but this was posted by the commissioner on 7 August, 2012Google Street View Wi-Fi Collection7 August 2012Google wrote to the Office of the Australian Information Commissioner (OAIC) on 27 July 2012 to advise that it had in its possession a portion of payload data collected by Google Street View vehicles in Australia. The payload data was collected from unsecured WiFi networks by Google in 2010. The OAIC conducted an investigation into the collection of the payload data under s 40(2) the Privacy Act 1988 (Cth). After that investigation Google advised the OAIC that in March 2011 all payload data was destroyed. On 6 August 2012, the Privacy Commissioner wrote to Google asking them to destroy this data immediately and confirm that this has taken place via an independent third party. The Commissioner also asked Google to undertake an audit to ensure that no other disks containing this data exist, and to advise him once this audit is completed.Source:http://www.oaic.gov.au/news/statements/statement_120807_google_street_view_wifi_collection.html
In many overseas countries Google is being perused by nation states for remunerative damages for infringements against privacy laws, we're very nice or a bit stupid, I think if someone is doing something to you that you dont like, look at yourself, what is it about you that encourages, enables that behaviour?
