brave accuses Google of using ‘hopelessly vague’ privacy policies that breach GDPR

Ireland might be the base for the next significant privacy lawsuit against Google…:

[…] As part of the complaint, Brave has also asked for Google to provide a complete and sufficiently specific list of the purposes for which Google processes personal data, as well as the relevant legal bases for each purpose. Google allegedly has repeatedly refused to provide a substantive explanation of its processing purposes to Brave, the Chromium-based browser said in the complaint.

The DPC is already conducting an investigation into how Google processes and manages user data, such as GPS datasets. For that investigation, the Irish regulator is seeking to understand whether or not the tech giant has a legal basis for processing user location data, and whether or not these processes are transparent enough to satisfy GDPR.
